God is our strength and refuge            188

 

God is our strength and refuge, 

our present help in trouble; 

and we therefore will not fear, 

though the earth should change! 

Though mountains shake and tremble,

though swirling floods are raging, 

God the Lord of hosts 

is with us evermore!

 

There is a flowing river, 

within God's holy city; 

God is in the midst of her -

she shall not be moved!  

God's help is swiftly given, 

thrones vanish at His presence - 

God the Lord of hosts 

is with us evermore!

 

Come, see the works of our Maker, 

learn of His deeds all-powerful; 

wars will cease across the world 

when He shatters the spear! 

Be still and know your Creator, 

uplift Him in the nations -

God the Lord of hosts 

is with us evermore!

Go, tell it on the mountain            179

 

        Go, tell it on the mountain, 

        over the hills and everywhere; 

        go, tell it on the mountain 

        that Jesus is His name.

 

He possessed no riches, 

no home to lay His head;

He saw the needs of others 

and cared for them instead. 

 

        Go, tell it on the mountain, 

        over the hills and everywhere; 

        go, tell it on the mountain 

        that Jesus is His name.

 

He reached out and touched them, 

the blind, the deaf, the lame; 

He spoke and listened gladly 

to anyone who came.  

 

        Go, tell it on the mountain, 

        over the hills and everywhere; 

        go, tell it on the mountain 

        that Jesus is His name.

 

Some turned away in anger, 

with hatred in the eye; 

they tried Him and condemned Him, 

then led Him out to die. 

 

        Go, tell it on the mountain, 

        over the hills and everywhere; 

        go, tell it on the mountain 

        that Jesus is His name.

     

'Father, now forgive them' —      

those were the words He said; 

in three more days He was alive 

and risen from the dead.

 

        Go, tell it on the mountain, 

        over the hills and everywhere; 

        go, tell it on the mountain 

        that Jesus is His name.

 

He still comes to people,

His life moves through the lands;

He uses us for speaking,

He touches with our hands.

 

        Go, tell it on the mountain, 

        over the hills and everywhere; 

        go, tell it on the mountain 

        that Jesus is His name.

 

O Thou who camest from above             525

 

O Thou who camest from above 

the pure, celestial fire to impart, 

kindle a flame of sacred love 

on the mean altar of my heart.

 

There let it for Thy glory burn, 

with inextinguishable blaze; 

and, trembling, to its source return 

in humble love and fervent praise. 

 

Jesus, confirm my heart's desire 

to work and speak and think for Thee; 

still let me guard the holy fire, 

and still stir up Thy gift in me;

 

Ready for all Thy perfect will, 

my acts of faith and love repeat, 

till death Thine endless mercies seal, 

and make the sacrifice complete.

 

 

God of grace and God of glory      192 (to Bread of Heaven)

 

God of grace and God of glory

on Thy people pour Thy power; 

crown Thine ancient Church's story; 

bring her bud to glorious flower.  

Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,  

for the facing of this hour.

 

Lo! the hosts of evil round us 

scorn Thy Christ, assail His ways!

Fears and doubts 

too long have bound us; 

free our hearts to work and praise. 

Grant us wisdom,  

grant us courage,

 for the living of these days.

 

Heal Thy children's warring madness; 

bend our pride to Thy control;  

shame our wanton, selfish gladness, 

rich in things and poor in soul.  

Grant us wisdom,  grant us courage,   

lest we miss Thy kingdom's goal.

 

Set our feet on lofty places; 

gird our lives that they may be 

armoured with all Christlike graces 

in the fight to set men free. 

Grant us wisdom, 

grant us courage,  

that we fail not man nor Thee.

 

Save us from weak resignation 

to the evils we deplore; 

let the search for Thy salvation 

be our glory evermore. 

Grant us wisdom, grant us courage, 

serving Thee whom we adore.

The Spirit lives to set us free                        664

 

The Spirit lives to set us free, 

walk, walk in the light; 

He binds us all in unity,  

walk, walk in the light.   

        Walk in the light,  

        walk in the light,  

        walk in the light, 

        walk in the light of the Lord. 

 

Jesus promised life to all, 

Walk, walk in the light; 

the dead were wakened by His call,

walk, walk in the light. 

        Walk in the light,  

        walk in the light,  

        walk in the light, 

        walk in the light of the Lord. 

 

He died in pain on Calvary, 

walk, walk in the light; 

to save the lost like you and me, 

walk, walk in the light. 

        Walk in the light,  

        walk in the light,  

        walk in the light, 

        walk in the light of the Lord. 

 

We know His death was not the end, 

walk, walk in the light; 

He gave His Spirit to be our friend, 

walk, walk in the light. 

        Walk in the light,  

        walk in the light,  

        walk in the light, 

        walk in the light of the Lord. 

 

By Jesus' love our wounds are healed, 

walk, walk in the light; 

the Father's kindness is revealed, 

walk, walk in the light. 

        Walk in the light,  

        walk in the light,  

        walk in the light, 

        walk in the light of the Lord. 

