First Holy Communion Hymn - Today Is My Day

Post by Erica » Wed Jun 16, 2010 6:27 am

Hi Everyone, I am new to the site and hope that someone will be able to help me. I am looking for the correct lyrics and the sheet music (guitar chords will do) for a hymn that I sang at my First Holy Communion in the late 1970s and would like to be able to teach to our Year 4 students who are about to make their First Holy Communion.

I think the hymn was entitled - Today Is My Day

The lyrics are (as far as I can remember):
Today is my day
a very special day for me
for like little children all over the world
I'm coming to meet my Lord.

So come together and sing and pray.
This is my first Communion day.

Looking forward to hearing from someone soon!

First Holy Communion Hymn

Post by Guest » Fri Sep 08, 2017 8:58 am

Hello, if anyone is still looking, I'm putting slides together for our First Communion Masses this weekend. No idea who this is by but the song I believe is called Today.

Today is my day
A very special day for me
For like little children
all over the world
I'm going to meet Our Lord.
So join together and sing and pray
This is my First Communion Day.

Today is my day
I've waited so long
And at last it's come
For like all the people
of Bible times
I'm going to meet Our Lord
So join together and sing and pray
This is my First Communion Day.

Today is my day
For Jesus is coming into my heart
Please bless all the people
Who helped me prepare
To meet you Christ my Lord
So join together and sing and pray
This is my First Communion Day.

Hello,

I also loved this song/hymn and it was sang by us as we made our First Holy Communion in Australia.
Just re the second paragraph, we sang the fourth line as: "For like little children... Of Bible times."
I recall it was lovely to think of other children also meeting Jesus.

Today is my day
I've waited so long
And at last it's come
For like little children
of Bible times
I'm going to meet Our Lord
So join together and sing and pray
This is my First Communion Day.

Would be great to hear if anyone else knows the origin of this song!

Today is my day was one of my First Communion hymns, in 1975 (I attended St. Monicas' Primary School, in Bendigo, Victoria - Australia). Loved the song, I loved the day. Beautiful memories.
