Lead Us, Heavenly Father, Lead Us (Mannheim) – Organ

Lyrics – 3 verses

Suitable for: Lent, Baptism of Christ, Remebrance Sunday, General Usage

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
O’er this world’s tempestuous sea
Guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us
For we have no help but thee;
Yet possessing every blessing
If our God our Father be

Saviour, breath forgiveness o’er us:
All our weaknesses thou dost know;
Though didst tread this earth before us,
Thou did feel its keenest woe;
Lone and dreary, faint and weary,
Through the desert thou didst go.

Spirit of our God, descending,
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy,
Love with every passion blending,
Pleasure that can never cloy:
Thus provided, pardoned, guided,
Ever can our peace destroy.

Lyrics: James Edmeston (1791 – 1867). Public Domain.

Lord Jesus In Your Mercy (Cara) – Organ

Lyrics – 4 verses

Lord Jesus in Your mercy,
Through each and ev’ry day,
I’ll always praise and serve You,
Please hear me when I pray.

I’ll talk with You each morning,
And speak with You each night,
When You call me I’ll answer,
Help me to win the fight.

All that You ask me Saviour,
Help me through ev’ry day;
And most of all, my plea is
‘Hear me when I pray.’

O, hear me Lord, and answer
According to Your word;
Then may the Spirit prompt me,
When Your still voice I’ve heard.

Lord, Teach Us How To Pray Aright (Saint Hugh) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Lord, teach us how to pray aright
With reverence and with fear;
Though dust and ashes in thy sight,
We may, we must, draw near.

2. We perish if we cease from prayer:
O grant us power to pray;
And, when to meet thee we prepare,
Lord, meet us by the way.

3. God of all grace, we bring to thee
A broken, contrite heart;
Give what thine eye delights to see,
Truth in the inward part;

4. Faith in the only sacrifice
That can for sin atone,
To cast our hopes, to fix our eyes,
On Christ, on Christ alone;

5. Patience to watch and wait and weep,
Though mercy long delay;
Courage our fainting souls to keep,
And trust thee though thou slay.

6. Give these, and then thy will be done;
Thus, strengthened with all might,
We, through thy Spirit and thy Son,
Shall pray, and pray aright.

Let the church bells ring out (Moody – 3 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Let the church bells ring out ‘cross the Earth,
To tell the world of the Saviour’s birth.
The joyful songs by the people sung,
proclaim the birth of the holy One.

Star shining bright at the ending day,
Led men to where the infant Christ lay,
They worshipped Him in those days of old,
With their gifts of myrrh, incense and gold.

Still we today, with a joyful cry,
Lift hearts to voices up to the sky,
The bells that ring out across the earth,
Proclim the news of the Saviour’s birth.

Refresh my weary soul (Eccles – 4 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Refresh my weary soul,
Renew this faith of mine,
That I may journey forth
Upon Your path divine.

Lord, let revival come,
To sweep me off my feet,
In holy power, then,
My life will be complete.

Lord, let my life be Yours,
Teach me Your holy ways;
For I will always serve,
And lift my voice in praise.

So now, refreshed, revived,
I’m seeking out Your face,
To share with all the world,
The beauty of Your grace.

I have found a friend in Jesus (Salvationist) – Piano and Flute

Lyrics

I’ve found a friend in Jesus, He’s everything to me,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He’s my comfort, in trouble He’s my stay;
He tells me every care on Him to roll.
Refrain:
He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tow’r;
I’ve all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
From my heart and now He keeps me by His pow’r.
Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal. Refrain

He’ll never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
A wall of fire about me, I’ve nothing now to fear,
From His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
Where rivers of delight shall ever roll. Refrain

O, you are worthy (Hereford – 4 Verses) – Organ

Lyrics

O, You are worthy, our Lord God,
To You creative power belongs;
All glory, Lord, and honour too,
We praise You with our joyful songs.

The Cherubim and Seraphim
With heav’ns angelic throng rejoice;
For all things have been made by You,
All things created by your choice.

Now holy, holy, holy Lord,
Now upward rise the ‘ter nal song;
Thrice holy Lord, to whom our praise
Is giv’n with joy the whole day long.

Worthy are You and only You,
To all our songs and praise receive;
As with our worship we aspire
For You all glory to achieve.

A mighty wind around us (Cara) – Organ

The Spirit’s Fire – Lyrics

A mighty wind around us,
Is rushing through this place;
God’s Spirit full surrounds us,
Defeating time and space.

The Spirit’s fire consuming,
We burn with faith’s desire;
God’s mighty pow’r upon us,
We blaze with holy fire.

Christ calls on us to serve Him,
To witness to His love;
To love and serve our neighbour,
And praise our God above.

Let’s all proclaim His message,
And be His hands and feet;
When we serve Christ our Saviour,
Our lives are made complete.
