Lead Us, Heavenly Father, Lead Us (Mannheim) – Organ

Lyrics – 3 verses

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
O’er this world’s tempestuous sea
Guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us
For we have no help but thee;
Yet possessing every blessing
If our God our Father be

Saviour, breath forgiveness o’er us:
All our weaknesses thou dost know;
Though didst tread this earth before us,
Thou did feel its keenest woe;
Lone and dreary, faint and weary,
Through the desert thou didst go.

Spirit of our God, descending,
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy,
Love with every passion blending,
Pleasure that can never cloy:
Thus provided, pardoned, guided,
Ever can our peace destroy.

Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days (Saint Flavian – 5 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Lord, who throughout these forty days,
For us did fast and pray,
Teach us with you to mourn our sins,
And close by you to stay.

As you with Satan did contend,
And did the vict’ry win,
O give us strength in you to fight,
In you to conquer sin.

As you did hunger bear and thirst,
So teach us, gracious Lord,
To die to self, and always live
By your most holy word.

And through these days of penitence,
And through your Passiontide,
Forevermore, in life and death,
O Lord, with us abide.

Abide with us that when this life
Of suffering is past,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last!

We Hail Thy Presence Glorious (Offertorium) – Organ

Lyrics – 5 verses

We hail thy Presence glorious,
O Christ our great high Priest,
O’er sin and death victorious,
At thy thanksgiving feast:
As thou art interceding
For us in heaven above,
Thy Church on earth is pleading
Thy perfect work of love.

Through thee in every nation
Thine own their hearts upraise,
Offering one pure Oblation,
One Sacrifice of praise:
With thee in blest communion
The living and the dead
Are joined in closest union,
One Body with one Head.

O living Bread from heaven,
Jesu, our Saviour good,
Who thine own self hast given
To be our souls’ true food;
For us thy body broken
Hung on the Cross of shame:
This Bread its hallowed token
We break in thy dear name.

O stream of love unending,
Poured from the one true Vine,
With our weak nature blending
The strength of life divine;
Our thankful faith confessing
In thy life-blood outpoured,
We drink this Cup of blessing
And praise thy name, O Lord.

May we thy word believing
Thee through thy gifts receive,
That, thou within us living,
We all to God may live;
Draw us from earth to heaven
Till sin and sorrow cease,
Forgiving and forgiven,
In love and joy and peace.

Christ is the light of all the world (Wiltshire) – Organ

Lyrics

Christ is the light of all the world,
Yet with the darkest night;
Lit by His glory and His love,
He turns the dark to light.

Christ came into a world of sin,
To cast the dark away;
He came to bring mankind the light,
And give the brightest day.

He is the light with which we shine,
When we call Him our friend;
He is our Saviour and our Lord,
We’ll serve Him to the end.

We’ll shine for Him in this dark world,
We’ll be a lamp of grace;
We’ll boldly go into the dark
‘Til we stand face to face.

Lord Jesus In Your Mercy (Cara) – Organ

Lyrics

Lord Jesus in Your mercy,
Through each and ev’ry day,
I’ll always praise and serve You,
Please hear me when I pray.

I’ll talk with You each morning,
And speak with You each night,
When You call me I’ll ans-wer,
Help me to win the fight.

All that You ask me Saviour,
Help me through ev’ry day;
And most of all, my plea is
‘Hear me when I pray.’

O, hear me Lord, and answer
According to Your word;
Then may the Spirit prompt me,
When Your still voice I’ve heard.

Lord, Teach Us How To Pray Aright (Saint Hugh) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Lord, teach us how to pray aright
With reverence and with fear;
Though dust and ashes in thy sight,
We may, we must, draw near.

2. We perish if we cease from prayer:
O grant us power to pray;
And, when to meet thee we prepare,
Lord, meet us by the way.

3. God of all grace, we bring to thee
A broken, contrite heart;
Give what thine eye delights to see,
Truth in the inward part;

4. Faith in the only sacrifice
That can for sin atone,
To cast our hopes, to fix our eyes,
On Christ, on Christ alone;

5. Patience to watch and wait and weep,
Though mercy long delay;
Courage our fainting souls to keep,
And trust thee though thou slay.

6. Give these, and then thy will be done;
Thus, strengthened with all might,
We, through thy Spirit and thy Son,
Shall pray, and pray aright.

Blest Creator of the Light (Vienna) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Blest Creator of the light,
making day with radiance bright,
thou didst o’er the forming earth
give the golden light its birth.

2. Thou didst mark the night from day
with the dawn’s first piercing ray:
darkness now is drying nigh;
listen to our humble cry.

3. May we ne’er by guilt depressed
lose the way to endless rest;
nor with idle thoughts and vain
bind our souls to earth again.

4. Rather may we heav’nward rise
where eternal treasure lies;
purified by grace within,
hating ev’ry deed of sin.

5. Holy Father, hear our cry
through thy Son our Lord most high,
who our thankful hearts adore
with the Spirit evermore.
