And Can It Be That I Should Gain?

Author: Charles WesleyMeter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 240 hymnalsMatching Instances: 63Matching Instances: 63First Line: And can it be that I should gainLyrics: 1. And can it be that I should gain An interest in the Savior’s blood? Died He for me, who caused His pain— For me, who Him to death pursued? Amazing love! How can it be, That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me? Amazing love! How can it be, That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me? 2. ’Tis mystery all: th’Immortal dies: Who can explore His strange design? In vain the firstborn seraph tries To sound the depths of love divine. ’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore, Let angel minds inquire no more. ’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore; Let angel minds inquire no more. 3. He left His Father’s throne above So free, so infinite His grace— Emptied Himself of all but love, And bled for Adam’s helpless race: ’Tis mercy all, immense and free, For O my God, it found out me! ’Tis mercy all, immense and free, For O my God, it found out me! 4. Long my imprisoned spirit lay, Fast bound in sin and nature’s night; Thine eye diffused a quickening ray— I woke, the dungeon flamed with light; My chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. My chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. 5. Still the small inward voice I hear, That whispers all my sins forgiven; Still the atoning blood is near, That quenched the wrath of hostile Heaven. I feel the life His wounds impart; I feel the Savior in my heart. I feel the life His wounds impart; I feel the Savior in my heart. 6. No condemnation now I dread; Jesus, and all in Him, is mine; Alive in Him, my living Head, And clothed in righteousness divine, Bold I approach th’eternal throne, And claim the crown, through Christ my own. Bold I approach th’eternal throne, And claim the crown, through Christ my own.Used With Tune: SAGINAText Sources: Psalms and Hymns, 1738

Behold the Servant of the Lord

I wait Thy guiding eye to feel, To hear and keep Thy every word, To prove and do Thy perfect will, Joyful from my own works to cease, Glad to fulfill all righteousness. 2. Me if Thy grace vouchsafe to use, Meanest of all Thy creatures, me, The deed, the time, the manner choose, Let all my fruit be found of Thee; Let all my works in Thee be wrought, By Thee to full perfection brought. 3. My every weak, though good design, O’errule, or change, as seems Thee meet; Jesus, let all my work be Thine! Thy work, O Lord, is all complete, And pleasing in Thy Father’s sight; Thou only hast done all things right. 4. Here then to Thee Thy own I leave; Mold as Thou wilt Thy passive clay; But let me all Thy stamp receive, But let me all Thy words obey, Serve with a single heart and eye, And to Thy glory live and die.Used With Tune: SAGINAText Sources: Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1749

Faith Means We're Sure

Author: Susan H. PetersonMeter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 1 hymnalMatching Instances: 1Matching Instances: 1First Line: Faith means we're sure of what we hope to getLyrics: 1. Faith means we’re sure of what we hope to get; We’re certain of the things that we do not see. By faith we know that God made the world; What’s here now was not made from what was seen. Abel by faith offered God a better sacrifice; And Enoch, too, by faith died not, but from this life did rise. Though they are gone, they speak this word: That without faith, none can please the Lord. 2. It was by faith that Noah built the ark, When warned by God of things that were yet to pass. Since he had faith, God did spare his life, And made him an heir of His righteousness. Abraham, too, when God said to leave his home behind, Obeyed and went, though he knew not the land he was to find. Though they are gone, they speak this word: That without faith, none can please the Lord. 3. It was by faith that Abr’ham had a son, Then offered him to God as a sacrifice. Faith upheld Moses in Egypt’s land, And faith let a lamb pay the firstborn’s price. By faith the people passed through the sea as on dry land, And faith was why the walls of Jericho just could not stand. Though they are gone, they speak this word: That without faith, none can please the Lord. 4. All these still lived by faith until they died, Receiving not the things that had been made known. They only saw them as from afar; They knew that their country was not their own. God therefore was not ashamed to be named as their Lord; For they believed that He was real and would their faith reward. Oh, give me faith to trust Your Word, That by my life I may please You, Lord.Used With Tune: SAGINA

What light shall be their perfect guide? Thy Word, O Lord, will safely lead, If in its wisdom they confide. Sincerely I have sought Thee, Lord, O let me not from Thee depart; To know Thy will and keep from sin Thy Word I cherish in my heart. 2. O blessèd Lord, teach me Thy law, Thy righteous judgments I declare; Thy testimonies make me glad, For they are wealth beyond compare. Upon Thy precepts and Thy ways My heart will meditate with awe; Thy Word shall be my chief delight, And I will not forget Thy law.Used With Tune: SAGINAText Sources: The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: The United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912, number 322

A Last Prayer

Author: Helen Hunt JacksonMeter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 6 hymnalsMatching Instances: 1Matching Instances: 1First Line: Father, I scarcely dare to prayLyrics: 1. Father, I scarcely dare to pray, So clear I see, now it is done, How I have wasted half my day, And left my work but just begun. So clear I see that things I thought Were right or harmless were a sin; So clear I see that I have sought, Unconscious, selfish aims to win. 2. So clear I see that I have hurt The souls I might have helped to save; That I have slothful been, inert, Deaf to the calls Thy leaders gave. In outskirts of Thy kingdoms vast Father, the humblest spot give me; Set me the lowliest task Thou hast, Let me repentant work for Thee.Used With Tune: SAGINA

