Jehovah, Lord of Heaven and Earth, 269 Anonymous

  1. Jehovah, Lord of heav'n and earth, Thy word of truth proclaim!
    Oh, may it spread from pole to pole, Till all shall know thy name;
    Oh, may it spread from pole to pole, Till all shall know thy name.

 

  1. We long to see thy Church increase, Thine own new kingdom grow,
    That all the earth may live in peace, And heav'n be seen below;
    That all the earth may live in peace, And heav'n be seen below.

 

  1. Roll on thy work in all its pow'r! The distant nations bring!
    In thy new kingdom may they stand, And own thee God and King;
    In thy new kingdom may they stand, And own thee God and King.

 

  1. One general chorus then shall rise From men of ev'ry tongue,
    And songs of joy salute the skies, By ev'ry nation sung;
    And songs of joy salute the skies, By ev'ry nation sung.

 

 

Jesus, Lover of My Soul, 102 - Charles Wesley

  1. Jesus, lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly,
    While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high.
    Hide me, O my Savior, hide, Till the storm of life is past.
    Safe into the haven guide; Oh, receive my soul at last.

 

  1. Other refuge have I none; Hangs my helpless soul on thee.
    Leave, oh, leave me not alone; Still support and comfort me.
    All my turst on thee is stayed; All my help from thee I bring.
    Cover my defenseless head With the shadow of thy wing.

 

 

Jesus, Mighty King in Zion, 234 - John Fellows. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835

.

1. Jesus, mighty King in Zion, Thou alone our guide shalt be.

Thy commission we rely on; We will follow none but thee.

 

2. As an emblem of thy passion And thy vict'ry o'er the grave,

We, who know thy great salvation, Are baptized beneath the wave.

 

3. Fearless of the world's despising, We the ancient path pursue,

Buried with the Lord and rising To a life divinely new.

 

 

Jesus of Nazareth, Savior and King, 181 - Hugh W. Dougall

  1. Jesus of Nazareth, Savior and King! Triumphant over death, Life thou didst bring,
    Leaving thy Father's throne, On earth to live; Thy work to do alone, Thy life to give.

 

  1. While of this broken bread Humbly we eat, Our thoughts to thee are led In rev'rence sweet.
    Bruised, broken, torn for us On Calvary's hill-- Thy suff'ring borne for us Lives with us still.

 

  1. As to our lips the cup Gently we press, Our hearts are lifted up, Thy name we bless!
    Guide us where'er we go, Till in the end Life evermore we'll know Through thee, our Friend.

 

 

Jesus, Once of Humble Birth, 196 - Parley P. Pratt

  1. Jesus, once of humble birth,

Now in glory comes to earth.
Once he suffered grief and pain;

Now he comes on earth to reign.

Now he comes on earth to reign.

 

  1. Once a meek and lowly Lamb,

Now the Lord, the great I Am.
Once upon the cross he bowed;

Now his chariot is the cloud.

Now his chariot is the cloud.

 

  1. Once he groaned in blood and tears;

Now in glory he appears.
Once rejected by his own,

Now their King he shall be known.

Now their King he shall be known.

 

  1. Once forsaken, left alone,

Now exalted to a throne.
Once all things he meekly bore,

But he now will bear no more.

But he now will bear no more.

 

 

Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me, 104 - Edward Hopper

  1. Jesus, Savior, pilot me Over life's tempestuous sea;
    Unknown waves before me roll, Hiding rock and treach'rous shoal
    Chart and compass came from thee: Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

 

  1. As a mother stills her child, Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
    Boist'rous waves obey thy will When thou say'st to them,"Be still!"
    Wondrous Sov'reign of the sea, Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

 

  1. When at last I near the shore; And the fearful breakers roar
    'Twixt me and the peaceful rest, Then, while leaning on thy breast,
    May I hear thee say to me, "Fear not: I will pilot thee."

 

 

Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee, 141 - Attr. to Bernard of Clairvaux. Trans. by Edward Caswall.

  1. Jesus, the very thought of thee With sweetness fills my breast;
    But sweeter far thy face to see And in thy presence rest.

 

  1. Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, Nor can the mem'ry find
    A sweeter sound than thy blest name, O Savior of mankind!

 

  1. O hope of ev'ry contrite heart, O joy of all the meek,
    To those who fall, how kind thou art! How good to those who seek!

 

  1. Jesus, our only joy be thou, As thou our prize wilt be;
    Jesus, be thou or glory now, And thru eternity.

 

 

Joseph Smith's First Prayer, 26 - George Manwaring

  1. Oh, how lovely was the morning! Radiant beamed the sun above.
    Bees were humming, sweet birds singing, Music ringing thru the grove,
    When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love,
    When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love.

 

  1. Humbly kneeling, sweet appealing--'Twas the boy's first uttered prayer--
    When the pow'rs of sin assailing Filled his soul with deep despair;
    But undaunted, still he trusted in his Heav'nly Father's care,
    but undaunted, still he trusted in his Heav'nly Father's care.

 

  1. Suddenly a light descended, Brighter far than noonday sun,
    And a shining glorious pillar O'er him fell, around him shone,
    While appeared two heav'nly beings, God the Father and the Son,
    While appeared two heav'nly beings, God the Father and the Son.

 

  1. "Joseph, this is my Beloved; Hear him!" Oh, how sweet the word!
    Joseph's humble prayer was answered, And he listened to the Lord.
    Oh, what rapture filled his bosom, For he saw the living God;
    Oh, what rapture filled his bosom, For he saw the living God.

 

 

Joy To the World, 201 - Isaac Watts. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.

 

  1. Joy to the world, the Lord is come; Let earth receive her King!
    Let ev'ry heart prepare him room, And Saints and angels sing, And Saints and angels sing,
    And Saints, and Saints and angels sing.

 

  1. Rejoice! Rejoice when Jesus reigns, And Saints their songs employ,
    While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy,
    Repeat, Repeat the sounding joy.

 

  1. No more will sin and sorrow grow, Nor thorns infest the ground;
    He'll come and make the blessings flow Far as the curse was found, Far as the curse was found,
    Far as, far as the curse was found.

 

  1. Rejoice! Rejoice in the Most High, While Israel spreads abroad
    Like stars that glitter in the sky, And ever worship God, And ever worship God,
    And ever, and ever worship God.
