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.

Glory To Thee My God This Night (Tallis’ Canon – 5 Verses) – Organ

Glory To Thee My God This Night ~ Lyrics

1. Glory to thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light:
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath thine own almighty wings.

2. Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done;
That with the world, myself, and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3. Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the awful day.

4. O may my soul on thee repose,
And with sweet sleep mine eyelids close;
Sleep that shall me more vigorous make
To serve my God when I awake.

5. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host:
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
