from step to step on you rely, then in your service die., 399

Then let us, with the Spirit's daring, step from the past and leave behind, 784


he your stumbling steps shall stay, and shall not let you slide, 729

I know that you will strengthen my steps toward home, 791

praise for light so brightly shining on our steps from heav'n above, 310

this done, our steps are safe and sure, our hearts' desires are rendered pure, 768

till you to heaven our steps shall bring where saints and angels hail you King., 519

when human insight fails, give light; this will direct our steps aright, 734

who toil along the climbing way with painful steps and slow, 286


Still down the ages ring the prophet's stern commands, 695


while sternly for the faith they strove, they fell out with each other., 396


then who is this wise-hearted steward who faithfully carries this trust?, 656

when the anxious, incompetent steward in fear keeps back part of the price., 656


As stewards of the earth may we give thanks in one accord, 696

Make us, by faith, true stewards of your grace, 155

May we your bounties thus as stewards true receive, 657

to live as stewards of the earth, responding to God's grace., 696

we but stewards of your bounty held in solemn trust will be., 648

We but stewards of your bounty sharing all by your decree, 41

We would be stewards true holding in trust from you all that you give, 653


and by his presence still all strife., 216

Be still, my soul

the hour is hast'ning on, 757

the Lord is on your side., 757

the waves and winds still know, 757

when change and tears are past, 757

your best, your heav'nly friend, 757

your God will undertake, 757

gentle our hurts and still our cries, 497

Holy Spirit, peace divine, still this restless heart of mine, 223

My spirit's hungry craving you can forever still, 484

O let me hear you speaking in accents clear and still, 603

O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie, 282

Only be still and wait his pleasure in cheerful hope with heart content., 712

speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire, O still, small voice of calm!, 739

Take up your cross, heed not the shame, and let your foolish heart be still, 758

Through God's eternal will this child to us was given at midnight calm and still., 302

to restore the hope of healing, give us grace and make us still., 398

yet small and still upon the breeze, a wind that stirs the tops of trees, 478


where ev'ry battle flag is furled and ev'ry trumpet stilled, 691


Jesus turned to his Father in the stillness of prayer, 748

our Strength, our Song, our Stillness, our endless Rest!, 571

so we come to the stillness that refreshes the soul, 748

The world in solemn stillness lay, to hear the angels sing., 286

Through that stillness, with your Spirit come into our world of stress, 398


My soul with comfort rich he fills, and ev'ry grief he gently stills:, 537


Death's fearful sting he has come to destroy., 357

death's sting is lost forever! Alleluia!, 367

in Christ their pain is ended, in Christ, death's sting is done, 389

Lord, by your wounds on Calvary from death's dread sting your servants free, 361

today the grave has lost its sting! Alleluia!, 369

Where is death's sting? Where, grave, your victory?, 807

Where, O death, is now your sting? Alleluia!, 359

You overcame the sting of death and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers, 235


O Holy Spirit, stir us now, inspire our hearts to make this vow:, 299

Stir us to build new worlds in your name. Spirit of God, O send us your pow’r!, 489

the poor, the lonely know you as friend. Stir us to action, O holy wind., 499

to stir and comfort, shake and mend, be glad with us, and grieve., 431


a pulse of being stirred, a pulse of being stirred., 478

let our hearts and souls be stirred now to seek and love and fear you, 558


for not with sword's loud clashing, nor roll of stirring drums, 753


"As the life-charged dew of heaven births the seed and stirs the mill, 780

Give to our voice prophetic pow'r that stirs each wav'ring heart, 524

Within this space and then beyond his presence stirs us to respond, 541

yet small and still upon the breeze, a wind that stirs the tops of trees, 478


Praise the source of faith and learning who has sparked and stoked the mind, 664


as though within a heart of stone, or shriveled seed in darkness sown, 478

God is the sculptor, we the broken stone., 459

I will break their hearts of stone, give them hearts for love alone., 641

Plow up the trodden way, and clear the stone away, 501

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal; alleluia!, 359


mountains and stones look up adoring and find a voice to praise his name., 545

We are God's house of living stones, built for his own habitation, 512


"Come, Lazarus," the Savior called; and from the stony grave came forth his friend, 338

