Jesus came down from above (St Bees – 4 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Jesus came down from above,
Telling us of God’s great love;
He’s our brother, Lord and friend,
And on him we can depend.

He has paid the ransom cost,
To redeem the poor and lost;
Lame men walk and blind men see,
When He calls them, “Follow Me.”

When His promises we claim,
He will set our hearts aflame;
He will grant us when we serve,
Blessings more than we deserve.

His the glory, His the praise,
Songs of royal worship raise;
To His feet your tributes bring,
Praise and glorify the King!

Take my life and let it be (St Bees) – Organ

Hymn – Take my life and let it be – Lyrics

1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.

2. Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee;
Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.

3. Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.

4. Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

All for Jesus, great Redeemer (Beecher) – Organ

Lyrics

All for Jesus, great Redeemer,
I surrender heart and soul;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
He’s restored me, made me whole.
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
I am His throughout my days;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
I will live a life of praise.

All for Jesus, gracious Saviour,
Till I meet Him face to face;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Stand restored by divine grace.
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Voice and hands to Him I raise;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
I will sing eternal praise!

Now with joyful exultation (Beecher) – Organ

Lyrics

Based on Psalm 95

Now with joyful exultation
Let us sing to God our praise;
To the rock of our salvation
Loud hosannas let us raise.
Thankful tribute gladly bringing,
Let us come before him now,
And, with psalms his praises singing,
Joyful in his presence bow.

For how great a God, and glorious,
Is the Lord to whom we sing;
Over idol gods victorious,
Great is he, our God and King.
In his hand are earth’s deep places,
Also his are all the hills;
His the sea whose bounds he traces,
His the land his bounty fills.

To the Lord such might revealing,
Let us come with rev’rence meet,
And, before our maker kneeling,
Let us worship at his feet.
He is our own God who leads us,
We the people of his care;
With a shepherd’s hand he feeds us
As his flock in pastures fair.

While he offers peace and pardon
Let us hear his voice today,
Lest, if we our hearts should harden,
We should perish in the way;
Lest to us, so unbelieving,
He in judgment shall declare:
“You, so long my Spirit grieving,
never in my rest can share.”

A mighty wind around us (Cara) – Organ

The Spirit’s Fire – Lyrics

A mighty wind around us,
Is rushing through this place;
God’s Spirit full surrounds us,
Defeating time and space.

The Spirit’s fire consuming,
We burn with faith’s desire;
God’s mighty pow’r upon us,
We blaze with holy fire.

Christ calls on us to serve Him,
To witness to His love;
To love and serve our neighbour,
And praise our God above.

Let’s all proclaim His message,
And be His hands and feet;
When we serve Christ our Saviour,
Our lives are made complete.

O thou who camest from above (Hereford – 4 Verses) – Organ

Lyrics

O thou who camest from above
the fire celestial to impart,
kindle a flame of sacred love
on the mean altar of my heart!

There let it for thy glory burn
with inextinguishable blaze,
and trembling to its source return
in humble prayer and fervent praise.

Jesus, confirm my heart’s desire
to work, and speak, and think for thee;
still let me guard the holy fire,
and still stir up the gift in me.

Ready for all thy perfect will,
my acts of faith and love repeat;
till death thy endless mercies seal,
and make the sacrifice complete.

A Child is born to us (Denby – 3 verses) – Organ

Title: Wonderful, Counsellor!

Lyrics

A child is born to us,
The Son to us is giv’n.
The government of God
Will rest upon His frame.
He is the King of Kings,
New life and hope He brings;
His mighty government
Will never, never end.

We’ll name Him Wonderful,
We’ll call Him Counsellor;
We’ll claim His saving grace,
And we will call Him Friend.
Almighty God is He,
He comes to set us free;
His government of peace
Will never, never end.

He brings abundant life,
Frees us from earthly strife:
We’ll name Him King of Kings
And call Him Lord of Lords.
He is the Prince of Peace,
Through Him all conflicts cease;
He is the Son of God,
He is the Living Word.

A Carolling! A Carolling! (Ellacombe) – Organ

Lyrics

A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of the Saviour’s birth;
Of shepherds and of angels,
Of peace on all the Earth.
A carolling! A carolling!
The songs so full of joy.
Sing with the heav’nly choir above
That praised the infant boy.

A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of the guiding star;
Of shepherds and of wise men
Of how they journeyed far.
A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of that glorious day
When God came down to our world,
A baby in the hay.

A carolling! A carolling!
A story of God’s love:
The Christ child in the manger,
Who came from up above.
A carolling! A carolling!
Our song will never end,
Till every person, everywhere,
Knows Jesus Christ as friend.