Modern Christianity

Author: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 1 hymnalMatching Instances: 1Matching Instances: 1First Line: How vainly do the heathen striveLyrics: 1. How vainly do the heathen strive To falsify our Master’s word, Who teach us that we may godly live Yet never suffer for our Lord; In ancient times the fact allow, But say, the world is Christian now. 2. Christian the world of drunkards is, The world of whoremongers and thieves, The slaves of foul and fair excess; Whoe’er the Christian rite receives, Led from the font at Satan’s will, Haters of Christ, and Christians still. 3. The devilish, and the sensual crowd, Who as brute beasts their lusts obey, Lovers of pleasure more than God, Who dance, and curse, and fight and play, Monsters of vice, our nature’s shame, All hell assumes the Christian name. 4. Yet still when Antichrist prevails, And Satan sits in Moses’ chair, The Gospel truths are idle tales, No cross, no Holy Ghost is there, The heathen world will Christian seem, And bid us take the rule from them. 5. The temple of the Lord are we, (The synagogue of Satan cry) We need not persecuted be Or cruelly ourselves deny: Come see, ye fools, who sigh and grieve, How much at ease we Christians live. 6. We are the men—of wealth and state, Of pomp, and fashionable ease, Honor, and power, and pleasure wait The silken sons of downy peace; And lo! we glide secure and even Down a broad flowery way—to Heaven. 7. While house to house, and field to field, And living we to living join The gazing crowd obeisance yield And praise the slick and smooth Divine Who saves them all the madman’s care, The drudgery of faith, and prayer. 8. No fanciful enthusiasts we To look for inspiration here, To dream from sin to be set free Or hope to feel the Spirit near, Or know our sins on earth forgiven, Or madly give up all for Heaven!Used With Tune: SAGINA (Short)Text Sources: The Unpublished Poetry of Charles Wesley, by S.

Object of All Our Knowledge Here

Author: Charles WesleyMeter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 1 hymnalMatching Instances: 1Matching Instances: 1First Line: Object of all our knowledge hereLyrics: 1. Object of all our knowledge here, Our one Desire, and Hope below, Jesus, the Crucified, draw near, And with Thy sad disciples go: Our thoughts and words to Thee are known, We commune of Thyself alone. 2. How can it be, our reason cries, That God should leave His throne above? Is it for man th’Immortal dies? For man, who tramples on His love? For man, who nailed Him to the tree? O Love! O God! He dies for me! 3. Why then, if Thou for me hast died, Dost Thou not yet Thyself impart? We hoped to feel Thy blood applied, To find Thee risen in our heart, Redeemed from all iniquity, Saved, to the utmost saved, thro’ Thee. 4. Have we not then believed in vain, By Christ unsanctified, unfreed? In us He is not ris’n again, We know not but He still is dead, No life, no righteousness we have, Our hopes seem buried in His grave. 5. Ah! Lord, if Thou indeed art ours, If Thou for us hast burst the tomb, Visit us with Thy quickening powers, Come to Thy mournful followers, come, Thyself to Thy weak members join, And fill us with the life divine. 6. Thee, the great Prophet sent from God, Mighty in deed and word we own; Thou hast on some the grace bestowed, Thy rising in their hearts made known; They publish Thee to life restored, Attesting they have seen the Lord. 7. Alas for us, whose eyes are held! Why cannot we our Savior see? With us Thou art yet still concealed: O might we hear one word from Thee! Speak, and to our unbelief reprove, Our baseness to mistrust Thy love. 8. Fools as we are, and slow of heart, So backward to believe the Word! The Prophets’ only aim Thou art: They sang the sufferings of their Lord, Thy life for ours a ransom given, Thy rising to ensure our Heaven. 9. Ought not our Lord the death to die, And then the glorious life to live? To stoop; and then to go up on high? The pain, and then the joy receive? His blood, the purchase price lay down, Endure the cross, and claim the crown? 10. Ought not the members all to pass The way their Head had passed before? Thro’ sufferings perfected He was, The garment dipped in blood He wore, That we with Him might die, and rise And bear His nature to the skies!Used With Tune: SAGINA (Short)Text Sources: Hymns for Our Lord's Resurrection (London: William Strahan, 1746), number 5

O God of Light

Author: Arthur S. Booth-ClibbornMeter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 5 hymnalsMatching Instances: 1Matching Instances: 1First Line: O God of light, O God of loveLyrics: 1. O God of light, O God of love, Shine on my soul from Heaven above! Let sin appear in Thy pure ray As black as on the judgment day; Let perfect love apply the test, And all that’s wrong make manifest. 2. O take Thy plummet and Thy line, Apply them to this heart of mine, And thus reveal each crooked place, By contrast with true righteousness! Let holy truth condemn each sham; Show what Thou art, and what I am. 3. O smite and spare not, faithful God! A Father’s hand still holds the rod; O make my sin-stained conscience smart, And write Thy law upon my heart So plainly, that my will shall bow In full surrender, here and now! 4. Work on in me Thy perfect will, In me Thy promise, Lord, fulfill; O make me quick to fight for Thee, And set my soul in liberty! My soul can rest in nothing less Than in a spotless holiness.Used With Tune: SAGINA (Short)Text Sources: Salvation Army's War Cry, April 13, 1895

O Happy Nation

Author: Isaac WattsMeter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 26 hymnalsMatching Instances: 1Matching Instances: 1First Line: O happy nation, where the LordLyrics: 1. O happy nation, where the Lord Reveals the treasure of His Word, And builds His Church, His earthly throne! His eye the heathen world surveys, He formed their hearts, He knows their ways; But God their maker is unknown. 2. Let kings rely upon their host, And of his strength the champion boast; In vain they boast, in vain rely; In vain we trust the brutal force, Or speed, or courage, of a horse, To guard his rider or to fly. 3. The eye of Thy compassion, Lord, Doth more secure defense afford When death or dangers threatening stand; Thy watchful eye preserves the just, Who make Thy name their fear and trust, When wars or famine waste the land. 4. In sickness, or the bloody field, Thou our physician, Thou our shield, Send us salvation from Thy throne: We wait to see Thy goodness shine; Let us rejoice in help divine, For all our hope is God alone.
