Music in the Atruim

A painting of the Good Shepherd from the Roman catacombs.
In the atrium we have a few songs that we sing often. Some of them are songs that we sing together at circle, some are songs that relate to a particular work. Here are the lyrics to a few of them. Many of them also include hand motions. Perhaps your child will show you.

Our Circle Song:

I see the love of God in you.
The light of Christ come shining through.
And I am blessed to be with you.
O, holy child of God.

The Liturgical Color Song:

Purple and green and red and white
Are the colors of the year.
Purple and green and red and white
Remind us of the Light.
Purple's for preparation, white is for celebration
Green is for a growing time,
Red is for Pentecost
Purple and green and red and white
Are the colors of the year.
Purple and green and red and white
Remind us of the light.

Holy Ground (when we talk about the Land of Israel and the three cities of Nazareth, Jerusalem and Bethlehem):

This is holy ground.
God's given us holy ground.
God is in this place
And so this ground is holy. (2x)
