SS & S 301 Glory to Thee, my God, this night

Glory to Thee, my God, this night,

For all the blessings of the light ;

Keep me, oh, keep me, King of kings,

Beneath Thine own almighty wings.

 

2

Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,

The ill that I this day have done ;

That with the world, myself, and

I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. [Thee,

 

3

Teach me to live, that I may dread

The grave as little as my bed ;

Teach me to die, that so I may

Rise glorious at the Judgment Day.

 

4

Oh, let my soul on Thee repose,

And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close ;

Sleep, that shall me more vigorous make

To serve my God when I awake.

SS & S 302 Sun of my soul, Thou Saviour dear

Sun of my soul, Thou Saviour dear,

It is not night if Thou be near;

Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise,

To hide Thee from Thy servant’s

eyes !

 

2

When the soft dews of kindly sleep

My wearied eyelids gently steep,

Be my last thought— How sweet to rest

For ever on my Saviour’s breast !

 

3

Abide with me from morn till eve,

For without Thee I cannot live ;

Abide with me when night is nigh,

For without Thee I dare not die.

 

4

If some poor wandering child of Thine

Have spurned to-day the voice Divine,

Now, Lord, the gracious work begin ;

Let him no more lie down in sin.

 

5

Come near and bless us when we wake,

Ere through the world our way we take;

Till, in the ocean of Thy love,

We lose ourselves in heaven above.



 

SS & S 303 Tis the blessed hour of prayer

‘Tis the blessed hour of prayer, when

our hearts lowly bend,

And we gather to Jesus, our Saviour and Friend ;

If we come to Him in faith, His protection to share,

What a balm for the weary !

Oh, how sweet to be there !

 

Blessed hour of prayer !

Blessed hour of prayer !

What a balm for the weary I

Oh, how sweet to be there !

 

2

‘Tis the blessed hour of prayer, when

the Saviour draws near,

With tender compassion His people to hear;

When He tells us we may cast at His feet every care,

What a balm for the weary !

Oh, how sweet to be there !

 

3

‘Tis the blessed hour of prayer, when

the tempted and tried,

To the Saviour who loves them their

sorrows confide :

With a sympathising heart He re-

moves every care ;

What a balm for the weary !

Oh, how sweet to be there !

 

4

At the blessed hour of prayer, if we

firmly believe

That the blessing we ask for we’ll surely receive,

In the fulness of delight we shall lose every care ;

What a balm for the weary !

Oh, how sweet to be there !

 

SS & S 304 Let us sing of the wonderful mercy of God

Let us sing of the wonderful mercy of God,

Of His constant protection and care;

Let our fervent devotions like incense arise,

When we gather before Him in prayer.

 

Let us praise and adore Him for all He hath done,

Let us tell of His goodness and care ;

Let our fervent devotions like incense arise,

When we gather before Him in prayer.

 

2

Let us sing of the wonderful gift of His grace,

That to us He has tenderly shown ;

In the blessed communion with Jesus His Son,

That has brought us so near to His throne.

 

3

Let us pray that His blessing may follow us still,

That His light on our pathway may shine ;

And at last that our spirits made perfect in Him

May inherit His kingdom divine.

 



 

SS & S 305  Pray on, pray on, believing ones

Pray on, pray on, believing ones,

God’s promised word is sure,

That they shall overcome by faith

Who to the end endure ;

Pray on, pray on ; oh, weary not,

The cross with patience bear ;

And though its burdens weigh us down,

The Lord will answer prayer.

 

2

His eye foresees our greatest good,

While we at best are weak ;

And thus in wisdom He withholds

The boon that oft we seek :

And yet His all-sufficient grace

He bids us freely share,

And in a way we little know

The Lord will answer prayer.

 

3

With anxious thoughts for those we love

How oft our hearts are filled !

But soon the clouds are rolled away,

The troubled waves are stilled :

Then murmur not, but trust in Him

Who knows our every care—–

And better far than we can ask,

The Lord will answer prayer.

 

SS & S 306  There shall be showers of blessing

” There shall be showers of blessing ” :

This is the promise of love ;

There shall be seasons refreshing,

Sent from the Saviour above.

 

Show – – ers of blessing,

Showers of blessing we need ;

Mercy-drops round us are falling,

But for the showers we plead.

 

2

” There shall be showers of blessing ”

Precious reviving again ;

Over the hills and the valleys,

Sound of abundance of rain.

 

3

” There shall be showers of blessing ” :

Send them upon us, O Lordl

Grant to us now a refreshing ;

Come, and now honour Thy Word.

 

4

” There shall be showers of blessing “:

Oh that to-day they might fall,

Now as to God we’re confessing,

Now as on Jesus we call !