 

The Spirit lives in you and me, 

walk, walk in the light; 

His light will shine for all to see, 

walk, walk in the light. 

        Walk in the light,  

        walk in the light,  

        walk in the light, 

        walk in the light of the Lord. 

 

 

 

He who would valiant be         224

 

He who would valiant be 

'gainst all disaster,  

let him in constancy 

follow the Master,

There's no discouragement 

shall make him once relent,  

his first avowed intent

to be a pilgrim.

 

Who so beset him round 

with dismal stories, 

so but themselves confound - 

his strength the more is. 

No foes shall stay his might, 

though he with giants fight: 

he will make good his right 

to be a pilgrim.

 

Since, Lord, Thou dost defend 

us with Thy Spirit, 

we know we at the end  

shall life inherit. 

Then fancies flee away!

I'll fear not what men say, 

I'll labour night and day  

to be a pilgrim.

 

 

Rock of ages, cleft for me            582

 

Rock of ages, cleft for me, 

let me hide myself in Thee; 

let the water and the blood, 

from Thy riven side which flowed, 

be of sin the double cure,  

cleanse me from its guilt and power.

 

 

Not the labour of my hands 

can fulfil Thy law's demands; 

could my zeal no respite know,  

could my tears for, ever flow, 

all for sin could not atone;

Thou must save, and Thou alone.

 

 

Nothing in my hand I bring, 

simply to Thy cross I cling; 

naked, come to Thee for dress, 

helpless, look to Thee for grace; 

foul, I to the fountain fly;  

wash me, Saviour, or I die.

 

While I draw this fleeting breath, 

when mine eyes shall close in death, 

when I soar through tracts unknown,  

see Thee on Thy judgement throne; 

Rock of ages, cleft for me,  

let me hide myself in Thee.

 

 

O God, our help in ages past                498

 

O God, our help in ages past,   

our hope for years to come,  

our shelter from the stormy blast,

and our eternal home.

 

Under the shadow of Your throne  

Your saints have dwelt secure; 

sufficient is Your arm alone,  

and our defence is sure.

 

Before the hills in order stood, 

or earth received her frame, 

from everlasting You are God,  

to endless years the same.

 

A thousand ages in Your sight

are like an evening gone, 

short as the watch that ends 

the night before the rising sun.

 

Time, like an ever-rolling stream, 

bears all its sons away; 

they fly forgotten, as a dream 

dies with the dawning day.

 

O God, our help in ages past, 

our hope for years to come, 

be our defence while life shall last, 

and our eternal home.

Hail to the Lord's anointed        204

 

Hail to the Lord's anointed,

great David's greater Son! 

Hail, in the time appointed, 

His reign on earth begun!     

He comes to break oppression, 

to set the captive free,

to take away transgression, 

and rule in equity.

 

He comes with succour speedy  

to those who suffer wrong; 

to help the poor and needy, 

and bid the weak be strong; 

to give them songs for sighing, 

their darkness turn to light, 

whose souls, condemned and dying, 

were precious in His sight.

 

He shall come down like showers 

upon the fruitful earth; 

Love, joy, and hope, like flowers, 

spring in His path to birth: 

before Him, on the mountains, 

shall peace the herald go,   

and righteousness in fountains  

from hill to valley flow. 

 

Kings shall fall down before Him, 

and gold and incense bring;  

all nations shall adore Him, 

His praise all people sing;  

to Him shall prayer unceasing 

and daily vows ascend; 

His kingdom still increasing, 

a kingdom without end.

 

O'er every foe victorious,  

He on His throne shall rest; 

from age to age more glorious, 

all-blessing and all-blest. 

The tide of time shall never

His covenant remove; 

His name shall stand for ever, 

 His changeless name of Love.

 

 

Tell me the old, old story            628

 

Tell me the old, old story  

of unseen things above, 

of Jesus and His glory, 

of Jesus and His love.

Tell me the story simply,   

as to a little child, 

for I am weak and weary,   

and helpless and defiled. 

 

        Tell me the old, old story, 

        tell me the old, old story,  

        tell me the old, old story  

        of Jesus and His love. 

 

Tell me the story slowly, 

that I may take it in - 

that wonderful redemption, 

God's remedy for sin.   

Tell me the story often, 

for I forget so soon: 

the early dew of morning 

has passed away at noon. 

 

        Tell me the old, old story, 

        tell me the old, old story,  

        tell me the old, old story  

        of Jesus and His love. 

 

Tell me the story softly, 

with earnest tones and grave; 

Remember! I'm the sinner  

whom Jesus came to save. 

Tell me the story always, 

if you would really be, 

in any time of trouble,  

a comforter to me.

 

        Tell me the old, old story, 

        tell me the old, old story,  

        tell me the old, old story  

        of Jesus and His love. 

 

Tell me the same old story, 

when you have cause to fear 

that this world's empty glory 

is costing me too dear. 

Yes, and when that world's glory 

is dawning on my soul,  

tell me the old, old story;

'Christ Jesus makes you whole.' 

 

        Tell me the old, old story, 

        tell me the old, old story,  

        tell me the old, old story  

        of Jesus and His love.
