He sat to watch o’er customs paid (Winchester New – 6 verses) – Organ

Lyrics

He sat to watch o’er customs paid,
A man of scorned and hardening trade,
Alike the symbol and the tool
Of foreign masters’ hated rule.

But grace within his breast had stirred;
There needed but the timely word:
It came, true Lord of souls, from thee,
That royal summons, ‘Follow me.’

Enough, when thou wast passing by,
To hear thy voice, to meet thine eye:
He rose, responsive to the call,
And left his task, his gains, his all.

O wise exchange! with these to part,
And lay up treasure in the heart –
Who now with crown of light doth shine
Among the apostolic line.

Come, Saviour, as in days of old;
Pass where the world has strongest hold,
And faithless care and selfish greed
Are thorns that choke the holy seed.

Who keep thy gifts, O bid them claim
The steward’s, not the owner’s name;
Who yield up all for thy dear sake,
Let them of Matthew’s wealth partake.

All Praise Be To Thee, My Saviour And King (Hanover) – Organ

Lyrics

All praise be to Thee, my Saviour and King:
Such richness and love to my life You bring.
My hands lift in worship, to You now I raise;
My life Lord, forever, an off ‘ring of praise.

For ever to serve with heart and with soul;
To give You my life, For making me whole.
I’ll praise You forever, Your glory proclaim,
Uplift with the whole world Your glorious name!

All praise to Thee, Lord, for ever to be
The Light of the World, all glory to Thee.
All honour and worship are Yours Lord, alone,
We sing out our praise to the great Three-in-One!

Let angels prostrate fall;
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,

To him their hearts enthral;

And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Ride on! ride on in majesty! (Winchester New)

Hymn – Ride on! ride on in majesty! – Lyrics

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry;
O Saviour meek, pursue thy road
with palms and scattered garments strowed.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
O Christ, thy triumphs now begin
o’er captive death and conquered sin.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
The angel-squadrons of the sky
look down with sad and wondering eyes
to see the approaching sacrifice.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;
the Father on his sapphire throne
expects his own anointed Son.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
bow thy meek head to mortal pain,
then take, O God, thy power, and reign.

Hymn – Rejoice, the Lord is King – Lyrics

Rejoice, the Lord is King! your Lord and King adore;
mortals give thanks and sing, and triumph evermore;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Jesus, the saviour, reigns, the God of truth and love;
when he had purged our stains he took his seat above;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

His kingdom cannot fail, he rules both earth and heaven,
the keys of death and hell are to our Jesus given;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

He sits at God’s right hand till all his foes submit,
and bow to his command, and fall beneath his feet:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Rejoice in glorious hope! Jesus the Judge shall come,
and take his servants up to their eternal home.
We soon shall hear the archangel’s voice;
God’s trumpet call shall sound, rejoice!

All glory, laud and honour (Saint Theodulph)

Lyrics

English Latin
All glory, laud, and honour,
To thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

1. Thou art the King of Israel,
Thou David’s royal Son,
Who in the Lord’s name comest,
The King and Blessed One.
(Refrain)

2. The company of angels
Are praising thee on high,
And we with all creation
In chorus make reply.
(Refrain)

3. The people of the Hebrews
With psalms before thee went;
Our prayer and praise and anthems
Before thee we present.
(Refrain)

4. To thee, before thy passion,
They sang their hymns of praise;
To thee, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise.
(Refrain)

5. Thou didst accept their praises;
Accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest,
Thou good and gracious King.
(Refrain)

Gloria, laus et honor
tibi sit, Rex Christe, Redemptor:
Cui puerile decus prompsit
Hosanna pium.

1. Israel es tu Rex, Davidis et
inclyta proles:
Nomine qui in Domini,
Rex benedicte, venis.
(Refrain)

2. Coetus in excelsis te laudat
caelicus omnis,
Et mortalis homo, et cuncta
creata simul.
(Refrain)

3. Plebs Hebraea tibi cum palmis
obvia venit:
Cum prece, voto, hymnis,
adsumus ecce tibi.
(Refrain)

4. Hi tibi passuro solvebant
munia laudis:
Nos tibi regnanti pangimus
ecce melos.
(Refrain)

5. Hi placuere tibi, placeat
devotio nostra:
Rex bone, Rex clemens, cui
bona cuncta placent.
(Refrain)
