Philip. 2:6-12: Ye who the name of Jesus bear

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R52Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Ye who the name of Jesus bearLyrics: Ye who the name of Jesus bear, his sacred steps pursue; And let that mind which was in him be also found in you. Though in the form of God he was, his only Son declared, Nor to be equally adored as robb’ry did regard; His greatness he for us abased, for us his glory vailed; In human likeness dwelt on earth, his majesty concealed: Nor only as a man appears, but stoops a servant low; Submits to death, nay, bears the cross, in all its shame and woe. Hence God this gen’rous love to men with honours just hath crowned, And raised the name of Jesus far above all names renowned: That at this name, with sacred awe, each humble knee should bow Of hosts immortal in the skies, and nations spread below: That all the prostrate pow’rs of hell might tremble at his word, And ev’ry tribe, and ev’ry tongue, confess that he is Lord. Scripture: Philippians 2:6-12Languages: English

Take comfort, Christians, when your friends

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R53Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Take comfort, Christians, when your friendsLyrics: Take comfort, Christians, when your friends in Jesus fall asleep; Their better being never ends; why then dejected weep? Why inconsolable, as those to whom no hope is giv’n? Death is the messenger of peace, and calls the soul to heav’n. As Jesus died, and rose again victorious from the dead; So his disciples rise, and reign with their triumphant Head. The time draws nigh, when from the clouds Christ shall with shouts descend, And the last trumpet’s awful voice the heav’ns and earth shall rend. Then they who live shall changed be, and they who sleep shall wake; The graves shall yield their ancient charge, and earth’s foundations shake. The saints of God, from death set free, with joy shall mount on high; The heav’nly hosts with praises loud shall meet them in the sky, Together to their Father’s house with joyful hearts they go; And dwell for ever with the Lord, beyond the reach of woe. A few short years of evil past, we reach the happy shore, where death-divided friends at last shall meet, to part no more. Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18Languages: English

I'm not ashamed to own my Lord

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R54Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: I'm not ashamed to own my LordLyrics: I’m not ashamed to own my Lord, or to defend his cause, Maintain the glory of his cross, and honour all his laws. 145 Jesus, my Lord! I know his name, his name is all my boast; Nor will he put my soul to shame, nor let my hope be lost. I know that safe with him remains, protected by his pow’r, What I’ve committed to his trust, till the decisive hour. Then will he own his servant’s name before his Father’s face, And in the New Jerusalem appoint my soul a place. Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:12Languages: English

My race is run; my warfare's o'er

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R55Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: My race is run; my warfare's o'erLyrics: My race is run; my warfare’s o’er; the solemn hour is nigh, When, offered up to God, my soul shall wing its flight on high. With heav’nly weapons I have fought the battles of the Lord; Finished my course, and kept the faith, depending on his word. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown which cannot fade; The righteous Judge at that great day shall place it on my head. Nor hath the Sov’reign Lord decreed this prize for me alone; But for all such as love like me th’ appearance of his Son. From ev’ry snare and evil work his grace shall me defend, And to his heav’nly kingdom safe shall bring me in the end. Scripture: 2 Timothy 4:18Languages: English

Titus 3:3-9: How wretched was our former state

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R56Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: How wretched was our former stateLyrics: How wretched was our former state, when, slaves to Satan’s sway, With hearts disordered and impure, o’erwhelmed in sin we lay! But, O my soul! for ever praise, for ever love his name, Who turned thee from the fatal paths of folly, sin, and shame. Vain and presumptuous is the trust which in our works we place, Salvation from a higher source flows to the human race. ’Tis from the mercy of our God that all our hopes begin; His mercy saved our souls from death, and washed our souls from sin. His Spirit, through the Saviour shed, its sacred fire imparts, Refines our dross, and Love divine rekindles in our hearts. Thence raised from death, we live anew; and, justified by grace, We hope in glory to appear, and see our Father’s face. Let all who hold this faith and hope in holy deeds abound; Thus faith approves itself sincere, by active virtue crowned. Scripture: Titus 3:3-9Languages: English

