Christ is the light of all the world (Wiltshire) – Organ

Lyrics

Christ is the light of all the world,
Yet with the darkest night;
Lit by His glory and His love,
He turns the dark to light.

Christ came into a world of sin,
To cast the dark away;
He came to bring mankind the light,
And give the brightest day.

He is the light with which we shine,
When we call Him our friend;
He is our Saviour and our Lord,
We’ll serve Him to the end.

We’ll shine for Him in this dark world,
We’ll be a lamp of grace;
We’ll boldly go into the dark
‘Til we stand face to face.

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.

Blest Creator of the Light (Vienna) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Blest Creator of the light,
making day with radiance bright,
thou didst o’er the forming earth
give the golden light its birth.

2. Thou didst mark the night from day
with the dawn’s first piercing ray:
darkness now is drying nigh;
listen to our humble cry.

3. May we ne’er by guilt depressed
lose the way to endless rest;
nor with idle thoughts and vain
bind our souls to earth again.

4. Rather may we heav’nward rise
where eternal treasure lies;
purified by grace within,
hating ev’ry deed of sin.

5. Holy Father, hear our cry
through thy Son our Lord most high,
who our thankful hearts adore
with the Spirit evermore.

Ye servants of God (Paderborn 4 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

1. You servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad his wonderful name;
The name all-victorious of Jesus extol;
His kingdom is glorious and rules over all.

2. God rules in the height, almighty to save;
Though hid from our sight, his presence we have;
The great congregation his triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.

3. “Salvation to God, who sits on the throne!”
Let all cry aloud, and honour the Son;
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb.

4. Then let us adore and give him his right:
All glory and power, all wisdom and might,
All honour and blessing with angels above
And thanks never ceasing for infinite love.

Ye servants of the Lord (Narenza) – Organ

Lyrics

1. Ye servants of the Lord,
each in his office wait,
observant of his heavenly word,
and watchful at his gate.

2. Let all your lamps be bright,
and trim the golden flame;
gird up your loins as in his sight,
for aweful is his name.

3. Watch! ’tis your Lord’s command,
and while we speak, he’s near;
mark the first signal of his hand,
and ready all appear.

4. O happy servant he
in such a posture found!
he shall his Lord with rapture see,
and be with honour crowned.

5. Christ shall the banquet spread
with his own royal hand,
and raise that faithful servant’s head
amid the angelic band.

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!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
For He’s worthy to be praised!

To His feet your tributes bring;

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 the Lord, He’s King of Kings.

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

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

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!
