This page contains the words for the hymns for the Wednesday Testimony Meeting on September 28, 2022.

Hymn 163

Mary A. Livermore (Adapted), words
Ralph Harrison, music


Jesus, what precept is like thine:
Forgive, as ye would be forgiven;
If heeded, O what power divine
Would then transform our earth to heaven.


So from our hearts must ever flow
A love that will all wrong outweigh;
Our lips must only blessings know,
And wrath and sin shall die away.


For it is Mind’s most holy plan
To bring the wanderer back by love;
Then let us win our brother man,
And glorify our God above.

Hymn 423

James J. Rome, words
Edward Dearle, music


Give me, O Lord, an understanding heart,
That I may learn to know myself in Thee,
To spurn the wrong and choose the better part
And thus from sinful bondage be set free.


Give me, O Lord, a meek and contrite heart,
That I may learn to quell all selfish pride,
Bowing before Thee, see Thee as Thou art
And ’neath Thy sheltering presence safely hide.


Give me, O Lord, a gentle, loving heart,
That I may learn to be more tender, kind,
And with Thy healing touch, each wound and smart
With Christly bands of Love and Truth to bind.

 


Hymn 561


Para. Matthew 6:9-13, Richard D. Row, alt., words
Jean Sibelius; arr. Richard D. Row, alt., music


Our heavenly Father-Mother Love aiding,
We worship You, We praise Your holy name,
Teach us Your children evermore to love You;
Your will be done in earth as heaven today.
Teach us Your children evermore to love You;
Your will be done in earth as heaven today.


O give us grace to meet the coming morrow;
Forgive our debts as others we forgive.
You never lead Your children to temptation.
Deliver us from evil and from sin.
Yours is the kingdom, Yours the power and glory,
World without end, forevermore, Amen.
