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.

The God Of Love My Shepherd Is (University – 5 Verses) – Organ

The God Of Love My Shepherd Is ~ Lyrics

1. The God of love my shepherd is,
And he that doth me feed;
While he is mine and I am his,
What can I want or need?

2. He leads me to the tender grass,
Where I both feed and rest;
Then to the streams that gently pass:
In both I have the best.

3. Or if I stray, he doth convert,
And bring my mind in frame,
And all this not for my desert,
But for his holy name.

4. Yea, in death’s shady black abode
Well may I walk, not fear;
For thou art with me, and thy rod
To guide, thy staff to bear.

5. Surely thy sweet and wondrous love
Shall measure all my days;
And, as it never shall remove,
So neither shall my praise.

Fill Thou My Life, O Lord My God (Billing) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 7 verses

Fill thou my life, O Lord my God,
in ev’ry part with praise,
that my whole being may proclaim
thy being and thy ways.

Not for the lip of praise alone,
nor e’en the praising heart,
I ask, but for a life made up
of praise in ev’ry part:

Praise in the common things of life,
Its goings out and in,
Praise in each duty and each deed,
However small and mean.

Fill ev’ry part of me with praise;
Let all my being speak
Of thee and of they love, O Lord,
Poor though I be, and weak.

So shalt thou, Lord, from me, e’en me,
Receive the glory due,
And so shall I begin on earth
The song for ever new.

So shall each fear, each fret, each care
be turned into a song,
and ev’ry winding of the way
the echo shall prolong.

So shall no part of day or night
from sacredness be free,
but all my life, in ev’ry step,
be fellowship with thee.

Christ is the light of all the world (Wiltshire) – Organ

Lyrics

Christ is the light of all the world,
Yet with the darkest night;
Lit by His glory and His love,
He turns the dark to light.

Christ came into a world of sin,
To cast the dark away;
He came to bring mankind the light,
And give the brightest day.

He is the light with which we shine,
When we call Him our friend;
He is our Saviour and our Lord,
We’ll serve Him to the end.

We’ll shine for Him in this dark world,
We’ll be a lamp of grace;
We’ll boldly go into the dark
‘Til we stand face to face.

O For A Heart To Praise My God (Stockton) – Organ

Lyrics – 5 verses

Suitable for Ash Wednesday, Lent, General Usage

O for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free;
A heart that’s sprinkled with the blood
So freely shed for me:

A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
My great Redeemer’s throne;
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone:

A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
Believing, true, and clean,
Which neither life nor death can part
From him that dwells within:

A heart in every thought renewed,
And full of love divine;
Perfect and right and pure and good —
A copy, Lord, of thine.

Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart,
Come quickly from above;
Write thy new name upon my heart,
Thy new best name of Love.

Lord, Teach Us How To Pray Aright (Saint Hugh) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Lord, teach us how to pray aright
With reverence and with fear;
Though dust and ashes in thy sight,
We may, we must, draw near.

2. We perish if we cease from prayer:
O grant us power to pray;
And, when to meet thee we prepare,
Lord, meet us by the way.

3. God of all grace, we bring to thee
A broken, contrite heart;
Give what thine eye delights to see,
Truth in the inward part;

4. Faith in the only sacrifice
That can for sin atone,
To cast our hopes, to fix our eyes,
On Christ, on Christ alone;

5. Patience to watch and wait and weep,
Though mercy long delay;
Courage our fainting souls to keep,
And trust thee though thou slay.

6. Give these, and then thy will be done;
Thus, strengthened with all might,
We, through thy Spirit and thy Son,
Shall pray, and pray aright.

Praise Jesus, Reigning Now On Earth (Richmond – 4 Verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Praise Jesus, reigning now on Earth,
High-seated on the throne;
Praise Him who grants us second birth,
Then takes us for His own.

Though weary in our earthly life,
Now we have been set free;
Freed from our troubles, toil and strife,
Now thus will ever be.

So now we sing eternal praise,
To Christ who is our King;
Rejoice and worship all our days,
To Him our tributes bring.

Praise Him below, Praise Him above,
Our songs of joy we’ll sing;
We’ll praise God’s everlasting love,
Praise Jesus Christ, our King!

A Child is born to us (Denby) – Organ

Lyrics

A child is born to us,
The Son to us is giv’n.
The government of God
Will rest upon His frame.
He is the King of Kings,
New life and hope He brings;
His mighty government
Will never, never end.

We’ll name Him Wonderful,
We’ll call Him Counsellor;
We’ll claim His saving grace,
And we will call Him Friend.
Almighty God is He,
He comes to set us free;
His government of peace
Will never, never end.

He brings abundant life,
Frees us from earthly strife:
We’ll name Him King of Kings
And call Him Lord of Lords.
He is the Prince of Peace,
Through Him all conflicts cease;
He is the Son of God,
He is the Living Word.

Hark The Glad Sound! (Crediton – 4/5 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 to free the captive mind, *
where evil thoughts control,
and for the darkness of the blind
gives light that makes them whole.

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.

* Many sources omit this verse. Request 5 verse recording to include it.

Let angels prostrate fall;
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Who from his altar call;
Who from his altar call;Praise Him whose way of pain ye trod,
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,

To him their hearts enthral;
To him their hearts enthral;

And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him Lord of all.
