O Sing of His Mighty Love Lyrics O, bliss of the purified! Bliss of the free!
I'm plunged in the crimson tide opened for me!
O'er sin and uncleanness exulting I stand,
And point to the prints of the nails in His hand.

Refrain: O sing of His mighty love,
Sing of His mighty love,
Sing of His mighty love, mighty to save.

O, bliss of the purified! Jesus is mine,
No longer in dread condemnation I pine;
In conscious salvation I sing of His grace,
Who lifteth upon me the smiles of His face.

O, bliss of the purified! bliss of the pure!
No wound hath the soul that His blood cannot cure,
No sorrow bowed head but may sweetly find rest,
No tears but may dry them on Jesus's breast.

O, Jesus the crucified! Thee will I sing!
My blessed redeemer! my God and my King!
My soul filled with rapture shall shout o'er the grave,
And triumph in death in the Mighty To Save.

Almighty King! Whose Wondrous Hand Lyrics Almighty King! Whose wondrous hand
Supports the weight of sea and land,
Whose grace is such a boundless store,
No heart shall break that sighs for more.

Thy providence supplies my food,
And 'tis Thy blessing makes it good;
My soul is nourished by Thy word,
Let soul and body praise the Lord.

My streams of outward comfort came,
From Him, Who built this earthly frame;
Whate'er I want His bounty gives,
By Whom my soul forever lives.

Either His hand preserves from pain,
Or, if I feel it, heals again;
From Satan's malice shields my breast,
Or overrules it for the best.

Forgive the song that falls so low
Beneath the gratitude I owe;
It means Thy praise, however poor,
An angel's song can do no more.

The Love of God Lyrics The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.

Refrain:
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints' and angels' song.

When years of time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men, who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God's love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming love from heav'n above
The saints' and angels' song.

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

The Lord Jehovah Reigns LyricsThe Lord Jehovah reigns,
And royal state maintains;
His head with awful glories crowned,
Arrayed in robes of light,
Be girt with sov'reign might,
And rays of majesty around.

Upheld by Thy commands,
Thy world securely stands,
And skies and stars obey Thy word;
Thy throne was fixed on high,
Before the starry sky,
Eternal is Thy kingdom, Lord.

In vain the noisy crowd,
Like billows fierce and loud,
Against Thine empire rage and roar;
In vain with angry spite the surly nations fight,
And dash like waves against the shore.

Let floods and nations rage,
And all their pow'rs engage,
Let swelling tides assault the sky;
The terrors of Thy frown
Shall beat their madness down;
Thy throne forever stands on high.

He Leadeth Me LyricsHe leadeth me, O blessed thought!
O words with heav'nly comfort fraught!
Whate'er I do, where'er I be
Still 'tis God's hand that leadeth me.

Refrain:
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful foll'wer I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden's bowers bloom,
By waters still, o'er troubled sea,
Still 'tis His hand that leadeth me.

Lord, I would clasp my hand in Thine,
Nor ever murmur nor repine;
Content, whatever lot I see,
Since 'tis my God that leadeth me.

And when my task on earth is done,
When by Thy grace the vict'ry's won,
E'en death's cold wave I will not flee,
Since God through Jordan leadeth me.

Awakening Chorus LyricsAwake! (Awake) Awake! (Awake) and sing the blessed story,
Awake! (Awake) Awake! (Awake)
And let your song of praise arise;
Awake! (Awake) Awake! (Awake) the earth is full of glory,
And light (and light) is beaming from the radiant skies;
The rocks and rills, the vales and hills resound with gladness,
All nature joins to sing the triumph song.

Refrain:
The Lord Jehovah reigns and sin is backward hurled!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Lift heart and voice, Jehovah reigns!
Proclaim His sov'reign pow'r to all the world,
And let His glor'uos banner be unfurled!
Jehovah reigns!
Rejoice! (Rejoice) Rejoice! (Rejoice) Rejoice! (Rejoice)
Jehovah reigns!

Ring out!(Ring out) Ring out! (Ring out) O bells of joy and gladness!
Repeat, (repeat) repeat, (repeat) anew the story o'er again;
Till all (till all) the earth (the earth) shall lose its weight of sadness,
And shout (and shout) anew (anew) the glorious refrain;
With angels in the heights sing of the great salvation
He wrested from the hands of sin and death.

My Soul, Be On Thy Guard LyricsMy soul, be on thy guard;
Ten thousand foes arise;
The hosts of sin are pressing hard
To draw thee from the skies.

O watch, and fight, and pray;
The battle ne'er give o'er;
Renew it boldly ev'ry day,
And help divine implore.

Ne'er think the vict'ry won,
Nor lay thine armor down;
The work of faith will not be done,
Till thou obtain the crown.

Fight on, my soul, till death
Shall bring thee to thy God;
He'll take thee, at thy parting breath,
To His divine abode.

Majestic Sweetness
Sits Enthroned
LyricsMajestic sweetness sits enthroned
Upon the Savior's brow;
His head with radiant glories crowned,
His lips with grace o'erflow,
His lips with grace o'erflow.

To Christ, the Lord, let ev'ry tongue
Its noblest tribute bring
When He's the subject of the song,
That can refuse to sing?
That can refuse to sing?

Survey the beauties of His face,
And on His glories dwell;
Think of the wonders of His grace,
And all His triumphs tell,
And all His triumphs tell.

No mortal can with Him compare
Among the sons of men;
Fairer is He than all the fair
Who fill the heav'nly train,
Who fill the heav'nly train.

He saw me plunged in deep distress
And flew to my relief;
For me He bore the shameful cross
And carried all my grief,
And carried all my grief.

To Him I owe my life and breath
And all the joys I have;
He makes me triumph over death
And saves me from the grave,
And saves me from the grave.

Since from His bounty I receive
Such proofs of love divine,
Had I a thousand hearts to give,
Lord, they should all be Thine,
Lord, they should all be Thine.

Jesus Paid It All LyricsI hear the Savior say,
"Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all."

Refrain:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow'r, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper's spots
And melt the heart of stone.

For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I'll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calvry's Lamb.

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
"Jesus died my soul to save,"
My lips shall still repeat.

Rejoice Ye Pure In Heart LyricsRejoice ye pure in heart;
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing;
Your glorious banner wave on high,
The cross of Christ your King.

