1: Tell Me the Story of Jesus
1. 
Tell me the story of Jesus;
Write on my heart every word.
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.
Tell how the angels, in chorus,
Sang as they welcomed His birth,
“Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth.”
Chorus
Tell me the story of Jesus;
Write on my heart every word.
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.
2. 
Fasting, alone in the desert,
Tell of the days that He passed,
How for our sins He was tempted,
Yet was triumphant at last.
Tell of the years of His labour;
Tell of the sorrow He bore;
He was despised and afflicted,
Homeless, rejected and poor.
3. 
Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,
Suffering in anguish and pain;
Tell of the grave where they laid Him,
Tell how He liveth again.
Love in that story so tender,
Clearer than ever I see;
Stay, let me say, “I will follow
Him who has suffered for me.”

We need never fear nor falter,
Grace and strength He doth impart.
4. 
Jesus only is our Master,
Sweet it is His will to do;
We would yield ourselves to serve Him,
With His chosen faithful few.

3: Jesus Came From Heaven Revealing
3: Jesus Came From Heaven Revealing
1. 
Jesus came from heaven revealing
God the Father here below,
All His truth to us declaring,
That we might His purpose know.
Chorus
Let us follow, ever follow,
In His steps, whate’er befall,
Looking always unto Jesus:,
In His Name we conquer all.
2. 
Deepest darkness is prevailing,
O’er the world on every side;
But if we will follow Jesus,
We shall in His light abide.
3. 
He has given His life a ransom,
That the prisoner might go free,
And has sent His servants warning
Men from coming wrath to flee.
4. 
Satan’s power will soon be broken,
When the Prince of Life appears;
Then the darkness will be over,
God shall wipe away our tears.

O God of Bethel! by whose hand
Thy people still are fed,
Who through this weary pilgrimage
Hast all our fathers led.

Our vows, our prayers we now present
Before Thy throne of grace;

Of their succeeding race.

Through each perplexing path of life
Our wandering footsteps guide;

And raiment fit provide.

Till all our wanderings cease;
And at our Father’s loved abode,
Our souls arrive in peace.

Our humble prayers implore;
And Thou shalt be our chosen God,
And portion evermore.

O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in Thee;
I give Thee back the life I owe,
That in Thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.
2. 
O Light, that follow’st all my way,
I yield my flick’ring torch to Thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in Thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.
3. 
O Joy, that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to Thee:
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.
4. 
O Cross, that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from Thee:
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

6: Jesus Calls Us O’er The Tumult
1. 
Jesus calls us o’er the tumult
Of this world’s wide sea,
Do not longer vainly wander,
Give thy heart to me.
Chorus
Take the yoke of Jesus ever,
If thou would’st be free;
This the source of true salvation,
Rest and liberty.
2. 
If your heart be oft disquieted,
Tossing to and fro,
And your life as days are passing
Seems to darker grow.
3. 
Many souls are bruised and broken,
Sighing for release,
Yet how few will follow Jesus,
Source of heavenly peace.
4. 
Hear the voice of wisdom calling,
Do not further go
In the ways of dark confusion,
And of endless woe.

7: Oh, How Sweet The Glorious Message
7: Oh, How Sweet The Glorious Message
1. 
Oh how sweet the glorious message,
Simple faith may claim;
Yesterday, today, for ever,
Jesus is the same.
Still He loves to save the sinful,
Heal the sick and lame;
Cheer the mourner, still the tempest,
Glory to His name!
Chorus
Yesterday, today, for ever,
Jesus is the same;
All may change, but Jesus never!
Glory to His name.
2. 
He who was the Friend of sinners,
Seeks thee, lost one, now;
Sinner, come, and at His footstool,
Penitently bow.
He who said, “I’ll not condemn thee,
Go, and sin no more,”
Speaks to thee that word of pardon,
As in days of yore.
3. 
Him who pardoned erring Peter,
Never need’st thou fear;
He that came to faithless Thomas,
All thy doubt will clear.
He who let the loved disciple
On His bosom rest,
Bids thee still, with love as tender,
Lean upon His breast.
4. 
He who mid the raging billows,
Walked upon the sea;
Still can hush our wildest tempest,
As on Galilee.
He who wept and prayed in anguish,
In Gethsemane,
Drinks with us each cup of trembling,
In our agony.

Where our Father dwells above.
Chorus
There’s a hand held out to you—
There’s a hand held out to me—
There’s a hand that will prove true,
Whatever our lot shall be.
2. 
Shall I to this hand extended,
Pay no heed as it invites?
Shall my Saviour be offended,
Give I not to Him His rights?
3. 
Nay, I would this proffered hand take,
Knowing that it leads aright;
Yes, I would this loving choice make,
Trusting in His love and might.
4. 
Then, as hand in hand together
With my Saviour, with my Friend,
With my Christ, my Elder Brother,
Let Him lead till life shall end.

12: In Tenderness He Sought Me
1. 
In tenderness He sought me,
Weary and sick with sin,
And on His shoulders brought me
Back to His fold again,
While angels in His presence sang,
Until the courts of Heaven rang.
Chorus
Oh, the love that sought me!
Oh, the blood that bought me!
Oh, the grace that brought me to the fold!
Wondrous grace that brought me to the fold!
2. 
He pointed to the nail-prints,
For me His blood was shed,
A mocking crown so thorny
Was placed upon His head;
I wondered what He saw in me,
To suffer such deep agony.
3. 
So while the hours are passing,
All now is perfect rest;
I’m waiting for the morning,
The brightest and the best.
When He will call us to His side,
To be with Him, His spotless bride.

Lord Jesus, lead— oh! lead me lest I stray,
Hold Thou my hand!
I fear the snares and pitfalls in the way,
Hold Thou my hand!
I am so weak and prone to go astray;
Guide Thou my feet lest I should miss the way.
2. 
Dear Lord, Thou’st always loved me, love me still
And keep me pure;
Break Thou my pride, subdue my stubborn will,
I’ll then walk sure.
If but my life might glorify Thee, Lord,
’Twould be well spent, and joy to me afford.
3. 
If my poor life can be of use to Thee,
I yield it all—
To Thee Who died upon the cruel tree,
And drank the gall;
I’ll walk with Thee, tho’ thorns are in the way
That pierced Thy feet— oh! let me never stray.

Down from Thy home above,
Salvation full and free,
Thy pardon and Thy love.

World-fetters all be riven,
And joy with suffering blent;

1. 
When I survey the wondrous cross,
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.
2. 
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the cross of Christ, my God,
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.
3. 
See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down;
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
4. 
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small,
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Give ear to His voice;
All heaven is anxious
Awaiting your choice.
Oh, grieve not His Spirit
Lest He should depart
And leave you for ever,
No hope in your heart.

Why halt ye and linger?

The tempter is saying,
“Wait some other day”;
How sad if you perish
Through turning away.

Refusing the light,
Unwilling to serve Him,
Denying the right.
Despising the Saviour,
How fearful the cost—

1. 
When the Saviour calls, will we ready be?
Will we answer back, “I have lived for Thee”?
Will we hear from Him the words, “Well done,
Enter into rest, thou faithful one”?
Chorus
Will we be ready our Lord to meet,
When we appear at the judgment seat?
Will we then be clothed with garments white?
Will our lamps be trimmed and all burning bright?
2. 
Are we building now, on the solid rock,
A house that the tempest can never shock,
That will stand secure for evermore,
When we all have crossed to the other shore?
3. 
Are we building now, on the drifting sand,
A house that can never the storm withstand?
Sad will be our end, if thus we build;
At last with grief we will be filled.
4. 
Let us therefore build as the Master said,
Let us take the Lord as our only Head;
And follow Him tho’ the world may sneer;
If we build on the rock, we need not fear.

