and stand entire at last.

raise your banner in the sky!
Let it float there wide unfurled!
Bear it onward! lift it high!

strangers to the living Word,

there the saving sign display!

tell of realms where sorrows cease!
To the outcast and forlorn
speak of mercy and of peace!

are the kingdom of the Lord!

for more than death or life.

sworn warriors of Christ’s host,
where hallowed footsteps never trod
take your appointed post.

strong in your Captain’s strength
go to the conquest of all lands;
all must be his at length.

you shall rejoice to lay,
and lay yourselves, as trophies meet,
in his great judgment day.

and sing with you this song.

the cross hath won the field!

ye soldiers of the cross;
lift high his royal banner,
it must not suffer loss:
from victory unto victory
his army shall he lead,
till every foe is vanquished
and Christ is Lord indeed.

2. Stand up, stand up for Jesus!
the solemn watchword hear;
if while ye sleep he suffers,
away with shame and fear,
where’er ye meet with evil,
within you or without,
charge for the God of battles,
and put the foe to rout.

3. Stand up, stand up, for Jesus;
the trumpet call obey;
forth to the mighty conflict
in this his glorious day:
ye that are men now serve him
against unnumbered foes;
let courage rise with danger,
and strength to strength oppose.

4. Stand up, stand up, for Jesus;
stand in his strength alone;
the arm of flesh will fail you,
ye dare not trust your own:
put on the Gospel armour,
each place put on with prayer,
when duty calls, or danger,
be never wanting there.

5. Stand up, stand up, for Jesus;
the strife will not be long:
this day, the noise of battle;
the next, the victor’s song.
To him that overcometh
a crown of life shall be;
he with the King of glory
shall reign eternally.

Thy word above the storm rose high,
“Peace, be still.”

say, lest we sink to rise no more,

the shame without the tear!

and let that sweet look win.

still walk beside us on the shore,
give hands to work, and eyes to weep,
and hearts to love thee more.

in all my works thy presence find,
and prove thy good and perfect will.

3. Thee may I set at my right hand,
whose eyes mine inmost substance see,
and labor on at thy command,
and offer all my works to thee.

4. Give me to bear thy easy yoke,
and every moment watch and pray,
and still to things eternal look,
and hasten to thy glorious day.

5. For thee delightfully employ
whate’er thy bounteous grace hath given;
and run my course with even joy,
and closely walk with thee to heaven.



Hymn A&M 337 Teach me, my God and King

1. Teach me, my God and King,
in all things thee to see,
and what I do in anything
to do it as for thee.

2. A man that looks on glass,
on it may stay his eye;
or if he pleaseth, through it pass,
and then the heaven espy.

3. All may of thee partake;
nothing can be so mean,
which with this tincture, “for thy sake,”
will not grow bright and clean.

4. A servant with this clause
makes drudgery divine:
who sweeps a room, as for thy laws,
makes that and the action fine.

5. This is the famous stone
that turneth all to gold;
for that which God doth touch and own
cannot for less be told.

 

Hymn A&M 338 Fair waved the golden corn
in Canaan’s pleasant land

1. Fair waved the golden corn
in Canaan’s pleasant land,
when full of joy, some shining morn,
went forth the reaper-band.

2. To God so good and great
their cheerful thanks they pour;
then carry to his temple-gate
the choicest of their store.

3. Like Israel, Lord, we give
our earliest fruits to thee,
and pray that, long as we shall live,
we may thy children be.

4. Thine is our youthful prime,
and life and all its powers;
be with us in our morning time,
and bless our evening hours.

5. In wisdom let us grow,
as years and strength are given,
that we may serve thy Church below,
and join thy saints in heaven.



Hymn A&M 339 Come, labour on

1. Come, labour on.
Who dares stand idle on the harvest plain,
while all around us waves the golden grain?
And to each servant does the Master say,
“Go work today.”

2. Come, labour on.
Away with gloomy doubts and faithless fear!
No arm so weak but may do service here:
by feeblest agents may our God fulfill
his righteous will.

3. Come, labour on.
No time for rest, till glows the western sky,
till the long shadows o’er our pathway lie,
and a glad sound comes with the setting sun.
“Servants, well done.”

4. Come, labour on.
The toil is pleasant, the reward is sure,
blessed are those who to the end endure;
how full their joy, how deep their rest shall be,
O Lord, with thee.

 

Hymn A&M 340 O GOD, before whose altar
The stars like tapers burn

1. O GOD, before whose altar
The stars like tapers burn,
At whose inscrutable decree
The planets wheel and turn,
Though earth and sea and heaven
unite thy praise to sing,
Man in his weakness yet may give
A worthier offering.

