William Thomas Best

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You

(VU 232)

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before you,
Opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!

All Your works with joy surround you,
Earth and heaven reflect Your rays,
Stars and angels sing around You,
Center of unbroken praise;
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
Praising You eternally!

Always giving and forgiving,
Ever blessing, ever blest,
Well-spring of the joy of living,
Ocean-depth of happy rest!
Loving Father, Christ our Brother,
Let Your light upon us shine;
Teach us how to love each other,
Lift us to the joy divine.

Mortals, join the mighty chorus,
Which the morning stars began;
God's own love is reigning o'er us,
Joining people hand in hand.
Ever singing, march we onward,
Victors in the midst of strife;
Joyful music leads us sunward
In the triumph song of life.

The Lord's My Shepherd

(VU (psalter section) 747)

The Lord's my shepherd,
I'll not want.
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green;
He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul he doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
Even for his own name's sake.

Yea, though I walk
In death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear none ill,
For thou art with me and thy rod
And staff me comfort still.

My table thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes.
My head thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me,
And in God's house forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.

Ave Maria von Arcadelt

("The Bells of Rome")

by Liszt

Franz Liszt
(1811 - 1886)

Nearer, My God, to Thee
(VU 497)

Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be --

Refrain: Nearer, my God, to thee;
Nearer, my God, to thee,
nearer to thee!

Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
my rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I'd be --


There let the way appear,
Steps unto heaven;
all that thou sendest me,
in mercy given;
angels to beckon me --


Yield Not to Temptation

Yeld not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
Each vict'ry will help you some other to win;
Fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus, He'll carry you through.

Ask the Saviour to help you, comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you, He will carry you through.

To him that o'er-cometh, God giveth a crown;
Through faith we will conquer, though often cast down;
He who is our Saviour, our strength will renew;
Look ever to Jesus, He'll carry you through.

Ask the Saviour to help you, comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you, He will carry you through.
