Author: Timothy Rees, 1874-1939 Hymnal: EH1982 #511 (1985) Meter: 126.96.36.199 D Tune Title: ABBOT'S LEIGH Lyrics: 1 Holy Spirit, ever living
as the Church's very life;
Holy Spirit, ever striving
through her in a ceaseless strife;
Holy Spirit, ever forming
in the Church the mind of Christ;
thee we praise with endless worshp
for thy fruits and gifts unpriced.
2 Holy Spirit, ever working
through the Church's ministry;
quickening, strengthening and absolving,
setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, ever binding
age to age, and soul to soul,
in a fellowship unending
thee we worship and extol. Languages: English
Author: John Newton, 1725-1807 Hymnal: EH1982 #523 (1985) Meter: 188.8.131.52 D Tune Title: ABBOT'S LEIGH Lyrics: 1 Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God;
he whose word cannot be broken
formed thee for his own abode;
on the Rock of Ages founded,
what can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation's walls surrounded,
thou may'st smile at all thy foes.
2 See! the streams of living waters,
springing from eternal love,
well supply thy sons and daughters
and all fear of want remove.
Who can faint, when such a river
ever flows their thirst to assuage?
Grace which, like the Lord, the giver,
never fails from age to age.
3 Round each habitation hovering,
see the cloud and fire appear
for a glory and a covering,
showing that the Lord is near.
Thus deriving from their banner,
light by night, and shade by day;
safe they feed upon the manna
which he gives them when they pray.
4 Blest inhabitants of Zion,
washed in the Redeemer's blood!
Jesus, whom their souls rely on,
makes them kings and priests to God.
'Tis his love his people raises
over self to reign as kings:
and as priests, his solemn praises
each for a thank-offering brings.
Author: William Dalrymple Maclagen, 1826-1910 Hymnal: EH1982 #349 (1985) Meter: 184.108.40.206 D Tune Title: ABERYSTWYTH Lyrics: 1 Holy Spirit, Lord of love,
who descended from above,
gifts of blessing to bestow
on your waiting Church below,
once again in love draw near
to your servants gathered here;
from their bright baptismal day
you have led them on their way.
2 When the sacred vow is made,
when the hands are on them laid,
come in this most solemn hour
with your strengthening gift of power.
Give them light, your truth to see:
give them life, your own to be;
daily power to conquer sin;
patient faith, the crown to win. Languages: English
Author: John Bowring, 1792-1872 Hymnal: EH1982 #640 (1985) Meter: 220.127.116.11 D Tune Title: ABERYSTWYTH Lyrics: 1 Watchman, tell us of the night,
what its signs of promise are.
Traveler, o'er yon mountain's height,
see that glory-beaming star.
Watchman, does its beauteous ray
aught of joy or hope foretell?
Traveler, yes; it brings the day,
promised day of Israel.
2 Watchman, tell us of the night;
higher yet that star ascends.
Traveler, blessedness and light,
peace and truth its course portends.
Watchman, will its beams alone
gild the spot that gave them birth?
Traveler, ages are its own;
see, it bursts o'er all the earth.
3 Watchman, tell us of the night,
for the morning seems to dawn.
Traveler, darkness takes its flight,
doubt and terror are withdrawn.
Watchman, let thy wanderings cease;
hie thee to thy quiet home.
Traveler, lo! the Prince of Peace,
lo! the Son of God is come!
Author: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788 Hymnal: EH1982 #699 (1985) Meter: 18.104.22.168 D Tune Title: ABERYSTWYTH Lyrics: 1 Jesus, Lover of my soul,
let me to thy bosom fly,
while the nearer waters roll,
while the tempest still is high:
hide me, O my Savior, hide,
till the storm of life be past;
safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last.
2 Other refuge have I none,
hangs my helpless soul on thee;
leave, ah! leave me not alone,
still support and comfort me!
All my trust on thee is stayed;
all my help from thee I bring;
cover my defenseless head
with the shadow of thy wing.
3 Plenteous grace with thee is found,
grace to cleanse from every sin;
let the healing streams abound,
make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art,
freely let me take of thee:
spring thou up within my heart,
rise to all eternity.
Author: Christopher Idle, b. 1938 Hymnal: EH1982 #465 (1985) Meter: 22.214.171.124 Tune Title: ACH BLEIB BEI UNS Lyrics: 1 Eternal light, shine in my heart;
eternal hope, lift up my eyes;
eternal power, be my support;
eternal wisdom, make me wise.
2 Eternal life, raise me from death;
eternal brightness, help me see;
eternal Spirit, give me breath;
eternal Savior, come to me:
3 until by your most costly grace,
invited by your holy word,
at last I come before your face
to know you, my eternal God. Languages: English
Author: Jackson Mason, 1833-1889 Hymnal: EH1982 #235 (1985) Meter: 126.96.36.199 D Tune Title: ACH GOTT, VOM HIMMELREICHE Lyrics: 1. Come sing, ye choirs exultant,
those messengers of God,
through whom the living Gospels
came sounding all abroad!
Whose voice proclaimed salvation
that poured upon the night,
and drove away the shadows,
and filled the world with light.
2. In one harmonious witness
the chosen four combine,
while each his own commission
fulfills in every line;
as, in the prophet's vision
from out the amber flame
in mystic form and image
four living creatures came.
3. Foursquare on this foundation
the Church of Christ remains,
a house to stand unshaken
by floods or winds or rains.
How blest the habitation
of gospel liberty,
where with a holy people
God dwells in Unity.
