Ah, What Can I Do?

Author: John Newton Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: Ah, what can I do, or where be secure? Lyrics: 1. Ah, what can I do, or where be secure? If justice pursue, what heart can endure? When God speaks in thunder and makes Himself known, The heart breaks asunder though hard as a stone. 2. With terror I read my sins’ heavy score, The numbers exceed the sands on the shore; Guilt makes me unable to stand or to flee, So Cain murdered Abel, and trembled like me. 3. Each sin, like his blood, with terrible cry, Calls loudly on God to strike from on high: Nor can my repentance, extorted by fear, Reverse the just sentence; ’tis just, though severe. 4. The case is too plain, I have my own choice; Again, and again I slighted His voice; His warnings neglected, His patience abused, His Gospel rejected, His mercy refused. 5. And must I then go, forever to dwell In torments and woe with devils in hell? Oh where is the Savior I scorned in times past? His word in my favor would save me at last. 6. Lord Jesus, on Thee I venture to call, Oh look upon me, the vilest of all! For whom didst Thou languish and bleed on the tree? Oh pity my anguish, and say, ’Twas for thee. 7. A case such as mine will honor Thy power; All hell will repine, all Heav’n will adore; If in condemnation strict justice takes place, It shines in salvation more glorious through grace.

The Heavens Declare thy Glory

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 592 hymnals First Line: The heav’ns declare Thy glory, Lord Lyrics: 1 The heav’ns declare Thy glory, Lord, In every star Thy wisdom shines; But when our eyes behold Thy Word, We read Thy name in fairer lines. 2 The rolling sun, the changing light, And nights and days, Thy power confess: But the blest volume Thou hast writ Reveals Thy justice and Thy grace. 3 Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise Round the whole earth, and never stand: So when Thy truth begun its race, It touched and glanced on every land. 4 Nor shall Thy spreading Gospel rest Till through the world Thy truth has run, Till Christ has all the nations blest That see the light, or feel the sun. 5 Great Sun of Righteousness, arise, Bless the dark world with heav’nly light; Thy Gospel makes the simple wise, Thy laws are pure, Thy judgments right. 6 Thy noblest wonders here we view In souls renewed and sins forgiv’n; Lord, cleanse my sins, my soul renew, And make Thy Word my guide to Heav’n.

As Shadows Lengthen

Author: Richard W. Adams Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: As shadows lengthen and the night grows cold Lyrics: 1. As shadows lengthen and the night grows cold, Not seeing how life’s pages will unfold, Give us Your peace as, yielding to Your will, We trust the Author loves and keeps us still. 2. One thing we pray, when evening round us falls, Show us the place on memory’s darkened walls, As dimming eye and failing flesh grow weak, Show us where pictures of Your love still speak, 3. That we may tell to generations new, Tell of a faithfulness forever true, Tell of a power that keeps us to the end, Tell of our God, protector, guide and friend. 4. Then, when our task is done and comes the wing Of death’s bright angel, teach us how to sing, With soaring confidence to mount on high, Flying to golden streets beyond the sky. Used With Tune: EVENTIDE

Each blessing to my soul more dear, Because conferred by Thee. 4. In every joy that crowns my days, In every pain I bear, My heart shall find delight in praise, Or seek relief in prayer. 5. When gladness wings my favored hour, Thy love my thoughts shall fill; Resigned, when storms of sorrow lower, My soul shall meet Thy will. 6. My lifted eye, without a tear, The gathering storm shall see: My steadfast heart shall know no fear; That heart will rest on Thee. Used With Tune: SIMPSON Text Sources: Poems, 1786

Ascribe to the Lord Our God

We hear Your voice and worship in holiness. 3. God’s voice breaks the cedars tall; He strips all the forests bare. The mountains He shakes; they skip just like a calf. His glory all declare. We hear Your voice and worship in holiness. 4. The voice of the Lord does strike With flashes of lightning bright. The voice of the Lord does shake the desert sands; The deer give birth in fright. We hear Your voice and worship in holiness. 5. The Lord o’er the flood did reign; As King, He’s fore’er enthroned. The Lord gives His people strength for every day; With peace, they’re blessed and crowned. You’ve blessed us, Lord; we worship in holiness. Used With Tune: MARION

Why Do We Mourn Departing Friends?

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 522 hymnals First Line: Why do we mourn departing friends Lyrics: 1. Why do we mourn departing friends, Or shake at death’s alarms? ’Tis but the voice that Jesus sends To call them to His arms. 2. Are we not tending upward, too, As fast as time can move? Nor would we wish the hours more slow To keep us from our love. 3. Why should we tremble to convey Their bodies to the tomb? There the dear flesh of Jesus lay, And left a long perfume. 4. The graves of all His saints He blessed, And softened every bed; Where should the dying members rest, But with the dying Head? 5. Thence He arose, ascending high, And showed our feet the way; Up to the Lord our flesh shall fly, At the great rising day. 6. Then let the last loud trumpet sound, And bid our kindred rise; Awake, ye nations under ground; Ye saints, ascend the skies. Used With Tune: DUNDEE Text Sources: Hymns and Spiritual Songs, 1707

Laden with Guilt, and Full of Fears

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 192 hymnals Lyrics: 1. Laden with guilt, and full of fears, I fly to Thee, my Lord, And not a glimpse of hope appears But in Thy written Word. 2. The volume of my Father’s grace Does all my griefs assuage; Here I behold my Savior’s face Almost in every page. 3. This is the field where hidden lies The pearl of price unknown; That merchant is divinely wise Who makes the pearl his own. 4. Here consecrated water flows To quench my thirst of sin; Here the fair tree of knowledge grows, Nor danger dwells therein. 5. This is the Judge that ends the strife Where wit and reason fail, My guide to everlasting life Through all this gloomy vale. 6. O may Thy counsels, mighty God, My roving feet command; Nor I forsake the happy road That leads to Thy right hand. Used With Tune: ST.

Thus Far the Lord Hath Led Me On

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 657 hymnals Lyrics: Thus far the Lord hath led me on, Thus far His power prolongs my days, And every evening shall make known Some fresh memorial of His grace. Much of my time has run to waste, And I, perhaps, am near my home; But He forgives my follies past, 1. And gives me strength for days to come. I lay my body down to sleep; Peace is the pillow for my head; While well appointed angels keep Their watchful stations round my bed. 2. In vain the sons of earth or hell Tell me a thousand frightful things My God in safety makes me dwell Beneath the shadow of His wings. 3. Faith in His name forbids my fear; O may Thy presence ne’er depart! And in the morning make me hear The love and kindness of Thy heart. 4. Thus, when the night of death shall come, My flesh shall rest beneath the ground, And wait Thy voice to rouse my tomb, With sweet salvation in the sound.
