His Great Love

1 THE Lord of glory, moved by love, Descends, in mercy, from above; And He, before whom angels bow, Is found a man of grief below. 2 Such love is great, too great for thought, Its length and breadth in vain are sought; No tongue can tell its depth and height; The love of Christ is infinite....

Deity and Humanity of our Lord

1 ERE the blue heavens were stretch’d abroad, From everlasting was the Word: With God He was; the Word was God, And must divinely be adored. 2 By His own power were all things made; By Him supported all things stand; He is the whole creation’s head, And angels fly at His command. 3 Ere sin was born,...

Grace causing Love

1 WE love Thee, Lord, because when we Had err’d and gone astray, Thou didst recall our wandering souls Into the heavenward way. 2 When helpless, hopeless, we were lost In sin and sorrow’s night, Thou didst send forth a guiding ray Of Thy benignant light. 3 Because when we forsook Thy ways, Nor kept Thy holy will,...

Grace Acknowledged

1 WHEN I stand before the throne Dress’d in beauty not my own, When I see Thee as Thou art, Love Thee with unsinning heart, Then, Lord, shall I fully know— Not till then—how much I owe. 2 Chosen not for good in me, Waken’d up from wrath to flee, Hidden in the Saviour’s side, By the...

See Daylight Is Fading

1. See daylight is fading, o’er earth and o’er ocean, The sun has gone down on the far-distant sea; Oh, now in the hush of the fitful commotion We lift our tired spirits, blest Saviour, to Thee. 2. Full oft wast thou found afar on the mountain, As eventide spread her dark wing o’er the... Continue Reading →

O Gracious Shepherd

O gracious Shepherd, for thy simple flock By guileful goats to ravening wolves misled, Who thine own dear heart’s precious blood didst shed, And lamb-like offered to the butcher’s block: O gracious Shepherd, unremoving rock Of succor to all such as thither fled, Respect one of thy flock which followed These curséd goats, and doth...

Most Glorious Lord of Life

Most glorious Lord of life, that on this day Didst make thy triumph over death and sin, And having harrowed hell didst bring away Captivity thence captive, us to win: This joyous day, dear Lord, with joy begin, And grant that we for whom thou diddest die, Being with thy dear blood clean washed from...

Love Unfailing

1 NOW shall my inward joys arise, And burst into a song; Almighty love inspires my heart, And pleasure tunes my tongue. 2 God on His thirsty Sion-hill Some mercy drops has thrown, And solemn oaths have bound His love To shower salvation down. 3 Why do we then indulge our fears, Suspicions and complaints? Is He a... Continue Reading →

Grace Completing Its Work

1 TO God the only wise, Our Saviour and our King, Let all the saints below the skies Their humble praises bring. 2 His tried almighty love, His counsel and His care, Preserve us safe from sin and death, And every hurtful snare. 3 He will present our souls Unblemish’d and complete Before the glory of His face,...