Stony the road we trod, bitter the chast'ning rod, 707


His truth at all times firmly stood, and shall from age to age endure., 539

King of kings, yet born of Mary, as of old on earth he stood, 184, 271

Parting water stood and trembled as the captives passed on through, 767

Friends have forsaken; you have stood fast, 796


Stoop to my weakness, mighty as you are, 224, 490

the living water; thirsty one, stoop down and drink and live, 606


tell how he stooped to save his lost creation, 618


stoops again in love to meet us, with his very life to feed us., 187

The everlasting Son incarnate stoops to be, 185


and there it did both stop and stay, right over the place where Jesus lay., 290


but the fruitful ears to store in his garner evermore., 450

from field to store the grain bearing your sheaves again, 452

God, whose giving knows no ending, from your rich and endless store, 652

Help us to share, consider, save, and store., 654

Jesus calls us from the worship of the vain world's golden store, 600

Take my love; my Lord, I pour at your feet its treasure store, 647


in heav'n afar we have you stored., 738

stored in each atom, gathered from the sun., 654


for all the gospel stories of Galilean days, 508


and dark is his path on the wings of the storm., 566

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

God of the earthquake God of the storm God of the trumpet blast, 26, 462

hide me, O my Savior, hide till the storm of life is past, 724

hush the storm of strife and passion, bid its cruel discords cease., 648

No storm can shake my inmost calm, while to that Rock I'm clinging., 701

The storm may roar around me, my heart may low be laid, 732

Walk with us through the storm and the calm., 489

who challenged us, when we were young to storm the citadels of wrong, 803

who walked upon the foaming deep and calm amid the storm did sleep:, 725


above the storms of passion, the murmurs of self-will., 603

all is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin, 450

Sin and hell in conflict fell with their bitter storms assail me. Jesus will not fail me., 722

Then e'en in storms I shall you know, my sure support and refuge too, 721

Those who love the Father, though the storms may gather, still have peace within, 722


I know that he is leading through all the stormy blast, 792

in ev'ry high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil., 771

our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home!, 143, 461


a story of truth and mercy, a story of peace and light, 621

All the light of sacred story gathers round its head sublime, 76

ancient story, hopes of glory. Jesus, here we meet., 542

and make thy love's bright story through me in living witness shine., 269

And repeat the gospel story ‘til all souls his name have heard, 37

and tell the old, old story of Jesus and his love., 625

bear the witness to his greatness; spread the story of his glory, 631

bringing forth the human story life and love that's true and free., 637

crown your ancient Church's story; bring its bud to glorious flower, 751

God of drama, music, dancing, God of story, sculpture, art, 132

Here might I stay and sing, no story so divine:, 482

I love to tell the story of unseen things above, 625

in all places, with all races, may that story of his glory be the hope of all the world., 631

now ev'rywhere must the story of hope be repeated, 639

once you sang creation's story, now proclaim Messiah’s birth, 293

Tell of God's wondrous story. Now he comes as an evening's soft rain, 275

The shepherds heard the story the angels sang that night, 302

Then greet the king of glory foretold in sacred story:, 344

This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long., 714

We've a story to tell to the nations, that shall turn their hearts to the right, 621

which you, O Jesus, do possess; the heav'ns proclaim your story, 471


Straight shall be what long was crooked, and the rougher places plain!, 264

Then cleansed be ev'ry life from sin; make straight the way for God within, 267


Straightway and steadfast until death you then obeyed God's call, 321


All apostles join the strain as your sacred name they hallow, 386

in the highest strain, for the Lamb once slain., 197

Repeat the solemn strain: “Worthy the Lamb once slain!”, 219

Take from our souls the strain and stress, 739

tell me your secret; help me bear the strain of toil, the fret of care., 735

The church on earth, in humble strain, exalts the Christ, our Savior, 471

We strain to glimpse your mercy seat and find you kneeling at our feet., 579

with hearts and voices swell the strain, 213, 469


In every land begin the song; to every land the strains belong, 551

prayer the sublimest strains that reach the Majesty on high., 749

that for our transgressions you were wounded shall by us in nobler strains be sounded, 77, 346


How strange is this great paradox to ponder:, 351

It was a strange and dreadful strife when life and death contended, 367

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


but not be giv'n by love within, the profit soon turns strangely thin., 590


Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger., 237

God, teach us peacemaking unto the end -- parent or child, or as stranger or friend --, 687

Hungry, thirsty -- we will feed them; greet the stranger; care and heal, 624

Jesus sought me when a stranger, wand'ring from the fold of God, 782

no more a stranger or a guest, but like a child at home., 730

when each stranger that we meet is called a neighbor, 689


closer than neighbors, open to strangers, able to clash and forgive, 514

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

In the hands outstretched to greet, through the open doors of strangers, 793

Once you were an alien people, strangers to God's heart of love, 526

Partners with the saints of old, no more strangers in the fold, 126, 525

The love that made us makes us one, and strangers now are friends., 222, 415

When a poor one who has nothing shares with strangers, 689


if I have caused some child of yours to stray, have mercy, have mercy, Lord!, 759

