The Searcher of Hearts

Meter: Appears in 8 hymnals Matching Instances: 2 First Line: O Lord, my inmost heart and thought Lyrics: 1 O Lord, my inmost heart and tho't Thy searching eye doth see; Where'er I rest, where'er I go, My ways are known to Thee. 2 Each spoken word, each silent tho't Thou, Lord, dost understand; Before me and behind art Thou, Restraining by Thy hand. 3 If I the wings of morning take To some remotest land, Still I shall be upheld by Thee And guided by Thy hand. 4 From Thee, O Lord, I cannot hide, Tho' darkness cover me; The darkness and the light of day Are both alike to Thee. 5 Search me, O God, and know my heart, Try me, my tho'ts to know; O lead me, if in sin I stray, In paths of life to go.

Give Me the Wings of Faith

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 484 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 First Line: Give me the wings of faith to rise Lyrics: 1. Give me the wings of faith to rise Within the veil, and see The saints above, how great their joys, How bright their glories be. 2. Once they were mourning here below, And wet their couch with tears: They wrestled hard, as we do now, With sins, and doubts, and fears. 3. I ask them whence their victory came: They, with united breath, Ascribe their conquest to the Lamb, Their triumph to His death. 4. They marked the footsteps that He trod, His zeal inspired their breast; And following their incarnate God, Possess the promised rest. 5. Our glorious Leader claims our praise For His own pattern giv’n; While the long cloud of witnesses Show the same path to Heav’n. Another arrangement, by Walter Kittredge (1834-1905), adds this refrain: Many are the friends who are waiting today, Happy on the golden strand, Many are the voices calling us away, To join their glorious band. Calling us away, calling us away, Calling to the better land, Calling us away, calling us away, Calling to the better land.

Help, Lord, for Men of Virtue Fail

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 49 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. Help, Lord, for men of virtue fail, Religion loses ground, The sons of violence prevail, And treacheries abound. 2. Their oaths and promises they break, Yet act the flatterer’s part; With fair, deceitful lips they speak, And with a double heart. 3. If we reprove some hateful lie, How is their fury stirred! Are not our lips our own? they cry; And who shall be our Lord? 4. Scoffers appear on every side, Where a vile race of men Is raised to seats of power and pride, And bears the sword in vain. 5. Lord, when iniquities abound, And blasphemy grows bold,; When faith is hardly to be found, And love is waxing cold; 6. Is not Thy chariot hastening on? Hast Thou not giv’n this sign? May we not trust and live upon A promise so divine? 7. Yes, saith the Lord, now will I rise, And make oppressors flee; I shall appear to their surprise, And set My servants free. 8. Thy Word, like silver sev’n times tried, Through ages shall endure; The men that in Thy truth confide Shall find the promise sure.

Let Worldly Minds the World Pursue

Author: John Newton Meter: Appears in 219 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. Let worldly minds the world pursue, It has no charms for me; Once I admired its trifles too, But grace has set me free. 2. Its pleasures now no longer please, No more content afford; Far from my heart be joys like these; Now I have seen the Lord. 3. As by the light of opening day The stars are all concealed; So earthly pleasures fade away, When Jesus is revealed. 4. Creatures no more divide my choice, I bid them all depart; His name, and love, and gracious voice, Have fixed my roving heart. 5. Now, Lord, I would be Thine alone, And wholly live to Thee; But may I hope that Thou wilt own A worthless worm, like me? 6. Yes! though of sinners I’m the worst, I cannot doubt Thy will; For if Thou hadst not loved me first I had refused Thee still. Used With Tune: BINGHAM Text Sources: Olney Hymns (London: W. Oliver, 1779), number 59

O Lord, How Are My Foes Increased

Meter: Appears in 12 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. O Lord, how are my foes increased! Against me many rise; How many say, in vain for help He on his God relies. 2. Thou art my shield and glory, Lord, My Savior, O Most High, The Lord from out His holy hill Gives answer when I cry. 3. I laid me down and slept, I waked, Because the Lord sustains; Though many thousands compass me, Unmoved my soul remains. 4. Arise, O Lord; save me, my God; For Thou hast owned my cause; And oft hast beaten down my foes Who scorn Thy righteous laws. 5. Salvation to the Lord belongs, In Him His saints are blest; O let Thy blessing evermore Upon Thy people rest.

There Is a Little Lonely Fold

Author: Maria G. Saffery Meter: Appears in 32 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. There is a little lonely fold, Whose flock one Shepherd keeps, Through summer’s heat and winter’s cold, With eye that never sleeps. 2. By evil beast, or burning sky, Or damp of midnight air, Not one in all that flock shall die Beneath that Shepherd’s care. 3. For if, unheeding or beguiled, In danger’s path they roam, His pity follows through the wild And guards them safely home. 4. O gentle Shepherd, still behold Thy helpless charge in me; And take a wanderer to Thy fold That trembling turns to Thee. Used With Tune: BINGHAM Text Sources: Poems on Sacred Subjects, 1834

Why Did the Gentiles Tumults Raise?

Author: Thomas Sternhold, ?-1549 Meter: Appears in 3 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. Why did the Gentiles tumults raise? What rage was in their brain? Why do the people still contrive A thing that is but vain? 2. The kings and rulers of the earth Conspire and are all bent Against the Lord, and Christ His Son, Whom He among us sent. 3. Shall we be bound to them? Say they, Let all Their bonds be broke; And of Their doctrine and Their law Let us reject the yoke. 4. But He that in the Heav’n doth dwell, Their doings will deride; And make them all as mocking-stocks Throughout the world so wide. 5. For in His wrath He shall reprove Their pride and scornful way, And in His fury trouble them, And unto them shall say, 6. I have anointed Him My King Upon My holy hill; I will therefore, Lord, preach Thy law According to Thy will: 7. The law whereof the Lord Himself Hath thus said unto Me, Thou art My only Son, this day Have I begotten Thee. 8. The people I will give to Thee, As heirs at Thy request The ends and coasts of all the earth By Thee shall be possessed. 9. Thou shalt them bruise e’en like to those That under foot are trod, And as a potter’s vessel break Them with an iron rod. 10. Now ye, O kings and rulers all, Be wise therefore and learned, By who the matters of the world Are judged and discerned. 11. See that ye serve the Lord above In trembling and in fear; See that with reverence ye rejoice When ye to Him draw near: 12. See that ye do embrace and kiss His Son without delay; Lest in His wrath ye suddenly Perish from the right way. 13. If once His wrath (but little) shall Be kindled in His breast, Then only they that trust in Him Shall happy be and blest. Used With Tune: BINGHAM
