LOVE AND LOYALTY
|Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts||100|
|(CANONBURY. L. M.)|
|Bernard of Clairvaux, 1153||Robert Schumann,1856|
- 1. Je sus, thou joy of loving hearts,
Thou Fount of life, thou Light of men,
From the best bliss that earth imparts,
We turn unfilled to thee again,
- Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood;
Thou savest those that on thee call;
To them that seek thee, thou art good,
To them that find thee, all in all !
- We taste thee, O thou living Bread,
And long to feast upon thee still;
We drink of thee, the Fountain Head,
And thirst our souls from thee to fill. Amen.
|O Maker of the Sea and Sky||101|
|Henry Burton,1605||From the Kyrie, Twelfth Mass,
by Johann Mozart, 1756-1791
- Maker of the sea and sky,
Whose word the storm-y winds fulfill,
On the wide ocean thou art nigh,
Bidding these hearts of ours be still.
- Thou bidd'st the north or south wind blow;
The lonely sea bird is thy care;
And in the clouds which come and go,
We see thy chariots everywhere.
- The sun that lights the homeland dear
Spreads the new morning o'er the deep;
And in the dark thy stars appear,
Keeping their watches while we sleep.
- And so, secure from all arms,
Thy seas beneath, thy skies above,
Clasped in the everlastng arms,
We rest in thine unslumbering love.
