Hymn 119

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 114 hymnals Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:23-24 First Line: Christ and his cross is all our theme Lyrics: Christ and his cross is all our theme; The myst'ries that we speak Are scandal in the Jew's esteem, And folly to the Greek. But souls enlightened from above With joy receive the word; They see what wisdom, power, and love Shine in their dying Lord. The vital savor of his name Restores their fainting breath; But unbelief perverts the same To guilt, despair, and death. Till God diffuse his graces down, Like showers of heav'nly rain, In vain Apollos sows the ground, And Paul may plant in vain.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Author: Isaac Watts (1674-1748) Meter: Appears in 1,771 hymnals Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 Lyrics: 1 When I survey the wondrous cross where the young Prince of glory died, my richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride. 2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, save in the cross of Christ, my God; all the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to his blood. 3 See, from his head, his hands, his feet, sorrow and love flow mingled down; did e’er such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose so rich a crown? 4 Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were an offering far too small; love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.

Here hangs a man discarded

Author: Brian Arthur Wren, 1936- Meter: Appears in 6 hymnals Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25 Lyrics: 1 Here hangs a man discarded, a scarecrow hoisted high, a nonsense pointing nowhere to all who hurry by. 2 Can such a clown of sorrows still bring a useful word when faith and love seem phantoms and every hope absurd? 3 Can he give help or comfort to lives by comfort bound, where drums of dazzling progress give strangely hollow sound? 4 Life emptied of all meaning, drained out in bleak distress, can share in broken silence our deepest emptiness; 5 and love that freely entered the pit of life's despair can name our hidden darkness and suffer with us there. 6 Christ, in our darkness risen, help all who long for light to hold the hand of promise, and walk into the night.

Nature with Open Volume Stands

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 139 hymnals Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:24 Lyrics: 1 Nature with open volume stands to spread her Maker's praise abroad; and ev'ry labor of his hands shows something worthy of a God. 2 But in the grace that saved the world his brightest form of glory shines; see on the cross the tale unfold, in precious blood, and crimson lines. 3 Here his whole name appears complete, nor wit can guess, nor reason prove, which of the letters best is writ, the power, the wisdom, or the love. 4 O the sweet wonders of that cross where Christ my Savior loved and died! Her noblest life my spirit draws from his dear wounds and bleeding side. 5 I would forever speak his name in sounds to mortal ears unknown, with angels join to praise the Lamb, and worship at his Father's throne.

Hymn 98

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 137 hymnals Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:30 First Line: How heavy is the night Lyrics: How heavy is the night That hangs upon our eyes, Till Christ with his reviving light Over our souls arise! Our guilty spirits dread To meet the wrath of Heav'n; But, in his righteousness arrayed, We see our sins forgiv'n. Unholy and impure Are all our thoughts and ways; His hands infected nature cure With sanctifying grace. The powers of hell agree To hold our souls in vain; He sets the sons of bondage free, And breaks the cursed chain Lord, we adore thy ways To bring us near to God; Thy sovereign power, thy healing grace, And thine atoning blood.
