  • 317. What a friend we have in Jesus (start high)
  • 364. All the way my Saviour leads me.
Deerhurst Lux Eoi Abbot's Leigh 8.7.8.7.D.
  1. Abba, Father! we approach Thee
    In our Saviour's precious name;
    We, Thy children, here assembling,
    Access to Thy presence claim;
    From our sin His blood hath washed us:
    'Tis through Him our souls draw near,
    And Thy Spirit, too, hath taught us,
    Abba, Father! name so dear.
  2. Once as prodigals we wandered
    In our folly, far from Thee;
    But Thy grace, o'er sin abounding,
    Rescued us from misery:
    Thou Thy prodigals hast pardoned,
    Loved us with a Father's love;
    Welcomed us with joy o'erflowing,
    E'en to dwell with Thee above.
  3. Clothed in garments of salvation,
    At Thy table is our place;
    We rejoice, and Thou rejoicest,
    In the riches of Thy grace:
    It is meet, we hear Thee saying,
    We should merry be and glad;
    I have found My once lost children,
    Now they live who once were dead.
  4. Abba, Father! all adore Thee,
    All rejoice in heaven above;
    While in us they learn the wonders
    Of Thy wisdom, power and love;
    Soon, before Thy throne assembled,
    All Thy children shall proclaim,
    Glory, everlasting glory,
    Be to God and to the Lamb.
  5. James George Deck (1841)

  1. Abba, Father! we adore Thee,
    Humbly now our homage pay:
    'Tis Thy children's bliss to know Thee,
    Welcomed through the living way:
    This high honour we inherit,
    Thy free gift through Jesus' blood;
    God the Spirit, with our spirit,
    Witnesseth we're sons of God.

Deehurst Lux Eoi Abbot's Leigh 8.7.8.7.D.
  1. Abba, Father! we adore Thee,
    Humbly now our homage pay:
    'Tis Thy children's bliss to know Thee,
    Welcomed through the living way:
    This high honour we inherit,
    Thy free gift through Jesus' blood;
    God the Spirit, with our spirit,
    Witnesseth we're sons of God.
  2. Thine own purpose gave us being,
    When, in Christ, in that vast plan
    Thou in Christ didst choose Thy people
    E'en before the world began:
    O what love the Father bore us!
    O how precious in Thy sight!
    When Thou gav'st Thy Church to Jesus,
    Jesus, Son of Thy delight.
  3. Though our nature's fall in Adam
    Shut us wholly out from God,
    Thine eternal counsel brought us
    Nearer still, through Jesus' blood;
    For in Him we found redemption,
    Grace and glory in Thy Son;
    Oh, the height and depth of mercy!
    Christ and His redeemed are one.
  4. Hence, through all the changing seasons,
    Trouble, sickness, sorrow, woe,
    Nothing changeth God's affections,
    Love divine shall bring us through;
    Soon shall all Thy blood-bought children
    Round the throne their anthems raise,
    And, in songs of rich salvation,
    Shout to God's eternal praise.
  5. Robert Stephen Hawker

Richmond   C.M.
  1. A mind at perfect peace with God,
    Oh! what a word is this!
    A sinner reconciled through blood;
    This! this indeed is peace.
  2. By nature and by practice far,
    How very far from God!
    Yet now by grace brought nigh to Him.
    Through faith in Jesus' blood.
  3. So near, so very near to God,
    I cannot nearer be;
    For in the person of His Son
    I am as near as He.
  4. So dear, so very dear to God,
    More dear I cannot be;
    The love wherewith He loves the Son.
    Such is His love to me.
  5. Why should I ever careful be
    Since such a God is mine?

    My bread from heaven shall be;
    Thy testamental cup I take,
    And thus remember Thee.
  3. Gethsemane can I forget?
    Or there Thy conflict see,
    Thine agony and blood-like sweat,
    And not remember Thee?
  4. When to the Cross I turn mine eyes
    And rest on Calvary,
    O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,
    I must remember Thee.
  5. Remember Thee, and all Thy pains,
    And all Thy love to me;
    Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,
    Would I remember Thee.
  6. And when, O Lord, Thou com'st again
    And I Thy glory see,
    For ever, as the Lamb once slain,
    I will remember Thee.

