Ancient and Modern (Anglican Hymns) A&M 101- 150


Hymn A&M 101 See the destined day arise!

1. See the destined day arise!
See a willing sacrifice!
Jesus, to redeem our loss,
hangs upon the shameful cross.

2. Jesus, who but thou had borne,
lifted on that tree of scorn,
every pang and bitter throe,
finishing thy life of woe?

3. Who but thou had dared to drain,
steeped in gall, the cup of pain,
and with tender body bear
thorns, and nails, and piercing spear?

4. Thence the cleansing water flowed,
mingled from thy side with blood;
sign to all attesting eyes
of the finished sacrifice..

5. Holy Jesus, grant us peace
in that sacrifice to place
all our trust for life renewed,
pardoned sin and promised good.

Hymn A&M 102 My song is love unknown

1. My song is love unknown,
my Savior’s love to me,
love to the loveless shown
that they might lovely be.
O who am I
that for my sake
my Lord should take
frail flesh and die?

2. He came from His blest throne
salvation to bestow,
but men made strange, and none
the longed-for Christ would know.
But O my friend,
my friend indeed,
who at my need,
his life did spend.

3. Sometimes they strew his way,
and his strong praises sing,
resounding all the day
hosannas to their King.
Then “Crucify!”
is all their breath,
and for his death
they thirst and cry.

4. Why, what hath my Lord done?
What makes this rage and spite?
He made the lame to run,
he gave the blind their sight.
Sweet injuries!
Yet they at these
themselves displease,
and ‘gainst him rise.

5. They rise, and needs will have
my dear Lord made away;
a murderer they save,
the Prince of Life they slay.
Yet steadfast he
to suffering goes,
that he his foes
from thence might free.

6. In life, no house, no home
my lord on earth might have;
in death, no friendly tomb
but what a stranger gave,
what may I say?
heaven was his home;
but mine the tomb
wherein he lay.

7. Here might I stay and sing,
no story so divine:
never was love, dear King,
never was grief like thine.
This is my friend,
in whose sweet praise
I all my days
could gladly spend.


Hymn A&M 103 My Lord, my Master, at thy feet, adoring

1. My Lord, my Master, at thy feet adoring,
I see thee bowed beneath thy load of woe;
for me, a sinner is thy life-blood pouring;
for thee, my Saviour, scarce my tears will flow.

2. Thine own disciple to the Jews has sold thee,
with friendship’s kiss and loyal word he came;
how oft of faithful love my lips have told thee,
while thou hast seen my falsehood and my shame.

3. With taunts and scoffs they mock what seems thy weakness,
with blows and outrage adding pain to pain;
thou art unmoved and steadfast in thy meekness;
when I am wronged how quickly I complain!

4. My Lord, my Savior, when I see thee wearing
upon thy bleeding brow the crown of thorn,
shall I for pleasure live, or shrink from bearing
whate’er my lot may be of pain or scorn?

5. O Victim of thy love, O pangs most healing,
O saving death, O wounds that I adore,
O shame most glorious! Christ, before thee kneeling,
I pray thee keep me thine forevermore.

Ancient and Modern (Anglican Hymns) A&M 101- 150


Hymn A&M 104 All ye who seek for sure relief

1. All ye who seek for sure relief
in trouble and distress,
whatever sorrow vex the mind,
or guilt the soul oppress.

2. Jesus, who gave himself for you
upon the Cross to die,
opens to you his sacred heart;
O to that Heart draw nigh.

3. Ye hear how kindly He invites;
ye hear his words so blest;
“All ye that labor come to me,
and I will give you rest.”

4. O Jesus, joy of saints on high,
thou hope of sinners here,
attracted by those loving words
to thee, we lift our prayer.

5. Wash thou our wounds in that dear blood
which from thy heart doth flow;
a new and contrite heart on all
who cry to thee bestow.

Hymn A&M 105 In the Lord’s atoning grief

1. In the Lord’s atoning grief
be our rest and sweet relief,
store we deep in heart’s recess
all the shame and bitterness.

