Come, My Soul, Thy Suit Prepare

Author: John Newton Meter: 7.7.7.7 Appears in 709 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Come, my soul, thy suit prepare: Jesus loves to answer prayer; He Himself has bid thee pray, Therefore will not say thee nay; Therefore will not say thee nay. 2. Thou art coming to a King, Large petitions with thee bring; For His grace and power are such, None can ever ask too much; None can ever ask too much. 3. With my burden I begin: Lord, remove this load of sin; Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt, Set my conscience free from guilt; Set my conscience free from guilt. 4. Lord, I come to Thee for rest, Take possession of my breast; There Thy blood bought right maintain, And without a rival reign; And without a rival reign. 5. As the image in the glass Answers the beholder’s face; Thus unto my heart appear, Print Thine own resemblance there, Print Thine own resemblance there. 6. While I am a pilgrim here, Let Thy love my spirit cheer; As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend, Lead me to my journey’s end; Lead me to my journey’s end. 7. Show me what I have to do, Every hour my strength renew: Let me live a life of faith, Let me die Thy people’s death; Let me die Thy people’s death.

The Morning Light Is Breaking

Author: Samuel Francis Smith Appears in 1,171 hymnals First Line: The morning light is breaking, the darkness disappears Lyrics: 1. The morning light is breaking, the darkness disappears; The sons of earth are waking, to penitential tears; Each breeze that sweeps the ocean brings tidings from afar Of nations in commotion, prepared for Zion’s war. 2. Rich dews of grace come o’er us, in many a gentle shower, And brighter scenes before us, are opening every hour; Each cry to Heaven going, abundant answers brings, And heav’nly winds are blowing, with peace upon their wings. 3. See heathen nations bending before the God we love, And thousand hearts ascending in gratitude above: While sinners, now confessing, the Gospel call obey, And seek the Savior’s blessing, a nation in a day. 4. Blest river of salvation, pursue thy onward way; Flow thou to every nation, nor in thy riches stay: Stay not till all the lowly triumphant reach their home; Stay not till all the holy proclaim, The Lord is come.

The Battle of Calvary

Author: Neil Barham Meter: 8.7.8.7 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: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 514 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.

Gracious Lord, Remember David

Author: Anonymous Appears in 7 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Gracious Lord, remember David, How he made Thy house his care, How he vowed to seek no pleasure Till Thy house he should prepare. Lord, remember his devotion; Restless in his courts he trod Till he found a habitation Fit for Israel’s mighty God; Till he found a habitation Fit for Israel’s mighty God. 2. Far away God’s ark was resting, It is with His people now; We will go into His temple, At His footstool we will bow. With the ark, Thy might revealing, Enter, Lord, into Thy rest; Let Thy priests be clothed with justice, Let Thy joyful saints be blest; Let Thy priests be clothed with justice, Let Thy joyful saints be blest. 3. Let the king behold Thy favor For Thy servant David’s sake, Unto whom a sacred promise, Sure and faithful, Thou didst make. If his children keep Thy covenant And Thy testimony own, Then, as Thou, O Lord, hast promised, They shall sit upon the throne; Then, as Thou, O Lord, hast promised, They shall sit upon the throne. 4. Thou, the Lord, hast chosen Zion, Thou hast ever loved her well; This My resting place forever, Here, Thou say’st, “I choose to dwell. Surely I will bless and help her, Feed her poor, her saints make glad, And her priests shall stand before Me In salvation’s garments clad; And her priests shall stand before Me In salvation’s garments clad. 5. I will cause the might of David Ever more and more to grow; On the path of Mine Anointed I will make a lamp to glow. All His enemies shall perish, I will cover them with shame; But His crown shall ever flourish; Blessèd be His holy name; But His crown shall ever flourish; Blessèd be His holy name.
