THOU ART THE WAY: TO THEE ALONE

1.THOU art the Way : to Thee aloneFrom sin and death we flee :And he who would the Father seekMust seek Him, Lord, by Thee.
2.Thou  art  the  Truth:Thy  wordalone True wisdom can impart; Thou only canst Inform the mind, And purify the heart.
3.Thou art the Life: the rending tombProclaims Thy  conquering arm; And those who put their trust in Thee Nor death nor hell shall harm.
4.Thou art the Way. the Truth, theLife: Grant us that Way to know, That Truth to keep, that Life to win, Whose joys eternal flow.    Amen.

ONE WHO IS ALL UNFIT TO COUNT

1.ONE who is all unfit to countAs scholar in Thy school,Thou of Thy love hast named a friend O kindness wonderful!
2.So weak am I, O gracious Lord,So all unworthy Thee, That e'en the dust upon Thy feet Outweighs me utterly.
3.Thou dwellest in unshadowed light,All sin and shame above That Thou shouldst bear our sin and shame, How can I tell such love?
4.Ah, did not He the heavenly throneA little thing esteem, And not unworthy for my sake A mortal body deem?
5.When In His flesh they drove the nails, Did He not all endure? What name is there to fit a life So patient and so pure?
6.So, Love itself in human form, For love of me He came; I cannot look upon His face For shame, for bitter shame.
7.If there is aught of worth in me, It comes from Thee alone; Then keep me safe, for so. O Lord,Thou keepest but Thine own.

THOU SAY'ST: TAKE UP THY CROSS

1.THOU say'st: Take up thy cross, O man, and follow Me,The night is black, the feet are slack; Yet we would follow Thee.
2.But, O dear Lord, we cry, That we Thy face could see : Thy blessed face one  moment's space Then might we follow Thee.
3.Dim tracts of time divideThose golden days from me; Thy voice comes strange o'er years of change; How can we follow Thee?
4.Comes faint and far Thy voiceFrom vales of Galilee;Thy vision fades in ancient shades? How should we follow Thee?
5.O heavy cross—of faithIn what we cannot see :As once of yore Thyself restore, And help to follow Thee.
6.If not as once Thou earnestIn true humanity,Come yet as Guest within the breast That burns to follow Thee.
7.Within our heart of heartsIn nearest nearness be;Set up Thy throne within Thine own; Go, Lord—we follow Thee

JESUS CALLS US! O'ER THE TUMULT

1.JESUS calls us! O'er the tumultOf our life's wild restless sea,Day by day His sweet voice soundeth, Saying:   Christian, follow Me
2.As, of old, apostles heard ItBy the Galilean lake, Turned from home and toll and kindred, Leaving all for His dear sake.
3.Jesus calls us from the worshipOf the vain world's golden store,From each Idol that would keep us,Saying : Christian, love Me more 
4.In our Joys and In our sorrows,Days of toll and hours of ease, Still He calls, in cares and pleasures, That  we  love Him  more  than these.
5.Jesus calls us I By Thy mercies,Saviour, make us hear Thy call,Give our hearts to Thine obedience,Serve and love Thee best of all.

O THOU, WHOM ONCE THEY FLOCKED TO HEAR

1.O THOU, whom once they flocked to hear,Thy words to hear. Thy power to feel; Suffer the sinners to draw near, And graciously receive us still
2.They that be whole. Thyself hast said, No need of a physician have; But I am sick, and want Thine aid, And want Thine utmost power to save.
3.Thy power,and truth,and love divine, The same from age to age endure; A word, a gracious word of Thine, The most inveterate plague can cure.
4.Helpless howe'er my spirit lies,And long hath languished at the pool, A word of Thine shall make me rise, And speak me in a moment whole.
5.Make this the acceptable hour; Come,O my soul's physician Thou! Display Thy sanctifying power, And show me Thy salvation now. Amen.

HEAL US, IMMANUEL; HEAR OUR PRAYER;

1.HEAL us,Immanuel; hear  our prayer;We wait to feel Thy touch: Deep-wounded souls to Thee repair; And, Saviour, we are such.
2.Our faith Is feeble, we confess; We faintly trust Thy word : But wilt Thou pity us the less? Be that far from Thee, Lord.
3.Remember him who once applied With trembling for relief; Lord, I believe! with tears he cried, O help my unbelief!4.She, too, who touched Thee In the press, And healing virtue stole, Was  answered:   Daughter,  go  In peace, Thy faith hath made thee whole.
5.Like her, with hopes and fears we come, To touch Thee, If we may: O send us not despairing home, Send none unhealed away. Amen.

HEARD THE VOICE OF JESUS SAY

1.I HEARD the voice of Jesus say :    Come unto Me and rest; Lay down, thou weary one, lay downThy 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.
3.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.
3.1 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 foundIn Him my star, my sun; And in that light of life I'll walk Till travelling days are done.

