Hymn 125

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 411 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 5:7 First Line: With joy we meditate the grace Lyrics: With joy we meditate the grace Of our High Priest above; His heart is made of tenderness, His bowels melt with love. Touched with a sympathy within, He knows our feeble frame; He knows what sore temptations mean, For he has felt the same. But spotless, innocent, and pure, The great Redeemer stood, While Satan's fiery darts he bore, And did resist to blood. He in the days of feeble flesh Poured out his cries and tears, And in his measure feels afresh What every member bears. [He'll never quench the smoking flax, But raise it to a flame; The bruised reed he never breaks, Nor scorns the meanest name.] Then let our humble faith address His mercy and his power; We shall obtain deliv'ring grace In the distressing hour.

Alleluia! Sing to Jesus

Author: W. Chatterton Dix Meter: D Appears in 203 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 5:1-8 First Line: Alleluia! Sing to Jesus Lyrics: 1 Alleluia! Sing to Jesus; his the scepter, his the throne! Alleluia! His the triumph, his the victory alone. Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion thunder like a mighty flood; Jesus out of ev'ry 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 doays were o'er, shall our hearts forget his promise, "I am with you evermore"? 3 Alleluia! Bread of Angels, thou on earth our food, our 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, heav'n 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.

My Song Is Love Unknown

Author: Samuel Crossman Meter: Appears in 119 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 5:7-10 Lyrics: 1 My song is love unknown, my Savior’s love to me, love to the loveless shown, that they might lovely be. O who am I, that for my sake my God should take frail flesh and die? My God should take frail flesh and die? 2 God left the richest throne salvation to bestow; but Christ as flesh and bone the world refused to know, But, O my Friend, my Friend indeed, who at my need His life did spend.did life expend; who at my need did life expend. 3 Sometimes they threw down palms and sweetest praises sang. Hosannas and glad psalms through streets and markets rang. Then "Crucify!" is all their breath, for blood and death they thirst and cry; for blood and death they thirst and cry. 4 What has my Sovereign done? What makes this rage and spite? Christ gave new strength to run, restored the gift of sight. Sweet injuries! Yet they at these themselves displease, and 'gainst Christ rise; themselves displease, and 'gainst Christ rise. 5 I sing my plain belief, one song my heart out-pours: never was pain nor grief, never was love like yours. This is my Friend, in whose sweet praise I all my days could gladly spend; I all my days could gladly spend. Topics: The Grace of Jesus Christ In Praise of Christ Used With Tune: RHOSYMEDRE
