The Evangelist’s Hymnal (Section 7)

EH 295

Oh, what a glorious truth is this—
Jesus died, Jesus died.
Has opened up the path to bliss;
Jesus died, Jesus died.
God loved the world, His Son He gave
That all who do in Him believe
Should a full, gracious pardon have.
*Jesus died, Jesus died.

2 To save my soul from death and hell,*
Such love amazing who can tell?*
Yes, He for wretched men was slain,
That they through Him might life obtain,
And everlasting glory gain.*

3 Oh, tell it unto all around,*
’Tis such a precious, blessèd sound;*
Entreat poor sinners to rely
On that which brings the guilty near,—
E’en to the blood of Christ so dear.*

4 Soon heaven shall raise the happy song,*
Which endless ages shall prolong;*
By virtue of that precious blood
Believers are brought near to God:
Oh, spread the glorious news abroad,*

Sep. sheet chorus

Oh, what a Saviour! How great is His love!
Gladly His worthiness we would proclaim.
Jesus came down from the glory above,
Praise to His wondrous name!

Loudly we proclaim
Praise to His wondrous name.
Jesus our Saviour is always the same.
Praise to His wondrous name.

2 Once we were lying in sin and despair,
But in His mercy to save us He came
That we His home and His glory might share—
Praise to His wondrous name!

3 Soon we shall see Him in heaven above,
And through the ages His glory acclaim.
Ever we’ll sing of His mercy and love,
Praise to His wondrous name!

EH 296 Dactylic + Chorus or P.M.

Oh, what a Saviour is Jesus the Lord!
Well might His name by His saints be adored;
He has redeemed them from hell by His blood,
Saved them for ever and brought them to God.
Jesus the Saviour is mighty to save, mighty to save, mighty to save,
Jesus the Saviour is mighty to save,
Jesus hath triumphed o’er death and the grave.

2 Now in the glory, He waits to impart
Peace to the conscience and joy to the heart;
Waits to be gracious, to pardon and heal
All who their sin and their wretchedness feel.

3 Thousands have fled to His spear-piercèd side,
Welcome they all have been, none are denied;
Weary and laden, they all have been blest,
Joyfully now in the Saviour they rest.

4 Come, then, poor sinner, no longer delay,
Come to the Saviour, come now while you may;
So shall your peace be eternally sure,
So shall your happiness ever endure.

EH 298  10.10.10. + Chorus

Oh, what a Saviour—that He died for me!
From condemnation He has made me free;
“He that believeth on the Son,” says He,
“Has everlasting life.”

“Verily, verily, I say unto you;”
“Verily, verily,”—message ever new!
“He that believeth on the Son”—’tis true!—
“Has everlasting life.”

2 All my iniquities on Him were laid,
All my indebtedness by Him was paid;
All who believe on Him, the Lord has said,
“Have everlasting life.”

3 Though poor and needy, I can trust my Lord;
Though weak and sinful, I believe His word.
Oh, glad message! every child of God
“Has everlasting life.”

4 Though all unworthy, yet I will not doubt;
For him that cometh He will not cast out.
“He that believeth,” oh, the good news shout,
“Has everlasting life.”

EH 299 Iambic or P.M.

Oh, what has Jesus done for me?
He pitied me—my Saviour!
My sins were great; His love was free;
He died for me—my Saviour!
Exalted by His Father’s side,
He pleads for me—my Saviour!
A heavenly mansion He’ll provide
For all who love my Saviour!
Jesus, Lord Jesus,
Thy name is sweet—my Saviour!
When shall I see Thee face to face,
My wondrous, blessèd Saviour?

2 The day will come, will surely come,
So Thou hast said—my Saviour!
When in Thy glory Thou’lt return,
My holy, gracious Saviour!
So then I’ll see Thy very face,
And be with Thee for ever;
And, through the riches of Thy grace,
I shall be like my Saviour.
Jesus, Lord Jesus,
Thy name is sweet—my Saviour!
Then quickly come, and take us home,
Thou wondrous, glorious Saviour!

GB 209  P.M.

Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes low and sweet,
And tenderly He bids you
Your burdens lay at His feet;
O soul, so sad and so weary,
That sweet voice makes its plea
Then what will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

What shall the answer be?
What shall the answer be?
What will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

2 Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes loud and clear;
The solemn words are sounding
In every list’ning ear;
Eternal life’s in the question,
And joy through eternity;
Then what will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

3 Oh, think of the King of glory,
From heaven to earth come down;
His life so pure and holy,
His death, His cross, and His crown;
Of His divine compassion,
His sacrifice, His plea.
Then what will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

GB 211 + Chorus
O word, of words the sweetest,
O word, in which there lies
All promise, all fulfilment,
And end of mystery!
Lamenting or rejoicing,
With doubt or terror nigh,
I hear the “Come!” of Jesus,
And to His cross I fly.

