Deerhurst Lux Eoi Abbot's Leigh 8.7.8.7.D.
  1. Abba, Father! we approach Thee
    In our Savior'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 too the Lamb.

  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.

  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.

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?
    He watches o'er me night and day,
    And tells me "Mine is thine."

Eden Sacra   C.M.
  1. Alas! and did my Savior 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 thankfulness,
    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 Savior'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.

  1. "A little while!" Our Lord shall come.
    And we shall wander here no more;
    He'll take us to our Father's home,
    Where He for us has gone before,
    To dwell with Him, to see His face,
    And sing the glories of His grace.
  2. " A little while!" He'll come again:
    Let us the precious hours redeem;
    Our only grief to give Him pain,
    Our joy to serve and follow Him:
    Watching and ready may we be,
    As those who long their Lord to see.
  3. "A little while!" 'Twill soon be past:
    Why should we shun the shame and cross?
    O let us in His footsteps haste,
    Counting for Him all else but loss;
    Oh, how will recompense His smile
    The suffering of this little while!
  4. "A little while!" Come, Savior, come!
    For Thee Thy Bride has waited long:
    Oh, take Thy wearied pilgrims home
    To sing the new, eternal song,
    To see Thy glory, and to be
    In everything conformed to Thee.

Mainzer   L.M.
  1. Before the throne of God above
    I have a strong, a perfect plea,
    A great High Priest, whose name is Love,
    Who ever lives and pleads for me.
  2. When Satan tempts me to despair,
    Telling of evil yet within,
    Upward I look, and see Him there
    Who made an end of all my sin.
  3. Because the sinless Savior died
    My sinful soul is counted free;
    For God, the Just, is satisfied
    To look on Him and pardon me.
  4. Behold him there! the once slain Lamb!
    My perfect, spotless Righteousness,
    The great unchangeable I AM,
    The King of glory and of grace.
  5. One with Himself, I cannot die;
    My soul is purchased by His blood;
    My life is hid with Christ on high,
    With Christ, my Savior and my God.

Eden   C.M.
  1. Behold! a spotless Victim dies,
    My surety on the tree;
    The Lamb of God, the Sacrifice,
    He gave Himself for me.
  2. Whatever curse was mine He bore;
    The wormwood and the gall,
    There, in that lone mysterious hour,
    My cup—He drained it all.
  3. Lord Jesus! Thou, and none beside,
    Its bitterness could know,
    Nor other tell Thy joy's full tide
    That from that cup shall flow.
  4. Thine is the joy, but yet 'tis mine.
    'Tis ours as one with Thee;
    My joy flows from that grief of Thine;
    Thy death brings life to me!
  5. And while the ages roll along,
    This shall my glory be;
    And this the new and endless song,
    Thy love to us—to me.
    Alone, alone, He bore it all alone,
    He gave Himself to save his own
    He suffered bled and died
    Alone, alone.

Innocents   7.7.7.7.
  1. Brethren, let us join to bless
    Jesus Christ our joy and peace;
    Him, who bowed His head so low
    Underneath our load of woe.
  2. His the curse, the wounds, the gall,
    His the stripes—He bore them all;
    His the dying cry of pain
    When our sins He did sustain.
  3. He, the accepted Sacrifice,
    From the vanquished grave did rise;
    Free Himself, He set us free
    In His perfect liberty.
  4. Ransomed now, accepted, free,
    Safe from judgment, Lord, in Thee.
    We rejoice that God can bless
    All who do Thy name confess.
  5. Praise our God who willed it thus;
    Praise the Lamb who died for us;
    Praise the Father, through the Son,
    Who so vast a work hath done.

Listen RefugeW

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 Savior'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.

    Who gave for us His well-beloved Son,
    The gift of gifts, all other gifts in one;
    Blessed be God, our God!
  2. What will He not bestow?
    Who freely gave this mighty gift, unbought,
    Unmerited, unheaded, and unsought;
    What will He not bestow?
  3. He spared not His Son!
    'Tis this that silences each rising fear,
    'Tis this that bids the hard thought disappear;
    He spared not His Son!
  4. Who shall condemn us now?
    Since Christ has died, and risen, and gone above
    For us to plead at the right hand of Love;
    Who shall condemn us now?
  5. 'Tis God that justifies!
    Who shall recall His pardon or His grace?
    Or who the broken chain of guilt replace?
    'Tis God that justifies!
  6. The victory is ours!
    For us in might came forth the Mighty One,
    For us He fought the fight, the triumph won;
    The victory is ours!

    While Jesus wins the glorious fight
    On the Cross!

    On the Cross.
    He drinks for us the bitter cup
    On the Cross.
    The rocks do rend, the mountains quake.
    While Jesus doth atonement make,
    While Jesus suffers for our sake
    On the Cross.
  4. And now the mighty deed is done
    On the Cross!
    The battle fought, the vict'ry won

    'Tis finished now, the Conqueror cries,
    Then bows His sacred head and dies
    On the Cross.

    Purchased by the Savior's blood,
    How, that they might be forgiven,

    To prepare a home on high,
    Where all sorrows shall be ended,
    Where the saved shall never die.

    Darksome be, and dang'rous too,
    Christ, thy Guide, will bring thee through.

    Hath its hostile flag unfurled;
    Hold the Cross of Jesus fast,

    There's a heart so prone to sin;
    Christ, thy Lord, is over all,
    He'll not suffer thee to fall.
  5. Faint not, Christian! though thy God
    Smite thee with the chast'ning rod;
    Smite He must with Father's care,
    That He may His love declare.
  6. Faint not, Christian! Christ is near;
    Soon in glory He'll appear;
    Then shall end thy toil and strife,
    Death be swallowed up of life.