2. Thorns, and cross, and nails, and lance,
wounds, our rich inheritance,
vinegar, and gall, and reed,
and the cry his soul that freed.

3. May these all our spirits fill,
and with love’s devotion thrill;
in our soul’s plant virtue’s root,
and mature its glorious fruit.

4. Crucified! we thee adore,
thee with all our hearts implore;
us with all thy saints unite
in the realms of heavenly light.

5. Christ, by coward hands, betrayed,
Christ, for us a captive made,
Christ, upon the bitter tree
slain for man, be praise to thee.


Hymn A&M 106 My God, I love thee; not because

1. My God, I love thee; not because
I hope for heaven thereby,
nor yet because who love thee not
are lost eternally.

2. Thou, O Lord Jesus, thou didst me
upon the cross embrace;
for me, didst bear the nails and spear,
and manifold disgrace,

3. And griefs and torments numberless,
and sweat of agony;
yea, death itself; and all for me
who was thine enemy.

4. Then why, O blessed Jesus Christ,
should I not love thee well,
not for the sake of winning heaven,
nor of escaping hell;

5. Not from the hope of gaining aught,
not seeking a reward;
but as thyself hast loved me,
O ever-loving Lord!

6. So would I love thee, dearest Lord,
and in thy praise will sing,
solely because thou art my God
and my most loving King.

Hymn A&M 107 Glory be to Jesus

1. Glory be to Jesus,
who in bitter pains
poured for me the lifeblood
from his sacred veins!

2. Grace and life eternal
in that blood I find,
blest be his compassion
infinitely kind!

3. Blest through endless ages
be the precious stream
which from endless torments
did the world redeem!

4. Abel’s blood for vengeance
pleaded to the skies;
but the blood of Jesus
for our pardon cries.

5. Oft as it is sprinkled
on our guilty hearts,
Satan in confusion
terror-struck departs;

6. oft as earth exulting
wafts its praise on high,
angel hosts, rejoicing,
make their glad reply.

7. Lift ye then your voices;
swell the mighty flood;
louder still and louder
praise the precious blood.

Hymn  A&M 108 When I survey the wondrous cross

1. When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of Glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.

2. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
save in the cross of Christ, my God:
all the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to his blood.

3. See, from his head, his hands, his feet,
sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
or thorns compose so rich a crown?

4. Were the whole realm of nature mine,
that were an offering far too small;
love so amazing, so divine,
demands my soul, my life, my all.

Hymn A&M 109 Lord Jesus, when we stand afar

1. Lord Jesus, when we stand afar
and gaze upon thy holy cross,
in love of thee and scorn of self,
O may we count the world as loss!

2. When we behold thy bleeding wounds,
and the rough way that thou hast trod,
make us to hate the load of sin
that lay so heavy on our God.

3. O holy Lord, uplifted high,
with outstretched arms in mortal woe,
embracing in thy wondrous love
the sinful world that lies below.

4. Give us an ever-living faith
to gaze beyond the things we see;
and in the mystery of thy death
draw us and all men unto thee.

Hymn A&M 110 Go to dark Gethsemane

1. Go to dark Gethsemane,
ye that feel the tempter’s power;
your Redeemer’s conflict see,
watch with him one bitter hour;
turn not from his griefs away,
learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

2. Follow to the judgment hall;
View the Lord of life arraigned;
O the wormwood and gall!
O the pangs his souls sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of him to bear the cross.

3. Calvary’s mournful mountain climb;
there, adoring at his feet,
mark the miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete;
“It is finished!” hear him cry;
learn of Jesus Christ to die.

Hymn A&M 111 O sacred head, surrounded

1. O sacred head, surrounded
by crown of piercing thorn!
O bleeding Head, so wounded,
so shamed and put to scorn!
death’s pallid hue come o’er thee,
the glow of life decay;
yet angel hosts adore thee
and tremble as they gaze

2. Thy comeliness and vigor
is withered up and gone,,
and in thy wasted figure,
i see death drawing on;
O agony and dying!
O love to sinners free!
Jesus, all grace supplying,
O turn thy face on me.

