1.  He that believes and is baptiz’d

Shall see the Lord’s salvation;

Baptiz’d into the death of Christ,

He is a new creation;

Thro’ Christ’s redemption he shall stand

Among the glorious heav’nly band

Of ev’ry tribe and nation.

2.  With one accord, O God, we pray:

Grant us Thy Holy Spirit;

Look Thou on our infirmity

Thro’ Jesus’ blood and merit!

Grant us to grow in grace each day

By holy baptism that we may

Eternal life inherit!

1.  My heart remains in wonder

Before that lowly bed

Within the stable yonder

Where Christ, my Lord, was laid.

My faith finds there its treasure,

My heart its pure delight,

A joy beyond all measure,

The blessed Christmas night.

2.  But oh, my heart is riven

With grief and sore dismay

To see the Lord of heaven

Repose on straw and hay,

That He, whom angels offer

Their worship and acclaim,

From sinful man must suffer

Such scorn, neglect, and shame.

3.  Why should not castles royal

Before him open stand,

And kings as servants loyal

Obey His least command

Why came He not in splendor,

Arrayed in robes of light,

And called the world to render

Its homage to His might.

4.  The sparrow finds a gable

Where it may build its next,

The oxen know their stable

For shelter, food, and rest,

Must then my Lord and Savior

A homeless stranger go,

Denied the simplest favor

His lowly creatures know?

5.  O come, my Lord, I pray Thee!

And be my honor’d guest,

I will in love array Thee

A home within my breast.

That home can be no stranger

To Thee, who made me free,

Thou shalt find there a manger

Warmed by my love to Thee.

1.  Arise, all things that God has made

And praise His might and glory;

Each leaflet and each grassy blade

Does tell a wondrous story.

2.  Tho’ all the kings on earth did show

Their utmost strength and power,

They could not make a leaflet grow,

Nor mend a broken flower.

3.  What shall I say whene’er I walk

Where flowers are abounding

And hear the birds together talk,

As thousand harps were sounding.

4.  What shall I say when I behold

The stars in countless numbers

And see their smiling charm unfold,

While nature deeply slumbers.

5.  What shall I say?  Weak are my words

And humble my opinion.

How great Thy wisdom, Lord of lords,

Thy might and Thy dominion!

1.  Dayspring of eternity,

Brightness of the Father’s glory,

Dawn on us that we may see

Clouds and darkness flee before Thee;

Drive afar, with conqu’ring might,

All our night.

2.  Let Thy grace, like morning dew,

Fall on hearts in Thee confiding;

Thy sweet comfort ever new,

Fill our souls with strength abiding,

And Thy quick’ning eyes behold

Thy dear fold.

Give the falme of love to burn

Till the hands of sin it breaketh,

Till, at each new day’s return,

Purer light my soul awaketh:

O ere twilight come, let me

Rise to Thee.

4.  Thou who hast gone up on high,

Grant that, when Thy trumpet soundeth,

When with glory, in the sky,

Thee Thy cloud of saints surroundeth,

We may stand among Thine own,

Round Thy throne.

5.  Light us to the golden shore,

O Thou rising Sun of morning!

Lead where tears shall flow no more,

Where all sighs to songs are turning,

Where Thy glory sheds alway

Perfect day.

1.  There many shall come from the east and the west

And sit at the feast of salvation

With Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the blest,

Obeying the Lord’s invitation.

Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!

2.  But they who have always resisted His grace

And on their own virtue depended,

Shall then be condemn’d and cast out from His face,

Eternally lost and unfriended.

Have mercy upon us, Lord Jesus.

3.  O may we all hear when our Shepherd doth call,

In accents persuasive and tender,

That while here is time we make haste one and all

And find Him, our mighty defender.

Have mercy upon us, Lord Jesus.

4.  God grant that I may of His infinite love,

Remain in His merciful keeping;

And sit with the King at His table above,

When here in the grave I am sleeping.

Have mercy upon us, Lord Jesus.

5.  All trials are then like a dream that is past,

Forgotten all trouble and sorrow;

All questions and doubts have been answer’d at last;

Then dawneth eternity’s morrow.

Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!