  1. Jesus, Lover of my soul,
    Let me to Thy bosom fly
    While the billows near me roll,
    While the tempest still is high:
    Hide me, O my Savior, hide
    Till the storm of life is past;
    Safe into the haven guide,
    O receive my soul at last.
  2. Other refuge have I none;
    Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
    Leave, ah! leave me not alone,
    Still support and comfort me.
    All my hope on Thee is stayed,
    All my help from Thee I bring;
    Cover my defenceless head
    With the shadow of Thy wing.
  3. Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
    Grace to pardon all my sin;
    Let the healing streams abound;
    Make and keep me pure within.
    Thou of life the fountain art;
    Freely let me take Thee;
    Spring Thou up within my heart
    Now and to eternity.

    Though earthly joys decrease,
    Though human friendships cease,
    Now I have lasting peace,
    Jesus is mine.
  2. Though I grow poor and old,
    Jesus is mine;
    He will my faith uphold,

  1. Now, in a song of grateful praise,
    To Christ my Lord my voice I'll raise;
    With all His saints I'll join to tell,
    My Jesus has done all things well.
  2. All worlds His glorious power confess
    His wisdom all His works express;
    But O, His love what tongue can tell?
    My Jesus has done all things well.
  3. How sovereign, wonderful and free
    Has been His love to sinful me!
    He plucked me from the jaws of hell;
    My Jesus has done all things well.
  4. I spurned His grace, I broke His laws,
    And yet He undertook my cause,
    To save me, though I did rebel;
    My Jesus has done all things well.
  5. Though many a fiery, flaming dart
    The tempter levels at my heart,
    With this I all his rage repel;
    My Jesus has done all things well.

    How vast a ransom paid!
    God's only well-beloved Son
    Upon the alter laid.
  2. The Father, in His willing love,
    Could spare Thee from His side;
    And Thou couldst stoop, to bear above,
    At such a cost, Thy Bride.
  3. While our full hearts in faith repose
    Upon Thy precious blood,

  1. O Christ, what burdens bowed Thy head!
    Our load was laid on Thee;
    Thou stoodest in the sinner's stead,
    Bear'st all my ill for me.
    A victim led, Thy blood was shed;
    Now there's no load for me.
  2. Death and the curse were in our cup,
    O Christ, 'twas full for Thee!
    But Thou has drained the last dark drop,
    'Tis empty now for me.
    That bitter cup, love drank it up;
    Now blessings' draught for me.
  3. The tempest's awful voice was heard;
    O Christ, it broke on Thee!
    Thy open bosom was my ward;
    It braved the storm for me.
    Thy form was scarred, Thy visage marred;
    Now cloudless peace for me.
  4. Jehovah bade His sword awake;
    O Christ, it woke' gainst Thee!
    Thy blood the flaming blade must slake,
    Thy heart its sheath must be;
    All for my sake my peace to make,
    Now sleeps that sword for me.
  5. The Holy One did hide His face;
    O Christ, 'twas hid from Thee!
    Dumb darkness wrapt Thy soul a space,
    The darkness due to me.
    But now that face of radiant grace
    Shines forth in light on me.
  6. For me, Lord Jesus, Thou hast died,
    And I have died in Thee;
    Thou'rt risen; my bands are all untied,
    And now Thou liv'st in me.
    When Thou dost come to take Thy Bride,

    Now none but Christ can satisfy,
    None other Name for me;

  2. I sighed for rest and happiness,
    I yearned for them, not Thee;
    But while I passed my Savior by
    His love laid hold on me.
  3. I tried the broken cisterns, Lord,
    But, ah! the waters failed;
    E'en as I stooped to drink they fled,
    And mocked me as I wailed.
  4. The pleasures lost I sadly mourned,

    Till grace the sightless eyes received

    Are all Thy ways to me,
    Whose dark benighted mind
    Was enmity with Thee.
    Yet now, subdued by sovereign grace,
    My spirit longs for Thine embrace.
  2. How precious are Thy thoughts
    That o'er my spirit roll!
    They swell beyond my faults,
    And captivate my soul:
    How great their sum, how high they rise,
    Can ne'er be known beneath the skies.
  3. Preserved by Jesus, when
    My feet made haste to hell!
    And there should I have gone,
    But Thou dost all things well:
    Thy love was great, Thy mercy free,
    Which from the pit delivered me.
  4. Before Thy hands had made
    The sun to rule the day,
    Or earth's foundation laid,
    Or fashioned Adam's clay,

    The streams of love I trace
    Up to the fountain, God,
    And in His sovereign counsels see
    Eternal thoughts of love to me.

    Look off unto Jesus and sorrow no more;
    The light of His countenance shineth so bright,
    That on earth, as in heaven, there need be no night.
  2. Looking off unto Jesus, my eyes cannot see
    The troubles and dangers that throng around me;
    They cannot be blinded with sorrowful tears,
    They cannot be shadowed with unbelief fears.
  3. Looking off unto Jesus my spirit is blest;
    In the world I have turmoil, in Him I have rest;
    The sea of my life all about me may roar;

  4. Looking off unto Jesus I go not astray;

    The path may seem dark as He leads me along,
    But following Jesus, I cannot go wrong.
  5. Looking off unto Jesus my heart cannot fear,
    Its trembling is still when I see Jesus near;
    I know that His power my safeguard will be,
    For, "Why are you troubled?" He saith unto me.
  6. Soon, soon shall I know the full beauty and grace
    Of Jesus, my Lord, when I stand face to face;
    I shall know how His love went before me each day,
    And wonder that ever my eyes turned away.

    I stand upon His merit;
    I know no other stand,
    Not e'en where glory dwelleth
    In Immanuel's land.