“Come! oh, come to Me! . . .
Come! oh, come to Me! . . .
Weary, heavy-laden,
Come! oh, come to Me!” . . .
“Come! oh, come to Me! . . .
Come! oh, come to Me! . . .
Weary, heavy-laden,
Come! oh, come to Me!” . . .

2 O soul! why should you wander
From such a loving Friend?
Cling closer, closer to Him,
Stay with Him to the end:
Alas! I am so helpless,
So very full of sin,
For I am ever wand’ring,
And coming back again.

3 Oh, each time draw me nearer,
That soon the “Come” may be
Naught but a gentle whisper
To one so close to Thee;
Then, over sea and mountain,
Far from or near my home,
I’ll take Thy hand and follow
At that sweet whisper, “Come!”

GT 128 + Chorus or P.M.

Oh! why not say “Yes” to the Saviour tonight?
He’s tenderly pleading with you
To come to Him now with your sin-burdened heart,
For pardon so full—yes, its true.

Why not say “Yes” tonight?
Why not? Why not?
While He so gently, so tenderly pleads
Oh! accept Him tonight

2 For with you the Spirit will not always plead,
Oh, do not reject Him tonight!
Tomorrow may bring you the darkness of death,
Unbroken by heavenly light.

3 Take Christ as your Saviour, then all will be well,
The morrow let bring what it may;
His love shall protect you, His Spirit shall guide
And safely keep you in His way.

SS 1  C.M.

Of all the gifts Thy love bestows,
Thou Giver of all good,
Not heaven itself a richer knows
Than the Redeemer’s blood.

2 Faith too that trusts the blood through grace
From that same love we gain;
Else, sweetly as it suits our case,
The gift had been in vain.

3 We praise Thee, and would praise Thee more;
To Thee our all we owe;
The precious Saviour, and the power
That makes Him precious too.

GH 268 L.M.D.

On Calvary’s brow my Saviour died,
’Twas there my Lord was crucified;
’Twas on the cross He bled for me,
And purchased there my pardon free.
O Calvary! dark Calvary!
Where Jesus shed His blood for me,
O Calvary! blest Calvary!
’Twas there my Saviour died for me.

2 O Jesus, Lord, how can it be,
That Thou shouldst give Thy life for me,
To bear the cross and agony
In that dread hour on Calvary!
’Mid rending rocks and darkening skies,
My Saviour bowed His head and died;
The opening veil reveals the way
To heaven’s joys and endless day.

EH 301  L.M.

On Christ salvation rests secure;
The Rock of Ages must endure;
Nor can that faith be overthrown
Which rests upon the “Living Stone.”

2 No other hope shall intervene;
To Him we look, on Him we lean.
Other foundations we disown,
And build on Christ, the “Living Stone.”

3 In Him it is ordained to raise
A temple to the Father’s praise,
Composed of all the saints, who own
No Saviour but the “Living Stone.”

4 View the vast building, see it rise;
The work how great, the plan how wise!
O wondrous fabric, power unknown!
That rears it on the “Living Stone.”

5 But most adore His precious name;
His glory and His grace proclaim;
For us, condemned, despised, undone;
He gave Himself, the “Living Stone.”

EH 303

On His Father’s throne is seated
Christ the Lord, the living One!
All His toil on earth completed,
All His work for sinners done;
In the glory, in the glory,
See Him—God’s eternal Son!

2 Every knee shall bow before Him,
Every tongue confess His name:
Ransomed myriads shall adore Him
Who endured the sinner’s shame!
From the glory
God doth now His worth proclaim!

3 Man the cross to Him awarded,
Man the Saviour crucified!
This world’s judgment stands recorded,
God’s own justice satisfied!
By the glory
Christ was claimed, on earth who died!

4 Son of Man! His incarnation
Opened first the tale of grace;
Son of Man! in new creation
Leader of a chosen race!
Well may glory
Crown Him in the ordered place!

SS&S 159 or P.M.

On that bright and golden morning when the Son of Man shall come,
And the radiance of His glory we shall see;
When from every clime and nation He shall call His people home—
What a gath’ring of the ransomed that will be!

