The Sacred Harp Poetry First Line Index

A broken heart, my God, my King,
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
A country far from mortal sight;
How happy every child of grace
A faith that keeps the narrow way
O for a faith that will not shrink
A faith that shines more bright and clear
O for a faith that will not shrink
A few more days, or years at most,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
A few more rolling years at most,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
A home in Heaven! as the sufferer lies
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
A home in Heaven! when our friends are fled
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
A home in Heaven! when our pleasures fade,
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
A home in Heaven! when the faint heart bleeds
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
A home in Heaven! when the wheel is broke,
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
A land of deepest shade,
And am I born to die?
A land upon whose blissful shore
There is a land mine eye hath seen,
A oes neb o’m holl gyfeillion,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
A stranger in the world below,
How happy every child of grace
A taste of thy tormenting fears
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
A thousand of our years amount
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
A thousand wretched souls are fled
Once more, my soul, the rising day
A while before this damsel died,
Young ladies all attention give,
A ydyw cyfailll ddim ond hynny?
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
Adam’s likeness, Lord, efface,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Adam's Likeness now efface,
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
Adieu, ye proud, ye light and gay,
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
After death its joys will be
’TIS religion that can give
Ah my sweet home Jerusalem
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
All glorious in Jerusalem,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
All hail, eternal Son of God,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
All is vain unless the Spirit
Brethren, we have met to worship,
All o’er those wide extended plains
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
Am I a Soldier of the Cross,
Am I a Soldier of the Cross,
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
Amen! Amen! my Soul replies,
The Lord into his Garden come,
And am I born to die?
And am I born to die?
And as he has prov'd faithful,
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
And has religion left the church
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
And join in praise to Jesu's name,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
And never end the blessed song,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
And never stop till I get there,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
And shall the sons of earth and dust
Will God for ever cast us off?
And shout salvation to my king,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
And still to heighten our distress,
Will God for ever cast us off?
And when I close my eyes in death,
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
And when to Jordan’s floods we are come,
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
And when you meet with troubles,
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
Are there no Foes for me to face?
Am I a Soldier of the Cross,
Arise, my Soul, from deep Distress,
O That I knew the secret Place,
Around my head how angels shine,
Young ladies all attention give,
As on the cross the Saviour hung,
As on the cross the Saviour hung,
Asham’d of Jesus! of that Friend,
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
Asham’d of Jesus! Shall yon Field
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
Asham’d of Jesus! Sooner far
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
Asham’d of Jesus! yes, I may,
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
At this she closed her eyes in death,
Young ladies all attention give,
Attending Angels shout for Joy,
Lo, what a glorious Sight appears
Awake and mourn, ye Heirs of Hell;
Death! ’tis a melancholy Day
Awake from guilty nature's sleep,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Awn tàn ganu tros y moroedd,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
“Amid the glories of that world,
As on the cross the Saviour hung,
Be dead, my Heart, to worldly Charms;
My Jesus, while in mortal flesh
Be faithful to your Saviour God,
While in this vale of sorrow,
Before Jehovah’s burning bar,
Young ladies all attention give,
Before the golden bowl is broke,
Young ladies all attention give,
Bellach minau’n ëon deuaf,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
Beside the gospel pool,
Beside the gospel pool,
Beware of pleasure’s syren song,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Blest Angels! While we silent lie,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
Blest Jesu, thou on Heav’n intent,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
Blinais ar afonydd Babel,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
Blow ye the trumpet blow,
Blow ye the trumpet blow,
Break off your Tears ye Saints! and tell
HE dies; the FRIEND of Sinners dies!
Break off your Tears, ye Saints, and tell
He dies, the Heav’nly Lover dies,
Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
Brethren here are poor backsliders,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Brethren see poor sinners round you
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Brethren, join your cries to help them
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Bright angels whisp'ring me away,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Broad is the Road that leads to Death,
Broad is the Road that leads to Death,
Built upon thyself the Rock,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Bury’d in Sorrow and in Sin,
Salvation! O, the joyful Sound;
But ah! how soon my Joys decay!
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
But Canaan's land is just before,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
But I shall share a glorious part
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
But if my life be spar'd a while
GOD of my life, look gently down,
But if your ears refuse
Come, sound his praise abroad,
But let us gain Mount Pisgah's top,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
But man, weak man, is born to die,
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
But my complaint is bitter now,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
But my complaints remain;
Beside the gospel pool,
But now I am a soldier,
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
But now I have a deeper stroke,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
But now I meet them as the rest,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
But now my heart’s so careless grown,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
But now your thoughts delight to sour,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
But O how oft thy wrath appears,
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
But O, the sad and awful state
Dear people, we have met to-day,
But Oh! I see among the rest,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
But since it is God’s holy will,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
But still I find my heart’s inclin’d,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
But there they live in such delight
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
But tho’ Sleep o’r my frailty reigns,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
But thy compassions, Lord,
My soul, repeat his praise
But tim’rous Mortals start and shrink,
There is a Land of pure Delight,
But to thy house will I resort,
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
But when I come to bid adieu
While in this vale of sorrow,
But when we come to reign above,
The Lord into his Garden come,
But whither can I go?
Beside the gospel pool,
But with our Saviour, holy Lord,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
By faith I see His bleeding side,
I see One hanging on the tree,
By faith I see my gracious God,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
By faith I see the distant shore,
Young ladies all attention give,
By hourly Faith in Thee I live,
My Jesus, while in mortal flesh
By thee my prayers acceptance gain,
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
Calvary, Calvary,
I see One hanging on the tree,
Can a woman’s tender care
Hark, my soul! it is the Lord;
Can reason’s dictates be obey’d?
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
Canst thou for ever fit and hear
Will God for ever cast us off?
Cease, ye Pilgrims, cease to mourn,
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
Chang’d from glory into glory,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Chearful I feast on heav'nly Fruit,
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
Christ by highest Heav'n ador'd,
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
Christ, by highest heav’n ador’d,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Come along, come along,
WHAT ship is this,
Come brethren, you that love the Lord,
The Lord into his Garden come,
Come let us join our cheerful Songs
Come let us join our cheerful Songs
Come Saints, and drop a Tear or two
He dies, the Heav’nly Lover dies,
Come Saints, and drop a Tear or two,
HE dies; the FRIEND of Sinners dies!
