He closed the yawning gates of hell; the bars from heav'n's high portals fell, 361


Amen, yea, my lasting praises, Jesus, unto you are giv'n, 808

yea, to our aid himself he came, 519

Yea, what this world can never give, 593


as year by year, days add to numbered days, 711

Greet now the swiftly changing year with joy and penitence sincere., 308

prophets and patriarchs, year by year, 280

Rejoice! Rejoice! With thanks embrace another year of grace., 308

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

The new year we are greeting will soon become the old., 309

upon our lives rich blessing trace in this new year of grace., 308

we meet to close another year, 311

we with grateful hearts would gather to begin the year with praise --, 310

what need we fear in earth or space in this new year of grace!, 308

what they longed for many a year, stands fulfilled in glory here., 261

when earthly years are ended, that bright new year above., 309

With praises and thanksgiving we enter this new year, 309

Your hand has helped us on through ev'ry passing year, 633


not for faith that masters mountains; for this better gift we yearn, 591

of those who long for oneness and yearn to be made whole., 503


All leave us still yearning for your word of truth., 128

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

God of every yearning heart:, 132

keep it burning, for thee yearning, wondrous Child divine!, 285

kneel in awe and wonder; love him who with love is yearning, 289

like the merchant, fine pearls seeking, searches, yearning for the best, 702

People in sorrow are yearning to sing, come, come, come Jesus Christ, 266

Therefore I pray, while here I stay and look to him with yearning:, 596

yours the yearning, the will, the way., 499


All time is yours, O Lord, to give; may we, in all the years we live, 804

and that future years shall see evermore and evermore., 483

Bless these lives of dedication -- days and seasons, weeks and years, 665

By your patient years of toiling, by your silent hours of pain, 648

Christ is alive! No longer bound to distant years in Palestine, 362

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

firm as a rock your truth must stand, when rolling years shall cease to move., 455

for all of the families we've known through the years, 678

for mem'ries gathered through the years, and faith that grows from joys and tears., 804

from everlasting you are God, to endless years the same., 461

God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, 707

grant me henceforth, dear Savior, through all my pilgrim years, 795

Let not the passing of the years rob us of joy or cause us fears, 804

Lord of our closing years, always your promise stands, 800

Lord of our growing years, with us from infancy, 800

Lord of our middle years, giver of steadfastness, 800

Lord of our older years, steep though the road may be, 800

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

O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, 143, 461

the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight., 282

The years have all been crowded with tokens of your love, 13

This church has felt your blessing for lo, these many years, 433

Through all the passing years, O Lord, grant that, when church bells are ringing, 512

when earthly years are ended, that bright new year above., 309

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

when with the ever-circling years comes round the age of gold, 286

whose love no passing years can dim, our changeless friend., 425

year's needs

His love abundant far exceeds the volume of a whole year's needs., 308


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


Yesterday, today, fore'er the same, 756


All the world is God's own field, fruit unto his praise to yield, 450

and 'neath his shadow here to rest we yield us, for he will shield us., 575

body, soul, and spirit, all we yield to you., 778

fired by the same ambition, to you we yield our pow'rs., 634

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

none else on earth shall yield me pleasure, none else in heav'n, when earth is past., 340

Shall we not yield him, in costly devotion, 317

the brightest glories earth can yield and brighter bliss of heaven., 513

to God, the giver of all good, the source of bounteous yield, 650

to you alone may my spirit yield, 28


who yielded his life an atonement for sin, 550


yielding up your soul at last: hear us, holy Jesus., 352


God of the fertile fields, Lord of the earth that yields our daily bread, 653


But if, forgetful, we should find your yoke is hard to bear, 644

Help me to bear your easy yoke, in ev'ry moment watch and pray, 638

let them know your yoke is easy, let them prove your burden's light., 660


O that with yonder sacred throng we at his feet may fall, 403


calling the young and old to rest, calling the souls of those distressed, 512

How shall the young direct their way? What light shall be their perfect guide?, 510

The young, the old inspire with wisdom from above, 376

This child of God, though young or old, we welcome now into Christ's fold, 410

We, married, single, young and old, what treasured trust will find., 674

who by faithful words and actions lead young lives to God above!, 665

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

young and old, your praise expressing, sing your mercies ever new, 1, 66

young and old, your praise expressing, our glad songs to you we lift., 454

young men and women, aging folk and children, praise to the Savior!, 383


if we are yours and yours alone will be, 742


and like the eagle he renews the vigor of our youth., 546

and youth renewed and health restored, claimed you, the Lord of light:, 736

bless the youth, the rising generation; blessed may your dear children be, 445

like the eagle, God restores us to the vigor of our youth., 534

Now in the days of youth when life is filled with choice, 801

of childhood and youth and adulthood and age., 678

Renew us, as of old; restore the joy of youth, 674

Technology, learning, philosophy, youth, 128

to the child, the youth, the aged, love in living deeds to show, 688

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

We thank you, Lord, for dreams of youth, for wisdom leading on to truth, 804

who shepherds us, at ev'ry stage, through youth, maturity, and age:, 803

Women and men, in age and youth, can feel the Spirit, hear the call, 362


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