Gather Around the Christmas Tree

Author: John Henry Hopkins, Jr. Appears in 30 hymnals Refrain First Line: Hosanna, hosanna Lyrics: 1. Gather around the Christmas tree! Gather around the Christmas tree! Evergreen have its branches been, It is king of all the woodland scene; For Christ our King is born today! His reign shall never pass away. Refrain Hosanna, hosanna, Hosanna in the highest! 2. Gather around the Christmas tree! Gather around the Christmas tree! Once the pride of the mountainside, Now cut down to grace our Christmastide; For Christ from Heav’n to earth came down, To gain, through death, a nobler crown. [Refrain] 3. Gather around the Christmas tree! Gather around the Christmas tree! Every bough bears a burden now— They are gifts of love for us, we trow; For Christ is born, His love to show, And give good gifts to men below. [Refrain] 4. Farewell to thee, O Christmas tree! Farewell to thee, O Christmas tree! Twelve months o’er, we shall meet once more, Merry welcome singing, as of yore, For Christ now reigns, our Savior dear, And gives us Christmas every year!

Ascribe to the Lord Our God

Author: Susan H. Peterson Appears in 1 hymnal Lyrics: 1. Ascribe to the Lord our God, Ascribe to Him glory, might. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name And worship Him aright. Come worship in the splendor of holiness. 2. The voice of the Lord is heard; The Lord thunders o’er the sea. The voice of the Lord is powerful and strong; God speaks with majesty. We hear Your voice and worship in holiness. 3. God’s voice breaks the cedars tall; He strips all the forests bare. The mountains He shakes; they skip just like a calf. His glory all declare. We hear Your voice and worship in holiness. 4. The voice of the Lord does strike With flashes of lightning bright. The voice of the Lord does shake the desert sands; The deer give birth in fright. We hear Your voice and worship in holiness. 5. The Lord o’er the flood did reign; As King, He’s fore’er enthroned. The Lord gives His people strength for every day; With peace, they’re blessed and crowned. You’ve blessed us, Lord; we worship in holiness. Used With Tune: MARION

Ah, What Can I Do?

Author: John Newton Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: Ah, what can I do, or where be secure? Lyrics: 1. Ah, what can I do, or where be secure? If justice pursue, what heart can endure? When God speaks in thunder and makes Himself known, The heart breaks asunder though hard as a stone. 2. With terror I read my sins’ heavy score, The numbers exceed the sands on the shore; Guilt makes me unable to stand or to flee, So Cain murdered Abel, and trembled like me. 3. Each sin, like his blood, with terrible cry, Calls loudly on God to strike from on high: Nor can my repentance, extorted by fear, Reverse the just sentence; ’tis just, though severe. 4. The case is too plain, I have my own choice; Again, and again I slighted His voice; His warnings neglected, His patience abused, His Gospel rejected, His mercy refused. 5. And must I then go, forever to dwell In torments and woe with devils in hell? Oh where is the Savior I scorned in times past? His word in my favor would save me at last. 6. Lord Jesus, on Thee I venture to call, Oh look upon me, the vilest of all! For whom didst Thou languish and bleed on the tree? Oh pity my anguish, and say, ’Twas for thee. 7. A case such as mine will honor Thy power; All hell will repine, all Heav’n will adore; If in condemnation strict justice takes place, It shines in salvation more glorious through grace.

