How tedious and tasteless the hours (Green Fields) – Organ

Lyrics

1. How tedious and tasteless the hours
When Jesus no longer I see!
Sweet prospects, sweet birds, and sweet flow’rs,
Have all lost their sweetness to me.
The midsummer sun shines but dim;
The fields strive in vain to look gay;
But when I am happy in Him,
December’s as pleasant as May.

2. His name yields the richest perfume,
And sweeter than music His voice;
His presence disperses my gloom,
And makes all within me rejoice;
I should, were He always thus nigh,
Have nothing to wish or to fear;
No mortal so happy as I;
My summer would last all the year.

3. Content with beholding His face,
My all to His pleasure resigned,
No changes of seasons or place
Would make any change in my mind.
While blest with a sense of His love,
A palace a toy would appear;
And prisons would palaces prove,
If Jesus would dwell with me there.

4. Dear Lord, if indeed I am Thine,
If Thou art my sun and my song,
Say, why do I languish and pine?
And why are my winter so long?
O drive these dark clouds from my sky;
Thy soul-cheering presence restore,
Or take me unto Thee on high,
Where winter and clouds are no more.

Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory (Battle Hymn – 4 Verses) – Small Orchestra

Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory ~ Lyrics

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
They have gilded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His day is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never sound retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgement seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free;
Whilst God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Whilst God is marching on.

‘Tis The Gift To Be Simple (Simple Gifts, Folk Band, 3 Verses)

‘Tis The Gift To Be Simple : Lyrics

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain’d,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be asham’d,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.

‘Tis the gift to be loved and that love to return,
‘Tis the gift to be taught and a richer gift to learn,
And when we expect of others what we try to live each day,
Then we’ll all live together and learn to say,
(refrain)

‘Tis the gift to have friends and a true friend to be,
‘Tis the gift to think of others not to only think of “me”,
And when we hear what others really think and really feel,
Then we’ll all live together with a love that is real.
(refrain)

I Can Hear My Saviour Calling (Won’t You Come, Bluegrass, 3 Verses)

I Can Hear My Saviour Calling Lyrics

I can hear my Saviour calling,
Calling gently, far and near;
I can hear the words so clearly,
“Won’t you come and shelter here?”
On my heart the words are falling,
Speaking gently to my soul;
Like the lambs, I hear my Shepherd,
“Won’t you come and be made whole?”

I will come to you, Lord Jesus,
To the shelter of your arm,
Where You go then I will follow,
With no fear, I’m safe from harm.
I can hear the words He’s saying,
Hear them clearly in my heart.
I am praying and am listening
Jesus knows us from the start.

(Instrumental Interlude)

I can hear my Saviour calling,
Calling gently far and near;
I can hear the words so clearly,
“Won’t you come and shelter here?”
I will come to you, Lord Jesus,
To the shelter of your arm;
Where You go then I will follow,
Knowing that I’m safe from harm.

Go, tell it on the mountain

Carol – Go tell it on the mountains – Lyrics

Go, tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go, tell it on the mountain that
Jesus Christ is born.

While shepherds kept their watching
O’er wandering flocks by night,
Behold, from out of heaven,
There shone a holy light. Refrain

And lo, when they had seen it,
They all bowed down and prayed;
They travelled on together
To where the babe was laid. Refrain

When I was a seeker,
I sought both night and day,
I asked the Lord to help me
And he showed me the way. Refrain

He made me a watchman
Upon a city wall,
And, if I am a Christian,
I am the least of all. Refrain

God Bless Our Native Land (National Anthem – 2 Verses) – Organ

God bless our native land Lyrics

God bless our native land!
Firm may she ever stand
Thro’ storm and night!
When the wild tempests rave,
Ruler of wind and wave
Do Thou our country save
By Thy great might.

For her our prayer shall rise
To God above the skies;
On Him we wait.
Thou who art ever nigh,
Guarding with watchful eye,
To Thee aloud we cry,
God save the State!
