ONCE TO EV'RY MAN AND NATION

Once to ev'ry man and nation
Comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth and falsehood,
For the good or evil side;
Some great cause, some great decision,
Off'ring each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever
'Twixt that darkness and that light. 


Then to side with truth is noble, When we share her wretched crust, Ere her cause bring fame and profit,And ’tis prosperous to be just; Then it is the brave man chooses While the coward stands aside. Till the multitude make virtue Of the faith they had denied.

 By the light of burning martyrs, Christ, Thy bleeding feet we track, Toiling up new Calv’ries ever With the cross that turns not back; New occasions teach new duties, Ancient values test our youth; They must upward still and onward, Who would keep abreast of truth.


 Tho’ the cause of evil prosper, Yet the truth alone is strong; Tho’ her portion be the scaffold, And upon the throne be wrong; Yet that scaffold sways the future,And, behind the dim unknown, Standeth God within the shadow, Keeping watch above His own.

James Russell Lowell --1819---1891

WONDER OF WONDERS
VERSE 1 
THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS SHE LOOKED ON HIS FACE 
THAT THIS LITTLE BOY SPOKE THE WORLDS IN THEIR PLACE 
THE STARS AND THE MOON, SHINNING BRIGHTLY ON THEM 
THE EARTH AND THE SUN WERE CREATED BY HIM 
VERSE2 
THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS SHE HEARD HIS SMALL CRY 
THAT THIS VOICE HAD THUNDERED ON MOUNT SINAI 
THE HAND THAT SHE HELD SO TENDERLY 
HAD MADE A DRY PATH THRU THE MIGHTY RED SEA 
VERSE 3 
THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS SHE LOOKED DOWN AND SMILED 
THAT HE WAS HER MAKER AS WELL AS HER CHILD 
HE CREATED THE WOMB THAT HAD GIVEN HIM BIRTH 
HE WAS GOD INCARNATE COME DOWN TO THE EARTH. 
VERSE 4
THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS A FATHER LOOKED ON 
IN ETERNITY PAST THIS WAS HIS SON 
HAD SENT HIM TO DIE ON CALVARY'S TREE 
AND THAT IS THE WONDER OF WONDERS TO ME 

CHORUS 
THE WONDER OF WONDERS OH HOW COULD IT BE 
THAT GOD BECAME FLESH AND WAS GIVEN FOR ME 
THE ALMIGHTY CAME DOWN AND WALKED AMONG MEN 
THE WONDER OF WONDERS HE DIED FOR MY SIN
THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS RECORDED BY THE INSPIRATIONS
