Jesus! the name high over all

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!"

The christian navigates a sea

Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #457 (1828) Meter: Topics: Christian experience A pilgrimage Lyrics: 1 The christian navigates a sea Where various forms of death appear; Nor skill, alas! nor power has he, Aright his dangerous course to steer. 2 Sometimes there lies a treacherous rock Beneath the surface of the wave! He strikes, but yet survives the shock, For Jesus is at hand to save. 3 But hark, the midnight tempest roars! He seems forsaken and alone: But Jesus, whom he then implores, Unseen preserves and leads him on. 4 On the smooth surface of the deep, Without a fear he sometimes lies: The danger then is lest he sleep, And ruin seize him by surprise. 5 His destin'd land he sometimes sees, And thinks his toils will soon be o'er; Expects some favourable breeze Will waft him quickly to the shore. 6 But sudden clouds obstruct his view, And he enjoys the sight no more; Nor does he now believe it true, That he had even seen the shore. 7 Though fear his heart should overwhelm, He'll reach the port for which he's bound; For Jesus holds and guides the helm, And safety is where he is found. Scripture: Psalm 107:30