 



 

SS & S 307 God is here, and that to bless us

God is here, and that to bless us

With the Spirit’s quickening power;

See, the cloud already bending

Waits to drop the grateful shower.

 

Let it come, . . O Lord, we pray Thee!

Let the shower. . of blessing fall;

We are wait – – ing, we are waiting;

Oh revive . . the hearts of all !

 

2

God is here ! we feel His presence

In this consecrated place ;

But we need the soul refreshing

Of His free, unbounded grace.

 

3

God is here ! oh, then believing,

Bring to Him our one desire,

That His love may now be kindled,

Till its flame each heart inspire.

 

4

Saviour, grant the prayer we offer

While in simple faith we bow ;

From the windows of Thy mercy

Pour us out a blessing now.

 

SS & S 308  Oh, welcome, hour of prayer

Oh, welcome, hour of prayer !

So full of peace and rest !

Here we may cast our every care

Upon the Saviour’s breast ;

We leave the world without,

To sit at Jesus’ feet ;

His love can banish every doubt,

And make our joys complete.

 

2

We see each other’s face,

And take each other’s hand ;

We sing our hymns of saving grace,

And of the Better Land ;

And while we feast with Him

Who is the Truth, the Light,

May we again our lamps retrim,

To shine forth in the night.

 

3

Thrice welcome, precious hour,

Of faith, and hope, and love,

When we may feel the Spirit’s power

Descending from above !

He dries the falling tears

That will, unbidden, start ;

He scatters all our anxious fears,

And fills each waiting heart.

 

4

O Thou that hearest prayer !

How sad this life would be —

How hard each heavy cross to bear,

Could we not come to Thee !

When faith seems lost in fear,

And hopes are dimmed by care,

In Thee we find refreshing cheer,

Thou blessed hour of prayer !

 



 

SS & S 309 Revive Thy work, O Lord

Revive Thy work, O Lord !

Now to Thy saints appear !

Oh, speak with power to every soul,

And let Thy people hear !

 

Revive Thy work, O Lord ! . .

While here to Thee we bow ; . .

Descend, O gracious Lord, descend !

Oh come, and bless us now 1

 

2

Revive Thy work, O Lord !

Exalt Thy precious name !

And may Thy love in every heart

Be kindled to a flame !

 

3

Revive Thy work, O Lord !

And bless to all Thy word !

And may its pure and sacred truth

In living faith be heard !

 

4

Revive Thy work, O Lord !

Give pentecostal showers !

Be Thine the glory, Thine alone !

The blessing, Lord, be ours !

 



 

SS & S 310 Faith is a living power from heaven

Faith is a living power from heaven

Which grasps the promise God has given ;

Securely fixed on Christ alone,

A trust that cannot be o’erthrown.

 

2

Faith finds in Christ whate’er we need

To save and strengthen, guide and feed;

Strong in His grace, it joys to share

His cross, in hope His crown to wear.

 

3

Faith to the conscience whispers peace,

And bids the mourner’s sighing cease ;

By faith the children’s right we claim,

And call upon our Father’s name.

 

4

Such faith in us, O God, implant,

And to our prayers Thy favour grant,

In Jesus Christ, Thy saving Son,

Who is our fount of health alone.

 

SS & S 311 What various hindrances we meet

In coming to the mercy-seat !

Yet who, that knows the worth of prayer,

But wishes to be often there !

 

2

Prayer makes the darkened clouds withdraw,

Prayer climbs the ladder Jacob saw,

Gives exercise to faith and love,

Brings every blessing from above.

 

3

Restraining prayer, we cease to fight ;

Prayer makes the Christian’s armour bright ;

And Satan trembles when he sees

The weakest saint upon his knees.

 

SS & S 312 Once more, O Lord, we pray

Once more, O Lord, we pray !

Put Thy strong armour on ;

Strike down the shield of Satan’s power ;

Let victory be won !

 

Once more, O Lord, once more

Thy blessing we implore ;

In Thy great name let victory sweep

Through Zion’s gates once more.

 

2

Lord Jesus, come to-day !

Let souls before Thee bow ;

Be this Thine hour of triumph, Lord ;

Oh, send salvation now !

 

3

Lord Jesus, come and reign !

Let error’s empire fall ;

We long to see Thy glory shine,

And crown Thee Lord of all !

 



 

SS & S 313  O Thou that hearest prayer

O Thou that hearest prayer !

Attend our humble cry ;

And let Thy servants share

Thy blessing from on high :

We plead the promise of Thy Word ;

Grant us Thy Holy Spirit, Lord !

 

2

If earthly parents hear

Their children when they cry ;

If they, with love sincere,

Their children’s wants supply:

Much more wilt Thou Thy love display,

And answer when Thy children pray.

