1. Jesus, thy mercies are untold
through each returning day;
thy love exceeds a thousandfold
whatever we can say;

for us thy precious Blood;
that love whereby the saints have gained
the vision of their God;

3. ’tis thou hast loved us from the womb,
pure source of all our bliss,
our only hope of life to come,
our happiness in this;

4. Lord, grant us, while on earth we stay,
thy love to feel and know;
and, when from hence we pass away,
to us thy glory show.

pour down the riches of thy grace;
Jesus, my Lord, I thee adore,
O make me love thee more and more.

how can I love thee as I ought?
And how extol thy matchless fame,
the glorious beauty of thy Name?
Jesus, my Lord, etc.

that thou hast dealt so lovingly?
How great the joy that thou hast brought,
so far exceeding hope or thought!

to thee my heart and soul belong;
all that I have or am is thine,
and thou, blest Savior, thou art mine.
Jesus, my Lord, etc.

Hymn A&M 203 O Love, who formedst me

1. O Love, who formedst me to wear
the image of thy Godhead here;
who soughtest me with tender care
through all my wanderings wild and drear:
O Love, I give myself to thee,
thine ever, only thine to be.

2. O Love, who ere life’s earliest dawn
on me thy choice hast gently laid;
O Love, who here as man wast born,
and wholly like to us wast made:
O Love, etc.

3. O Love, who once in time wast slain,
pierced through and through with bitter woe!
O Love, who wrestling thus didst gain
that we eternal joy might know:
O Love, etc.

4. O Love, who once shalt bid me rise
from out this dying life of ours;
O Love, whose hand o’er yonder skies
shall set me in the fadeless bowers:
O Love, etc.

Hymn A&M 204 Where high the heavenly temple

1. Where high the heavenly temple stands,
the house of God not made with hands,
a great High Priest our nature wears,
the Guardian of mankind appears.

2. He, who for men their surety stood,
and poured on earth his precious blood,
pursues in heaven his mighty plan,
the Savior and the Friend of man.

he bends on earth a brother’s eye;
partaker of the human name,
he knows the frailty of our frame.

4. In every pang that rends the heart
the Man of Sorrows had a part;
he sympathizes with our grief,
and to the sufferer sends relief.

let us make all our sorrows known;
and ask the aid of heavenly power
to help us in the evil hour.


Hymn A&M 205 Love divine, all loves excelling

1. Love divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, to earth, come down,
fix in us thy humble dwelling,
all thy faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, thou art all compassion,
pure, unbounded love thou art;
visit us with thy salvation,
enter every trembling heart.

2. Come, almighty to deliver,
let us all thy grace receive;
suddenly return, and never,
nevermore thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
serve thee as thy hosts above,
pray, and praise thee without ceasing,
glory in thy perfect love.

3. Finish then thy new creation;
pure and spotless let us be;
let us see thy great salvation
perfectly restored in thee:
changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven, we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before thee,
lost in wonder, love, and praise.


Hymn A&M 206 Jesus still lead on till our rest be worn

1. Jesus, still lead on,
till our rest be won,
and, although the way be cheerless,
we will follow calm and fearless,
guide us by Thy hand
to our fatherland.

if the foe be near,
let no faithless fears o’ertake us,
let not faith and hope forsake us,
for through many a foe
to our home, we go.

3. Jesus, still lead on,
till our rest be won;
heavenly Leader, still direct us,
still support, control, protect us,
till we safely stand
in our fatherland.

Hymn A&M 207 Son of God, eternal Saviour

1. Son of God, eternal Saviour,
Source of life and truth and grace,
Son of Man, whose birth incarnate
hallows all our human race,
thou, our Head, who, throned in glory,
for thine own dost ever plead,
fill us with thy love and pity,
heal our wrongs and help our needs.

2. As thou, Lord, hast lived for others
so may we for others live;
freely have thy gifts been granted,
freely may thy servants give.
Thine the gold and thine the silver,
thine the wealth of land and sea,
we but stewards of thy bounty,
held in solemn trust for thee.

3. Come, O Christ, and reign among us,
King of Love and Prince of Peace,
hush the storm of strife and passion,
bid its cruel discords cease;
by thy patient-years of toiling,
by thy silent hours of pain,
quench our fevered thirst of pleasure,
shame our selfish greed of gain.

Source of life and truth and grace,
Son of Man, whose birth incarnate
hallows all our human race,
thou who prayedst, thou who willest
that thy people should be one,
grant, O grant our hope’s fruition:
here on earth thy will be done.


