Hymn A&M 151 O joy, because the circling year

1. O joy, because the circling year
hath brought our day of blessing here!
The day when first the light divine
upon the Church began to shine.

2. Like unto quivering tongues of flame
upon each one the Spirit came:
tongues, that the earth might hear their call,
and fire, that love might burn in all.

3. Thus unto all was spread abroad
the wonder of the works of God;
they knew the prophet’s word fulfilled,
and owned the work which God had willed.

4. Of old in every hallowed breast
thou cansest in thy grace to rest:
O grant us now from sin release,
and in our time, good Lord, give peace.


Hymn A&M 152 Come, O Creator Spirit, come

1. Come, O Creator Spirit, come,
and make within out heart thy home;
to us thy grace celestial give,
who of thy breathing move and live.

2. O Comforter, that name is thine,
of God most high the gift divine;
the well of life, the fire of love,
our souls’ anointing from above.

3. Thou dost appear in sevenfold dower
the sign of God’s almighty power;
the Father’s promise, making rich
with saving truth our earthly speech.

4. Our senses with thy light inflame,
our hearts to heavenly love reclaim;
our bodies’ poor infirmity
with strength perpetual fortify.

5. Our mortal foes afar repel,
grant us henceforth in peace to dwell;
and so to us, with thee for guide,
no ill shall come, no harm betide.

6. May we by thee the Father learn,
and know the Son, and thee discern,
who art of both; and thus adore
in perfect faith forevermore.

O shed thine influence from above,
And still from age to age convey,
The wonders of this sacred day.

Be God’s surpassing glory sung;
Let all the listening earth be taught
The acts our great Redeemer

Still, o’er thy holy Church preside;
Still, let mankind thy blessings
Spirit of mercy, truth, and love.

Hymn A&M 154 When God of old came down from heaven

1. When God of old came down from heaven,
in power and wrath he came;
before his feet, the clouds were riven,
half darkness and half flame:

2. But when he came the second time,
he came in power and love;
softer than gale at morning prime
hovered his holy Dove.

3. The fires, that rushed on Sinai down
in sudden torrents dread,
now gently light, a glorious crown,
on every sainted head.

4. And as on Israel’s awestruck ear
the voice exceeding loud,
the trump that angels quake to hear,
thrilled from the deep, dark cloud;

5. So, when the Spirit of our God
came down his flock to find,
a voice from heaven was heard abroad,
a rushing, mighty wind.

6. It fills the Church of God; it fills
the sinful world around;
only in stubborn hearts and wills
no place for it is found.

7. Come, Lord, come Wisdom, Love, and Power,
open our ears to hear;
let us not miss the accepted hour;
save, Lord, by love or fear.

Hymn A&M 155 Our Lord, his passion ended


1. Our Lord, his passion ended,
hath gloriously ascended,
yet though from him divided,
he leaves us not unguided;
all his benefits to crown
he hath sent his Spirit down,
burning like a flame of fire
his disciples to inspire.

2. God’s Spirit is directing;
no more they sit expecting;
but forth to all the nation
they go with exultation;
that which God in them hath wrought
fills their life and soul and thought;
so their witness now can do
work as great in others too.

3. The centuries go gliding,
but still, we have abiding
with us that Spirit Holy
to make us brave and lowly–
lowly, for we feel our need:
God alone is strong indeed;
brave, for with the Spirit’s aid
we can venture unafraid.

4. O Lord of every nation,
fill us with inspiration!
We know our own unfitness,
yet for thee would bear witness.
By thy Spirit now we raise
to the heavenly Father praise:
Holy Spirit, Father, Son,
make us know thee, ever One.


Hymn A&M 156 Come, thou Holy Spirit, come

1. Come, thou Holy Spirit, come,
and from thy celestial home
shed a ray of light divine!
Come, thou Father of the poor!
Come, thou Source of all our store!
Come, within our bosoms shine!

2. Thou, of comforters the best;
thou, the soul’s most welcome guest;
sweet refreshment here below;
in our labor, rest most sweet;
grateful coolness in the heat;
solace in the midst of woe.

