Isaiah 9:2-8: The race that long in darkness pined

Meter: Appears in 209 hymnals Scripture: Isaiah 9:2-8 First Line: The race that long in darkness pined Lyrics: The race that long in darkness pined, have seen a glorious light; The people dwell in day, who dwelt in death’s surrounding night. To hail thy rise, thou better Sun! the gath’ring nations came, Joyous, as when the reapers bear the harvest treasures home. For thou our burden hast remov’d, and quelled th’ oppressor’s sway, Quick as the slaughtered squadrons fell in Midian’s evil day. To us a Child of hope is barn; to us a Son is giv’n; Him shall the tribes of earth obey, him all the hosts of heav’n. His name shall be the Prince of Peace, for evermore adored, The Wonderful, the Counsellor, the great and mighty Lord. His pow’r increasing still shall spread, his reign no end shall know; Justice shall guard his throne above, and peace abound below.

It Came upon the Midnight Clear

Author: Edmund H. Sears, 1810-76 Meter: D Appears in 834 hymnals Scripture: Isaiah 9:4-5 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, goodwill to all, From heav'n'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 heav'nly music floats O'er all the weary world. Above its sad and lowly plains They bend on hov'ring wing, And ever o'er its babel sounds The blessed angels sing. 3 All you, beneath your heavy load, By care and guilt bent low, Who toil along a dreary way With painful steps and slow: Look up, for golden is the hour, Come swiftly on the wing, The Prince was born to bring you peace; Of Him the angels sing. 4 For lo, the days have come to pass By prophets seen of old, When down into the circling years Came Christ as was foretold. His word of peace shall to the earth God's ancient promise bring, And all who take this gift will hear The song the angels sing. Topics: Society Used With Tune: CAROL

Where hate and fear divide us and bitter threats are hurled, in love and mercy guide us, and heal our strife-torn world. 2 From search for wealth and power and scorn of truth and right, from trust in bombs that shower destruction through the night, from pride of race and nation and blindness to your way, deliver every nation, eternal God, we pray! 3 Lord, strengthen all who labor that we may find release from fear of rattling saber, from dread of war's increase. When hope and courage falter, Lord, let your voice be heard; with faith that none can alter, your servants undergird. 4 Keep bright in us the vision of days when war shall cease, when hatred and division give way to love and peace, till dawns the morning glorious when truth and justice reign, and Christ shall rule victorious o'er all the world's domain.

His glories now we sing who died and rose on high, who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die. 3 Crown him the Lord of peace, whose power a sceptre sways from pole to pole, that wars may cease, absorbed in prayer and praise. His reign shall know no end; and round his pierced feet fair flowers of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet. 4 Crown him the Lord of love; behold his hands and side, rich wounds yet visible above in beauty glorified. All hail, Redeemer, hail! for thou hast died for me; thy praise shall never, never fail throughout eternity.
