C.H.F. No. 37 "11.11.11.6"
  1. A ruler once came to Jesus by night,
    To ask Him the way of salvation and light:
    The Master made answer in words true and plain:
    "Ye must be born again!"
    "Ye must be born again!"
    "Ye must be born again!"
    I verily, verily say unto thee,
    "Ye must be born again!"
  2. Ye children of men, attend to the word
    So solemnly uttered by Jesus the Lord;
    And let not this message to you be in vain,
    "Ye must be born again!"
  3. O ye who would enter this glorious rest,
    And sing with the ransomed the song of the blest;
    The life everlasting if you would obtain,
    "Ye must be born again!"

  1. A sinner bound for eternity
    Needs a shelter in the time of storm,
    And Jesus says, “Come unto Me,
    I'm a shelter in the time of storm."
    O! Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
    A weary land, a weary land;
    O! Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
    A shelter in the time storm.
  2. He died on the cross to purchase thee,
    A shelter in the time of storm;
    He lives again and offers free
    A shelter in the time of storm.
  3. A harbour of safety He offers thee,
    A shelter in the time of storm;
    O, wilt thou now to the Refuge flee
    He's a shelter in the time of storm.
  4. Off a rock-bound coast and fast asleep,
    Beware of the time of storm;
    When thousands will wake to wail and weep,
    Unsheltered in the time of storm.
  5. O! trifle not with this day of grace;
    He's a shelter in the time of storm,
    For vengeance soon will take its place;
    He's a shelter in the time of storm.

  1. Again the blessed Gospel I have heard,
    That Word divine and true,
    And God again has spoken to my soul;
    O now, what shall I do
    I come, I come,
    I come to Thee, My God,
    I do Thy love believe,
    I do accept Thy gift of life and peace,
    I do Thy Son receive.
  2. My wayward heart has wandered far from Thee
    And known no rest or home,
    No present peace, no hope of joy beyond,
    But now to Thee I come.
  3. No works of mine, no merit can I bring,
    No holiness within,
    I only trust the precious blood of Christ;
    It cleanses from all sin.

  1. Ah! Many years my burdened heart
    Had sighed and longed to know
    The virtues of the Saviour's blood,
    That washes white as snow.
    There's power in Jesus' blood,
    There's power in Jesus' blood,
    There's power in Jesus' cleansing blood
    That washes white us snow.
  2. I heard the saints in rapture tell,
    How much a soul may know,
    Of Jesus' precious cleansing blood,
    That washes white as snow.
  3. I came to Jesus sick and vile,
    That I His grace might know:
    And trusting in His precious blood,
    It washed me white as snow.
  4. He cast on me a look of love,
    Such as no words can show,
    I knew within my weary heart
    He washed me white as snow.
  5. O, tell to every saint you meet,
    To sinners high and low:
    That trusting in the Saviour's blood,
    It washes white as snow.

    Come to the supper spread;
    Come, rich and poor;
    Come, old and young,
    Come, and be richly fed.
    I am coming, Lord,
    Coming now to Thee;
    Trusting in Thy precious blood
    That flowed on Calvary.
  2. All things are ready — Come!
    The invitation's given,
    Through Him who now in glory sits
    At God's right hand in heaven.
  3. All things are ready — Come!
    The door is open wide;
    O, feast upon the love of God!
    For Christ, His Son, has died.
  4. All things are ready — Come!
    All hindrance is removed;
    And God, in Christ, His precious love
    To sinful man has proved!
  5. All things are ready — Come!

    O sinner, come, the Saviour waits
    This hour to welcome thee.

5.4.5.4.6.6.6.4.
  1. "Almost persuaded" now to believe;
    "Almost persuaded" Christ to receive.
    Seems now some soul to say
    "Go, Spirit, go Thy way,
    Some more convenient day
    "On Thee I'll call"
  2. "Almost persuaded" come, come, today!
    "Almost persuaded" turn not away.
    Jesus invites you here.
    Angels are lingering near,
    Prayers rise from hearts so dear,
    O wanderer, come!
  3. "Almost persuaded," harvest is past.
    "Almost persuaded," doom comes at last.
    "Almost" cannot avail,
    "Almost" is but to fail,
    Sad, sad that bitter wail,
    "Almost," but lost.

  1. And can it be that I should gain
    An interest in the Saviour's blood
    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;
    Humbled Himself and in His love
    He 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,
    I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
    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.

  1. Are you weary and sad 'neath the burden of sin
    Does it fill all your soul with dismay
    And to meet the just claims of a sin-hating God
    Do you know you have nothing to pay
    Come! Come, come unto Him!
    If you own with repentance you've nothing to pay,
    He will freely and frankly forgive,
  2. All your tears and your sorrow will never atone,
    Nor by works can you clear away sin,
    Then turn to the One who can save you alone,
    To the Saviour in confidence cling.
  3. He's the One who has come from God's glory above,
    To save you from ruin and loss;
    For He paid the full debt in His own precious blood
    When He put away sin on the cross.
  4. Then come, ruined sinner, no longer delay,
    Nor in bondage and misery live;
    lf you own with repentance, you've nothing to pay,
    He will freely and frankly forgive.

    On the cross! On the cross!
    For us He shed His precious blood,
    On the cross! On the cross!

    "Eli, lama sabachthani"
    Draw near and see the Saviour die,
    On the cross! On the cross!
  2. Behold His arms extended wide,
    On the cross! On the cross!
    Behold His bleeding hands and side,
    On the cross! On the cross!
    The sun withholds its rays of light,
    The heavens are clothed in shades of night,
    While Jesus wins the glorious Fight,
    On the cross! On the cross!
  3. By faith we see Him lifted up,
    On the cross! on the cross!
    He drinks, for us the bitter cup,
    On the cross! On the cross!
    The rocks do rend, the mountains quake,
    While Jesus doth atonement make,
    While Jesus suffers for our sake,
    on the cross! On the cross!
  4. And now the mighty deed is done,
    On the cross! on the cross!
    The battle fought, the victory won,
    On the cross! On the cross!
    To heaven He turns His languid eyes,
    "'Tis finished" now, the Conqueror cries,
    Then bows His sacred head and dies,
    On the cross! On the cross!

    May I come in May I come in
    Behold Me standing at the door,

  3. I would not plead with thee in vain;
    Remember all My grief and pain!
    I died, to ransom thee from sin:
    May I come in May I come in
  4. I bring thee joy from heaven above,
    I bring thee pardon, peace, and love:

  1. Behold the Lamb of God,
    Who bore a vile world's sin,
    Look unto Him and be thou saved;
    The promise takes thee in.
    Believe and you'll be saved,
    The promise takes thee in;
    The Saviour see He died for thee,
    The promise takes thee in.
  2. More marred than any man's,
    The Saviour's visage See;
    Was ever sorrow like to His,
    Endured on Calvary
  3. Gaze on His thorn-wreathed brow,
    Behold the crimson tide
    Flow from His head, His hands, His feet,
    And from His pierced, side.
  4. O, hear that startling cry!
    What can its meaning be:
    "My God, my God, O, why hast Thou
    In wrath forsaken Me"
  5. O, 'twas because our sins
    On Him by God were laid;
    He, who Himself had never sinned,
    For sinners, sin was made.
  6. Thus sin He put away,
    Thus justice satisfied;
    And sinners all who Jesus trust
    Through Him are justified.
    For God so loved the world,
    He gave His only Son
    That whosoever Him believes,
    Eternal woe will shun.

  1. Behold the Man upon the throne!
    Both Lord and Christ is He alone,
    God sent Him forth, His only One,
    The Father's well-beloved Son.
  2. Jesus, God's gift from heaven came;
    Bore on the earth reproach and shame,
    Bowed on the cross His holy head,
    Died, and God raised Him from the dead.
  3. Once for our crimson sins He died,
    He suffered, He was crucified;
    Now He, with glory, honour crowned,
    O'er sin makes grace much more abound.
  4. One Mediator, throned above,
    Bears witness God is light and love;
    None but the Son sets sinners free,
    "Come now," He saith, "come unto Me."
  5. "Come unto Me!" O blessed voice!
    Ye laden ones, make Christ your choice;
    The hour is near when every eye
    Shall see Him shine in yonder sky.
  6. God doth extol none other name,
    Supreme, eternal, is His claim;
    His rights let all confess, obey;
    "Come unto Me," He saith today!

    Expressed in deeds, all words above,

    To ransom souls from sin's dark stain;
    Blood only could remission gain,

  2. Behold the measure of God's love
    On the cross! On the cross!
    There, there He did its greatness prove,

    O, what can with such love compare
    There Jesus did God's love declare,
    And all the weight of judgment bear

  3. Behold the fullness of God's love
    On the cross! On the cross!
    His love to all He then did prove,
    On the cross! On the cross!
    No greater gift could He bestow,
    To show His love to man below;
    Through His own Son doth mercy flow,
    By the cross! By the cross!

  1. Blessed be the fountain of blood,
    To a world of sinners revealed;
    Blessed be the dear Son of God;
    Only by His stripes are we healed.
    Though I' ve wandered far from His fold,
    Bringing to my heart pain and woe,
    Wash me in the blood of the Lamb,
    And I shall be whiter than snow.
    Whiter than the snow,

    Wash me in the blood of the Lamb,
    And I shall be whiter than snow.
  2. Thorny was the crown that He wore,
    And the cross His body o'er came;
    Grievous were the sorrows He bore,
    But He suffered thus not in vain.
    May I to that Fountain be led,
    Made to cleanse my sins here below;
    Wash me in the blood that He shed,
    And I shall be whiter than snow.
  3. Father, I have wandered from Thee,
    Often has my heart gone astray;
    Crimson do my sins seem to me:
    Water cannot wash them away.
    Jesus, to that Fountain of Thine,
    Leaning on Thy promise I go,
    Cleanse me by Thy washing divine,
    And I shall be whiter than snow.