2. 
The love of God within my heart will teach me how to do my part,

His strength shall bear thy spirit up,

Nor let thy foolish pride rebel;
Thy Lord for thee the cross endured,
To save thy soul from death and hell.

And calmly ev’ry danger brave;
’Twill guide thee to a better home,
And lead to vict’ry o’er the grave.

Through earth’s deep, dark shadows,
All alone He went for me,
O’er the cross He conquered,
All my hope to be.
3. 
Jesus, I love Thee, for I know Thou lovest me,
Then let me follow where Thy steps I see;
Be it light or shadow,
Let the way be rough or long,
Only Thy sweet pleasure
Be my ceaseless song.
4. 
When at the river should my courage fail or shrink,
Bear me, dear Jesus, as I near the brink;
Saviour, Sanctifier,
Make me pure from taint of sin,
Take me, then, forever
Heaven’s rest to win.

1. 
Jesus, the very thought of Thee
With sweetness fills my breast;
But sweeter far Thy face to see,
And in Thy presence rest.
2. 
No voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest name,
O Saviour of mankind!
3. 
Oh, hope of ev’ry contrite heart!
Oh, joy of all the meek!
To those who fall, how kind Thou art!
How good to those who seek!
4. 
But what to those who find? Ah, this
No tongue nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus what it is
None but His loved ones know.
5. 
Jesus! our only joy be Thou,
As Thou our prize wilt be;
Jesus! be Thou our glory now,
And through eternity.

1. 
The tender Shepherd’s voice
Has reached my troubled heart,
From all iniquity and sin
I long now to depart.
Chorus
Oh, receive me now,
Lord, I come to Thee;
Let Thy life, and love, and grace
Be magnified in me.

My life, my will I yield,
There’s naught I would withhold;
My weary heart desires the rest
And comfort of the fold.

I need Thy love and life
To quicken and preserve my soul
Amid earth’s toil and strife.

Hid in the heart of God.

31: I Was A Wand’ring Sheep
1. 
I was a wand’ring sheep,
I did not love the fold;
I did not love my Shepherd’s voice,
I would not be controlled:
I was a wayward child,
I did not love my home,
I did not love my Father’s voice,
I loved afar to roam.
2. 
The Shepherd sought His sheep,
The Father sought His child,
They follow’d me o’er vale and hill,
O’er deserts waste and wild:
They found me nigh to death,
Famish’d and faint and lone;
They bound me with the bands of love,
They saved the wand’ring one.
3. 
Jesus my Shepherd is,
’Twas He that loved my soul;
’Twas He that washed me in His blood,
’Twas He that made me whole;
’Twas He that sought the lost,
That found the wandering sheep;
’Twas He that brought me to the fold,
’Tis He that still doth keep.
4. 
I was a wand’ring sheep,
I would not be controlled;
But now I love my Saviour’s voice,
I love, I love the fold.
I was a wayward child,
I once preferred to roam;
But now I love my Father’s voice,
I love, I love His home.

Upon the cross, and freely shed
His precious blood— that crimson tide,
Was it for me the Saviour died?

Bread of life, so rich and free,
Untold wealth that never faileth,

Open’d life’s gate that they all might come in;
But they despis’d Him and harden’d their heart,
Cast out their Saviour and bade Him depart.
3. 
Tell me again how in sorrow He prayed;
All our transgressions on Jesus were laid;
None was found worthy for sin to atone,
Death’s bitter cup He must drink all alone.

Tell me again how the multitude scorns
Christ their Redeemer, and crowns Him with thorns;
Mock’d Him as king while they smote Him again;
Meekly He suffered, and did not complain.

Oh, be earnest; rise and follow—
Do not wait another day.

56: I Heard The Voice Of Jesus
56: I Heard The Voice Of Jesus
1. 
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down
Thy head upon My breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was—
Weary, and worn, and sad:
I found in Him a resting place,
And He has made me glad.
2. 
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold I freely give
The living water— thirsty one,
Stoop down, and drink, and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
Of that life-giving stream;
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
And now I live in Him.
3. 
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s Light:
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,
And all thy day be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
In Him my Star, my Sun;
And in that Light of life I’ll walk,
Till travelling days are done.

57: There Is A Way
1. 
There is a way, a narrow way,
That leads to life above—
A way of peace and holiness,
Of purity and love.
Chorus
My yearning soul desires to find
This hidden path of bliss;
Lord, hear my prayer, and lead me in
The way of holiness.
2. 
To find this way, this living way
We must forego our sin;
God has declared the pure in heart
Alone can enter in.
3. 
There is a way, a humble way,
A way of truth and grace;
The highway of God’s righteousness,
Where self can have no place.
4. 
There is a way, a perfect way,
His chosen walk therein;
And they who share His suff’ring now;
Eternal glory win.

58: None But Christ Can Satisfy
1. 
O Christ, in Thee my soul hath found,
And found in Thee alone,
The peace, the joy, I sought so long,
The bliss till now unknown.
Chorus
Now none but Christ can satisfy,
None other name for me!
There’s love and life and lasting joy,
Lord Jesus found in Thee!
2. 
I sighed for rest and happiness,
I yearned for them, not Thee;
But while I passed my Saviour by,
His love laid hold on me.
3. 
I tried the broken cisterns, Lord,
But, ah! the waters failed!
E’en as I stooped to drink they fled
And mocked me as I wailed.
4. 
The pleasures lost I sadly mourned,
But never wept for Thee,
Till grace the sightless eyes received,
Thy loveliness to see.

Pleasure and treasure, its glory beside;

Satan deceived as an angel of light,
Now I desire no path but Thine own;

Sitting at the feet of Jesus
With a broken, contrite heart,
Listening to His word so precious,

Comfort gives in times of trial,
Quickens every true desire,
Fills our hearts with love like Jesus’,
And with zeal it doth inspire,
Fills our hearts with love like Jesus’,
And with zeal it doth inspire.

This the one thing needful daily
As we walk in Jesus’ way.
Taking time to wait and listen,
And to hear what He would say;
Then with courage for the conflict,
And with heart and mind renewed,
Standing true and loyal to Jesus,
All our foes will be subdued,

Let us choose then to obey Him
And to humbly seek His face,
He will fill us with His Spirit,
And renew us by His grace,

And His still, small voice we’ll hear—
This the source of all true blessing,
When we know that He is near,
This the source of all true blessing,

To His path of life from varied ways of sin.
This is what He offers, nothing else will do,
But the life of Jesus Christ lived out in you.
Chorus
God’s salvation is the Christ within,
Giving daily vict’ry over sin;
Him as Lord, by lip and life confessed,
Walking in His footsteps to eternal rest.

Some compare their lives with lives of other men,
And by moral actions hope God’s home to gain;
Yet the best men living, unrenewed by God,
Must be shut forever from that blest abode.
3.

Make the Christ your Master, choose the path He trod;
Fear not to confess His name, and serve Him now,
Pow’r is yours, as daily to His will you bow.

A thousand choices bar my way;

Why Thou didst point the hardest path,
Ask’d me the straitest course to run.

83: Nearer, Still Nearer
1. 
Nearer, still nearer, close to Thy heart,
Draw me, my Saviour, so precious Thou art;
Fold me, O fold me close to Thy breast,
Shelter me safe in that “Haven of Rest,”
Shelter me safe in that “Haven of Rest.”
2. 
Nearer, still nearer, nothing I bring,
Naught as an off’ring to Jesus my King:
Only my sinful, now contrite heart,
Grant me the cleansing Thy blood doth impart,
Grant me the cleansing Thy blood doth impart.
3. 
Nearer, still nearer, Lord, to be Thine,
Sin, with its follies, I gladly resign;
All of its pleasures, pomp and its pride,
Give me but Jesus, my Lord crucified,
Give me but Jesus, my Lord crucified.
4. 
Nearer, still nearer, while life shall last,
Till all its struggles and trials are past;
Then thro’ eternity, ever I’ll be
Nearer, my Saviour, still nearer to Thee,
Nearer, my Saviour, still nearer to Thee.

