Amen.Topics: The RedeemerScripture: Psalm 23Languages: English

All men Living Are But Mortal

Publication Date: 1941Hymnal: The Lutheran Hymnal #601Meter: Number: 601First Line: All men living are but mortalLyrics: 1 All men living are but mortal, Yea, all flesh must fade as grass; Only thro' death’s gloomy portal To eternal life we pass. This frail body here must perish Ere the heav’nly love joys it cherish, Ere it gain the free reward For the ransomed of the Lord. 2 Therefore, when my God doth choose it, Willingly I’ll yield my life Nor will grieve that I should lose it, For with sorrows it was rife. In my dear Redeemer’s merit Peace hath found my troubled spirit, And in death my comfort this: Jesus’ death my source of bliss. 3 Jesus for my sake descended My salvation to obtain; Death and hell for me are ended, Peace and hope are now my gain; Yea, with joy I leave earth’s sadness For the home of heav’nly gladness, Where I shall forever see God, the Holy Trinity. 4 There is joy beyond our telling, Where so many saints have gone; Thousands, thousands, there are dwelling, Worshiping before the throne, There the seraphim are shining, Evermore in chorus joining: "Holy, holy, holy Lord! Triune God, for aye adored!" 5 Patriarchs of sacred story And the prophets there are found; The apostles, too, in glory On twelve seats are there enthroned. All the saints that have ascended Age on age, through time extended, There in blissful concert sing Hallelujahs to their King. 6 O Jerusalem, how glorious Dost thou shine, thou city fair! Lo, I hear the tones victorious Ever sweetly sounding there. Oh, the bliss that there surprises! Lo, the sun of morn now rises, And the breaking day I see That shall never end for me. 7 Yea, I see what here was told me, See that wondrous glory shine, Feel the spotless robes enfold me, Know a golden crown is mine. Thus before the throne so glorious Now I stand a soul victorious, Gazing on that joy for aye That shall never pass away. Amen.Topics: The Last Things Death and BurialScripture: Isaiah 40:6Languages: German; English

The Will of God Is Always Best

Publication Date: 1941Hymnal: The Lutheran Hymnal #517Hymnal Number: 517First Line: The will of God is always bestLyrics: 1 The will of God is always best And shall be done forever; And they who trust in Him are blest, He will forsake them never. He helps indeed In time of need, He chastens with forbearing; They who depend On God, their Friend, Shall not be left despairing. 2 God is my Comfort and my Trust, My Hope and Life abiding; And to His counsel, wise and just, I yield, in Him confiding. The very hairs, His Word declares, Upon my head He numbers. By night and day God is my Stay, He never sleeps nor slumbers. 3 Lord Jesus, this I ask of Thee, Deny me not this favor: When Satan sorely troubles me, Then do not let me waver. Keep watch and ward, O gracious Lord, Fulfil Thy faithful saying: Who doth believe He shall receive An answer to his praying. 4 When life's brief course on earth is run And I this world am leaving, Grant me to say: "Thy will be done," By faith to Thee still cleaving. My heav'nly Friend, I now commend My soul into Thy keeping, O'er sin and hell, And death as well, Thro' Thee the vict'ry reaping. Amen.Topics: Cross and ComfortScripture: Matthew 6:10Languages: German; English

Lord of Glory, Who hast Bought Us

Publication Date: 1941Hymnal: The Lutheran Hymnal #442Meter: DHymnal Number: 442First Line: Lord of Glory, who hast bo't usLyrics: 1 Lord of Glory, who hast bo't us With Thy life-blood as the price, Never grudging for the lost ones That tremendous sacrifice; And with that hast freely given Blessings countless as the sand To th'unthankful and the evil With Thine own unsparing hand; 2 Grant us hearts, dear Lord, to yield Thee Gladly, freely, of Thine own; With the sunshine of Thy goodness Melt our thankless hearts of stone Till our cold and selfish natures, Warmed by Thee, at length believe That more happy and more blessed 'Tis to give than to receive. 3 Wondrous honor hast Thou given To our humblest charity In Thine own mysterious sentence, "Ye have done it unto Me." Can it be, O gracious Master, Thou dost deign for alms to sue, Saying by Thy poor and needy, "Give as I have giv'n to you"? 4 Yes, the sorrow and the sufferings Which on every hand we see Channels are for gifts and offerings Due by solemn right to Thee; Right of which we may not rob Thee, Debt we may not choose but pay, Lest that face of love and pity Turn from us another day. 5 Lord of Glory, who hast bought us With Thy life-blood as the price, Never grudging for the lost ones That tremendous sacrifice. Give us faith to trust Thee boldly, Hope, to stay our souls on Thee; But, oh! best of all Thy graces, Give us Thine own charity. Amen.Topics: Sanctification (The Christian Life) StewardshipScripture: Acts 20:35Languages: English

'Tis finished, all is finished, Their fight with death and sin: Fling open wide the golden gates, And let the victors in. 2 What rush of alleluias Fills all the earth and sky! What ringing of a thousand harps Bespeaks the triumph nigh! O day, for which creation And all its tribes were made; O joy, for all its former woes A thousand fold repaid! 3 Oh, then what raptured greetings On Canaan's happy shore; What knitting severed friendships up, Where partings are no more! Then eyes with joy shall sparkle, That brimmed with tears of late; Orphans no longer fatherless, Nor widows desolate. 4 Bring near Thy great salvation, Thou Lamb for sinners slain; Fill up the roll of Thine elect, Then take Thy pow'r and reign. Appear, Desire of Nations; Thine exiles long for home. Show in the heav'ns Thy promised sign; Thou Prince and Savior, come! Amen.Topics: The Church Communion of SaintsScripture: Revelation 7:17Languages: English

Publication Date: 1941Hymnal: The Lutheran Hymnal #574Meter: DHymnal Number: 574First Line: Come, ye thankful people, comeLyrics: 1 Come, ye thankful people, come; Raise the song of Harvest-home. All be safely gathered in Ere the winter storms begin; God, our Maker, doth provide For our wants to be supplied. Come to God's own temple, come; Raise the song of Harvest-home. 2 All the world is God's own field, Fruit unto His praise to yield; Wheat and tares together sown, Unto joy or sorrow grown; First the blade and then the ear, Then the full corn shall appear. Lord of harvest, grant that we Wholesome grain and pure may be. 3 For the Lord, our God, shall come And shall take His harvest home; From His field shall in that day All offenses purge away; Give His angels charge at last In the fire the tares to cast, But the fruitful ears to store In His garner evermore. 4 Even so, Lord, quickly come To Thy final Harvest-home; Gather Thou Thy people in, Free from sorrow, free from sin, There, forever purified, In Thy garner to abide. Come with all Thine angels, come, Raise the glorious Harvest-home. Amen. Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary #461Scripture: Isaiah 9:8Languages: English