    For "the love of Christ."
    Jesus only shall we know,
    And our love to all shall flow
    In His blood-bought Church below,
    For "the love of Christ." Love of Christ, love of Christ,
    We now love all Christ-like ones
    For "the love of Christ."
  4. Now we live and walk by faith
    Through "the love of Christ:"
    We can triumph over death,
    One in life with Christ.
    Rooted, settled, knowing more,
    Depths and heights of love explore,
    Till we gain the heavenly shore
    Through "the love of Christ." Love of Christ, love of Christ,
    When He comes we then shall know
    All "the love of Christ."

Hiding in Thee   11.11.11.11.
  1. O what shall we feel in Thy presence when first
    The visions of glory upon us shall burst!
    Since now our soul longeth and seeketh for Thee;
    O when, blessed Savior, Thy face shall we see?
  2. That face, once so marred, we shall gaze on at length,
    And fearless behold, as the sun in his strength;
    Those eyes, flames of fire, that so searching we prove,
    Shall beam on us then inexpressible love.
  3. Thy voice, like great waters, how calmly our soul
    Shall hear in the glory its deep waters roll;
    Though now it rebukes us and humbles our pride,
    It shall speak only love to Thy glorified Bride.
  4. O Thou who this world as a lone pilgrim trod,
    Thy Father our Father, Thy God is our God;
    To Thee we behold the bright seraphim bow;
    Lord Jesus, what glory doth rest on Thee now!
  5. Thy Spirit has shown God's deep purpose to be
    To empty, then fill us with glory like Thee;
    And now Thou dost wait—Thy full joy to impart,
    For that day of espousals—the joy of Thy heart.
  6. Now moment by moment, to answer our needs,
    Thy blood, holy Savior, in righteousness pleads;
    And sheltered by that, how serene and how calm
    Our souls on Thy bosom are shielded from harm.
  7. We see Thee, Lord Jesus, with glory now crowned,
    And waiting Thy coming, in peace would be found;
    The visions of glory have turned all to dross;
    For Thee give us grace to count all things but loss.

    I love to speak its worth;
    It sounds like music in mine ear,
    The sweetest Name on earth.
  2. It tells me of a Savior'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

    What a balm for the weary!

    at His feet every care:
    What a balm for the weary!
    O how sweet to be there.
  3. "Tis the blessed hour of prayer
    when the tempted and tried,

    This is what declares indeed
    That God is love.
  6. Not for those who ever loved Him
    Did the Lord of glory die;
    Pity to the wretched moved Him:
    Who that hears it will deny
    That God is love?
  7. 'Tis a truth: away and spread it;
    Spread the tidings far and near;
    O may sinners give it credit,
    And be joyful when they hear
    That God is love.

    Feeds me with the living bread:
    Though my weary steps may falter,
    And my soul athirst may be,
    Gushing from the rock before me,
    Lo! a spring of joy I see.
  3. All the way my Savior, leads me;
    O the fulness of His love!
    Perfect rest to me is promised

    Wings its flight to realms of day,
    This my song through endless ages,
    Jesus led me all the way.

    Died He for me who caused His pain?
    For me who Him to death pursued?
    Amazing love! How can it be
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
  2. 'Tis mystery all! the Immortal dies;
    Who can explore His strange design?
    In vain the first-born seraph tries
    To sound the depths of love divine;
    'Tis mercy all! let earth adore,
    Let angel minds inquire no more.
  3. He left His Father's throne above,
    So free, so infinite His grace;
    Emptied Himself of all but love,
    And bled for Adam's helpless race;
    'Tis mercy all, immense and free;
    For, O my God, it found out me.
  4. Long my imprisoned spirit lay
    Fast bound in sin and nature's night;
    Thine eye diffused a quickening ray—

    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
  5. No condemnation now I dread;
    Jesus, and all in Him, is mine,
    Alive in Him, my living Head,
    And clothed in righteousness divine,
    Bold I approach the eternal throne,
    And claim the crown, through Christ, my own.

    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 Savior 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.

    Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle;

  1. Majestic sweetness sits enthroned.
    Upon the Savior's brow;
    His head with radiant glories crowned,
    His lips with grace o'erflow.
  2. No mortal can with Him compare
    Among the sons of men;
    Fairer is He than all the fair
    That fill the heavenly train.
  3. He saw me plunged in deep distress,
    He came to my relief;
    For me He bore the shameful cross,
    And carried all my grief.
  4. To Him I owe my life and breath,
    And all the joys I have;
    He makes me triumph over death,
    He saves me from the grave.
  5. Since from His bounty I receive
    Such proofs of love divine,

    Of unseen things above.
    Of Jesus and His glory,
    Of Jesus and His love!
    I love to tell the story
    Because I know it’s true!
    It satisfies my longings
    As nothing else would do.
    I love to tell the story!
    Twill be my theme in glory
    To tell the old, old story
    Of Jesus and His love.
  2. I love to tell the story,
    More wonderful it seems
    Than all the golden fancies
    Of all our golden dreams;
    I love to tell the story!
    It did so much for me!
    And that is just the reason
    I tell it now to thee
  3. I love to tell the story!
    ’Tis pleasant to repeat
    What seems, each time I tell it,
    More wonderfully sweet.
    I love to tell the story!
    For some have never heard
    The message of salvation
    From God’s own Holy Word.
  4. I love to tell the story!
    For those who know it best
    Seem hungering and thirsting
    To hear it, like the rest;
    And when in scenes of glory
    I sing the new, new song,
    ’Twill be the old, old story
    That l have loved so long.

  1. I must needs go home by the way of the cross,
    There’s no other way but this;
    I shall ne’er get sight of the gates of light
    lf the way of the cross I miss.
    The way of the cross leads home,
    The way of the cross leads home,
    It is sweet to know, as I onward go,
    The way of the cross leads home.
  2. I must needs go on in the blood-sprinkled way,
    The path that the Savior trod,
    If I ever climb to the heights sublime,
    Where the soul is at home with God.
  3. Then I bid farewell to the way of the world,
    To walk in it nevermore;
    For my Lord says, "Come," and I seek my home
    Where He waits at the open door.

