My Song Is Love Unknown

Author: Samuel Crossman, c. 1624-1683 Meter: 6.6.6.6.4.4.4.4 Appears in 110 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 27 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 Salvation to bestow; But men made strange, and none The longed-for Christ would know. But, oh, my Friend, my Friend indeed, Who at my need His life did spend! 3 Sometimes they strew His way, And His sweet 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 mad the lame to run, He gave the blind their sight. Sweet injuries! is all their breath, Themselves displease and 'gainst him rise. 5 They rise, and needs will have My dear Lord made away; A murderer they saved, The Prince of life they slay, Yet cheerful He to suff'ring goes, That He His foes from thence might free. Topics: Sunday of the Passion; Lent Used With Tune: LOVE UNKNOWN

Come, Ye Faithful, Raise the Strain

Author: J. M. Neale; St. John of Damascus Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 361 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 27:66 Lyrics: 1 Come, ye faithful, raise the strain of triumphant gladness; God hath brought his Israel into joy from sadness: loosed from Pharoah's bitter yoke Jacob's sons and daughters led them with unmoistened foot through the Red Sea waters. 2 'Tis the spring of souls today: Christ hath burst his prison, and from three days' sleep in death as a sun hath risen. All the winter of our sins, long and dark, is flying from his light, to whom we give laud and praise undying. 3 Now the queen of seasons, bright with the day of splendor, with the royal feast of feasts, comes its joy to render; comes to glad Jerusalem, who with true affection welcomes in unwearied strains Jesus' resurrection. 4 Neither might the gates of death, nor the tomb's dark portal, nor the watchers, nor the seal hold thee as a mortal: but today amidst thine own thou didst stand, bestowing thine own peace which evermore passeth human knowing.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 1,841 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 27 Lyrics: 1 When I survey the wondrous cross on which the 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 death of Christ, my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them through 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 a present far too small. Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.
