Calvary’s Anthem

HEAVENLY FATHER, Thou hast led me singing to the cross where I fling down all my burdens and see them vanish, where my mountains of guilt are levelled to a plain, where my sins disappear, though they are the greatest that exist, and are more in number than the grains of fine sand; For there…

Love

LORD JESUS, Give me to love thee, to embrace thee, though I once took lust and sin in my arms. Thou didst love me before I loved thee, an enemy, a sinner, a loathsome worm. Thou didst own me when I disclaimed myself; Thou dost love me as a son, and weep over me as…

Truth in Jesus

LIFE-GIVING GOD, Quicken me to call upon thy name, for my mind is ignorant, my thoughts vagrant, my affections earthly, my heart unbelieving, and only thy Spirit can help my infirmities. I approach thee as Father and Friend, my portion for ever, my exceeding joy, my strength of heart. I believe in thee as the…

Christian Love

O LOVER OF THE LOVELESS, It is thy will that I should love thee with heart, soul, mind, strength, and my neighbour as myself. But I am not sufficient for these things. There is by nature no pure love in my soul; Every affection in me is turned from thee; I am bound, as slave…

Love Rest in God

MY DEAR LORD I depend wholly upon thee, wean me from all other dependences. Thou art my all, thou dost overrule all and delight in me. Thou art the foundation of goodness, how can I distrust thee? how be anxious about what happens to me? In the light of thy preciousness the world and all…

Vain Service

O MY LORD, Forgive me for serving thee in sinful ways — by glorying in my own strength, by forcing myself to minister through necessity, by accepting the applause of others, by trusting in assumed grace and spiritual affection, by a faith that rests upon my hold on Christ, not on him alone, by having…

Humiliation

SOVEREIGN LORD, When clouds of darkness, atheism, and unbelief come to me, I see thy purpose of love in withdrawing the Spirit that I might prize him more, in chastening me for my confidence in past successes, that my wound of secret godlessness might be cured. Help me to humble myself before thee by seeing…

Sleep

BLESSED CREATOR, Thou hast promised thy beloved sleep; Give me restoring rest needful for tomorrow’s toil; If dreams be mine, let them not be tinged with evil. Let thy Spirit make my time of repose a blessed temple of his holy presence. May my frequent lying down make me familiar with death, the bed I…

God’s Cause

SOVEREIGN GOD, Thy cause, not my own, engages my heart, and I appeal to thee with greatest freedom to set up thy kingdom in every place where Satan reigns; Glorify thyself and I shall rejoice, for to bring honour to thy name is my sole desire. I adore thee that thou art God, and long…

Sincerity

ELECTOR OF SAINTS, Blessed is the man whom thou choosest and callest to thyself. With thee is mercy, redemption, assurance, forgiveness; Thou hast lifted me, a prisoner, out of the pit of sin and pronounced my discharge, not only in the courts of heaven, but in the dock of conscience; hast justified me by faith,…
