Truly, He Comes to Us

Author: Peter Abelard (1079-1142); Alan Gaunt (1935-) Hymnal: CP1998 #204 (1998) Meter: Person Name: Peter Abelard (1079-1142) First Line: Truly, he comes to us: darkness is ended Lyrics: 1 Truly, he comes to us: darkness is ended; now night is over, his light is ascended: ultimate sunrise, that floods all creation, bringing his secret from death's desolation. 2 Night has made way for the great proclamation, morning has broken, with songs of elation; Christ comes in light from the depths of his prison, death is abandoned, and Jesus is risen. 3 Stripped of the grave-clothes, the body now glorious, rises immortal, for ever victorious; come to fulfil all the prophets have spoken; promise of life that will never be broken. 4 Weeping is over, and death is defeated, life is recovered and joy is completed. Guards, at the sepulchre, scatter before him; Jesus is risen and angels adore him. 5 Highest, Most Holy, once lost and forsaken: now, from the sleep of the dead you awaken; angels appear at the tomb with the story: "He is not here, but is risen in glory." 6 Give God the glory and glad adoration, from whom and through whom and in whom, creation looks for the joy which, in Christ, we inherit: praising the Father, the Son and the Spirit!

O What Their Joy and Their Glory Must Be

Author: Peter Abelard (1079-1142); John Mason Neale (1818-1866) Hymnal: CP1998 #275 (1998) Meter: Person Name: Peter Abelard (1079-1142) Lyrics: 1 O what their joy and their glory must be, those endless sabbaths the blessed ones see: crown for the valiant, to weary ones rest: God shall be all and in all ever blest. 2 What are the monarch, the court, and the throne? What are the peace and the joy that they own? O that the blest ones, who in it have share, all that they feel could as fully declare! 3 Truly Jerusalem name we that shore, vision of peace, that brings joy evermore; wish and fulfillment can be severed ne'er, nor the thing prayed for come short of the prayer. 4 There, where no troubles distraction can bring, we the sweet anthems of Sion shall sing, while for thy grace, Lord, their voices of praise thy blessed people eternally raise. 5 Now, in the meantime, with hearts raised on high, we for that country must yearn and must sigh, seeking Jerusalem, dear native land, through our long exile on Babylon's strand. 6 Low before God with our praises we fall, of whom, and in whom, and through whom are all; praise to the Father, and praise to the Son, praise to the Spirit, with them ever one.

When All Thy Mercies, O My God

Author: Joseph Addison (1672-1719) Hymnal: CP1998 #343 (1998) Meter: Person Name: Joseph Addison (1672-1719) First Line: When all thy mercies, O my God Lyrics: 1 When all thy mercies, O my God, my rising soul surveys, transported with the view, I'm lost in wonder, love, and praise. 2 Unnumbered comforts to my soul thy tender care bestowed, before my infant heart conceived from whom those comforts flowed. 3 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts my daily thanks employ; nor is the least a cheerful heart that tastes those gifts with joy. 4 Through every period of my life thy goodness I'll pursue; and after death, in distant worlds the glorious theme renew. 5 Through all eternity to thee a joyful song I'll raise; for O, eternity's too short to utter all thy praise!

The Spacious Firmament on High

Author: Joseph Addison (1672-1719) Hymnal: CP1998 #426 (1998) Meter: Person Name: Joseph Addison (1672-1719) Lyrics: 1 The spacious firmament on high, with all the blue ethereal sky, and spangled heavens, a shining frame, their great Original proclaim. The unwearied sun from day to day does his Creator's power display; and publishes to every land the work of an almighty hand. 2 Soon as the evening shades prevail, the moon takes up the wondrous tale, and nightly to the listening earth repeats the story of her birth: whilst all the stars that round her burn, and all the planets in their turn, confirm the tidings, as they roll and spread the truth from pole to pole. 3 What though in solemn silence all move round the dark terrestrial ball, what though no real voice nor sound, amid their radiant orbs be found; in reason's ear they all rejoice, and utter forth a glorious voice; for ever singing as they shine, "The hand that made us is divine."

Once in Royal David's City

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895) Hymnal: CP1998 #123 (1998) Meter: Person Name: Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895) Lyrics: 1 Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed, where a mother laid her baby in a manger for his bed. Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. 2 He came down to earth from heaven, who is God and Lord of all, and his shelter was a stable, and his cradle was a stall. With the poor and mean and lowly lived on earth our Saviour holy. 3 Not in that poor lowly stable, with the oxen standing by, we shall see him, but in heaven, set at God's right hand on high, when, like stars, his children crowned all in white shall gather round.

There Is a Green Hill Far Away
