Hymn A&M 51 Lo! he comes, with clouds descending

1. Lo! he comes, with clouds descending,
once for favored sinners slain;
thousand thousand saints attending
swell the triumph of his train:
Christ appears on earth to reign.

robed in dreadful majesty;
those who set at naught and sold him,
pierced, and nailed him to the tree,
deeply wailing
shall the true Messiah see.

3. Those dear tokens of his passion
still, his dazzling body bears,
cause of endless exultation
to his ransomed worshipers;
with what rapture
gaze we on those glorious scars!

high on thine eternal throne;
Savior, take the power and glory;
claim the kingdom for thine own:
Thou shalt reign, and Thou alone.

look down on mortal men.

this wicked earth redress;
for thou art he who shalt by right
the nations all possess.

4. The nations all whom thou hast made
shall come, and all shall frame
to bow them low before thee, Lord,
and glorify thy Name.

by thy strong hand are done:
thou in thy everlasting seat
remainest God alone.

1. Hark! the glad sound! the Savior comes,

in Satan’s bondage held;
the gates of brass before him burst,
the iron fetters yield.

the bleeding soul to cure;
and with the treasures of his grace
to enrich the humble poor.

4. Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
thy welcome shall proclaim;
and heaven’s eternal arches ring
with thy beloved Name.

while slumber deep each eyelid sealeth:
Awake, Jerusalem, awake!
Midnight’s solemn hour is tolling,
and seraph-notes are onward rolling;
They call on us our part to take.
Come forth, ye virgins wise:
the Bridegroom comes, arise!
Each lamp be bright
with ready light
to grace the marriage-feast tonight.

2. Zion hears the voice that singeth
with sudden joy her glad heart springeth,
at once she wakes, she stands arrayed:
her Light has come, her Star ascending,
lo, girt with truth, with mercy blending,
her Bridegroom there, so long delayed.
All hail! God’s glorious Son,
all hail! our joy and crown,
The joyful call
we answer all,
and follow to the bridal hall.

3. Praise to him who goes before us!
Let men and angels join in chorus,
let harp and cymbal add their sound.
Twelve the gates, a pearl each portal:
we haste to join the choir immortal
within the Holy City’s bound.
Ear ne’er heard aught like this,
nor heart conceived such bliss.
We raise the song,
we swell the throng,
to praise thee ages all along.

the awful pomp, and earth aghast
shall tremble at the sign.

in state, unless he knew
thou art the sorrowing sinner’s Friend,
the gracious and the true?

4. Dwell in our hearts, O Savior blest;
so shall thine advent’s dawn
‘twixt us and thee, our bosom-guest,
be but the veil withdrawn.

1. From east to west, from shore to shore,
let every heart awake and sing
the holy child whom Mary bore,
the Christ, the everlasting King.

the form and fashion of a slave;
our very flesh our Maker shares,
his fallen creature, man, to save.

A maiden, in her lowly place,
became, in ways beyond all thought,
the chosen vessel of his grace.

4. She bowed her to the angel’s word
declaring what the Father willed,
and suddenly the promised Lord
that pure and hallowed temple filled.

sang praise above the silent field,
to shepherds poor the Lord Most High,

of the things that are, that have been,
and that future years shall see,
evermore and evermore!

glory to the new-born King,
peace on earth, and mercy mild,

Jesus, our Emmanuel.
Hark, the herald angels sing
glory to the newborn King.

born to raise the sons of earth,
born to give them second birth.
Hark, the herald angels sing
glory to the newborn King.

Hymn A&M 61 Christians, awake, salute the happy morn

1. Christians, awake, salute the happy morn
whereon the Savior of the world was born;
rise to adore the mystery of love,
which hosts of angels chanted from above;
with them, the joyful tidings first begun
of God Incarnate and the Virgin’s Son.

2. Then to the watchful shepherds it was told,
who heard the angelic herald’s voice: “Behold,
I bring good tidings of a Saviour’s birth,
to you and all the nations upon earth:
this day hath God fulfilled his promised word,
this day is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord.”

