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!

In Candle Glow Most Sacred (Nimrod -2 Verses) – SATB & Organ

In Candle Glow Most Sacred Lyrics

In candle glow most sacred the Spirit rises,
Hovers, blesses one and all who gather here to pray.
Here to pray to God almighty,
Creator, splendid Mother of all,
Who gave birth to moon and sun.
Whose Spirit breathes living breath
To all who trust in Thee.
We who seek for Thee
Find comfort in the soul.

With divine light so holy,
Rises the great Holy Spirit,
Companion at times of peril,
Comforter and dearest friend.
Consoler of hearts,
Lover of our souls,
Creator, Saviour.
We sing to You our joy!
Amen.

Lectionary and Other Uses

History

Edward Elgar completed his Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, known more commonly as the Enigma Variations, in February 1899. There were fourteen in all, based on an original theme dedicated by Elgar “to my friends pictured within”.

Using the term “Enigma” Elgar has caused much speculation as to whether there is a hidden melody within the piece.

The 9th variation “Nimrod” is used here in this anthem and refers to Augustus J. Jaeger, a music editor and close friend of Elgar’s, known for giving the composer critical advice and help with his compositions. Nimrod is described in the Old Testament as “a mighty hunter before the Lord”, Jäger is the German for hunter.

Nimrod has become popular in its own right, often played at British funerals, memorial services, and other solemn occasions, including the National Service of Remembrance.

I Bind Unto Myself Today (St Patrick’s Breastplate – 5 Verses) – Organ

I Bind Unto Myself Today Lyrics

I bind unto myself today
The strong name of the Trinity
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three.

I bind this day to me forever,
By power of faith, Christ’s incarnation,
His baptism in the Jordan river,
His death on cross for my salvation,
His bursting from the spiced tomb,
His riding up the heavenly way,
His coming at the day of doom,
I bind unto myself today.

I bind unto myself today
The power of God to hold and lead,
God’s eye to watch, God’s might to stay,
God’s ear to hearken to my need,
The wisdom of my God to teach,
God’s hand to guide, God’s shield to ward,
The word of God to give me speech,
God’s heavenly host to be my guard.

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

I bind unto myself the name,
The strong name of the Trinity
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three,
Of whom all nature has creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word.
Praise to the Lord of my salvation;
Salvation is of Christ the Lord!

Oh When The Saints Go Marching In (The Saints, Jazz Band, 5 Verses)

Oh When The Saints Lyrics

Oh when the saints go marching in,
Oh when the saints go marching in,
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in

Oh when the drum begins to bang,
Oh when the drum begins to bang,
Lord, how I want to be in that number
Whem the drum begins to bang

Oh when the stars fall from the skies
Oh when the stars fall from the skies
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the stars fall from the skies.

Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call
Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the trumpet sounds its call.

Oh when the Lord calls out the names,
Oh when the Lord calls out the names,
But I’m waiting for that morning,
When the the Lord calls out the names.

The holly and the ivy – Small Ensemble

Lyrics

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown,
Of all trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown.
Refrain
O, the rising of the sun,
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ,
Sweet singing in the choir.

The holly bears a blossom,
As white as lily flow’r,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
To be our dear Saviour. Refrain

The holly bears a berry,
As red as any blood,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
To do poor sinners good. Refrain

The holly bears a prickle,
As sharp as any thorn,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
On Christmas Day in the morn. Refrain

The holly bears a bark,
As bitter as the gall,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
For to redeem us all. Refrain

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown,
Of all trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown. Refrain
