The Evangelist’s Hymnal (Section 2)

EH 41  P.M. or C.M. & Chorus

Come every soul by sin oppressed,
There’s mercy with the Lord;
And He will surely give you rest
By trusting in His word.

Only trust Him! Only trust Him!
Only trust Him now!
He will save you! He will save you!
He will save you now!

 2 For Jesus passed through death’s dark flood
 Rich blessings to bestow;
 And those He washes in His blood
 Are whiter than the snow.

 3 Yes, Jesus is the Truth, the Way
 That leads you into rest;
 Believe in Him without delay,
 And you are fully blest.

 4 Come, then, and join Christ’s holy band,
 And on to glory go,
 To dwell in that celestial land
 Where joys immortal flow.

EH 42  P.M. or
Come, hear the gospel sound—
“Yet there is room!”
It tells to all around—
“Yet there is room!”
Though guilty, now draw near,
Though vile, you need not fear,
With joy you now may hear
With joy you now may hear—
*“Yet there is room!”

 2 God’s love in Christ we see—*
 Greater it could not be—*
 His only Son He gave,
 He’s righteous now to save
All who on Him believe
All who on Him believe:—*

 3 “All things are ready; come!”*
 Christ everything has done:*
 The work is now complete,
 “Before the mercy-seat,”
A Saviour you will meet
 A Saviour you will meet:*

 4 God’s house is filling fast,*
 Some guest will be the last,*
 Yes! soon salvation’s day
 To you will pass away,
Then grace no more will say
Then grace no more will say—*

EH 43  P.M. 0r

Come, let us all unite to sing,
God is love, God is love.
Let heaven and earth their praises bring;
God is love, God is love.
Let every soul from sin awake,
Each in his heart sweet music make,
And sing with us for Jesus’ sake,
*God is love, God is love.

 2 Oh! tell to earth’s remotest bound,*
 In Christ we have redemption found,*
 His blood has washed our sins away,
 His Spirit turned our night to day;
 And now we can rejoice to say,*

 3 How happy is our portion here!*
 His promises our spirits cheer;*
 He is our sun and shield each day,
 Our help, our hope, our strength, and stay;
 He will be with us all the way.*

 4 In glory we shall sing again,*
 Yes, this shall be our lofty strain,*
 Whilst endless ages roll along,
 In concert with the heavenly throng,
 This shall be still our sweetest song,*

SS 102  C.M.
Come, let us join our cheerful songs,
And thus approach the throne:
Had we ten thousand, thousand tongues,
Our theme of joy’s but one:

 2 Worthy the Lamb that’s gone on high
 To be exalted thus:
 Worthy the Lamb that died, we cry,
 For He was slain for us.

 3 Jesus is worthy to receive
 Honour and power divine:
 And blessings more than we can give
 Be, Lord, for ever Thine.

 4 Soon shall the saints, exalted high,
 A glorious anthem raise;
 And all that dwell beneath the sky
 Speak forth Thine endless praise.

 5 Redeemed creation join in one
 To bless the sacred name
 Of Him that sits upon the throne,
 And to adore the Lamb.

EH 44  P.M. or C.M. & Chorus
“Come, let us reason,” says the Lord:
Your sins of crimson dye
Shall be like snow, or white as wool,
When you on Christ rely.

Only trust Him! Only trust Him!
Only trust Him now!
He will save you! He will save you!
He will save you now!

 2 “Come, heavy-laden, toiling,—all!”
 The loving Saviour cried,—
 Oh He will give the weary rest:
 For such alone He died.

 3 Come, thirsty ones, who often drained
 The cup of pleasure dry,
 For Jesus only life can give,—
 Life that shall never die.

 4 Come as you are, with all your sins;
 Come with your hardened heart;
 Come with your cares, your doubts, your fears,
 All grace He will impart.

 5 Come now, while yet His mercy lasts,
 Perhaps you will not view
 To-morrow’s sun, your soul tonight
 May be required of you!

GH 46

Come let us sing of a wonderful love,
Tender and true;
Out of the heart of the Father above,
Streaming to me and to you:
Wonderful love
Dwells in the heart of the Father above.

 2 Jesus, the Saviour, this gospel to tell,
 Joyfully came;
 Came with the helpless and hopeless to dwell,
 Sharing their sorrow and shame;
 Seeking the lost,
 Saving, redeeming at measureless cost.

 3 Jesus is seeking the wanderers yet;
 Why do they roam?
 Love only waits to forgive and forget;
 Home! weary wanderer, home!
 Wonderful love
 Dwells in the heart of the Father above.

 4 Come to my heart, O Thou wonderful love
 Come and abide,
 Lifting my life ’till it rises above
 Envy and falsehood and pride;
 Seeking to be
 Lowly and humble, a learner of Thee.

