Faith in the conscience works for peace, and bids the mourner's weeping cease, 700

For us he prayed; for us he taught; for us his daily works he wrought, 485

God's Spirit works through all who love, through all who touch the lives of these., 630

God's Spirit works through mortal mind and will., 629

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

World unto world proclaims the everlasting theme:, 436

Yea, what this world can never give, 593

Yet nations still prey on the meek of the world, and conflict turns parent from child., 682

You did not live a world away in hermit's cell or desert cave, 583

you have shed your radiance on a world of sin., 778

Your dying cleansed the world of sin, and all who die with you are clean, 333

worldling's pleasures

Fading are the worldling's pleasures, all their boasted pomp and show, 522


He's my only joy and treasure; tasteless is all worldly pleasure, 594

if worldly pressures fray the mind and love itself cannot unwind, 644

O let it freely burn, till worldly passions turn, 492


Choosing a manger for your throne, while worlds on worlds are yours alone, 54

My Lord of light who made the worlds, in wisdom you have spoken, 384

Now all the heav'nly splendor breaks forth in starlight tender from myriad worlds unknown, 572

Christ, engage us in your mission; worldwide let our parish be, 684


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

Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget the wormwood and the gall, 403

where Father, Son, and Spirit are worshiped evermore., 814


all creation worships you, the Father everlasting, 234


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

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


and all we are must speak his pow'r and worth., 629

because I know he holds the future, and life is worth the living just because he lives., 706

Jesus taught both by example and with words of lasting worth, 665

"Proclaim salvation's worth to people under heaven.", 633

To lift, to save, to reconcile, to grant essential worth!, 138


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


Church, rejoice! Raise your voice, sing Jehovah's worthy praise, 631

Jesus is worthy to receive our honor and our praise, 477

Lord Jesus, you are worthy for all on earth to praise, 774

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

sing your Savior's worthy praise, glorious in his works and ways., 789

that you should count us worthy, Lord, to share this heav'nly food., 417

Then howe'er your soul's oppressed, come, you are a worthy guest., 416

Worship, honor, pow'r and blessing you are worthy to receive, 330

Worthy is Christ, the Lamb who was slain, 238

Worthy is the Lamb once slain, blessing, honor, glory, pow’r, 88

"Worthy the Lamb that died," they cry, "to be exalted thus.", 477

worthy to be adored by all, both now and ever!, 488

your true and only Son, worthy of all praise, 234


and nourish lambs, and feed the sheep, the wounded heal, the lost bring in., 432

Come, you sinners, poor and needy, weak and wounded, sick and sore, 765

flesh that for our world was wounded, living, for the wounded plead!, 370

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

heal my wounded, broken spirit, save me by thy grace., 772

It makes the wounded spirit whole, and calms the troubled mind, 487

Now heal our anger, hurt and pain; now make the wounded whole., 674

O sacred head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down, 345

repenting souls, in him believe; you wounded, look on him and live., 198

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

There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole, 500

though we see you wounded, bleeding, see your thorn-encircled brow?, 331


feed the mouths that hunger, soothe the wounds that bleed, 582

It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds, and drives away our fears., 487

Jesus, in your thirst and pain, while your wounds your lifeblood drain, 352

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

rich wounds yet visible above in beauty glorified., 405

till all our lives enflesh your word and bear your wounds of love., 338


Pour out your gifts, wrap us in flames of energy and drive, 99


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


And in your love may we abide, estranged from none by wrath or pride, 519

His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form, 566

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

They who Jesus' mercy know are from wrath and envy freed, 416

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

yes, all the wrath, the woe that you inherit, this I do merit., 351


In the cross of Christ I glory, tow'ring o'er the wrecks of time, 76


though life be wrenched away, they cannot win the day., 788


Up, pray and watch and wrestle; at midnight comes the cry., 256


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


Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind; sight, riches, healing of the mind, 762

points out the wretched, ruined state of humankind, both small and great., 509


In haunts of wretchedness and need, on shadowed thresholds dark with fears, 581


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

writing with power and with love., 690


his pow’r and glory written plain – so none may doubt that he is Lord, 58

Isaiah the prophet has written of old how God's earthly kingdom shall come., 682

You, Creator God, have written your great name on humankind, 685


and worship him with song for saving us from wrong., 272

Forgive me, Lord, for this I pray, the wrong that I have done this day., 569

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

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

Lift from our lives the weight of our wrong., 489

Never jealous, never selfish, love will not rejoice in wrong, 591

repentance, and an end of sinning, renouncing ev'ry wrong confessed., 315

So has the church, in liturgy and song, in faith and love, through centuries of wrong, 532

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

We come with self-inflicted pains of broken trust and chosen wrong, 579

when with wrong our spirits bleed: hear us, holy Jesus., 352

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

Yours is life that makes us stand firm for truth, all wrong defying, 363


fill us with your love and pity, heal our wrongs, and help our need., 648

For he, my soul, has sent his Son to die for wrongs which you have done, 72

for laws of truth and judgment to right our human wrongs, 508

that broods on wrongs and will not let old bitterness depart, 777


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