Oh Lead Us By The Hand Lord (Crossing Over Jordan, Blue Grass, 2 Verses)

Oh Lead Us By The Hand Lord : Lyrics

Oh lead us by the hand, Lord,
And take us to the river;
O-ho, help us, dearest Saviour,
Across to the other side.
Oh, we will walk beside you,
We’ll follow in your footsteps,
O-ho, right down to the river,
Then cross to the other side.
Yes, we’ll cross over Jordan,
Into the promised land;
Yes, we’ll cross over Jordan,
When our Saviour holds our hand.

Oh, lead us, dearest Jesus,
Without a tear or sigh;
To that promised Land of Glory,
And the sweet bye and bye.
Oh, we’ll cross over Jordan,
So we can praise our Lord;
O-ho, raise our hands in worship,
Reap the promise of His Word.
We’ll cross over Jordan,
Into the promised land;
Yes, we’ll cross over Jordan,
When our Saviour holds our hand.

Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer (Cwm Rhondda – 3 Verses) – Organ

Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer : Lyrics

Also known as Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah, or Arglwydd, Awain Twy’r Aialwch in the original Welsh.

Guide me, O thou great redeemer,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty,
Hold me with thy powerful hand;
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven
Feed me till I want no more;
Feed me till I want no more.

Open now the crystal fountain
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
Strong deliverer, strong deliverer;
Be thou still my strength and shield;
Be thou still my strength and shield.

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death, and hell’s destruction
Land me safe on Canaan’s side:
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to thee;
I will ever give to thee.

Lectionary and Other Uses

The Welsh Original : Awain Twy’r Aialwch

Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer was originally a Welsh hymn, the first line translates as Lord, Leading Through The Desert

Arglwydd, arwain trwy’r anialwch,
Fi, bererin gwael ei wedd,
Nad oes ynof nerth na bywyd
Fel yn gorwedd yn y bedd:
Hollalluog, Hollalluog,
Ydyw’r Un a’m cwyd i’r lan.
Ydyw’r Un a’m cwyd i’r lan
Agor y ffynhonnau melus
‘N tarddu i maes o’r Graig y sydd;
Colofn dân rho’r nos i’m harwain,
A rho golofn niwl y dydd;
Rho i mi fanna, Rho i mi fanna,
Fel na bwyf yn llwfwrhau.
Fel na bwyf yn llwfwrhau.
Pan yn troedio glan Iorddonen,
Par i’m hofnau suddo i gyd;
Dwg fi drwy y tonnau geirwon
Draw i Ganaan — gartref clyd:
Mawl diderfyn. Mawl diderfyn
Fydd i’th enw byth am hyn.
Fydd i’th enw byth am hyn.

At The Name Of Jesus (Evelyns, Organ, 7 Verses)

At The Name Of Jesus : Lyrics

1. At the name of Jesus
Every knee shall bow,
Every tongue confess him
King of glory now:
‘Tis the Father’s pleasure
We should call him Lord,
Who from the beginning
Was the mighty Word.

2. At his voice creation
Sprang at once to sight,
All the angels faces
All the hosts of light,
Thrones and Dominations,
Stars upon their way,
All the heavenly orders,
In their great array.

3. Humbled for a season,
To receive a name
From the lips of sinners
Unto whom he came,
Faithfully he bore it
Spotless to the last,
Brought it back victorious,
When from death he passed:

4. Bore it up triumphant
With its human light,
Through all ranks of creatures,
To the central height,
To the throne of Godhead,
To the Father’s breast;
Filled it with the glory
Of that perfect rest.

5. Name him, brothers, name him,
With love as strong as death,
But with awe and wonder
And with bated breath:
He is God the Saviour,
He is Christ the Lord,
Ever to be worshipped,
Trusted, and adored.

6. In your hearts enthrone him;
There let him subdue
All that is not holy,
All that is not true:
Crown him as your captain
In temptation’s hour;
Let his will enfold you
In its light and power.

7. Brothers, this Lord Jesus
Shall return again,
With his Father’s glory,
With his angel train;
For all wreaths of empire
Meet upon his brow,
And our hearts confess him
King of glory now.

Be Thou My Vision (Slane, Organ, 5 Verses)

Be Thou My Vision Lyrics

The original words are attributed to Dallán Forgaill (c. 530 – 598). The English versions were versified by Eleanor Henrietta Hull (1860 – 1935) in 1912 based upon a translation by Mary Elizabeth Byrne (1880 – 1931) published in 1905.

Please note that there are two English versions of this hymn which have slightly different meters. Please ensure that the meter in your hymn book matches the meter of the recording or singing will be difficult.

Be Thou My Vision, Meter 10 11 11 12

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Be all else but naught to me, save that Thou art.
Be Thou my best thought in the day and the night;
Both waking and sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my wisdom, be Thou my true Word;
Be Thou ever with me, and I with Thee, Lord.
Be Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son;
Be Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight;
Be Thou my whole armour, be Thou my true might;
Be Thou my soul’s shelter, be Thou my strong tower;
O raise Thou me heavenward, great Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise;
Be Thou my inheritance now and always.
Be Thou and Thou only the first in my heart;
O Sovereign of Heaven, my treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, Thou Heaven’s bright Sun,
O grant me its joys after victory is won!
Great Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be Thou my vision, O Ruler of all.
