Subject: Help. Words to M&S hymn.
From: Sailor Ron
Date: 17 Aug 09 - 10:56 AM

I am looking for the worhs of two Moody & Sankey hymns that, I believe, are called "The drunkards repentance" and has the opening line "The drunkard reached his cheerless home", and the other one is called "Have courage my son to say no!". I'e looked in DT but no joy. My copy M&S met with a fatel accident some time ago. Any help would be much appreciated.

I haven't found the first one, but 'Have courage' is number 1151, and goes:-
1.You're starting, my boy, on life's journey, along the grand highway
of life;
You'll meet with a thousand temptations - each city with evil is
rife.
This world is a stage of excitement, there's danger wherever you go;
But if you are tempted in weakness, have courage, my boy, to say No!

Ch:Have courage, my boy, to say No! Have courage, my boy, to say No!
   Have courage, my boy, have courage, my boy,
   Have courage, my boy, to say No!

2.In courage, my boy, lies your safety, when you the long journey
begin;
Your trust in a heavenly Father will keep you unspotted from sin.
Temptations will go on increasing, as streams from a rivulet flow;
But if you'd be true to your manhood, have courage, my boy, to say
No!

3.Be careful in choosing companions; seek only the brave and the
true;
And stand by your friends when in trial - ne'er changing the old
for the new,
And when by false friends you are tempted the taste of the winecup
to know,
With firmness, with patience, and kindness, have courage, my boy, to
say No!

My copy is only the 1200 Pieces, so it's possible the other one is in the expanded volume.

The other one is Renounce Thy Cup. I'll try and post the words in a little while.

Sorry that should have been Renounce The Cup. (Getting carried away with the language!).

Here it is.

RENOUNCE THE CUP
(Philip Phillips)

A drunkard reached his cheerless home,
The storm without was dark and wild,
He forced his sleeping wife to roam,
A wand'rer friendless with her child;
As through the falling snow she pressed
The babe was sleeping on her breast,
The babe was sleeping on her breast.

And colder still the winds did blow,
And darker hours of night came on.
And deeper grew the drifted snow;
Her limbs were chilled, her strength was gone.
"O God!", she cried in accents wild,
"If I must perish, save my child;
If I must perish, save my child!"

She stripped the mantle from her breast,
And bared her bosom to the storm;
As round the child she wrapped the vest,
She smiled to think that it was warm.
With one cold kiss, a tear of grief,
The broken-hearted found relief,
The broken-hearted found relief.

At morn her cruel husband passed,
And saw her on the snowy bed;
Her tearful eyes were closed at last,
Her cheek was pale, her spirit fled:
He raised the mantle from the child,
The babe looked up, and sweetly smiled,
The babe looked up and sweetly smiled.

Shall this sad warning plead in vain?
Poor thoughtless one, it speaks to you;
Now break the tempter's cruel chain,
No more your dreadful way pursue:
Renounce the cup, to Jesus fly-
Immortal soul, why will you die?
Immortal soul, why will you die?

There's a Moody & Sankey Hymn singing 'do' at Whitby Folk week on Sunday the 23rd of August in St. Ninian's Church on Baxtergate ( the church with the double set of steps between Boots and Moss' Chemists opposite Yorkshire Traders) 5.30pm to 7pm, everyone welcome and FREE admission :)

And here's me reading the subject line and wondering what a Marks & Spencer hymn might be. I presume there are hymns to St Michael.

I've always thought of them as Sankey & Moody, but "S&M hymn" would really give the wrong idea.

The great thing about an M&S hymn would be that you could take it back if it didn't fit.

"Have Courage, My Boy, To Say No!" is in Sankey et al.'s Gospel hymns (1895), No. 401.

"Renounce the Cup" is in C.W. Coates' The Canadian musical fountain (1874), No. 26.