84: Kindly Entreating
1. 
Kindly entreating: “Come unto Me,”
Jesus the Saviour is speaking to thee,
Earnestly saying: “Do not delay;
Flee from destruction, escape while you may,
Flee from destruction, escape while you may.”
2. 
Kindly entreating, “Come unto Me.”
Aimlessly drifting on life’s restless sea.
No hope, no refuge, where will you end?
Hasten to Jesus, your Saviour and Friend,
Hasten to Jesus, your Saviour and Friend.
3. 
Kindly entreating: “Come unto Me,”
Glory immortal your portion shall be.
Shame and dishonour wait those who stray
Far from the Saviour on ruin’s dark way,
Far from the Saviour on ruin’s dark way.
4. 
Kindly entreating, hear Him once more,
Soon you’ll be stranded on sin’s treach’rous shore.
Angels are weeping; do you not care
That you are drifting to endless despair,
That you are drifting to endless despair?

To dwell with Him in perfect peace,
And His forgiveness know.
Chorus
I am coming, heavy laden,
Wearied and oppressed;
Oh, receive me, though unworthy,
To Thy promised rest.
2. 
My troubled spirit knows no calm;
Why should I wander on,
And add to sorrow’s heavy load
Until this life is gone?
3. 
Abounding grace He has in store
To comfort, save and guide,
And pastures ever fresh and green
Where silent waters glide.
4. 
Oh, come, I hear Him calling still,
In tender tones and sweet;
The rest that is eternal rest
Awaits thy wandering feet.

Wait not until your day of grace is past,

And then awake, too late to count the cost,
Where the gulf cannot be crossed,

There’s a line that is drawn by rejecting our Lord,
Where the call of His Spirit is lost,
And you hurry along with the pleasure-mad throng—
Have you counted, have you counted the cost?
Chorus
Have you counted the cost, if your soul should be lost,
Tho’ you gain the whole world for your own?
Even now it may be that the line you have cross’d
Have you counted, have you counted the cost?
2. 
You may barter your hope of eternity’s morn,
For a moment of joy at the most,
For the glitter of sin and the things it will win—
Have you counted, have you counted the cost?

Ere the depth of His love you exhaust,
Won’t you come and be healed, won’t you whisper, “I yield—

So fast to bar the gate!

Forever I disclaim—
I will be Thine!
3. 
Whate’er Thou wilt I’ll do;
I will be Thine!
Gladly I’ll suffer, too;
I will be Thine!
Only possess my heart,
Bid sin and fear depart,
Oh, let us never part!
I will be Thine!

112: Out Of Christ
112: Out Of Christ
1. 
Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Oh! can it, can it be?
Like a ship without a rudder
On a wild and stormy sea!
Chorus
Oh! to be without a Saviour,
With no hope nor refuge nigh;
Can it be, O blessed Saviour,
One without Thee dares to die?
2. 
Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Lonely and dark the way;
With no light, no hope in Jesus,
Making bright the cheerless day.
3. 
Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Dark will the voyage be;
Clouds will gather, storms surround you,
Oh, to Christ for refuge flee.
4. 
Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Give to Him now your heart
Ere the door of mercy closes,
And you hear His word, “Depart.”

113: I Have Made My Choice
113: I Have Made My Choice
1. 
I have made my choice for ever,
I will walk with Christ my Lord;
Naught from Him my soul can sever
While I’m trusting in His word.
I the lowly way have taken,
Rough and toilsome tho’ it be;
And although despised, forsaken,
Jesus, I’ll go thro’ with Thee.
Chorus
Oh! ’tis Jesus guides my footsteps,
He has made my heart His home;
And I would not dare to journey
Thro’ this wide, wide world alone.
2. 
Tho’ the garden lie before me,
And the scornful judgment Hall;
Tho’ the gloom of deepest midnight
Settles round me like a pall.
Darkness can affright me never,
From Thy presence shadows flee;
And if Thou wilt guide me ever,
Jesus, I’ll go thro’ with Thee.
3. 
Tho’ the earth may rock and tremble,
Tho’ the sun may hide its face;
Tho’ my foes be strong and ruthless,
Still I dare to trust Thy grace,
Tho’ the cross my path o’ershadow,
Thou didst bear it once for me;
And whate’er the pain and peril,
Jesus, I’ll go thro’ with Thee.

114: Why Should I Walk
114: Why Should I Walk
1. 
Why should I walk in paths of night
Which give no peace nor pure delight?
My way is wrong; God’s way is right;
His way is seen in Jesus.
Chorus
The truth of God my heart has won,
He’ll finish what He has begun;
In earth or heaven there is none
Who can compare with Jesus.
2. 
Man’s wisdom leads into a maze,
And error grows in by-path ways,
But hearts are filled with joy and praise
Who see the truth in Jesus.
3. 
My human pow’r cannot avail,
In war with sin it can but fail;
By this alone I can prevail,
Receiving life in Jesus.
4. 
Tho’ sin assail me like a flood,
I’ll plead His name and precious blood;
The pure and spotless Son of God
And sinner’s Friend, is Jesus.

Yield all to Him who can bless you?
Come while you may, seek His face today,

God in His mercy, moved by His love,
Sent the Redeemer down from above,

Many on the downward road;
Careless of their soul’s salvation,
Heeding not the call of God,
Passing onward, passing onward,
Trampling on the Saviour’s blood.

Still we hear the fond entreaty
Of the ever gracious One:

Thy God and Guide o’er land and sea,
Thy bliss through all eternity,

Life at best is very brief,
Like the falling of a leaf,
Like the binding of a sheaf,

Fleeting days are telling fast,
That the die will soon be cast,
And the fatal line be passed,

Be in time, be in time,
While the voice of Jesus calls you,

If in sin you longer wait
You may find no open gate,
And your cry be just too late—

Fairest flowers soon decay,
Youth and beauty pass away,
Oh, you have not long to stay,

While God’s Spirit bids you come,
Sinner, do not longer roam,
Lest you seal your hopeless doom,
Be in time.
3. 
Time is gliding swiftly by,
Death and judgment drawing nigh,
To the arms of Jesus fly,

Oh, I pray you count the cost,
Ere the fatal line be crossed,
And your soul forever lost,

Then all heaven will rejoice,

Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me!

Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness;
Where is death’s sting? where, grave, thy victory?

Make known to us Thy leadings at this time—

Oft have we failed to wait and seek Thy face,
Oft have our hearts strayed from the lowly place.

Here we repent from all iniquity—
Cleanse us today;
We long to walk in fellowship with Thee,
So thus we pray;
Thou dost delight to put our wrongs aside,
As from our hearts we purpose to abide.

How can we stay?
Many a heart is sore with contemplating
The worldly way;
Open our eyes to see the awful need,

Prayer is a mighty source of power,
Without it we must surely fail;
While Moses prayed the enemies

And out of weakness make them strong,
And put their enemies to flight.

And forth to death their captives lead,
And they must perish if we cease
To watch and pray and intercede.

Souls wander on outside the fold,
And God looks down with pitying eye
On harvest great and labourers few,
While souls drift on in sin to die.
6. 
My brother, sister, walk with God,
With perfect hearts, sincere and true,
That souls now dead in sin may see
The life of Christ revealed in you.

138: The Heart Of God
138: The Heart Of God
1. 
The heart of God is always grieved
Unless His chosen people pray,
And seek His all-sufficient grace
To keep them in the evil day.
2. 
Prayer is the strong connecting link,
The vital, quick’ning, heav’nly flame
Which burns within the hearts of all
Who live to honour His great Name.
3. 
Effectual, fervent prayers shall bring
God’s richest blessings from above;
All prayer prevails with Him Who reigns
For evermore in sovereign love.
4. 
Prayer moves the loving heart of God
To grant these favours from on high—
A wise and understanding heart,
A clear, discerning, single eye.

