At the Name of Jesus

Author: Caroline M. Noel Meter: D Appears in 232 hymnals Scripture: John 1:1-3 Lyrics: 1 At the name of Jesus ev'ry knee shall bow, ev'ry tongue confess him King of glory now; 'tis the Father's pleasure we should call him Lord, who from the beginning was the mighty Word. 2 Humbled for a season, to receive a name from the lips of sinners unto whom he came, faithfully he bore it, spotless to the last, brought it back victorious when from death he passed, 3 bore it up triumphant with its human light, through all ranks of creatures to the central height, to the throne of Godhead, to the Father's breast, filled it with the glory of that perfect rest. 4 In your hearts enthrone him; there let him subdue all that is not holy, all that is not true; crown him as your Captain in temptation's hour; let his will enfold you in its light and power. 5 Christians, this Lord Jesus shall return again, with his Father's glory, with his angel-train, for all wreaths of empire meet upon his brow, and our hearts confess him King of glory now.

Jesus, Lover of My Soul

Author: Charles Wesley Meter: D Appears in 3,030 hymnals Scripture: John 1:14 Lyrics: 1 Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to thy bosom fly, while the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high; hide me, O my Savior, hide till the storm of life is past; safe into the haven guide; O receive my soul at last. 2 Other refuge have I none, hangs my helpless soul on thee; leave, O leave me not alone, still support and comfort me. All my trust on thee is stayed, all my help from thee I bring; cover my defenseless head with the shadow of thy wing. 3 Thou, O Christ, art all I want; more than all in thee I find; raise the fallen, cheer the faint, heal the sick, and lead the blind. Just and holy is thy name, I am all unrighteousness; false and full of sin I am, thou art full of truth and grace. 4 Plenteous grace with thee is found, grace to cover all my sin; let the healing streams abound; make and keep me pure within. Thou of life the fountain art, freely let me take of thee; spring thou up within my heart, rise to all eternity. Used With Tune: ABERYSTWYTH

Hymn 95

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 153 hymnals Scripture: John 1:13 First Line: Not all the outward forms on earth Lyrics: Not all the outward forms on earth, Nor rites that God has giv'n, Nor will of man, nor blood, nor birth, Can raise a soul to heav'n. The sovereign will of God alone Creates us heirs of grace Born in the image of his Son, A new, peculiar race. The Spirit, like some heav'nly wind, Blows on the sons of flesh, New-models all the carnal mind, And forms the man afresh. Our quickened souls awake, and rise From the long sleep of death; On heav'nly things we fix our eyes, And praise employs our breath.

Hymn 2

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 94 hymnals Scripture: John 1:1 First Line: Ere the blue heav'ns were stretched abroad Lyrics: Ere the blue heav'ns were stretched abroad, From everlasting was the Word: With God he was; the Word was God, And must divinely be adored. By his own power were all things made; By him supported all things stand; He is the whole creation's head, And angels fly at his command. Ere sin was born, or Satan fell, He led the host of morning stars: Thy generation who can tell, Or count the numbers of thy years? But lo! he leaves those heav'nly forms, The Word descends and dwells in clay, That he may hold converse with worms, Dressed in such feeble flesh as they. Mortals with joy beheld his face, Th' eternal Father's only Son; How full of truth! how full of grace! When through his eyes the Godhead shone. Archangels leave their high abode To learn new mysteries here, and tell The loves of our descending God, The glories of Immanuel.
