I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger

Author: Richard W. Adams Appears in 53 hymnals Matching Instances: 17 Refrain First Line: I’m only going over Jordan Lyrics: 1. I am a poor wayfaring stranger, While traveling through this world of woe. Yet there’s no sickness, toil nor danger In that bright world to which I go. I’m going there to see my Father; I’m going there no more to roam. Refrain I’m only going over Jordan, I’m only going over home. 2. I know dark clouds will gather round me; I know my way is rough and steep. But golden fields lie out before me Where God’s redeemed shall ever sleep. I’m going there to see my mother, She said she’d meet me when I come. [Refrain] 3. I’ll soon be free from every trial, My body sleep in the churchyard; I’ll drop the cross of self denial And enter on my great reward. I’m going there to see my Savior, To sing His praise forevermore.

When God First Brought Us Back (Psalm 126)

Author: Carl P. Daw Jr Meter: 9.8.9.8 D Appears in 5 hymnals Matching Instances: 5 First Line: When God first brought us back from exile Lyrics: 1 When God first brought us back from exile, we were as dazed as those who dream. Then were our mouths brimming with laughter; joy from our lips gushed like a stream. The godless cried in envious wonder, “Look what the Lord has done for them!” Indeed our God has greatly blessed us; rejoice and sing, Jerusalem! 2 Once more, O Lord, restore your people; come with your saving help again, as to the brook beds in the desert you bring the sweet, reviving rain. Let those who sow with tears and sighing sing as they reap and joy proclaim: may those who weep when seed is scattered gather their sheaves and praise your name.

From Highest Heaven

Author: Neil Barham Appears in 1 hymnal Matching Instances: 1 First Line: The call goes out from highest Heaven Lyrics: 1. The call goes out from highest Heaven, From that great Voice whose vast decree Calls out of nothing all creation, And brings to birth eternity. Go down, My Son, go down from Heaven, Bring My belovèd home to Me. Go find her, lost, abandoned, ruined, Storm-tossed in sin’s relentless sea. 2. Now speaks the Prince of highest Heaven, Whose light no seraph can endure— Who owns the glories of the Godhead By right and title all-secure. Yes, I will go, go down from Heaven, To find our lost, our wand’ring bride, I’ll bring her home, whate’er it cost Me— I’ll bring her home, though I must die. 3. Now see Him plunge from highest Heaven, Through light-years dark, to virgin’s womb, Enfleshed in dust and human weakness: A body destined for a tomb. A long, long way from highest Heaven, He walks the ground from which He made The Man whose sons He has come seeking, The captives Satan has betrayed. 4. With tears He cries to highest Heaven, Lord, let this cup now pass from Me! His blood pours down His sweating forehead; At horror’s brink, oh, what He sees! But He submits to highest Heaven, Not Mine, but Thy own will be done. He rises, strengthened by an angel: Ahead there’s battle to be won. 5. The mighty wrath of highest Heaven Falls down upon bright Heaven’s Son. A rage omnipotent and righteous Burns down upon the chosen One. The Enemy of highest Heaven With snarling teeth and slashing claw, With howls of savage accusation, Calls down the curses of the Law! 6. Before the bar of highest Heaven, The Son of God convicted stands; My guilty conscience burns within Him Because my crimes are on His hands. The sentence falls from highest Heaven, Unleashing Hell upon His own, The Second Death consumes the Sacrifice. So perfect mercy can be shown. 7. Again the Voice of highest Heaven Speaks life into a three-days’ grave, And there triumphant, death defeating,1 The God-man comes, mighty to save! He will return from highest Heaven, Ten million angels in His train: He’ll claim the blood-bought bride He ransomed, To love while highest Heav’n remains. 8. 1Originally, And there, triumphant over sin and death Used With Tune: WAYFARING STRANGER

O LORD My God, My Only Refuge

Author: Joel Stamoolis Meter: 9.8.9.8 D Appears in 1 hymnal Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 O LORD my God, my only refuge, save me from those who seek my life or they will tear me like a lion; LORD, quickly end this bitter strife. But if my hands have done them evil or if their cause is truly just, then let them come and overtake me and lay my glory in the dust. 2 Rise up, O LORD, in righteous anger for you have set a judgment time. Let all the peoples gather round you; enthroned on high, you will preside. O let the evil of the wicked by your great might remain confined, but let the righteous be established, for you discern both heart and mind. 3 If anyone is unrepentant, God's sword is sharp, his bow is bent; the pit they dug will be their downfall, their sin will land upon their heads. But I will thank the LORD of heaven, all that he does is always right; yes, I will sing his name forever, the righteous God, the LORD Most High.