3. He spake, and straightway the celestial choir
in hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire;
the praises of redeeming love they sang,
and heaven’s whole orb with alleluias rang;
God’s highest glory was their anthem still,
peace upon earth, and unto men goodwill.

4. To Bethlehem straight the enlightened shepherds ran
to see the wonder God had wrought for man,
and found, with Joseph and the blessed Maid,
her Son, the Savior, in a manger laid;
then to their flocks, still praising God, return,
and their glad hearts with holy rapture burn.

5. O may we keep and ponder in our mind
God’s wondrous love in saving lost mankind;
trace we the Babe, who hath retrieved our loss,
from his poor manger to His bitter cross;
treading his steps, assisted by his grace,
till man’s first heavenly state again takes place.

6. Then may we hope, the angelic thrones among,
to sing, redeemed, a glad triumphal song;
he that was born upon this joyful day
around us all His glory shall display;
saved by his love, incessant we shall sing
eternal praise to heaven’s almighty King.


Hymn A&M 62 While shepherds watched their flocks by night

1. While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
all seated on the ground,
the angel of the Lord came down,

to you and all mankind.

is born of David’s line
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord;
and this shall be the sign:

all meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
and in a manger laid.”

5. Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith
appeared a shining throng
of angels praising God, who thus
addressed their joyful song:

6. “All glory be to God on high
and to the earth be peace;
goodwill henceforth from heaven to men
begin and never cease.”

let sighs and sorrows cease;
lo! from the opening heaven descends
to man the promised Peace.

angelic voices swell;
their joyful songs proclaim that “God
is born on earth to dwell.”

3. See how the shepherd band
speed on with eager feet;
come to the hallowed cave with them
the Holy Babe to greet.

4. But, oh, what sight appears
within that lowly door!
A manager, stall, and swaddling clothes,
a Child and mother poor!

The Father’s image bright?
And see we him whose arm upholds
earth and the starry height?

which veils thy glory now;

the angels prostrate bow.

with that pure love of thine,

ye who sang creation’s story,
now proclaim Messiah’s birth:
come and worship,
worship Christ, the newborn King.

watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing;
yonder shines the infant Light:

in his temple shall appear:

gather all nations to him;

Hymn A&M 65 O little town of Bethlehem

1. O little town of Bethlehem,
how still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
the silent stars go by;
yet in thy dark streets shineth
the everlasting Light;
the hopes and fears of all the years
are met in thee tonight.

2. For Christ is born of Mary;
and gathered all above,
while mortals sleep, the angels keep
their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars, together
proclaim the holy birth!
and praises sing to God the King,
and peace to men on earth.

3. How silently, how silently,
the wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
the blessings of his heaven.
No ear may hear his coming,
but in this world of sin,
where meek souls will receive him,
still the dear Christ enters in.

4. O holy Child of Bethlehem,
descend to us, we pray;
cast out our sin and enter in,
be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
the great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
our Lord Emmanuel!


Hymn A&M 66 It came upon the midnight clear

1. It came upon the midnight clear,
that glorious song of old,
from angels bending near the earth
to touch their harps of gold:
“Peace on earth, goodwill to men,
from heaven’s all gracious King.”
The world in solemn stillness lay
to hear the angels sing.

2. Still through the cloven skies they come
with peaceful wings unfurled,
and still their heavenly music floats
o’er all the weary world;
above its sad and lowly plains
they bend on hovering wing,
and ever o’er its Babel-sounds
the blessed angels sing.

3. Yet with the woes of sin and strife
the world has suffered long;
beneath the heavenly hymn have rolled
two thousand years of wrong;
and man, at war with man, hears not,
the love-song which they bring:
O hush the noise, ye men of strife
and hear the angels sing!

4. And ye, beneath life’s crushing load
whose forms are bending low,
who toil along the climbing way
with painful steps and slow;
look now, for glad and golden hours
come swiftly on the wing:
O rest beside the weary road,
and hear the angels sing.

