    Ash Grove (Let All Things Now Living)

    Buy track Lyrics

    Let all things now living a song of thanksgiving
    To God the creator triumphantly raise.
    Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,
    Who still guides us on to the end of our days.

    God's banners are o'er us, His light goes before us,
    A pillar of fire shining forth in the night.
    Till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished
    As forward we travel from light into light.

    His law he enforces, the stars in their courses
    And sun in its orbit obediently shine;
    The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains,
    The deeps of the ocean proclaim him divine.

    We too should be voicing our love and rejoicing;
    With glad adoration a Song let us raise
    Till all things now living unite in thanksgiving:
    "To God in the highest, Hosanna and praise!"

    Come, Ye Thankful People, Come (St. George's Winsdor)

    Buy track Lyrics

    1. Come, ye thankful people, come,
    Raise the song of harvest home!
    All is safely gathered in,
    Ere the winter storms begin;
    God, our Maker, doth provide
    For our wants to be supplied;
    Come to God's own temple, come;
    Raise the song of harvest home!

    2. We ourselves are God's own field,
    Fruit unto his praise to yield;
    Wheat and tares together sown
    Unto joy or sorrow grown;
    First the blade and then the ear,
    Then the full corn shall appear;
    Grant, O harvest Lord, that we
    Wholesome grain and pure may be.

    3. For the Lord our God shall come,
    And shall take the harvest home;
    From His field shall in that day
    All offences purge away,
    Giving angels charge at last
    In the fire the tares to cast;
    But the fruitful ears to store
    In the garner evermore.

    4. Then, thou Church triumphant come,
    Raise the song of harvest home!
    All be safely gathered in,
    Free from sorrow, free from sin,
    There, forever purified,
    In God's garner to abide;
    Come, ten thousand angels, come,
    Raise the glorious harvest home!

    Come, Ye Thankful People, Come (St. George's Winsdor)

    Aurelia (The Church's One Foundation)

    Buy track Lyrics

    1. The church's one foundation
    is Jesus Christ her Lord;
    she is his new creation
    by water and the Word.
    From heaven he came and sought her
    to be his holy bride;
    with his own blood he bought her,
    and for her life he died.

    2. Elect from every nation,
    yet one o'er all the earth;
    her charter of salvation,
    one Lord, one faith, one birth;
    one holy name she blesses,
    partakes one holy food,
    and to one hope she presses,
    with every grace endued.

    3. Though with a scornful wonder
    we see her sore oppressed,
    by schisms rent asunder,
    by heresies distressed,
    yet saints their watch are keeping;
    their cry goes up, "How long?"
    And soon the night of weeping
    shall be the morn of song.

    4. Mid toil and tribulation,
    and tumult of her war,
    she waits the consummation
    of peace forevermore;
    till, with the vision glorious,
    her longing eyes are blest,
    and the great church victorious
    shall be the church at rest.

    5. Yet she on earth hath union
    with God the Three in One,
    and mystic sweet communion
    with those whose rest is won.
    O happy ones and holy!
    Lord, give us grace that we
    like them, the meek and lowly,
    on high may dwell with thee.

    1. I know that my Redeemer lives.
    What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
    He lives, he lives, who once was dead.
    He lives, my ever-living Head.
    He lives to bless me with his love.
    He lives to plead for me above.
    He lives my hungry soul to feed.
    He lives to bless in time of need.

    2. He lives to grant me rich supply.
    He lives to guide me with his eye.
    He lives to comfort me when faint.
    He lives to hear my soul's complaint.
    He lives to silence all my fears.
    He lives to wipe away my tears.
    He lives to calm my troubled heart.
    He lives all blessings to impart.

    3. He lives, my kind, wise heav'nly Friend.
    He lives and loves me to the end.
    He lives, and while he lives, I'll sing.
    He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King.
    He lives and grants me daily breath.
    He lives, and I shall conquer death.
    He lives my mansion to prepare.
    He lives to bring me safely there.