  1. By Samaria's wayside well,
    Once a blessed message fell
    On a woman's thirsty soul, long ago;
    And to eyes that long were sealed
    Was the glorious light revealed,
    Through a fountain that was opened
    Long ago.
    There's a fountain that was opened
    Long ago, long ago,
    For the healing of the nations is its flow;
    Along the line of ages,
    The prophets and the sages
    Caught the singing of its waters
    Long ago.
  2. And a little captive maid,
    By a leper undismayed,
    Told to him a simple story long ago;
    That the stream where he might have
    Had alone the power to save,
    Through his mist in that old fountain,
    Long ago.
  3. And a woman in a crowd,
    Without word or cry aloud,
    Just stooped down and touched His garment long ago;
    As her urgent need appealed,
    So her sinful soul was healed
    In that fountain that was opened
    Long ago.
  4. As the eunuch tried to read
    Philip taught him of his need,
    And baptized him in the stream long ago;
    As the outward seal and sign
    Of an inward work divine,
    That was wrought through that old fountain
    Long ago.

  1. I heard an old, old story,
    How a Saviour came from glory,
    How He gave His life on Calvary
    To save a wretch like me;
    I heard about His groaning,
    Of His precious blood’s atoning,
    Then I repented of my sins
    And won the victory.
    O victory in Jesus, my Saviour for ever;
    He sought me and bought me
    with His redeeming blood;
    He loved me ere I knew Him,
    And all my love is due Him,
    He plunged me to victory
    Beneath the cleansing blood.
  2. I heard about His healing,
    Of His cleansing power revealing,
    How He made the lame to walk again
    And caused the blind to see;
    And then I cried, "Dear Jesus,
    Come and heal my broken spirit,"
    And somehow Jesus came and brought
    To me the victory.
  3. I heard about a mansion
    He has built for me in glory,
    And I heard about the streets of gold
    Beyond the crystal sea;
    About the angels singing,
    And the old redemption story,
    And some sweet day I’ll sing up there
    The song of victory.

    How to steal the bitter from life’s woes;
    How to gild the tear drop with His smile,
    Make the desert garden bloom a while;
    When my weakness leaneth on His might,
    All seems light.
    When my weakness leaneth on His might,
    All seems light.
  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;
    Love esteems it heaven to abide at His side
    Love esteems it heaven to abide at His side
  4. O, leave it all with Jesus, drooping soul!
    Tell not half thy story, but the whole.
    Worlds on worlds are hanging on His Hand,
    Life and death are waiting His command;
    Yet His tender bosom makes thee room,
    O, come home,
    Yet His tender bosom makes thee room,
    O, come home.

    And that is just the reason
    I tell it now to thee
  3. I love to tell the story!

    What seems, each time I tell it,

    The message of salvation
    From God’s own Holy Word.

  1. I once was a stranger
    To grace and to God,
    I knew not my danger
    And felt not my load;
    Though friends spoke in rapture
    Of Christ on the tree,
    Jehovah Tsidkenu
    Was nothing to me.
  2. Like tears from the daughters
    Of Zion that roll,
    I wept when the waters
    Went over His soul;
    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,
    My guilty fears banished,
    With boldness I came
    To drink at the fountain,
    Life-giving and free,
    Jehovah Tsidkenu
    Is all things to me.
  5. E’en treading the valley,
    The shadow of death,
    This watchword will rally
    My faltering breath;
    For if from life’s fever
    My God sets me free,
    Jehovah Tsidkenu,
    My death-song shall be.

    And my song shall ever be:
    How marvellous! how wonderful!
    Is my Saviour's love for me.

    He prayed, “Not My will but Thine,"
    He had no tears for His own griefs,
    But sweat drops of blood for mine.
  3. In wonder angels beheld Him
    And came from the world of light
    To comfort Him in the sorrows
    He bore for my soul that night.
  4. He took my sins and my sorrows,
    He made them His very own;
    He bore the burden on Calvary,
    And suffered and died alone.

    Could save a poor sinner like me.
  2. I wandered on in the darkness,

    Saying, "Christ the Redeemer hath power
    To save a poor sinner like thee."

    And O! what a joy came to me!

  1. In fancy I stood by the shore, one day,
    Of the beautiful murmuring sea;
    I saw the great crowds as they thronged the way
    Of the Stranger of Galilee;
    I saw how the man who was blind from birth,
    In a moment was made to see;
    The lame was made whole by the matchless skill
    Of the Stranger of Galilee.
    And I felt I could love Him forever;
    So gracious and tender was He!
    I claimed Him that day as my Saviour;

    When sin—sick and helpless He saw me there,
    This Stranger of Galilee:
    He showed me His hand and His riven side,
    And He whispered "It was for tbee!"
    My burden fell off at the pierced feet
    Of the Stranger of Galilee.
  3. I heard Him speak peace to the angry waves,
    Of that turbulent, raging sea;
    And lo! at His word are the waters stilled,
    This Stranger of Galilee;
    A peaceful, a quiet and holy calm,
    Now and ever abides with me;
    He holdeth my life in His mighty hands,
    This Stranger of Galilee.
  4. Come ye, who are driven, and tempest-tossed,

  1. Life at best is very brief,
    Like the falling of a leaf,
    Like the binding of a sheaf,

    Fleeting days are telling fast,
    That the die will soon be cast,
    And the fatal line be passed,

    Be in time, be in time
    While the voice of Jesus calls you, be in time
    If in sin you longer wait,
    You may find no open gate
    And your cry be just too late,
    Be in time.
  2. Fairest flowers soon decay,
    Youth and beauty pass away,
    O, you have not long to stay,
    Be in time.
    While God’s Spirit bids you come,
    Sinner, do not longer roam,
    Lest you seal your hopeless doom,
    Be in time.
  3. Time is gliding swiftly by,
    Death and judgment draweth nigh,
    To the arms of Jesus fly,
    Be in time.
    O, I pray you count the cost,
    Ere the fatal line be crossed,
    And your soul in hell be lost,
    Be in time.
  4. Sinner, heed the warning voice,
    Make the Lord your final choice,
    Then all heaven will rejoice,
    Be in time.
    Come from darkness into light,
    Come let Jesus make you right,
    Come and start for heaven tonight,

    Long, long has He called thee in vain;
    He called thee when joy lent its crown to thy days,
    He called thee in sorrow and pain.
    O turn, while the Saviour in mercy is waiting,
    And steer for the harbour light;
    For how do you know but your soul may be drifting
    Over the dead-line tonight
  2. O sinner, thine ears have been deaf to His voice,

    The calls of thy Saviour have so wearied thee,

    But leave thee alone in thy darkness to dwell,

    Broad and long, and deep and high!
    Every doubt and fear is groundless,
    Now the word of faith is nigh.
    Jesus Christ, for my salvation,
    Came by water and by blood,
    Clear I stand from condemnation
    In the risen Son of God.
    My sins were laid on Jesus,
    My sins were laid on Jesus,
    My sins were laid on Jesus,
    When He died on Calvary
  2. I was "waiting" once for pardon,
    I was "hoping" to be saved,
    "Waiting," though my heart would harden,
    "Hoping" danger might be braved.
    When by God’s own truth confounded,
    I, a sinner, stood confessed,
    Richly, then, His grace abounded,
    Jesus gave me perfect rest.
  3. Was it weary work believing
    Days and weeks and years of toil,
    Weary work a gift receiving,
    Who would God’s salvation spoil
    No, ’tis faith’s delight to ponder
    What the Son of God hath done,
    On the throne to see Him yonder,
    Holy, crowned, the Living One.
  4. ’Tis not doing, ’tis not praying,
    ’Tis not weeping saves the soul;
    God is now His grace displaying;
    Jesus died to make thee whole.
    Look to Him, and life-works follow:
    Look to Him, without delay,
    Sinner, look! and ere to-morrow
    Thou wilt weep, and praise, and pray.

    That whosoever Him believes

  1. "Stricken, smitten, and afflicted
    See Him die upon the tree!
    ’Tis the Christ by man rejected,
    Yes my soul, ’tis He! ’tis He!
    Many hands were raised to wound Him,
    None would interpose to save;
    But the awful stroke that found Him
    Was the stroke that justice gave.
  2. Ye who think of sin but lightly,
    Nor suppose the evil great,
    Here may view its nature rightly,
    Here its guilt may estimate.
    Mark the sacrifice appointed!
    See who bears the awful load!
    `Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed,
    Son of Man, and Son of God.
  3. Here we have a firm foundation,
    Here’s the refuge of the lost;
    Christ the Rock of our salvation;
    His the Name of which we boast.
    Lamb of God, for sinners wounded,
    Sacrificed to cancel guilt!
    None shall ever be confounded
    Who on Him their hopes have built.

    By power God raised Him from the dead.

    God’s judgment Jesus bore,
    He paid in full the cost
    Of glory evermore.
    His precious blood was freely shed,
    And Jesus crushed the serpent’s head!

