For Every Blade Of Bright Green Grass (Green Grass – 5 Verses) – Piano Ensemble

For Every Blade Of Bright Green Grass ~ Lyrics

For every blade of bright green grass,
For every petal of each flower,
For every leaf on every tree,
We thank you Lord God, Almighty.

For each raindrop, each wet shower,
That falls on dusty, parchèd earth,
And nourishes the fertile loam,
And sprouts up shoots with growing power.

For every seed of every plant,
That multiplies its sacred kind,
For sweetest fruit of yielding tree,
We thank you Lord God, Almighty.

For every species of each herb,
That seasons up our fractured whole,
And soothes and calms like Gilead’s balm,
And heals the mind, body and soul.

For Nature’s generosity
Sustaining all createdkind,
Your gift of Omni love divine,
We thank you Lord God, Almighty.

Let Us With A Gladsome Mind (Monkland – 7 verses) – Organ

Let Us With A Gladsome Mind ~ Lyrics

1. Let us, with a gladsome mind,
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

2. Let us blaze His Name abroad,
For of gods He is the God:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

3. He with all-commanding might
Filled the new-made world with light:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

4. All things living He doth feed;
His full hand supplies their need:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

5. He His chosen race did bless
In the wasteful wilderness:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

6. He hath with a pious eye
Looks upon our misery:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

7. Let us therefore warble forth
His high majesty and worth:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Psalm 136

Let Us With A Gladsome Mind was written by John Milton in 1623 when the poet was just 15 years old and a pupil at St. Paul’s School, London. It is a paraphrase of Psalm 136.

1. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.

O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.

To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.

To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.

To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:

The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:

The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.

10 To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever:

11 And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever:

12 With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.

13 To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever:

14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:

15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.

16 To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever.

17 To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

18 And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

19 Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:

20 And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:

21 And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever:

22 Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever.

23 Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:

24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.

25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.

26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.

God Who Made The Earth ~ Lyrics

1 God who made the earth,
the air, the sky, the sea,
who gave the light its birth,
careth for me.

the day and night to pass,
careth for me.

The moon, the stars, is he
who, when life’s clouds come on,
careth for me.

he if I lean on him,
will care for me.

Fair Waved The Golden Corn (Holyrood – 5 Verses) – Organ

Fair Waved The Golden Corn ~ Lyrics

1 Fair waved the golden corn
In Canaan’s pleasant land,
When, full of joy, some shining morn,
Went forth the reaper-band.

2 To God so good and great
Their cheerful thanks they pour;
Then carry to his temple-gate
The choicest of their store.

3 Like Israel, Lord, we give
Our earliest fruits to thee,
And pray that, long as we shall live,
We may thy children be.

4 Thine is our youthful prime,
And life and all its pow’rs;
Be with us in our morning time,
And bless our evening hours.

5 In wisdom let us grow,
As years and strength are giv’n,
That we may serve thy Church below,
And join thy saints in heav’n.

A Love Song Soothes My Soul So (Suzi) – Small Band

The Gardener’s Hymn
Dedicated to my sister Suzi Irwin, a dedicated garden designer, gardener and artist.

Lyrics ~ 3 verses

Meter: 76 78 55 68 8

A love song soothes my soul so:
When spring flow’rs start to grow,
And bees court, like striped bridegrooms,
A fragrant lilac, rose perfumed;
This love song, so bright,
Wings my soul to heaven
I hear the voice of God’s creation,
And work His holy garden.

His beauty seen in petals,
His Spirit, with birds nestles,
Hymns sung by nature’s choirboys,
He gifts us both with grace and joy!
This love song, so bright,
Wings my soul to heaven,
I hear the voice of God’s creation,
And work His holy garden.

A gift then is a garden,
Even as the winter hardens,
The cycle of life and death
Reflects that we shall resurrect!
This love song, so bright,
Wings my soul to heaven,
I hear the voice of God’s creation,
And work His holy garden.

Description

When spring comes around I am always amazed by the emergence of new life in the garden. Spring in particular is a time when the beauty of the Earth is at its best. Not only do the flowering bulbs, like daffodils and tulips appear to delight us, but each tree becomes leafed in a different green.  Bees court flowers to make honey and the songbirds become nature’s choristers.  I find the garden so inspiring and a reflection of life in general with its cycle of birth, harvest, death and rebirth. Hence, “A Love Song Soothes My Soul” is a reflection of the wonder of God’s creation.

I dedicated the hymn to my sister, Suzi (see suzi-irwin.co.uk) who changed career to become a garden designer, and so the song has become known as The Gardener’s Hymn. I hope it inspires gardeners everywhere.

O Breath Of Life (Spiritus Vitae – 4 Verses) – Organ

O Breath Of Life  ~ Lyrics

O Breath of life, come sweeping through us,
revive your church with life and pow’r;
O Breath of Life, come, cleanse, renew us,
and fit your church to meet this hour.

O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
till humbly we confess our need;
then in your tenderness remake us,
revive, restore, for this we plead.

O Breath of love, come breathe within us,
renewing thought and will and heart;
come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,
revive your church in ev’ry part.

Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating
while harvest fields are vast and white?
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting,
equip your church to spread the light.

For The Beauty Of The Earth ~ Lyrics

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
Pleasures pure and undefiled,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For each perfect gift of thine,
To our race so freely given,
Graces human and divine,
Flowers of earth and buds of heaven,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
