See How Eden’s Children Fell – New Scottish Hymns Band

See How Eden’s Children Fell is a track from New Scottish Hymns Band’s album, Joy Will Follow.
Their releases show a desire to vary their sound.
Not contemporary pop, but certainly not traditional either.

From Death (Psalm 130) – Sunday Songs

From Death (Psalm 130) is the first released track from New Scottish Hymns Band’s soon to be released album, Joy Will Follow.
Psalm 130 seems to have attracted a bit of interest among contemporary musicians of late.

Union With Christ by New Scottish Hymns

Here’s another track from New Scottish Hymn’s recently released second album, We Shall All Be Changed.
For some reasons Union With Christ makes me think of EMU Music, maybe back in their Plainsong days.
Here’s a lyric video.

O What A Saviour – Sunday Songs

New Scottish will be releasing a second album of hymns in the next month or so.
O What A Saviour is a track from their self-titled first release.

The lyrics:
Lift your eyes to the Lord your god
Father of goodness and grace
All of your burdens and gifts of praise
Come lay them down in this place
For His arm is mighty and His love will endure
His plan is perfect, His victory is sure
And His anger is righteous but His grace is free
Oh what a saviour is He
Oh what a saviour is He
Lift your souls to the Lord your god
Maker of heaven and earth
Sun and moon bow before His throne
Praise Him for all He is worth
Lift your minds to the Lord your god
He will fulfill all your needs
Seek His wisdom, attend His words
Follow wherever He leads

Of The Father’s Love Begotten – Christmas Songs 2014 Day 15

Here’s Greg De Blieck and Ellyn Oliver in a just released New Scottish Hymns video singing Of The Father’s Love Begotten.
New Scottish are well worth checking out, either the album or have listen on youtube. There are scores available for their music at the website.

The lyrics:
Of the Father’s love begotten, ere the worlds began to be,
He is Alpha and Omega, He the source, the ending He,
Of the things that are, that have been,
And that future years shall see, evermore and evermore!
O that birth forever blessèd, when the virgin, full of grace,
By the Holy Ghost conceiving, bare the Savior of our race;
And the Babe, the world’s Redeemer,
First revealed His sacred face, evermore and evermore!
O ye heights of heaven adore Him; angel hosts, His praises sing;
Powers, dominions, bow before Him, and extol our God and King!
Let no tongue on earth be silent,
Every voice in concert sing, evermore and evermore!
He is found in human fashion, death and sorrow here to know,
That the race of Adam’s children doomed by law to endless woe,
May not henceforth die and perish
In the dreadful gulf below, evermore and evermore!
O ye heighue on earth be silent,
Every voice in concert sing, evermore and evermore!
Christ, to Thee with God the Father, and, O Holy Ghost, to Thee,
Hymn and chant with high thanksgiving, and unwearied praises be:
Honor, glory, and dominion,
And eternal victory, evermore and evermore!
