Almighty Framer Of The Skies

Author: Thomas Chatterton, 1752-1770 Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: Almighty framer of the skies! Lyrics: 1 Almighty framer of the skies! O let our pure devotion rise, Like incense in Thy sight! Wrapped in impenetrable shade The texture of our souls was made, Till Thy command gave light. 2 The Sun of glory gleamed the ray, Refined the darkness into day, And bid the vapors fly: Impelled by His eternal love, He left His palaces above, To cheer our gloomy sky. 3 How shall we celebrate the day When God appeared in mortal clay, The mark of worldly scorn; When the archangel’s heavenly lays Attempted the Redeemer’s praise, And hailed salvation’s morn? 4 A humble form the Godhead wore, The pains of poverty He bore, To gaudy pomp unknown: Though in a humble walk He trod, Still was the man Almighty God, In glory all His own. 5 Despised, oppressed, the Godhead bears The torments of this vale of tears, Nor bids His vengeance rise; He saw the creatures He had made Revile His power, His peace invade; He saw with mercy’s eyes. 6 How shall we celebrate His name, Who groaned beneath a life of shame, In all afflictions tried? The soul is raptured to conceive A truth which being must believe: The God eternal died. 7 My soul, exert thy powers, adore, Upon devotion’s plumage soar, To celebrate the day: The God from whom creation sprung Shall animate my grateful tongue; From Him I’ll catch the lay!

Lord of the Church, We Humbly Pray

Author: Edward Osler Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 57 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Lord of the Church, we humbly pray For those who guide us in Thy way, And speak Thy holy Word; With love divine their hearts inspire, And touch their lips with hallowed fire, And needful strength afford. 2 Help them to preach the truth of God, Redemption through the Saviour's blood; And speak Thy holy Word; With love divine their hearts inspire, And touch their lips with hallowed fire, And needful strength afford. 3 So may they live to Thee alone, Then hear the welcome word,"Well done!" And take their crown above; Enter into their Master's joy, And all eternity employ In praise, and bliss, and love. Amen.