Come Sister Anna, take your leave,
Young ladies all attention give,
Come ye weary, heavy laden,
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Come, Almighty to deliver,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Come, Desire of Nations, come,
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
Come, desire of nations, come,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
Come, humble Sinner, in whose Breast
Come, humble Sinner, in whose Breast
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
Come, sound his praise abroad,
Come, sound his praise abroad,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
Come, we that love the LORD,
Come, we that love the LORD,
Come, worship at his throne,
Come, sound his praise abroad,
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Comfort those who weep and mourn,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Content with beholding his face,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
Could we but climb where Moses stood,
There is a Land of pure Delight,
Could we but hear his sov’reign tongue,
Our father dear has gone to rest,
Could we but hear its little tongue
THE little babe is gone to rest,
Create my nature pure within,
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God,
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
Crown Him, ye morning stars of light,
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
Crush'd as a moth beneath thy hand,
GOD of my life, look gently down,
Daniel's wisdom may I know,
Daniel's wisdom may I know,
Dark nights, and clouds, and gloomy fear,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Dear Christian friends, both old and young
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
Dear dying Lamb, thy precious blood
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
Dear father, you’ve been kind to me,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
Dear fellow-youth, in Christian ties,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
Dear God, let all my hours be thine,
Once more, my soul, the rising day
Dear Lord, if indeed I am thine,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
Dear name! the rock on which I build,
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
Dear people, we have met to-day,
Dear people, we have met to-day,
Dear sister, thou art left alone,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
Death shall not destroy my comfort,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Death! ’tis a melancholy Day
Death! ’tis a melancholy Day
Death, like an overflowing stream,
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
Death’s iron gate our must pass through,
Young people, all, attention give,
Did Christ o’er sinners weep?
Did Christ o’er sinners weep?
Did you not dread that hast’ning day,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Direct, controul, suggest this Day,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Diseases are thy servants, Lord,
GOD of my life, look gently down,
Do not I love Thee from my Soul?
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Do you think she will be able
WHAT ship is this,
Dost thou ask me, who I am?
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Dull Sleep of sense me to deprive;
Glory to thee my God, this Night
“Deny thyself, and take thy Cross;”
Broad is the Road that leads to Death,
E’er since, by faith, I saw the stream
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
EARTH, and Sun, and Stars decay,
EARTH, and Sun, and Stars decay,
Encircled in light, and with glory enshrouded,
How sweet to reflect on those joys that await me,
Extol the Lamb of God,
Blow ye the trumpet blow,
“Even down to old age my people shall prove
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
False are the men in high degree,
My spirit looks to God alone;
Far as thy name is known
Far as thy name is known
Far from a world of sin and strife,
THE little babe is gone to rest,
Farewell to sin and sorrow,
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
Farewell vain world, I'm going home
O may I worthy prove to see,
Farewell, careless sinners, for you I do mourn.
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
Farewell, dear parents, I must go,
Farewell, dear parents, I must go,
Farewell, faithful Christians, farewell all around.
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Farewell, faithful soldiers, you’ll soon be discharg’d,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Farewell, my brethren in the Lord,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Farewell, my dear brethren, farewell for a while,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Farewell, my loving brethren,
While in this vale of sorrow,
Farewell, seeking mourners with sad broken heart,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Farewell, ye young converts, who’re listed for war,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
Father, if I may call thee so,
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
Fill’d with delight, my raptur’d soul
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
Fill’d with sinner-like contrition,
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
Finish then thy new creation,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Firm as his Throne his Promise stands,
I’m not asham’d to own my LORD,
Fly me Riches, fly me Cares,
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
Fools never raise their thoughts so high;
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
For God the Lord enthron’d in State
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
For he’s our God, our Shepherd he,
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
For I can never come to thee;
The time is swiftly rolling on
For sovereign pow’r reigns not alone.
My spirit looks to God alone;
Forgive me Lord, for thy dear Son,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
From his pierc’d and wounded body
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
From his side, that fountain precious,
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
From the celestial hills,
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
From the third Heav’n, where GOD relies,
Lo, what a glorious Sight appears
“Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismay’d,
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Gad y wawr fod o fy wyneb,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
Gird on the heav'nly armour,
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
Give me a place at thy Saint’s feet,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
Glad we hail the stable Reign,
EARTH, and Sun, and Stars decay,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Glory to thee in light array’d,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
Glory to thee my God, this Night
Glory to thee who safe hast kept,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
GOD of my life, look gently down,
GOD of my life, look gently down,
God will not always chide;
My soul, repeat his praise
Good Lord, what groans! what shrieks! what cries
Dear people, we have met to-day,
Grace all the Work shall crown
Grace! ‘tis a charming Sound,
Grace first contrived a Way
Grace! ‘tis a charming Sound,
Grace taught my wandering Feet
Grace! ‘tis a charming Sound,
Grace! ‘tis a charming Sound,
Grace! ‘tis a charming Sound,
Grant that those who seek may find
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
Had I heart to hold its pleasure,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Had I the Pinions of a Dove,
My Soul forsakes her vain Delight,
Had I your Wings, to Heaven I’d flie,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Hail Him, ye heirs of David’s line,
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
Hail the heav’nly Prince of Peace!
Hark how all the welkin rings
Hail the Heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
Happy I’m in his embraces,
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Hark how all the welkin rings
HARK! the Herald Angels sing
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
Hark! they whisper, lo! they call me,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
Hark, my soul! it is the Lord;
Hark, my soul! it is the Lord;
Harlots, and publicans, and thieves
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Harp strings touched by angel fingers
When we hear the music ringing
Hast Thou a Lamb in all thy Flock,
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Hath not thy pow’r form’d ev’ry coast,
Will God for ever cast us off?