2. Those who give up life‘s bounty
To serve a race to be,
Whose bones lie white along the Trail
Which leads the world to thee:
Those who when fears beset them
Stand fast and fight and die,
Their unconsidered lives go up
Like incense to the sky.

3. All those oppressed or lonely
Or long at strife with pain,
Who face the darkness undismayed
And turn their loss to gain,
Those who with love and meekness
Outlast the years of wrong,
Their silent courage pleads to heaven
More eloquent than song.

4. O Lord, be ours the glory
Beyond all earthly fame,
Like those to conquer for thy sake
Despair and doubt and shame:
Till through a world made noble,
Through lands from sin set free,
The armies of the living God
Shall match to victory.



Hymn A&M 341 Lift up your hearts!” We lift them, Lord, to thee

1. “Lift up your hearts!” We lift them, Lord, to thee;
here at thy feet none other may we see;
“Lift up your hearts!” E’en so, with one accord,
We lift them up, we lift them to the Lord.

2. Above the level of the former years,
the mire of sin, the weight of guilty fears,
the mist of doubt, the blight of love’s decay,
O Lord of Light, lift all our hearts today!

3. Above the swamps of subterfuge and shame,
the deeds, the thoughts, that honour may not name,
the halting tongue that dares not tell the whole,
O lord of truth, lift every Christian soul!

4. Lift every gift that thou thyself hast given;
low lies the best till lifted up to heaven;
low lie the bounding heart, the teeming brain,
till, sent from God, they mount to God again.

5. Then, as the trumpet call, in after years,
“Lift up your hearts!” rings pealing in our ears,
still shall those hearts respond, with full accord
“We lift them up, we lift them to the Lord!”

 

Hymn A&M 342 Lord, it belongs not to my care
whether I die or live

1. Lord, it belongs not to my care
whether I die or live;
to love and serve thee is my share,
and this thy grace must give.

2. Christ leads me through no darker rooms
than he went through before;
he that unto God’s kingdom comes
must enter by this door.

3. Come, Lord, when grace hath made me meet
thy blessed face to see:
for if thy work on earth be sweet,
what will thy glory be!

4. Then I shall end my sad complaints
and weary sinful days,
and join with the triumphant saints
that sing my Savior’s praise.

5. My knowledge of that life is small,
the eye of faith is dim;
but ’tis enough that Christ knows all,
and I shall be with him.



Hymn A&M 343 Come, O thou Traveler unknown

1. Come, O thou Traveler unknown,
whom still I hold, but cannot see;
my company before is gone,
and I am left alone with thee,
with thee all night I mean to stay,
and wrestle till the break of day.

2. I need not tell thee who I am,
my misery or sin declare;
thyself hast called me by my name,
look on thy hands, and read it there.
But who, I ask thee, who art thou?
Tell me thy name, and tell me now.

3. In vain thou strugglest to get free;
i never will unloose my hold,
art thou the man that died for me?
the secret of thy love unfold:
wrestlingdew, i will not let go,
till i thy name, thy nature know.

4. Yield to me now, for I am weak
but confident in self-despair;
speak to my heart, in blessings speak,
be conquered by my instant prayer.
Speak, or thou never hence shalt move,
and tell me, if thy name is Love.

5. ‘Tis Love, ’tis Love! Thou diedst for me!
I hear thy whisper in my heart:
the morning breaks, the shadows flee.
Pure universal Love thou art;
to me, to all, thy mercies move,
thy nature and thy name is Love.

 

Hymn A&M 344 Hark, my soul, it is the Lord!
‘Tis thy Savior, hear his Word

1. Hark, my soul, it is the Lord!
‘Tis thy Savior, hear his Word;
Jesus speaks, and speaks to thee,
“Say, poor, sinner, lov’st thou me?”

2. “I delivered thee when bound,
and, when wounded, healed thy wound;
sought thee wandering, set thee right,
turned thy darkness into light.

3. “Can a woman’s tender care
cease toward the child she bare?
Yes, she may forgetful be,
yet will I remember thee.

4. “Mine is an unchanging love,
higher than the heights above,
deeper than the depths beneath,
free and faithful, strong as death.

5. “Thou shalt see my glory soon,
when the work of grace is done;
partner of my throne shalt be:
say, poor sinner, lov’st thou me?”

6. Lord, it is my chief complaint
that my love is weak and faint;
yet I love thee, and adore:
O for grace to love thee more!



Hymn A&M 345 Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat

1. Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat,
where Jesus answers prayer;
there humbly fall before his feet,
for none can perish there.

