Ah, holy Jesus, how have you offended

Author: Robert Seymour Bridges (1844-1930); Johann Heermann (1585-1647); St Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109) Meter: Appears in 131 hymnals Matching Instances: 77 Lyrics: 1 Ah, holy Jesus, how have you offended, that man to judge you has in hate pretended? by foes derided, by your own rejected, O most afflicted. 2 Who was the guilty? who brought this upon you? It is my treason, Lord, that has undone you; and I, O Jesus, it was I denied you, I crucified you. 3 See how the Shepherd for the sheep is offered, the slave has sinned, and yet the Son hath suffered; for our atonement hangs the saviour bleeding, God interceding. 4 For me, kind Jesus, was your incarnation, your dying sorrow and your life's oblation; your bitter passion and your desolation, for my salvation. 5 O mighty Saviour, I cannot repay you, I do adore you, and will here obey you: recall your mercy and your love unswerving, not my deserving.

O Dearest Jesus

Author: J. Heermann, 1585-1647; C. Winkworth, 1827-78 Meter: Appears in 22 hymnals Matching Instances: 10 First Line: O dearest Jesus, what law hast Thou broken Lyrics: 1 O dearest Jesus, what law hast Thou broken That such sharp sentence should on Thee be spoken? Of what great crime hast Thou to make confession-- What dark transgression? 2 They crown Thy head with thorns, they smite, they scourge Thee; With cruel mockings to the cross they urge Thee; They give Thee gall to drink, they still decry Thee; They crucify Thee. 3 Whence come these sorrows, whence this mortal anguish? It is my sins for which Thou, Lord, must languish; Yea, all the wrath, the woe, Thou dost inherit, This I do merit. 4 What punishment so strange is suffered yonder! The Shepherd dies for sheep that loved to wander; The Master pays the debt His servants owe Him, Who would not know Him. 5 The sinless Son of God must die in sadness; The sinful child of man may live in gladness; Man forfeited his life and is acquitted-- God is committed. 6 There was no spot in me by sin untainted; Sick with sin's poison, all my heart had fainted; My heavy guilt to hell had well-nigh brought me, Such woe it wrought me. 7 O wondrous love, whose depth no heart hath sounded, That brought Thee here, by foes and thieves surrounded! All worldly pleasures, heedless, I was trying While Thou wert dying. 8 O mighty King, no time can dim Thy glory! How shall I spread abroad Thy wondrous story? How shall I find some worthy gifts to proffer? What dare I offer? 9 For vainly doth our human wisdom ponder-- Thy woes, Thy mercy, still transcend our wonder. Oh, how should I do aught that could delight Thee! Can I requite Thee? 10 Yet unrequited, Lord, I would not leave Thee; I will renounce whate'er doth vex or grieve Thee And quench with thoughts of Thee and prayers most lowly All fires unholy. 11 But since my strength will nevermore suffice me To crucify desires that still entice me, To all good deeds, O let Thy Spirit win me And reign within me! 12 I'll think upon Thy mercy without ceasing, That earth's vain joys to me no more be pleasing; To do Thy will shall be my sole endeavor Henceforth forever. 13 Whate'er of earthly good this life may grant me, I'll risk for Thee; no shame, no cross, shall daunt me. I shall not fear what man can do to harm me Nor death alarm me. 14 But worthless is my sacrifice, I own it; Yet, Lord, for love's sake Thou wilt not disown it; Thou wilt accept my gift in Thy great meekness Nor shame my weakness. 15 And when, dear Lord, before Thy throne in heaven To me the crown of joy at last is given, Where sweetest hymns Thy saints forever raise Thee, I, too, shall praise Thee.

