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 . . .

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;

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.

Jesus Lives, Thy Terrors Now (St Albinus – 5 Verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Jesus lives! thy terrors now
can, O death, no more appal us;
Jesus lives! by this we know
thou, O grave, canst not enthral us.
Alleluia.

Jesus lives! henceforth is death
but the gate of life immortal:
this shall calm our trembling breath,
when we pass its gloomy portal.
Alleluia.

Jesus lives! for us he died;
then, alone to Jesus living,
pure in heart may we abide,
glory to our Saviour giving.
Alleluia.

Jesus lives! our hearts know well
naught from us his love shall sever;
life nor death nor powers of hell
tear us from his keeping ever.
Alleluia.

Jesus lives! to him the throne
over all the world is given:
may we go where he is gone,
rest and reign with him in heaven.
Alleluia.

Praise Jesus, Reigning Now On Earth (Richmond – 4 Verses) – Organ

Lyrics

Praise Jesus, reigning now on Earth,
High-seated on the throne;
Praise Him who grants us second birth,
Then takes us for His own.

Though weary in our earthly life,
Now we have been set free;
Freed from our troubles, toil and strife,
Now thus will ever be.

So now we sing eternal praise,
To Christ who is our King;
Rejoice and worship all our days,
To Him our tributes bring.

Praise Him below, Praise Him above,
Our songs of joy we’ll sing;
We’ll praise God’s everlasting love,
Praise Jesus Christ, our King!

Come, let us sing to God,
Come, let us shout for joy!
Let us all worship Christ the King,
The manger-cradled boy!

Come, let us sing to God,

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
