HIS VOICE AS THE SOUND

His voice as the sound of the dulcimer sweet,

Is heard through the shadows of death;

The cedars of Lebanon bow at His feet,

The air is perfumed with His breath.

 

His lips as a fountain of righteousness flow,

That waters the garden of grace,

From which their salvation the Gentiles shall know,

And bask in the smile of His face.

 

Love sits in His eyelids and scatters delight

Through all the bright regions on high,

Their faces the Cherubim veil in His sight,

And tremble with fullness of joy.

 

He looks, and ten thousands of angels rejoice,

And myriads wait for His word,

He speaks, and eternity filled with His voice,

Re-echoes the praise of her Lord.

 

He looks, and ten thousands of angels rejoice,

And myriads wait for His word,

He speaks, and eternity filled with His voice,

Re-echoes the praise of her Lord.

Re-echoes the praise of her Lord.

HE WATCHING OVER ISRAEL

He, watching over Israel,

slumbers not nor sleeps

He slumbers not

nor sleeps.

Shouldst thou walking in grief, languish,

He will quicken thee.

He, watching over Israel,

slumbers not nor sleeps.

JOHN THE REVELATOR

O tell me who is that writin’?

John the Revelator, writin’ in the book of seven seals.

O tell me what is he writin’?

‘Bout the Revelation, writin’ in the book of seven seals.

When John looked over Calvary’s hill, 

Heard a rumblin’ like a chariot wheel.

Tell us, John, what did you see?

I saw a beast rising from the sea!

Tell me who is that writin’?

John the Revelator, writin’ in the book of seven seals.

O tell me what is he writin’?

‘Bout the Revelation, writin’ in the book of seven seals.

Talk to us John! What’s the good news?

The crippeld can walk; the dumb are singin’ the blues.

Oh John, in the graveyard, whada ya see?

The dead are dancin’ all around me.

Oh tell us: Who is writin’?

Tell us: What he’s writin’?

Tell us: Who is writin’?

Tell us: Why he’s writin’?

Tell us: Who is writin’?

Time for revelation and for jubilation.

Tell us what you’re writin’

Read it to us, John!

Well, just tell it in your book.

John, write it down for us in that book.

John, write it down for us in that book of seven seals.

John!

LOVE AT HOME

There is beauty all around

When there’s love at home;

There is joy in ev’ry sound

When there’s love at home.

Peace and plenty here abide,

Smiling sweet on ev’ry side.

Time doth softly, sweetly glide

When there’s love at home.

Love at home, love at home;

Time doth softly, sweetly glide

When there’s love at home.

 

In the cottage there is joy

When there’s love at home;

Hate and envy ne’er annoy

When there’s love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet;

All the earth’s a garden sweet,

Making life a bliss complete

When there’s love at home.

Love at home, love at home;

Making life a bliss complete

When there’s love at home.

Kindly heaven smiles above

When there’s love at home;

All the world is filled with love

When there’s love at home.

Sweeter sings the brooklet by;

Brighter beams the azure sky.

Oh, there’s One who smiles on high

When there’s love at home.

Love at home, love at home;

Oh, there’s One who smiles on high

When there’s love at home.

ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEATIFUL

All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful,

The Lord God made them all.

 

Each little flower that opens,

Each little bird that sings,

He made their glowing colours,

He made their tiny wings.

 

The purple-headed mountain,

The river running by,

The sunset and the morning,

That brightens up the sky;

 

The cold wind in the winter,

The pleasant summer sun,

The ripe fruits in the garden,

He made them every one;

 

He gave us eyes to see them,

And lips that we might tell

How great is God Almighty,

Who has made all things well.

OH SAVIOR, WHAT ARE THESE TEARS?

Oh Savior, what are these tears

That I see in thine eyes?

Are they the tears that were shed for me

In the place called Gethsemane?

And Savior, what are these wounds

Which pierce thy hands and feet?

Are they the wounds that were made for me

When thou didst die on Calvary?

Upon the cross, the price was paid

That I might not remain a slave.

With precious blood thou ransomed me

That from death's power I might be free.

Dear Savior, did I have part

In the pain that broke thy heart?

The bitter cup thou didst partake

And all of this for a sinner's sake.

Oh Savior, what are these tears

That I see in thine eyes?

Are they the tears that were shed for me

In the place called Gethsemane?

In the place called Gethsemane?

ONE BY ONE

Though I am just one little lamb,
Among the Savior's many sheep.
He knows exactly who I am,
His love for me is wide and deep.

 

One by one, 
He gathers all His children,
One by one, 
He teaches them His way.
And I know by His smile, 
I am His child.
Jesus loves us one by one.

