Ephrem the Syrian was a Syriac and a prolific Syriac-language Hymnographer and theologian of the 4th century. His works are hailed by Christians throughout the world and many denominations venerate him as a saint. He has been declared a Doctor of the Church in Roman Catholicism. He is especially beloved in the Syriac Orthodox Church.
Ephrem wrote a wide variety of Hymns, poems, and sermons in verse, as well as prose biblical exegesis. These were works of practical theology for the edification of the church in troubled times. So popular were his works, that, for centuries after his death, Christian authors wrote hundreds of pseudepigraphal works in his name. Ephrems works witness to an early form of Christianity in which western ideas take little part. He has been called the most significant of all of the fathers of the Syriac-speaking church tradition.

It has been decided to omit hymn numbers since there are often several different editions of the major hymn books. It has been impossible to refer to all hymn books currently in use. If the book used at your church is not included below, it is suggested that you check the index of your book and make a note of the hymns in the following list that are included there. Your books may also contain other suitable hymns not shown in our list. As the list below clearly indicates, no one church's or denomination's books contain all the suitable material that is currently available.
We have been saved by faith alone In Christ our solid Cornerstone. Herein we stand; no other ground Will e'er be where our hope is found! We thus hereby confess, ""Sola fide! Unmerited, and undeserved, Inheritance in heaven reserved, This grace is ours, amazing, free-- So long our song, and e'er shall be! We thus confess, yea, ""Sola gratia!
In worship we can speak to God about our work, pray that our daily work may be pleasing to God, and respond to God's continual call to live lives worthy of the calling. The following are songs, hymns, prayers, and readings that give voice to the living out of faith that we call our work or our vocation. We work for more than wages and manage for more than profit so that mutual respect and the just use of goods and skills may shape the workplace. While we earn or profit, we love our neighbors by providing useful products and services. In our global economy we advocate meaningful work and fair wages for all. By faith, we are called, as generations have before and generations will be to come—called to live out our faith through our work.
Prayer is an important Christian discipline, and every worship leader needs a good repertoire of worship songs about prayer in their back pocket when the situation calls for it. Many of them communicate truth in thoughtful ways that are missing in some modern worship.
