All Souls: Hymns

Some powerful words from All Souls hymns that really spoke to me today:

Lord reign in me by Brenton Brown

Over all the earth, you reign on high,
Every mountain stream, every sunset sky.
But my one request, Lord, my only aim
Is that you'd reign in me today.

Lord, reign in me, reign in Your power;
Over all my dreams, in my darkest hour.
You are the Lord of all I am,
So won't You reign in me today.

Over every thought, over every word,
May my life reflect the beauty of my Lord;
Cause You mean more to me than any earthly thing.
So won't You reign in me today.

Lord, reign in me, reign in Your power;
Over all my dreams, in my darkest hour.
You are the Lord of all I am,
So won't You reign in me today.

When I was lost, you came and rescued me by Kate and Miles Simmonds

When I was lost, you came and rescued me;
Reached down into the pit and lifted me.
O Lord, such love,
I was as far from you as I could be.
You know all the things I’ve ever done,
But Jesus’ blood has cancelled every one.
O Lord, such grace, to qualify me as your own.

There is a new song in my mouth,
There is a deep cry in my heart,
A hymn of praise to Almighty God,
Hallelujah!
And now I stand firm on this Rock,
My life is hidden now with Christ in God.
The old has gone and the new has come,
Hallelujah! - Your love has lifted me.

Now I have come into your family,
For the Son of God has died for me.
Oh Lord, such peace,
I am as loved by you as I could be.
In the full assurance of your love
Now with every confidence we come.
Oh Lord, such joy
To know that you delight in me.

There is a new song in my mouth,
There is a deep cry in my heart,
A hymn of praise to Almighty God,
Hallelujah!
And now I stand firm on this Rock,
My life is hidden now with Christ in God.
The old has gone and the new has come,
Hallelujah! - Your love has lifted me.

Your word is a lamp unto my feet by Amy Grant

When I feel afraid, think I've lost my way,
Still you're there right beside me:
And nothing will I fear
As long as you are near.
Please be near me to the end.

My Jesus, my Saviour by Darlene Zscbech

My comfort, my shelter,
Tower of refuge and strength,
Let every breath - all that I am
Never cease to worship you.

A Study In Scarlet, Chapter 2 The Science of Deduction

I see that I have alluded above to his powers upon the violin. These were very remarkable, but as eccentric as all his other accomplishments. That he could play pieces, and difficult pieces, I knew well, because at my request he has played me some of Mendelssohn's Lieder, and other favourites. When left to himself, however, he would seldom produce any music or attempt any recognized air. Leaning back in his arm-chair of an evening, he would close his eyes and scrape carelessly at the fiddle which was thrown across his knee. Sometimes the chords were sonorous and melancholy. Occasionally they were fantastic and cheerful. Clearly they reflected the thoughts which possessed him, but whether the music aided those thoughts, or whether the playing was simply the result of a whim or fancy was more than I could determine. I might have rebelled against these exasperating solos had it not been that he usually terminated them by playing in quick succession a whole series of my favourite airs as a slight compensation for the trial upon my patience.
