O Sacred Head, Now Wounded

Author: Bernard of Clairvaux, 1091-1153; James W. Alexander Hymnal: The New Christian Hymnal #420 (1929) Meter: D Topics: Choral Section Passion of Christ First Line: O sacred Head, now wounded Lyrics: 1. O sacred Head, now wounded, With grief and shame weighed down; Now scornfully surrounded With thorns, Thine only crown; O sacred Head, what glory, What bliss till now was Thine! Yet, though despised and gory, I joy to call Thee mine. 2. O noblest Brow and dearest, In other days the world All feared when Thou appearedst; What shame on Thee is hurled! How art Thou pale with anguish, With sore abuse and scorn; How does that visage languish Which once was bright as morn! 3. What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered Was all for sinners' gain: Mine, mine was the trangsgression But Thine the deadly pain. Lo, here I fall, my Savior! 'Tis I deserve Thy place; Look on me with Thy favor, Vouchsafe to me Thy grace. 4. What language shall I borrow To thank Thee, dearest Friend, For this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end? O make me Thine forever; And should I fainting be, Lord, let me never, never Outlive my love to Thee. Languages: English Tune Title: PASSION CHORALE

My God, How Wonderful Thou Art

Author: Rev. Frederick W. Faber Hymnal: The New Christian Hymnal #413 (1929) Meter: Topics: Choral Section God's Excellencies Lyrics: 1. My God, how wonderful Thou art, Thy majesty how bright! How beautiful Thy mercy-seat In depths of burning light! 2. O how I fear Thee, living God, With deepest, tend'rest fears; And worship Thee with trembling hope And penitential tears. 3. Yet I may love Thee too, O Lord, Almighty as Thou art; For Thou hast stooped to ask of me The love of my poor heart. 4. No earthly father loves like Thee, No mother half so mild Bears and forbears, as Thou hast done With me, Thy sinful child. 5. Father of Jesus, love's Reward! What rapture will it be, Prostrate before Thy throne to lie, And gaze and gaze on Thee. Languages: English Tune Title: ST. ETHELDREDA

God Moves In a Mysterious Way

Author: William Cowper Hymnal: The New Christian Hymnal #414 (1929) Meter: Topics: Choral Section God's Excellencies Lyrics: 1. God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants His footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. 2. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take; The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head. 3. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, But trust Him for His grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. 4. His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding ev'ry hour' The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flow'r. 5. Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan His work in vain: God is His own interpreter, And He will make it plain. Languages: English Tune Title: DUNDEE

As the Hart When Noon Is Burning

Author: Edward A. Collier Hymnal: The New Christian Hymnal #415 (1929) Meter: Topics: Choral Section Longing For God Lyrics: 1. As the hart when noon is burning Pants for springs when waters burst, So for God my soul is yearning, For the living God a-thirst: When shall I, a wand'rer here, In Thy presence, Lord, appear? Daily by my foes derided, Tears they for my food provided. 2. If fond mem'ry seek to borrow Comfort from the former years, These but stir anew my sorrow, Open ev'ry fount of trears: Unto Zion's gates with song, Oh, how oft I led the throng, Who with joy and praise adore Thee, Keeping holiday before Thee. 3. Why art thou cast down and fearful? O my soul, why so dismayed? Hope in God, and eyes now tearful Yet shall see His present aid. Down, O God, my heart is cast, Till I think of mercies past; Then to Thee, my spirit weary Turns as from a desert dreary. 4. As Thy waterfalls resounding, Deep is calling unto deep: Over me, Thine all-surrounding Waves and billow wildly sweep: Yet the Lord will bless my days, I, His loving-kindness praise; And His song, at midnight given, Be my prayer to God in heaven. 5. Why disquieted within me! Why art thou, my soul, cast down! Hope in God, I yet shall praise Him, Who with joy my life will crown. He, my God, whose wondrous grace Is the help that cheers my face, Comforts me, when tears are blinding, As the hart cool waters finding. Scripture: Psalm 42 Languages: English Tune Title: GENEVAN 42

I Love the Lord

Author: Edward A. Collier Hymnal: The New Christian Hymnal #416 (1929) Meter: Topics: Choral Section Love For God First Line: I love the Lord, because He heareth me Lyrics: 1. I love the Lord, because he heareth me Oft as my suppliant voice to Him ascendeth; And since to me a list'ning ear He bendeth; To Him my whole life long my prayer shall be. 2. The cords of death encompassed me around; Pangs of despair held me in bondage dreary; Of trouble and of grief my life was weary, Till on His Name I called and comfort found. 3. My soul's salvation of the Lord I craved, The gracious, righteous Lord, all pity showing; The simple He preserveth, grace bestowing; And me, brought low, He in His mercy saved. 4. Return, my soul, to thy sweet rest again: Before the Lord, so kindly, safely keeping From death and falls and tears of bitter weeping, I now will walk in lands of living men. 5. What shall I render to the Lord today For all His benefits upon me falling? Salvation's cup I'll take, and on Him calling, I, where His people meet, my vows will pay. 6. Yea, I the sacrifice of thanks will bring, And, in the midst of thee, O Zion holy, Before assembled saints, wtih spirit lowly, Will pay my voiws. Praise ye the Lord our King! Scripture: Psalm 116 Languages: English Tune Title: [I love the Lord, because He heareth me]