 

3

Our heavenly Father Thou ;

We—– children of Thy grace ;

Oh, let Thy Spirit now

Descend and fill the place :

That all may feel the heavenly flame,

And all unite to praise Thy name.

 

SS & S 314 My God, is any hour so sweet

My God, is any hour so sweet,

From blush of morn to evening star,

As that which calls me to Thy feet—–

The hour of prayer ?

 

2

Then is my strength by Thee renewed ;

Then are my sins by Thee forgiven;

Then dost Thou cheer my solitude,

With hopes of heaven.

 

3

No words can tell what sweet relief

Here for my every want I find :

What strength for warfare, balm for

What peace of mind ! [grief,

 

4

Hushed is each doubt, gone every fear ;

My spirit seems in heaven to stay;

And e’en the penitential tear

Is wiped away.

 

5

Lord, till I reach yon blissful shore,

No privilege so dear shall be

As thus my inmost soul to pour

In prayer to Thee.

 



 

SS & S 315 For the tempted, Lord, we pray

For the tempted, Lord, we pray ;

For the souls that go astray ;

Weak and weary, tempest-tost,

Stars all hid, and compass lost ;

Sailors on the dangerous seas—–

God of love, we pray for these.

 

2

For the tempted, Lord, we pray ;

Thou didst make them, Thine are they ;

When alluring forms are nigh,

When a thousand voices cry,

Loud and clear above them all

Let them hear Thy tender call.

 

3

For the tempted, Lord, we pray ;

For the souls that go astray,

Beaten back by storm and sleet,

Scorned by all they chance to meet ;

On them let Thy mercy shine,

Still remember they are Thine.

 

4

For the tempted, Lord, we pray ;

Dust and ashes—– such are they !

Hear them while they make their moan;

Thou canst save, and Thou alone :

See, their feet are on the sands ;

Christ of Calvary, hold their hands.

 

SS & S 316 Sweet the moments, rich in blessing

Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,

Which before the cross we spend ;

Prayer -Meetings and Revival

Life, and health, and peace possessing,

From the sinner’s dying Friend.

 

2

Truly blessed is this station,

Low before His cross to lie.

While we see Divine compassion

Beaming in His gracious eye.

 

3

Love and grief our hearts dividing,

With our tears His feet we bathe,

Constant still in faith abiding,

Life deriving from His death.

 

4

For Thy sorrows we adore Thee,

For the pains that wrought our peace,

Gracious Saviour, we implore Thee

In our souls Thy love increase.

 



 

SS & S 317  Father, before Thy throne

Father, before Thy throne

My soul would bow ;

Ne’er have I asked in vain,

Oh, hear me now :

Hear Thou the prayer I make,

Answer for Jesus’ sake ;

Bid faith and love awake

Within my heart.

 

2

Father, this heart of mine,

Which now I bring,

Lies down before Thy feet,

A guilty thing ;

Kindle its altar fire,

Then hope and zeal inspire ;

Wake Thou its silent lyre

 

3

Thou art our dwelling-place

In every age ;

In Thy sweet love we trace

Our heritage——

Our refuge from the storm,

Our shelter safe and warm ;

Help us our vows perform,

Father Divine

 

SS & S 318 Sweet hour of prayer

Sweet hour of prayer ! sweet hour of prayer !

That calls me from a world of care,

And bids me at my Father’s throne

Make all my wants and wishes known.

In seasons of distress and grief,

My soul has often found relief,

And oft escaped the tempter’s snare,

By thy return, sweet hour of prayer !

 

2

Sweet hour of prayer ! sweet hour of prayer !

Thy wings shall my petition bear

To Him whose truth and faithfulness

Engage the waiting soul to bless ;

And since He bids me seek His face,

Believe His word, and trust His grace,

I’ll cast on Him my every care,

And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer !

 

3

Sweet hour of prayer ! sweet hour of prayer !

May I thy consolation share,

Till, from Mount Pisgah’s lofty height,

I mView my home and take my flight.

This robe of flesh I’ll drop, and rise

To seize the everlasting prize ;

And shout, while passing through the air

Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer ! ”

 



 

SS & S 319 What a Friend we have in Jesus

What a Friend we have in Jesus,

All our sins and griefs to bear !

What a privilege to carry

Everything to God in prayer !

Oh, what peace we often forfeit,

Oh, 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 ?

Precious 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,

 

SS & S 320  Tis the hallowed hour of prayer

‘Tis the hallowed hour of prayer,

And we trustingly bring

All our doubtings and our fears

To our Saviour and King ;

For we know that He delights

A glad welcome to give,

And the blessings that we ask for

We shall fully receive.

 

Precious hour of prayer !