    Filled with a tender love;
    No throb nor throe that our hearts can know
    But He feels it above.
  3. O let us hark to the voice of Jesus!
    O, may we never roam,

  1. There is no name so sweet on earth,
    No name so sweet in heaven,
    The name, before His wondrous birth,
    To Christ the Saviour given.
    We love to sing of Christ the King,
    And hail Him, blessed Jesus!
    For there’s no word ear ever heard
    So dear so sweet as “Jesus."
  2. And when He hung upon the tree,
    They wrote this name above Him,
    That all might see the reason we
    For evermore must love Him.

  1. There was One who was willing to die in my stead,
    That a soul so unworthy might live,
    And the path to the Cross He was willing to tread,
    All the sins of my life to forgive.
    He was nailed to the Cross,
    He was nailed to the Cross,
    O how much He was willing to bear!
    With what anguish and loss,
    Jesus went to the Cross!
    And my sins were all laid on Him there!
  2. He is tender and loving and patient with me,
    While He cleanses my heart of its dross,
    But there’s no condemnation — I know I am free,
    For my sins are all nailed to the Cross.
  3. I will cling to my Saviour and never depart,
    I will joyfully journey each day
    With a song on my lips and a song in my heart,

  1. There were ninety and nine that safely lay
    In the shelter of the fold,
    But one was out on the hills away,
    Far off from the gates of gold,
    Away on the mountains wild and bare,
    Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.
  2. "Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine,
    Are they not enough for Thee"
    But the Shepherd made answer,
    "This of Mine has wandered away from Me;
    And although the road be rough and steep,
    I go to the desert to find My sheep
  3. But none of the ransomed ever knew
    How deep were the waters crossed;
    Nor how dark was the night that the Lord passed through
    Ere he found His sheep that was lost.
    Out in the desert He heard its cry,
    Sick and helpless and ready to die.
  4. “Lord, whence are those blood-drops all the way
    That mark out the mountain’s track"
    “They were shed for one who had gone astray
    Ere the Shepherd could bring him back;"
    "Lord, whence are Thy hands so rent and torn"
    "They are pierced tonight by many a thorn."
  5. And all through the mountains thunder-riven,
    And up from the rocky steep,
    There arose a cry to the gate of heaven,
    "Rejoice! I have found my sheep
    And the angels echoed around the throne,
    “Rejoice! for the Lord brings back His own."

  1. There’s a hill lone and grey, in a land far away,
    In a country beyond the blue sea,
    Where beneath that fair sky went a Man forth to die
    For the world and for you and for me.
    O, it bows down my heart,
    And the tear-drops will start
    When in memory that grey hill I see,
    For ’twas there on its side
    Jesus suffered and died
    To redeem a poor sinner like me.
  2. Hark! I hear the dull blow of the hammer swung low;
    They are nailing my Lord to the tree,
    And the cross they upraise while the multitude gaze
    On the blest Lamb of dark Calvary.
  3. How they mock Him in death, to His last labouring breath,
    While His friends sadly weep o’er the way!
    But though lonely and faint, still no word of complaint
    Fell from Him on the hill lone and grey.
  4. Then the darkness came down and the rocks rent around,
    And a cry pierced the grief-laden air;
    ’Twas the voice of the King who received death’s dark sting,
    All to save us from endless despair.
  5. Let the sun hide its face, let the earth reel apace,
    Over men who their Saviour have slain;
    But behold from the sod, comes the blest Lamb of God,
    Who was slain and is risen again.

  1. There’s a line that is drawn by rejecting our Lord,
    Where the call of His Spirit is lost,
    And you hurry along with the pleasure-mad throng,

    Have you counted the cost,
    If your soul should be lost,

  1. Sorry, this hymn is copyrighted.
  1. They bound the hands of Jesus in the garden where He prayed;
    They led Him through the streets in shame.
    They spat upon the Saviour, so pure and free from sin;
    They said, “Crucify Him; He’s to blame
    He could have called ten thousand angels
    To destroy the world and set Him free.
    He could have called ten thousand angels,
    But He died alone for you and me.
  2. Upon His precious head, they placed a crown of thorns;
    They laughed and said, "Behold the King."
    They struck Him and they cursed Him And mocked His holy name.
    All alone He suffered everything.
  3. When they nailed Him to the cross, his mother stood nearby
    He said, "Woman, behold thy Son!"
    He cried, "I thirst" on Calvary, But they gave Him nought to drink.
    Then the sinful work of man was done.
  4. To the howling mob He yielded, He did not for mercy cry.
    The cross of shame He took alone.
    And when He cried, “’Tis finished," He gave Himself to die;
    Salvation’s wondrous plan was done.

  1. Thou art not very far from the kingdom of God,
    Thou hast heard the sweet call of the King;
    Thou hast met the glad messenger speeding abroad,
    His free-hearted welcome to bring.
    And the kingdom looks bright, but the world is so dear
    With its labour, and pleasure, and sin;
    And yet it were sad to have seen it so near,
    And never to enter therein.
    Yes, not very far from salvation by grace,
    But beware, O, sinner; beware!
    For not very far is a perilous place,
    Thou art lost if thou linger there.
  2. Thou art not very far from the foot of the cross:
    Its shadow is falling on thee;
    And the blood that redeemeth the sinner from loss
    Is flowing so rich and so free.
    That cross of atonement, that ransoming blood,
    Is a saving or sentencing sight;
    It were death at the foot of the cross to have stood,
    And thy robes never washed, or made white.
  3. O, many were once as near heaven as thou,
    But they lingered and lost their day;
    They are weeping, and wailing, and wandering now
    On the coasts of the castaway.
    They are far from the kingdom, and far from the crown,
    From Christ and His ransoming cross,
    O, infinite sadness! No tears but His own
    Can weep such a fathomless loss.

    When He came to the Cross from the throne above,
    To save our souls from hell!
  3. Our sins and guilt were upon Him laid,
    He the wrath of God endured,
    By His precious blood an atonement made,
    And our full discharge procured.

    A conqueror o'er the grave,

  1. Weeping will not save thee
    Though thy face were bathed in tears,
    That could not allay thy fears,
    Could not wash the sins of years,
    Weeping will not save thee.
    Jesus wept and died for thee;
    Jesus suffered on the tree;
    Jesus waits to make thee free;
    He alone can save thee.
  2. Working will not save thee;
    Purest deeds that thou can do,
    Holiest thoughts and feelings too,
    Cannot form thy soul anew,
    Working will not save thee.

    Helpless, guilty, lost you lie;
    In your ears is mercy’s cry;
    If you wait you’ll surely die,
    Waiting will not save thee.

    Can for human guilt atone.

  1. Years I spent in vanity and pride,
    Caring not my Lord was crucified;
    Knowing not it was for me He died
    On Calvary.
    Mercy there was great and grace was free,
    Pardon there was multiplied to me,
    There my burdened soul found liberty,
    At Calvary.
  2. By God’s Word at last my sin I learned,
    Then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
    Till my guilty soul, imploring, turned
    To Calvary.
  3. O, the love that drew salvation’s plan,
    O, the grace that brought it down to man,
    O, the mighty gulf that God did span
    At Calvary.
  4. Now I’d give to Jesus everything,
    Now I gladly own Him as my King,
    Now my raptured soul can only sing
    Of Calvary.

  1. "Yet there is room!" The Lamb’s bright hall of song,
    With its fair glory, beckons thee along:
    Room, room, still room, O, enter, enter now.
  2. Day is declining, and the sun is low:
    The shadows lengthen, light makes haste to go,
    Room, room, still room, O, enter, enter now.
  3. The bridal hall is tilling for the feast;
    Pass in, pass in, and be the Bridegroom’s guest,
    Room, room, still room, O, enter, enter now.
  4. Louder and sweeter sounds the loving call:
    "Come, lingerer, come," enter that festal hall,
    Room, room, still room, O, enter, enter now.
  5. Ere night that gate may close and seal thy doom,
    Then the last low, long cry, "No room, no room."
    No room, no room, O, woeful cry, "No room."

  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!
    Impressed 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. And did the Holy and the lust,
    The Sovereign of the skies,
    Stoop down to wretchedness and dust,
    That guilty worms might rise?
    Out of the ivory palaces
    Into a world of woe,
    Only His great eternal love
    Made my Saviour go!
  2. Yes, the Redeemer left His throne,
    His radiant throne on high,
    Surpassing mercy, love unknown!
    To suffer, bleed and die.
  3. He took the ruined sinner’s place,
    And suffered in his stead:
    For man, O miracle of grace!
    For man the Saviour bled.
  4. Jesus! my soul adoring bends
    To love, so full, so free;
    Though vile I am, that love extends
    Its sacred power to me.

    For favours so divine?

  1. Down from His glory, ever—living story,
    My God and Saviour came, and Jesus was His name;
    Born in a manger, to His own a stranger,
    A man of sorrows, tears and agony!
    O how I love Him! How I adore Him!

    The great Creator became my Saviour;
    And all God’s fullness dwelleth in Him!
  2. What condescension, bringing us redemption,
    That in the dead of night, not one faint hope in sight;
    God gracious, tender, laid aside His splendour,

  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.

    And His friends unfaithful prove,
    Satan’s arts, nor men’s defections

    He did pass in glorious might,
    There to bear sin’s heavy burden
    And to win the wondrous fight.

    Seated on the Father’s throne
    Where adoring hearts surrounding,

  2. When through the woods and forest glades I wander
    And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
    When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
    And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze.
  3. And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing,
    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.

    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!"

