Psalm 33

MP3 Music Playlist: 
I substituted missile for horse and great power for great strength as the psalmist's intention to speak to us today.
Lyrics
1)Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous;
2)it is fitting for the upright to praise him 3)Praise the LORD with the harp;
4)Make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
1)Sing to him a new song;
2)play skillfully, and shout for joy.
3)For the word of the LORD is right and true; 4)he is faithful in all he does.
1)The LORD loves righteousness and justice; 2)the earth is full of his unfailing love.
3)By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, 4) their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
1)He gathers the waters of the sea into jars 2) he puts the deep into storehouses.
3)Let all the earth fear the LORD;
4) let all the people of the world revere him.
1)For he spoke, and it came to be;
2) he commanded, and it stood firm.

Responsorial Psalm 24(25):4-6,7b-9 for the 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B (Sunday of the Word of God) - Lord, Make Me Know Your Ways

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 24(25):4-6,7b-9 for the 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

Lord, make me know your ways.

Lord, make me know your ways.
Lord, teach me your paths.
Make me walk in your truth, and teach me:
for you are God my saviour.

Lord, make me know your ways.

Remember your mercy, Lord,
and the love you have shown from of old.
In your love remember me,
because of your goodness, O Lord.

Lord, make me know your ways.

The Lord is good and upright.
He shows the path to those who stray,

O Sacred Head

MP3 Music Playlist: 
The hymn is based on a long medieval Latin poem, Salve mundi salutare. The last part of the poem, from which the hymn is taken, is addressed to Christ's head and begins "Salve caput cruentatum" The poem was translated into German by the Lutheran hymnist Paul Gerhardt (1607–1676). The hymn was first translated into English in 1752 by John Gambold (1711–1771), an Anglican vicar in Oxfordshire. His translation begins, "O Head so full of bruises". In 1830, an American Presbyterian minister, James Waddel Alexander (1804–1859) made a new hymn translation. Alexander's translation, beginning "O sacred head, now wounded", became one of the most widely used in 19th and 20th-century hymnals.

Thank You For Your Gift of Faith

MP3 Music Playlist: 
LYRICS:
Thank you for your gift of Faith and a share in your suffering In your death in your Life
Deep inside in places unknown, You await, patiently, for me to open -to open more to your Love
Let me serve show me how what to do in everything to do Your Will - I’ll be free - I’ll be free
Please teach me the spirit of poverty, chastity, obedience Devotedly - joyfully
Shepherd me in charity, humility, and solitude So I can be one with You - one with You
You're in control make me whole - burn my soul and
Prune me back let me start to see the sparks - know your Heart
Our Mother pleads to fast and pray like never before
More and more - keep it simple and raise a score for God’s Mercy - for God’s mercy
All your children everywhere near and far are the stars
Of your family - bring us HOME - for Your glory - for Your Glory

Responsorial Psalm 39(40):2,4,7-10 for the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B - Here I Am, Lord! I Come To Do Your Will

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 39(40):2,4,7-10 for the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

Here I am, Lord! I come to do your will.

I waited, I waited for the Lord
and he stooped down to me;
he heard my cry.
He put a new song into my mouth,
praise of our God.

Here I am, Lord! I come to do your will.

You do not ask for sacrifice and offerings,
but an open ear.
You do not ask for holocaust and victim.
Instead, here am I.

Here I am, Lord! I come to do your will.

Psalm 34

MP3 Music Playlist: 
I posted this psalm before but left out a strophe(stanza) So I recorded it again.
LYRICS:
                     Psalm 34
I will extol the Lord at all times;
    His praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord;
    let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
 
Glorify the Lord with me;
    let us exalt his name together
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
    he delivered me from all my fears.

In the silver silence

You're the One (Schletty, Page, Gomez)

I wrote the melody and lyrics for this song.

For the first version, David Gomez Sanz recorded electric guitar and synths in 2005, set to my original simple lyrics that were written in 1973 while a student at St. John's University (Collegeville, MN).

For the second version, Paul F. Page created a beautiful piano and flute arrangement, set to expanded lyrics that I wrote in 2009.

Hymn of the Month

Each month I feature a short story on a Catholic devotional hymn with a short biography on the author, the composer(s), and a short reflection. I have been doing these short write-ups for a couple years.

As part of my series on Catholic hymns, I have chosen a favorite hymn of mine, Mary! How Sweetly Falls That Word. This is a beautiful hymn that honors the Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Take a few moments to read about the author and composer of this beautiful Catholic hymn and be sure to share this story with all your friends.

Many of the hymns that I feature are hymns that I sang in St. Mary's Choir (1977-2010) and new hymns that I have added to my repertoire. These hymns have kept me grounded in my Catholic Faith and I turn to them in good times and bad. They are a source of comfort and spiritual nourishment to me, and I hope for you as well. I want to share them with you because some of you may never have heard them. They are prayerful and meaningful with approved texts by the Catholic Church.

Please visit my website Mother of Mercy Catholic Hymns and click on HYMN OF THE MONTH.

A Joyful Battle Cry

MP3 Music Playlist: 
I am reading Jesus of Nazareth- Holy Week -  a second time by Pope Benedict. For anyone who has not read it, I highly recommend it. It was through His humanity - His humility, His obedience and His laying down His human life for us, as the second Adam, that he waged spiritual warfare and defeated Satan and won for us salvation/Eternal Life. This victory was won with the close collaboration of the new Eve as St. Irenaeus and many other Church fathers have pointed out. I wrote this song after pondering this. I pasted the lyrics before and now I have uploaded the song successfully.
