Give Me Christ, Or Else I Die

“He gave his only begotten Son.”—John 3. 16 Gracious Lord, incline thy ear; My requests vouchsafe to hear; Hear my never-ceasing cry; Give me Christ, or else I die. Wealth and honour I disdain, Earthly comforts, Lord, are vain; These can never satisfy; Give me Christ, or else I die. Lord, deny me what thou wilt, Only ease me of my guilt. Suppliant at thy feet I lie; Give me Christ, or else I die. All unholy and unclean, I am nothing else but sin; On thy mercy I rely; Give ...

Christ Knows and Keeps his Sheep

"...My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one.” —John 10:27-30 My soul, with joy attend, While Jesus silence breaks; No angel’s harp such ...

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heaven to earth come down; Fix in us thy humble dwelling; All thy faithful mercies crown! Jesus, Thou art all compassion, Pure unbounded love Thou art; Visit us with Thy salvation; Enter every trembling heart. Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit, Into every troubled breast! Let us all in Thee inherit; Let us find that second rest. Take away our bent to sinning; Alpha and Omega be; End of faith, as its Beginning, Set our hearts at liberty. Come, Almighty to deliver, Let us all ...

Thou Lovely Source of True Delight

Thou lovely Source of true delight, Whom I unseen adore; Unveil Thy beauties to my sight, That I may love Thee more. Thy glory o’er creation shines; But in Thy sacred Word, I read in fairer, brighter lines, My bleeding, dying Lord. ’Tis here, whene’er my comforts droop, And sins and sorrows rise, Thy love with cheerful beams of hope, My fainting heart supplies. Jesus, my Lord, my Life, my Light, O come with blissful ray; Break radiant through the shades of night, And chase my fears away. Then shall my ...

“From Whence This Fear and Unbelief?”

From whence this fear and unbelief? Hath not the Father put to grief His spotless Son for me? And will the righteous Judge of men Condemn me for that load of sin Which, Lord, was charged to Thee? Complete atonement Thou hast made, And to the utmost Thou hast paid Whate’er Thy people owed; Nor can God’s wrath on me take place When sheltered by Thy righteousness, And covered by Thy blood. If Thou my pardon procured, And freely in my room endured The whole of wrath divine; Payment God ...

Lamb of God, We Fall Before Thee

Lamb of God, we fall before Thee, Humbly trusting in Thy cross. That alone be all our glory; All things else are only dross. Thee we own a perfect Savior, Only source of all that’s good. Every grace and every favor Comes to us through Jesus’ blood. Jesus gives us true repentance By His Spirit sent from Heav’n; Whispers this transporting sentence, “Son, thy sins are all forgiv’n.” Faith He grants us to believe it, Grateful hearts His love to prize; Want we wisdom? He must give it, Hearing ears ...

Out of the Depths I Cry to Thee

"Out of the depths I cry to Thee, O Lord."—Psalm 130:1 Out of the depths I cry to Thee; Lord, hear me, I implore Thee! Bend down Thy gracious ear to me; I lay my sins before Thee. If Thou rememberest each misdeed, If each should have its rightful meed, Who may abide Thy presence? Thou grantest pardon through Thy love; Thy grace alone availeth; Our works could ne’er our guilt remove; Yea, e’en the best life faileth. For none may boast himself of aught, But must confess ...

Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul, My Redeeming Love

Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul Dear refuge of my weary soul, On Thee, when sorrows rise On Thee, when waves of trouble roll, My fainting hope relies To Thee I tell each rising grief, For Thou alone canst heal Thy Word can bring a sweet relief, For every pain I feel But oh! When gloomy doubts prevail, I fear to call Thee mine The springs of comfort seem to fail, And all my hopes decline Yet gracious God, where shall I flee? Thou art my only trust And still ...

Weary of Wandering From My God

“Return unto the Lord thy God.”—Deuteronomy 30:2 Weary of wandering from my God, And now made willing to return I hear and bow me to the rod For thee, not without hope, I mourn: I have an Advocate above A Friend before the throne of love. O Jesus, full of truth and grace More full of grace than I of sin Yet once again I seek Thy face: Open Thine arms and take me in And freely my backslidings heal And love the faithless sinner still. Thou know’st ...
