Thine be the glory

Thine be 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 grave-clothes where thy body lay. Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son, endless is the victory thou o’er death hast won. Lo! Jesus…

There is a green hill

There is a green hill far away outside a city wall, where our dear Lord was crucified, who died to save us all. We may not know, we cannot tell what pains he had to bear, but we believe it was for us he hung and suffered there. He died…

The head that once was crowned with thorns

The head that once was crowned with thorns is crowned with glory now; a royal diadem adorns the mighty Victor’s brow. The highest place that Heaven affords is his, is his by right, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, and Heaven’s eternal Light. The joy of all who…

My song is love unknown

My song is love unknown, my Saviour’s love to me; love to the loveless shown that they might lovely be: O who am I, that for my sake, my Lord should take frail flesh and die? He came from Heaven’s throne salvation to bestow; but men refused, and none the…

Hail thou once despised Jesus

Hail, thou once despisèd Jesus! Hail, thou Galilean King! Thou didst suffer to release us; thou didst free salvation bring. Hail, thou agonising Saviour, bearer of our sin and shame! By thy merits we find favour; life is given through thy name. Paschal Lamb, by God appointed, all our sins…

Come ye sinners

Christ the Lord is risen today

‘Christ the Lord is risen today!’ Alleluia! All creation joins to say: Alleluia! raise your joy and triumph high; Alleluia! sing now Heaven, and Earth reply: Alleluia!   Love’s redeeming work is done, fought the fight, the battle won: vain the stone, the watch, the seal; Christ has burst the…

Beneath the cross of Jesus

Beneath the cross of Jesus I gladly take my stand; the shadow of a mighty rock within a weary land; a home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way, from the burning of the noontide heat, and the burden of the day. There lies, beneath its shadow, but on…

And can it be

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…

You’re the word of God the Father

You’re the Word of God the Father from before the world began; every star and every planet has been fashioned by your hand. All creation holds together by the power of your voice. Let the skies declare your glory, let the land and seas rejoice! You’re the Author of creation,…

Love incarnate

With a prayer you fed the hungry, with a cry you stilled the storm. With a look you had compassion on the desperate and forlorn. With a touch you healed the leper. With a shout You raised the dead. With a word expelled the demons. With a blessing broke the…

We’re not alone

We’re not alone, for Christ is here. Immanuel our God come near. We’re not alone, for to our world Jesus has come, eternal Word. And as he speaks, our souls laid bare. Naked, ashamed, sin is made clear. And yet he clothes us in his love. Never alone, Christ is…