Lead me, guide me, along the way, for if you lead me, I cannot stray., 728

Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met thee, 707

Make darkness turn to day, wipe sorrow’s tears away, nor let me ever stray from you aside., 705

So clouded is the way, so easily we stray, but we’re guided by the right hand of God., 690


and when like wand'ring sheep we strayed, he saved us from the pow'r of death., 455


Like a shepherd good and true, he seeks the straying lamb, 336


all the needy to revive and cheer, stream forth here, stream forth here., 528

glories stream from heaven afar, heav'nly hosts sing alleluia, 297

I came to Jesus, and I drank of that life-giving stream, 606

In pastures fresh he makes me feed, beside the living stream., 730

Manifest at Jordan's stream, prophet, priest, and king supreme, 313

Pray justice may come rolling down as in a mighty stream, 696

There as the Lord, baptized and praying rose from the stream, the sinless one, 315

When ends life's transient dream, when death's cold, sullen stream rolls over me, 705


while across the shadowy night streamed a flood of glorious light, 276


Streaming forth in fresh supplies, my soul the Spirit feels, 729


and drink of those refreshing streams which you alone can give., 312

As pants for cooling streams the hart, 794

as streams through the desert refresh the ground, 616

it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain, 566

let the healing streams abound; make and keep me pure within, 724

streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise., 782

the plains their tribute bring, the streams rejoice., 452

through gates of pearl streams in the countless host, 390

we loud, like rushing streams, combine in showing forth his love divine., 479


Across the world, across the street, the victims of injustice cry, 694

in ev'ry street, in ev'ry home, in ev'ry troubled friend., 736


Let streets and homes with praises ring. Love, drowned in death, shall never die., 362

among these restless throngs abide; O tread the city's streets again, 581

Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting light, 282


and daily from your death derive the needful strength to run our race., 204

and gives us strength to challenge and to win, 459

and some may bring their greatness, and some their strength and health:, 658

And then your touch brought life and health, gave speech, and strength, and sight, 736

as strength that follows weakness, as truth instead of lies, 599

as you know our strength and weakness, so may those the church exalts, 642

As your word has promised, ever fill them with your strength and grace, 429

Creator of the world, our only strength for good., 272

for strength and healing love, O Lord, we plead., 711

For three long days the grave did its worst, until its strength by God was dispersed., 357

go in the strength of his Spirit!, 639

God, grant me strength to do with ready heart and willing, 615

God is our strength and song, and his salvation ours, 531

Grant endurance for our ventures, give us strength to serve and lead., 637

grant us visions ever growiung, breath of life, eternal strength, 132

here we offer, Lord, our praises; heart and mind and strength we bring, 819

his strength shall bear your spirit up, and brace your heart, and nerve your arm., 758

I am weak and I need your strength and pow'r, 728

in Christ's strength we have our fitness, work to do and words to say., 627

in ev'ry trial we meet, in all his strength complete, 668

In our weakness his strength will defend us, when his praise is on our tongue., 549

in strength of which we travel on to our abiding place., 411

Israel's strength and consolation, hope to all the earth impart, 262

let courage rise with danger, and with God's strength oppose., 752

life and pow'r on them bestow, them with needful strength endow, 636

live in the strength of his Spirit!, 639

Lord, if your arm support us still with its eternal strength, 106

Lord, our refuge, hope, and strength! Keep, O keep us safe from harm, 741

love you with all our heart and strength and mind?, 490

Make us in your strength victorious with our Christ, the Lord of all., 619

May your rich grace impart strength to my fainting heart, my zeal inspire, 705

my strength in helplessness, O answer me: Saranam, 756

my strength is in your might, your might alone., 421

No strength of ours can match his might! We would be lost, rejected., 788

Not in our own strength, Lord, we move; your kingdom falls not when we fall, 58

now on your church your pow'r and strength outpour, 516

O give us strength in you to fight, in you to conquer sin., 341

Our spirit's strength and stay who when all flesh is dust, 425

our Strength, our Song, our Stillness, our endless Rest!, 571

ourselves in covenant now bind with soul and strength, with heart and mind, 399

Power, riches, wisdom, and strength, and honor, blessing, and glory are his., 238

