Hymn of the Week: “The Spacious Firmament On High” Addison/Haydn

The spacious firmament on high, With all the blue ethereal sky,
And spangled heavens, a shining frame, Their great Original proclaim:
The unwearied sun, from day to day, Does his Creator’s power display;
And publishes to every land the work of an almighty hand.

Soon as the evening shades prevail,
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
And nightly, to the listening earth, Repeats the story of her birth;
While all the stars that round her burn,
And all the planets in their turn, Confirm the tidings as they roll,
And spread the truth from pole to pole.

What though, in solemn silence, all
Move round the dark terrestrial ball?
What though no real voice nor sound Amid their radiant orbs be found? In reason’s ear they all rejoice, And utter forth a glorious voice, Forever singing as they shine, “The hand that made us is divine.”

“By him all things were created, in heaven and on earth,

Hymn of the WeeK: “Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Skies”
Wesley, Gounod

Christ, whose glory fills the skies, Christ the true, the only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise, Triumph o’er the shades of night;
Dayspring from on high, be near; Day star, in my heart appear.

Dark and cheerless is the morn unaccompanied by Thee,
Joyless is the day’s return till Thy mercy’s beams I see;
Till they inward light impart, Glad my eyes and warm my heart.

Visit, then, this soul of mine; Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
Fill me, Radiancy Divine; Scatter all my unbelief;
More and more Thyself display, Shining to the perfect day.

Hymn of the Week: Awake My Soul by Thomas Ken, Robert Schumann

“Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run:
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise
To pay Thy morning sacrifice.

Wake and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part,
Who all night long, unwearied sing
High praise to the eternal King.”

Awake my boys, and let’s start school!