EH 45  L. M. D.
Come sing, my soul and praise the Lord,
Who has redeemed you by His blood;
Delivered you from chains that bound,
And brought you to redemption ground.

Redemption ground, the ground of peace!
Redemption ground, oh, wondrous grace!
Here let our praise to God abound,
Who saves us on redemption ground!

 2 Once from my God I wandered far,
 And with His holy will made war;
 But now my songs to God abound;
 I’m standing on redemption ground.

 3 Oh, joyous hour when God to me
 A vision gave of Calvary:
 My bonds were loosed, my soul unbound;
 I sang upon redemption ground.

 4 No works of merit now I plead,
 But Jesus take for all my need;
 No righteousness in me is found,
 Except upon redemption ground.

 5 Come, weary soul, and here find rest;
 Accept redemption, and be blest:
 The Christ who died, by God is crowned
 To pardon on redemption ground.

EH 47

Come, you weary! Jesus calls you
To His wounded side;
“Come to Me,” says He, “and ever
Safe abide.”

 2 “Seeking Jesus?” Jesus seeks you—
 Wants you as you are;
 He is knocking, ever knocking
 At your heart.

 3 If you let Him, He will save you—
 Make you all His own;
 Guide you, keep you, take you, later
 To His throne.

 4 Will you still refuse His offer?
 Still refuse to-day?
 Will you let Him, grieved, rejected,
 Go away?

 5 Do you feel your life is weary?
 Is your soul distressed?
 Take His offer, wait no longer;
 Be at rest.

EH 48

“Come!”—’tis Jesus gently calling,
“You with care and toil oppressed,
With your guilt, howe’er appalling—
Come, and I will give you rest.”
For your sin He “once has suffered,”
On the cross the work was done,
And the word by God now uttered
To each weary soul is—“Come!”

 2 “Come!” the Father’s house stands open
 With its love, and light, and song;
 And returning to that Father,
 All to you may now belong!
 From sin’s distant land of famine,
 Toiling ’neath the mid-day sun,
 To a Father’s house of plenty—
 And a Father’s welcome “Come!”

 3 “Come!” for night is gath’ring quickly
 O’er this world’s fast-fleeting day;
 If you linger till the darkness
 You will surely miss your way.
 And still waiting—sadly waiting,
 Till the day its course has run,
 With His patience unabating,
 Jesus lingers for you— “Come!”

 4 “Come!” for angel hosts are musing
 O’er this sight so strangely sad;
 God “beseeching”—man refusing
 To be made for ever glad!
 From the world and its delusion
 Now our voices rise as one;
 While we tell God’s Invitation,
 Heaven itself re-echoes—“Come!”

SS&S 413? 596  P.M.
Come to the Saviour, hear His loving voice!
Never will you find a friend so true:
Now He is waiting; trust Him and rejoice,
Tenderly He’s calling you!

Oh, what a Saviour standing at the door!
Haste while He lingers: pardon now implore!
Still He is waiting; grieve His love no more:
Tenderly He’s calling you.

 2 Blest words of comfort, gently now they fall,
 Jesus is the Life, the Truth, the Way:
 Come to the Fountain, there is room for all,
 Jesus bids you come to-day.

 3 Softly the Spirit whispers to your heart—
 Do not slight the Saviour’s offered grace,
 Gladly receive Him, let Him not depart:
 Happy they who seek His face!

SS&S 1165  P.M. or,
Come to the Saviour, make no delay;
Here in His word He’s shown us the way;
Here in our midst He’s standing to-day,
Tenderly saying “Come!”

Joyful, joyful, will the meeting be,
When from sin our hearts are pure and free;
And we shall gather, Saviour, with Thee,
In our eternal home.

 2 “Suffer the children!” Oh, hear His voice!
 Let every heart leap forth and rejoice;
 And let us freely make Him our choice:
 Do not delay, but come.

 3 Think once again, He’s with us to-day;
 Heed now His blest command and obey;
 Hear now His accents tenderly say,
 “Will you, my children, come?”

EH 52
Come to the Saviour now!
He ready stands to bless,
He bids you nothing bring,
Only your guilt confess;
No anger fills His heart,
No frown is on His brow,
His look is perfect grace,
He bids you trust Him now!

 2 Come to the Saviour now!
 No barrier stops your way,
 The wrath of God He bore
 In the atonement day;
 For us He sin was made,
 For sinners thus He died,
 God’s claims He fully met,
 His throne He satisfied.

 3 Come to the Saviour now!
 “Tis finished!” once He said,
 His work for sinners done,
 He’s risen from the dead;
 “Peace unto you!” He speaks,
 The peace He made by blood,
 Believing in His name,
 He brings you near to God.

 4 Come to the Saviour now!
 Repose on Him alone,
 For quickly He will come
 To gather up His own!
 If now on Him you’ll rest,
 With His you then shall rise
 To meet Him, and to swell
 Sweet anthems in the skies.

