Hymn  70

Elizabeth C. Adams

God giveth light to all
Who ask with prayer sincere;
He doth not fail to hear that call;
His Truth is ever near.

Plain shall His guidance be,
If thou but seek the right;
Clearly thy pathway thou shalt see,
A line of purest light.

God is thy light and health;
No death nor darkness there;
Turn but to Him, accept His wealth,
And all His glory share.

Hymn  379

Catherine Winkworth

Well for him who, all things losing,
E’en himself doth count as naught,
Still the one thing needful choosing
That with all true bliss is fraught.

Well for him who nothing knoweth
But his God, whose boundless love
Makes the heart wherein it gloweth
Calm and pure and faithful prove.

Well for him who, all forsaking,
Walketh not in shadows vain,
But the path of peace is taking
Through the vale of tears and pain.

O that we our hearts might sever
From earth’s tempting vanities,
Fixing them on Him forever
In whom all our fullness lies.

Hymn 87

Frederick W. Faber*

God’s glory is a wondrous thing,
Most strange in all its ways,
And of all things on earth, least like
What men agree to praise.

O blest is he to whom is given
The instinct that can tell
That God is on the field, although
He seems invisible.

And blest is he who can divine
Where right doth really lie,
And dares to side with what seems wrong
To mortals’ blindfold eye.

For right is right, since God is God;
And right the day must win;
To doubt would be disloyalty,
To falter would be sin.


Sleepers Awake! A Voice is Calling, BWV 645                                      Johann Sebastian Bach