3. In this thy bitter passion,
Good Shepherd, think of me
with thy most sweet compassion,
unworthy though I be:
beneath thy cross abiding
forever would I rest,
in thy dear love confiding,
and with thy presence blest.


Hymn A&M 112 Father, Most High, be with us

1. Father, Most High, be with us,
Unseen, Thy goodness showing,
And Christ the Word Incarnate,
And Spirit grace bestowing.
O Trinity, O Oneness
Of light and power exceeding;
O God of God Eternal
O God, from Both proceeding!

2. While daylight hours are passing,
We live and work before Thee;
Now, ere we rest in slumber,
We gather to adore Thee.
Our Christian name and calling
Of our new birth remind us;
The Spirit’s gifts and sealing
To firm, obedience bind us.

3. Begone, ye powers of evil
With snares and wiles unholy!
Disturb not with your temptings
The spirits of the lowly.
Depart! for Christ is present,
Beside us, yea, within us;
Away! His sign, ye know it,
The victory shall win us.

4. Awhile the body resteth;
The spirit, wakeful ever,
Abideth in communion
With Christ, who sleepeth never,
To God, th’Eternal Father,
To Christ, our sure salvation,
To God, the Holy Spirit,
Be endless adoration.

while soldiers scoff and foes deride?
Ah! look how patiently he hangs;

his throat with parching thirst is dried,
his failing eyes are dimmed with blood:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified..

and all three hours his silence cried
for mercy on the souls of men;
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

In this dread act your strength is tried;
and victory remains with love;
for he, our Lord, is crucified.

Hymn A&M 114 Forgive them, O my Father

1. “Forgive them, O my Father,
they know not what they do”:
the Saviour spake in anguish,
as the sharp nails went through.

2. No word of anger spake he
to them that shed his blood,
but prayer and tenderest pity
large as the love of God.

3. For me was that compassion,
for me that tender care;
I need his wide forgiveness
as much as any there.

4. It was my pride and hardness
that hung him on the tree;
those cruel nails, O Saviour,
were driven in by me.

5. And often I have slighted
thy gentle voice that chid:
forgive me too, Lord Jesus,
I knew not what I did.

6. O depth of sweet compassion!
O Love divine and true!
Save thou the souls that slight thee,
and know not what they do.


Hymn A & M 115 O word of pity, for our pardon pleading

1. O word of pity, for our pardon pleading,
breathed in the hour of loneliness and pain;
O voice, which through the ages interceding
calls us to fellowship with God again!

2. O word of comfort, through the silence stealing,
as the dread act of sacrifice began;
O infinite compassion, still revealing
the infinite forgiveness won for man!

3. O word of hope to raise us nearer heaven,
when courage fails us and when faith is dim!
The souls for whom Christ prays to Christ are given,
to find their pardon and their joy in him.

4. O Intercessor, who art ever living
to plead for dying souls that they may live,
teach us to know our sin which needs forgiving,
teach us to know the love which can forgive.

Hymn A&M 116 Lord, when thy kingdom comes, remember me

1. “Lord, when thy kingdom comes, remember me;”
thus spake the dying lips to dying ears:
O faith, which in that darkest hour could see
the promised glory of the far-off years!

2. No kingly sign declares that glory now,
no ray of hope lights up that awful hour;
a thorny crown surrounds the bleeding brow,
the hands are stretched in weakness, not in power.

3. Hark! through the gloom the dying Savior saith,
“Thou too shalt rest in paradise today;”
O words of love to answer words of faith!
O words of hope for those who live to pray!

4. Lord, when with dying lips my prayer is said,
grant that in faith thy kingdom I may see;
and, thinking on thy cross and bleeding head,
may breathe my parting words, “Remember me.”

5. Remember me, but not my shame or sin;
thy cleansing blood hath washed them all away;
thy precious death for me did pardon win;
thy blood redeemed me in that awful day.