JESUS, THY FAR-EXTENDED FAME

1.JESUS, Thy far-extended fameMy drooping soul exults to hear; Thy name, Thy all-restoring name, Is music In a sinner's ear.
2.Sinners of old Thou didst receiveWith comfortable words and kind, Their sorrows cheer, their wants relieve, Heal the diseased, and cure the blind.
3.And art Thou not the Saviour still,In every place and age the same? Hast Thou forgot Thy gracious skill, Or lost the virtue of Thy name?
4.Faith in Thy changeless name Ihave;The good,the kind  physician, Thou Art able now our souls to save, Art willing to restore them now.
5.Wouldst  Thou the body's health restore, And not regard the Sin-sick soul? The sin-sick soul Thou lov'st much more, And surely Thou shalt make It whole.
6.All my disease, my every sin,To Thee, O Jesus, I,confess;In pardon, Lord, my cure begin,And perfect it in holiness.

WHAT MEANS THIS EAGER, ANXIOUS THRONG

1.WHAT means this eager, anxious throng,Which moves with busy haste along,These wondrous gatherings day by day?What means this strange commo¬tion, pray?In accents hushed the throng reply:Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
2.Who is this Jesus? Why shouldHe The city move so mightily? A passing stranger, has He skill To move the multitude at will? Again the stirring tones reply : Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
3.Jesus! 'tis He who once belowMan's pathway trod 'mid pain and woe; And burdened  ones, where'er He came, Brought out their sick, and deaf, and lame : The blind rejoiced to hear the cry : Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
4.Again He comes! From place to place His holy footprints we can trace, He pauseth at our threshold—nay, He enters—condescends to stay; Shall we not gladly raise the cry? Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
5.HO! all ye heavy laden, come, Here's pardon, comfort, rest, and home; Ye wanderers from a Father's face, Return, accept His proffered grace; Ye  tempted…

WHO IS HE, IN YONDER STALL

1.WHO Is He, In yonder stall,At whose feet the shepherds fall?
Tis the Lord! O wondrous story! Tis the Lord, the King of Glory!At His feet we humbly fall;Crown Him, crown Him Lord of all.
2.Who Is He, In yonder cot, Bending to His toilsome lot?
3.Who Is He, In deep distress,Fasting in the wilderness?
4.Who Is He that stands and weepsAt the grave where Lazarus sleeps?
5.Lo, at midnight, who Is He Prays In dark Gethsemane?
6.Who Is He, In Calvary's throes, Asks for blessings on His foes?
7.Who is He that from the grave Comes to heal and help and save?
8.Who Is He that from His throne Rules through all the worlds alone?

THOU DIDST LEAVE THY THRONE AND THY KINGLY CROWN

1.THOU dldst leave Thy throneAnd Thy kingly crown,When Thou earnest to earth for me; But In Bethlehem's home Was there found no roomFor Thy holy nativity :O come to my heart, Lord Jesus;There is room In my heart for Thee.
2.Heaven's arches rangWhen the angels sang,Proclaiming Thy royal degree;But of lowly birthCam'st Thou, Lord, on earth, And In great humility :O come to my heart, Lord Jesus; There is room to my heart for Thee.
3.The foxes found rest,And the birds their nest,In the shade of the cedar-tree;But Thy couch was the sod,O Thou Son of God, In the deserts of Galilee:O come to my heart, Lord Jesus; There is room In my heart for Thee.
4.Thou earnest, O Lord,With the living wordThat should set Thy people free; But, with mocking scorn And with crown of thorn,They bore Thee to Calvary :O come to my heart, Lord Jesus;Thy Cross Is my only plea.
5.When heaven's arches ring,And her choirs shall sing,At Thy coming to victory,Let Thy voice call me home,Saying :   Yet there i…

AND DIDST THOU LOVE THE RACE THAT LOVED NOT THEE

1.AND didst Thou love the race that loved not Thee? And didst Thou take to heaven a human  brow? Dost plead with man's voice by the marvellous  sea? Art Thou his kinsman now? 
2.O God, O kinsman, loved, but not enough 0 Man, with eyes majestic after death !Whose feet have tolled along our pathways rough, Whose lips drawn human breath!
3.By that one likeness which Is ours and Thine,By that one nature which doth hold us kin, By that high heaven where, sinless,Thou dost shine,To draw us sinners in;
4.By Thy last silence In the Judgement hall, By long foreknowledge of  the deadly tree, By darkness, by the wormwood and the gall,1 pray Thee visit me.
5.Come, lest this heart should, cold and cast away, Die ere  the Guest adored  she entertain Lest  eyes  that  never  saw  Thine earthly day Should miss Thy heavenly reign. 

