Vernon Higham Hymns P

“Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by putting on of my hands.” 
2 Timothy 1:6
(  Builth)

Persuaded by Thy word,
I worship Thee,
Constrained to seek my Lord
At Calvary.
A burden gone away,
And blessedness to stay,
Removing all dismay:
I will not flee.

No shame shall wound my heart,
For Thine embrace
Of peace and power impart
Sufficient grace.
My life I now commit,
My will to Thee submit,
And at Thy feet I’ll sit,
To seek Thy face.

O grant me strength to hold
The gospel sweet;
A spirit true and bold
I gladly greet.
Committed to my care,
A truth beyond compare,
O give me grace to bear:
Thy foes defeat.

When error comes to lie,
O keep me, Lord;
Then stir Thy gift in me,
And power afford.
Declare Thy gospel sound,
Destroy when lies abound;
O Jesus, I have found
Thy word a sword.

“And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 
1 John 2:1
(665.665.786.  Jesu, Meine Freude)

Radiant in Thy glory,
I behold Thy mercy,
Blessèd Advocate.
Right hand of the Father,
There my rare Redeemer,
Lord compassionate!
Mercy’s day at our last dawn,
Great Redemption, resurrection:
Glorious satisfaction.

See the Holy city,
Splendid in its beauty,
Royal realm supreme.
God has planned in wisdom,
At the consummation,
Days above a dream!
Death’s dominion does not dare,
Tears and fears now gone for ever:
Welcome of our Father.

Heaven and home exalted,
Rest of all adopted,
Plan of love sublime.
Long were the afflictions,
Bitter persecutions,
In the scale of time.
Grace outweighs the fall and sin,
Hail incarnate, born of virgin,
Hail Almighty Sovereign!

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” 
Romans 12:1
(C.M.  Dunfermline or Mendip)

Reach out my soul to Him who loves
With powerful, pardoning grace.
Who touches me, my guilt removes,
And gives my soul its place.

Reach out my heart to Him who cares
And gives me life again,
Who lifts me up and now declares
That I may heaven attain.

Reach out my life and let it be
Transformed in service true;
O touch my days now filled with Thee,
To give my Lord His due.

My soul, my heart, my days I give
And live for Thee alone.
O bless this pittance and forgive,
Yet it is all Thine own.

“O that Thou wouldest rend the heavens, that Thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at Thy presence.” 
Isaiah 64:1
(87.87.D.  Prysgol)

Rend the heavens Thou Prince of Glory,
Melt the mountains with Thy grace;
Pour Thy presence, show Thy mercy
And the radiance of Thy face.
We believe that Thou art able
In Thy greatness and Thy love;
Make the nations fear and tremble,
As Thou comest from above.

Rend our hearts in sorrow sighing,
Stir our souls to seek for Thee;
Turn Thy wrath and meet our crying;
Help us from our sin to flee.
There is none that seeketh rightly,
Yet, O Father, we are Thine;
Come, O come, revive us quickly –
Make our hearts to Thee incline.

Cause us now Thy way to cherish,
And Thy righteousness to hold;
Hear our plea, Lord, else we perish!
Call and bring us to Thy fold.
None hath seen so dear a Saviour;
None hath heard so sweet a sound
As the name of our Redeemer:

May His praises now abound.


Thou dost meet the heart that seeks Thee,
Righteousness His robe and joy;
Thou delightest in Thy mercy
When our souls Thy grace employ.
Since the world began its journey
Eye and ear have never seen,
All the wonders of the glory
God provides, beyond our dream.

Lord the sight of our condition,
Degradation is our way;
Filthy garments our destruction,
Sin would hold its evil sway.
Like a faded leaf we wither,
Causèd by the wind to fly:
Brief our life and we can never
Stay the hand that bids us die.

Cause us now to call upon Thee,
Call upon the Name of Names;
Stir our hearts to gaze at Calvary,
There behold reviving flames.
Holy gates of Zion City,
Now let Israel see Thy face,
For the God of might and glory
Dwells within Thy holy place.

“Wilt Thou not revive us again: that Thy people may rejoice in Thee?” 
Psalm 85:6
(  Toulon)

Revive Thy work, as in the days of yore,
Stir up our souls and cause us to adore;
Stretch forth Thine arm and draw us to Thy fold:
Forgotten be our foolish days of old.

Sweet is the favour that we now receive,
Gentle the presence as we thus believe:
Visit Thy vineyard, grace to us incline,
And let our praises be Thy sweetest vine.

