Hosanna To The Royal Son
Hosanna to the royal son
Of David's ancient line!
His natures two, his person one,
Mysterious and divine.
The root of David, here we find,
And offspring, are the same:
Eternity and time are joined
In our Immanuel's name.
Bles ... read more
Infinite Grief! Amazing Woe!
Infinite grief! amazing woe!
Behold my bleeding Lord:
Hell and the Jews conspired his death,
And used the Roman sword.
Oh the sharp pangs of smarting pain
My dear Redeemer bore,
When knotty whips, and ragged thorns
His sacred body tore ... read more
Naked As From The Earth We Came
Naked as from the earth we came,
And crept to life at first,
We to the earth return again,
And mingle with our dust.
The dear delights we here enjoy
And fondly call our own
Are but short favours borrowed now
To be repaid a ... read more
O God, Our Help In Ages Past

Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home.

Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is thine arm alone,
And our defence is sure. ... read more
Our Days, Alas! Our Mortal Days
Our days, alas! our mortal days
Are short and wretched too;
Evil and few, the patriarch says,
And well the patriarch knew.

And pains and sins run through the round
Of threesco ... read more

Death like a narrow sea divides
This heavenly land f ... read more
Thus Saith The Ruler Of The Skies
Thus saith the Ruler of the Skies,
Awake my dreadful Sword;
Awake my Wrath, and smite the Man
My fellow, saith the Lord.
Vengeance receiv'd the dread command,
And armed down she flies,
Jesus submits to his Father's hand,
And bows his ... read more
We Are A Garden Wall'd Around
We are a Garden wall'd around,
Chosen and made peculiar Ground;
A little Spot inclos'd by Grace
Out of the World's wide Wilderness.
Like Trees of Myrrh and Spice we stand,
Planted by God the Father's Hand;
And all his Springs in Sion ... read more
When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
When I survey the wondrous Cross
Where the young Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast
Save in the death of Christ, my God; ... read more
Where-E'er My Flatt'ring Passions Rove
Where-e'er my flatt'ring Passions rove
I find a lurking snare;
'Tis dangerous to let loose our love
Beneath th'eternal fair.
Souls whom the tie of friendship binds,
And partners of our blood,
Seize a large portion of our minds,
And ... read more
