song of the month

Song of the Month – April 2024

Our song for the month is “God of grace and God of glory” sung to the tune of “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah“. It is a hymn reflecting weakness, confession, hope and a call to live with a humble boldness for Christ our King. May our prayer be that God will grant us wisdom and courage for the facing of this hour, and for the living of these days.

God of grace and God of glory,
on Your people pour Your pow’r;
crown Your ancient Church’s story,
bring its bud to glorious flow’r.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage
for the facing of this hour,
for the facing of this hour.

Lo, the hosts of evil round us
scorn the Christ, assail His ways.
From the fears that long have bound us
free our hearts to faith and praise.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage
for the living of these days,
for the living of these days.

Cure Your children’s warring madness;
bend our pride to Your control;
shame our wanton, selfish gladness,
rich in things and poor in soul.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage
lest we miss Your kingdom’s goal,
lest we miss Your kingdom’s goal.

Save us from weak resignation
to the evils we deplore;
let the gift of Your salvation
be our glory evermore.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage
serving you whom we adore,
serving you whom we adore.
