Lyrical Additions to Hymns
13 November 2019

Each of the following was initially written to help our church congregation engage with a particular theme or passage of Scripture while using the melodic framework of a hymn they were already familiar with. Feel free to use these freely with proper credit, and contact me to write or co-write.

Pentecost/Holy Spirit Verses for Doxology
Praise God who sent His only Son
Who rose but sends another One
“It’s good I leave that He may come”
Praise God the Spirit, now among!

Praise Him who came in tongues of light
Now tongues unknown are heard aright
Old guest of kings, now yours and mine
Praise He who lives and speaks inside!


Church Identity and/or Church Mission Verse for How Great Thou Art
Your very Church, on earth your image-bearer
Your bride betrothed, awaiting Your return
Until that day, we seek to be made like You
And bid the lost that they might turn and say
Then sings my soul…


Advent Verse for Here is Love (with Joel Limpic)
Here is love, a love incarnate
Christ the very Son of God
Word that made all things created
Now made flesh to dwell with us

For this King, prepare a highway;
In your heart, His place to dwell
Father’s glory now revealed in
Heaven’s gift, Emmanuel


Exodus/Passover Verse for Praise To The Lord The Almighty (with Joel Limpic)
Praise be to Christ who parts seas to deliver and save thee
Drowning His enemy, leading you onward to glory
Passed o’er in Him, spared from the judgment of sin
Children redeemed to be holy


Exodus/Passover Verse for Blessed Assurance (with Joel Limpic)
Promise to sinners: “Deliverance is nigh!”
Freedom for captives, darkness to light
Drawn out in power, showing Your might
Led through the water, into Your life