 

Though I am just a little one,
I'll help my Savior tend His flock.
And gladly do what He has done,
In how I serve and how I talk.

 

Someday the Savior's face I'll see,
And know I'm in His arms to stay.
Then as He lifts me to His knee,
I'll thank Him that He showed me the way.

CLOUDBURST

La lluvia

Ojos de agua de sombra,

Ojos de agua de pozo,

Ojos de agua de sueño.

 

Soles azules, verdes remolinos

Picos de luz que abren astros

Como granadas.

 

Dime, tierra quemada, no hay agua?

Hay sólo sangre sólo hay polvo,

Sólo pisadasde pies desnudos sobre la espina?

La lluvia despierta

 

Hay que dormir con los ojos abiertos,

Hay que sonar con las manos

Soñemos sueños activos de rio

Buscando su cause, sueños de sol soñando sus mundos

Hay que soñar en voz alta,

Hay que cantar

Hasta que el canto eche

Raíces, tronco, ramas,

Hay que desenterrar la palabra perdida

Recordar que dicen sangre, la marea,

La tierra y el cuerpo,

Volver al punto de partida...

The rain…

Eyes of shadow-water,

eyes of well-water,

eyes of dream-water.

 

Blue suns, green whirlwinds,

Birdbeaks of light pecking open

pomegranate stars.

 

But tell me, burnt earth, is there no water?

Only blood, only dust,

Only naked footsteps on the thorns?

 

The rain awakens…

 

We must sleep with open

eyes,

We must dream with our hands,

We dream active dreams of a river

Seeking its course, of the sun dreaming its worlds,

We must dream aloud,

We must sing

Till the song puts forth

roots, trunk, branches,

We must find the lost

word,

Remember what the blood,

the tides, the earth,

and the body say,

And return to the point of departure…

CONSIDER THE LILLIES

Consider the lilies of the field,

How they grow, how they grow.

Consider the birds in the sky,

How they fly, how they fly.

He clothes the lilies of the field.

He feeds the birds in the sky.

And He will feed those who trust Him,

And guide them with His eye.

 

Consider the sheep of His fold,

How they follow where He leads.

Though the path may wind across the mountains,

He knows the meadows where they feed.

He clothes the lilies of the field.

He feeds the birds in the sky,

And He will feed those who trust Him,

And guide them with His eye.

 

Consider the sweet, tender children

Who must suffer on this earth.

The pains of all of them He carried

From the day of His birth.

He clothes the lilies of the field,

He feeds the lambs in His fold,

And He will heal those who trust Him,

And make their hearts as gold.

 

He clothes the lilies of the field,

He feeds the lambs in His fold,

And He will heal those who trust Him,

And make their hearts as gold.

GLORIA (MY SAVIOR LIVES)

Sing O my heart,
Sing thy rejoicing,
Morning has dawned
And will stretch forth her wing.
No more the night
Holds thee his captive
Jesus is risen, my Saviour and king.

 

I'll sing Gloria,
Glory to the Lord.
Gloria, glory for the life he doth bring.
Gloria, gloria gloria
Gloria for my Saviour lives.

 

Why dost thou weep?
What is thy longing?
Why art thou cast down and turned from the light?
Lift up your eyes,
Look for the morning.
Wait for the darkness is only the night.
And sing gloria,
Glory to the Lord,
Gloria, glory for the life he doth bring.
Gloria, gloria, gloria,
Gloria for my Saviour lives.

 

Israel rejoice,
Sing all creation
Jesus is risen with risen with life in His wings.
Raise up your voice (raise up your voice)
(Sing our salvation) 
Sing o ye, now more than conquerers,
Through Him our king.
Sing we gloria (gloria)
(Gloria, glory to the Lord)
For the life He doth give,
O Sing gloria, gloria
Gloria for my Saviour lives.

 

Gloria, gloria, gloria
Gloria for my Saviour lives

THE SPIRIT OF GOD LIKE A FIRE IS BURNING

The Spirit of God like a fire is burning!

The latter-day glory begins to come forth;

The visions and blessings of old are returning,

And angels are coming to visit the earth.

 

CHORUS

We’ll sing and we’ll shout with the armies of heaven,

Hosanna, hosanna to God and the Lamb!

Let glory to them in the highest be given,

Henceforth and forever, Amen and amen!

 

The Lord is extending the Saints’ understanding,

Restoring their judges and all as at first.

The knowledge and power of God are expanding;

The veil o’er the earth is beginning to burst.

 

We’ll call in our solemn assemblies in spirit,

To spread forth the kingdom of heaven abroad,

That we through our faith may begin to inherit

The visions and blessings and glories of God.
