All my hope on God is founded

Author: Robert Bridges (1844-1930); Joachim Neander (1650-1680) Meter: Appears in 62 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 15:1 Lyrics: 1 All my hope on God is founded; all my trust he will renew; safe through change and chance he guides me, only good and only true: God unknown, he alone calls my heart to be his own. 2 Human pride and earthly glory, sword and crown betray God's trust; though with care and toil we build them, tower and temple fall to dust. But God's power, hour by hour, is my temple and my tower. 3 God's great goodness lasts for ever, deep his wisdom, passing thought; splendour, light and life attend him, beauty springing out of naught. Evermore from his store new-born worlds rise and adore. 4 Day by day the mighty Giver showers gifts on us below; his desire our souls delight in, pleasure leads us where we go. See love stand at his hand, joy awaits at his command! 5 Still from earth to God in heaven sacrifice of praise be done, high above all praises praising for the gift of Christ his Son. Hear Christ call one and all: those who follow shall not fall. Topics: Our Response to God in adoration and gratitude; Change; Hope; Providence Used With Tune: GROESWEN

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

Author: Edmund Hamilton Sears Meter: D Appears in 759 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 15:1 Lyrics: 1 It came upon the midnight clear, that glorious song of old, from angels bending near the earth, to touch their harps of gold: “Peace on the earth, good will to all, from heaven’s all-gracious King”: the world in solemn stillness lay, to hear the angels sing. 2 Still through the cloven skies they come, with peaceful wings unfurled, and still their heavenly music floats o’er all the weary world: above its sad and lowly plains they bend on hovering wing, and ever o’er its Babel sounds the blessed angels sing. 3 Yet with the woes of sin and strife the world has suffered long; beneath the heavenly hymn have rolled two thousand years of wrong; and we at war on earth hear not the tidings that they bring; O, hush the noise and cease the strife to hear the angels sing! 4 And you, beneath life’s crushing load, whose forms are bending low, who toil along the climbing way with painful steps and slow, look now, for glad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing: O, rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing. 5 For lo, the days are hastening on, by prophets seen of old, when with the ever-circling years shall come the time foretold, when peace shall over all the earth its ancient splendors fling, and the whole world give back the song which now the angels sing.

Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme

Author: Isaac Watts, 1674-1748 Meter: Appears in 280 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 15:5 Lyrics: 1 Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme and speak some boundless thing, the mighty works or mightier name, of our eternal king. 2 Tell of his wondrous faithfulness, and sound his power abroad; sing the sweet promise of his grace and our fulfilling God. 3 His very word of grace is strong as that which built the skies; the voice that rolls the stars along speaks all the promises. 4 He said, "Let wide the heaven be spread,' and heaven was stretched abroad; 'Abram, I'll be your God,' he said and he was Abram's God. 5 O might I hear your heavenly tongue but whisper, 'You are mine'; those gentle words should raise my song to notes almost divine. 6 How would my leaping heart rejoice, and think my heaven secure! I trust the all-creating voice, and faith desires no more.
