Thee Lord, Our God, We Praise

All Cherubim and Seraphim, Ever tuning the lofty hymn: "Holy art Thou, our God! Holy art Thou, our God! Holy art Thou, our God! Jehovah Saboath!" 2 Thy glorious power and mighty name Rise over heaven and nature's frame. The holy twelve Apostles all, The Prophets Thou of old didst call, The martyrs goodly company-- Send up their hymns of praise to Thee. All Christendom with one accord Exalt and praise their common Lord-- Thee, Father, on Thy lofty throne, Thy well-beloved, Only Son, The Holy Ghost, the Comforter, They praise and honor evermore. 3 O Christ, to Thee, the glorious King, Eternal Son of God, we sing. To save our race from sin forlorn Thou camest, of chaste virgin born; Thou didst endure death's sharpest pain, And open heaven for us again. As equal there at God's right hand Thou sittest in supreme command. Thou, our exalted risen Head, Wilt be the Judge of quick and dead. 4 Now help us, Lord, Thy servants here, Whom Thou hast saved with blood so dear, Let us have portion with the blest In Thine eternal, glorious rest. Lord Jesus, bless Thine heritage, And shield Thy fold from age to age. Protect and nurse Thine own with care, Then let them endlessly glory share. 5 Daily, our God, we'll sing Thy praise, And bless Thy name throughout our days. Keep us, O Lord, throughout this day From sin and every evil way: Have mercy upon us, O Lord; In all our need Thy grace afford; Thy mercy unto us e'er show, It is our only hope below. Dear Lord! our hopes all rest in Thee, Oh! let us ne'er confounded be. Amen! Languages: English

Canst Thou forget Thy glorious work, Thy promise and Thy pow'r to save? 2 Shall life revisit dying worms, And spread the joyful insect's wing! And, oh! shall man awake no more To see Thy face, Thy name to sing? 3 Cease, cease, ye vain desponding fears! When Christ, our Lord, from darkness sprung, Death, the last foe, was captive led, And heav'n with praise and wonder rung. 4 Him, the First-Fruits, His chosen sons Shall follow from the vanquished grave; He mounts His throne, the King of kings, His Church to quicken and to save. 5 Faith sees the bright, eternal doors Unfold to make His children way; They shall be clothed with endless life, And shine in everlasting day. 6 The trump shall sound, the dust awake; And from the tomb the slumb'rers spring; Through heav'n the joyful myriads rise, And hail their Savior and their King.

Thy gracious help supply: To each of us the blessing give, In Christian fellowship to live, In joyful hope to die. Languages: English Tune Title: ARIEL

Who knew no sin and no deceiving

Author: Rev. Emanuel Cronenwett, D. D.; Rev. George Cronenwett Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran hymnal #402 (1908) Topics: Christian Life and Hope The Walk of Godliness: Christian Resolve and Holiness; Christian Life and Hope The Walk of Godliness: Christian Resolve and Holiness Lyrics: 1 Who knew no sin and no deceiving, Has borne my sin and my distress; And I by grace in Him believing, Now deck me with His righteousness. As He is sinner to my good, So I am holy through His blood. 2 Nay not in me, self-righteous were it, On God's grace rests my holiness; He looks on Christ's atoning merit, And counts this as my righteousness: This I believe, and hence my claim, That I am holy in His Name. 3 In Christ, by faith then, I am holy, In self though 'tis not yet the case; But I will likewise now so wholly Seek e'er in life to walk by grace, That soul and body may remain All blameless till Christ come again. 4 I will devote my every member To serve in righteousness God's will, Then when I falter, e'er remember That I may trust God's mercy still; And pray that God would guide through strife, That I may lead a holy life. 5 Thus will I walk, O God, before Thee, That my light too may shine alway And that I by my life adore Thee, Till I at length on that great day In life and self shall holy be, And wholly perfect, Lord, with Thee.

Time flies, and death is hasting on: How soon, my term of trial ended, May heave my lat expiring groan! For Jesus' sake, when flesh shall fail, O God, with we may all be well! 2 My many sins! O veil them over With merits of Thy dying Son! I here Thy richest grace discover, Here find I peace, and here alone; And for His sake, when flesh shall fail, O God, with me may it be well! 3 His bleeding wounds give me assurance That Thy free mercy will abide; Here strength I find for death's endurance, And hope for all I need beside: For Jesus' sake, when flesh shall fail, O God, with me may it be well! 4 Naught shall my soul from Jesus sever, Nor life, nor death; things high nor low: I take Him as my Lord forever, My future trust, as He is now; And for His sake, when flesh shall fail, O God, with me may it be well.

