Hail Thou Once Despisèd Jesus (Lux Eoi, Organ, 4 Verses)

Hail Thou Once Despisèd Jesus : Lyrics

1. Hail, thou once despised Jesus!
Hail, thou Galilean King!
Thou didst suffer to release us,
Thou didst free salvation bring.
Hail, thou agonizing Saviour,
Bearer of our sin and shame!
By thy merits we find favour,
Life is given thro’ thy name.

2. Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins were on thee laid;
By almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
All thy people are forgiven,
Through the virtue of thy blood;
Opened is the gate of heaven,
Peace is made ‘twixt man and God.

3. Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory,
There forever to abide;
All the heav’nly hosts adore thee,
Seated at thy Father’s side.
There for sinners thou art pleading,
There thou dost our place prepare;
Ever for us interceding,
‘Til in glory we appear.

4 Worship, honour, pow’r, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive;
Loudest praises, without ceasing,
Meet it is for us to give.
Help, ye bright angelic spirits,
Bring your sweetest, noblest lays;
Help to sing our Saviour’s merits,
Help to chant Immanuel’s praise.

Come Ye Faithful Raise The Strain (Ave Virgo Virginum, Organ, 4 Verses)

Come Ye Faithful Raise The Strain : Lyrics

1. Come, ye faithful, raise the strain
of triumphant gladness!
God hath brought his Israel
into joy from sadness;
loosed from Pharaoh’s bitter yoke
Jacob’s sons and daughters;
led them with unmoistened foot
through the Red Sea waters.

2. ‘Tis the spring of souls to-day;
Christ hath burst his prison,
and from three days’ sleep in death
as a sun hath risen:
all the winter of our sins,
long and dark, is flying
from his light, to whom we give
laud and praise undying.

3. Now the queen of seasons, bright
with the day of splendour,
with the royal feast of feasts,
comes its joy to render;
comes to glad Jerusalem,
who with true affection
welcomes in unwearied strains
Jesu’s resurrection.

4. Alleluia now we cry
to our King immortal,
who triumphant burst the bars
of the tomb’s dark portal;
Alleluia, with the Son
God the Father praising;
Alleluia yet again
to the Spirit raising.

This Is The Day The Lord Has Made (Billing, Organ, 5 Verses)

This Is The Day The Lord Has Made : Lyrics

1. This is the day the Lord has made;
He calls the hours His own;
Let heav’n rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.

2. Today he rose and left the dead,
And Satan’s empire fell;
Today the saints His triumphs spread,
And all His wonders tell.

3. Hosanna to th’anointed King,
To David’s holy Son.
Help us, O LORD, descend and bring
Salvation from Your throne.

4. Blest be the Lord, who comes to us
With messages of grace;
Who comes, in God His Father’s name,
To save our sinful race.

5. Hosanna in the highest strains
The Church on Earth can raise;
The highest leav’ns in which He reigns
Shall give him nobler praise.

A Love Song Soothes My Soul So (Suzi, Piano Ensemble, 3 Verses)

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

A Love Song Soothes My Soul So : Lyrics

Meter: 76 78 55 68 8

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

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

3.A gift then is a garden,
Ev’n-as winter hardens,
The cycle of life and death
Reflects that we shall resurrect!
This love song so bright
It 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.

Christ The Lord Is Risen Today (Easter Hymn, Organ, 6 Verses)

Christ The Lord Is Risen Today : Lyrics

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where’s thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

Hail the Lord of earth and heaven, Alleluia!
Praise to thee by both be given, Alleluia!
Thee we greet triumphant now, Alleluia!
Hail the Resurrection, thou, Alleluia!

King of glory, soul of bliss, Alleluia!
Everlasting life is this, Alleluia!
Thee to know, thy power to prove, Alleluia!
Thus to sing, and thus to love, Alleluia!

The Lord Is Risen Indeed (Narenza – 5 verses) – Organ

Lyrics – 5 verses

Suggested uses: Easter Sunday

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
And are the tidings true?
Yes, we beheld the Saviour bleed,
And saw Him living too.

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
Then justice asks no more;
Mercy and Truth are now agreed,
Who stood opposed before.

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
Then is the work performed;
The captive surely now is freed,
And death, our foe, disarmed.

The Lord is ris’n indeed,
Attending angels hear;
Up to the courts of heav’n, with speed,
The joyful tidings bear.

Then take your golden lyres,
And strike each cheerful chord;
Join all the bright celestial choirs
To sing our risen Lord.
