A Great and Mighty Wonder

Author: John M. Neale; St. Germanus, d. 734 Hymnal: LH1941 #76 (1941) Meter: 7.6.7.6.6.7.6 Lyrics: 1 A great and mighty wonder, A full and holy cure: The Virgin bears the Infant With virgin honor pure! Repeat the hymn again: "To God on high be glory And peace on earth to men!" 2 The Word becomes incarnate And yet remains on high, And cherubim sing anthems To shepherds from the sky. Repeat the hymn again: "To God on high be glory And peace on earth to men!" 3 While thus they sing your Monarch, Those bright angelic bands, Rejoice, ye vales and mountains, Ye oceans, clap your hands. Repeat the hymn again: "To God on high be glory And peace on earth to men!" 4 Since all He comes to ransom, By all be He adored, The Infant born in Bethl'em The Savior and the Lord. Repeat the hymn again: "To God on high be glory And peace on earth to men!" 5 And idol forms shall perish, And error shall decay, And Christ shall wield his scepter, Our Lord and God for aye. Repeat the hymn again: "To God on high be glory And peace on earth to men!" Amen. Topics: The Church Year CHRISTMAS Scripture: 1 Timothy 3:16 Languages: English Tune Title: ES IST EIN' ROS'

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Author: Martin Luther Hymnal: LH1941 #262 (1941) Meter: 8.7.8.7.5.5.5.6.7 Lyrics: 1 A mighty Fortress is our God, A trusty Shield and Weapon; He helps us free from ev'ry need That hath us now o'ertaken. The old bitter Foe Now means deadly woe: Deep guile and great might Are his dread arms in fight; On earth is not his equal. 2 With might of ours can naught be done, Soon were our loss effected; But for us fights the Valiant One, Whom God Himself elected. Ask ye, Who is this?-- Jesus Christ it is, Of Sabaoth, Lord, And there's none other God, He holds the field forever. 3 Tho' devils all the world should fill, All eager to devour us, We tremble not, we fear no ill, They cannot overpow'r us. This world's prince may still Scowl fierce as he will, He can harm us none, He's judged; the deed is done; One little word can fell him. 4 The Word they still shall let remain, Nor any thank have for it;, He's by our side upon the plain With His good gifts and Spirit. And take they our life, Goods, fame, child, and wife, Let these all be gone, They yet have nothing won: The Kingdom ours remaineth. Amen.

A Pilgrim and a Stranger

Author: Jane Borthwick; Paul Gerhardt Hymnal: LH1941 #586 (1941) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Lyrics: 1 A pilgrim and a stranger, I journey here below; Far distant is my country, The home to which I go. Here I must toil and travail, Oft weary and opprest, But there my God shall lead me To everlasting rest. 2 I've met with storms and danger E'en from my early years, With enemies and conflicts, With fightings and with fears. There's nothing here that tempts me To wish a longer stay, So I must hasten forward, No halting or delay. 3 It is a well-worn pathway; A host has gone before, The holy saints and prophets, The patriarchs of yore. They trod the toilsome journey In patience and in faith; And them I fain would follow, Like them in life and death. 4 Who would share Abraham's blessing Must Abraham's path pursue, A stranger and a pilgrim, Like him, must journey thro'. The foes must be encountered, The dangers must be passed; A faithful soldier only Receives the crown at last. 5 So I must hasten forward-- Thank God, the end will come! This land of passing shadows Is not my destined home. That evermore abideth, The everlasting city, Jerusalem above, This evermore abideth, The home of light and love. 6 There still my thoughts are dwelling, 'Tis there I long to be; Come, Lord, and call Thy servant To blessedness with Thee. Come, bid my toils be ended, Let all my wand'rings cease; Call from the wayside lodging To Thy sweet home of peace. 7 There I shall dwell forever, No more a parting guest, With all Thy blood-bought children In everlasting rest, The pilgrim toils forgotten, The pilgrim conflicts o'er, All earthly griefs behind me, Eternal joys before. Amen. Topics: The Last Things Death and Burial Scripture: Psalm 89:12 Languages: English Tune Title: HERZLICH TUT MICH

A Rest Remaineth for the Weary

Author: Johann S. Kunth Hymnal: LH1941 #615 (1941) Meter: 9.8.9.8.9.9.8.9.9.8 Lyrics: 1 A rest remaineth for the weary; Arise, sad heart, and grieve no more; Tho' long the way and dark and dreary, It endeth on the golden shore. Before His throne the Lamb will lead thee, On heav’nly pastures He will feed thee, Cast off thy burden, come with haste; Soon will the toil and strife be ended, The weary way which thou hast wended. Sweet is the rest which thou shalt taste. 2 The Father’s house has many a dwelling, And there will be a place for thee. With perfect love His heart is welling Who loved thee from eternity. His precious blood the Lamb hath given That thou might’st share the joys of heaven, And now He calleth far and near: "Ye weary souls, cease your repining, Come while for you My light is shining; Come, sweetest rest awaits you here!" 3 O come, come all, ye weak and weary, Ye souls bowed down with many a care; Arise and leave your dungeons dreary And listen to His promise fair: "Ye bore your burdens meek and lowly, I will fulfill My pledge most holy, I’ll be your Solace and your Rest. Ye are Mine own, I will requite you; Tho' sin and Satan seek to smite you, Rejoice! Your home is with the blest." 4 There rest and peace in endless measure Shall be ours thro' eternity; No grief, no care, shall mar our pleasure, And untold bliss our lot shall be. Oh, had we wings to hasten yonder-- No more o’er earthly ills to ponder-- To join the glad, triumphant band! Make haste, my soul, forget all sadness; For peace awaits thee, joy and gladness-- The perfect rest is nigh at hand. Amen.

