Hymn 15

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 157 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:7 First Line: Let me but hear my Savior say Lyrics: Let me but hear my Savior say, "Strength shall be equal to thy day," Then I rejoice in deep distress, Leaning on all-sufficient grace. I glory in infirmity, That Christ's own power may rest on me: When I am weak, then am I strong, Grace is my shield, and Christ my song. I can do all things, or can bear All suff'rings, if my Lord be there; Sweet pleasures mingle with the pains, While his left hand my head sustains. But if the Lord be once withdrawn, And we attempt the work alone, When new temptations spring and rise, We find how great our weakness is. [So Samson, when his hair was lost, Met the Philistines to his cost; Shook his vain limbs with sad surprise, Made feeble fight, and lost his eyes.]

Meter: Appears in 2,102 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9 First Line: How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord Lyrics: 1 How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in his excellent word! What more can he say than to you he hath said, to you who for refuge to Jesus have fled? 2 "Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed, for I am thy God, and will still give thee aid; I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand, upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand. 3 "When through the deep waters I call thee to go, the rivers of sorrow shall not overflow; for I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless, and sanctify to thee thy deepest distress. 4 "When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie, my grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply; the flame shall not hurt thee, I only design thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine. 5 "The soul that on Jesus still leans for repose, I will not, I will not desert to its foes; that soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, I'll never, no, never, no, never forsake!"

How sweet the sound Lyrics: 1 Amazing grace! how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me!

Jesus, lover of my soul

Author: Charles Wesley (1707-1788) Meter: D Appears in 3,153 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9 Lyrics: 1 Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to thy bosom fly, while the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high. Hide me, O my Saviour, hide, till the storm of life is past; safe into the haven guide, oh, receive my soul at last! 2 Other refuge have I none, hangs my helpless soul on thee; leave, ah! leave me not alone, still support and comfort me. All my trust on thee is stayed, all my help from thee I bring; cover my defenceless head with the shadow of thy wing. 3 Thou, O Christ, art all I want; more than all in thee I find! Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, heal the sick, and lead the blind. Just and holy is thy name, I am all unrighteousness; false and full of sin I am, thou art full of truth and grace. 4 Plenteous grace with thee is found, grace to cover all my sin; let the healing streams abound, make and keep me pure within. Thou of life the fountain art, freely let me take of thee; spring thou up within my heart, rise to all eternity.

Spirit of God, Descend upon My Heart

Author: George Croly Meter: Appears in 338 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9 Lyrics: 1 Spirit of God, descend upon my heart; wean it from earth, through all its pulses move; stoop to my weakness, mighty as thou art, and make me love thee as I ought to love. 2 I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies, no sudden rending of the veil of clay, no angel visitant, no opening skies; but take the dimness of my soul away. 3 Hast thou not bid us love thee, God and King, all, all thine own, soul, heart and strength and mind? I see thy cross– there teach my heart to cling: O let me seek thee, and O let me find. 4 Teach me to feel that thou art always nigh; teach me the struggles of the soul to bear, to check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; teach me the patience of unanswered prayer. 5 Teach me to love thee as thine angels love, one holy passion filling all my frame; the baptism of the heaven-descended Dove, my heart an altar, and thy love the flame.
