Spirit Of God (Skye Boat Song, Small Orchestra, 3 Verses)

Spirit Of God Lyrics

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.
Refrain

Immortal Invisible God Only Wise (Saint Denio, Organ, 4 Verses)

Immortal Invisible God Only Wise : Lyrics

1. Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
in light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
almighty, victorious, thy great name we praise.

2. Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might;
thy justice like mountains high soaring above
thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.

3. To all, life thou givest, to both great and small;
in all life thou livest, the true life of all;
we blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
and wither and perish, but naught changeth thee.

4. Thou reignest in glory; thou dwellest in light;
thine angels adore thee, all veiling their sight;
all laud we would render: O help us to see
’tis only the splendor of light hideth thee.

Notes on Immortal Invisible God Only Wise

The text used by Walter Chalmers Smith (1824 – 1908) is based on “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever.” from this text on 1 Timothy 1: 17 and first published with six verses in his Hymns of Christ and the Christian Life (1867).

Take Up Thy Cross, The Saviour Said (Breslau, Organ, 6 Verses)

Take Up Thy Cross, The Saviour Said Lyrics

Also known as Take Up Your Cross. Suitable for: Lent, Passiontide, Good Friday

1. Take up thy cross, the Saviour said,
If thou wouldst My disciple be;
Deny thyself, the world forsake,
And humbly follow after Me.

2. Take up thy cross, let not its weight
Fill thy weak spirit with alarm;
His strength shall bear thy spirit up,
And brace thy heart and nerve thine arm.

3. Take up thy cross, nor heed the shame,
Nor let thy foolish pride rebel;
Thy Lord for thee the cross endured,
And saved thy soul from death and hell.

4. Take up thy cross then in His strength,
And calmly sin’s wild deluge brave,
’Twill guide thee to a better home,
It points to glory o’er the grave.

5. Take up thy cross and follow Christ,
Nor think til death to lay it down;
For only those who bear the cross
May hope to wear the glorious crown.

6. To Thee, great Lord, the One in Three,
All praise forevermore ascend:
O grant us in our home to see
The heavenly life that knows no end.
