Jesus’ love is very wonderful (Jesus’ love) – 3 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!

Refrain

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

Judge eternal, throned in splendour (Rhuddlan)

Hymn – Ah, holy Jesu, how hast thou offended – Lyrics

Judge eternal, throuned in splendour,
Lord of lords and King of kings,
with thy living fire of judgement
purge this realm of bitter things:
solace all its wide dominion
with the healing of thy wings.

Still the weary folk are pining
for the hour that brings release:
and the city’s crowded clangour
cries aloud for sin to cease;
and the homesteads and the woodlands
plead in silence for their peace.

Crown, O God, thine own endeavour;
cleave our darkness with thy sword;
feed thy people’s hungry spirits
with the richness of thy word:
cleanse the body of this nation
through the glory of the Lord.

Joshua fit de battle of Jericho

Hymn – Joshua fit de battle of Jericho – Lyrics

Joshua fit de battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho,
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho and the walls come a-tumblin’ down.
Good Morning Sister Mary,
Good morning Brother Joe.
Gonna tell you ‘bout good old Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Oh!
Refrain

You can talk about your king of Gideon,
You can brag about your man of Saul,
But there’s none like good old Joshua for to make dem, old walls fall. Oh!
Refrain

They tell me that the spear of Joshua was well nigh twelve foot tall
And upon his hip was the double-edged sword
And the man was gospel born. Oh!
Refrain

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand.
“Go blow dem ram’s horns loud and clear
“For the battle am in my hand”. Oh!
Refrain

Then the ram-sheep’s horns ‘gan to blow,
So loudly did they sound.
Then all God’s children shouted out
And the walls come a-tumblin’ down, Oh!
The walls come a-tumblin’ down, Oh!
The walls come a-tumblin’ down!

Refrain
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho.
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho,
And the walls came a tumbling down.

You can talk about your men of Gideon,
You can talk a-bout your men of Saul,
But there’s none like good old Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Oh!

Joshua rose early in the morning,
That is when the trumpets blew.
They marched around the city, at the battle of Jericho. Oh!

Right up to the walls of Jericho,
He marched with spear in hand,
He commanded the children to SHOUT! and the walls came a tumbling down. Oh!
And the walls came a tumbling down!

Let all mortal flesh keep silence (Picardy) – Orchestra

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!

Lo, he comes with clouds descending (Helmsley)

Lo, He comes with clouds descending Lyrics

Lo! He comes with clouds descending,
Once for mortal sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of His train:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ appears on earth to reign.

Every eye shall now behold Him
Robed in dreadful majesty;
We who set at naught and sold Him,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

The dear tokens of His passion
Still His dazzling body bears;
Cause of endless exultation
To His ransomed worshippers;
With what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture
Gaze we on those glorious scars!

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own;
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou shalt reign, and thou alone.

Lord, Thy Church on Earth is seeking (Abbot’s leigh)

Hymn – Lord, Thy Church on Earth is seeking – Lyrics

Lord, Thy Church on Earth is seeking
Thy renewal from above;
Teach us all the art of speaking
With the accent of Thy love.
We would heed Thy great commission;
“Go ye into every place;
Preach, baptize, fulfill My mission,
Serve with love and share My grace.”

Freedom give to those in bondage,
Lift the burdens caused by sin;
Give new hope, new strength and courage,
Grant release from fears within.
Light for darkness, joy for sorrow;
Love for hatred, peace for strife.
These and countless blessings follow
As the Spirit gives new life.

In the streets of every city
Where the bruised and lonely dwell,
We shall show the Savior’s pity,
We shall of His mercy tell.
In all lands and with all races
We shall serve and seek to bring
All the world to render praises,
Christ, to Thee, Redeemer, King.

May the road rise up to meet you (Gaelic Blessing)

Hymn – Gaelic Blessing – Lyrics

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always on your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your fields.
From now until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
