I Sought the Lord

Author: Anon. Meter: Appears in 74 hymnals Matching Instances: 10 First Line: I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew Lyrics: 1. I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew he moved my soul to seek him, seeking me. It was not I that found, O Savior true; no, I was found of thee. 2. Thou didst reach forth thy hand and mine enfold; I walked and sank not on the storm-vexed sea. 'Twas not so much that I on thee took hold, as thou, dear Lord, on me. 3. I find, I walk, I love, but oh, the whole of love is but my answer, Lord, to thee! For thou wert long beforehand with my soul; always thou lovedst me.

Because I Knew Not When My Life Was Good

Author: Sarah Williams Meter: Appears in 22 hymnals Matching Instances: 2 Lyrics: 1. Because I knew not when my life was good, And when there was a light upon my path, But turned my soul perversely to the dark, O Lord, I do repent. 2. Because I held upon my selfish road, And left my brother wounded by the way, And called ambition duty, and pressed on, O Lord, I do repent. 3. Because I spent the strength Thou gavest me In struggle which Thou never didst ordain, And have imperfect life to offer Thee, O Lord, I do repent. 4. Because I was impatient, would not wait, And thrust my willful hand across Thy threads, And marred the pattern drawn out for my life, O Lord, I do repent.

The Two Views

Author: William A. Dunkerley Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Matching Instances: 1 First Line: To man, it seemed that evil had prevailed Lyrics: 1. To man, it seemed that evil had prevailed, That His fair life had altogether failed, And naught was left but what the Cross impaled— But God saw otherwise! 2. They would have hailed Him King, and with acclaim, Upon the wings of His far reaching fame, Have swept the land like a devouring flame; But God saw otherwise! 3. It seemed as though His life had gone for naught— Nothing to show for that long battle fought, But a pale prisoner to the gibbet brought— But God saw otherwise! 4. No lasting good seemed ever like to come Of all His sowing—neither fruit nor bloom, Instead—a felon’s cross, an alien tomb— But God saw otherwise! 5. We, too, at times, come nigh to lose our hope, When with life’s evils we no more can cope, And in the dark with heavy hearts we grope; But God saw otherwise!

Vision From The Apocalypse

Author: William Alexander Meter: Appears in 3 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 First Line: I saw again. Behold! Heaven’s open door Lyrics: 1 I saw again. Behold! Heaven’s open door, Behold! a throne—the seraphim stood o’er it— The white-robed elders fell upon the floor, And flung their crowns before it. 2 I saw a wondrous book—an angel strong To Heaven and earth proclaimed his loud appeals— But a hush passed across the seraph’s song, For none might loose the seals. 3 Then, fast as rain to death cry of the year, Tears of St. John to that sad cry were given; It was a wondrous thing to see a tear Fall on the floor of Heaven! 4 And a sweet voice said, "Weep not, wherefore fails Eagle of God, thy heart, the high and leal? The Lion out of Judah’s tribe prevails To loose the seven-fold seal." 5 ’Twas Israel’s voice; and straightway, up above, Stood in the midst a wondrous Lamb, snow white, Heart-wounded with the deep sweet wounds of love, Eternal, infinite. 6 Then rose the song no ear had heard before; Then from the white-robed throng high anthem woke; And fast as spring-tide on the sealess shore The hallelujahs broke. 7 Who dreams of God when passionate youth is high, When first life’s weary waste his feet have trod— Who seeth angels’ footfalls in the sky, Working the works of God, 8 His sun shall fade as gently as it rose, Thro’ the dark woof of death’s approaching night His faith shall shoot, at life’s prophetic close, Some threads of golden light. 9 For him the silver ladder shall be set— His Savior shall receive his latest breath— He walketh to a fadeless coronet Up thro’ the gate of death.

The Sun Is Sinking O'er The Mountains Far

Author: Laura W. Rice Meter: Appears in 2 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 The sun is sinking o’er the mountains far, To shine in lands that lie beyond our sight; Thine own, Oh, Father! All earth’s nations are; O give them the Light. 2 Earth hath no shadow like Thy veiled face, No sunshine like the knowledge that Thou art. Shine forth, great Light! In every darkened place; Make glad each weary heart. 3 Shine in Thine messengers who bear Thy light, From home and dear ones though they dwell afar: Since Thou art with them, may they know no night. Be Thou their guiding star. 4 And when Heaven’s morning dawneth for us all, With earthly sun and shade forever past, From every land Thou wilt Thy children call, To dwell in light at last.
