Retiring Alleluias For Lent
Today is the last Sunday of Epiphany, which means today was the last Sunday to say or sing "alleluia" for several weeks. There was a discussion on this subject over at Grandmère Mimi’s the other day. It made me think about what hymns everyone sang at church today. At the 7:30 am (English language Choral Eucharist) we sang: Alleluia, Song of Gladness; O Wondrous Type, O Vision Fair (of course!!); Alleluia, Sing to Jesus; Alleluia; He Touched Me (!?!); and Ye Watchers And Ye Holy Ones(just like you, ePisco!). At la Misa a las 10:30 am we sang Caridad y Comprensión, Aleluya; Ale, Ale, ¡Aleluya!; Busca Primero El Reino De Dios (Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God); El Señor Nos Ama Hoy(Ricardo and I really kicked that one!) Gloria, Gloria, Aleluya(the tune is the Battle Hymn of the Republic, but the words are quite different). I sang the Easter Alleluia at the Fraction and used the Easter Dismissal, 'cuz dey gots plenty alleluias dem.
So, what did ya'll sing today?
I See You!