Suggest omit chorus LH
What a gath’ . . .ring! what a gath’ . . .ring!
What a gath’ring of the ransomed in the summer land of love!
What a gath’ . . .ring! what a gath’ring
Off the ransomed in that happy home above!

2 When the blest who sleep in Jesus at His bidding shall arise
From the silence of the grave, and from the sea;
And with bodies all celestial they shall meet Him in the skies—
What a gath’ring and rejoicing there will be!

3 When our eyes behold the City, with its “many mansions” bright,
And its river, calm and restful, flowing free—
When the friends that death has parted shall in bliss again unite—
What a gath’ring and a greeting there will be!

4 Oh, the Lord is surely coming, and the time is drawing nigh,
When the blessèd day of promise we shall see;
Then the changing “in a moment,” “in the twinkling of an eye,”
And for ever in His presence we shall be.

EH 305 + Chorus

Once again the Gospel message
From the Saviour you have heard;
Will you heed the invitation?
Will you turn and seek the Lord?

Come believing! . . come believing! . .
Come to Jesus! look, and live! . .
Come believing! . . come believing! . .
Come to Jesus! look, and live!

2 Many summers you have wasted,
Ripened harvests you have seen,
Winter snows by spring have melted,—
Yet you linger in your sin.

3 Jesus for your choice is waiting;
Linger not; at once decide!
While the Spirit now is striving,
Yield, and seek the Saviour’s side.

4 Cease of fitness to be thinking;
Do not longer try to feel;
It is trusting, and not feeling,
That will bring the Spirit’s seal.

5 Let your will to God be given,
Trust in Christ’s atoning blood;
Look to Jesus now in heaven,
Rest on His unchanging word.

SH 176

Once from glory’s height descending,
To this earth the Saviour came;
Here in grace His pathway wending,
Here He magnified God’s name.
Lowly Saviour! Lowly Saviour!
We would still His grace proclaim.

2 On to Calvary’s shame and suffering,
He to death the path did tread;
There for sin the perfect Offering,
On the cross His blood was shed.
Wondrous Saviour!
Dying in the sinner’s stead.

3 Out from death, His work completed,
Burst the portals of the grave;
High at God’s right hand now seated,
He can e’en the vilest save.
Glorious Saviour!
’Twas in love His all He gave.

4 Still He waits in grace transcending,
He for you has tarried long;
Bids you share in joys unending,
Join e’en now in heav’n’s blest song.
Worthy Saviour!
Theme of all the ransomed throng.

GT 130  8.7.

Once we stood in condemnation,
Waiting thus the sinner’s doom,
Christ in death has wrought salvation,
God has raised Him from the tomb.

2 Now we see in Christ’s acceptance
But the measure of our own;
Him who lay beneath our sentence,
Seated high upon the throne.

3 Quickened, raised, and in Him seated,
We a full deliverance know;
Every foe has been defeated,
Every enemy laid low.

4 Now we have a life in union
With the risen life above:
Now we drink in sweet communion
Some rich foretaste of His love.

5 Soon, O Lord! in brightest glory,
All its vastness we’ll explore;
Soon we’ll cast our crowns before Thee,
While we worship and adore.

GB 129 + Chorus or P.M.

One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
One day when sin was as black as could be,
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin—
Dwelt amongst men, my example is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified, freely for ever:
One day He’s coming—oh, glorious day!

2 One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain,
One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
Suffering anguish, despised, and rejected;
Bearing our sins, My Redeemer is He!

3 One day they left Him alone in the garden,
One day He rested, from suffering free;
Angels came down o’er His tomb to keep vigil;
Hope of the hopeless, my Saviour is He!

4 One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
One day the stone rolled away from the door;
Then He arose, over death He had conquered;
Now is ascended, my Lord evermore!

5 One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
Then in the clouds with His glory will shine;
Wonderful day, His belovèd ones taking;
Glorious Saviour, this Jesus is mine!

SS&S 445 or P.M. (thee & thou?)

One there is who loves you, waiting still for you;
Can you still reject Him? none so kind and true!
Do not grieve Him longer: come and trust Him, do!
He has waited all your days: He waits for you.

One there is who loves you: oh, receive Him do!
He has waited all the day: even for you.

2 Tenderly He woos you: do not slight His call;
Though your sins are many, He’ll forgive them all.
Turn to Him, repenting: He will cleanse you now! -- through? spons
        He is waiting at your heart: why waitest thou?

3 Jesus still is waiting: sinner, why delay?
To His arms of mercy rise and haste away!
Only come believing, He will save you now! ---- true? spons
        He is waiting at the door: why waitest thou?

