Spirit Divine ! attend our prayers.

And make our hearts Thy home ;

Descend with all Thy gracious powers

Oh come, great Spirit, come !

Our emptiness and woe ;

And lead us in those paths of life

Where all the righteous go.

 

3 Come as the fire—- and purge our

Like sacrificial flame ; [hearts,

Let our whole soul an offering be

To our Redeemer’s name.

The truth Thy words reveal :

Cause us to run the heavenly way,

Delighting in Thy will.

 

3 Thy teachings make us know

The mysteries of Thy love ;

The vanity of things below,

The joy of things above.

 

4 While through this maze we stray,

Oh, spread Thy beams abroad ;

Disclose the dangers of the way,

And guide our steps to God.

A remnant weak and small,

Hail Him who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all !

Go, spread your trophies at His feet,

And crown Him Lord of all !

On this terrestrial ball,

To Him all majesty ascribe,

We at His feet may fall ;

Join in the everlasting song,

And crown Him Lord of all !

205 Oh, could I speak the matchless worth

Which in my Saviour shine,

I’d soar, and touch the heavenly strings,

And vie with Gabriel, while he sings

In notes almost divine.

I’d sing the precious blood He spilt,

My ransom from the dreadful guilt

Of sin, and wrath divine :

I’d sing His glorious righteousness,

In which all -perfect, heavenly dress

My soul shall ever shine.

 

3

I’d sing the characters He bears,

And all the forms of love He wears,

Exalted on His throne :

In loftiest songs of sweetest praise

I would, to everlasting days,

Make all His glories known.

Well, the delightful day will come

When my dear Lord will take me home,

And I shall see His face ;

Then with my Saviour, Brother, Friend,

A blest eternity I’ll spend,

Triumphant in His grace !

Thy love is unchanging—- for ever the same !

We bless and adore Thee, O Saviour and King ;

With joy and thanksgiving Thy praises we sing !

 

3

The strength of the hills and the depths of the sea,

The earth and its fulness, belong unto Thee ;

And yet to the lowly Thou bendest Thine ear,

So ready their humble petitions to hear !

Thine infinite goodness our tongues shall employ ;

Thou givest us richly all things to enjoy ;

We’ll follow Thy footsteps, we’ll rest in Thy love,

And soon we shall praise Thee in mansions above !

Wherever they roam, they turn to their rest :

From them fondly learning, my soul

would take wing ;

To Thee so returning, my God and my King.

O happy the choirs who praise Thee

above !

What joy tunes their lyres ! their worship is love.

Yet safe in Thy keeping and happy they be

In this world of weeping, whose strength is in Thee.

Of springs that convey new life as they flow :

The God they rely on, their strength

shall renew,

Till each, brought to Zion, His glory shall mView.

And our hearts be stayed on Thee.

216 I heard the voice of Jesus say

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

” Come unto Me, and rest :

Lay down, thou weary one, lay down

Thy head upon My breast.”

I came to Jesus as I was—

Weary, and worn, and sad ;

I found in Him a resting-place,

And He has made me glad.

 

2

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

” Behold, I freely give

The living water—- thirsty one,

Stoop down, and drink, and live ”

I came to Jesus, and I drank

Of that life-giving stream ;

My thirst was quenched, my soul revived

And now I live in Him.

 

3

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

“lam this dark world’s Light ;

Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,

And all thy day be bright.”

I looked to Jesus, and I found

In Him my Star, my Sun ;

And in that light of life I’ll walk,

Till travelling days are done.

What holy joys are there ;

What radiancy of glory,

What bliss beyond compare.

They stand, those halls of Zion,

All jubilant with song,

And bright with many an angel $

And there, from toil released,

The shout of them that triumph,,

The song of them that feast.

Praise Him ! praise Him ! I’ll praise Him all the time!

 

2

When on the cross my Lord I saw,

Nailed there by sins of mine,

Fast fell the burning tears ; but now

I’m singing all the time.

When fierce temptations try my heart,

I’ll sing, ” Jesus is mine ! ”

And so, though tears at times may

I’m singing all the time. [start,

Till others, with the glad new song,

Go singing all the time.

He brings me near His throne.

Of this our song, above,

In endless adoration.

And everlasting love.

 



 

227 Jesus, lover of my soul

Jesus, Lover of my soul,

Let me to Thy bosom fly,

While the nearer waters roll,

While the tempest still is high ;

Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,

Till the storm of life is past ;

Safe into the haven guide.

Oh, receive my soul at last !