3. O most blessed Light divine,
shine within these hearts of thine,
and our inmost being fill!
Where thou art not, man hath naught,
nothing good in deed or thought,
nothing free from taint of ill.

4. Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
on our dryness pour thy dew;
wash the stains of guilt away;
bend the stubborn heart and will;
melt the frozen, warm the chill;
guide the steps that go astray.

5. On the faithful, who adore
and confess thee, evermore
in thy sevenfold gift descend;
give them virtue’s sure reward
give them thy salvation, Lord;
give them joys that never end.


Hymn A&M 157 Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire


1. Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
and lighten with celestial fire.
Thou the anointing Spirit art,
who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.

2. Thy blessed unction from above
is comfort, life, and fire of love.
Enable with perpetual light
the dullness of our blinded sight.

3. Anoint and cheer our soiled face
with the abundance of thy grace.
Keep far our foes, give peace at home:
where thou art guide, no ill can come.

4. Teach us to know the Father, Son,
and thee, of both, to be but One,
that through the ages all along,
this may be our endless song:
Praise to thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus, Redeemer, ever to be worshiped,
life-giving Spirit, Comforter most gracious,
God everlasting;

one perfect Godhead, love that never faileth,
light of the angels, succor of the needy,
hope of all living;

thee every creature praiseth without ceasing;
we too would sing thee psalms of true devotion:
hear, we beseech thee.

thine, as is meet, be honor, praise, and blessing
now and forever.

Hymn A&M 159 Most ancient of all mysteries

1. Most ancient of all mysteries,
before thy throne we lie;
have mercy now, most merciful,
most holy Trinity.

2. When heaven and earth were yet unmade,
when time was yet unknown,
thou in thy bliss and majesty
didst live and love alone.

3. Thou wast not born; there was no fount
from which thy being flowed;
there is no end which thou canst reach:
but thou art simply God.

4. How wonderful creation is,
the work which thou didst bless!
And O what then must thou be like,
eternal Loveliness!

5. Most ancient of all mysteries,
low at thy throne we lie;
have mercy now, most merciful,
most holy Trinity.

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity.

casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
perfect in power, in love, and purity.

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity.


Hymn A&M 161 Bright the vision that delighted


1. Bright the vision that delighted
once the sight of Judah’s seer;
sweet the countless tongues united
to entrance the prophet’s ear.

2. Round the Lord in glory seated
cherubim and seraphim
filled his temple, and repeated
each to each the alternate hymn:

3. “Lord, thy glory fills the heaven;
earth is with its fullness stored;
unto thee be glory given,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord.”

4. Heaven is still with glory ringing,
earth takes up the angels’ cry,
“Holy, Holy, Holy,” singing,
“Lord of Hosts, the Lord most high.”

5. With his seraph train before him,
with his holy Church below,
thus unite we to adore him,
bid we thus our anthem flow:

6. “Lord, thy glory fills the heaven;
earth is with its fullness stored;
unto thee be glory given,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord.”


Hymn A&M 162  I bind unto myself today


1. I bind unto myself today
the strong Name of the Trinity,
by invocation of the same,
the Three in One, and One in Three.

2. I bind this day to me forever,
by power of faith, Christ’s Incarnation;
his baptism in Jordan river;
his death on cross for my salvation;
his bursting from the spicèd tomb;
his riding up the heavenly way;
his coming at the day of doom:
I bind unto myself today.

3. I bind unto myself the power
of the great love of cherubim;
the sweet “Well done” in judgment hour;
the service of the seraphim;
confessors’ faith, apostles’ word,
the patriarchs’ prayers, the prophets’ scrolls;
all good deeds done unto the Lord,
and purity of virgin souls.

4. I bind unto myself today
the virtues of the starlit heaven
the glorious sun’s life-giving ray,
the whiteness of the moon at even,
the flashing of the lightning free,
the whirling wind’s tempestuous shocks,
the stable earth, the deep salt sea,
around the old eternal rocks.