WE SAW THEE NOT WHEN THOU DIDST COME

1.WE saw  Thee  not  when  Thou didst comeTo this poor world of sin and death,Nor e'er beheld Thy cottage homeIn that despised Nazareth; But we believe Thy footsteps trod Its streets and plains, Thou Son of God. 2.We did not see Thee lifted highAmid that wild and savage crew, Nor heard Thy meek, imploring cry: Forgive,they know not what they do! Yet we believe the deed was done, Which shook the earth and veiled the sun.
3.We stood not by the empty tombWhere late Thy sacred body lay, Nor sat within that upper room,Nor met Thee in the open way; But we believe that angels said : Why seek the living with the dead?
4.We did not mark the chosen few,When  Thou didst through the clouds ascend,First lift to heaven their wondering view, Then to the earth all prostrate bend; Yet we believe that mortal eyes Beheld that journey to the skies.
5.And now that Thou dost reign on high, And thence Thy waiting people bless, No ray of glory from the sky Doth shine upon our wilderness; But we believe Thy …

JESUS, WHO LIVED ABOVE THE SKY

1.JESUS, who lived above the sky,     Came down to be a man and die; And in the Bible we may see How very good He used to be.
2.He went about—He was so kind— To cure poor people who were blind; And many who were sick and lame, He pitted them and did the same.
3.And more than that. He told them, too, The things that God would have them do; And was so gentle and so mild, He would have listened to a child.
4.But such a cruel death He died He was hung up and crucified;And those kind hands that did such good, They nailed them to a cross of wood.
5.And so He died—and this Is whyHe came to be a man and die;The Bible says He came from heaven,That we might have our sins forgiven.

WHEN THE LORD OF LOVE WAS HERE

1.WHEN the Lord of Love was here,Happy hearts to Him were dear, Though. His heart was sad; Worn and lonely for our sake, Yet He turned aside to make All the weary glad.
2.Meek and lowly were His ways;From His loving, grew His praise,From His giving, prayer : All the outcasts thronged to hear; All the sorrowful drew nearTo enjoy His care.
3.When He walked the fields,He drew From the flowers, and birds, and dew,Parables of God; For within His heart of love All the soul of man -did move,God had His abode.
4.Fill us, Lord, with Thy desireAll the sinful to inspireWith the Father's life; Free us from the cares that press On the heart of worldllness,From the fret and strife.
5.Lord, be ours Thy power to keep,In the very heart of griefAnd In trial, love; In our meekness to be wise, And through sorrow to ariseTo our God above.      Amen.

WHAT GRACE, O LORD, AND BEAUTY SHONE

1.WHAT grace, O Lord, and beauty shoneAround Thy steps below; What patient love was seen In all Thy life and death of woe!
2.For ever on Thy burdened heartA weight of sorrow hung, Yet no ungentle, murmuring word Escaped Thy silent tongue.3.Thy foes might hate, despise, revile,Thy friends unfaithful prove. Unwearied  in  forgiveness still, Thy heart could only love.
4.O give us hearts to love like Thee,Like Thee, O Lord, to grieveFar more for others' sins, than allThe  wrongs  that we receive.
5.One with Thyself, may every eyeIn us, Thy brethren, see The gentleness and grace that Spring From union. Lord, with Thee.

MY SONG IS LOVE UNKNOWN

1.MY song Is love unknown;My Saviour's love to me;Love to the loveless shown,That they might lovely be.O who am IThat for my sake, My Lord should takeFrail flesh, and die?
2.He came from His blest Throne,Salvation to bestow :But men made strange, and noneThe longed-for Christ would know.But O my Friend!My Friend indeed,Who at my needHis life did spend.
3.Sometimes they strew His way,And His sweet praises sing;Resounding all the day,Hosannas to their King.Then :  Crucify! Is all their breath, And for His deathThey thirst and cry.4.Why, what hath my Lord done? What makes this rage and spite? He made the lame to run, He gave the blind their sight. Sweet injuries! Yet they at these Themselves  displease, And 'gainst Him rise.
5.They rise and needs will have My dear Lord made away; A murderer they save; The Prince of life they slay. Yet cheerful He To suffering goes, That He His foes From thence might free.
6.In life, no house, no homeMy Lord on earth might have;In death, no friendly t…

LET EARTH AND HEAVEN COMBINE

1.LET earth and heaven combine,Angels and men agree,To praise in songs divineThe incarnate Deity,Our God contracted to a span,Incomprehensibly made man.
2.He laid His glory by,He wrapped Him In our clay; Unmarked by human eye, The latent Godhead lay; Infant of days He here Became, And   bore   the   mild   Immanuel's
3.Unsearchable the loveThat hath the Saviour brought; The grace Is far aboveOr man or angel's thought: Suffice for us that God, we know, Our God, is manifest below.