EH 53

“Come unto Me, and I will give you rest;”
What blessed words to weary ones addressed!
They come from Him who knew the depth of woe,
And felt for sinners as none here below.

 2 “Come unto Me!” yes, come in all your sin!
 Through Jesus’ blood the vile may enter in,
 May come to God, who knows their guilt and need,
 Assured the blood was shed for them indeed.

 3 “Come unto Me!” the blessèd Son of God
 Thus told on earth in every step He trod,
 The heart of Him who is in nature love,
 And is beseeching men that love to prove.

 4 “Come unto Me!” oh, blessèd open door!
 For those who but for Christ had hoped no more:
 Oh, love of God! told out in full extent,
 When Jesus to those depths of darkness went.

 5 “Come unto Me;” thus Christ the risen Lord
 Now speaks from glory through the written Word;
 As Victor now He can with triumph shout,
 “Whoever comes to Me I’ll not cast out!”

GT 19 P.M.

“Come unto Me,” the Saviour did say;
He’ll ne’er cast out! He’ll ne’er cast out!
He is the one, the only true way:
Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.
Once on the cross of Calvary’s shame
Jesus has died, and now through His name
Pardon is offered—spread wide His fame!
Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.

 2 Great are your sins, but greater His love;
 He’ll ne’er cast out! He’ll ne’er cast out!
 Sweetly the message sounds from above,
 Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.
 Conqueror He o’er death and the grave,
 Ready to bless and mighty to save;
 Full to the breeze let love’s banner wave:
 Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.

 3 Precious the blood that cleanses from sin:
 He’ll ne’er cast out! He’ll ne’er cast out!
 Oh! let that love your confidence win,
 Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.
 Trust now His word, it will not deceive,
 Trust now the Lord and pardon receive,
 Just here and now upon Him believe:
 Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.

 4 Why then delay? God’s time is just now;
 He’ll ne’er cast out! He’ll ne’er cast out!
 Here at His feet in penitence bow:
 Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.
 Long has He waited at your heart’s door,
 Soon will the day of mercy be o’er,
 Then will God’s grace be offered no more:
 Come, and He’ll ne’er cast out.

Red 131 (or version as GT20 8.7.4.)

Come, dear sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore,
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and power.
Now, O needy, come and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify,
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.

 2 Let not conscience make you linger,
 Nor of fitness fondly dream,
 All the fitness He’s requiring
 Is to feel your need of Him.
 Come, you’re weary, heavy laden,
 Lost and ruined by the fall:
 If you wait until you’re better,
 You will never come at all.

GB 2  S.M.D.

Crowned is the Lord with crowns,
The Lamb upon the throne;
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns
All music but its own:
Awake my soul and sing
Of Him who died for me,
And hail Him as the matchless King
Through all eternity.

 2 Crowned is the Lord of life,
 Who triumphed o’er the grave,
 And rose victorious in the strife
 For those He came to save:
 His glories now we sing
 Who died and rose on high;
 Who died eternal life to bring,
 And lives that death may die.

 3 Crowned is the Lord of love;
 Behold His hands and side,
 Those wounds yet visible above
 In beauty glorified:
 No angel in the sky
 Can fully bear that sight,
 But downward bends his burning eye
 At mysteries so bright.

 4 Crowned is the Lord of peace,
 Whose power a sceptre sways
 From pole to pole, that wars may cease,
 And all be prayer and praise:
 His reign shall know no end,
 And round His piercèd feet
 Fair flowers of Paradise extend
 Their fragrance ever sweet.

 5 Crowned is the Lord of years,
 The Potentate of time,
 Creator of the rolling spheres,
 Ineffably sublime!
 All hail, Redeemer, hail!
 For Thou hast died for me;
 Thy praise shall never, never fail
 Throughout eternity.

EH 57  8.7.D.

Crown the gospel, God and Saviour,
Crown the message of Thy grace;
Let the Word, with holy unction,
Find in every heart a place,—
Gospel-hardened, lost, and wayward,
Often warned, yet careless still,—
Crown the gospel! captives lead them,
Bowing to Thy blessed will.

 2 Crown the gospel, God and Saviour,
 Bless the word of heavenly cheer;
 “Ready!” yes, “all things are ready,”
 Sweetest news for man to hear!
 “Ready” is the large provision,
 “Ready” is the Hand that saves.
 Crown the gospel! spread the tidings,—
 “Sinners now our God receives.”

 3 Crown the gospel, God and Saviour,
 Shed Thy beams o’er nature’s night;
 Raise the prostrate, spirit-wounded,
 Give the groping blind their sight.
 Time is flying, shadows lengthen,
 Saviour, hear our earnest cries.
 Crown the gospel! save and rescue
 From the death that never dies.

