All the Ends of the Earth

*

All the ends of the earth, all you creatures of the sea,
lift up your eyes to the wonders of the Lord.
For the Lord of the earth, the Master of the sea,
has come with justice for the world.
Break into song at the deeds of the Lord,
the wonders God has done in every age.

All the ends of the earth, all you creatures of the sea,
lift up your eyes to the wonders of the Lord.
For the Lord of the earth, the Master of the sea,
has come with justice for the world.
Heaven and earth shall rejoice in your might;
every heart, every nation call you Lord.

All the ends of the earth, all you creatures of the sea,
lift up your eyes to the wonders of the Lord.
For the Lord of the earth, the Master of the sea,
has come with justice for the world.
The Lord has made salvation known,
faithful to the promises of old.
Let the ends of the earth, let the sea
and all it holds make music before our God!

Hail Queen of Heaven

*

Hail, Queen of heaven, the ocean star,
Guide of the wanderer here below,
Thrown on life’s surge, we claim thy care,
Save us from peril and from woe.
Mother of Christ, O Star of the sea
Pray for the wanderer, pray for me.

O gentle, chaste, and spotless Maid,
We sinners make our prayers through thee;
Remind thy Son that He has paid
The price of our iniquity.
Virgin most pure, O star of the sea,
Pray for the sinner, pray for me.

Sojourners in this vale of tears,
To thee, blest advocate, we cry;
Pity our sorrows, calm our fears,
And sooth with hope our misery.
Refuge in grief, star of the sea,
Pray for the mourner, pray for me.

And while to Him Who reigns above
In Godhead one, in Persons three,
The Source of life, of grace, of love,
Homage we pay on bended knee:
Do thou, bright Queen, O star of the sea,
Pray for thy children, pray for me.

I Heard The Voice Of Jesus

*

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto Me and rest;
lay down, thou weary one, lay down
thy head upon My breast!”
I came to Jesus as I was,
so weary worn and sad;
I found in Him a resting-place,
and He has made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
the living water; thirsty one,
stoop down, and drink, and live!”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life-giving stream;
my thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
and now I live in Him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s Light;
look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,
and all thy day be bright!”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
in Him my Star, my Sun;
and in that Light of life I’ll walk,
till all my journey’s done.

When I Speak Your Name in Prayer

I’d like to sit you down and tell you everything’s okay
And have the strength enough to pull you through another day
I’d like to help you to believe that this will be all right
And that you will not have to spend another sleepless night

I’d like to hold your hand and wipe the teardrops from your eyes
And help you just to sort things out while you question why
I’d like to try and lift the load and carry it for you
And truly help you understand just what you’re going through

I’d like to have the words to make this trouble disappear
And give you peace of mind so you won’t shed another tear
I’d like to have the magic touch to take away your pain
And help you see the blue sky just beyond this blinding rain

But sometimes what we say or do just cannot be enough
To ease another’s passage through a trail so dark and rough
There is one thing I know will help much more than I can say
And rest assured that I will do it when I kneel to pray

I will take your name before the Father as I seek His face
And ask Him to enfold you in His arms of warm embrace
There’s no one who can comfort you quite like the Father can
And surely carry you across this dark and frightening span

Although, I dearly care for you and want to help so much
I know that what you really need is in the Father’s touch
So, I will take you to the throne and leave you in His care
I know He will deliver when I speak your name in prayer

Praise Her With A Flower

*

Who wipes my tears away?
Who melts my frown?
Who always saves my day?
The one who wears the crown.

Thank you for granting things
For our answered prayers
And for the hope you bring
To many who are in their dark despair.

Praise her with a flower
Thank heaven for our Mother
For her gift of love
Sent from up above
Brightens every hour.

From the highest tower
Shower her with flowers
Mother and a friend
From my grateful hands
Accept my humble flower.

On paper written lines
Express our needs
You always have the time
For every colour, race and creed.

Our faith has brought us here
From far and near
In one united voice
We thank you for your blessings
Through the years.

Christians Let Us Love One Another

*

Christians, let us love one another,
as we share the true living bread.
Jesus is our God and our brother;
with his flesh and blood we are fed
Everyone who loves is born of God.
Jesus is our life, God is love.

We who break this bread are one body,
we who share this cup are all one,
children of our Father in heaven,
sharers of the life of God’s Son.
Everyone who loves is born of God.
Jesus is our life, God is love.

We who eat and drink at this table
die and rise again with our Lord,
drawing from our rock living water
for all men who thirst for accord.
Everyone who loves is born of God.
Jesus is our life, God is love.

Wheat and grape incarnate a mystery;
Jesus is the true living bread.
Let us eat with joy and thanksgiving,
trusting in the word he has said.
Everyone who loves is born of God.
Jesus is our life, God is love.

Jesus is the vine, we the branches;
we are grains of wheat, Christ the bread.
Those who eat this bread live for ever,
one with Christ, our Lord and our head.
Everyone who loves is born of God.
Jesus is our life, God is love.
