AT THE NAME OF JESUS

Every knee shall bow,

Every tongue confess Him

King of glory now.

’Tis the Father’s pleasure

We should call Him Lord,

Who, from the beginning,

was the mighty Word.

 

Humbled for a season,

To receive a name

From the lips of sinners

Unto whom He came.

Faithfully He bore it

Spotless to the last,

Brought it back victorious,

When from death He passed.

 

Bore it up triumphant

With its human light,

Through all ranks of creatures

To the central height,

To the throne of Godhead,

To the Father’s breast,

Filled it with the glory

Of that perfect rest.

 

In your hearts enthrone Him.

There let Him subdue

All that is not holy,

All that is not true.

Crown Him as your Captain

In temptation’s hour,

Let His will enfold you

In its light and power.

 

Brothers, this Lord Jesus

Shall return again,

With His Father’s glory,

With His angel-train.

For all wreaths of empire

Meet upon His brow,

And our hearts confess Him

King of glory now.

I HEARD THE VOICE OF JESUS SAY:

‘Come unto Me and rest;

Lay down, thou weary one, lay down

Thy head upon My breast.’

I came to Jesus as I was,

Weary and worn and sad;

I found in Him a resting place,

And He has made me glad.

 

I heard the voice of Jesus say:

‘Behold I freely give

The living water, thirsty one,

Stoop down and drink and live.’

I came to Jesus, and I drank

Of that life-giving stream;

My thirst was quenched, my soul revived,

And now I live in Him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say:

‘I am this dark world’s light;

Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,

And all thy day be bright.’

I looked to Jesus, and I found

In Him my Star, my Sun;

And in that light of life I’ll walk,

Till travelling days are done.

     Horatius Bonar.

 

NEARER, MY GOD, TO THEE,

Nearer to Thee:

E’en though it be a cross

That raiseth me,

Still all my song would be,

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee.

 

Though, like the wanderer,

The sun gone down,

Darkness be over me,

My rest a stone,

Yet in my dreams I’d be

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee.

 

There let the way appear,

Steps up to heaven;

All that Thou sendest me,

In mercy given;

Angels to beckon me

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee.

 

Then, with my waking thoughts

Bright with Thy praise,

Out of my stony griefs

Bethel I’ll raise;

So by my woes to be

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee.

 

Or, if on joyful wing

Cleaving the sky,

Sun, moon, and stars forgot,

Upwards I fly,

Still all my song shall be,

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee, nearer to Thee.

     Sarah Flower Adams.

 

I, THE LORD OF SEA AND SKY,

I have heard My people cry;

All who dwell in dark and sin

My hand will save.

I, who made the stars of night,

I will make their darkness bright.

I will speak My word to them.

Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord.

Is it I, Lord?

I have heard You calling in the night.

I will go, Lord,

If You lead me;

I will hold Your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of snow and rain,

I have borne my people’s pain;

I have wept for love of them –

They turn away.

I will break their hearts of stone,

Give them hearts for love alone;

I will speak My word to them.

Whom shall I send?

 

I, the Lord of wind and flame,

I will tend the poor and lame,

I will set a feast for them –

My hand will save.

Finest bread I will provide

Till their hearts are satisfied;

I will give My life to them.

Whom shall I send?

     Daniel L. Schutte.