Refrain:
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice,
Give thanks and sing.

Bright youth and snow crown'd age,
Strong men and maidens meek,
Raise high your free, exultant song,
God's wondrous praises speak.

With all the angel choirs,
With all the saints of earth,
Pour out the strains of joy and bliss,
True rapture, noblest mirth.

With voice as full and strong
As ocean's surging praise,
Send forth the hymns our fathers loved,
The psalms of ancient days.

Yes, on through life's long path,
Still chanting as ye go;
From youth to age, by night and day,
In gladness and in woe.

At last the march shall end;
The wearied ones shall rest;
The pilgrims find their Father's house,
Jerusalem the blest.

Then on, ye pure in heart!
Rejoice, give thanks and sing!
Your glorious banner wave on high,
The cross of Christ your King.

Tell Me the Story of Jesus LyricsTell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word.
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.
Tell how the angels in chorus,
Sang as they welcomed His birth.
"Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth."

Refrain:
Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word.
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.

Fasting alone in the desert,
Tell of the days that are past.
How for our sins He was tempted,
Yet was triumphant at last.
Tell of the years of His labor,
Tell of the sorrow He bore.
He was despised and afflicted,
Homeless, rejected and poor.

Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,
Writhing in anguish and pain.
Tell of the grave where they laid Him,
Tell how He liveth again.
Love in that story so tender,
Clearer than ever I see.
Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
Love paid the ransom for me.

To God The Only Wise LyricsTo God the only wise,
Our Savior and our King,
Let all the saints below the skies
Their humble praises bring.

'Tis His almighty love,
His counsel, and His care,
Preserves us safe from sin and death,
And ev'ry hurtful snare.

He will present His saints,
Unblemished and complete,
Before the glory of His face,
With joys divinely great.

Then all the chosen race
Shall meet around the throne,
Shall bless the conduct of His grace,
And make His wonders known.

To our Redeemer, God,
Wisdom and pow'r belong,
Immortal crowns of majesty,
And everlasting songs.

When Overwhelmed With Doubts and Fears LyricsWhen overwhelmed with doubts and fear,
Great God, do Thou my spirit cheer;
Let not mine eyes with tears be fed,
But to the Rock of Ages led.

When storms of sin and sorrow beat,
Lead me to this divine retreat;
Thy perfect righteousness and blood,
My Rock, my Fortress, and my God.

When guilt lies heavy on my soul,
And waves of fierce temptation roll;
I'll to the Rock for shelter flee,
And take my refuge, Lord in Thee.

When called the vale of death to tread,
Then to the Rock may I be led;
Nor fear to cross that gloomy sea,
Since Thou hast tasted death for me.

He Loves Me LyricsAlas! and did my Savior bleed,
And did my Sov'reign die?
Would He devote His sacred head
For such a worm as I?

Refrain:
He loves me, He loves me,
He loves me this I know!
He gave Himself to die for me
Because He loves me so.

Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity, grace unknown,
And love beyond degree!

Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died
For man, the creature's sin.

Thus might I hide my blushing face
While His dear cross appears,
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes in tears.

But drops of grief can ne'er repay
The debt of love I owe;
Here, Lord, I give myself away
'Tis all that I can do.

Break Thou the Bread of Life LyricsBreak Thou the bread of life, dear Lord, to me,
As Thou didst break the loaves beside the sea;
Beyond the sacred page I seek Thee, Lord;
My spirit pants for Thee, O living Word!

Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, to me, to me,
As Thou didst bless the bread by Galilee;
Then shall all bondage cease, all fetters fall;
And I shall find my peace, my all in all.

Thou art the bread of life, O Lord, to me,
Thy holy Word the truth that saveth me;
Give me to eat and live with Thee above;
Teach me to love Thy truth, for Thou art love.

O send Thy Spirit, Lord, now unto me,
That He may touch my eyes, and make me see:
Show me the truth concealed within Thy Word,
And in Thy Book revealed I see Thee, Lord.

Savior, Like A Shepherd Lead Us LyricsSavior, like a shepherd lead us,
Much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us,
For our use Thy folds prepare.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

We are Thine, Do Thou befriend us,
Be the guardian of our way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us,
Seek us when we go astray.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Hear, O hear us when we pray.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Hear, O hear us when we pray.

Thou hast promised to receive us,
Poor and sinful though we be;
Thou hast mercy to relieve us,
Grace to cleanse and pow'r to free.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Early let us turn to Thee.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Early let us turn to Thee.

Early let us seek Thy favor,
Early let us do Thy will;
Blessed Lord and only Savior,
With Thy love our bosoms fill.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Thou hast lov'd us, love us still.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Thou hast lov'd us, love us still.

Sweet Hour of Prayer LyricsSweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father's throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter's snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
The joys I feel, the bliss I share,
Of those whose anxious spirits burn
With strong desires for thy return!
With such I hasten to the place
Where God my Savior shows His face,
And gladly take my station there,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
May I thy consolation share,
Till, from Mount Pisgah's lofty height,
I view my home and take my flight:
This robe of flesh I'll drop and rise
To seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
"Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!"

All Hail the Power of Jesus Name! Lyrics All hail the pow'r of Jesus' Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God,
Who from His altar call;
Who from His altar call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse's Rod,
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel's chosen race,
Ye ransomed of the fall,
Ye ransomed of the fall,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at His feet,

Let ev'ry kindred ev'ry tribe
On this terrestrial ball,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,

O that, with yonder sacred throng,
We at His feet may fall,
We at His feet may fall,
We'll join the everlasting song.

All People that on Earth Do Dwell LyricsAll people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Him serve with fear, His praise forth tell;
Come ye be-fore Him and rejoice.

The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make;
We are His folk, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.

O enter then His gates with praise;
Approach with joy His courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless His Name always,
For it is seemly so to do.

For why? The Lord our God is good;
His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.

Awakening Chorus LyricsAwake! Awake! and sing the blessed story;

And light is beaming from the radiant skies
The rocks and rills, the vales and hills resound with gladness,
All nature joins to sing the triumph song

Chorus: The Lord Jehovah reigns and sin is backward hurled!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Lift heart and voice Jehovah reigns!
Proclaim His sov'reign pow'r to all the world,
And let His glor'ous banner be unfurled!