5. I bind unto myself today
the power of God to hold and lead,
his eye to watch, his might to stay,
his ear to hearken, to my need;
the wisdom of my God to teach,
his hand to guide, his shield to ward;
the word of God to give me speech,
his heavenly host to be my guard.

6. Against the demon snares of sin,
The vice that gives temptation force,
The natural lusts that war within,
The hostile men that mar my course,
Or few or man, far or nigh,
in every place, and in all hours,
against their fierce hostility
l bind to me these holy powers.

7. Against all Satan’s spells and wiles,
Against false words of heresy,
Against the knowledge that defiles,
Against the heart’s idolatry,
Against the W1zard’s evil craft,
Against the death-wound and the burning,
The choking wave, the poisoned shaft,
Protect me, Christ, till thy returning.

8. Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

9. I bind unto myself today
the strong Name of the Trinity,
by invocation of the same,
the Three in One, and One in Three.
Of whom all nature hath creation,
eternal Father, Spirit, Word:
praise to the Lord of my salvation,
salvation is of Christ the Lord.

Ruler of the earth and sea,
hear us while we lift to thee
holy chant and psalm.

lift on us thy light divine;
and let charity benign
breathe on us her balm.

3. Light of lights! when falls the even,
let it close on sin forgiven;
fold us in the peace of heaven;
shed a holy calm.

dimly here we worship thee;
with the saints hereafter we
hope to bear the palm.

our hope for years to come,
our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal home:

2. Benearth the shadow of thy throne,
thy saints have dwelt secure;
sufficient is thine arm alone,
and our defense is sure.

3. Before the hills in order stood,
or earth received her frame,
from everlasting thou art God,
to endless years the same.

4. A thousand ages in thy sight
are like an evening gone;
short as the watch that ends the night
before the rising sun.

5. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
bears all its sons away;
they fly, forgotten, as a dream
dies at the opening day.

6. O God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
be thou our guide while troubles last,
and our eternal home!


Hymn A&M 166 All people that on earth do dwell

1. All people that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice:
him serve with fear, his praise forth tell,
come ye before him and rejoice.

2. The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;
without our aid he did us make:
we are his folk, he doth us feed,
and for his sheep he doth us take.

3. O enter then his gates with praise,
approach with joy his courts unto;
praise, laud, and bless his Name always,
for it is seemly so to do.

4. For why? the Lord our God is good,
his mercy is for ever sure;
his truth at all times firmly stood,
and shall from age to age endure.

the God whom heaven and earth adore,
from men and from the angel host
be praise and glory evermore.


Hymn A&M 167 O worship the King


1. O worship the King,
all glorious above!
O gratefully sing
his power and his love!
Our shield and defender,
the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendour,
and girded with praise.

2. O tell of his might!
O sing of his grace!
Whose robe is the light,
whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath
the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is his path
on the wings of the storm.

3. The earth, with its store
of wonders untold,
Almighty, thy power
hath founded of old,
hath ‘stablished it fast
by a changeless decree,
and round it hath cast,
like a mantle, the sea.

4. Thy bountiful care,
what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air;
it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills,
it descends to the plain,
and sweetly distills
in the dew and the rain.

5. Frail children of dust,
and feeble as frail,
in thee do we trust,
nor find thee to fail;
thy mercies, how tender!
How firm to the end!
Our Maker, Defender,
Redeemer, and Friend!

6. O measureless Might,
ineffable Love,
while angels delight
to hymn thee above,
thy ransomed creation,
though feeble their lays,
with true adoration
shall sing to thy praise.


Hymn A&M 168 There is a book, who runs may read



1. There is a book, who runs may read,
which heavenly truth imparts,
and all the lore its scholars need,
pure eyes and Christian hearts.
The works of God above, below,
within us and around,
are pages in that book, to show
how God himself is found.

