I Bind unto Myself Today

Author: Patrick; Cecil Frances Alexander Meter: Appears in 64 hymnals Scripture: Proverbs 8 Lyrics: 1 I bind unto myself today the strong name of the Trinity by invocation of the same, the Three in One and One in Three. 2 I bind this day to me forever, by power of faith, Christ’s incarnation, his baptism in the Jordan river, his death on cross for my salvation, his bursting from the spiced tomb, his riding up the heavenly way, his coming at the day of doom, I bind unto myself today. 3 I bind unto myself today the virtues of the starlit heaven, the glorious sun’s life-giving ray, the whiteness of the moon at even, the flashing of the lightning free, the whirling wind’s tempestuous shocks, the stable earth, the deep salt sea around the old eternal rocks. 4 I bind unto myself today the power of God to hold and lead, God’s eye to watch, God’s might to stay, God’s ear to hearken to my need, the wisdom of my God to teach, God’s hand to guide, God’s shield to ward, the word of God to give me speech, God’s heavenly host to be my guard. 5 Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me. Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger. 6 I bind unto myself the name, the strong name of the Trinity by invocation of the same, the Three in One and One in Three, of whom all nature has creation, eternal Father, Spirit, Word. Praise to the Lord of my salvation; salvation is of Christ the Lord!

Christ the wisdom of God

Meter: Appears in 57 hymnals Scripture: Proverbs 8:12-31 First Line: Shall wisdom cry aloud Lyrics: 1 Shall wisdom cry aloud, And not her speech be heard? The voice of God's eternal word, Deserves it no regard? 2 "I was his chief delight, "His everlasting Son, "Before the first of all his works, "Creation was begun. 3 "Before the flying clouds, "Before the solid land, "Before the fields, before the floods "I dwelt at his right-hand. 4 "When he adorn'd the skies, "And built them, I was there "To order when the sun should rise, "And marshal ev'ry star. 5 "When he pour'd out the sea, "And spread the flowing deep; "I gave the flood a firm decree "In its own bounds to keep. 6 "Upon the empty air "The earth was balanc'd well: "With joy I saw the mansion where "The sons of men should dwell. 7 "My busy thoughts at first "On their salvation ran, "Ere sin was born, or Adam's dust "Was fashion'd to a man. 8."Then come, receive my grace, "Ye children, and be wise: "Happy the man that keeps my ways, "The man that shuns them dies."

To us the voice of Wisdom cries

Author: James Montgomery Meter: Appears in 7 hymnals Scripture: Proverbs 8 Lyrics: To us the voice of Wisdom cries, Hearken, ye children, and be wise; Better than gold the fruit I bear, Rubies to me may not compare, Happy the man who daily waits To hear me, watching at my gates; Wretched is he who scorns my voice, Death and destruction are his choice. To them that love me I am kind; And those who seek me early find; My Son, give me thine heart,--and learn Wisdom from folly to discern. 28 The Lord possess'd me, ere of old, His hand the firmament unroll'd; Before He bade the mountains stand, Or pour'd the ocean round the land. Rejoicing then before his throne, From everlasting I was known; Rejoicing still, as in His sight, With men on earth is my delight. Mark, the beginning of my law, --Fear ye the Lord with sacred awe; Mark the fulfilment of the whole, Love ye the Lord with all your soul. We hear, we learn; may we obey; Jesus, the life, the truth, the way, Wisdom and righteousness, we see, Grace and salvation all in Thee. Topics: Wisdom

Heavenly things my soul hath seen

Author: A. L. Waring Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: Proverbs 8:20-21 Lyrics: Heavenly things my soul hath seen, Things the Holy Spirit shows, — Things on which the heart can lean When the flesh has no repose. All was light, and life and rest — Love was mine, and I was blest: Every pain I had to bear Proved my Shepherd's tender care; Everything I had to do Taught my heart that He was true: I could choose the way He trod, I could give my will to God. Waters still and pastures green, Pleasant paths my soul hath seen. Is it all a vision gone! Was the gladness all in vain? Oh to travel firmly on! Oh to tread those paths again! Lord, on Thee my help is laid; Thou art true, but I have strayed; — Left Thee with a froward will, Strayed from One who loves me still. Through the tangled waste I see, Seek the sheep that pants for Thee. Show me the forsaken track, Lead Thy wanderer safely back: Let no fear my steps withhold From the flock within Thy fold. Sacred memories do not cease — Still my heart, where'er I go, Sees the river of thy peace Through those pleasant pastures flow, Still, amid the desert drear, Songs of heavenly love I hear. Heavenly love! the sound is sweet, Lo, it stays my wandering feet, — Leads to Thee for all I lack, — Softly bids me welcome back. Thoughts of perfect gifts it brings, Thoughts of deep enduring things, — Thoughts of joy I yet may see Hidden in Thy word for me. O my Savior! never more From my treasure to depart, Now my failing will restore, Fix the purpose of my heart. Let Thy spirit in me be Springing up in love to Thee. Listening, following day by day, Steadfast in my onward way, Girded with Thy faithful mind, Pleasant paths I yet shall find. Fonntains at my feet shall rise, Riches hid shall meet mine eyes. Songs of glory to my God In the desert shall be heard! There is comfort in Thy rod, Power in Thy reproving word. In a spirit all thine own Make Thy hardest sayings known. They will guard me with Thy strength, Bear me all my journey's length; Give me for the daily strife, Joy and health and plenteous life. Hid within for precious fruit, Love shalt take eternal root — Love that in the Spirit lives; Love that grows by all it gives. Neath a rule so firm to bless, I shall learn Thy gentleness. Show it forth in all I do, Making others feel it too. Savior! fast the moments flee — O decide my will today. Bind my heart to follow Thee Ere the song has died away. Never let a fear or pain Turn me to myself again. Though my strength has failed me long, Let Thy promise make me strong — Strong my nature to withstand, — Strong to hold Thy guiding hand. All the joy before me set Teach me never to forget. If indeed with Thee to stay I must choose a narrow way, — If my inmost heart must give All its purpose, thus to live, — Still, my portion Thou must be, Still my spirit cries to Thee. O for all Thy light to shine! O for love to keep me Thine.
