Tune Title: DIADEMATA

Author: C. Wesley, 1707-1788 Hymnal: Methodist Hymn and Tune Book #65 (1917) Topics: Christian Experience; Experience, Christian; Christian Experience; Experience, Christian Lyrics: 1 Jesus! the name high over all, In hell, or earth, or sky; Angels and men before it fall, And devils fear and fly. 2 Jesus! the name to sinners dear, The name to sinners given; It scatters all their guilty fear, It turns their hell to heaven. 3 Jesus the prisoner's fetters breaks, And bruises Satan's head; Power into strengthless souls it speaks, And life into the dead. 4 O that the world might taste and see The riches of His grace! The arms of love that compass me Would all mankind embrace. 5 His only righteousness I show, His saving truth proclaim; 'Tis all my business here below To cry, "Behold the Lamb!" 6 Happy, if with my latest breath I may but gasp His name; Preach Him to all, and cry in death, "Behold, behold the Lamb!" Tune Title: BYZANTIUM

Hymnal: Book of Worship (Rev. ed.) #415 (1870) Topics: Choice of the Christian; Christians their life and experience; Crucifixion of Christians to the world Lyrics: 1 Vain, delusive world, adieu, With all of creature good! Only Jesus I pursue, Who bought me with His blood: All thy pleasures I forego; I trample on thy wealth and pride; Only Jesus will I know, And Jesus, crucified. 2 Other knowledge I disdain; 'Tis all but vanity: Christ, the Lamb of God, was slain,-- He tasted death for me. Me to save from endless woe The sin-atoning Victim died: Only Jesus will I know, And Jesus, crucified. 3 Him to know is life and peace, And pleasure without end; This is all my happiness, On Jesus to depend; Daily in His grace to grow, And ever in His faith abide; Only Jesus will I know, And Jesus, crucified.

Hymnal: Book of Worship (Rev. ed.) #416 (1870) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Choice of the Christian; Christians their life and experience; Crucifixion of Christians to the world Lyrics: 1 I send the joys of earth away; Away, ye tempters of the mind, False as the smooth, deceitful sea, And empty as the whistling wind. 2 Your streams were floating me along Down the gulf of dark despair, And whilst I listen'd to your song, Your streams had e’en conveyed me there. 3 Lord, I adore Thy matchless grace, That warn'd me of that dark abyss, That drew me from those treacherous seas, And bade me seek superior bliss. 4 There, from the bosom of my God, Oceans of endless pleasure roll; There would I fix my last abode, And drown the sorrows of my soul.

What thousands never knew the road!

Hymnal: Book of Worship (Rev. ed.) #417 (1870) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Choice of the Christian; Christians their life and experience; Crucifixion of Christians to the world Lyrics: 1 What thousands never knew the road! What thousands hate it when 'tis known! None but the upright and sincere Will seek or choose it for their own. 2 A thousand ways in ruin end, One only leads to joys on high; By that my willing steps ascend, Pleased with a journey to the sky. 3 No more I ask, or hope to find Delight or happiness below; Sorrow may well possess the mind That feeds where thorns and thistles grow. 4 The joy that fades is not for me, I seek immortal joys above; There glory, without end, shall be The bright reward of faith and love.

Thou art my shield, my hiding-place; My hope is in Thy Word. 6 Thou hast inclined this heart of mine Thy statutes to fulfil; And thus till mortal life shall end Would I perform Thy will.

Great God, indulge my humble claim

Let thoughtless thousands choose the road

Hymnal: Book of Worship (Rev. ed.) #410 (1870) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Choice of the Christian; Christians their life and experience Lyrics: 1 Let thoughtless thousands choose the road That leads the soul away from God; This happiness, dear Lord, be mine, To live and die entirely Thine. 2 On Christ, by faith, my soul would live; From Him, my life, my all receive; To Him devote my fleeting hours; Serve Him alone with all my powers. 3 Christ is my everlasting all; To Him I look, on Him I call; He will my ev'ry want supply, In time, and through eternity. 4 Soon will the Lord, my Life, appear; Soon shall I end my trials here; Leave sin and sorrow, death and pain; To live is Christ, to die is gain. 5 Soon will the saints in glory meet, Soon walk through ev'ry golden street, And sing on ev'ry blissful plain, To live is Christ, to die is gain.
