Songs, Hymns & Music for Pentecost A (June 4 2017)

Alternate Gospel: John 7:37-39
The promise of living water from Christ
  • *Unknown Source Dry (Somerville) An excellent song seeking refreshment from the living water and grace of Christ. It will need a little time for teaching, or ask your musicians to sing it. We used this at Brunswick on Ash Wednesday. Sound sample and sheet music.  
  • StJ / GtG048 / GC(II)505 / W&R444 / G(3)582 / URW144 / Srce2-502 Rain Down (Cortez) A good simple gospel song. A very easy chorus, and good verses too. 
  • AoV2-006 / The tide has turned Deeper River / There's a river running deep within the silence of our souls (Digby Hannah). An excellent song of restoration for tired desert-like souls. Lyrics. 
  • ATW 435 Wellsprings / Like the woman of old. Another song of seeking water in the desert. A favourite of our congregation. Lyrics 
  • NCH045 Christ is the Mountain of Horeb which is flowing / Cristo es la pena Puerto Rican pasodoble folk melody. Very repetitive and easy. Can start slow and get fast, which is always a winner move. We have not sung this for a while. Youtube of some cool pianist doing a groovy jazzy version. Good for kids.  
  • SLW / G(II)526 / GC728 / GC(II)725 / G(3)819 / URW419 / Lau902 Peace Is Flowing Like a River (Anon) A simple chorus. Great for kids and older people. You won't need to provide words for this after the first couple of verses, because only the first word changes. If you don't provide all the words, sometimes people look around them and notice each other. Good for kids.
  • *SP&P034 Come and fill all my life (Bruxvoort-Colligan) A gentle and very simple song. Would be good for a meditation.   
  • TiS 665 / AoV2-008 / Iona (Common Ground) / CH360 / A&M563 / VU117 / StJ / SP246 / Lau889 Jesus Christ is waiting (Bell) A good and well known hymn. Lyrics here (scroll down just a little bit). 
  • Sounds of Living Water 77 There's a river of life flowing out from me (Casebolt) I have found the lyrics to this, but I can't remember the second part at all. I think I only know the chorus. Maybe it's in a scripture in song book too. It's a happy clappy. Good for kids.

"Send us your spirit" - lyrics Ruth Duck, not sure of the music.
"Spirit, I Have heard you Calling" words and music Thew Elliot
"Leading the Dance" words and music by Lee Krahenbuhl "winds of the spirit are chaning so fast and the ones who were last are now leading the dance."

the last two give permission to reproduce for use in worship, not sure about the first.