    He has rent the veil in two.
    O behold the Man of Sorrows,
    O behold Him in plain view;
    Lo! He is the mighty conqueror;

    When the days are weary,
    The long nights dreary,
    I know my Saviour cares.
  2. Does Jesus care when my way is dark
    With a nameless dread and fear?
    As the daylight fades into deep night shades,
    Does He care enough to be near?
  3. Does Jesus care when I’ve said "good-bye"
    To the dearest on earth to me,
    And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks,
    Is this aught to Him? Does He see?

  1. Hast thou heard Him, seen Him, known Him?
    Is not thine a captured heart?
    Chief among ten thousand own Him,
    Joyful choose the better part.
  2. Idols once they won thee, charmed thee,
    Lovely things of time and sense;
    Gilded, thus does sin disarm thee,
    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?
  6. ’Tis the look that melted Peter,
    ’Tis the face that Stephen saw,
    ’Tis the heart that wept with Mary,
    Can alone from idols draw.

    To added affliction He addeth His mercy,

    His power no boundary known unto men,
    For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
    He giveth and giveth and giveth again.

    He will show us were but sin;

    More of Thyself each day to know
    And more into Thine image grow.

  1. Saviour, more than life to me,
    I am clinging, clinging close to Thee;
    Let Thy precious blood applied,
    Keep me ever, ever near Thy side.
    Every day, every hour,
    Let me feel Thy cleansing power;
    May Thy tender love to me,
    Bind me closer; closer; Lord, to Thee.
  2. Through this changing world below,
    Lead me gently, gently as I go;
    Trusting Thee, I cannot stray,
    I can never, never, lose my way.
  3. Let me love Thee more and more,
    Till this fleeting, fleeting life is o’er;
    Till my soul is lost in love
    In a brighter, brighter world above.

  1. Saviour, Thy dying love Thou gavest me,
    Nor should I aught withhold, My Lord, from Thee;
    In love my soul would bow,
    My heart fulfill its vow,
    Some offering bring Thee now,
    Something for Thee.
  2. At the blest mercy-seat pleading for me,
    My feeble faith looks up, Saviour, to Thee;
    Help me the cross to bear,
    Thy wondrous love declare,
    Some song to raise, or prayer,
    Something for Thee.
  3. Give me a faithful heart, likeness to Thee;
    That each departing day henceforth may see
    Some work of love begun,
    Some deed of kindness done,
    Some wanderer sought and won,
    Something for Thee.
  4. All that I am and have — Thy gifts so free,
    In joy, in grief, through life, O Lord, for Thee!
    And when Thy face I see,
    My ransomed soul shall be,
    Through all eternity
    Something for Thee.

  1. Simply trusting eyery day,
    Trusting through a stormy way;
    Even when my faith is small,
    Trusting Jesus, that is all.

    Trusting as the days go by
    Trusting Him whate’er befall,
    Trusting Jesus, that is all.

    Into this poor heart of mine.
    While He leads I cannot fall,
    Trusting Jesus, that is all.

    Praying, if the path be drear;
    If in danger, for Him call,
    Trusting Jesus, that is all.

    Trusting Him till earth is past,
    Till within the jasper wall,
    Trusting Jesus, that is all.

    But O, the joy when I shall wake
    Within the palace of the King!

    And tell the story — saved by grace;
    And I shall see Him face to face,

    Beneath the rosy-tinted west,
    My blessed Lord will say, "Well done!"

  1. The sands of time are sinking,
    The dawn of heaven breaks,
    The summer morn I’ve sighed for,
    The fair sweet morn awakes.
    Dark, dark has been the midnight
    But dayspring is at hand,
    And glory, glory dwelleth
    In Immanuel’s land.
  2. O! I am my Beloved’s,
    And my Beloved is mine;
    He brings a poor vile sinner,
    Into His house of wine.
    I stand upon His merit,
    I know no other stand,
    Not e’en where glory dwelleth
    In Immanuel’s land.
  3. O, Christ He is the fountain,
    The deep sweet well of love;
    The streams on earth I’ve tasted,
    More deep I’ll drink above;
    There to an ocean’s fullness
    His mercy doth expand,
    And glory, glory dwelleth
    In Immanuel’s land.
  4. With mercy and with judgment
    My web of time He wove,
    And aye the dews of sorrow
    Were lustered with His love.
    I’ll bless the hand that guided,
    I’ll bless the heart that planned,
    When throned where glory dwelleth
    In Immanuel`s land.
  5. The bride eyes not her garment
    But her dear bridegrooms face;
    I will not gaze at glory
    But on the King of Grace.
    Not at the crown He giveth
    But on His pierced hand;
    The Lamb is all the glory
    Of Immanuel’s land.

    Yet, Lord, with joy my lips confess,

    O, wonderful, wonderful peace,
    Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love.

    But never has there been a name so dear
    To this heart of mine, as the name divine,
    The precious, precious name of Jesus.
    Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
    And He’s just the same as His lovely name,
    And that's the reason why I love Him so;
    For Jesus is the sweetest name I know
  2. There is no name in earth or heaven above,
    That we should give such honour and such love
    As the blessed name, let us all acclaim,
    That wondrous, glorious name of Jesus.
  3. And some day I shall see Him face to face
    To thank and praise Him for His wondrous grace,
    Which He gave to me, when He made me free,

  1. There is a land of pure delight
    Where saints immortal reign,
    Infinite day excludes the night
    And pleasures banish pain.
    We’re feeding on the living Bread,
    We’re drinking at the fountain head
    And whoso drinketh, Jesus said,
    Shall never; never thirst again!
    What! never thirst again?
    No, never thirst again!
    What! never thirst again?
    No, never thirst again!
    And whoso drinketh, Jesus said,
    Shall never; never thirst again!
  2. There, everlasting spring abides
    And never withering flowers;
    Death, like a narrow sea divides
    This heavenly land from ours.
  3. O could we make our doubts remove
    Those gloomy thoughts that rise,
    And see the Canaan that we love
    With unbeclouded eyes!
  4. Could we but climb where Moses stood
    And view the landscape o’er,
    Not Jordan’s stream, nor death’s cold flood
    Should fright us from the shore.
    We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground
    And soon shall hear the trumpet sound,
    And then we shall with Jesus reign
    And never; never part again!
    What! never part again?
    No, never part again!
    What! never part again?
    No, never part again!
    And then we shall with Jesus reign
    And never; never part a gain!
Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

  1. There’s a land that is fairer than day,
    And by faith we can see it afar,
    For the Father waits over the way
    To prepare us a dwelling-place there.
    In the sweet by and by
    We shall meet on that beautiful shore
    In the sweet by and by
    We shall meet on that beautiful shore.
  2. We shall sing on that beautiful shore
    The melodious song of the blest,
    And our spirits shall sorrow no more,
    Not a sigh for the blessing 0f rest.
  3. To our bountiful Father above
    We will offer our tribute of praise,
    For the glorious gift of His love
    And the blessings that hallow our days.

    I have nothing to seek or to choose;
    I’ve no thought in the waste to abide,
    I have nought to regret nor to lose.

    Has led up to His Father and God,
    To the place where He’s now on the throne
    And His strength shall be mine on the road.

    When in holiness bright I sit down
    In the joy of His love ever nigh,
    In the peace that His presence shall crown.
  4. ’Tis the treasure I’ve found in His love
    That has made me a pilgrim below;
    And ’tis there, when I reach Him above,
    As I’m known, all His fullness I’ll know.
  5. And Saviour, ’tis Thou from on high
    I await till the time Thou shalt come,
    To take him Thou hast led by Thine eye
    To Thyself in Thy heavenly home.
  6. Till then ’tis the path Thou hast trod,
    My delight and my comfort shall be;
    I’m content with Thy staff and Thy rod
    Till with Thee all Thy glory I see.
John Nelson Darby (1800-82)

  1. Until I heard of Jesus’ love,
    A sinner, Lord, was I;
    I had no thought of things above,
    I was afraid to die.
    I now believe, I do believe,
    That Jesus died for me,
    That on the cross He shed His blood,
    From sin to set me free.
  2. But when I saw Thee on the cross,
    All wounded there for me,
    My very heart I thought would break,
    I felt I must love Thee.
  3. My eyes were filled with burning tears,
    For pardon then I cried
    But Jesus quickly quelled my fears;
    He said, "For thee I died."
  4. I know that God, for Jesus’ sake,
    My sin has washed away;
    Now should I die, in heaven I’ll wake,
    And sing through endless day!

    At the sound of the great Jubilee;
    We’ll all gather home in the morning,

  3. We’ll all gather home in the morning,
    Our blessed Redeemer to see!
    We’ll meet with the friends gone before us,

    To sing of redemption so free;
    We'll praise Him for grace so abounding,

    Leaning, leaning,
    Safe and secure from all alarms,
    Leaning, leaning,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.
  2. O, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms!
    O, how bright the path grows from day to day,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms!
  3. What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms?

    All our sins and griefs to bear;
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    O! what peace we often forfeit,
    O! what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer.
  2. Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged,
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful,
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness,
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
  3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,
    Cumbered with a load of care?
    Blessed Saviour, still our refuge:
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    Do thy friends despise forsake thee?
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
    Thou wilt find a solace there.
  4. Blessed Jesus, Thou hast promised
    Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
    May we ever, Lord, be bringing
    All to Thee in earnest prayer.
    Soon in glory, bright, unclouded,
    There will be no need for prayer;
    Rapture, praise and endless worship
    Shall be our sweet portion there.

    When I reach the other side,
    And His smile will be the first to welcome me.

