Product Code: EB06 Eden's Bridge - Celtic Reflections On Hymns

Original Release: Jul 1999

Price: £9.95

"Turning to the words of the old hymns. we have found that they say for us the things we find it hard to say ourselves. Their rich tapestry of words and beautiful melodies touch us in a fresh new way each time we play them."  
Eden's Bridge (1999)


"The first time I heard this ensemble I was hooked, and nothing I have heard in the two years or so since has made me alter my opinion. These guys are magic!  This album is near­ly 55 minutes of gorgeous music, immaculately played, sung and arranged. Absolute bliss from start to finish." 10/10 Cross Rhythms
This album was nominated for a Dove Award in the USA. (April 2000)

 

lyrics

Just As I Am

Just as I am without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou biddest me come to Thee
O Lamb of God I come

Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my vision O Lord of my heart
Be all else but nought to me save that Thou Art
Be Thou my best thought in the day and the night
Both waking and sleeping Thy presence my light

Be Thou my wisdom, be Thou my true word
Be Thou ever with me and I with Thee Lord
Be Thou my great Father and I Thy true son
Be Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one

Be Thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight
Be Thou my whole armour, be Thou my true might?
Be Thou my soul’s shelter, be Thou my strong tower
O raise Thou me heav’nward, great power of my power

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise
Be Thou mine inheritance, now and always?
Be Thou and Thou only the first in my heart?
O Sov’reign of heaven, my treasure Thou art

High King of heaven, Thou heaven’s bright sun
O grant me its joys after victory is won
Great heart of my own heart, whatever befalls
Still be Thou my vision, O ruler of all

Here Is Love

Here is love, vast as the ocean
Loving kindness as the flood
When the Prince of life, our ransom
Shed for us His precious blood

Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He will never be forgotten
Throughout heav’ns eternal days

On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide

Grace and love like mighty rivers
Flowed incessant from above
And heaven’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love

Father Hear The Prayer We Offer

Father hear the prayer we offer
Not for ease that prayer shall be
But for strength that we may ever
Live our lives courageously

Not forever in green pastures
Do we ask our way to be
But the steep and rugged pathway
May we tread rejoicingly

Not forever by still waters
Would we idly rest and stay?
But would smite the living fountains
From the rocks upon our way

Be our strength in hours of weakness
In our wand’rings be our guide
Through endeavour, failure, danger
Father be Thou at our side

Fairest Lord Jesus

Fairest Lord Jesus, Lord of all creation
Jesus of God and man the Son
You will I cherish, You will I honour
You are my soul’s delight and crown

Fair are the meadows, fairer this the woodlands
Robed in the verdure and bloom of spring
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer
He makes the saddest heart to sing

Fair is the moonlight, fairer still the sunshine
Fair is the shimmering starry sky
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines clearer
Than all the heav’nly host on high

All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly
Wond’rously Jesus in you in found
None can be nearer, fairer or dearer
Than You my Saviour to me bound

Sanctus
 
Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus

Dominus Dominus Deus Sabaoth

Pleni sunt coeli et terra Gloria tua

Osanna, Osanna, Osanna, Osanna

In excelsis

Holy, Holy, Holy
 
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee
Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty
God in three persons, blessed Trinity

Holy, Holy, Holy, all the saints adore Thee
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea
Cherubim and sepaphim falling down before Thee
Who were and are and evermore shall be

Holy, Holy, Holy, though the darkness hide Thee
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see
Only Thou art holy, there is none beside Thee
Perfect in power, in love and purity

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty
All Thy works shall praise Thy name In earth and sky and sea
Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty
God in three persons, blessed Trinity

Take My Life And Let It Be

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise

Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee

Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only for my King
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee

Take my love, O Lord I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee

Trad Arr EB © 1999 Whole World Publishing


Eternal Father

Eternal Father, strong to save
Whose arm has bound the restless wave
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep

O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea

O Christ whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy word
Who walkedst on the foaming deep
And calm amid the storm did keep

O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea

O Trinity of love and power
Our people shield in danger’s hour
From rock and tempest, fire and foe
Guard them wherever they may go

Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea

Just As I Am

Just as I am without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou biddest me come to Thee
O Lamb of God I come

Just as I am Thou wilt receive
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve
Because Thy promise I believe
O Lamb of God I come

Just as I am Thy love unknown
Has broken every barrier down
Now to be Thine, yea Thine alone
O Lamb of God I come

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I’m found
Was blind but now I see

Tis grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my rears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
‘Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

Trad Arr EB © 1999 Whole World Publishing


Abide With Me

Abide with me,
fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens,
Lord with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless,
O abide with me

I need Thy presence
ev’ry passing hour
What but Thy grace
can foil the tempter’s power?
Who like Thyself
my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine
Lord, abide with me

I fear no foe
with Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight
and tears no bitterness
Where is death’s sting?
Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still
if Thou abide with me
