Let all mortal flesh keep silence – Lyrics

Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
Our full homage to demand.

King of kings, yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth He stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
In the body and the blood;
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heavenly food.

Rank on rank the host of heaven
Spreads its vanguard on the way,
As the Light of light descendeth
From the realms of endless day,
That the powers of hell may vanish
As the darkness clears away.

At His feet the six wingèd seraph,
Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the presence,
As with ceaseless voice they cry:
Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Lord Most High!

Author of life divine (Gweedore) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Author of life divine,
who hast a table spread,
furnished with mystic wine
and everlasting bread,
preserve the life Thyself hast giv’n,
and feed and train us up for heav’n.

2. Our needy souls sustain
with fresh supplies of love,
till all Thy life we gain
and all Thy fullness prove,
and strengthened by Thy perfect grace,
behold without a veil Thy face.

Spirit of Mercy, truth and love (Warrington – 3 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Spirit of mercy, truth, and love,
O shed thine influence from above,
and still from age to age convey
the wonders of this sacred day.

In every clime, by every tongue,
be God’s surpassing glory sung;
let all the listening earth be taught
the acts our great Redeemer wrought.

Unfailing comfort, heavenly guide,
still o’er thy holy church preside;
still let us all thy blessings prove,
Spirit of mercy, truth, and love.

Jesus’ love is very wonderful (Jesus’ love) – 2 Verse

Jesus’ love is very wonderful – Lyrics

Refrain
Jesus’ love is very wonderful
Jesus’ love is very wonderful,
Jesus’ love is very wonderful,
Oh, wonderful love!

It’s so high you can’t get over it,
So low you can’t get under it,
So wide you can’t get round it,
Oh, wonderful love!

Refrain

So deep you can’t go through it,
So long you can’t see the end of it,
So strong you can’t resist it,
Oh, wonderful love!

So bright you have to see it,
So loud you have to hear it,
So sweet you have to taste it,
Oh, wonderful love!
