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.

Saviour, again to thy dear name we raise (Ellers) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Saviour, again to your dear name we raise
with one accord our parting hymn of praise.
We give you thanks before our worship cease,
and now departing, wait your word of peace.

2. Grant us your peace upon our homeward way;
with you began, with you shall end the day.
Guard now the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
that in this house have called upon your name.

3. Grant us your peace, Lord, through the coming night;
turn all our darkness to your perfect light.
Then, while we sleep, our hope and strength renew,
for dark and light are both alike to you.

4. Grant us your peace throughout our earthly life
comfort in sorrow, courage in the strife.
Then when your voice shall make our conflict cease,
call us, O Lord, to your eternal peace.