6. Remember me; and, ere I pass away,
speak thou the assuring word that sets us free,
and make thy promise to my heart, “Today
thou too shalt rest in paradise with me.”

Hymn A&M 117 O thou, from whom all goodness flows

1. O thou, from whom all goodness flows,
I lift my heart to thee;
in all my sorrows, conflicts, woes,
good Lord, remember me.

2. When on my aching burdened heart
my sins lie heavily,
thy pardon grant, thy peace impart:
good Lord, remember me.

3. When trials sore obstruct my way,
and ills I cannot flee:
then let my strength be as my day:
good Lord, remember me.

4. If worn with pain, disease and grief
this feeble body see;
grant patience, rest and kind relief:
good Lord, remember me.

5. And O, when in the hour of death
i bow to thy decree,
Jesu, receive my parting breath:
good lord, remember me.

Hymn A&M 118 At the cross her station keeping

1. At the cross her station keeping,
stood the mournful mother weeping,
where he hung, the dying Lord;
for her soul, of joy bereaved,
bowed with anguish, deeply grieved,
felt the sharp and piercing sword.

2. O how sad and sore distressed,
now was she, that mother blessed
of sole begotten One!
deep the woe of her affliction,
when she saw the crucifixion
of her ever-glorious son.

3. Who, on Christ’s dear mother gazing,
pierced by anguish so amazing,
born of woman, would not weep?
Who, on Christ’s dear Mother thinking,
such a cup of sorrow drinking,
would not share her sorrows deep?

4. For his people’s sins chastised,
she beheld her son despised,
scourged, and crowned with thorns entwined;
saw him then from judgment taken,
and in death by all forsaken,
till his spirit, he resigned.

5. O good Jesu, let me borrow
something of thy mother’s sorrow,
fount of love, redeemer kind,
that my heart fresh ardor gaining,
may with thee acceptance find.


Hymn A&M 119 Throned upon the awful tree

1. Throned upon the awful tree,
King of grief, I watch with thee;
darkness veils thine anguished face,
none its lines of woe can trace.
none can tell what pangs unknown
hold thee silent and alone.

2. Silent through those three dread hours,
wrestling with the evil powers,
left alone with human sin,
gloom around thee and within,
till the appointed time is nigh,
till the Lamb of God may die.

3. Hark, that cry that peals aloud
upward through the whelming cloud!
Thou, the Father’s only Son,
thou, his own anointed One,
thou dost ask him (can it be?)
“Why hast thou forsaken me?”

4. Lord, should fear and anguish roll,
darkly o’er my sinful soul,
thou, who once were thus bereft
that thine own might ne’er be left,
teach me by that bitter cry
in the gloom to know thee nigh.

Hymn A&M 120 His are the thousand sparkling rills

1. His are the thousand sparkling rills
that from a thousand fountains burst,
and fill with music all the hills;
and yet he saith, “I thirst.”

2. All fiery pangs on battlefields;
on fever beds where sick men toss,
and in that human cry he yields
to anguish on the cross.

3. But more than pains that racked him then,
was the deep longing thirst divine
that thirsted for the souls of men:
dear Lord! and one was mine.

4. O Love most patient, give me grace;
make all my soul athirst for thee;
that parched dry lip, that fading face,
that thirst were all for me.

Hymn A&M 121 O perfect God, thy love

1. O perfect God, thy love
as perfect Man did share
here upon earth each form of ill
thy fellow men must bear.

2. Now from the tree of scorn
we hear thy voice again;
thou who didst take our mortal flesh
hast felt our mortal pain.

3. Thy body suffers thirst,
parched are thy lips and dry:
how poor the offering man can bring
thy thirst to satisfy!

4. O Saviour, by thy thirst
borne on the cross of shame,
grant us in all our sufferings here
to glorify thy Name.

5. That through each pain and grief
our souls may onward move
to gain more likeness to thy life,
more knowledge of thy love.


Hymn A&M 122 O perfect life of love!