He breaks the power of cancell'd sin,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
He dies, the Heav’nly Lover dies,
He dies, the Heav’nly Lover dies,
HE dies; the FRIEND of Sinners dies!
HE dies; the FRIEND of Sinners dies!
He form’d the deeps unknown;
Come, sound his praise abroad,
He is a GOD of sov’reign Love,
Death! ’tis a melancholy Day
He knows we are but dust,
My soul, repeat his praise
He knows what Arguments I’d take,
O That I knew the secret Place,
He said, I've come for thee my love,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
He sends his word and melts the snow,
With songs and honours sounding loud
He speaks; and listening to his voice,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
He wept, that we might weep,
Did Christ o’er sinners weep?
He’s gone to his home in glory,
Our father dear has gone to rest,
Hear him ye deaf, his praise ye dumb
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Heav’n is, dear Lord, where e’er Thou art,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Her honor’d mother she address’d,
Young ladies all attention give,
Her pastors love to live at ease,
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
Her pow’rful aid supports the soul,
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
Her private members walk no more
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
Her sails are spread, see how swiftly she moves,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
Her weeping brother she address’d,
Young ladies all attention give,
Here I raise my Eben-ezer,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
Here I’ll sit for ever viewing
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
Here I’ll sit, for ever viewing
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Here it is I find my heaven
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
Here it is I find my heaven,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Here then, from day to day,
Beside the gospel pool,
Here’s Love and Grief beyond Degree,
HE dies; the FRIEND of Sinners dies!
Here’s Love and Grief beyond degree,
He dies, the Heav’nly Lover dies,
High as the heav’ns are rais’d
My soul, repeat his praise
His crimes with inward grief and shame,
As on the cross the Saviour hung,
His hoary frost, his fleecy snow,
With songs and honours sounding loud
His name yields the richest perfume,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
His pow’r subdues our sins,
My soul, repeat his praise
His prayer the dying Jesus hears,
As on the cross the Saviour hung,
His speaking made me laugh and cry,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Hoping thy face in heav'n to see,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Hosanna to the King
See what a living Stone
How are the seats of worship broke!
Will God for ever cast us off?
How decent and how wise!
Far as thy name is known
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
How happy every child of grace
How happy every child of grace
How long, dear Saviour, O how long!
Lo, what a glorious Sight appears
How long, eternal God, how long,
Will God for ever cast us off?
How oft I’ve seen your flowing tears,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
How often have I seen
Beside the gospel pool,
How often have I thought
Beside the gospel pool,
How often you have look'd for me,
The time is swiftly rolling on
How shall I leave my tomb?
And am I born to die?
How sweet the hours have pass’d away,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
How sweet to reflect on those joys that await me,
How sweet to reflect on those joys that await me,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
Howe’er forsaken or despis’d,
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
“His own soft Hand shall wipe the Tears
Lo, what a glorious Sight appears
I arm me with his mortal pain,
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
I came to Jesus and I drank
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I came to Jesus as I was,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I can but perish if I go,
Come, humble Sinner, in whose Breast
I cannot live without thy light,
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
I deliver’d thee when bound,
Hark, my soul! it is the Lord;
I deprecate that death alone,
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
I feel that Heav’n is now begun,
The Lord into his Garden come,
I felt my Lord's atoning blood
Glory to God, and praise, and love
I forward go in duty’s way,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
I found, and own'd his promise true,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
I have a place for you above,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I hold my Saviour in my arms,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
I hope that I shall meet you there,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
I hope to shout eternal rounds,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
I hope you’ll all remember me,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
I hope you’ll meet me far above,
Young ladies all attention give,
I know that you all wanted me,
Farewell, dear parents, I must go,
I leave you all both great and small,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
I little thought he'd been so nigh,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
I long to go, so farewell woe,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
I long to see thy glorious face,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
I look'd to Jesus, and I found
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I love to think of Calvary,
I see One hanging on the tree,
I must from God be driven,
And am I born to die?
I now awake do with you join,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
I once could mourn o’er dying men,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
I own I’m guilty, own I’m vile,
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
I see no pleasure here on earth,
Young ladies all attention give,
I see One hanging on the tree,
I see One hanging on the tree,
I should, were He always so nigh,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
I soon shall hear the awful sound,
O may I worthy prove to see,
I soon shall pass that veil of death,
O may I worthy prove to see,
I tremble, left the wrath divine
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
I trust you’ll pray both night and day,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
I view the monster death and smile,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
I wake, I wake, ye Heavenly Choir,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
I would not wake, nor rise again,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
I would see Jesus when the flow'rs
I would see Jesus when the flow'rs
I’d rise superior to my pain,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
I’d say, “How Flesh and Sense rebel!
O That I knew the secret Place,
I’d tell him how my Sins arise,
O That I knew the secret Place,
I’ll arise and go and meet him,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
I’ll go to JESUS, tho’ my Sin
Come, humble Sinner, in whose Breast
I’ll say farewell to one and all,
Farewell, dear parents, I must go,
I’ll tell to all poor Sinners round,
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
I’ll to the gracious King approach,
Come, humble Sinner, in whose Breast
I’m not asham’d to own my LORD,
I’m not asham’d to own my LORD,
If Heav’n be thus far glorious, Lord,
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
If I arrive there thenbefore you do,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
If I’m call’d home while I am gone,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
If not, he’ll send you down to hell,
Young ladies all attention give,
If Sin entice, I’ll not consent;
’Tis my Desire with God to walk,
If you get there
WHAT ship is this,
If you go first, amen you must,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
I'll bid adieu to all my woes,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
I'll join with Saints that's gone before,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
I'll praise him while he lends me breath,
O may I worthy prove to see,
I'm bound fair Canaan's land to see,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
I'm but a sojourner below,
GOD of my life, look gently down,
I'm glad that I am born to die,
O may I worthy prove to see,
I'm on my way to glory,
While in this vale of sorrow,
In darkest shadows of the night’
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
In every condition, in sickness, in health,
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
In Infancy, sprinkled was I,
’Tis my Desire with God to walk,
In Isra’l stood his antient throne,
O for a shout of sacred joy
In Jesu’s name and Spirit I
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
In rapturous awe on him to gaze
How happy every child of grace
In thee no sickness may be seen
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
In thine own Appointed Way
LORD, we come before Thee now,
In thy Temple, lo we wait,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
In vain to Heav’n she lifts her Eyes;
Death! ’tis a melancholy Day
Influenc’d by the Light Divine,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Into his Presence let us haste,
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
Is folly’s ways, the ways of peace,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Is not the world of nature thine,
Will God for ever cast us off?
