    the pastor at the church i attended sunday made a reference to a hymn that i haven't heard sung since i started attending baptist churches. it made me think... there are some great hymns that i don't hear anymore. what are some hymns that you like that you don't hear anymore (or would like to hear in church more)?

    here is my short list (that i jotted down on the bulletin sunday):

    In Emmanuel's Land aka The Sands of Time Are Sinking - Anne Cousin
    At The Cross aka ALAS! AND DID MY SAVIOR BLEED? - Isaac Watts
    Hallelujah, What a Savior - Philip P. Bliss

    All three mentioned above are sung at our chapel (so called Plymouth Brethren) regularly when we remember the Lord by Lord's Supper every week.
    We have separate Hymn book for the worship service and for the sermon service.

    I am not sure you have these too:

    Hail, thou once despised Jesus, thou still rejected King (John Bakewell)

    Inside the Veil (Elizabeth Dark)

    Anne Ross Cousin wrote another song:

    O Christ, What Burden Bowed Thy Head!
    Our load was laid upon thee;
    Thou stoodest in the sinner's stead to bear all ill for me. A victim led, Thy blood was shed; now there is no load for me.

    (music by Sankey)

    She must be a good believer!

    That's it! I stopped hearing these great hymns when i stopped attending the "so called Plymouth Brethren" church!...long story.

    is the separate hymn book a thinner black one called 'in remebrance of Him' (or something like that)?

    Rich! you are right!
    There are 2 kinds of Hymn book for Worship Service in addition to Hymn of Praise and Truth.
    One is Believers Hymn Book and the other is Hymns of Worship and Remembrance.
    Both are more less the same but Believers Hymn Book has more.

    I think the book was published in Topeka, Kansas.

    Richard, I have regularly heard "At The Cross" and "Hallelujah, What a Savior" at Baptist churches around here throughout my lifetime, though of course one can be more popular at one place than others. I am not familiar with the "The Sands of Time Are Sinking" song.

    Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
    Forgive our foolish ways;
    Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
    In purer lives Thy service find,
    In deeper reverence, praise.

    In simple trust like theirs who heard,
    Beside the Syrian sea,
    The gracious calling of the Lord,
    Let us, like them, without a word,
    Rise up and follow Thee.

    O Sabbath rest by Galilee,
    O calm of hills above,
    Where Jesus knelt to share with Thee
    The silence of eternity,
    Interpreted by love!

    With that deep hush subduing all
    Our words and works that drown
    The tender whisper of Thy call,
    As noiseless let Thy blessing fall
    As fell Thy manna down.

    Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
    Till all our strivings cease;
    Take from our souls the strain and stress,
    And let our ordered lives confess
    The beauty of Thy peace.

    Breathe through the heats of our desire
    Thy coolness and Thy balm;
    Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
    Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
    O still, small voice of calm.

    Every church I know has their favorite songs that they always sing, and other songs that almost never get sung. Then you go to another church and they sing songs that you never heard at the first place.

    Ones I liked but don't hear where I am now.....

    Ivory Palaces
    When the Storm Passes By
    The Old Rugged Cross (sometimes we sing this, but not much)
    In the Garden

    Richard, thanks for the "In Emmanuel's Land" link. The tune sounds familiar, but I've never heard those words used, or noticed them in any book I have.

    If I have to choose only five songs, then I would not hesitate to choose Amazing Love first, by Charles Wesley, different from Amazing Grace.

    And can it be that I should gain an interest in the Savior's blood?
    Died hHe for me, who caused His pain? For me, who Him to death pursued?

    Amazing love! how can it be that Thou, my God shouldst die for me? Amazing love!

    How can it be that thou my God should die for me?

    written by Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
    Music by Thomas Campbell (1777-1844)

    I was unable to listen to the tune from the link you gave, but listened to it here:

    http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/s/a/sandtime.htm

    and here:

    http://www.oremus.org/hymnal/t/t320.html

    Is that the tune with which you're familiar? It appears to be by E. F. Rimbault, who also composed the common "O Happy Day" tune.

    rlvaughn, thank you very much, I enjoyed it because in the previous address I could not hear the songs, but I heard it thru that address.

    BTW could anyone find the address for Amazing Love (And can it be...)? I wish I could.

    Another song I enjoyed and want to introduce is this:

    None but Christ can Satisfy!

    1.O Christ, in Thee my soul hath found, and found in Thee alone, The peace, the joy I sought so long, the bliss till now unknown.

    (Refrain) Now none but Christ can satisfy, None other name for me; There's love, and life and lasting joy, Lord Jesus, found in Thee.

    2. I sighed for rest and happiness, I yearned for them, not Thee; But while I passed my Savior by, His love laid hold on me.

    3. I tried the broken cisterns, Lord, But ah! the waters failed! E'en as I stooped to drink they'd fled and mocked me as I wailed.

    4. The pleasures lost I sadly mourned, but never wept for Thee, till grace the sightless eyes received Thy loveliness to see.

    (Refrain) Now none but Christ can satisfy, None other name for me; There's love, and life and lasting joy, Lord Jesus, found in Thee.


    If you read above, you will really enjoy the meanings. I was really like that!


    Writer seems to be unknown, it is stated as R.E 19 century
    Music by J. McGranahan 1840-1907

    This song may be known very well to you because it is in the regular service Hymn book.
    It will be nice to hear this song on the internet.

    A song I almost never hear, but consider the finest of C. Wesley's hymns, is Jesus Lover of My Soul. I never learned to play the piano but managed to learn just enough to play Martyn, although now I much prefer Hollingside, though I don't think any of the standard arrangements really does justice to the text.

    Oddly enough, we never sang this in my childhood church, even though it was in the hymnal. I was introduced to it while singing in the choir at the Falls Creek Baptist Assembly and have never forgotten it.

    Other refuge have I none,
    hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
    Leave, ah! leave me not alone,
    still support and comfort me.
    All my trust on Thee is stayed,
    all my help from Thee I bring;
    Cover my defenseless head
    with the shadow of Thy wing.

    Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
    grace to cover all my sin;
    Let the healing streams abound;
    make and keep me pure within.
    Thou of life the fountain art,
    freely let me take of Thee;
    Spring Thou up within my heart;
    rise to all eternity.
