THIS IS THE DAY – JOHN RUTTER

This is the day, the day which the Lord has made
We will rejoice and be glad in it
This is the day, the day which the Lord has made
We will rejoice and be glad in it This is the day

O praise the Lord of Heaven Praise him in the highest,
Praise him all ye angels of his, Praise him all ye souls
Praise him sun and moon, Praise him all ye stars of light
Let them praise the name of the Lord For

O He shall give his angels charge over thee
To keep thee in all thy ways
To keep thee in all thy ways
To keep thee in all thy ways

The Lord himself is my keeper
The Lord is my defense upon my right hand
So that the sun shall not hurt thee by day
Neither the moon by night

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil
Yeah, it is even he that shall keep thy soul
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in

From this I know, From this I know
From this I know forever more
He shall defend thee, He shall defend thee, He shall defend thee under his wings
He shall defend thee, He shall defend thee, He shall defend thee under his wings

Be strong, And He shall comfort thine heart
Shall comfort thine heart And who shall I trust?
I trust in the Lord……………
Whose power I trust in, the Lord, In the Lord
