An Angel Appeared To The Shepherds (Brycheiniog – 4 Verses) – Small Ensemble

An Angel Appeared To The Shepherds Lyrics

An angel appeared to the shepherds
As they tended their sheep on that night,
Foretold of the birth of the Saviour,
Who would banish the dark with His Light.

He told of a sign that would guide them
To the place where the infant would lay;
For God placed a star in the heavens
As a sign on that first Christmas Day.

So leaving their sheep far behind them,
With the star shining brightly above,
They followed the sign to a stable,
Where they worshipped God’s mercy and love.

They knelt at the altar of heaven,
All their gifts and their praises did bring,
Though they saw the tiniest baby,
All their worship was poured on a King.

A Mighty Wind Around Us Lyrics

The Spirit’s Fire

1. A mighty wind around us,
Is rushing through this place;
God’s Spirit full surrounds us,
Defeating time and space.

2. The Spirit’s fire consuming,
We burn with faith’s desire;
God’s mighty pow’r upon us,
We blaze with holy fire.

3. Christ calls on us to serve Him,
To witness to His love;
To love and serve our neighbour,
And praise our God above.

4. Let’s all proclaim His message,
And be His hands and feet;
When we serve Christ our Saviour,
Our lives are made complete.

O Happy Band Of Pilgrims (St Hilda, Organ, 6 Verses)

O Happy Band Of Pilgrims Lyrics

O happy band of pilgrims,
If onward you will tread,
With Jesus as your Fellow,
To Jesus as your Head.

The cross that Jesus carried
He carried as your due;
The crown that Jesus weareth
He weareth it for you.

The faith by which ye see Him,
The hope in which ye yearn,
The love that through all troubles
To Him alone will turn.

What are they but forerunners
To lead you to his sight,
The longed-for distant dawning
Of uncreated light?

The trials that beset you,
The sorrows you endure,
Are known to Christ your Saviour,
Whose perfect grace will cure.

O happy band of pilgrims,
Look upward to the skies,
Where such a light affliction
Shall win you such a prize.

Meter 76 76. Lyrics by St Joseph the Hymnographer, translated by John Mason Neale (1818 – 1866). Public Domain.

We Pray Thee, Heavenly Father (Dies Dominica, Organ, 4 Verses)

We Pray Thee, Heavenly Father Lyrics

We pray Thee, heavenly Father, to hear us in Thy love,
And pour upon Thy children the unction from above;
That so in love abiding, from all defilement free,
We may in pureness offer our Eucharist to Thee.

Be Thou our Guide and Helper, O Jesu Christ, we pray;
So may we well approach Thee, if Thou wilt be the Way:
Thou, very Truth, hast promised to help us in our strife,
Food of the weary pilgrim, eternal Source of life.

And Thou, Creator Spirit, look on us, we are Thine;
Renew us in Thy graces, upon our darkness shine;
That, with Thy benediction, upon our souls outpoured,
We may receive in gladness the body of the Lord.

O Trinity of Persons! O Unity most high!
On Thee alone relying Thy servants would draw nigh;
Unworthy in our weakness, on Thee our hope is stayed,
And blest by Thy forgiveness we will not be afraid.

O Sacred Head Surrounded (Passion Chorale, Organ, 3 Verses)

O Sacred Head Surrounded Lyrics

O Sacred head, surrounded
by crown of piercing thorn!
O bleeding head, so wounded,
reviled and put to scorn!
Death’s pallid hue comes over you
The glow of life decays,
yet angel hosts adore thee
and tremble as they gaze

I see thy strength and vigor
all fading in the strife,
and death with cruel rigor,
bereaving thee of life;
O agony and dying!
O love to sinners free!
Jesus, all grace supplying,
O turn thy face on me.

In this thy bitter passion,
Good Shepherd, think of me
with thy most sweet compassion,
unworthy though I be:
beneath thy cross abiding
for ever would I rest,
in thy dear love confiding,
and with thy presence blest.