2. Thy promise is my only plea,
with this I venture nigh:
thou callest burdened souls to thee,
and such, O Lord, am I.

3. Bowed down beneath a load of sin,
by Satan sorely pressed,
by war without and fears within,
I come to thee for rest.

4. Be thou my shield and hiding-place,
that, sheltered near thy side,
I may my fierce accuser face,
and tell him thou hast died.

5. O wondrous love, to bleed and die,
to bear the Cross and shame,
that guilty sinners, such as I,
might plead thy gracious Name!

 

Hymn A&M 346 Forever with the Lord!”
Amen; so let it be

1. “Forever with the Lord!”
Amen; so let it be;
life from the dead is in that word,
’tis immortality.
Here in the body pent,
absent from him I roam,
yet nightly pitch my moving tent
a day’s march nearer home.

2. My Father’s house on high,
home of the soul, how near!
At times to faith’s foreseeing eye
thy golden gates appear!
Ah! then my spirit faints,
to reach the land I love,
the bright inheritance of saints,
Jerusalem above.

3. “For ever with the Lord!”
Father, if ’tis thy will,
the promise of that faithful word
even here to me fulfill.
Be thou at my right hand,
then can I never fail;
uphold thou me, and I shall stand,
fight, and I must prevail.

4. So when my latest breath
shall rend the veil in twain,
by death, I shall escape from death,
and life eternal gain.
Knowing as I am known,
how shall I love that word,
and oft repeat before the throne,
“Forever with the Lord!”



 

Ancient and Modern (Anglican Hymns) A&M 301- 350

 

Hymn A&M 347 Jesus, these eyes have never seen
that radiant form of thine

1. Jesus, these eyes have never seen
that radiant form of thine;
the veil of sense hangs dark between
thy blessed face and mine.

2. I see thee not, I hear thee not,
yet art thou oft with me;
and earth hath ne’er so dear a spot
as where I meet with thee.

3. Yet, though I have not see, and still
must rest in faith alone;
I love thee, dearest Lord, and will,
unseen but not unknown.

4. When death these mortal eyes shall seal,
and still this throbbing heart,
the rending veil shall thee reveal
all glorious as thou art.



Hymn A&M 348 Art thou weary, art thou languid

1. Art thou weary, art thou languid,
art thou sore distressed?
“Come to Me,” saith One, “and coming,
be at rest. ”

2. Hath he marks to lead me to him,
if he be my guide?
In his feet and hands are wound prints
and his side.

3. Hath he diadem, as monarch,
that his brow adorns?
Yes, a crown in very surety,
but of thorns.

4. If I find him, if I follow,
what his guerdon here?
Many a sorrow, many a labor,
many a tear.

5. If I still hold closely to him,
what hath he at last?
Sorrow vanquished, labor ended,
Jordan passed.

6. If I ask him to receive me,
will he say me nay?
Not till earth and not till heaven
pass away.

7. Finding, following, keeping, struggling,
is He sure to bless?
Angels, martyrs, prophets, virgins,
answer, yes!



Hymn A&M 349 Just as I am, without one plea

1. Just as I am, without one plea,
but that thy blood was shed for me,
and that thou bidst me come to thee,
O Lamb of God, I come.

2. Just as I am, though tossed about
with many a conflict, many a doubt;
fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come.

3. Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
sight, riches, healing of the mind,
yea, all I need, in thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come.

4. Just as I am, thou wilt receive;
wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve,
because thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come.

5. Just as I am, thy love unknown
has broken every barrier down;
now to be thine, yea, thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come.

6. Just as I am, of that free love
the breadth, length, depth, and height to prove,
here for a season, then above:
O Lamb of God, I come.



Hymn A&M 350 Come unto me, ye weary,

1. “Come unto me, ye weary,
and I will give you rest.”
O blessed voice of Jesus,
which comes to hearts opprest!
It tells of benediction,
of pardon, grace and peace,
of joy that hath no ending,
of love which cannot cease.

2. “Come unto me, ye wanderers,
and I will give you light.”
O loving voice of Jesus,
which comes to cheer the night!
our hearts are filled with sadness,
and we had lost our way;
but he has brought us gladness
and songs the break of day.

3. “Come unto me, ye fainting,
and I will give you life.”
O cheering voice of Jesus,
which comes to aid our strife!
The foe is stern and eager,
the fight is fierce and long;
but thou hast made us mighty
and stronger than the strong.

4. “And whosoever cometh
I will not cast him out.”
O welcome voice of Jesus,
which drives away our doubt,
which calls us very sinners,
unworthy though we be,
of love so free and boundless,
to come, dear Lord, to thee.
