Sundays after Epiphany 98
Draw thou near us;
2 Though circled by the hosts on high,
Upon his helpless creature;
Jesus, grant us,
3 Rejoice, ye heavens; thou earth, reply;
For this his incarnation.
Praise be given
Great David's greater Son!
His reign on earth begun!
To set the captive free;
And rule in equity.
2 He comes with succour speedy
To those who suffer wrong,
And bid the weak be strong;
Their darkness turn to light,
Were precious in his sight.
3 He shall come down like showers
Upon the fruitful earth,
Spring in his path to birth:
Shall peace, the herald, go;
From hill to valley flow.
4 Kings shall bow down before him,
And gold and incense bring;
His praise all people sing;
And daily vows ascend;
A kingdom without end.
5 O’er every foe victorious,
He on his throne shall rest;
All-blessing and all-blest:
His covenant remove;
James Montgomery, 1821
22.214.171.124 IGHT of those whose dreary dwelling,
Borders on the shades of death, Jesus, now thyself revealing,
Scatter every cloud beneath. 2 Still we wait for thine appearing;
Life and joy thy beams impart, Chasing all our doubts, and cheering
Every meek and contrite heart.
3 Show thy power in every nation,
O thou Prince of Peace and Love! Give the knowledge of salvation,
Fix our hearts on things above.
4 By thine all-sufficient merit,
Every burdened soul release;
Charles Wesley, 1744
C.M. JOY OY to the world! the Lord is come:
Let earth receive her King; Let every heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing.
2 Joy to the world! the Saviour reigns:
Let men their songs employ;
3 No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
Far as the curse is found.
4 He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove The glories of his righteousness, And wonders of his love.
Isaac Watts, 1719
C.M. VERY God of very God,
And very Light of Light, Whose feet this earth's dark valley trod,
That so it might be bright;
2 Our hopes are weak, our fears are strong,
Thick darkness blinds our eyes; Cold is the night; thy people long
That thou, their Sun, wouldst rise.
3 And even now, though dull and gray,
The east is brightening fast, And kindling to the perfect day,
That never shall be past.
4 O guide us till our path is done,
And we have reached the shore Where thou, our everlasting Sun,
Art shining evermore!
5 We wait in faith, and turn our face
To where the daylight springs, Till thou shalt come our gloom to chase, With healing in thy wings. Amen.
John Mason Neale, 1846
Eight 7's ! the Loud as
thunders roar, Or the fullness of the sea,
When it breaks upon the shore: "Hallelujah! for the Lord
God Omnipotent shall reign; Hallelujah!” let the word
Echo round the earth and main.
2 Hallelujah! hark! the sound,
From the depths unto the skies. Wakes above, beneath, around
All creation's harmonies; See Jehovah's banner furled, Sheathed his sword; he speaks; 'tis
done; And the kingdoms of this world
Are the kingdoms of his Son.
3 He shall reign from pole to pole
With illimitable sway;
Yonder heavens have passed away.
Man's last enemy shall fall: Hallelujah! Christ in God, God in Christ is All in All.
James Montgomery, 1818
