Jesus, thy Blood and righteousness

Fully through thee absolved I am From sin and fear, from guilt and shame. 3 Lord, I believe thy precious Blood, Which at the mercy-seat of God Forever doth for sinners plead, For me, e'en for my soul, was shed. 4 When from the dust of death I rise To claim my mansion in the skies, E'en then shall be all my plea, 'Jesus hath lived, hath died for me.'

Jesus! Thou Joy of loving hearts!

Meter: Appears in 559 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Jesus, Thou Joy of loving hearts! Thou Fount of life! Thou Light of men! From the best bliss that earth imparts We turn unfilled to Thee again. 2 Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood; Thou savest those that on Thee call; To them that seek Thee, Thou art good, To them that find Thee, all in all. 3 We taste Thee, O Thou living Bread! And long to feast upon Thee still; We drink of Thee, the Fountain Head, And thirst our souls from Thee to fill. 4 Our restless spirits yearn for Thee, Where'er our changeful lot is cast; Glad, when Thy gracious smile we see, Blest, when our faith can hold Thee fast. 5 O Jesus! ever with us stay; Make all our moments calm and bright; Chase the dark night of sin away; Shed o'er the world Thy holy light.

Lord Jesus Christ! To Thee we pray

Meter: Appears in 12 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Lord Jesus Christ! To Thee we pray, From us God's wrath Thou turn'st away, Thine agony and bitter death Redeem us from eternal wrath. 2 That we may never this forget, Thy body for our food is set; And with the wine Thou giv'st Thy blood To cleanse our souls, a sacred flood. 3 Let none, impenitent and bold, This sacred feast profanely hold: He who unworthy sitteth there Shall sink to death and dark despair. 4 But praise the Father, by whose love The Son descended from above, Became the bread of life to thee, And bore thy sins upon the tree. 5 Our Saviour saith: Come unto me, Ye who now feel your poverty: My mercy I will freely give, Your burdened conscience I'll relieve. 6 Could'st thou unaided this obtain, Then had I shed my blood in vain; This feast were vainly spread for thee, If thou require no food from me. 7 If in thy heart this faith doth rest, Which thou hast here in words confessed, A welcome guest thou here shalt be, And Christ Himself shall banquet thee. 8 But fruits must e'er thy faith approve; Thy neighbor thou must truly love; That love let him from thee receive, Which here to thee thy God doth give.

'Twas on that dark, that doleful night

Author: I. Watts Meter: Appears in 369 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 ’Twas on that dark, that doleful night, When powers of earth and hell arose Against the Son of God’s delight, And friends betrayed Him to His foes. 2 Before the mournful scene began, He took the bread, and blessed, and brake: What love through all His actions ran! What wondrous words of grace He spake! 3 "This is my body, broke for sin; Receive and eat the living food:" Then took the cup, and blessed the wine; "’Tis the new covenant in my blood." 4 "Do this," He said, "till time shall end, In memory of your dying Friend Meet at my table and record The love of your departed Lord." 5 Jesus, Thy feast we celebrate; We show Thy death, we sing Thy name, Till Thou return, and we shall eat The marriage supper of the Lamb.