    4. He lives! All glory to his name!
    He lives, my Savior, still the same.
    Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives:
    "I know that my Redeemer lives!"
    He lives! All glory to his name!
    He lives, my Savior, still the same.
    Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives:
    "I know that my Redeemer lives!"

    On This Day, The First of Days (Lubek)

    Buy track Lyrics

    On this day, the first of days,
    God the Father’s Name we praise;
    Who, creation’s Lord and Spring
    Did the world from darkness bring.

    On this day the eternal Son
    Over death His triumph won;
    On this day the Spirit came
    With His gifts of living flame.

    O that fervent love today
    May in every heart have sway,
    Teaching us to praise aright
    God, the Source of life and light.

    Father, who didst fashion me
    Image of Thyself to be,
    Fill me with Thy love divine,
    Let my every thought be Thine.

    Holy Jesus, may I be
    Dead and buried here with Thee;
    And, by love inflamed, arise
    Unto Thee a sacrifice.

    Thou, who dost all gifts impart,
    Shine, sweet Spirit, in my heart;
    Best of gifts Thyself bestow;
    Make me burn Thy love to know.

    God, the blessèd Three in One,
    Dwell within my heart alone;
    Thou dost give Thyself to me;
    May I give myself to Thee.

    Many and great, O God, are Thy things,
    Maker of earth and sky;
    Thy hands have set the heavens with stars;
    Thy fingers spread the mountains and plains.
    Lo, at Thy Word the waters were formed;
    Deep seas obey Thy voice.

    Grant unto us communion with Thee,
    Thou star abiding One;
    Come unto us and dwell with us;
    With Thee are found the gifts of life,
    Bless us with life that has no end,
    Eternal life with Thee.

    In Christ There Is No East Or West (Mc Kee)

    Buy track Lyrics

    In Christ there is no East or West,
    in him no South or North,
    but one great fellowship of love
    throughout the whole wide earth.

    In him shall true hearts everywhere
    their high communion find,
    his service is the golden cord
    close-binding all mankind.

    Join hands, disciples of the faith,
    whate'er your race may be!
    Who serves my Father as a son
    is surely kin to me.

    In Christ now meet both East and West,
    in him meet South and North,
    all Christly souls are one in him,
    throughout the whole wide earth.

    Jesu, Joy of Man's Desire (Werde Munter)

    Buy track Lyrics

    Jesu, joy of man’s desiring,
    Holy wisdom, love most bright;
    Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
    Soar to uncreated light.
    Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
    With the fire of life impassioned,
    Striving still to truth unknown,
    Soaring, dying round Thy throne.

    Through the way where hope is guiding,
    Hark, what peaceful music rings;
    Where the flock, in Thee confiding,
    Drink of joy from deathless springs.
    Theirs is beauty’s fairest pleasure;
    Theirs is wisdom’s holiest treasure.
    Thou dost ever lead Thine own
    In the love of joys unknown.

    Thee Triune God,

    I Come With Joy To Meet My Lord (Land of Rest)

    Buy track Lyrics

    I come with joy to meet my Lord,
    forgiven, loved, and free,
    in awe and wonder to recall
    his life laid down for me.

    I come with Christians far and near
    to find, as all are fed,
    the new community of love
    in Christ's communion bread.

    As Christ breaks bread and bids us share,
    each proud division ends.
    That love that made us makes us one,
    and strangers now are friends.

    And thus with joy we meet our Lord.
    His presence, always near,
    is in such friendship better known:
    we see and praise him here.

    Together met, together bound,
    we'll go our different ways,
    and as his people in the world,
    we'll live and speak his praise.

    Soul of my Savior sanctify my breast,
    Body of Christ, be thou my saving guest,
    Blood of my Savior, bathe me in thy tide,
    wash me with waters gushing from thy side.

    Strength and protection may thy passion be,
    O blessed Jesus, hear and answer me;
    deep in thy wounds, Lord, hide and shelter me,
    so shall I never, never part from thee.

    Guard and defend me from the foe malign,
    in death's dread moments make me only thine;
    call me and bid me come to thee on high
    where I may praise thee with thy saints for ay.
