we feebly struggle, they in glory shine, 390

with new compassion, new struggle to care., 491


It is enough: earth's struggles soon shall cease, 710

teach me the struggles of the soul to bear, 490


Savior, when your love shall call us from our struggling pilgrim way, 559


Renew this world you made, our study, work and rest., 674

to study that your laws may be inscribed upon our hearts., 666


So when I stumble, set me right; command my life as you require, 583


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

of all the stumbling turns we take; and loves us for his mercy’s sake., 718


By your reconciling love ev'ry stumbling-block remove, 672


Send forth your sturdy hymns of old, the psalms of ancient days., 786


for God is love transcending style and place, 459


His grace subdues the pow'r of sin; he sets the pris'ner free, 548

His might is doomed to fail; God’s judgment must prevail! One little word subdues him., 788


True God, he first from death has burst forth into life, all subduing., 368


and to whom are subjected the angels, and pow’rs, and dominions, 252


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

Christ by his own example sealed, the Lord of love, in love sublime., 339

Crown him the Lord of years, the risen Lord sublime, 405

The mightiest mortals, the angels sublime, acknowledge their deep obligation, 393


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


Perfect submission, all is at rest, I in my Savior am happy and blessed, 714

Perfect submission, perfect delight, visions of rapture now burst on my sight., 714


O Savior, whose almighty word the winds and waves submissive heard, 725


He sits at God's right hand till all his foes submit, 372


this we subscribe with heart and hand, resolved through grace thereby to stand., 479


When I tread the verge of Jordan, bid my anxious fears subside, 790


joy in our hearts is abiding, suff'ring and pain are subsiding., 316


the evidence of unseen joys, the substance of our rest., 703


Christians, dismiss your fear; let hope and joy succeed, 91, 356


and bless the work I've wrought, for you must give success., 615

courage that perseveres when there is small success:, 800

our prayer attend. Come and your people bless and give your word success, 555

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


Jesus shall reign where'er the sun does its successive journeys run, 404


suddenly return, and never, never more your temple leave., 218, 474

when suddenly a voice divine rang through the silence of the shrine., 609


Savior, for our pardon sue when our sins your pangs renew, 352


All for love and truth who suffer, in your God rejoice and sing, 595

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

He comes with rescue speedy to those who suffer wrong, 263

lift high his royal banner, it must not suffer loss., 752

My Lord, what you did suffer was all for sinners' gain, 345

O Lord, who through this holy week did suffer for us all, 348

Suffer and serve till all are fed and show how grandly love intends, 579

Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!, 358

the weary find eternal rest, and all who suffer want are blessed., 404

When at last all those who suffer find their comfort, 689

When we suffer, God sends healing; when we sin, the Lord forgives, 534

with your grace and mercy bless all who suffer homelessness., 692

Yours I am, O spotless Lamb, I will suffer nought to hide you, nought I ask beside you., 722


but we believe it was for us he hung and suffered there., 353

suffered under Pontius Pilate, he descended to the dead., 699

the very dying form of one who suffered there for me., 329

To avert from us God's wrath, Jesus suffered in our stead, 416

To him who suffered on the tree our souls, at his soul’s price, to gain, 213, 469

You have suffered great affliction and have borne it patiently, 334

You have suffered to release us, hope, salvation, joy to bring., 330

You once suffered on the cross to atone for sinners' guilt, 741


Christ suffers still, yet loves the more, and lives, where even hope has died., 362

never boastful nor resentful, love believes and suffers long:, 591

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

that suffers when one life despairs, and moves to intercede., 524


My works of love and sacrifice, although required, cannot suffice., 776


His precious blood alone has been sufficient ransom for my sin., 776

my grace, all-sufficient, shall be your supply., 709

sufficient is your arm alone, and our defense is sure., 143, 461


for none sufficiently can praise, love, honor, or adore you., 200


and since you, for sinners suff’ring on the cross were made an off’ring, 202

because by death and suff'ring you did for me atone., 484

for all you did on Calv'ry when suff'ring on the tree --, 774

God called you "My beloved Son," the suff'ring servant true, 321

high above this hungry, suff'ring world of ours:, 651

joy in our hearts is abiding, suff'ring and pain are subsiding., 316

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

teacher, healer, suff'ring servant, friend of sinners, foe of pride:, 642

The whole world's grief and suff'ring and earth's unspoken pain, 268

through your suff'ring, death and merit, life eternal we inherit, 334

who helped by education your suff'ring world to rise., 391

Your feet the path of suff'ring trod; your hand the vict'ry won, 348


Bless your congregation through your suff’rings, death, and blood., 203

by your suff'rings perfect made: hear us, holy Jesus., 352

Your suff'rings shall remain deep on my heart impressed, 488

your suff'rings, O what love unbounded for guilty ones the debt have paid!, 340


suggest whate'er I think or say; direct me in the narrow way., 733


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


Jesus, life of all the world, source and sum of all creation, 363


Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest, 460

The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun, 467

summer's sun

We fade, a dream that passes, like withered meadow grasses when summer's sun has shone., 806

