All Hail! Happy Day

Author: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788 Meter: 11.9.11.9 Appears in 48 hymnals Lyrics: 1 All hail! happy day, When enrobed in our clay, The Redeemer appeared upon earth: How can we refrain For to join the glad strain, And to hail our Immanuel’s birth? 2 How boundless that love, First begotten above, And through Jesus to sinners made known? Lift, lift up the voice, And exulting rejoice, For Jehovah to earth is come down. 3 Ye angels of God, Sound His praises abroad, And acknowledge Him Jah, the I Am: We also will join In a hymn so divine, Giving glory to God and the Lamb. 4 To Christ we will sing, As our high priest and king, And our prophet to teach us the road: But more than all this, For almighty He is, And we own Him our crucified God! 5 To Jesus’ praise Let us spend all our days, For ’tis He our surety has stood: He sojourned below, That His mercy might flow, And He purchased our pardon with blood! 6 O may the return Of this once blessèd morn, Be for ever remembered with joy Sweet accents of praise, All our voices shall raise, Hallelujahs shall be our employ. 7 Let echo prolong, The harmonious song, Hallelujahs again and again: He kindles the fire, Whom the nations desire; And to Him we devote the glad strain. 8 Blest Jesus, while we Pay our tribute to Thee, Let us worship, admire, and adore, Accept as Thy crown, What before was Thy own, Hallelujahs and praise evermore.

Communauté de Taizé

Person Name: Community of Taizé Meter: 11.9.11.9 Author of "With You, O Lord" in Worship and Song

Jacques Berthier

1923 - 1994 Meter: 11.9.11.9 Composer of "WITH YOU" in Worship and Song Jacques Berthier (b. Auxerre, Burgundy, June 27, 1923; d. June 27, 1994) A son of musical parents, Berthier studied music at the Ecole Cesar Franck in Paris. From 1961 until his death he served as organist at St. Ignace Church, Paris. Although his published works include numerous compositions for organ, voice, and instruments, Berthier is best known as the composer of service music for the Taizé community near Cluny, Burgundy. Influenced by the French liturgist and church musician Joseph Gelineau, Berthier began writing songs for equal voices in 1955 for the services of the then nascent community of twenty brothers at Taizé. As the Taizé community grew, Berthier continued to compose most of the mini-hymns, canons, and various associated instrumental arrangements, which are now universally known as the Taizé repertoire. In the past two decades this repertoire has become widely used in North American church music in both Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. Bert Polman