2. The glorious sky embracing all
is like the Maker’s love,
wherewith encompassed, great and small
in peace and order move.
The moon above, the Church below,
a wondrous race they run,
but all their radiance, all their glow,
each borrows of its Sun.

3. The Savior lends the light and heat
that crowns his holy hill;
the saints, like stars, around his seat,
perform their courses still.
The dew of heaven is like thy grace,
it steals in silence down;
but where it lights, the favored place
by richest fruits is known.

4. One Name above all glorious names
with its ten thousand tongues
the everlasting sea proclaims,
echoing angelic songs.
The raging fire, the roaring wind,
thy boundless power display:
but in the gentler breeze we find
thy Spirit’s viewless way.

5. Two worlds are ours: ’tis only sin
forbids us to descry
the mystic heaven and earth within,
plain as the sea and sky.
Thou, who hast given me eyes to see
and love this sight so fair,
give me a heart to find out thee,
and read thee everywhere.


Hymn A&M 169 My God, how wonderful thou art


1. My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty how bright,
how beautiful thy mercy seat,
in depths of burning light!

2. How dread are thine eternal years,
O everlasting Lord,
by prostrate spirits day and night
incessantly adored!

3. How wonderful, how beautiful,
the sight of thee must be,
thine endless wisdom, boundless power,
and aweful purity!

4. O how I fear thee, living God,
with deepest, tenderest fears,
and worship thee with trembling hope
and penitential tears!

5. Yet I may love thee too, O Lord,
almighty as thou art,
for thou hast stooped to ask of me
the love of my poor heart.

6. No earthly father loves like thee,
no mother, e’er so mild,
bears and forbears as thou hast done
with me, thy sinful child.

7. Father of Jesus, love’s reward,
what rapture will it be,
prostrate before thy throne to lie,
and gaze and gaze on thee!


Hymn A&M 170 The spacious firmament on high


1. The spacious firmament on high,
with all the blue ethereal sky,
and spangled heavens, a shining frame,
their great Original proclaim.
The unwearied sun from day to day
does his Creator’s power display;
and publishes to every land
the work of an almighty hand.

2. Soon as the evening shades prevail,
the moon takes up the wondrous tale,
and nightly to the listening earth
repeats the story of her birth:
whilst all the stars that round her burn,
and all the planets in their turn,
confirm the tidings, as they roll
and spread the truth from pole to pole.

3. What though in solemn silence all
move round the dark terrestrial ball?
What though no real voice nor sound
amid their radiant orbs be found?
In reason’s ear they all rejoice,
and utter forth a glorious voice;
for ever singing as they shine,
“The hand that made us is divine.”


Hymn A&M 171 For the beauty of the earth

for the beauty of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
this our grateful hymn of praise.

2. For the beauty of each hour
of the day and of the night,
hill and vale, and tree and flower,
sun and moon, and stars of light,
Lord of all, etc.

3. For the joy of human love,
brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on earth, and friends above,
pleasures pure and undefiled,
Lord of all, etc.

4. For each perfect gift of thine
to our race so freely given,
graces human and divine,
flowers of earth and buds of heaven,
Lord of all, etc.

5. For thy church which evermore
lifteth holy hands above,
offering up on every shore
her pure sacrifice of love,
Lord of all, etc.


Hymn A&M 172 All creatures of our God and King


1. All creatures of our God and King,

thou silver moon that gently gleams,

unfoldest blessings on our way,

The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
let them his glory also show:

forgiving others, take your part,
O sing ye Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
praise God and on him cast your care:
O praise him, etc.

6. And thou, most kind and gentle death,
waiting to hush our latest breath,
O praise him, Alleluia!
Thou leadest home the child of God,
and Christ our Lord the way hath trod:
O praise him, etc.

7. Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship him in humbleness,
O praise him, Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
and praise the Spirit, Three in One:
O praise him, etc.


Hymn A&M 173 I praised the earth, in beauty seen


1. I praised the earth, in beauty seen,
with garlands gay of various green;
I praised the sea, whose ample field
shone glorious as a silver shield–
and earth and ocean seemed to say,
“Our beauties are but for a day.”