summer's yellow sand

The summer's yellow sand, the blue of sky and sea, 466


as songtime and springtime and summertime to be, 599


pardon and spare me, summon and bear me homeward at last., 796

Yet, Lord, you summon us anew to grasp the task unfinished., 518


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

let no fear of death appall us, glad your summons to obey., 559

Let us rise, then, to his summons, dedicate to him our all, 635

So may the church today, Lord, your gospel summons hear, 391


and from morn to set of sun, through the church the song goes on., 386

and sun in its orbit obediently shine, 448

arise, (O/the) Sun so longed for, o'er this benighted sphere., 56, 256

but Christ the Sun of gladness, dispelling all our sadness, shines down on us in warmest light., 572

but crowned with glory like the sun that lights the morning sky., 257

Christ is himself the joy of all, the sun that warms and lights us., 367

Facing the rising sun of our new day begun, 707

God of the seedling, the snow and the sun, 655

Hail, the heav'n-born Prince of Peace! Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!, 295

he makes the sun in splendor rise, the God who cares for me., 466

hearts unfold like flow'rs before you, op'ning to the sun above., 544

hill and vale, and tree and flow'r, sun and moon, and stars of light, 538

I looked to Jesus, and I found in him my Star, my Sun, 606

Jesus shall reign where'er the sun does its successive journeys run, 404

let sun and moon and stars and light and what lies hidden praise your might., 385

Lord of all being, throned afar, your glory flames from sun and star, 122, 159, 464

may I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'n's Sun!, 719

Members -- on our Head depending, lights -- reflecting him, our Sun, 673

My heav'nly sun all pow'rful glows, my Jesus, reigning glorious!, 393

nearer than ever, still my shield and sun., 421

Praise the Lord! On us is shining Christ, the sun of righteousness, 298

short as the watch that ends the night before the rising sun., 461

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

Sun and moon bow down before him; all who dwell in time and space., 529

Sun and moon, lift up your voice; night and stars, in God rejoice., 127

sun and moon, rejoice before him; praise him, all you stars and light., 454

sun, moon, and stars in their courses above, 460

Sun of righteousness, arise; dawn upon our clouded skies, 521

Sun of righteousness, arise, triumph o'er the shades of night, 475

The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun, 467

The mighty sun that goes not down, before whose face clouds never frown,, 810

The radiant sun has vanished, its golden rays are banished from dark'ning skies of night, 572

The splendor of the noonday sun grows pale before its light., 810

To hail your rising, Sun of life, the gath'ring nations come, 320

We fade, a dream that passes, like withered meadow grasses when summer's sun has shone., 806

when there was no earth and no sky and no sun, 382

When we've been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, 783

which Christ upon the mountain shows, where brighter than the sun he glows!, 327

your face and garments, like the sun, shine with unborrowed light., 326

Your most radiant, glorious light far exceeds the sun so bright, 323

when, his love to me revealing he, the Sun of grace, with healing, 594


let the Redeemer's name be sung through every land, by every tongue., 551

Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above., 782

We've a song to be sung to the nations, that shall lift their hearts to the Lord, 621

While your glorious praise is sung, touch my lips, unloose my tongue, 553


like moonlight and starlight and sunlight on the sea, 599


as freedom after bondage, as sunrise to the day, 599

God reminds us ev’ry sunrise that the world is ours on lease --, 140

till the last sunrise; then, in your might, pardon and spare me, summon and bear me homeward at last., 796

Your sunrise turned that night to day; I woke – the dungeon flamed with light!, 773


constantly, Jesus be, more than thousand suns to me., 281

Jesulein, you shall be as a thousand suns to me., 323

your praise shall sound from shore to shore till suns shall rise and set no more., 551

sun's clear light

Morning Star, thy glory bright far excels the sun's clear light., 281


the sunset, and the morning that brightens up the sky., 467


come with your hearts of sunshine, and sing the angels' song., 284

Fair is the sunshine, fair is the moonlight, 470

I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of your face, 329

like meeting after parting, like sunshine after rain, 599

Now his grace to us imparts eternal sunshine to our hearts, 367

O lift on me the sunshine of your face: Saranam, 756

the breezes and the sunshine and soft refreshing rain., 453

Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me., 807


joyful music leads us sunward in the triumph song of life., 544


Lord, sup with us in love divine; your body and your blood, 411


shall the marriage supper share, if we his true followers are., 206

the marriage supper of the Lamb, the great epiphany., 312

The supper is ended. O, now be extended, 194

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


accept each faithful vow, and ev'ry suppliant hear., 517


he hears my supplication, dispelling all my care, 769

Jesus, grant us through your merit to inherit your salvation; hear, O hear our supplication., 278


