HymnHOW happy are they
      5 5 9, 5 5 9. 1 HOW happy are they Who the Saviour obey, And have laid up their treasure above! Tongue cannot express The sweet comfort and peace Of a soul in its earliest love. 2 That comfort was mine, When the favour divine I first found in the blood of the Lamb; When my heart it believed, What a joy it received, What a heaven in J ...read
HymnHOW happy are we
      5 5 9, 5 5 9. 1 HOW happy are we Who in Jesus agree To expect his return from above! We sit under our Vine, And delightfully join In the praise of his excellent love. 2 How pleasant and sweet, In his name when we meet, Is his fruit to our spiritual taste! We are banqueting here On angelical cheer, And the joys that eternally last. ...read
HymnHOW happy is the pilgrim's lot!
      8s & 6s. 1 HOW happy is the pilgrim's lot! How free from every anxious thought, From worldly hope and fear! Confined to neither court nor cell, His soul disdains on earth to dwell, He only sojourns here. 2 This happiness in part is mine, Already saved from self-design, From every creature-love; Blest with the scorn of finite good, My ...read
HymnHOW happy, gracious Lord! are we
      8s & 6s. 1 HOW happy, gracious Lord! are we Divinely drawn to follow thee, Whose hours divided are Betwixt the mount and multitude; Our day is spent in doing good, Our night in praise and prayer. 2 With us no melancholy void, No period lingers unemployed, Or unimproved, below; Our weariness of life is gone, Who live to serve our God a ...read
HymnHOW long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
      L.M. Psalm xiii. 1 HOW long wilt thou forget me, Lord? Wilt thou for ever hide thy face? Leave me unchanged, and unrestored, An alien from the life of grace? 2 How long shall l inquire within, And seek thee in my heart, in vain, Vexed with the dire remains of sin, Galled with the tyrant's iron chain? 3 How long shall Satan's rage p ...read
HymnHow lovely are thy tents, O Lord!
      6-8s. Psalm lxxxiv. 1 How lovely are thy tents, O Lord! Where'er thou choosest to record Thy name, or place thy house of prayer, My soul outflies the angel-choir, And faints, o'erpowered with strong desire, To meet thy special presence there. 2 Happy the men to whom 'tis given To dwell within that gate of heaven, And in thy house rec ...read
HymnHOW pleasant, how divinely fair,
      L.M. 1 HOW pleasant, how divinely fair, O Lord of hosts, thy dwellings are! With strong desire my spirit faints To meet the assemblies of thy saints. 2 Blest are the saints that sit on high, Around thy throne of majesty; Thy brightest glories shine above, And all their work is praise and love. 3 Blest are the souls that find a place ...read
HymnHOW sad our state by nature is!
      C.M. Mark ix. 24. 1 HOW sad our state by nature is! Our sin, how deep it stains! And Satan binds our captive souls Fast in his slavish chains. 2 But hark! a voice of sovereign grace Sounds from the sacred word; "Ho, ye despairing sinners, come, And trust upon the Lord!" 3 My soul obeys the Almighty's call, And runs to this relief ...read
HymnHOW shall a lost sinner in pain
      8s. 1 HOW shall a lost sinner in pain Recover his forfeited peace? When brought into bondage again, What hope of a second release? Will mercy itself be so kind To spare such a rebel as me? And O! can I possibly find Such plenteous redemption in thee? 2 O Jesus! of thee I inquire, If still thou art able to save? The brand to pluck out ...read
HymnHOW shall I walk my God to please,
      8s & 6s. For the same. 1 HOW shall I walk my God to please, And spread content and happiness O'er all beneath my care? A pattern to my household give, And as a guardian angel live, As Jesu's messenger? 2 The opposite extremes I see, Remissness and severity, And know not how to shun The precipice on either hand, While in the narrow p ...read
HymnHOW weak the thoughts, and vain,
      2-6s & 4-7s. 1 HOW weak the thoughts, and vain, Of self-deluding men! Men who, fixed to earth alone, Think their houses shall endure, Fondly call their lands their own, To their distant heirs secure. 2 How happy then are we, Who build, O Lord, on thee? What can our foundation shock? Though the shattered earth remove, Stands our city o ...read
HymnI AND my house will serve the Lord:
      8s & 6s. For the same. 1 I AND my house will serve the Lord: But first obedient to his word I must myself appear; By actions, words, and tempers show, That I my heavenly Master know, And serve with heart sincere. 2 I must the fair example set; From those that on my pleasure wait The stumbling-block remove; Their duty by my life explain ...read
HymnI ASK the gift of righteousness,
      C.M. 1 I ASK the gift of righteousness, The sin-subduing power, Power to believe, and go in peace, And never grieve thee more. 2 I ask the blood-bought pardon sealed, The liberty from sin, The grace infused, the love revealed, The kingdom fixed within. 3 Thou hear'st me for salvation pray, Thou seest my heart's desire; Made ready ...read
HymnI KNOW in whom I have believed,
      L.M. "I know whom I have believed, and am," &c. 2 Timothy i, 12. 1 I KNOW in whom I have believed, Who, when this precious faith he gave, My soul into his hands received, And bade me trust his power to save: His Spirit doth my heart assure, That what I still to him commend His constant love shall keep secure, Till faith filled up in sight ...read
HymnI KNOW that my Redeemer lives, And
      C.M. 1 I KNOW that my Redeemer lives, And ever prays for me; A token of his love he gives, A pledge of liberty. 2 I find him lifting up my head, He brings salvation near, His presence makes me free indeed, And he will soon appear. 3 He wills that I should holy be, What can withstand his will? The counsel of his grace in me He sure ...read
HymnI LONG to behold Him arrayed
      8s. 1 I LONG to behold Him arrayed With glory and light from above, The King in his beauty displayed, His beauty of holiest love: I languish and sigh to be there, Where Jesus hath fixed his abode; O when shall we meet in the air, And fly to the mountain of God! 2 With him I on Zion shall stand, (For Jesus hath spoken the word) The bre ...read
HymnI PRAISE thee, Lord, who o'er my foes
      L.M. Psalm xxx. 1 I PRAISE thee, Lord, who o'er my foes Hast raised my head in triumph high, Not slow to mark my secret woes, Not deaf to my desponding cry. I praise thee, Lord; my heart was faint, My feet were sinking to the grave, But thou wast nigh to hear my plaint, To hear, to heal me, and to save. 2 A moment, and thine anger dies ...read
HymnI SEEK the kingdom first,
      S.M. Matthew vi. 33. 1 I SEEK the kingdom first, The gracious joy and peace; Thou know'st I hunger, Lord, and thirst After thy righteousness; My chief and sole desire Thine image to regain, And then to join the heavenly choir, And with thine ancients reign. 2 My God will add the rest, Will outward good provide; But with thy kingdom i ...read
HymnI SEEM desirous to repent,
      C.M. Philippians ii. 13. 1 I SEEM desirous to repent, But cannot without thee Soften this hard heart, or lament My own obduracy; Gladly I would thy word believe, My dear Redeemer know, But neither can rejoice, nor grieve, Till thou the power bestow. 2 I would more sensibly distressed, Throughout this evil day Struggle to utter my requ ...read
