183    What wondrous love is this

202   When I survey the wondrous cross

33      When in our music God is glorified

497   When Israel was in Egypt's land

358   When Jesus came preaching the way of our God

190    When Jesus wept

61      When long before time

390   When love is found

111     When morning gilds the skies

478   When Stephen, full of power and grace

34      When the morning stars together

415    When we are living (Pues si vivimos)

462   Where cross the crowded ways of life

64     Wherever I may wander

138    While shepherds watched their flocks

157    Who would think that what was needed

217    Wind who makes all winds that blow

170    Wise men seeking Jesus

435   Within the maddening maze of things

408   Withou the Fire, there is no burning

203   Woman, weeping in the garden

307   Wonder of wonders

310   Wonder of wonders here revealed

374   Won't you let me be your servant

298   Write these words in our hearts

11       Ye watchers and ye holy ones

330   You are called to tell the story

125    Young Mary was to be my wife (Joseph's Carol)

73     Your love, O God

49     Your name we bless, O risen Lord

Zechariah's Song - see:  Now bless the God of Israel
