The Guest Chamber

Author: Martha E. Pettus Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Matching Instances: 1 First Line: Is it to me the Master sends Lyrics: 1 Is it to me the Master sends The message of His grace? Can He desire within my door A dwelling place? 2 Oh, if like that in Bethany My home might be so blest, As to receive the Lord Himself, The wondrous Guest, 3 How would swift love the place prepare Where He should soon abide, And every toil and every care Be glorified! 4 And when His step the threshold crossed, How sacred evermore Would be this little room of mine, This lowly door! 5 Listen, my soul! He comes indeed To be a guest of thine; Know that thy human heart may be His sacred shrine; 6 Sacred and blest forevermore, Since He will enter there; Oh, let His dwelling be prepared With faith and prayer. 7 Wouldst thou unto the Master’s will Thine own will consecrate? Look on His brethren poor and sad, Without thy gate; 8 Hear then what tender words He speaks, The Sinless, Undefiled: “Once I was poor, I dwelt on earth A little child; 9 "And every gentle ministry Of love, whate’er it be, When given to My friendless ones, Is given to Me." 10 Behold, He’s standing at the door; Hasten thy Lord to meet! Bid Him come in that thou mayst kneel Low at His feet. 11 There wilt thou learn, as Mary did, The heavenly path to choose. O Savior, enter! Let me not Thy presence lose!

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent

Meter: Appears in 4 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 O Lord, our Lord, how excellent in all the earth thy name! who hast thy glory set above the starry frame. 2 From infants' and from sucklings' mouths is strength by thee ordained, that so the avenger may be quelled, the foe restrained. 3 When I behold thy spacious heavens, the work of thine own hand, the moon and stars in order set by thy command; 4 O, what is man, that thou should'st him in kind remembrance bear? Or what the son of man, that thou for him should'st care? 5 For thou a little lower hast him than the angels made; with honour and with gory thou hast crowned his head. 6 Lord of thy works thou hast him made: all unto him must yield, all sheep and oxen, yea, and beasts which roam the field, 7 Fowl of the air, fish of the sea, all that pass through the same. O Lord, our Lord, in all the earth how great thy name! Scripture: Psalm 8 Used With Tune: ROTHLEY

The World Was Dark With Care And Woe

Author: Thomas T. Lynch Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 The world was dark with care and woe, With brawl and pleasure wild, When in the midst, His love to show, God set a child. 2 The sages frowned, their beards they shook, For pride their heart beguiled; They said, each looking on his book, "We want no child." 3 The merchants turned towards their scales, Around their wealth lay piled; Said they, "’Tis gold alone prevails; We want no child." 4 The soldiers rose in noisy sport, Disdainfully they smiled, And said, "Can babes the shield support? We want no child." 5 The merry sinners laughed or blushed, Alas, and some reviled; All cried, as to the dance they rushed, "We want no child." 6 The old, th’afflicted, and the poor, With voices harsh or mild, Said, "Hope to us returns no more; We want no child." 7 And men of grave and moral word, With consciences defiled, Said, "Let the old truth still be heard; We want no child." 8 Then said the Lord, “O world of care So blinded and beguiled, Thou must become for thy repair A holy child. 9 "And unto thee a Son is born, Thy second hope has smiled; Thou mayst, though sin and trouble worn, Be made a child."
