Jesus, The Word Of Mercy Give

Author: Charles Wesley Meter: Appears in 50 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Jesus, the word of mercy give, And let it swiftly run, And let the priests themselves believe, And put salvation on. 2 Clothed in the Spirit’s holiness May all Thy people prove The plenitude of Gospel grace The joy of perfect love. 3 Jesus, let all Thy lovers shine, Illustrious, as the sun; And bright with borrowed rays divine, Their glorious circuit run. 4 Beyond the reach of mortals spread Their light where’er they go; Heavenly influence may they shed On all the world below. 5 As giants may they run their race, Exulting in their might: As burning luminaries chase The gloom of hellish night. 6 As the bright Son of Righteousness Their healing wings display; And let their luster still increase Unto the perfect day.

And ever on our earthly path A gleam of glory lies, A light still breaks behind the cloud That veiled Thee from our eyes. 4. Lift up our hearts, lift up our minds: Let Thy dear grace be giv’n; That, while we wander here below, Our treasure be in Heav’n. 5. That where Thou art, at God’s right hand, Our hope, our love, may be: Dwell Thou in us, that we may dwell Forevermore in Thee.

The Lord Our God Is Clothed with Might

Author: Henry K. White, 1785-1806 Meter: Appears in 229 hymnals Lyrics: 1. The Lord our God is clothed with might, The winds obey His will; He speaks, and in His heavenly height, He speaks, and in His heavenly height, The rolling sun stands still. 2. Rebel, ye waves, and o’er the land With threatening aspect roar; The Lord uplifts His awful hand, The Lord uplifts His awful hand, And chains you to the shore. 3. Ye winds of night, your force combine; Without His high behest, Ye shall not, in the mountain pine, Ye shall not, in the mountain pine, Disturb the sparrow’s rest. 4. His voice sublime is heard afar; In distant peals it dies; He yokes the whirlwind to His car, He yokes the whirlwind to His car, And sweeps the howling skies. 5. Ye nations, bend, in reverence bend; Ye monarchs, wait His nod; And bid the choral song ascend And bid the choral song ascend To celebrate our God. Used With Tune: TAPPAN

Lord, Who at Cana's Wedding Feast

Author: Adelaide Thrupp; Godfrey Thring Meter: D Appears in 41 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Lord, who at Cana’s wedding feast Didst as a Guest appear, Thou dearer far than earthly guest, Vouchsafe Thy presence here. For holy Thou indeed dost prove The marriage vow to be, Proclaiming it a type of love Between the Church and Thee. 2. This holy vow that man can make, The golden thread in life, The bond that none may dare to break, That bindeth man and wife, Which, blest by Thee, whate’er betide, No evil shall destroy, Through careworn days each care divides And doubles every joy. 3. On those who now before Thee kneel, O Lord, Thy blessing pour, That each may wake the other’s zeal To love Thee more and more. Oh, grant them here in peace to live, In purity and love, And, this world leaving, to receive A crown of life above. Used With Tune: BETHLEHEM Text Sources: Psalms and Hymns, (stanzas 1 & 3)

O Son of Man, Thou madest known, Through quiet work in shop and home, The sacredness of common things, The chance of life that each day brings. 2. O workman true, may we fulfill In daily life Thy Father’s will; In duty’s call, Thy call we hear To fuller life, through work sincere. 3. Thou master workman, grant us grace The challenge of our tasks to face; By loyal scorn of second best, By effort true, to meet each test. 4. And thus we pray in deed and word, Thy kingdom come on earth, O Lord; In work that gives effect to prayer, Thy purpose for Thy world we share. Used With Tune: BROOKFIELD

Shall This Life Of Mine Be Wasted?

Author: Horatius Bonar Meter: Appears in 12 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Shall this life of mine be wasted? Shall this vineyard lie untilled? Shall true joy pass by untasted, And this soul remain unfilled? 2 Shall the God-given hours be scattered, Like the leaves upon the plain? Shall the blossoms die unwatered By the drops of heavenly rain? 3 Shall I see each fair sun waking, And not feel, it wakes for me? Each glad morning, brightly breaking, And not feel, it breaks for me? 4 Shall I see the roses blowing, And not wish to bloom as they? Holy fragrance round me throwing, Luring others on the way. 5 Shall I hear the free bird singing In the summer’s stainless sky, Far aloft its glad flight winging, And not seek to soar as high? 6 Shall this heart still spend its treasures On the things that fade and die; Shall it court the hollow pleasures Of bewildering vanity? 7 Shall these lips of mine be idle; Shall I open them in vain? Shall I not with God’s own bridle Their frivolities restrain? 8 Shall these eyes of mine still wander? Or, no longer turned afar, Fix a firmer gaze and fonder On the bright and morning Star? 9 Shall these feet of mine, delaying Still in ways of sin be found, Braving snares and madly straying On the world’s bewitching ground? 10 No, I was not born to trifle Life way in dreams or sin! No, I must not, dare not stifle Longings such as these within! 11 Swiftly moving, upward, onward, Let my soul in faith be borne; Calmly gazing, skyward, sunward, Let my eye unblinking turn! 12 Where the cross, God’s love revealing, Sets the fettered spirit free, Where it sheds its wondrous healing, There my soul, thy rest shall be. 13 Then no longer idly dreaming Shall I fling my years away; But, each precious hour redeeming, Wait for the eternal day!

The heavens declare Thy glory, The firmament Thy power; Day unto day the story Repeats from hour to hour; Night unto night replying, Proclaims in every land, O Lord, with voice undying, The wonders of Thy hand. 2. The sun with royal splendor Goes forth to chant Thy praise; And moonbeams soft and tender Their gentler anthem raise; O’er every tribe and nation That music strange is poured, The song of all creation, To Thee, creation’s Lord. 3. How perfect, just, and holy The precepts Thou hast given; Still making wise the lowly, They lift the thoughts to heaven; How pure, how soul restoring Thy Gospel’s heavenly ray, A brighter radiance pouring Than noon of brightest day. 4. All heaven on high rejoices To do its Maker’s will; The stars with solemn voices Resound Thy praises still; So let my whole behavior, Thoughts, words, and actions be, O Lord, my Strength, my Savior, One ceaseless song to Thee.
