Brown Meter: Appears in 183 hymnals Scripture: Lamentations 1:4 Lyrics: 1 O Lord, thy work revive, In Zion's gloomy hour, And let our dying graces live By thy restoring power. 2 Oh, let thy chosen few Awake to earnest prayer; Their covenant again renew, And walk in filial fear. 3 Thy spirit then will speak Through lips of humble clay, Till hearts of adamant shall break-- Til rebels shall obey. 4 Now lend thy gracious ear; Now listen to our cry: Oh, come, and bring salvation near; Our souls on thee rely.

My Song Is Love Unknown

Author: Samuel Crossman (1624?-1683) Meter: Appears in 116 hymnals Scripture: Lamentations 1:1-6 Lyrics: 1 My song is love unknown, my Savior’s love to me, love to the loveless shown that they might lovely be. O who am I, that for my sake my Lord should take frail flesh, and die? 2 He came from his blest throne salvation to bestow, but all made strange, and none the longed-for Christ would know; but O my friend, my friend indeed, who at my need his life did spend. 3 Sometimes they strew his way, and his sweet praises sing, resounding all the day hosannas to their King. Then “Crucify!” is all their breath, and for his death they thirst and cry. 4 Why, what has my Lord done? What makes this rage and spite? He made the lame to run, he gave the blind their sight. Sweet injuries! Yet they at these themselves displease, and 'gainst him rise. 5 They rise, and needs will have my dear Lord made away; a murderer they save, the Prince of Life they slay. Yet cheerful he to suffering goes, that he his foes from thence might free. 6 Here might I stay and sing, no story so divine; never was love, dear King, never was grief like thine! This is my friend, in whose sweet praise I all my days could gladly spend. Topics: Holy Week (Good Friday) Used With Tune: LOVE UNKNOWN

Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945); Alan Gaunt (1935-) Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: Lamentations 1:1-6 Lyrics: 1 People draw near to God in their distress, pleading for help and begging peace and bread, rescue from guilt and sickness, nearly dead. Christian or not, all come in helplessness. 2 People draw near when they see God's distress: find God rejected, homeless, without bread, burdened with sin and weakness, nearly dead. Christians reach out to meet God's wretchedness. 3 And God draws near to people in distress, feeding their souls and bodies with his bread; Christian or not, for both he's hanging dead, forgiving, from the cross, their wickedness.