Refresh my strength for your own sake, so I may serve you when I wake., 569

Restrain me lest I harbor pride, lest I in my own strength confide, 733

So, led from strength to strength, grant us, O Lord, to see, 312

source of strength for the day's long journey, 499

Spread your love's broad banner o'er us; give us strength to serve and wait, 310

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, stand in his strength alone, 752

strength for each burden, light for each day, 796

strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, 460

strength supplying, strength supplying in the time of need, 636

Strong deliv'rer, strong deliv'rer, ever be my strength and shield, 790

strong in the strength of his Spirit!, 639

Take up your cross, then, in his strength, and calmly ev'ry danger brave:, 758

The Lord's joy be our strength and stay in our employ from day to day, 734

Then shall we go from strength to strength, from grace to greater grace, 703

though I am weak, show me anew I have my pow'r, my strength from you., 733

through ev’ry age we found you nigh, our strength and our salvation., 147

to you our youth and strength adoringly we bring:, 78, 486

until the radiant force of God fills mind and strength and breath., 801

Who like yourself my guide and strength can be?, 807

with eagerness of heart and strength of limb, 587

within this holy sacrament may we new life, new strength receive., 225

You make us rejoice in serving, giving strength where we had none, 622

you'll find him always there beside you to give you hope and strength within, 712

You alone are my strength, my shield; to you alone may my spirit yield., 28

your strength in our hearts, Lord, at the noon of the day., 802

yours the strength by which we strive, on your holy arm relying, 363

You're our strength and motivation, Christ, you send us out to serve., 622


Faith finds in Christ our ev'ry need to save or strengthen us indeed, 700

faith in his presence strengthen our believing, 626

for us he sent his Spirit here to guide, to strengthen, and to cheer., 485

I know that you will strengthen my steps toward home, 791

I'll strengthen you, help you and cause you to stand, 709

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

pour out your Spirit, strengthen our witness, 535

refresh and strengthen us anew, and bless what in your name we do., 734

restore and strengthen, soothe and bless, with your almighty breath:, 736

Strengthen according to your might, share with us the promised life., 536

Strengthen hand and heart and nerve, all your bidding to fulfill, 42

strengthen in ev'ry way my love for you!, 705

strengthen your righteousness, Savior and Friend!, 555

to move, increase, and strengthen within us at this hour., 391

Travel beside me, strengthen and guide me, Shepherd divine!, 796

when the crippled in their weakness strengthen others, 689


strengthened in might by his Spirit!, 639

give these, and then your will be done; thus strengthened with all might, 750


sharp anger to insight which strengthens the heart, 678

touch the joy whose very essence cleanses, strengthens, cancels blame., 557


come in this most solemn hour with your strength'ning gift of pow'r., 426

quick'ning, strength'ning, and absolving, setting captive sinners free, 95, 495


All who love and serve your city, all who bear its daily stress, 697

from famished souls, from sorrow's stress your heart has never known recoil., 581

Take from our souls the strain and stress, and let our ordered lives confess the beauty of thy peace., 739

Through that stillness, with your Spirit come into our world of stress, 398


his Kingdom stretch from shore to shore, till moons shall wax and wane no more., 404

Now we our vow of faith renew, stretch wide our sights to global view, 410

Stretch out your hand in blessing, in pardon and in peace., 763

stretch forth your hand of healing now, 628

Stretch forth your hand, our health restore, and make us rise to fall no more, 267


Lord of our strongest years, stretching our youthful pow'rs, 800


Palm branches strew before him! Spread garments! Shout and sing!, 344


O Savior meek, your road pursue, with palms and scattered garments strewed., 343


While with her sweetest flowers thy waiting Zion strews thy way, 269


and O your servant, Lord, prepare the strict account to give., 645


Spirit of Light, shine on our stride, show up our folly, shatter our pride, 491


above the noise of selfish strife we hear your voice, O Son of Man., 581

and rose victorious in the strife for those he came to save., 405

at the end of earthly strife raise us, Lord, to endless life: Alleluia!, 360

bid envy, strife and quarrels cease; fill the whole world with heaven’s peace., 274

Bring to our world of strife your sov'reign word of peace, 681

But we are vain and sadly proud, we sow not peace but strife, 696

by his power, ev'ry hour, will direct us and protect us in a world of sin and strife., 631

commitment free from strife, a soul unhurt by sin., 615

Convert our wills and make us whole; wean us from selfish strife, 338

Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife, 544

Go with them to face the morrow, stay with them in ev'ry strife., 429

God's eternal lovingkindness guides us through our earthly strife., 463

grant them the peace which calms all earthly strife, 427

He banishes all fear and strife, and leads them gently on to everlasting life., 593

