I plan the liturgies for the school where I teach and need some advice on whether or not to use a particular song during Lent.
I know, of course, that the Alleluia before the Gospel is prohibited during Lent, but does prohibition extend to all songs containing any use of the word?
I would like to continue to use “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence” as the Eucharistic hymn, but the fourth verse is:
At His feet the six wingèd seraph,
Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the presence,
As with ceaseless voice they cry:
Alleluia, Lord Most High! "
Would it be permissible to use this?
