O What Their Joy and Their Glory Must Be

Author: Peter Abelard, 1079-1142; John M. Neale, 1818-1866Hymnal: WASH1957 #480 (1957)Person Name: Peter Abelard, 1079-1142Lyrics: 1 O what their joy and their glory must be, Those endless Sabbaths the blessèd ones see; Crowns for the valiant, to weary ones rest; God shall be All, and in all ever blessed. 2 Truly Jerusalem name we that shore:, "Vision of Peace," that brings joy evermore; Wish and fulfillment can severed be ne'er, Nor the thing 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 shall evermore raise. 4 Low before Him with our praises we fall, Of whom, and in whom, and through whom are all: Of whom, the Father; and through whom, the Son; In whom, the Spirit, with these ever One.

The Spacious Firmament

Author: Joseph Addison, 1672-1719Hymnal: WASH1957 #21 (1957)Person Name: Joseph Addison, 1672-1719First Line: The spacious firmament on highLyrics: 1 The spacious firmament on high, With all the blue, ethereal sky, And spangled heavens, a shining frame, Their great Original proclaim. Th'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 this dark terrestrial ball? What though no real voice nor sound Amidst their radiant orbs be found? In reason's ear they all rejoice, And utter forth a glorious voice. Forever singing, as they shine, "The hand that made us is divine." Amen.Topics: Choir; God the Father God in Nature; WorshipLanguages: EnglishTune Title: CREATION

Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand

Author: Henry Alford, 1810-1871Hymnal: WASH1957 #484 (1957)Person Name: Henry Alford, 1810-1871Lyrics: 1 Ten thousand times ten thousand In sparkling raiment bright, The armies of the ransomed saints Throng up the steeps of light: 'Tis finished, all is finished, Their fight with death and sin: Fling open wide the golden gates And let the victors in. 2 What rush of alleluias Fill all the earth and sky! What ringing of a thousand harps Bespeaks the triumph nigh! O day, for which creation And all its tribes were made; O joy, for all its former woes A thousand fold repaid! 3 O then what raptured greetings On Canaan's happy shore! What knitting severed friendships up Where partings are no more! Then eyes with joy shall sparkle, That brimmed with tears of late, Orphans no longer fatherless, Nor widows desolate. 4 Bring near thy great salvation, Thou Lamb for sinners slain; Fill up the roll of thine elect, Then take thy power and reign: Appear, Desire of nations, Thine exiles long for home; Show in the heavens thy promised sign; Thou Prince and Saviour, come.