Holy Spirit, ever striving through us in a ceaseless strife, 95, 495

hush the storm of strife and passion, bid its cruel discords cease., 648

if from the Spirit's strife I hid myself, have mercy, have mercy, Lord!, 759

in your day of loss and sorrow, in your day of helpless strife, 697

It was a strange and dreadful strife when life and death contended, 367

Let strife among us be unknown; let all contentions cease, 785

Now still he comes to give us life and by his presence still all strife., 216

One in spirit, one in life, one amid earth's frequent strife, 126, 525

Ride on! Ride on in majesty! Your last and fiercest strife is nigh., 343

Spirit, working in creation, bringing order out of strife, 223

Still he grieves and still he suffers, for our selfishness and strife., 401

The strife is o'er, the battle done, the victory of life is won, 361

Though long our ancient blindness has missed God's loving-kindness and plunged us into strife, 572

Through all the tumult and the strife, I hear that music ringing., 701

through sin's long strife, for Christ to take our place, 629

where there is strife, may we make one., 693

You, the peace that passes knowledge, dwelling in the daily strife, 576


In love and mercy guide us, and heal our strife-torn world., 142, 683


Strike from our feet the fetters that bind., 489


striking out at envy, hate, and greed, 690

The right hand of God is striking in our land, 690


Stripped of pow'r, no more it reigns, an empty form alone remains, 367


Blessed are they who with true passion strive to make the right prevail, 595

may this motto live in all God's children as we strive to follow love's direction, 397

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

that all may hear your witness and strive for heav'n above., 391

we promise peace while yet we strive to win, 766

with your grace and mercy bless all who strive for holiness., 692

yours the strength by which we strive, on your holy arm relying, 363


and souls forever striving to follow in his ways:, 658

By all your saints still striving, for all your saints at rest, 391

he, the end of all your striving, he, your Father, Lord, and King., 595

Holy Spirit, ever striving through us in a ceaseless strife, 95, 495

make the goal of all our striving not to glory, but to serve., 496

striving to show God's fellowship to all., 587

Though I may give all I possess, and striving so my love profess, 590


Drop thy still dews of quietness, till all our strivings cease., 739


a strong desiring confidence to hear your voice and live, 750

And so the yearning strong, with which the soul will long, 492

be strong and be not cheerless, and may your saints be fearless, 631

Be strong in faith and serve him against unnumbered foes, 752

Blessed are the strong but gentle, trained to serve a higher will, 595

By the hand our shepherd takes us, leads us, keeps us strong and wise., 715

by your triumph o'er the grave, meek to suffer, strong to save, 744

Eternal Father, strong to save, whose arm has bound the restless wave, 725

fondly tend and safely keep them in your mercy strong and true., 660

For her Lord comes down all glorious, the strong in grace, in truth victorious., 258

Give me your courage, Lord, to speak whenever strong oppress the weak., 150, 686

God is my strong salvation, no enemy I fear, 769

His promise keeps us strong and sure, 761

I bind unto myself the name, the strong name of the Trinity, 237

imprison me within your arms, and strong shall be my hand., 604

In work that keeps faith sweet and strong, in trust that triumphs over wrong, 735

Little ones to him belong; they are weak but he is strong, 726

Lord, make us strong to live your gospel's fulness, 629

make them strong and gentle, kind in all I do, 578

open our hearts, convert our lives; mold us strong, sound, 497

May I run the race before me, strong and brave to face the foe, 585

May that love, so strong and tender, bind us fast to him alone, 53

Name him, Christians, name him -- strong your love as death --, 480

No one who is strong and whole needs a doctor for relief, 416

Simple innocence, most holy, forthright, strong, profoundly wise, 715

Spirit of God, your love makes us strong., 489

Strong deliv'rer, strong deliv'rer, ever be my strength and shield, 790

strong in faith and swift to answer each command your master sends, 526

strong in the strength of his Spirit!, 639

that though the wrong is often strong, God is the ruler yet., 456

that whole and sick, and weak and strong, may praise you evermore., 736

the pilgrimage our parents made to keep our people strong --, 395

through days of preparation your grace has made us strong, 753

to help the poor and needy, and bid the weak be strong, 263

Who are these in bright array; thousand times ten thousand strong, 88

Who trusts in God, a strong abode in heav’n and earth possesses, 121

whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe:, 802

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

Your hands, O Lord, in days of old were strong to heal and save, 736


Use us as a means of blessing: make us stronger, give us faith., 398


Lord of our strongest years, stretching our youthful pow'rs, 800


And did not Jesus sing a psalm that night when utmost evil strove against the Light?, 532

while sternly for the faith they strove, they fell out with each other., 396