Ring out! Ring out! O bells of joy and gladness!
Repeat! Repeat! Anew the story o'er again,
Till all the earth shall lose its weight of sadness,
And shout anew the glorious refrain;
With angels in the heights sing of the great salvation
He wrested from the hand of sin and death.

Blow Ye The Trumpet, Blow! LyricsBlow ye the trumpet, blow!
The gladly solemn sound
Let all the nations know,
To earth's remotest bound:

Refrain: The year of jubilee is come!
The year of jubilee is come!
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

Exalt the Lamb of God,
The sin atoning Lamb;
Redemption by His blood
Through all the lands proclaim.

Christ Jesus Lay In Death's Strong Bands LyricsChrist Jesus lay in death's strong bands,
For our offenses given;
But now at God's right hand He stands,
And brings us life from Heaven.
Therefore let us joyful be,
And sing to God right thankfully
Loud songs of Hallelujah. Hallelujah!

It was a strange and dreadful strife
When life and death contended;
The victory remained with life;
The reign of death was ended.
Holy Scripture plainly saith
That death is swallowed up by death
His sting is lost forever! Hallelujah!

Here the true Paschal Lamb we see,
Whom God so freely gave us;
He died on the accursed tree -
So strong His love! - to save us.
See, His blood doth mark our door;
Faith points to it, Death passes o'er,
And Satan cannot harm us. Hallelujah!

So let us keep the festival
Where to the Lord invites us
Christ is Himself the joy of all,
The Sun that warms and lights us.
By His grace He doth impart
Eternal sunshine to the heart;
The night of sin is ended! Hallelujah!

Then let us feast this joyful day
On Christ, the Bread of Heaven;
The Word of grace hath purged away
The old and evil leaven.
Christ alone our souls will feed;
He is our Meat and Drink indeed;
Faith lives upon no other! Hallelujah!

Day By Day, And With Each Passing Moment LyricsDay by day, and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,
I've no cause for worry or for fear.
He Whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems best:
Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.

Ev'ry day, the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He Whose Name is Counselor and Pow'r;
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
"As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,"
This the pledge to me He made.

Help me then in ev'ry tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith's sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
E'er to take, as from a father's hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land. Amen.

Hark! The Jubilee Is Sounding LyricsHark! The jubilee is sounding,
Oh, the joyful news is come:
Free salvation is proclaimed
In and thru God's holy son.
Now we have complete redemption
Thru the meek and lowly Lamb;

Refrain: Glory, honor, and salvation,
Christ the Lord is come to reign!

Now let each one cease from wand'ring
Come and follow Christ, the Way,
We shall all receive a blessing
If from Him we do not stray.
Golden moments we've neglected, yet the Lord forgives again;

Come, let's run our race with patience,
Looking unto Christ, the Lord,
Who doth live and reign forever
With His Father and our God.
He is worthy to be praised, He is our exalted King;

Come, dear children, praise your Jesus,
Praise Him, praise him ever more;
May His great love now constrain us So His great name we'll adore.
Oh, then let us join together, His Wondrous name to proclaim.

How Can I, A Lowly Mortal LyricsHow can I, a lowly mortal,
Born an earthling, formed of clay,
Seek to praise the Lord Jehovah,
Who has turned my night to day?
How can such a one of Adam,
Long estranged from God above
Hope to find His blessed favor,
Hope to know His blessed love?

For His eye is far too pure to
Look upon this sinful frame;
His own perfect being never
Can accept my sin and shame.
Oh, that I knew where to seek Him,
Oh, that He may smile on me.
But unless my sin is covered,
Such a joy can never be.

But, Oh, listen, do you hear it?
Do you hear that glad new song?
It is telling how the Savior
Has been sent to claim His own.
Blessed Jesus died to save me,
Save me from the fatal sting.
Now I know that He's my Savior,
Praises to My Lord and King! Amen.

I Will Sing of My Redeemer LyricsI will sing of my Redeemer,
And His wondrous love to me:
On the cruel cross He suffered,
From the curse to set me free.

Refrain: Sing, oh sing, of my Redeemer,
With His blood, He purchased me.
On the cross, He sealed my pardon,
Paid the debt, and made me free.

I will tell the wondrous story,
How my lost estate to save,
In His boundless love and mercy,
He the ransom freely gave.

I will praise my dear Redeemer,
His triumphant power I'll tell,
How the victory He giveth
Over sin, and death, and hell.

I will sing of my Redeemer,
And His heav'nly love to me;
He from death to life has brought me,
Son of God, with Him to be.

It Is Well With My Soul LyricsWhen peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Refrain: It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Tho' Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And has shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin -oh, the bliss of this glorious thought:
My sin, not in part, but the whole
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend,
"Even so," it is well with my soul.

Jesus Shall Reign LyricsJesus shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

To Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown His head;
His Name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.

People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His Name.

Blessings abound where'er He reigns;
The pris'ner leaps to lose his chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.

Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honors to our King;
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen!

Jesus, Thou Art The Sinner's Friend LyricsJesus, Thou art the sinner's Friend;
As such I look to Thee;
Now, in the fullness of Thy love,
O Lord, remember me.

Remember Thy pure word of grace,
Remember Calvary,
Remember all Thy dying groans,
And then remember me.

Thou wondrous Advocate with God,
I yield myself to Thee,
While Thou art sitting on the throne,
O Lord, remember me.

I own I'm guilty, own I'm vile,
Yet Thy salvation's free;
Then, in Thy all-abounding grace,
O Lord, remember me.

Howe'er forsaken or distressed,
Howe'er op-pressed I be,
Howe'er afflicted here on earth,
O Lord, remember me.

And when I close my eyes in death,
And creature helps all flee,
Then, O, my great Redeemer God,
I pray remember me.

Rejoice, the Lord is King! LyricsRejoice, the Lord is King! Your God and King adore;
Mortals give thanks and sing, and triumph ever more;

Lift up the heart, Lift up the voice,
Rejoice aloud, Ye saints, rejoice!

Rejoice, the Savior, reigns, the God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains He took His seat above;

Lift up the heart, Lift up the voice,
Rejoice aloud, Ye saints, rejoice!

His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o'er earth and Heav'n,
The keys of death and hell are to our Jesus giv'n;

Lift up the heart, Lift up the voice,
Rejoice aloud, Ye saints, rejoice!

