I Am Shaking, Shaking, Shaking (Draycot) – Piano Ensemble

Lyrics ~ 3 verses

Meter 87 87 D.

1. I’m a shaking, shaking, shaking
Up the Heaven and the Earth;
There’s a falling, falling, falling
Like the world has never seen!
And the world is shaking, shaking,
By the mighty hand of God,
That is writing, writing, writing
All our deeds up-on the wall.

2.Hope is standing in the rubble
Of the shaking, shaking, shake
Witnessing the stripping, stripping
Of the multi layers of fake;
And the hand of God is writing
All our deeds upon the wall
While powerful knees are bending
To the greatest ONE of all!

3. Hope takes comfort in the shaking
Of the structures of the world!
There is beauty in destruction:
Stripping, falling, stripping stripped
To reclaim, rebuild, and restore
The Kingdom of our Maker,
Who can never, never falter
Our Creator and Redeemer!

1. Scattered, yet together,
We have come to worship you.
Scattered, yet together,
For we know your word is true!

We approach the mercy throne.
Scattered, yet together,

Our hearts are low with grief.
Scattered, yet together,
We await your sweet relief.
Sweet relief! Sweet relief!

Scattered, yet together,
You will answer fervent prayer!
Fervent prayer! Fervent prayer!

New life without knowing death.
Holy Breath! Holy Breath!

New Every Morning Is The Love (Headingly) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 5 verses

Meter LM.

1. New ev’ry morning is the love
Our wak’ning and uprising prove;
Through sleep and darkness safely brought,
Restored to life and pow’r and thought.

2. New mercies, each returning day,
Hover around us while we pray;
New perils past, new sins forgiv’n
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heav’n.

3. If on our daily course our mind
Be set to hallow all we find,
New treasures still, of countless price,
God will provide for sacrifice.

4. The trivial round, the common task,
Will furnish all we ought to ask,
Room to deny ourselves,
A road to bring us daily nearer God.

5. Only, O Lord, in thy dear love
Fit us for perfect rest above;
And help us, this and ev’ry day,
To live more nearly as we pray.

To The Name Of Our Salvation (Nomen Salvationis) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 6 verses

To the name of our salvation
Laud and honour let us pay,
Which for many a generation
Hid in God’s foreknowledge lay,
But with holy exultation
We may sing aloud today.

Jesus is the name we treasure,
Name beyond what words can tell;
Name of gladness, name of pleasure,
Ear and heart delighting well;
Name of sweetness passing measure,
Saving us from death and hell.

’Tis the name for adoration,
Name for songs of victory,
Name for holy meditation
In this vale of misery,
Name for joyful veneration
By the citizens on high.

’Tis the name that whoso preacheth
Speaks like music to the ear;
Who in prayer this name beseecheth
Sweetest comfort findeth near;
Who its perfect wisdom reacheth
Heavenly joy possesseth here.

Jesus is the name exalted
Over every other name;
In this name, whene’re assaulted,
We can put our foes to shame:
Strength to them who else had halted,
Eyes to blind, and feet to lame.

Therefore we in love adoring
This most blessed name revere,
Holy Jesu, thee imploring
So to write it in us here,
That hereafter heavenward soaring
We may sing with angels there

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.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (Ein Feste Burg Revised – 4 verses) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 4 verses

A mighty fortress is our God,
A trusty shield and weapon;
He helps us free from ev’ry need
That has us now o’ertaken.
The old evil foe
Now means deadly woe;
Deep guile and great might
Are his dread arms in fight;
On earth is not his equal.

With might of ours can naught be done;
Soon were our loss effected.
But for us fights the valiant One
Whom God Himself elected.
You ask, “Who is this?”
Jesus Christ it is,
The almighty Lord.
And there’s none other God;
He holds the field forever.

Though devils all the world should fill,
All eager to devour us,
We tremble not, we fear no ill:
They shall not overpow’r us.
This world’s prince may still
Scowl fierce as he will,
He can harm us none.
He’s judged; the deed is done!
One little word can fell him.

