Here within this house of prayer

Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith (born 1926) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #563a (1987) Meter: 7.7.7.7.7.7 Topics: Christ the Friend of Sinners Lyrics: 1 Here within this house of prayer all our Father's love declare; love that gave us birth, and planned days and years beneath his hand: praise to God whose love and power bring us to this present hour! 2 Here, till earthly praises end, tell of Christ the sinner's friend; Christ whose blood for us was shed, Lamb of God and living bread, life divine and truth and way, light of everlasting day. 3 Here may all our faint desire feel the Spirit's wind and fire souls that sleep the sleep of death stir to life beneath his breath: may his power upon us poured send us out to serve the Lord! 4 Here may faith and love increase, flowing forth in joy and peace from the Father, Spirit, Son, undivided, Three-in-One: his the glory all our days in this house of prayer and praise!

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

Author: J. Newton (1725-1807) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #211a (1987) Topics: Christ the Friend of Sinners Lyrics: 1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer's ear! it soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds, and drives away our fear. 2 It makes the wounded spirit whole, and calms the troubled breast; it satisfies the hungry soul, and gives the weary rest. 3 Dear name, the rock on which I build, my shield and hiding-place; my never-failing treasury, filled with boundless stores of grace! 4 Jesus, my shepherd, guardian, friend, my prophet, priest and king, my Lord, my life, my way, my end — accept the praise I bring. 5 Weak is the effort of my heart, and cold my warmest thought; but when I see you as you are, I'll praise you as I ought. 6 Till then I would your love proclaim with every fleeting breath; and may the music of your name refresh my soul in death.

We lift them to the Lord, and give to God our thanks with one accord; it is our joy and duty, all our days to lift our hearts in grateful thanks and praise. 2 Above the level of the former years, the mire of sin, the slough of guilty fears, the mist of doubt, the blight of love's decay — O Lord of light, lift all our hearts today! 3 Above the swamps of subterfuge and shame, the deeds, the thoughts, that honour may not name, the halting tongue that dares not tell the whole — O Lord of truth, lift every Christian soul! 4 Above the storms that darken human life — pride, jealousy and envy, rage and strife; where cold mistrust holds friend and friend apart — O Lord of love, lift every Christian heart! 5 Then, with the trumpet call as Christ appears, 'Lift up your hearts!' rings, pealing in our ears: still shall our hearts respond with full accord — 'We lift them up, we lift them to the Lord!'

What a friend we have in Jesus

Author: J. M. Scriven (1819-1886) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #373a (1987) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Topics: Christ the Friend of Sinners Lyrics: 1 What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear; what a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer. 2 Have we trials and temptations, is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged: take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness — take it to the Lord in prayer. 3 Are we weak and heavy-laden, burdened with a load of care? Jesus is our mighty saviour: he will listen to our prayer. Do your friends despise, forsake you? take it to the Lord in prayer; in his arms he will enfold you and his love will shield you there. Tune Title: BLAENWERN