Stricken, Smitten, And Afflicted LyricsStricken, smitten, and afflicted,
See Him dying on the tree!
'Tis the Christ by man rejected;
Yes, my soul, 'tis He, 'tis He!
'Tis the long expected Prophet,
David's Son, yet David's Lord;
By his Son God now has spoken:
'Tis the true and faithful Word.

Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning,
Was there ever grief like His?
Friends thro' fear His cause disowning,
Foes insulting his distress:
Many hands were raised to wound Him,
None would interpose to save;
But the deepest stroke that pierced Him
Was the stroke that Justice gave.

Ye who think of sin but lightly
Nor suppose the evil great
Here may view its nature rightly,
Here its guilt may estimate.
Mark the sacrifice appointed
See Who bears the awful load
'Tis the Word, the Lord's Anointed,
Son of Man and Son of God.

Here we have a firm foundation,
Here the refuge of the lost;
Christ's the Rock of our salvation,
His the Name of which we boast.
Lamb of God for sinners wounded
Sacrifice to cancel guilt!
None shall ever be confounded
Who on Him their hope have built.

Take My Life, And Let It Be LyricsTake my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.

Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.
Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King.

Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my will, and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne.

Lord, I give my life to Thee, Thine forevermore to be;
Lord, I give my life to Thee, Thine forevermore to be.

The Lord Bless You and Keep You LyricsThe Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord lift His countenance upon you,
And give you peace, and give you peace,
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious unto you, be gracious,
The Lord be gracious, gracious unto you. Amen.

When We All Get To Heaven LyricsSing the wondrous love of Jesus,
Sing His mercy and His grace.
In the mansions bright and blessed
He'll prepare for us a place.

Refrain: When we all get to heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We'll sing and shout the victory!

While we walk the pilgrim pathway,
Clouds will overspread the sky;
But when traveling days are over,
Not a shadow, not a sigh.

Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving every day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.

Onward to the prize before us!
Soon His beauty we'll behold;
Soon the pearly gates will open;
We shall tread the streets of gold.

Where The Soul Never Dies LyricsTo Canaan's land I'm on my way,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
My darkest night will turn to day,
Where the soul (of man) never dies.

Refrain: (Dear friends, there'll be) No sad farewells,
(There'll be) No tear dimmed eyes,
Where all is (peace and joy and) love,
And the soul (of man) never dies.

A rose is blooming there for me,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
And I will spend eternity,
Where the soul (of man) never dies.

A love light beams across the foam,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
It shines to light the shores of home,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;

My life will end in deathless sleep,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
And everlasting joys I'll reap,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;

I'm on my way to that fair land,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
Where there will be no parting hand,
And the soul (of man) never dies.

Wonderful Grace Of Jesus LyricsWonderful grace of Jesus,
Greater than all my sin -
How shall my tongue describe it?
Where shall His praise begin?
Taking away my burden,
Setting my spirit free;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Refrain: Wonderful the matchless grace, (the matchless grace of Jesus,)
Deeper than the mighty rolling sea, (the rolling sea)
Wonderful grace, all sufficient for me, for even me,
Broader than the scope of my transgressions,
Greater far than all my sin and shame!
O magnify the precious Name of Jesus!
Praise His Name!

Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Reaching to save the lost
By it I have been pardoned,
Saved to the uttermost.
Chains have been torn asunder,
Giving me liberty;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Abide With Me

Ah! Holy Jesus, How Hast Thou Offended? LyricsAh! Holy Jesus, How Hast Thou Offended?
Words by: Johann Heermann, Music by: Johann Cruger


Ah, holy Jesus, how hast Thou offended,
That man to judge Thee hath in hate pretended?
By foes derided, by Thine own rejected,
O most afflicted.

Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon Thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone Thee.
'Twas I, Lord, Jesus, I it was denied Thee!
I crucified Thee.

Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered;
The slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered;
For man's atonement, while he nothing heedeth,
God intercedeth.

For me, kind Jesus, was Thy incarnation,
Thy mortal sorrow, and Thy life's oblation;
Thy death of anguish and Thy bitter passion,
For my salvation.

Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay Thee,
I do adore Thee, and will ever pray Thee,
Think on Thy pity and Thy love unswerving,
Not my deserving.

Am I a Soldier of the Cross? LyricsAm I a Soldier of the Cross?
Words by: Isaac Watts, Music by: Austin


Am I a soldier of the cross,
A foll'wer of the Lamb,
And shall I fear to own His cause,
Or blush to speak His Name?

Must I be carried to the skies
On flow'ry beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed through bloody seas?

Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend to grace,
To help me on to God?

Sure I would fight if I would reign;
Increase my courage, Lord.
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy Word.

Thy saints in all this glorious war
Shall conquer, though they die;
They view the triumph from afar,
And seize it with their eye.

When that illustrious day shall rise,
And all Thy armies shine
In robes of vict'ry through skies,
The glory shall be Thine.

Be Still My Soul LyricsBe Still My Soul

Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to Order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake
to guide the Future as He has the past,
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
all now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul; the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past,
all safe and blessed we shall meet at last. Amen

Blest Be the Tie that Binds LyricsBlest Be the Tie that Binds

Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.

Before our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one
Our comforts and our cares.

We share each other's woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.

When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.

Come Thou Fount LyricsCome Thou Fount

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.

Here I'll raise my Ebenezer;
Hither by Thy help I'll come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

Do Not I Love Thee LyricsDo Not I Love Thee?

Do not I love Thee, Oh my Lord?
Behold my heart and see;
And turn each cursed idol out
that dares to rival Thee!

Do not I love Thee from my heart?
Then let me nothing love;
Dead be my heart to every joy
which Thou dost not approve.

Is not Thy name melodious still
to mine attentive ear;
Doth not each pulse with pleasure beat
my Savior's voice to hear?

Hast Thou a lamb in all Thy flock
I would disdain to feed?
Hast Thou a foe before whose face
I fear Thy cause to plead?

Thou know'st I love Thee, dearest Lord,
but Oh! I long to soar
Far from the sphere of mortal joys,
that I may love Thee more.

Electing Grace LyricsElecting Grace
Words by: J. Matthew Jones, Music by: Carl G. Glaser

All glory to our Sov'reign God,
For His electing grace!
Adopted to be sons of God,
Ere Earth was formed in space.