God, our Maker, does provide for our needs to be supplied:, 450


All we need the Lord supplies us when we walk in paths of truth, 534

shining treasure of the lowly: God alone this good supplies., 715

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


Do now my needs supply lest I should droop and die., 737

May your life and death supply grace to live and grace to die, 352

my grace, all-sufficient, shall be your supply., 709

My Shepherd will supply my need; the Lord God is his name, 730

therefore have no fear, draw nigh, that your want I may supply.", 416

when athirst to him I cry, living water he'll supply., 662


In your one body let us be as living branches of a tree, your life our lives supplying, 188

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


ev’ry other help be gone, you are our support alone, 86

heav'nly leader, still direct us, still support, console, protect us, 799

leave, ah, leave me not alone, still support and comfort me., 724

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

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


large gifts supporting ev'rything that lives., 654

one word of your supporting breath drives all my fears away., 730


when all supports are washed away, he then is all my hope and stay., 771


and all was deep silence and night reigned supreme, 382

Around Christ's table we commune in fellowship supreme, 439

ev’ry love and precious dream, ev’ry prayer and joy supreme., 227

for on your supreme commands all the universe depends., 86

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

O make me worship you alone, and reign supreme in me., 747

Sing praise and hallelujah! To God who reigns supreme, 435


Bread, a food so elemental, yet supremely sacramental., 419


Because the Lord our God is good, his mercy is forever sure., 539

By your Spirit's sure direction may we meet,…dear Lord, in heaven., 809

for your mercies shall endure, ever faithful, ever sure, 19

His promise keeps us strong and sure; we trust his holy signature, 761

Make my calling and election, Jesus, ev'ry day more sure, 808

make us see your great salvation, seal us with your promise sure, 314

O great I Am! in you we rest, sure answer to our ev'ry quest., 486

on the rock of ages founded, what can shake your sure repose?, 522

our disappointment, guilt, and grieving, seeking new paths, and sure to find., 784

Our shield from foes, our balm for woes, our great and sure salvation., 121

sufficient is your arm alone, and our defense is sure., 143, 461

Sure as your truth shall last, to Zion shall be given, 513

sure of being safely guided, guarded well from ev'ry foe., 310

The sure provisions of my God attend me all my days, 730

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

Through the rise and fall of nations one sure faith yet standing fast, 507

We mark your saints, how they became in hindrances more sure, 644

who said to them, "Come follow me, my love for you is sure.", 481


Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?, 710


Now in faith I humbly ponder over this surpassing wonder, 588


It comes with joy surprising us; it triumphs o’er our fears., 260

to touch the lives of others by God's surprising grace, 620


awed by his love his foes surrender and fall before the Mighty One., 545

gift of great wonder, ours to surrender, trust for the children tomorrow will bear., 655

we would praise you and surrender all our hearts to be your own, 310


for he who surrendered his spirit is he who ascended to reign, 656


All your works with joy surround you, earth and heav'n reflect your rays, 544

may the love of God surround you ev'rywhere, ev'rywhere you may go., 822


enthroned, in light surrounded, when earth was yet unfounded, the living God, to him we come., 806

now scornfully surrounded with thorns your only crown., 345

that brought you here, by foes and thieves surrounded, 351

With salvation's walls surrounded you may smile at all your foes., 522


God of all, whose love surrounds us, praise we bring you joyfully, 619

Your grace surrounds us all our days -- for all your gifts we bring our praise., 800


Let the sense of wonder flowing from the wonders we survey, 664

When I survey the wondrous cross, 80, 350


Susanna, Mary, Magdalene who traveled with your Lord, 611


while on cross you hung suspended till your life in flesh had ended., 419


but I know Christ, and through it all I know his presence will sustain., 727

His oath, his covenant, his blood sustain me in the raging flood, 771

stretch forth your hand of healing now; with love the weak sustain, 628


for what your soul sustained when you for me did bleed., 89

O Father, who sustained them, O Spirit, who inspired, 634

O the wormwood and the gall! O the pangs his soul sustained!, 349


Our God eternal, reigning, creation's life sustaining, our refuge and our home, 806

shelt'ring you under his wings, O, so gently sustaining., 530

Sustaining God, your hands uphold earth's mysteries known or yet untold, 385

you are partaker of his throne, and all things are sustaining, 471


he made it, sustains it, and leads it in love to its heavenly goal, 656

here, as bread and wine are taken, Christ sustains us, as of old., 564

swathing bands

all meanly wrapped in swathing bands and in a manger laid, 296


Grant that we may love you truly; Lord, our thoughts and actions sway, 67

May the leading of his Spirit all our thoughts and actions sway!, 589

No force of arms shall there prevail nor justice cease its sway, 691

Purge our hearts from hate and envy; quench the pride that may hold sway, 619

Where other lords beside you hold their unhindered sway, 634

Would crowds that followed turn away? Would pow'rs of evil hold their sway?, 337


by his tears and bloody sweat, he earned his children's bread., 336


O Breath of Life, come sweeping through us, revive your church with life and power, 47


