Breathing after Heavenly Things

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #XCIII (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: To thee, my God, I hourly sigh Lyrics: 1 To thee, my GOD, I hourly sigh, But not for golden stores; Nor covet I the brightest gems, On the rich eastern shores. 2 Nor that deluding empty joy, Men call a mighty name; Nor greatness in it gayest forms, My restless thoughts enflame. 3 Nor pleasure's soft enticing charms, My fond desires allrue; Far greater things than earth can yield, My wishes would secure. 4 Those blissful, those transporting smiles, That brighten Heav'n above; The boundless riches of thy grace, And treasures of thy love. 5 These are the mighty things I crave: O! make these blessings mine; And all the glories of the world I gladly will resign.

Christ's Intercession

Author: Toplady Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #LXIII (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: Awake, sweet gratitude and sing Lyrics: 1 Awake, sweet gratitude and sing, Th' ascended Saviour's love; Sing how he lives to carry on, His people's cause above. 2 For all that come to God by him, Salvation he demands; Points to their names upon his breast, And spreads his wounded hands. 3 His sweet atoning sacrifice, Gives sanction to his claim: "Father, I will that all my saints, "Be with me where I am: 4 "By their salvation, recompense, "Th sorrows I endur'd; "Just to the merits of thy son, "And faithful to thy word." 5 Eternal life, at his request, To every saint is given: Safety on Earth, and, after death, The plenitude of Heaven.

The Kingdom of God, not in word, but in power

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #LXV (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: A form of words tho' e'er so sound Lyrics: 1 A form of words tho' e'er so sound Can never save a soul, The Holy Ghost must give the wound, And make the wounded whole. 2 Though God's election is a truth, Small comfort there I see, Till I am told by GOD's own mouth, That he has chosen me. 3 Sinners, I read, are justified, By faith in JESUS' blood: But when to me that blood's appli'd, 'Tis then I've peace with GOD. 4 Imputed righteousness I own A doctrine most divine; For JESIS to my heart makes known, That all his merit's mine. 5 To perseverance I agree; The thing to me is clear; Because the LORD has promis'd me, That I shall persevere. 6 Thus christians glorify the LORD; His Spirit joins with ours, In bearing Witness to his word, With all its saving pow'rs.

A Godly sorrow for Christ's sufferings

Author: Dr. Watts Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #LXXXIII (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: Alas! and did my Savior bleed! Lyrics: 1 Alas! and did my Saviour bleed! And did my sov'reign die; Wou'd he devote that sacred head For such a worm as I? 2 Was it for crimes that I had done, He groan'd upon the tree? Amazing pity! grace unknown! And love beyond degree. 3 Well might the sun in darkness hide, And shut his glories in; When Christ the mighty Saviour dy'd For man the creature's sin. 4 Thus might I hide my blushing face, While his dear cross appears, Dissolve my heart in tenderness, And melt my eyes to tears. 5 But drops of grief can ne'er repay The debt of love we owe; Here, Lord, I give myself away, 'Tis all that I can do.

Watchfulness and Prayer

Author: Steel Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #LXXXIX (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: Alas what hourly dangers rise Lyrics: 1 Alas, what hourly dangers rise! What snares beset my way! To Heaven O let me lift mine eyes, And hourly watch and pray. 2 How oft my mournful thoughts complain, And melt in flowing tears; My weak resistance, ah! how vain! How strong my foes and fears! 3 O gracious GOD, in whom I live, My feeble efforts aid, Help me to watch, and pray, and strive, Tho' trembling and afraid. 4 Increase my faith, Increase my hope, When foes and fears prevail; And bear my fainting spirits up, Or soon my strength will fail. 5 When ere temptations fright my heart, Or lure my feet aside, My God, thy powerful aid impart, My guardian and my guide. 6 O keep me in thy heavenly way, And bid the tempter flee; And let me never, never stray From happiness and thee.

Almighty God of truth and love

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #CVII (1790) Topics: After Sermon Lyrics: 1 Almighty GOD of truth and love In me thy pow'r exert; The mountain from my soul remove, The hardness of my heart; My most obdurate heart subdue, In honour of thy Son, And now the gracious wonder shew, And take away the stone. 2 I want a principle within, Of jealous, godly fear; A sensibility of sin, A pain to feel it near: I want the first approach to feel Of pride, or vain desire, To catch the wand'rings of my will, And quench the kindling fire. 3 From thee that I no more depart, No more thy goodness grieve, The filial awe, the fleshly heart, The tender conscience give: Quick as the apple of an eye, O GOD! my conscience make: Awake my soul when sin is nigh, And keep it still awake.

Holy Fortitude

Author: Dr. Watts Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #XCVII (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: Am I a soldier of the cross? Lyrics: 1 Am I a soldier of the cross? A follower of the Lamb? And shall I fear to own his cause? Or blush to speak his name? 2 Must I be carry'd to the skies On flowery beds of ease, While others fought to win the prize, And sail'd through bloody seas? 3 Are there no foes for me to face? Must I not stem the flood? Is this vile world a friend to grace, To help me on to GOD? 4 Sure I must fight if I would reign; Increase my courage LORD: I'll bear the cross, endure the pain, Supported by thy word. 5 Thy saints, in all this glorious war, Shall conquer though they die; They see the triumph from afar, And seize it with their eye. 6 When that illustrious day shall rise, And all thy armies shine, In robes of vic'try through the skies, The glory shall be thine.

For New Year's Day

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #LXXVI (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: And now, my soul another year Lyrics: 1 And now, my soul another year Of thy short life is past. I cannot long continue here, And this may be my last. 2 Much of my dubious life is gone, Nor will return again; And swift my passing moments run, And few that yet remain. 3 Awake, my soul, with utmost care Thy true condition learn; What are thy hopes, how sure, how fair And what thy great concern. 4 Now a new scene of time begins, Set out afresh for Heaven; Seek pardon for thy former sins, In Christ so freely given. 5 Devoutly yield thyself to God, And on his grace depend; With zeal pursue the heav'nly road, Nor doubt a happy end.

The Heavenly guest

Author: Anne Steele Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #CVIII (1790) Topics: After Sermon First Line: And will the Lord thus condescend Lyrics: 1 And will the LORD thus condescend To visit sinful worms? Thus at the door shall mercy stand, In all her winning forms? 2 Surprizing grace! — and shall my heart Unmov'd and cold remain? Has this hard rock no tender part? Must mercy please in vain? 3 Shall JESIS for admission sue, His charming voice unheard? And this vile heart, his rightful due, Remain for ever barr'd? 4 'Tis sin, alas! with tyrant power, The lodging has possess'd; And crouds of traitors bar the door Against the heav'nly guest. 5 LORD, rise in thy all conqu'ring grace, Thy mighty power display; One beam of glory from thy face Can drive my foes away. 6 Ye dangerous inmates, hence depart; Dear Saviour enter in, And guard the passage to my heart, And keep out ev'ry sin. Scripture: Revelation 3:20 Languages: English