Hallowed hour o

Sacred season of communion,

It is sweet to be there !

 

2

‘Tis the precious hour of prayer,

And we humbly entreat :

Father, breathe the Spirit now,

As we bow at Thy feet ;

Touch our lips with power of song ;

Fill our souls with Thy love.

And bestow the benediction

Of Thy peace from above.

 

3

‘Tis the sacred hour of prayer,

Calm as heaven above ;

Soul to soul is breathing here

The communion of love ;

Every heart is sweetly filled

With a peace most profound ;

Oh, the place is like to heaven

Where such true joys abound.

 



 

SS & S 321 How sweet the hour of praise and prayer

How sweet the hour of praise and prayer,

When our devotions blend,

And on the wings of faith divine,

Our songs of joy ascend !

‘Tis then we hear in tones more clear

The gracious promise given,

That, though we part from friends on earth,

We all shall meet in heaven.

 

We all shall meet in heaven at last,

We all shall meet in heaven ;

Through faith in Jesus’ precious blood,

We all shall meet in heaven.

 

2

How sweet the tie of hallowed love

That binds our hearts in one ;

When gathered in the blessed name

Of Christ, the Father’s Son !

And though the parting soon may

Yet in His Word is given [come,

The blessed hope that by and by

We ail shall meet in heaven.

 

3

Yes, soon our worn and weary feet

Will reach the golden strand,

Where those we love our coming wait

In yonder summer land ;

A few more days, a few more years,

By storm and tempest driven,

With songs and everlasting joy,

We all shall meet in heaven.

 

SS & S 322 O Lord, Thy work revive

O Lord, Thy work revive,

In Zion’s gloomy hour;

And make her dying graces live

By Thy restoring power.

 

2

Awake Thy chosen few

To fervent, earnest prayer ;

Again may they their vows renew,

Thy blessed presence share

 

3

Thy Spirit then will speak

Through lips of feeble clay ;

And hearts of adamant will break,

And rebels will obey.

 

4

Lord, lend Thy gracious ear ;

Oh, listen to our cry ;

Oh come, and bring salvation here :

Our hopes on Thee rely.

 



 

SS & S 323 Lord God, the Holy Ghost

Lord God, the Holy Ghost,

In this accepted hour,

As on the day of Pentecost,

Descend in all Thy power.

 

2

We meet with one accord

In our appointed place,

And wait the promise of our Lord,

The Spirit of all grace.

 

3

The young, the old, inspire

With wisdom from above,

And give us hearts and tongues of fire

To pray, and praise, and love.

 

4

Spirit of Light, explore

And chase our gloom away,

With lustre shining more and more

Unto the perfect day !

 

SS & S 324 Lord, we gather in Thy name

Lord, we gather in Thy name ;

May we now Thy promise claim ;

Grant Thy presence from above,

And fill our souls with love.

 

Lord, we come on bended knee,

Looking up by faith to Thee :

Thou, on whom we cast our care,

Bless this hour of prayer !

 

2

Welcome hour that ever brings

Peace and gladness on its wings ;

Hallowed rest and calm repose

Thy tranquil joy bestows.

 

3

Now to us Thy grace impart,

Nearer draw each waiting heart ;

Consecrate us all Thine own,

While here before Thy throne.

 



 

SS & S 325 Here from the world we turn

Here from the world we turn,

Jesus to seek ;

Here may His loving voice

Tenderly speak !

Jesus, our dearest Friend,

While at Thy feet we bend,

Oh, let Thy smile descend !

‘Tis Thee we seek.

 

2

Come, Holy Comforter,

Presence divine.

Now in our longing hearts

Graciously shine;

Oh for Thy mighty power !

Oh for a blessed shower,

Filling this hallowed hour

With joy divine !

 

3

Saviour, Thy work revive,

Here may we see

Those who are dead in sin

Quickened by Thee ;

Come to our hearts’ delight,

Make every burden light,

Cheer Thou our waiting sight ;

We long for Thee.

 

SS & S 326 Come, Thou Desire of all Thy saints

Come, Thou Desire of all Thy saints !

Our humble strains attend ;

While with our praises and complaints,

Low at Thy feet we bend,

 

2

How should our songs, like those above,

With warm devotion rise !

How should our souls, on wings of love,

Mount upward to the skies !

 

3

Come, Lord ! Thy love alone can raise

In us the heavenly flame ;

Then shall our lips resound Thy praise,

Our hearts adore Thy name.

 

4

Dear Saviour, let Thy glory shine,

And fill Thy dwellings here ;

Till life, and love, and joy divine

A heaven on earth appear.