SS&S 448  7.6.

Only a step to Jesus!
Then why not take it now?
Come, and your sin confessing,
To Him your Saviour bow.

Only a step! only a step!
Come, He waits for you;
Come, and your sin confessing,
You shall receive a blessing:
Do not reject the mercy
He freely offers you.

2 Only a step to Jesus!
Believe, and you shall live;
Lovingly now He’s waiting,
And ready to forgive.

3 Only a step to Jesus!
A step from sin to grace;
What has your heart decided?
The moments fly apace.

4 Only a step to Jesus!
Oh, why not come, and say—
“Gladly to Thee, my Saviour,
I give myself away”?

Omit last verse??

EH 311

Our Lord is now rejected,
And by the world disowned;
By many still neglected,
And by the few enthroned:
But soon He’ll come in glory—
The hour is drawing nigh;
For the crowning day is coming

Oh, the crowning day is coming!
Is coming by-and-by;
When our Lord shall come in power
And glory from on high.
Oh, the glorious sight will gladden
Each waiting, watchful eye,
In the crowning day that’s coming

2 The heavens shall glow with splendour,
But brighter far than they
The saints shall shine in glory,
As Christ shall them array.
The beauty of the Saviour
Shall dazzle every eye,
In the crowning day that’s coming

3 Our pain shall then be over,
We’ll sin and sigh no more;
Behind us all of sorrow,
And nought but joy before.
A joy in our Redeemer,
As we to Him are nigh,
In the crowning day that’s coming

4 Let all that look for, hasten
The coming joyful day,
By earnest consecration
To walk the narrow way,
By gathering in the lost ones
For whom our Lord did die,—
For the crowning day that’s coming

EH 313  7.6.

Our sins were borne by Jesus,
The substitute from God:
He took them all, and freed us
From the accursèd load.
Our guilt was borne by Jesus,
Who washed the crimson stains
White in His blood most precious,
’Till not a spot remains.

2 Our wants are known to Jesus;
All fulness dwells in Him;
He heals from all diseases,
Who did our souls redeem.
We tell our griefs to Jesus,
Our burdens and our cares;
He from them all releases
Who all our sorrow shares.

3 We love the name of Jesus,
The Christ of God, the Lord;
Like fragrance on the breezes
His name is spread abroad.
We long to be with Jesus,
With all the ransomed throng,
Forever sing His praises,
The one eternal song.

GT 134/EH 314  L.M.

Ours is a pardon bought with blood,
Amazing truth! the blood of One
Who, without usurpation, could
Lay claim to heaven’s eternal throne.

2 No victim of inferior worth
Could ward the stroke that justice aimed;
For none but He, in heaven or earth,
Could offer that which justice claimed.

3 But He, the Lord of glory, came;
Upon the cross He bowed His head;
He suffered pain, He suffered shame,
And lay a prisoner with the dead.

4 But lo! He’s risen from the grave,
And bears the greatest, sweetest name;
The Lord, almighty now to save
From sin, from death, from endless shame.

GT 135 Chorus or P.M.

Out in the desert, seeking, seeking,
Sinner, ’tis Jesus seeking for you;
Tenderly calling, calling, calling,
“This way, dear lost one, oh, come to Me, do!”

Jesus is calling, Jesus is calling,
Why do you linger, why tarry away?
Come to Him quickly, say to Him gladly,
“Lord I am coming, coming today.”

2 Still He is waiting, waiting, waiting,
Oh, what compassion beams in His eye!
Hear Him repeating, gently, gently,
“Come to your Saviour, oh! why will you die?”

3 Lovingly pleading, pleading, pleading,
Mercy though slighted bears with you yet;
You can be happy, happy, happy,
Come ere your life-star for ever shall set.

GB 229 or  P.M.

Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night,
Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into Thy freedom, gladness, and light,
Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of my sickness into Thy health,
Out of my want and into Thy wealth,
Out of my sin and into Thyself,
Jesus, I come to Thee!

2 Out of my shameful failure and loss,
Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into the glorious gain of Thy cross,
Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm,
Out of life’s storm and into Thy calm,
Out of distress to jubilant psalm,
Jesus, I come to Thee!

3 Out of unrest and arrogant pride,
Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into Thy blessèd will to abide,
Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of myself to dwell in Thy love,
Out of despair to rapture above,
Upward for aye on wings like a dove,
Jesus, I come to Thee!

4 Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,
Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into the joy and light of Thy home,
Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of the depths of ruin untold,
Into the peace of Thy sheltering fold,
Ever Thy glorious face to behold,
Jesus, I come to Thee!