I need Thy grace, O Lamb of God,
To aid me in the pilgrim way;
I tremble at the tempter’s power,
And feel my need to watch and pray.
2. 
Oh, let me now abide in Thee,
Thou art my shield and hiding-place;
Thy precious blood my only plea,
While waiting at the throne of grace.
3. 
Thy tender love and mercy, Lord,
Subdues this stubborn heart of mine;
It floods and fills my inmost soul,
And claims and makes me wholly Thine.
4. 
I come to Thee to find soul rest,
And nestle closer to Thy side;
How base the heart that would betray
The soul’s Redeemer, Friend and Guide.
5. 
Tho’ heaven and earth may pass away,
Thy word will stand forever sure;
The promise is, they shall be saved
Who faithful to the end endure.

No other refuge can I find;

True rest and peace of heart and mind.

I need Thy wisdom and Thy grace
To face the conflict day by day,
And bear the burden of the Lord,
With steps assured along the way.
3. 
I need Thy meek and gentle Christ
To still this stormy human breast;
To check the word, or deed, or thought,
Unworthy of its Holy Guest.
4. 
I need forgiveness, Saviour mine,
For oft I am like one astray;
And cleansing by Thy precious blood,
To keep me in Thy glorious way.
5. 
I rest content though poor I am;
Jehovah meets my every need;
I shall not want, He knows and gives
The riches of His grace indeed.

1. 
Oh! how sweet the words of Jesus,
As we journey on life’s way,
And we walk the narrow pathway,
We should always watch and pray.
Though the farther on we go,
And our God we learn to know,
Still we fall before the foe,
If we do not watch and pray.
Chorus
Watch and pray every day,
Watch and pray every day,
For the foe is always near—
We have need to watch and pray.
2. 
When at times the sun is shining,
And our path is bright as day,
We should take it as a warning
That we need to watch and pray;
For the foe is always near,
Though we cannot see he’s here,
But we have no need to fear,
If we only watch and pray.
3. 
In the times of deep depression
We may find there’s much to cheer;
If we’re conscious of temptation,
Still we need not faint nor fear;
When we seek our Father’s face,
He will grant the needed grace,
We may finish in the race
If we only watch and pray.

Hear us as we come, dear Saviour,

Oh! receive us, and transform us

We must bring with every offering,
Salt, the cov’nant of our God;
For if it is ever lacking,
Then our sacrifice is void.

Oh, how often God is grieved!
With our service doth find fault,
For our sacrifice is mingled
More with leaven than with salt.

If the salt hath lost its savour,
It is good for nothing then,
But to be cast on the highway,
Trodden ’neath the feet of men.

Far away, far away.”

For our sins He must atone.

Where the conflict fierce doth fall,

From all treachery retreating,
Hearts aflame with heav’nly love.

Hearts controlled by Him alone,
Who, tho’ death and anguish facing,
Pray, “Dear Lord, Thy will be done.”

Tender, warm, for rich and poor.
Lukewarm hearts God cannot cherish

Hearts, like Jesus, yielded wholly,
Counting all of earth but loss,
Hearts, who with His share, but gladly,
Sorrow, suff’ring and the cross.

163: O Bless The Lord, My Soul
163: O Bless The Lord, My Soul
1. 
O bless the Lord, my soul!
Let all within me join,
And aid my tongue to bless His name,
Whose favours are divine.
O bless the Lord, my soul,
Nor let His mercies lie
Forgotten in unthankfulness,
And without praises die.
2. 
’Tis He forgives thy sin,
’Tis He relieves thy pain,
’Tis He that heals thy sicknesses,
And makes thee young again.
He fills the poor with good,
He gives the sufferers rest;
The Lord has judgments for the proud,
And justice for th’ opprest.
3. 
God will not always chide;
But when His strokes are felt,
His strokes are fewer than our crimes,
And lighter than our guilt.
High as the heavens are raised
Above the ground we tread,
So far the riches of His grace
Our highest thoughts exceed.
4. 
The pity of the Lord
To those that fear His name,
Is such as tender parents feel:
He knows our feeble frame.
Our days are as the grass,
Or like the morning flower;
If one sharp blast sweep o’er the field,
It withers in an hour.

1. 
Help me to find Thee when I pray,
O God, this is my earnest plea;
The way is hid, my hope is dead,
If, Lord, I cannot meet with Thee.
Chorus
As pants the hart for water brooks,
So pants my soul, O Lord, for Thee:
Thou art my life, my hope, my all;
Draw near, I pray, draw near to me.
2. 
Thou art the answer to my prayer:
Oh, let me feel Thy presence near;
Thy living touch upon my heart,
Thy quick’ning word upon my ear.
3. 
The borders of Thy mercy, Lord,
Are spread to cover o’er my wrong,
That I may seek Thy face with joy,
And lift to Thee again my song.
4. 
For, Lord, Thou art the pilgrim’s Friend,
O go Thou with me on the way;
Let Thy blest presence be my shield;
Draw near to me, draw near, I pray.

Admitting Christ to dwell within,

Chorus
We thank Thee for the bread,
In it Thy life we see;
We thank Thee for the wine
Which means Thy blood was shed for me.
2. 
The way to Calvary
Unflinchingly He trod;
His life in sacrifice He gave,
Jesus, the Lamb of God.
3. 
The sins of all the world
Were on His shoulders laid,
He bowed His bloodstained head and died:
The ransom price was paid.
4. 
Our sins are washed away
In His own precious blood;
We plead for grace and strength to serve
And love Him as we should.

With sorrow in my heart,

And bade my sins depart.
3. 
I love His holy name,
Delight with Him to dwell;
The love of God, so sweet to me
My tongue can never tell.
4. 
It is His life that gives
Me power to walk with God,
And this is why I love the path
Where Jesus’ feet have trod.

And need the guidance of Thy loving hand.
Chorus
Dear Saviour, keep me by Thy side,
For my poor soul would always there abide;
When Thou art very near, Thy presence gives me cheer;
My soul shall know no fear when Thy hand doth guide.
2. 
Should sorrow’s dark night o’er my pathway spread
Rough stony places, where my feet shall tread;
In tender mercy all for me is planned,
That I might know the guidance of Thy hand.
3. 
Dear Saviour, lead me, lest my faith should fail,
And over me the power of wrong prevail;
Each rising tempest help me to withstand,
Grant unto me the guidance of Thy hand.

Bowed in deep humility;

Chorus
Calvary, Calvary,
We remember Calvary—
In the bread Thy broken body,
In the wine Thy blood we see.
2. 
In that night so dark with sorrow,
Left alone in prayer to bow,
See Him drink our cup of anguish,
Drops of blood upon His brow.
3. 
See Him led outside the city,
Bruised and bearing all our sin;
Cruel was the death He suffered,
Heaven’s joy for us to win.
4. 
Unto Him who loved and washed us
From our sins in His own blood,
We would render thanks, and plead for
Grace to love Him as we should.

Chorus
Counted in with the loyal, the brave and the true,
Counted in with the faithful, with Christ and the few;
Counted in, counted in,
With the faithful to be counted in.
2. 
It may not be my part in the conflict with sin,
In the front ranks of battle to fight;
But unhonoured, unknown, where He wants me alone,
I can faithfully stand for the right.
3. 
Satisfied if I know that my Lord is content
With the service I render each day;
I will stand at my post, where He needeth me most,
And will follow where He leads the way.

