O what their joy and their glory must be

Author: Peter Abelard, 1079-1142; John Mason Neale, 1818-1866 Hymnal: EH1982 #623 (1985) Meter: 10.10.10.10 Person Name: Peter Abelard, 1079-1142 Lyrics: 1 O what their joy and their glory must be, those endless Sabbaths the blessèd ones see; crown for the valiant, to weary ones rest: God shall be all, and in all ever blest. 2 Truly, "Jerusalem" name we that shore, city of peace that brings joy evermore; wish and fulfillment are not severed there, nor do things prayed for come short of the prayer. 3 There, where no troubles distraction can bring, we the sweet anthems of Zion shall sing; while for thy grace, Lord, their voices of praise thy blessèd people eternally raise. 4 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. 5 Low before him with our praises we fall, of whom, and in whom, and through whom are all; of whom, the Father; and in whom, the Son; through whom, the Spirit, with them ever One.

The spacious firmament on high

Author: Joseph Addison, 1672-1719 Hymnal: EH1982 #409 (1985) Meter: 8.8.8.8 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." Scripture: Psalm 19:1-6 Languages: English Tune Title: CREATION

When all thy mercies, O my God

Author: Joseph Addison, 1672-1719 Hymnal: EH1982 #415 (1985) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Person Name: Joseph Addison, 1672-1719 Lyrics: 1 When all your mercies, O my God, my rising soul surveys, transported with the view, I'm lost in wonder, love, and praise. 2 O how shall words with equal warmth the gratitude declare, that glow within my fervent heart? But thou canst read it there. 3 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts my daily thanks employ; nor is the least a cheerful heart that tastes those gifts with joy. 4 When nature fails, and day and night divide thy works no more, my ever grateful heart, O Lord, thy mercy shall adore. 5 Through all eternity, to thee a joyful song I'll raise; but oh, eternity's too short to utter all thy praise!

God is working his purpose out

Author: Arthur Campbell Ainger, 1841-1919 Hymnal: EH1982 #534 (1985) Meter: Irregular Person Name: Arthur Campbell Ainger, 1841-1919 Lyrics: 1 God is working his purpose out as year succeeds to year: God is working his purpose out, and the time is drawing near; nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be, when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. 2 From utmost east to utmost west, wherever foot hath trod, by the mouth of many messengers goes forth the voice of God; give ear to me, ye continents, ye isles, give ear to me, that earth may filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. 3 March we forth in the strength of God, with the banner of Christ unfurled, that the light of the glorious gospel of truth may shine throughout the world: fight we the fight with sorrow and sin to set their captives free, that earth may filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. 4 All we can do is nothing worth unless God blessed the deed; vainly we hope for the harvest-tide till God gives life to the seed; yet nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be, when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.

Once in royal David's city

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander, 1818-1895; James Waring McCrady, b. 1938 Hymnal: EH1982 #102 (1985) Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 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, the scorned, the lowly lived on earth our Savior holy. 3. [Protected by copyright] 4. For he is our lifelong pattern; daily, when on earth he grew; he was tempted, scorned, rejected, tears and smiles like us he knew. Thus he feels for all our sadness, and he shares in all our gladness. 5. And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love; for that child who seemed so helpless is our Lord in heaven above; and he leads his children on to the place where he is gone. 6. Not in that poor lowly stable, with the oxen standing round, we shall see him; but in heaven, where his saints his throne surround: Christ, revealed to faithful eye, set a God's right hand on high.

There is a green hill far away

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander, 1818-1895 Hymnal: EH1982 #167 (1985) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Person Name: Cecil Frances Alexander, 1818-1895 Lyrics: 1. There is a green hill far away, outside a city wall, where our dear Lord was crucified who died to save us all. 2. We may not know, we cannot tell, what pains he had to bear, but we believe it was for us he hung and suffered there. 3. He died that we might be forgiven, he died to make us good, that we might go at last to heaven, saved by his precious blood. 4. There was no other good enough to pay the price of sin, he only could unlock the gate of heaven and let us in. 5. O dearly, dearly has he loved! And we must love him too, and trust in his redeeming blood, and try his works to do. Languages: English Tune Title: HORSLEY

Tell it out with joyful voice: he has burst his three days' prison; let the whole wide earth rejoice: death is conquered, we are free, Christ has won the victory. 2. Come, ye sad and fearful-hearted, with glad smile and radiant brow! Lent's long shadows have departed; Jesus' woes are over now, and the passion that he bore-- sin and pain can vex no more. 3. Come, with high and holy hymning, hail our Lord's triumphant day; not one dark-some cloud is dimming yonder glorious morning ray, breaking o'er the purple east, symbol of our Easter feast. 4. He is risen, he is risen! He hath opened heaven's gate: we are free from sin's dark prison, risen to a holier state; and a brighter Easter beam on our longing eyes shall stream.

For thy blest saints, a noble throng

Author: Cecil Francis Alexander, 1818-1895 Hymnal: EH1982 #276 (1985) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Person Name: Cecil Francis Alexander, 1818-1895 Lyrics: 1. For thy blest saints, a noble throng, who fell by fire and sword, or early died or flourished long, we praise thy Name, 0 Lord; 2. For James who left his father's side, not lingering by the sea: he heard what could not be denied, thy summons, "Follow me;" 3. he stood with thee beside the dead; he climbed the mount with thee, and saw the glory round thy head, one of thy chosen three; 4. he knelt beneath the olive shade, he drank thy cup of pain, and slain by Herod's flashing blade he saw thy face again. 5. Lord, may we learn to drink thy cup, and meek and firm be found, when thou shalt come to take us up where thine elect are crowned.