Does not the potter have the right,
To form what's good to him;
One dish adore, one to destroy,
Based merely on his whim?

We dare not ask "What doest Thou?"
Nor think Thy choice unfair.
Were but one sinner shown Thy grace,
Is love beyond compare.

Rebecca when the twins conceived,
Heard of God's love and hate.
No good nor evil had they done,
Let there be no debate.

Is there unrighteousness with God?
Forbid we think it so.
Were justice only to prevail,
None would His mercy know.

Give glory to our Sov'reign God,
Man's will and work dismiss.
The will of God and work of Christ,
Alone secures our bliss!

God's Promise LyricsGod's Promise
Words by: Annie Johnson Flint, Music by: J. Harvey Daily


God has not promised skies always blue,
Flower strewn pathways all our lives through;
God has not promised sun without rain,
Peace without sorrow, joy without pain.

But God has promised strength as our day,
Rest when we labor, light on the way,
Grace for our trials, help from above,
Unfailing kindness, undying love.

Tho' we have mingled sunshine and rain,
Clouds decked with rainbows, joy mixed with pain,
Let us still trust His mercies right on,
And sing His praises all the day long.

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah LyricsGuide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah!

Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand.
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven,
Feed me till I want no more;
Feed me till I want no more.

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield;
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of deaths, and hell's destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan's side.
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee;
I will ever give to Thee.

Hark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices LyricsHark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices
Words by: Thomas Kelly, Music by: Lowell Mason


Hark, ten thousand harps and voices
Sound the notes of praise above!
Jesus reigns, and Heav'n rejoices,
Jesus reigns, the God of love;
See, He sits on yonder throne;
Jesus rules the world alone.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus rules the world alone.

Jesus, hail! Whose glory brightens
All above, and gives its worth;
Lord of life, Thy smile enlightens,
Cheers, and charms Thy saints on earth;
When we think of love like Thine,
Lord, we own it love divine
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Lord, we own it love divine.

King of glory, reign forever!
Thine an everlasting crown.
Nothing from Thy love shall sever
Those whom Thou hast made Thine own:
Happy objects of Thy grace,
Destined to behold Thy face.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Destined to behold Thy face.

Savior, hasten Thine appearing;
Bring, O bring the glor'ous day,
When, the awful summons bearing,
Heav'n and earth shall pass away;
Then with golden harps we'll sing,
"Glory, glory to our King!"
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
"Glory, glory to our King!"

He Shall Save His People LyricsHe Shall Save His People
Words by: R. H. Pittman, Music by: L. C. Everett


Jesus His name, it shall be called,
The holy angel said,
For "He shall save His people" all
By suff'ring in their stead.

This heav'nly message we believe:
That Christ should come to save,
This precious gospel we receive
And give Him all the praise.

He healed the sick, gave back the dead,
He spake and it was done,
And trusting Him, we need not dread
The cold and silent tomb.

He rose a victor over death,
And back to Heav'n has gone;
But will return again to earth
To take His people home.

O blessed Jesus, my dear Friend,
Alone I look to Thee;
And when my little life shall end,
I pray remember me.

Help Us to Help Each Other LyricsHelp Us to Help Each Other
Words by: Charles Wesley, Music by: Francois H. Barthelemon


Help us to help each other, Lord,
Each other's cross to bear;
Let each His friendly aid afford,
And feel his brother's care.

Help us to build each other up,
Our little stock improve;
Increase our faith, confirm our hope,
And perfect us in love.

Up unto Thee, the living Head,
Let us in all things grow;
Till Thou hast made us free indeed,
And spotless here below.

Then, when the mighty work is wrought,
Receive Thy ready bride;
Give us in heav'n a happy lot
With all the sanctified.

How Tedious And Tasteless The Hours LyricsHow Tedious And Tasteless The Hours

How tedious and tasteless the hours
When Jesus I no longer see;
Sweet prospects, sweet birds and sweet flowers,
Have all lost their sweetness to me;
The midsummer sun shines but dim,
The fields strive in vain to look gay.
But when I am happy in Him,
December's as pleasant as May.

His Name yields the richest perfume,
And sweeter than music His voice;
His presence disperses my gloom,
And makes all within me rejoice.
I should, were He always thus nigh,
Have nothing to wish or to fear;
No mortal as happy as I,
My summer would last all the year.

Content with beholding His face,
My all to His pleasure resigned,
No changes of season or place
Would make any change in my mind:
While blessed with a sense of His love,
A palace a toy would appear;
All prisons would palaces prove,
If Jesus would dwell with me there.

Dear Lord, if indeed I am Thine,
If Thou art my sun and my song,
Say, why do I languish and pine?
And why are my winters so long?
O drive these dark clouds from the sky,
Thy soul cheering presence restore;
Or take me unto Thee on high,
Where winter and clouds are no more.

Hungry And Faint LyricsHungry And Faint

Hungry and faint, and poor,
Behold us, Lord, again
Assembled at thy mercy's door,
Thy bounty to obtain.

Thy word invites us nigh,
Or we must starve indeed;
For We no money have to buy,
No righteousness to plead.

The food our spirits want,
Thy hand alone can give;
O Hear the prayer of faith and grant
That we may eat and live.

I Am A Stranger Here Below LyricsI Am A Stranger Here Below

I am a stranger here below,
And what I am tis hard to know;
I am so vile, so full of sin,
I fear that I'm not born again.

When I experience call to mind,
My understanding is so blind;
All feeling sense seems to be gone,
Which makes me fear that I am wrong.

I find myself out of the way,
My thoughts are often gone astray;
Like one alone I seem to be
Oh! Is there anyone like me?

It's seldom I can ever see
Myself as I would wish to be;
What I desire I can't attain,
From what I hate, I can't refrain.

My nature is so prone to sin,
Which makes my duty so unclean;
That when I count up all the cost,
Without free grace, I know I'm lost.

I Am Not Skilled To Understand LyricsI Am Not Skilled To Understand
Words by: Dora Greenwell. Music by: William J. Kirkpatrick


I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed what God has planned;
I only know at His right hand
Is One who is my Savior!

I take Him at His word indeed:
"Christ died for sinners," this I read;
For in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior!

That He should leave his place on high
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange? so once did I,
Before I knew my Savior!