Is not thy Name melodious still
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Is there here a trembling jailer,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Is there no kind, no lenient art,
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
It makes me happy while I sing,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
It makes the wounded spirit whole,
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
It shines around with dazzling ray,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Its evils in a moment end,
How happy every child of grace
Its flaming love which has no bounds,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Its skies are not like earthly skies,
There is a land mine eye hath seen,
Jerusalem my happy home
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Jerusalem my happy home
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Jerusalem, my happy home,
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
Jerusalem; Jerusalem
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Jesu, Thou art all compassion,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Jesus can make a dying Bed
Why should we start, and fear to die?
Jesus clad in dazzling splendour,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Jesus is worthy to receive
Come let us join our cheerful Songs
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
Jesus my love to glory’s gone,
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
Jesus our God ascends on high;
O for a shout of sacred joy
Jesus the name that charms our fears,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
Jesus! My Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
JESUS, grant us all a blessing,
JESUS, grant us all a blessing,
JESUS, my GOD! I know his Name,
I’m not asham’d to own my LORD,
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
Jesus, our great High-priest,
Blow ye the trumpet blow,
Jesus, pardon all our follies,
JESUS, grant us all a blessing,
Job's submission let me shew,
Daniel's wisdom may I know,
Jordan’s streams shall ne’er o’erflow me,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Joyful all ye Nations rise,
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
Joyful all ye nations rise,
Hark how all the welkin rings
“Jesus, thou Son and heir of heaven,
As on the cross the Saviour hung,
Jesus sought me, when a Stranger,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
Let all that dwell above the Sky,
Come let us join our cheerful Songs
Let all thy Converse be sincere,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Let Cares like a wild Deluge come,
When I can read my Title clear
Let every tribe and every tongue
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
Let highborn seraphs tune the lyre,
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
Let not conscience make you linger:
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Let not your hard’ned Hearts renew
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
Let persecution rage around,
The time is swiftly rolling on
Let strangers walk around
Far as thy name is known
Let those refuse to sing
Come, we that love the LORD,
Let us love our God supremely,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Let us thee, tho’ lost, regain,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Life is the Hour that God hath giv’n;
Life is the Time to serve the LORD,
Life is the time to seek his face,
Young ladies all attention give,
Life is the Time to serve the LORD,
Life is the Time to serve the LORD,
Lift up thy feet, and march in haste,
Will God for ever cast us off?
Lo! Glad I come, and Thou, dear LAMB,
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
Lo! th' incarnate God, ascended,
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Lo! ye needy; come, and welcome;
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Lo, what a glorious Sight appears

Look unto him, ye nations, own
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Lord I my Vows to thee renew,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Lord, crush the serpent in the dust,
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
Lord, give me such a faith as this,
O for a faith that will not shrink
Lord, I believe thou hast prepar’d
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
Lord, it is my chief complaint,
Hark, my soul! it is the Lord;
Lord, left the tempter me surprize,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
LORD, let not all my Hopes be vain;
Broad is the Road that leads to Death,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
LORD, on Thee our Souls depend,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Love and grief my heart dividing,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Love us, wash us in thy Blood,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
“Lord, remove this grievous blindness,
“Mercy, O thou Son of David!”
Make not increasing gold your trust,
My spirit looks to God alone;
Many for his crying chid him,
“Mercy, O thou Son of David!”
Many years have pass'd since then,
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Mary's love may I possess,
Daniel's wisdom may I know,
May I be there that sight to see,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
May I have the spirit’s unction
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
May I like you in God delight,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
May I still enjoy this feeling,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
May I still enjoy this feeling,
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
May my soul with sacred transport,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
May the grace of Christ our Saviour,
May the grace of Christ our Saviour,
May thy blessing, Lord, go with us
JESUS, grant us all a blessing,
Melt, melt this frozen heart;
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
Methinks her sails,
WHAT ship is this,
Methinks I now begin to see
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Mild he lays his Glory by,
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
Mild he lays his glory by,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Millions of years around my run,
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
Mine be Jacob's wrestling prayer,
Daniel's wisdom may I know,
Mine is an unchanging love,
Hark, my soul! it is the Lord;
Mine will be profit be,
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
Money was not what he wanted,
“Mercy, O thou Son of David!”
Most of all may I pursue,
Daniel's wisdom may I know,
Murtherers, and all ye hellish crew,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Must I be carry’d to the Skies
Am I a Soldier of the Cross,
My Jesus, while in mortal Flesh
My Jesus, while in mortal flesh
My body here must slumbering lie,
Young ladies all attention give,
My brother preachers, boldly speak,
The time is swiftly rolling on
My brother preachers, fare you well,

My crimes are great, but not surpass
Shew pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,

Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
My God will pity my Complaints,

My hand again I give to thee,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
My heart shall triumph in my Lord,
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
My Life with his connected stands,

My lips with shame my sins confess
Shew pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
My little children near my heart,
The time is swiftly rolling on
My loving mother, fare you well,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
My loving wife, don't grieve for me,
The time is swiftly rolling on
My loving wife, my bosom friend,
The time is swiftly rolling on
My rapt’rous soul shall drink and feast
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
My Soul forsakes her vain Delight,
My Soul forsakes her vain Delight,
My soul lyes humbled in the dust,
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
My Soul, how canst thou weary grow,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
My soul, repeat his praise
My soul, repeat his praise
My Soul, when I shake of this dust,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
My spirit looks to God alone;
My spirit looks to God alone;
My watchful enemies combine
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
“Mercy, O thou Son of David!”
“Mercy, O thou Son of David!”