There is a land of pure delight

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran hymnal #453 (1908) Topics: Christian Life and Hope The Consummation: Hope of Resurrection and Future Life; Christian Life and Hope The Consummation: Hope of Resurrection and Future Life Lyrics: 1 There is a land of pure delight, Where saints immortal reign; Eternal day excludes the night, And pleasures banish pain. There everlasting spring abides, And never-with'ring flowers: Death, like a narrow sea, divides This heav’nly land from ours. 2 Sweet fields, beyond the swelling flood, Stand dressed in living green: So to the Jews old Canaan stood, While Jordan rolled between. But tim'rous mortals start and shrink To cross this narrow sea; And linger, shivering, on the brink, And fear to launch away. 3 O could we make our doubts remove, Those gloomy thoughts that rise, And view the Canaan that we love With unbeclouded eyes! Could we but climb where Moses stood, And view the landscape o’er, Not Jordan’s stream, nor death’s cold flood, Should fright us from the shore. Languages: English Tune Title: VARINA

Let but Thy grace ne'er from me part, Else as thou wilt, grant patient heart: Thy will the best is ever. 2 Grant honor, truth, and self-control, And love the Word to ponder; From doctrines false preserve my soul: And grant both here and yonder What will conduce to blessed days; Keep far all wrong and crooked ways From all my life and doings. 3 When I, according to Thy will, Shall leave this vale of sadness, O let Thy grace my bosom fill, That I may go with gladness; My spirit I commend to Thee, O Lord, a blessed end give me Through Jesus Christ! Yea, Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: STRASBURG (Herr, wie du willst, so schick's)

Jesus, my Redeemer, lives

Author: Louise Henrietta, Electress of Brandenburg; Catherine Winkworth Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran hymnal #456 (1908) Topics: Christian Life and Hope The Consummation: Hope of Resurrection and Future Life; Christian Life and Hope The Consummation: Hope of Resurrection and Future Life Lyrics: 1 Jesus, my Redeemer, lives, Christ, my Trust, is dead no more; In the strength this knowledge gives, Shall not all my fears be o'er? Calm, though the death's long night be fraught Still with many an anxious tho't? 2 Jesus, my Redeemer, lives, And His life I once shall see; Bright the hope the promise gives, Where He is I too shall be. Shall I fear then? Can the Head Rise and leave the members dead? 3 Close to Him my soul is bound! In the bonds of hope enclasped; Faith's strong hand this soul hath found, And the Rock hath firmly grasped; Death shall ne'er my soul remove From her refuge in Thy love. 4 I shall see Him with these eyes-- Him whom I shall surely know; Not another shall I rise, With His love this heart shall glow; Only there shall disappear Weakness in and round me here. 5 Ye who suffer, sigh, and moan, Fresh and glorious there shall reign; Earthly here the seed is sown, Heavenly it shall rise again; Natural here the death we die, Spiritual our life on high. 6 Body, be thou of good cheer, In thy Savior's care rejoice; Give not place to gloom and fear-- Dead, thou yet shalt know His voice, When the final trump is heard, And the deaf, cold grave is stirred. 7 Laugh to scorn then death and hell, Laugh to scorn the gloomy grave; Caught into the air to dwell With the Lord who comes to save, We shall trample on our foes, Mortal weakness, fear and woes. 8 Only see ye that your heart Rise betimes from earthly lust; Would ye there with Him have part, Here obey your Lord and trust, Fix your hearts beyond the skies, Whither ye yourselves would rise.

Lo, what a pleasing sight

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran hymnal #392 (1908) Topics: Christian Life and Hope The Walk of Godliness: Christian Resolve and Holiness; Christian Life and Hope The Walk of Godliness: Christian Resolve and Holiness Lyrics: 1 Lo, what a pleasing sight Are brethren that agree! How blest are all whose hearts unite In bonds of piety! 2 From those celestial springs, Such streams of comfort flow, As no increase of riches brings, Nor honors can bestow. 3 All in their stations move, And each performs his part, In all the cares of life and love, With sympathizing heart. 4 Formed for the purest joys, By one desire possesed, One aim the zeal of all employs, To make each other blest. 5 No bliss can equal theirs, Where such affections meet; While praise devout, and mingled pray'rs, Make their communion sweet. 6 'Tis the same pleasure fills The breast in worlds above, Where joy like morning dew distils, And all the air is love.
