Youth Choir 1st Church Stockbridge

Please Note:  There is no rehearsal on Sunday, February 18.
See you on the 25th at 9:30AM

2/11/18 Beautiful Music Children!  You were small in numbers but great in voice.
Great Pageant singing, children!
Caroling 12/10 was very fun.  Nice job on the bells and singing!
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!!

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 underlined 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:

NEW MUSIC & LINKS COMING SOON.............

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. (Hallelu!) I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout. (Amen).  I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout (Hallelu!) 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.  (Hallelu) I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray. (Amen) I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray (Hallelu) and obey the spirit of the Lord. (Amen)
Pray, pray, pray (clap, clap, clap).  Sing, sing, sing (clap, clap, clap).  Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap, clap). Pray, pray, pray.
 
And obey the spirit of the Lord.
(Shout: Amen!)

2/11/18 Peace I Leave With You (full version with youth singing)
Peace I Leave With You (no repeats version)
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.

Come, Lord Jesus
(December 24 - Pageant)
1.Come, Lord Jesus, come to us, Jesus come.  Come, Lord Jesus, come to us, Jesus come.
We are waiting, waiting, Lord for you.  Waiting, waiting Lord for you.  We are waiting, waiting Lord for you, waiting for you.
2.Mary, Joseph, waited too, Jesus come.  Mary, Joseph waited too, Jesus come.
We are waiting, waiting, Lord for you.  Waiting, waiting Lord for you.  We are waiting, waiting Lord for you, waiting for you.
3.No more weeks to Christmas Day, Jesus come.  No more weeks to Christmas Day, Jesus Come.
We are waiting, waiting, Lord for you.  Waiting, waiting Lord for you.  We are waiting, waiting Lord for you, waiting for you.

O, Come All Ye Faithful

Oh, come let us adore him.  Oh, come let us adore him.  Oh, come let us adore him.  Christ the Lord!

(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.


(November 5) We Come To Your Table Lord Lyrics
1. We come to your table Lord. You have called us, we are yours. 
You will nourish, you will lead. Giving every gift we need. 
Chorus: 
Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so. 
2. You have chosen us to be members of one family. 
In your love you made us all, giving strength to hear your call

Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so.

Sing once all together: 
Love, love, love love, Christians this is your call:  Love your neighbor as yourself, for God loves us all.
