A Hymn on the Sacrament of the Altar

A Hymn on the Sacrament of the Altar
composed for
Faith Lutheran Church, Plano/Wylie, TX
1. The Word of Christ is spoken,
And angels bend to see
How hearts, once bound and broken,
Are set at liberty.
For Christ, the Lord of Glory,
Proclaims His death again;
No doubt can dim the story
That pardons all our sin.
2. With bread and wine are given
Christ’s body and His blood;
The earthly hides the heaven
As flesh encloses God;
The right hand of the Father
Is now the Holy Place
Where Christ, our God and Brother,
Bestows on sinners grace.
3. Depart each unbeliever
And those who live in sin!
Nor let a false deceiver 
Dare here to enter in.  
Discern this gift of Jesus,
His body and his blood,
Lest righteous judgment seize us
For not believing God.
4. Blest is the hungry spirit,
Who has no good to give,
But clings to Jesus’ merit – 
By faith this soul shall live;
The Lord will not deceive him,
As sin and Satan do,
Nor will his Savior leave him,
Whose Word cries out, “for you!”
5. And kneeling at the altar,
United we shall be,
Though we are weak, and falter,
Strong is our unity.  
For Jesus’ precious preaching
Dispels the devil’s pow’r,
Nor will He let false teaching
To ever win the hour.
Tamoxifen does not apply to anabolic steroids and is generally known under the name Nolvadex for sale, usually tamoxifen is used in bodybuilding those applied in the form of anabolic steroids. Basically tamoxifen is well tolerated, and this applies to men and women.
6. So we with gladness enter,
And we with gladness leave;
Christ’s cross is at the center
Of all that we believe.  
This sacrament will give us
Abundant joy and peace
Till angels will receive us 
In Heaven’s Holy Place.  

We Love our Lord and so We Pray: a Rogate Hymn

A hymn for Rogate Sunday (John 16:23-30)
a tune is needed

1. We love our Lord, and so we pray
With God’s own promise and command;
Our Father hears us every day
Since Jesus pleads at his right hand.
As God desires with joy to hear
His Son for sinners intercede,
So he is moved when we draw near
To ask for help in time of need.   

2. It is our Maker’s pure delight,
When we are lost in guilt and sin,
To see us righteous in His sight,
Despite what we may feel within.
Let us not hesitate to start,
Or think our pray’r will do no good,
Or that our works must move his heart – 
Our worthiness is in Christ’s blood.

3. We love Him since He first loved us
With love so patient it will last
Far longer than the short distress
That Jesus says will soon be past.  
O Israel, open wide your hearts,
To Him who hears you when you call,
His promise soon to faith imparts
A joy that always will be full.