  • 305. To Calvary Lord in spirit now
Eden Sacra   C.M.
  1. Alas! and did my Saviour bleed?
    And did my Sovereign die?
    Would He devote that sacred head
    For such a worm as I?
  2. Was it for crimes that I have done
    He groaned upon the tree?
    Amazing pity! Grace unknown!
    And love beyond degree.
  3. Well might the sun in darkness hide
    And shut his glories in,
    When the incarnate Maker died
    For man, His creature's sin.
  4. Thus might I hide my blushing face,
    While His dear Cross appears;
    Dissolve my heart in thankfullness,
    And Melt my eyes to tears.
    At the Cross! at the Cross! where I first saw the light,
    And the burden of my heart rolled away.
    It was there by faith I received my sight,
    And now I am happy all the day.

Whitchurch  8.8.8.8.D.
  1. A Debtor to mercy alone,
    Of covenant mercy I sing,
    Nor fear, with God's righteousness on,
    My person and offerings to bring.
    The terrors of law and of God
    With me can have nothing to do;
    My Saviour's obedience and blood
    Hide all my transgressions from view.
  2. The work which His goodness began
    The arm of His strength will complete;
    His promise is Yea and Amen,
    And never was forfeited yet.
    Things future, nor things that are now,
    Not all things below or above,
    Can make Him His purpose forego,
    Or sever my soul from His love.
  3. My name from the palms of His hands
    Eternity will not erase;
    Imprest on His heart, it remains
    In marks of indelible grace.
    Yes! I to the end shall endure,
    As sure as the earnest is given;
    More happy, but not more secure,
    The souls of the blessed in heaven.

  • 207. O God, our help in ages past
Evan   C.M.
  1. All that I was—my sin, my guilt,
    My death, was all my own;
    All that I am I owe to Thee,
    My gracious God, alone.
  2. The darkness of my former state,
    The bondage, all was mine;
    The light of life in which I walk,
    The liberty is Thine.
  3. Thy grace first made me feel my sin,
    And taught me to believe;
    Then, in believing, peace I found,
    And now in Christ I live.
  4. All that I am e'en here on earth,
    All that I hope to be,
    When Jesus comes and glory dawns,
    I owe, my God, to Thee
  5. Horatius Bonar (1845)

St. Theodulph   7.6.7.6.D.
  1. A Rock that stands for ever
    Is Christ my righteousness,
    And there I stand unfearing
    In everlasting bliss;
    No earthly thing is needful
    To this my life from heaven,
    And nought of love is worthy
    Save that which Christ has given.
  2. There is no condemnation,
    There is no hell for me,
    The torment and the fire
    Mine eyes shall never see;
    For me there is no sentence,
    For me death has no sting,
    Because the Lord who loves me
    Shall shield me with his wing.
  3. No angel and no devil,
    No throne, nor power, nor might:
    No love, no tribulation,
    No danger, fear, nor fight,
    No height, no depth, no creature
    That has been, or can be,
    Can drive me from Thy bosom
    Can sever me from Thee.
  4. My soul with joy upleapeth,
    Grief cannot linger there,
    She singeth high in glory
    Amid the sunshine fair;
    The Sun that shines upon me
    Is Jesus and His love;
    The fountain of my singing
    Is deep in heaven above.

    A dying Lamb at last.
  2. That tender heart that felt for all,
    For all its life-blood gave;
    It found on earth no resting-place,
    Save only in the grave.
  3. Such was our Lord, and shall we fear
    The cross with all its scorn?
    Or love a faithless, evil world,
    That wreathed His brow with thorn?
  4. Dead to the world with Him who died
    To win our hearts, our love,
    We, risen with our risen Head,
    In spirit dwell above.