  1. I will sing the wondrous story
    Of the Christ who died for me;
    How He left His home in glory,
    For the cross of Calvary.
    Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
    Of the Christ who died for me;
    Sing it with the saints in glory
    Gathered by the crystal sea.
  2. I was lost but Jesus found me,
    Found the sheep that went astray;
    Threw His loving arms around me,
    Drew me back into His way.
  3. I was bruised, but Jesus healed me,
    Faint was I from many a fall;
    Sight was gone and fears possessed me
    But He freed me from them all.
  4. Days of darkness still come o’er me;
    Sorrow’s path I often tread;
    But the Savior still is with me,
    By His hand I’m safely led.
  5. He will keep me till the river
    Roll its waters at my feet;
    Then He’ll bear me safely over,
    Where the loved ones I shall meet.

  1. If I gained the world, but lost the Savior,
    Were my life worth living for a day
    Could my yearning heart find rest and comfort
    In the things that soon must pass away
    If I gained the world, but lost the Savior,
    Would my gain be worth the life—long strife
    Are all earthly pleasures worth comparing
    For a moment with a Christ—filled life
  2. Had I wealth and love in fullest measure,
    And a name revered both far and near,
    Yet no hope beyond, no harbour waiting,
    Where my storm-tossed vessel I could steer;
    If I gained the world but lost the Savior
    Who endured the Cross and died for me,
    Could then all the world afford a refuge,
    Whither, in my anguish, I might flee
  3. O, what emptiness without the Savior,
    ’Mid the sins and sorrows here below!
    And eternity, how dark without Him
    Only night and tears and endless woe!
    What, though I might live without the Savior,
    When I come to die, how would it be
    O to face the valley’s gloom without Him!
    And without Him all eternity!
  4. O the joy of having all in Jesus!
    What a balm the broken heart to heal!
    Ne’er a sin so great, but He’ll forgive it,
    Nor a sorrow that He does not feel!
    If I have but Jesus, only Jesus,
    Nothing else in all the world beside
    O then everything is mine in Jesus;
    For my needs and more He will provide.
Anna Olander (1861-1939)

  1. It was alone the Savior prayed
    In dark Gethsemane;
    Alone He drained the bitter cup,
    And suffered on the tree.
    Alone, alone, He bore it all alone,
    He gave Himself to save His own;
    He suffered, bled and died alone, alone.
  2. It was alone the Savior stood
    In Pilate’s judgment hall;
    Alone the crown of thorns He bore,
    Forsaken there by all.
  3. Alone upon the Cross He hung
    That others He might save;
    Forsaken then by God Himself,
    Alone His life He gave.
  4. Can you reject such matchless love
    Can you His claim disown
    Commit your soul in faith to Him
    Who bore your guilt alone.
Ben H. Price

  1. I’ve wandered far away from God,
    Now I’m coming home;
    The paths of sin too long I’ve trod,
    Lord, I’m coming home.
    Coming home, coming home,
    Never more to roam;
    Open wide Thine arms of love,
    Lord, I ’m coming home.
  2. I’ve wasted many precious years,
    Now I’m coming home;
    I now repent with bitter tears,
    Lord, I’m coming home.
  3. I’m tired of sin and straying, Lord,
    Now I’m coming home;
    I’ll trust Thy love, believe Thy Word,
    Lord, I'm coming home.
William J. Kirkpatrick (1838-1921)

  1. On a hill far away
    Stood an old rugged cross,
    The emblem of suffering and shame;
    And I love that old cross
    Where the dearest and best
    For a world of lost sinners was slain.
    So I’ll cherish the old ragged cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down;
    I will cling to the old rugged cross
    And exchange it some day for a crown.
  2. O, the old rugged cross,
    So despised by the world,
    Has a wondrous attraction for me;
    For the dear Lamb of God
    Left His glory above
    To bear it to dark Calvary.
  3. In the old rugged cross,
    Stained with blood so divine,
    A wondrous beauty I see;
    For ’twas on that old cross
    Jesus suffered and died
    To pardon and sanctify me.
  4. To the old rugged cross
    I will ever be true,
    Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
    Then He’ll call me some day
    To my home far away,
    Where His glory for ever I’ll share.

  1. Since Christ my soul from sin set free,
    This world has been a heaven to me;

    ’Tis heaven my Jesus here to know.
    O hallelujah, yes, ’tis heaven,
    Tis heaven to know my sins forgiven;
    On land or sea, what matters where,

    Why should we linger and heed not His mercies
    Mercies for you and for me.

    Bleeding in anguish and pain;

    Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
    That, on the cross, my burden. gladly bearing,
    He bled and died to take away-my sin.
  4. When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
    And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart;
    Then I shall bow in humble adoration
    And there proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"

  1. O worship the King all-glorious above,
    O gratefully sing His power and His love;
    Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
    Pavilioned in splendour and girded with praise.
  2. O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,
    Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space;
    His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form
    And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.
  3. The earth, with its store of wonders untold,
    Almighty, Thy power hath founded of old;
    Hath 'stablished it fast by a changeless decree,
    And round it hath cast, like a mantle, the sea.
  4. Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
    It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
    It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
    And sweetly distils in the dew and the rain.
  5. Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
    In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;
    Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end!
    Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.
Robert Grant (1779-1838)

  1. Who is He in yonder stall
    At whose feet the shepherds fall?
    Tis the Lord! O wondrous story!
    Tis the Lord, the King of glory!
    At His feet we humbly fall;
    Crown Him! crown Him, Lord of all!
  2. Who is He in deep distress,
    Fasting in the wilderness?
  3. Who is He to whom they bring
    All the sick and sorrowing?
  4. Who is He who stands and weeps
    At the grave where Lazarus sleeps?
  5. Who is He the gathering throng
    Greet with loud triumphant song?
  6. Lo! at midnight, who is He
    Prays in dark Gethsemane?
  7. Who is He on yonder tree
    Dies in grief and agony?
  8. Who is He who from the grave
    Comes to heal and help and save?
  9. Who is He who from the throne
    Rules through all the worlds alone?

