Sounds of Home – Punch

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the September 29th edition of Sounds of Home!

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heav’n to earth come down!
Fix in us thy humble dwelling, all thy faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, thou art all compassion, pure, unbounded love thou art;
visit us with thy salvation, enter ev’ry trembling heart.

Breathe, oh, breathe thy loving Spirit, into every troubled breast;
let us all in thee inherit; let us find thy promised rest.
Take away the love of sinning; Alpha and Omega be;
end of faith, as its beginning, set our hearts at liberty.

Text: Charles Wesley
Music: Rowland H. Prichard

Sounds of Home – Match

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the September 22nd edition of Sounds of Home!

The Oats

Here I stand with tinkling bells galore,
twenty on each straw, I think, or more.
But the farmer, bless his honest soul,
calls me oats and speaks of twenty fold.

I was sown while happy birds in spring
made with joyful songs the welkin ring.
Bumblebees in wild and tumbling race,
in the mellow sunshine droned the bass.

Growing up in sun and morning dew
that sweet symphony within me grew.
He who listens humbly while I ring,
hears the echo of the songs of spring.

Cold unfeeling hearts can never see
anything but cattle feed in me.
I am more than food for hungry jaws,
I am song of birds on golden straws.

I am friends with everything that grows,
friends with every gentle wind that blows,
friends with waving trees and summer skies,
friends with daisies and with butterflies.

When the sun goes down, its parting smile
lingers on my golden head awhile,
and when evening bells ring out, I, too,
tinkle, standing tip-toe in the dew.

I am ringing children to their beds,
ringing up the mist that slowly spreads.
Ringing peace, as busy day departs,
into humble homes, and pious hearts.

Sounds of Home – Night

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the September 8th edition of Sounds of Home!

All Through the Night

Sleep my love and peace attend thee
All through the night
Guardian angels God will send thee
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping
I my loved ones’ watch am keeping
All through the night

Angels watching, e’er around thee
All through the night
Midnight slumber close surround thee
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping
Hill and vale in slumber sleeping
I my loved ones’ watch am keeping
All through the night

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night
O’er thy spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All through the night

Sounds of Home – Table

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the August 25th edition of Sounds of Home!

United at the Table
Unidos en la fiesta

Refrain:
United at the table: all our joy is joined in song.
United in the faith: all our joy to God belongs.

We will praise God, we will sing
alleluias with hymns and with psalmody;
we will praise God for the love
that sustains us eternally. Refrain

We will praise God, we will feast
at the bountiful table of life and grace;
we will praise God and give thanks
for communion with ev’ry race. Refrain

We will praise God, we will play
alleluias with rhythm and instruments;
we will praise God for the love
that invites all creation to dance. Refrain

Sounds of Home – Mend

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the August 11th edition of Sounds of Home!

There Is a Balm in Gilead

Refrain:
There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole;
there is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin-sick soul.

Sometimes I feel discouraged and think my work’s in vain,
but then the Holy Spirit revives my soul again. Refrain

If you cannot preach like Peter, if you cannot pray like Paul,
you can tell the love of Jesus and say, “He died for all.” Refrain

Don’t ever be discouraged, for Jesus is your friend;
and if you lack for knowledge, he’ll ne’er refuse to lend. Refrain

Text: African American spiritual
Music: African American spiritual; alternative acc. hymnal version

Sounds of Home – Relish

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the August 4th edition of Sounds of Home!

The Tiller

I am a tiller of the soil, a farmer frank and plain;
I love my home, its life and toil, its fields and wooded lane.
There countless flowers are growing in beauty rich and rare;
Mine is the brooklet flowing, and mine the fragrant air.

I heard from youth the cheerful choirs of birds above the moor;
they taught me when my heart desires on wings of song to soar.
Behind the plow and harrow and ringing scythe I sing,
Till wood and valley narrow with cheerful echoes ring.

But when the busy day is spent, and sunset paints the west;
My mind refreshed, my heart content, midst lovèd ones I rest.
And in my home-life ever my spirit finds rebirth,
and I will change it never with any man on earth.

Sounds of Home – Fly

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the July 28th edition of Sounds of Home!

Come, Skylark

Come, skylark, sing to me your merry melody!
As daylight grows I long to hear you singing
as if with pure delight, above, far out of sight
a thousand little silver bells were ringing.

You roam not far and wide, a killer, eagle eyed;
not proud as peacocks, cunning as the raven,
but shy and simply dress up from your hidden nest
your flight goes straight and true from earth to heaven.

From dizzy heights again you to your nest descend
to mate and brood, your happiness and treasure.
You are wholeheartedly what you were meant to be
and therefore is your life so full of pleasure.

My bird of faith, you sing to me a song of spring
while winter’s snow is still upon the branches;
your ringing carol peals above the empty fields
proclaiming: springtime bright and warm advances!

Teach me your joyful song of hope, triumphant, strong,
that I, like you, may drive out doubt and sadness!
Teach me, like you, to see that life is victory,
that Lenten gloom must yield to Easter gladness!

Text: Chr. Richardt; trans. by S.D. Rodholm
Music: Joseph Glæser


Poems by Emily Dickinson

Bee! I’m expecting you!
Was saying Yesterday
To Somebody you know
That you were due —

The Frogs got Home last Week —
Are settled, and at work —
Birds, mostly back —
The Clover warm and thick —

You’ll get my Letter by
The seventeenth; Reply
Or better, be with me —
Yours, Fly.

****************************

The Butterfly in honored Dust
Assuredly will Lie
But none will pass the Catacomb
So chastened as the Fly –
