Jesus, thy blood and righteousness

Jesus, thy blood and righteousness my beauty are, my glorious dress; midst flaming worlds, in these arrayed; with joy shall I lift up my head. Bold shall I stand in that great day, for who aught to my charge shall lay? Fully absolved through thee I am, from sin and…

Hark, the glad sound! The Saviour comes

Hark, the glad sound! The Saviour comes, the Saviour promised long; let every heart prepare a throne, and every voice a song. He comes, the prisoners to release, in Satan’s bondage held; the gates of brass before him burst, the iron fetters yield. He comes, from thickest films of vice…

Guide me, o my great redeemer

Guide me, O my great Redeemer, pilgrim through this barren land; I am weak, but you are mighty, hold me with your powerful hand: Bread of Heaven, bread of Heaven, Feed me now and evermore. Open now the crystal fountain where the healing waters flow; let the fiery, cloudy pillar…

Glorious things of thee are spoken

Glorious things of you are spoken, Zion, city of our God; he whose word cannot be broken formed you for his own abode: on the rock of ages founded, what can shake your sure repose? With salvation’s walls surrounded, you may smile at all your foes. See, the streams of…

Come O fount

Come O Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing your grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise: songs of God’s abundant treasure, sung by angel tongues above, songs that tell the boundless measure of my Lord’s unchanging love! I remember God’s great mercy:…

Abide with me

Abide with me, fast falls the eventide; the darkness deepens; Lord with me abide: when other helpers fail, and comforts flee, help of the helpless, O abide with me. Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day; earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away; change and decay in…
