Rejoice in God's Saints

Author: Fred Pratt Green Meter: Appears in 18 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 11 First Line: Rejoice in God's saints, today and all days Lyrics: 1 Rejoice in God's saints, today and all days; a world without saints forgets how to praise. Their faith in acquiring the habit of prayer, their depth of adoring, Lord, help us to share. 2 Some march with events to turn them God's way; some need to withdraw, the better to pray; some carry the gospel through fire and through flood: our world is their parish: their purpose is God. 3 Rejoice in those saints, unpraised and unknown, who bear someone's cross, or shoulder their own: they shame our complaining, our comforts, our cares: what patience in caring, what courage, is theirs! 4 Rejoice in God's saints, today and all days; a world without saints forgets how to praise. in loving, in living, they prove it is true: the way of self-giving, Lord, leads us to you.

How Clear Is Our Vocation, Lord

Author: Fred Pratt Green Meter: Appears in 19 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 11 Lyrics: 1 How clear is our vocation, Lord, When once we heed Your call: To live according to Your word, And daily learn, refreshed, restored, That You are Lord of all And will not let us fall. 2 But if, forgetful, we should find Your yoke is hard to bear, If worldly pressures fray the mind And love itself cannot unwind Its tangled skein of care: Our inward life repair. 3 We mark Your saints, how they became In hindrances more sure, Whose joyful virtues put to shame The casual way we wear Your name, And by our faults obscure Your power to cleanse and cure. 4 In what You give us, Lord, to do, Together or alone, In old routines or ventures new, May we not cease to look to You-- The cross You hung upon-- All You endeavored done.

Give Me the Wings of Faith

The Son of God Goes Forth to War

Author: Reginald Heber Appears in 798 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 11:33-40 Lyrics: 1 The Son of God goes forth to war, A kingly crown to gain; His blood-red banner streams afar: Who follows in His train? Who best can drink his cup of woe, Triumphant over pain, Who patient bears His cross below, He follows in His train. 2 The martyr first, whose eagle eye Could pierce beyond the grave, Who saw his Master in the sky, And called on Him to save. Like Him, with pardon on his tongue In midst of mortal pain, He prayed for them that did the wrong: Who follows in His train? 3 A glorious band, the chosen few On whom the Spirit came, Twelve valiant saints, their hope they knew, And mocked the cross and flame: They met the tyrant's brandished steel, The lion's gory mane; They bowed their necks the death to feel: Who follows in their turn? 4 A noble army, men and boys, The matron and the maid, Around the Saviour's throne rejoice, In robes of light arrayed. They climbed the steep ascent of heav'n Through peril, toil, and pain; O God, to us may grace be giv'n To follow in their train! Amen.

Who would true valour see

Author: John Bunyan (1628-1688) Meter: Appears in 139 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 11:33 Lyrics: 1 Who would true valour see, let him come hither; one here will constant be, come wind, come weather; there's no discouragement shall make him once relent his first avowed intent to be a pilgrim. 2 Whoso beset him round with dismal stories, do but themselves confound; his strength the more is. No lion can him fright; he'll with a giant fight, but he will have a right to be a pilgrim. 3 Hobgoblin nor foul friend can daunt his spirit; he knows he at the end shall life inherit. Then fancies fly away; he'll fear not what men say; he'll labour night and day to be a pilgrim.
