Praise to the Lord, the Almighty (Lobe Den Herren)

Hymn – Praise to the Lord, the Almighty – Lyrics

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
Praise Him in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord, who over all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shieldeth thee gently from harm, or when fainting sustaineth:
Hast thou not seen how thy heart’s wishes have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
If to the end He befriend thee.

Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him.
Let the Amen sound from His people again,
Gladly for aye we adore Him.

Rise and shine

Hymn – Rise and shine – Lyrics

Rise and shine and give God His glory, glory.
Rise and shine and give God His glory, glory.
Rise and shine and give God His glory, glory.
Children of the Lord

1. The Lord said to Noah: ‘There’s gonna be a floody, floody,
Lord said to Noah: ‘There’s gonna be a floody, floody,
Get those children out of the muddy, muddy, children of the Lord.’
So Noah, he built Him, he built Him an arky, arky,
Noah, he built Him, he built Him an arky, arky,
Built it out of hickory barky, barky, children of the Lord. Refrain

2. The animals, they came on, they came on, by twosies, twosies,
Animals, they came on, they came on, by twosies, twosies,
Elephants and kangaroosies, roosies, children of the Lord.
It rained and poured for forty daysies, daysies,
Rained and poured for forty daysies, daysies
Nearly drove those animals crazies, crazies, children of the Lord. Refrain

3. The sun came out and dried up the landy landy,
Sun came out and dried up the landy landy,
Ev’rything was fine and dandy, dandy, children of the Lord.
If you get to heaven before I do-sies, do-sies,
You get to heaven before I do-sies, do-sies,
Tell those angels I’m comin’ too-sies, too-sies, children of the Lord. Refrain

Spirit of God (Skye Boat Song)

Hymn – Spirit of God – Lyrics

Refrain
Spirit of God, unseen as the wind,
Gentle as is the dove;
Touch us with love and teach us to sing
Joy to you Lord above.

Your voice the sound, heard in the wind,
O’er fields and hills you sing;
Now I can hear the joy, my Lord,
the peace your song will bring.

Refrain

Love in our hearts, praise in our prayers,
We follow on your way;
Lord of the sky, Lord of the Earth,
Answer us when we pray.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus (Morning Light)

Hymn – Stand up, stand up for Jesus – Lyrics

Stand up! Stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the cross!
Lift high his royal banner,
It must not suffer loss.
From vict’ry unto vict’ry his army he shall lead,
’til every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.

Stand up! Stand up for Jesus,
The solemn watchword hear;
If while ye sleep he suffers,
Away with shame and fear.
Where’er ye meet with evil,
Within you or without,
Charge for the God of battles,
And put the foe to rout.

Stand up! Stand up for Jesus,
The trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict
In this most glorious day.
Ye that are men now serve him
Against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger
And strength to strength oppose.

Stand up! Stand up for Jesus !
Stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armour,
Each piece put on with prayer;
Where duty calls, or danger
Be never wanting there.

Stand up! Stand up for Jesus !
The strife will not be long:
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor’s song.
To him that overcometh
A crown of life shall be;
He with the King of Glory
Shall reign eternally.
