Refresh my weary soul (Eccles – 4 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Refresh my weary soul,
Renew this faith of mine,
That I may journey forth
Upon Your path divine.

Lord, let revival come,
To sweep me off my feet,
In holy power, then,
My life will be complete.

Lord, let my life be Yours,
Teach me Your holy ways;
For I will always serve,
And lift my voice in praise.

So now, refreshed, revived,
I’m seeking out Your face,
To share with all the world,
The beauty of Your grace.

Lord, thy word abideth (Ravenshaw) – Orchestra

Lord, Thy word abideth – Lyrics

Lord, Thy Word abideth,
And our footsteps guideth;
Who its truth believeth
Light and joy receiveth.

When our foes are near us,
Then Thy Word doth cheer us,
Word of consolation,
Message of salvation.

When the storms are o’er us,
And dark clouds before us,
Then its light directeth,
And our way protecteth.

Who can tell the pleasure,
Who recount the treasure,
By Thy Word imparted
To the simple hearted?

Word of mercy, giving
Succour to the living;
Word of life, supplying
Comfort to the dying!

O that we, discerning,
Its most holy learning,
Lord, may love and fear Thee,
Evermore be near Thee!

Thy kingdom come, O God (St Cecilia)

Hymn – Thy kingdom come, O God – Lyrics

Thy Kingdom come, O God,
Thy rule, O Christ, begin;
Break with Thine iron rod
The tyrannies of sin.

Where is Thy reign of peace,
And purity, and love?
When shall all hatred cease,
As in the realms above?

When comes the promised time
That war shall be no more—
Oppression, lust, and crime,
Shall flee Thy face before?

We pray Thee, Lord, arise,
And come in Thy great might;
Revive our longing eyes,
Which languish for Thy sight.

Men scorn Thy sacred Name,
And wolves devour Thy fold;
By many deeds of shame
We learn that love grows cold.

O’er heathen lands afar
Thick darkness broodeth yet:
Arise, O Morning Star,
Arise, and never set!
