Pavan by Alec Rowley
Sursum Corda by John Ireland

Hymns

Hymn 396

Mrs. Vokes
Adapted

Ye messengers of Christ,
His sovereign voice obey;
Arise, and follow where he leads,
And peace attend your way.

The Master whom ye serve
Will needful strength bestow;
Depending on his promised aid,
With sacred courage go.

In vain shall evil strive,
And hell in vain oppose;
The cause is God's and will prevail,
In spite of all His foes.

Hymn 476

Friedrich Preller; Eng. tr. CSPS

Fearful heart, put all your cares
Completely in your dear God’s hands;
Love feeds you with Her great strength
And your faith will always stand.
Now as you go safely forward,
Walk securely in Love’s grace.
Give to God the praise and glory;
Fear and doubt have no more place.

Longing heart, don’t give up hope
When threats of evil overwhelm.
Love now keeps Her promise true,
God’s sure hand is at the helm.
Bringing joy when all seems darkness—
God will keep you safe, secure.
You go forward, loved and peaceful:
Victory is always sure.

Hymn 475

Mildred Spring Case

Forget not who you are, O child of God,
For God demands of you reflection pure;
Your heritage is goodly, and your home,
In Spirit’s warm embrace, is safe, secure.

You are the child of Spirit, sinless, pure—
Yours is a perfect beauty, born of Soul—
Complete with health, vitality, and grace.
For is not God, your Father, perfect, whole?

Your understanding, too, comes straight from God.
For in that Mind, magnificent and clear,
You are conceived by Love, a perfect child,
Unhampered by the flesh, or doubt, or fear.

So now look up to God's pure holy light
And greet with fearless joy each coming day.
Of royal birth, you are a King's own child—
And God is yours, and you are God's alway.