 

2

Other refuge have I none,

Hangs my helpless soul on Thee ;

Leave, oh, leave me not alone,

Still support and comfort me :

All my trust on Thee is stayed,

All my help from Thee I bring ;

Cover my defenceless head

With the shadow of Thy wing.

 

3

Thou, O Christ, art all I want ;

More than all in Thee I find :

Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,

Heal the sick, and lead the blind :

Just and holy is Thy name,

I am all unrighteousness ;

Vile, and full of sin I am,

Thou art full of truth and grace.

 

4

Plenteous grace with Thee is found—-

Grace to cover all my sin :

Let the healing streams abound ;

Make me, keep me pure within :

Thou of life the Fountain art,

Freely let me take of Thee :

Spring Thou up within my heart,

Rise to all eternity.

 



 

228 The church’s one foundation

The church’s one foundation

Is Jesus Christ her Lord ;

She is His new creation

By water and the Word :

From Heaven He came and sought her

To be His holy bride ;

With His own blood He bought her,

And for her life He died.

 

2

Elect from every nation,

Yet one o’er all the earth ;

Her charter of salvation—-

One Lord, one faith, one birth;

One holy Name she blesses,

Partakes one holy food ;

And to one hope she presses,

With every grace endued.

 

3

Though with a scornful wonder

Men see her sore opprest,

By schisms rent asunder,

By heresies distrest :

Yet saints their watch are keeping,

Their cry goes up, ” How long ? ”

And soon the night of weeping

Shall be the morn of song.

 

4

‘Mid toil and tribulation,

And tumults of her war,

She waits the consummation

Of peace for evermore ;

Till with the vision glorious

Her longing eyes are blest,

And the great church victorious,

Shall be the church at rest.

 

5

Yet she on earth hath union

With God the Three in One,

And mystic sweet communion

With those whose rest is won:

Oh, happy ones and holy !

Lord, give us grace, that we,

Like them, the meek and lowly,

On high may dwell with Thee !

 



 

229 Great is the Lord, who ruleth over all

Great is the Lord, who ruleth over all :

Wake, wake, and sing ! wake, wake, and sing !

Down at His feet in adoration fall—-

Praise and magnify our King !

 

O ye redeemed above, strike, strike your harps

of love !

Hail the Blessed One ! hail the Mighty One !

Sweetly His wonders tell, loudly His glory swell—-

Praise and magnify our King !

 

2

Great is the Lord, who spake and it was done :

Honour and strength, dominion He has won.

 

3

Great is the Lord ! oh, come with holy mirth ;

Come and rejoice, ye nations of the earth.

 

4

Great is the Lord, and holy is His name !

Angels and men, His wondrous works proclaim.

 



 

230 Come, every joyful heart

Come, every joyful heart,

That loves the Saviour’s name,

Your noblest powers exert

To celebrate His fame ;

Tell all above and all below,

The debt of love to Him you owe.

 

2

He left His starry crown,

And laid His robes aside ;

On wings of love came down.

And wept, and bled, and died :

What he endured no tongue can tell,

To save our souls from death and hell.

 

3

From the dark grave He rose—-

The mansion of the dead;

And thence His mighty foes

In glorious triumph led:

Up through the sky the Conqueror rode,

And reigns on high, the Saviour God.

 

4

From thence He’ll quickly come—-

His chariot will not stay—-

And bear our spirits home

To realms of endless day :

There shall we see His lovely face,

And ever be in His embrace.

 



 

231 Hark, hark! My soul! Angelic songs are swelling

Hark, hark ! my soul ! angelic songs are swelling

O’er earth’s green fields and ocean s

wave-beat shore ;

How sweet the truth those blessed

strains are telling

Of that new life when sin shall be no more.

 

Angels, sing on ! your faithful watches keeping ;

Sing us sweet fragments of the songs above ;

Till morning’s joy shall end the night of weeping,

And life’s long shadows break in cloudless love.

 

2

Far, far away, like bells at evening

pealing, [and sea

The voice of Jesus sounds o’er land

And laden souls, by thousands meekly

stealing,

Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to Thee.

 

3

Onward we go, for still we hear them

singing, [bids you come ” ;

” Come, weary souls ! for Jesus

And through the dark, its echoes

sweetly ringing,

The music of the Gospel leads us home.

 

232 Wake thou my harp, o mighty love

Wake Thou my harp, O Mighty Love,

That fiirst the boundless realm above !

Sweep Thou my strings, for I would sing

Redeeming grace through Christ my King.

