Johann Walther, 1524
May God be praised henceforth and blest for-ev - er! Who, Him-self both
With His own flesh and blood our souls doth nourish;
Thine own moth-er Ma - ry came, By the drops which Thou did'st bleed,
Help us in
the hour of need.
Lord, have mer - cy
2 Thou hast to death Thy holy body given,
Life to win for us in heaven
Lord, have mercy on us.
3 May God bestow on us His grace and blessing,
That, His holy footsteps tracing,
Lord, have mercy on us.
M. Luther. 1524
O how shall I re - ceive Thee, How meet Thee on Thy way;
Blest hope of ev - eryna - tion, My soul's de-light and stay?
To know what-e'er is pleas - ing And wel-come in
2 Thy Zion palms is strewing
4 Ye who with guilty terror With branches fresh and fair;
Are trembling, fear no more; And every soul awaking,
With love and grace the Savior Her anthem shall prepare;
Shall you to hope restore: Perpetual thanks and praises
He comes, who contrite sinners Forth from our hearts shall spring; Will with the children place, And to Thy name the service
The children of His Father,
The heirs of life and grace. 30 ye who sorrow, sinking
5 He comes, the Lord, to judgment; Beneath your grief and pain,
Woe, woe to them who hate! Rejoice in His appearing,
To those who love and seek Him Who shall your souls sustain:
He opes the heavenly gate. He comes, He comes with gladness! Come quickly, gracious Savior, How great is His good-will!
And gather us to Thee, He comes, all grief and anguish That in the light eternal Shall at His word be still.
Our joyous home may be.
Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates, Be - hold the King of glo - ry waits;
The King of kings is draw-ing near, The Sav-ior of the world is here.
Life and sal
on doth He bring, Wherefore re - joice and gladly sing:
2 The Lord is just, a helper tried,
4 Fling wide the portals of your heart, Mercy is ever at His side;
Make it a temple set apart His kingly crown is holiness,
From earthly use for heaven's employ His sceptre, pity in distress.
Adorned with prayer and love and joy, The end of all our woes He brings; So shall our Sovereign enter in, Wherefore the earth is glad and sings, And new and nobler life begin, We praise Thee, Savior, now;
To Thee, O God, be praise, Mighty indeed art Thou.
For word, and deed, and grace! 3 () blest the land, the city blest
5 Piedeemer, come, I open wide Where Christ the ruler is confessed: My heart to Thee; here, Lord, abide: O happy hearts and happy homes, Let me Thine inner presence feel, To whom this King in triumph comes! Thy grace and love in me reveal. The cloudless sun of joy He is,
Thy Holy Spirit guide us on Who bringeth pure delight and bliss; Until our glorious goal is won! O Comforter divine!
Eternal praise and fame What boundless grace is Thine!
We offer to Thy name!