5. For lo! the days are hastening on,
by prophets-bards foretold,
when with the ever-circling years
comes round the age of gold;
when peace shall over all the earth
its ancient splendors fling,
and the whole world give back the song
which now the angels sing.


Hymn A&M 67 In the bleak mid-winter

1. In the bleak mid-winter,
frosty wind made moan,
earth stood hard as iron,
water like a stone;
snow had fallen, snow on snow,
snow on snow,
in the bleak mid-winter,
long ago.

2. Our God, heaven cannot hold him
nor earth sustain;
heaven and earth shall flee away
when he comes to reign:
in the bleak midwinter
a stable place sufficed
the Lord God incarnate,
Jesus Christ.

3. Enough for him, whom cherubim
worship night and day,
a breastful of milk,
and a mangerful of hay:
enough for him, whom angels,
fall down before
the ox and ass and camel
which adore.

4. Angels and archangels
may have gathered there
cherubim and seraphim
thronged the air;
but only his mother,
in her maiden bliss,
worshiped the beloved
with a kiss.

5. What can I give him,
poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd,
I would bring a lamb;
if I were a wise man,
I would do my part;
yet what I can I give him
give my heart.


Hymn A&M 68 A great and mighty wonder

1. A great and mighty wonder,
a full and holy cure!
The Virgin bears the Infant
with virgin-honor pure:
Repeat the hymn again!
“To God on high be glory,
and peace on earth to men.”

2. The Word becomes incarnate,
and yet remains on high;
and cherubim sing anthems
to shepherds from the sky;
Repeat, etc.

3. While thus they sing your Monarch,
those bright angelic bands,
rejoice, ye vales and mountains,
ye oceans, clap your hands:
Repeat, etc.

4. Since all he comes to ransom,
by all be he adored,
the infant born in Bethlehem,
the Savior and the Lord:
Repeat, etc.


Hymn  A&M 69 Behold the great Creator makes

1. Behold the great Creator makes
himself a house of clay,
a robe of virgin flesh he takes
which he will wear for ay.

2. Hark, hark, the wise eternal Word,
like a weak infant cries!
In form of servant is the Lord,
and God in cradle lies.

3. This wonder struck the world amazed,
it shook the starry frame;
squadrons of spirits stood and gazed,
then down in troops, they came.

4. Glad shepherds ran to view this sight;
a choir of angels sings,
and eastern sages with delight
adore this King of kings.

5. Join then all hearts that are not stone,
and all our voices prove,
to celebrate this holy One,
the God of peace and love.


Hymn A&M 70 I sing the birth was born tonight

1. I sing the birth was born tonight,
the Author both of life and light:
the angels so did sound it;
and like the ravished shepherds said,
who saw the light and were afraid,
yet searched, and true they found it.

2. The Son of God, the eternal King,
that did us all salvation bring,
and freed the world from danger,
he whom the whole world could not take,
the Lord which heaven and earth did make,
was now laid in a manger.

3. The Father’s wisdom willed it so,
the Son’s obedience knew no “No,”
both wills were in one stature;
and, as that wisdom hath decreed,
the Word was now made flesh indeed,
and took on him our nature.

4. What comfort by him do we win,
who made himself the price of sin,
to make us heirs of glory!
To see this Babe, all innocence,
a martyr born in our defense–
can man forget this story?


Ancient & Modern (Anglican Hymns) A&M 51- 100

Hymn A&M 71 To us a Child of royal birth

1. To us a Child of royal birth,
heir of the promises is given;

he comes our fallen souls to raise;

with all the fullness of his grace.

filled with the eternal Spirit’s power,
Prophet and Priest and King behold,
and Lord of all the worlds adore.

4. The Lord of hosts, the God most high,
who quits his throne on earth to live,
with joy, we welcome from the sky,
with faith into our hearts receive.

Hymn A&M 72 Father, let me dedicate

1. Father, let me dedicate,
all this year to thee,
in whatever worldly state
thou wilt have me be:
not from sorrow, pain, or care,
freedom dare I claim;
this alone shall be my prayer,
glorify thy Name.