Open Thou mine inward ear,
Quicken all my soul to hear;
Help me never to rebel,
All self-will subdue, dispel;

Not redeemed with gold or silver,
But with precious blood I am;
Priceless was the ransom given—
God the Father’s spotless Lamb.
Chorus
It was Jesus, my Saviour,
Gave His life to ransom me;
Love beyond my comprehending,
When He suffered on Calvary.
2. 
Not redeemed to vainly squander
Time and talents He bestows;
Strength He gives to bear the burden,
Well this feeble frame He knows.
3. 
Not redeemed to live in pleasure,
While the precious moments fly,
Brief our span of life to labour,
Days and years pass swiftly by.
4. 
He redeemed me, oh, what mercy,
Greater love could never be;
God’s own Son so pure and holy
Was the sacrifice for me.

Sinful and black tho’ the past may have been,
Many the crushing defeats I have seen,
Yet on Thy promise, O Lord, now I lean,
Cleansing for me, cleansing for me.

Cleansing for me, cleansing for me.
From all the fears that would point me to doom,

Jesus, although I may not understand,
In childlike faith now I put forth my hand,
And through Thy word and Thy grace I shall stand
Cleansèd by Thee, cleansèd by Thee.

From all the care of what men think or say,
Cleansing for me, cleansing for me.
From ever fearing to speak, sing, or pray,

1. 
My heart o’erflows with praise to God alway,
For needed grace He gives me day by day,
Which is sufficient to enable me
To fight the battle, gain the victory;
How restful is my heart when this I know,
According to my need, He’ll grace bestow.
Chorus
The One who knows the trials of each hour,
Knows flesh would fail, how much I need His power;
What rest it brings my heart to hear Him say;
“I’ll give you grace, no power My hand can stay.”
2. 
Midst fiery trials and when tempted sore,
In tender care He points me to that door,
The entrance of the quiet secret place,
Where I can wait before the throne of grace.
While waiting there I’m cleansed from sin and fear,
My strength renewed, the way made plain and clear.
3. 
As in this present, evil world I see
So much that would defile and hinder me,
It surely causes me to cleave the more
Unto the Lord, and have His grace in store,
That in all things I may keep pure and clean—
Still live for things this world has never seen.
4. 
I long to live so that my life will show
How much it means such boundless grace to know,
That ev’ry weary, fearful soul I meet,
Who day by day is suffering from defeat,
Might thro’ his tears and sorrows see in me
What they could be thro’ grace, so rich and free.

Shut out from much that others have;
Not my will, Lord, but Thine.

And e’en tho’ disappointments come,
They, too, are best for me,
To wean me from this changing world,
And lead me nearer Thee.
5. 
Oh! for the peace of a perfect trust
That looks away from all,
Yet sees Thy hand in ev’rything,
In great events and small.

Directing for the best;

Now the frail vessel Thou hast made
No hand but Thine shall fill;
For the waters of this world have fail’d,
And I am thirsty still.

And here all day they rise;

And close at hand it lies,

To long-lov’d music set—
Glory to Thee for all Thy grace
I have not tasted yet.
3. 
Glory to Thee for strength withheld,
For want and weakness known,
And the fear that sends me to Thyself,
For what is most mine own.
I have a heritage of joy,
That yet I must not see,
But the hand that bled to make it mine,
Is keeping it for me.

My heart is resting, O my God!
My heart is in Thy care;
I hear the voice of joy and health
Resounding ev’rywhere,
“Thou art my portion,” saith my soul,
Ten thousand voices say,
And the music of their glad Amen
Will never die away.

He liv’d for me, He died for me,

By faith He dwells within my heart,
Imparting life to me;
His power and grace now keep my soul
From all defilement free.

Sweet, tranquil rest;
Blissful sense of preservation

I have proved His power to save me

Oh, to trust Him, then, more fully!

In the conscious, calm enjoyment
Of the Father’s love;
Knowing that life’s chequered pathway
Leadeth to His rest;

Deep unfathomable pleasure,

Thus, through earthen vessels only,

Reaching weary hearts and lonely,

Vessels worthless, broken, bearing

Thus, though worn, and tried, and tempted,
Glorious calling, saint, is thine;

Bearing wealth, God’s heart is prizing,
Glory from Christ’s blessed face.

Oh to be but emptier, lowlier,
Meek, unnoticed, and unknown,
And to God a vessel holier,
Filled with Christ and Christ alone!
Naught of earth to cloud the glory,
Naught of self the light to dim,
Telling forth His wondrous story,
Emptied— to be filled with Him.

2. 
The roses of the summer fade and die,
By autumn’s magic breezes scattered lie,
But nestled ’neath Thy shadow far from harm,
No blighting hand can smite me or alarm.
3. 
In Thee, dear Lord and Saviour I find peace,
Though round me surging billows never cease;
Sweet promise Thou hast given to be near,
Thy soft and gentle whispers my heart cheer.
4. 
As o’er my course I journey, hope shines bright,
A cloudless day awaits me after night;
Thy sheltering wings shall hide me till I meet
Thy smiling face, and worship at The feet.

When I pray;

For Thy voice,
To let the things Thou choosest

At Thy side,
To worship in Thy presence
And abide;

Safely there.

In Thy word,
To follow in the footsteps
Of my Lord;
And, Oh, the greatest longing,
Through Thy grace,
Is that mine eyes may see Thee
Face to face.

Saviour, hear my heartfelt prayer,

Love Thee more and more.
Chorus
Love Thee more, more and more;
Oh, enlarge this heart of mine,

Thy great love on Calvary
Touch my heart appealingly,
I would love Thee more.
3. 
Thou hast loved me unto death,
All my powers and will,
Gifts Thou lendest with my breath,

Comprehend it, no heart could,
Told in sacrifice.

Thirsting, longing, I would be
Filled with love’s immensity
Loving more and more.

Perfect in heart before Thee without blame;

Prove for yourself how great His love and power.

Wait on the Lord, when fierce the battle rages
’Gainst foes that seek to hinder from within,
Or foes without that would destroy and lure us
From God’s control, to darkness and to sin.

Lest you should be exalted and defiled;
Wait on the Lord that He may keep you humble,
Always sincere and simple as a child.

Ask thou of Him, and let Him ask of you:
Answer His prayers, and yours He’ll gladly answer:
Be true to Him, to you He will be true.

Wait on the Lord, be of good cheer and courage,
Follow His steps, obey His still, small voice;
Trust in His grace which is sufficient for you,
Then at the end with Him you will rejoice.

Glory immortal, beyond the dark grave,
Honour and glory, which never can fade;

Misunderstood, and by worldlings despised;
God understands me— this thought will suffice—
Bearing the cross I should ever rejoice.

Laying my life down, to spend and be spent;
Living or dying, I will not refrain,

How do I prize my calling, since Christ has made me free?

To live the truth throughout the daily home-life,

A life of overcoming,
A life of ceaseless praise,
Be this thy blessed portion
Throughout the coming days;
The victory was purchased
On Calvary’s cross for thee;
Sin shall not have dominion,
The Son hath made thee free.

Though all the path before thee
The hosts of darkness fill,
Look to thy Father’s promise,
And claim the victory still;
Faith sees the heavenly legions,
Where doubt sees nought but foes,
And through the very conflict
Her life the stronger grows.
4. 
More stern will grow the conflict
As nears our King’s return,
And they alone can face it
Who this great lesson learn,
That from them God asks nothing
But to unlatch the door,
Admitting Him, who through them,
Will conquer evermore.

A homeless Stranger amongst us came
To this land of sin and mourning;
He walked in a path of sorrow and shame,
Through insult, and hate and scorning.

A Man of Sorrows, of toils, of tears,
An outcast man and a lonely;
But He looked on me, and through endless years,
Him must I serve, Him only.

And then from this sad and sorrowful land,
This land of tears He departed;
But the light of His eyes, and the touch of His hand
Had left me broken-hearted.

