Courage, Brother, Do Not Stumble

Author: Norman MacLeod Meter: D Appears in 180 hymnals Refrain First Line: Trust in God, trust in God Lyrics: 1. Courage, brother, do not stumble, Though thy path be dark as night; There’s a star to guide the humble: Trust in God and do the right. Let the road be rough and dreary, And its end far out of sight, Foot it bravely; strong or weary, Refrain: Trust in God, trust in God, Trust in God and do the right. 2. Perish policy and cunning, Perish all that fears the light! Whether losing, whether winning, Trust in God and do the right, Trust no party, sect or faction; Trust no leaders in the fight; Put in every word or action, [Refrain] 3. Some will hate thee, some will love thee, Some will flatter, some will slight; Cease from man, and look above thee: Trust in God and do the right. Simple rule, and safest guiding, Inward peace and inward might, Star upon our path abiding, [Refrain] Alternate form of last verse: 4. Trust no lovely forms of passion— Fiends may look like angels bright; Trust no custom, school or fashion: Trust in God, and do the right. Simple rule, and safest guiding, Inward peace, and inward might, Star upon our path abiding, [Refrain] Used With Tune: COURAGE Text Sources: First appeared as a poem in The Edinburgh Christian Magazine

The Heavens Declare Thy Glory (Birks)

Author: Thomas Birks Meter: D Appears in 58 hymnals First Line: The heavens declare Thy glory Lyrics: 1. The heavens declare Thy glory, The firmament Thy power; Day unto day the story Repeats from hour to hour; Night unto night replying, Proclaims in every land, O Lord, with voice undying, The wonders of Thy hand. 2. The sun with royal splendor Goes forth to chant Thy praise; And moonbeams soft and tender Their gentler anthem raise; O’er every tribe and nation That music strange is poured, The song of all creation, To Thee, creation’s Lord. 3. How perfect, just, and holy The precepts Thou hast given; Still making wise the lowly, They lift the thoughts to heaven; How pure, how soul restoring Thy Gospel’s heavenly ray, A brighter radiance pouring Than noon of brightest day. 4. All heaven on high rejoices To do its Maker’s will; The stars with solemn voices Resound Thy praises still; So let my whole behavior, Thoughts, words, and actions be, O Lord, my Strength, my Savior, One ceaseless song to Thee.

Thus Far the Lord Hath Led Me On

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 656 hymnals Lyrics: Thus far the Lord hath led me on, Thus far His power prolongs my days, And every evening shall make known Some fresh memorial of His grace. Much of my time has run to waste, And I, perhaps, am near my home; But He forgives my follies past, 1. And gives me strength for days to come. I lay my body down to sleep; Peace is the pillow for my head; While well appointed angels keep Their watchful stations round my bed. 2. In vain the sons of earth or hell Tell me a thousand frightful things My God in safety makes me dwell Beneath the shadow of His wings. 3. Faith in His name forbids my fear; O may Thy presence ne’er depart! And in the morning make me hear The love and kindness of Thy heart. 4. Thus, when the night of death shall come, My flesh shall rest beneath the ground, And wait Thy voice to rouse my tomb, With sweet salvation in the sound.

The Heavens Declare thy Glory

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 592 hymnals First Line: The heav’ns declare Thy glory, Lord Lyrics: 1 The heav’ns declare Thy glory, Lord, In every star Thy wisdom shines; But when our eyes behold Thy Word, We read Thy name in fairer lines. 2 The rolling sun, the changing light, And nights and days, Thy power confess: But the blest volume Thou hast writ Reveals Thy justice and Thy grace. 3 Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise Round the whole earth, and never stand: So when Thy truth begun its race, It touched and glanced on every land. 4 Nor shall Thy spreading Gospel rest Till through the world Thy truth has run, Till Christ has all the nations blest That see the light, or feel the sun. 5 Great Sun of Righteousness, arise, Bless the dark world with heav’nly light; Thy Gospel makes the simple wise, Thy laws are pure, Thy judgments right. 6 Thy noblest wonders here we view In souls renewed and sins forgiv’n; Lord, cleanse my sins, my soul renew, And make Thy Word my guide to Heav’n.

Bright Was the Guiding Star That Led

Author: Harriet Auber Meter: Appears in 154 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Bright was the guiding star that led, With mild, benignant ray, The Gentiles to the lowly shed, Where the Redeemer lay. 2. But lo! a brighter, clearer, light Now points to His abode; It shines, through sin and sorrow’s night, To guide us to our God. 3. Oh! haste to follow where it leads The gracious call obey; Be rugged wilds, or flowery meads, The Christian’s destined way. 4. Oh! gladly tread the narrow path, While light and grace are given; Who meekly follow Christ on earth Shall reign with Him in Heaven. Used With Tune: ST.

Author: Anonymous Appears in 7 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Gracious Lord, remember David, How he made Thy house his care, How he vowed to seek no pleasure Till Thy house he should prepare. Lord, remember his devotion; Restless in his courts he trod Till he found a habitation Fit for Israel’s mighty God; Till he found a habitation Fit for Israel’s mighty God. 2. Far away God’s ark was resting, It is with His people now; We will go into His temple, At His footstool we will bow. With the ark, Thy might revealing, Enter, Lord, into Thy rest; Let Thy priests be clothed with justice, Let Thy joyful saints be blest; Let Thy priests be clothed with justice, Let Thy joyful saints be blest. 3. Let the king behold Thy favor For Thy servant David’s sake, Unto whom a sacred promise, Sure and faithful, Thou didst make. If his children keep Thy covenant And Thy testimony own, Then, as Thou, O Lord, hast promised, They shall sit upon the throne; Then, as Thou, O Lord, hast promised, They shall sit upon the throne. 4. Thou, the Lord, hast chosen Zion, Thou hast ever loved her well; This My resting place forever, Here, Thou say’st, “I choose to dwell. Surely I will bless and help her, Feed her poor, her saints make glad, And her priests shall stand before Me In salvation’s garments clad; And her priests shall stand before Me In salvation’s garments clad. 5. I will cause the might of David Ever more and more to grow; On the path of Mine Anointed I will make a lamp to glow. All His enemies shall perish, I will cover them with shame; But His crown shall ever flourish; Blessèd be His holy name; But His crown shall ever flourish; Blessèd be His holy name.
