Thy Little Ones, Dear Lord, Are We

Author: H. A. Brorson; Anon. Hymnal: American Lutheran Hymnal #609 (1930) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Carols and Spiritual Songs Christmas Lyrics: 1 Thy little ones, dear Lord, are we, And come Thy lowly bed to see; Enlighten ev'ry soul and mind, That we the way to Thee may find. 2 With songs we hasten Thee to greet And kiss the dust before Thy feet, O blessed hour, O sweetest night, That gave Thee birth, our soul's delight. 3 Now welcome! From Thy heav'nly home, Tho' Thou to grief and tears art come: Man has on earth for Thee no room Save stable, manger, cross and tomb. 4 Alas, dear Lord, how can it be So few bestow a thought on Thee Or on the love, so wondrous great, That drew Thee down to our estate? 5 O draw us wholly to Thee, Lord, Do Thou to us Thy grace afford; True faith and love to us impart, That we may hold Thee in our heart. 6 Keep us, howe'er the world may lure, In our baptismal cov'nant pure; That ev'ry yearning tho't may be Directed only, Lord, to Thee. 7 Until at last we too acclaim, With all Thy saints, Thy glorious name; In Paradise our songs renew And praise Thee as the angels do. 8 We gather round Thee, Jesus dear, So happy in Thy presence here; O Savior, grant us this alone, To stand in heaven before Thy throne.

Beside Thy Manger Here I Stand

I Lay My Sins on Jesus

Author: Horatius Bonar Hymnal: The Lutheran Hymnal #652 (1941) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: Carols and Spiritual Songs Lyrics: 1 I lay my sins on Jesus, The spotless Lamb of God; He bears them all and frees us From the accursed load. I bring my guilt to Jesus To wash my crimson stains White in His blood most precious Till not a spot remains. 2 I lay my wants on Jesus, All fulness dwells in Him; He healeth my diseases, He doth my soul redeem. I lay my griefs on Jesus, My burdens and my cares; He from them all releases, He all my sorrows shares. 3 I rest my soul on Jesus, This weary soul of mine; His right hand me embraces, I on His breast recline. I love the name of Jesus, Immanuel, Christ, the Lord; Like fragrance on the breezes His name abroad is poured. 4 I long to be like Jesus, Meek, loving, lowly, mild; I long to be like Jesus, The Father's holy Child. I long to be with Jesus Amid the heav'nly throng To sing with saints His praises, To learn the angels' song. Amen. Scripture: John 1:29 Languages: English Tune Title: AURELIA

Behold a Host, Arrayed in White

Author: Hans A. Brorson Hymnal: The Lutheran Hymnal #656 (1941) Topics: Carols and Spiritual Songs Lyrics: 1 Behold a host, arrayed in white, Like thousand snow-clad mountains bright, With palms they stand. Who is this band Before the throne of light? Lo, these are they of glorious fame Who from the great affliction came And in the flood of Jesus' blood Are cleansed from guilt and blame. Now gathered in the holy place, Their voices they in worship raise, Their anthems swell where God doth dwell, Mid angels' songs of praise. 2 Despised and scorned, they sojourned here; But now, how glorious they must appear! Those martyrs stand a priestly band, God's throne forever near. So oft, in troubled days gone by, In anguish they would weep and sigh. At home above the God of Love For aye their tears shall dry. They now enjoy their Sabbath rest, The paschal banquet of the blest; The Lamb, their Lord, at festal board Himself is Host and Guest. 3 Then hail, ye mighty legions, yea, All hail! Now safe and blest for aye; And praise the Lord, who with His Word Sustained you on the way. Ye did the joys of earth disdain, Ye toiled and sowed in tears and pain. Farewell, now bring your sheaves and sing Salvation's glad refrain. Swing high your palms, lift up your song, Yea, make it myriad voices strong. Eternally shall praise to Thee, God, and the Lamb belong. Amen. Scripture: Revelation 7:13-17 Languages: English Tune Title: GREAT WHITE HOST

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Author: Sabine Baring-Gould Hymnal: The Lutheran Hymnal #658 (1941) Meter: 6.5.6.5 D with refrain Topics: Carols and Spiritual Songs Lyrics: 1 Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before. Christ, the royal Master, Leads against the Foe; Forward into battle See His banners go! Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before. 2 Like a mighty army Moves the Church of God; Brothers, we are treading Where the saints have trod. We are not divided, All one body we, One in hope and doctrine, One in charity. Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before. 3 Crowns and thrones may perish, Kingdoms rise and wane, But the Church of Jesus Constant will remain. Gates of hell can never 'Gainst that church prevail; We have Christ's own promise, And that cannot fail. Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before. 4 Onward, then, ye faithful, Join our happy throng, Blend with ours your voices In the triumph song: Glory, laud, and honor Unto Christ, the King; This thro' countless ages Men and angels sing. Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before. Amen. Scripture: Matthew 16:18 Languages: English Tune Title: ST. GERTRUDE

As The Rose Shall Blossom Here

Author: S. D. Rodholm; N. F. S. Grundtvig Hymnal: American Lutheran Hymnal #602 (1930) Meter: 7.6.7.6.7.7.6 Topics: Carols and Spiritual Songs Advent Lyrics: 1 As the rose shall blossom here All the desert places Blossom when the golden year Shines on saddened faces. Glory crowns proud Lebanon, Carmel's height has splendor won. Flowers bloom in Sharon. 2 Quiet ye the trembling hands, All the feeble strengthen, Loosen all enslaving bands, God our days would lengthen. Gleams the sword, so keen and swift, Death to foes, to friends a gift; Comes the Lord to save you. 3 Sight He gives to all the blind, Ne'er their eyes shall darken; Ev'ry mute his voice shall find, All the deaf shall harken; Like the hart the lame shall leap, Zion nevermore shall weep. Peace shall reign forever. 4 Thus Isaiah prophesied In the days of sadness. Ages passed, then far and wide Spread the news of gladness: Christ is here, with us He stands, Changing with His loving hands Desert wastes to Eden. 5 Hail our King at God's right hand, Jesus and His Spirit Lead us to the promised land We by faith inherit. And tho' death be drawing near, Words of life the deaf shall hear; Mutes shall sing His praises. Languages: English Tune Title: ROSA
