PRAISE the Lord, His glories show,
Saints within His courts below,
Angels round His throne above
All that see and share His love.
Earth to heaven, and heaven to earth,
Tell His wonders, sing His worth:
Age to age, and shore to shore,
Praise Him, praise Him, evermore.
At the end of the printed sermons in the Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, there is usually a reference to the hymns sung during the service. These were from the hymnbook published by Spurgeon for use at the Tabernacle, entitled “Our Own Hymn-Book” — a collection of 1,130 hymns, without musical notes. Many of the hymns are quite rare, and some were written by Spurgeon himself. All of the hymns’ authors are identified.
Few people in history can be known by one name and have it ring true with their audience, and “Spurgeon” is one of them. Over time, Spurgeon has become known and revered as the “Prince of Preachers“. In the last 200 years he has been one of the most influential men for not only Preachers of the Gospel but for those who have not had the opportunity to hear and receive the Gospel message. He wrote tirelessly over his life, and WORDsearch Bible Software is committed to bring as many of Spurgeon’s works as possible to you in electronic form.