GB 396

Dear Saviour, Thou art mine,
How sweet the thought to me!
Let me repeat Thy Name,
And lift my heart to Thee.

Mine! mine! mine! I know Thou art mine;
Saviour, dear Saviour, I know Thou art mine.

 2 Thou art the sinner’s Friend,
 So I Thy friendship claim;
 A sinner saved by grace,
 When Thy sweet message came.

 3 My hardened heart was touched:
 Thy pardoning voice I heard;
 And joy and peace came in
 While listening to Thy Word.

 4 So let me sing Thy praise,
 So let me call Thee mine.
 I cannot doubt Thy word,
                I know that I am Thine.

GT 21 P.M. or S.M. & Chorus

Decide for Christ to-day,
Yourself you cannot save,
Helpless and guilty, lost and blind,
No longer judgment brave.

Christ alone can save—
Break the power of sin;
Christ will fully satisfy
The heart that trusts in Him.

 2 Decide for Christ to-day!
 His blood can wash you white;
 Can cleanse your sins and make you now
 All perfect in God's sight.

 3 Decide for Christ to-day!
 Confess Him as your Lord;
 Proclaim to all the Saviour’s worth,
 And trust His faithful word.

 5 Decide for Christ to-day!
 Procrastinate no more;
 Now mercy pleads, but soon will cease:
 The Judge is at the door.

GT 22
Do you feel the heavy burden
Of a life spent far from God?
Is the future dark before you,
With the terror of the Lord?

Oh! He longs . . . to make you whole,
He will save . . . your sin-sick soul;
Sinner trust . . . oh! trust in Jesus,
At His feet your burden roll.

 2 Fly, O lost one, unto Jesus—
 Now is God’s salvation day—
 Tenderly He will receive you,
 None who come are turned away.

 3 From depressing care and sorrow,
 From the galling yoke of sin;
 Turn, O sinner, unto Jesus,
 He will surely bring you in.

 4 For your sake He bore the sorrow,
 For your sake His life He gave;
 Now He seeks in tender pity,
 Your immortal soul to save.

 5 He will save you from the judgment
 Soon to sweep this world of guilt;
 He will wash your soul and heal you,
 ’Twas for this His blood was spilt.

Red 192

Down at the cross where my Saviour died,
Down where for cleansing from sin I cried,
There to my heart was the blood applied;
Glory to His name!

 2 I am so wondrously saved from sin,
 Jesus so sweetly abides within,
 There at the cross where He took me in;
 Glory to His name!

 3 Oh, precious fountain, that saves from sin!
 I am so glad I have entered in;
 There Jesus saves me and keeps me clean;
 Glory to His name!

 4 Come to this fountain, so rich and sweet,
 Cast your sad soul at the Saviour’s feet;
 Plunge in to-day, and be made complete.
 Glory to His name!

GH 229

Down from the glory came God’s blessèd Son,
Lost ones to save, lost ones to save;
Went into death and the victory won,
Triumphant rose from the grave:
Mighty to save! mighty to save!
Now in the glory He’s able and willing to save.

 2 Sin’s bitter judgment He bore on the tree,
 Dying to save, dying to save;
 So that the sinner might justly go free,
 His precious blood Jesus gave:
 Sinners to save! sinners to save!
 Now He is righteously able the guilty to save.

 3 Sinner, God bids you on Jesus believe,
 Now while you may, now while you may;
 Peace and salvation through Him you’ll receive;
 Do not, Oh do not delay:
 Hurry away! hurry away!
 Infinite love waits to welcome the sinner to-day.

Red 278

Depth of mercy! Can there be
Mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God His wrath forbear?—
Me, a grievous sinner, spare?

 2 I have long withstood His grace,
 Long provoked Him to His face;
 Would not listen to His calls,
 Grieved Him by a thousand falls.

 3 Whence to me this gift of love?
 Ask my Advocate above!
 See the cause in Jesus’ face,
 Now before the throne of grace.

 4 There for me the Saviour stands,
 Shows His wounds, and spreads His hands;
 God is love, I know, I feel;
 Jesus lives and loves me still.

 5 If I rightly read Thy heart,
 Since Thou all compassion art,
 Bow Thine ear, in mercy bow,
 Pardon and accept me now!

GB 193 P.M.

Down from the splendour of His everlasting throne
Came the Lord of glory, for our guilt to atone;
Son of God eternal, He the sinner’s surety stood,
Paid the sinner’s ransom in His precious blood.

Glory, glory, glory unto Jesus!
Anyone, everyone He can fully save.
Glory, glory, glory unto Jesus!
Hallelujah! All who trust Him He will save.

 2 Over death triumphant He is risen from the grave;
 Back to heaven ascended, Jesus now lives to save.
 Nothing else remains now  but salvation to receive,
 When with true repentance you on Him believe.