    That prepares for me a mansion in the sky.
  3. O, the dear ones in glory,
    How they wait for me to come,
    And our paning at the river I recall;

    Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
    Count your many blessings, money cannot buy

    Why should the shadows come,
    Why should my heart be lonely,
    And long for heaven and home,
    When Jesus is my portion,
    My constant friend is He;
    His eye is on the sparrow
    And I know He watches me;
    His eye is on the sparrow,
    And I know He watches me.
    I sing because I'm happy,
    I sing because I’m free
    For His eye is on the sparrow
    And I know He watches me.
  2. "Let not your heart be troubled,"
    His tender word I hear,
    And resting on His goodness,
    I lose my doubts and fears;
    Though by the path He leadeth.
    But one step I may see;
    His eye is on the sparrow,
    And I know He watches me;
    His eye is on the sparrow
    And I know He watches me.
  3. Whenever I am tempted,
    Whenever clouds arise,
    When songs give place to sighing,
    When hope within me dies,
    I draw the closer to Him,
    From care He sets me free;
    His eye is on the sparrow,
    And I know He watches me;
    His eye is on the sparrow,
    And I know He watches me.

    Gushing from the Rock before me,
    Lo, a spring of joy I see!

    O, the fullness of His love!
    Perfect rest to me is promised

    This my song through endless ages,
    Jesus led me all the way!

361
  1. Around Thy grave, Lord Jesus,
    Thine empty grave, we stand,
    With hearts all full of praises,
    To keep Thy blest command;
    By faith, our souls 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. O, 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;
    And lo! we share Thy triumphs,
    Thou First-born from the dead.
  4. Into Thy death baptized,
    We own with Thee we died;
    With Thee, our Life, we’re risen
    And in Thee glorified:
    From sin, the world, and Satan,
    We’re ransomed by Thy blood,
    And now would walk as strangers,
    Alive with Thee to God.
James G. Deck (1807-84)
362
  1. Buried in the grave of Jesus,
    We believe what God has said;
    Faith His judgment acquiescing,
    Reckons now that we are dead.
  2. Death and judgment are behind us,
    Grace and glory are before,
    All the billows rolled o’er Jesus
    There exhausted all their power.
  3. First-fruits of the resurrection,
    He is risen from the tomb;
    Now we stand in new creation,
    Free, because beyond our doom.
  4. Jesus died and we died with Him,
    Buried in His grave we lie,
    One with Christ in resurrection,
    Seated now in Him on high.
  5. We await the full redemption
    When the risen One shall come
    And our mortal body changed,
    Shall be fashioned like His own.
  6. Lord, we share in Thy rejection,
    Thy reproach, O, may we love;
    Here we stand in Thine acceptance
    In the Father’s sight above.
Janetta W. Trench (1843-1925)
363
  1. I am Thine, O Lord! I have heard Thy voice
    And it told Thy love to me;
    But I long to rise in the arms of faith
    And be closer drawn to Thee.
    Draw me nearer; nearer blessed Lord
    To the cross where Thou hast died.
    Draw me nearer; nearer; nearer blessed Lord,
    To Thy precious wounded side.
  2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
    By the power of grace divine;
    Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope
    And my will be lost in Thine.
  3. O, the pure delight of a single hour
    That before Thy throne I spend,
    When I kneel in prayer and with Thee, my God,
    I commune as friend with friend.
  4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
    Till I cross the narrow sea;
    There are heights of joy that I may not reach
    Till I rest in peace with Thee.
Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)
364
  1. I’m not ashamed to own my Lord
    Or to defend His cause;
    Maintain the honour of His Word,
    The glory of His cross.
    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 l am happy all the day.
  2. Jesus, my Lord! I know His name,
    His name is all my trust,
    Nor will He put my soul to shame,
    Nor let my hope be lost.
  3. Firm as His throne His promise stands,
    And He can well secure
    What I’ve committed to His hands,
    ’Till the decisive hour.
  4. Then will He own my worthless name
    Before His Father’s face;
    And, in the new Jerusalem,
    Appoint my soul a place.
Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
365
  1. I bow me to Thy will, O God!
    And all Thy ways adore,
    And every day I live, I’d seek
    To please Thee more and more.
  2. Why should I care, O blessed Lord!
    Since all my cares are Thine;
    Why not in triumph live, since Thou
    Hast made Thy triumphs mine.
  3. Lead on, lead on triumphantly,
    O blessed Lord, lead on:
    Faith’s pilgrim sons behind Thee seek
    The road that Thou hast gone.
  4. He always wins who sides with God,
    To him no chance is lost;
    God’s will is sweetest to him when
    It triumphs at his cost.
  5. Ill that God blesses is our good,
    And unblessed good is ill,
    And all is right that seems most wrong,
    If it be His sweet will.
Frederick W. Faber (1814-63)

Tune B.H.B. No. 340
C.H.F. No. 527 L.M.
  1. Is it Thy will that I should be
    Buried in symbol, Lord, with Thee?
    Owning Thee by this solemn sign,
    Telling the world that I am Thine.
  2. Gladly I yield obedience now;
    In all things to Thy will I’d bow;
    I’ll follow where my Saviour led
    And humbly in His footsteps tread.
  3. This emblematic, watery grave
    Shows forth His love, who came to save
    And as I enter it, I see
    The price my Saviour paid for me.
  4. Forth from Thy burial, Lord, I come,
    For Thou hast triumphed o’er the tomb;
    Thy resurrection life I share,
    My portion is no longer here.
  5. O may I count myself to be
    Dead to the sins that wounded Thee,
    Dead to the pleasures of this earth,
    Unworthy of my heavenly birth.
  6. Lord Jesus, when I gaze on Thee
    And all Thy radiant glory see,
    That joy will far exceed the shame
    I bear on earth for Thy loved Name.
367
  1. O Jesus, I have promised
    To serve Thee to the end;
    Be Thou for ever near me,
    My Master and my friend!
    I shall not fear the battle
    If Thou art by my side,
    Nor wander from the pathway
    If Thou wilt be my Guide.
  2. O let me feel Thee near me,
    The world is ever near;
    I see the sights that dazzle,
    The tempting sounds I hear;
    My foes are ever near me,
    Around me and within;
    But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer,
    And shield my soul from sin.
  3. O let me hear Thee speaking
    In accents clear and still,
    Above the storms of passion,
    The murmurs of self-will.
    O speak to reassure me,
    To hasten or control;
    O speak, and make me listen,
    Thou guardian of my soul!
  4. O Jesus, Thou hast promised
    To all who follow Thee,
    That where Thou art in glory
    There shall Thy servant be;
    And, Jesus, I have promised
    To serve Thee to the end;
    O give me grace to follow,
    My Master and my friend!
  5. O let me see Thy footmarks,
    And in them plant mine own;
    My hope to follow duly
    Is in Thy strength alone.
    O, guide me, call me, draw me,
    Uphold me to the end;
    And then in heaven receive me,
    My Saviour and my friend!
John E. Bode (1816-1874)
368
  1. Take my life, and let it be
    Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
    Take my hands, and let them move
    At the impulse of Thy love.
  2. Take my lips, and let them be
    Filled with messages from Thee.
    Take my silver and my gold;
    Not a mite would I withhold.
  3. Take my moments and my days;
    Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
    Take my intellect, and use
    Every power as Thou shalt choose.
  4. Take my will, and make it Thine;
    It shall be no longer mine.
    Take my heart, it is Thine own;
    It shall be Thy royal throne.
  5. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
    At Thy feet its treasure store.
    Take myself, and I will be
    Ever, only, all for Thee.
Frances R. Havergal (1836-79)
369
  1. Take the world, but give me Jesus,
    All its joys are but a name,
    But His love abideth ever,
    Through eternal years the same.
    O, the height and depth of mercy!
    O, the length and breadth of love!
    O, the fullness of redemption,
    Pledge of endless life above!
  2. Take the world, but give me Jesus,
    Sweetest comfort of my soul;
    With my Saviour watching oÂ’er me,
    I can sing though billows roll.
  3. Take the world, but give me Jesus,
    Let me see His constant smile;
    Then throughout my pilgrim journey,
    Light will cheer me all the while.
  4. Take the world, but give me Jesus,
    In His cross my trust shall be;
    Till with clearer, brighter vision,
    Face to face my Lord I see.
Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)
370
  1. We bless the name of Christ the Lord,
    We bless Him for His holy Word,
    Who loved to do His Father’s will
    And all His righteousness fulfill.
  2. We follow Him with pure delight
    To sanctify His sacred rite,
    And thus our faith with water seal
    To prove obedience that we feel.
  3. Baptized in God the Father, Son
    And Holy Spirit, Three in One,
    With conscience free we rest in God,
    In love and peace, through Jesus blood.
  4. By grace we "Abba Father" cry,
    By grace the Comforter comes nigh;
    And for Thy grace our love shall be
    For ever, only, Lord for Thee.
371
  1. When we walk with the Lord
    In the light of His Word,
    What a glory He sheds on our way!
    While we do His good will
    He abides with us still,
    And with all who will trust and obey.
    Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
    To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  2. Not a shadow can rise,
    Not a cloud in the skies,
    But His smile quickly drives it away;
    Not a doubt nor a fear,
    Not a sigh nor a tear,
    Can abide while we trust and obey.
  3. Not a burden we bear,
    Not a sorrow we share
    But our toil He doth richly repay;
    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.
John H. Sammis (1846-1919)
372
  1. Am I a soldier of the cross,
    A follower of the Lamb?
    And shall I fear to own His cause,
    Or blush to speak His Name?
    In the Name, the precious Name,
    Of Him who died for me,
    By grace I’ll win the promised crown,
    Whate’er my cross may be.
  2. Must I be carried to the skies
    On flowery beds of ease,
    While others fought to win the prize
    And sailed through raging seas?
  3. Are there no foes for me to face?
    Must I not stem the flood?
    Is this vile world a friend to grace,
    To help me on to God?
  4. Since I must fight if I would reign,
    Increase my courage, Lord;
    I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
    Supported by Thy Word.
  5. Thy saints, in all this glorious war,
    Shall conquer, though they’re slain,
    They view the triumph from afar,
    And shall with Jesus reign.
Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
373
Tune R.S. No. 317
11.11.11.7.
  1. Blessed is the service of our Lord and King,
    Precious are the jewels we may help to bring;
    Down the passing ages words of counsel ring,
    He that winneth souls is wise.
    He that winneth souls is wise
    In the home beyond the skies,
    There’s a crown of glory,
    O, the wondrous prize,
    He that winneth souls is wise.
  2. In the quiet home-life, showing love’s bright ray,
    More and more like Jesus living every day,
    We may guide a dear one to the heavenward way,
    He that winneth souls is wise.
  3. Out upon the highway, going forth with prayer,
    For the lost and straying, seeking everywhere,
    Close beside the Shepherd, we His joy may share,
    He that winneth souls is wise.
  4. Sow beside all waters, sow the Gospel seed,
    Here a word in season, there a loving deed;
    Sinners to the Saviour be it ours to lead,
    He that winneth souls is wise.
Emily E. Hewitt

