Hymns from the Land of Luther
Will that not joyful be
Remember me, my God! remember me!
Weep not--Jesus lives on high
Here is my heart!--my God, I give it Thee
Tremble not, though darkly gather
Darkness reigns--the hum of life's commotion
Jesus, still lead on
Depart, my child! the Lord thy spirit calls
Arise! ye lingering saints, arise!
My God with me in every place!
Oh! how blessed are ye, saints forgiven
Quietly rest the woods and dales
My God! I know that I must die--
How weary and how worthless this life at times appears!
Behold me here, in grief draw near
Never couldst thou bear to grieve us
Ah! grieve not so, nor so lament
Come, brothers, let us onward--
My Father is the mighty Lord, whose arm
My Jesus, as Thou wilt!
Yes! our Shepherd leads with gentle hand
Rejoice, all ye believers
Smiling, a bright-eyed seraph bent
How blessed, from the bonds of sin
Lord, the waves are breaking o'er me and around
I journey forth rejoicing
All things are yours! Oh! sweet message of mercy divine!
Oh! sweetest words that Jesus could have sought
Sun of comfort, art thou fled for ever?
I will love Thee, all my treasure!
What mean ye by this wailing
A gentle Angel walketh throughout world of woe
Ah! this heart is void and chill
Jesus, Sun of righteousness
Our beloved have departed
Jesus! what was that which drew Thee
Once a merchant travelled far and wide
Be still, my soul!--the Lord is on thy side
Weary, waiting to depart
Jesus' hour is not yet come;
We praise and bless Thee, gracious Lord
Flow, my tears, flow still faster
Meet again! yes, we shall meet again
If only He is mine--
What shall I be, my Lord, when I behold Thee
God calling yet!--and shall I never hearken
I have had my days of blessing
I rest with Thee, Lord! whither should I go?
O silent Lamb! for me Thow hast endured
Praise to Jehovah! the almighty King of Creation!
Come forth! come on, with solemn song!
Thou shalt rise! my dust, thou shalt arise!
What no human eye hath seen
Hallelujah! I believe!
Christ's path was sad and lowly
The Christian's badge of honor here
A Pilgrim and a stranger
O happy house! where Thou art loved the best
Whither, oh! whither?
A little while!--so spake our gracious Lord
This life is like a flying dream
Dark mighty Ocean, rolling to our feet!
Hallelujah! Fairest morning
Ah Christian! if the needy poor
Lord our God, in reverence lowly
Thus said the Lord: Thy days of health are over!
Hear me, my friends! the hour has come
Be Thou my Friend, and look upon my heart
As Thou wilt, my God! I ever say
Lord, remove the veil away
What God decrees, child of His love
At last all shall be well with those, His own
I know a sweet and silent spot
Beloved and honored, fare thee well!
Round this earth, and round her children
The Lord shall come in dead of night
O sweet home-echo on the pilgrim's way
