GOD, IN THE GOSPEL OF HIS SON  (Beddome, 1787)  "The gospel of His Son" Romans 1:9

God, in the Gospel of His Son,
Makes His eternal counsels known;
Where love in all its glory shines,
And truth is drawn in fairest lines.

Here sinners of a humble frame
May taste His grace, and learn His name;
May read, in characters of blood,
The wisdom, power, and grace of God.

The prisoner here may break his chains;
The weary rest from all his pains;
The captive feel his bondage cease;
The mourner find the way of peace.

Here faith reveals to mortal eyes
A brighter world beyond the skies;
Here shines the light which guides our way
From earth to realms of endless day.

O grant us grace, almighty Lord,
To read and mark Thy holy Word;
Its truths with meekness to receive,
And by its holy precepts live.

ANOTHER DAY BEGUN!  John Ellerton, 1871

Another day begun!
Lord, grant us grace that we,
Before the setting of the sun,
Redeem the time for Thee.

...

Another day of hope!
For Thou are with us still,
And Thine almighty strength can cope
With all who seek our ill.

Another day of grace
To help us on our way!
One step towards the resting-place,
The eternal Sabbath-day.

FOR THE DEEP LOVE THAT KEPT US  (Burleigh, 1871)

For the deep love that kept us through the night,
And gave our senses to sleep's gentle sway;
For this new wonder of morning's dawning light,
Flushing the east with prophecies of day,
We thank Thee, O our God.

For the fresh life that through our being flows,
With its full tide to enrich and to bless;
For calm, sweet thoughts, upspringing from repose,
To bear to Thee our song of thankfulness,
We praise Thee, O our God.

Day utters speech to day, and night to night
Tells of Thy glory and power.  So would we
Thy children, duly, with morning's golden light,
Or still at eve, upon bended knee,
Adore Thee, O our God.

Thou knowest our needs, Thy fullness will supply;
Our blindness, Thy hand will still lead us on;
Till we shall see the Dayspring from on high,
Our prayer, one only, "Let Thy will be done,"
We breathe to Thee, O God.

HE'LL WALK WITH ME ALL THE WAY  (Williams, 1913)

I know that my Savior will never forsake,
I know that my faith in Him never will shake;
My journey a pathway of gladness He'll make,
He'll walk with me all the way.

He'll lead me in paths that are pleasant and green,
And show me new glories, so long since unseen;
His hand will I hold all secure and serene,
He'll walk with me all the way.

My eyes will new beauty and glory perceive,
As daily His blessing life's tangles unweave;
I'll hold to His hand and no more let Him leave;
He'll walk with me all the way.

FREEDOM   (Fretz, 1908)

Christ, our glorious leader, calls to us today --
"Gird the armor on and to the field away!"
Slumber then no longer, His command obey,
And forevermore be free.

Refrain
Freedom! freedom! free in Christ, the Lord!
Freedom! freedom! trusting in His word!
By His grace and in His strength we win,
For His truth and love hath conquered sin!
Freedom! freedom! free in Christ the Lord!
Freedom! freedom! trusting in His Word!
We His faithful followers will be,
And we shall forevermore be free.


Moving bravely onward with His truth unfurled,
See the hosts of sin before us backward hurled;
With our captain we may overcome the world,
And forevermore be free.


Tho' the battle rages, strife will soon be past;
Skies will soon be light, which now are overcast;
We the victor's song of joy may sing at last,
And forevermore be free.
