Go the Mass is Ended Children of the Lord

Go, the Mass is ended, Children of the Lord. Take his Word to others as you’ve heard it spoken to you. Go, the Mass is ended, Go and tell the world The Lord is good, the Lord is kind, And he loves ev’ryone. 2 Go, the Mass is ended, Take his love to all. Gladden all who meet you, Fill their hearts with hope and courage. Go, the Mass is ended, Fill the world with love, And give to all what you’ve received The peace and joy of Christ. 3 Go, the mass is ended, Strengthened in the Lord, Lighten ev’ry burden, Spread the joy of Christ around you. Go, the Mass is ended, Take God’s peace to all. This day is yours to change the world To make God known and loved.
This hymn was written by English teacher and religioius sister, Maria Lydia Pereia (b 1920).   It was first published in Hymns Old and New - A Hymnbook for the Irish Church in 1977.

It is one of a category of hymns which were written to teach people about parts of the liturgy. As such, it was useful when first written - but less so today, expect for use with children. However it is still included in the 2009 Catholic edition of Hymns Old and New, and this is the best source of sheet music.

The unnamed tune was written by Pereia, and has a 4/4 time signature. In they key of E the first few notes are E C E A cc.

It is not the same as confused with Sebastian Temple's song The Mass is Ended.
