He comes, the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure,
T'enrich the humble poor.
Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim, And heaven's eternal arches ring With thy belovéd name.
JESUS! the very thought is sweet;
In that dear name all heart-joys meet;
No word is sung more sweet than this ;
Jesus, the hope of souls forlorn!
No tongue of mortal can express,
O Jesus, King of wondrous might;
I LOOK to Thee in every need,
And all is well again :
Discouraged in the work of life,
Disheartened by its load,
I sink beside the road; —
Thy calmness bends serene above,
My restlessness to still ;
To nerve my faltering will ;
Embosomed deep in Thy dear love,
Held in Thy law, I stand;
And all things in Thy hand;
Hymns of the Spirit.
“CLING TO THE MIGHTY ONE.” –
CLING to the Mighty One,
Cling in thy grief;
He gives relief;
Cling in thy pain,
He will sustain.
Ps. lxxxix. 19.
Cling to the Living One,
Cling in thy woe,
Heb. vii. 25.
Other refuge have I none;
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee ! Leave, ah! leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me! All my trust on Thee is stayed ;
All my help from Thee I bring; Cover my defenceless head
With the shadow of thy wing !
Thou, O Christ, art all I want ;
More than all in Thee I find; Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick, and lead the blind! Just and holy is thy name,
I am all unrighteousness ; False and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.
Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