The Battle of Calvary

Author: Neil Barham Meter: D Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: Great Apollyon, grim and awful Lyrics: 1. Great Apollyon, grim and awful, steeped in gore and stained in blood— Death, with all his fearsome forces, has besieged the Son of God. Satan, clothed with evil armor, darkly gleaming, proud and cold— Merciless, he joins the battle, armed and clad with pow’r untold. 2. Bowed beneath demonic onslaughts, Jesus fights His awesome duel! Pain devours its Holy Victim, searing, savage, raging, cruel! Eager waits the Mouth of Sheol, huge, insatiable, and strong! Maw agape, the Grave yearns after Holy Flesh—but not for long. 3. Writhing under Law’s most fearsome curse, ruined, lost, polluted, wrecked; Languishing in Satan’s prison lie the souls of God’s elect. At the Cross—desire of Hell! —Christ gives up that final Breath: Now, at last, the choicest Captive tastes the mortal sting of Death! 4. Darkness falls; the seething smoke of Hell cloaks the battlefield from view. Down the head of God has fallen: Law and Wrath receive their due! Satan smiles in seeming triumph, reaching out, his Prize to take. Three brief days all Hell rejoices— then the stone begins to shake! 5. Now the night of wrong is ended; now the Grave has lost its Prize! Now the Ris’n One breaks the back of Sin: There! Behold! See how Death dies! Resurrection Light now scatters Satan’s armies from the field. Christ has drawn the fearful sting of Death: Sheol and Abaddon yield! 6. At His Glance the mighty prison built by Law and Sin falls down! Countless in their thousand thousands, all His Ransomed praise His Crown! Heav’n and Hell’s astonished spirits in their joy and rage all stare At the Victor of the Cross who won His greatest Battle there. Used With Tune: BLAENHAFREN

Give Me the Wings of Faith

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 512 hymnals First Line: Give me the wings of faith to rise Lyrics: 1. Give me the wings of faith to rise Within the veil, and see The saints above, how great their joys, How bright their glories be. 2. Once they were mourning here below, And wet their couch with tears: They wrestled hard, as we do now, With sins, and doubts, and fears. 3. I ask them whence their victory came: They, with united breath, Ascribe their conquest to the Lamb, Their triumph to His death. 4. They marked the footsteps that He trod, His zeal inspired their breast; And following their incarnate God, Possess the promised rest. 5. Our glorious Leader claims our praise For His own pattern giv’n; While the long cloud of witnesses Show the same path to Heav’n. Another arrangement, by Walter Kittredge (1834-1905), adds this refrain: Many are the friends who are waiting today, Happy on the golden strand, Many are the voices calling us away, To join their glorious band. Calling us away, calling us away, Calling to the better land, Calling us away, calling us away, Calling to the better land.

How Happy Are They

Author: Charles Wesley Meter: 6.6.9 D Appears in 703 hymnals Lyrics: 1. How happy are they Who the Savior obey, And have laid up their treasure above! Tongue can never express The sweet comfort and peace Of a soul in its earliest love. 2. That sweet comfort was mine, When the Father divine I first found in the blood of the Lamb; When my heart first believed, What a joy I received, What heaven in Jesus’ name! 3. ’Twas a heaven below My redeemer to know, And the angels could do nothing more, Than to fall at His feet, And the story repeat, And the Lover of sinners adore. 4. Jesus all the day long Was my joy and my song: O that all His salvation might see! He hath loved me, I cried, He hath suffered and died, To redeem a poor rebel like me. 5. O the rapturous height Of that holy delight Which I felt in the life giving blood! By my Savior possessed, I was perfect blest, As if filled with the fullness of God.

Rise, My Soul, and Stretch Thy Wings

Author: Robert Seagrave Meter: Appears in 807 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wings, thy better portion trace; Rise from transitory things, toward Heaven, thy native place: Sun and moon and stars decay, time shall soon this earth remove; Rise, my soul, and haste away to seats prepared above. 2. Rivers to the ocean run, nor stay in all their course; Fire ascending seeks the sun; both speed them to their source: So my soul, that’s born of God, pants to view His glorious face, Upward tends to His abode, to rest in His embrace. 3. Fly me riches, fly me cares, whilst I that coast explore; Flattering world, with all thy snares, solicit me no more. Pilgrims fix not here their home; strangers tarry but a night; When the last dear morn is come, they’ll rise to joyful light. 4. Cease, ye pilgrims, cease to mourn, press onward to the prize; Soon thy Savior will return, triumphant in the skies: Yet a season, and you know happy entrance will be given All our sorrows left below, and earth exchanged for Heaven.
