Her Baby, Newly Breathing

Author: Brian Wren Meter: D Appears in 2 hymnals Hymnal Title: Chalice Hymnal 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.

We Wait the Peaceful Kingdom

Author: Kathleen R. Moore Meter: D Appears in 1 hymnal Hymnal Title: Glory to God Lyrics: 1 We wait the peaceful kingdom, when wolf and lamb shall lie in gentleness and friendship without a fear or sigh, when lion shall be grazing, when snake shall never strike; a little child shall lead us both strong and weak alike. 2 Where is the peaceful kingdom? When will this new day start? We long for peace and comfort to reign within each heart. Yet not in our lives only, nor simply in our home: we pray that all creation will one day find shalom. 3 When wars of desolation and hate come to an end, when nation meets with nation and calls the other "friend," still peace in all its fullness will only have begun: shalom for all creation begins with justice done. 4 That little child shall lead us to walk the chosen way, to share the peaceful kingdom, to greet God's newborn day. The child born in a stable is sent to break our chains, to bring through word and table the day when justice reigns.

When Jesus Came to Jordan (Cuando al Jordán fue Cristo)

Author: Fred Pratt Green, 1903-2000; Alberto Merubia, 1919-2013 Meter: D Appears in 21 hymnals Hymnal Title: Santo, Santo, Santo Lyrics: 1 When Jesus came to Jordan To be baptized by John, He did not come for pardon, But as the sinless One. He came to share repentance With all who mourn their sins, To speak the vital sentence With which good news begins. 2 He came to share temptation, Our utmost woe and loss, For us and our salvation To die upon the cross. So when the Dove descended On him, the Son of Man, The hidden years had ended, The age of grace began. 3 Come, Holy Spirit, aid us To keep the vows we make; This very day invade us, And ev'ry bondage break. Come, give our lives direction, The gift we covet most: To share the resurrection That leads to Pentecost. --- 1 Cuando al Jordán fue Cristo y Juan le bautizó, no fue perdón pidiendo, pues él jamás pecó. Con los arrepentidos se identificó; les trajo buenas nuevas, y el reino se inició. 2 Él vino a ser tentado, que es nestra condición; sobre una cruz clavado nos trajo salvación. Y cuando la Paloma del cielo descendió, ocultos años cesan, la gracia comenzó. 3 Ayúdanos los votos que hacemos a cumplir. Los yogos que tenemos, oh ven tú a destruir. ¡Desciende y danos vida, que nuestro anhelo es, tras la Resurrección disfrutar Pentecostés!

Psalm 84: How Lovely, Lord, How Lovely

Author: Arlo D. Duba, b. 1929 Meter: Appears in 18 hymnals Hymnal Title: Sing! A New Creation 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. Topics: Faith Scripture: Psalm 84 Used With Tune: MERLE'S TUNE

I Sought the Wood in Summer

Author: Willa Cather, 1893-1947 Meter: D Appears in 1 hymnal Hymnal Title: Singing the Living Tradition 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 Used With Tune: MERLE'S TUNE
