I Love the Lord

Author: Edward A. Collier Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: I love the Lord, because He heareth me Lyrics: 1. I love the Lord, because he heareth me Oft as my suppliant voice to Him ascendeth; And since to me a list'ning ear He bendeth; To Him my whole life long my prayer shall be. 2. The cords of death encompassed me around; Pangs of despair held me in bondage dreary; Of trouble and of grief my life was weary, Till on His Name I called and comfort found. 3. My soul's salvation of the Lord I craved, The gracious, righteous Lord, all pity showing; The simple He preserveth, grace bestowing; And me, brought low, He in His mercy saved. 4. Return, my soul, to thy sweet rest again: Before the Lord, so kindly, safely keeping From death and falls and tears of bitter weeping, I now will walk in lands of living men. 5. What shall I render to the Lord today For all His benefits upon me falling? Salvation's cup I'll take, and on Him calling, I, where His people meet, my vows will pay. 6. Yea, I the sacrifice of thanks will bring, And, in the midst of thee, O Zion holy, Before assembled saints, wtih spirit lowly, Will pay my voiws. Praise ye the Lord our King!

Today I Live

Author: Fred Kaan Meter: Appears in 6 hymnals First Line: Today I live, but once shall come my death Lyrics: 1 Today I live, but once shall come my death; one day shall still my laughter and my crying, bring to a halt my heartbeat and my breath: O, give me faith for living and for dying. 2 How I shall die, or when, I do not know, nor where, for endless is the world's horizon: but save me, God, from thoughts that lay me low, from morbid fears that freeze my powers of reason. 3 When earthly life shall close, as close it must, let Jesus be my brother and my merit. Let me without regret recall the past then, then, into your hands commit my spirit. 4 Meanwhile I live and move and I am glad, enjoy this life and all its interweaving; each given day, as I take up the thread, let love suggest my mode, my mood of living.

Break not the circle of enabling love

Author: Fred Kaan (b. 1929) Meter: Appears in 4 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Break not the circle of enabling love where people grow, forgiven and forgiving; break not that circle - make it wider still, till it includes, embraces all the living. 2 Come, wonder at this love that comes to life, where words of freedom are with humour spoken and people keep no score of wrong and guilt, but will that human bonds remain unbroken. 3 Sing high! Give thanks for all who came and come to teach the world the craft of hopeful craving for peace and wholeness that will fill the earth, for faith that stirs us to creative living. 4 Join then the movement of the love that frees, till people of whatever race or nation will truly be themselves, stand on their feet, see eye to eye with laughter and elation.

All Ye That Pass By

Author: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788 Meter: Appears in 97 hymnals First Line: All ye that pass by, to Jesus draw nigh Lyrics: 1. All ye that pass by, to Jesus draw nigh: To you is it nothing that Jesus should die? Your ransom and peace, your surety He is: Come, see if there ever was sorrow like His. 2. For what you have done His blood must atone: The Father hath punished for you His dear Son. The Lord, in the day of His anger, did lay Your sins on the Lamb, and He bore them away. 3. He answered for all: O come at His call, And low at His cross with astonishment fall! But lift up your eyes at Jesus’ cries: Impassive, He suffers; immortal, He dies. 4. He dies to atone for sins not His own; Your debt He hath paid, and your work He hath done. Ye all may receive the peace He did leave, Who made intercession, My Father, forgive! 5. For you and for me He prayed on the tree: The prayer is accepted, the sinner is free. That sinner am I, who on Jesus rely, And come for the pardon God cannot deny. 6. My pardon I claim; for a sinner I am, A sinner believing in Jesus’ name. He purchased the grace which now I embrace: O Father, Thou know’st He hath died in my place. 7. His death is my plea; my Advocate see, And hear the blood speak that hath answered for me. My ransom He was when He bled on the cross; And losing His life He hath carried my cause.

I Know, O God, I Need Thy Watchful Care

Author: Zakarias Nielsen Meter: Appears in 2 hymnals Lyrics: 1 I know, O God, I need Thy watchful care, Thou callest me when from Thy path I wander; Thou chidest me when sinful ways Thou breakest; I know Thy love for me is rich and warm, Yea, warmest when Thou me most strongly shakest. 2 I know Thou smitest not to do me harm, Thou lovest me when sinful ways Thou breakest; I know Thy love for me is rich and warm, Yea, warmest when Thou me most strongly shakest. 3 And yet each time Thy hand upon me lies, When I in sin have left Thy call unheeded, My heart breaks out in loud and bitter cries, I think Thou smitest more than it is needed. 4 How oft my prayer: "O God, Thy will be done!" Has unto Thee in confidence ascended; But when Thy will against mine own has gone, I knew it was my own that I intended. 5 I waver, then, but know that Thou art right, Thy guiding hand Thy willful child is training; Thy yoke is easy, and Thy burden light, I know I have no reason for complaining. 6 Teach me, O God, to will but what Thou wilt, And check Thou me when oft mine own I'm seeking; Chastize Thou me, but take away my guilt, And give me grace to hear when Thou art speaking.