8.7.
  1. Brightly beams our Father’s mercy
    From His lighthouse evermore;
    But to us He gives the keeping
    Of the lights along the shore.
    Let the lower lights be burning,
    Send a gleam across the wave!
    Some poor fainting, struggling seaman,
    You may rescue, you may save
  2. Dark the night of sin has settled
    Loud the angry billows roar;
    Eager eyes are watching, longing,
    For the lights along the shore.
  3. Trim your feeble lamp, my brother
    Some poor seaman, tempest—tossed,
    Trying now to make the harbour,
    In the darkness may be lost.
  4. With the Saviour as your pilot,
    You have conquered wind and wave;
    Let His brightness shining through you,
    Be a beacon light to save.
P. P. Bliss (1838-1876)
375
  1. Call them in! the poor, the wretched,
    Sin—stained wanderers from the fold!
    Peace and pardon freely offer;
    Can you weigh their worth with gold?
    Call them in! the weak, the weary,
    Laden with the doom of sin;
    Bid them come and rest in Jesus,
    He is waiting, call them in!
  2. Call them in! the Jew, the Gentile,
    Bid the strangers to the feast;
    Call them in! — the rich, the noble,
    From the highest to the least.
    Forth the Father runs to meet them,
    He hath all their sorrows seen;
    Robe and ring, and royal sandals,
    Wait the lost ones, call them in!
  3. Call them in! the mere professors,
    Slumbering, sleeping on hell’s brink;
    Nought of life are they possessors,
    Yet of safety vainly think;
    Bring them in! the careless scoffers,
    Pleasure-seekers of the earth;
    Tell of God’s most gracious offers,
    And of Jesus’ priceless worth.
  4. Call them in! the broken hearted,
    Cowering ’neath the brand of shame;
    Speak Iove’s message low and tender,
    ’Twas for sinners Jesus came.
    See! the shadows lengthen round us,
    Soon the day—dawn will begin;
    Can you leave them lost and lonely?
    Christ is coming, call them in!
Anna Shipton (1815-1901)
376
  1. Christians, go and tell of Jesus,
    How He died to save our souls;
    How that He from sin might free us,
    Suffered agonies untold.
    Yes, we’ll go and tell of Jesus,
    The pure and holy, meek and lowly Jesus;
    Yes, we’ll go and tell of Jesus,
    Who died our souls to save.
  2. Tell the guilty of their danger,
    While they wander far from God;
    While they live to Christ a stranger
    And reject His precious Word.
  3. Tell them of the joys of heaven,
    Purchased by the Saviour’s blood,
    How, that they might be forgiven,
    Jesus left His home above.
  4. Tell them how He hath ascended
    To prepare a home on high,
    Where all sorrows shall be ended,
    Where the saved shall never die.
Edward P. Hammond (1831-19l0)
377
  1. Far, far away in heathen darkness dwelling,
    Millions of souls for ever may be lost;
    Who, who will go, salvation’s story telling,
    Looking to Jesus, counting not the cost?
    "All power is given unto Me!
    All power is given unto Me!
    Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel
    And lo I am with you alway."
  2. See, o’er the world, wide open doors inviting;
    Soldiers of Christ, arise and enter in!
    Christians, awake! your forces all uniting,
    Send forth the gospel, break the chain of sin!
  3. "Why will ye die?" the voice of God is calling:
    "Why will ye die?" re-echo in His name;
    Jesus hath died to save from death appalling,
    Life and salvation therefore go proclaim.
  4. God speed the day when those of every nation,
    "Glory to God", triumphantly shall sing.
    Ransomed, redeemed, rejoicing in salvation,
    Shout, "Hallelujah, for the Lord is King!"
James McGranahan (1840-1907)
378
  1. From Greenland’s icy mountains,
    From India’s coral strand,
    Where Afric’s sunny fountains
    Roll down their golden sand;
    From many an ancient river,
    From many a palmy plain,
    They call us to deliver
    Their land from error's chain.
  2. What though the spicy breezes
    Blow soft o’er Ceylon’s isle,
    Though every prospect pleases
    And only man is vile;
    In vain with lavish kindness
    The gifts of God are strewn;
    The heathen in his blindness
    Bows down to wood and stone.
  3. Can we whose souls are lighted
    With wisdom from on high;
    Can we, to men benighted,
    The lamp of life deny?
    Salvation! O salvation!
    The joyful sound proclaim,
    Till earth’s remotest nation
    Has heard the Saviour’s name!
  4. Waft, waft ye winds, His story,
    And you, ye waters, roll
    Till like a sea of glory,
    It spreads from pole to pole;
    Till o’er our ransomed nature
    The Lamb for sinners slain,
    Redeemer, King, Creator,
    In bliss returns to reign!
Reginald Heber (1783-1826)
379
  1. Hark the voice of Jesus crying,
    "Who will go and work today?
    Fields are white and harvest waiting,
    Who will bear the sheaves away?"
    Loud and strong the Master calleth,
    Rich reward He offers thee,
    Who will answer, gladly saying,
    "Here am I, send me, send me.”
  2. If you cannot cross the ocean
    And the heathen lands explore,
    You can find the heathen nearer,
    You can help them at your door.
    If you cannot give your thousands,
    You can give the widow’s mite
    And the least you do for Jesus
    Will be precious in His sight.
  3. Let none hear you idly saying,
    "There is nothing I can do,"
    While the souls of men are dying
    And the Master calls for you.
    Take the task He gives you gladly,
    Let His work your pleasure be;
    Answer quickly when He calleth,
    "Here am I; send me, send me."
Daniel March (1816-1909)
380
  1. Hark! ’tis the Shepherd’s voice I hear,
    Out in the desert dark and drear,
    Calling the sheep who’ve gone astray,
    Far from the Shepherd’s fold away.
    Bring them in, bring them in!
    Bring them in from the fields of sin;
    Bring them in, bring them in!
    Bring the wandering ones to Jesus.
  2. Who’ll go and help this Shepherd kind,
    Help Him the wandering ones to find?
    Who’ll bring the lost ones to the fold,
    Where they’ll be sheltered from the cold?
  3. Out in the desert hear their cry,
    Out on the mountain wild and high,
    Hark! ’tis the Master speaks to thee:
    "Go, find My sheep where’er they be."
Alexcenah Thomas
381
  1. Hark! ’tis the watchman’s cry,
    Wake, brethren, wake!
    Jesus, our Lord is nigh,
    Wake, brethren, wake!
    Sleep is for sons of night,
    Ye are children of the light,
    Yours is the glory bright!
    Wake, brethren, wake!
  2. Call to each waking band,
    Watch, brethren, watch!
    Clear is our Lord’s command,
    Watch, brethren, watch!
    Be ye as men that wait
    Always at the Master’s gate,
    E’en though the hour seem late!
    Watch, brethren, watch!
  3. Hear we the Shepherd’s voice,
    Pray, brethren, pray!
    Would ye His heart rejoice?
    Pray, brethren, pray!
    Sin calls for constant fear,
    Weakness needs the strong One near,
    Long as ye struggle here!
    Pray, brethren, pray!
  4. Heed we the steward’s call,
    Work, brethren, work!
    There’s room enough for all!
    Work, brethren, work!
    This vineyard of the Lord
    Constant labour doth afford,
    Yours is a sure reward!
    Work, brethren, work!
  5. Now sound the final chord,
    Praise, brethren, praise!
    Thrice holy is our Lord,
    Praise, brethren, praise!
    What more befits the tongues
    Soon to lead the eternal songs,
    While heaven the note prolongs,
    Praise, brethren, praise!
Philipp Nicolai (1556-1608)
382
  1. How many sheep are straying,
    Lost from the Saviour’s fold;
    Upon the lonely mountains
    They shiver with the cold;
    Within the tangled thickets
    Where poison vines do creep,
    And over rocky ledges
    Wander the poor lost sheep.
    O come let us go and find them,
    In the paths of death they roam.
    At the close of the day 'twill be sweet to say,
    "I have brought some lost one home."
  2. O who will seek to find them?
    Who for the Saviour’s sake
    Will search with tireless patience
    Through brier and through brake?
    Unheeding thirst and hunger,
    Who still from day to day
    Will seek as for a treasure,
    The sheep that went astray?
  3. Say will you seek to find them?
    From pleasant bowers of ease
    Will you go forth determined
    To find the least of these?
    For still the Saviour calls them,
    And looks across the Wold;
    And still He holds wide open
    The door into His fold.
  4. How sweet ’twould be at evening
    lf you and I could say,
    "Good Shepherd we’ve been seeking
    The sheep that went astray;
    Heart-sore and faint with hunger.
    We heard them making moan,
    And lo! with joy returning,
    We bear them safely home."
E. M. H. Gates
383
  1. How sweet to work for Jesus!
    How sweet as days go by,
    To toil for Him, Who died for sin,
    Our Master now on high.
    Yes, work for Him is blessed,
    More blest than tongue can tell;
    We work and wait outside the gate,
    Inside by faith we dwell.
  2. How sweet to work for Jesus!
    And now, at close of day,
    Our songs of praise to Him we raise,
    Who leads us on life’s way.
    We lift our eyes to heaven,
    And See the glory shine
    And now, tonight in Him delight
    And say, "My Lord is mine?
  3. How sweet to work for Jesus!
    And each day nearer home,
    To tell the love that beams above,
    Until the Lord shall come.
    To preach and sing of Jesus,
    To pray for those in sin,
    Until at last, the desert past,
    We shall be home with Him.
  4. How sweet to work for Jesus!
    O, keep us close to Thee,
    Until our feet rest on the street
    Where faith’s fair mansions be.
    Until our eyes are gazing
    Upon our Saviour’s brow;
    Till then we wait, outside the gate,
    And work for Jesus now.
384
  1. I have only one life on this earth
    And as vapour, ’tis passing away,
    I must labour for treasures of worth
    E’er toil ends at the end of the day.
    Only one life to give,
    I must never withhold it from God,
    Only one life to live,
    I must not miss the "well done" from God,
  2. Only one life and white is the field,
    With compassion this great need I view,
    This one life that I have I will yield
    And the little I can I will do.
  3. This one life that I have I may lose
    And in losing a hundredfold gain,
    Then my all on the altar I’ll choose
    And be broken, God’s best to obtain.
  4. One poor life, small the offering at best,
    Yet the world and the flesh often call,
    This my answer must be to each test,
    I’ll not serve God with less than my all.

