Her Baby, Newly Breathing

Author: Brian Wren Hymnal: Chalice Hymnal #158 (1995) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Lyrics: 1 Her baby, newly breathing, with wailing needful cry, by Mary kissed and cradled, is lulled in lullaby. Long months of hope and waiting, the thrill and fear of birth, are crowned with exultation, and God is on the earth. 2 The eyes that gaze at Mary have yet to name or trace the world of shape and color, or recognize a face; yet Holiness Eternal is perfectly expressed in hands that clutch unthinking, and lips that tug the breast. 3 The milk of life is flowing as Mary guides and feeds her wordless Word, embodied in infant joys and needs. Enormous, formless strivings, and yearnings deep and wide, be-cradled in communion, are fed and satisfied. 4 How mother-like the Wisdom that carried and gave birth to all things, seen and unseen, and nurtured infant earth: unstinting, unprotected, prepared for nail and thorn, constricted into maleness, and of a woman born.

Psalm 84: How Lovely, Lord, How Lovely

Author: Arlo D. Duba, b. 1929 Hymnal: Sing! A New Creation #184 (2002) Meter: 7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6 First Line: How lovely, Lord, how lovely is your abiding place Lyrics: 1 How lovely, Lord, how lovely is your abiding place; my soul is longing, fainting, to feast upon your grace. The sparrow finds a shelter, a place to build her nest, and so your temple calls us within its walls to rest. 2 In your blest courts to worship, O God, a single day is better than a thousand if I from you should stray. I’d rather keep the entrance and claim you as my Lord than revel in the riches the ways of sin afford. 3 A sun and shield forever are you, O Lord Most High; you shower us with blessings; no good will you deny. The saints, your grace receiving, from strength to strength shall go, and from their life shall rivers of blessing overflow.

Blessed Be the God of Israel

Author: Michael Perry Hymnal: The United Methodist Hymnal #209 (1989) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Lyrics: 1 Blessed be the God of Israel, who comes to set us free, who visits and redeems us, and grants us liberty. The prophets spoke of mercy, of freedom and release; God shall fulfill the promise to bring our people peace. 2 Now from the house of David a child of grace is given; a Savior comes among us to raise us up to heaven. Before him goes the herald, forerunner in the way, the prophet of salvation, the harbinger of day. 3 On prisoners of darkness the sun begins to rise, the dawning of forgiveness upon the sinner's eyes, to guide the feet of pilgrims along the paths of peace; O bless our God and Savior with songs that never cease!

I Sought the Wood in Summer

Author: Willa Cather, 1893-1947 Hymnal: Singing the Living Tradition #328 (1993) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Lyrics: 1 I sought the wood in summer when every twig was green; the rudest boughs were tender, and buds were pink between. Light-fingered aspens trembled in fitful sun and shade, and daffodils were golden in every starry glade. 2 “How frail a thing is Beauty,” I said, “when every breath she gives the vagrant summer but swifter woos her death. For this the star dust troubles, for this have ages rolled: to deck the wood for bridal and slay her with the cold.” 3 I sought the wood in winter when every leaf was dead; behind the wind-whipped branches the winter sun was red. The birches, white and slender, in breathless marble stood, the brook, a white immortal, slept silent in the wood. 4 “How sure a thing is Beauty,” I cried. “No bolt can slay, nor wave nor shock despoil her, nor ravishers dismay. The granite hills are slighter, the sea more like to fail, behind the rose the planet, the Law behind the veil.” Topics: Humanist Teachings Beauty, Truth, and Goodness; Seasons and Cycles; Summer; Winter Languages: English Tune Title: MERLE'S TUNE