Herzliebster Jesu

Author: Johann Heerman Meter: Appears in 58 hymnals Matching Instances: 4 First Line: Herzliebster Jesu, was hast du verbrochen Lyrics: 1 Herzliebster Jesu, was hast du verbrochen, Daß man ein solch scharf Urteil hat gesprochen? Was ist die Schuld? In was für Missetaten Bist du geraten? 2 Du wirst verspeit, geschlagen und verhöhnet, Gegeißelt und mit Dornen scharf gekrönet, Mit Essig, als man dich ans Kreuz gehenket, Wirst du getränket. 3 Was ist die Ursach’ aller solcher Plagen? Ach, meine Sünden haben dich geschlagen! Ich, ach Herr Jesu, habe dies verschuldet, Was du erduldet. 4 Wie wunderbarlich ist doch diese Strafe! Der gute Hirte leidet für die Schafe, Die Schuld bezahlt der Herre, der Gerechte, Für seine Knechte. 5 Der Fromme stirbt, so recht und richtig wandelt; Der Böse lebt, so wider Gott misshandelt; Der Mensch verwirkt den Tod und ist entgangen, Gott wird gefangen. 6 Ich war von Fuß auf voller Schand’ und Sünden, Bis zu dem Scheitel war nichts Gut’s zu finden; Dafür hätt’ ich dort in der Hölle müßen Ewiglich büßen. 7 O große Lieb’, o Lieb’ ohn’ alle Maße, Die dich gebracht auf diese Marterstraße! Ich lebte mit der Welt in Lust und Freuden, Und du mußt leiden. 8 Ach, großer König, groß zu allen Zeiten, Wie kann ich g’nugsam solche Treu’ ausbreiten! Kein menschlich Herze mag sich dies ausdenken, Was dir zu schenken. 9 Ich kann’s mit meinen Sinnen nicht erreichen, Mit was doch dein Erbarmen zu vergleichen; Wie kann ich dir denn deine Liebestaten Im Werk erstatten? 10 Doch ist noch etwas, das dir angenehme: Wenn ich des Fleisches Lüste dämpf’ und zähme, Daß sie aufs neu’ mein Herze nicht entzünden Mit alten Sünden. 11 Weil aber dies nicht steht in eignen Kräften, Dem Kreuze die Begierden anzuheften, So gib mir deinen Geist, der mich regiere, Zum Guten führe! 12 Alsdann so werd’ ich deine Huld betrachten, Aus Lieb’ zu dir die Welt für nichts erachten. Ich werde mich bemühen, deinen Willen Stets zu erfüllen. 13 Ich werde dir zu Ehren alles wagen, Kein Kreuz nicht achten, keine Schmach noch Plagen, Nichts von Verfolgung, nichts von Todesschmerzen Nehmen zu Herzen. 14 Dies alles, ob’s für schlecht zwar ist zu schätzen, Wirst du es doch nicht gar beiseite setzen. In Gnaden wirst du dies von mir annehmen, Mich nicht beschämen. 15 Wenn dort, Herr Jesu, wird vor deinem Throne Auf meinem Haupte stehn die Ehrenkrone, Da will ich dir, wenn alles wird wohl klingen, Lob und Dank singen.

Now God be with us, for the night is closing

Meter: Appears in 189 hymnals Matching Instances: 2 Lyrics: 1 Now God be with us, for the night is closing; The light and darkness are of His disposing; And 'neath His shadow here to rest we yield us, For He will shield us. 2 Let evil thoughts and spirits flee before us; Till morning cometh, watch, O Father, o'er us; In soul and body Thou from harm defend us, Thine angels send us. 3 Let pious thoughts be ours when sleep overtakes us; Our earliest thoughts be Thine when morning wakes us; All day serve Thee, in all that we are doing Thy praise pursuing. 4 Through Thy Beloved soothe the sick and weeping, And bid the captive lose his griefs in sleeping; Widows and orphans, we to Thee commend them, Do thou befriend them. 5 We have no refuge, none on earth to aid us, Save Thee, O Father, who Thine own hast made us; But Thy dear presence will not leave them lonely Who seek Thee only. 6 Father, Thy name be praised, Thy kingdom given; Thy will be done on earth, as 'tis in heaven; Give daily bread; forgive our sins; deliver Us now and ever.

Where is the Friend?

Author: Johan Olof Wallin, 1779-1839 Meter: Appears in 9 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 First Line: Where is the Friend for whom I'm ever yearning? Lyrics: 1 Where is the Friend for whom I'm ever yearning? My longing grows when day to night is turning; And though I find Him not as day recedeth, My heart still pleadeth. 2 I know He's there in every force and power, Where waves the harvest and where blooms the flower; I'm ever in my breath and sighs so burning, His love discerning. 3 When summer winds blow gently, then I hear Him; Where sing the birds, where rush the streams I'm near Him; But better far when in my heart He blesses Me with caresses. 4 And yet to hide Him oft a cloud prevaileth; My prayer can reach Him, but my vision faileth. Would I could see His face and heart so loving, And cease my roving. 5 Oh, where such beauty is itself revealing In all that lives, through all creation stealing, What must the source be whence it comes, the Giver! Beauty forever. Topics: Death and Resurrection Used With Tune: HERZLIEBSTER JESU, WAS HAST DU VERBROCHEN

O Lord, Our Father, shall We be Confounded

Author: Catherine Winkworth; Johann Heermann Meter: Appears in 7 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 O Lord, our Father, shall we be confounded Who, tho' by trials and by woes surrounded, On Thee alone for help are still relying, To Thee are crying? 2 Lord, put to shame Thy foes who breathe defiance And vainly make their might their sole reliance; In mercy turn to us, the poor and stricken, Our hope to quicken. 3 Be Thou our Helper and our strong Defender; Speak to our foes and cause them to surrender. Yea, long before their plans have been completed, They are defeated. 4 'Tis vain to trust in man; for Thou, Lord, only Art the Defense and Comfort of the lonely. With Thee to lead, the battle shall be glorious And we victorious. 5 Thou art our Hero, all our foes subduing; Save Thou Thy little flock they are pursuing. We seek Thy help; for Jesus' sake be near us. Great Helper, hear us! Amen. Topics: The Church Year Reformation Scripture: Psalm 22:5 Used With Tune: HERZLIEBSTER JESU
