ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS MUSIC:

ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH

(Hymn Reharmonization)


Angels we have heard on high,

sweetly singing o'er the plains;

and the mountains in reply,

echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Gloria in excelsis Deo!


Shepherds why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

which inspire your heav'nly song?

Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Gloria in excelsis Deo!


Come to Bethlehem and see

Him whose birth the angels sing;

come, adore on bended knee

Christ, the Lord, the newborn King.

Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Gloria in excelsis Deo!





AS WITH GLADNESS MEN OF OLD

(New Hymn Tune)


As with gladness men of old

did the guiding star behold;

as with joy they hailed its light,

leading onward, beaming bright.

So, most gracious Lord, may we

evermore be led to Thee;

evermore be led to Thee.


As with joyful steps they sped

to that lowly manger bed.

There to bend the knee before

Him whom heaven and earth adore.

So may we with willing feet

ever seek the mercy seat;

ever seek the mercy seat.


As they offered gifts most rare

at the manger rude and bare,

so may we with holy joy,

pure and free from sin's alloy,

all our costliest treasures bring,

Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King;

Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King.


Holy Jesus, every day

keep us in the narrow way;

and, when earthly things are past,

bring our ransomed souls at last

where they need no star to guide,

where no clouds Thy glory hide;

where no clouds Thy glory hide.






CHILD IN THE MANGER

(NEW HYMN TUNE)


Child in the manger, Infant of Mary;

Outcast and Stranger, Lord of all;

Child who inherits all our transgressions,

all our demerits on Him fall.


Once the most holy Child of salvation

gently and lowly lived below;

now as our glorious Mighty Redeemer,

see Him victorious o'er each foe.


Prophets foretold Him, Infant of wonder;

angels behold Him on His throne;

worthy our Savior of all our praises;

happy forever are His own.

Alleluia! Amen.





COMFORT, COMFORT YE MY PEOPLE (Solo)

(New Hymn Tune)


Comfort, comfort ye My people,

speak ye peace, thus saith our God.

Comfort those who sit in darkness,

mourning 'neath their sorrows load.

Speak ye to Jerusalem

of the peace that waits for them;

Tell her that her sins I cover,

and her warfare now is over.


Hark, the voice of one that crieth

in the desert far and near,

bidding all men to repentance

since the Kingdom now is here.

O that warning cry obey!

Now prepare for God a way;

Let the valleys rise to meet Him,

and the hills bow down to greet Him.


Make ye straight what long was crooked,

make the rougher places plain;

let your hearts be true and humble,

as befits His holy reign.

For the glory of the Lord

now o'er earth is shed abroad;

and all flesh shall see the token

that His Word is never broken.





LAMB OF GOD

Lamb of God; Lamb of God.

Lord, You are our Lamb of God.

ONE SPECIAL NIGHT


One special night, one holy night,

God came to us to light up our lives,

so we could behold His glory.

One special night, one holy night,

while we were all so lost in sin,

God gave to us His only Son;

His precious gift to save us from sin,

so we could behold God's glory.

Glory to God! Glory to God!

Glory to God in the highest!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

One special night, One holy night,

was born a perfect little Lamb!

Slain from before the world began,

and brings to us life eternal!

Glory to God in the highest!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Jesus has come to be our Savior!





SING HOSANNAS

(New Hymn Tune)


Hark to the story angels are telling of the birth of Jesus;

born in a manger 'mid cattle lowing is the Babe most holy.

Sing, all ye angels! Sing, all ye shepherds!

Sing to the little Babe in the manger;

Sing a soft hosanna; sing a loud hosanna!

Jesus Christ is born today!


Shepherds akeeping watch on the hillside

heard the wondrous story;

knelt down in wonder, gazed at the glory suddenly appearing.

Sing, all ye angels! Sing, all ye shepherds!

Sing to the little Babe in the manger;

Sing a soft hosanna; sing a loud hosanna!

Jesus Christ is born today!


Come, all ye people, come to the manger,

worship and adore Him;

Sing as the angels, kneel as the shepherds,

to the Christ, our Savior.

Sing, all ye angels! Sing, all ye shepherds!

Sing to the little Babe in the manger;

Sing a soft hosanna; Sing a loud hosanna!

Jesus Christ is born today! Jesus Christ is born today!





THE PEOPLE THAT IN DARKNESS SAT

(New Hymn Tune)


The people that in darkness sat

a glorious Light have seen.

The Light has shined on them who long

in shades of night have been.


To hail Thee, Sun of Righteousness,

the gathering nations come;

they joy as when the reapers bear

their harvest treasures home.


For unto us a Child is born,

to us a Son is given.

And on His shoulders ever rests

all power in earth and heaven.