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Neither will he upbraid you,
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
Ni does neb o dan yr wybr,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
Night unto night his name repeats,
Once more, my soul, the rising day
No chilling winds, or pois’nous breath
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
No dampish mist is seen in thee
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
No longer will I ask your Love,
My Soul forsakes her vain Delight,
No prophet speaks to calm our woes,
Will God for ever cast us off?
No sin or pain shall venture nigh,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
No Stranger may proceed therein,
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
No wrecks on sand-bars or dangers attend,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
No: he is full of grace;
Beside the gospel pool,
No: he will put his strength in me,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
No: Nothing may go up thereon
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
No-I must maintain my hold,
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Nor Fools, by carnal Men esteem’d
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
Not a Tittle of thy Word,
EARTH, and Sun, and Stars decay,
Nothing else could quite so charm me,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Now display thy saving pow’r,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Now give yourselves up to his trust,
Young ladies all attention give,
Now here's my heart and here's my hand,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Now let us strive the prize to gain;
THE little babe is gone to rest,
Now on the brink of death we stand,
How happy every child of grace
O Christians we have Heav'n to-day.
Oh! who will come and go with me,
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
O do not be discourag'd,
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
O drive these dark clouds from my sky,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
O for a closer walk with God,
O for a closer walk with God,
O for a faith that will not shrink
O for a faith that will not shrink
O for a shout of sacred joy
O for a shout of sacred joy
O for a thousand tongues to sing
Glory to God, and praise, and love
O foreu-ddydd y briodas,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
O glorious day! O blessed hope;
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
O glory, O glory, O glory to God,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
O happy harbor of the saints
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;

O let us to his Courts repair,
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
O Lord, a father to them be,
The time is swiftly rolling on
O may I always persevere,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
O may I always ready stand,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
O may I find some humble seat,
O may I worthy prove to see,

O may my soul march boldly one,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
O may my Soul on thee repose,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
O may thy love inspire my tongue!
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
O may thy Spirit guide my feet
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
O may we all together meet,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
O may we meet and be complete,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,
O parents, take a solemn view
Dear people, we have met to-day,
O that Day when freed from Sinning,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
O That I knew the sacred place,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
O That I knew the secret Place,
O That I knew the secret Place,
O that this dry and barren Ground
The Lord into his Garden come,
O that, with yonder sacred throng,
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
O the transporting, rapturous scene,
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
O Thou that would’st not have
And am I born to die?
O wash my soul from every sin,
Shew pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
O what a blessed hope is ours!
How happy every child of grace
O what a happy company,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
O what a happy time it will be,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
O what immortal joys I felt,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
O when shall I in endless day,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
O would he more of heaven bestow,
How happy every child of grace
O would the Lord appear
Beside the gospel pool,
O ynfydrwydd! O ffolineb!
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
O! come, my Saviour, come away,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
O! Could we make our Doubts remove,
There is a Land of pure Delight,
O! If my LORD would come and meet,
Why should we start, and fear to die?
O! that my faith was strong to rise
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
O! to Grace how great a Debtor,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
O! what a glorious sight appears
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
O! what madness! O! what folly,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
O, could I stay with friends so kind,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
O, how will parents tremble there,
Dear people, we have met to-day,
Oh! come young soldiers, count the cost,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Oh! do not weep, dear friends, for me,
Farewell, dear parents, I must go,
Oh! have ye ventur’d to the field?
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Oh! how happy are the moments,
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
Oh! methinks I hear him praising,
“Mercy, O thou Son of David!”
Oh! now my immortal soul shall rise,
Young ladies all attention give,
Oh! now upon the peaceful shore,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
Oh! once I had a glorious view
Oh! that all the blind but knew him,
“Mercy, O thou Son of David!”
Oh! that we might lift our Eyes,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Oh! the old ship of Zion, hallelu’, hallelu’,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
Oh! what contentment did you find,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Oh! who are those I now behold,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Oh, ye weary, sad and toss’d ones,
When we hear the music ringing
On a poor worm thy pow’r might tread,
Once more, my soul, the rising day
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
On the left hand, where he doth work,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
On this glad day the glorious Sun
Glory to God, and praise, and love
On thy dear Cross I fix mine Eyes,
My Jesus, while in mortal flesh
Once a sinner near despair
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Once has his awful voice declar’d,
My spirit looks to God alone;
Once I could joy the saints to meet,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
Once more, my soul, the rising day
Once more, my soul, the rising day
Once she was all alive to thee,
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
Open, LORD, the Fountain wide,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Our age to seventy years is set;
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
Our days are as the grass,
My soul, repeat his praise
Our Deliverer, he shall come by and by,
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
Our father dear has gone to rest,
Our father dear has gone to rest,
Our foes would triumph in our blood,
Will God for ever cast us off?
Our home in Heaven! oh, the glorious home,
A home in Heaven! what a joyful thought,
Our lady sings Magnificat
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Our sweet is mixed with bitter gall
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
[Our Life is ever on the Wing,
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
Perhaps he will admit my Plea,
Come, humble Sinner, in whose Breast
Pilgrims fix not here their Home;
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
Praise God from whom all Blessings flow,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
Praise God, from whom all Blessings flow,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Praise God, from whom all Blessings flow,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
Pray meditate, before too late,
Young people, all, attention give,
Prepare me, LORD, for thy right Hand;
Death! ’tis a melancholy Day
Prepare yourself, O mother dear,
Young ladies all attention give,
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
Prostrate I’ll lie before his Throne,
Come, humble Sinner, in whose Breast
Quite through the streets with silver sound
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Reach down, reach down, thine arm of grace,
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
Really blessed is the portion
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
Redeem thy mis-spent time that’s past,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
Rehearse his praise with awe profound,
O for a shout of sacred joy
Remember thy pure word of grace,
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
Remember you are hast’ning on,
Young people, all, attention give,
Return, O holy Dove, return
O for a closer walk with God,
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
Rivers to the Ocean run,
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
Saints and angels join'd in concert,
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Salvation! let the Echo fly
Salvation! O, the joyful Sound;
Salvation! O, the joyful Sound;
Salvation! O, the joyful Sound;
Saviour wilt thou not appear?
