Lord, Teach Us How to Pray Aright

Author: James Montgomery Meter: Appears in 217 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 18:27 Lyrics: 1 Lord, teach us how to pray aright with reverence and with fear; though weak and sinful in your sight, we may, we must draw near. 2 We perish if we cease from prayer; O grant us power to pray; and when to meet you we prepare, Lord, meet us by the way. 3 O God of love, before your face we come with contrite heart to ask from you these gifts of grace-- truth in the inward part: 4 Faith in the only sacrifice that can for sin atone; to found our hopes, to fix our eyes, on Christ, and Christ alone: 5 Patience to watch, and weep and wait, whatever you may send; courage that will not hesitate to trust you to the end. 6 Give these, and then your will be done; thus, strengthened with all might, we through your Spirit and your Son, shall pray, and pray aright.

A hymn for a fast day

Meter: Appears in 73 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 18:23-33 First Line: When Abraham, full of sacred awe Lyrics: 1 When Abram, full of sacred awe, Before Jehovah stood, And, with an humble fervent prayer, For guilty Sodom sued; 2 With what success, what wondrous grace, Was his petitions crown'd! The Lord would spare, if in the place Ten righteous men were found. 3 And could a single, holy soul So rich a boon obtain? Good God, and shall a nation cry, And plead with thee in vain? 4 Britain, all guilty as she is, Her numerous saints can boast, And now their fervent prayers ascend, And can those prayers be lost? 5 Are not the righteous dear to thee, Now as in ancient times? Or does this sinful land exceed Gomorrah in its crimes? 6 Still are we thine, we bear thy name, Here yet is thine abode; Long has thy presence bless'd our land, Forsake us not, O God.

Eternal Power, whose high abode

Author: Watts Meter: Appears in 225 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 18:27 Lyrics: 1 Eternal Power, whose high abode Becomes the grandeur of a God: In vain the loftiest angel tries To reach thy height with wondering eyes. 2 Thy dazzling glories while he sings, He hides his face beneath his wings; Seraphs that most with ardor glow, Still at an humble distance bow. 3 Earth from afar has heard thy fame, And worms have learned to lisp thy name; But oh, the glories of thy mind Leave all our soaring thoughts behind. 4 God is in heaven and man below; Soft be our strains, our words be few; A sacred reverence checks our songs, And praise sits trembling on our tongues. Topics: General Praise; God Exalted Above all Praise

Whate'er My God Ordains Is Right

Author: Samuel Rodigast, 1649-1708; Catherine Winkworth Meter: Appears in 71 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 18:25 Lyrics: 1 Whate'er my God ordains is right: his holy will abideth; I will be still whate'er he doth, and follow where he guideth. He is my God: though dark my road, he holds me that I shall not fall: wherefore to him I leave it all. 2 Whate'er my God ordains is right: he never will deceive me; he leads me by the proper path; I know he will not leave me. I take, content, what he hath sent; his hand can turn my griefs away, and patiently I wait his day. 3 Whate'er my God ordains is right: though now this cup, in drinking, may bitter seem to my faint heart, I take it, all unshrinking. My God is true; each morn anew sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart, and pain and sorrow shall depart. 4 Whate'er my God ordains is right: here shall my stand be taken; though sorrow, need, or death be mine, yet am I not forsaken. My Father's care is round me there; he holds me that I shall not fall: and so to him I leave it all.

Author: William Cowper Appears in 1,099 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 18:25 First Line: God moves in a mysterious way Lyrics: 1 God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. 2 Deep in unfathomable mines Of never-failing skill, He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sovereign will. 3 Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take! The clouds ye so much dread, Are big with mercy, and will break In blessings on your head. 4 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. 5 His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flower. 6 Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan his work in vain; God is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain. Topics: Dependence On Providence; God: The Father Used With Tune: LONDON NEW