  2. Thy love's a refuge ever nigh,
    Thy watchfullness a mountain high,
    Thy name a rock which winds above
    And waves below can never move.
  3. Thy faithfullness, for ever sure,
    Through endless ages shall endure;
    Thy perfect work shall ever prove
    The depth of Thine unceasing love.
  4. While all things change, Thou changest not,
    Forgetting ne'er, though oft forgot;
    Thy love, immutably the same,
    Displays the glory of Thy name.
  5. Lord, we would then rejoice and praise

    With hearts all full of praises
    To keep Thy blest command:
    By faith, our soul's rejoicing,
    To trace Thy path of love
    Through death's dark, angry billows
    Up to the throne above.
  2. Lord Jesus, we remember
    The travail of Thy soul,
    When, in Thy love's deep pity,
    The waves did o'er Thee roll;
    Baptized in death's cold waters,
    For us Thy blood was shed:
    For us Thou, Lord of Glory,
    Wast numbered with the dead.
  3. Oh, Lord, Thou now art risen,
    Thy travail all is o'er!
    For sin Thou once hast suffered,
    Thou liv'st to die no more;
    Sin, death, and hell are vanquished
    By Thee, the Church's Head;

Refuge   P.M.  
  1. Beneath the Cross of Jesus
    I fain would take my stand,
    The shadow of a mighty Rock
    Within a weary land;
    A home within the wilderness,
    A rest upon the way
    From the burning of the noontide heat
    And the burden of the day.
  2. O safe and happy shelter!
    O refuge tried and sweet!
    O trysting-place, where Heaven's love
    And Heaven's justice meet!
    As to the pilgrim patriarch
    That wondrous dream was given,
    So seems my Saviour's Cross to me
    A ladder up to heaven.
  3. Upon the Cross of Jesus,
    Mine eye at times can see
    The very dying form of One
    Who suffered there for me;
    And from my smitten heart with tears
    Two wonders I confess,
    The wonder of His glorious love,
    And my own worthlessness.
  4. I take the Cross of Jesus
    For my abiding place;
    I ask no other sunshine than
    The sunshine of His face;
    Content to let the world go by,
    To know no gain nor loss:
    My sinful self my only shame,
    My glory all the Cross.

  3. His love in time past forbids me to think

    Each sweet Ebenezer I have in review
    Confirms His good pleasure to help me quite through.
  4. Why should I complain of want or distress,
    Temptation or pain? He told me no less:
    The heirs of salvation, I know from His Word,
    Through much tribulation must follow their Lord.
  5. How bitter that cup no heart can conceive,
    Which Jesus drank up that sinners might live!
    His way was much rougher and darker than mine:
    Did Jesus thus suffer, and shall I repine?

  3. Dear Name! The Rock on which we build;
    Our shield and hiding-place;
    Our never-failing treasury, filled
    With boundless stores of grace.
  4. Jesus, our Saviour, Shepherd, Friend,
    Prophet, and Priest, and King;
    Our Lord, our Life, our Way, our End,
    Accept the praise we bring.
  5. Weak is the effort of our heart,
    And cold our warmest thought;
    But when we see Thee as Thou art
    We'll praise Thee as we ought.
  6. Till then we would Thy love proclaim
    With ev'ry fleeting breath;
    And triumph in that blessed Name
    Which quells the power of death.

    Danger and sorrow stand
    Round me on ev'ry hand;

    Soon will be overpast;
    I shall reach home at last;
    Heaven is my home.

    Sends me help when foes assail me,

    I shall then be well attended:
    This my Father knows.
  4. I shall then with joy behold Him,
    Face to face my Saviour see;

  2. I leave it all with Jesus, for He knows
    How to steal the bitter from life's woes;
    How to gild the tear-drop with His smile,
    Make the desert garden bloom awhile:
    When my weakness leaneth on His might
    All seems light.
    When my weakness leaneth on His might

  3. I leave it all with Jesus day by day;
    Faith can firmly trust Him, come what may:
    Hope has dropped her anchor, found her rest
    In the calm, sure haven of His breast;

    I knew not my danger, I felt not my load;
    Though friends spoke in rapture of Christ on the tree,
    JEHOVAH TSIDKENU was nothing to me.