  1. Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
    Doth its successive journeys run;
    His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
    Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
  2. To Him shall endless prayer be made,
    And endless praises crown His head;
    His name like sweet perfume shall rise
    With every morning sacrifice.
  3. People and realms of every tongue
    Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
    And infant voices shall proclaim
    Their early blessings on His name.
  4. Blessings abound where’er He reigns,
    The prisoner leaps to lose his chains;
    The weary find eternal rest,
    And all the sons of want are blest.
  5. Let every creature rise and bring
    Peculiar honours to our King;
    Angels descend with songs again;
    And earth repeat the loud Amen!
Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
386
  1. Lord, speak to me, that I may speak
    In living echoes of Thy tone;
    As Thou hast sought, so let me seek
    Thy erring children, lost and lone.
  2. O lead me, Lord, that I may lead
    The wandering and the wavering feet;
    O feed me, Lord, that I may feed
    Thy hungering ones with manna sweet.
  3. O teach me, Lord, that I may teach
    The precious things Thou dost impart;
    And wing my words that they may reach
    The hidden depths of many a heart.
  4. O fill me with Thy fullness, Lord,
    Until my very heart o’erflow
    In kindling thought and glowing word,
    Thy love to tell, Thy praise to show.
  5. O use me, Lord, use even me,
    Just as Thou wilt, and when, and where,
    Until Thy blessed face I see;
    Thy rest, Thy joy, Thy glory share.
Frances R. Havergal (1836-79)

8.7.8.5.
  1. May the mind of Christ, my Saviour
    Live in me from day to day,
    By His love and power controlling
    All I do and say.
  2. May the Word of God dwell richly
    In my heart from hour to hour,
    So that all may see I triumph
    Only through His power.
  3. May the peace of God my Father
    Rule my life in everything,
    That I may be calm to comfort
    Sick and sorrowing.
  4. May the love of Jesus fill me
    As the waters fill the sea;
    Him exalting, self abasing,
    This is victory.
  5. May I run the race before me,
    Strong and brave to face the foe,
    Looking only unto Jesus
    As I onward go.
  6. May His beauty rest upon me
    As I seek the lost to win,
    And may they forget the channel,
    Seeing only Him.
Kate B. Wilkinson (1859-1928)
388
  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 Saviour so?
    Not one soul with which to greet Him?
    Must I empty-handed go?
  2. Not at death I shrink or falter,
    For my Saviour 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 Saviour;
    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.
Charles C. Luther (1847-1924)
389
  1. O, for a thousand tongues to sing
    My great Redeemer’s praise!
    The glories of my God and King,
    The triumphs of His grace.
  2. Jesus, the name that charms our fears,
    That bids our sorrows cease;
    ’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
    ’Tis life and health and peace.
  3. He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
    He sets the prisoner free;
    His blood can make the foulest clean,
    His blood availed for me.
  4. See all your sins on Jesus laid:
    The Lamb of God was slain,
    His soul was once an offering made
    For every soul of man.
  5. He speaks and, listening to His voice,
    New life the dead receive,
    The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
    The humble poor believe.
  6. My gracious Master and my God,
    Assist me to proclaim,
    And spread through all the earth abroad
    The honours of Thy name.
Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
390
  1. Sorry, this hymn is copyrighted.
  1. Out in the highways and byways of life,
    Many are weary and sad;
    Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,
    Making the sorrowing glad.
    Make me a blessing,
    Make me a blessing,
    Out of my life may Jesus shine;
    Make me a blessing, O Saviour; I pray,
    Make me a blessing to someone today.
  2. Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,
    Tell of His power to forgive;
    Others will trust Him if only you prove
    True, every moment you live.
  3. Give as ’twas given to you in your need,
    Love as the Master loved you;
    Be to the helpless a helper indeed,
    Unto your mission be true.
Ira B. Wilson (1880-1950)
391
  1. Over the mountains so bleak and so cold,
    Far from the beautiful city of gold,
    Lost ones are straying because you and I
    Never have told them a Saviour stood nigh.
    O won’t somebody tell them?
    Tell them of Calvary’s tree;
    Tell them the story of Jesus,
    What a great Saviour is He!
  2. Lost ones are groping in sin’s awful night,
    Falling and dying away from the right;
    Many the message of Christ never heard,
    Lost ones for whom no one ever has cared.
  3. Speed with the message, O speed in His name!
    Hasten the story of Christ to proclaim!
    Hasten to bring back the fallen and lost!
    Speed with the message, whatever the cost!
W. C. Poole
392
  1. Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
    Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
    Weep o’er the erring ones, lift up the fallen,
    Tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save.
    Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
    Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
  2. Though they are slighting Him, still He is waiting,
    Waiting the penitent soul to receive.
    Plead with them earnestly, plead with them gently;
    He will forgive if they only believe.
  3. Rescue the perishing, duty demands it;
    Strength for thy labour the Lord will provide;
    On to the narrow way patiently win them;
    Tell the poor wanderer a Saviour has died.
Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)
393
  1. Revive Thy work, O Lord!
    Thy mighty arm make bare;
    Speak with the voice that wakes the dead,
    And make Thy people hear.
    Revive Thy work, O Lord,
    And give refreshing showers;
    The glory shall be all Thine own
    The blessing shall be ours.
  2. Revive Thy work, O Lord!
    Disturb this sleep of death;
    Quicken the smould’ring embers now
    By Thine almighty breath.
  3. Revive Thy work, O Lord!
    Create soul-thirst for Thee,
    And hungering for the bread of life,
    O, may our spirits be.
  4. Revive Thy work, O Lord!
    Exalt Thy precious name,
    And by the Holy Ghost our love
    For Thee and Thine inflame.
  5. Revive Thy work, O Lord!
    Let many souls be saved;
    Make bare Thine arm, and rescue men,
    By nature all depraved.
  6. Then fit us for Thy work,
    Endue with power divine;
    Lord, keep us earnest in Thy cause,
    The glory shall be Thine!
Albert Midlane (1825-1909)

  1. So send I you to labour unrewarded,
    To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
    To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and suffering,
    So send I you to toil for Me alone.
  2. So send I you to bind the bruised and broken,
    O’er wandering souls to work, to weep, to wake,
    To bear the burdens of a world a-weary,
    So send I you to suffer for My sake.
  3. So send I you to loneliness and longing,
    With heart a-hungering for the loved and known,
    Forsaking home and kindred, friend and dear one,
    So send I you to know My love alone.
  4. So send I you to leave your life’s ambition,
    To die to dear desire, self—will resign,
    To labour long and love where men revile you,
    So send I you to lose your life in Mine.
  5. So send I you to hearts made hard by hatred,
    To eyes made blind because they will not see,
    To spend, though it be blood, to spend and spare not,
    So send I you to tell of Calvary.
E. Margaret Clarkson (1915- )

