Ancient and Modern (Anglican Hymns) A&M 351- 400

 A & M 351: I heard the voice of Jesus say,

1. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto me and rest;
lay down, thou weary one lay down
thy head upon my breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was,
so weary, worn, and sad;
I found in him a resting place,
and he has made me glad.

2. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
the living water; thirsty one,
stoop down and drink, and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life-giving stream;
my thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
and now I live in him.

3. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s light;
look unto me, thy morn shall rise,
and all thy day be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
in him my Star, my Sun;
and in that light of life I’ll walk
till traveling days are done.

 A & M 352: Nearer, my God, to thee,
nearer to thee!

1. Nearer, my God, to thee,
nearer to thee!
E’en though it be a cross
that raiseth me,
still, all my song shall be,
nearer, my God, to thee.
nearer to thee!

2. Though like the wanderer,
the sun gone down,
darkness comes over me,
my rest a stone.
yet in my dreams, I’d be
nearer, my God to thee.
nearer to thee!

3. There let the way appear,
steps unto heaven;
all that thou sendest me,
in mercy given;
angels to beckon me
nearer, my God, to thee.
nearer to thee!

4. Then, with my waking thoughts
bright with thy praise,
out of my stony grief’s
Bethel, I’ll raise;
so by my woes to be
nearer, my God, to thee.
nearer to thee!


A & M 353:  I could not do without thee

1. I could not do without thee
O Saviour of the lost,
whose precious blood redeemed me
at such tremendous cost.
thy righteousness, thy pardon
thy precious blood, must be
my only hope and comfort,
my glory and my plea.

2. I could not do without thee,
I cannot stand alone,
I have no strength or goodness,
no wisdom of my own;
but thou, beloved Saviour,
art all in all to me,
and weakness will be power
if leaning hard on thee.

3. I could not do without thee,
O Jesus, Savior dear;
e’en when my eyes are holden,
I know that thou art near.
How dreary and how lonely
this changeful life would be,
without the sweet communion,
the secret rest with thee!

4. I could not do without thee,
for years are fleeting fast,
and soon in solemn loneness
the river must be passed;
but thou wilt never leave me,
and though the waves roll high,
I know thou wilt be near me,
and whisper, “It is I.”

singing to welcome the pilgrims of
the night!

you come”;

the music of the gospel leads us

long and dreary,
the day must dawn, and darksome
night be past;

will come at last.
Angels of Jesus, etc.

sing us sweet fragments of the songs
till morning’s joy shall end the night
of weeping,

cloudless love.
Angels of Jesus, etc.


Hymn A&M 355 O Jesus, thou art standing

1. O Jesus, thou art standing,
outside the fast closed door,
in lowly patience waiting
to pass the threshold o’er:
shame on us, Christian brothers,
his Name and sign who bear,
O shame, thrice shame upon us,
to keep him standing there!

2. O Jesus, thou art knocking;
and lo, that hand is scarred,
and thorns thy brow encircle,
and tears thy face have marred:
O love that passeth knowledge,
so patiently to wait!
O sin that hath no equal,
so fast to bar the gate!

3. O Jesus, thou art pleading
in accents meek and low,
“I died for you, my children,
and will you treat me so?”
O Lord, with shame and sorrow
we open now the door;
dear Savior, enter, enter,
and leave us nevermore.

Hymn A&M 356 Thy way, not mine, O Lord

1. Thy way, not mine, O Lord,
however dark it be;
lead me by thine own hand,
choose out the path for me.

2. Smooth let it be or rough,
it will be still the best;
winding or straight, it leads
right onward to thy rest.

3. I dare not choose my lot;
I would not, if I might;
choose thou for me, my God,
so I shall walk aright.

4. The kingdom that I seek
is thine; so let the way
that leads to it be thine,
else I must surely stray.

5. Take thou my cup, and it
with joy or sorrow fill,
as best to thee may seem;
choose thou my good and ill.

6. Choose thou for me my friends,
my sickness or my health;
choose thou my cares for me
my poverty or wealth.

7. Not mine, not mine the choice
in things or great or small;
be thou my Guide, my Strength
my wisdom and my all.


Hymn A&M 357 My God, my Father, while I stray
far from my home, on life’s rough way

1. My God, my Father, while I stray
far from my home, on life’s rough way,
O teach me from my heart to say,
Thy will be done!

2. Though dark my path, and sad my lot,
let me be still and murmur not,
Or breathe the prayer divinely taught,
Thy will be done!

3. What though in lonely grief I sigh
for friends beloved, no longer nigh,
submissive would I still reply,
Thy will be done!

4. If Thou shoulds’t call me to resign
what most I prize, it ne’er was mine:
I only yield thee what is thine;
thy will be done!

5. Let but my fainting heart be blest
with thy sweet Spirit for its guest,
my God, to thee I leave the rest;
thy will be done!