2. Can a child presume to choose
where or how to live?
Can a Father’s love refuse
all the best to give?
More thou givest every day
than the best can claim
nor withholdest aught that may
glorify thy Name.

3. If thou callest to the cross,
and its shadow come,
turning all my gain to loss,
shrouding heart and home;
let me think how thy dear Son
to his glory came,
and in deepest woe pray on,
“Glorify thy Name.”

4. If in mercy thou wilt spare
joys that yet are mine;
if on life, serene and fair,
brighter rays may shine;
let my glad heart, while it sings,
thee in all proclaim,
And, whate’er the future brings,
glorify thy Name.


Hymn A&M 73 For thy mercy and thy grace

1. For thy mercy and thy grace,
faithful through another year,
hear our song of thankfulness;
Jesu, our Redeemer, hear.

2. In our weakness and distress,
rock of strength, be thou our stay;
in the pathless wilderness
be our true and living way.

3. Who of us death’s awful road
in the coming year shall tread?
with thy rod and staff, O God,
comfort thou his dying bed.

4. Keep us faithful, keep us pure,
keep us evermore thine own;
help, O help us to endure;
fit us for thy promised crown.

5. So within Thy palace gate
We shall praise, on golden strings,
Thee the only Potentate,
Lord of lords, and King of kings.


Hymn A&M 74 How vain the cruel Herod’s fear

1. How vain the cruel Herod’s fear,
when told that Christ the King is near!
he takes not earthly realms away,
who gives the realms that ne’er decay.

2. The eastern sages saw from far
and followed on his guiding star;
by light their way to Light they trod,
and by their gifts confessed their God.

3. Within the Jordan’s sacred flood
the heavenly Lamb in meekness stood,
that he whom knew no sin that day,
his people’s sin might wash away.

4. And O what miracle divine,
when water reddened into wine!
He spake the word, and forth it flowed
in streams that nature ne’er bestowed.

for this thy glad epiphany:
whom with the Father we adore
and Holy Ghost forevermore.


Hymn A&M 75 Brightest and best of the sons of the morning

1. Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,
dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid;
star of the east, the horizon adorning,
guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

2. Cold on his cradle the dew-drops are shining,
low lies his head with the beasts of the stall;
angels adore him in slumber reclining,
Maker and Monarch and Saviour of all.

3. Say, shall we then yield him, in costly devotion,
odours of Edom, and offerings divine,
gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean,
myrrh from the forest, and gold from the mine?

4. Vainly we offer each ample oblation,
vainly with gifts would his favor secure,
richer by far is the heart’s adoration,
dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

The first verse may be repeated at the end.


Hymn A& M 76 Earth has many a noble city

1. Earth has many a noble city;
Bethlehem, thou dost all excel:
out of thee the Lord from heaven
came to rule his Israel.

2. Fairer than the sun at morning
was the star that told His birth,
to the world its God announcing
seen in fleshly form on earth.

3. Eastern sages at his cradle
make oblations rich and rare;
see them give, in deep devotion,
gold and frankincense and myrrh.

4. Sacred gifts of mystic meaning:
incense doth their God disclose,
gold the King of kings proclaimeth,
myrrh his sepulcher foreshows.

5. Jesu, whom the Gentiles worshipped
at thy glad epiphany,
unto thee, with God the Father
and the Spirit, glory be.


Hymn A&M 77 Earth has many a noble city

1. O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!
Bow down before him, his glory proclaim;
with gold of obedience, and incense of lowliness,
kneel and adore him: the Lord is his Name!

2. Low at his feet lay thy burden of carefulness,
high on his heart, he will bear it for thee,
comfort thy sorrows, and answer thy prayerfulness,
guiding thy steps as may best for thee be.

3. Fear not to enter his courts in the slenderness
of the poor wealth thou wouldst reckon as thine;
for truth in its beauty, and love in its tenderness,
these are the offerings to lay on his shrine.

4. These, though we bring them in trembling and fearfulness,
he will accept for the Name that is dear;
mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness,
trust for our trembling and hope for our fear.

The first verse may be repeated at the end.