 



 

SS & S 327 Oh for a faith that will not shrink

Oh for a faith that will not shrink,

Though pressed by every foe ;

That will not tremble on the brink

Of any earthly woe :

 

2

That will not murmur or complain

Beneath the chastening rod ;

But in the hour of grief or pain

Will lean upon its God :

 

3

A faith that shines more bright and clear

When tempests rage without ;

That when in danger knows no fear,

In darkness feels no doubt—-

 

4

A faith that keeps the narrow way

Till life’s last spark is fled,

And with a pure and heavenly ray

Lights up the dying bed.

 

5

Lord, give us such a faith as this,

And then, whate’er may come,

We’ll taste, e’en here, the hallowed bliss

Of our eternal home !

 

SS & S 328 Hear us, O Saviour, while we pray

Hear us, O Saviour, while we pray,

Humbly our need confessing ;

Grant us the promised showers today—–

Send them upon us, O Lord !

 

Send showers of blessing ; send showers refreshing ;

Send us showers of blessing; send them, Lord, we pray !

 

2

Knowing Thy love, on Thee we call,

Boldly Thy throne addressing ;

Pleading that showers of grace may fall—-

Send them upon us, O Lord !

 

3

Trusting Thy Word that cannot fail,

Master, we claim Thy promise ;

Oh that our faith may now prevail——-

Send us the showers, O Lord !

 



 

SS & S 329 Jesus, we Thy promise claim

Jesus, we Thy promise claim,

We are gathered in Thy name ;

In the midst do Thou appear ;

Manifest Thy presence here.

 

2

Sanctify us, Lord, and bless ;

Breathe Thy Spirit, give Thy peace;

Come and dwell within each heart;

Light, and life, and joy impart.

 

3

Make us all in Thee complete,

Make us all for glory meet—–

Meet t’ appear before Thy sight ;

Partners with the saints in light !

 

SS & S 330  Come, my soul, thy suit prepare

Come, my soul, thy suit prepare ;

Jesus loves to answer prayer :

He Himself has bid thee pray,

Therefore will not say thee nay.

 

2

Thou art coming to a King :

Large petitions with thee bring ;

For His grace and power are such,

None can ever ask too much.

 

3

With my burden I begin——

Lord, remove this load of sin ;

Let thy blood, for sinners spilt,

Set my conscience free from guilt.

 

4

Lord, I come to Thee for rest——

Take possession of my breast,

There Thy blood-bought right maintain,

And without a rival reign.

 

5

While I am a pilgrim here

Let Thy love my spirit cheer ;

As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend,

Lead me to my journey’s end.

 

6

Show me what I have to do,

Every hour my strength renew ;

Let me live a life of faith,

Let me die Thy people’s death.

 



 

SS & S 331  Lord, we come before Thee now

Lord, we come before Thee now,

At Thy feet we humbly bow ;

Oh, do not our suit disdain !

Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain ?

 

2              Lord, on Thee our souls depend ;

In compassion now descend :

Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace,

Tune our lips to sing Thy praise.

 

3

In Thine own appointed way

Now we seek Thee; here we stay:

Lord, we know not how to go,

Till a blessing Thou bestow.

 

4

Send some message from Thy Word

That may joy and peace afford ;

Let Thy Spirit now impart

Full salvation to each heart.

 

5

Comfort those who weep and mourn ;

Let the time of joy return;

Those that are cast down lift up ;

Make them strong in faith and hope.

 

6

Grant that all may seek and find

Thee a God supremely kind :

Heal the sick ; the captive free ;

Let us all rejoice in Thee.

 

SS & S 332  Pray, always pray; the Holy Spirit pleads

Pray, always pray; the Holy Spirit pleads

Within thee all thy daily, hourly needs.

 

2

Pray, always pray; beneath sin’s heaviest load

Prayer sees the blood from Jesus’ side that flowed

 

3

Pray, always pray, though weary, faint, and lone,

Prayer nestles by the Father’s sheltering throne.

 

4

Pray, always pray; amid the world’s turmoil

Prayer keeps the heart at rest, and nerves for toil.

 

5

Pray, always pray; if joys thy pathway throng,

Prayer strikes the harp, and sings the angels’ song.

 

6

Pray, always pray ; if loved ones pass the veil,

Prayer drinks with them of springs that cannot fail.

 

7

All earthly things with earth shall fade away ;

Prayer grasps eternity: pray, always pray.

 



 

SS & S 333  Lord, teach us how to pray aright

Lord, teach us how to pray aright,

With reverence and with fear;

Though dust and ashes in Thy sight,

We may, we must draw near.

 

2

Burdened with guilt, convinced of sin,

In weakness, want, and woe,

Fightings without, and fears within,

Lord, whither shall we go ?

 

3

God of all grace, we come to Thee

With broken, contrite hearts ;

Give, what Thine eye delights to see,

Truth in the inward parts.