  1. A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
    A wonderful Savior to me;
    He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
    Where rivers of pleasure I see.
    He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
    That shadows a dry thirsty land;
    He hideth my life in the depths of His love
    And covers me there with His hand,
    And covers me there with His hand.
  2. A wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord,
    He taketh my burden away;
    He holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved,
    He giveth me strength as my day.
  3. With numberless blessings each moment He crowns
    And, filled with His fullness divine,
    I sing in my rapture, "O glory to God,
    For such a Redeemer as mine!"
  4. When clothed in His brightness transported I rise
    To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
    His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,
    I’ll shout with the millions on high.

    I once was lost, but now am found;

  2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear,
    The hour I first believed!
  3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
    I have already come;
    ’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
    And grace will lead me home.

    Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
    Leave to thy God to order and provide,
    In every change He faithful will remain.
    Be still, my soul! thy best, thy heavenly Friend
    Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
  2. Be still, my soul! thy God doth undertake
    To guide the future as He has the past;
    Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake,

    His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.
  3. Be still, my soul! when dearest friends depart,
    And all is darkened in the vale of tears,
    Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
    Who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
    Be still, my soul! thy Giver can repay,
    From His own fullness, all He takes away.
  4. Be still, my soul! the hour is hastening on
    When we shall be forever with the Lord,
    When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,

    Is not thine a captured heart?
    Chief among ten thousand own Him,

  2. Idols once they won thee, charmed thee,
    Lovely things of time and sense;

    Honeyed lest thou turn thee hence.
  3. What has stripped the seeming beauty
    From the idols of the earth?
    Not the sense of right or duty
    But the sight of peerless worth.
  4. Not the crushing of those idols
    With its bitter void and smart,
    But the beaming of His beauty,
    The unveiling of His heart.
  5. Who extinguishes their taper
    Till they hail the rising sun?
    Who discards the garb of winter
    Till the summer has begun?

    ’Tis the heart that wept with Mary,

  1. I know not why God’s wondrous grace,
    To me He hath made known,
    Nor why - unworthy of such love
    Redeemed me for His own.
    But "I know whom I have believed
    And am persuaded that He is able
    To keep that which I’ve committed
    Unto Him against that day.”
  2. I know not how this saving faith
    To me He did impart,
    Nor how believing in His Word,
    Wrought peace within my heart.
  3. I know not how the Spirit moves
    Convincing men of sin,
    Revealing Jesus through the Word,
    Creating faith in Him.
  4. I know not what of good or ill
    May be reserved for me,
    Of weary ways or golden days
    Before His face I see.
  5. I know not when my Lord shall come,

  1. In shady green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
    God leads His dear children along;
    Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,
    God leads His dear children along.
    Some through the waters, some through the flood,
    Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
    Some through great sorrow but God gives a song
    In the night season and all the day long.
  2. Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
    God leads His dear children along;
    Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
    God leads His dear children along.
  3. Though sorrows befall us and Satan oppose,
    God leads His dear children along;
    Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
    God leads His dear children along.

    I’d rather be His than have riches untold;
    I’d rather have Jesus than houses or land,
    I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand.
    Than to be the king of a vast domain
    Or be held in sin’s dread sway.
    I’d rather have Jesus than anything
    This world affords today.
  2. I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause;
    I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause;
    I'd rather have Jesus than world-wide fame,
    I’d rather be true to His holy name.

    The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see,
    All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole;
    In sorrow He’s my comfort,
    In trouble He’s my stay;
    He tells me every care on Him to roll
    He’s the Lily of the Valley,
    The Bright and Morning Star;
    He's the fairest of ten thousand to mv soul.
    In sorrow He’s my comfort,

    In temptation He's my strong and mighty tower;
    I’ve all for Him forsaken, I’ve all my idols torn
    From my heart and now He keeps me by His power.
    Though all the world forsake me,
    And Satan tempt me sore,
    Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal;
    He’s the Lily of the Valley,
    The Bright and Morning Star;
    He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
  3. He’ll never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
    While I live by faith, and do His blessed will;
    A wall of fire about me, I’ve nothing now to fear:
    With His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
    Then sweeping up to glory
    I’ll see His blessed face,
    Where rivers of delight shall ever roll;
    He’s the Lily of the Valley,
    The Bright and Morning Star;
    He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

    Till my ruptured soul shall find
    Rest beyond the river:

    Love and mercy found me;
    There the Bright and Morning Star
    Shed His beams around me.
  3. Near the cross, O Lamb of God,
    Bring its scenes before me;
    Help me walk from day to day,

    Till I reach the golden strand,

    Safe into the haven guide,

    With the shadow of Thy wing.

    Grace to cover all my sin;
    Let the healing streams abound;

    Since I know, as now I know,
    I am His, and He is mine.
  3. Things that once were wild alarms
    Cannot now disturb my rest;
    Closed in everlasting arms,
    Pillowed on the loving breast.
    O to lie for ever here,
    Doubt and care and self resign,
    While He whispers in my ear,
    I am His, and He is mine!

    Who the Lord and me shall part?
    Ah, with what a rest of bliss

    And myrrh their texture fills;
    Its fragrance reaches this heart of mine,
    With joy my being thrills.
    Out of the ivory palaces
    Into a world of woe,
    Only His great eternal love
    Made my Savior go.
  2. His life had also its sorrow sore,
    For aloes had a part;
    And when I think of the cross He bore,
    My eyes with tear-drops start.
  3. His garments too were in cassia dipped,
    With healing in a touch;
    Each time my feet in some sin have slipped,
    He took me from its clutch.