a little child so tender, sweet, that you should skip upon your feet., 307

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!, 783

and holiness shall whisper the sweet amen of peace, 753

and mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won, 511

and possess, in sweet communion, joys that earth cannot afford., 441

and thus in sweet concert Christ's praises to tell, 675

fill the heavens with sweet accord: holy, holy, holy Lord., 386

giving sweet foretaste of the festal joy, 421

Grounded on your Savior's merit, blessed in his communion sweet, 515

Hark, a voice from yonder manger, soft and sweet, does entreat, 289

her sweet communion, solemn vows, her hymns of love and praise., 513

his name like sweet perfume shall rise with ev'ry morning sacrifice., 404

How sweet to hold a newborn baby, and feel the pride and joy he gives, 706

I shall enjoy sweet rest., 794

in other's gladness finding sweet content, 587

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

In you alone, dear Lord, we own sweet hope and consolation, 121

Jesus, give the weary calm and sweet repose, 567

Let me at thy throne of mercy find a sweet relief, 772

Love is a gift, a present sweet, love unfailing and complete., 536

O feed me, Lord, that I may feed your hungry ones with manna sweet., 646

O give me Samuel's mind! A sweet unmurm'ring faith, 609

sweet memorials -- till the Lord call us round his heav'nly board, 413

temptation presses and its voice is sweet:, 759

The God of harvest praise; hands, hearts, and voices raise with sweet accord, 452

their harmonies sweet and befitting the word, 382

This is my friend, in whose sweet praise I all my days could gladly spend., 482

to whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring., 342

To you our vows with sweet accord, head of your church, we pay, 677

water that blesses and air that is sweet, 655

what seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet!, 625

where Moses and Elijah meet, the Lord holds converse high and sweet., 327

while with the Father and the Son sweet fellowship they find., 749

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet while shepherds watch are keeping?, 305

With high delight let us unite in songs of sweet jubilation., 368


All my heart again rejoices, as I hear, far and near, sweetest angel voices, 289

People and realms of ev'ry tongue dwell on his love with sweetest song, 404

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


and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees, 465

and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain., 566

Angels we have heard on high, singing sweetly through the night, 288

Children of the heav'nly King, as you journey, sweetly sing, 789

Lord, may I be at rest in you and sweetly sleep the whole night through., 569


a taste of honeyed sweetness to nourish heart and mind, 508

Your people despoil all the sweetness of earth, 682


And the church which still is one, let us swell the solemn hymn:, 74

he sends the snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain, 453

prophets swell the glad refrain, and the blessed martyrs follow, 386

with hearts and voices swell the strain, 213, 469


rising, swelling, coming, dwelling, in each new believer's heart., 702


like the leaven in the mixture swells inside while hid from view, 702


half-free, half-bound by inner chains, by social forces swept along, 579


Praise him, still the same forever, slow to chide, and swift to bless., 529

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

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day, 807

toiling with unceasing fervor, swift to venture at your call., 619

your hands swift to welcome, your arms to embrace:, 802


look now! for glad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing., 286

The days are swiftly passing, time is not ours to hold., 309


Our doors swing wide to welcome all who come responding to Christ's call., 520


A mighty wind came blowing, filled all the swirling air, 378

God of the sparrow God of the whale God of the swirling stars, 26, 462


A mighty fortress is our God, a sword and shield victorious, 788

a song that shall conquer evil and shatter the spear and sword, 621

a sword to face the tempter, a seed of life divine, 508

force me to render up my sword, and I shall conquer'r be., 604

to help to set the captive free, make plowshare out of sword, 696

We long for mighty signs of God – cathedral, miracle, and sword, 58

You never used a killer's sword to end an unjust tyranny, 583


a dream of swords to sickles bent, of spears to scythe and spade, 691

from the swords of Herod's soldiers, ravaged homes and parents' cries --, 692

sword's loud clashing

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


He by his name has sworn, on this we shall depend, 468

The old satanic foe has sworn to work us woe!, 788


Here are symbols to remind us of our lifelong need of grace, 564

through your symbols of redeeming, wine and bread in likeness seeming., 419


and often for each other flows the sympathizing tear., 680


with sympathy that understands and makes the needy whole., 524


In simple trust like theirs who heard, beside the Syrian sea, 739

by pow'rs and systems close confined yet seeking hope for humankind., 579
