Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “The Master Hath Come”

Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “The Master Hath Come”In Ephesians 5:15-21, we are given directions on how to properly live as Christians. One of these is to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart.

Each Monday, I share a song from history or present-day that present a high-view of God, praise Him, and teaches solid doctrine.

The Master Hath Come

by Sarah Doudney (1871)

The Master has come, and He calls us to follow
The track of the footprints He leaves on our way;
Far over the mountain and through the deep hollow,
The path leads us on to the mansions of day;
The Master has called us, the children who fear Him,
Who march ‘neath Christ’s banner, His own little band;
We love Him and seek Him, we long to be near Him,
And rest in the light of His beautiful land.

Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “The Master Hath Come”The Master has called us; the road may be dreary,
And dangers and sorrows are strewn on the track;
But God’s Holy Spirit shall comfort the weary;
We follow the Savior and cannot turn back.
The Master has called us; though doubt and temptation
May compass our journey, we cheerfully sing:
“Press onward, look upward,” thru much tribulation;
The children of Zion must follow their King.

The Master has called us, in life’s early morning,
With spirits as fresh as the dew on the sod;
We turn from the world, with its smiles and its scorning
To cast in our lot with the people of God:
The Master has called us, His sons and His daughters,
We plead for His blessing and trust in His love:
And thru the green pastures, beside the still waters,
He’ll lead us at last to His kingdom above.


This choir singing The Master Hath Come is a bit abridged but still beautiful and powerful.
