Hymn 119

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 116 hymnals Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:23-24 First Line: Christ and his cross is all our theme Lyrics: Christ and his cross is all our theme; The myst'ries that we speak Are scandal in the Jew's esteem, And folly to the Greek. But souls enlightened from above With joy receive the word; They see what wisdom, power, and love Shine in their dying Lord. The vital savor of his name Restores their fainting breath; But unbelief perverts the same To guilt, despair, and death. Till God diffuse his graces down, Like showers of heav'nly rain, In vain Apollos sows the ground, And Paul may plant in vain.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Here Hangs a Man Discarded

Author: Brian Wren Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 7 hymnals Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 Lyrics: 1 Here hangs a man discarded, a scarecrow hoisted high, a nonsense pointing nowhere to all who hurry by. 2 Can such a clown of sorrows still bring a useful word when faith and love seem phantoms and every hope absurd? 3 Yet here is help and comfort for lives by comfort bound, when drums of dazzling progress give strangely hollow sound: 4 Life, emptied of all meaning, drained out in bleak distress, can share in broken silence our deepest emptiness; 5 And love that freely entered the pit of life's despair, can name our hidden darkness and suffer with us there. 6 Christ, in our darkness risen, help all who long for light to hold the hand of promise, till faith receives its sight.