His name shall be the Prince of Peace,

forevermore adored,

the Wonderful, the Counsellor,

the great and mighty Lord.


His righteous government and power

shall over all extend;

on judgment and on justice based

His reign shall have no end.


Lord Jesus, reign in us, we pray,

and make us Thine alone,

who with the Father ever art,

and Holy Spirit, one.

AMAZING LOVE (And Can It Be?)

(New Hymn Tune)



And can it be that I should gain

an int'rest in the Savior's blood?

Died He for me who caused His pain?

For me,who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! How can it be

that Thou, my God shouldst die for me?

Amazing love! How can it be 

That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me!


'Tis mystery all! Th'Immortal dies!

Who can explore His strange design?

In vain the first-born seraph tries

to sound the depths of love divine!

'Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;

let angel minds inquire no more.

Amazing love! How can it be

that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me!


He left His Father's throne above,

so free, s infinite His grace!

Emptied Himself of all but love,

and bled for Adam's helpless race!

'Tis mercy all, immense and free,

for, O my God, it found out me.

Amazing love! How can it be

that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me!


Long my imprisoned spirit lay

fast bound in sin and nature's night.

Thine eye diffused a quick'ning ray:

I woke--the dungeon flamed with light!

My chains fell off, my heart was free, 

I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

Amazing love! How can it be

that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me!


No condemnation now I dread:

Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!

Alive in Him, my living Head,

and clothed in righteousness divine,

bold I approach th'eternal throne,

and claim the crown, through Christ my own.

Amazing love! How can it be

that Thou, my God,shouldst die for me!




AT THE NAME OF JESUS


At the name of Jesus

Ev'ry knee should bow, 

and ev'ry tongue confess that

Jesus Christ is Lord.


God exalted Jesus Christ

to the highest place.

And gave to Him the highest name

that is above all names.


At the name of Jesus

ev'ry knee should bow,

and ev'ry tongue confess that

Jesus Christ is Lord.


He is Lord, He is Lord

to the glory of God the Father.

LAMB OF GOD

Lamb of God; Lamb of God.

Lord, You are our Lamb of God.

(Repeat twice)





LOVE SO AMAZING


When I survey the wondrous cross

on which the Prince of Glory died,

my richest gain I count but loss,

and pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast

save in the death of Christ, my God;

all the vain things that charm me most,

I sacrifice them to His blood.


See, from His head, His hand, His feet,

Sorrow and love flow mingled down;

did e'er such love and sorrow meet 

or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Were the whole realm of nature mine,

that were an off'ring far too small;

Love so amazing, Love so Divine,

demands my soul, my life, my all!


My life, my love, I give to Thee,

Thou Lamb of God who died for me.

Oh, may I ever faithful be;

only to my Savior and my God!

I now believe that Thou dost receive;

for Thou hast died so that I might live,

and now henceforth I shall trust in Thee;

trust in my Savior and my God!


Oh, Thou who died on Calv'ry's Tree,

to save my soul and make me free.

I'll consecrate my life to Thee;

only to my Savior and my God!

I'll live for Him who died for me;

How precious to Him I must be!

Love so amazing, Love so Divine,

demands my soul, my life, my all!


This love of God demands my all!

Amen. Amen.

WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS

(First New Hymn Tune)


When I survey the wondrous cross

on which the Prince of Glory died,

my richest gain I count but loss,

and pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,

save in the death of Christ, my God;

All the vain things that charm me most--

I sacrifice them to His blood.


See, from His head, His hands, His feet,

Sorrow and love flow mingled down;

did e'er such love and sorrow meet,

or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Were the whole realm of nature mine, 

that were a present far too small;

Love so amazing, so divine,

demands my soul, my life, my all.

WORTHY IS THE LAMB

(New Hymn Tune/Lyrics Adapted from Original Hymn)


"Worthy is the Lamb!" the host of heaven sing. 

As before the throne they make His praise ring;

"Worthy is the Lamb the book to open wide;

worthy is the Lamb who for us died."

Jesus, Lamb of God, Oh,

Jesus, Lamb of God,

our Precious Lamb of God,

all praise to Him alone!


Worthy is the Lamb, who shed His precious blood

to restore a world to happiness and God;

when no eye could pity and no arm could save,

Jesus' life for us He freely gave.

Jesus, Lamb of God, Oh,

Jesus, Lamb of God,

our Precious Lamb of God,

all praise to Him alone!


Worthy is the Lamb, the bleeding sacrifice,

who for Adam's race paid such a fearful price;

worthy is the Lamb, the paschal Lamb of God,

for the world is saved through His dear blood.

