Hymn 116

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 74 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 22:37-40 First Line: Thus saith the first, the great command Lyrics: Thus saith the first, the great command, "Let all thy inward powers unite To love thy Maker and thy God With utmost vigor and delight. "Then shall thy neighbor next in place Share thine affections and esteem, And let thy kindness to thyself Measure and rule thy love to him." This is the sense that Moses spoke, This did the prophets preach and prove; For want of this the law is broke, And the whole law's fulfilled by love. But O! how base our passions are! How cold our charity and zeal! Lord, fill our souls with heav'nly fire, Or we shall ne'er perform thy will.

What think ye of Christ?

Author: Newton Appears in 104 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 22:43 First Line: What think ye of Christ; is the test Lyrics: 1 What think ye of Christ; is the test To try both your state and your scheme, You cannot be right in the rest, Unless you think rightly of him; As JESUS appears in your view, As he is beloved or not, So GOD is disposed to you, And mercy or wrath is your lot. 2 Some take him a creature to be, A man, or an angel at most; Sure these have not feelings like me, Nor know themselves wretched, and lost: So guilty, so helpless am I, I durst not confide in his blood, Nor on his protection rely, Unless I were sure he's a GOD. 3 Some call him a Saviour in word, But mix their own works with his plan And hope he his help will afford, When they have done all that they can. If doings prove rather too light, (A little they own, they may. fail) They purpose to make up full weight, By casting his name in the the scale. 4 Some stile him the pearl of great price, And say he's the fountain of joys, Yet feed upon folly and vice, And cleave to the world and its toys Like Judas, the Saviour they kiss, And as they salute him betray; Ah! what will profession like this Avail in his terrible day. 5 If ask'd what of Jesus I think? Tho' still my best thoughts are but poor I say, he's my meat and my drink, My life and my strength and my store, My shepherd, my husband, my friend, My Saviour from sin and from thrall, My hope from beginning to end, My portion, my Lord, and my All.
