O Thou, The Helpless Orphan's Hope

Author: William B. Collyer, 1782-1854 Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 19 hymnals First Line: O Thou, the helpless orphan’s hope Lyrics: 1 O Thou, the helpless orphan’s hope To whom alone my eyes look up In each distressing day! Father (for that’s the sweetest name That e’er these lips were taught to frame), Instruct this heart to pray. 2 Low in the dust my parents lie, And no attentive ear is nigh But Thine, to mark my woe; No hand to wipe away my tears, No gentle voice to hush my fears, Remains to me below. 3 To Heav’n my earthly friends are gone, And thither are my comforts flown, But I continue here; Be Thou my pattern, Thou my guide; This friendless heart from sorrow hide, Reposing on Thy care.

O Righteous, in the Lord Rejoice

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 8 hymnals First Line: O righteous in the Lord rejoice Lyrics: 1 O righteous, in the Lord rejoice; how pleasant that with joyful voice God's saints his name should praise. With harp and hymn of gladness sing, your gift of sweetest music bring, to him a new song raise. 2 Let all the earth the Lord God fear; let all who dwell both far and near in awe before him stand! For, lo, he spoke and it was done, and all, with sov'reign pow'r begun, stood firm at his command. 3 The Lord God from his throne on high looks down with clear and searching eye on all that dwell below. And he that fashioned heart and mind looks ever down on humankind the works of all to know. 4 His eye is on all those who fear; to those who hope, the Lord is near according to his word. Death cannot touch those in his hand, nor trouble conquer in the land; we wait upon the Lord.

O Happy Land, Whose Sons in Youth

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 11 hymnals Lyrics: 1 O happy land, whose sons in youth, In sturdy strength and noble truth, Like plants in vigor spring; Whose daughters fair, a queenly race, Are like the cornerstones that grace The palace of a king, The palace of a king. 2 O happy land, when flock and field Their rich, abundant increase yield, And blessings multiply; When plenty all thy people share, And no invading foe is there, And no distressful cry, And no distressful cry. 3 O happy people, favored land, To whom the Lord with liberal hand Has thus His goodness shown; Yea, surely is that people blest By whom Jehovah is confessed To be their God alone, To be their God alone.

Fret not Thyself, nor Envious Be

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 7 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Fret not thyself, nor envious be, When wicked workers thou shalt see, Who prosper in their way; For like the grass they perish soon, And, like the herb cut down at noon, They wither in a day. 2 Trust in the Lord and still do well, Within the land securely dwell, Feed on His faithfulness; Delight thee also in the Lord, And to thy heart He will accord The good it would possess. 3 Yea, to the Lord thy way is know; Confide in Him Who on the throne Abides in power divine; Thy righteousness He shall display; Resplendent as the light of day, It shall unclouded shine. 4 Rest in the Lord and be thou still, With patience wait His holy will, Enduring to the end. Fret not though sinners’ gains increase; Forsake thy wrath, from anger cease; It will to evil tend. 5 The evil-doer soon shall die, But those that on the Lord rely Shall all the land obtain. A little while and thou shalt see That wicked man cut off shall be, They shall be sought in vain. 6 Yea, thou shalt soon consider well The place where they were wont to dwell, And it shall not be found; But saints shall all the land possess, And find delight and happiness Where fruits of peace abound. 7 The vile may plot against the just Who in the Lord Jehovah trust, But God will scorn them all; The Lord their coming day shall see, When broken all their power shall be, And ruin on them fall.

Lord, hear my voice, my prayer attend

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 19 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Lord, hear my voice, my prayer attend; from earth's remotest bound I send my supplicating cry. When troubles great o'erwhelm my breast, then lead me on the rock to rest that higher is than I. 2 In thee my soul has shelter found, and thou hast been from foes around the tower of my defence. My home shall thy pavilion be; to covert of thy wings I'll flee, and find deliverance. 3 For thou, O Lord, my vows hast heard; on me the heritage conferred of those that fear thy name. Long life thou to the king wilt give; through generations he shall live, from age to age the same. 4 Before the Lord shall he abide; O do thou truth and grace provide to guard him in the way. So I thy praises will make known, and humbly bending at thy throne, my vows will daily pay. Scripture: Psalm 61 Used With Tune: MANNA

I Want the Weeping Prophet's Heart

Author: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788 Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 2 hymnals Lyrics: 1 I want the weeping prophet's heart: O might my Lord to me impart Thy bleeding sympathy! On me, Thou Man of griefs, bestow The spring of tears, the depth of woe, The love that was in Thee. 2 I would our desolate Sion mourn By vile intestine vipers torn, By endless tempests tost, A Babel of religious strife, Buried in forms, whose power and life Of godliness is lost. 3 Or if Thou hast a few restored, Yet stranger to their bleeding Lord The multitude remain, Dead to a God they never knew, People, and priests, and princes too Are numbered with the slain. 4 For these I would in secret grieve, Their burden all day long receive, For these incessant pray, And many a mournful vigil keep, Water my couch with tears, and weep My pensive life away. 5 Only regard my dying cries, And bid the ruin'd church arise Which more than life I love, Call all her sons out of their grave, And this whole house of Israel save To sing Thy praise above.