    Yet thought not that my sins had nailed to the tree
    JEHOVAH TSIDKENU—'twas nothing to me.
  3. When free grace awoke me by light from on high,
    Then legal fears shook me, I trembled to die;
    No refuge, no safety in self could I see,
    JEHOVAH TSIDKENU my Saviour must be.
  4. My terrors all vanished before the sweet Name;

  1. In seasons of grief to my God I'll repair
    When my heart is o'erwhelmed with sorrow and care;
    From the ends of the earth to Thee will I cry,
    Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
    Higher than I, higher than I,
    Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
  2. When Satan, my foe, shall come in like a flood
    To drive my poor soul from the Fountain of good,
    I'll pray to the Saviour who meekly did die;
    Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
  3. And while as a stranger I sojourn below,
    Thy covenant blessing, Lord, freely bestow;
    In affliction's dark night to Thy throne let me fly,
    Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
  4. And when the last trumpet shall sound through the skies,
    And the dead in Christ Jesus immortal shall rise,
    With the ransomed I'll praise Him above yonder sky,
    Built firm on the Rock that is higher than I.

Surpassing   10.10.10.10.
  1. It passeth knowledge, that dear love of Thine,
    Lord Jesus, Saviour; yet this soul of mine
    Would of Thy love, in all its breadth and length,
    Its height and depth, its everlasting strength
    Know more and more.
  2. It passeth telling, that dear love of Thine,
    Lord Jesus Saviour; yet these lips of mine
    Would fain proclaim to sinners, far and near,
    A love which can remove all guilt and fear,
    And love beget.
  3. It passeth praises, that dear love of Thine,
    Lord Jesus, Saviour; yet this heart of mine
    Would sing that love, so full, so rich, so free,
    Which brings a rebel sinner, even me,
    Nigh unto God.
  4. But though I cannot sing, or tell, or know
    The fullness of Thy love while here below,
    My empty vessel I may freely bring;
    O Thou, who art of love the living spring,
    My vessel fill.
  5. Then fill me, O my Saviour, with Thy love!
    Lead, lead me to the living fount above;
    Thither may I in simple faith draw nigh,
    And never to another fountain fly,
    But unto Thee.
  6. And when, Lord Jesus, Thine own face I see,
    When at Thy lofty throne I bow the knee,
    Then of Thy love, in all its breadth and length,
    Its height and depth, its everlasting strength,
    My soul shall sing.

    That love, Thy love, in wondrous right,
    Hath placed me in its spotless light.

    Thou wilt this grace and love unfold,
    Till worlds on worlds and adoring see

    Hide me, O my Saviour, hide
    Till the storm of life is past;

    O receive my soul at last.
  2. Other refuge have I none;
    Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
    Leave, ah! leave me not alone,

    All my hope on Thee is stayed,
    All my help from Thee I bring;

    There, to an ocean's fullness,
    His mercy doth expand,

    My web of time He wove,
    And aye the dews of sorrow
    Were lustred with His love.
    I'll bless the hand that guided,
    I'll bless the heart that planned,

    Till we gain the heavenly shore
    Through "the love of Christ." Love of Christ, love of Christ,

  1. Prayer is the soul's sincere desire,
    Uttered or unexpressed,
    The motion of a hidden fire
    That trembles in the breast.
  2. Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
    The falling of a tear,

    That infant lips can try;
    Prayer, the sublimest strains that reach
    The Majesty on high.

    The Christian's native air;
    His watchword at the gates of death:
    He enters heaven with prayer.

    Which once here we knew,
    Now never more can charm us
    With such a goal in view.

    And praises loud ascending

    Cleansed their every stain;
    With rapture now they praise Him,
    The Lamb that once was slain.

