The Wind of Change Forever Blown

Author: Sarojini Naidu, 1879-1949 Hymnal: Singing the Living Tradition #183 (1993) Meter: 8.8.8.8.8.8 Topics: Change Lyrics: 1 The wind of change forever blown across the tumult of our way, tomorrow’s unborn griefs depose the sorrows of our yesterday. Dream yields to dream, strife follows strife, and death unweaves the webs of life. 2 For us the labor and the heat, the broken secrets of our pride, the strenuous lessons of defeat, the flower deferred, the fruit denied; but not the peace, supremely won, great Buddha, of the lotus throne. 3 With futile hands we seek to gain our inaccessible desire, diviner summits to attain, with faith that sinks and feet that tire; but nought shall conquer or control the heav’nward hunger of our soul. 4 The end, elusive and afar, still lures us with its beck’ning flight, and our immortal moments are a session of the infinite. How shall we reach the great, unknown nirvana of your lotus throne? Languages: English Tune Title: MACH'S MIT MIR, GOTT

Fresh as the morning, sure as the sunrise, God always faithful, you do not change. 2 God in our struggles, God in our hunger, suffering with us, taking our part, still you empower us, mothering Spirit, feeding, sustaining, from your own heart. [Refrain] 3 Those without status, those who are nothing, you have made royal, gifted with rights, chosen as partners, midwives of justice, birthing new systems, lighting new lights. [Refrain] 4 Not by your finger, not by your anger will our world order change in a day, but by your people, fearless and faithful, small paper lanterns, lighting the way. [Refrain] 5 Hope we must carry, shining and certain through all our turmoil, terror, and loss, bonding us gladly one to the other, till our world changes facing the cross. [Refrain] Scripture: Psalm 30:5 Languages: English Tune Title: FRESH AS THE MORNING

Bright the cloud and bright the glory

Author: Carl P. Daw, Jr. Hymnal: Church Hymnary (4th ed.) #353 (2005) Meter: 8.7.8.7.8.7 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 Languages: English Tune Title: LUX TREMENDA

The load of Sin

Author: Anne Steele Hymnal: Laudes Domini #222 (1890) Topics: Heart Change of; Heart Change of First Line: How helpless guilty nature lies Lyrics: 1 How helpless guilty nature lies, Unconscious of its load! The heart, unchanged, can never rise To happiness and God. 2 Can aught, beneath a power divine, The stubborn will subdue? 'Tis thine, almighty Spirit! thine, To form the heart anew. 3 'Tis thine, the passions to recall, And upward bid them rise; To make the scales of error fall From reason's darkened eyes; 4 To chase the shades of death away, And bid the sinner live; A beam of heaven, a vital ray, 'Tis thine alone to give. 5 Oh, change these wretched hearts of ours, And give them life divine; Then shall our passions and our powers, Almighty Lord! be thine.
