I ask Thee to stay Close by me forever, and love me, I pray; Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care, And fit us for heaven, to live with Thee there.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

Author: Phillips Brooks, 1835-93 Appears in 707 hymnals Lyrics: 1 O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep, The silent stars go by; Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light; The hopes and fears of all the years, Are met in thee tonight. 2 O morning stars, together Proclaim the holy birth, And praises sing to God the King, And peace to men on earth. For Christ is born of Mary; And gathered all above, While mortals sleep the angels keep Their watch of wond'ring love. 3 How silently, how silently, The wondrous gift is giv'n! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of His heav'n. No ear may hear His coming, But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive Him, still The dear Christ enters in. 4 O holy Child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray; Cast out our sin, and enter in; Be born in us today. We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel. Topics: Christmas Used With Tune: FOREST GREEN

Chorus: So I'll cherish the old rugged cross, Till my trophies at last I lay down; I will cling to the old rugged cross, And exchange it some day for a crown. 2 O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world, Has a wondrous attraction for me; For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above To bear it to dark Calvary.[Chorus] 3 In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine, Such a wonderful beauty I see; For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died To pardon and sanctify me.[Chorus] 4 To the old rugged cross I will ever be true; It's shame and reproach gladly bear. Then He'll call me some day to my home far away, Where His glory forever I'll share. [Chorus] Topics: Passion and Cross Used With Tune: [On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross]

Author: Horatius Bonar, 1808-1889 Appears in 267 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face, Here would I touch and handle things unseen, Here grasp with firmer hand eternal grace, And all my weariness upon Thee lean. 2 Here would I feed upon the bread of God, Here drink with Thee the royal wine of heav'n, Here would I lay aside each earthly load, Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiv'n. 3 I have no help but Thine, nor do I need Another arm save Thine to lean upon; It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed - My strength is in Thy might, Thy might alone. 5 Mine is the sin, but Thine the righteousness, Mine is the guilt, but Thine the cleansing blood; Here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace, Thy blood, Thy righteousness, O Lord my God.

According to Thy Gracious Word

Author: James Montgomery, 1771-1854 Appears in 490 hymnals Lyrics: 1 According to Thy gracious word, In meek humility, This will I do, my loving Lord: I will remember Thee. 2 The body, broken for my sake, My bread from heav'n shall be: Thy testamental cup I take, And thus remember Thee. 3 Gethsemane can I forget? Or there Thy conflict see, Thine agony and bloody sweat, And not remember thee? 4 When to the cross I turn mine eyes And rest on Calvary, O Lamb of God, my sacrifice, I must remember Thee - 5 Remember Thee and all Thy pains And all Thy love to me; Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains, Will I remember Thee. 6 And when these failing lips grow dumb, And mind and mem'ry flee, When Thou shalt in Thy Kingdom come, Jesus, remember me!