SS&S 488  8.5.

Pass me not, O gentle Saviour,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Saviour, Saviour, hear my humble cry;
And while others Thou art calling, do not pass me by.

2 Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief.

3 Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.

4 Thou the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me;
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
Whom in heaven but Thee?

GT 137   8.7.4.

Passing onward, quickly passing;
Yes, but whither, whither bound?
Is it to the many mansions
Where eternal rest is found?
Passing onward, passing onward—
Yes, but whither, whither bound?

2 Passing onward, quickly passing,
Nought the wheels of time can stay!
Sweet the thought that some are going
To the realms of perfect day,
Passing onward!
Christ their Leader—Christ their way.

3 Passing onward, quickly passing,
Many on the downward road;
Careless of their souls immortal,
Heeding not the call of God,
Passing onward!
Slighting still the Saviour’s blood.

4 Passing onward, quickly passing,
Time its course will quickly run;
Sinner, hear the fond entreaty
Of the ever-gracious One—
“Come and welcome!
’Tis by Me that life is won.”

GB 338  10.10.

Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

2 Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

3 Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.

4 Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.

5 Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

6 It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to heaven’s perfect peace.

EH 316

Peace was procured by Christ, the Son of God,
When on the cross He shed His precious blood,
Which brought a pardon, perfect, full and free,
To guilty, rebel sinners such as we.

2 Peace is proclaimed from heaven’s bright courts of love;
The Victor takes His seat, and from above
The gladsome message sounds in weary ears
That Christ binds broken hearts and stays their tears.

3 Peace is possessed by those who simply hide
In Christ alone, and in His word confide;
Read clear their pardon, written full and plain
By God Himself, who sees them without stain.

4 O sinner, Christ is waiting you to bless;
His love, which now flows forth in righteousness,
Seeks to bestow on weary sin-sick hearts
That living peace which He alone imparts.

Good T. 155

Praise the Lord, who died to save us,
Praise His ever-gracious name;
Praise Him that He lives to bless us,
Now and evermore the same.
Precious Saviour, precious Saviour,
We would all Thy love proclaim.

2 Grace it was, yes, grace abounding,
Brought Thee down to save the lost;
All above, His throne surrounding,
Praise Him, praise Him, all His host.
Saints adore Him,
You are they who owe Him most.

3 Praise His name who died to save us;
’Tis by Him His people live;
And in Him the Father gave us
All that boundless love could give:
Life eternal
In our Saviour we receive.

EH 320   P.M.

Praise the Saviour, we who know Him,
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
All we have and are.

2 Jesus is the name that charms us,
He for conflict fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
While we trust in Him.

3 Trust in Him, you saints, for ever;
He is faithful, changing never;
Neither force nor guile can sever
Those He loves from Him.

4 Keep us, Lord, Oh keep us cleaving
To Thyself and still believing,
Till the hour of our receiving
Promised joys with Thee!

5 Then we shall be where we would be,
Then we shall be what we should be;
Things that are not now, nor could be,
Soon shall be our own.

EH 324

Precious name! the name of Jesus,
Son of God most high,
Who in love to guilty sinners,
Came to die.

2 Precious name! the story telling
Of His humble birth,
Of His lonely pathway trodden
Here on earth.

3 Precious name! of Him the Saviour,
Come the lost to save;
In His grace, for ruined sinners
All He gave.

4 Precious name! of Him who suffered
On the shameful tree;
Gave Himself, the willing Victim,
Spotless He.

5 Precious name! enthroned in heaven,
Still that name He bears;
On His brow the crown of glory
Now He wears.

6 Precious, peerless name of Jesus,
None can tell its worth;
Sweetest name there is in heaven
Or on earth.

EH 325 or P.M.

Precious, precious blood of Jesus
Shed on Calvary;
Shed for rebels and for sinners,—
Shed for me.

2 Precious blood that has redeemed us,
All the price is paid!
Perfect pardon now is offered,
Peace is made.

3 Precious, precious blood of Jesus,
Let it make you whole;
Let it flow in mighty cleansing
O’er your soul.

4 Though your sins are red like crimson,
Deep in scarlet glow,
Jesus’ precious blood can make them
White as snow.

5 Precious, precious blood of Jesus,
Ever flowing free!
Oh believe it! Oh receive it!
’Tis His plea.

6 Precious blood, whose full atonement
Makes us near to God!
Precious blood, our song and glory,
Praise and laud!

GT 141

Precious word of deepest meaning,
Softly falling on mine ear;
Fraught with joy, and comfort giving,
Banishing all craven fear:
“Trust!” yes, “Trust!” ’tis sweetly sounding,
Voice of Him who came to die!
“Trust in Me then rest, thus finding
Cloudless joy with Me on high.”