Hymn A&M 208 Immortal love, forever full

1. Immortal love, forever full,

a never ebbing sea!

all other names above;

to bring the Lord Christ down;
In vain we search the lowest deeps,
for him no depths can drown.

a present help is he;
and faith still has its Olivet,
and love its Galilee.

5. The healing of his seamless dress
is by our beds of pain;
we touch him in life’s throng and press,
and we are whole again.

our lips of childhood frame,

are burdened with his Name.

thy saving name is given;
to turn aside from thee is hell,
to walk with thee is heaven.

to the bright world above,
break forth in rapturous strains of joy
in memory of thy love.

the air, the earth, the sea,
in unison with all our hearts,
and calls aloud for thee.

of grace and peace divine;
be thine the crown of glory now,
the palm of victory thine.

Hymn A&M 210 Not the labour of my hands

1. Rock of ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood
from thy riven side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure,
cleanse me from its guilt and power.

2. Not the labor of my hands
can fulfill thy law’s demands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.

3. Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to thy cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.

when my eyelids close in death,
when I soar through tracts unknown
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.

tempting snares about my way,
I am safe when I abide
in thy heart and wounded side.

tempt my soul to deeds of ill,

in thy heart and wounded side.

Jesus, cast me not from thee:
dying let me still abide
in thy heart and wounded side.


Hymn A&M 212 Behold the Lamb of God!

1. Behold the Lamb of God!
O thou for sinners slain,
let it not be in vain
that thou hast died:
thee for my Savior let me take,
thee–thee alone my refuge make,
thy pierced side.

2. Behold the Lamb of God!
All hail–Incarnate Word!
Thou everlasting Lord,–
Saviour most blest!
Fill us with love that never faints,
grant us with all thy blessed saints
eternal rest.

Worthy is he alone
to sit upon the throne
of God above;
one with the Ancient of all Days,
one with the Comforter in praise,
all Light and Love.

my salvation’s tower,
on the cross I view thee
calling sinners to thee.

at the sight amazing;

be thou e’er beside me;
in thy ways direct me,
‘neath thy wings protect me.

he died to make us good,

saved by his precious blood.

to pay the price of sin,
he only could unlock the gate
of heaven and let us in.

And we must love him too,
and trust in his redeeming blood,
and try his works to do.


Hymn A&M 215 Inscribed upon the cross we see

of him who died upon the cross;

in shining letters, God is love:

great David’s greater Son!
Hail, in the time, appointed,
his reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free,
to take away transgression,
and rule in equity.

2. He comes, with succour speedy,
to those who suffer wrong;
to help the poor and needy,
and bid the weak be strong;
to give them songs for sighing,
their darkness turn to light,
whose souls, condemned and dying,
were precious in his sight.

3. He shall come down like showers
upon the fruitful earth;
love, joy, and hope, like flowers,
spring in his path to birth;
before him, on the mountains,
shall peace the herald go;
and righteousness, in fountains,
from hill to valley flow.

the Ethiopian stranger
his glory come to see;
with offerings of devotion
ships from the isles shall meet,
to pour the wealth of ocean
in tribute at his feet.

and gold and incense bring;
all nations shall adore him,

and daily vows ascend,

dwell on his love with sweetest song;
and infant voices shall proclaim
their early blessings on his Name.

3. Blessings abound where’er he reigns:
the prisoner leaps to lose his chains,
the weary find eternal rest,
and all the sons of want are blest.

4. To him shall endless prayer be made,
and praises throng to crown his head;
his Name like incense shall rise
with every morning sacrifice.

5. Let every creature rise and bring
peculiar honors to our King;
angels descend with songs again,
and earth repeat the loud Amen.

through all the ages long:

through all eternity.

be thou, O Christ, the sinner’s stay,
though heaven and earth shall pass away.

and speaks of heaven.

Hymn A&M 233 Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost

taught by thee we covet most,

holy heavenly, love.

love is meek and thinks no wrong,
love than death itself more strong;
therefore, give us love.

melting in the light of day;
love will ever with us stay;
therefore, give us love.

hope be emptied in delight;
love in heaven will shine more bright;
therefore give us love.

5. Faith and hope and love we see,
joining hand in hand agree,
but the greatest of the three,
and the best, is love.

of thy gold and silver wing
shed on us, who to thee sing,

thy pure dominion own.

our hearts his love to feel.

if thou wilt bid them flow.

all graces come from thee;
grant us to know and serve aright
one God in Persons Three.

for none can guess its grace,
till he becomes the place
wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.

glows with thy fire divine.

so shall I never die;
but live with thee the perfect life
of thine eternity.

shower, O shower then, Lord, on me.

hearts and minds and hands and voices,
