Hymn # 384: "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling" played by Marilyn Lee

 

Verse 1

 

Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heaven to

earth come down; fix in us thy humble dwelling;

all thy faithful mercies crown! Jesus, thou art

all compassion, pure unbounded love thou art, visit

us with thy salvation; enter every trembling heart.

Verse 2

Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit into every

troubled breast! Let us all in thee inherit;

let us find that second rest. Take away our

bent to sinning; Alpha and Omega be; end of

faith, as its beginning, set our hearts at liberty.

Verse 3

Come, Almighty to deliver, let us all thy

life receive; suddenly return and never,

never more thy temples leave. Thee we would be

always blessing, serve thee as thy hosts above, pray and

praise thee without ceasing, glory in thy perfect love.

Hymn # 89: "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" played by Marilyn Lee

 

Verse 1

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love;

hearts unfold like flowers before thee, opening to the sun  above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away.

Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!

Verse 2

All thy works with joy surround thee, earth and heaven reflect thy rays,

stars and angels sing around thee, center of unbroken praise.

Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowering meadow, flashing sea,

chanting bird and flowing fountain, call us to rejoice in thee.

Verse 3

Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing ever blest,

well spring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest!

Thou our Father, Christ our brother, all who live in love are thine;

teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine.