2 Lost and ruined, vile and wayward,
Deepening gloom hung o’er my path;
Sin recounting, death I fearèd,
Loomed before me endless wrath;
Now His voice so sweet and tender,
Gently whispers to my soul,
“Trust! oh, trust in Me, your Saviour,
I am He who makes you whole.”

3 Can I doubt, Lord, when I view Thee
In Thine hour of deepest woe;
Waves and billows rolling o’er Thee,
Sorrow Thine none else could know.
Doubt Thee! Jesus, willing Victim
In my stead on Calvary’s tree,
Oh! what love, Lord, all transcending,
Led Thee there to die for me.

4 “Trust!” O Saviour, Lord, I trust Thee.
Is the answering word of faith
Of my soul—till now so weary—
To Thy matchless perfect grace;
And thus trusting, simply trusting,
Joy and peace my heart possess:
Waiting now for Thine own coming,
Then to shine in endless bliss.

GB 255

Prove Him! An almighty Saviour
Is the Saviour still;
Prove that He can save you fully—
Can and will.

2 Prove Him! He is God eternal,
An unchanging Friend,
With a love that knows not either
Bound or end.

3 Boundless is His love as ocean,
Wide as heaven’s own roof,
Put the riches of His mercy
To the proof.

4 Prove Him now—for now you need Him;
Life is poor indeed
Lacking His great love that fills up
All our need.

5 Prove Him—now the time of mercy,
’Tis the Saviour’s day;
Make it yours, don’t let it sadly
Die away.

6 Prove Him—with your sin and sorrow,
Come; He longs to give
Pardon, freedom, with all gladness,
Joys that live!

7 Heaven within you, heaven above you,
Then your heart will raise
Glad thanksgiving for His mercies,
Songs of praise!

GT 142 Dactylic + Chorus or P.M.

Ransomed for ever from sin’s galling chain,
Raise we our anthems to Him who was slain;
Sing of His blood that can cleanse every stain,
Tell out His triumph—He lives once again.

Sinner you may . . . trust Him today;
Once He was slain, but He’s living again,
Now you may trust Him . . . may trust Him today.
Now you may trust Him . . . may trust Him today.

2 Thorns formed the crown that was placed on His head,
Hated and scorned, to the cross He was led,
There, for poor sinners, He willingly bled,
Oh! how He loved us—who died in our stead.

3 He bore sin’s judgment—forsaken, alone,
Blessèd Redeemer! the work He has done—
Tell out His triumph—God’s glorious Son.
Vanquished the foe and the victory won.

4 Trust Him this moment, the blessing receive,
Jesus the Saviour will never deceive;
You of your burden He’ll gladly relieve,
Ransomed for ever are all who believe.

EH 329 or P.M.

Ransomed saints, your voices raise,
Jesus saves!
Sing aloud your heavenly lays,
Jesus saves!
Whisper in the sinner’s ears,
Not your works and not your tears,
Can dispel your guilty fears:
*Jesus saves!

2 Yes, He died upon the cross,*
There He suffered shame and loss,*
There He did for sin atone,
Dying on that cross alone:
Now upon the Father’s throne,*

3 Tell the joyous news around,*
Make the very heavens resound,*
Weary not to tell the news,
That if thousands still refuse,
All shall be without excuse:*

4 Soon the heavens shall hear His voice,*
Then His people will rejoice,*
When He calls His own away,
Never more shall Mercy say
This is still salvation’s day:*

SV 103 Dactylic & Chorus

Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it,
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
Redeemed thro’ His infinite mercy,
His child, and forever, I am.

Redeemed, Redeemed, Redeemed by the blood  of the Lamb:
Redeemed, Redeemed, His child, and forever I am.

2 Redeemed, and so happy in Jesus,
No language my rapture can tell;
I know that the light of His presence
With me does continually dwell.

3 I think of my blessèd Redeemer,
I think of Him all the day long;
I sing, for I cannot be silent,
His love is the theme of my song.

4 I know I shall see in His beauty
My Lord in whose law I delight;
He’s lovingly guarding my footsteps,
And giving me songs in the night.

5 I know there’s a crown that is waiting
In yonder bright mansion for me;
And soon with the spirits made perfect,
At home with the Lord I shall be.