 

4

Give deep humility ; the sense

Of godly sorrow give ;

A strong, desiring confidence

To hear Thy voice and live ;

 

5

Faith in the holy sacrifice

That can for sin atone ;

To cast our hopes, to rix our eyes,

On Christ, on Christ alone ;

 

6

Patience to watch, and wait, and weep,

Though mercy long delay ;

Courage, our fainting souls to keep,

And trust Thee, though Thou slay :

 

7

Give these, and then Thy will be done ;

Thus strengthened with all might,

We by Thy Spirit, and Thy Son,

Shall pray, and pray aright.

 

SS & S 334  So near to the Kingdom ! yet what dost thou lack

So near to the Kingdom ! yet what dost thou lack ?

So near to the Kingdom ! what keepeth thee back ?

Renounce every idol, though dear it may be,

And come to the Saviour now pleading with thee !

 

Plead – – ing with thee! . . .

The Saviour is pleading, is pleading with thee!

 

2

So near, that thou hearest the songs that resound

From those who, believing, a pardon have found !

So near, yet unwilling to give up thy sin,

When Jesus is waiting to welcome thee in.

 

3

To die with no hope ! hast thou counted the cost ?—–

To die out of Christ, and thy soul to be lost ?

So near to the Kingdom ! oh come, we implore !

While Jesus is pleading, come enter the door !

 



 

SS & S 335  Oh, do not let the Word depart

Oh, do not let the Word depart,

Nor close thine eyes against the light ;

Poor sinner, harden not thy heart :

Thou wouldst be saved—- Why not tonight ?

 

Why not to-night ? Why not to-night ?

Thou wouldst be saved—- Why not to-night ?

 

2

To-morrow’s sun may never rise,

To bless thy long-deluded sight ;

This is the time ! oh then, be wise !

Thou wouldst be saved—- why not tonight ?

 

3

The world has nothing left to give—-

It has no new, no pure delight :

Oh, try the life which Christians live !

Thou wouldst be saved—– Why not tonight ?

 

4

Our blessed Lord refuses none

Who would to Him their souls unite ;

Then be the work of grace begun !

Thou wouldst be saved—- Why not tonight?

 

SS & S 336 While Jesus whispers to you

While Jesus whispers to you,

Come, sinner, come !

While we are praying for you,

Come, sinner, come !

Now is the time to own Him,

Come, sinner, come !

Now is the time to know Him,

Come, sinner, come !

 

2

Are you too heavy laden ?

Come, sinner, come !

Jesus will bear your burden,

Come, sinner, come !

Jesus will not deceive you,

Come, sinner, come !

Jesus will now receive you,

Come, sinner, come !

 

3

Oh, hear His tender pleading !

Come, sinner, come !

Come, and receive the blessing !

Come, sinner, come !

While Jesus whispers to you,

Come, sinner, come !

While we are praying for you,

Come, sinner, come !

 



 

SS & S 337  Weeping will not save me

Weeping will not save me !

Though my face were bathed in tears,

That could not allay my fears,

Could not wash the sins of years :

Weeping will not save me !

 

Jesus wept and died for me ;

Jesus suffered on the tree ;

Jesus waits to make me free :

He alone can save me !

 

2

Working will not save me !

Purest deeds that I can do,

Holiest thoughts and feelings too,

Cannot form my soul anew :

Working will not save me !

 

3

Waiting will not save me !

Helpless, guilty, lost, I lie ;

In my ear is Mercy’s cry ;

If I wait I can but die :

Waiting will not save me !

 

4

Faith in Christ will save me !

Let me trust Thy weeping Son,

Trust the work that He has done ;

To His arms, Lord, help me run :

Faith in Christ will save me !

 

SS & S 338  Someone will enter the pearly gate

Someone will enter the pearly gate

By and by, by and by ;

Taste of the glories that there await :

Shall you ? shall I ?,

 

Someone will travel the streets of gold

Beautiful visions will there behold,

Feast on the pleasures so long foretold:

Shall you ? shall I?

 

2

Someone at last will his cross lay

By and by, by and by; [down

Faithful, approved, shall receive a crown :

Shall you ? shall I ?

Someone the glorious King will see,

Ever from sorrow of earth be free,

Happy with Him through eternity :

Shall you ? shall I ?

 

3

Someone will knock when the door is shut—–

By and by, by and by ;

Hear a voice saying, “ I know you not”:

Shall you? shall I ?

Someone will call and shall not be heard,

Vainly will strive when the door is barred,

Someone will fail of the saint’s reward :

Shall you ? shall I ?

 

4

Someone will sing the triumphant song

By and by, by and by ;

Join in the praise with the blood-

bought throng:

Shall you ? shall I ?

