All Creatures Of Our God And King (Lasst Uns Erfreuen) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 7 verses

All creatures of our God and King,
lift up your voices, let us sing:
alleluia, alleluia!
Bright brother sun with golden beams,
clear sister moon with softer gleams,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 Swift rushing winds, so wild and strong,
high clouds that sail in heavens along.
O praise him, alleluia!
New-breaking morn, in praise rejoice,
and lights of evening, find a voice:
Refrain.

3 Cool flowing water, pure and clear,
make music for your Lord to hear,
alleluia, alleluia!
Fire, with your flames so fierce and bright,
giving to all both warmth and light:
Refrain.

4 Dear mother earth, who day by day
unfolds God’s blessings on our way,
O praise him, alleluia!
All flowers and fruits that in you grow,
let them his glory also show:
Refrain.

5 And all who are of tender heart,
forgiving others, take your part,
O praise him, alleluia!
All who long pain and sorrow bear,
praise God and cast on him your care:
Refrain.

6 And you, most kind and gentle death,
waiting to hush our final breath,
O praise him, alleluia!
You homeward lead the child of God,
and Christ our Lord the way has trod:
Refrain.

7 Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship God in humbleness,
O praise him, alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
and praise the Spirit, Three in One:
Refrain.

Meter: 88 44 88 and Alleluias. Lyrics by William Henry Draper (1855 – 1933) based on the “Cantico di Frate Sole” of St Francis of Assisi (1182 – 1226). Public Domain.

Ah, Holy Jesu, How Hast Thou Offended (Herzliebster Jesu) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 5 verses

Suitable for: Lent, Passiontide, Good Friday

Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended,
that man to judge thee hath in hate pretended?
By foes derided, by thine own rejected,
O most afflicted.

Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee.
‘Twas I, Lord Jesus, I it was denied thee:
I crucified thee.

Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered;
the slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered;
for our atonement, while we nothing heedeth,
God intercedeth.

For me, kind Jesus, was thy incarnation,
thy mortal sorrow, and thy life’s oblation;
thy death of anguish and thy bitter passion,
for my salvation.

Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee,
I do adore thee, and will ever pray thee,
think on thy pity and thy love unswerving,
not my deserving.

Abide with me (Eventide) – Organ

See also ‘Abide with me’ for Brass Band

Lyrics

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide;
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see—
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness;
Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies;
Heav’n’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

A Man There Lived In Galilee (Tyrol) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 3 verses

Suitable for: Advent, Candlemas, Good Friday

A man there lived in Galilee
like no one else before,
for he alone from first to last
our flesh unsullied wore;
a perfect life of perfect deeds
once to the world was shown,
that everyone might mark his steps
and in them place their own.

A man there died on Calvary,
above all others brave;
he gave to all, he saved and blessed,
himself he scorned to save;
no thought can gauge the weight of woe
on him, the sinless, laid;
we only know that with his death
our ransom price was paid.

A man there stands at God’s right hand,
divine, yet human still;
that brand, heroic, peerless soul
death sought in vain to kill.
All power is his; supreme he rules
all realms of time and space;
yet still our human cares and needs
find in his heart a place.

A Brighter Dawn Is Breaking (Nun Lasst Uns Gott) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 4 verses

A brighter dawn is breaking,
And earth with praise is waking;
For Thou, O King, most highest,
The power of death defiest.

And Thou hast come victorious,
With risen body glorious,
Who now forever livest,
And life abundant givest.

O free the world from blindness,
And fill the world with kindness,
Give sinners resurrection,
Bring striving to perfection.

In sickness give us healing,
In doubt Thy clear revealing,
That praise to Thee be given
In earth as in Thy Heaven.
