Behold, The Lord To Zion Rides

Meter: D Appears in 3 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Behold, the Lord to Zion rides, And crowds hosannas sing; They spread their garments in the way, And hail Him as a king. 2 O Zion, blind with earthly pride, Why couldst thou not behold The Christ of God, whom sage and seer From age to age foretold? 3 A king indeed, but not to reign By power of earthly might; The glory of whose royal state Is hid from carnal sight. 4 Whose subjects are the souls of men From thrall of darkness won; Whose kingdom knows no bounds, within The dawn and setting sun. 5 Behold thy king to Zion rides Where He the cross shall bear; And on that throne with blood bedecked, His robe of purple wear; 6 Where slaves to sin His love shall view, And from their bondage rise To noble fealty, by the power Of loving sacrifice.

The Race Of God's Anointed Priests

Author: Emma Bevan; Gerhard Tersteegen Meter: D Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: The race of God’s anointed priests Lyrics: 1 The race of God’s anointed priests Shall never pass away; Before His glorious face they stand, And serve Him night and day. Though reason raves, and unbelief Flows on, a mighty flood, They are, and shall be, till the end The hidden priests of God. 2 His chosen souls, their earthly dross Consumed in sacred fire, To God’s own heart their hearts ascend In flame of deep desire; The incense of their worship fills His temple’s holiest place; Their song with wonder fills the heavens, The glad new song of grace.

On Thee, O God Of Purity

Author: Charles Wesley Meter: D Appears in 5 hymnals First Line: On Thee, O God of purity! Lyrics: 1 On Thee, O God of purity! We wait for hallowing grace: None, without holiness, shall see The glories of Thy face. In souls, unholy and unclean, Thou never canst delight; We cannot, if enslaved by sin, Appear before Thy sight. 2 Behold us, Lord! with humble fear, Approach Thy temple’s gate, Though most unworthy to draw near, Or in Thy courts to wait; But trusting in Thy boundless grace, To us so freely given, We worship in the holy place, And lift our souls to Heaven. 3 Lead us in all Thy righteous ways; Nor let our footsteps slide; Make straight Thy path before our face, And be our guard and guide. No more to sin, Lord! let us yield, Defended from above, And kept and covered with the shield Of Thine almighty love. Used With Tune: ALIDA Text Sources: Psalm and Hymns 1743; This is a cento from a longer hymn beginning "O Lord, incline Thy gracious ear"

Sovereign Of Heaven, Thine Empire Spreads

Author: Philip Doddridge, 1702-1751 Meter: D Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: Sov’reign of Heaven, Thine empire spreads Lyrics: 1 Sov’reign of Heaven, Thine empire spreads, O’er all the worlds on high: And at Thy frowns th’infernal powers In wild confusion fly. 2 Like lightning from his glittering throne The great arch-traitor fell, Driv’n with enormous ruin down To infamy and hell. 3 Permitted now to range at large, And traverse earth and air, O’er captive human souls he reigns, And boasts his kingdom there. 4 Yet thence Thy grace can drive him out, With one almighty word; O send Thy potent scepter forth, And reign victorious, Lord. 5 Let wretched prisoners be released, The smiling light to view; Nor let the vanquished foe return Their bondage to renew. 6 May grace complete that wondrous work, Which Thine own power begun; And fill, from Satan’s gloomy realms, The kingdom of Thy son.

Come, Celebrate the Call of God

Author: Brian Wren Meter: D Appears in 3 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Come, celebrate the call of God that wakens and renews, and chooses from us, for our good, the bringers of good news. The Spirit's blessing all ordains to show what God has done, yet brings to focus and contains the many in the one. 2 A chosen one today replies, and fit and ready stands. *Her calling now we recognize with prayer and loving hands. A servant leader, truthful friend, we gladly will receive, to stir and comfort, shake and mend, be glad with us, and grieve. 3 Great Spirit, give *her word and breath in Christ to live and speak, and shield against the pow'rs of death the outcast and the weak, *her flag of faith, above defeats, in heaven's breeze unfurled, as all her deepest gladness meets the hunger of the world. *for her, read him when appropriate Topics: Ordination and Installation; Installation; Ministry; Ordination Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 Used With Tune: ALIDA'S TUNE