    See Him with these eyes;
    Sing hallelujahs
    Triumphant in the skies:

    Without Thee we cannot go;
    Thou from cruel chains hast freed us,
    Thou hast laid the tyrant low;
    Let Thy presence
    Cheer us all our journey through.
  2. What a price Thy love has bought us;
    Saviour, what a love is Thine!
    Hitherto Thy power has brought us,

    Lord of Glory,
    Ever on Thy household shine.
  3. Through a desert, waste and cheerless,
    Though our destined journey lie,
    Rendered by Thy presence fearless
    We may every foe defy:
    Nought shall move us
    While we see Thee, Saviour, nigh.
  4. When we halt, no track discovering,
    Fearful lest we go astray,
    O'er our path Thy pillar hovering,

  5. When we hunger Thou wilt feed us;
    Manna shall our camp surround;
    Faint and thirsty, Thou wilt head us,
    Streams shall from the rock abound:
    Happy people!
    What a Saviour we have found!

    Who now upholds the mighty frame,
    And keeps it till the final hour.

    His glory fills all heaven above;
    Its blessedness to heaven He gives.

    He stands in heaven, their great High Priest,

  2. Above all heavens, at God's right hand,
    Now sits the King of Glory;
    The angels, by His favour, stand
    Before the throne of Glory;
    Swiftly they fly at His command
    To guard His own of every land,
    To keep the heirs of glory.
  3. Death and the grave confess the Lamb
    To be the King of Glory;
    The powers of darkness dread His Name,
    Creation shows His glory.
    He said: "E'er Abram was, I am;"
    Jesus is evermore the same,
    The Almighty King of Glory.
  4. Thrice happy who in Him believe,
    They soon will share His glory;
    Born of His Spirit, they receive;
    His Sacred pledge of glory;
    Taught by His Cross, for sin they grieve,
    He calls them brethren, and they cleave
    To Him, their hope of glory.

    Is passed in Him who bought us with His blood.
    The Lord is risen: we stand beyond the doom
    Of all our sin, through Jesus' empty tomb.

    The Lord is risen: beyond the judgment land
    In Him, in resurrection-life, we stand.
  3. The Lord is risen: we're now redeemed to God
    And tread the desert which His feet have trod.
    The Lord is risen: the sanctuary's our place
    Where now we dwell before the Father's face.
  4. The Lord is risen: the Lord is gone before;

  1. The night is wearing fast away,
    The glorious day is dawning,
    When Christ shall all His grace display
    The fair millennial morning.
    Gloomy and dark the night hath been,
    And long the way, dreary;
    And sad the weeping saints are seen,
    And faint, and worn, and weary.
  2. Ye mourning pilgrims, dry your tears,
    And hush each sigh of sorrow;
    The light of that bright morn appears,
    The long Sabbatic morrow.
    Lift up your heads! Behold from far
    A flood of splendour streaming!
    It is the bright and Morning Star
    In living lustre beaming.
  3. And see that star-like host around
    Of angel bands attending;
    Hark! hark! the trumpet's gladdening sound,
    'Mid shouts triumphant blending.
    He comes! The Bridegroom promised long;
    Go forth with joy to meet Him,
    And raise the new and nuptial song,
    In cheering strains to greet Him.

  1. There is a Name I love to hear,
    I love to speak its worth;
    It sounds like music in mine ear,
    The sweetest Name on earth.
  2. It tells me of a Saviour's love
    Who died to set me free;
    It tells me of His precious blood,
    The sinner's perfect plea.
  3. It tells me of a Father's smile
    Beaming upon His child;
    It cheers me through this "little while,"
    Through desert, waste, and wild.
  4. It bids my trembling soul rejoice,
    It dries each rising tear;
    It tells me, in a "still, small voice"
    To trust and never fear.
  5. Jesus! The Name I love so well,
    The Name I love to hear;
    No saint on earth its worth can tell,
    No heart conceive how dear.
  6. This Name shall shed its fragrance still
    Along life's thorny road,
    Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill
    That leads me up to God.
  7. And there, with all the blood-bought throng,
    From sin and sorrow free,

    Of Jesus love to me.

