Hymn 125

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 391 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 4:15-16 First Line: With joy we meditate the grace Lyrics: With joy we meditate the grace Of our High Priest above; His heart is made of tenderness, His bowels melt with love. Touched with a sympathy within, He knows our feeble frame; He knows what sore temptations mean, For he has felt the same. But spotless, innocent, and pure, The great Redeemer stood, While Satan's fiery darts he bore, And did resist to blood. He in the days of feeble flesh Poured out his cries and tears, And in his measure feels afresh What every member bears. [He'll never quench the smoking flax, But raise it to a flame; The bruised reed he never breaks, Nor scorns the meanest name.] Then let our humble faith address His mercy and his power; We shall obtain deliv'ring grace In the distressing hour.

Heb. 4:14-16: Where high the heav'nly temple stands

Meter: Appears in 186 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16 First Line: Where high the heav'nly temple stands Lyrics: Where high the heav’nly temple stands, The house of God not made with hands, A great High Priest our nature wears, The guardian of mankind appears. He who for men their surety stood, And poured on earth his precious blood, Pursues in heav’n his mighty plan, The Saviour and the friend of man. Though now ascended up on high, He bends on earth a brother’s eye; Partaker of the human name, He knows the frailty of our frame. Our fellow-suff’rer yet retains A fellow-feeling of our pains; And still remembers in the skies His tears, his agonies, and cries. In ev’ry pang that tends the heart, The Man of sorrows had a part; He sympathizes with our grief, And to the suff’rer sends relief. With boldness, therefore, at the throne, Let us make all our sorrows known; And ask the aids of heav’nly pow’r To help us in the evil hour.

Come, You Disconsolate

Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish; earth has no sorrows that heaven cannot heal. 2 Joy of the desolate, light of the straying, hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure! Here speaks the Comforter, in mercy saying, "Earth has no sorrows that heaven cannot cure." 3 Here see the bread of life; see waters flowing forth from the throne of God, pure from above. Come to the feast prepared; come, ever knowing earth has no sorrows but heaven can remove.

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

Author: John Newton, 1725-1807 Meter: Appears in 1,430 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16 Lyrics: 1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer's ear! It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds, and drives away our fear. 2 It makes the wounded spirit whole and calms the troubled breast, is manna to the hungry soul and to the weary rest. 3 Dear name! the rock on which I build, my shield and hiding-place, my never-failing treasury, filled with boundless stores of grace: 4 Jesus, my shepherd, brother, friend, my prophet, priest and king, my Lord, my life, my way, my end, accept the praise I bring. 5 Weak is the effort of my heart, and cold my warmest thought; but when I see you as you are I'll praise you as I ought.

Approach, My Soul, the Mercy Seat

Author: John Newton Meter: Appears in 566 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16 Lyrics: 1 Approach, my soul, the mercy seat where Jesus answers prayer; there humbly fall before his feet, for none can perish there. 2 Thy promise is my only plea; with this I venture nigh: thou callest burdened souls to thee, and such, O Lord, am I. 3 Bowed down beneath a load of sin, by Satan sorely pressed, by war without, and fears within, I come to thee for rest. 4 Be thou my shield and hiding place, that, sheltered near thy side, I may my fierce accuser face, and tell him thou hast died. 5 O wondrous love! to bleed and die, to bear the cross and shame, that guilty sinners, such as I, might plead thy gracious name!

There's a wideness in God's mercy

Author: Frederick William Faber (1814-1863) Meter: Appears in 791 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16 Lyrics: 1 There’s a wideness in God’s mercy like the wideness of the sea; there’s a kindness in his justice, which is more than liberty. 2 There is no place where earth's sorrows are more felt than in God's heaven: there is no place where earth's failings have such kindly judgment given. 3 For the love of God is broader than the measure of the mind; and the heart of the Eternal is most wonderfully kind. 4 If our love were but more faithful, we should take him at his word; and our life be filled with glory from the glory of the Lord.