Someone will greet on the golden

shore

Loved ones of earth who have gone before,

Safe in the glory for evermore :

Shall you ? shall I ?

 



 

SS & S 339  God calling yet ! shall I not hear

God calling yet ! shall I not hear ?

Earth’s pleasures shall I still hold dear?

Shall life’s swift passing years all fly,

And still my soul in slumber lie ?

 

Call- – ing yet, oh, hear Him !

Call – – ing yet, oh, hear Him !

Got! is calling yet ; oh, hear Him calling, calling !

Call – – ing yet, oh, hear Him !

Call – – ing yet, oh, hear Him !

God is calling yet ; oh, hear Him calling yet !

 

2

God calling yet ! shall I not rise ?

Can I His loving voice despise,

And basely His kind care repay ?

He calls me still ; can I delay ?

 

3

God calling yet ! and shall He knock,

And I my heart the closer lock ?

He still is waiting to receive ;

And shall I dare His Spirit grieve ?

 

4

God calling yet ! and shall I give

No heed, but still in bondage live ?

I wait ; but He does not forsake :

He calls me still : my heart, awake !

 

5

God calling yet ! I cannot stay ;

My heart I yield without delay :

Vain world, farewell I from thee I part ;

The voice of God has reached my heart.

 

SS & S 340  To-day the Saviour calls

To-day the Saviour calls :

Ye wanderers, come ;

Oh, ye benighted souls,

Why longer roam ?

 

2

To-day the Saviour calls :

Oh, listen now !

Within these sacred walls

To Jesus bow.

 

3

To-day the Saviour calls :

For refuge fly ;

The storm of justice falls,

And death is nigh.

 

4

The Spirit calls to-day :

Yield to His power ;

Oh, grieve Him not away !

“Tis mercy’s hour.

 

SS & S 341  While we pray, and while we plead

While we pray, and while we plead,

While you see your soul’s deep need.

While ycur Father calls you home,

Will you not, my brother, come ?

 

Why not now ? . . why not now ?

Why not come to Jesus now ?

Why not now ? . . why not now ? . .

Why not come to Jesus now ?

 

2

You have wandered far away,

Do not risk another day ;

Do not turn from God your face,

But to-day accept His grace.

 

3

In the world you’ve failed to find

Aught of peace for troubled mind ;

Come to Christ, on Him believe,

Peace and joy you shall receive.

 

4

Come to Christ, confession make ;

Come to Christ and pardon take ;

Trust in Him from day to day,

He will keep you all the way.

 

SS & S 342  Out of Christ, and yet so near

Out of Christ, and yet so near,

That Thy heart His voice can hear,

Pleading still—– O ” Come to Me !

I have given My life for thee.”

 

Out of Christ, a slave to sin—-

Rise, and let the Saviour in !

If thou bid Him longer wait,

Soon for thee ’twill be too late.

 

2

Out of Christ, a wanderer yet—–

What if now thy sun should set ?

And in darkness leave thy soul

To the tempter’s dread control.

 

3

Yield to Him thy broken heart,

He will take thee as thou art ;

Now His offered grace receive,

And no more the Spirit grieve.

 



 

SS & S 343  There are angels hovering round

There are angels hovering round,

There are angels hovering round,

There are angels, angels hovering round.

 

2 To carry the tidings home, etc.

 

3 To the new Jerusalem.

 

4 Poor sinners are coming home.

 

5 And Jesus bids them come.

 

6 And children too may come.

 

7 All heaven is full of joy.

 

8 For Jesus loves to save.

 

9 Come, children, trust Him now.

 

SS & S 344  Hark ! there comes a whisper

Hark ! there comes a whisper,

Stealing on thine ear ;

‘Tis the Saviour calling,

Soft, soft and clear.

 

” Give thy heart to Me, . .

Once I died for thee ” ; . .

Hark ! hark ! thy Saviour calls:

Come, sinner, come 1

 

2

With that voice so gentle,

Dost thou hear Him say ?——-

” Tell Me all thy sorrows ;

Come, come away ! ”

 

3

Wouldst thou find a Refuge

For thy soul oppressed ?

Jesus kindly answers,

” I am thy rest.”

 

4

At the cross of Jesus

Let thy burden fall ;

While He gently whispers,

” I’ll bear it all.”

 



 

SS & S 345  Sinner, how thy heart is troubled

Sinner, how thy heart is troubled !

God is coming very near ;

Do not hide thy deep emotion,

Do not check that failing tear.

 

Oh, be saved, His grace is free !

Oh, be saved, He died for thee !

Oh, be saved, He died for thee !