 3 Come to-day to Jesus, do not longer stay away;
 Come and take salvation, come to Christ, while you may;
 Heavenly voices call you and the Saviour waits to  bless:
 Come to Him believing and His Name confess.

EH 63 Trochaic & Chorus

Everlasting glory unto Jesus be!
Sing aloud the story of His victory!
How He left the splendour of His home on high,
Came, in love so tender, on the cross to die.

Everlasting glory unto Jesus be!
Sing aloud the story of His victory.

 2 Yes! He came from heaven, suffered in our stead;
 Praise to Him be given, “Firstborn from the dead!”
 Jesus, meek and lowly, came the lost to save;
 He, the Victim holy, triumphed o’er the grave.

 3 We in death were lying, lost in hopeless gloom;
 Jesus by His dying vanquished e’en the tomb!
 Burst its iron portal, rolled away the stone,
 Rose in life immortal to the Father’s throne.

 4 Christ is Lord of glory, sing we now to-day;
 Tell abroad the story, own His rightful sway!
 Sing aloud and never cease to spread His fame,
 Triumph, now and ever, in the Saviour’s name.

GB 372
Faith looks to Jesus crucified and risen from the dead.
Faith rests upon His promises, believing all He said.
Faith makes confession of His Name, holds forth the faithful Word.
Faith takes her cross and follows Him, her Saviour and her Lord.
2 Faith sees beyond this passing world, with open vision keen.
Faith all endures as seeing Him, Belov’d, but yet unseen.
Faith suffers with her Lord below to reign with Him above.
Faith ever seeks to walk in light and ever works by love.

3 Faith loves to be obedient, for she hears her Master’s voice.
Faith walks in separation, and a pilgrim is by choice.
Faith hastens to His coming—oh, the rapture and the bliss!
Faith knows she will be like Him when she sees Him as He is.

 4 Oh, grant us, Lord, like precious faith with them that went before,
That we may keep our garments white until the conflict’s o’er;
Nor lose our crown, nor faint until the race is fully run,
When we at last shall see Thy face and hear Thee say, “Well done!”

AH 24,

Far from God, away from Jesus,
Straying in the paths of sin,
Knowing not God’s full salvation,
Jesus calls you ’midst earth’s din.

Come,’tis Jesus calls you,
Come without delay;
He is waiting now to save you,
Come, Oh come to-day.

 2 Why continue in your roaming,
 Jesus bids you come to-day;
 Mercy’s offer still is open,
 Why not come without delay?

 3 How much longer will you tarry?
 How much longer will you roam?
 Listen, Jesus calls you to Him,
 Will you not at once come home?

 4 Can you stay away from Jesus
 With eternity in view?
 Can you still reject His mercy
                When you hear His call so true?

 5 You may almost come to Jesus,
 But “almost” will never save,
 For the soul that “fully” trusts Him
 On the cross His life He gave.

Red  811 C.M. & Chorus

For God so loved this sinful world,
His Son He freely gave,
That whosoever would believe,
Eternal life should have.

’Tis true, Oh yes, ’tis true,
God’s wonderful promise is true;
For I’ve trusted, and tested, and tried it,
And I know God’s promise is true.

 2 I was a wayward wand’ring child,
 A slave to sin and fear,
 Until this blessèd promise fell
 Like music on my ear.

 3 The “Whosoever” of the Lord,
 I trusted was for me;
 I took Him at His gracious word,
 From sin to set me free.

 4 Eternal life begun below
 Now fills my heart and soul;
 I’ll sing His praise for evermore,
 Who has redeemed my soul.

EH 67  P.M.

Free from the law, oh, happy condition!
Jesus has bled, and there is remission!
Cursed by the law, and bruised by the fall,
Christ has redeemed us, once for all.

Once for all, O sinner, receive it;
Once for all, O sinner, believe it;
Trust in the Lord, the burden will fall,
Christ has redeemed us, once for all.

 2 Now are we free—-there’s no condemnation,
                Jesus provides a perfect salvation;
 “Come unto Me”—oh, hear His sweet call,
                Come, for He saves us, once for all.

 3 “Children of God!” oh, glorious calling!
 Surely His grace will keep us from falling,
 Passing from death to life at His call,
                Blessèd salvation, once for all.

 4 Soon He will come, the saints shall be raisèd,
 We, who remain alive, shall be changèd;
                Then all, caught up, at His blessèd call,
                Changed to His likeness, once for all.

EH 71

Fully persuaded—Lord, I believe!
Fully persuaded—Christ to receive:
I will obey Thy call,
Low at Thy feet I fall;
Now I surrender all,
And Christ receive.

 2 Fully persuaded—Lord, hear my cry!
 Fully persuaded—pass me not by;
 Just as I am I come,
 I will no longer roam,
 Oh, make my heart Thy home;
 Save, or I die!

