Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. (Psalm 16:1-6)

Words: James Montgom­e­ry (1771-1854). Music:Mendon“, Ger­man tune, ar­ranged by Sam­u­el Dy­er, Sup­ple­ment of Sam­u­el Dy­er’s Third Edi­tion of Sac­red Mu­sic, 1828.

God is our refuge and defense;
In trouble our unfailing aid;
Secure in His omnipotence,
What foe can make our souls afraid?

Yea, though the earth’s foundations rock,
And mountains down the gulf be hurled,
His people smile amid the shock:
They look beyond this transient world.

There is a river pure and bright,
Whose streams make glad the heavenly plains;
Where, in eternity of light,
The city of our God remains.

Built by the Word of His command,
With His unclouded presence blest,
Firm as His throne the bulwarks stand,
There is our home, our hope, our rest.

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. (Psalm 100:1-5)

All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Him serve with fear, His praise forth tell;
Come ye before Him and rejoice.

The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make;
We are His folk, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.

O enter then His gates with praise;
Approach with joy His courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless His name always,
For it is seemly so to do.

For why? the Lord our God is good;
His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.

To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God whom Heaven and earth adore,
From men and from the angel host
Be praise and glory evermore.

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

Without blood is no remission,
Life for life the sentence is;
Pardon comes on this condition,
Tremble we when hearing this:
Make Him known the sacrifice;
Say ye, is his life His own?

He can deal with it as one who
No superior owns, or has;
This belongs to Him alone, who
Fills the throne that ever was,
And forever will remain,
His an everlasting reign.

But will He whose voice is thunder,
And whose bolt the lightning is,
Whom the angels view with wonder,
Majesty and glory his;
He will do what He alone
Able is, else we’re undone.

See thou One, who, more than others,
Seems to know what sorrow is;
Love is His beyond a brother’s;
Grace, and pow’r and truth are his,
Yet He comes, and dwells with men,
Dies, and takes His life again.

Could a man redeem another?
None whose life is not his own.
How could one redeem his brother?
Could he for his sin atone?
Were his life a gift bestowed,
He could give but what he owed.

But the Lord who comes from heaven,
Is the Holy One of God;
Life is His—His own—not given,
Hence the value of His blood,
Hence He could atone for sin,
Hence impart new life within.

Sing we then, it well befits us,
‘Tis a sweet, a blessed theme;
Wonder upon wonder meets us,
Tracing God’s all glorious plan;
Sing of Him who came to save,
Who His life for sinners gave.

And the word of Samuel came to all Israel. Now Israel went out against the Philistines to battle, and pitched beside Ebenezer: and the Philistines pitched in Aphek. . . . And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen. And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain. (I Samuel 4:1, 10-11)

And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the LORD our God for us, that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines. And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the LORD: and Samuel cried unto the LORD for Israel; and the LORD heard him. And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the LORD thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel. And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until they came under Bethcar. Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us. (I Samuel 7:8-12)

(midi) (mp3) Come, Thou Fount of Every BlessingPDF Icon
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it, mount of God’s unchanging love.

Here I raise mine Ebenezer; Hither by Thy help I’ve come;
And I will, by Thy good pleasure, be brought safely to Thy home.
Rescued now from sin and danger, Purchased by the Saviour’s blood;
I would walk on earth a stranger, As becomes a son of God.

O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be.
Let that grace, now like a fetter, bind my yielded heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, LORD Thou hast sealed it, sealed it for Thy courts above.

O that day when freed from sinning, I shall see Thy lovely face;
Clothed then in blood washed linen how I’ll sing Thy wond’rous grace;
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry, take my ransomed soul away;
Send thine angels now to carry me to realms of endless day.

O Sinner, Lift the Eye of Faith

And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. (Luke 23:32-34)

Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:10-12)

(midi) (mp3) O Sinner, Lift the Eye of FaithPDF Icon
O sinner, lift the eye of faith,
To true repentance turning;
Bethink thee of the curse of sin,
Its awful guilt discerning;
Upon the Lord Jesus look,
And thou shalt read, as in a book,
What well is worthy thy learning.

Look on His head, that bleeding head,
With crown of thorns surrounded;
Look on His hands and feet
Which piercing nails have wounded;
See every limb with scourges rent:
On Christ, the Just, the Innocent,
What malice hath abounded!

‘Tis alone those limbs are racked,
Yes, friends too have forsaken Him;
And, more than all, for thankless man
That tender heart is aching;
Oh, fearful was the pain and scorn,
By Jesus, Son of God, borne,
The peace for sinners making.

