1. The Family Song
I’ll walk in the rain by your side,
I’ll cling to the warmth of your tiny hand.
I’ll do anything to help you understand,
I’ll love you more than anybody can!

And the wind will whisper your name to me,
Little birds will sing along in time.
The leaves will bow down as you walk by,
And morning bells will chime.

I’ll be there when you’re feeling down,
To kiss away the tears if you cry.
I’ll share with you all the happiness I found,
A reflection of the love in your eyes.

And I’ll sing you a song of the rainbow,
Whisper all the joy that is mine.
The leaves will bow down as you walk by,
And morning bells will chime.

‘For Baby For Bobby,’ John Denver

2. Pescador De Hombres (Lord, You Have Come)                               Cesareo Gabarain
Vs. 1. Tu has venido-a la-o ri lla, no-has bus ca do ni-a sa bios ni-a ri cos; tan so lo quie res que
yo te si ga.
             Se nor, me-has mi ra do-a los o jos,
             son ri en do has di cho mi nom bre,
             en la-a re na he de ja do mi bar ca,
             jun to-a ti bus ca re o tro mar.

Vs. 2. Tu sa bes bien lo que tengo; en mi bar ca no-hay o ro ni-es pa das, tan so lo re des y mi tra
ba jo.

Vs. 3. Tu ne ce si tas mis ma nos, mi can san cio que-a o tros des can se, a mor que quie ra se
quir a man do.

Vs. 4. Tu pes ca dor de-o tros la gos, an sia-e tern na de al mas que-es pe ran, a mi go bue no,
que-a si me lla mas.
English – Vs. 1. Lord, when you came to the seashore, neither searching for the rich nor the
wise, desiring only that I might follow.
             O, Lord, with your eyes set upon me,
             gently smiling, you have spoken my name;
             all I longed for I have found by the water,
             at your side, I will seek other shores.

Vs. 2. Lord, see my goods, my possessions; in my boat you find no power, no wealth, Will you
accept, then, my nets and labor?

Vs. 3. Lord, take my hands and direct them, help me spend myself in seeking the lost, returning
love for the love you gave me.

Vs. 4. Lord, as you drift on the waters, be the resting place of my restless heart, my life’s
companion, my friend and refuge.

Uncle Vic and Aunt Constance love this song when Hector sings it at Sunday Mass with the
Family Choir! A teacher from OLQH Elementary School taped us and taught it to her class! You
just never know…

3. Benediction Song
        May the Lord mighty Lord, Bless and keep you forever.
        Grant you peace perfect peace, courage in every endeavor.
        Lift your eyes and see His face and His grace forever.
        May the Lord mighty Lord, Bless and keep you forever.

4. One Bread, One Body                                  John Foley, S.J.
Refrain: One bread, one body, one Lord of all, one cup of blessing which we bless.
And we, though many throughout the earth, we are one body in this one Lord.

Vs. 1. Gentile or Jew, servant or free, woman or man, no more.
Vs. 2. Many the gifts, many the works, one in the Lord of all.
Vs. 3. Grain for the fields, scattered and grown, gathered to one, for all.

5. Holy God We Praise Thy Name                             Ignaz Franz, 1719-1790
Vs. 1 Holy God, we praise Thy Name! Lord of all, we bow before thee;
All on earth Thy scepter claim, All in heav’n above adore Thee;
Infinite Thy vast domain, Everlasting is Thy reign.

Vs. 2 Hark! The loud celestial hymn Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and Seraphim In unceasing chorus praising,
Fill the heav’ns with sweet accord: Holy, holy, holy Lord!

Vs. 3 Holy Father, Holy Son, Holy Spirit, Three we name Thee,
While in essence only One, Undivided God we claim Thee,
And adoring bend the knee, While we own the mystery. Amen.

6. "On This Day, 0 Beautiful Mother"
        -Tribute to the Blessed Mother and St. Joseph, Our Family Patron-

Refrain:       On This Day, a Beautiful Mother, On This Day we give Thee our
               love. Near Thee, Madonna, fondly we hover, trusting Thy gentle
               care to prove.
Verse 1:       On this day we ask to share, Dearest Mother, Thy sweet care;
               aid us ere our feet astray wander from Thy guiding way.
Verse 2:                                                      s
               Queen of angels, deign to hear lisping children' humble prayer;
               young hearts gain, O Virgin pure, sweetly to Thyself allure.

       Lift your eyes and see His face and His grace forever.
       May the Lord mighty Lord, Bless and keep you forever.

7. “When You Pray"
Verse 1:    At the close of the day when you kneel to pray, will you remember
            me? I need help every day, this is why I pray, will you remember me?
Chorus:     When You Pray Will You Pray For Me, for I need His love and His
            care; When You Pray Will You Pray For Me, will you whisper my
            name in your prayer?
Verse 2:    And so all through the years, when you kneel in tears, will you.
            remember me? Till my soul is pure white and immersed in light
            will you remember me?
2nd Chorus: When I pray I will pray for you, for you need His love and His care;
            when I pray I will pray for you, I will whisper your name in my prayer.

8. O Holy Night

                                          ALL TOGETHER…
               Blessed Are You, Lord Our God, Who Daily Gifts Us With Time.

Bernadette - You who are Lord and Creator of Space and Time
        yet who lives beyond them,
        we praise You and honor You
        for the gift of minutes, hours, days and years.
Each second of life that You give is precious and profound.
Constance - We pause now so as not to take these gifts for granted-
        so that we may remember in a holy way
        that all time is holy,
        a gift which calls forth
        songs of gratitude from our hearts.
We pause to gratefully remember
        those whole persons of ages past
        who call us to measure time in a godly way.
We call to mind:
        Noah, counting forty rainy days and nights,
        Job, waiting with longing in prayerful patience,
        and Mary of Nazareth, numbering her nine months.
Bernadette - For those persons today who call us
        to take time for work and for play,
        to make time for love and praise,
        to create time for rest
        and the leisure necessary for creation,
        we lift up our hearts in thanks.
We who live in the present
        recall the past
        so that by our remembrance we might more fittingly prepare
        for the future time.
Constance - We who stand in the middle
        of a trinity of time-
        past, present and future-
        do bless You, Source and Sustainer of All Seasons.
Blessed are You, Lord our God,
        who daily gifts us with time.
AMEN! (‘Prayers for the Domestic Church’ by Edward Hays)

4. PawPaw and MawMaw would sing,
                   “A tiny tuned-up nose, cheeks just like a rose,
                 so sweet from head to toe; that little girl of mine.
             Two eyes that shine so bright, two lips that kiss goodnight,
                Two arms that hold me tight; that little boy of mine.
              No one will ever know just what your coming has meant.
              Because I love you so, you’re something heaven has sent.
                You’re all the world to me, you climb upon my knee.
                  To me you’ll always be, that little girl of mine!”
