W. Gawler's "Hymns and Psalms," 1789
And He shall for thy spir - it be
foun-tain ev - er
(See also ST. LEONARD, No. 31) 2 The Lord is glorious and strong,
3 The Lord is wonderful and wise, Our God is very high;
As all the ages tell; O trust in Him, trust now in Him, O learn of Him, learn now of Him, And have security:
Then with thee it is well; He shall be to thee like the sea,
And with His light thou shalt be blest, And thou shalt surely feel
Therein to work and live; His wind that bloweth healthily
And He shall be to thee a rest Thy sicknesses to heal.
When evening hours arrive.
Rev. Thomas T. Lynch, 1850
The following Hymns are also suitable : 1 Every morning mercies new.
520 The Lord my pasture shall prepare. 6 New every morning is the love.
627 The Lord my Shepherd is. 107 Let us with a gladsome mind.
632 The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll not want. 435 Was there ever kindest shepherd.
563 O love that casts out fear. 434 Surrounded by unnumbered foes.
696 Thou hidden Love of God, whose height.
2 Lord of every land and nation,
Thought is poor, and poor expression, Ancient of eternal days,
Who dare sing that awful song?
5 Brightness of the Father's glory,
Shall Thy praise unuttered lie? 3 For the grandeur of Thy nature - Fly, my tongue, such guilty silence,
Grand beyond a seraph's thought; Sing the Lord who came to die: For created works of power,
6 From the highest throne in glory,
To the cross of deepest woe,
All to ransom guilty captives, 4 But Thy rich, Thy free redemption, Flow my praise, for ever flow. Dark through brightness all along, - Alleluia! Amen.
Rev. Robert Robinson, 1774: verse 1, line 2, alt.
2 The highest place that heaven affords 4 To them the cross, with all its shame, Is His, is His by right,
With all its grace, is given; The King of kings, and Lord of lords, Their name an everlasting name, And heaven's eternal Light:
Their joy the joy of heaven. 3 The Joy of all who dwell above, 5 They suffer with their Lord below, The Joy of all below
They reign with Him above; To whom He manifests His love, Their profit and their joy to know And grants His Name to know.
The mystery of His love.
Though shame and death to Him;
Rev. Thomas Kelly, 1820.