    To open wide the door;
    And I shall enter my heavenly home,
    To dwell for evermore.

    Not a grief nor a loss,
    Not a frown nor a cross,
    But is blest if we mist and obey.
  4. But we never can prove
    The delights of His love
    Until all on the altar we lay;
    For the favour He shows
    And the joy He bestows,
    Are for them who will trust and obey.
  5. Then in fellowship sweet
    We will sit at His feet,
    Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
    What He says we will do,
    Where He sends we will go,
    Never fear, only trust and obey.

  1. Must I go, and empty-handed?
    Thus my blest Redeemer meet?
    Not one day of service give Him,
    Lay no trophy at His feet?
    Must I go and empty-handed?
    Must I meet my Savior so?
    Not one soul with which to greet Him?
    Must I empty-handed go?
  2. Not at death I shrink or falter,
    For my Savior saves me now;
    But to meet Him empty-handed!
    Thought of that now clouds my brow.
  3. O the years of sinning wasted,
    Could I but recall them now,
    I would give them to my Savior;
    To His will I’d gladly bow.
  4. O, ye saints! arouse; be earnest!
    Up and work while yet ’tis day,
    Ere the night of death o’ertake you!
    Strive for souls while yet you may.

  1. Down from the glory the Savior came,
    Down to the cross and the death of shame;
    Gazing in wonder I there exclaim,
    Jesus died for me.
    Jesus died for me; Jesus died for me;
    This is my boast, and this my song,
    Jesus died for me.
  2. There as my Surety He firmly stood,
    Paid for my ransom His precious blood;
    Died for my sin, to bring me to God,
    Jesus died for me.
  3. Now in the Gospel He sends to thee
    News of salvation, and pardon free;
    Whoso believeth, his song shall be

New Version:
  1. A robe of white, a crown of gold,
    A harp, a home, a mansion fair,
    A victor's crown, and joys untold
    Are mine when I get there.
    For Jesus is my Savior,
    He washed my sins away,
    He paid my debt on Calvary's mountain;
    I'm happy in His dying love,
    I'm singing every day,
    I'm living, yes I'm living, at the fountain!
Original Version:
("Marching on in the light of God," Chorus, Robert Johnson 1887)
  1. A robe of white, a crown of gold,
    A harp, a home, a mansion fair,
    A victor's palm, a joy untold,
    Are mine when I get there.
    For Jesus is my Savior,
    He's washed my sins away,
    Paid my debt on Calvary's mountain;
    Happy in His dying love,
    Singing all the day,
    I'm living, yes I'm living in the fountain.
243
  1. I am so glad that our Father in heaven
    Tells of His love in the Book He has given;
    Wonderful things in the Bible I see:
    This is the dearest that Jesus loves me.
    I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
    Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me.
    I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
    Jesus loves even me.
  2. Though I forget Him and wander away,
    Still He doth love me wherever I stray;
    Back to His dear loving arms would I flee,
    When I remember that Jesus loves me.
  3. O, if there's only one song I can sing
    When in His beauty I see the great King,
    This shall my song in eternity be:
    "O what a wonder that Jesus loves me."
244
  1. I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart,
    Down in my heart, down in my heart;
    I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart,
    Down in my heart to stay.
    And I'm so happy, so very happy,
    I have the love of Jesus in my heart,
    And I'm so happy, so very happy,
    I have the love of Jesus in my heart.
  2. I've got the peace that passeth understanding...
  3. I've got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus...
  4. For there is therefore now no condemnation...
245
  1. Jesus loves me! this I know,
    For the Bible tells me so;
    Little ones to Him belong,
    They are weak, but He is strong.
    Yes, Jesus loves me!
    Yes, Jesus loves me!
    Yes, Jesus loves me!
    The Bible tells me so.
  2. Jesus loves me! He who died,
    Heaven's gate to open wide;
    He will wash away my sin,
    Let His little child come in.
  3. Jesus loves me! He will stay
    Close beside me all the way;
    If I trust Him, when I die
    He will take me home on high.
246
  1. My God is so great,
    So strong and so mighty,
    There's nothing my God cannot do.
    My God is so great,
    So strong and so mighty,
    There's nothing my God cannot do.
    The mountains are His, the rivers are His,
    The stars are His handiwork, too.
    My God is so great,
    So strong and so mighty,
    There's nothing my God cannot do, for you!
247
  1. I stand amazed in the presence
    Of Jesus the Nazarene.
    And wonder how He could love me,
    A sinner, condemned, unclean.
    How marvelous, how wonderful,
    And my song shall ever be,
    How marvelous, how wonderful,
    Is my Savior's love for me.
  2. He took my sins and my sorrows,
    He made them His very own;
    He bore the burden to Calvary,
    And suffered, and died alone.

  1. I cannot tell why He, whom angels worship
    Should set His love upon the sons of men,
    Or why, as Shepherd, He should seek the wanderers,
    To bring them back, they know not how or when.
    But this I know, that He was born of Mary,
    When Bethlehem’s manger was His only home,
    And that He lived at Nazareth and laboured,
    And so the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is come.
  2. I cannot tell how silently He suffered,
    As with His peace He graced this place of tears,
    Or how His heart upon the cross was broken,
    The crown of pain to three and thirty years.
    But this I know, He heals the broken—hearted,
    And stays our sin, and calms our lurking fear,
    And lifts the burden from the heavy laden,
    For yet the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is here.
  3. I cannot tell how He will win the nations,
    How He will claim His earthly heritage,
    How satisfy the needs and aspirations
    Of east and west, of sinner and of sage.
    But this I know, all flesh shall see His glory,
    And He shall reap the harvest He has sown,
    And some glad day His sun shall shine in splendour
    When He the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is known.
  4. I cannot tell how all the lands shall worship,
    When, at His bidding, every storm is stilled,
    Or who can say how great the jubilation
    When all the hearts of men with love are filled.
    But this I know, the skies will thrill with rapture,
    And myriad, myriad human voices sing,
    And earth to heaven, and heaven to earth, will answer
    At last the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is King.