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Say “Live for ever, wond’rous King!
HE dies; the FRIEND of Sinners dies!
Say, do you envy those who stray,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Say, Live for ever wondrous King!
He dies, the Heav’nly Lover dies,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
See all your sins on Jesus laid;
Glory to God, and praise, and love
See how the Pit gapes wide for you,
Death! ’tis a melancholy Day
See our Fathers, and our mothers,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
See the happy spirits waiting,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
See the happy spirits waiting,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
See what a living Stone
See what a living Stone
See, they whisper! hark! they call me,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Send some Message form thy Word,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Shall angel-bands convey
And am I born to die?
Shall I regret my parted friends
How happy every child of grace
Shall sin entice you back again,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Shall we ever meet again, at the house,
Shall we ever meet again, at the house,
Shall we see the same eyes shining
When we hear the music ringing
She call’d her father to her bed,
Young ladies all attention give,
She has landed many thousands,
WHAT ship is this,
She landed all who are gone before,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
She’s waiting now for a heavenward gale,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
Shew pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
Shew pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
Shine on me, Lord, new life impart,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
Should Earth against my Soul engage,
When I can read my Title clear
Should sudden veng’ance seize my breath,
Shew pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
Should you arrive there then before I do,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
Shout the chorus thro'
With a Saviour crucified
Show me the way to shun
And am I born to die?
Sin (my worst enemy before)
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
Sin and Satan, LORD, dethrone,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Sinner, O why so thoughtless grown
Sinner, O why so thoughtless grown
Sinners! whose love can ne’er forget
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
Sister, I know that you’ll miss me,
Farewell, dear parents, I must go,
Sisters will you join and help like
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Smiling angels now surround me,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
So my Soul deriv'd from God,
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
So shall I love my God,
And am I born to die?
So shall my walk be close with God,
O for a closer walk with God,
Softly now the light of day
Softly now the light of day
Some few, like good Elijah, stand,
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
Sometimes like mountains to the sky,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Son of Man, in this thy day
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Soon as from earth I go,
And am I born to die?
Soon I’ll gain a full possession,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Soon, for me, the light of day
Softly now the light of day
Stablish, LORD, our Hearts with Grace,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Stay, sinner, on the gospel plains,
Sinner, O why so thoughtless grown
Such worthless objects they pursue
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
Sudden expir'd the legal strife,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
Sun and Moon, and Stars decay,
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
Sure I must fight if I would reign:
Am I a Soldier of the Cross,
Sweet Fields beyond the swelling Flood,
There is a Land of pure Delight,
Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Swiftly roll ye ling’ring hours,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
Swiftly roll, ye lingering hours!
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Take away our power of sinning,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Take away the Veil of Sin,
LORD, we come before Thee now,
Te Deum doth Saint Ambrose sing
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Teach me some melodious Sonnet,
Come, thou Fount of ev’ry Blessing,
Teach me to live, that I may dread,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
Teach us, O Lord, how frail is man;
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
Tell them all about the Saviour,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Ten thousand thousand join in one,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
Th' Almighty Ruler of the Sphere,
My Soul forsakes her vain Delight,
That bears unmov’d the world’s dread frown,
O for a faith that will not shrink
That shall welcome s in heaven
When we hear the music ringing
That will not murmur nor complain
O for a faith that will not shrink
The aged sinner will not turn—
Dear people, we have met to-day,
The British islands are the Lord’s,
O for a shout of sacred joy
The changing wind, the flying cloud,
With songs and honours sounding loud
The Christian name they still retain
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
The dearest Idol I have known,
O for a closer walk with God,
The Depths of Earth are in his Hand,
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
The dying thief rejoic’d to see
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
The faster Sleep the Sense does bind,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
The fearful Soul, that tires and faints,
Broad is the Road that leads to Death,
The glorious Time is rolling on,
The Lord into his Garden come,
The GOD that rules on high,
Come, we that love the LORD,
The God we worship now
Far as thy name is known
The gospel-trumpet hear,
Blow ye the trumpet blow,
The heedless youth, in all their prime,
Dear people, we have met to-day,
The Hill of Zion yields
Come, we that love the LORD,
THE little babe is gone to rest,
THE little babe is gone to rest,
The Living know that they must die;
Life is the Time to serve the LORD,
The Lord has promis’d good to me,
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
The Lord in veng’ance drest
Come, sound his praise abroad,
The Lord into his Garden come,
The Lord into his Garden come,
The Men of Grace have found
Come, we that love the LORD,
The men that love and fear thy name
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
The midsummer-sun shines but dim,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
The more I strove against its Pow’r,
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
The orders of thy house,
Far as thy name is known
The Pains, the Groans, and dying Strife,
Why should we start, and fear to die?
The pity of the Lord
My soul, repeat his praise
The promise guides her ardent flight,
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
The race we all are running now,
How happy every child of grace
The rising God forsakes the Tomb!
HE dies; the FRIEND of Sinners dies!
The rising God forsakes the Tomb,
He dies, the Heav’nly Lover dies,
The rowling Ocean’s vast Abyss
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
The scribe and angry priest
See what a living Stone
The Son of God in tears,
Did Christ o’er sinners weep?
The Sorrows of the Mind
Come, we that love the LORD,
The Sun in its Meridian height,
Lord, now my Sleep does me forsake,
The time is swiftly rolling on
The time is swiftly rolling on
The Way the Holy Prophets went,
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
The whole Creation join in one,
Come let us join our cheerful Songs
The winds may blow and the billows may foam,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
The wint'ry time is past and gone,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
The work, O Lord, is thine,
See what a living Stone
The world and the Devil and Hell all unite,
Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand,
The worst of Sinners here may find
The Lord into his Garden come,
Thee we would be always blessing,
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Their Hatred and their Love is lost,
Life is the Time to serve the LORD,
Then friends shall meet again who have lov’d;
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
Then gentle patience smiles on pain,
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
Then hail, blessed state! Hail, ye songsters of glory!