 3 Fully persuaded—no more oppressed,
 Fully persuaded—now I am blest;
 Jesus is now my Guide,
 I will in Christ abide;
 My soul is satisfied
 In Him to rest.

 4 Fully persuaded—Jesus is mine,
 Fully persuaded—Lord, I am Thine!
 Oh, make my love to Thee
 Like Thine own love to me,
 So rich, so full, and free,
 Saviour divine!

EH 72  P.M.

Gather them in! for there yet is room
At the feast that the King has spread;
Oh, gather them in!—let His house be filled
And the hungry and poor be fed.

Out in the highway, out in the byway,
Out in the dark paths of sin,
Go forth, go forth, with a loving heart,
And gather the wand’rers in!

 2 Gather them in! for there yet is room;
 But our hearts—how they throb with pain,
 To think of the many who slight the call
 That may never be heard again.

 3 Gather them in! for there yet is room,
 ’Tis a message from God above;
 Oh, gather them into the fold of grace,
 And the arms of the Saviour’s love.

GT 28

“Get right with God”—for life is sad and dreary
Without the peace He gives and which endures;
Turn now to Him who offers untold blessing
To satisfy the need of souls like yours.

 2 “Get right with God”—your load of guilt is heavy,
 And God alone can take that guilt away;
 He gave His well-belovèd son to suffer
 Upon the cross, your every debt to pay.

 3 “Get right with God”—no longer be rebellious
 Against the love that seeks your soul to win;
 Bow down at last, and as your Lord confess Him,
 Whose blood alone can cleanse away your sin.

 4 “Get right with God”—Eternity’s before you,
 How dark ’twill be if, banished from His face,
 You go outside into the night of sorrow,
 A stranger ever to His saving grace.

GB 161

Give me a sight, O Saviour,
Of Thy wondrous love to me,
Of the love that brought Thee down to earth,
To die on Calvary.

Oh, make me understand it,
Help me to take it in,
What it meant to Thee, The Holy One,
To bear away my sin.

 2 Was it the nails, O Saviour,
 That held Thee to the tree?
 No, ’twas Thine everlasting love,
 Thy love for me, for me.

 4 Oh, wonder of all wonders,
 That through Thy death for me,
 My open sins, my secret sins,
 Can all forgiven be.

 4 Then melt my heart, O Saviour,
 Bend me, yes, break me down,
 Until I own Thee Conqueror,
 And Lord and Sovereign own.

EH 74

Glory, glory everlasting,
Be to Him who bore the cross,
Who redeemed our souls by tasting
Death, the death deserved by us!
Spread His glory, spread His glory,
Who redeemed His people thus.

 2 His is love; ’tis love unbounded,
 Without measure, without end:
 Human thought is here confounded:
 ’Tis too vast to comprehend!
 Praise the Saviour!
 Magnify the sinner’s Friend!

 3 While we tell the wondrous story
 Of the Saviour’s cross and shame,
 Sing we “Everlasting glory
 Be to God and to the Lamb!”
 Give we glory to His name.

SS 421

Glory unto Him who died,
Who for us was crucified;
Who in rich abounding grace
Took the guilty sinner’s place.

 2 Glory unto Him who lives,
 Him who life eternal gives;
 Quickened from the silent grave,
 He is mighty now to save.

 3 Glory unto Him on high,
 By whose blood we are made nigh;
 Seated in Him is our place,
 Trophies of His matchless grace.

 4 Glory unto Him whose voice
 Shall each waiting heart rejoice;
 He will call His saints away
 To His own eternal day.

EH 76

Glory unto Jesus be!
From the curse He set us free;
All our guilt on Him was laid,
He the ransom fully paid.

 2 All His blessèd work is done,
 God’s well-pleasèd in His Son;
 He has raised Him from the dead,
 Set Him over all as Head.

 3 All should sing His work and worth,
 All above, and all on earth;
 As they sing around the throne—
 “Thou art worthy, Thou alone!”

 4 You who love Him, cease to mourn!
 He will certainly return;
 All His saints with Him shall reign;
 “Come, Lord Jesus, come! amen.”

EH 77  P.M.

God be with you till we meet again!—
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again!

Till we meet! . . . Till we meet! . . .
Till we meet at Jesus’ feet; . . .
Till we meet! . . . Till we meet! . . .
God be with you till we meet again!

 2 God be with you till we meet again!—
 ’Neath His wings securely hide you,
 Daily manna still provide you;
 God be with you till we meet again!

 3 God be with you till we meet again!—
 When life’s perils thick confound you,
 Put His loving arms around you;
 God be with you till we meet again!

 4 God be with you till we meet again!—
 Keep love’s banner floating o’er you,
 Smite death’s threat’ning wave before you;
 God be with you till we meet again!

