Fair Waved The Golden Corn (Holyrood – 5 Verses) – Organ

Fair Waved The Golden Corn ~ Lyrics

1 Fair waved the golden corn
In Canaan’s pleasant land,
When, full of joy, some shining morn,
Went forth the reaper-band.

2 To God so good and great
Their cheerful thanks they pour;
Then carry to his temple-gate
The choicest of their store.

3 Like Israel, Lord, we give
Our earliest fruits to thee,
And pray that, long as we shall live,
We may thy children be.

4 Thine is our youthful prime,
And life and all its pow’rs;
Be with us in our morning time,
And bless our evening hours.

5 In wisdom let us grow,
As years and strength are giv’n,
That we may serve thy Church below,
And join thy saints in heav’n.

Ye Holy Angels Bright (Darwall’s 149th – 4 Verses) – Organ & Trumpet Descant

Ye Holy Angels Bright ~ Lyrics

1. Ye holy angels bright,
Who stand at God’s right hand,
Or through the realms of light
Fly at you Lord’s command,
Assist our song, or else the theme
Too high doth seem for mortal tongue.

2. Ye blessèd souls at rest,
Who ran this heavenly race,
An now, from sin released,
Behold the Saviour’s face,
God’s praises sound, as in His sight
With sweet delight you do abound.

3. Ye saints, who toil below,
Adore your heavenly King,
And onward as ye go
Some joyful anthem sing;
Take what He gives and praise Him still,
Through good or ill, Who ever lives!

4. My soul, bear thou thy part,
Triumph in God above,
And with a well-tuned heart
Sing thou the songs of love;
Let all my days till life shall end,
Whate’er he send be filled with praise.
