People of the living God!

Author: Montgomery Appears in 323 hymnals Scripture: Ruth 1:16-17 Lyrics: 1 People of the living God! I have sought the world around, Paths of sin and sorrow trod, Peace and comfort nowhere found: Now to you my spirit turns, Turns a fugitive unblest; Brethren! where your altar burns, Oh, receive me into rest. 2 Lonely I no longer roam, Like the cloud, the wind, the wave; Where you dwell shall be my home, Where you die shall be my grave: Mine the God whom you adore, Your Redeemer shall be mine; Earth can fill my soul no more, Every idol I resign.

If where the lambs are straying O’er mountains high, Still by His grace I’ll answer, Lord, here am I. [Refrain] Topics: Loyalty and Obedience Used With Tune: [Where my Redeemer leads me]

Author: Samuel Davies Appears in 390 hymnals Scripture: Ruth 1:16 First Line: Lord, I am thine, entirely thine Lyrics: 1 Lord, I am thine, entirely thine, Purchased and saved by blood divine, With full consent thine I would be, And own thy sovereign right in me. 2 Grant one poor sinner more a place Among the children of thy grace; A wretched sinner, lost to God, But ransomed by Immanuel's blood. 3 Thine would I love, thine would I die, Be thine through all eternity; The vow is past beyond repeal; And now I set the solemn seal. 4 Here at that cross where flows the blood That bought my guilty soul for God, Thee, my new Master now I call, And consecrate to thee my all. 5 Do thou assist a feeble worm, The great engagement to perform; Thy grace can full assistance lend, And on that grace I dare depend.

Amen. GERMAN: 1 Jesu, geh voran auf der Lebensbahn, und wir wollen nicht verweilen, dir getreulich nachzueilen; führ uns an der Hand bis ins Vaterland. 2 Soll's uns hart ergehn, lass uns feste stehn und auch in den schwersten Tagen niemals über Lasten klagen; denn durch Trübsal hier geht der Weg zu dir. 3 Rühret eigner Schmerz irgend unser Herz, kümmert uns ein fremdes Leiden, o so gib Geduld zu beiden; richte unsern Sinn auf das Ende hin! 4 Ordne unsern Gang, Jesu, lebenslang. Führst du uns durch rauhe Wege, gib uns auch die nötge Pflege; tu uns nach dem Lauf deine Türe auf. Amen.
