O God, in Whom We Live and Move

Author: Samuel Longfellow Meter: Appears in 36 hymnals Lyrics: 1. O God, in whom we live and move, Thy love is law, Thy law is love; Thy present Spirit waits to fill The soul which comes to do Thy will. 2. Unto thy children’s spirits teach Thy love, beyond the powers of speech; And make them know, with joyful awe, The encircling presence of Thy law. 3. Its patient working doth fulfill Man’s hope, and God’s all-perfect will, Nor suffers one true word or thought, Or deed of love, to come to naught. 4. Such faith, O God, our spirits fill, That we may work in patience still. Who works for justice, works for Thee; Who works in love, Thy child shall be. Used With Tune: GERMANY

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.

A Little Flock! So Calls He Thee

Author: Horatius Bonar Meter: Appears in 10 hymnals Lyrics: 1 A little flock! So calls He thee, Who bought thee with His blood; A little flock, disowned of men, But owned and loved of God. 2 A little flock! So calls He thee; Church of the first-born, hear! Be not ashamed to own the name; It is no name of fear. 3 A little flock! Yes, even so; A handful among men, Such is the purpose of thy God; So willeth He, Amen! 4 Not many rich or noble called, Not many great or wise; They whom God makes His kings and priests, Are poor in human eyes. 5 Church of the everlasting God, The Father’s gracious choice, Amid the voices of this earth, How feeble is thy voice! 6 Thy words amid the words of earth, How noiseless and how low! Amid the hurrying crowds of time, Thy steps how calm and slow! 7 But ’mid the wrinkled brows of earth, Thy brow how free from care; ’Mid the flushed cheeks of riot here, Thy cheek how pale and fair! 8 Amid the restless eyes of earth, How steadfast is thine eye, Fixed on the silent loveliness Of the far eastern sky. 9 A little flock! ’Tis well, ’tis well; Such be her lot and name; Thro’ ages past it has been so, And now ’tis still the same. 10 But the chief Shepherd comes at length; Her feeble days are o’er, No more a handful in the earth, A little flock no more. 11 No more a lily among thorns; Weary, and faint, and few, But countless as the stars of heaven, Or as the early dew. 12 Then entering the eternal halls, In robes of victory, That mighty multitude shall keep The joyous jubilee. 13 Unfading palms they bear aloft, Unfaltering songs they sing; Unending festival they keep, In presence of the King.

Thus Far the Lord Hath Led Me On

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 657 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.

My Gracious Lord, I Own Thy Right

Author: Philip Doddridge, 1702-1751 Meter: Appears in 259 hymnals Lyrics: 1. My gracious Lord, I own Thy right To every service I can pay, And call it my supreme delight To hear Thy dictates, and obey. 2. What is my being but for Thee, Its sure support, its noblest end? ’Tis my delight Thy face to see, And serve the cause of such a Friend. 3. I would not sigh for worldly joy, Or to increase my worldly good; Nor future days nor powers employ To spread a sounding name abroad. 4. ’Tis to my Savior I would live, To Him who for my ransom died; Nor could all worldly honor give Such bliss as crowns me at His side. 5. His work my hoary age shall bless, When youthful vigor is no more; And my last hour of life confess His dying love, His saving power.

Now Shall My Solemn Vows Be Paid

My lips and cheerful heart prepare To make His mercies known; Come, ye that fear my God, and hear The wonders He has done. 3. When on my head huge sorrows fell, I sought His heav’nly aid; He saved my sinking soul from hell, And death’s eternal shade. 4. If sin lay covered in my heart, While prayer employed my tongue, The Lord had shown me no regard, Nor I His praises sung. 5. But God (His name be ever blessed) Has set my spirit free; Nor turned from Him my poor request, Nor turned His heart from me. Used With Tune: NATIVITY Text Sources: The Psalms of David, 1719
