Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say rejoice. Let your softness be known unto all men, the Lord is e’en at hand. Be careful for nothing, but in all prayer and supplication, let your petitions be manifest unto God, with giving of thanks. And the peace of God which passeth all understandng, keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Amen

MOTET: A Clare Benediction Words & Music: Rutter
May the Lord show his mercy upon you;
May the light of his presence be your guide:
May he guard you and uphold you;
May his spirit be ever by your side.
When you sleep, may his angels watch over you;
When you wake, may he fill you with his grace.
May you love him and serve him all your days,
Then in heaven may you see his face.
May the Lord’s loving kindness surround you;
Keep you safe as you journey on your way:
May he lead you and inspire you;
As he grants you the gift of each new day.
May he bless all your loved ones and cherish them;
Every friend, every stranger at your door:
In the name of his Son, our Saviour Christ,
May God bless you, now and evermore.

O Word of God most high, on thee alone relying,
Eternal Day of earth and skies. We break the peace of night
With our repentant crying, Saviour, hear and turn thine eyes.

Spread over us the fire of Thy mercy here abounding,
Let hell retire before thy voice, disperse the clouds of sleep
Our drowsy souls surrounding, and lead us back to love thy laws.

O Christ, look down with favour on this thy congregation
Assembled for thy praise. Receive the songs we offer
To thee, our true salvation, and send us forth with gifts of grace

Like most Choirs and Choral Societies December was a busy time for us, so Happy New Year to all our followers. We had cause for celebration during December too. We added 2 more RSCM Gold Awards to the 5 we already have, congratulations to Mic and Nicky on your success. We also presented some Long Service Awards to 11 Choristers, who between them, have sung in the choir for a total of 244 years. Our Chairman celebrated 60yrs of being in the Choir back in September, so between them all they have over 300 years of loyalty.

INTROIT: Tomorrow shall be my dancing day
Words:, English traditional, Music: arr D Willcocks
Tomorrow shall be my dancing day: I would my true love did so chance
To see the legend of my play, to call my true love to my dance
Sing O my love, O my love, my love, my love; this I have done for my true love.

Then was I born of a virgin pure, of her I took fleshly substance;
Thus was I knit to man’s nature, to call my true love to my dance
Sing O my love, O my love, my love, my love; this I have done for my true love.

In a manger laid and wrapped I was, so very poor this was my chance,
betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass, to call my true love to my dance
Sing O my love, O my love, my love, my love; this I have done for my true love.

MOTET: Lullay my liking Words: Middle English poem, Music: Gustav Holst