How sweet to reflect on those joys that await me,
Then he’ll call us home to heaven,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Then I will tune my harp of gold,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
Then in a nobler, sweeter song
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
Then let me suddenly remove,
How happy every child of grace
Then let our Songs abound,
Come, we that love the LORD,
Then shall I see my blessed God,
O may I worthy prove to see,
Then shall I see, and hear, and know
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
Then songs to the Lamb shall re-echo through heaven,
How sweet to reflect on those joys that await me,
Then the eternal spirits guides,
Then the eternal spirits guides,
Then this shall be my theme above,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Then what my Thoughts design to do,
Life is the Time to serve the LORD,
Then will he own my worthless Name
I’m not asham’d to own my LORD,
Then will I teach the world thy ways;
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
Then with all the happy throng we’ll rejoice,
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
Then with my heart I first believ'd,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
There are no Acts of Pardon past
Life is the Time to serve the LORD,
There cinnamon, there sugar grows
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
There David stands with harp in hand
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
There everlasting Spring abides,
There is a Land of pure Delight,
There generous fruits that never fail,
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
There is a land mine eye hath seen,
There is a land mine eye hath seen,
There is a Land of pure Delight,
There is a Land of pure Delight,
There is nectar and ambrosia made
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
There lust and lucre cannot dwell
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
There Magdalene hath left her moan
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
There my exalted Saviour stands,
How happy every child of grace
There on the hill of sweet repose,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
There on the hill of sweet repose,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
There see the glorious hosts on wing,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
There shall I bathe my weary Soul
When I can read my Title clear
There shall we see his Face,
Come, we that love the LORD,
There sickness, pain and sorrow
While in this vale of sorrow,
There sits the Saviour on his throne,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
There sweeps no desolating wind
There is a land mine eye hath seen,
There trees for evermore bear fruit
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
There we in Jesus’ praise shall join,
How happy every child of grace
There we may tell our suff'rings o'er,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
There we shall meet and no more part,
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
There we shall meet with Jesus,
While in this vale of sorrow,
There's nothing round this spacious Earth
My Soul forsakes her vain Delight,
They ne’er will tread my righteous Path;
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
They rise and tune their harps of gold,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
They, forty Years, my Patience griev’d,
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
Think of the tribes so dearly bought
Will God for ever cast us off?
Think on the cov’nant thou hast made,
Will God for ever cast us off?
This awful GOD is ours;
Come, we that love the LORD,
This is the glorious day
See what a living Stone
This is the Way I long have sought,
JESUS my All, to Heav’n is gone;
This lesson she has left for you,
Young ladies all attention give,
This vain world with all its pleasures,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
Tho' storms and hurricanes arise
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Tho’ I have griev’d thy Spirit, Lord,
O thou that hear’st when sinners cry,
Tho’ Ma-rah has bitter streams, we’ll go on;
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
Tho’ our enemies are strong, we’ll go on,
Our bondage here shall end by and by,
Thou art a God, before whose sight
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
Thou art thyself the way:
And am I born to die?
Thou didst divide the raging sea
Will God for ever cast us off?
Thou didst once a wretch behold,
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Thou hast help'd in ev'ry need,
Nay, I cannot let thee go,
Thou know’st I love Thee, Dearest Lord;
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
Thou shalt see my glory soon,
Hark, my soul! it is the Lord;
Thou who, sinless, yet hast known
Softly now the light of day
Thou wond’rous advocate with God,
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
THOU, whose all-pervading eye
Softly now the light of day
Though ’prison’d in earth, yet by anticipation,
How sweet to reflect on those joys that await me,
Though lands and rivers roll between,
While in this vale of sorrow,
Thought to thought with my Soul converse,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
Thro' chilling winds and beating rains,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Thro' heats and colds I've often went,
The time is swiftly rolling on
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
Thro’ ev’ry age, eternal God,
Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
Through grace I am determin'd
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
Thus may we abide in union
May the grace of Christ our Saviour,
Thus we’ll surround the great white throne,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
Thy garden and thy pleasant green
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
Thy gardens and thy gallant walks
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Thy houses are of ivory
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Thy saints are crowned with glory great
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Thy Saints in all this glorious War
Am I a Soldier of the Cross,
Thy turrets and thy pinnacles
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Thy vineyards and thy orchards are
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Thy walls are made of precious stone,
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
Thy walls are made of precious stones
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
Tis this that so constrains me,
While in this vale of sorrow,
To balls and plays you’d let me go,
Young ladies all attention give,
To certain trouble we are born,
So fades the lovely blooming flow’r,
To meet you in that heavenly land,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
To own my Works I dare not trust,
’Tis my Desire with God to walk,
To that Jerusalem above
How happy every child of grace
To the land of ancient story,
When we hear the music ringing
To thee my last distress I bring;
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
To-day attend his voice,
Come, sound his praise abroad,
To-day He pleads His wounded side,
I see One hanging on the tree,
Truly blessed is this station,
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Trust him, ye saints, in all your ways,
My spirit looks to God alone;
Twas for sins His life He gave
With a Saviour crucified
Tyr’d a ni yn dorf gariadus,
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
[The present Moments just appear,
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
[This mortal life decays apace,
GOD of my life, look gently down,
’Till then (nor is the Boasting vain.)
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
’Till then I would thy love proclaim
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
’Tis Evening with my Soul till He,
Jesus! And shall it ever be!
