My Song Is Love Unknown

Author: Samuel Crossman Meter: Appears in 101 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 15:31 Lyrics: 1 My song is love unknown, my Savior’s love to me, love to the loveless shown that they might lovely be. O who am I, that for my sake my Lord should take frail flesh, and die? 2 He came from his blest throne all made strange, and none the longed-for Christ would know. But, O, my Friend, my fFiend indeed, who at my need his life did spend! 3 Sometimes they strew his way, and his strong praises sing, resounding all the way Hosannas to their King. Then “Crucify!” is all their breath, and for his death they thirst and cry. 4 Why, what hath my Lord done? What makes this rage and spite? He made the lame to run, he gave the blind their sight. Sweet injuries! Ye they at these themselves displease, and 'gainst him rise. 5 They rise, and needs will have my dear Lord made away; a murderer they save, the Prince of life they slay. Yet cheerful he to suff'ring goes, that he his foes from thence might free. 6 In life, no house, no home my Lord on earth might have; in death, no friendly tomb but what a stranger gave. What may I say? Heaven was his home, but mine the tomb wherein he lay. 7 Here might I stay and sing, no story so divine: never was love, dear King, never was grief like thine. This is my Friend, in whose sweet praise I all my days could gladly spend. Topics: Jesus Christ Passion and Cross Used With Tune: LOVE UNKNOWN

Your Hands, O Lord, in Days of Old

Author: Edward Hayes Plumptre (1821-1891) Meter: D Appears in 147 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 15:21-28 Lyrics: 1 Your hands, O Lord, in days of old were strong to heal and save; they triumphed over pain and death, o'er darkness and the grave. To you they went, the blind, the mute, the palsied and the lame, the leper set apart and shunned, the sick with fevered frame. 2 And then your touch brought life and health, gave speech and strength and sight; and youth renewed, with health restored, claimed you, the Lord of light. And so, O Lord, be near to bless, almighty now as then, in every street, in every home, in every troubled friend. 3 O be our mighty healer still, O Lord of life and death; restore and strengthen, soothe and bless with your almighty breath. On hands that work and eyes that see, your healing wisdom pour, that whole and sick and weak and strong may praise you evermore. Topics: Healing; Epiphany (season) Used With Tune: ST. MICHAEL'S
