Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

Author: Charles Wesley Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 1,634 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17 Lyrics: 1 Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heav'n to earth come down; fix in us thy humble dwelling, all thy faithful mercies crown. Jesus, thou art all compassion, pure, unbounded love thou art; visit us with thy salvation, enter ev'ry trembling heart. 2 Come almighty to deliver; let us all thy life receive; suddenly return and never, nevermore thy temples leave. Thee we would be always blessing, serve thee as thy hosts above, pray and praise thee without ceasing, glory in thy perfect love. 3 Finish then thy new creation; pure and spotless let us be; let us see thy great salvation perfectly restored in thee, changed from glory into glory, till in heaven we take our place, till we cast our crowns before thee, lost in wonder, love, and praise!

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Author: Robert Robinson Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 1,995 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:14 Lyrics: 1 Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above; praise his name--I’m fixed upon it-- name of God's redeeming love. 2 Here I raise my Ebenezer, hither by thy help I’ve come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, bought me with his precious blood. 3 O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be! Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee: prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here’s my heart, O take and seal it; seal it for thy courts above.

Our God is marching on.

If on a quiet sea

Author: Toplady Meter: 6.6.8.6 Appears in 220 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:7 Lyrics: 1 If on a quiet sea Toward heaven we calmly sail, With grateful hearts, O God, to thee, We'll own the fav'ring gale. 2 But should the surges rise, And rest delay to come, Blest be the sorrow, kind the storm, Which drives us nearer home. 3 Soon shall our doubts and fears All yield to thy control: Thy tender mercies shall illume The midnight of the soul. 4 Teach us, in every state, To make thy will our own; And when the joys of sense depart, To live by faith alone.

Hymn 110

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 199 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:5-8 First Line: There is a house not made with hands Lyrics: There is a house not made with hands, Eternal and on high; And here my spirit waiting stands, Till God shall bid it fly. Shortly this prison of my clay Must be dissolved and fall; Then, O my soul! with joy obey Thy heav'nly Father's call. 'Tis he, by his almighty grace, That forms thee fit for heav'n; And, as an earnest of the place, Has his own Spirit giv'n. We walk by faith of joys to come, Faith lives upon his word; But while the body is our home, We're absent from the Lord. 'Tis pleasant to believe thy grace, But we had rather see; We would be absent from the flesh, And present, Lord, with thee.
