We Come to You for Healing, Lord   2 comments

Hymn Source = Evangelical Lutheran Worship (2006), of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

Words (in 2002) by the Reverend Herman G. Stuempfle, Jr. (1923-2007), a minister of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and President of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (1976-1989)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  We come to you for healing, Lord,

of body, mind, and soul,

and pray that by, your Spirit’s touch,

we may again be whole.

2.  As once you walked through ancient streets

and reached toward those in pain,

come, risen Christ, among us still

with power to heal again.

3.  You touch us through physicians’ skills,

through nurses’ gifts of care,

and through the love of faithful friends

who lift our lives in prayer.

4.  When nights are long with wakefulness,

through days when strength runs low,

grant us your gift of patience, Lord,

your calming peace to know.

5.  We come to you, O loving Lord,

in our distress and pain,

in trust that through our nights and days

your grace will heal, sustain.

Original Words in Latin; English translation by Henry Williams Baker (1821-1877), a priest of The Church of England, editor of Hymns Ancient and Modern, and author of many hymns

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  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.

2.  On this day the eternal Son

over death his triumph won;

on this day the Spirit came

with his gifts of living flame.

3.  Father, who didst fashion me

image of thyself to be,

fill me with thy love divine,

let my every thought be thine.

4.  Holy Jesus, may I be

dead and buried here with thee;

and, by love inflamed, arise

unto thee a sacrifice.

5.  Thou, who dost all gifts impart,

shine, sweet Spirit, in my heart;

best of gifts thyself bestow;

make me burn thy love to know.

6.  God, the blessed three in one,

dwell within my heart alone;

thou dost give thyself to me:

may I give myself to thee.

Thine Is the Glory   6 comments

Celtic Cross Over a Doorway

Hymn Source = The Hymnbook (1955), a multi-denominational U.S. Presbyterian-Dutch Reformed hymnal

Words by the Rev. Edmond Budry (1854-1932), a Swiss Reformed pastor, in 1884; Translated into English by R. Birch Hoyle, 1923

The alternate name for the hymn is “Thine Be the Glory.”

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.

Angels in bright raiment

Rolled the stone away,

Kept the folded graceclothes

Where Thy body lay.

Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.

2.  Lo! Jesus meets us

Risen from the tomb;

Lovingly He greets us,

Scatters fear and gloom;

Let His Church with gladness

Hymns of triumph sing,

For her Lord now liveth;

Death hath lost its sting.

Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.

3.  No more we doubt Thee,

Glorious Prince of Life!

Life is nought without Thee;

Aid us in our strife;

Make us more than conquerors,

Through Thy deathless love;

Bring us safe through Jordan

To Thy home above.

Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.

Words by John M. C. Crum (1872-1958), a priest of The Church of England

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,

wheat that in dark earth many days has lain;

love lives again, that with the dead has been;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

2.  In the grave they laid the love by hatred slain,

thinking that Jesus would not wake again,

laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

3.  Christ came forth at Easter, like the risen grain,

who that for three days in the grave had lain;

raised from the dead, the risen Christ is seen;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

4.  When our hearts are wintry, grieving, or in pain,

your touch can call us back to life again,

fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

Hymn Source = The Hymnal 1982, of The Episcopal Church

Words by Charles Wesley (1707-1788), a priest of The Church of England

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Come away to the skies,

my beloved, arise

and rejoice in the day thou wast born;

on this festival day,

come exulting away,

and with singing to Zion return.

2.  Now with singing and praise,

let us spend all the days,

by our heavenly Father bestowed,

while his grace we receive

from his bounty, and live

to the honor and glory of God.

3.  For the glory we were

first created to share,

both the nature

and kingdom divine!

Now created again

that our lives may remain,

throughout time and eternity thine.

4.  We with thanks do approve

the design of that love

which hath joined us to Jesus’ Name;

so united in heart,

let us nevermore part,

till we meet at the feast of the Lamb.

5.  Hallelujah we sing,

to our Father and King,

and his rapturous praises, repeat:

to the Lamb that was slain,

hallulujah again,

sing, all heaven, and fall at his feet.

The victory of life is won;

The song of triumph has begun.

Alleluia!

But Christ their legions hath dispersed:

Let shout of holy joy outburst.

Alleluia!

He rises glorious from the dead:

All glory to our risen Head!

Alleluia!

The bars from heavens high portals fell;

Let hymns of praise his triumphs tell!

Alleluia!

5.  Lord! by the stripes which wounded thee,

From death’s dread sting thy servants free,

That we may live and sing to thee.