 

Redeeming grace, redeeming grace,

That gives my soul a resting-place ;

I’ll sing, while time rolls on apace,

Redeeming grace, redeeming grace.

 

2

Thou great First Cause of mortal good,

Whose throne through endless years has stood,

Instruct my feeble voice to sing

Redeeming grace through Christ my King.

 

3

The spark has kindled to a flame ;

My soul, rejoicing in Thy name.

Bids all within me join and sing

Redeeming grace through Christ my King.

 

4

And when my spirit flees away [day.

From all that cheers life’s fleeting

With saints around Thy throne I’ll

sing

Redeeming grace through Christ my King

 



 

233 God is love, His word pro-claims it

” God is Love ! “—–His Word pro-claims it,

Day by day the truth we prove ;

Heaven and earth with joy are telling.

Ever telling, ” God is Love !

 

Hallelujah ! tell the story,

Sung by angel choirs above ;

Sounding forth the mighty chorus—-

“God is Light, and God is Love !

 

2

” God is Love ! —–oh, tell it gladly,

How the Saviour from above

Came to seek and save the lost ones.

Showing thus the Father’s love.

 

3

” God is Love ! —-oh, boundless mercy—-

May we all its fulness prove !

Telling those who sit in darkness,

” God is Light, and God is Love !

 



 

234 Let us sing again the praise of the saviour

Let us sing again the praise of the Saviour,

How He died that we might know the Father’s love;

Let us tell to all the world His compassion, [above.

How He ever lives to plead for us

 

Let us tell … the wondrous story,

How He died . . . upon the tree ;

Unto Him be all the praise and the glory ;

He hath suffered that from sin we might be

free. . . .

 

2

Let us praise Him for the words full of comfort,

That He left for us recorded long ago;

He is near to every one that believeth,

And His mercy to the faithful He will show.

 

3

Let us praise Him for the soul-cheering promise

Of the mansions that our eyes shall yet behold ;

When we gather with the blest in

His kingdom,

Where the riches of His grace can ne’er be told.

 

235 My faith looks up to thee

My faith looks up to Thee,

Thou Lamb of Calvary,

Saviour divine ;

Now hear me while I pray ;

Take all my guilt away ;

Oh, let me from this day

Be wholly Thine.

 

2

May Thy rich grace impart

Strength to my fainting heart,

My zeal inspire :

As Thou hast died for me,

Oh, may my love to Thee

Pure, warm, and changeless be—–

A living fire.

 

3

While life’s dark maze I tread,

And griefs around me spread,

Be Thou my Guide :

Bid darkness turn to day,

Wipe sorrow’s tears away ;

Nor let me ever stray

From Thee aside.

 

4

When ends life’s transient dream—-

When death’s cold, sullen stream

Shall o’er me roll—-

Blest Saviour, then in love,

Fear and distrust remove ;

Oh, bear me safe above—-

A ransomed soul.

 

236 Come, oh come, and let us worship

Come, oh come, and let us worship,

Gathered in the house of prayer ;

Praise the God of our salvation

While He waits to meet us there.

 

Come, oh come, and let us worship.

Bringing songs of love and praise,

Unto Him whose loving kindness

Has been o’er us all our days.

 

2

He hath pardoned our transgressions

Taken all our sins away ;

He will lead us, by His Spirit,

Safely to the perfect day.

 

3

Soon our trials will be ended,

And, among the loved and blest,

We shall join the bright immortals

In that Home of joy and rest.

 



 

237 Rock of Ages, cleft for me

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee;

Let the water and the blood,

From Thy riven side which flowed,

Be of sin the double cure,

Save me from its guilt and power.

 

2

Not the labour of my hands

Can fulfil Thy law’s demands;

Could my zeal no respite know,

Could my tears for ever flow,

All for sin could not atone;

Thou must save, and Thou alone.

 

3

Nothing in my hand I bring;

Simply to Thy Cross I cling!

Naked, come to Thee for dress;

Helpless, look to Thee for grace:

Foul, I to the fountain fly;

Wash me, Saviour, or I die.

 

4

While I draw this fleeting breath,

When mine eyes shall close in death,

When I soar to worlds unknown,

See Thee on Thy Judgment-throne;

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee.

 

238 God of Love, and God of might

God of love, and God of might,

God of truth, and God of light,

Heart and voice we would unite,

Giving praise to Thee.

 

2

With the sweets of morning’s balm,

With the hush of evening’s calm,

Fervent hymn and holy psalm

Rise continually.