And I clave to Him as He turned His face
From this land that was mine no longer,
The land I’d loved in the olden days,
Ere I knew the love that was stronger.

And follow His steps forever,
His people, my people— His God, my God,
In the land beyond the river.

May my daily walk and words and actions
Prove to all that Jesus lives in me.
2. 
I know the path is thorny
That Jesus trod down here,
The lowly Man of Sorrows,
Who faced earth’s scorn and sneer;
It calls for self-denial,
And bearing of the cross;
To be a true disciple
Means earthly pain and loss.
3. 
My heart shall be His temple,
And as He dwells within,
He’ll keep me pure and spotless,
Though compassed round with sin.
My members all, if yielded,
He’ll use in His employ,

Fills all my heart with joy.

212: A Broken, Contrite Heart
1. 
A broken and a contrite heart
Our God will not despise;
He longs to be our strength and shield,
To counsel and advise.
A contrite spirit is the price
To keep His storehouse open,
When we’re worthy He delights
To help and sympathize.
Chorus
All the yearnings of our hearts
Shall one day come to light;
If we sow like Jesus
In the Father’s might,
The fruit we bear will stand the test
And be among His jewels,
And our record left on earth
Will bear no trace of blight.
2. 
The race was never to the swift,
Nor battle to the strong;
The patient, frail, uncomely Man
Prevailed when all went wrong,
He fought each battle on His knees,
And took each vict’ry calmly;
Lived and died a sacrifice,
Rejected by the throng.
3. 
There’s vict’ry for the ones alone
Who keep the faith like Paul,
Who walk with God and hear His voice
And heed His every call;
Who keep their garments clean and white,
Though comrades fall and waver;
Such will cheer the heart of God
And be a help to all.

And thou shalt be glad for each test
That helped thee to value the lowly way,

215: He Knows Our Hearts
215: He Knows Our Hearts
1. 
He knows our hearts, what joy it brings Him,
To there behold a purpose true,
To do His will and seek refreshing,
From Him whose voice inspires anew.
He knows the trials and temptations,
And bids us seek His face alone
For grace to overcome, and live a life
More worthy of His “Well done.”
Chorus
He knows our hearts, let us keep them pure,
And show forth His continued care;
Abiding so His hand can lead and work
And seal all the fruit we bear.
2. 
His care can soften all our hardness,
Relieve when all seems dark and vain,
And fill our hearts with deeper purpose
To glorify His precious name.
How much He’s grieved if we’re not proving
His voice and presence always near,
So let us ever seek to prove His wondrous care,
Always count it dear.
3. 
He leads us, and by faith we follow,
With hearts united to His will,
His heart will plan, His hand deliver,
And show to us He leadeth still.
How much we see in Him to cheer us,
To keep us in the evil day!
Abiding so, that we may fruitful be,
Unceasingly watch and pray.

And legions of darkness against Him were hurled,
He knew that His blood was the price and not gold,
And offered His life for the lambs of His fold.

1. 
We thank Thee, Lord, for weary days,
When desert springs were dry,
And first we knew what depth of need
Thy love could satisfy;
Days when beneath the desert sun
Along the toilsome road,
O’er roughest ways we walked with One,
That One the Son of God.
2. 
We thank Thee for that rest in Him
The weary only know—
The perfect, wondrous sympathy
We needs must learn below;
The sweet companionship of One
Who once the desert trod;
The glorious fellowship with One
Upon the throne of God.
3. 
The joy no desolations here
Can reach, or cloud, or dim;
The present Lord, the living God,
And we alone with Him.
When in the glory and the rest
We joyfully adore,
Remembering the desert way,
We yet shall praise Him more.
4. 
Rememb’ring how, amid our toil,
Our conflict, and our sin,
He brought the water for our thirst,
It cost His blood to win;
And now in perfect peace we go
Along the way He trod,
Still learning from all need below
Depths of the heart of God.

Bravely tread the path with Jesus,

Strengthened by His heavenly Father,
Now He reigns upon the throne.
See the cruel shame He suffered
All alone on Calvary’s tree,
Yet His ardour ne’er diminished,
Even in Gethsemane.
Chorus
Alone He trod the wine-press,
He will ne’er forsake His own;
He will succour those who labour,
Weeping, praying, oft alone.
2. 
Stood alone before the rulers,
He their Saviour stood disowned;
Like a lamb before its shearers,
He was silent, unrenowned.
Fear not, then, to tread the wine-press,
With the Lord to lead and guide;
He who stood alone will succour
Those who in His love abide.
3. 
O’er all others now anointed
With the oil of gladness true,
Drinking in the Father’s kingdom
Of the wine that’s ever new;
And we soon shall share His glory,
If we share His suffering here,
As we stand among the victors,
God will dry our every tear.

In the world so dark and cold,
To My love they still are strangers,
For they are not of this fold.
On the mountain, bleak and dreary,
By the crags where shadows lie,
From the valley, in the evening,
I have heard their plaintive cry.
Chorus
Oh, My sheep, why wander
In the path of danger?
Hear the gentle Shepherd calling,
“I will bring thee home.”
2. 
Far they scatter o’er the desert,
In the wilderness they roam;
I must hasten out to find them
And to bring them safely home.
On My shoulders I will bear them,
And the lambs fold to my breast,
And the feet that are so weary
I will gently lead to rest.
3. 
They shall hear My voice and follow
Out where verdant pastures grow,
And at noonday I will guide them
Where the quiet waters flow.
Though I lead through vale and shadow
They shall follow without fear,
For My words will reassure them,

242: The Heart Of My Saviour
242: The Heart Of My Saviour
1. 
The heart of my Saviour is tender,
He knows every step that I take;
He is an unfailing Defender
When dangers my soul overtake.
His love and His grace will uphold me
When storm-clouds my soul may appal:
His strong, loving arms will enfold me,
Attentive His ear when I call.
2. 
The eyes of my Saviour ne’er slumber,
He sees every child of His fold;
Though scattered afar, few in number,
He guides them with love yet untold.
In wilderness vast and so dreary
Sweet manna fell down from on high,
And for the soul, thirsty and weary,
Their strong ’Rock of Ages’ was nigh.
3. 
The heart of my Saviour is tender,
He gave His own life for His sheep;
To Him all I have I surrender,
My life He is able to keep.
I’ll follow my Saviour unfearing,
My pilgrimage soon will be o’er;
The bright lights of home are appearing
Where I may have rest evermore.

And onward rejoicing I go.

His own strong right arm will protect me
Though fiercely the foes may assail,
I trust in the name of Jehovah,
And know I shall surely prevail.
3. 
His mercy and faithfulness never
Depart from the upright in heart,
He knoweth our frame and remembers
His Spirit and strength to impart.
4. 
He dwells with the meek and the lowly,
His counsel is sweet to their soul,
The heart that is humble and contrite
The Saviour delights to control.

244: Unerring One
1. 
Unerring One, the way Thou’st planned
Is still to most obscure,
From them ’tis hid, to babes revealed,
A little flock of poor.
2. 
The brightest intellect of men
Is dark and fails to see
The precious truth to those so clear,
Who thro’ the Son are free.
3. 
Home, friends are left, it seems so strange,
A wandering life to lead;
To most it seems a frenzied craze
To sow one’s life as seed.
4. 
That lonely One, rejected now,
Whose name is held to scorn,
Shall reign on earth the only King
On that millennial morn.
5. 
Suffering and hated outcast slaves,
Such is the chosen path
Of all who seek for heavenly gain,
Renouncing all of earth.
6. 
We may be glad and leap for joy,
The recompense is near;
To see His face and have His smile
Will banish all our fear.

Whate’er their tongue or race,

True monuments of grace.