6. Renew my will from day to day;
blend it with thine, and take away
all that now makes it hard to say,
Thy will be done!

daily attend thee.
Ponder anew
what the Almighty can do,
if to the end he befriend thee.

4. Praise to the Lord, O let all that is
in me adore him!
All that hath life and breath, come
now with praises before him.
Let the amen
sound from his people again,
gladly for ay we adore him.


Hymn A&M 383 Now, my tongue, the mystery telling
of the glorious Body sing

1. Now, my tongue, the mystery telling
of the glorious Body sing,
and the Blood, all price excelling,
which the gentiles’ Lord and King,
in a Virgin’s womb once dwelling,
shed for this world’s ransoming.

2. Given for us, and condescending,
to be born for us below,
he, with men in converse blending,
dwelt the seed of truth to sow,
till he closed with wondrous ending
his most patient life of woe.

3. That last night, at supper lying,
‘mid the twelve, his chosen band,
Jesus, with the law complying,
keeps the feast its rites demand;
then, more precious food supplying,
gives himself with his own hand.

4. Word-made-flesh true bread he maketh
by his word his Flesh to be;
wine his Blood; which whoso taketh
must from carnal thoughts be free;
faith alone, though sight forsaketh,
shows true hearts the mystery.

5. Therefore we, before him bending,
this great Sacrament revere;
types and shadows have their ending,
for the newer rite is here;
faith, our outward sense befriending,
makes our inward vision clear.

6. Glory let us give, and blessing
to the Father, and the Son,
honor, might and praise addressing,
while eternal ages run;
ever too his love confessing,
who from both with both is one.

Hymn A&M 384 The heavenly Word proceeding forth

1. The heavenly Word proceeding forth,
yet leaving not the Father’s side,
accomplishing his work on earth
had reached at length life’s eventide.

2. By false disciple to be given
to foemen for his life athirst,
himself, the very Bread from heaven,
he gave to his disciples first.

3. He gave himself in either kind,
his precious Flesh, his precious Blood:
in love’s own fullness thus designed
of the whole man to be the Food.

4. By birth our fellow man was he,
our Food, when sitting at the board;
he died, our ransomer to be;
he ever reigns, our great reward.

5. O saving Victim, opening wide
the gate of heaven to man below:
our foes press on from every side;
thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.

6. All praise and thanks to thee ascend
for evermore, blest One in three;
O grant us life that shall not end
in our true native land with thee.


Hymn A&M 385 Thee we adore, O hidden Saviour, thee

1. Thee we adore, O hidden Saviour, thee,
who in thy sacrament dost deign to be;
both flesh and spirit at thy presence fail,
yet here thy presence we devoutly hail.

2. O blest memorial of our dying Lord,
who living bread to men doth here afford!
O may our souls for ever feed on thee,
and thou, O Christ, for ever precious be.

3. Fountain of goodness, Jesus, Lord and God,
cleanse us, unclean, with thy most cleansing blood;
increase our faith and love, that we may know
the hope and peace which from thy presence flow.

4. O Christ, whom now beneath a veil we see,
may what we thirst for soon our portion be,
to gaze on thee unveiled, and see thy face,
the vision of thy glory and thy grace.

Hymn A&M 386 Draw nigh and take the Body of
the Lord

1. Draw nigh and take the Body of
the Lord,
and drink the holy Blood for you out-

2. Saved by that Body and that holy
with souls refreshed, we render thanks
to God.

3. Salvation’s Giver, Christ, the only Son,
by his dear Cross and Blood the victory won.

4. Offered was he for greatest and for least,
himself the Victim, and himself the Priest.

5. Victims were offered by the law of old,
which in a type this heavenly mystery told.

6. He, lord of life, and saviour of our race,
hath given to his saints a wondrous grace.

7. Approach ye then with faithful hearts sincere,
and take the safeguard of salvation here.

8. He that in this world rules his saints and shields,
to all believers life eternal yields.

9. He feeds the hungry with the bread of heaven,
and living streams to those who thirst are given.

10. Alpha and Omega, to whom shall bow
all nations at the Doom, is with us now.


Hymn A&M 387 Jesus, thou joy of loving hearts!

1. Jesus, thou joy of loving hearts!
Thou Fount of life, thou Light of men!
From the best bliss that earth imparts
we turn unfilled to thee again.

2. Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood;
thou savest those that on thee call;
to them that seek thee thou art good;
to them that find thee All in all.

3. We taste thee, O thou living Bread,
and long to feast upon thee still;
we drink of thee, the fountainhead,
and thirst our souls from thee to fill.

4. Our restless spirits yearn for thee,
where’er our changeful lot is cast;
glad, when thy gracious smile we see,
blest, when our faith can hold thee fast.

