“For the beauty of the earth”

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies:

Gracious God, to you we raise this our sacrifice of praise.

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light:

Gracious God, to you we raise this our sacrifice of praise.

For the joy of ear and eye,
For the heart and mind’s delight,
For the mystic harmony
Linking sense to sound and sight:

Gracious God, to you we raise this our sacrifice of praise.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
Pleasures pure and undefiled:

Gracious God, to you we raise this our sacrifice of praise.

For each perfect gift and sign
Of your love so freely given,
Graces human and divine,
Flowers of earth and buds of heaven:

Gracious God, to you we raise this our sacrifice of praise.

Folliot Sandford Pierpoint (1835 – 1917)

“I stand amazed in the presence”`

I stand amazed in the presence,
of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean

How marvellous! How wonderful! 
and my song shall ever be,
How marvellous! How wonderful! 
is my Saviour’s love for me!

For me it was in the garden He prayed,
‘Not My will, but Thine’:
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat drops of blood for mine.

How marvellous! How wonderful! 
and my song shall ever be,
How marvellous! How wonderful! 
is my Saviour’s love for me!

In pity angels beheld Him,
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night.

How marvellous! How wonderful! 
and my song shall ever be, How marvellous!
How wonderful! 
is my Saviour’s love for me!

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.

How marvellous! How wonderful! 
and my song shall ever be, How marvellous!
How wonderful! 
is my Saviour’s love for me!

When with the ransomed in glory,
His face I at last shall see,
It will be my joy through the ages,
To sing of His love for me

How marvellous! How wonderful! 
and my song shall ever be,
How marvellous! How wonderful! 
is my Saviour’s love for me!

Charles H Gabriel (1858 – 1933)

Hymn: STF 345

“And can it be”

StF 345 (Apologies that the YouTube item does not end automatically. You may even have to press the replay option to start) Accreditation: Songs of Praise

And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Saviour’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, should’st die for me?

‘Tis mystery all: the 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 enquire no more.

He left his Father’s throne above –
So free, so 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!

Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light,
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed thee.

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 the eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ, my own.

Charles Wesley (1707-88)

Hymn: STF 663

“I the Lord of sea and sky”

StF 663 (Apologies that the YouTube item does not end automatically. You may even have to press the replay option to start) Accreditation: Chet Valley Churches

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save.
I, who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am,
Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my people’s pain.
I have wept for love of them.
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my words to them.
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord.
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will send the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them.
My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide,
‘Til their hearts are satisfied.
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord.
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

Daniel L Schutte (b. 1947)
