Seite 146 - People and realms of every tongue Dwell on His love with sweetest song; And infant voices shall proclaim Their early blessings on His name. 4 Blessings abound where'er He reigns; The prisoner leaps to loose his chains; The weary find eternal rest, And all the sons of want are blest.
Seite 393 - A heart resigned, submissive, meek, My great Redeemer's throne ; Where only Christ is heard to speak ; Where Jesus reigns alone...
Seite 52 - SONGS of praise the angels sang, Heaven with hallelujahs rang, When Jehovah's work begun, When he spake and it was done. 2 Songs of praise awoke the morn, When the Prince of peace was born ; Songs of praise arose, when he Captive led captivity. 3 Heaven and earth must pass away, — Songs of praise shall crown that day: God will make new heavens and earth, — Songs of praise shall hail their birth.
Seite 31 - His sovereign power, without our aid, Made us of clay, and formed us men ; And when like wandering sheep we strayed, He brought us to his fold again.
Seite 347 - One family we dwell in him, One church above, beneath, Though now divided by the stream, The narrow stream of death. One army of the living God, To his command we bow ; Part of the host have crossed the flood, And part are crossing now.
Seite 97 - JOY to the world, — the Lord is come ; Let earth receive her King ; Let every heart prepare him room, And heaven and nature sing.
Seite 61 - From all that dwell below the skies, Let the Creator's praise arise ; Let the Redeemer's name be sung, Through every land, by every tongue. 2. Eternal are thy mercies, Lord ; Eternal truth attends thy word : Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, Till suns shall rise and set no more.
Seite 96 - BRIGHTEST and best of the sons of the morning! Dawn on our darkness and lend us Thine aid! Star of the East, the horizon adorning, Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid!
Seite 245 - Must I be carried to the skies On flowery beds of ease, While others fought to win the prize, And sailed through bloody seas ? 3 Are there no foes for me to face ? Must I not stem the flood ? Is this vile world a friend to grace, To help me on to God ? 4 Sure I must fight, if I would reign ; Increase my courage, Lord ! I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, Supported by thy word.
Seite 170 - O, help us, when our spirits bleed, With contrite anguish sore ; And when our hearts are cold and dead, O, help us, Lord, the more. 3 O, help us, through the prayer of faith, More firmly to believe ; For still the more the servant hath, The more shall he receive.