2. I praised the sun, whose chariot rolled
on wheels of amber and of gold;
I praised the moon, whose softer eye
gleamed sweetly through the summer sky–
and moon and sun in answer said,
“Our days of light are numbered.”

3. O God, O good beyond compare,
if thus thy meaner works are fair,
if thus thy beauties gild the span
of ruined earth and sinful man,
how glorious must the mansion be
where thy redeemed shall dwell with thee!


Hymn A&M 174  Lord of beauty, thine the splendor


1. Lord of beauty, thine the splendor
shown in earth and sky and sea,
burning sun and moonlight tender,
hill and river, flower and tree:
lest we fail our praise to render
touch our eyes that they may see.

2. Lord of wisdom, whom obeying
mighty waters ebb and flow,
while unhasting, undelaying,
planets on their courses go:
in thy laws thyself displaying,
teach our minds thyself to know.

3. Lord of life, alone sustaining
all below and all above,
Lord of love, by whose ordaining
sun and stars sublimely move:
in our earthly spirits reigning,
lift our hearts that we may love.

4. Lord of beauty, bid us own thee,
Lord of truth, our footsteps guide,
till as Love our hearts enthrone thee,
and, with vision purified,
Lord of all, when all have known thee,
thou in all art glorified.


Hymn A&M 175 The Lord is King! lift up thy voice


1. The Lord is King! lift up thy voice,
O earth; and all ye heavens, rejoice!
From world to world the joy shall ring,
The Lord omnipotent is King.

2. The Lord is King! who then shall dare
resist his will, distrust his care,
or murmur at his wise decrees,
or doubt his royal promises?

3. He reigns! ye saints, exalt your strains;
your God is King, your Father reigns;
and he is at the Father’s side,
the Man of love, the Crucified.

4. Alike pervaded by his eye
all parts of his dominion lie:
this world of ours and worlds unseen,
and thin the boundary between.

5. One lord one empire all secures:
he reigns, and life and death are yours;
through earth and heaven one song shall ring,
the lord omnipotent is king!


Hymn A&M 176 Sometimes a light surprises

1. Sometimes a light surprises
the Christian while he sings;
it is the Lord who rises
with healing in his wings:
when comforts are declining,
he grants the soul again
a season of clear shining,
to cheer it after rain.

2. In holy contemplation
we sweetly then pursue
the theme of God’s salvation,
and find it ever new;
set free from present sorrow,
we cheerfully can say,
let the unknown tomorrow
bring with it what it may,

3. It can bring with it nothing
but he will bear us through:
who gives the lilies clothing
will clothe his people, too:
beneath the spreading heavens
no creature but is fed;
and he who feeds the ravens
will give his children bread.

4. Though vine nor fig tree neither
their wonted fruit should bear,
though all the fields should wither,
nor flocks nor herds be there;
yet, God the same abiding,
his praise shall tune my voice;
for, while in him confiding,
I cannot but rejoice.


Hymn A&M 177 When all thy mercies, O my God

1. When all thy mercies, O my God,
my rising soul surveys,
transported with the view, I’m lost
in wonder, love, and praise.

2. Unnumbered comforts to my soul
thy tender care bestowed,
before my infant heart conceived
from whom those comforts flowed.

3. When in the slippery paths of youth
with heedless steps, I ran,
thine arm unseen conveyed me safe,
and led me up to man.

4. Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
my daily thanks employ;
and not the least a cheerful heart
that tastes those gifts with joy.

5. Through every period of my life
thy goodness I’ll pursue
and after death, in distant worlds,
the glorious theme renew.

6. Through all eternity to thee
a joyful song I’ll raise;
for, oh, eternity’s too short
to utter all thy praise!


Hymn A&M 178 The God of love my Shepherd is

1. The God of love my Shepherd is,
and he that doth me feed;
while he is mine and I am his,
what can I want or need?

2. He leads me to the tender grass,
where I both feed and rest;
then to the streams that gently pass,
in both, I have the best.

