Hymns 1/5

A Selection of Frequently Requested Hymns

1. All people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice

Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell;

Come ye before him and rejoice.

The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;

Without our aid he did us make.

We are his folk, He doth us feed,

And for his sheep He doth us take.

O enter then His gates with praise,

Approach with joy his courts unto;

Praise, laud, and bless His name always,

For it is seemly so to do.

For why, The Lord our God is good;

His mercy is for ever sure;

His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure.

2. 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.

All things bright and beautiful...

The purple headed mountain,

the river running by,

the sunset, and the morning

that brightens up the sky

All things bright and beautiful...

The cold wind in the winter,

the pleasant summer sun,

the ripe fruits in the garden,

He made them every one.

All things bright and beautiful...

He gave us eyes to see them,

and lips that we might tell

how great is God almighty,

who has made all things well.

All things bright and beautiful...

3. Amazing grace how sweet the sound

that saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,

was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,

and grace my fears relieved;

how precious did that grace appear

the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares,

I have already come;

'tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,

and grace will lead me home.

When we've been there ten thousand years

bright shining as the sun,

we've no less days to sing God's praise

that when we've first begun.