Jesus, Lamb of God, Oh,

Jesus, Lamb of God,

our Precious Lamb of God,

all praise to Him alone!


"Worthy is the Lamb!" let men and angels sing;

"Worthy is the Lamb!" let hallelujahs ring;

and when life is past, we'll shout from Heaven's shore,

"Worthy is the Lamb forevermore!"

Jesus, Lamb of God, Oh,

Jesus, Lamb of God,

our Precious Lamb of God,

all praise to Him alone!






FATHER'S DAY:

A FATHER'S PRAYER


O Lord, I humbly come to You with this my earnest plea:

Lord, help me to become the man that You would have me be.

Purge me from sin; cleanse me within;

and fill my life with You, O Lord,

Your love and pow'r to know.

Help me each day, along life's way,

to keep You first in all I do,

and by Your grace, to grow.


O God, my Father, full of love, Your grace abounds to me.

Lord, through my life may You alone be all my children see.

Purge us from sin; cleanse us within;

and fill our lives with You, O Lord,

Your love and pow'r to know.

Help us each day, along life's way,

to keep You first in all we do,

and by Your grace, to grow.


And Lord, when all our days are done, 

    when life on earth is through,

we then will know life's greatest joy:  eternal life with You.

There we shall sing, eternally;

and as we gather 'round Tour throne,

we'll praise our Lord and King:

"Thanks be to God! Praise Him alone!"

But until then, O Lord, we pray,

to You the lost we'll bring.





AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE


Chorus:


As for me and my house,

We will serve You, Lord,

all the days of our live.

As for me and my house,

we will serve You, Lord;

yes, we will serve You, Lord!


For, Lord God,

we love and honor You;

You alone are worthy to be praised!

Holy God, we worship You;

yes, we've come to worship You!

(Chorus)


O Lord God,

the beginning and the End!

Your great love has saved us from our sin!

Lord, we bless Your Holy Name!

Yes, we bless Your Holy Name!

(Chorus)


For, O Lord, we exalt

and praise Your Name;

and with all our heart,

soul, mind, and strength,

we love You, O Lord God!

Yes, we love You, our Lord God!


Reprise:


For, Lord God,

I love and honor You;

You alone are worthy of my praise!

Holy God, I worship You;

Lord, I'm here to worship You!

Lord, I'm here to worship You!

Lord, I'm here to worship You!





 

GENERAL MUSIC:

AMAZING GRACE

(New Hymn Tune)


Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

that saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found--

was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,

and grace my fears relieved.

How precious did that grace appear

the hour I first believed!


Through many dangers, toils, and snares,

I have already come;

'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,

and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,

His Word my hope secures;

He will my shield and portion be

as long as life endures.

And when this flesh and heart shall fail,

and mortal life shall cease;

I shall possess within the veil

a life of joy and peace.

When we've been there ten thousand years,

bright shining as the sun,

we've no less days to sing God's praise

than when we first begun.





BE STILL, MY SOUL

(Tune:  PRECIOUS PEACE)


Be still, my soul, the Lord is on thy side;

bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;

leave to thy God to order and provide;

in every change He faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul, thy best, thy Heavenly Friend

through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.


Be still, my soul, thy God doth undertake

to guide the future as he has the past.

Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;

all now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still, my soul, the waves and winds still know

His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.


Be still, my soul, the hour is hastening on

when we shall be forever with the Lord,

when disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,

sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.

Be still, my soul, when change and tears are past,

all safe and blessed we shall meet at last.






DRAWN TO YOU


O my God, when I consider allthe ways 

You show me Your great love; 

I wonder why You'd go so far 

to love one such as me. 

Yet it's not what I've done nor who I am 

that draws You to me; 

It's Who You are and what You've done 

that draws my soul to You.


O my God, when I was lost in sin, 

when I was Your great enemy; 

You came to me and saved my soul 

and now I am Your friend. 

Your great love is more than I can comprehend 

this side of heav'n; 

For all You are and all You've done, 

my soul is drawn to You.


O my God, I'll gladly bear my cross 

and live for You throughout my days; 

No less You've done for me, I know, 

and still You love me so! 

Let me show to others all around 

how much You mean to me; 

For all You are and all You've done, 

Lord, draw us all to You.







FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS 


For such a time as this, Lord, You've come

to bring salvation to ev'ryone.

With You beside us, Lord, we have no fear;

for such a time as this, Lord, You're here.


For such a time as this, our burdens bear,

and hold us close to You, Your comfort share.

When storms assail us, Lord, and foes increase;

for such a time as this, be our Peace.


For such a time as this, light our way,

and show us how to live, this we pray.

When life o'ertakes us, Lord, in you we'll hide;

for such a time as this, be our Guide.