3. Or if I stray, he doth convert,
and bring my mind in frame,
and all this not for my desert,
but for his holy Name.

4. Yea, in death’s shady black abode
well may I walk, not fear;
for thou art with me, and thy rod
to guide, thy staff to bear.

5. Surely thy sweet and wondrous love
shall measure all my days;
and as it never shall remove
so neither shall my praise.


Hymn A&M 179 The Lord my pasture shall prepare

1. The Lord my pasture shall prepare
and feed me with a shepherd’s care;
his presence shall my wants supply
and guard me with a watchful eye;
my noonday walks he shall attend
and all my midnight hours defend.

2. When in the sultry glebe I faint
or on the thirsty mountain pant,
to fertile vales and dewy meads
my weary, wandering steps he leads,
where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,
amid the verdant landscape flow.

3. Though in a bare and rugged way,
through devious lonely wilds, I stray,
thy bounty shall my pains beguile;
the barren wilderness shall smile,
with sudden greens and herbage crowned,
and streams shall murmur all around.

4. Though in the paths of death I tread,
with gloomy horrors overspread,
my steadfast heart shall fear no ill,
for thou, O Lord, art with me still;
thy friendly crook shall give me aid
and guide me through the dreadful shade.


Hymn A&M 180 Father, whate’er of earthly bliss


1. Father, whate’er of earthly bliss
thy sovereign will denies,
accepted at thy throne of grace
let this petition rise:

2. Give me a calm and thankful heart,
from every murmur free;
the blessings of thy grace impart,
and let me live to thee.

3. Let the sweet hope that thou art mine
my path of life attend,
thy presence through my journey shine,
and crown my journey’s end.

Hymn A&M 181 God moves in a mysterious way

1. God moves in a mysterious way
his wonders to perform:
he plants his footsteps in the sea,
and rides upon the storm.

2. Deep in unfathomable mines,
of never-failing skill,
he treasures up his bright designs,
and works his sovereign will.

3. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
the clouds ye so much dread
are big with mercy, and shall break
in blessings on your head.

4. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
but trust him for his grace;
behind a frowning providence
he hides a smiling face.

5. His purposes will ripen fast,
unfolding every hour:
the bud may have a bitter taste,
but sweet will be the flower.

6. Blind unbelief is sure to err,
and scan his work in vain;
God is his own interpreter,
and he will make it plain.


Hymn A&M 182 Father, hear the prayer we offer


1. Father, hear the prayer we offer:
not for ease, that prayer shall be,
but for strength, that we may ever
live our lives courageously.

2. Not forever in green pastures
do we ask our way to be ;
but the steep and rugged pathway
may we tread rejoicingly.

3. Not forever by still waters
would we idly rest and stay;
but would smite the living fountains
from the rocks along our way.

4. Be our strength in hours of weakness,
in our wanderings be our Guide;
through endeavor, failure, danger,
Father, be thou at our side.


Hymn A&M 183 A safe stronghold our God is still

1. A safe stronghold our God is still,
a trusty shield and weapon;
he’ll keep us clear from all the ill
that hath us now o’ertaken.
The ancient prince of hell
hath risen with purpose fell;
strong mail of craft and power
he weareth in this hour;
on earth is not his fellow.

2. With force of arms we nothing can,
full soon were we down-ridden;
but for us fights the proper Man,
whom God himself hath bidden.
Ask ye, who is this same?
Christ Jesus is his name,
the Lord Sabaoth’s Son;
he, and no other one,
shall conquer in the battle.

3. And were this world all devils o’er,
and watching to devour us,
we lay it not to heart so sore;
nor they can overpower us.
And let the prince of ill
look grim as e’er he will,
he harms us not a whit;
for why?–his doom is writ;
a word shall quickly slay him.

4. God’s word, for all their craft and force,
one moment will not linger,
but, spite of hell, shall have its course;
’tis written by his finger.
And though they take our life,
goods, honor, children, wife,
yet is their profit small;
these things shall vanish all:
the City of God remaineth!


