Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

(H. van Dyke, L. van Beethoven)


Joyful, Joyful we adore Thee,

God of glory, Lord of Love;

Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,

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 Thy works with joy surround Thee,

Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,

Stars and angels sing around Thee,

Center of unbroken praise.

Field and forest, vale and mountain,

Flowery meadow, flashing sea,

Chanting bird and flowing fountain,

Call us to rejoice in Thee.


Thou art giving and forgiving,

Ever blessing, ever blest,

Wellspring of the joy of living,

Ocean depth of happy rest!

Thou our Father, Christ our brother

All who live in love are Thine;

Teach us how to love each other,

Lift us to the joy divine.


Mortals join the happy chorus

Which the morning stars began;

Father love is reigning o’er us,

Brother love binds man to man.

Ever singing, march we onward,

Victors in the midst of strife,

Joyful music leads us sunward

In the triumph song of life.

Lord, I Need You

(M. Maher)


Lord, I come, I confess

Bowing here I find my rest

Without You I fall apart

You’re the One that guides my heart



Lord, I need You, oh, I need You

Every hour I need You –

my one defense, my righteousness!

Oh God, how I need You


Where sin runs deep Your grace is more

Where grace is found is where You are

And where You are, Lord, I am free

Holiness is Christ in me




Teach my song to rise to You

When temptation comes my way

And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You

Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

Let All Things Now Living

(K. Davis/ trad. Welsh-Ash Grove)


Let all things now living

a song of thanksgiving

to God the Creator triumphantly raise

Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us, Who guideth us on to the end of our days.

His banners are o’er us,

His light goes before us-

a pillar of fire shining forth in the night- Till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished, As forward we travel from light into light


His law He enforces,

the stars in their courses,

the sun in his orbit, obediently shine.

The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains, the deeps of the ocean proclaim Him divine.

We too, should be voicing

our love and rejoicing;

with glad adoration a song let us raise

Till all things now living

unite in thanksgiving to God in the highest, hosanna and praise!

Holy Spirit, Living Breath of God

(K. Getty/Stuart Townend)


Holy Spirit, living Breath of God,

Breathe new life into my willing soul.

Bring the presence of the risen Lord

To renew my heart and make me whole.

Cause Your Word to come alive in me;

Give me faith for what I cannot see;

Give me passion for Your purity.

Holy Spirit, breathe new life in me.


Holy Spirit, come abide within;

May Your joy be seen in all I do—

Love enough to cover ev’ry sin

In each thought and deed and attitude,

Kindness to the greatest and the least,

Gentleness that sows the path of peace.

Turn my striving into works of grace.

Breath of God, show Christ in all I do.


Holy Spirit, from creation’s birth,

Giving life to all that God has made,

Show your power once again on earth;

Cause Your church to hunger

for Your ways.

Let the fragrance of our prayers arise.

Lead us on the road of sacrifice

That in unity the face of Christ

Will be clear for all the world to see.
