Lyrics

O Dreamer
Music: Traditional Irish Melody
Lyrics by 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.

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.
O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking

My Grateful Spirit Sings
Music and Lyrics by Sally DeFord

In all thy works I see thy glory
In mighty wonders; in small and simple things
My
heart rejoices in the bounty set before me
And my grateful spirit sings

Each rising sun tells of thy goodness
The rain proclaims Thee in the life it
brings
And all creation bears Thee sure and silent witness
And my grateful
spirit sings

The stars that crown the realms of space
Reflect the image of thy grace
The
rolling seas, the earth and sky
Declare thy pow’r, thy majesty and might

I see thy hand in man’s compassion
Thou art the font of kindness whence it
springs
Thy boundless charity hath wrought my soul’s salvation
And my grateful
spirit sings

For changeless love and endless mercy
For countless blessings beyond the
wealth of kings
For every perfect gift thou sendest, Lord, I praise thee
And my
grateful spirit sings

PSALM 23

Lyrics from Psalms 23
Music by Nitya Thomas and Peter Link

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down
In green pastures
He leadeth beside
Still waters
He restoreth my soul
And leadeth me in paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake

And yea though I walk
Through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
No evil
For Love is beside me
Yes, Love is beside me

Thou preparest a table
In the presence of my enemies
Thou anointest my head with oil
And my cup runneth over

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house
The consciousness of love
Forever and for ever more

The Lord is my shepherd
And He leadeth me
He leadeth me
He leadeth me
