Hymn #3: For Every Soul In Every Need

Thanks to Patrick Collins for the percussion help this week…

A bit of info about the author:  Samuel John Stone, a clergyman of the Church of England, the son of Rev. William Stone, was born at Whitmore, Staffordshire, April 25, 1839. He was educated at Pembroke College, Oxford, where he was graduated B.A. in 1862. Later he took orders and served various Churches. He succeeded his father at St. Paul’s, Haggerstown, in 1874. He was the author of many original hymns and translations, which were collected and published in 1886. His hymns are hopeful in spirit and skillfully constructed. He published several poetic volumes. He died November 19, 1900.


For Every Soul In Every Need

Listen | Chart

For every soul in every need
He ever lives to intercede
Presenting there within the veil
A sacrifice that cannot fail

Our heav’nly great High Priest He stands
By pierced feet and pierced hands
By bleeding brow and wounded side
He lives to plead for whom He died

Whom have we, Lord, in heaven, but Thee
Like ships, safe moored on stormy sea
Our souls in peril, with Thee there
Find anchorage of hope and prayer

Set loose from earth and evermore
Fast bound to that eternal shore
So all our life and love shall be
Ascended Master, hid with Thee
