Jesu, Thou Joy Of Loving Hearts (Ealing – 5 verses) – Organ

Lyrics – 5 verses

Suitable for: Communion, Eucharist, Lent

O Jesus, joy of loving hearts,
Thou fount of life, thou light of men,
From fullest bliss that earth imparts
We turn unfilled to thee again.

Thy truth unchanged has ever stood,
Thou savest those that on thee call;
To them that seek thee, thou art good,
To them that find thee, all in all.

We taste thee, O thou living bread,
And long to feast upon thee still;
We drink of thee, the fountainhead,
And thirst our souls from thee to fill.

Our restless spirits yearn for thee,
Where’er our changeful lot is cast,
Glad that thy gracious smile we see,
Blest that our faith can hold thee fast.

O Jesus, ever with us stay,
Make all our moments calm and bright;
Chase the dark night of sin away,
Shed o’er the world thy holy light.

Now, My Tongue, The Mystery Telling (Grafton, Organ)

Lyrics – 6 verses

Suitable for: Lent, Maundy Thursday, Communion, Eucharist

Now, my tongue, the mystery telling
Of the glorious body sing,
And the blood, all price excelling,
Which the Gentiles’ Lord and King,
In a Virgin’s womb once dwelling,
Shed for this world’s ransoming.

Given for us, and condescending
To be born for us below,
He, with us in converse blending,
Dwelt the seed of truth to sow,
‘Til he closed with wondrous ending
His most patient life of woe.

That last night, at supper lying,
‘Mid the Twelve, his chosen band,
Jesus, with the law complying,
Keeps the feast its rites demand;
Then, more precious food supplying,
Gives himself with his own hand.

Word-made-flesh, true bread he maketh
By his word his flesh to be,
Wine his blood; which whoso taketh
Must from carnal thoughts be free:
Faith alone, though sight forsaketh,
Shows true hearts the mystery.

Therefore we, before him bending,
This great sacrament revere:
Types and shadows have their ending,
For the newer rite is here;
Faith, our outward sense befriending,
Makes our inward vision clear.

Glory let us give and blessing
To the Father and the Son,
Honour, might, and praise addressing,
While eternal ages run;
Ever too his love confessing,
Who, from both, with both is One.

We Hail Thy Presence Glorious (Offertorium, Organ)

Lyrics – 5 verses

Suitable for: Candlemas, Communion, Eucharist

We hail thy Presence glorious,
O Christ our great high Priest,
O’er sin and death victorious,
At thy thanksgiving feast:
As thou art interceding
For us in heaven above,
Thy Church on earth is pleading
Thy perfect work of love.

Through thee in every nation
Thine own their hearts upraise,
Offering one pure Oblation,
One Sacrifice of praise:
With thee in blest communion
The living and the dead
Are joined in closest union,
One Body with one Head.

O living Bread from heaven,
Jesu, our Saviour good,
Who thine own self hast given
To be our souls’ true food;
For us thy body broken
Hung on the Cross of shame:
This Bread its hallowed token
We break in thy dear name.

O stream of love unending,
Poured from the one true Vine,
With our weak nature blending
The strength of life divine;
Our thankful faith confessing
In thy life-blood outpoured,
We drink this Cup of blessing
And praise thy name, O Lord.

May we thy word believing
Thee through thy gifts receive,
That, thou within us living,
We all to God may live;
Draw us from earth to heaven
Till sin and sorrow cease,
Forgiving and forgiven,
In love and joy and peace.

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.

At the Lamb’s High Feast We Sing (Salzburg) – Organ and Descant

Lyrics

Suggest uses include Easter and Communion Services.

At the Lamb’s high feast we sing
Praise to our victorious King,
Who has washed us in the tide
Flowing from his pierced side;
Praise we him whose love divine
Gives his sacred blood for wine,
Gives his body for the feast,
Christ the victim, Christ the priest.

Where the paschal blood is poured,
Death’s dark angel sheathes his sword;
Israel’s hosts triumphant go
Through the wave that drowns the foe.
Praise we Christ, whose blood was shed,
Paschal victim, paschal bread;
With sincerity and love
Eat we manna from above.

Mighty victim from the sky,
Pow’rs of hell beneath thee lie;
Death is conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light:
Hymns of glory and of praise,
Risen Lord, to thee we raise;
Holy Father, praise to thee,
With the Spirit, ever be.

Easter triumph, Easter joy,
Nothing now can this destroy;
From sin’s pow’r do thou set free
Souls new-born, O Lord, in thee.
Hymns of glory and of praise,
Risen Lord, to thee we raise;
Holy Father, praise to thee,
With the Spirit, ever be.

Lord, for tomorrow and its needs (Lord for tomorrow (Providence) – 5 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Lord, for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray;
keep me, my God, from stain of sin
just for today.

2. Let me both diligently work
and duly pray;
Let me be kind in word and deed,
just for today.

3. Let me be slow to do my will,
prompt to obey;
help me to sacrifice myself,
just for today.

4. Let me no wrong or idle word
unthinking say;
set thou a seal upon my lips
just for today.

5. Lord, for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray;
but keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,
just for today.

In the quiet consecration (Agape) – Organ

Lyrics

In the quiet consecration
Of this glad communion hour,
Here we rest in you, Lord Jesus,
Taste your love and touch your power.

Christ, the living bread from heaven,
Christ, whose blood is drink indeed,
Here by faith and with thanksgiving,
In our hearts on you we feed.

By your death for sin atoning,
By your resurrection life,
Hold us fast in joyful union;
Strengthen us to face the strife;

While in joyful holy radiance
Shines the feast that is to come
After conflict, toil, and testing
Your great feast of love and home!
