    Musical Interludes

    To the tune Carey (Surrey) composed by Henry Carey.

    From Psalm 45

    1 MY heart is full of Christ, and longs
    Its glorious matter to declare!
    Of him I make my loftier song,
    I cannot from his praise forbear;
    My ready tongue makes haste to sing
    The glories of my heavenly King.

    2 Fairer than all the earth-born race,
    Perfect in comeliness thou art;
    Replenished are thy lips with grace,
    And full of love thy tender heart:
    God ever blest! we bow the knee,
    And own all fulness dwells in thee.

    3 Gird on thy thigh the Spirit's sword,
    And take to thee thy power divine;
    Stir up thy strength, almighty Lord,
    All power and majesty are thine:
    Assert thy worship and renown;
    O all-redeeming God, come down!

    4 Come, and maintain thy righteous cause,
    And let thy glorious toil succeed;
    Dispread the victory of thy cross,
    Ride on, and prosper in thy deed;
    Through earth triumphantly ride on,
    And reign in every heart alone.


    Words by Charles Wesley



    William Carey (1761 - 1834) - the founder of modern missions - was a gifted linguist. Read his thumbnail biography in wikipedia here.

    Tune - Manoah - composed by Gioacchino A. Rossini, arranged by Franz Joseph Haydn


    How beautiful the mystery:
    Thíeternal Word comes down
    To live and love and die and rise,
    To claim His victorís crown.

    Content we find Him cradled there
    Amongst the filth and beasts.
    Who would believe that He will be
    Our guide from death to peace!

    By angry swords and dark decree
    Heís driven from His land.
    But still He humbly bows His head
    To trust His Fatherís hand.

    The spotless Lamb lays down His life,
    A curse upon a cross.
    Then lives that He might guarantee
    That no sheep will be lost.

    O! May our hearts grow ever fond
    Of Maryís precious boy:
    Our Christ, our hope, our heartís desire,
    Our King and Sovíreign Joy!

    Tune - Slane - Ancient Irish Traditional Melody



    Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
    Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art--
    Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
    Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

    Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true word;
    I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
    Thou my great Father, I thy true Son;
    Thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

    Be Thou my battle-shield, sword for the fight;
    Be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight,
    Thou my soul's shelter, Thou my high tow'r;
    Raise Thou me heav'n-ward, O Pow'r of my pow'r.

    Riches I heed not, nor manís empty praise,
    Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
    Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
    High King of Heaven, my treasure Thou art.

    High King of heaven, after victory won,
    May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'n's Sun!
    Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
    Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

    Tune - Diademata - George Job Elvey (1816 - 1893)




    SPIRIT of faith, come down,
    Reveal the things of God;
    And make to us the Godhead known,
    And witness with the blood:
    'Tis thine the blood to apply,
    And give us eyes to see,
    Who did for every sinner die,
    Hath surely died for me.

    No man can truly say
    That Jesus is the Lord,
    Unless thou take the veil away,
    And breathe the living word;
    Then, only then, we feel
    Our interest in his blood,
    And cry, with joy unspeakable,
    "Thou art my Lord, my God!"

    O that the world might know
    The all-atoning Lamb!
    Spirit of faith, descend, and show
    The virtue of his name;
    The grace which all may find,
    The saving power impart;
    And testify to all mankind,
    And speak in every heart.

    Inspire the living faith,
    Which whosoe'er receives,
    The witness in himself he hath,
    And consciously believes;
    The faith that conquers all,
    And doth the mountain move,
    And saves whoe'er on Jesus call,
    And perfects them in love.

    Tune - Horsley - by William Horsley (1774 - 1858)



    There is a green hill far away,
    without a city wall,
    where the dear Lord was crucified
    who died to save us all.


    We may not know, we cannot tell,
    what pains he had to bear,
    but we believe it was for us
    he hung and suffered there.


    He died that we might be forgiven,
    he died to make us good,
    that we might go at last to heaven,
    saved by his precious blood.


    There was no other good enough
    to pay the price of sin,
    he only could unlock the gate
    of heaven, and let us in.


    Oh, dearly, dearly has he loved,
    and we must love him too,
    and trust in his redeeming blood,
    and try his works to do.