GB 268

Redemption! oh wonderful story—
Glad message for you and for me:
That Jesus has purchased our pardon,
And paid all the debt on the tree.

Believe it, O sinner, believe it;
Receive the glad message—’tis true;
Trust now in the crucified Saviour,
Salvation He offers to you.

2 From death unto life He has brought us,
And made us by grace sons of God;
A fountain is opened for sinners:
Oh, wash and be cleansed in His blood!

3 No longer shall sin have dominion,
Though present to tempt and annoy;
For Christ, in His blessèd redemption,
The power of sin shall destroy.

4 Accept now God’s offer of mercy;
To Jesus, oh, hurry today;
For He will receive him that follows,
And never will turn him away.

EH 331  11.11. & Chorus 13.13. or P.M.

Rejoice and be glad! the Redeemer has come!
Go look on His cradle, His cross and His tomb.

Sound His praises, tell the story, of Him who was slain;
Sound His praises, tell with gladness, He’s living again.

2 Rejoice and be glad! it is sunshine at last!
The clouds have departed, the shadows are past.

3 Rejoice and be glad! for the blood has been shed!
Redemption is finished, the price has been paid.

4 Rejoice and be glad! now the pardon is free!
The Just for the unjust has died on the tree.

5 Rejoice and be glad! for the Lamb that was slain
O’er death is triumphant, He’s living again.

6 Rejoice and be glad! for He’s coming again!
He’s coming in glory, the Lamb that was slain.

EH 332 or P.M.

Repeat the story o’er and o’er,
Of grace so full and free:
I love to hear it more and more,
Since grace has rescued me.
The half was never told, . .
The half was never told, . .
Of grace divine, . . so wonderful, . .
The half . .was never told. . .

2 Of peace I only knew the name,
Nor found my soul its rest,
Until the sweet-voiced Saviour came
To soothe my weary breast.
The half was never told,
Of peace divine, so wonderful,
The half was never told.

3 My highest place is—lying low
At my Redeemer’s feet;
No real joy in life I know
But in His presence sweet.
The half was never told,
Of joy divine, so wonderful,
The half was never told.

4 And oh, what rapture will it be,
With all the hosts above,
To sing through all eternity
The wonders of His love!
The half was never told,
Of love divine, so wonderful,
The half was never told.

SH 190 Omit - NRF

Rescued when perishing,
Cared for when dying,
Snatched as a brand from hell’s fierce burning wave;
Sought when an erring one,
Raised up when fallen,
Praise be to Jesus, the “Mighty to Save.”

Rescued when perishing,
Cared for when dying—
Justified, pardoned, eternally saved.

2 Long I lived slighting Him,
Still He stood waiting,
Waiting my sin-burdened soul to relieve;
Pleading so lovingly,
Saying so gently,
Look to Me, weary one, only believe.

3 Down in my sinful heart,
Crushed by the tempter,
No good thing dwells there that grace can restore;
But in my Saviour’s heart,
Brimful of kindness,
Chords of compassion vibrate evermore.

4 Praising, not perishing,
No dread of dying,
Life everlasting in Christ, God has given;
Walking the narrow way,
Patiently waiting,
Waiting for Jesus to take me to heaven.

EH 335   S.M.

“Revive Thy work, O Lord!”
Exalt Thy precious name;
And may Thy love in every heart
Be kindled to a flame.

2 “Revive Thy work, O Lord!”
Create soul-thirst for Thee;
And hung’ring for the bread of life
Oh, may our spirits be!

4 “Revive Thy work, O Lord!”
Give pow’r unto Thy word;
Grant that Thy blessed gospel may
In living faith be heard.

5 “Revive Thy work, O Lord!”
And give refreshing showers;
The glory shall be all Thine own,
The blessing, Lord, be ours!

EH 339

Rock of ages! cleft for me,
Grace has hid me safe in Thee!
Where the water and the blood
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Are of sin the double cure,
Cleansing from its guilt and power.

2 Not the labour of my hands
Could fulfil the law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears for ever flow,
Nought for sin could e’er atone,
But Thy blood, and Thine alone!

3 Found by Thee before I sought,
Unto Thee in mercy brought,
I have Thee for righteousness—
From Thy fulness grace for grace;
Thou hast washed me in Thy blood,
Made me live, and live to God.

4 While I draw this fleeting breath,
If my eyelids close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
Still of Thee I’ll sing alone.
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
All my boast and joy’s in Thee!

EH 341 & Chorus or P.M.

Safe in Christ the weakest child
Stands in all God’s favour;
All in Christ are reconciled
Through that only Saviour.