GT 30
God, from His throne on high,
Gave His own Son to die;
His only Son, in wondrous grace;
That sinners blest might be
From Satan’s power set free
And dwell in love before His face.
 2 From heav’n the Saviour came:
 “Jesus” His precious Name,
 The mighty One, of all things Lord;
 Lost, sinful man to save,
 To triumph o’er the grave,
 And bring the wand’rer home to God.
 3 He heals the sin-distressed;
 The weary come for rest;
 And old and young may learn His love;
 To Him they gladly press,
 He every one will bless,
 And one and all His goodness prove.
 4 Then onward to the cross,
 Through toil, and grief, and loss,
 The Man of Sorrows wends His way—
 To sheathe the judgment sword,
 The wrath He there endured,
 And now is crowned in brightest day.
 5 Come to Him, sinner, come,
 Nor longer from Him roam,
 Come as you are, in all your sin;
 Sad, guilty, helpless, lost,
 Tried, troubled, tempest-tossed,
 By Christ, the Door, now enter in.

GT 31  P.M.

God has proved His love to sinners poor and lost,
By the gift of His own Son;
Now salvation’s free—procured at highest cost—
For the sinner, lost, undone.

Trust Him now, Trust Him now,
He sits on high upon the throne,
And before His face all the ransomed race,
Glory in His Name alone.

 2 Yes, the precious blood that flowed from Jesus’ side
 Cleanses every sin away;
 And the soul that trusts that cleansing crimson tide,
 May forgiveness know to-day.

 3 For in heav’n the Saviour sits in glory bright,
 Proof that all the work is done.
 God is satisfied—oh! blessèd, wondrous sight
 And we know the vict’ry’s won.

4 Now redeemed from Satan’s pow’r, and sin and death,
 Through the work of Christ alone,
 I would praise His Name with every fleeting breath,
 And His saving grace make known.


God in mercy sent His Son
To a world by sin undone;
Jesus Christ was crucified—
’Twas for sinners Jesus died.

Oh, the glory of the grace
Shining in the Saviour’s face,
Telling sinners from above,
“God is Light” and “God is Love.”

 2 Sin and death no more shall reign,
 Jesus died, and lives again!
 In the glory’s highest height—
 See Him God’s supreme delight.

 3 All who in His name believe,
 Life, eternal life, receive;
 Lord of all is Jesus now,
 Every knee to Him must bow.

 4 Christ the Lord will come again,
 He who suffered once will reign;
 Every tongue at last shall own,
 “Worthy is the Lamb” alone.

Red 125 P.M.(tune too jolly and hymn archaic)

God is calling the prodigal, come without delay,
Hear, oh hear Him calling, calling now for you,
Though you’ve wandered so far from His presence, come to-day,
Hear His loving voice calling still . . .

Call . . ing now for you, . .
Oh! wea . .ry prodigal, come, . .
Call . . ing now for you, . .
Oh! wea . .ry prodigal, come. . .

 2 Patient, loving and tenderly still the Father pleads,
 Hear, oh hear Him calling, calling now for you,
 Oh! return while the Spirit in mercy intercedes,
 Hear His loving voice calling still . . .

 3 Come, there’s bread in the house of your Father, and to spare,
 Hear, oh hear Him calling, calling now for you,
 Look! the table is spread and the feast is waiting there,
 Hear His loving voice calling still . . .

GB 83 (v2 adjustment does not work)
(I don't like this hymn at all!)

God is here, and that to bless us
With the Spirit’s quick’ning power!
See, the cloud, already bending,
Waits to drop the grateful shower.

Let it come, O Lord, we pray Thee,
Let the shower of blessing fall;
We are waiting, we are waiting—
Oh, revive the hearts of all.

 2 God is here! His promised presence,
 Here and now within this place;
 But we need the soul-refreshing
 Of His free, unbounded grace.

 3 God is here! Oh, then, believing,
 Bring to Him our one desire,
 That His love may now be kindled,
 Till its flame each heart inspire.

 4 Saviour, grant the prayer we offer,
 While in simple faith we bow;
 From the windows of Thy mercy
 Pour us out a blessing now.

SH 53

God is sending out the message
Of His wondrous love and grace,
Sends it from the highest glory,
Radiant in the Saviour’s face.
Oh this precious light is telling
God’s full favour now to man;
From the glory it is streaming—
Ne’er such news since time began!

 2 God has full delight in Jesus,
 Brightest glory He has won;
 He has died, and through His dying
 All God’s pleasure will be done.
 Oh what blessing in believing
 In the One who came to die,
 And the glorious light receiving
 Of God’s Son enthroned on high!

