Would you have Him bear your burden, carry all your load? Let Him have His way with thee. Chorus: His pow’r can make you what you ought to be; His blood can cleanse your heart and make you free; His love can fill your soul, and you will see ’Twas best for Him to have His way with thee. 2 Would you have Him make you free, and follow at His call? Would you know the peace that comes by giving all? Would you have Him save you, so that you can never fall? Let Him have His way with thee. [Chorus] 3 Would you in His kingdom find a place of constant rest? Would you prove Him true each providential test? Would you in His service labor always at your best? Let Him have His way with thee.

Psalm 37 Part 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 37 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 37:1-15 First Line: Why should I vex my soul, and fret Lyrics: Why should I vex my soul, and fret To see the wicked rise? Or envy sinners waxing great By violence and lies? As flowery grass, cut down at noon, Before the ev'ning fades, So shall their glories vanish soon In everlasting shades. Then let me make the Lord my trust, And practise all that's good; So shall I dwell among the just, And he'll provide me food. I to my God my ways commit, And cheerful wait his will; Thy hand, which guides my doubtful feet, Shall my desires fulfil. Mine innocence shalt thou display, And make thy judgments known, Fair as the light of dawning day, And glorious as the noon. The meek at last the earth possess, And are the heirs of heav'n; True riches, with abundant peace, To humble souls are giv'n. Rest in the Lord, and keep his way, Nor let your anger rise, Though Providence should long delay To punish haughty vice. Let sinners join to break your peace, And plot, and rage, and foam; The Lord derides them, for he sees Their day of vengeance come. They have drawn out the threat'ning sword, Have bent the murd'rous bow, To slay the men that fear the Lord, And bring the righteous low. My God shall break their bows, and burn Their persecuting darts, Shall their own swords against them turn, And pain surprise their hearts. Topics: End of the righteous and wicked; Punishment of sinners; Saints and sinner's end; Sinner and saint's portion; Portion of saints and sinners; Poor charity to them; Death of saints and sinners; Reproach removed; Prayer and faith of persecuted saints; Charity to the poor; Envy and unbelief cured; Fretfulness discouraged; Patience under persecutions; Prosperous sinners cursed; Religion in words and deeds; Saints patience and world's hatred; Sinner hatred and saint's patience; Unbelief and envy cured; World's hatred and saint's patience

Psalm 37: For evil-doers fret thou not

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 16 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 37 First Line: For evil-doers fret thou not Lyrics: 1For evil-doers fret thou not thyself unquietly; Nor do thou envy bear to those that work iniquity. 2For, even like unto the grass, soon be cut down shall they; And, like the green and tender herb, they wither shall away. 3Set thou thy trust upon the Lord, and be thou doing good; And so thou in the land shalt dwell, and verily have food. 4Delight thyself in God; he’ll give thine heart’s desire to thee. 5Thy way to God commit, him trust, it bring to pass shall he. 6And, like unto the light, he shall thy righteousness display; And he thy judgment shall bring forth like noon-tide of the day. 7Rest in the Lord, and patiently wait for him: do not fret For him who, prosp’ring in his way, success in sin doth get. 8Do thou from anger cease, and wrath see thou forsake also: Fret not thyself in any wise, that evil thou should’st do. 9For those that evil doers are shall be cut off and fall: But those that wait upon the Lord the earth inherit shall. 10For yet a little while, and then the wicked shall not be; His place thou shalt consider well, but it thou shalt not see. 11But by inheritance the earth the meek ones shall possess: They also shall delight themselves in an abundant peace. 12The wicked plots against the just, and at him whets his teeth: 13The Lord shall laugh at him, because his day he coming seeth. 14The wicked have drawn out the sword, and bent their bow, to slay The poor and needy, and to kill men of an upright way. 15But their own sword, which they have drawn, shall enter their own heart: Their bows which they have bent shall break, and into pieces part. 16A little that a just man hath is more and better far Than is the wealth of many such as lewd and wicked are. 17For sinners’ arms shall broken be; but God the just sustains. 18God knows the just man’s days, and still their heritage remains. 19They shall not be asham’d when they the evil time do see; And when the days of famine are, they satisfy’d shall be. 20But wicked men, and foes of God, as fat of lambs, decay; They shall consume, yea, into smoke they shall consume away. 21The wicked borrows, but the same again he doth not pay; Whereas the righteous mercy shews, and gives his own away. 22For such as blessed be of him the earth inherit shall; And they that cursed are of him shall be destroyed all. 23A good man’s footsteps by the Lord are ordered aright; And in the way wherein he walks he greatly doth delight. 24Although he fall, yet shall he not be cast down utterly; Because the Lord with his own hand upholds him mightily. 25I have been young, and now am old, yet have I never seen The just man left, nor that his seed for bread have beggars been. 26He’s ever merciful, and lends: his seed is bless’d therefore. 27Depart from evil, and do good, and dwell for evermore. 28For God loves judgment, and his saints leaves not in any case; They are kept ever: but cut off shall be the sinner’s race. 29The just inherit shall the land, and ever in it dwell: 30The just man’s mouth doth wisdom speak; his tongue doth judgment tell. 31In’s heart the law is of his God, his steps slide not away. 32The wicked man doth watch the just, and seeketh him to slay. 33Yet him the Lord will not forsake, nor leave him in his hands: The righteous will he not condemn, when he in judgment stands. 34Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and thee exalt shall he Th’ earth to inherit; when cut off the wicked thou shalt see. 35I saw the wicked great in pow’r, spread like a green bay-tree: 36He pass’d, yea, was not; him I sought, but found he could not be. 37Mark thou the perfect, and behold the man of uprightness; Because that surely of this man the latter end is peace. 38But those men that transgressors are shall be destroy’d together; The latter end of wicked men shall be cut off for ever. 39But the salvation of the just is from the Lord above; He in the time of their distress their stay and strength doth prove. 40The Lord shall help, and them deliver: he shall them free and save From wicked men; because in him their confidence they have.

Commit Now All Your Griefs

Author: Paul Gerhardt; John Wesley Meter: 6.6.8.6 D Appears in 233 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 37:5 Lyrics: 1 Commit thou all your griefs and ways into his hands; to his sure truth and tender care, who earth and heav'n commands. Who points the clouds their course, whom winds and seas obey, he shall direct your wand'ring feet, hHe shall prepare your way. 2 Give to the winds your fears; hope, and be undismayed; God hears your sighs and counts your tears, God shall lift up your head. Through waves and clouds and storms he gently clears your way; wait for his time, so shall the night soon end in joyous day. 3 Still heavy is your heart? Still sink your spirits down? Cast off the weight, let fear depart, and every care be gone. He everywhere has sway, and all things serve his might; his every act pure blessing is, his path unsullied light. 4 Far, far above your thought his counsel shall appear, when fully he the work has wrought that caused your needless fear. Leave to his sovereign sway to choose and to command; with wonder filled, you then hall own how wise, how strong his hand.