Safe in Christ! Safe in Christ!
He’s their glory ever;
None can pluck them from His hand,
They shall perish never.

2 Once their sins on every side
Seemed to tower o’er them;
Christ has stemmed the angry tide,
Been through death before them.

3 In His death they’ve crossed the sea,
Passed through condemnation;
Well they may triumphant be,
Saved through God’s salvation.

4 On the resurrection side,
Death’s dark sea behind them;
All their sins beneath the tide,
None can ever find them.

5 Now by faith the justified
Know that God is for them;
To the world they’re crucified,
Glory is before them.

GT 148  P.M.

Safe is the vilest sinner, who, confiding
In the blest merits of the blood alone,
Learns God’s great heart in deepest love providing
His only Son, who did for sin atone.
Trust now that Saviour, whose riven side
Opened a fountain for healing far and wide.

2 Sure is the sinner on God’s word relying,
Not on his feelings as they come and go:
“He has declared it,” faith delights replying,
Calming each fear, and silencing each foe.
Soon earth and heaven will pass away,
God’s word unchanging remains the same for aye.

3 Satisfied, too, the love of Christ enjoying,
Oh! ever upward, turn your gaze to Him:
Changed to His image, all your soul set longing
To see His face where nought the eye can dim.
Lord, haste that moment when in the air
Thou’lt call Thy people to share Thy home so fair.

EH 343 & Chorus or P.M.

Salvation! Oh, salvation!
Endearing, precious sound!
Shout, shout the word “Salvation!”
To earth’s remotest bound:
Salvation for the guilty,
Salvation for the lost,
Salvation for the wretched,
The sad and sorrow-tossed.

This good gift unto us
Is sent from heaven above;
Then praise the Lord!
O praise the Lord!
For all His love.

2 Salvation for the aged,
Salvation for the young,
Salvation e’en for children,
Proclaim with joyful tongue:
Salvation for the wealthy,
Salvation for the poor,
Salvation for the lowly,
E’en life for evermore.

3 Salvation without money,
Salvation without price,
Salvation without labour,—
Believing will suffice;
Salvation now—this moment!
Then why, oh why delay?
You may not see tomorrow;
Now is salvation’s day.

EH 346 & Chorus
Saved through the blood of Jesus,
Saved from all guilt and shame,
Saved is the soul who trusts Him,
Trusts in His precious Name.
Safe in the Rock of Ages
Fearlessly he may hide;
Safe from the storms of judgment,
Safe from the swelling tide.
Saved through the blood of Jesus,
Perfect and only plea;
Nought else avails for sinners,
Nought else avails for me.

2 Saved through the blood of Jesus,
Saved from the wrath to come,
Saved too to dwell for ever
Safe in the Father’s home.
Joy is among the angels,
Joy in the heart of God,
When an unworthy sinner
Trusts in the precious blood.

3 Saved through the blood of Jesus,
Saved from eternal doom,
Saved too to share Christ’s glory,
Saved until He shall come:
Saved from o’erwhelming sorrow,
Saved from distracting care,
Saved from a world of evil,
Saved from all doubt and fear.

3 Saved for the day of glory,
Then the redeemed will sing;
Still of the blood of Jesus
Loudly their praise will ring.
Saved now to wait with patience,
Looking by faith afar,
Till just before the dawning
Rises the Morning Star.

SH 197 & Chorus

Seeking the lost, yes kindly entreating
Wanderers on the mountain astray;
“Come unto Me,” His message repeating,
Words of the Master speaking to-day.

Going afar..... upon the mountain,
Bringing the wand’rer back again,
Into the fold.....of my Redeemer,
Jesus the Lamb for sinners slain.

2 Seeking the lost, and pointing to Jesus,
Souls that are weak and hearts that are sore,
Leading them forth in ways of salvation,
Showing the path to life evermore.

3 Thus I would go on missions of mercy,
Following Christ from day unto day;
Cheering the faint, and raising the fallen,
Pointing the lost to Jesus, the Way.

Kes 37

Seek you first, not earthly pleasure,
Fading joy and failing treasure,
But the love that knows no measure
Seek you first, seek you first.

2 Seek you first, not earth’s aspirings,
Ceaseless longings, vain desirings,
But your precious soul’s requirings
Seek you first.

3 Seek you first God’s peace and blessing;
You have all if this possessing:
Come, your need and sin confessing,
Seek Him first.

4 Seek Him first, then when forgiven,
Pardoned, made an heir of heaven,
Let your life to Him be given:
Seek this first.