When sounds the clarion call,
The Bride of Christ shall gathered be

Shepherd of Israel, Shepherd of love,
Watching Thy flock from the glory above!
Knowing how weary their wilderness way;
Praying for them— ever living to pray!

When the false hireling servant hath flown;
Laying Thy life down their pardon to win,
Shedding Thy blood to redeem them from sin!

Shielding Thy flock from each threatening harm;
Gath’ring the lambs as they falter and fall,
Safe in Thy bosom enfolding them all!

Soon to deliver Thy ’little flock’ here!
Just to behold Thee their richest reward—

1.

A waste and howling wilderness;
His loving heart was pained to see
My lost estate, my helplessness;
“Fear not,” said He, “thy Lord is nigh,
No ransomed soul need ever die.”

Oh love supreme, Oh sovereign grace
Which brought my Saviour from on high
To seek His sheep, and bring them home;
Dear as the apple of God’s eye.

Art thou pained to see His Kingdom suffer loss?
Throw thy soul into the conflict, do thy faithful, honest part,
As a patient, loyal bearer of the cross.

Ages have not dimmed the record of the souls who did their best—
Toiling, praying, sacrificing, bravely meeting every test.
And we have their simple message, tho’ they’ve entered into rest,
God’s own patient, loyal bearers of the cross.
3.

Where the burden is the greatest and the tears most often flow,
And tho’ worn and tried and tested, heaven’s beacons always glow

Throw wide its portals here.

267: Mine The Privilege
267: Mine The Privilege
1. 
God a body has prepared me,
He in it desires to dwell;
I will yield, I cannot longer
His unequalled love repel.
Chorus
Mine the privilege to labour
With the lowly Nazarene;
Mine to climb the heights, where others
Through their faithfulness have been.
2. 
I’ve surrendered all to Jesus,
I delight to do His will;
Anxious all His own good pleasure
In my life He may fulfil.
3. 
I am purposed nought shall hinder,
God shall have my very best;
How to gain His loving favour,
This my eager, earnest quest.
4. 
Mine to share in His rejection,
Mine to suffer for His sake,
Mine to bear the cross with patience,
Mine His glory to partake.

268: He Who Hath Led
1. 
He who hath led will lead,
All through the wilderness,
He who hath fed will surely feed,
He who hath blessed will bless;
He who hath heard thy cry
Will never close his ear;
He who hath marked thy faintest sigh
Will not forget thy tear.
Chorus
He loveth always, faileth never,
So rest on Him today, forever.
2. 
He who hath made thee whole
Will heal thee day by day;
He who hath spoken to thy soul
Hath many things to say;
He who hath gently taught
Yet more will make thee know;
He who so wondrously hath wrought
Yet greater things will show.
3. 
He who hath made thee nigh
Will draw thee nearer still;
He who hath given the first supply
Will satisfy and fill.
He who hath given thee grace
Yet more and more will send;
He who hath set thee in the race
Will speed thee to the end.
4. 
He who hath won thy heart
Will keep it true and free;
He who hath shown thee what thou art
Will show Himself to thee.
He who hath bid thee live
And made thy life His own,
Life more abundantly will give
And keep it His alone.

In the path that Jesus trod:

For the harvest field so wide;

Though all others may betray;
He will come to cheer and strengthen
As we love His truth and way.

And we know not where to go;
His own hand will lead unerring,
Though in tears we now may sow.

Gleams and burns the guiding Light;

O’er His ransomed people shed,
Chasing far the gloom and terror,

One the object of our journey,
One the faith which never tires,
One the earnest looking forward,
One the hope our God inspires:

One the march in God begun:

On the far eternal shore,

Reigns in love for evermore.

While He whispers in my ear—

His for ever, only His;
Who the Lord and me shall part?

279: Tell, O Tell The Wondrous Story
279: Tell, O Tell The Wondrous Story
1. 
I have heard the sweetest story
Ever told ’mongst mortal men;
This glad message, full of glory,
I would often hear again:
“’Twas for thee I wept and waited,”
Came a whisper to my soul,
“Cease, O cease, thy troubled toiling,
Sinner, I will make thee whole.”
Chorus
Tell, O tell the wondrous story,
O repeat it o’er again;
How the Christ, forsaking glory,
Came to die for sinful men.
2. 
Often I had pondered deeply
In this bosom, all forlorn,
O’er that message, falling sweetly
As the softest light of morn;
Overpow’r’d I fell before Him,
Owning Christ, my Lord of Love,
’Till my soul with joy was raptured,
Purest joy from heav’n above.
3. 
Christ is mine, and life eternal
Came to heal my bruisèd breast,
Hope divine, sweet vision vernal,
Harbinger of bliss and rest;
Banished far are hate and harming,
Gone for ever cruel pride;
Christ shall come, all doubt disarming,
Gath’ring loved ones to His side.
4. 
Once a mighty angel standing
On the land and on the sea,
Calleth forth, with voice commanding:
“Time no more, no more, shall be;”
Shalt thou call on rocks to hide thee
From that radiant, glorious Face,
Or, “blood-shelter’d,” safe, confide thee
In the glory of His grace?

Far from Thy wings:

Far from Thy wings:

All their need— Thy love supplying:
Take them, sinful, helpless, dying
Under Thy wings.

That fruit may thus abound,

The things of time have lost
Their charm for me;
Thy sacrifice that cost
So much to Thee
Doth show me what Thou art,
Helping this sinful heart
To choose the better part
Of serving Thee.

Forsaking all for Thee
I forward go,
From love of earth set free
While here below;

First place, and in Thy name

282: There Is No Gain
1. 
There is no gain but by a loss,
Thus Jesus taught, who bore the cross,
A corn of wheat to multiply,
Must fall into the ground and die;
Oh, should a soul alone remain
When it a hundred-fold may gain?
2. 
Who saves his life, or cross doth shun
Loses ten thousand, holding one,
And he who fain his life would spare
Keeps from the multitude their share;
Oh, who can hear the needy cry,
And yet refuse in love to die?
3. 
Wherever you ripe fields behold,
Waving to God their sheaves of gold,
Be sure some corn of wheat has died,
Some faithful life been crucified,
Someone has suffered, wept, and prayed,
And fought hell’s legions undismayed.

Rise, trim your lamps, be ready,
Dark night will soon be past,
The Bridegroom must be nearing,
Hold fast, till then hold fast.
2. 
As shades of night encircle,
Has faith given way to fear?
Or through the darkness gleaming
Does hope our spirits cheer?
Some by our side are sleeping,
Have loosed their precious hold;
Iniquity aboundeth,
Shall our love, too, grow cold?
3. 
Though others may prove faithless,
Keep true, ’tis not in vain,
Faith, hope, and love abideth,
And firm till death remain;
With steadfast mind and purpose
Abiding in His will,
Through lonely midnight watches
Keep watching, waiting still.

’Tis not in vain the foe to face,
The narrow way of life to take,
To victors be o’er self and sin,
Spend and be spent for Christ’s dear sake;
To face the lonely days and years
Strong in the strength which He can give;
From corn of wheat learn how to die,
That Christ again in us may live.
2. 
’Tis not in vain to learn to pray,
To honour Him though others sneer;
To do His will from day to day,
For then we feel His presence near.
E’en though the path lies dark ahead,
We cannot see His blessed face,
Constrained by love, we follow on,
And trust Him where we cannot trace.
3. 
’Tis not in vain, those gone before
Who died in faith, this truth have proved;
They fought the battle to the last,
Sufficient found His grace and love.
’Tis not in vain, we, too, shall know
That day when we surround the throne,
When Christ, before His Father’s face,
Shall call and claim us as His own.