’Tis he supports my mortal frame;
Once more, my soul, the rising day
’Tis my desire above the rest,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’Tis my desire around thy board,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’Tis my desire baptis’d to be,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’Tis my Desire baptiz’d to be,
’Tis my Desire with God to walk,
’Tis my desire to bear the cross,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’Tis my desire to flee from sin,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’Tis my Desire to serve the Lord,
’Tis my Desire with God to walk,
’Tis my desire to watch and pray,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’Tis my Desire with God to walk,
’Tis my Desire with God to walk,
’Tis my desire with saints to meet,
’TIS my desire with God to walk,
’Tis my fixed resolution
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
’TIS religion that can give
’TIS religion that can give
’Tis Religion that can give,
’Tis Religion that can give,
’Tis strung, and tun’d, for endless years,
There is a fountain fill’d with blood
’Tis the cold grave where silence reigns,
Young ladies all attention give,
’Tis there we’ll Reign, and Shout, and Sing,
The Lord into his Garden come,
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
“The GOD of Glory down to Men
Lo, what a glorious Sight appears
“The soul that on Jesus has lean’d for repose,
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Unite my sorrows to thine own,
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
Up to the Fields above the Skies,
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
Up to the hills where Christ is gone,
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
Veil’d in flesh, the Godhead see,
Hark how all the welkin rings
Veil'd in Flesh the Godhead see,
HARK! the Herald Angels sing,
View him grovling in the Garden;
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Wak’d by the trumpet’s sound
And am I born to die?
Wake and lift up thy self my Heart,
Awake my Soul, and with the Sun,
We bless thine holy word
See what a living Stone
We could not wish it back again,
THE little babe is gone to rest,
We feel THE RESURRECTION near,
How happy every child of grace
We that are here in banishment
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
We would not wish him back again,
Our father dear has gone to rest,
Weak is the effort of my heart,
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
We're often like the lonesome dove,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
What is there here to court my stay,
How happy every child of grace
What peaceful hours I then enjoy’d,
O for a closer walk with God,
What shall I do?—shall I lie down,
Oh! once I had a glorious view
What ship is this that will take us all home,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
WHAT ship is this,
WHAT ship is this,
What strange deliv’rance hast thou shown
Will God for ever cast us off?
What will the glad Christians do when above,
What ship is this that will take us all home,
When Christ the Lord shall come again,
Dear people, we have met to-day,
When friends I cherish most are near,
I would see Jesus when the flow'rs
When from his dreadful stores on high
With songs and honours sounding loud
When I can read my Title clear
When I can read my Title clear
When I get home to that bright world,
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
When I my friends in Heav'n shall see,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
When in the night I sleepless lie,
Glory to thee my God, this Night
When rolling years shall cease to move,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
When shall I be deliver'd
O WHEN shall I see Jesus!
When shall I reach that happy place,
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
When shall the Time, dear JESUS, when
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
When that illustrious Day shall rise,
Am I a Soldier of the Cross,
When the holy angels meet us,
When we hear the music ringing
When thro’ the Wilderness they mov’d,
O come, loud Anthems let us sing.
When to that blessed world I rise,
O may I worthy prove to see,
When we hear the music ringing
When we hear the music ringing
When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Jerusalem, my happy home, (Broaddus)
When wrestling in the strength of prayer
Thou Man of griefs, remember me,
Where is the blessedness I knew,
O for a closer walk with God,
Where once thy churches pray’d and sang,
Will God for ever cast us off?
Where sins and sorrows are no more,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
While angelic legions, with harps tuned celestial,
How sweet to reflect on those joys that await me,
While angels shout and praise their King,
O for a shout of sacred joy
While bless'd with a sense of his love,
How tedious and tasteless the hours,
While friends and kindred weep around,
Young ladies all attention give,
While I’m imprison’d here below,
Sweet rivers of redeeming love,
While in my Master’s vineyard,
While in this vale of sorrow,
While in this vale of sorrow,
While in this vale of sorrow,
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
While my Jesus I’m possessing,
White Lilies all around appear,
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
Who can resolve the doubt
And am I born to die?
Why should we start, and fear to die?
Why should we start, and fear to die?
Will God for ever cast us off?
Will God for ever cast us off?
Will land my soul on Canaan's coast,
Oh! who will come and go with me,
Will you pursue the dangerous road?
Young people, all, attention give,
Wilt thou despise eternal fate,
Sinner, O why so thoughtless grown
With a Saviour crucified
With a Saviour crucified
With flames they threaten to destroy
Will God for ever cast us off?
With joy let Judah stand
Far as thy name is known
With me, your chief, you then shall know,
Glory to God, and praise, and love
With such, religion doth remain,
Well may thy servants mourn, my God,
Within thy gates no thing doth come
Jerusalem my happy home (F. B. P.)
Worlds above are bright and glorious,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Worlds of light and crowns of glory,
Great Redeemer, friend of sinners,
Worlds of light and crowns of glory,
Brethren, see my Jesus coming,
Would not mine ardent Spirit vie
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Would not my Heart pour forth its Blood
Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
[Where Pleasure rolls its living Flood,
My Soul forsakes her vain Delight,
“When thro’ fiery trials thy pathways shall lie,
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
“When thro’ the deep waters I call thee to go,
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
“Worthy the Lamb that dy’d,” they cry,
Come let us join our cheerful Songs
Y mae’r byd yn myned heibio
O Iachawdwr pechaduriaid;
Ye mourning souls in sore surprise,
My dearest friends in bonds of love,
Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race,
All hail! The pow’r of Jesu’s Name;
Ye slaves of sin, and hell
Blow ye the trumpet blow,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Ye weary, heavy laden'd souls,
Ye who have sold for nought
Blow ye the trumpet blow,
Yes, and before we rise
Come, we that love the LORD,
Yes, my earth-worn soul rejoices,
When we hear the music ringing
Yes, now we know from whence this throng,
Say, now ye lovely social band,
Yes, Thou hast lov’d this sinful Worm,
My Jesus, while in mortal flesh
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
Yet a season and you know
RISE my Soul, and stretch thy Wings,
Yet may I plead with humble cries,
GOD of my life, look gently down,
Yet may we meet and be complete
Farewell, dear brothers, fare you well,
Yet save a trembling sinner Lord,
Shew pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
Yet the saviour offers pardon,
Brethren, we have met to worship,
Yet, mighty GOD! our fleeting Days
Time! what an empty Vapour 'tis!
You my blest Guardian, whilst I sleep,
Glory to thee my God, this Night

My dearest friends in bonds of love,
Your frolics and pastimes in which you delight,

Your love to me has run most free,
Brethren farewell, I do you tell,

As on the cross the Saviour hung,
