Anoint us with the Spirit of your Son: ours not a monarch's crown or tyrant's sword; ours by the love of Christ a kingdom won. 5 Make us apostles, heralds of your cross; forth may we go to tell all realms your grace: by you inspired, may we count all but loss, and stand at last with joy before your face.

Before him on the mountains shall peace the herald go, and righteousness in fountains from hill to valley flow. 4 Kings shall fall down before him, and gold and incense bring; all nations shall adore him, his praise all people sing. To him shall prayer unceasing and daily vows ascend, his kingdom still increasing, a kingdom without end. 5 O'er every foe victorious, he on his throne shall rest, from age to age more glorious, all-blessing and all-blest. The tide of time shall never his covenant remove. His name shall stand for ever: that name to us is Love. Topics: Adoration; Advent; Covenant; Epiphany (feast); Kingdom Used With Tune: CRÜGER

Join all the glorious names

Author: Isaac Watts, 1674-1748 Meter: Appears in 329 hymnals Scripture: Romans 1:4 Lyrics: 1 Join all the glorious names of wisdom, love, and power, that ever mortals knew, that angels ever bore: all are too mean to speak his worth, too mean to set my Saviour forth. 2 But O what gentle terms, what condescending ways doth our Redeemer use to teach his heavenly grace! Mine eyes with joy and wonder see what forms of love he bears for me. 3 Arrayed in mortal flesh, he like an Angel stands, and holds his promises and pardons in his hands; commissioned from his Father's throne to make his grace to mortals known. 4 Great Prophet of my God, my tongue would bless thy name; by thee the joyful news of our salvation came: the joyful news of sins forgiven, of hell subdued and peace with heaven. 5 Be thou my Counsellor, my Pattern, and my Guide; and through this desert land still keep me near thy side: O let my feet ne'er run astray, nor rove, nor seek the crooked way. 6 I love my Shepherd's voice, his watchful eyes shall keep my wandering soul among the thousands of his sheep: he feeds his flock, he calls their names his bosom bears the tender lambs. 7 To this dear Surety's hand will I commit my cause; he answers and fulfils his Father's broken laws: behold my soul at freedom set! my Surety paid the dreadful debt. 8 Jesus my great High-Priest offered his blood and died; my guilty conscience seeks no sacrifice beside: his powerful blood did once atone and now it pleads before the throne. 9 My Advocate appears for my defence on high; the Father bows his ear and lays his thunder by: not all that hell or sin can say shall turn his heart, his love away. 10 My dear almighty Lord, my Conqueror and my King, thy sceptre and thy sword, thy reigning grace I sing. Thine is the power, behold I sit in willing bonds before thy feet. 11 Now let my soul arise, and tread the tempter down; my Captain leads me forth to conquest and a crown. A feeble saint shall win the day, though death and hell obstruct the way. 12 Should all the hosts of death, and powers of hell unknown, put their most dreadful forms of rage and mischief on, I shall be safe, for Christ displays superior power, and guardian-grace.

He is Risen: He is not here

Author: Watts Meter: Appears in 152 hymnals Scripture: Romans 1:4 First Line: Blest morning, whose young, dawning rays Lyrics: 1 Blest morning, whose young dawning rays Beheld our rising God; That saw him triumph o'er the dust, And leave his dark abode. 2 In the cold prison of a tomb The dead Redeemer lay, 'Till the revolving skies had brought The third, th' appointed day. 3 Hell and the grave unite their force To hold our God in vain; The sleeping conqueror arose, And burst their feeble chain. 4 To thy great name, Almighty Lord, These sacred hours we pay, And loud Hosannas shall proclaim The triumph of the day. 5 Salvation and immortal praise To our victorious King; Let heav'n, and earth, and rocks, and seas, With glad Hosannas ring. Topics: The Resurrection of Christ, who arose for our Justification