Hymn A&M 78 The heavenly Child in stature grows

1. The heavenly Child in stature grows,
and, growing, learns to die;
and still his early training shows
his coming agony.

2. The Son of God his glory hides
to dwell with parents poor;
and he, who made the heavens, abides
in dwelling-place obscure.

3. Those mighty hands that rule the sky
no earthly toil refuse;
the Maker of the stars on high
a humble trade pursues.

4. He, Whom the choirs of angels praise,
bearing each dread decree,
his earthly parents now obeys
in glad humility.

5. For this thy lowliness revealed,
Jesus, we thee adore;
and praise to God the Father yield
and Spirit evermore.


Hymn A&M 79 As with gladness men of old


1. As with gladness men of old
did the guiding star behold;
as with joy they hailed its light,
leading onward, beaming bright;
so, most gracious Lord, may we
evermore be led to thee.

savior, to thy lowly bed;
there to bend the knee before
him whom heaven and earth adore;
so may we with willing feet
ever seek the mercy seat.

at that manger rude and bare;
so may we with holy joy,
pure and free from sin’s alloy,
all our costliest treasures bring,
Christ! to thee, our heavenly King.

4. Holy Jesus! every day
keep us in the narrow way;
and, when earthly things are past,
bring our ransomed souls at last
where they need no star to guide,
where no clouds thy glory hide.

5. In the heavenly country bright,
need they no created light;
thou its light, its joy, its crown,
thou its sun which goes not down;
there forever may we sing
alleluias to our King.

1. The people that in darkness sat
a glorious light have seen;

in shades of death have been.

the gathering nations come,
their joy when the reapers bear
their harvest treasures home.

as in the day when Midian fell
before the sword of God.

all power in earth and heaven.

the everlasting Lord,

shall over all extend;
on judgment and on justice based,
his reign shall have no end.

and make us thine alone,
who with the Father ever art
and Holy Spirit One.


Hymn A&M 81 Songs of thankfulness and praise


1. Songs of thankfulness and praise,
Jesu, Lord, to thee we raise,
manifested by the star
to the sages from afar;
branch of royal David’s stem
in thy birth at Bethlehem;
anthems be to thee addrest,
God in man made manifest.

2. Manifest at Jordan’s stream,
Prophet, Priest and King supreme;
and at Cana, wedding guest,
in thy Godhead manifest;
manifest in power divine,
changing water into wine;
anthems be to thee addressed,
God in man made manifest.

3. Manifest in making whole
palsied limbs and fainting soul;
manifest in valiant fight,
quelling all the devil’s might;
manifest in gracious will,
ever bringing good from ill;
anthems be to thee addressed,
God in man made manifest.

4. Sun and moon shall darkened be,
stars shall fall, the heavens shall flee;
Christ will then like lightning shine,
all will see His glorious sign;
all will then the trumpet hear,
all will see the Judge appear;
thou by all wilt be confest,
God in man made manifest.

5. Grant us grace to see thee, Lord,
mirrored in thy holy Word;
may we imitate thee now,
and be pure, as pure art thou;
that we like to thee may be
at thy great Epiphany;
and may praise thee, ever blest,
God in man made manifest.


Hymn A&M 82 Alleluia, song of sweetness

1. Alleluia, song of sweetness,
voice of joy that cannot die;
alleluia is the anthem
ever raised by choirs on high;
in the house of God abiding
thus they sing eternally.

2. Alleluia thou resoundest,
true Jerusalem and free;
alleluia, joyful mother,
all thy children sing with thee;
but by Babylon’s sad waters
mourning exiles now are we.

3. Alleluia cannot always
be our song while here below;
alleluia our transgressions
make us for awhile forgo;
fort the solemn time is coming
when our tears for sin must flow.

4. Therefore in our hymns we pray thee,
grant us, blessed Trinity,
at the last to keep thine Easter,
in our home beyond the sky,
there to thee for ever singing
alleluia joyfully.

Hymn A&M 83 Creator of the world, to thee


1. Creator of the world, to thee
an endless rest of joy belongs;
and heavenly choirs are ever free
to sing on high their festal songs.

