Bright the cloud and bright the glory

Author: Carl P. Daw, Jr. Hymnal: Church Hymnary (4th ed.) #353 (2005) Meter: with refrain Topics: Change Lyrics: 1 Bright the cloud and bright the glory, brighter far than mere sun's rays, opening up a glimpse of heaven to disciples' awestruck gaze: power past their comprehension, splendour too profound for praise. All was changed, all was changed; and they would never be the same. 2 Bright the cloud but dark the glory wrought by human enterprise, opening wide with awful terror stark new worlds before our eyes: power grasped but far from mastered, knowledge keen but not yet wise. All has changed, all has changed, and we shall never be the same. 3 From the cloud and from the glory human need brought Jesus down: down to death, then from death rising to receive a victor's crown. Lead us, Christ, to prize compassion more than might, wealth, or renown. Help us change, help us change, that we may never be the same. Scripture: Luke 23:49 Tune Title: LUX TREMENDA

Abide with Me

Author: Henry Francis Lyte Hymnal: Voices United #436 (1996) Meter: Topics: Change First Line: Abide with me, fast falls the eventide 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, O 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 Christ, who changes not, abide with me. 3 I need your presence every passing hour; what but your grace can foil the tempter's power? Who like yourself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me. 4 I have no fear with you at hand to bless; ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness; where is death's sting? Where, grave, your victory? I triumph still, if you abide with me. 5 Hold now your 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.

Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake, all now mysterious shall be bright at last. Be still, my soul, life's tempests still obey the voice that once the waves' wild fury strayed. 3 Be still, my soul, the hour is hastening on when we shall be for ever in God's peace; when disappointment, grief, and fear are gone, love’s joys restored, our strivings shall cease. Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past, all safe and blessed we shall meet at last. Languages: English Tune Title: FINLANDIA
