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.

Before The Cross Of Calvary (I Have A House And Land In Kent, 6 Verses, Acoustic)

Before The Cross Of Calvary : Lyrics

A hymn for Maundy Thursday.

1. Before the cross of Calvary,
Jesus went to Gethsemane
For prayer, solitude and rest;
When His agony took the test,
Jesus prayed in Gethsemane.
Three times, He prayed for you and me.

2. From joyous supper with His friends,
He descended to dreadful ends
Stirred inside the brimming Cup:
God’s wrath upon humanity.
‘Come keep watch, and pray with me’,
He uttered in Gethsemane.

3. Distressed, depressed and squeezed and pressed
Cup’s contents crushed all human sense,
He fell grounded fac-down, anguished:
‘Abba! save me from this hour!’
‘Come keep watch, and pray with me.’
He uttered to the inner three!

4. Sore and overwhelmed with sorrow,
Temptation shot a straight arrow
To shun the cup of destiny;
Jesus submitted to God’s will!
‘Come keep watch, and pray with me.’
He uttered to the inner three!

5. Deeper and deeper prayer with tears,
Jesus cried in His Father’s ears!
The Abba heard, and ministered;
Charged boldness cried, ‘Thy will be done!’
Three times, he prayed for you and me
In the garden of Gethsemane!

6. No empathy from His best friends,
Alone, He paid the penalty,
Down to the dregs, for you and me;
Jesus switched the Cup of Calvary
For Salvation’s Cup, full and free,
Blessings, thanksgiving, victory!

Thy Will Be Done, The Saviour Said (Organ, 4 Verses)

Thy Will Be Done, The Saviour Said : Lyrics

Thy will be done, the Saviour said,
and bowed to earth his sacred head,
the sands of life had nearly run,
my Father, let thy will be done,
thy will, not mine, be done.

No watch his spent disciples kept,
amid the shadows deep they slept;
but silent angels waiting there,
beheld his agony of prayer –
thy will, not mine, be done.

His soul foresaw the cruel scorns,
the brutal scourge, the crown of thorns,
and, darker than Gethsemane,
the shadows of th’ accursed tree –
thy will, not mine, be done.

What though he felt in that dread hour,
the storms of human passions low’r;
nor pain, nor death, his soul would shun,
my Father, let thy will be done,
thy will, not mine, be done.

Now My Tongue, The Mystery Telling (Grafton, Organ, 6 verses)

Now My Tongue, The Mystery Telling Lyrics

This recording of Now My Tongue, The Mystery Telling has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

Now, my tongue, the mystery telling
Of the glorious body sing,
And the blood, all price excelling,
Which the Gentiles’ Lord and King,
In a Virgin’s womb once dwelling,
Shed for this world’s ransoming.

Given for us, and condescending
To be born for us below,
He, with us in converse blending,
Dwelt the seed of truth to sow,
‘Til he closed with wondrous ending
His most patient life of woe.

That last night, at supper lying,
‘Mid the Twelve, his chosen band,
Jesus, with the law complying,
Keeps the feast its rites demand;
Then, more precious food supplying,
Gives himself with his own hand.

Word-made-flesh, true bread he maketh
By his word his flesh to be,
Wine his blood; which whoso taketh
Must from carnal thoughts be free:
Faith alone, though sight forsaketh,
Shows true hearts the mystery.

Therefore we, before him bending,
This great sacrament revere:
Types and shadows have their ending,
For the newer rite is here;
Faith, our outward sense befriending,
Makes our inward vision clear.

Glory let us give and blessing
To the Father and the Son,
Honour, might, and praise addressing,
While eternal ages run;
Ever too his love confessing,
Who, from both, with both is One.

O Bread To Pilgrims Given (Passion Chorale, Organ, 3 Verses)

O Bread To Pilgrims Given : Lyrics

O Bread to pilgrims given,
O food that angels eat,
O manna sent from heaven,
For heav’n-born natures meet:
Give us, for thee long pining,
To eat till richly filled;
Till, earth’s delights resigning,
Our every wish is stilled.

O water, life-bestowing,
Forth from the Saviour’s heart
A fountain purely flowing,
A fount of love thou art:
O let us, freely tasting,
Our burning thirst assuage;
Thy sweetness, never wasting,
Avails from age to age.

Jesus, this feast receiving,
We thee unseen adore;
Thy faithful word believing,
We take, and doubt no more:
Give us, thou true and loving,
On earth to live in thee;
Then, death the veil removing,
Thy glorious face to see.

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.

Praise To The Holiest In The Height (Gerontius – 6 Verses) – Organ

Praise To The Holiest ~ Lyrics

1. Praise to the Holiest in the height,
And in the depth be praise:
In all His words most wonderful;
Most sure in all His ways.

2. O loving wisdom of our God,
When all was sin and shame,
He, the last Adam, to the fight
And to the rescue came.

3. O wisest love! that flesh and blood
Which did in Adam fail,
Should strive afresh against the foe,
Should strive and should prevail.

4. And that a higher gift than grace
Should flesh and blood refine,
God’s presence, and His very self
And essence all-divine.

5. And in the garden secretly,
And on the cross on high,
Should teach His brethren, and inspire
To suffer and to die.

6. Praise to the Holiest in the height,
And in the depth be praise:
In all His words most wonderful;
Most sure in all His ways.

All My Hope On God Is Founded (Michael, Organ, 4 Verses)

All My Hope On God Is Founded : Lyrics

All my hope on God is founded;
He doth still my trust renew,
Me through change and chance He guideth,
Only good and only true.
God unknown, He alone
Calls my heart to be His own.

Human pride and earthly glory,
Sword and crown betray His trust;
What with care and toil He buildeth,
Tower and temple fall to dust.
But God’s power, hour by hour,
Is my temple and my tower.

God’s great goodness aye endureth,
Deep His wisdom, passing thought:
Splendour, light and life attend him,
Beauty springeth out of naught.
Evermore, from His store,
Newborn worlds rise and adore.

Still from man to God eternal
Sacrifice of praise be done,
High above all praises praising
For the gift of Christ, His Son.
Christ doth call one and all:
Ye who follow shall not fall.
