Santo, Santo, Santo

Santo, Santo, Santo is an Argentine folk song that has become popular in American churches and is included in many different hymnals. It is in the The Faith We Sing (#2007), a supplement to the 1989 United Methodist Hymnal. Here's an audio recording of Santo, Santo, Santo from Hymnary.org

The lyrics are:

Santo, santo, santo. 
Mi corazon te adora! 
Mi corazon te sabe decir: 
Santo eres, Dios! 

Holy, holy, holy.
My heart, my heart adores you!
My heart knows how to say to you:
You are holy, Lord!

Night Has Fallen

“Night Has Fallen” is a call-and-response piece: the cantor sings a line which the people echo, and then everyone sings a refrain together. The tune, “Dzuwa Lapita”, is from Malawi, and was arranged and harmonized for publication in the UK/US by John Bell. The words in English are by Tom Colvin, but also you can make up your own calls and responses.

 This song is available in the Iona Community's There Is One Among Us: Shorter Songs for Worship from Wild Goose Publications.

Here's more information about this song from Hymnary.org

Here is a video of AnnaMarie Hoos leading 'Night has Fallen' at an MMC event at Bishop's Ranch in January 2016.