5. O Jesus, ever with us stay;
make all our moments calm and bright;
chase the dark night of sin away,
shed o’er the world thy holy light.


Hymn A&M 388 O LORD Jesus, 1 adore thee
For the bread of worth untold


1. O LORD Jesus, 1 adore thee
For the bread of worth untold
Freely given in thy Communion,
Wonderful a thousandfold,
Given today in loving bounty
More than my poor heart can hold.

2. Make thou of my soul an orchard
Quickened Into fruitfulness;
Come, 0 come, life-giving Manna,
Making glad my wilderness:
Sweeter tar than any sweetness
Tongue can taste, or words express.

3. Ah, Lord Jesus, go not from me,
Stay, ah, stay with me, my Lord:
Make me shrink from whatsoever,
Will not with thy name accord;
Act through me in every action,
Speak through me in every word.

4. Would that I could keep thee always
In mine inmost heart to be,
Thou and only thou suggesting
Every thought and wish in me;
All my soul, with singing, offered
For a sacrifice to thee.


Hymn A&M 389 O Food that weary pilgrims love

1. O Food that weary pilgrims love,
O Bread of angel-hosts above,
O Manna of the saints,
the hungry soul would feed on thee;
ne’er may the heart unsolaced be
which for thy sweetness faints.

2. O font of love, O cleansing tide,
which from the Savior’s pierced side
and sacred heart dost flow,
be ours to drink of thy pure rill,
which only can our spirits fill,
and all our need bestow.

3. Lord Jesus, whom, by power divine
now hidden ‘neath the outward sign,
we worship and adore,
grant, when the veil away is rolled,
with open face we may behold
thyself for evermore.


Hymn A&M 390 Let all mortal flesh keep silence

1. Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
and with fear and trembling stand;
ponder nothing earthly minded,
for with blessing in his hand
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
our full homage to demand.

2. King of kings, yet born of Mary,
as of old on earth he stood,
Lord of lords in human vesture,
in the Body and the Blood
he will give to all the faithful
his own self for heavenly food.

3. Rank on rank the host of heaven
spreads its vanguard on the way,
as the Light of Light descendeth
from the realms of endless day,
that the powers of hell may vanish
as the darkness clears away.

4. At his feet the six-winged seraph;
cherubim with sleepless eye,
veil their faces to the Presence,
as with ceaseless voice they cry,
“Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, Lord Most High!”


Hymn A&M 391 HERE, while the cherubim within
the veil

the veil
Adore the blest, life-giving Trinity,
We, in earth’s worship echoing their
Hymn the thrice-Holy in their

That we may welcome him who
draweth nigh,
The King or Glory entering his
Girt by the hidden armies of the
Alleluia! Alleluia! Allelula!


Hymn A&M 392 Not a thought of earthly things!

1. Not a thought of earthly things!
Every head in awe be bended:
Christ out God, the King of kings,
comes by angel troops attended.

2. Forth he comes, a Victim he
for the wide world’s need availing,
and his people’s food to be,
with himself their souls regaling.

3. Cherubim with watchful eyes,
Seraphim their brows concealing,
Powers and Principalities,
cry aloud, like thunder pealing,


Hymn A&M 393 Deck thyself, my soul, with gladness

1. Deck thyself, my soul, with gladness,
leave the gloomy haunts of sadness,
come into the daylight’s splendor,
there with joy thy praises render
unto him whose grace unbounded
hath this wondrous banquet founded;
high o’er all the heavens he reigneth,
yet to dwell with thee he deigneth.

2. Now I sink before thee lowly,
filled with joy most deep and holy,
as with trembling awe and wonder
on thy mighty acts I ponder;
how, by mystery surrounded,
depths no man hath ever sounded,
none may dare to pierce unbidden
secrets that with thee are hidden.

3. Sun, who all my life dost brighten;
Light, who dost my soul enlighten;
Joy, the sweetest man e’er knoweth;
Fount, whence all my being floweth:
at thy feet I cry, my Maker,
let me a fit partaker
of this blessed food from heaven,
for our good, thy glory, given.

4. Jesus, Bread of life, I pray thee,
let me gladly here obey thee;
never to my hurt invited,
be thy love with love requited;
from this banquet let me measure,
Lord, how vast and deep its treasure;
through the gifts thou here dost give me,
as thy guest in heaven receive me.

who hast a table spread,
furnished with mystic wine
and everlasting bread,
preserve the life thyself hast given,
and feed and train us up for heaven.

till all thy life we gain,
and all thy fullness prove,
and, strengthened by thy perfect grace,
behold without a veil thy face.

Hymn A&M 395 O thou, before the world began

1. O thou, before the world began,
ordained a sacrifice for man,
and by the eternal Spirit made
an offering in the sinner’s stead;
our everlasting Priest art thou,
pleading thy death for sinners now.