 

3

We adore Thee, God most high,

We Thy mercy magnify ;

On Thy word our souls rely,

Trusting peacefully.

 

4

We have heard Thy words of cheer

On our pilgrim journey here ;

We have known Thy presence near,

Shining constantly.

 



 

239 In the cross of Christ I glory

In the cross of Christ I glory,

Towering o’er the wrecks of time ;

All the light of sacred story

Gathers round its head sublime.

 

2

When the woes of life o’ertake me,

Hopes deceive, and fears annoy,

Never shall the cross forsake me ;

Lo ! it glows with peace and joy.

 

3

When the sun of bliss is beaming

Light and love upon my way,

From the cross the radiance streaming

Adds new lustre to the day.

 

4

Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,

By the cross are sanctified ;

Peace is there that knows no

measure,

Joys that through all time abide.

 

240 I’ve learned to sing a glad new song

I’ve learned to sing a glad new song

Of praise unto our King !

And now with all my ransomed powers

His praises I will sing.

 

His praises I will sing !

He is my Lord and King !

And now with all my ransomed powers

His praises I will sing !

 

2

I’ve learned to sing the song of peace,

‘Tis sweeter every day,

Since Jesus calmed my troubled soul,

And bore my sins away.

 

3

I sing the song of perfect love,

It casteth out all fear !

Oh breadth, oh length, oh depth, oh height !

Oh love so full of cheer !

 

4

I’ve learned to sing the song of joy;

My cup is running o’er

With blessings full of peace and love :

And still there’s more and more.

 

5

Soon I shall sing the new, new song

Of Moses and the Lamb,

With all the sainted hosts above,

Before the great I AM !

 



 

241 My saviour’s praises I will sing

My Saviour’s praises I will sing,

And all His love express ;

Whose mercies each returning day,

Proclaim His faithfulness.

 

” Every day will I bless Thee !

Every day will I bless Thee !

And I will praise, will praise

Thy name for ever and ever ! ”

 

2

Redeemed by His almighty power,

My Saviour and my King ;

My confidence in Him I place,

To Him my soul would cling.

 

3

On Thee alone, my Saviour, God,

My steadfast hopes depend;

And to Thy holy will my soul

Submissively would bend.

 

4

Oh, grant Thy Holy Spirit’s grace,

And aid my feeble powers,

That gladly I may follow Thee

Through all my future hours.

 

242 Love divine, all loves excelling

Love divine, all loves excelling,

Joy of heaven, to earth come down ;

Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,

All Thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, Thou art all compassion,

Pure unbounded love Thou art ;

Visit us with Thy salvation,

Enter every longing heart !

 

2

Breathe, oh, breathe Thy loving Spirit

Into every troubled breast !

Let us all in Thee inherit,

Let us find Thy promised rest.

Come, Almighty to deliver !

Let us all Thy grace receive ;

Suddenly return, and never,

Never more Thy temples leave.

 

3

Finish, then, Thy new creation,

Pure and spotless may we be ;

Let us see our whole salvation

Perfectly secured by Thee :

Changed from glory into glory,

Till in heaven we take our place ;

Till we cast our crowns before Thee,

Lost in wonder, love, and praise !

 



 

243 Oh for a thousand tongues to sing

Oh for a thousand tongues to sing

My great Redeemer’s praise ;

The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of His grace.

 

2

My gracious Master and my God,

Assist me to proclaim—–

To spread thro’ all the earth abroad—-

The honours of Thy name.

 

3

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.

 

4

He breaks the power of cancelled sin,

He sets the prisoner free ;

His blood can make the foulest clean,

His blood avails for me.

 

244 I to the hills will lift mine eyes

I to the hills will lift mine eyes,

From whence doth come mine aid ;

My safety cometh from the Lord,

Who heaven and earth hath made.

 

2

Thy foot He’ll not let slide, nor will

He slumber that thee keeps :

Behold, He that keeps Israel,

He slumbers not nor sleeps.

 

3

The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade

On thy right hand doth stay :

The moon by night thee shall not smite,

Nor yet the sun by day.

 

4

The Lord shall keep thy soul; He shall

Preserve thee from all ill :

Henceforth thy going out and in

God keep for ever will.

 



 

245 Come, let us join our cheerful songs

Come, let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne;

Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one.

 

2

” Worthy the Lamb that died,” they cry,

” To be exalted thus ” ;

” Worthy the Lamb,” our lips reply,

” For He was slain for us.”

