Go to Dark Gethsemane

Author: James Montgomery Meter: Appears in 494 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Go to dark Gethsemane, You who feel the tempter's pow'r; Your Redeemer's conflict see; Watch with Him one bitter hour; Turn not from His griefs away; Learn of Jesus Christ to pray. 2 Follow to the judgment hall; View the Lord of life arraigned; O the worm-wood and the gall! O the pangs His soul sustained! Shun not suff'ring, shame, or loss; Learn of Him to bear the cross. 3 Calv'ry's mournful mountain climb There' adoring at His feet, Mark the miracle of time, God's own sacrifice complete: "It is finished!" Hear the cry; Learn of Jesus Christ to die. 4 Early hasten to the tomb Where they laid his breathless clay; All is solitude and gloom; Who hath taken Him away? Christ is ris'n! He meets our eyes: Savior, teach us so to rise. Baptist Hymnal, 1991 Topics: Jesus Christ Gethsemane; Christ Gethsemane; Christ Passion; Gethsemane

Klippa, du, som brast för mig

Author: A. M. Toplady Hymnal: Lutherförbundets Sångbok #S45 (1913) Meter: Lyrics: 1 Klippa, du, som brast för mig, Låt mig gömma mig i dig! Vattnet, blodet, hvilket går Från din stungna sidas sår, Tvage i sin himlasaft Mig från syndens skuld och kraft! 2 Med min svett och möda jag Aldrig hyller upp din lag. Om mitt hit blef aldrig matt, Om jag grät båd' dag och natt, Syndens fläckar stå dock kvar, Du, blott du, min frälsning har 3 Intet kan jag gifva dig, Till ditt kors jag sluter mig, Naken, dig om kläder ber, Hjälplös, upp till nåden ser. I din lifsvåg låt mig tvås, Herre, annars jag förgås. 4 Vid hvart flyktigt andedrag, Och när jag skall dö en dag, När till okändt land jag går, När inför din dom jag står, Klippa, du, som brast för mig, Låt mig gömma mig i dig!

O, hvad världen nu är skön!

Hymnal: Lutherförbundets Sångbok #S43 (1913) Meter: First Line: O, hvad världen nu är skön Lyrics: 1 O, hvad världen nu är skön, Klädd i sommardräkten; Känn i skog, på äng, på sjön Milda, friska fläkten, Ljufva dofter, fågelsång: Mänska, höj och du din sång! 2 Jorden, smyckad som en brud, Högt lofsjunger Herran; Jubla, lund i vårlig skrud, Ängder när och fjärran! Allt hans Ande skapar nytt, Vinterns tunga välde flytt. 3 Skulle ej min själ, min mun Honom offer bringa, Helig sång af hjärtats grund Till Guds ära klinga? Är vår jord så rik på fröjd, O, hur blir då himlens höjd? Topics: Fosterländska Sånger Languages: Swedish Tune Title: DIX

O min Frälsare, mig led

Hymnal: Lutherförbundets Sångbok #S44 (1913) Meter: Lyrics: 1 O min Frälsare, mig led Öfver lifvets bölja vred. Okänd farled för mig är, Bränningar och dolda skär. Dyre Jesus, led mig fram, För min farkost in i hamn. 2 Likt ett barn vid moders bröst Stillas hafvet vid din röst. Stormig bölja lägger sig, När hon hør ditt "Ssilla, tig." Gud allsvåldig är ditt namn; För min farkost in i hamn. 3 När jag slutar färden svår – Dödens bränning mot mig slår – Ingif då mitthjärta trøst, Låt mig høra få din röst, Där jag hvilar i din famn: "Jag skall föra dig i hamn." Topics: Bön; Prayer Languages: Swedish Tune Title: [O min Frälsare, mig led]

