Whenever days are darkened (Merthyr Cynog) – Piano, Flute and Horn

Lyrics

Wondrous Heavenly Love    7686 D

Whenever days are darkened
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To let the light come flooding in,
For soul’s release He came.
That blesséd Name I love to hear,
The Name that casts away my fear,
That overflows me from above:
O!  Wondrous, heavenly love!

If times I feel that I’m alone,
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To feel His gentle touch once more,
Upon this ailing frame.
That shepherd’s touch, for me He cares,
The Father’s love with me He shares,
Then overflowing from above,
O!  Wondrous, heavenly love!

When the days have brightened,
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To know He’s always with me,
Constantly the same.
Securely by my Saviour’s side,
Evermore to keep and guide,
Then overflowing from above,
Such wondrous, heavenly love!

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.

Redeemed by Him, and then re-stored (Old Hundredth) – Organ

Lyrics

Redeemed by Him, and then re-stored,
Keeping the death of Christ the Lord.
In memory we share this food,
The bread His flesh, the wine His blood.

Take, eat, and now remember Him,
His body broken in our stead,
In full forgiveness, ’til He come,
Share in the breaking of the bread.

Then as we take the cup of wine,
His life-blood shed to set us free
Deeply we drink from draught of pain,
His blood was shed for you and me.

Our sweet communion, Three in One,
By mercy, through his grace, we meet
To share in this memorial feast,
Then praise and worship at His feet.

I bind unto myself today (St Patrick’s Breastplate – 5 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

I bind unto myself today
The strong name of the Trinity
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three.

I bind this day to me forever,
By power of faith, Christ’s incarnation,
His baptism in the Jordan river,
His death on cross for my salvation,
His bursting from the spiced tomb,
His riding up the heavenly way,
His coming at the day of doom,
I bind unto myself today.

I bind unto myself today
The power of God to hold and lead,
God’s eye to watch, God’s might to stay,
God’s ear to hearken to my need,
The wisdom of my God to teach,
God’s hand to guide, God’s shield to ward,
The word of God to give me speech,
God’s heavenly host to be my guard.

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

I bind unto myself the name,
The strong name of the Trinity
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three,
Of whom all nature has creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word.
Praise to the Lord of my salvation;
Salvation is of Christ the Lord!

Raise your hands, lift your voice (Worthy) – Small Ensemble

Lyrics

Raise your hands, lift your voice,
Let your heart and soul rejoice;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
For he’s worthy to be praised!
He is worthy to be praised!
He is worthy to be praised!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
For He’s worthy to be praised!

He is Lord, He is King,
To His feet your tributes bring;
Praise the Lord . . .

He is prince, he is peace,
He will make all conflicts cease;
Praise the Lord . . .

He is Spirit, He is love,
He’s almighty God above;
Praise the Lord . . .

Lyrics

Please note the second verse refrain is followed by a Coda.

Raise your  arms up to the sky,
Raise your hands and lift them high;
Praise the Lord in heaven above,
Praise the Lord heaven above.
Praise Him with your heart and soul,
Praise him for He’s made you whole,
Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord,
Praise the Lord in heaven above.

He’s our God, the Three-in-One,

Praise the Lord, He’s King of Kings.
Praise Him with your heart and soul,

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord,
Praise the Lord in heaven above.

Raise your hands,
Raise your hands,
Oh praise the Lord!

An Angel Appeared To The Shepherds (Brycheiniog – 4 Verses) – Piano, Flute, Horn And Cello

Lyrics

An angel appeared to the shepherds
As they tended their sheep on that night,
Foretold of the birth of the Saviour,
Who would banish the dark with His Light.

He told of a sign that would guide them
To the place where the infant would lay;
For God placed a star in the heavens
As a sign on that first Christmas Day.

So leaving their sheep far behind them,
With the star shining brightly above,
They followed the sign to a stable,
Where they worshipped God’s mercy and love.

They knelt at the altar of heaven,
All their gifts and their praises did bring,
Though they saw the tiniest baby,
All their worship was poured on a King.
