April 15 Hymn Sing Lyrics

Now the Green Blade Rises

Verse 2

In the grave they laid him, love by hatred slain,

Thinking that he would never wake again,

Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

Verse 3

Forth he came at Easter, like the risen grain,

He that for three days in the grave had lain,

Raised from the dead, my living Lord is seen;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

Christ is Alive!

Christ is alive! Let Christians sing,

The cross stands empty to the sky.

Let streets and homes with praises ring.

Love, drowned in death, shall never die.

Verse 5

Christ is alive and come to bring

Good news to this and every age;

Till earth and sky and ocean ring

With joy, with justice, love and praise.

O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing

O sons and daughters, let us sing!

The King of heaven, the glorious King,

O’er death and hell rose triumphing.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Verse 6

How blest are they who have not seen,

And yet whose faith has constant been,

For they eternal life shall win.

Alleluia! Alleluia! 

Alleluia

Verse 2

He’s my Savior, Alleluia, he’s my Savior, Alleluia,

He’s my Savior, Alleluia, he’s my Savior, Alleluia!

Verse 3

He is worthy, Alleluia, he is worthy, Alleluia,

He is worthy, Alleluia, he is worthy, Alleluia!

Verse 4

I will praise him, Alleluia, I will praise him, Alleluia,

I will praise him, Alleluia, I will praise him, Alleluia!

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heaven to earth come down,

Fix in us thy humble dwelling, all thy faithful mercies crown. 

Jesus, thou art all compassion, pure, unbounded love thou art;

Visit us with thy salvation, enter every trembling heart.

Verse 4

Finish then thy new creation, pure and spotless let us be;

Let us see thy great salvation perfectly restore in thee:

Changed from glory into glory, til in heaven we take our place,

Till we cast our crowns before thee, lost in wonder, love, and praise.

And Can it Be

And can it be that I should gain an interest in the Savior’s blood?

Died he for me, who caused his pain? For me, who him to death pursued?

Amazing love! how can it be that thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

Amazing love! how can it be that thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

Verse 2

He left his Father’s throne above, so free, so infinite his grace!

Emptied himself of all but love, and bled for Adam’s helpless race!

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free, for, O my God, it found out me. 

Amazing love! how can it be that thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

Restore in Us, O God

Restore in us, O God, the splendor of your love;

Renew your image in our hearts, and all our sins remove.

Verse 2

O Spirit, wake in us the wonder of your power;

From fruitless fear unfurl our lives like springtime bud and flower.

Verse 3

Bring us, O Christ, to share the fullness of your joy;

Baptize us in the risen life that death cannot destroy.

Verse 4

Three-personed God, fulfill the promise of your grace,

That we, when all our searching ends, may see you face to face.

God is Here

God is here! As we your people meet to offer praise and prayer, 

May we find in fuller measure what it is in Christ we share. 

Here, as in the world around us, all our varied skills and arts 

Wait the coming of the Spirit into open minds and hearts. 

Verse 4

Lord of all, of church and kingdom, in an age of change and doubt, 

Keep us faithful to the Gospel; help us work your purpose out. 

Here, in this day’s dedication, all we have to give, receive; 

We, who cannot live without you, we adore you! We believe!

When in Our Music God is Glorified

When in our music God is glorified,

And adoration leaves no room for pride,

It is as though the whole creation cried: Alleluia!

Verse 5

Let every instrument be tuned for praise!

Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!

And may God give us faith to sing always: Alleluia!

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name. 

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen. Amen.