5.Made perfect first in love,And sanctified by grace, We shall from earth remove, And see His glorious face : Then shall His love be fully showed, And man shall then be lost in God.

GOD FROM ON HIGH HATH HEARD

1.GOD from on high hath heard;Let sighs and sorrows cease;The skies unfold, and lolDescends the gift of peace.
2.Hark I on the midnight airCelestial voices swell; The hosts of heaven proclaim God comes on earth to dwell.

IN THE BLEAK MID-WINTER

1.IN the bleak mid-winter,
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter,
Long ago.

2.Our God, heaven cannot hold Him,
Nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away
When He comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter
A stable-place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty,
Jesus Christ.

3.Angels and archaJigels
May have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim
Thronged the air;
But His mother oJily,
In her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the Beloved
With a kiss.

4.What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd,
I would bring a Iamb;
If I were a wise man,
I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him—
Give my heart.

THE MAKER OF THE STIN AND MOON, THE MAKER OF OUR EARTH

1.THE Maker of the stin and moon,
The Maker of our earth,
Lo! late in time, a fairer boon,
Himself is brought to birth.

2.How blest was all creation then,
When God so gave increase;
And Christ, to heal the heartsof men,
Brought righteousness and peace.

3.No star in all the heights of heaven
But burned to see Him go;
Yet unto earth alone was given
His human form to know.

4.His human form, by man denied,
Took death for human sin ;
His endless love, through faith descried,
Still lives the world to win.

5.0 perfect Love, outpassing sight,
O Light beyond our ken,
Come down through all the world tonight,
And heal the hearts of men!
Amen.

STUPENDOUS HEIGHT OF HEAVENLY LOVE

1.STUPENDOUS height of heavenly love,
Of pitying tenderness divine;
It brought the Saviour from above,
It  caused the  springing day to shine;
The sun of righteousness to appear,
And gild our gloomy hemisphere.

2.God did in Christ Himself reveal,
To chase our darkness by His light,
Our sin and Ignorance dispel,
Direct our wandering feet aright;
And bring our souls, with pardon
blest, To realms of everlasting rest.

3.Come then, O Lord, Thy light impart,
The faith that bids our terrors cease;
Into Thy love direct our heart,
Into Thy way of perfect peace;
And cheer the souls of death afraid,
And guide them through the dreadful shade.

4.Answer Thy mercy's whole design,
My God incarnated for me;
My spirit make Thy radiant shrine,
My light and full salvation be;
And through the shades of death
unknown Conduct me to
Thy dazzling throne.
Amen.

GLORY BE TO GOD ON HIGH

1.GLORY be to God on high,
And peace on earth descend :
God comes down. He bows the sky,
And shows Himself our Friend :
God the Invisible appears :
God, the blest, the great I AM,
Sojourns in this vale of tears,
And Jesus Is His name.

2.Him the angels all adored,
Their Maker and their King;
Tidings of their humbled Lord
They now to mortals bring.
Emptied of His majesty,
Of His dazzling glories shorn,
Being's source begins to be,
And God Himself Is bornl

3.See the eternal Son of God
A mortal Son of Man;
Dwelling in an earthly clod,
Whom heaven cannot contain.
Stand amazed, ye heavens, at this :
See the Lord of earth and skies;
Humbled to the dust He Is,
And in a manger lies.

4.We, the sons of men, rejoice,
The Prince of Peace proclaim;
With heaven's host lift up our voice,
And shout Emmanuel's name :
Knees and hearts to Him we bow;
Of our flesh and of our bone,
Jesus is our Brother now,
And God Is all our own.

FROM THE EASTERN MOUNTAINS PRESSING ON

1.FROM the eastern mountains
Pressing on they come,
Wise men in their wisdom,
To His humble home,
Stirred by deep devotion,
Hasting from afar,
Ever Journeying onward,
Guided by a star.

2.There their Lord and Saviour
Meek and lowly lay,
Wondrous light that led them
Onward on their way,
Ever now to lighten
Nations from afar,
As they Journey homeward
By that guiding star.

3.Thou who in a manger
Once hast lowly lain,
Who dost now in glory
O'er all kingdoms reign,
Gather in the lieathen,
Who in lands afar
Ne'er have seen the brightness
Of Thy guiding star.

4.Gather in the outcasts,
All who have gone astray,
Throw Thy rutliiinco o'er them,
Guide them on their way,
Thoso who nnvnr know Thee,
Thoso who havo wnmlored far,
Guide tliom by l.hn brightness
Of Thy guiding ndir.

5.Onward through the darkness
Of the lonely night,
Shining still before them
With thy kindly light,
Guide them, jew and gentle,
Honeward from afar
Young and old together,
By Thy guiding star.

