3 Hell's armies tremble at Thy nod
Sovereign of earth, hell, air, and sky!
'Tis God made man, for man to die! 4 O God, of good the unfathomed Sea ! Who would not give his heart to Thee,
Who would not love Thee with his might? 0 Jesus, Lover of mankind! Who would not his whole soul and mind
With all his strength to Thee unite ?
324 “Who shall separate us from the love of
From His love Who reigns for ever;
When to Him we cry.
And His blessed Son befriend us,
The Christian Life—Holiness, 325 “Let this mind be in you which was also
in Christ Jesus.”
And plead to be forgiven,
And form our souls for heaven.
2 Help us, through good report and ill,
Our daily cross to bear;
Our brethren’s griefs to share. 3 Let grace our selfishness expel,
Our earthliness refine,
As free and true as Thine.
And grief's dark day come on,
“Father, Thy will be done."
Forgiving and forgiven,
And follow Thee to heaven. Amen.
326 “The love of Christ constraineth me." 1 My blessed Saviour, is Thy love
So great, so full, so free?
My life, my all, to Thee !
Which in Thyself I see ;
Thou hast endured for me.
With heavenly glory crowned
Beset with troubles round.
4 Thou wouldst like wretched man be made,
In everything but sin,
As we unlike have been.
In every beauteous grace;
As we behold Thy face. Amen.
327 “He saith unto them, Follow Me."
Of our life's wild restless sea,
Saying, “ Christian, follow me.” 2 As of old, Apostles heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Leaving all for His dear sake.
3 Jesus calls us from the worship
Of the vain world's golden store,
Saying, “Christian, love Me more.”
4 In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
“Christian, love Me more than these."
5 Jesus calls us; by Thy mercies,
Saviour, may we hear Thy call,
Serve and love Thee best of all. Amen.
328 “Learn of Me.”
Around Thy steps below;
Thy life and death of woe!
2 For ever on Thy burdened heart
A weight of sorrow hung;
Escaped Thy silent tongue.
3 Thy foes might hate, despise, revile,
Thy friends unfaithful prove;
Thy heart could only love.
4 O give us hearts to love like Thee,
Like Thee, O Lord, to grieve
The wrongs that we receive.
5 One with Thyself, may every eye
In us, Thy brethren, see
From union, Lord, with Thee. Amen.
329 “Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast
the words of eternal life.”; 1 LORD, to whom, except to Thee,'
Shall our wandering spirits go-
And eternal life to know?
2 Israel on the heavenly bread
Fed, and died in days of yore,
Never thirst nor hunger more. 3 Lord, to whom, except to Thee,
Shall we go when ills betide ? Who, except Thyself, can be
Hope and Help and Strength and Guide ?
4 Who can prove what Thou hast proved ?
Who can win what Thou hast won ?
Who can do as Thou hast done?
5 Who can cleanse the soul from sin,
Hear the prayer, and seal the vow ? Who can fill the void within,
Blessed Saviour, who but Thou?
6 Therefore evermore I'll give
Thanks and praise, my God, to Thee ;
Evermore live Thou in me. Amen.
330 “There is none . . . that I desire
in comparison of Thee.”
Jesus unto me?
None on earth have we,