For such a time as his, help us show

Your love to ev'ryone; let them know

their hurts and pain You'll heal, their sin forgive;

for such a time as this, may we live.


For such a time as this, Lord, You've come

to bring salvation to ev'ryone.

With You beside us, Lord, we have no fear;

for such a time as this, Lord, You're here.





     LORD, WE HAVE COME TO WORSHIP YOU


Lord, we have come to worship You.

For You alone are worthy of our praise.

Come fill us now with Your Presence, Lord;

May all we do bring honor to You.

May all we do bring all honor to You.





MAY GOD'S NATURE BE MINE


Turn the fall stream of nature's tide;

let all our actions tend

to Thee, their Source; Thy love the guide,

Thy glory be the end.


Chorus:


Heaveny Adam, life divine,

change my nature into Thine;

move and spread throughout my soul,

actuate and fill the whole.


Earth then a scale to heav'n shall be;

sense shall point out the road;

the creatures all shall lead to Thee,

and all we taste be God.

(Chorus)


Lord,arm me with Thy Spirit's might,

since I am call'd by Thy great name:

in Thee my wand'ring thoughts unite,

of all my works be Thou the aim; 

Thy love attend me all my days,

and my sole business be Thy praise

(Chorus)


Eager for Thee I ask and pant,

so strong the principle divine,

carries me out with sweet constraint,

till all my hallow'd soul be Thine;

Plunged in the Godhead's deepest sea,

and lost in Thine immensity!

(Chorus)




O GOD, OUR LIGHT


O God, our light, shine on us today,

Thy Word, O Lord, may we all obey.

O God, of pow'r, brighten now our way,

Thy Word of Truth be our guide today.


Today, O Lord, as we seek to live,

May we serve others and freely give.

O God, may we be quick to forgive,

and help us, Lord, by Thy light to live.


O God, may we bless others today,

and help us, Lord, to show them the way.

To share with them Thy light from above,

so they may know Thy Truth and love.


O God, our Lord, unite us with Thee,

that Thou alone may the world see.

And fill us, Lord, with Thee all our days,

for Thou alone are worthy of praise.


Amen.





O LORD DESCEND


O Lord, descend upon my heart 

and fill my soul with You this hour;

impart unto me Your Truth, O Lord,

and make me to know

Your love and Your pow'r.





SOVEREIGN LORD


Sov'reign Lord, it's You alone I seek to know and love, 

for there is no one else I know who cares for me like You.

No matter what I face in life, I'm always mindful of

the way You're always there for me, so tender and so true.


Oftentimes I do not understand why things go wrong;

why people suffer pain and loss, why sorrow seems their fate.

I, too, have known such deep despair, and agony so long,

and depths of shame, remorse, regret; my failures are so great.


Yet there You are, You never leave me when I've gone astray;

You're always ready to forgive, to comfort and restore.

Through tears and fears that I will face, I only have to pray,

and You will hear and answer me; may I but listen more.


I can trust Your sov'reignty whatever comes my way,

for true to Your great promises, You've always faithful ben.

Your sov'reignty led You to die to bring me peace that day;

so faithfully I'll bear my cross each day for You till Heav'n.


Sov'reign Lord, I thank You for the warmth of Your embrace,

for saving me, redeeming me and drawing near to me.

Help me to love with Your great love, to emulate Your grace

to others all around me so they, too, might be set free.





YOUR PURE LOVE ALONE 


Is there a thing beneath the sun,

that strives with You my heart to share?

Ah! Tear it thence, and reign alone,

the Lord of every motion there!


Strange fires far from my heart remove;

my every act, word, thought, be love!


O grant that nothing in my soul

may dwell, but Your pure love alone!

O may Your love possess me whole,

My joy, my treasure, and my crown!


Strange fires far from my heart remove;

My every act, word, thought, be love!

and worship Him with gladness. 

Come to Him with our great songs of joy 

and know that He, the Lord, is God. 

He has made us, and we belong to Him. 

We are His people, the sheep of His flock. 

Give thanks and praise 

as you enter His gates with joy; 

Good is the Lord, and His love never ends.

With thanksgiving, Lord, we come

to lift our hearts to You in praise;

for all the wondrous things You've done,

our voices now to You we raise!

Alleluia! Alleluia!

You're our Savior, Lord and King!

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Your praise we'll forever sing!


All around us Lord, we see

Your love and grace and mercy free;

All Your creation joyfully

reflects Your pow'r and majesty!

Sov'reign God, before Your throne,

we humbly bow and bless Your name;

for in Your presence, Lord, alone

Your endless blessings we proclaim!

(Refrain)