And oh, that He fulfilled may see
The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be,
As I with my dear Savior!

Yes, living, dying, let me bring my strength,
My solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior!

I Know Whom I Have Believed LyricsI Know Whom I Have Believed
Words by: Dora Greenwell. Music by: William J. Kirkpatrick


I know not why God's wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own.

Refrain: But I know Whom I have believed,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I've committed
Unto Him against that day.

I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word
Wrought peace within my heart.

I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.

I know not what of good or ill
May be reserved for me
Of weary ways or golden days,
Before His face I see.

I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I walk the vale with Him,
Or meet Him in the air.

I Love My Savior, God LyricsI Love My Savior, God


I love my Savior, God,
Be-cause He first loved me;
Be-cause He shed His precious blood
To set my spirit free.

'Twas love my bosom felt,
And made me wipe mine eyes,
When low before His throne I knelt
To pour my feeble cries.

Touched by His Dying love,
I melted into grief,
Swift on the wings of love He moved
And bro't me sweet relief.

With my whole heart I love
The God that loved and bled,
Who left the shining realms above
And suffered in my stead.

Who can forbear to love
A God so good and kind?
Sure He is worthy to be loved
By me and all mankind.

I Must Tell Jesus LyricsI Must Tell Jesus

I must tell Jesus all of my trials;
I cannot bear these burdens alone;
In my distress He kindly will help me;
He ever loves and cares for His own.

I must tell Jesus all of my troubles;
He is a kind, compassionate friend;
If I but ask Him, He will deliver,
Make of my troubles quickly an end.

Tempted and tried, I need a great Savior;
One Who can help my burdens to bear;
I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus;
He all my cares and sorrows will share.

O how the world to evil allures me!
O how my heart is tempted to sin!
I must tell Jesus, and He will help me
Over the world the victory to win.

Chorus
I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

It Is Well With My Soul LyricsIt Is Well With My Soul


When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

Chorus
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Jesus, Before Thy Face I Fall LyricsJesus, Before Thy Face I Fall

Jesus, before Thy face I fall,
My Lord, my life, my hope, my all;
For I have no where else to flee;
No sancturary Lord, but Thee.

In Thee I every glory view,
Of safety, strength, and beauty, too;
Beloved Savior, ever be
A sanctuary, unto me.

Whatever woes and fears betide,
In Thy dear bosom let me hide;
Tis this supports my fainting heart,
That Thou my sancturary art.

Jesus is Our Great Salvation LyricsJesus is Our Great Salvation


(Right-click here to save.)

Jesus is our great salvation,
Worthy of our best esteem;
He has saved his favorite nation;
Christ alone could us redeem.

When involved in sin and ruin,
And no helper there was found,
Jesus our distress was viewing;
Grace did more than sin abound.

Free election known by calling,
Is a privilege divine;
Saints are kept from final falling;
All the glory Lord is thine.

Let us never Lord forget thee;
Make us walk as children here.
We will give thee all the glory,
And rejoice with holy fear.

Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners LyricsJesus! What a Friend for Sinners
Words by: J. Wilbur Chapman, Music by: Rowland H. Prichard


Jesus! what a friend for sinners!
Jesus! lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.

Refrain: Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

Jesus! what a strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my strength, my victory wins.

Jesus! what a help in sorrow!
While the billows over me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my comfort, helps my soul.

Jesus! what a guide and keeper!
While the tempest still is high;
Storms about me, night overtakes me,
He, my pilot, hears my cry.

Joy Unspeakable LyricsJoy Unspeakable

I have found His grace is all complete,
He supplieth ev'ry need;
While I sit and learn at Jesus' feet,
I am free, yes, free indeed.

I have found the pleasure I once craved,
It is joy and peace within;
What a wondrous blessing! I am saved
From the awful gulf of sin.

I have found that hope so bright and clear,
Living in the realm of grace;
Oh, the Savior's presence is so near,
I can see His smiling face.

I have found the joy no tongue can tell,
How its waves of glory roll!
It is like a great o'erflowing well,
Springing up within my soul.

It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Full of glory, full of glory,
It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Oh, the half has never yet been told.

Like A River Glorious LyricsLike A River Glorious

Like a river glorious, is God's perfect peace,
Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
Perfect, yet it floweth, fuller every day,
Perfect, yet it groweth, deeper all the way.

Every joy or trial falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
We may trust Him fully all for us to do.
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.

Chorus
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.
Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.

Lord, How Delightful LyricsLord, How Delightful
Words by: Isaac Watts, Music by: L. O. Emerson


Lord, how delightful 'tis to see
A whole assembly worship Thee;
At once they sing, at once they pray,
They hear of heav'n and learn the way.

I have been there, and still would go,
'Tis like a little heav'n below;
Not all that hell or sin can say
Shalt tempt me to forget this day.

O write upon my mem'ry, Lord,
The text and doctrine of Thy word,
That I may break Thy laws no more,
But love Thee better than before.

With tho'ts of Christ and things divine
Fill up this foolish heart of mine,
That hoping pardon thru His blood,
I may lie down and wake with God.

Marvelous Grace of Our Loving Lord LyricsMarvelous Grace of Our Loving Lord
Words by: Julia H. Johnston, Music by: Daniel B. Towner


Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary's mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.

Refrain: Grace, grace, God's grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God's grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross.

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
Whiter than snow you may be today.

My Soul, Be On Thy Guard LyricsMy Soul, Be On Thy Guard

My soul, be on thy guard;
Ten thousand foes arise;
The hosts of sin are pressing hard
To draw thee from the skies.

O watch, and fight, and pray;
The battle ne'er give o'er;
Renew it boldly every day,
And help divine implore.

Ne'er think the victory won,
Nor lay thine armor down;
The work of faith will not be done,
Till thou obtain the crown.

Fight on, my soul, till death
Shall bring thee to thy God;
He'll take thee, at thy parting breath,
To His divine abode.

Nearer, My God, To Thee LyricsNearer, My God, To Thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

There let the way appear, steps unto Heav'n;
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee.

Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise;
So by my woes to be nearer, my God, to Thee.

Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I'll fly,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

There in my Father's home, safe and at rest,
There in my Savior's love, perfectly blest;
Age after age to be, nearer my God to Thee.

Chorus
Nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer to Thee!
Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams I'd be nearer, my God to Thee.

