Isaiah 9:2-8: The race that long in darkness pined

Meter: Appears in 195 hymnals Scripture: Isaiah 9:2-8 First Line: The race that long in darkness pined Lyrics: The race that long in darkness pined, have seen a glorious light; The people dwell in day, who dwelt in death’s surrounding night. To hail thy rise, thou better Sun! the gath’ring nations came, Joyous, as when the reapers bear the harvest treasures home. For thou our burden hast remov’d, and quelled th’ oppressor’s sway, Quick as the slaughtered squadrons fell in Midian’s evil day. To us a Child of hope is barn; to us a Son is giv’n; Him shall the tribes of earth obey, him all the hosts of heav’n. His name shall be the Prince of Peace, for evermore adored, The Wonderful, the Counsellor, the great and mighty Lord. His pow’r increasing still shall spread, his reign no end shall know; Justice shall guard his throne above, and peace abound below.

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

Author: Edmund H. Sears Meter: D Appears in 781 hymnals Scripture: Isaiah 9:6 Lyrics: 1 It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old, From angels bending near the earth, To touch their harps of gold: "Peace on the earth, good will to men, From heaven's all-gracious King": The world in solemn stillness lay, To hear the angels sing. 2 Still through the cloven skies they come, With peaceful wings unfurled, And still their heavenly music floats O'er all the weary world: Above its sad and lowly plains They bend on hovering wing, And ever o'er its Babel sounds The blessed angels sing. 3 And ye, beneath life's crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow, Look now! for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing: O rest beside the weary road, And hear the angels sing. 4 For lo, the days are hastening on, By prophet bards foretold, When with the ever-circling years Comes round the age of gold; When peace shall over all the earth Its ancient splendors fling, And the whole world give back the song Which now the angels sing. Amen. Topics: Christ Birth and Infancy; Christ Strength and Refuge; Peace on Earth; Jesus Christ His Birth Used With Tune: CAROL

Where hate and fear divide us and bitter threats are hurled, in love and mercy guide us, and heal our strife-torn world. 2 From search for wealth and power and scorn of truth and right, from trust in bombs that shower destruction through the night, from pride of race and nation and blindness to your way, deliver every nation, eternal God, we pray! 3 Lord, strengthen all who labor that we may find release from fear of rattling saber, from dread of war's increase. When hope and courage falter, Lord, let your voice be heard; with faith that none can alter, your servants undergird. 4 Keep bright in us the vision of days when war shall cease, when hatred and division give way to love and peace, till dawns the morning glorious when truth and justice reign, and Christ shall rule victorious o'er all the world's domain.
