When All Your Mercies, O My God

Author: Joseph Addison Hymnal: TH1990 #56 (1990) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Person Name: Joseph Addison Lyrics: 1 When all your mercies, O my God, my rising soul surveys, transported with the view, I'm lost in wonder, love, and praise. 2 Unnumbered comforts to my soul your tender care bestowed, before my infant heart conceived from whom those comforts flowed. 3 When worn with sickness, oft have you with health renewed my face; and when in sins and sorrows sunk, revived my soul with grace. 4 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts my daily thanks employ; nor is the least a cheerful heart that tastes those gifts with joy. 5 Through ev'ry period of my life your goodness I'll pursue; and after death, in distant worlds, the glorious theme renew. 6 Through all eternity to you a joyful song I'll raise; for oh, eternity's too short to utter all your praise.

The Spacious Firmament on High

Author: Joseph Addison Hymnal: TH1990 #117 (1990) Meter: 8.8.8.8 D Person Name: Joseph Addison Lyrics: 1 The spacious firmament on high, with all the blue ethereal sky, and spangled heav'ns, a shining frame, their great Original proclaim. Th'unwearied sun, from day to day does his Creator's power display, and publishes to ev'ry land the work of an almighty hand. 2 Soon as the evening shades prevail, the moon takes up the wondrous tale, and nightly to the list'ning earth repeats the story of her birth; whilst all the stars that round her burn, and all the planets in their turn, confirm the tidings as they roll, and spread the truth from pole to pole. 3 What though in solemn silence all move round this dark terrestrial ball? What though no real voice nor sound amidst their radiant orbs be found? In reason's ear they all rejoice, and utter forth a glorious voice; forever singing, as they shine, "The hand that made us is divine."

God is Working His Purpose Out

Author: Arthur Campbell Ainger Hymnal: TH1990 #74 (1990) Meter: Irregular Person Name: Arthur Campbell Ainger Lyrics: 1 God is working his purpose out as year succeeds to year: God is working his purpose out, and the time is drawing near; nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be, when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. 2 From utmost east to utmost west, where human feet have trod, by the mouth of many messengers goes forth the voice of God: "Give ear to me, you continents, ye isles, give ear to me," that the earth may be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. 3 March we forth in the strength of God, with the banner of Christ unfurled, that the light of the glorious gospel of truth may shine throughout the world: fight we the fight with sorrow and sin to set their captives free, that the earth may be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. 4 All we can do is nothing worth unless God blesses the deed; vainly we hope for the harvest-tide till God gives life to the seed; yet nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be, when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.

Once in Royal David's City

Author: Cecil F. Alexander Hymnal: TH1990 #225 (1990) Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 Person Name: Cecil F. Alexander Lyrics: 1 Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed, where a mother laid her baby in a manger for his bed: Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. 2 He came down to earth from heaven who is God and Lord of all, and his shelter was a stable, and his cradle was a stall: with the poor, and mean, and lowly, lived on earth our Savior holy. 3 And through all his wondrous childhood he would honor and obey, love and watch the lowly maiden in whose gentle arms he lay: Christian children all must be mild, obedient, good as he. 4 And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love; for that child so dear and gentle is our Lord in heav'n above, and he leads his children on to the place where he is gone. 5 Not in that poor lowly stable, with the oxen standing by, we shall see him, but in heaven, set at God's right hand on high; when like stars his children crowned all in white shall wait around.

Saw You Never, in the Twilight

Author: Cecil F. Alexander Hymnal: TH1990 #228 (1990) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Person Name: Cecil F. Alexander Lyrics: 1 Saw you never, in the twilight, when the sun had left the skies, up in heav'n the clear stars shining through the gloom, like silver eyes? So of old the wise men, watching, saw a little stranger star, and they knew the King was given, and they followed it from far. 2 Heard you never of the story how they crossed the desert wild, journeyed on by plain and mountain till they found the holy child? How they opened all their treasure, kneeling to that infant King; gave the gold and fragrant incense, gave the myrrh in offering? 3 Know ye not that lowly baby was the bright and morning Star? He who came to light the Gentiles and the darkened isles afar? And we, too, may seek his cradle; there our hearts' best treasures bring; love and faith and true devotion for our Savior, God, and King.

There Is a Green Hill Far Away

Author: Cecil F. Alexander Hymnal: TH1990 #256 (1990) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Person Name: Cecil F. Alexander Lyrics: 1 There is a green hill far away, without a city wall, where the dear Lord was crucified, who died to save us all. 2 We may not know, we cannot tell, what pains he had to bear; but we believe it was for us he hung and suffered there. 3 He died that we might be forgiv'n, he died to make us good, that we might go at last to heav'n, saved by his precious blood. 4 There was no other good enough to pay the price of sin; he only could unlock the gate of heav'n, and let us in. 5 O dearly, dearly has he loved, and we must love him too, and trust in his redeeming blood, and try his works to do.

Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand

Author: Henry Alford Hymnal: TH1990 #323 (1990) Meter: 7.6.8.6 D Person Name: Henry Alford Lyrics: 1 Ten thousand times ten thousand in sparkling raiment bright, the armies of the ransomed saints throng up the steeps of light: '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 O 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'n thy promised sign; thou Prince and Savior, come.