2. But we are fallen creatures here,
where pain and sorrow daily come;
and how can we, in exile drear,
sing out, as they, sweet songs of home?

3. O Father, who dost promise still,
that they who mourn shall blessed be;
help us to grieve for deeds of ill
that banish us so long from thee:

4. And, while we grieve, give faith to rest
in hope upon thy loving care;
till thou restore us, with the blest,
their songs of praise in heaven to share.

Hymn A&M 84 O MAKER of the world, give ear

In pitying love vouchsafe to hear
The prayers our contrite spirits raise
In this our fast of forty days.

2. All hearts are open unto thee;
Thou knowest each infirmity;
Now, as we turn to seek thy face,
Pour down on us thy pardoning grace.

To make the body serve the soul:
So may thy loving kindness bless
Our fast with fruits of holiness.


Hymn A&M 85 Jesu, who this our Lenten-tide

1. Jesu, who this our Lenten-tide
Of abstinence hast sanctified,
Be with thy church is saving power
In this her penitential hour.

2. And, as thou dost forgive the past,
Thy sheltering arms around us cast,
That we may in thy grace remain
And fall not back to sins again.

3. Make, Lord, this Lenten discipline
An expiation for our sin;
And through these days ourselves prepare
The joys of Eastertide to share.


Hymn A&M 86 Saviour, when in dust to thee


1. Saviour, when in dust to thee
low we bow the adoring knee,
when, repentant, to the skies
scarce we lift our weeping eyes,
O by all the pains and woes
suffered once for man below,
bending from thy throne on high,
hear our solemn litany.

2. By thy helpless infant years,
by thy life of want and tears,
by thy days of sore distress
in the savage wilderness,
by the dread mysterious hour
of the insulting tempter’s power,
turn, O turn a favoring eye,
hear our solemn litany.

3. By the sacred griefs that wept
o’er the grave where Lazarus slept,
by the boding tears that flowed
over Salem’s loved abode,
by the mournful world that told
treachery lurked within thy fold,
from thy seat above the sky,
hear our solemn litany.

4. By thine hour of dire despair,
by thine agony of prayer,
by the cross, the nail, the thorn,
piercing spear, and torturing scorn,
by the gloom that veiled the skies
o’er the dreadful sacrifice,
listen to our humble cry,
hear our solemn litany.

5. By thy deep expiring groan,
by the sad sepulchral stone,
by the vault whose dark abode
held in vain the rising God,
O, from earth to heaven restored,
mighty, re-ascended Lord,
listen, listen to the cry
of our solemn litany.

bound, and longing to be free;
weary, waiting for my rest:
God be merciful to me.

sinfulness in all I see,
I can only bring my need:
God be merciful to me.

3. Broken heart and downcast eyes
dare not lift themselves to thee;
yet thou canst interpret sighs:
God be merciful to me.

4. From this sinful heart of mine
to thy bosom I would flee:
I am not mine own, but thine:
God be merciful to me.

5. There is One beside the throne,
and my only hope and plea
are in him and him alone:
God be merciful to me.

6. He my cause will undertake,
my interpreter will be;
he’s my all; and for his sake
God be merciful to me.

lies bleeding and unbound,
one only hand, a pierced hand,
can salve the sinner’s wound.

2. When sorrow swells the laden breast,
and tears of anguish flow,
one only heart, a broken heart,
can feel the sinner’s woe.

3. When penitential grief has wept
over some foul dark spot,
one only stream, a stream of blood,
can wash away the blot.

4. ‘Tis Jesus’ blood that washes white,
his hand that brings relief,
his heart that’s touched with all our joys,
and feels for all our grief.

5. Lift up thy bleeding hand, O Lord,
unseal that cleansing tide;
we have no shelter from our sin
but in thy wounded side.


Hymn A&M 89 My spirit longs for thee


1. My spirit longs for thee,
within my troubled breast,
though I unworthy be
of so divine a Guest.

2. Of so divine a Guest
unworthy though I be,
yet has my heart no rest
unless it comes from thee.

in vain I look around;
in all that I can see
no rest is to be found.