Henry Thomas Smart

1813 - 1879 Person Name: Henry Smart Meter: Composer of "HEATHLANDS" in The Hymnal Henry Smart (b. Marylebone, London, England, 1813; d. Hampstead, London, 1879), a capable composer of church music who wrote some very fine hymn tunes (REGENT SQUARE, 354, is the best-known). Smart gave up a career in the legal profession for one in music. Although largely self taught, he became proficient in organ playing and composition, and he was a music teacher and critic. Organist in a number of London churches, including St. Luke's, Old Street (1844-1864), and St. Pancras (1864-1869), Smart was famous for his extemporiza­tions and for his accompaniment of congregational singing. He became completely blind at the age of fifty-two, but his remarkable memory enabled him to continue playing the organ. Fascinated by organs as a youth, Smart designed organs for impor­tant places such as St. Andrew Hall in Glasgow and the Town Hall in Leeds. He composed an opera, oratorios, part-songs, some instrumental music, and many hymn tunes, as well as a large number of works for organ and choir. He edited the Choralebook (1858), the English Presbyterian Psalms and Hymns for Divine Worship (1867), and the Scottish Presbyterian Hymnal (1875). Some of his hymn tunes were first published in Hymns Ancient and Modern (1861). Bert Polman

Richard Redhead

1820 - 1901 Meter: Composer of "REDHEAD 76" in Psalter Hymnal (Gray) Richard Redhead (b. Harrow, Middlesex, England, 1820; d. Hellingley, Sussex, England, 1901) was a chorister at Magdalen College, Oxford. At age nineteen he was invited to become organist at Margaret Chapel (later All Saints Church), London. Greatly influencing the musical tradition of the church, he remained in that position for twenty-five years as organist and an excellent trainer of the boys' choirs. Redhead and the church's rector, Frederick Oakeley, were strongly committed to the Oxford Movement, which favored the introduction of Roman elements into Anglican worship. Together they produced the first Anglican plainsong psalter, Laudes Diurnae (1843). Redhead spent the latter part of his career as organist at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Paddington (1864-1894). Bert Polman

William Henry Monk

1823 - 1889 Person Name: William H. Monk Meter: Adapter of "DIX" in Psalter Hymnal (Gray) William H. Monk (b. Brompton, London, England, 1823; d. London, 1889) is best known for his music editing of Hymns Ancient and Modern (1861, 1868; 1875, and 1889 editions). He also adapted music from plainsong and added accompaniments for Introits for Use Throughout the Year, a book issued with that famous hymnal. Beginning in his teenage years, Monk held a number of musical positions. He became choirmaster at King's College in London in 1847 and was organist and choirmaster at St. Matthias, Stoke Newington, from 1852 to 1889, where he was influenced by the Oxford Movement. At St. Matthias, Monk also began daily choral services with the choir leading the congregation in music chosen according to the church year, including psalms chanted to plainsong. He composed over fifty hymn tunes and edited The Scottish Hymnal (1872 edition) and Wordsworth's Hymns for the Holy Year (1862) as well as the periodical Parish Choir (1840-1851). Bert Polman

Small Church Music

Meter: Editors: Thomas T. Lynch Description: The SmallChurchMusic site was launched in 2006, growing out of the requests from those struggling to provide suitable music for their services and meetings. Rev. Clyde McLennan was ordained in mid 1960’s and was a pastor in many small Australian country areas, and therefore was acutely aware of this music problem. Having also been trained as a Pipe Organist, recordings on site (which are a subset of the site) are all actually played by Clyde, and also include piano and piano with organ versions. All recordings are in MP3 format. Churches all around the world use the recordings, with downloads averaging over 60,000 per month. The recordings normally have an introduction, several verses and a slowdown on the last verse. Users are encouraged to use software: Audacity ( or Song Surgeon ( (see for more information) to adjust the MP3 number of verses, tempo and pitch to suit their local needs. Copyright notice: Rev. Clyde McLennan, performer in this collection, has assigned his performer rights in this collection to Non-commercial use of these recordings is permitted.