Resolution   P.M.  
  1. We're a pilgrim band in a stranger land
    Who are marching from Calvary,
    Where the wondrous Cross, with its gain and loss,
    Is the sum of our history:
    There we lost our stand in a death-doomed land,
    As children of wrath by the fall;
    There we gained a place as heirs of grace
    At the feast in the heavenly hall.
  2. We read our guilt in the blood that was spilt,
    And we weep o'er the crimson flow;
    But we joy in the grace of the unveiled face
    Of a Father here below:
    And as sons of God, redeemed by blood,
    We hasten from Egypt away;
    We cross the sand to the pleasant land
    And the joys of an endless day.
  3. We were children of night, kept far from the light,
    Enslaved by a cruel foe;
    But Jesus' pains broke the iron chains,
    And redeemed our souls from woe:
    Now as children of light we walk and we fight
    In a path of triumphant joy;
    For our strength is the Lord, whose Word is our sword,
    While faith is the shield we employ.
  4. Our home is with God, and our path has been trod
    By the faithful of ages all,
    And us He will bring, as on eagles' wing,
    To our place in the marriage hall:
    Then, then shall we sing, as the Bride of the King,
    Of the blood that has brought us so nigh,
    To bask in the blaze of the Ancient of Days,
    Enthroned above the sky.

  3. The Cross! It takes our guilt away;
    It holds the fainting spirit up;
    It cheers with hope the gloomy day
    And sweetens every bitter cup.
  4. It makes the coward spirit brave,
    And nerves the feeble arm to fight;
    It takes its terror from the grave,

  6. Sweet on His faithfullness to rest,
    Whose love can never end;
    Sweet on His covenant of grace

  7. Sweet, in the confidence of faith,
    To trust His firm decrees;
    Sweet to lie passive in His hands,
    And know no will but His.

  3. My sin, O the bliss of this glorious thought!
    My sin, not in part but the whole,

  4. For me be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live!
    If death's waters o'er me shall roll
    No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life,
    Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

    Have I hidden in Thee O Thou rock of my soul.

    When we smile upon our sorrow,
    And the storms have passed away.

    When our changed bodies glow,
    And we gain the full perfection
    Of the bliss begun below;
    When the life the flesh obscureth
    In each radiant form shall shine,
    And the joy that aye endureth
    Flashes forth in beams divine.
  3. Shall the memory be banished
    Of His kindness and His care,
    When the wants and woes are vanished,
    Which He loved to soothe and share?
    All the way by which He led us,
    All the grievings which He bore,
    All the patient love He taught us,
    Shall we think of them no more?
  4. We shall read the tender meaning
    Of the sorrows and alarms,
    As we trod the desert, leaning
    On His everlasting arms;
    And His rest will be the dearer
    When we think of weary ways,
    And His light will shine the clearer
    As we muse on cloudy days.

  2. When from the dead He raised His Son,
    And called Him to the sky,

  3. To an inheritance divine
    He taught our hearts to rise;
    'Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
    Unfading in the skies.
  4. Saints by the power of God are kept

    And weakness turn to might.

    That loves the Saviour's name,
    Your noblest powers exert
    To celebrate His fame;
    Tell all above and all below
    The debt of love to Him you owe.
  2. He left His heavenly crown,

    On wings of love came down,
    And wept, and bled, and died:
    What He endured no tongue can tell,
    To save our souls from death and hell.
  3. From the dark grave He rose—
    The mansion of the dead;
    And thence His mighty foes
    In glorious triumph led:
    Up through the sky the Conqueror rode,
    And reigns on high, the Saviour God.
  4. From thence He'll quickly come,
    His chariot will not stay,
    And bear His people home
    To realms of endless day:
    There shall we see His lovely face,
    And ever be in His embrace.

  3. O how shall I, whose native sphere

    Before the Ineffable appear,
    And on my naked spirit bear
    The uncreated beam?
  4. There is a way for man to rise
    To that sublime abode;
    An offering and a sacrifice,
    A Holy Spirit's energies,
    An Advocate with God.
