TWENTY-SEVENTH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME

SONG: LET US WITH A GLADSOME MIND

Artist: Wakefield Cathedral Choir
Words/Music: Milton/Antes adapted Wilkes
Recording: PRIORY PRCD 711

Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind:
for his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us blaze his name abroad,
for of gods he is the God:
for his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

He with all commanding might
filled the new-made world with light:
for his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

He the golden-tressèd sun
caused all day his course to run:
for his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

And the hornèd moon by night,
mid her spangled sisters bright:
for his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

All things living he doth feed,
his full hand supplies their need:
for his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind:
for his mercies aye endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

SONG: YE SERVANTS OF GOD

Artist: Choir of Methodist Central Hall, Westminster
Words/Music: C Wesley/Parry
Recording: Abbey 280828

Ye servants of god, your master proclaim,
and publish abroad his wonderful name;
the name all victorious of Jesus extol,
his kingdom is glorious and rules over all.

God ruleth on high, almighty to save,
and still he is nigh, his presence we have;
the great congregation his triumph shall sing,
ascribing salvation to Jesus, our king.

“Salvation to God, who sits on the throne!"
let all cry aloud and honor the son;
the praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
fall down on their faces and worship the lamb.

Then let us adore and give him his right,
all glory and power, all wisdom and might;
all honour and blessing with angels above,
and thanks never ceasing and infinite love.

SONG: MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF YOUR PEACE

Artist: Choir of Westminster Abbey
Words/Music: Anon/Temple
Recording: Griffin 224018

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is hatred let me bring your love
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord
And where there is doubt true faith in you.

Oh, master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is despair in life let me bring hope
Where there is darkness only light
And where there's sadness ever joy

Oh, master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
In giving to all man that we receive
In dying that we are born to eternal life.

Oh, master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is hatred let me bring your love
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord
And where there is doubt true faith in you.

SONG: GIVE ME THE FAITH

Artist: St Michael’s Singers
Words/Music: C Wesley/Norton
Recording: Kingsway KMCD 583

Give me the faith which can remove
And sink a mountain to a plain;
Give me the childlike praying love,
Which longs to build Thy love again;
Thy love, let it my heart empower,
And all my simple soul devour.

I would the precious time redeem,
And longer live for this alone:
To spend and to be spent for them
Who have not yet my Savior known;
Fully on these my mission prove,
And only breathe, to breathe Thy love.

My talents, gifts, and graces, Lord,
Into Thy blessed hands receive;
And let me live to preach Thy Word,
And let me to Thy glory live;
My every sacred moment spend
In publishing the sinner’s Friend.

Enlarge, inflame, and fill my heart
With boundless charity divine,
So shall I all my strength exert,
And love them with a zeal like Thine,
And lead them to Thy open side,
The sheep for whom the Shepherd died.

SONG: THE CHURCH’S ONE FOUNDATION

Artist: Choir of Kings College Cambridge
Words/Music: Stone/S Wesley
Recording: Argo 414609

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.

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.

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.

Yet she on earth has 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.

SONG: COME THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING

Artist: Kansas City Choral
Words/Music: Robertson/Wyeth or Nettleton
Label: Nimbus NI 5568

Come Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
Mount of God's unchanging love.

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Hither by Thy help I'm come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be!
Let that grace now like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

SONG: O FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES

Artist: Wells Cathedral Choir
Words/Music: C Wesley/Philips
Label: HYPERION 112105

O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
that bids our sorrows cease,
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life and health and peace.

He speaks, and listening to his voice
new life the dead receive,
the mournful broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.

Hear Him, ye deaf, His praise, ye dumb
your loosened tongues employ,
ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
and leap ye lame for joy!

My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread thro' all the earth abroad
the honours of your name.

SONG: WHEN IN OUR MUSIC GOD IS GLORIFIED

Artist: Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Words/Music: Green/Stanford
Label: Bonneville 519602

When in our music God is glorified,
and adoration leaves no room for pride,
it is as though the whole creation cried:
Alleluia!

How often, making music, we have found
a new dimension in the world of sound,
as worship moved us to a more profound
Alleluia!

So has the church, in spoken word and song,
in faith and love, through centuries of wrong,
borne witness to the truth in every tongue:
Alleluia!

And did not Jesus sing a psalm that night
when utmost evil strove against the light?
Then let us sing, for whom he won the fight:
Alleluia!

Let every instrument be tuned for praise!
Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!
And may God give us faith to sing always:
Alleluia!