4. No rest is to be found
but in thy blessed love;
O let my wish be crowned
and send it from above.

Hymn A&M 90 Still nigh me, O my Savior, stand

1. Still nigh me, O my Savior, stand,
and guard in fierce temptation’s hour;
hide in the hollow of my hand,
show forth in me thy saving power;
still be thine arm my sure defense:
nor earth nor hell shall pluck me thence.

2. Still let thy love point out my war;
how wondrous things thy love hath wrought!
still lead me, lest I go astray;
direct my work, inspire my thought;
and if I fall, soon may I hear
thy voice, and know that love is near.

3. In suffering be thy love my peace,
in weakness be thy love my power;
and when the storms of life shall cease,
Jesus, in that tremendous hour,
in death as life be thou my guide,
and save me, who for me hast died.

Hymn A&M 91 Christian, dost thou see them

1. Christian, dost thou see them
on the holy ground,
how the troops of Midian,
prowl and prowl around?
Christian, up and smite them,
counting gain but loss,
smite them by the merit
of the holy cross.

2. Christian, dost thou feel them,
how they work within,
striving, tempting, luring,
goading into sin?
Christian, never tremble;
never be downcast;
smite them by the virtue
of the lenten fast.

3. Christian, dost thou hear them,
how they speak thee fair?
“Always fast and vigil?
Always watch and prayer?”
Christian, answer boldly:
“While I breathe I pray!”
Peace shall follow battle,
night shall end in day.

4. “Well I know thy trouble,
O my servant true;
thou art very weary,
I was weary, too;
But that toil shall make thee
some day all mine own,
and the end of sorrow
shall be near my throne.”


Hymn A&M 92 Forty days and forty nights

1. Forty days and forty nights
thou wast fasting in the wild;
forty days and forty nights
tempted, and yet undefiled.

2. Sunbeams scorching all the day;
chilly dew-drops nightly shed;
prowling beasts about thy way;
stones thy pillow, earth thy bed.

3. Shall not we thy sorrow share
and from earthly joys abstain,
fasting with unceasing prayer,
glad with thee to suffer pain?

4. And if Satan, vexing sore,
flesh or spirit should assail,
thou, his vanguisher before,
grant we may not faint nor fall.

5. So shall we have peace divine:
holier gladness ours shall be;
round us, too, shall angels shine,
such as ministered to thee.

6. Keep, O keep us, Saviour dear,
ever constant by thy side;
that we thee we may appear
at the eternal Eastertide.

1. O Lord, turn not thy face from me,
who lie in woeful state,
lamenting all my sinful life
before thy mercy gate;

2. A gate which opens wide to those
that do lament their sin;
shut not that gate against me, Lord,
but let me enter in.

3. And call me not too strict accound,
how I have sojourned here;
for then my guilty conscience knows
how vile I shall appear.

this is my humble prayer;
for mercy, Lord, is all my suit,
Lord, let thy mercy spare.

ere for us it pass away,
on our knees, we fall and pray.

fill us with heart-searching fears,
ere that awful doom appears.

kneeling lowly at thy door,
ere it close forevermore.

by thy supplicating cry,
by thy willingness to die,

for Jerusalem below,
let us not thy love forego.

Lest we lose this day of grace,
Ere we shall behold thy face.

we ask to-night thy watchful care;
O grant us calm repose in thee,
a quiet night from perils free.

still keep the heart awake to thee,
be thy right hand outstretched above
guard those who serve the lord they love.

the crafts and subtleties of hell:

who thou hast purchased with thy blood.

all praise, eternal Son, to thee,
who with the spirit we adore,
forever and forevermore.


Hymn A&M 96 The royal banners forward go

1. The royal banners forward go,
the cross shines forth in mystic glow;
where he in flesh, our flesh who made,
our sentence bore, our ransom paid.

2. There whilst he hung, his sacred side,
by soldier’s spear was opened wide,
to cleanse us in the precious flood
of water mingled with his blood.