AS WITHBTHE GLADNESS MEN OF OLD

1.AS with gladness men of old 
Did the guiding star behold,
As with Joy they hailed Its light,
Leading onward, beaming bright;
So, most gracious Lord, may we
Evermore be led to Thee.

2.As with loyful steps they sped,
Saviour, to Thy lowly bed,
There to bend the knee before
Thee, whom heaven and earth adore;
So may we with willing feet
Ever seek the mercy-seat.

3.As they offered girts most rare
At Thy cradle rude and bare;
So may we with holy Joy,
Pure, and free from sin's alloy,
All our costliest treasures bring,
Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King.

4.Holy Jesus, every day Keep us in the narrow way;
And, when earthly things are past,
Bring our ransomed souls at last
Where they need no star to guide,
Where no clouds Thy glory hide.

5.In the heavenly country bright
Need they no created light;
Thou its light, its joy, its crown,
Thou Its sun which goes not down;
There for ever may we sing
Hallelujahs to out- King.   
Amen.

THE FIRST NOWELL THE ANGEL DID SAY

1 THE first Nowell the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
in fields as they lay :
In fields where they lay a-keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel.

2.They looked up and Baw a star,
Shining in the east, beyond them far,
And to the earth it gave great light,
And so It continued both day and night.

3.And by the light of that same star,
Three wise men came from country far;
To seek for a King was their Intent,
And to follow the star wherever It went.

4.This star drew nigh to the north-west,
O'er Bethlehem It took its rest,
And there It did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

5.Then entered in those wise men three,
Pull reverently upon their knee,
And offered there in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frank-incense.

6.Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our Heavenly Lord,
That hath made heaven and earth of nought,
And witn His blood mankind hath bought.

WHILE SHEPHERDS WATCHED THEIR FLOCKS BY NIGHT

1.WHILE shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All  seated on  the  ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shorn around.

2.Fear not ! said he; for mighty dread
Had siezed thier troubled mind :
Glad tidings of great Joy i bring
To you and all  mankind.

3.To you, In David's town, this day
Is born, of David's line,
A Saviour, who la Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign :

4.The heavenly Babe you there shall
And To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swaddling bands
And in a manger laid.

5.Thus spake the seraph; and forth¬with
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, and thus
Addressed their joyful song :

6.All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Good will henceforth from heaven to men
Begin and never cease!     
Amen.

IT CAME UPON THE MIDNIGHT CLEAR

1.IT came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold :
Peace on the earth, good-will to men,
From heaven's all-gracious King!
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.

2.Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled;
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The  blessed .angels sing.

3.But with the Woes of sin and strife
The world  has suffered  long;
Beneath the angel strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong;
And man, at war with man, hears not
The love song which they bring:
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing.

4.And ye, beneath life's crushing load
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow—
Look now! for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing :
O rest beside…

A VIRGIN MOST PURE, AS prophets do tell

1.A VIRGIN most pure,as the prophets do tell,
Hath brought forth a Baby, as it hath befel,
To be our Redeemer from  death,hell, and sin,
Which Adam's transgression hath .wrapped us in.
And therefore be merry, set sorrow aside;
Christ Jesus our Saviour was born on this tide.

2.In Bethlehem in Jewry, a city there was
Where Joseph and Mary together did pass,
All for to be taxSdwlth many one moe,
For C£esar commanded the same should be so.

3.But when they had entered the city so fair,
A number of people so mighty was there,
That Joseph and Mary, whose sub¬stance was small,
Could find in the inn there no lodging at all.

4.Then were they constrained in a stable to lie,
Where horses and asses they used for to tie :
Their lodging so simple they took it no scorn,
But against the next morning our Saviour was born.

5.The King of all kings to this world being brought,
Small store of fine linen to wrap Him was sought,
But  when  she  had  swaddled  her young son so sweet,
Within an ox-manger sh…

GIVE HEED, MY HEÀRT, LIFT UP THINE EYES

1. GIVE heed, my heart, lift up thine eyes:
Who is it in yon manger lies?
Who is this child so young and fair?
The blessed Christ Child lieth there.

2. Ah, Lord, who hast created all,
How hast Thou made  Thee weak and small,
That Thou must choose Thy Infant
bed Where ass and ox but lately fed?

3. Were earth a thousand times as fair,
Beset with gold and Jewels rare,
She yet were far too poor to be
A narrow cradle, Lord, for Thee.

4. Ah, dearest Jesus, holy child,
Make Thee a bed, soft, undented,
Within my heart, that it may be
A quiet chamber kept for Thee.

