Faith in Jesus
LL hail the pow'r of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall! Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all! Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all! 2 Crown Him, ye martyrs of our God,
Who from His altar call; 11 : Extol the stem of Jesse's rod,
And crown Him Lord of all!: || 3 Hail Him, the Heir of David's line,
Whom David Lord did call: 11: The God incarnate! Man divine !
And crown Him Lord of all!: || 4 Ye, Gentile sinners, ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall; 11 : Go spread your trophies at His feet,
And crown Him Lord of all!: || 5 Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball, 11: To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!: || 6 O that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall; 11: We'll join the everlasting song;
And crown Him Lord of all!: ||
THERE is a name I love to hear;
I love to sing its worth;
The sweetest name on earth.
2 It tells me of a Savior's love,
Who died to set me free;
The sinner's perfect plea.
3 It tells me of a Father's smile
That beams upon His child;
Through desert, waste, and wild.
4 And there with all the blood-bought throng,
From sin and sorrow free, I'll sing the new eternal song, Of Jesus' love to me!
THE Lord my faithful Shepherd is,
And me He safely guideth ;
Who all things good provideth:
Blest am I in His keeping.
2 A tender shepherd leads his sheep,
Where pastures green are growing, And there his flock doth guard and keep,
Beside still water flowing. Thus Christ, my Shepherd, leadeth me, My soul and body feedeth He,
And for their wants provideth. 3 And if I ever go astray,
My wayward soul He turneth,
For this He ever yearneth;
For His name's sake and glory. 4. Why should I ever fear, O Lord,
Whilst Thee I have beside me?
Dost comfort and dost guide me;
Thy rod and staff shall stay me.
A table Thou providest: Though foes be near, I am at rest;
Thou still with me abidest. With oil anointest Thou my head; On me Thy blessing rich is shed,
My cup with bliss o'erfloweth.
Shall follow me, attending
Until they reach their ending :
JESUS, Jesus, only Jesus,
Can my heartfelt longing still ; See, I pledge myself to Jesus,
What He wills, alone to will. For my heart which He hath filled,
Ever cries: Lord, as Thou wilt. 2 One there is for whom I'm living,
Whom I love most tenderly; Jesus, unto whom I'm giving,
What in love He gave to me; Jesus' blood hides all my guilt;
Lead me, Lord, then, as Thou wilt. 3 Seems a thing to me a treasure,
Which displeasing is to Thee,
Give instead what profits me.
Make me thine, Lord, as Thou wilt. 4 Grant that I may e'er endeavor
Thy good pleasure to fulfill;
Lord accomplish Thou Thy will.
5 Lord, my praise shall be unceasing,
For Thou gav'st Thyself to me, And besides so many a blessing
That I now sing joyfully: Be it unto me, my Shield, As Thou wilt, Lord, as Thou wilt. Ludaemilie Elisabeth von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt.
262 MY JESUS, I love Thee, I know Thou art
mine, For Thee all the follies of sin I resign; My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou,
If ever I love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now. 2 I love Thee, because Thou hast first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree; I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy
brow; If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now. 3 I'll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death, And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me
breath; And say, when the death-dew lies cold on my
I'll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
