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.

Lord Jesus In Your Mercy (Cara) – Organ

Lyrics

Lord Jesus in Your mercy,
Through each and ev’ry day,
I’ll always praise and serve You,
Please hear me when I pray.

I’ll talk with You each morning,
And speak with You each night,
When You call me I’ll ans-wer,
Help me to win the fight.

All that You ask me Saviour,
Help me through ev’ry day;
And most of all, my plea is
‘Hear me when I pray.’

O, hear me Lord, and answer
According to Your word;
Then may the Spirit prompt me,
When Your still voice I’ve heard.

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.

Let the church bells ring out (Moody – 3 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Let the church bells ring out ‘cross the Earth,
To tell the world of the Saviour’s birth.
The joyful songs by the people sung,
proclaim the birth of the holy One.

Star shining bright at the ending day,
Led men to where the infant Christ lay,
They worshipped Him in those days of old,
With their gifts of myrrh, incense and gold.

Still we today, with a joyful cry,
Lift hearts to voices up to the sky,
The bells that ring out across the earth,
Proclim the news of the Saviour’s birth.

Angels Are Singing (Emmanuel Now) – Piano and SATB or Woodwind and Strings

Lyrics

1. Angels are singing high up in heaven,
Church bells are ringing on earth down below.
The world’s celebrating the birth of the Christchild.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
His glory does show.

2. Shepherds in fields were watching and waiting.
God’s angel singing, and all hea-vens ring.
He told them how God’s light would banish the dark-ness.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
All worship the king!

3. Bright star is shining high in the night sky.
Stopped o’er the stable where Jesus, He lay.
The babe in the manger, God’s love and God’s glory.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
All fol-low the star.

4. Softly and gently, Mary is singing,
We kneel to praise Him with Kings from afar.
The oxen are lowing, as all join in worship.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
Asleep in the hay.

5. Lifting our voices, we sing out praises
With heav’nly choirs our worship we bring.
We tell the great story of Jesus the Saviour.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
We worship our King!

Emmanuel, Emmanuel Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
We worship our King!

Whenever days are darkened (Merthyr Cynog) – Piano, Flute and Horn

Lyrics

Wondrous Heavenly Love    7686 D

Whenever days are darkened
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To let the light come flooding in,
For soul’s release He came.
That blesséd Name I love to hear,
The Name that casts away my fear,
That overflows me from above:
O!  Wondrous, heavenly love!

If times I feel that I’m alone,
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To feel His gentle touch once more,
Upon this ailing frame.
That shepherd’s touch, for me He cares,
The Father’s love with me He shares,
Then overflowing from above,
O!  Wondrous, heavenly love!

When the days have brightened,
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To know He’s always with me,
Constantly the same.
Securely by my Saviour’s side,
Evermore to keep and guide,
Then overflowing from above,
Such wondrous, heavenly love!

Refresh my weary soul (Eccles – 4 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Refresh my weary soul,
Renew this faith of mine,
That I may journey forth
Upon Your path divine.

Lord, let revival come,
To sweep me off my feet,
In holy power, then,
My life will be complete.

Lord, let my life be Yours,
Teach me Your holy ways;
For I will always serve,
And lift my voice in praise.

So now, refreshed, revived,
I’m seeking out Your face,
To share with all the world,
The beauty of Your grace.

Redeemed by Him, and then re-stored (Old Hundredth) – Organ

Lyrics

Redeemed by Him, and then re-stored,
Keeping the death of Christ the Lord.
In memory we share this food,
The bread His flesh, the wine His blood.

Take, eat, and now remember Him,
His body broken in our stead,
In full forgiveness, ’til He come,
Share in the breaking of the bread.

Then as we take the cup of wine,
His life-blood shed to set us free
Deeply we drink from draught of pain,
His blood was shed for you and me.

Our sweet communion, Three in One,
By mercy, through his grace, we meet
To share in this memorial feast,
Then praise and worship at His feet.

Lyrics

Raise your hands, lift your voice,
Let your heart and soul rejoice;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
For he’s worthy to be praised!
He is worthy to be praised!
He is worthy to be praised!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
For He’s worthy to be praised!

To His feet your tributes bring;
Praise the Lord . . .

He will make all conflicts cease;
Praise the Lord . . .

He’s almighty God above;
Praise the Lord . . .