5. My heart for very Joy doth leap,
My lips no more their silence keep;
I too must sing with Joyful tongue
That sweetest ancient cradle-song:

6. Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with pious mirth
A glad new year to all the earth.

CRADLED IN A MANGER

1. CRADLED In a manger, meanly   
Laid the Son of Man His head;
Sleeping His first earthly slumber
Where the oxen had been fed.
Happy were those shepherds listening
To the holy angel's word;
Happy they within that stable,
Worshipping their infant Lord.

2. Happy all who hear the message
Of His coming from, above;
Happier still who hall His coming,
And with praises greet His love.
Blessed Saviour, Christ most holy,
In a manger Thou didst rest;
Canst Thou stoop again, yet lower,
And abide within my breast?

3. Evil things are there before Thee;
In the heart, where they have fed,
Wilt Thou pitifully enter,
Son of Man, and lay Thy head?
Enter, then, O Christ most holy;
Make a Christmas in my heart;
Make a heaven of my manger :
It is heaven where Thou art.

4. And to those who never listened
To the message of Thy birth,
Who have winter, but no Christmas
Bringing them Thy peaceonearth,
Bend to these the Joyful tidings;
By all people, in each home,
Be there heard the Christmas an¬them :
Pr…

LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

1. LITTLE town of Bethlehem,   
How still we Bee thee lie !
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by:
Yet in thy dark street shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met In thee to-night.

2. 0 morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth,
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth;
For Christ Is born of Mary;
And, gathered all above,
While mortals sleep.the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.

3. How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given !
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may hear His coming;
But In this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him, still
The dear Christ enters In.

4. O holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter In;
Be born in us to-day.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Immanuel.       Amen.

SEE, AMID THE WINTER'S SNOW

1. SEE, amid the winter's snow,
Born for us on earth below,
See, the Lamb of God appears,
Promised from eternal years.

      Hail, thou ever-blessSd mornl
      Hail, redemption's happy dawn!
      Sing through all Jerusalem:
      Christ is born in Bethlehem!

2. LO, within a manger lies
He who built the starry skies,
He who, throned in height sublime,
Sits amid the cherubim.

3. Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
What your Joyful news to-day;
Wherefore have ye left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep?

4. As we watched at dead of night,
Lo, we saw a wondrous light:
Angels, singing peace on earth,
Told us of the Saviour's birth,


5. Sacred Infant, all divine,
What a tender love was Thine,
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this !

6. Teach, O teach UB, holy Child,
By Thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble Thee
In Thy sweet humility.

STILL THE NIGHT, HOLY THE NIGHT!

1. STILL the night, holy the night!
Sleeps the world; hid from sight,
Mary and Joseph in stable bare
Watch o'er the Child beloved and fair,
Sleeping In heavenly rest.

2. Still the night, holy the night !
Shepherds first saw the light,
Heard resounding clear and long,
Far and near, the angel-song,
Christ the Redeemer is here!

3. Still the night, holy the night!
Son of God, O how bright
Love is smiling from Thy face !
Strikes for us now the hour of grace,

BRIGBTEST AND BEST OF THE SONS OF THE MORNING

1.BRIGBTEST 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.

2.Cold on His cradle the dew-drops are shining;
Low lies His head with the beasts of the  stall;
Angels adore Him in slumber reclining,
Maker, and Monarch, and Saviour of all.

3.Say, shall we yield Him, In costly devotion,
Odours of Edom, and offerings divine,
Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean,
Myrrh  from the forest or gold from the mine?

4.Vainly we offer each ample oblation;
Vainly  with  gifts  would His favour secure;
Richer by far Is the heart's adora¬tion;
Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

5.Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,
Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid;
Star of the East, the nonzon adorning,
Guide where our infant Redeemer Is laid.

ALL MY HEART THIS NIGHT REJOICES

1.ALL my heart this night rejoices,
As I hear, far and near,
Sweetest angel voices :
Christ is  born ! their choirs are singing,
Till the air, everywhere, Now with Joy is ringing.

2.Hark! a voice from yonder manger,
Soft and sweet, doth entreat:
Flee from woe and danger;
Brethren, come;from all doth grieve you,
You are freed; all you need I will surely give you.

3.Come then, let us hasten yonder;
Here let all, great and small,
Kneel in awe and wonder,Love Him who with love
Is yearning; Hall the Star, that from far
Bright with hope Is burning.

4.Thee, O Lord, with heed I'll cherish,
Live to Thee, and with Thee Dying,
shall not perish, But shall dwell with
Thee for ever Par on high, In the Joy
That can alter never.

