I Would Not Live Alway; I Ask Not to Stay

Author: William A. Mühlenberg Hymnal: LH1941 #588 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Job 7:16 Lyrics: 1 I would not live alway; I ask not to stay Where storm after storm rises dark o’er the way. The few lurid mornings that dawn on us here Suffice for life’s woes, are enough for its cheer. 2 I would not live always; thus fettered by sin, Temptation without and corruption within; E’en rapture of pardon is mingled with fears, The cup of thanksgiving with penitent tears. 3 I would not live alway; no, welcome the tomb: Since Jesus hath lain there, I dread not its gloom. There sweet be my rest till He bid me arise To hail Him in triumph descending the skies. 4 Ah, who would live alway, away from his God, Away from yon heaven, that blissful abode, Where rivers of pleasure flow o’er the bright plains And noontide of glory eternally reigns; 5 Where saints of all ages in harmony meet, Their Savior and brethren transported to greet, While anthems of rapture unceasingly roll, And smile of the Lord is the feast of the soul? Amen. Topics: The Last Things Death and Burial Languages: English Tune Title: MALDWYN

I Know that My Redeemer Lives

He lives, He lives, who once was dead; He lives, my everlasting Head. 2 He lives triumphant from the grave, He lives eternally to save, He lives all-glorious in the sky, He lives exalted there on high. 3 He lives to bless me with His love, He lives to plead for me above, He lives my hungry soul to feed, He lives to help in time of need. 4 He lives to grant me rich supply, He lives to guide me with His eye, He lives to comfort me when faint, He lives to hear my soul's complaint. 5 He lives to silence all my fears, He lives to wipe away my tears, He lives to calm my troubled heart, He lives all blessings to impart. 6 He lives, my kind, wise, heavenly Friend, He lives and loves me to the end; He lives, and while He lives, I'll sing; He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King. 7 He lives and grants me daily breath; He lives and I shall conquer death; He lives my mansion to prepare; He lives to bring me safely there. 8 He lives, all glory to His name! He lives, my Jesus, still the same. Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives, "I know that my Redeemer lives!" Amen. Topics: The Church Year Easter Languages: English Tune Title: DUKE STREET

Songs of Praise the Angels Sang

Author: James Montgomery Hymnal: LH1941 #35 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Job 38:7 Lyrics: 1 Songs of praise the angels sang, Heav'n with alleluias rang, When creation was begun, When God spake and it was done. 2 Songs of praise awoke the morn When the Prince of Peace was born; Songs of praise arose when He Captive led captivity. 3 Heav'n and earth must pass away; Songs of praise shall crown that day. God will make new heav'ns and earth; Songs of praise shall hail their birth. 4 And shall man alone be dumb Till that glorious kingdom come? No; the Church delights to raise Psalms and hymns and songs of praise. 5 Saints below, with heart and voice, Still in songs of praise rejoice; Learning here, by faith and love, Songs of praise to sing above. 6 Borne upon their latest breath, Songs of praise shall conquer death; Then, amidst eternal joy, Songs of praise their powers employ. Amen. Topics: Adoration Worship and Praise Languages: English Tune Title: INNOCENTS

Author: John M. Neale; St. Joseph the Hymnographer. d. 883 Hymnal: LH1941 #255 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Job 38:7 Lyrics: 1 Stars of the morning, so gloriously bright, Filled with celestial resplendence and light, These that, where night never followeth day, Praise the Thrice Holy One ever and aye. 2 These are Thy ministers, these dost Thou own, Lord God of Sabaoth, nearest Thy throne; These are Thy messengers, these dost Thou send, Help of the helpless ones, man to defend. 3 Then, when the earth was first poised in mid space, Then, when the planets first sped on their race, Then, when were ended the six days' employ, Then all the sons of God shouted for joy. 4 Still let them succor us, still let them fight, Lord of angelic hosts, battling for right, Till, where their anthems they ceaselessly pour, We with the angels may bow and adore.

The Man Is Ever Blest

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: LH1941 #414 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Psalm 1 Lyrics: 1 The man is ever blessed Who shuns the sinners’ ways, Among their councils never stands, Nor takes the scorners’ place, 2 But makes the Law of God His study and delight Amid the labors of the day, And watches of the night. 3 He like a tree shall thrive, With waters near the root; Fresh as the leaf his name shall live; His works are heav’nly fruit. 4 Not so th’ungodly race, They no such blessings find; Their hopes shall flee like empty chaff Before the driving wind. 5 How will they bear to stand Before that judgment seat Where all the saints, at Christ’s right hand, In full assembly meet? 6 He knows, and He approves The way the righteous go; But sinners and their works shall meet A dreadful overthrow. Amen. Topics: Sanctification (The Christian Life) New Obedience Languages: English Tune Title: ST. MICHAEL