  1. Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
    Sowing in the noontide, and the dewy eve,
    Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
    We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
    Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
    We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
  2. Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
    Fearing neither clouds nor winter’s chilling breeze;
    By and by the harvest, and the labour ended,
    We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
  3. Go then, ever weeping, sowing for the Master,
    Though the loss sustained our spirit often grieves;
    When our weeping’s over, He will bid us welcome,
    We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
Knowles Shaw
396
  1. Sowing the seed by the daylight fair,
    Sowing the seed by the noonday glare;
    Sowing the seed by the fading light,
    Sowing the seed in the solemn night,
    O, what shall the harvest be?
    O, what shall the harvest be?
    Sown in the darkness, or sown in the light,
    Sown in our weakness, or sown in our might;
    Gathered in time or eternity.
    Sure, ah, sure will the harvest be!
  2. Sowing the seed by the wayside high,
    Sowing the Seed on the rocks to die;
    Sowing the seed where the thorns will spoil,
    Sowing the seed in the fertile soil,
    O, what shall the harvest be?
    O, what shall the harvest be?
  3. Sowing the seed with an aching heart,
    Sowing the seed while the teardrops start,
    Sowing in hope till the reapers come,
    Gladly to gather the harvest home,
    O, what shall the harvest be?
    O, what shall the harvest be?
Emily S. Oakey (1828-83)

  1. Speed Thy servants, Saviour speed them,
    Thou art Lord of winds and waves;
    They were bound, but Thou hast freed them,
    Now they go to free the slaves;
    Be Thou with them,
    ’Tis Thine arm alone that saves.
  2. Friends and homes and all forsaking,
    Lord, they go at Thy command,
    As their stay Thy promise taking,
    While they traverse sea and land;
    O, be with them!
    Lead them safely by the hand.
  3. Where no fruit appears to cheer them,
    And they seem to toil in vain,
    Then in mercy, Lord, draw near them,
    Then their sinking hopes sustain;
    Thus supported,
    Let their zeal revive again.
  4. In the midst of opposition,
    Let them trust, O Lord, in Thee;
    When success attends their mission,
    Let Thy servants humble be;
    Never leave them,
    Till Thy face in heaven they see.
  5. There to reap in joy for ever,
    Fruit that grows from seed here sown,
    There to be with Him who never
    Ceases to preserve His own,
    And with triumph,
    Sing a Saviour’s grace alone.
Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)
398
8.7.8.7. and chorus
  1. Take the name of Jesus with you,
    Child of sorrow and of woe;
    It will joy and comfort give you
    Take it, then, where’er you go.
    Precious name, O, how sweet!
    Hope of earth, and joy of heaven.
  2. Take the name of Jesus ever,
    As a shield from every snare;
    If temptations round you gather
    Breathe that holy name in prayer.
  3. O, the precious name of Jesus!
    How it thrills our souls with joy,
    When His loving arms receive us
    And His songs our tongues employ!
  4. At the name of Jesus bowing,
    Falling prostrate at His feet;
    King of kings in heaven we`ll crown Him,
    When our journey is complete.
Lydia Baxter (1809-74)
399
  1. The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended;
    The darkness falls at Thy behest;
    To Thee our morning hymns ascended,
    Thy praise shall sanctify our rest.
  2. We thank Thee that Thy church, unsleeping,
    While earth rolls onward into light,
    Through all the world her watch is keeping,
    And rests not now by day or night.
  3. As o’er each continent and island
    The dawn leads on another day,
    The voice of prayer is never silent,
    Nor dies the strain of praise away.
  4. The sun that bids us rest is waking
    Our brethren ’neath the western sky,
    And hour by hour fresh lips are making
    Thy wondrous doings heard on high.
  5. So be it, Lord! Thy throne shall never,
    Like earth’s proud empires, pass away;
    Thy kingdom stands and grows for ever,
    Till all Thy creatures own Thy sway.
John Ellerton (1826-93)

  1. There’s a call comes ringing o’er the restless wave:
    "Send the light, send the light!"
    There are souls to rescue, there are souls to save,
    Send the light, send the light!
    Send the light the blessed gospel light!
    Lei it shine from shore to shore!
    Send the light and let its radiant beams
    Light the world for evermore!
  2. We have heard the Macedonian call today:
    "Send the light, send the light!”
    And our grateful offerings at the cross we lay,
    Send the light, send the light!
  3. Let us pray that grace may everywhere abound,
    Send the light, send the light!
    And a Christ—like spirit everywhere be found,
    Send the light, send the light!
  4. Let us not grow weary in the work of love,
    Send the light, send the light!
    Let us gather jewels for our crown above,
    Send the light, send the light!
Charles H. Gabriel (1856-1932)
401
  1. There’s a royal banner given for display
    To the soldiers of the King;
    As an ensign fair we lift it up today,
    While as ransomed ones we sing.
    Marching On! Marching on!
    For Christ count everything but loss;
    And to crown Him King, toil and sing,
    ’Neath the banner of the cross!
  2. Though the foe may rage and gather as the flood,
    Let the standard be displayed!
    And beneath its folds, as soldiers of the Lord,
    For the truth be not dismayed!
  3. Over land and sea, wherever man may dwell
    Make the glorious tidings known
    Of the crimson banner, now the story tell,
    While the Lord shall claim His own.
  4. When the glory dawns — ’tis drawing very near;
    It is hastening day by day,
    Then before our King the foe shall disappear
    And the cross the world shall sway!
Daniel W. Whittle (1840-1901)

Tune R.S. No. 7
11.11.11.11.and chorus
  1. To God be the glory! Great things He hath done;
    So loved He the world that He gave us His Son;
    Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
    And opened the Life-gate that all may go in.
    Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
    Let the earth hear His voice!
    Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
    Let His people rejoice!
    O, come to the Father; through Jesus the Son,
    And give Him the glory!
    Great things He hath done.
  2. O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
    To every believer the free gift of God;
    The vilest offender who truly believes,
    That moment, through Jesus, a pardon receives.
  3. Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,
    And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
    But purer, and higher, and greater will be
    Our wonder, our triumph, when Jesus we see.
Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)
403
  1. To the work! to the work! we are servants of God,
    Let us follow the path that our Master has trod;
    With the balm of His counsel our strength to renew,
    Let us do with our might what our hands find to do.
    Toiling on, toiling on, toiling on, toiling on,
    Let us hope and trust, Let us watch and pray,
    And labour till the Master comes.
  2. To the work! to the work! let the hungry be fed;
    To the fountain of life, let the weary be led;
    In the cross and its banner our glory shall be,
    While we herald the tidings, "Salvation is free."
  3. To the work! to the work! there is labour for all,
    For the kingdom of darkness and error shall fall,
    And the name of Jehovah exalted shall be
    In the loud swelling chorus, "Salvation is free."
  4. To the work! to the work! pressing on to the end,
    For the harvest will come and the reapers descend;
    And the home of the ransomed our dwelling shall be,
    And our chorus for ever, "Salvation is free."
Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)
404
  1. We have heard the joyful sound:
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    Tell the message all around:
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    Bear the news to every land,
    Climb the steeps and cross the waves,
    Onward, ’tis our Lord’s command:
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
  2. Waft it on the rolling tide;
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    Tell to sinners far and wide:
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    Sing, ye islands of the sea!
    Echo back ye ocean Caves!
    Earth shall keep her jubilee,
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
  3. Sing above the toil and strife:
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    By His death and endless life,
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    Sing it softly through the gloom,
    When the heart for mercy craves;
    Sing in triumph o’er the tomb,
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
  4. Let the trembling sinner hear:
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    This will chase away his fear,
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
    Shout salvation full and free,
    To every strand that ocean laves
    This our song of victory,
    Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Priscilla J. Owens (1829-1907)
405
  1. We’ve a story to tell to the nations,
    That shall turn their hearts to the right;
    A story of truth and mercy,
    A story of peace and light,
    A story of peace and light.
    For the darkness shall turn to dawning,
    And the dawning to noon-day bright,
    And Christ’s great kingdom shall come to earth,
    The kingdom of love and light.
  2. We’ve a song to be sung to the nations,
    That shall lift their hearts to the Lord;
    A song that shall conquer evil,
    And shatter the spear and sword,
    And shatter the spear and sword.
  3. We’ve a message to give to the nations,
    That the Lord who reigneth above
    Hath sent us His Son to save us,
    And show us that God is love,
    And show us that God is love.
  4. We’ve a Saviour to show to the nations,
    Who the path of sorrow has trod,
    That all of the world’s great peoples,
    Might come to the truth of God,
    Might come to the truth of God.

  1. Work, for the night is coming,
    Work through the morning hours;
    Work while the dew is sparkling,
    Work ’mid springing flowers;
    Work when the day grows brighter,
    Under the glowing sun;
    Work, for the night is coming,
    When man’s work is done.
  2. Work, for the night is coming,
    Work through the sunny noon;
    Fill the bright hours with labour,
    Rest comes sure and soon,
    Give to each flying minute
    Something to keep in store;
    Work, for the night is coming,
    When man works no more.
  3. Work, for the night is coming,
    Under the sunset skies;
    While their bright tints are glowing,
    Work for daylight flies.
    Work till the last beam fadeth.
    Fadeth to shine no more;
    Work while the night is darkening,
    When man’s work is o’er.
407
  1. Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim,
    And publish abroad His wonderful name;
    The name, all victorious, of Jesus extol;
    His kingdom is glorious and rules over all.
  2. God ruleth on high, almighty to save
    And still He is nigh, His presence we have.
    The great congregation His triumph shall sing,
    Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.
  3. Salvation to God Who sits on the throne;
    Let all cry aloud and honour the Son;
    The praises of Jesus all angels proclaim;
    Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb.
  4. Then let us adore and give Him His right;
    All glory and power, all wisdom and might;
    All honour and blessing, with angels above
    And thanks never ceasing, and infinite love
Charles Wesley (1707-88)