MY HEART AND VOICE I RAISE

1.MY heart and voice I raise, To spread Messiah's praise; Messiah's praise let all repeat; The universal Lord, By whose almighty word Creation rose in form complete.
2.A servant's form He wore,And In His body boreOur dreadful curse on Calvary :He like a victim stood,And poured His sacred blood,To set the guilty captives free.
3.But soon the Victor rose Triumphant o'er His foes, And  led  the vanquished host in chains : He threw their empire down, His foes compelled to own O'er all the great Messiah reigns.
4.With mercy's mildest grace,He governs all our raceIn wisdom, righteousness, and love : Who to Messiah fly Shall find redemption nigh,And all His great salvation prove.
5.Hall, Saviour, Prince of Peace Thy kingdom shall Increase,Till all the world Thy glory see, And righteousness abound As the great deep profound,And fill the earth with purity.

LET EARTH AND HEAVEN AGREE

3.Jesus, harmonious name It charms the hosts above; They evermore proclaim And wonder at His love; Tis all their happiness to gaze, Tis heaven to see our Jesu's face.
4.His name the sinner hears,And is from sin set free; TIs music in his ears, Tis life and victory; New songs do now his lips employ, And dances his glad heart for Joy.
5.Stung by the scorpion sin,My poor expiring soul The healing sound drinks in, And Is at once made whole : See there my Lord upon the tree ! I hear, I feel, He died for me.
6.O unexampled love O all-redeeming grace! How swiftly didst Thou move To save a fallen race : What shall I do to make it known What Thou *or all mankind…

4.In Him is only good,In me is only ill;My ILL but draws His goodness forth, And me He loveth still.
5."Tis He who saveth me,And freely pardon gives;I love because He loveth me, I live because He lives.
6.My life with Him Is hid,My death has passed away,My clouds have melted Into light, My midnight into day.


JESUS, THESE EYES HAVE NEVER SEEN

1.JESUS, these eyes have never seen   That radiant form of Thine; The veil of sense hangs dark between Thy blessed face and mine.
2.1 see Thee not, I hear Thee not, Yet art Thou oft with me; And earth hath ne'er so dear a spot, As where I meet with Thee.
3.Like some bright dream that comes unsought, When slumbers o'er me roll, Thy Image ever fills my thought, And charms my ravished soul.
4.Yet, though I have not seen, andstill Must rest in faith alone; I love Thee, dearest Lord, and will, Unseen but not unknown.
5.When death these mortal eyes shall seal, And still this throbbing heart, The rending veil shall Thee reveal All glorious as Thou art.


JESU, LOVER OF MY SOUL, LET ME TO THY BOSOM FLY

1.JESU, Lover of my soul,Let me to Thy bosom fly, While the nearer waters roll,While the tempest still is high: Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,Till the storm of life be past; Safe Into the haven guide,O receive my soul at last.
2.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 headWith the shadow of Thy wing.
3. 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.
4.Plenteous grace with Thee is found, Grace to cover all my sin; Let the healing streams abound,Make and keep me pure within: Thou of life the fountain art, Freely let me take of Thee, Spring Thou up within my heart, Rise  to  all eternity.     Amen.

4.Our restless spirits yearn for Thee,Where'er our changeful lot Is cast; Glad when Thy gracious smile we see, Blest when our faith can hold Thee fast.
5.0 Jesus, ever with us stay;Make all our moments calm and bright;Chase the dark night of sin away;Shed o'er the world Thy holy light.Amen.

JESUS, THE VERY THOUGHT OF THEE, WITH SWEETNESS FILLS MY BREAST

1.JESU, the very thought of Thee ,    With sweetness fills my breast; But sweeter far Thy face to see, And In Thy presence rest.
2.Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, Nor can the memory find A sweeter  sound  than  Thy  blest name, O Saviour of mankind 
3.O Hope of every contrite heart, O 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 Nor tongue nor pen can show: The love of Jesus, what it Is None but His loved ones know.
5.Jesu, our only joy he Thou,As Thou our prize wilt be; Jesu, be Thou our glory now, And  through  eternity.     Amen.

2.No word Is sung more sweet than this, No name is heard more full of bliss, No thought brings sweeter comfort nigh Than Jesus, Son of God most high. 
3.1  seek for Jesus in repose, When round my heart its chambers close; Abroad, and when I shut the door, I  long  for Jesus  evermore.
4.With Mary in the morning gloom I seek for Jesus at the tomb; For Him, with love's most earnest cry, I seek with heart and not with eye.
5.Jesus, to God the Father gone, Is seated on the heavenly throne: My heart hath also passed from me, That where He is there it may be.
6.We follow Jesus now, and raise The voice of prayer, the hymn of praiseThat He at last may make us meetWith Him to gain the heavenly seat.

JESUS, THE FIRST AND LAST ON THEE MY SOUL IS CAST

1.JESUS, the First and Last, On Thee my soul is cast: Thou didst Thy work begin By blotting  out my sin; Thou wilt the root remove, And perfect me in love.

