O Thou, my Judge and King -
My broken heart, my voiceless prayer,
My poverty, and blind despair,
To Thee, O Christ, I bring.

O Thou, my Judge and King -
My treason to Thy love most sweet,
My pride that pierced Thy weary feet,
To Thee, O Christ, I bring.

O Thou, my Judge and King -
My tearful hope, my faith's distress,
For Thee to pardon and to bless,
To Thee, O Christ, I bring.

O Thou, my Judge and King -
With no excuse, for Thou art just,
My sins, that set me in the dust,
To Thee, O Christ, I bring.

O Thou, my Judge and King,
My soul from depth of my disgrace,
To seek for mercy at Thy face,
To Thee, O Christ, I bring.

Lauchlan MacLean Watt, 1867-

Tune -Helsingfors, Hugo Nyberg, 1873-

I tried to find this online to give a link to the tune but could only find a foreign language page, (Finnish? as the tune name is the old name for Helsinki), so it appears this lovely old hymn is almost forgotten. The author is still known for a Palm Sunday prayer that I will save up for then.
I found it in The Church Hymnary -Scottish and Presbyterian Church, revised edition 1933.
Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.

I know not why God’s wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy,* Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own.

Refrain

But I know Whom I have believèd,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against that day
.

I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word
Wrought peace within my heart.

Refrain

I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing us of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.

Refrain

I know not what of good or ill
May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days,
Before His face I see.

Refrain

I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I walk the vale with Him,
Or meet Him in the air.

Refrain

*we used to sing 'as I am,' next, In mom and dad's church which used Sacred Songs and Solos).
I don’t want to be known for the things I’m against, but for the things I am for... but....A person who loves flowers will hate weeds

I love this hymn and this verse, another lovely hymn

How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocing voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that helf Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I knoww that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast inJesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

COMPOSER: Clement C. Scholefield
TUNE: St Clement (Same tune as The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, Is Ended)

1 Lord, breathe Thy breath of life upon me,
I’m as a bone disjoined and dry;
O may Thou quicken and restore me
And with Thy Body unify.
2 Lord, breathe Thy breath of life upon me,
My spirit is so bound and slow;
O break my shackles and release me,
To mingle in Thy Body’s flow.
3 Lord, breathe Thy breath of life upon me,
My burdened spirit cannot rise;
May Thou encourage and revive me
To share Thy Body’s full supplies.
4 Lord, breathe Thy breath of life upon me,
My barren spirit has no joy;
O may Thou satisfy and bless me,
Thy Body’s riches to enjoy.
5 Lord, breathe Thy breath of life upon me,
To me a true dependence give;
Deal with my death and isolation,
That in Thy Body I may live.
Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.

Ed­ward H. Bick­er­steth, Jr., 1875.

Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.

Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to Heaven’s perfect peace.

After one of Bick­er­steth’s sis­ters point­ed out that there is no­thing spe­ci­fic in the hymn about phy­si­cal suf­fer­ing. “That is soon rem­e­died,” he re­plied. He took up an en­ve­lope and wrote the fol­low­ing verse (ap­par­ent­ly ne­ver pub­lished) on the the back…

Peace, perfect peace, ’mid suffering’s sharpest throes?
The sympathy of Jesus breathes repose.

71 Is it nothing to you—all you who pass by, Geoffrey Bingham (from a pdf of 380 hymns, some original and new http://www.newcreation.org.au/music/378/pdf/words.pdf ) . The music is available elsewhere on the site and it is one of my favourite hymns.

1. Is it nothing to you—all you who pass by,
Is it nothing to you I am God?
Is it nothing to you I am Man among men,
Who open the tide of My blood?
Is it nothing to you I created the worlds,
Breathed the spirit of life into clay?
Set the oceans apart and made the dry land,
Created the night and the day?
Created the night and the day?
2. Is it nothing to you that My Father and I
Were one in our counsel as God,
And planned this sad day in the face of your sin,
When all you deserved was His Rod?
Is it nothing to you, as now you pass by,
That I am the curse of your guilt,
The sin of your souls, and the filth of your mind,
For which My heart’s blood is now spilt?
For which My heart’s blood is now spilt?
3. Is it nothing to you that I bear all the wrath
Of the God who is holy and pure
On sin that defiles, on sin that destroys,
That its judgement is what I endure?
Is it nothing to you that His love is in Me,
That this pain is the proof of My love,
That I bear in My heart the hate of your mind,
To bring you to Father above?
To bring you to Father above?
4. Do you see in My wounds the wounds of your heart,
In My eyes the sorrows of sin,
The grief of your evil, the balm for your shame,
The healing of all that’s within?
Will you pass by this Cross, cry ‘Cursèd of God!’
Ignore all the mercy of Love,
Ignore too, His wrath that in mercy is poured
Through the tide of My very heart’s blood?
Through the tide of My very heart’s blood?
5. Oh! Stay at this Cross, gaze fully thereon,
See all that is yours to receive,
Cry, ‘Dear Lamb of God, I give all I am,
Now Saviour, I fully believe.’
Is it nothing to you—you others who pass,
Whilst I hang for your sin and your guilt?
Is it nothing to you I am Man amongst men,
Whose blood for your cleansing is spilt?
Whose blood for your cleansing is spilt?
Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.

1. One day we’ll see Him face to face,
And then our hearts will beat as one,
That day we’ll know the glory of His grace,
As we on earth have never known.

2. Sometimes we are surprised by joy,
Sometimes a bliss unbidden comes,
And in that moment of enriching love
Come intimations of our home.

3. Our hearts are gladdened in this world,
When grace gives sudden sights of love,
But oh! how richer when our hearts in hope
Reach out to fuller bliss above.

4. ’Tis then the sights of heaven abound,
And flood our tired hearts of pain,
The tears of wonder flow in ecstasy,
And we are fully home again.

5. The years of sorrow and of strife,
The sin that brought a holy shame,
The guilt our hearts could never wholly hide
Will never visit us again.

6. Dear Lover, Saviour, Jesus Christ,
Our present life is hid in Thee,
But oh! the wonder when we are unveiled
In glory of our liberty.

7. Till then we live in present hope,
In patience of the coming sight,
And those who share with You Your glory now,
We then will meet with great delight.

8. Delight and bliss and joy and love,
As now our hearts cannot contain,
Will flood us as we see Him face to face
And we are wholly one again.

Geoffrey Bingham 1986
New Creation Hymn Book 183
