Hymns

Nov 22, 2020: Here are the hymns we sang on Sunday morning as we publicly worshipped our Sovereign Lord as a church body.

Use them in your devotions. As you read and reflect upon the Scriptures, sing and make melody in your heart to the Lord! And humbly give thanks to God in prayer for His daily mercy and grace to you.

 

BRETHREN, WE HAVE MET TO WORSHIP #581
Then the LORD said to Moses,
“Behold I will rain bread from heaven for you…” (Ex 16:4)

1. Brethren, we have met to worship and adore the Lord our God;
will you pray with all your power, while we try to preach the Word?
All is vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down;
brethren, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

2. Brethren, poor sinners round you slumb’ring on the brink of woe;
death is coming, hell is moving: can you bear to let them go?
See our fathers and our mothers and our children sinking down;
brethren, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

3. Sisters, will you join and help us? Moses’ sister aided him;
will you help the trembling mourners who are struggling hard with sin?
Tell them all about the Savior: Tell them that He will be found;
sisters, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

4. Let us love our God supremely, let us love each other too;
let us love and pray for sinners till our God makes all things new.
Then He’ll call us home to heaven, at His table we’ll sit down;
Christ will gird Himself and serve us with sweet manna all around.

 

O, FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES TO SING #49 | 4 verses
and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father. (Php 2:11)

1. O for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer’s praise,
the glories of my God and King, the triumphs of His grace!

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

3. 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.

4. He breaks the pow’r of canceled sin, He sets the pris’ner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean; His blood availed for me.

 

MY SAVIOR FIRST OF ALL #554
As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness;
I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness. (Ps 17:15)

1. When my life work is ended and I cross the swelling tide,
when the bright and glor’ous morning I shall see;
I shall know my Redeemer when I reach the other side,
and His smile will be the first to welcome me.

REFRAIN
I shall know Him, I shall know Him,
and redeemed by His side I shall stand;
I shall know Him, I shall know Him,
by the prints of the nails in His hand.

2. O the soul-thrilling rapture when I view His blessed face
and the luster of His kindly beaming eye;
how my full heart will praise Him for the mercy, love and grace
that prepare for me a mansion in the sky. [To REFRAIN]

3. O the dear ones in glory: How they beckon me to come,
and our parting at the river I recall;
to the sweet vales of Eden they will sing my welcome home,
but I long to meet my Savior first of all. [To REFRAIN]

4. Through the gates to the city in a robe of spotless white,
He will lead me where no tears will ever fall;
in the glad song of ages I shall mingle with delight,
but I long to meet my Savior first of all. [To REFRAIN to end]

 

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS #33
Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassion fail not.
They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. (Lam 3:22, 23)

1. Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
there is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not;
as Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

REFRAIN
Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
all I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

2. Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love. [To REFRAIN]

3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guid;
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! [To REFRAIN to end]

 

JESUS, THY BLOOD & RIGHTEOUSNESS #251 (Afternoon Study)
whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness,
because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed. (Rom 3:25)

1. Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness my beauty are, my glor’ous dress;
‘midst flaming worlds, in these arrayed, with joy shall I lift up my head.

2. Bold shall I stand in Thy great day; for who aught to my charge shall lay?
Fully absolved through these I am from sin and fear, from guilt and shame.

3. When from the dust of death I rise to claim my mansion in the skies,
ev’n then this shall be all my plea, Jesus hath lived, hath died, for me.

4. Jesus, be endless praise to Thee, whose boundless mercy hath for me;
for me a full atonement made, and everlasting ransom paid.

5. O let the dead now hear Thy voice; now bid Thy banished ones rejoice;
their beauty this, their glor’ous dress, Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness.

Verse of the Week

2 Cor 12:11
I have become a fool in boasting; you have compelled me. For I ought to have been commended by you; for in nothing was I behind the most eminent apostles, though I am nothing.