  1. On Calvary’s brow my Saviour died,
    ’Twas there my Lord was crucified.
    ’Twas on the Cross He bled for me
    And purchased there my pardon free.
    O Calvary! dark Calvary!
    Where Jesus shed His blood for me,
    O Calvary! blest Calvary!
    ’Twas there my Saviour died for me.
  2. ’Mid rending rocks and darkening skies,
    My Saviour bows His head and dies;
    The opening veil reveals the way
    To heaven's joys and endless day.

    That Thou shouldst give Thy life for me,
    To bear the Cross and agony

  1. The love of God is greater far
    Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
    It goes beyond the highest star,
    And reaches where all mortals dwell;
    The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
    God gave His Son to win;
    His erring child He reconciled,
    And pardoned from his sin.
    O, love of God, how rich and pure!
    How measureless and strong!
    It shall for evermore endure,
    The saints’ and angels’ song.
  2. When hoary time shall pass away,
    And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall;
    When men who here refuse to pray,
    On rocks and hills and mountains call;
    God’s love, so sure, shall still endure,
    All measureless and strong;
    Redeeming grace to Adam’s race,
    The saints and angels song.
  3. Could we with ink the ocean fill
    And were the skies of parchment made;
    Were every stalk on earth a quill,
    And every man a scribe by trade;
    To write the love of God above
    Would drain the ocean dry;
    Nor could the scroll contain the whole.
    Though stretched from sky to sky.

  1. It pays to serve Jesus, I speak from my heart,
    He’ll always be with us, if we do our part,
    There’s naught in this wide world can pleasure afford;
    There’s peace and contentment in serving the Lord.
    I love Him for better than in days of yore,
    I’ll serve Him more truly than ever before,
    I’ll do as He bids me whatever the cost,
    I’ll be a true soldier, I’ll die at my post.
  2. And oft when I’m tempted to turn from the track,
    I think of my Savior, my mind wanders back
    To the place where they nailed Him on Calvary’s tree.
    I hear a voice saying, "I suffered for thee."
  3. A place I remember where I was set free,
    T’was there I found pardon, ’twas heaven to me;
    There Jesus spoke sweetly to my weary soul,
    My sins were forgiven, He made my heart whole.
  4. How rich is the blessing the world cannot give,
    I’m satisfied fully for Jesus to live;
    Though friends may forsake me and trials arise,
    I’m trusting in Jesus, His love never dies.
  5. There’s no one like Jesus can cheer me today,
    His love and His kindness can ne’er fade away;
    In winter, in summer, in sunshine and rain,
    His love and affection are always the same.
  6. Will you have this blessing that Jesus bestows,
    A full, free salvation from sin’s bitter throes?
    O sinner, poor sinner, to Calvary flee,
    The blood of my Savior was shed there for thee.

    With Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm.
  2. Though dark be my way, since He is my Guide,
    'Tis mine to obey, 'tis His to provide;
    Though cisterns be broken, and creatures all fail,
    The Word He has spoken shall surely prevail.
  3. His love in time past forbids me to think
    He'll leave me at last in trouble to sink;
    Each sweet Ebenezer I have in review,
    Confirms His good pleasure to help me quite through.
  4. Determined to save, He watched o'er my path,
    When Satan's blind slave, I sported with death;
    And can He have taught me to trust in His Name,
    And thus far have brought me, to put me to shame?
  5. 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.
  6. How bitter that cup, no heart can conceive,
    Which He drank quite up, that sinners might live!
    His way was much rougher, and darker than mine;
    Did Jesus thus suffer, and shall I repine?
  7. Since all that I meet shall work for my good,
    The bitter is sweet, the medicine is food;
    Though painful at present, wilt cease before long,
    And then, O! how pleasant, the conqueror's song!
John Newton