 3 God has given all to Jesus,
 All shall prosper in His hand;
 Every knee shall bow to Jesus,
 All obey God’s blest command.
 Come, then, trust this peerless Saviour,
 Prove the glory of His grace;
 Live for ever in God’s favour
 As it shines in Jesus’ face!

EH 79  C.M.D.

God loved the world of sinners lost
And ruined by the fall;
Salvation full, at highest cost,
He offers free to all.

Oh, ’twas love, ’twas wondrous love!
The love of God to me;
It brought my Saviour from above,
To die on Calvary.

 2 E’en now by faith I claim Him mine,
 The risen Son of God;
 Redemption by His death I find,
 And cleansing through the blood.

 3 Love brings a glorious fulness in,
 And to His saints makes known
 The blessèd rest from inbred sin,
 Through faith in Christ alone.

 4 Believing souls, rejoicing go,
 There shall to you be given
 A glorious foretaste, here below,
 Of endless life in heaven.

 5 Of vict’ry now o’er Satan’s power
 Let all the ransomed sing,
 And triumph to their latest hour,
 Through Christ, our Lord, the King.

SV 99  C.M. & Chorus

God loved the world so tenderly,
His only Son He gave,
That all who on His name believe
Its wondrous pow’r will save.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,
That whosoever believeth in Him
Should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 2 Oh, love that only God can feel,
 And only He can show!
 Its height and depth, its length and breadth
 Nor heav’n nor earth below!

 3 Why perish, then, dear fallen ones?
 Why slight the gracious call?
 Why turn from Him whose words proclaim
 Eternal life to all?

 4 O Saviour, melt these hearts of ours,
 And teach us to believe
 That whosoever comes to Thee
 Shall endless life receive.

SS 437  C.M.

God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.

 2 Deep in unfathomable mines
 Of never-failing skill,
 He treasures up His bright designs,
 And works His sovereign will.

 3 You fearful saints, fresh courage take,
 The clouds you so much dread
 Are big with mercy, and shall break
 In blessings on your head.

 4 His purposes will ripen fast,
 Unfolding every hour;
 The bud may have a bitter taste,
 But sweet will be the flower.

 5 Blind unbelief is sure to err,
 And scan His work in vain;
 God is His own interpreter,
 And He will make it plain.

EH 82 Trochaic.
God so loved the world,
That He gave His Son
Sinners to deliver
From the wrath to come.
Wondrous love that sent Him
From His throne on high,
To redeem from Satan
Lost ones, doomed to die.
Jesus now is risen,
Glorified in heaven;
And believing on Him,
Freely you’re forgiven.

 2 Sinner do you credit
 God’s exceeding grace,
 Grace that waits to pardon
 And to give you peace?
 See the Saviour hanging
 On the accursèd cross,
 All God’s wrath enduring
 To deliver us.

 3 All your sins are cancelled
 By Christ’s precious blood,
 Put away for ever
 From the eyes of God.
 Resting thus in Jesus,
 Trusting in His blood,
 Bright will be your pathway
 Leading home to God.

EH 86 S.M. & Chorus
Grace! ’tis a charming sound,
Harmonious to the ear;
Heaven with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.

Saved by grace alone;
This is all my plea—
Jesus died for all mankind,
And Jesus died for me.

 2 ’Twas grace that wrote my name
 In life’s eternal book;
 ’Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb,
 Who all my sorrows took.

 3 Grace taught my wandering feet
 To tread the heavenly road,
 And new supplies each hour I meet
 While pressing on to God.

 4 Grace taught my soul to pray,
 And made my eyes o’erflow;
 ’Tis grace has kept me to this day,
 And will not let me go.

 5 Lord, let that grace inspire
 My soul with strength divine!
 May all my powers to Thee aspire,
 And all my days be Thine.

EH 87
Great God of wonders! all Thy ways
Are perfect, matchless, and divine;
But the blest triumphs of Thy grace—
Most marvellous—unrivalled shine.
Who is a pard’ning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
Who is a pard’ning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

 2 Crimes of such horror to forgive,
 Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
 This is Thy grand prerogative,
 And none can in that honour share.
 Pardon, O God, is only Thine;
 Mercy and grace are all divine.

 3 In wonder lost, with deep’ning joy
 We hail the pardon of our God;
 Pardon for crimes of deepest dye,
 A pardon traced in Jesus’ blood.
 To pardon thus is Thine alone;
 Mercy and grace are both Thine own.

 4 Soon shall this strange, this wondrous grace,
 This perfect miracle of love,
 Fill the whole earth, while sweeter praise
 Sounds its own note in heaven above.
 Who is a pard’ning God like Thee?
 Or who has grace so rich, so free?

L H 7  P.M.
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father!
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not:
As Thou hast been Thou for ever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand has provided—
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

 2 Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
 Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
 Join with all nature in manifold witness
 To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

 3 Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
 Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
 Strength for to-day and bright hope for tomorrow—
 Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside!