2. Thy offering still continues new
before the righteous Father’s view;
thyself the Lamb forever slain;
thy priesthood doth unchanged remain;
thy years, O God, can never fail,
nor thy blest work within the veil.

3. O that our faith may never move,
but stand unshaken as thy love,
sure evidence of things unseen;
now let it pass the years between
and view thee bleeding on the tree:
my Lord, my God, who dies for me.


Hymn A&M 396 My God, and is thy table spread

1. My God, and is thy table spread,
and doth thy cup with love o’erflow?
Thither be all thy children led,
and let them thy sweetness know.

2. Hail, sacred feast, which Jesus makes,
rich banquet of his Flesh and Blood!
Thrice happy he who here partakes
that sacred stream, that heavenly food.

3. Why are its bounties all in vain
before unwilling hearts displayed?
Was not for them the Victim slain?
Are they forbid the children’s bread?

4. O let thy table honored be,
and furnished well with joyful guests;
and may each soul salvation see
that here its sacred pledges tastes.

Ancient and Modern (Anglican Hymns) A&M 351- 400

A & M 397 And now, O Father, mindful of the love

1. And now, O Father, mindful of the love
that bought us, once for all, on Calvary’s Tree,
and having with us him that pleads above,
we here present, we here spread forth to thee
that only Offering perfect in thine eyes,
the one, true, pure, immortal Sacrifice.

2. Look, Father, look on his anointed face,
and only look on us as found in him;
look not on our misusings of thy grace,
our prayer so languid, and our faith so dim:
for lo, between our sins and their reward
we set the Passion of thy Son our Lord.

3. And then for those, our dearest and our best,
by this prevailing Presence we appeal:
O fold them closer to thy mercy’s breast,
O do thine utmost for their souls’ true weal;
from tainting mischief keep them white and clear,
and crown thy gifts with strength to persevere.

4. And so we come: O draw us to thy feet,
most patient Savior, who canst love us still;
and by this food, so aweful and so sweet,
deliver us from every touch of ill:
in thine own service make us glad and free,
and grant us never more to part with thee.


Hymn A&M 398 Once, only once, and once for all

1. Once, only once, and once for all,
his precious life he gave;
before the cross in faith we fall,
and own it strong to save.

2. “One offering, single and complete,”
with lips and hearts we say;
but what he never can repeat
he shows forth day by day.

3. For as the priest of Aaron’s line
within the holiest stood,
and sprinkled all the mercy shrine
with sacrificial blood;

4. So he, who once atonement wrought,
our Priest of endless power,
presents himself for those he bought
in that dark noontide hour.

5. His manhood pleads where now it lives
on heaven’s eternal throne,
and where in mystic rite he gives
its presence to his own.

6. And so we show thy death, O Lord,
till thou again appear,
and feel, when we approach thy board,
we have an altar here.

7. All glory to the Father be,
all glory to the Son,
all glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
while endless ages run.

Hymn A&M 399 Alleluia! sing to Jesus!

1. Alleluia! sing to Jesus!
His the scepter, his the throne.
Alleluia! His the triumph,
his the victory alone.
Hark! the songs of peaceful Sion
thunder like a mighty flood.
Jesus out of every nation
hath redeemed us by his blood.

2. Alleluia! not as orphans
are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! He is near us,
faith believes, nor questions how;
Though the cloud from sight received him
when the forty days were o’er
shall our hearts forget his promise,
‘I am with you evermore’?

3. Alleluia! bread of heaven,
here on earth our food and stay!
Alleluia! here the sinful
flee to thee from day to day.
Intercessor, Friend of sinners,
earth’s Redeemer, plead for me.
Where the songs of all the sinless
sweep across the crystal sea.

4. Alleluia! King eternal,
thee the Lord of lords we own;
Alleluia! born of Mary,
earth thy footstool,
heaven thy throne.
Thou within the veil hast entered,
robed in flesh, our great High Priest.
Thou on earth both Priest and Victim
in the Eucharistic Feast.


Hymn A&M 400 Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendor

1. Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendor,
first-begotten from the dead.
Thou alone, our strong defender,
liftest up thy people’s head.
Jesu, true and living bread!

2. Here our humblest homage pay we,
here in loving reverence bow;
here for faith’s discernment pray we,
lest we fail to know thee now.
Thou art here, we ask not how.

3. Though the lowliest form doth veil thee
as of old in Bethlehem,
here as there thine angels hail thee,
branch and flower of Jesse’s stem.
We in worship join with them.

4. Paschal Lamb, thine offering, finished
once for all when thou was slain,
in its fullness undiminished
shall for evermore remain.
Cleansing souls from every stain.

5. Life-imparting heavenly Manna,
stricken Rock with streaming side,
heaven and earth with loud hosanna
worship thee, the Lamb who died.
Risen, ascended, glorified!