  1. Deck the halls with boughs of holly
    Fa la la la la la la la la.
    'Tis the season to be jolly,
    Fa la la la la la la la la.
    Don we now our gay apparel,
    Fa la la la la la la la la.
    Troll the ancient Yuletide carol,
    Fa la la la la la la la la.
  2. Fast away the old year passes,
    Fa la Ia Ia la la la la la.
    Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
    Fa la la la la la la la la.
    Sing we joyous all together,
    Fa la Ia Ia la la la la la.
    Heedless of the wind and weather,
    Fa la la la la la la la la.
303
  1. Angels we have heard on high,
    Sweetly singing o'er the plains
    And the mountains in reply,
    Echo back their joyous strains.
    Glo-ria in excelsis De-o
    Glo-ria in excelsis De-o.
  2. Shepherds, why this jubilee?
    Why your joyous strains prolong?
    Say what may the tiding be
    Which inspire your heav'nly song?
  3. Come to Bethlehem, and see
    Him whose birth the angels sing;
    Come, adore on bended knee
    Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
304
  1. Go, tell it on the mountain,
    over the hills and everywhere.
    Go, tell it on the mountain
    that Jesus Christ is born.
  2. While shepherds kept their watching
    o'er silent flocks by night,
    behold, throughout the heavens
    There shone a holy light.
  3. The shepherds feared and trembled
    when lo, above the earth
    rang out the angel chorus
    that hailed our Saviour's birth!
  4. Down in a lonely manger
    the humble Christ was born,
    and God sent our salvation
    that blessed Christmas morn.
305
  1. God rest you merry, gentlemen,
    Let nothing you dismay,
    Remember Christ our Savior
    Was born on Christmas day,
    To save us all from Satan's pow'r
    When we were gone astray;
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy,
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy.
  2. From God our heavenly Father
    A blessed angel came.
    And unto certain shepherds
    Brought tidings of the same,
    How that in Bethlehem was born
    The Son of God by name:
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy,
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy.
  3. The shepherds at those tidings
    Rejoiced much in mind,
    And left their flocks a-feeding,
    In tempest, storm, and wind,
    And went to Bethlehem straightway
    This blessed babe to find:
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy,
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy.
  4. But when to Bethlehem they came,
    Whereat this infant lay
    They found Him in a manger,
    Where oxen feed on hay;
    His mother Mary kneeling,
    Unto the Lord did pray:
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy,
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy.
  5. Now to the Lord sing praises,
    All you within this place,
    And with true love and brotherhood
    Each other now embrace;
    This holy tide of Christmas
    All others doth deface:
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy,
    Oh tidings of comfort and joy.
306
  1. Hark! the herald angels sing,
    Glory to the newborn King,
    peace on earth, and mercy mild,
    God and sinners reconciled.
    Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
    join the triumph of the skies;
    with angelic host proclaim,
    "Christ is born in Bethlehem!"
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    Glory to the newborn King.
  2. Christ, by highest heaven adored,
    Christ, the everlasting Lord,
    late in time behold Him come,
    offspring of a virgin's womb.
    Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,
    hail, th' incarnate Deity,
    Pleased as man with men to dwell,
    Jesus, our Emmanuel!
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    Glory to the newborn King.
  3. Hail, the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
    Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
    Light and life to all He brings,
    ris'n with healing in His wings.
    Mild He lays His glory by,
    born that man no more may die,
    born to raise the sons of earth,
    born to give them second birth.
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    Glory to the newborn King.
307
  1. The first Noel, the angel did say,
    Was to certain poor shepherds
    in fields as they lay
    In fields whe-re they lay keeping their sheep,
    On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel.
  2. Then let us all with one accord
    Sing praises to our heavenly Lord;
    That ha-th ma-de heaven and earth of naught,
    And w-ith His blo-od mankind hath bought.
308
  1. It came upon a midnight clear,
    that glorious song of old,
    From angels bending near the earth
    to touch their harps of gold:
    "Peace on the earth, good will to men,
    from heaven's all-gracious King!"
    The world in solemn stillness lay
    to hear the angels sing.
  2. Still through the cloven skies they come
    with peaceful wings unfurled;
    and still their heavenly music floats
    o'er all the weary world;
    above its sad and lowly plains
    they bend on hovering wing,
    and ever o'er its Babel sounds
    the blessed angels sing.
309
  1. Joy to the world! The Lord is come:
    let earth receive her King!
    Let every heart prepare Him room,
    and heaven and nature sing.
  2. Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns:
    let men their songs employ,
    while fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
    repeat the sounding joy.
  3. He rules the earth with truth and grace,
    and makes the nations prove
    the glories of His righteousnes
    and wonders of His love.
310
  1. O little town of Bethlehem,
    how still we see thee lie.
    Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
    the silent stars go by
    Yet in thy dark streets shineth,
    the everlasting light.
    The hopes and fears of all the years
    are met in thee tonight.
  2. For Christ is born of Mary,
    and gathered all above
    While mortals sleep the angels keep
    their watch of wondering love.
    Oh morning stars together
    proclaim the holy birth.
    And praises sing to God the king,
    and peace to men on earth.
  3. How silently, how silently,
    the wondrous gift is given
    So God imparts to human hearts
    the blessings of His heaven.
    No ear may hear His coming,
    but in this world of sin
    Where meek souls will receive Him still,
    the dear Christ enters in.
311
  1. O come, O come, Emmanuel,
    And ransom captive Israel,
    That mourns in lonely exile here
    Until the Son of God appear.
    Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.
  2. O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
    Our spirits by Thine advent here;
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
    And death's dark shadows put to flight.
  3. O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
    And order all things, far and nigh;
    To us the path of knowledge show,
    And cause us in her ways to go.
312
  1. O holy night!
    The stars are brightly shining,
    It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.
    Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
    Till He appeared; Gift of infinite worth.
    A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
    For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
    Fall on your knees!
    Oh, hear the angel voices!
    O night divine,
    O night when Christ was born;
    O night divine, O night, O night divine!
313
  1. We wish you a Merry Christmas;
    We wish you a Merry Christmas;
    We wish you a Merry Christmas
    and a Happy New Year.
    Good tidings we bring to you and your kin,
    Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.
314
  1. Silent night! holy night!
    All is calm, all is bright
    round yon virgin mother and child,
    Holy infant so tender and mild,
    sleep in heavenly peace!
  2. Silent night! holy night!
    Shepherds quake at the sight,
    glories stream from heaven afar,
    heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
    Christ, the Saviour, is born!
  3. Silent night! holy night!
    Son of God, love's pure light
    radiant beams from Thy holy face,
    with the dawn of redeeming grace,
    Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.
315
  1. While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
    All seated on the ground,
    The angel of the Lord came down
    And glory shone around.
  2. "Fear not," said he for mighty dread
    had seized their troubled mind.
    "Glad tidings of great joy I bring
    To you and all man-kind."
  3. "To you in David's town this day
    Is born of David's line
    The Savior who is Christ the Lord
    And this shall be the sign:
  4. The heav'nly babe you there shall find
    To human view displayed
    All meanly wrapped in swathing bands
    And in a manger laid"
316
  1. What child is this, who, laid to rest
    On Mary's lap, is sleeping?
    Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
    While shepherds watch are keeping?
    This, this is Christ the King,
    Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
    Haste, haste to bring him laud,
    The Babe, the Son of Mary!
  2. So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh,
    Come peasant king to own Him,
    The King of kings, salvation brings,
    Let loving hearts enthrone Him.
    Raise, raise the song on high,
    The virgin sings her lullaby:
    Joy, joy, for Christ is born,
    The Babe, the Son of Mary!
