Jesus Calls Us

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander Hymnal: The United Methodist Hymnal #398 (1989) Meter: 8.7.8.7 Topics: Christ's Gracious Life Life and Teaching; Call to the Christian Life First Line: Jesus calls us o'er the tumult Lyrics: 1. Jesus calls us o'er the tumult of our life's wild, restless sea; day by day his sweet voice soundeth, saying, "Christian, follow me!" 2. As of old the apostles heard it by the Galilean lake, turned from home and toil and kindred, leaving all for Jesus' sake. 3. Jesus calls us from the worship of the vain world's golden store, from each idol that would keep us, saying, "Christian, love me more!" 4. In our joys and in our sorrows, days of toil and hours of ease, still he calls, in cares and pleasures, "Christian, love me more than these!" 5. Jesus calls us! By thy mercies, Savior, may we hear thy call, give our hearts to thine obedience, serve and love thee best of all. Scripture: Matthew 4:18-22 Languages: English Tune Title: GALILEE

Sinners, Turn: Why Will You Die

Author: Charles Wesley Hymnal: The United Methodist Hymnal #346 (1989) Topics: Call to the Christian Life Lyrics: Sinners, turn: why will you die? God, your Maker, asks you why. God, who did your being give, made you himself, that you might live; he the fatal cause demands, asks the work of his own hands. Why, you thankless creatures, why will you cross his love, and die? Sinners, turn: why will you die? God, your Savior, asks you why. God, who did your souls retrieve, died himself, that you might live. Will you let him die in vain? Crucify your Lord again? Why, you ransomed sinners, why will you slight his grace and die? Sinners, turn: why will you die? God, the Spirit, asks you why; he, who all your lives hath strove, wooed you to embrace his love. Will you not his grace receive? Will you still refuse to live? Why, you long-sought sinners, why, will you grieve your God, and die? You, on whom he favors showers, you, possessed of nobler powers, you, of reason’s powers possessed, you, with will and memory blest, you, with finer sense endued, creatures capable of God; noblest of his creatures, why ehy will you forever die? You, whom he ordained to be transcripts of the Trinity, you, whom he in life doth hold, you for whom himself was sold, you, on whom he still doth wait, whom he would again create; made by him, and purchased, why, why will you forever die? You, who own his record true, you, his chosen people, you, you, who call the Savior Lord, you, who read his written Word, you, who see the gospel light, claim a crown in Jesu’s right; why will you, ye Christians, why will the house of Israel die? Turn, he cries, ye sinners turn; by his life your God hath sworn; he would have you turn and live, he would all the world receive; he hath brought to all the race full salvation by his grace; he hath not one soul passed by; why will you resolve to die? Can ye doubt, if God is love, if to all his mercies move? Will ye not his word receive? Will ye not his oath believe? See, the suffering God appears! Jesus weeps! Believe his tears! Mingled with his blood they cry, why will you resolve to die? Scripture: Ezekiel 18:31-32 Languages: English

Where Shall My Wondering Soul Begin

Author: Charles Wesley Hymnal: The United Methodist Hymnal #342 (1989) Topics: Call to the Christian Life; Christian Experience Lyrics: Where shall my wondering soul begin? How shall I all to heaven aspire? A slave redeemed from death and sin, a brand plucked from eternal fire, how shall I equal triumphs raise, or sing my great deliverer’s praise? O how shall I the goodness tell, Father, which thou to me hast showed? That I, a child of wrath and hell, I should be called a child of God! Should know, should feel my sins forgiven, blest with this antepast of heaven! And shall I slight my Father’s love, or basely fear his gifts to own? Unmindful of his favors prove, shall I, the hallowed cross to shun, refuse his righteousness to impart, by hiding it within my heart? Outcasts of men, to you I call, harlots, and publicans, and thieves; he spreads his arms to embrace you all, sinners alone his grace receive. No need of Him the righteous have; he came the lost to seek and save. Come, O my guilty brethren, come, groaning beneath your load of sin; his bleeding heart shall make you room, his open side shall take you in. He calls you now, invites you home: Come, O my guilty brethren, come. For you the purple current flowed in pardon from his wounded side, languished for you the eternal God, for you the Prince of Glory died. Believe, and all your sin’s forgiven, only believe--and yours is heaven. Languages: English

We Would See Jesus

Edgar Park Hymnal: The United Methodist Hymnal #256 (1989) Meter: 11.10.11.10 Topics: Christian Year Epiphany; Christ's Gracious Life Life and Teaching; Call to the Christian Life; Christian Year Epiphany First Line: We would see Jesus; lo! his star is shining Lyrics: 1. We would see Jesus; lo! his star is shining above the stable while the angels sing; there in a manger on the hay reclining; haste, let us lay our gifts before the King. 2. We would see Jesus, Mary's son most holy, light of the village life from day to day; shining revealed through every task most lowly, the Christ of God, the life, the truth, the way. 3. We would see Jesus, on the mountain teaching, with all the listening people gathered round; while birds and flowers and sky above are preaching the blessedness which simple trust has found. 4. We would see Jesus, in his work of healing, at eventide before the sun was set; divine and human, in his deep revealing of God made flesh, in loving service met. 5. We would see Jesus, in the early morning, still as of old he calleth, "Follow me!" Let us arise, all meaner service scorning; Lord, we are thine, we give ourselves to thee.