Had I wealth and love in fullest measure,
And a name revered both far and near,
Yet no hope beyond, no harbour waiting,
Where my storm-tossed vessel I could steer;
If all things were mine but not the Saviour,
Who endured the cross and died for me;
Could then all the world afford a refuge,
Whither in my anguish I could flee?
3. 
Oh, what emptiness without the Saviour,
’Mid the sins and sorrows here below,
And eternity how dark without Him,
Only night and tears and endless woe!
What tho’ I might live without a Saviour,
When I come to die, what will it be?
Oh, to face the valley’s gloom without Him,
And without Him all eternity!
4. 
Oh, the joy of having all in Jesus,
What a balm the broken heart to heal!
Not a sin so great but He’ll forgive it,
Not a sorrow but His love can feel!
If I have but Jesus, only Jesus,
Nothing else in all the world beside,
Oh, then, ev’rything is mine in Jesus,
For my needs and more He will provide!

294: More Love To Thee
294: More Love To Thee
1. 
More love to Thee, O Christ!
More love to Thee;
Hear Thou the prayer I make
On bended knee;
This is my earnest plea,
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee.
More love to Thee.
2. 
Once earthly joy I craved,
Sought peace and rest;
Now Thee alone I seek,
Give what is best;
This all my prayer shall be,
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee.
More love to Thee.
3. 
Let sorrow do its work,
Come grief or pain;
Sweet are Thy messengers,
Sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me,
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee.
More love to Thee.
4. 
Then shall my latest breath
Whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry
My heart shall raise,
This still its prayer shall be,
More love, O Christ, to Thee,
More love to Thee.
More love to Thee.

295: How Blessed Are The Undefiled
295: How Blessed Are The Undefiled
1. 
How blessed are the undefiled
Amid sin’s waste and barren land,
Who walk God’s lowly way of life,
Led by a loving Father’s hand.
Chorus
By precious blood made nigh to God,
They follow where the Master trod.
2. 
How blessed are the undefiled
Who love His Holy Will and Way,
Whole-heartedly they walk therein,
Their Father, God, their strength and stay.
3. 
How blessed are the undefiled
Who will not be enticed aside,
With eyes anointed they behold
And walk with Jesus crucified.
4. 
How blessed are the undefiled
And pure in heart, who see His face,
With love unfeigned they worship Him,
Rejoicing in His truth and grace.

296: Jesus, Thy Life Is Mine
296: Jesus, Thy Life Is Mine
1. 
Jesus, Thy life is mine!
Dwell evermore in me,
And let me see
That nothing can untwine
Thy life from mine.
2. 
Thy life in me be shown!
Lord, I would henceforth seek
To think and speak
Thy thoughts, Thy words alone,
No more my own.
3. 
Thy love, Thy joy, Thy peace
Continuously impart
Unto my heart,
Fresh springs that never cease,
But still increase.
4. 
Jesus, my life is Thine
And evermore shall be
Hidden in Thee!
For nothing can untwine
Thy life from mine.

297: We Would See Jesus
297: We Would See Jesus
1. 
We would see Jesus— for the shadows lengthen
Across this little landscape of our life;
We would see Jesus, our weak faith to strengthen,
For the last weariness— the final strife.
2. 
We would see Jesus— the great Rock Foundation,
Whereon our feet were set with sovereign grace;
Not life, nor death, with all their agitation,
Can thence remove us, if we see His face.
3. 
We would see Jesus— other lights are paling,
Which for long years we have rejoiced to see;
The blessings of our pilgrimage are failing,
We would not mourn them, for we go to Thee.
4. 
We would see Jesus— this is all we’re needing,
Strength, joy, and willingness come with the sight;
We would see Jesus, dying, risen, pleading,
Then welcome day, and farewell mortal night!

298: Give Of Your Best
298: Give Of Your Best
1. 
Give of your best to the Master,
Give of the strength of your youth;
Throw your soul’s fresh glowing ardour
Into the battle for truth.
Jesus has set the example,
Dauntless was He, true and brave,
Give Him your loyal devotion,
Give Him the best that you have.
Chorus
Give of your best to the Master,
Give of the strength of your youth;
Clad in salvation’s full armour,
Join in the battle for truth.
2. 
Give of your best to the Master
Give Him first place in your heart;
Give Him first place in your service,
Consecrate ev’ry part.
Give, and to you shall be given,
God His beloved Son gave;
Gratefully seeking to serve Him,
Give Him the best that you have.
3. 
Give of your best to the Master,
Nought else is worthy His love;
He gave Himself for your ransom,
Gave up His glory above,
Laid down His life without murmur,
You from sin’s ruin to save;
Give Him your heart’s adoration,
Give Him the best that you have.

299: Moments Of Blessing
299: Moments Of Blessing
1. 
Rich are the moments of blessing,
Jesus, my Saviour, bestows;
Pure is the well of salvation,
Fresh from His mercy that flows.
Chorus
Ever He walketh beside me,
Brightly His sunshine appears,
Spreading a beautiful rainbow
Over the valley of tears.
2. 
Rich are the moments of blessing,
Lovely, and hallowed, and sweet,
When from my labour at noontide,
Calmly I rest at His feet.
3. 
Why should I ever grow weary?
Why should I faint by the way?
Has He not promised to give me
Strength for the toils of the day?
4. 
Tho’ by the mist and the shadow
Sometimes my sky may be dim,
Rich are the moments of blessing
Spent in communion with Him.

300: Pressing On
300: Pressing On
1. 
Evermore pressing on with the Saviour,
Never ceasing to labour and pray;
You will soon reach the end of the journey,
Do not weary or faint by the way.
Chorus
Pressing on, pressing on,
Evermore seek to labour and pray;
Keep your heart and your life
On the altar of service alway.
2. 
Evermore pressing on, do not linger,
See the shadows are falling around;
With the Saviour no evil can harm you,
Though the pitfalls and snares may abound.
3. 
Evermore pressing on in the footsteps
Of the Master who journeyed before,
And the faithful who now share His glory,
Where they hunger and thirst nevermore.
4. 
Evermore seek the friendship of Jesus,
All your life’s little day here below;
In the glory and rest He is waiting—
Let your praises unceasingly flow.

301: Patiently Continue
1. 
Patiently continue in the Way with Jesus,
Joyfully obeying the Father’s blessed will;
’Mid sin’s angry billows, hearken to Him calling
Over the waters saying “Peace, be still.”
2. 
“I will never leave thee,” sweetest words of comfort,
From the lips of Jesus who walked life’s troubled sea;
“Thou art not forsaken, I am with thee always,
Darkness or sunshine; ever follow Me.”
3. 
None so true and tender as the Man of Sorrows,
From this world’s illusions, oh, let Him keep thee free;
He will lead thee onward to inherit glory;
Riches unfading He will give to thee.
4. 
Patiently continue with Him in the conflict,
Patiently enduring with Him unto the end;
Numbered with His chosen, found among the faithful,
One on whom Jesus always can depend.

302: Time Is Passing
302: Time Is Passing
1. 
Time is passing, Oh! so quickly,
Days and years glide swiftly by;
Make the most of every moment,
For thou very soon must die.
Life’s short span will soon be over,
Never to return again;
Do not spend thy noble powers
On earth’s worthless treasures vain.
Chorus
Buy the gold undimmed, unchanging,
Buy the spotless raiment, white;
Rich and clothed, with eyes anointed
Daily walk in God’s pure light.
2. 
Time is ever speeding onward,
Nought can stay its rapid flight;
Soon the shadows slowly creeping
Shall proclaim the coming night.
O arise, be up and doing,
Labour now while it is day,
Seeking those eternal riches
Moth and rust cannot decay.
3. 
God is anxious to conform thee
To the image of His Son;
Fear lest thou should’st grieve His Spirit,
Mar the work He has begun.
God’s own precious truth is Jesus,
Sit in silence at His feet,
Learn of Him, the meek and lowly,
