O Wherefore Do the Nations Rage

Meter: Appears in 11 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 O wherefore do the nations rage, and kings and rulers strive in vain, against the Lord of earth and heav'n to overthrow Messiah's reign? 2 Their strength is weakness in the sight of him who sits enthroned above; he speaks, and judgments fall on them who tempt his wrath and scorn his love. 3 By God's decree his Son receives the nations for his heritage; the conqu'ring Christ supreme shall reign as King of kings, from age to age. 4 Be wise, ye rulers of the earth, and serve the Lord with godly fear; with rev'rent joy confess the Son while yet in mercy he is near. 5 Delay not, lest his anger rise, and ye should perish in your way; lo, all that put their trust in him are blest indeed, and blest alway.

By Precepts Taught of Ages Past

Author: Anonymous; John M. Neale Meter: Appears in 5 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. By precepts taught of ages past, Now let us keep again the fast, Which, year by year, in order meet Of forty days is made complete. 2. The law and seers that were of old In divers ways this Lent foretold, Which Christ Himself, the Lord and guide Of every season, sanctified. 3. More sparing therefore let us make The words we speak, the food we take, Deny ourselves in mirth and sleep, In stricter watch our senses keep. 4. In prayer together let us fall, And cry for mercy, one and all; And weep before the Judge, and say, O turn from us Thy wrath away. 5. Thy grace have we offended sore By sins, O God, which we deplore; Pour down upon us from above The riches of Thy pardoning love. 6. Remember, Lord, though frail we be, That yet Thine handiwork are we: Nor let the honor of Thy name Be by another put to shame. 7. Forgive the ill that we have wrought, Increase the good that we have sought; That we at length, our wanderings o’er, May please Thee now and evermore. 8. Blest Three in One, and One in Three, Almighty God, we pray to Thee, That Thou wouldst now vouchsafe to bless Our fast with fruits of righteousness.

All Mankind Fell in Adam's Fall

Author: Lazarus Spengler; Matthias Loy Meter: Appears in 13 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Creation fell in Adam's fall, one common sin infects them all; from sire to son the bane descends, and over all its curse impends. 2 Through all man's pow'rs corruption creeps and him in dreadful bondage keeps; in guilt he draws his infant breath and reaps its fruits of woe and death. 3 From hearts depraved, to evil prone, flow thoughts and deeds of sin alone; God's image lost, the darkened soul nor seeks nor finds its heav'nly goal. 4 But Christ, the second Adam, came to bear our sin and woe and shame, to be our Life, our Light, our Way, our only Hope, our only Stay. 5 As by one man all mankind fell and, born in sin, was doomed to hell, so by one Man, who took our place, we all received the gift of grace. 6 We thank thee, Christ: new life is ours, new light, new hope, new strength, new pow'rs: may grace our ev'ry way attend until we reach our journey's end!
