Favourite hymns
« on: July 17, 2015, 11:01:31 AM »
Do you have favourite hymns, why not post them here.

Here is one to start.

CONSIDER Christ,
the source of our salvation,
that He should pay
the penalty for me.
Though He was pure,
a lamb without a blemish,
He took my sins
and nailed them to the tree.

My Lord and God
You are so rich in mercy.
Mere words alone
are not sufficient thanks.
So take my life,
transform, renew and change me
that I might be
a living sacrifice.


2 Consider Christ,
that He could trust His Father
e’en in the garden
of Gethsemane.
Though full of dread
and fearful of the anguish;
He drank the cup
that was reserved for me.

3 Consider Christ,
for death He has defeated.
And He arose,
appeared for all to see.
And now He sits
at God’s right hand in heaven;
where He prepares
a resting place for me.

Bryson Smith, b. 1958

There’s a work for Jesus, ready at your hand,
’Tis a task the Master just for you has planned.
Haste to do His bidding, yield Him service true;
There’s a work for Jesus none but you can do.

Refrain:
Work for Jesus, day by day,
Serve Him ever, falter never; Christ obey.
Yield Him service loyal, true,
There’s a work for Jesus none but you can do.


There’s a work for Jesus, humble though it be,
’Tis the very service He would ask of thee.
Go where fields are whitened, and the lab’rers few;
There’s a work for Jesus none but you can do.

There’s a work for Jesus, precious souls to bring,
Tell them of His mercies, tell them of your King.
Faint not, nor grow weary, He will strength renew;
There’s a work for Jesus none but you can do.

1
“Man of Sorrows,” what a name
For the Son of God who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim!
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
2
Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood;
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
3
Guilty, vile, and helpless, we,
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
Full redemption—can it be?
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
4
Lifted up was He to die,
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in heaven exalted high;
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
5
When He comes, our glorious King,
To His kingdom us to bring,
Then anew this song we’ll sing
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!

FOR ever here my rest shall be,
close to Thy bleeding side;
this all my hope, and all my plea,
for me the Saviour died!

2 My dying Saviour, and my God,
fountain for guilt and sin,
sprinkle me ever with Thy blood,
and cleanse, and keep me clean.

3 Wash me, and make me thus Thine own,
wash me, and mine Thou art,
wash me, but not my feet alone,
my hands, my head, my heart.

4 The atonement of Thy blood apply,
till faith to sight improve,
till hope in full fruition die,
and all my soul be love.

Charles Wesley, 1707-88

GREAT is the gospel of our glorious God,
where mercy met the anger of God’s rod;
a penalty was paid and pardon bought,
and sinners lost at last to Him were brought:

O let the praises of my heart be Thine,
for Christ has died that I may call Him mine,
that I may sing with those who dwell above,
adoring, praising Jesus, King of love.


2 Great is the mystery of godliness,
great is the work of God’s own holiness;
it moves my soul, and causes me to long
for greater joys than to the earth belong:

3 The Spirit vindicated Christ our Lord,
and angels sang with joy and sweet accord;
the nations heard, a dark world flamed with light –
when Jesus rose in glory and in might:

William Vernon Higham, b. 1926
