    The theme for January is Integrity, and this song puts integrity into concrete terms: keeping a promise.

    In every house, I will enter for good.
    In every field, I will do only good.
    By every river I will turn my hand toward good.
    This is a promise I will keep.
     
    This is a promise I will keep.
    This is a promise I will keep.
    I will turn my hand toward good.
    This is a promise I will keep.
     
    And if I am asked to turn my hand toward harm, toward hate,
    And if I am asked to turn my thoughts toward harm, toward hate,
    And if I am asked to turn my life toward harm, toward hate,
    Though it would profit me, I would refuse.
     
    For all of the dreams of the children,
    daughters of the sons of daughters, for all their dreams.
    For all of the hopes of the children,
    daughters of the sons of daughters, for all their hopes.
    For all of the promise of the children,
    daughters of the sons of daughters, for all their promise,
    and for seven generations.
     

    This number by Nick Page was commissioned by the Teaneck Community Chorus, Teaneck, New Jersey, Steve Bell, Director.

  • 9:15 onlySanctuary

    This Sunday is the last time the Choir will sing before Rev Chris leaves on his sabbatical.  So we thought an appropriate send-off would be to let him know how much his dedication, diligence, and sharing of his talents have blessed us.

    This is an a cappella piece, meaning the choir sings without piano accompaniment.  However, there may be a djembe, an ancient drum played with bare hands, joining in.  It's name means "Everyone gather together in peace."

    We are met together and in
    Meeting we are blessed.
    Peace in coming and in going,
    Peace in labor and in rest.
     
    Hold on, dear brother!
    Hold on, dear sister!
    Hold on, hold to me.
     
    We are met together and in
    Meeting we are blessed.
    Peace in coming and in going,
    Peace in labor and in rest.
     
    You're not alone and you never more will be.
    I will be with you and I will carry you with me.
    Friendship endures and surely will prove
    It's not ourselves, but our bodies that move.
     
    We are met together and in
    Meeting we are blessed.
    Peace in coming and in going,
    Peace in labor and in rest.
     
    Hold on, dear brother!
    Hold on, dear sister!
    Hold on, hold to me.