Abide with Me! Fast Falls the Eventide

Author: Henry F. Lyte Hymnal: LH1941 #552 (1941) Meter: 10.10.10.10 Lyrics: 1 Abide with me! Fast falls the eventide' The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide. When other helpers fail and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me! 2 Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away. Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou who changest not, abide with me! 3 Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word, But as Thou dwelst with Thy disciples, Lord, Familiar, condescending, patient, free. Come, not to sojourn, but abide with me. 4 Come not in terrors as the King of kings, But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings; Tears for all woes, a heart for ev'ry plea. Come, Friend of sinners, thus abide with me. 5 Thou on my head in every youth didst smile, And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile, Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee. On to the close, O Lord, abide with me. 6 I need Thy presence every passing hour. What but Thy grace can foil the Tempter's power? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, oh, abide with me! 7 I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness. Where is death's sting? where, grave, thy victory? I triumph still if Thou abide with me. 8 Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes, Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies. Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me! Amen. Topics: Times and Seasons Evening Scripture: Luke 24:29 Languages: English Tune Title: EVENTIDE

Abide With Us, the Day is Waning

Author: Oluf H. Smeby; Caspar J. Boye Hymnal: LH1941 #194 (1941) Meter: 9.8.9.8.8.8 First Line: "Abide with us, the day is waning" Lyrics: 1 "Abide with us, the day is waning," Thus prayed the two while on the way; We read that Thou, O Lord, remaining, Didst all their doubts and fears allay. Incline Thine ear, Thou King of Grace, When, praying thus, we seek Thy face. 2 At eventide, Thy Spirit sending, Help us, O Lord, our watch to keep, In prayer devout, before Thee bending, Ere our eyelids close in sleep, Confessing sin in deed and word With hope of mercy from the Lord. 3 Abide with us; with heav'nly gladness Illumine, Lord, our darkest day; And when we weep in pain and sadness, Be Thou our Solace, Strength, and Stay. Tell of Thy woe, Thy vict'ry won, When Thou didst pray: "Thy will be done." 4 Abide with us, O Savior tender, That bitter day when life shall end, When to the grave we must surrender, And fear and pain our hearts shall rend. The shield of faith do Thou bestow When trembling we must meet the foe. 5 When earthly help no more availeth, To sup with us Thou wilt be nigh; Thou givest strength that never faileth, In Thee we grave and death defy. While earth is fading from our sight, Our eyes behold the realms of light. Amen. Topics: The Church Year Easter Scripture: Luke 24:13-35 Languages: English Tune Title: WER NUR DEN LIEBEN GOTT

Across the Sky the Shades of Night

Author: James Hamilton Hymnal: LH1941 #110 (1941) Meter: 8.7.8.7.8.8.7 Lyrics: 1 Across the sky the shades of night This New Year’s Eve are fleeting, We deck Thine altar, Lord, with light, In solemn worship meeting; And as the year’s last hours go by, We raise to Thee our earnest cry, Once more Thy love entreating. 2 Before the cross subdued we bow, To Thee our prayers addressing, Recounting all Thy mercies now, And all our sins confessing; Beseeching Thee this coming year To keep us in Thy faith and fear And crown us with Thy blessing. 3 And while we pray, we lift our eyes To dear ones gone before us, Safe home with thee in Paradise, Whose peace descendeth o’er us; And beg of Thee, when life is past, To reunite us all at last With those who’ve gone before us. 4 We gather up in this brief hour The mem'ry of Thy mercies; Thy wondrous goodness, love and pow'r Our grateful song rehearses; For Thou hast been our Strength and Stay In many a dark and dreary day Of sorrow and reverses. 5 In many an hour when fear and dread, Like evil spells, have bound us And clouds were gathering overhead, Thy providence hath found us. In many a night when seas ran high, Thy gracious presence, drawing nigh, Hath made all calm around us. 6 Then, O great God, in years to come, Whatever may betide us, Right onward through our journey home Be Thou at hand to guide us; Nor leave us till at close of life, Safe from all perils, toil, and strife, Heaven shall enfold and hide us. Amen. Topics: The Church Year New Year's Eve Scripture: Psalm 121:1 Languages: English Tune Title: ALLEIN GOTT IN DER HÖH'
