Unto Us a Boy is Born

Author: Percy Dearmer; George Ratcliff Woodward Hymnal: Voices United #54 (1996) Meter: 7.7.7.7 Topics: Biblical Places Bethlehem First Line: Unto us a boy is born! Lyrics: 1 Unto us a boy is born! King of all creation, came he to a world forlorn, the Lord of every nation, the Lord of every nation. 2 Christ from heaven descending low comes, on earth a stranger; ox and ass their owner know; becradled in the manger, becradled in the manger. 3 Herod then with fear was filled: "A prince," he said, "in Jewry!" All the little boys he killed at Bethlem in his fury, at Bethlem in his fury. 4 Now may Mary's son, who came so long ago to love us, lead us all with hearts aflame unto the joys above us, unto the joys above us. 5 Omega and Alpha he! Let the organ thunder, while the choir with peals of glee doth rend the air asunder, doth rend the air asunder. Languages: English Tune Title: PUER NOBIS NASCITUR

I Danced in the Morning

Author: Sydney Carter Hymnal: Voices United #352 (1996) Meter: Irregular Topics: Biblical Places Bethlehem Refrain First Line: Dance, then, wherever you may be Lyrics: 1 I danced in the morning when the world was begun, and I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun, and I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth; at Bethlehem I had my birth. [Refrain:] Dance, then, wherever you may be; I am the Lord of the dance, said he, and I’ll lead you all, wherever you may be, and I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he. 2 I danced for the scribe and the pharisee, but they would not dance and they would not follow me; I danced for the fishermen, for James and John; they came with me and the dance went on. [Refrain] 3 I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame; the holy people said it was a shame; they whipped and they stripped and they hung me high, and they left me there on a cross to die. [Refrain] 4 I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black; it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back; they buried my body and they thought I’d gone, but I am the dance and I still go on. [Refrain] 5 They cut me down and I leap up high; I am the life that will never, never die; I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me; I am the Lord of the dance, said he. [Refrain] Languages: English Tune Title: LORD OF THE DANCE

Tiens-moi dans ma douleur tout près de toi, alors que la souffrance fait son oeuvre en silence, toujours plus près de toi, plus près de toi! 3 Plus près de toi, toujours, plus près de toi! Donne-moit ton secourts, soutiens ma foi! Que Satan se déchaîne, ton amour me ramène toujours plus près de toi, plus près de toi! 4 Mon Dieu, plus près de toi! Dans le désert j'ai vu, plus près de toi, ton ciel ouvert, Pèlerin, bon courage! Ton chant brave l'orage: Mon Dieu, plus près de toi, plus près de toi!

On Jordan's Bank

Author: Charles Coffin; John Chandler Hymnal: Voices United #20 (1996) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Biblical Places Jordan First Line: On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry Lyrics: 1 On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry announces that the Lamb is nigh; awake and hearken, for he brings glad tidings of the King of Kings. 2 Then cleansed be every breast from sin; make straight the way for God within; and let each heart prepare a home where such a mighty guest may come. 3 In you, we find abundant life, our refuge in the midst of strife; without your grace we waste away like flowers that wither and decay. 4 Stretch forth your hand, our health restore, and help us rise to fall no more. O let your face upon us shine, and fill the world with love divine. 5 All praise to you, eternal Son, whose advent has our freedom won; and praise to God whom we adore, with Holy Spirit evermore.