None ever knew such pain before,
Such infinite affliction,
None ever felt a grief like His
Alone in that dread sacrifice;
For us He bare those bitter throes,
For us those agonizing woes,
In once suffered infliction.

O sinner, mark, and ponder well
Sin’s awful condemnation;
Think what a sacrifice it cost
To purchase Thy salvation;
Had Jesus never bled and died,
Then what could thee and all betide
But everlasting damnation?

Lord, grant us strength to flee from sin,
And Satan’s wiles ensnaring,
Saved from those everlasting flames
For unrepentant ones prepared.
Jesus, we thank Thee, and desire
To rest forever at Thy feet,
Thy heavenly glory sharing.

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

O bless the Lord, my soul!
His grace to thee proclaim!
And all that is within me join
To bless His holy name!

O bless the Lord, my soul!
His mercies bear in mind!
Forget not all His benefits!
The Lord to thee is kind.

He will not always chide;
He will with patience wait;
His wrath is ever slow to rise,
And ready to abate.

He pardons all thy sins;
Prolongs thy feeble breath;
He healeth thine infirmities,
And ransoms thee from death.

He clothes thee with His love;
Upholds thee with His truth;
And like the eagle He renews
The vigor of thy youth.

Then bless His holy name,
Whose grace hath made thee whole,
Whose lovingkindness crowns thy days!
O bless the Lord, my soul!

And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

People of the living God,
I have sought the world around;
Paths of sin and sorrow trod,
Peace and comfort nowhere found:
Now to you my spirit turns—
Turns a fugitive unblest;
Brethren, where your altar burns,
Oh, receive me into rest.

Lonely I no longer roam
Like the cloud, the wind, the wave;
Where you dwell shall be my home,
Where you die shall be my grave;
Mine the God whom you adore;
Your Redeemer shall be mine;
Earth can fill my soul no more—
Every idol I resign.

Tell me not of gain and loss,
Ease, enjoyment, pomp, and pow’r;
Welcome poverty and cross,
Shame reproach, affliction’s hour.
“Follow Me”—I know Thy voice;
Jesus, Lord, Thy steps I see;
Now I take Thy yoke by choice,
Light Thy burden now to me.

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men. For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. (Psalm 90:1-4)

Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, hath sent me. Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. (Isaiah 48:16-17)

Ere the blue heav’ns were stretched abroad,
From everlasting is the Word:
With God He was; the Word is God,
And must divinely be adored.

By His own power were all things made;
By Him supported all remain;
He is the whole creation’s Head,
And angels fly at His command.

Ere sin was born, or Satan fell,
He led the host of morning stars:
Thy generation who can tell,
Or count the numbers of Thy years?

Mortals with joy beheld His face,
The Father’s own Begotten Son;
How full of truth! how full of grace!
God is with us, Immanuel.

The Lamb from the foundation slain,
For all His children, ransom paid;
And now in Heav’n exalted high,
Our Lord, our Savior and our King.

But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Oh, love surpassing human thought!
Oh, vast, unmeasured love!

My tongue, rejoicing, cries aloud,
All glory, Lord, be Thine.

Redeemed, my heart is filled with praise,
My soul true comfort knows,
And daily feels the calm of peace
That like a river flows.

Redeemed, and made by simple faith
An heir of heaven above!
Oh, love surpassing human thought!
Oh, vast, unmeasured love!

Redeemed, I’ll tell it o’er and o’er;
Redeemed my song shall be,
My watchword through the vale of death,
My passport home to Thee.

Redeemed, and made by simple faith
An heir of heaven above!
Oh, love surpassing human thought!

I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living. Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me. (Psalm 142:4-7)

O my blessed, blessed Jesus,
Lone companion of my soul,
In all worries, tribulations,
Give my spirit thy support;
While I’m cast upon life’s ocean,
On the sea’s unstable waves,
Steadfastly, O hold and keep me
In thine all embracing arms.

Let me tread where’er I wander
On this ever moving earth,
All the land beneath me trembles,
Dust and ruins all around;
If I could but keep my foothold
Despite tempest, despite storm,
On the eternal Rock of Ages:
This the ground that never quakes.

Oft times leaning on my dear ones,
Then I lose them one by one;
Lean again on friends, companions,
Very soon they’re also gone:
Lean on pleasure-none is stable,
All my word, it changes so,
Lean on Jesus – here is true strength
Which will hold the world’s whole weight.
