Open Now Thy Gates of Beauty

Author: Catherine Winkworth; Benjamin Schmolck Hymnal: LH1941 #1 (1941) Meter: Lyrics: 1 Open now thy gates of beauty, Zion, let me enter there, Where my soul in joyful duty Waits for Him who answers prayer. Oh, how blessed is this place, Filled with solace, light, and grace! 2 Lord, my God, I come before Thee, Come Thou also unto me; Where we find Thee and adore Thee, There a heav'n on earth must be. To my heart, oh, enter Thou, Let it be Thy temple now! 3 Here Thy praise is gladly chanted, Here Thy seed is duly sown; Let my soul, where it is planted, Bring forth precious sheaves alone, So that all I hear may be Fruitful unto life in me. 4 Thou my faith increase and quicken, Let me keep Thy gift divine, Howsoe'er temptations thicken; May Thy Word still o'er me shine As my guiding start through life, As my comfort in my strife. 5 Speak, O God, and I will hear Thee, Let Thy will be done indeed; May I undisturbed draw near Thee While Thou dost Thy people feed. Here of life the fountain flows, Here is balm for all our woes. Amen. Topics: Adoration Opening of Service Scripture: Psalm 100:4 Languages: English Tune Title: NEANDER

To Thy Temple I Repair

Author: James Montgomery Hymnal: LH1941 #2 (1941) Meter: Lyrics: 1 To Thy Temple I repair; Lord, I love to worship there When within the veil I meet Christ before the mercy-seat. 2 I though Him am reconciled, I through Him become Thy child. Abba, Father, give me grace In Thy courts to seek Thy face. 3 While Thy glorious praise is sung, Touch my lips, unloose my tongue, That my joyful soul may bless Christ the Lord, my Righteousness. 4 While the prayers of saints ascend, God of Love, to mine attend. Hear me, for Thy Spirit pleads; Hear, for Jesus intercedes. 5 While I hearken to Thy Law, Fill my soul with humble awe Till Thy Gospel bring to me Life and immortality. 6 While Thy ministers proclaim Peace and pardon in Thy name, Through their voice, by faith, may I Hear Thee speaking from the sky. 7 From Thy house when I return, May my heart within me burn, And at evening let me say, "I have walked with God today." Amen. Topics: Adoration Opening of Service Scripture: Hebrews 9:14 Languages: English Tune Title: GOTT SEI DANK

O Day of Rest and Gladness

Author: Christopher Wordsworth Hymnal: LH1941 #9 (1941) Meter: D Lyrics: 1 O day of rest and gladness, O day of joy and light, O balm of cure and sadness, Most beautiful, most bright, On thee the high and lowly Before th'eternal throne Sing "Holy, holy, holy," To the great Three in One. 2 On thee at the Creation The light first had its birth; On thee for our salvation Christ rose from depths of earth; On thee our Lord victorious The Spirit sent from heav'n, And thus, on thee, most glorious, A three-fold light was giv'n. 3. Thou art a cooling fountain In life's dry, dreary sand; From thee, like Nebo's mountain, We view our Promised Land; A day of sweet reflection, A day of holy love, A day of resurrection From earth to things above. 4 Today on weary nations The heavenly manna falls; To holy convocations The silver trumpet calls, Where Gospel-light is glowing With pure and radiant beams And living water flowing With soul-refreshing streams. 5 New graces ever gaining From this our day of rest, We reach the rest remaining To spirits of the blest. To Holy Ghost be praises, To Father, and to Son; The Church her voice upraises To Thee, blest Three in One. Amen. Topics: Adoration Lord's Day Scripture: Psalm 118:24 Tune Title: ELLACOMBE

This Is the Day the Lord Hath Made

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: LH1941 #10 (1941) Meter: Lyrics: 1 This is the day the Lord hath made; He calls the hours His own; Let heav'n rejoice, let earth be glad And praise surround the throne. 2 Today He rose and left the dead, And Satan's empire fell; Today the saints His triumph spread And all His wonders tell. 3 Hosanna to th'anointed King, To David's holy Son! Help us, O Lord; descend and bring Salvation from the throne. 4 Blest be the Lord, who comes to men With messages of grace; Who comes in God His Father's name To save our sinful race. 5 Hosanna in the highest strains The Church on earth can raise. The highest heavens, in which He reigns Shall give Him nobler praise. Amen. Topics: Adoration Lord's Day Scripture: Psalm 118:24 Tune Title: NUN DANKET ALL'