1.O LORD and Master of us all,Whate'er our name or sign,We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call,We test our lives by Thine.

3.Our thoughts He open to Thy sight; And, naked to Thy glance, Our secret sins are In the light Of Thy pure countenance.
4.Yet, weak and blinded though we be,Thou dost our service own; We bring our varying gifts to Thee, And Thou rejectest none.
5.Apart from Thee all gain is loss,All labour vainly done; The solemn shadow of Thy Cross Is better than the sun.6.Our Friend, our Brother, and our Lord, What may Thy service be? Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word, But simply following Thee.

4.Ever confessingThee, I will raise Unto Thee blessing,Glory, and praise; All   my endeavour,World without  end, Thine to be ever,Saviour  and Friend.

ONE THERE IS ABOVE ALL OTHERS

1.ONE there Is above all others,Well deserves the name of friend; His is love beyond a brother's, Costly, free, and knows no end: They who once His kindness prove, Find It everlasting love.
2.Which of all our friends, to save us,Could  or would have shed his blood? But our Jesus died to have us Reconciled In Him to God : This was boundless love Indeed; Jesus is a friend In need.
3.When He lived on earth abasedFriend of sinners was His name; Now above all glories raised, He rejoices in the same; Still He calls them brethren, friends, And to all their wants attends.
4.O for grace our hearts to soften Teach us, Lord, at length to love; We, alas I forget too oftenWhat a friend we have above; But  when  home  our  souls are brought, We shall love Thee as we ought.

5.Weak is the effort of my heart,And cold my warmest thought; But when I see Thee as Thou art I'll praise Thee as I ought.

Of the things that are,thathave been,
And that future years shall see,
Evermore and evermore.

Universe of three in one,
All that sees the moon's soft radiance,
All that breathes beneath the sun.

Chanted of with one accord,

Can save this guilty soul;

and tears Can bear my awful load.

Can give me peace within.

Who sows in tears in Joy shall reap,
With grief who seeks with joy shall find.

Is sure at last Thy face to see,
And all Thy goodness to partake;
The sinner who for Thee doth grieve,
And longs, and labours to believe,
Thou never, never wilt forsake.

Your hearts and voices In His praise :

His wisdom's vast, and knows no bound,
A deep where all our thoughts are drowned.

Who spreads His clouds along the sky;
There He prepares the fruitful rain,
Nor lets the drops descend In vain.

And clothes the smiling fields with corn;
The  beasts with food His hands supply,
And the young ravens when they cry.

5.What is the creature's skill or force?
The sprightly man,or warlike horse?
The piercing wit, the active limb?
All are too mean delights for Him.

6.But saints are lovely In His sight,
He views His children with delight;
He sees their hope, He knows their fear,
And looks, and loves His Image there.

Or It had passed by me.

But far above the skies,
In Christ abundantly forgiven,
I see Thy mercies rise.

The gift unspeakable.

Possession of Thine own;
My longing heart vouchsafe to make
Thine everlasting throne.
Amen.

Whose goodness falleth never;

With food celestial feedeth.

But yet in love He sought me,
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home rejoicing brought me.

With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;

Thy Cross before to guide me.

Thy unction grace bestoweth;
And O what transport of delight
From Thy pure chalice floweth !

Thy praise Within Thy house for ever!

The ransom of His life was paid.

And all shall own Thou dledst for all.

And to the rescue came.

Which did in Adam fall,
Should strive afresh against the foe,
Should strive and should prevail.

4.And that a higher gift than grace
Should flesh and blood refine,

And essence all-divine.

For man should undergo.

With deepest, tenderest fears,
And worship Thee with trembling hope
And penitential tears !

Almighty as Thou art,
For Thou hast stooped to ask of me
The love of my poor heart.

6.No earthly father loves like Thee;
No mother, e'er so mild,
Bears and forbears as Thou hast done
With me, Thy sinful child.

7.Father of Jesus, love's reward,
What rapture will It be
Prostrate before Thy throne to He,
And gaze, and gaze on Thee.

Is still high holden o'er us;
The grace those sinners that subdued,
The strength those weaklings that renewed,
Doth vanquish, doth restore us.

3.The cleaving sins that brought them low
Are still our souls oppressing;
The tears that from their eyes did flow
Fall fast, our shame confessing;
As with Thee, Lord, prevailed their cry,
So our strong prayer ascends on high
And brlngeth down Thy blessing.

4.Their Joy unto their Lord we bring;
Their song to us descendeth;
The Spirit who in them did sing
To us His music lendeth;

Pleasure leads us where we go,Love doth stand
At His hand; Joy doth wait on His command.

High above all praises praising
For the gift of Christ His Son.
Christ doth call One and all:
Ye who follow shall not fall.
