    Hi folks

    I am working an update of our hymnal, and trying to properly attribute the hymns to the writers of their lyrics. The following list of first lines are hymns of concern.

    66. Lost In the Ruins of The Fall
    85. Didst thou, dear Jesus, suffer shame
    95. Did Christ the Great Example Lead
    96. Give me Thy Spirit, O My God
    100. Ye Messengers of Christ
    134 Go on, Ye Pilgrims, While Below
    138 Lord, Grant A Smile Before We Part ---Herbert
    140. Lord, Before We Leave Thy Temple
    176 An Alien from God, and a Stranger to Grace
    181 How Shall I My Savior Set Forth? _______ Maxwell
    195 O Happy time, long waited for,
    197 If God is Mine, Then Present Things (Rippon’s Collection)
    208 The angels that watched round the tomb
    218 You may sing of the beauties of mountain and dale
    225 Mixtures of joy and sorrow I daily do pass through
    232 Salvation! O Mysterious Plan
    234. O Happy day, when saints shall meet,
    235 Brethren, I bid you all farewell
    245 A Child of Jehovah, A subject of grace
    248 I Saw The Jewish Temple Purged
    251 O Could I find, from day to day
    254 Jesus Is All I Wish or Want
    259 Assist thy servant Lord
    274 I Have Sought Round This Verdant Earth For Unfading Joy
    276 What This That Steals, That Steals Upon My Frame
    278 Dear Is the Spot Where Christians Sleep
    298 Dearest Savior, help thy servant
    301 Long Have I Tried Terrestrial Joys
    302 Hail! Ye Foll'wers of the Lamb. ________ Benedict
    303 What a Mercy of Mercies Is This
    309 Tis Hard, When We Are Sick and Poor
    312 In Sharon’s lovely Rose
    314 There is a place of hallowed peace
    315 I Love thee my Saviour, I love thee my Lord
    318 Eternal Spirit, Heav'nly Dove
    319 Amazing Grace! And Shall I Still
    320 Apostles Trod This Holy Ground

    Full text of these hymns as we use them may be found here: Sovreign Grace Hymns

    Any help in figureing these out would be appreciated. I have already run all of them through a Google and a dogpile search and came up blank.

    Warm regards
    Jeff Weaver

    Many thanks.

    Hope all is well in Okie land. I've been spending a lot of time of late in Hokie land. (If you don't get it, dont worry its a Virginia thing.)

    They let you in without a passport?

    I thought the only visitors to Hokieland were allowed from D.C. along the Robert Byrd Memorial Expressway and One-Way Gravy Train. My mistake.
