Take thou our minds, dear lord -- Tarry with me, o my saviour -- Tell me not in mournful numbers -- Tell us, ye servants of the lord -- The almighty spake and Gabriel sped -- That day of wrath, that direful day -- That we may worship thee -- There is a high place -- There is a land mine eye hath seen -- There is an hour of peaceful rest -- There is no name so sweet on earth -- There's a land that is fairer than day -- They cast their nets in Galilee -- They pray the best who pray and watch -- Think not when you gather to Zion -- This flock so small -- This is my father's world -- This new day -- Thou art, o God, the god of might -- Thou art the tree of life -- Thou art the way -- though fatherland be vast -- Though I should seek -- Though my thoughts -- Thou grace divine, encircling all -- Thou long disowned, reviled, oppressed -- Thou, Lord, hast been our sure defense -- Thou lord of hosts, whose guiding hand -- Thou one in all, thou all in one -- Thrice blest the man -- Thrice welcome first and best of days -- Through the dark the dreamers came -- Through warmth and light of summer skies -- Through willing heart and helping hand -- Thus spake the saviour -- thy loving kindness, Lord, I sing -- Thy mercies, Lord, to heaven reach -- Thy praise, o God, in Zion waits -- The time is swiftly rolling on -- The time will surely come -- 'Tis midnight and the olive's brow -- 'Tis the gift to be simple -- 'Tis winter now -- Today beneath benignant skies -- To God our strength shout joyfully -- To show how humble -- To thee, eternal soul, be praise -- To thee, o God -- To thee, o God, the shepherd kings -- To thee, then, let all being bend -- To thee the tuneful anthem soars -- To thine eternal arms, o God -- Touch thou mine eyes -- Trembling before thine awful throne -- True son of God, eternal light -- Trust in me -- Turn, turn, unhappy souls, return -- The twilight shadows round me fall.
Unto Jehovah sing will I -- Unto our god most high we sing -- The voice of God is calling -- Waked by the gospel's powerful sound -- Wake, isles of the south -- Wake the song of jubilee -- Watchman, tell me -- Wayfarers in the wilderness -- We are on our journey home -- We are watching, we are waiting -- We bring no glittering treasures -- Weeping sinner, dry your tears -- Welcome, sweet rest -- Welcome, ye hopeful heirs of heaven -- We love the venerable house -- We praise thee, God, for harvests earned -- We preise thee, if one rescued soul -- We read of a people -- Were you there -- We shall overcome -- We thank thee, Lord -- We three kings of orient are -- We will not fear -- We would see Jesus -- What glorious vision -- What happiness can equil mine -- What if the saint must die -- what ship is this? -- What splendid rays -- What wondrous love is this -- When God descends with men to dwell -- When I admire the greatness -- When Israel was in Egypt's land -- When our earthly sun is setting -- When shall my pilgrimage, Jesus my saviour be ended -- When shall we all meet again? -- When sun doth rise -- When the seed of thy word is cast -- When thickly beat the storms of life -- When thy heart with joy overflowing -- When wild congusion wrecks the air -- When winds are raging -- Where are the Hebrew children? -- where cross the crowded ways of life -- Wherein consists the high estate -- Where is our holy church? -- Where nothing dwelt but beasts of prey -- Where now are the Hebrew children? -- While I am young -- While o'er our guilty land, o lord -- While o'er the deep thy servants sail -- While we lowly bow before thee -- Whilst in this world I stay -- who has our redeemer heard -- Who here can cast his eyes abroad -- Whoso would see this song o heavenly choice -- Why do we mourn departing friends? -- Why linger yet upon the strand? -- Why, Lord? -- Why should vain mortals tremble -- Wide open are thy hands -- Wilt thou not visit me? -- With all my heart, Jehovah, I'll confess -- With Christ and all his shining train -- With God and his mercy -- Within these doors assembled now -- Within the shelter of our walls -- Word of God, across the ages -- The world, the devil, and Tom Paine -- Ye realms below the skies -- Ye scattered nations -- Yoke soft and dear -- Young and radiant, he is standing -- You that have been often invited -- You will see your lord a-coming.
