103R Awake Our Souls! Away Our Fears!

Orginal Title: "Awake Our Souls! Away Our Fears!" Issac Watts (1707), TRURO (L.M.), Psalmodia Evangelica (1789); No changes here. It does not appear in Singing the Living Tradition, nor in The New Century Hymnal. 2 Corinthians 5:17b (NRSV), "[E]verything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!"

TRURO (L.M.)

1. A-wake, our souls! a-way, our fears!
Let eve-ry trem-bling thought be gone!
A-wake, and run the heaven-ly race,
and put a cheer-ful cour-age on.

2. True, ’tis a strait and thorn-y road,
and mor-tal spir-its tire and faint;
But they for-get the migh-ty God,
that feeds the strength of eve-ry saint.


3. O migh-ty God, thy match-less power
is ev-er new, and ev-er young;
And firm en-dures, while end-less years
their ev-er-last-ing cir-cles run.

4. From thee, the ev-er flow-ing spring,
Our souls shall drink a fresh sup-ply;
While such as trust their na-tive strength
shall melt a-way, and droop, and die.

5. Swift as the ea-gle cuts the air,
we’ll mount a-loft to thine a-bode;
On wings of love our souls shall fly,
nor tire a-long the heaven-ly road.

109R Has Not Your Heart Within You Burned

REX GLORIOSE (L.M.)

1. Has not your heart with-in you burned
at even-ing's* calm and ho-ly hour,
as if its in-most depths dis-cerned
the pre-sence of a lof-tier power?

2. Have not you heard mid for-est glades
while an-cient ri-vers mur-mured by,
a voice from the e-ter-nal shades
that spoke a truth from heaven on high?


3. Was it the voice of God speak-ing
in si-lence to your si-lent heart,
per-chance each worth-ier thought bid-ding,
that eve-ry dream of earth de-part?

4. O voice of God, for-ev-er near,
in low, sweet ac-cents whis-pering peace,
make us your har-mo-nies to hear
whose heaven-ly e-choes nev-er cease.

* or 'the dawn's'

110R All Praise to You, My God, This Night

Tune: ALLMAECHTIGER GOTT, L.M., Johann Crueger (1598-1662)

1. All praise to you, my God, this night,
for all the bles-sings of the light!
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
beneath your own al-migh-ty wings.


2. When in the night I sleep-less lie,
my soul with heaven-ly thoughts sup-ply;
Let no ill dreams dis-turb my rest,
O Queen of life, my heart con-fessed.

3. Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as lit-tle as my bed.
That with the world, my-self and you,
sleep-ing, with peace the soul im-bue.

4. O may my soul on you re-pose,
and with sweet sleep mine eye-lids close,
asleep that may me more vi-gorous make
to serve my God when I a-wake.

129S O Mothering Father, God in Heaven

"O Mothering Father, God in Heaven," from the Lord's Prayer, rev. REH (2005), THIS ENDRIS NIGHT (C.M.D.), English carol (15th Cent.), arr. R. V. Williams (1906). Matthew 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4. The traditional version versus the lyrics here are compared below:

"Our Father, who art in Heaven" O Mothering Father, God in heaven
"Hallowed be thy Name" All hallowed be The Name
"Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven" May Love's reign come, God's will be done, on earth ever the same
"Give us this day our daily bread" O Holy One give humankind in every place its bread; it is from Life's bounty each day that all souls should be fed
"And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us" Forgive our transgressions, and teach compassion so we know that wholeness comes forgiving sins of each and every foe
"And lead us not into temptation" And lead us not into evil
"But deliver us from evil" And save us from all sin
"For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen" That glory, reign and power be, for endless worlds; Amen

THIS ENDRIS NIGHT (C.M.D.)

1. O Mothe-ring Fa-ther, God in heaven, all hal-lowed be The Name;
May Love's reign come, God's will be done, on earth ev-er the same;
O Ho-ly One give hu-man-kind in eve-ry place its bread;
It is from Life's boun-ty each day that all souls should be fed.

2. For-give our trans-gres-sions, and teach com-pas-sion so we know
that whole-ness comes for-giv-ing sins of each and eve-ry foe;
And lead us not in-to ev-il, and save us from all sin;
That glo-ry, reign and pow-er be, for end-less worlds; A-men
