Hymn selection ~ Wednesday, September 15
O Life that maketh all things new,
The blooming earth, the thoughts of men;
Our pilgrim feet, wet with Thy dew,
In gladness hither turn again.
From hand to hand the greeting flows,
From eye to eye the signals run,
From heart to heart the bright hope glows,
The seekers of the Light are one:
One in the freedom of the truth,
One in the joy of paths untrod,
One in the heart’s perennial youth,
One in the larger thought of God;-
The freer step, the fuller breath,
The wide horizon’s grander view;
The sense of Life that knows no death,-
The Life that maketh all things new.
(Rosa M. Turner)
O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking,
O captive, rise and sing, for thou art free;
The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking,
Unloosing bonds of all captivity.
He comes to bless thee on his wings of healing;
To banish pain, and wipe all tears away;
He comes anew, to humble hearts revealing
The mounting footsteps of the upward way.
He comes to give thee joy for desolation,
Beauty for ashes of the vanished years;
For every tear to bring full compensation,
To give thee confidence for all thy fears.
He comes to call the dumb to joyful singing;
The deaf to hear; the blinded eyes to see;
The glorious tidings of salvation bringing.
O captive, rise, thy Saviour comes to thee.
(Gerhard Fritzsche & Juliane Klein)
All may seem vain, but we are forever
With You, written in the book of Life.
You are forever, You are forever,
All may seem vain, but You endure.
You, You endure; You, You endure,
With those written in the book of Life.
Life is eternal, infinite light, and
It gives us conviction, strength, and might.
Infinite light, infinite light,
Life is eternal, infinite light.
Infinite light, infinite light,
It gives us conviction, and strength, and might.