O For A Heart To Praise My God LyricsO For A Heart To Praise My God

O for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free,
A heart that always feels Thy blood
So freely spilt for me.

A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
My great Redeemer's throne,
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone.

O for a lowly, contrite, heart,
Believing, true and clean,
Which neither life nor death can part
From Him that dwells within.

A heart in every thought renewed
And full of love divine,
Perfect and right and pure and good,
A copy, Lord, of Thine.

O for a Thousand Tongues LyricsO for a Thousand Tongues


(Right-click here to save.)

O for a thousand tongues to sing
my dear Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim
to spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of thy Name.

Jesus! the Name that charms our fears
that bids our sorrows cease;
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life and health and peace.

He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood availed for me.

O That Will Be Glory LyricsO That Will Be Glory
Words and music by: Charles H. Gabriel


When all my labors and trials are o'er,
And I am safe on that beautiful shore,
Just to be near the dear Lord I adore,
Will be eternal glory for me.

Refrain: O that will be glory for me,
Glory for me, glory for me,
When by His grace I shall look on His face,
That will be glory, be glory for me.

When, by the gift of His infinite grace,
I am accorded in Heaven a place,
Just to be there and to look on His face,
Will be eternal glory for me.

Friends will be there I have loved long ago;
Joy like a river around me will flow;
Yet just a smile from my Savior, I know,
Will be eternal glory for me.

O Thou In Whose Presence LyricsO Thou In Whose Presence

O Thou in Whose presence my soul takes delight,
On Whom in affliction I call,
My Comfort by day and my Song in the night,
My Hope, my Salvation, my All!

Where dost Thou, dear Shepherd, resort with Thy sheep,
To feed them in pastures of love?
Say, why in the valley of death should I weep,
Or alone in this wilderness rove?

O why should I wander, an alien from Thee,
Or cry in the desert for bread?
Thy foes will rejoice when my sorrows they see,
And smile at the tears I have shed.

Restore, my dear Savior, the light of Thy face;
Thy soul cheering comfort impart;
And let the sweet tokens of
Pardoning grace Bring joy to my desolate heart.

He looks, and ten thousands of angels rejoice,
And myriads wait for His Word.
He speaks, and eternity, filled with His voice,
Reechoes the praise of the Lord.

On The Mountain's Top Appearing LyricsOn The Mountain's Top Appearing

On the mountain's top appearing,
Lo! the sacred herald stands,
Welcome news to Zion bearing
Zion, long in hostile lands:
Mourning captive, God Himself shall loose thy bands.
Mourning captive, God Himself shall loose thy bands.

Has Thy night been long and mournful?
Have thy friends unfaithful proved?
Have thy foes been proud and scornful,
By thy sighs and tears unmoved?
Cease thy mourning, Zion still is well beloved.
Cease thy mourning, Zion still is well beloved.

God, thy God, will now restore thee;
He Himself appears thy Friend;
All thy foes shall flee before thee;
Here their boasts and triumphs end:
Great deliverance Zion's King will surely send.
Great deliverance Zion's King will surely send.

Peace and joy shall now attend thee;
All thy warfare now be past;
God thy Savior will defend thee;
Victory is thine at last:
All thy conflicts end in everlasting rest.
All thy conflicts end in everlasting rest.

One There is Above All Others

Praise the Savior, Ye Who Know Him! LyricsPraise the Savior, Ye Who Know Him!
Words by: Thomas Kelly, Music by: Amarick Hall


Praise the Savior, ye who know Him!
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
All we are and have.

Jesus is the Name that charms us,
He for conflict fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
While we trust in Him.

Trust in Him, ye saints, forever,
He is faithful, changing never;
Neither force nor guile can sever
Those He loves from Him.

Keep us, Lord, O keep us cleaving
To Thyself, and still believing,
Till the hour of our receiving
Promised joys with Thee.

Then we shall be where we would be,
Then we shall be what we should be,
Things that are not now, nor could be,
Soon shall be our own.

Prepare Me, Gracious God LyricsPrepare Me, Gracious God

Prepare me gracious God, To stand before Thy face;
Thy Spirit must the work perform, For it is all of grace.

In Christ's obedience clothe, And wash me in His blood;
So shall I lift my head with joy, Among the sons of God.

Do Thou my sins subdue, Thy sovereign love make known,
The Spirit of my mind renew, And save me in Thy Son.

Let me attest Thy power, Let me Thy goodness prove,
Till my full soul can hold no more, Of everlasting love.

Show Pity, Lord LyricsShow Pity, Lord
Words by: Isaac Watts, Music: Old Southern Melody


Show pity, Lord, O Lord, forgive,
Let a repenting rebel live:
Are not Thy mercies large and free?
May not a sinner trust in Thee?

My crimes are great, but not surpass
The power and glory of Thy grace:
Great God, Thy nature hath no bound,
So let Thy pard'ning love be found.

Should sudden vengeance seize my breath,
I must pronounce Thee just in death;
And if my soul were sent to hell,
Thy righteous law approves it well.

Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord,
Whose hope, still hov'ring round Thy Word,
Would light on some sweet promise there,
Some sure support against despair.

O Depth of mercy! can it be
That mercy's still reserved for me?
Ah, can my God His wrath forbear,
And me the chief of sinners spare?

Take Time To Be Holy LyricsTake Time To Be Holy

Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God's children, help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.

Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret, with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.

Take time to be holy, let Him be thy Guide;
And run not before Him, whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow, still follow the Lord,
And, looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.

Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each motive beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.

The Child Of Grace LyricsThe Child of Grace

How happy's every child of grace; That feels his sins forgiven!
"This earth," he cries, "is not my place, I seek a place in heaven;"
A country far from mortal site, Yet, Oh! by faith I see,
The land of rest, the saint's delight, A heaven prepared for me.

O what a blessed hope is ours, While here on earth we stay!
We more than taste the heavenly powers, And antedate that day;
We feel the ressurrection near, Our life in Christ concealed,
And with His glorious presence here, Our longing hearts are filled.

When He shall more of heav'n bestow, And bid my soul remove,
And let my trembling spirit go, To meet the God I love,
With rapt'rous awe on Him I'll gaze, Who died to set me free,
And sing and shout redeeming grace in vast eternity.

