Hymns and Liturgy for January 24th

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name

All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall
Bring forth the royal diadem
And crown him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem
And crown him Lord of all.


Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race
Ye ransomed from the fall
Hail him who saves you by his grace
And crown him Lord of all.
Hail him who saves you by his grace
And crown him Lord of all.


Let every kindred, every tribe
On this terrestrial ball
To him all majesty ascribe
And crown him Lord of all.
To him all majesty ascribe
And crown him Lord of all.

Jesus Loves  Me

Jesus loves me! This I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
In his love we shall be strong.


Refrain
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me: This I know
As he loved so long ago
Taking children on his knee
Saying “Let them come to me.”

Refrain

Jesus loves me still today
Walking with me on my way
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.

Refrain

God Has Work for Us to Do

by Mark Miller

Til all the jails are empty
And all the bellies filled
Till no one hurts or steals or lies
And no more blood is spilled:


God has work for us to do
Til God’s work is done and all things are made new
God has work for us, work for us to do.


Til age and race and gender no longer separate
Til pulpit, press and politics are free of greed and hate.

God has work for us to do
Til God’s work is done and all things are made new
God has work for us, work for us to do.


In tenement and mansion
In factory farm and mill
In board room and in billiard hall
In wards where time stands still.


In classroom church and office
In shops or on the street
In every place where people thrive
Or starve or hide or meet.

By sitting at a bedside to hold pale trembling hands
By speaking for the powerless against unjust demands
By praying through our doing and singing though we fear
By trusting that the seed we sow will bring God’s harvest near.

God has work for us to do
Til God’s work is done and all things are made new
God has work for us, work for us to do.
