God the Father, Almighty Creator

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H9 (1789) Topics: Heidleberg Catechism Lord's Day 9 First Line: Almighty God we praise, and own Lyrics: 1 Almighty God we praise, and own, Thee our Creator, King alone; All things were made to honour thee O Father of eternity. 2 To thee all angels loudly cry, The heav'ns and all the pow'rs on high, Cherubs and seraphims proclaim, And cry, thrice holy to thy name. 3 Lord God of hosts thy presence bright Fills heav'n and earth with beauteous light; Th' apostles happy company, And antient prophets all praise thee. 4 The crowned martyrs noble host, The holy church in every coast, Their Maker for their Father own, Now reconcil'd in Christ his Son.

Life everlating

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H22.II (1789) Topics: Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 22 First Line: Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound!) Lyrics: 6 Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound) That sav'd a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see. 7 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears reliev'd; How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believ'd! 8 Thro' many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come; 'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home. 9 The Lord has promis'd good to me, His word my hope secures; He will my shield and portion be, As long as life endures. 10 Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease; I shall possess, within the vail, A life of joy and peace. 11 There joys unseen by mortal eyes Or reason's feeble ray, In ever blooming prospects rise, Unconscious of decay. 12 Then now, on faith's sumblimest wing, Let ardent wishes rise To those bright scenes, where pleasures spring, Immortal in the skies Languages: English

Hallowed by thy Name

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H47 (1789) Topics: Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 47 First Line: Among the princes, earthly gods Lyrics: 1 Among the princes, earthly gods, There’s none hath pow'r divine; Nor is their names or works, O Lord, Or natures, like to thine. 2 Thy matchless pow'r, thy sov'reign sway, The nations shall adore; Their long misguided pray'rs and praise To thee O God restore. 4 Let all confess thy name and know The wonders thou hast done; Let all adore thee, God supreme, And own thee God alone. 4 While heav'n and all who dwell on high To thee their voices raise, Let the whole earth assist the sky, And join t' advance thy praise.

He descended into Hell

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H16.III (1789) Topics: Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 16 First Line: And did the holy and the just Lyrics: 11 And did the holy and the just, The Sov'reign of the skies, Stoop down to wretchedness and dust, That guilty worms might rise? 12 Yes, the redeemer in his soul Sustain'd the pains of hell; The wrath of God without controul, On him our surety fell. 13 He took the dying sinner's place, And suffered in his stead; For man, (O miracle of grace!) For man the Saviour bled! 14 Dear Lord, what heav'nly wonders dwell In thy atoning blood! By this are sinners snatch'd from hell, And rebels brought to God. 15 Jesus, my soul, adoring, bends To love so full, so free; And may I hope that love extends It's sacred power to me? 16 What glad return can I impart For favours so divine? O take my all — this worthless heart, And make it only thine. Languages: English

Home in view, Amen

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H52.VI (1789) Topics: Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 52 First Line: As when the weary trav'ller gains Lyrics: 27 As, when the weary trav'ller gains The height of some o'er-looking hill, His heart revives, if cross the plains He eyes his home, tho' distant still. 28 Thus when the christian pilgrim views By faith, his mansion in the skies, The sight his fainting strength renews, And wings his speed to reach the prize. 29 The thought of home his spirit cheers, No more he grieves for troubles past; Nor any future trial fears, So he may save arrive at last. 30 'Tis there, he says, I am to dwell With Jesus, in the realms of day; Then I shall bid my cares farewel, And he will wipe my tears away. 31 Jesus, on thee my hope depends, To lead me on to thine abode; Assur'd our home will make amends For all our toil while on the road. 32 Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen, Amen.

Communion of Saints

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H21.II (1789) Topics: Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 21 First Line: Blest be the tie that bind Lyrics: 5 Blest be the tie that binds Our hearts in christian love; The fellowship of kindred minds, Is like to that above. 6 Before our Father's throne We pour our ardent prayers; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, Our comforts and our cares. 7 We share our mutual woes; Our mutual burdens bear; And often for each other flows The sympathizing tear. 8 Alli'd to Christ our head, We act, we grow, and thrive; Nor will he leave us with the dead, While he remains alive. 9 This glorious hope revives Our courage by the way; While each in expectation lives, And longs to see the day. 10 From sorrow, toil, and pain, And sin, we shall be free; And perfect love and friendship reign Thro' all eternity.

resurrection of the Dead

Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H22 (1789) Topics: Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 22 First Line: Blest Jesus, source of ev'ry grace Lyrics: 1 Blest Jesus, source of ev'ry grace, From far to view thy smiling face, While absent thus by faith we live, Exceeds all joys that earth can give. 2 But O! what extacy unknown Fills the wide circle round thy throne, Where ev'ry rapt'rous hour appears Nobler than millions of our years! 3 Millions by millions multiplied, Shall ne'er thy saints from thee divide; But the bright legions live and praise Thro' all thy own immortal days. 4 O happy dead, in thee that sleep, While o'er their mould'ring dust we weep! O faithful Saviour, who shalt come That dust to ransom from the tomb! 5 While thine unerring word imparts So rich a cordial to our hearts, Thro' tears our triumphs shall be shown, Tho' round their graves, and near our own.
