  1. Charles Tindley (arr. Barbara W. Baker) | The Storm is Passing Over



    Have courage my soul and let us journey on.
    Though the night is dark and I am far from home.

    Thanks be to God the morning light appears.
    The storm is passing over, Hallelu.
    Halleluia, Halleluia, the storm is passing over, Hallelu.

    Traditional Gospel

    • Ilan Balzac, soloist
  2. Christopher Tye | Give almes of thy goods



    Give almes of thy goods, and turn never thy face from any poor man:
    And then the face of the Lord shall not be turned away from thee.

    Tobit 4:7


  3. Richard Nance | Set Me as a Seal



    Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm;
    For love is strong as death.

    Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.
    Set me as a seal…

    Song of Solomon

    • Erin Chen, flute
  4. Bob Chilcott, arr. | The Gift to be Simple



    ‘Tis the gift to be simple, ‘tis the gift to be free,
    ‘Tis the gift to come down where you ought-a be,

    And when we find ourselves in a place just right,
    ‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

    When true simplicity is gained,
    To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
    To turn, turn will be our delight

    Till by turning, turning we come round right.

    Traditional Shaker

  5. Stephen Paulus, arr. | The Road Home



    Tell me where is the road
    I can call my own,
    That I left, that I lost,

    So long ago?
    All these years I have wandered,
    Oh when will I know

    There’s a way, there’s a road that will lead me home?

    After wind, after rain,

    When the dark is done,
    As I wake from a dream
    In the gold of day,

    Through the air there’s a calling
    From far away,
    There’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.

    Rise up, follow me,

    Come away is the call,
    With love in your heart
    As the only song;
    There is no such beauty as where you belong,

    Rise up, follow me,
    I will lead you home.
