Alas! Elisha's Servant Cried

Author: John Newton Meter: Appears in 3 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. Alas! Elisha’s servant cried, When he the Syrian army spied, But he was soon released from care, In answer to the prophet’s prayer. 2. Straitway he saw, with other eyes, A greater army from the skies; A fiery guard around the hill, Thus are the saints preservèd still. 3. When Satan and his host appear, Like him of old, I faint and fear; Like him, by faith, with joy I see, A greater host engaged for me. 4. The saints espouse my cause by prayer, The angels make my soul their care; Mine is the promise sealed with blood, And Jesus lives to make it good. Used With Tune: LOUELLA Text Sources: Olney Hymns, (London: W. Oliver, 1779), number 40.

There Is a Pure and Tranquil Wave

Author: William Ball Meter: Appears in 41 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. There is a pure and tranquil wave, [or There is a pure and peaceful wave] That issues from the throne of grace; Whose waters gladden as they lave The bright and heav’nly dwelling place. 2. In living streams behold that tide, Thro’ Christ, the rock, profusely burst, And in His Word behold supplied, The fount for which our spirits thirst. 3. The pilgrim, faint, who seems to sink Beneath the sultry sky of time, May here repose and freely drink The waters of that better clime. 4. And every soul may here partake The blessings of the fount above; And none who drink will e’er forsake The crystal stream of boundless love. Used With Tune: LOUELLA Text Sources: Nugae Sacrae, 1825

Through Desert Land

Author: Anna P. Williams; Richard W. Adams Appears in 1 hymnal Matching Instances: 1 First Line: While plodding through the desert land Lyrics: 1 While plodding through the desert land, Is all you see but mirage and sand? Has God hid His face, forgotten His child? The living water gone with His smile? 2 The long years stretch on, the sun burning down, The burden so heavy, and hard the ground; As strength starts to fail and dark fears arise, You question His promise, tears fill your eyes. 3 You think life is o’er, you can’t carry on, Your footsteps on fire, and strength is gone; But only believe: your fear will take wings, The sand turn to pools, and life giving springs! 4 The Word of God speaks, put down your despair: "I always am with you, as close as prayer; My love watches o’er you, still ever the same, And he who believes, shall never know shame." 5 So cast your burden on the Lord; Your God will sustain you and help afford; He will not abandon faith to the grave, Fear not, He is able, mighty to save. 6 It never was o’er—God does not forsake; Mirage gives way to sparkling lake! What God has promised, that will He do: The blessing of Heaven rains down anew. Used With Tune: [While plodding through the desert land]

Let Jacob To His Maker Sing

Author: Philip Doddridge, 1702-1751 Meter: Appears in 3 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Let Jacob to his maker sing, And praise his great redeeming king; Called by a new, a gracious name, Let Israel loud his God proclaim. 2 He knows our souls in all their fears, And gently wipes our falling tears, Forms trembling voices to a song, And bids the feeble heart be strong. 3 Then let the rivers swell around, And rising floods o’erflow the ground; Rivers and floods and seas divide, And homage pay to Israel’s guide. 4 Then let the fires their rage display, And flaming terrors bar the way; Unburnt, unsinged He leads them through, And makes the flames refreshing, too. 5 The fires but on their bonds shall prey, The floods but wash their stains away, And grace divine new trophies raise Amidst the deluge, and the blaze. Used With Tune: LOUELLA Text Sources: Published posthumously in Hymns, Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures by Job Orton (Shropshire, England: Joshua Eddowes & John Cotton, 1755)

To Thee, Most Holy, And Most High

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 20 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 To Thee, most Holy, and most High, To Thee we bring our thankful praise; Thy works declare Thy name is nigh, Thy works of wonder and of grace. 2 Our nation doomed to be a slave, [originally, Britain was doomed to be a slave] Her frame dissolved; her fears were great; When God a new supporter gave To bear the pillars of the state. 3 He from Thy hand received his crown, And swore to rule by wholesome laws; His foot shall tread th’oppressor down, His arm defend the righteous cause. 4 Let haughty sinners sink their pride, Nor lift so high their scornful head; But lay their foolish thoughts aside, And own the king that God hath made. 5 Such honors never come by chance, Nor do the winds promotion blow: ’Tis God the Judge doth one advance, ’Tis God that lays another low. 6 No vain pretense to royal birth Shall fix a tyrant on the throne: God the great Sovereign of the earth Will rise and make His justice known. 7 His hand holds out the dreadful cup Of vengeance mixed with various plagues, To make the wicked drink them up, Wring out and taste the bitter dregs. 8 Now shall the Lord exalt the just, And while He tramples on the proud And lays their glory in the dust, My lips shall sing His praise aloud. Used With Tune: LOUELLA Text Sources: The Psalms of David, 1719