Hymn A&M 184 Dear Lord and Father of mankind

1. Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
forgive our foolish ways!
Re-clothe us in our rightful mind,
in purer lives thy service find,
in deeper reverence, praise;

2. In simple trust like theirs who heard,
beside the Syrian sea,
the gracious calling of the Lord,
let us, like them, without a word,
rise up and follow thee;

3. O Sabbath rest by Galilee!
O calm of hills above,
where Jesus knelt to share with thee
the silence of eternity
interpreted by love!

4. Drop thy still dews of quietness,
till all our strivings cease;
take from our souls the strain and stress,
and let our ordered lives confess
the beauty of thy peace;

5. Breathe through the heats of our desire
thy coolness and thy balm;
let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm;


Hymn A&M 185 Praise to the Holiest in the height


1. Praise to the Holiest in the height,
and in the depth be praise;
in all his words most wonderful,
most sure in all his ways!

2. O loving wisdom of our God!
When all was sin and shame,
a second Adam to the fight
and to the rescue came.

3. O wisest love! that flesh and blood,
which did in Adam fail,
should strive afresh against the foe,
should strive, and should prevail;

4. And that the highest gift of grace
should flesh and blood refine:
God’s presence and his very self,
and essence all-divine.

5. O generous love! that he who smote
in man for ma the foe,
the double agony in Man
for man should undergo.

6. And in the garden secretly,
and on the cross on high,
should teach his brethren, and inspire
to suffer and to die.

7. Praise to the Holiest in the height,
and in the depth be praise;
in all his words most wonderful,
most sure in all his ways!

Hymn A&M 186 Firmly I believe and truly

1. Firmly I believe and truly
God is Three, and God is One;
and I next acknowledge duly
manhood taken by the Son.

2. And I trust and hope most fully
in that Manhood crucified;
and each thought and deed unruly
do to death, as he has died.

3. Simply to his grace and wholly
light and life and strength belong,
and I love supremely, solely,
him the holy, him the strong.

4. And I hold in veneration,
for the love of him alone,
holy Church as his creation,
and her teachings are his own.

5. Adoration aye be given,
with and through the angelic host,
to the God of earth and heaven,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.


Hymn A&M 187 O Love, how deep, how broad, how high


1. O Love, how deep, how broad, how high,
it fills the heart with ecstasy,
that God, the Son of God, should take
our mortal form for mortals’ sake!

2. He sent no angel to our race
of higher or of lower place,
but wore the robe of human frame
himself, and to this lost world came.

3. For us baptized, for us he bore
his holy fast and hungered sore,
for us temptation sharp he knew;
for us the tempter overthrew.

4. For us to wicked men betrayed,
scourged, mocked, in purple robe arrayed,
he bore the shameful cross and death,
for us at length gave up his breath.

5. For us he rose from death again;
for us he went on high to reign;
for us he sent his Spirit here,
to guide, to strengthen and to cheer.

6. To him whose boundless love has won
salvation for us through his Son,
to God the Father, glory be
both now and through eternity.


Hymn A&M 188 Jesus! the very thought is sweet


1. Jesus! the very thought is sweet;
in that dear name all heart-joys meet;
but O, than honey sweeter far
the glimpses of his presence are.

2. No word is sung more sweet than this,
no sound is heard more full of bliss,
no thought brings sweeter comfort nigh,
than Jesus, Son of God most high.

3. Jesus, the hope of souls forlorn,
how good to them for sin that mourn!
To them that seek the, O how kind!
But what art thou to them that find?

O Victor, glorious from the fight!
Sweetness that may not be expressed,
and altogether loveliest!

and with thine own true sweetness feed
our souls from sin and darkness freed.

with sweetness fills the breast;

the Savior of mankind.

O joy of all the meek,
to those who fall, how kind thou art:
how good to those who seek!

none but who love him know.

as thou our prize wilt be;
in thee be all our glory now,
and through eternity.

