Jesus Joy Of Our Desiring (Werde Munter, Organ, 5 Verses)

Jesus Joy Of Our Desiring Lyrics

1. Jesus joy of our desiring,
Holy wisdom, love most bright;
Drawn by thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light.
Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
With the fire of life impassioned,
Striving still to truth unknown,
Soaring, dying round thy throne.

2 Through the way where hope is guiding,
Hark, what peaceful music rings;
Where the flock, in thee confiding,
Drink of joy from deathless springs.
Theirs is beauty’s fairest pleasure;
Theirs is wisdom’s holiest treasure.
Thou dost ever lead thine own
In the love of joys unknown.

Forward Through The Ages (Saint Gertrude, Organ, 3 Verses)

Forward Through The Ages Lyrics

1. Forward through the ages,
In unbroken line,
Move the faithful spirits
At the call divine.
Gifts in diff’ring measure,
Hearts of one accord,
Manifold the service,
One the sure reward;

Refrain:
Forward through the ages, 
In unbroken line,
Move the faithful spirits 
At the call divine.

2. Wider grows the kingdom,
Reign of love and light;
For it we must labour,
Till our faith is sight.
Prophets have proclaimed it,
Martyrs testified,
Poets sung its glory,
Heroes for it died. Refrain

3. Not alone we conquer,
Not alone we fall;
In each loss or triumph
Lose or triumph all.
Bound by God’s far purpose
In one living whole,
Move we on together
To the shining goal! Refrain

O Spirit Of The Living God (Winchester New, Organ, 5 verses)

O Spirit Of The Living God Lyrics

1 O Spirit of the living God,
in all the fullness of your grace,
wherever human feet have trod,
descend upon our fallen race.

2 Give tongues of fire and hearts of love
to preach the reconciling word;
anoint with power from heaven above
whenever gospel truth is heard.

3 Let darkness turn to radiant light,
confusion vanish from your path;
those who are weak inspire with might:
let mercy triumph over wrath!

4 O Spirit of our God, prepare
the whole wide world the Lord to meet;
breathe out new life, like morning air,
till hearts of stone begin to beat.

5 Baptize the nations; far and near
the triumphs of the cross record;
till Christ in glory shall appear
and every race declare him Lord!

Around The Throne Of God (Solothurn, Organ, 4 Verses)

Around The Throne Of God Lyrics

1 Around the throne of God a band
of glorious angels ever stand;
bright things they see, sweet harps they hold,
and on their heads are crowns of gold.

2 Some wait around him, ready still
to sing his praise and do his will;
and some, when he commands them, go
to guard his servants here below.

3 Lord, give thy angels every day
command to guide us on our way,
and bid them every evening keep
their watch around us while we sleep.

4 So shall no wicked thing draw near,
to do us harm or cause us fear;
and we shall dwell, when life is past,
with angels round thy throne at last.

Meter LM. Lyrics by John Mason Neale (1818 – 1866). Public Domain.

With Joy We Meditate The Grace (Tallis’ Ordinal, Organ, 5 Verses)

With Joy We Meditate The Grace Lyrics

This recording has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

1. With joy we meditate the grace
Of our High Priest above;
His heart is made of tenderness,
And ever yearns with love.

2. Touched with a sympathy within,
He knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations mean
For he has felt the same.

3. He in the days of feeble flesh
Poured out his cries and tears;
And, in his measure, feels afresh
What every member bears.

4. He’ll never quench the smoking flax,
But raise it to a flame;
The bruisèd reed he never breaks,
Nor scorns the meanest name.

5. Then let our humble faith address
His mercy and his power:
We shall obtain delivering grace
In every needful hour.

O Holy Ghost Thy Peoples Bless (St Timothy – 6 Verses) – Organ

O Holy Ghost Thy Peoples Bless Lyrics

1. O Holy Ghost, thy people bless
Who long to feel thy might,
And fain would grow in holiness
As children of the light.

2. To thee we bring, who art the Lord,
Ourselves to be thy throne;
Let ev’ry thought and deed and word
Thy pure dominion own.

3. Life-giving Spirit, o’er us move,
As on the formless deep;
Give life and order, light and love,
where now is death or sleep.

4. Great gift of our ascended King,
His saving truth reveal;
Our tongues inspire His praise to sing,
Our hearts his love to feel.

5. True wind of heav’n, from south or north,
For joy or chast’ning, blow;
The garden-spices shall spring forth
If thou wilt bid them flow.

6. O Holy Ghost, of sev’nfold might,
All graces come from thee;
Grant us to know and serve aright
One God in Persons Three.

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.

Hark The Glad Sound! (Bristol – 4 Verses) – Organ

Hark The Glad Sound! Lyrics

Hark, the glad sound! The Saviour comes,
The Saviour promised long!
Let ev’ry heart prepare a throne,
And ev’ry voice a song.

He comes the pris’ners to release,
In Satan’s bondage held;
The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.

He comes the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure,
And with the treasures of His grace
T’enrich the humbled poor.

Our glad Hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
And heav’n’s eternal arches ring
With Thy beloved Name.

In Candle Glow Most Sacred (Nimrod -2 Verses) – SATB & Organ

In Candle Glow Most Sacred Lyrics

In candle glow most sacred the Spirit rises,
Hovers, blesses one and all who gather here to pray.
Here to pray to God almighty,
Creator, splendid Mother of all,
Who gave birth to moon and sun.
Whose Spirit breathes living breath
To all who trust in Thee.
We who seek for Thee
Find comfort in the soul.

With divine light so holy,
Rises the great Holy Spirit,
Companion at times of peril,
Comforter and dearest friend.
Consoler of hearts,
Lover of our souls,
Creator, Saviour.
We sing to You our joy!
Amen.

History

Edward Elgar completed his Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, known more commonly as the Enigma Variations, in February 1899. There were fourteen in all, based on an original theme dedicated by Elgar “to my friends pictured within”.

Using the term “Enigma” Elgar has caused much speculation as to whether there is a hidden melody within the piece.

The 9th variation “Nimrod” is used here in this anthem and refers to Augustus J. Jaeger, a music editor and close friend of Elgar’s, known for giving the composer critical advice and help with his compositions. Nimrod is described in the Old Testament as “a mighty hunter before the Lord”, Jäger is the German for hunter.

Nimrod has become popular in its own right, often played at British funerals, memorial services, and other solemn occasions, including the National Service of Remembrance.