The Great Redeemer LyricsThe Great Redeemer
Words by: Francis Foster, Music by: Samuel W. Beazley

How I love the great Redeemer
Who is doing so much for me;
With what joy I'll tell the story
Of the love that makes men free.
Till my earthly life is ended,
I will send songs above,
Then beside the crystal sea
More and more my soul shall be
Praising Jesus and His love.

Refrain: He is ev'rything to me to me
He is ev'rything to me,
And ev'rything shall always be;
I will never cease to raise a song of gladness in His praise;
Here, and in the world above,
My soul shall sing of saving love;
Life and light and joy is He,
The precious friend who died for me.

He has purchased my redemption
Rolled my burden of sin away,
And is walking on beside me,
Growing dearer day by day.
That is why I sing His praises
That is why joy is mine,
That is why forevermore
On the everlasting shore
I shall sing of love divine.

Glory be to Him forever!
Endless praises to Christ the Lamb!
He has filled my life with sunshine,
He has made me what I am.
O that ev'ryone would know Him,
O that all would adore!
O that all would trust the love
Of the mighty Friend above
And be His forever more.

The Lord's Prayer

The Solid Rock LyricsThe Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus' Name.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the vale.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Chorus
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

Thus Far The Lord Has Led Me On LyricsThus Far The Lord Has Led Me On

Thus far the Lord hath led me on,
Thus far His power prolongs my days,
And every evening shall make known
Some fresh memorials of His grace.

Much of my time has run to waste,
And I, perhaps, am near my home;
But He forgives my follies past,
And gives me strength for days to come.

In vain the sons of earth or hell
Tell me a thousand frightful things
My God in safety makes me dwell
Beneath the shadow of His wings.

I lay my body down to sleep;
Peace is the pillow for my head;
While well appointed angels keep
Their watchful stations round my bed.

Trust And Obey LyricsTrust And Obey

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.

But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we'll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.

Chorus
Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

We're Marching To Zion LyricsWe're Marching To Zion

Come, we that love the Lord, And let our joys be known,
Join in a song with sweet accord, Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne, And thus surround the throne.

Let those refuse to sing Who never knew our God;
But children of the heavenly King, But children of the heavenly King,
May speak their joys abroad, May speak their joys abroad.

The hill of Zion yields A thousand sacred sweets
Before we reach the heavenly fields, before we reach the heavenly fields,
Or walk the golden streets, Or walk the golden streets.

Then let our songs abound, And every tear be dry;
We're Marching thru Immanuel's ground, We're marching thru Immanuel's ground,
To fairer worlds on high, To fairer worlds on high.

Chorus
We're marching to Zion, Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're Marching upward to Zion, The beautiful city of God.

What Empty Things LyricsWhat Empty Things
Music by: George Allen


What empty things are all the skies,
And this inferior clod!
There's nothing here deserves my joys,
There's nothing like my God.

How vain a toy is glitt'ring wealth
If once compared to Thee;
Or what's my safety or my health,
Or all my friends to me?

Were I possessor pf the earth,
And called the stars my own,
Without Thy graces and Thyself,
I were a wretch undone.

Let others stretch their arms like seas,
And grasp in all the shore,
Grant me the visits of Thy face,
And I desire no more.

What Shall I Render? LyricsWhat Shall I Render?
Words by: Isaac Watts, Music by: B. F. White


What shall I render to my God
For all His kindness shown?
My feet shall visit Thine abode,
My songs address Thy throne.

Among the saints that fill Thine house
My off'rings shall be paid;
There shall my zeal perform the vows
My soul in anguish made.

How happy all Thy servants are!
How great Thy grace to me!
My life, which thou hast made Thy care,
Lord, I devote to Thee.

Now I am Thine, forever Thine,
Nor shall my purpose move
Thy hand hath loosed my bonds of pain,
And bound me with Thy love.

What Wondrous Love LyricsWhat Wondrous Love
Music: Old English Tune


What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down beneath God's righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

Ye winged seraph fly, bear the news, bear the news
Ye winged seraph fly, like comets thru the sky,
Fill vast eternity with the news, with the news.
Fill vast eternity with the news.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great "I Am";
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

Ye friends of Zion's King, join the praise, join the praise;
Ye friends of Zion's King, With harps and voices sing,
And strike each tuneful string in His praise, in His praise,
And strike each tuneful string in His praise.

When Thou My Righteous Judge LyricsWhen Thou My Righteous Judge
Words by: Countess Selina Shirley


When Thou, my righteous Judge shall come
To fetch Thy ransomed people home,
To fetch Thy ransomed people home,
Shall I among them stand?
Shall such a worthless worm as I,
Who sometimes am afraid to die,
Who sometimes am afraid to die,
Be found at Thy right hand?

I love to meet among them now,
Before Thy gracious feet to bow,
Before Thy gracious feet to bow,
Though vilest of them all:
But can I bear the piercing thought?
What if my name should be left out,
What if my name should be left out,
When Thou for them shalt call?

Prevent, prevent it by Thy grace;
Be Thou dear Lord, my hiding place,
Be Thou dear Lord, my hiding place,
In this accepted day;
Thy pardoning voice oh let me hear,
To still my unbelieving fear,
To still my unbelieving fear,
And grant me faith, I pray.

Let me among Thy saints be found
Whene'er th'archangel's trump shall sound,
Whene'er th'archangel's trump shall sound,
To see Thy smiling face;
Then loud among the crowd I'll sing,
While heaven's resounding mansions ring,
While heaven's resounding mansions ring,
With shouts of sovereign grace.

Wonderful Grace of Jesus LyricsWonderful Grace of Jesus
Words and Music by: Haldor Lillenas


Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Greater than all my sin -
How shall my tongue describe it?
Where shall His praise begin?
Taking away my burden,
Setting my spirit free;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Refrain Wonderful the matchless grace, the matchless grace of Jesus,
Deeper than the mighty rolling sea, the rolling sea!
Wonderful grace, all sufficient for me, for even me!
Broader than the scope of my transgressions,
Greater far than all my sin and shame!
O magnify the precious Name of Jesus!
Praise His Name!

Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Reaching to save the lost -
By it I have been pardoned,
Saved to the uttermost.
Chains have been torn asunder,
Giving me liberty;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Reaching the most defiled -
By its transforming power
Making him God's dear child,
Purchasing peace and heaven
For all eternity;
And the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
