A world in need now summons us to labor, love, and give, 650

Bless, Lord, the labor we bring to serve you, 156

Forth on your errands send us To labor for your sake., 634

In the just reward of labor, God's will is done., 449

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

Lord, strengthen all who labor that all may find release, 683

Now direct our daily labor, lest we strive for self alone, 652

Rest from your labor, rest, soul of the just, set free, 811

should success your labor crown, give the praise to him alone., 444

The pains of death are past; labor and sorrow cease, 811

thus shall we be truly blessed both in labor and in rest., 447

with these fruits of time and labor, with these gifts that are your own:, 819

you will find there my nets and labor., 613

Jesus' redeeming labors are done. Even the battle with sin is won., 357

through my labors to give others rest, 613

What godlessness destroys faith labors to restore, 698

God! when human bonds are broken and we lack the love or skill, 398

my Shepherd is beside me, and nothing can I lack., 732

the blinding bomb, the simple lack of bread, 766


for no servant of our King ever lacked for anything., 636


it lacks the needed fire to glow, it lacks the breeze to nerve, 604


Come, you weary, heavy laden, lost and ruined by the fall, 765


as you for us were laid low in the dust of death., 488

Early hasten to the tomb, where they laid his breathless clay, 349

God who laid the earth's foundation, God who spread the heav'ns above, 463

is laid for your faith in his excellent word!, 709

For our transgressions you were wounded; our sins, O Lord, on you were laid, 340

When the sacred vow is made, when the hands are on them laid, 426

laid down

in awe and wonder to recall his life laid down for me., 222, 415

your life laid down, our life restored: “Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!”, 212

I am Jesus' little lamb; ever glad at heart I am, 723

Instead of the thorn tree the fir tree shall grow; the wolfe shall lie down with the lamb., 682

till you return, when we shall eat the marriage supper of the Lamb., 355

to God and to the Lamb I will sing!, 328

Unto the Lamb that was slain, and has redeemed us out of all nations of the earth, 252

Much forgiven, may I learn love for hatred to return, 779

Now let us learn of Christ: he speaks, and we shall find he lightens our dark mind, 668

Shun not suff'ring, shame or loss; learn of him to bear the cross, 349

we have no wealth or learning -- what shall we children bring?, 658


God reminds us every sunrise that the world is ours on lease --, 140

Though what's ahead is mystery, and life itself is ours on lease, 598

we lay them on your promise and leave them there., 571

worthily let me receive you and, so favored, never leave you, 588


Called by Christ to be earth's leaven, called by Christ to shed God's light, 627

the blade, the stem, the fruit, the leaves., 501

the tree of life and healing has leaves of richest green., 814

The turning autumn leaves, the fruit so full and free, 466

Hast thou my sins forgiven? Then, leaving things behind, 795

Lord, obediently we go, gladly leaving all below, 789

Lord, who leaving home and kindred, followed still as duty led, 692

turned from home and work and fam'ly, leaving all for his dear sake., 600


called a people in Christ Jesus, led them on through joy and woe., 637

Christ, who on the cross forsaken, like a lamb to slaughter led, 699

Come, Christians, follow where our Savior led, 623

from their bright baptismal day you have led them on their way., 426

Lord, who leaving home and kindred, followed still as duty led, 692

Should not I for gladness leap, led by Jesus as his sheep?, 662, 663

You had a palace in the sky; you left it there for such as I, 307


in foolishness have squandered your legacy of grace., 763

our mothers and our fathers, whose legacy we trace., 391


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

God reveals his presence, whom th'angelic legions serve with awe in heav'nly regions., 554

the legions of angels exalt your great name, your glory and might are transcendent, 471

The powers of death have done their worst, but Christ their legions has dispersed:, 361

where the angel legions circle 'round your throne., 778


dawn on our darkness and lend us your aid., 317

he to our songs of praise and prayer will lend a gracious ear., 821

Lamb of God unspotted, to our prayers, O lend an ear., 203

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, while we raise our hearts in love., 288


but the joy of his inspiring, lending to his voice an ear, 717


mystic spirit moving, flowing, filling height and depth and length., 132


Lord, when the shadows lengthen and night has come, 791

Once more the shadows lengthen, the daylight dies, 571