3. Fulfilled is now what David told
in true prophetic song of old,
how God the heathen’s king should be,
for God is reigning from the tree.

4. O tree of glory, tree most fair,
ordained those holy limbs to bear,
how bright in purple robe it stood,
the purple of a savior’s blood.

5. Upon its arms, like balance true,
he weighed the price for sinners due,
the price which none but he could pay,
and spoiled the spoiler of his prey.

6. To thee, eternal Three in One,
let homage meet by all be done:
as by the cross thou dost restore,
so rule and guide us evermore.


Ancient & Modern (Anglican Hymns) A&M 51- 100

Hymn A&M 97 Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle

1. Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle,
sing the last, the dread affray;
o’er the cross, the victor’s trophy,
sound the high triumphal lay,
how, the pains of death enduring,
earth’s Redeemer won the day.

2. When at length the appointed fullness]
of the sacred time was come,
he was sent, the world’s Creator,
from the Father’s heavenly home,
and was found in human fashion,
offspring of the virgin’s womb.

3. Now the thirty years are ended
which on earth he willed to see,
willingly he meets his passion,
born to set his people free;
on the cross, the Lamb is lifted,
there the sacrifice to be.

4. There the nails and spear He suffers,
vinegar and gall and reed;
from His sacred body pierced
blood and water both proceed:
precious flood, which all creation
from the stain of sin hath freed.

5. Faithful Cross, above all others,
one and only noble Tree,
none in foliage, none in blossom,
none in fruit thy peer may be;
sweet the wood, and sweet the iron,
and thy load, most sweet is he.

6. Bend, O lofty Tree, thy branches,
thy too rigid sinews bend;
and awhile the stubborn hardness,
which thy birth bestowed, suspend;
and the limbs of heaven’s high Monarch
gently on thine arms extend.

7. Thou alone wast counted worthy
this world’s Ransom to sustain,
that a shipwrecked race for ever
might a port of refuge gain,
with the sacred Blood anointed
of the Lamb for sinners slain.

8. Praise and honor to the Father,
praise and honor to the Son,
praise and honor to the Spirit,
ever Three and ever One:
one in might, and One in glory,
while eternal ages run.

thou David’s royal Son,

the King and Blessed One.
All glory, etc.

3. The company of angels
are praising thee on high;

created make reply.

with palms before thee went;

before thee we present.
All glory, etc.

they sang their hymns of praise;
to thee, now high exalted,
our melody we raise.
All glory, etc.

accept the prayers we bring,
who in all good delightest,
thou good and gracious King.
All glory, etc.


Hymn A&M 99 Ride on! ride on in majesty!

1. Ride on! ride on in majesty!
Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry;
O Savior meek, pursue thy road
with palms and scattered garments strowed.

2. Ride on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
O Christ, thy triumphs now begin
o’er captive death and conquered sin.

3. Ride on! ride on in majesty!
The angel-squadrons of the sky
look down with sad and wondering eyes
to see the approaching sacrifice.

4. Ride on! ride on in majesty!
Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;
the Father on his sapphire throne
awaits his own anointed Son.

5. Ride on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
bow thy meek head to mortal pain,
then take O God, thy power, and reign.

Hymn A&M 100 Lord, through this Holy Week of our salvation


1. Lord, through this Holy Week of our salvation,
which thou hast won for us who went astray,
in all the conflict of thy sore temptation
we would continue with thee day by day.

2. We would not leave thee, though our weak endurance
makes us unworthy here to take our part;
yet give us strength to trust the sweet assurance
that thou, O Lord, art greater than our heart.

3. Thou didst forgive thine own who slept for sorrow,
thou didst have pity: O have pity now,
and let us watch through each sad eve and morrow
with thee, in holy prayer and solemn vow.

4. Along that sacred way where thou art leading,
which thou didst take to save our souls from loss,
let us go also, till we see thee pleading
in all-prevailing prayer upon thy cross.

5. Until thou see thy bitter travail’s ending,
the world redeemed, the will of God complete,
and, to thy Father’s hands, thy soul commending,
thou lay the work he gave thee at his feet.