Heb. 4:14-16: Jesus, the Son of God, who once

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R57Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Jesus, the Son of God, who onceLyrics: Jesus, the Son of God, who once for us his life resigned, Now lives in heav’n, our great High Priest, and never-dying friend. Through life, through death, let us to him with constancy adhere; Faith shall supply new strength, and hope shall banish ev’ry ear. To human weakness not severe is our High Priest above; His heart o’erflows with tenderness, his bowels melt with love. 146 With sympathetic feelings touched, he knows our feeble frame; He knows what sore temptations are, for he has felt the same. But though he felt temptation’s pow’r, unconquered he remained; Nor, ‘midst the frailty of our frame, by sin was ever stained. As, in the days of feeble flesh, he poured forth cries and tears; So, though exalted, still he feels what ev’ry Christian bears. Then let us, with a filial heart, come boldly to the throne Of grace supreme, to tell our griefs, and all our wants make known: That mercy we may there obtain for sins and errors past, And grace to help in time of need, while days of trial last. Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16Languages: English

Heb. 4:14-16: Where high the heav'nly temple stands

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R58Meter: 8.8.8.8First Line: Where high the heav'nly temple standsLyrics: Where high the heav’nly temple stands, The house of God not made with hands, A great High Priest our nature wears, The guardian of mankind appears. He who for men their surety stood, And poured on earth his precious blood, Pursues in heav’n his mighty plan, The Saviour and the friend of man. Though now ascended up on high, He bends on earth a brother’s eye; Partaker of the human name, He knows the frailty of our frame. Our fellow-suff’rer yet retains A fellow-feeling of our pains; And still remembers in the skies His tears, his agonies, and cries. In ev’ry pang that tends the heart, The Man of sorrows had a part; He sympathizes with our grief, And to the suff’rer sends relief. With boldness, therefore, at the throne, Let us make all our sorrows known; And ask the aids of heav’nly pow’r To help us in the evil hour. Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16Languages: English

Heb. 12:1-13: Behold what witnesses unseen

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R59Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Behold what witnesses unseenLyrics: Behold what witnesses unseen encompass us around; Men, once like us, with suff’ring tried, but now with glory crowned. Let us, with zeal like theirs inspired, begin the Christian race, And, freed from each encumb’ring weight, their holy footsteps trace. Behold a witness nobler still, who trod affliction’s path, Jesus, at once the finisher and author of our faith. He for the joy before him set, so gen’rous was his love, Endured the cross, despised the shame, and now he reigns above. If he the scorn of wicked men with patience did sustain, Becomes it those for whom he died to murmur or complain? Have ye like him to blood, to death, the cause of truth maintained? And is your heav’nly Father’s voice forgotten or disdained? 147 My son, saith he, with patient mind endure the chast’ning rod; Believe, when by afflictions tried, that thou art loved by God. His children thus most dear to him their heav’nly Father trains, Through all the hard experience led of sorrows and of pains. We know he owns us for his sons, when we correction share; Nor wander as a bastard race, without our Father’s care. A father’s voice with rev’rence we on earth have often heard; The Father of our spirits now demands the same regard. Parents may err; but he is wise, nor lifts the rod in vain His chast’nings serve to cure the soul by salutary pain. Affliction, when it spreads around, may seem a field of woe; Yet there, at last, the happy fruits of righteousness shall grow. Then let our hearts no more despond, our hands be weak no more; Still let us trust our Father’s love, his wisdom still adore. Scripture: Hebrews 12:1-13Languages: English

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R60Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Father of peace, and God of love!Lyrics: Father of peace, and God of love! we own thy pow’r to save, That pow’r by which our Shepherd rose victorious o’er the grave. Him from the dead thou brought’st again, when, by his sacred blood, Confirmed and sealed for evermore, th’ eternal cov’nant stood. O may thy Spirit seal our souls, and mould them to thy will, That our weak hearts no more may stray, but keep thy precepts still; That to perfection’s sacred height we nearer still may rise, And all we think, and all we do, be pleasing in thine eyes. Scripture: Hebrews 13:20-21Languages: English

When from the dead he raised his Son, and called him to the sky, He gave our souls a lively hope that they should never die. To an inheritance divine he taught our hearts to rise; ’Tis uncorrupted, undefiled, unfailing in the skies. Saints by the pow’r of God are kept till the salvation come: We walk by faith as strangers here; but Christ shall call us home. Scripture: 1 Peter 1:3-5Languages: English