1. O perfect life of love!
All, all is finished now;
all that he left his throne above
to do for us below.

2. No work is left undone
of all the Father willed;
his toil, his sorrows, one by one,
the scriptures have fulfilled.

3. No pain that we can share
but he has felt its smart;
all forms of human grief and care
have pierced that tender heart.

4. And on his thorn-crowned head,
and on his sinless soul,
our sins in all their guilt were laid,
that he might make us whole.

5. In perfect love he dies;
for me he dies, for me;
O all-atoning Sacrifice,
I cling by faith to thee.

6. In every time of need,
before the judgment throne,
thy work, O Lamb of God, I’ll plead,
thy merits, not my own.

7. Yet work, O Lord, in me,
as thou for me hast wrought;
and let my love the answer be
to grace thy love has brought.

Hymn A & M 123 And now, beloved Lord, thy soul resigning

1. And now, beloved Lord, thy soul resigning
into thy Father’s arms with conscious will,
calmly, with reverend grace, thy head inclining,
the throbbing brow and laboring breast grow still.

2. Freely thy life thou yieldest, meekly bending
e’en to the last beneath our sorrows’ load,
yet, strong in death, in perfect peace commending
thy spirit to thy Father and thy God.

3. Sweet Savior, in mine hour of mortal anguish,
when earth grows dim, and round me falls the night,
O breathe thy peace, as flesh and spirit languish;
at that dread eventide let there be light.

4. To thy dear Cross turn thou mine eyes in dying;
lay but my fainting head upon thy breast;
those outstretched arms receive my latest sighing
and then, O then, thine everlasting rest.

for the mansions of the dead.

With tears I pray thee, hear me:
Now, and ever unto death,

in the tomb the Savior lay;

watching long the Magdalene;
early, ere the break of day,
sorrowful she took her way
to the holy garden glade,

I would solemn vigil spend;
let me hew thee, Lord, a shrine
in this rocky heart of mine,
wherein pure embalmed cell

true affection’s offering;
close the door from sight and sound
of the busy world around;

till my Lord appears again.

Hymn  A&M 132 O for a heart to praise my God

1 O for a heart to praise my God,
a heart from sin set free;
a heart that’s sprinkled with the blood
so freely shed for me:

2 A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
my great Redeemer’s throne;
where only Christ is heard to speak,
where Jesus reigns alone:

3 A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
believing, true, and clean,
which neither life nor death can part
from him that dwells within:

4 A heart in every thought renewed,
and full of love divine;
perfect and right and pure and good —
a copy, Lord, of thine.

5 Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart,
come quickly from above;
write thy new name upon my heart,
thy new best name of Love.

Hymn A&M 133 Come, ye faithful, raise the strain

1. Come, ye faithful, raise the strain
of triumphant gladness!
God hath brought his Israel
into joy from sadness:
loosed from Pharaoh’s bitter yoke
Jacob’s sons and daughters,
led them with unmoistened foot
through the Red Sea waters.

2. ‘Tis the spring of souls today:
Christ hath burst his prison,
and from three days’ sleep in death
as a sun hath risen;
all the winter of our sins,
long and dark, is flying
from his light, to whom we give

with the day of splendor,
with the royal feast of feasts,

who with true affection
welcomes in unwearied strains
Jesus’ resurrection.

to our King Immortal,
who triumphant burst the bars
of the tomb’s dark portal;
alleluia, with the Son
God the Father praising;
alleluia yet again
to the Spirit raising.

eat we manna from above.

and lead us to thy rest.

but thou didst first come down,
through earth’s most bitter misery
to pass unto thy crown;

lead us at last to thee.

3. Thou art gone up on high;

with all the bright ones of the sky
attendant in thy train.

at thy right hand on high.

To death’s dark realm descending;

man’s ancient bondage ending,

O conquering love, thy name we bless,
With thee to heaven ascending.

3. Jesus to thee be endless praised,
For this thy great salvation;
O holy father, thine always.

Eternal praise and glory be:
