The Day Thou Gavest

Author: John Ellerton Meter: Appears in 259 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 1:8 First Line: The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended Lyrics: 1 The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended, the darkness falls at thy behest; to thee our morning hymns ascended, thy praise shall sanctify our rest. 2 We thank thee that thy Church unsleeping while earth rolls onward into light, thro' all the world her watch is keeping, and rests not now by day or night. 3 As o’er each continent and island the dawn leads on another day, the voice of prayer is never silent, nor dies the strain of praise away. 4 The sun, that bids us rest, is waking your children 'neath the western sky, and hour by hour fresh lips are making thy wondrous doings heard on high. 5 So be it, Lord! thy throne shall never, like earth’s proud empires, pass away; thy kingdom stands, and grows forever, till all thy creatures own thy sway.

He commanded, it was done: heaven and earth and depths of ocean, in their threefold order one; all that grows beneath the shining, of the moon and burning sun, evermore and evermore. 3 O that birth for ever blessed, when the virgin, full of grace, by the Holy Ghost conceiving, bare the Saviour of our race, and the babe, the world's redeemer, first revealed his sacred face, evermore and evermore. 4 This is he whom seers in old time chanted of with one accord, whom the voices of the prophets promised in their faithful word; now he shines, the long-expected; let creation praise its Lord, evermore and evermore. 5 O ye heights of heaven adore him; angel hosts, his praises sing; all dominions bow before him, and extol our God and king; let no tongue on earth be silent, every voice in concert ring, evermore and evermore. 6 Christ, to thee, with God the Father, and, O Holy Ghost, to thee, hymn and chant and high thanksgiving, and unwearied praises be, honour, glory, and dominion, and eternal victory, evermore and evermore.

Hark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices

See, He sits on yonder throne; Jesus rules the world alone. 2 Come, ye saints, unite your praises With the angels round His throne; Soon, we hope, our God will raise us To the place where He is gone. Meet it is that we should sing, "Glory, glory, to our King!" 3 Sing how Jesus came from heaven, How He bore the cross below, How all pow'r to Him is given, How He reigns in glory now; ’Tis a great and endless theme, Oh, ’tis sweet to sing of Him! 4 Jesus, hail! Thy glory brightens All above and gives it worth; Lord of Life, Thy smile enlightens, Cheers, and charms Thy saints on earth. When we think of love like Thine, Lord, we own it love divine. 5 King of Glory, reign forever; Thine an everlasting crown. Nothing from Thy love shall sever Those whom Thou hast made Thine own, Happy objects of Thy grace, Destined to behold Thy face. 6 Savior, hasten Thine appearing; Bring, oh, bring the glorious day When, the awe-full summons hearing, Heaven and earth shall pass away; Then with golden harps we'll sing, "Glory, glory, to our King!" Amen. Topics: The Church Year Ascension Used With Tune: NEANDER

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

Author: Edmund Hamilton Sears Meter: D Appears in 834 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 1:6 Lyrics: 1 It came upon the midnight clear, that glorious song of old, from angels bending near the earth, to touch their harps of gold: “Peace on the earth, good will to all, from heaven’s all-gracious King”: the world in solemn stillness lay, to hear the angels sing. 2 Still through the cloven skies they come, with peaceful wings unfurled, and still their heavenly music floats o’er all the weary world: above its sad and lowly plains they bend on hovering wing, and ever o’er its Babel sounds the blessed angels sing. 3 Yet with the woes of sin and strife the world has suffered long; beneath the heavenly hymn have rolled two thousand years of wrong; and we at war on earth hear not the tidings that they bring; O, hush the noise and cease the strife to hear the angels sing! 4 And you, beneath life’s crushing load, whose forms are bending low, who toil along the climbing way with painful steps and slow, look now, for glad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing: O, rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing. 5 For lo, the days are hastening on, by prophets seen of old, when with the ever-circling years shall come the time foretold, when peace shall over all the earth its ancient splendors fling, and the whole world give back the song which now the angels sing.
