The Death and Excellency of Christ

Posted by in Music

The Death and Excellency of Christ. Isa. 13. 12     1    The things on earth which men esteem,             And of their richness boast,         In value less or greater seem,             Proportioned to their cost.     2    [The diamond, that’s for thousands sold,             Our admiration draws;         For dust men seldom part with gold,             Or barter pearls for straws.]     3    Then what inestimable worth             Must in those crowns appear,         For which the Lord came down to earth,             And bought for us, so dear!…read more

Posted by in Hymns, Music

Lord, with glowing heart I’d praise Thee, For the bliss Thy love bestows, For the pardoning grace that saves me, And the peace that from it flows: Help, O God, my weak endeavor; This dull soul to rapture raise: Thou must light the flame, or never Can my love be warmed to praise. Praise, my soul, the God that sought thee, Wretched wanderer, far astray; Found thee lost, and kindly brought thee From the paths of death away; Praise, with love’s devoutest feeling, Him Who saw thy guilt-born fear, And…read more

Why Should I Sorrow More?

Posted by in Hymns, Music

WHY should I sorrow more? I trust a Savior slain, And safe beneath His sheltering cross Unmoved I shall remain. Let Satan and the world, Ever my heart allure; The promises in Christ are made Unchangeable and sure. The oath infallible Is now my spirit’s trust; I know that He Who spoke the word, Is faithful, true, and just. He’ll bring me on my way Unto my journey’s end; He’ll be my Father and my God, My Saviour and my Friend. So all my doubts and fears Shall wholly flee…read more
