Psalm 50

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: Psalms and Hymns of Isaac Watts, The #Ps.116 (1806) Meter: Irregular First Line: The Lord, the Sovereign, sends his summons forth Lyrics: The Lord, the Sovereign, sends his summons forth, Calls the south nations and awakes the north; From east to west the sounding orders spread, Through distant worlds and regions of the dead: No more shall atheists mock his long delay; His vengeance sleeps no more: behold the day! Behold, the Judge descends, his guards are nigh; Tempest and fire attend him down the sky: Heav'n, earth, and hell, draw near; let all things come To hear his justice, and the sinner's doom: "But gather first my saints," the Judge commands, "Bring them, ye angels, from their distant lands. "Behold, my cov'nant stands for ever good, Sealed by th' eternal Sacrifice in blood, And signed with all their names; the Greek, the Jew, That paid the ancient worship or the new, There's no distinction here; come, spread their thrones, And near me seat my fav'rites and my sons. "I, their Almighty Savior and their God, I am their Judge: ye heav'ns, proclaim abroad My just eternal sentence, and declare Those awful truths that sinners dread to hear: Sinners in Zion, tremble and retire; I doom the painted hypocrite to fire. "Not for the want of goats or bullocks slain Do I condemn thee; bulls and goats are vain Without the flames of love; in vain the store Of brutal off'rings that were mine before; Mine are the tamer beasts and savage breed, Flocks, herds, and fields and forests where they feed. "If I were hungry, would I ask thee food? When did I thirst, or drink thy bullocks' blood? Can I be flattered with thy cringing bows, Thy solemn chatt'rings and fantastic vows? Are my eyes charmed thy vestments to behold, Glaring in gems, and gay in woven gold? "Unthinking wretch! how couldst thou hope to please A God, a Spirit, with such toys as these, While, with my grace and statutes on thy tongue, Thou lov'st deceit, and dost thy brother wrong? In vain to pious forms thy zeal pretends, Thieves and adulterers are thy chosen friends. "Silent I waited with long-suff'ring love, But didst thou hope that I should ne'er reprove? And cherish such an impious thought within, That God, the Righteous, would indulge thy sin? Behold my terrors now: my thunders roll, And thy own crimes affright thy guilty soul." Sinners, awake betimes; ye fools, be wise; Awake before this dreadful morning rise; Change your vain thoughts, your crooked works amend, Fly to the Savior, make the Judge your friend Lest, like a lion, his last vengeance tear Your trembling souls, and no deliv'rer near.

Faith Triumphing

Author: Toplady Hymnal: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs #CCLXXXIV (1792) Meter: Irregular First Line: A debtor to mercy alone Lyrics: 1 A debtor to mercy alone, Of covenant mercy I sing; Nor fear with thy righteousness on, My person and off'rings to bring: The terrors of law, and of God, With me can have nothing to do; My Saviour's obedience and blood Hide all my transgressions from view. 2 The work which his goodness began, The arm of his strength will complete, His promise is yea and amen, And never was forfeited yet: Things future, nor things that are now, Nor all things below, nor above, Can make him his purpose forgo, Or sever my soul from his love. 3 My name from the palms of his hands Eternity will not erase; Impressed on his heart it remains, In marks of indelible grace: Yes, I to the end shall endure, As sure as the earnest is giv'n; More happy, but not more secure, The glorifi'd spirits in heav'n. Topics: Faith, its Author, Preciousness, and Triumphs Scripture: Hebrews 11:1 Languages: English

Priest, High Priest

Author: Cennick Hymnal: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs #CCXXXV (1792) Meter: Irregular First Line: A good High Priest is come Lyrics: 1 A good High Priest is come, Supplying Aaron's place, And taking up his room, Dispensing life and grace: The law by Aaron's priesthood came, But grace and truth by Jesus' name. 2 My Lord a priest is made, As sware the mighty God, To Israel and his seed; Ordain'd to offer blood, For sinners who his mercy seek, A priest, as was Melchizedek. 3 He once temptations knew, Of ev'ry sort and kind, That he might succour shew, To ev'ry tempted mind: In ev'ry point, the Lamb was tried Like us, and then for us, he died. 4 He dies, but lives again, And by the altar stands; There shews how he was slain, Op'ning His pierced hands. Our Priest abides, and pleads the cause Of us, who have transgress'd his laws. 5 I other Priests disclaim, And laws and off'rings too, None but the bleeding Lamb The mighty work can do; He shall have all the praise, for he Hath lov'd, and liv'd, and di'd for me. Topics: Attributes, Characters, Names, and Offices of Christ, from the New Testament Scripture: Hebrews 9:11-12 Languages: English

Civilla D. Martin

1866 - 1948 Meter: Irregular Author of "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" in The Celebration Hymnal Martin, Civilla Durfee (Jordan Falls, Nova Scotia, August 21, 1866--March 9, 1948, Atlanta, Georgia). Daughter of James N. and Irene (Harding) Holden. She married Rev. John F. Geddes, Congregational minister of Coventryvilee, N.Y. at Jordan Falls Methodist Church, Shelbourne Co., Nova Scotia, on May 19, 1891. There is thus far no information about their marriage and its end. After several years of teaching school, she married Walter Stillman Martin, a Baptist minister, and traveled with him in evangelistic work. However, because of frail health, she was compelled to remain home much of the time. In 1916, they became members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). They had one son, A.G. Martin. In her writing, she used only her initials, "C.D." rather than her full name of that of her composer-husband. She is reputed to have written several hundred hymns and religious songs. Her first one, "God Will Take Care of You," written in 1904 became world-famous. Her husband wrote the music for this and many of her other hymns. "His Eye is on the Sparrow" written in 1906 and set to music by Charles H. Gabriel, has also received wide acclaim. In addition to the above, "Like As A Father," "A Welcome for Me," and "The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power" are among her better-known hymns. Her husband and collaborator, W.S. Martin (1862-1935) preceded her in death. For the last 29 years of her life, she made her home in Atlanta, Georgia, where she was a member of the First Christian Church. Her funeral was held on March 10, 1948 at Spring Hill and the interment was in the West View Cemetery in Atlanta. --Carlton C. Buck, DNAH Archives and email from Rev. Lester M. Settle (Glenholme, Nova Scotia) to Mary Louise VanDyke 18 September 2008, DNAH Archives.

Small Church Music

Meter: Irregular Editors: H.

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.
