1. On the mount of wondrous glory,
Borne aloft by faith we stand,
While we drink the crystal waters
Flowing down from Eden's land.

How the Heart its toil forgets,
(How the heart, its toil forgets,)
In the joy we there behold;
(In the joy we there behold, there behold,)
In the fulness of His love,
(fulness of His love, of His love,)
That is better felt than told.

2. On the mount of wondrous glory,
Where so oft 'tis ours to be,
In the brightness of His presence,
Christ, our Lord, reveal'd we see.

3. On the mount of wondrous glory,
Where he bids me come and rest,
Jesus spreads a feast before us,
Making each a welcome guest.

4. If on earth our souls are honor'd
With such visions of delight,
Who can tell our heights of rapture,
When our faith is lost in sight.

1. Awake, awake, O heart of mine!
Sing praise to God above;
Take up the song of endless years,
And sing redeeming love!
Redeemed by Him who bore my sins,
When on the cross He died;
Redeemed and purchased with His blood,
Redeemed and sanctified.

Awake, awake, O heart of mine!
(Awake, awake, O heart of mine!)
Sing praise, sing praise to God above;
(Sing praise, sing praise to God above;)
Take up the song of endless years,
(Take up the song of endless years,)
And sing redeeming love!
(And sing, and sing redeeming love!)

2. Redeemed by Him, my Lord and King,
Who saves me day by day;
My life and all its ransomed powers
Could ne'er His love repay.
And yet His mercy condescends
My humble gift to own;
And thro' the riches of His grace,
He brings me near His throne.

3. Oh love, unchanging, love sublime!
Not all the hosts above
Can reach the height, or sound the depth
Of God's eternal love.
This wondrous love enfolds the world,
It fills the realms above;
'Tis boundless as eternity:
Oh, praise the God of love.

1. "Bear ye one another's burdens,"
'Tis the blessed Master's will;
Only thus can we be like him,
And the royal law fulfil.

With grace from above

(With grace from above Let us walk in love)
Let us walk, let us walk in love;
Let us bear one another's burdens,
Let us walk, let us walk in love.

2. "Bear ye one another's burdens,"
For the road is rough at times,
And a kindly hand will strengthen
Him who stumbles as he climbs.

3. "Bear ye one another's burdens,"
All our own will Jesus share;
Free the hear to feel for others,
Resting sweetly in His care.

4. "Bear ye one another's burdens,"
Heart to heart and hand to hand;
'Tis the common faith unites us,
Pilgrims to one better land.

1. Dost thou know at thy bolted heart's door tonight,
The Savior in meekness doth stand,
And longs for admission? O pray, listen now
To the knock of the nail-pierced hand.

Heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand,

(Heed the knock, heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand,)
Heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand,
(Heed the knock, heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand,)
Swing the door open wide,
Bid him enter and abide,
Heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand.
(Heed the knock, heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand).

2. Outside he has stood thro' the length of the years,
Since mother the love-flame first fanned,
You have spurned and rejected, O give heed tonight
To the knock of the nail-pierced hand.

3. You turn not away from a friend at your door,—
There's none like this Friend in the land;
he asks to come in to forever abide;
Heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand.

4. All the pain and the shame of his death on the tree
A welcome from you should command;
Since the weight of your sins in his body he bore,
Heed the knock of the nail-pierced hand.

Hark! hark! the sound!
Hear the joyful echo
Thro’ the world resound;
Christ the Lord proclaims them,
Hear and heed the call:
Come, ye starving ones that perish,
Room, room for all.

Whosoever asketh
Jesus will receive;
Whosoever thirsteth,

See the living waters,
Flowing full and free;
O the blessed whosoever,
That means me.

Hark! hark! again,
Rushing o’er the mountain,
Sweeping o’er the plain;

‘Tis the Savior’s call:
Come, for ev’rything is ready,
Room, room for all.

Henceforth and forever
All glory be Thine.

With prophets and martyrs

1. No cross for me, O blessed Lord and Savior?
No cross for me, when Thou Thine own didst bear,
At midnight hour within the garden kneeling,
While pitying stars beheld Thy anguish there?

There is a cross, and gladly I accept it;

There is a warfare with a host of sin;
But Thou hast op'd the gate of life eternal,
And Thou wilt let Thine own dear children in.

2.  No cross for me, when Thou the King of glory,
The Well-Beloved, the Father's only Son,
Didst with Thy blood atone for all transgressions?
For Thou hast tasted death for ev'ry one.

3. No cross for me? shall I on Pisgah's mountain
Content abide, from care and trial free?
Ah, no, but thro' the wilderness of sorrow,
Tho' pierced with thorns, my feet shall follow Thee!

4. "Take up the cross if thou art my disciple!"—
Deep in my soul I hear Thy words of love:
"Take up the cross, and, when the war is over,
Home, rest, and crown, with endless joy above!"
