When in the Hour of Utmost Need, BWV 641 by Johann Sebastian Bach
Choral by Alexandre Guilmant
Melody in G by Alexandre Guilmant
Based on the Swedish of
Lina Sandell Berg
O Father, Thy kingdom is come upon earth,
Thou rulest in all Thy creation;
Thou sendest Thy witnesses, telling Thy worth,
To call and entreat every nation,
With news of Thy mighty salvation.
They lift up a light amid shadows of fear,
And Love is Thy banner above them;
No trouble shall touch them, no foes that appear
Shall e'er from their loyalty move them;
'Tis Thou dost uphold and approve them.
They go in Thy strength, and they speak in Thy name,
With power of Thy promise forth faring,
And during the battle the victory claim, —
Their trust in Thy truth is their daring,
Salvation to all men declaring.
Words not available due to copyright.
Joy to the world, the Lord is come,
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing.
No more let sin and sorrow grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
Where'er he comes, his blessings flow,
And hope and joy abound.
He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness
And wonders of his love.
Prelude & Fugue in B-flat Major BWV 560 by Johann Sebastian Bach
