Ye Servants of God, Your Master Proclaim

Author: Charles Wesley; Norton Meter: Appears in 669 hymnals First Line: Ye servants of God! Your Master proclaim Lyrics: 1 You servants of God, your Master proclaim, and publish abroad his wonderful name; the name all-victorious of Jesus extol; his kingdom is glorious and rules over all. 2 God rules in the height, almighty to save; though hid from our sight, his presence we have; the great congregation his triumph shall sing, ascribing salvation to Jesus our King. 3 "Salvation to God, who sits on the throne!" let all cry aloud, and honor the Son; the praises of Jesus the angels proclaim, fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb. 4 Then let us adore and give him his right: all glory and power, all wisdom and might, all honor and blessing with angels above and thanks never ceasing for infinite love. Psalter Hymnal, 1987 Topics: Adoration; Worship; Worship; liturgical Doxology

O Worship the King all glorious above

Author: Robert Grant Meter: Appears in 1,128 hymnals Lyrics: 1 O worship the King all-glorious above, O gratefully sing his power and his love: our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days, pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise. 2 O tell of his might and sing of his grace, whose robe is the light, whose canopy space. His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form, and dark is his path on the wings of the storm. 3 Your bountiful care, what tongue can recite? It breathes in the air, it shines in the light; it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain, and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain. 4 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, in you do we trust, nor find you to fail. Your mercies, how tender, how firm to the end, our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend! 5 O measureless Might, unchangeable Love, whom angels delight to worship above! Your ransomed creation, with glory ablaze, in true adoration shall sing to your praise! Psalter Hymnal, (Gray) Topics: God Love and Mercy; God the Father God in Nature; God the Father His Majesty and Power; Worship; liturgical Opening Hymns

The Seasons Are Fixed by Wisdom Divine

Author: Unknown Meter: Appears in 4 hymnals Lyrics: 1. The seasons are fixed by wisdom divine, The slow-changing moon show forth God’s design; The sun in his circuit his maker obeys, And running his journey hastes not nor delays. 2. The Lord makes the night, when, leaving their lair, The lions creep forth, God’s bounty to share; The Lord makes the morning, when beasts steal away And men are beginning the work of the day. 3. How many and wise Thy works are, O Lord! The earth with the wealth of wisdom is stored; The sea bears in safety the ships to and fro, And creatures unnumbered it shelters below. 4. Thy creatures all look to Thee for their food; Thy hands open wide, they gather the good; Thy face Thou concealest, in anguish they yearn; Their breath Thou withholdest, to dust they return. 5. Thy Spirit, O Lord, makes life to abound, The earth is renewed, and fruitful the ground; To God ascribe glory and wisdom and might, Let God in His creatures forever delight. 6. Before the Lord’s might earth trembles and quakes, The mountains are rent, and smoke from them breaks; The Lord I will worship through all of my days, Yea, while I have being my God I will praise. 7. Rejoicing in God, my thought shall be sweet, While sinners depart in ruin complete; My soul, bless Jehovah, His name be adored, Come, praise Him, ye people, and worship the Lord. Scripture: Psalm 104 Used With Tune: ASPINWALL

Though troubles assail, and dangers affright

Meter: Appears in 429 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Though troubles assail, and dangers affright, Though friends should all fail, and foes all unite, Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, The promise assures us, "The Lord will provide." 2. The birds, without barn or storehouse, are fed; From them let us learn to trust for our bread: His saints what is fitting shall ne'er be denied, So long as 'tis written, "The Lord will provide." 3. We may, like the ships, by tempests be tossed On perilous deeps, but cannot be lost: Though Satan enrages the wind and the tide, The promise engages "The Lord will provide." 4. When Satan appears to stop up our path, And fills us with fears, we triumph by faith; He cannot take from us, though oft he has tried, The heart cheering promise, "The Lord will provide." 5. His call we obey, like Abram of old, Not knowing our way, but faith makes us bold; For though we are strangers, we have a good guide, And trust, in all dangers, "The Lord will provide." 6. He tells us we're weak--our hope is in vain, The good that we seek we ne'er shall obtain; But when such suggestions our spirits have plied, This answers all questions, "The Lord will provide" 7. No strength of our own, nor goodness we claim; Yet since we have known the Savior's great name, In this our strong tower for safety we hide; The Lord is our power, "The Lord will provide." 8. When life sinks apace, and death is in view, The word of his grace shall comfort us through: Not fearing or doubting, with Christ on our side, We hope to die shouting, "The Lord will provide." Used With Tune: CONFIDENCE Text Sources: Mercer's Cluster, p. 405

We Utter Our Cry

Author: Fred Kaan Meter: Appears in 5 hymnals First Line: We utter our cry: that peace may prevail Lyrics: 1. We utter our cry: that peace may prevail, That earth will survive, and faith must not fail. We pray with our life for the world in our care, For people diminished by doubt and despair. 2. We cry from the fright of our daily scene For strength to say "No" to all that is mean: Designs bearing chaos, extinction of life, All energy wasted on weapons of death. 3. Creator of life, come, share out, we pray, Your Spirit on earth, revealing the Way To leaders conferring 'round tables for peace, That they may from bias and guile be released. 4. Whatever the ill or pressure we face, Lord, hearten and heal, give insight and grace To think and make peace with each heart-beat and breath, Choose Christ before Caesar and life before death! Scripture: Psalm 61:2 Used With Tune: LYONS
