The Heavenly Child In Stature Grows (Tallis’ Ordinal – 5 Verses) – Organ

The Heavenly Child In Stature Grows ~ Lyrics

1. In stature grows the heavenly child,
With death before His eyes;
A lamb unblemished, meek and mild,
Prepared for sacrifice.

2. The Son of God His glory hides
With parents mean and poor;
And He who made the heaven abides
In dwelling place obscure.

3. Those mighty hands that stay the sky
No earthly toil refuse;
And He who set the stars on high
A humble trade pursues.

4. He before whom the angels stand,
At whose behest they fly,
Now yields Himself to man’s command,
And lay His glory by.

5. Jesu, the virgin’s holy son,
We praise Thee and adore,
Who art with God the Father One,
And Spirit evermore.

The Advent Of Our King (Franconia – 5 Verses) – Organ

The Advent Of Our King ~ Lyrics

1. The advent of our King
Our prayers must now employ,
And we must hymns of welcome sing
In strains of holy joy.

2. The everlasting Son
Incarnate deigns to be;
Himself a servant’s form puts on
To set His servants free.

3. O Zion’s Daughter, rise
To meet thy lowly King,
Nor let thy faithless heart despise
The peace He comes to bring.

4. As Judge, on clouds of light,
He soon will come again
And His true members all unite
With Him in heaven to reign.

5. All glory to the Son,
Who comes to set us free,
With Father, Spirit, ever One,
Through all eternity.

On Jordan’s Bank The Baptist’s Cry (Winchester New – 5 Verses) – Organ

On Jordan’s Bank ~ Lyrics

1. On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry
announces that the Lord is nigh;
awake and hearken, for he brings
glad tidings of the King of kings.

2. Then cleansed be every breast from sin;
make straight the way for God within,
prepare we in our hearts a home
where such a mighty Guest may come.

3. For thou art our salvation, Lord,
our refuge and our great reward;
without thy grace we waste away
like flowers that wither and decay.

4. To heal the sick stretch out thine hand,
and bid the fallen sinner stand;
shine forth and let thy light restore
earth’s own true loveliness once more.

5. All praise, eternal Son, to thee,
whose advent doth thy people free;
whom with the Father we adore
and Holy Ghost for evermore.
