then let love determine our behavior, for 'tis God's command to all, 397

whatever you command, my calling here fulfilling, 615

when tempests fierce assail me, they're calm at his command., 769

Wide as the world is your command, vast as eternity your love, 455

with riches of the earth at our command, from weaponry to welcome, turn our hand., 766


so we wait to be commanded forth into your world to go., 401

unto those who still remember the commandments and obey., 458


anchored in faith, but free to do what God commands:, 698

Fill us with your compassion, Lord, our fear and pride remove, 338

for his sake behold us with compassion, and us all your children own, 444

grant them courage and compassion shown through word and deed and prayer., 642

Jesus, you are all compassion, pure, unbounded love impart!, 474

Kindle in us love's compassion so that ev'ryone may see, 401

like the pity of a father has the Lord's compassion been., 458

Not your merit brings God near, but God's great compassion, 275

Praise to the Savior for his deep compassion, 383

to us and ours, O Lord of grace, the same compassion show., 409

with new compassion, new struggle to care., 491

yet long these multitudes to view the strong compassion in your face., 581


compassionate, forgiving and ever caring Lord, 763


thou changest not, thy compassions they fail not, 460

When we lose our simple vision, complex, clashing views prevail., 715


and cheerfully stand, prepared to comply with your ev'ry command., 608

Grant, Lord, that with thy direction, "Love each other," we comply, 673


did e’er such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose so rich a crown, 80, 350


Jesus' love exceeds all comprehension, but our love to him we scarce dare mention, 346


You made no mean or cunning move, chose no unworthy compromise, 583


Show me the truth concealed within your Word, 502

No condemnation now I dread, for Christ, and all in him, is mine!, 773


cursed by strangers and condemned, abandoned by his friends, 336

whose souls, condemned and dying, were precious in his sight., 263

Give, Lord, each family lost in conflict and storm, 678

Jesus, all your labor vast, all your woe and conflict past, 352

Just as I am, though tossed about with many a conflict, many a doubt, 762

may your grace, all conflict past, bring your children home at last., 692

Now, toil and conflict o'er, go, take with saints your place, 811

faithful to his Father's will and heedless of the cost., 336

may we each, as sister, brother, follow Christ, not counting cost., 627

O use us, Lord and Master, whate'er may be the cost., 433

One in daring, one in sharing, follow Christ, not counting cost., 627

redeemed at countless cost from dark despair., 640


all our costliest treasures bring, Christ to you our heav’nly King., 190


nature's wonder, Jesus' wisdom, costly cross, grave's shattered door, 652

Shall we not yield him, in costly devotion, 317


Come as a teacher, sent from God, charged his whole counsel to declare, 432

hope and health, good will and comfort, counsel, aid, and peace we give, 688

O God, your will disclose, your counsel let me find., 615


the Wonderful, the Counselor, the God by all adored., 320


God be with you till we meet again; loving counsels guide, uphold you, 824


my richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride., 80, 350

that you should count us worthy, Lord, to share this heav'nly food., 417


On your ransomed congregation, Lord, lift up your countenance, 716

The Lord lift his countenance upon you, may where'er you go his Spirit lead you, 446

We entreat, we entreat, Lord, lift up your countenance, 528


may we each, as sister, brother, follow Christ, not counting cost., 627

One in daring, one in sharing, follow Christ, not counting cost., 627


as countless more legions in heaven above extol how his grace them attended., 518

that the bread of life is boundless though the souls it feeds are countless, 588

that they too may know his welcome and his countless blessings share., 526

The ransomed hosts in earth and heav'n through countless choirs proclaim, 364

the wayward and the lost by restless passions tossed, redeemed at countless cost from dark despair., 640

through gates of pearl streams in the countless host, 390

We are not able to record the countless favors we have known, 311

where countless pardoned sinners meet adoring at his feet., 768

which the folk of countless cultures in new words and rhythms raise., 684

with countless gifts of love, and still is ours today., 533


And by the light of that same star,three wise men came from country far., 290

Blessed be the day when I must roam far from my country, friends, and home, 794

How beautiful the country that eager hearts expect!, 814

so in this strange new country, this new year, we must go., 309

When we lift our pack and go, when we seek another country, 793


God of the countryside, dear to our Lord who died to make us one, 653