The Word they still shall let remain,
Nor any thanks have for it;
He’s by our side upon the plain
With His good gifts and Spirit.
And do what they will–
Hate, steal, hurt, or kill–
Though all may be gone,
Our victory is won;
The kingdom’s ours forever!

O Dearest Jesus (Herzliebster Jesus) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 15 verses

Suitable for: Lent, Passiontide, Good Friday

1. O dearest Jesus, what law hast Thou broken
That such sharp sentence should on Thee be spoken?
Of what great crime hast Thou to make confession,
What dark transgression?

2. They crown Thy head with thorns, they smite, they scourge Thee;
With cruel mockings to the cross they urge Thee;
They give Thee gall to drink, they still decry Thee;
They crucify Thee.

3. Whence come these sorrows, whence this mortal anguish?
It is my sins for which Thou, Lord, must languish;
Yea, all the wrath, the woe, Thou dost inherit,
This I do merit.

4. What punishment so strange is suffered yonder!
The Shepherd dies for sheep that loved to wander;
The Master pays the debt His servants owe Him,
Who would not know Him.

5. The sinless Son of God must die in sadness;
The sinful child of man may live in gladness;
Man forfeited his life and is acquitted;
God is committed.

6. There was no spot in me by sin untainted;
Sick with sin’s poison, all my heart had fainted;
My heavy guilt to hell had well-nigh brought me,
Such woe it wrought me.

7. O wondrous love, whose depth no heart hath sounded,
That brought Thee here, by foes and thieves surrounded!
All worldly pleasures, heedless, I was trying
While Thou wert dying.

8. O mighty King, no time can dim Thy glory!
How shall I spread abroad Thy wondrous story?
How shall I find some worthy gifts to proffer?
What dare I offer?

9. For vainly doth our human wisdom ponder—-
Thy woes, Thy mercy, still transcend our wonder.
Oh, how should I do aught that could delight Thee!
Can I requite Thee?

10. Yet unrequited, Lord, I would not leave Thee;
I will renounce whate’er doth vex or grieve Thee
And quench with thoughts of Thee and prayers most lowly
All fires unholy.

11. But since my strength will nevermore suffice me
To crucify desires that still entice me,
To all good deeds, oh, let Thy Spirit win me
And reign within me!

12. I’ll think upon Thy mercy without ceasing,
That earth’s vain joys to me no more be pleasing;
To do Thy will shall be my sole endeavor
Henceforth forever.

13. Whate’er of earthly good this life may grant me.
I’ll risk for Thee; no shame, no cross, shall daunt me.
I shall not fear what man can do to harm me
Nor death alarm me.

14. But worthless is my sacrifice, I own it;
Yet, Lord, for love’s sake Thou wilt not disown it;
Thou wilt accept my gift in Thy great meekness
Nor shame my weakness.

15. And when, dear Lord, before Thy throne in heaven
To me the crown of joy at last is given,
Where sweetest hymns Thy saints forever raise Thee,
I, too, shall praise Thee.

Originally a German hymn by Johann Heermann (1585-1647), translated by Catherine Winkworth (1827-1878), this contemplative hymns is often used on Good Friday.. Public Domain.

A Carolling! A Carolling! (Ellacombe) – Organ

Lyrics

A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of the Saviour’s birth;
Of shepherds and of angels,
Of peace on all the Earth.
A carolling! A carolling!
The songs so full of joy.
Sing with the heav’nly choir above
That praised the infant boy.

A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of the guiding star;
Of shepherds and of wise men
Of how they journeyed far.
A carolling! A carolling!
Sing of that glorious day
When God came down to our world,
A baby in the hay.

A carolling! A carolling!
A story of God’s love:
The Christ child in the manger,
Who came from up above.
A carolling! A carolling!
Our song will never end,
Till every person, everywhere,
Knows Jesus Christ as friend.
