Strike, Strike at the root of penury
In my heart,
Give me the strength lightly to bear
My joys and sorrows.

Or bend my knees before insolent might.
Give me the strength to make my love
Fruitful in service.
Give me the strength to raise my mind
High above all daily trifles.

LET THY LOVE PLAY UPON MY VOICE
Let thy love play upon my voice
and rest on my silence.
Let it pass through my heart into all
My movements
Let thy love like stars shine in the
Darkness of my sleep and dawn in
My awakening.

THERE ARE NUMEROUS STRINGS
There are numerous strings in your flute
Let me add my own among them!
Then when you smite your chords,
My heart will break its silence,
And my heart will be one
With your song.
Amidst your numberless stars
Let me place my own little lamp.
In the dance of your festival of lights,
My heart will throb and my
Life will be one with your smile.

THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS
There shall be showers of blessings
This is the promise of love
There shall be seasons refreshing
Sent from the Saviour above.
Showers of blessings
Showers of blessings we need
Mercy drops round us are falling
But for the showers we plead
There shall be showers of blessings
Send them upon us O’ Lord
Grand to us now a refreshing
Come and now honour Thy Word
Showers of blessings
Showers of blessings we need
Mercy drops round us are falling
But for the showers we plead

We are gathering together unto Him

We are praising together unto Him
We are thanking together unto Him. (2)

I WILL SING TO MY GOD
O give thanks to the Lord for He is good (3)
Yet eternal is His love
I will sing to my God never ceasing
All my life I will tell of His wonders
He is the maker of all earth and heaven
Of the ocean and the seas and all they hold.
The Almighty is faithful forever
He is just to the poor and the outraged
It is He who gives bread to the hungry
Who delivers the captives from their chains.

it’s rich and varied heritage.

HEAVEN OF FREEDOM
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up
Into fragments by narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is lead forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action –
Into that Heaven of Freedom my Father, let my country awake.MATARAM
– Rabindranath Tagore