    Words by Mrs Cecil Frances Alexander

    Knowing You



    All I once held dear
    Built my life upon
    All this world reveres
    And wants to own
    All I once thought gain
    I have counted loss
    Spent and worthless now
    Compared to this

    Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
    There is no greater thing
    You're my all, You're the best
    You're my joy, my righteousness
    And I love You Lord

    Now my heart's desire
    Is to know You more,
    To be found in You
    And known as Yours,
    To possess by faith
    What I could not earn,
    All surpassing gift
    Of righteousness

    Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
    There is no greater thing
    You're my all, You're the best
    You're my joy, my righteousness
    And I love You Lord

    Oh to know the power
    Of Your risen life
    And to know You in
    Your sufferings
    To become like You
    In Your death, my Lord,
    So with You to live
    And never die

    Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
    There is no greater thing
    You're my all, You're the best
    You're my joy, my righteousness
    And I love You Lord

    Knowing You Jesus, knowing You
    There is no greater thing
    You're my all, You're the best
    You're my joy, my righteousness
    You're my all, You're the best
    You're my joy, my righteousness
    And I love You Lord

    Here is a fancy old setting from the Praise and Glory West Gallery Music Association website, for Carlisle, by Charles Lockhart 1745 - 1815



    Rise up, O men of God!
    Have done with lesser things,
    give heart and soul and mind and strength
    to serve the King of kings.

    Rise up, O men of God!
    His kingdom tarries long:
    bring in the day of brotherhood
    and end the night of wrong.

    Rise up, O men of God!
    The Church for you doth wait;
    her strength unequal to her task;
    rise up, and make her great!

    Lift high the cross of Christ!
    Tread where his feet have trod;
    as brothers of the Son of Man,
    rise up, O men of God!



    Words by William Pierson Merrill, 1909


    All the flourishes between verses used to be the norm, just like today they're back in vogue.

    Comforter by William J. Kirkpatrick (1838 Ė 1921)


    O spread the tidings íround, wherever man is found,
    Wherever human hearts and human woes abound;
    Let evíry Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound:
    The Comforter has come!

    Refrain

    The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come!
    The Holy Ghost from Heavín, the Fatherís promise givín;
    O spread the tidings íround, wherever man is foundó
    The Comforter has come!


    The long, long night is past, the morning breaks at last,
    And hushed the dreadful wail and fury of the blast,
    As oíer the golden hills the day advances fast!
    The Comforter has come!

    Refrain

    Lo, the great King of kings, with healing in His wings,
    To evíry captive soul a full deliverance brings;
    And through the vacant cells the song of triumph rings;
    The Comforter has come!

    Refrain

    O boundless love divine! How shall this tongue of mine
    To wondíring mortals tell the matchless grace divineó
    That I, a child of hell, should in His image shine!
    The Comforter has come!

    Refrain

    Sing till the echoes fly above the vaulted sky,
    And all the saints above to all below reply,
    In strains of endless love, the song that neíer will die:
    The Comforter has come!



    Words by Frank Bottome (1823-1894)

    Author of tune: Unknown



    Praise, praise ye the name of Jehovah our God;
    Declare, oh, declare ye His glories abroad;
    Proclaim ye His mercy, from nation to nation,
    Till the uttermost islands have heard His salvation.

    For His love floweth on, free and full as a river;
    And His mercy endureth forever and ever.


    Praise, praise ye the Lamb, who for sinners was slain;
    Went down to the grave, and ascended again;
    And who soon shall return, when these dark days are oíer,
    To set up His kingdom, in glory and power.

    Then heaven and earth, and the sea shall rejoice;
    The field and the forest shall lift their glad voice;
    The sands in the desert shall flourish in green,
    And Lebanonís glory be shed oíer the scene.

    Her bridal attire, and her festal array,
    All nature shall wear on that glorious day;
    For her King cometh down with His people to reign,
    And His presence shall bless her with Eden again.

    Lyrics

    1. How lovely on the mountains
    are the feet of him who brings good news,
    good news; announcing peace,
    proclaiming news of happiness:
    our God reigns, our God reigns!

    Refrain
    Our God reigns, our God reigns,
    our God reigns, our God reigns!

    2. He had no stately form,
    he had no majesty that we should be drawn to him.
    He was despised
    and we took no account of him,
    yet now he reigns with the Most High!

    3. It was our sin and guilt that bruised and wounded him;
    it was our sin that brought him down.
    When we like sheep had gone astray,
    our shepherd came and on his shoulders bore our shame!

    4. Meek as a lamb thatís led out to the slaughterhouse,
    still as a sheep before its shearer,
    his life ran down upon the ground like pouring rain
    that we might be born again!

    5. Out of the tomb he came with grace and majesty;
    he is alive, he is alive!
    God loves us so:
    see here his hands, his feet, his side;
    yes, we know he is alive!



    Words and music by Leonard Smith in 1974