Thou Conqueror renowned,
Thou sweetness most ineffable,
In whom all joys are found!

7. When once thou visitest the heart,
Then truth begins to shine,
Then earthly vanities depart,
Then kindles love divine.

8. Thee, Jesu, may our voices bless,
Thee may we love alone,
And ever in our lives express
The image of thine own.

9. Abide with us, and let my light,
Shine, Lord, on every heart;
Dispel the darkness of our night,
And Joy to all impart.

10. Jesu. our love and joy, to thee,
The Virgin’s holy Son,
All might and praise and glory be
while endless ages run.

Hymn A&M 190 To the name of our salvation

1 To the name of our salvation
laud and honor let us pay,
which for many a generation
hid in God’s foreknowledge lay,
but with holy exultation
we may sing aloud to-day.

2 Jesus is the name we treasure,
name beyond what words can tell;
name of gladness, name of pleasure,
ear and heart delighting well;
name of sweetness passing measure,
saving us from sin and hell.

3 ‘Tis the name that whoso preacheth
speaks like music to the ear;
who in prayer this name beseecheth
sweetest comfort findeth near;
who its perfect wisdom reacheth
heavenly joy possesseth here

4 Jesus is the name exalted
over every other name;
in this name, whene’er assaulted,
we can put our foes to shame:
strength to them who else had halted,
eyes to blind, and feet to lame.

5 Therefore we in love adoring
this most blessed name revere,
holy Jesu, thee imploring
so to write it in us here,
that hereafter heavenward soaring
we may sing with angels there.

from the foes they captive make;
Jesus, by a nobler deed,
from the thousands, he hath freed.

unto mortals under heaven,
which can make the dead arise,
and exalt them to the skies.

3. That which Christ so hardly wrought,
that which he so dearly bought,
that salvation, brethren, say,
shall we madly cast away?

4. Rather gladly for that Name
bear the cross, endure the shame;
joyfully for him to die
is not death but victory.

5. Jesus, who dost condescend
to be called the sinner’s Friend,
hear us, as to thee we pray,
glorying in thy Name today.

6. Glory to the father be,
glory, holy son, to the,
glory to the holy ghost,
from the saints and angel host.

my Prophet, Priest and King,
my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
accept the praise I bring.

and cold my warmest thought;

I’ll praise thee as I ought.

with every fleeting breath;
and may the music of thy Name
refresh my soul in death!


Hymn A&M 193 Jesu, Lover of my soul

1. Jesu, Lover of my soul,
let me to thy bosom fly,
while the gathering waters roll,
while the tempest still is high:
hide me, O my Saviour, hide,
till the storm of life be past;
safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last.

hangs my helpless soul on thee;
leave, ah! 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 defenseless head
with the shadow of thy wing.

let the healing streams abound,
make and keep me pure within.

through terrestrial darkness
to celestrial day.

When shall I find my willing heart
all taken up by thee?
I thirst, I faint, I die to prove
the greatness of redeeming love,
the love of Christ to me.

its reaches are unsearchable;
the firstborn sons of light
desire in vain its depths to see;
they cannot reach the mystery
the length, and breadth, and height.

O that it now were shed abroad
in this poor stony heart!
For love I sigh, for love I pine;
this only portion, Lord, be mine,
be mine this better part.

with Mary at the Master’s feet;
be this my happy choice;
my only care, delight, and bliss,
my joy, my heaven on earth, be this
to hear the Bridegroom’s voice.

’tis life and health and peace.

new life the dead receive;
the mournful broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.

your loosened tongues employ;
ye blind, behold, your Savior come;
and leap, ye lame, for joy!

5. My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim
and spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of thy Name.

but yet in love He sought me,
and on his shoulder gently laid,
and home, rejoicing, brought me.

with thee, dear Lord, beside me;
thy rod and staff my comfort still,
thy cross before to guide me.

thy unction grace bestoweth;
and O what transport of delight
from thy pure chalice floweth!

thy goodness faileth never:
Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise
within thy house for ever.
