Music for Ascension and Pentecost

O Clap Your Hands – John Rutter, The Cambridge Singers

O Clap Your Hands - John Rutter, The Cambridge Singers, City of London Sinfonia

O clap your hands together, all ye people: O sing unto God with the voice of melody. For the Lord is high, and to be feared: he is the great King upon all the earth. He shall subdue the people under us: and the nations under our feet. He shall choose out an heritage for us: even the worship of Jacob, whom he loved. God is gone up with a merry noise: and the Lord with the sound of the trump. O sing praises, sing praises unto our God: O sing praises, sing praises unto our King. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. (O clap your hands together, all ye people.)

Psalm 47, vv. 1–7

Ev’ry Time I Feel the Spirit – arr. William L. Dawson

Ev’ry Time I Feel the Spirit arr. William L. Dawson

Refrain:
Every time I feel the Spirit
moving in my heart I will pray.
Yes, every time I feel the Spirit
moving in my heart I will pray.

Upon the mountain, when my Lord spoke,
out of God’s mouth came fire and smoke.
Looked all around me, it looked so fine,
till I asked my Lord if all was mine. [Refrain]

Jordan River, chilly and cold,
it chills the body but not the soul.
There is but one train upon this track;
it runs to heaven and then right back. [Refrain]

I am with you always – John Rutter, Cambridge Singers

I am with you always - John Rutter, Cambridge Singers, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. At that day ye shall know that I am in the Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Matthew 28, v.20,  John 14, vv. 18–21, 27

If Ye Love Me – Thomas Tallis – Cambridge Singers

Thomas Tallis - If Ye Love Me

If ye love me, keep my commandments, and I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever, even the Spirit of truth.

John 14, vv. 15–17
