Sing Praise to The Lord

Sing praise to the Lord! Praise Him in the height;
Rejoice in His Word, you angels of light.
You heavens, adore Him by Whom you were made,
And worship before Him in brightness arrayed.

Sing praise to the Lord! Praise Him on the earth
In tuneful accord, you saints of new birth.
Praise Him Who has brought you His grace from above;
Praise Him Who has taught you to sing of His love.

Sing praise to the Lord! All things that give sound,
Each jubilant chord, re-echo around.
Loud organs, His glory tell forth in deep tone,
And trumpets, the story of what He has done.

Sing praise to the Lord! Thanksgiving and song
To Him be outpoured all ages along!
For love in creation, for Heaven restored,
For grace of salvation, sing praise to the Lord!

We Love The Place, O God

We love the place, O God,
Wherein thine honour dwells;
The joy of thine abode
All other joy excels.

We love the house of prayer,
Wherein thy servants meet;
For thou, O Lord, art there
Thy chosen ones to greet.

We love the sacred font,
Wherein the holy Dove
Bestows, as ever wont,
His blessing from above.

We love thine altar, Lord,
Its mysteries revere;
For there, in faith adored,
We find thy presence near.

We love thy holy word,
The lamp thou gav'st to guide
All wanderers home, O Lord,
Home to their Father's side.

Then let us sing the love
To us so freely given,
Until we sing above
The triumph song of heaven!

Henry Williams Baker

O God of Love, True Source of Peace

O God of love, true source of peace,
Make wars throughout the world to cease;
The wrath of sinful hearts restrain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

Remember, Lord, your works of old,
The wonders that our forebears told;
Remember not our sin's deep stain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

Whom shall we trust but you, O God?
Where rest but on your faithful word?
None ever called on you in vain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

Where saints and angels dwell above,
All hearts are knit in holy love;
Oh bind us in that heavenly chain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again.
