All in All

Come, though we can truly sing

Author: John Murray
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Cone, tho' we can truly sing,
In our flesh dwells no good thing;
Yet on him who gives us all,
We're embolden'd still to call.

2 Blind, and foolish once were we,
Christ our wisdom now we see;
In this wisdom we confide,
By this we are justifi'd;

3 Once in breaking God's command,
Doom'd to death beneath his hand;
Now we're call'd to own, and bless,
Jesus Christ our righteousness.

4 Without purity of heart
Truth divine will say depart,
But this holiness we find,
In the Saviour of mankind.

5 Many, mighty are our foes!
Human these, angelic those,
Where for refuge shall we flee?
Christ our great redemption see!

6 Seraphs, flames of sacred fire,
View this myst'ry with desire;
Hark! the bright enraptur'd throng
Catch, and raise the grateful song.

7 O ye thrones of heav'nly light,
Since you're sav'd from endless night,
And since we are rais'd to you,
Let us still the song pursue.

These were the earliest Universalist hymns written in America. Murray is regarded as the founder of the Universalist denomination in the United States and was minister of… Go to person page >
