I love Olney Hymns for Cowper's hymns especially. Because of his illness, he contributed only 67 of the 379 hymns, but his verses include some of the finest poetry found in hymns. Read full review

Page 146 - We a little longer wait ; But how little, none can know. 2 As the winged arrow flies Speedily the mark to find ; As the lightning from the skies Darts, and leaves no trace behind ; Swiftly thus our fleeting days Bear us down life's rapid stream ; Upward, Lord, our spirits raise ; All below is but a dream. '*' 3 Thanks for mercies past receive, Pardon of our sins renew ; Teach us henceforth how to live, With eternity in view.
Page 261 - Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread, Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head.
Page 188 - JESUS, where'er thy people meet, There they behold thy mercy-seat ; Where'er they seek thee thou art found, And every place is hallowed ground. 2 For thou, within no walls confined, Inhabitest the humble mind ; Such ever bring thee where they come, And going, take thee to their home.
Page 32 - While I am a pilgrim here, Let Thy love my spirit cheer, As my guide, my guard, my friend, Lead me to my journey's end.
Page 308 - As a little child relies On a care beyond his own ; Knows he's neither strong nor wise, Fears to stir a step alone ; Let me thus with Thee abide, As my FATHER, Guard, and Guide.
Page 55 - Oh, for grace our hearts to soften! Teach us, Lord, at length to love; We, alas! forget too often What a Friend we have above: But when home our souls are brought, We will love Thee as we ought.
Page 80 - Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood Shall never lose its power, Till all the ransomed Church of God Be saved, to sin no more.
Page 282 - BEGONE, unbelief, My Saviour is near, And for my relief, Will surely appear : By prayer let me wrestle, And he will perform : With Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm.
Page 1 - Oh for a closer walk with God! A calm and heavenly frame; A light to shine upon the road That leads me to the Lamb!
Page 183 - SAFELY through another week God has brought us on our way ; Let us now a blessing seek, Waiting in his courts to-day, — Day of all the week the best, Emblem of eternal rest.
