Youth Choir 1st Church Stockbridge



Sunday 12/10 5PM JE Room: Dinner/Carols/Dessert where we will sing "Jingle Bells" & "O Come All Ye Faithful" Dinner starts at our church at 5PM.
Sunday 11/5 "We Come to Your Table, Lord" went very nicely!  Thank you, children.
10/22/17 Wow!  Children, you performed the first song wonderfully.  Great Work!!
Youth Choir meets from 11:15AM-Noon most Sundays.  The children perform music in the Worship Service on various Sundays every few weeks.  Children attending Sunday School should stay right in the smaller room when it ends to enjoy the Choir snack and then start rehearsing.  Children not in Sunday School should be brought or sent to Youth Choir by a parent at 11:15AM.  Please join us at 11:55AM to hear what we have been working on and pick up your child.  Thank you.

Below are music links and lyrics to practice with at home.  It is especially helpful (and fun) for pre-readers to do some singing at home with an adult to help them with the lyrics.
 
The titles are the sing-a-long links.  They should give you the idea of how the song goes so that you can sing at home a bit.  Please let me know if you have trouble with the links:

Jingle bells, jingle bells. Jingle all the way.  Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh!

Jingle bells, Jingle bells. Jingle all the way.  Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh - hey.  Jingle bells, jingle bells. Jingle all the way.  Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh!
Dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh. O'er the fields we go laughing all the way.  Bells on bobtail ring making spirits bright.  What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight! Oh...
Jingle bells, Jingle bells. Jingle all the way.  Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh - hey.  Jingle bells, jingle bells. Jingle all the way.  Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh!

O, Come All Ye Faithful
(December 10 Carol/Dinner)
5:00PM the dinner starts at our church and then the carol walk happens from our church to St. Paul's to conclude with dessert at St. Paul's Church in Stockbridge.

(December 3, 10, 17 & 24)
YC is learning the unison parts to help out when it is used in the service for advent candle lighting.  This is not an actual YC "performance".
Lyrics for unison section: Emanuel: God with us, King of kings and Lord of lords.  Come fill our hearts with your (hope, peace, love, joy, light) and reign forever more.

(January) I'm Gonna Sing Lyrics
I'm gonna sing when the spirit says sing. I'm gonna sing when the spirit says sing. I'm gonna sing when the spirit says sing and obey the spirit of the Lord.
Sing, sing, sing (Clap hands 3 times: clap, clap, clap) Sing, sing sing (clap, clap, clap).  Sing, sing, sing (clap, clap, clap). Sing, sing, sing.

I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout. (Spoken: Hallelujah!) I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout. (Amen).  I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout (Hallelujah!) and obey the spirit of the Lord (Amen)
Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap clap). Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap clap). Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap clap). Shout, shout, shout.

I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray.  I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray.  I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray and obey the spirit of the Lord
(Descant Happens at the same time as the above line) The spirit says pray, the spirit says pray, the spirit says pray.  I'm gonna pray, pray, pray.
Pray, pray, pray (clap, clap, clap).  Pray, pray, pray (cap, clap, clap). Pray, pray, pray (clap, clap, clap).  Pray, pray, pray.

Sing, sing sing (clap, clap, clap). Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap, clap). Pray, pray, pray (clap, clap, clap). And obey the spirit of the Lord.
(Shout: Amen!)

Peace I Leave With You (full version with youth singing)
Peace I Leave With You (no repeats version)
(We will be saving this for another time later in the year)
We will sing the "no repeats" version but I put the other link up because it is fun to see and listen to.  The adult choir will hum the 2nd part while the YC sings the 1st part.  The "no repeats" recording only sings the 1st part. 
Lyrics without repeats: Peace, Peace, peace I leave with you.  Peace unto you.  Peace unto you.  Peace, peace peace.  Peace I give unto you.  Unto you, to you, I give unto you.
This is my gift.  This is my gift.  This is my gift, my gift unto you.  My peace I give, I give unto you.
