PENTECOST -  Sunday, September 27th

Hymns for Worship, Sunday September 27th

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

 

1   A mighty fortress is our God, a sword and shield victorious;

he breaks the cruel oppressor's rod and wins salvation glorious.

The old satanic foe has sworn to work us woe!  With craft and dreadful might

he arms himself to fight.  On earth he has no equal.

2   No strength of ours can match his might! We would be lost, rejected.

But now a champion comes to fight, whom God himself elected.

You ask who this may be?  The Lord of hosts is he!

Christ Jesus, mighty Lord, God's only Son, adored.  He holds the field victorious.

3   Though hordes of devils fill the land all threat'ning to devour us,

we tremble not, unmoved we stand; they cannot overpow'r us.

Let this world's tyrant rage; in battle we'll engage! His might is doomed to fail;

God's judgment must prevail! One little word subdues him.

4   God's Word forever shall abide, no thanks to foes, who fear it;

for God himself fights by our side with weapons of the Spirit.

Were they to take our house, goods, honor, child, or spouse,

though life be wrenched away,they cannot win the day. The kingdom's ours forever!

O God, My Faithful God

 

1   O God, my faithful God, true fountain ever flowing,

without whom nothing is, all perfect gifts bestowing:

give me a healthy frame, and may I have within

a conscience free from blame, a soul unstained by sin.

2   Give me the strength to do with ready heart and willing

whatever you command, my calling here fulfilling--

to do it when I ought, with all my might--and bless

whatever I have wrought, for you must give success.

 

3   Keep me from saying words that later need recalling;

guard me, lest idle speech may from my lips be falling;

but when, within my place, I must and ought to speak,

then to my words give grace, lest I offend the weak.

 

4   When dangers gather round, oh, keep me calm and fearless;

help me to bear the cross when life seems dark and cheerless;

help me, as you have taught, to love both great and small,

and, by your Spirit's might, to live at peace with all.

 

Text: Johann Heermann, 1585-1647; tr. Catherine Winkworth, 1827-1878, alt.

 

Hallelujah! We Sing Your Praises

Refrain: Hallelujah! We sing your praises,

all our hearts are filled with gladness.

Hallelujah! We sing your praises,

all our hearts are filled with gladness.  Repeat

 

 

1   Christ the Lord to us said: I am wine, I am bread,

I am wine, I am bread, give to all who thirst and hunger. 

Refrain: Hallelujah! We sing your praises,

all our hearts are filled with gladness.

Hallelujah! We sing your praises,

all our hearts are filled with gladness.  Repeat

 

 

2   Now he sends us all out, strong in faith, free of doubt,

strong in faith, free of doubt. Tell to all the joyful gospel. 

Refrain: Hallelujah! We sing your praises,

all our hearts are filled with gladness.

Hallelujah! We sing your praises,

all our hearts are filled with gladness.  Repeat
