Representative Text

1 Didst thou dear Jesus suffer shame,
And bear the cross for me?
And shall I fear to own thy name,
Or thy disciple be?

2 Forbid it Lord that I should dread,
To suffer shame or loss;
O, let me in thy footsteps tread,
And glory in thy cross.

3 Inspire my soul with life divine,
And holy courage bold;
Let knowledge, faith and meekness shine,
Nor love nor zeal grow cold.

4 Say to my soul, why dost thou fear
The face of feeble man?
Behold thy heavenly Captain's here,
Before thee in the van.

5 O how my soul would up and run,
At this reviving word,
Nor any painful sufferings shun,
To follow thee, my Lord.

6 For this let men reproach, defame,
And call we what they will;
Lo! I may glorify thy name,
And be thy servant still.

7 To thee I cheerfully submit,
And all thy powers resign;
Let wisdom point out what is fit,
And I'll no more repine.

8 I'll cheerfully take up the cross,
And follow thee my Lord,
Submit to tortures, shame and loss,
At thy commanding word.

9 But this I promise to fulfil,
Through thy assisting grace,
For I am powerless and a weak will,
I must with shame confess.

10 But let thy grace sufficient be,
In every time of need;
Then Lord I'll boldly fight for thee,
And every time succeed.

In his youth he journeyed to England with a hardware pack, but eventually returning to Scotland, he followed the joint occupation of schoolmaster and poet. In 1783, during a famine in Scotland he was reduced to great destitution, and had to earn his bread by breaking stones on the highway. Most of his publications (from 30 to 40 in all) were produced after that period. The two works in which we are interested are:— (1) Hymns and Spiritual Songs. In Three Books. 1759. (2) A New Version of the whole of the Book of Psalms in Metre; by James Maxwell, S. D. P. [Student of Divine Poetry.] Glasgow, 1773. From the former of these the following hymns are in common use:— 1. All glory to t… Go to person page >
