Hymn 124

1 Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation;

praise God, my soul, for in him are your health and salvation;

come all who hear,

into his presence draw near

joining in glad adoration.


2 Praise to the Lord, who in all things is wondrously reigning,

shields you from harm and is gently yet firmly sustaining.

Have you not seen

how your heart’s wishes have been

granted by God’s wise ordaining?


 3 Praise to the Lord, who with blessing and power will defend you;

surely his goodness and mercy shall daily attend you;

ponder anew

what the Almighty can do:

God will for ever befriend you.


 4 Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!

All that has life and breath, come now with praises before him!

Let the Amen

sound from God’s people again:

gladly for ever adore him.

 


Hymn 468                           

1 Son of God, eternal Saviour,

source of life and truth and grace,
Son of Man, whose birth incarnate
hallows all our human race;
great High Priest who, throned in glory,
for your own will ever plead,
fill us with your love and pity,
heal our wrongs, and help our need.


2 Lord, as you have lived for others,
so may we for others live;
freely have your gifts been granted,
freely may your servants give.
Yours the gold and yours the silver,
yours the wealth of sea and land,
we but stewards of your bounty
held in trust at your command.


3 Come, Lord Jesus, reign among us,
King of Love, and Prince of Peace;
hush the storm of strife and passion,
bid its cruel discords cease.
Yours the prayer, and yours the purpose,
that your people should be one;
grant from heaven our hope’s fruition:
here on earth your will be done.
