We Three Kings Of Orient Are

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Music and Lyrics: John H. Hopkins

We three kings of Orient are;
Bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

Refrain:
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign.

Frankincense to offer have I;
Incense owns a Deity nigh;
Prayer and praising, voices raising,
Worshiping God on high.

Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorr’wing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone cold tomb.

Glorious now behold Him arise;
King and God and sacrifice;
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Sounds through the earth and skies.

Lyrics: Traditional German carol
Music: Traditional German melody

While by the sheep we watched at night,
Glad tidings brought an angel bright.

Refrain:
How great our joy! Great our joy!
Joy, joy, joy! Joy, joy, joy!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!

There shall be born, so He did say,
In Bethlehem a Child today.

There shall the Child lie in a stall,
This Child who shall redeem us all.

This gift of God we’ll cherish well,
That ever joy our hearts shall fill.

The King Of Love My Shepherd Is

Lyrics: Henry W. Baker
Music: Harry Rowe Shelley

The King of love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never,
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever.

Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.

And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.

The law of the LORD is per-fect,

en-light-en-ing the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is clean,

right-eous al-to-ge-ther.

Here is an original hymn which is based on Psalm 122. The music is Israel’s National Anthem.

Lyrics: Rev (Dr) Jeffrey Khoo
Music: HATIKVAH – Trad. Israeli

I was glad when they said to me
Let us go into the house of the LORD.
Our feet shall stand within thy gates,
Within thy gates Ye-ru-sha-la-yim

Refrain:
Pr-ay for Ye-ru-sha-la-yim,
Peace to her Sha-lom with-in thy walls.
For all my bre-thren and com-panions’ sake
I will now sing peace to you ag-ain.
For all my bre-thren and com-panions’ sake
I will now sing peace to you ag-ain.

Ye-ru-sha-layim is built up-on a mount,
A ci-ty that is com-pact to-ge-ther.
When the tribes go up to thank the LORD,
It is be-cuase the Son of Da-vid reigns.