Give Thanks To God, Invoke His Name

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: D Appears in 65 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Give thanks to God, invoke His name, And tell the world His grace; Sound through the earth His deeds of fame, That all may seek His face. His covenant, which He kept in mind For numerous ages past, To numerous ages yet behind In equal force shall last. 2 He swore to Abraham and his seed, And made the blessing sure; Gentiles the ancient promise read, And find His truth endure. Thy seed shall make all nations blessed, Said the almighty voice, And Canaan’s land shall be their rest, The type of heav’nly joys. 3 How large the grant! How rich the grace, To give them Canaan’s land, When they were strangers in the place, A little feeble band! Like pilgrims through the countries round Securely they removed; And haughty kings that on them frowned Severely He reproved. 4 Touch Mine anointed, and My arm Shall soon revenge the wrong: The man that does My prophets harm, Shall know their God is strong. Then let the world forbear its rage, Nor put the church in fear; Israel must live through every age, And be th’Almighty’s care. 5 When Pharaoh dared to vex the saints, And thus provoked their God, Moses was sent at their complaints, Armed with his dreadful rod. He called for darkness; darkness came Like an o’erwhelming flood; He turned each lake and every stream To lakes and streams of blood. 6 He gave the sign and noisome flies Through the whole country spread; And frogs in croaking armies rise About the monarch’s bed. Through fields, and towns, and palaces, The tenfold vengeance flew; Locusts in swarms devoured their trees, And hail their cattle slew. 7 Then by an angel’s midnight stroke The flower of Egypt died; The strength of every house was broke, Their glory and their pride. Now let the world forbear its rage, Nor put the church in fear; Israel must live through every age, And be th’Almighty’s care. 8 Thus were the tribes from bondage brought, And left the hated ground; Each some Egyptian spoils had got, And not one feeble found. The Lord Himself chose out their way, And marked their journeys right; Gave them a leading cloud by day, A fiery guide by night. 9 They thirst, and waters from the rock In rich abundance flow; And following still the course they took, Ran all the desert through. O wondrous stream! O blessed type Of ever flowing grace! So Christ, our Rock, maintains our life Through all this wilderness. 10 Thus guarded by th’almighty hand, The chosen tribes possessed Canaan, the rich, the promised land, And there enjoyed their rest. Then let the world forbear its rage, The church renounce her fear; Israel must live through every age, And be th’Almighty’s care. Used With Tune: ALIDA Text Sources: The Psalms of David, 1719

How Awful Is Thy Chastening Rod

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: D Appears in 30 hymnals Lyrics: 1. How awful is Thy chastening rod! May Thy own children say: The great, the wise, the dreadful God! How holy is His way! I’ll meditate His works of old, The King that reigns above; I’ll hear His ancient wonders told, And learn to trust His love. 2. Long did the house of Joseph lie With Egypt’s yoke oppressed; Long He delayed to hear their cry, Nor gave His people rest. The sons of good old Jacob seemed Abandoned to their foes; But His almighty arm redeemed The nation that He chose. 3. Israel, His people and His sheep, Must follow where He calls; He bade them venture through the deep, And made the waves their walls. The waters saw Thee, mighty God! The waters saw Thee come; Backward they fled, and frighted stood, To make Thine armies room. 4. Strange was Thy journey through the sea Thy footsteps, Lord, unknown; Terrors attend the wondrous way That brings Thy mercies down. Thy voice, with terror in the sound, Through clouds and darkness broke; All Heav’n in lightning shone around, And earth with thunder shook. 5. Thine arrows through the skies were hurled; How glorious is the Lord! Surprise and trembling seized the world, And His own saints adored. He gave them water from the rock, And safe, by Moses’ hand, Through a dry desert led His flock Home to the promised land. Used With Tune: ALIDA Text Sources: The Psalms of David, 1719