 

2

Jesus now is bending o’er thee,

Jesus lowly, meek, and mild :

To the Friend who died to save thee,

Wilt thou not be reconciled ?

 

3

Art thou waiting till the morrow ?

Thou may’st never see its light ;

Come at once ! accept His mercy :

He is waiting—– come to-night !

 

4

With a lowly, contrite spirit,

Kneeling at the Saviour’s feet,

Thou canst feel, this very moment,

Pardon— precious, pure, and sweet !

 

5

Let the angels bear the tidings

Upward to the courts of heaven !

Let them sing, with holy rapture,

O’er another soul forgiven !

 



 

SS & S 346  Not far, not far from the Kingdom

Not far, not far from the Kingdom,

Yet in the shadow of sin ;

How many are coming and going !—–

How few there are entering in I

 

How few there are entering in I

How few there are entering in !

How many are coming and going!——

How few there are entering in!

 

2

Not far, not far from the Kingdom,

Where voices whisper and wait;

Too timid to enter in boldly,

So linger still outside the gate.

 

3

Away in the dark and the danger

Far out in the night and the cold ;

There Jesus is waiting to lead you

So tenderly into His fold.

 

4

Not far, not far from the Kingdom,

‘Tis only a little space;

But oh, you may still be for ever

Shut out from yon heavenly place !

 



 

SS & S 347  Oh come, sinner, come ! ’tis mercy’s  call

Oh come, sinner, come ! ’tis mercy’s  call;

Here at Jesus’ feet !

Oh come, and, repenting, lay thy all

Down at Jesus’ feet !

 

Oh, lay it down ! lav it down !

Lay thy weary burden down ;

Oh, lay it down, lay it down,

Down at Jesus’ feet !

 

 

2

Oh come, and, believing, seek thy rest

Here at Jesus’ feet !

Thy heart, with its heavy weight oppressed

Lay at Jesus’ feet !

 

3

Oh come, where thy faith can make

Here at Jesus’ feet ! [thee whole,

Oh come, and thy weary, troubled soul

Lay at Jesus’ feet !

 

4

Oh come ! bless the Lord, there’s room for thee,

Here at Jesus’ feet !

Thy burden of guilt, whate’er it be,

Lay at Jesus’ feet !

 

SS & S 348  Why waitest thou, O burdened soul

Why waitest thou, O burdened soul,

When Jesus now will make thee whole ?

Give up thy all to His control——

The Life, the Truth, the Way.

 

He is calling thee, gently calling thee ;

He is calling thee, gently calling thee :

Oh, come and give Him now thy heart—–

He is calling thee to-day.

 

2

Why waitest thou ? why not believe ?

His offered grace with joy receive ;

How can you still the Spirit grieve ?

Thou hast no time to stay.

 

3

Why waitest thou ? the days are few,

And there is work for thee to do ;

Forsake the wrong, the right pursue;

Arise ! no more delay.

 



 

SS & S 349  Come, oh come, with thy broken heart

Come, oh come, with thy broken heart,

Weary and worn with care ;

Come and kneel at the open door,

Jesus is waiting there :

Waiting to heal thy wounded soul,

Waiting to give thee rest :

Why wilt thou walk where shadows fall ?

Come to His loving breast !

 

2

Firmly cling to the blessed cross,

There shall thy refuge be ;

Wash thee now in the crimson fount,

Flowing so pure for thee :

List to the gentle, warning voice !

List to the earnest call !

Leave at the cross thy burden now :

Jesus will bear it all.

 

3

Come and taste of the precious feast,

Feast of eternal love ;

Think of joys that for ever bloom,

Bright in the life above :

Come with a trusting heart to God,

Come and be saved by grace;

Come, for He longs to clasp thee now

Close in His dear embrace.

SS & S 350  I have a Saviour, He’s pleading in glory

I have a Saviour, He’s pleading in glory,

A dear loving Saviour, though earth-friends be few ;

And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me :

And oh, that my Saviour were your Saviour too !

 

For you I am praying, for you I am praying,

For you I am praying, I’m praying for you.

 

2

I have a Father : to me He has given

A hope for eternity, blessed and true ;

And soon He will call me to meet

Him in heaven, [with me too !

But oh, may He lead you to go

 

3

I have a robe: ’tis resplendent in whiteness,

Awaiting in glory my wondering mView ;

Oh, when I receive it all shining in brightness,

Dear friend, could I see you receiving one too !

 

4

I have a peace : it is calm as a river—–

A peace that the friends of this world never knew ;

My Saviour alone is its Author and Giver,

And oh, could I know it was given to you !

 

5

When Jesus has found you, tell others the story,

That my loving Saviour is your Saviour too ;

Then pray that your Saviour may bring them to glory,

And prayer will be answered, ’twas answered for you !
