Come Let Us Join Our Cheerful Songs (Nativity, Organ, 4 Verses)

Come Let Us Join Our Cheerful Songs : Lyrics

This recording has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

1. Come, let us join our cheerful songs
With angels round the throne;
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,
But all their joys are one.

2. ‘Worthy the Lamb that died,’ they cry,
‘To be exalted thus’;
‘Worthy the Lamb,’ our lips reply,
‘For he was slain for us.’

3. Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and power divine;
And blessings, more than we can give,
Be, Lord, for ever thine.

4. The whole creation joins in one
To bless the sacred name
Of him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.

This Is The Day The Lord Has Made (Billing, Organ, 5 Verses)

This Is The Day The Lord Has Made : Lyrics

1. This is the day the Lord has made;
He calls the hours His own;
Let heav’n rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.

2. Today he rose and left the dead,
And Satan’s empire fell;
Today the saints His triumphs spread,
And all His wonders tell.

3. Hosanna to th’anointed King,
To David’s holy Son.
Help us, O LORD, descend and bring
Salvation from Your throne.

4. Blest be the Lord, who comes to us
With messages of grace;
Who comes, in God His Father’s name,
To save our sinful race.

5. Hosanna in the highest strains
The Church on Earth can raise;
The highest leav’ns in which He reigns
Shall give him nobler praise.

With Joy We Meditate The Grace (Tallis’ Ordinal, Organ, 5 Verses)

With Joy We Meditate The Grace Lyrics

This recording has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

1. With joy we meditate the grace
Of our High Priest above;
His heart is made of tenderness,
And ever yearns with love.

2. Touched with a sympathy within,
He knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations mean
For he has felt the same.

3. He in the days of feeble flesh
Poured out his cries and tears;
And, in his measure, feels afresh
What every member bears.

4. He’ll never quench the smoking flax,
But raise it to a flame;
The bruisèd reed he never breaks,
Nor scorns the meanest name.

5. Then let our humble faith address
His mercy and his power:
We shall obtain delivering grace
In every needful hour.

Awake our souls (St Petersburg) – Organ

Lyrics

1 Awake, our souls; away, our fears;
let every trembling thought be gone;
awake and run the heavenly race,
and put a cheerful courage on.

2 True, ’tis a strait and thorny road,
and mortal spirits tire and faint;
but they forget the mighty God
that feeds the strength of every saint:

3 The mighty God, whose matchless power
is ever new and ever young,
and firm endures, while endless years
their everlasting circles run.

4 From thee, the overflowing spring,
our souls shall drink a fresh supply,
while such as trust their native strength
shall melt away, and droop, and die.

5 Swift as an eagle cuts the air,
we’ll mount aloft to thine abode;
on wings of love our souls shall fly,
nor tire amidst the heavenly road.

O God Our Help In Ages Past (Saint Anne – 6 Verses) – Orchestra

O God Our Help In Ages Past Lyrics

This recording of O God Our Help In Ages Past  has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

O God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal home.

Under the shadow of thy throne,
still may we dwell secure;
sufficient is thine arm alone,
and our defence is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,
or earth received her frame,
from everlasting, thou art God,
to endless years the same.

A thousand ages, in thy sight,
are like an evening gone;
short as the watch that ends the night,
before the rising sun.

Time, like an ever rolling stream,
bears all who breathe away;
they fly forgotten, as a dream
dies at the opening day.

O God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come;
be thou our guide while life shall last,
and our eternal home.

When I Survey The Wondrous Cross (Rockingham, Organ, 4 Verses)

When I Survey The Wondrous Cross : Lyrics

When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of Glory died;
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
save in the death of Christ, my God;
all the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to his blood.

See, from his head, his hands, his feet,
sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
or thorns compose so rich a crown.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
that were an offering far too small;
love so amazing, so divine,
demands my soul, my life, my all.

Give Us Wings Of Faith (Song 67, Organ, 5 Verses)

Give Us Wings Of Faith Lyrics

1. Give us the wings of faith to rise
Within the veil, and see
The saints above, how great their joys,
How bright their glories be.

2. Once they were mourning here below,
Their couch was wet with tears;
They wrestled hard, as we do now,
With sins and doubts and fears.

3. We ask them whence their vict’ry came:
They, with united breath,
Ascribe their conquest to the Lamb,
Their triumph to his death.

4. They marked the footsteps that he trod,
His zeal inspired their breast,
And, following their incarnate God,
Possess the promised rest.

5. Our glorious Leader claims our praise
For his own pattern given;
While the long cloud of witnesses
Show the same path to heav’n.

Joy To The World (Antioch) – Organ and Trumpet Descant

Lyrics

Suggested uses Easter and Christmas

Joy to the World , the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the World, the Saviour reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Ye Sons Of Men, A Feeble Race (Windsor Revised – 3 Verses) – Organ

Ye Sons Of Men, A Feeble Race ~ Lyrics

Let all the earth, all time and space,
all people, everywhere,
come make the Lord your dwelling place,
come, try and trust God’s care.
God, I’ll sing praises to your name,
and in your strength rejoice;
when your salvation is my theme,
exalted be my voice!

You give the angels charge to keep
my feet in all your ways;
they watch my pillow while I sleep,
and guard my waking days.
Their hands shall bear me, lest I fall
and dash against the stones;
are they not servants at your call,
to guard your faithful ones?

“Because you set your love on me,
I’ll save you,” (says the Lord);
“I’ll keep your soul most willingly,
with my all-powerful word.
For those to whom my name is known,
I’ll honour them in heaven;
there my salvation shall be shown,
and endless life be given.”