 

3

Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and power divine ;

And blessings more than we can give,

Be, Lord, for ever Thine.

 

4

Let all that dwell above the sky,

And air, and earth, and seas,

Conspire to lift Thy glories high,

And speak Thine endless praise.

 

5

The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name

Of Him that sits upon the throne,

And to adore the Lamb.

 

246 My God, I thank thee, who hast made

My God, I thank Thee, who hast made,

The earth so bright,

So full of splendour and of joy,

Beauty and light ;

So many glorious things are here,

Noble and right.

 

2

I thank Thee, too, that Thou hast made

Joy to abound ;

So many gentle thoughts and deeds

Circling us round ;

That in the darkest spot of earth

Some love is found.

 

3

I thank Thee more that all my joy

Is touched with pain;

That shadows fall on brightest hours,

That thorns remain ;

So that earth’s bliss may be my guide,

And not my chain.

 

4

For Thou who knowest, Lord, how soon

Our weak heart clings,

Hast given us joys, tender and true,

Yet all with wings,

So that we see, gleaming on high,

Diviner things.

 

5

I thank Thee, Lord, that Thou hast kept

The best in store ;

I have enough, yet not too much,

To long for more ;

A yearning for a deeper peace

Not known before.

 

6

I thank Thee, Lord, that here our souls,

Though amply blest,

Can never find, although they seek,

A perfect rest—-

Nor ever shall, until they lean

On Jesus’ breast.

 



 

247 Oh, serve the Lord with gladness

“Oh, serve the Lord with gladness,”

And come before His throne ;

He is the great Creator,

And He is God alone ;

The heavens declare His glory,

The earth His power displays ;

While millions without number

To Him glad anthems raise.

 

” Oh, serve the Lord with gladness,’

And come before His throne !

He is our great Redeemer,

And He is God alone.

 

2

” Oh, serve the Lord with gladness,”

And glad hosannas bring

To Him, the Sovereign Ruler,

The universal King ;

For ever through the ages

His truth unchanging stands;

Let all the nations fear Him,

And reverence His commands.

 

3

” Oh, serve the Lord with gladness,”

His love to all proclaim ;

Exalt Him in the highest,

And spread abroad His fame ;

All majesty, dominion,

All power and glory, be

To Him who reigns in triumph,

Through all eternity.

 

248 Songs of praise the angels sing

Songs of praise the angels sang,

Heaven with hallelujahs rang,

When Jehovah’s work begun,

When He spake, and it was done.

 

2

Songs of praise awoke the morn,

When the Prince of Peace was born ;

Songs of praise arose, when He

Captive led captivity.

 

3

Heaven and earth must pass away,

Songs of praise shall crown that day ;

God will make new heavens and earth,

Songs of praise shall hail their birth.

 

4

And will man alone be dumb,

Till that glorious Kingdom come ?

No : — the Church delights to raise

Psalms, and hymns, and songs of

praise.

 

5

Saints below, with heart and voice,

Still in songs of praise rejoice ;

Learning here, by faith and love,

Songs of praise to sing above.

 

6

Borne upon their latest breath,

Songs of praise shall conquer death ;

Then, amidst eternal joy,

Songs of praise their powers employ.

 



 

249 Come, sound His praise abroad

Come, sound His praise abroad,

And hymns of glory sing !

Jehovah is the sovereign God,

The universal King !

 

2

He formed the deeps unknown ;

He gave the seas their bound :

The watery worlds are all His own,

And all the solid ground.

 

3

Come, worship at His throne,

Come, bow before the Lord :

We are His work, and not our own,

He formed us by His word.

 

4

To-day attend His voice,

Nor dare provoke His rod ;

Come, like the people of His choice,

And own your gracious God.

250 My life flows on in endless song

My life flows on in endless song ;

Above earth’s lamentation

I hear the sweet though far-off hymn

That hails a new creation :

Through all the tumult and the strife

I hear the music ringing ;

It finds an echo in my soul-

How can I keep from singing ?

 

2

What though my joys and comforts

The Lord my Saviour liveth ; [die !

What though the darkness gather round !

Songs in the night He giveth :

No storm can shake my inmost calm

While to that refuge clinging ;

Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,

How can I keep from singing ?

 

3

I lift mine eyes ; the cloud grows thin ;

I see the blue above it ;

And day by day this pathway smooths

Since first I learned to love it :

The peace of Christ makes fresh my

A fountain ever springing: [heart,

All things are mine since I am His—-

How can I keep from singing ?
