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


Lead us forward ever, slipping backward never, 493


a need that, undiminished, rebukes our slothful ease, 634


Help me the slow of heart to move by some clear, winning word of love, 735

his wrath is ever slow to rise and ready to abate., 546

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

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


and hope to serve yet spurs our slowing pace, 711


angels adore him in slumber reclining, 317


He who slumbered in the grave is exalted now to save, 360


All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, 467

Come then, let us hasten yonder; here let us all, great and small, 289

healing pain and sickness, blessing children small, 578

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

that were an off'ring far too small, 80, 350

This flow'r, so small and tender, with fragrance fills the air, 302

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


Like all these is God's great kingdom, growing from the smallest part, 702

Lord, grant that we impelled by love in smallest things may faithful prove, 643


Could smile on poverty and pain, and triumph e'en in death., 106

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


see where the infant Jesus smiles upon Mary's breast!, 284

so God smiles on ev'ry person, so God takes such keen delight, 659

he was little, weak, and helpless; tears and smiles like us he knew, 292


and while smiling, have spoken my name., 613

while on others thou art smiling, do not pass me by., 772


smite death's threat'ning wave before you: God be with you till we meet again., 824

They crown your head with thorns, they smite, they scourge you, 351


and fan our smold'ring lives to flame., 379


Can build an ark, can smooth the wave, for such as love his name., 106


It snaps the brittleness of hate, unties the bonds of greed., 260


In all their days their hearts secure from sinful snares, we pray., 409

Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come, 783


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

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

I, the Lord of snow and rain, I have born my people's pain., 641

In the cold and snow of winter there's a spring that waits to be, 797


for though we sit or stand in place our spirits soar and dance with grace., 520

Soar we now where Christ has led, alleluia!, 359


flourishing as God has granted, soaring high on Spirit wings!, 665

your justice like mountains high soaring above, 457


If our hearts are lifted where devotion soars, 651


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


May your care and mercy lead us to a just society, 617


We built a sanctuary sure; it stands on sacred sod, 439


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

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


The graves of all his saints Christ blest, and softened ev’ry bed, 87


Softly the night is sleeping on Bethlehem's peaceful hill, 284


and with a gentle, caring deed, prepare the soil and plant the seed., 440

God's word in Christ is seed; good soil its urgent need, 501

Good soil! A human field! A hundredfold to yield., 501

Good soil, O mother earth, the womb, where seed takes birth., 501

Thank you, God, for water, soil, and air, 654

that we good soil may be. Begin, O Lord, with me!, 501

the fertile soil in heart and mind., 501

When seed falls on good soil, it's born through quiet toil, 501

where soil receives, the earth conceives, 501


think not to win God's aid if greed your commerce soils:, 695


in this world as Christ's sojourners we receive new pow'r, new birth., 627


Now Christ, the Lord, our God, is born! As solace to a world forlorn, 306

In his arms he'll take and shield you; you will find a solace there., 743


sold once for silver, murdered here, our brother, 562

those who jeered and mocked and sold you, pierced and nailed you to the tree, 259


Soldier of Christ, well done! Praise be your new employ, 811


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

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, as soldiers of the cross:, 752


conquer my heart, make love its sole endeavor henceforth forever!, 351

God the Father's most beloved and sole begotten Son, 336

We own the doctrine of your cross to be our sole foundation, 200


by your teachings true and holy, drawn from earth to love you solely., 558

Grant us your truth, your freedom give, that hearts for you might solely live, 464

his the loving purpose solely to preserve them pure and holy., 667

O that bread of yours, how holy, which, Christ Jesus, you are solely!, 419

Simple innocence springs solely forth from Jesus' bleeding side, 715

solely because you are my God and my eternal King., 602


and as priests, his solemn praises each for a thank-off'ring brings., 522

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

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

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

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

the solemn pledge we owe you to go and make you known., 634

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

this solemn jubilee we hold. May we, as then did they, 399

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


On Christ the solid rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand, 771

solid joys and lasting treasures none but Zion's children know., 522


where the solitary labor, you are there with them alone., 576


all is solitude and gloom; who has taken him away?, 349


I know not how that Joseph's tomb could solve death's mystery, 704


dressed no more in spirit somber, clothed instead in joy and wonder, 187


I love to tell the story, for some have never heard, 625


O! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble., 354


a voice was heard from heaven saying, "This is my own beloved Son.", 315

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