Humble our hearts, and lift us to Thy throne,
Cause us to cry and call on Thee alone.
Almighty Saviour, Lord, Redeemer, Friend;
Thou art our Sovereign God and glorious end.

Blessèd the people that upon Thee call,
Endless the blessing that our hearts enthral:
Glory to God His majesty be praised,
Incense of worship, evermore be raised.

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree.” 
1 Peter 2:24
(87.87.  Cross of Jesus)

Rich the wood that bore the Saviour;
Sad the nails that held Him there.
Yet they knew not of the horror
Of the hate that men did dare.

Wise the prophets in the pages
Of past centuries of time;
Joined with joy the laden sages,
In their gifts to Christ sublime.

Strange the sight, to men of sorrow,
Was the cross, a place of death;
Such the eternal Son did borrow
There to breathe His latest breath.

Yet the breath of life eternal
Was the gift He gave to men,
Saving them from hell infernal:
Let the people say ‘Amen!’


Hymns Index ABC

A beautiful name I have heard
A corn of wheat abides alone
A path of grace and mercy
Against Thee have I sinned
All glory to our God
All praise and honour to the child
All that I am I now confess
All that the eye can ever see
All we like sheep have gone astray
Angels gaze amazed in wonder
Armour of God, blest panoply
Around the throne of God above
Author of life and fount ...
Author of life and pardoning love
Awake O sword of Israel’s Lord
Awake, my soul, the view behold
Behold, how blessèd is the place
Belovèd of the Throne on High
Blest Holy Spirit, Breath Divine
Come let us praise that Holy Name
Come to Beth'lem town
Comfort our hearts, our strength ... 
Create in us, O Lord

Hymns Index DEF

Dawn of the resurrection day
Deep in my heart there is a sigh
Enable me to see
Eternal God, o sovereign grace
Eternal Splendour, Glorious God
Everlasting is the Word
Far off I see the kindness
Father forgive, they know not ...
Favour Thy land, O God of all creation

Hymns Index GHI

Gaze upon the hills of Zion
Gentle breeze, gentle breeze
Glory to Thee, my Lord
Glory to Thee, O God above
God eternal in salvation
God eternal, can it be
God of righteousness and mercy
God, unseen, yet I love Thee
Grant me a glimpse of glory Lord
Grant, O Lord, our pure petition
Great and wondrous is the mystery
Great is the gospel ...
Have you heard the voice of Jesus
Here behold a place of mercy
Here I stand in sin by nature
How blest are they who know ...
How sweet a message came to me
How sweet the knowledge in my heart
How wondrous is the fellowship
I find within my soul a sigh
I gaze at the wonder of love
I have not been this way before
I have not seen Thy face, O Lord
I heard about a narrow way
I heard about a place so sweet
I heard about the Son of Man
I heard the cry of mercy mild
I heard the Father’s cry
I once believed my life a gain
I saw a new vision of Jesus
I saw an altar far away
I thank Thee for that silent touch
I waited sadly for the Lord
I, while going on my way
In Christ there is a bond so sweet
In Eden fair, a place divine
Incarnate God, of virgin born

Rich the wood that bore the Saviour

Hymns Index STU

Sad were our chains and sore unkind
Saviour, see my spirit failing
Savour of Christ, possess my soul
See Christ the Victor raised
See yonder Calvary
See, my soul, the courts of God
Shake the earth, O mighty Saviour
Show me Thy hands, a myriad names
Show my soul this blessèd Saviour
Thanks be to Thee, my God
The day of Thy grace is at hand
The God of grace and love
The highway of the Lord ...
The Holy Ghost has come
The hour is come, the Saviour cried
The Lord drew near my love to find
The Lord is good with tender way
The Lord of glory formed the earth
The mansions of the Lord
The Saviour now ascends
The Saviour’s sad visage behold
The voice of God eternal
The ways of God outspan the sky
There came a day of glory
There is a fount of costly love
There is a home with God above
There is a love that Christ alone
There is a path from heaven above
There is a path of pardon
There is a place of sweet repose
There is a rest prepared
There is a Rock on which I stand
There is a Shepherd bidding
There’s none but Jesus ...
Thou art the dearest to my heart
Thy beauty Lord for ashes give
Thy gentle hand has touched my heart
Thy grace, my God, is mighty
Thy living word my heart did break
Thy perfect law is my delight
Thy tender grace I’ve sought so long
Turn us again, Shepherd Divine
Unmoved are they who in Thee stay
