Spirit of God (Skye Boat Song)

Hymn – Spirit of God – Lyrics

Refrain
Spirit of God, unseen as the wind,
Gentle as is the dove;
Touch us with love and teach us to sing
Joy to you Lord above.

Your voice the sound, heard in the wind,
O’er fields and hills you sing;
Now I can hear the joy, my Lord,
the peace your song will bring.

Refrain

Love in our hearts, praise in our prayers,
We follow on your way;
Lord of the sky, Lord of the Earth,
Answer us when we pray.

Refrain

Take my life and let it be (Innocents) – Organ

Hymn – Take my life and let it be – Lyrics

1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.

2. Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee;
Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.

3. Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.

4. Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

The animals went in two by two (When Jonny Came Marching Home)

Hymn – The animals went in two by two – Lyrics

The animals went in two by two, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The elephant and the kangaroo, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in two by two,
The elephant and the kangaroo,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in three by three, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The wasp, the ant and the bumble bee, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in three by three,
The wasp , the ant and the bumble bee,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in four by four, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The great hippopotamus stuck in the door, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in four by four,
The great hippopotamus stuck in the door,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in five by five, Hurrah! Hurrah!
By eating each other they kept alive, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in five by five,
By eating each other they kept alive,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in six by six, Hurrah! Hurrah!
They turned out monkey because of his tricks, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in six by six,
They turned out monkey because of his tricks,

The animals went in seven by seven, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The little pig thought he was goin’ to heav’n, Hurrah! Hurrah!
The animals went in seven by seven,
The little pig thought he was goin’ to heav’n,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain,
And they all went in-to the Ark for to get out of the rain.

The day of resurrection (Ellacombe)

Hymn – The day of resurrection – Lyrics

The day of resurrection!
Earth, tell it out abroad;
the passover of gladness,
the passover of God.
From death to life eternal,
from earth unto the sky,
our Christ hath brought us over,
with hymns of victory.

Our hearts be pure from evil,
that we may see aright
the Lord in rays eternal
of resurrection light;
and listening to his accents,
may hear, so calm and plain,
his own “All hail!” and, hearing,
may raise the victor strain.

Now let the heavens be joyful!
Let earth the song begin!
Let the round world keep triumph,
and all that is therein!
Let all things seen and unseen
their notes in gladness blend,
for Christ the Lord hath risen,
our joy that hath no end.

The holly and the ivy

Hymn – The holly and the ivy – Lyrics

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown,
Of all trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown.
Refrain
O, the rising of the sun,
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ,
Sweet singing in the choir.

The holly bears a blossom,
As white as lily flow’r,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
To be our dear Saviour. Refrain

The holly bears a berry,
As red as any blood,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
To do poor sinners good. Refrain

The holly bears a prickle,
As sharp as any thorn,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
On Christmas Day in the morn. Refrain

The holly bears a bark,
As bitter as the gall,
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
For to redeem us all. Refrain

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown,
Of all trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown. Refrain

The strife is o’er the battle done (Gelob’t Sei Gott – Vulpuis) – Organ

Hymn – The strife is o’er the battle done – Lyrics

The strife is o’er, the battle done;
Now is the Victor’s triumph won;
Now be the song of praise begun.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Death’s mightiest powers have done their worst,
And Jesus hath His foes dispersed;
Let shouts of praise and joy outburst.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

On the third morn He rose again
Glorious in majesty to reign;
Oh, let us swell the joyful strain!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee.
From death’s dread sting Thy servants free
That we may live and sing to Thee.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
