Ira D. Sankey's Stories of Gospel Hymns and of Sacred Songs and Solos

Abide with me

All hail the power of Jesus name

All the way my saviourleads me

All to Christ I owe

Almost persuaded

A mighty fortress is our GOD

Are you coming home tonight

Arise my soul arise

Art thou weary

A shelter in the time of storm

A sinner forgiven

Asleep in jesus

A song of heaven and homeland

At the cross

Awake my soul

Beautiful river

Beautiful valley of eden


Blessed assurance

Blest be the tie that binds

Call now

Close to thee


Come believing

Come great deliverer come

Come sinner come

Come unto me

Come unto me and rest

Come ye disconsolate


Dare to be a Daniel

Dark is the night

Depth of mercy



Evening prayer

Even me

Follow on

Free from the law

Go bury thy sorrow

GOD be with you

Guide me o'thou great Jehovah

Hallelujah tis done I

Hallelujah what a saviour

Hark tis the voice of angels

Hear the call

He knows

He leadeth me

Here am I send me

Hiding in thee

Hold the fort

Hold thou my hand








I'll go where thou would'st I should go

I love to tell the story

I need thee every hour

In the secret of his presence

It is finished

It is well with my soul

I've found a friend

Jesus I will trust thee

Jesus lover of my soul

Jesus loves even me

Jesus loves me

Jesus of nazareth passeth by

Jesus saves

Jesus saviour pilot me


Just as I am

Knocking Knocking

Lead kindly light

Let the lower lights be burning

Let the saviour in

Missionary hymn

Moment by moment

More love to thee o christ

More to follow

Must I go empty handed

My ain countrie

My country tis of thee

My faith looks up to thee

My Jesus I love thee

My mothers prayer

My prayer

Nearer my GOD to thee

Near the cross

No hope in Jesus

None of self and all of thee

Not half has ever been told

Nothing but leaves

Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Not now my child

O child of GOD

O for a thousand tongues to sing

O GOD our help

Oh to be nothing

Oh what are you going to do

One more days work for Jesus

One sweetly solemn thought

On Jordan's stormy banks

Only a beam of sunshine

Only a step to Jesus

Only remember by what we have done

Only trust him

Onward christian soldiers

Out of the shadowland


Pass me not

Peace be still

Precious promise GOD hath given

Pull for shore

Rescue the perishing

Rest for the weary

Ring the bells of heaven

Rock of ages

Safe in the arms of Jesus

Saved by grace

Saviour like a shpherd lead us

Saviour more than life

Saviour visit thy plantation

Scatter seeds of kindness

Shall we meet

Shall you shall I

Singing all the time

Something for Jesus

Sometime we'll understand

Stand up for Jesus


Sun of my soul

Sweet by and by

Sweet hour of prayer

Sweet peace the gift of GOD'slove

Take me as I am

Take time to be holy

Tell it out

Tell me the old old story

Ten thousand times ten thousand

That will be heaven for me

The anchored soul

The child of a king

The christians goodnight

The cross of Jesus

The eye of faith

The gate ajar for me

The half was never told

The hand writing on the wall

The harbor bell

The king is coming

The light of the world is Jesus

The lily of the valley

The mistakes of my life

The model church

The morning land

The ninety and nine

There is a fountain

There is a greenhill far away

There'll be no dark valley

Theres a light in the valley

The shining shore

The smitten rock

The solid rock

The sweet story of old

The wonderous cross

Throw out the lifeline

Till he come

Tis midnight

Today the saviour calls

To the work

Trust and obey

Trusting Jesus that is all

Under his wings

Verily verily

Waiting and watching for me

Welcome wanderer welcome

We shall meet by and by

We shall sleep but not forever

What a friend we have in Jesus

What must it be to be there

what shall the harvest be

When Jesus comes

When the mists have rolled away

Where is my boy tonight

While the days are going by

Whiter than snow

Who so ever will

Why not tonight

Windows open toward Jerusalem

Wonderful words of life

Work for the night is coming

Ye must be bornagain

Yet there is room

Yield not to temptation
