Hymns

October 10, 2021: Here are the hymns we sang on Sunday morning as we publicly worshiped 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.

 

GLORIOUS IS THY NAME #38
Now therefore, our God, we thank You
and praise Your glorious name.
(1 Chr 29:13)

1. Blessed Savior, we adore Thee,
we Thy love and grace proclaim;
Thou art mighty, Thou art holy,
glorious is Thy matchless name!

REFRAIN
Glo-ri-ous, glo-ri-ous,
glorious is Thy name, O Lord!
Glo-ri-ous, glo-ri-ous,
glorious is Thy name, O Lord!

2. Great Redeemer, Lord and Master,
Light of all eternal days;
let the saints of ev’ry nation
sing Thy just and endless praise! [To REFRAIN]

3. From the throne of heaven’s glory
to the cross of sin and shame;
Thou didst come to die a ransom,
guilty sinners to reclaim! [To REFRAIN]

4. Come, O come, immortal Savior,
come and take Thy royal throne:
come, and reign, and reign forever,
be the kingdom all Thine own! [To REFRAIN to end]

 

JESUS, OUR LORD AND KING #325
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that you present your bodies a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
(Rom 12:1)

1. Jesus, our Lord and King, to You our praises rise;
to You our bodies we present, a living sacrifice.

2. Now justified by grace and made alive to God,
formed for Yourself to show Your praise, we sound Your love abroad.

3. As dead indeed to sin, we rise to walk anew,
henceforth, as not our own, but Yours, we follow only You.

4. Baptized into Your death, with You again we rise,
to newness of a life of faith, to new and endless joys.

 

SPIRIT OF GOD, DESCEND UPON MY HEART #217
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (Gal 5:25)

1. Spirit of God, descend upon my heart;
wean it from earth, through all its pulses move;
stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art,
and make me love Thee as I ought to love.

2. Hast Thou not bid us love Thee, God and King?
All, all Thine own soul, heart, and strength and mind!
I see Thy cross there teach my heart to cling;
O let me seek Thee, and O let me find!

3. Teach me to feel that Thou art always nigh;
teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,
to check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;
teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.

4. Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love,
one holy passion filling all my frame;
the baptism of the heav’n-descended Dove
my heart an altar, and Thy love the flame.

 

I AM HIS, AND HE IS MINE #398
For all things are yours… And you are Christ’s,
and Christ is God’s.
(1 Cor 3:22, 23)

1. Loved with an everlasting love, led by grace that love to know;
gracious Spirit from above, Thou hast taught me it is so!
O this full and perfect peace! O this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease, I am His, and He is mine.
In a love which cannot cease, I am His, and He is mine.

2. Heav’n above is softer blue, earth around is sweeter green!
Something lives in ev’ry hue Christless eyes have never seen:
Birds with gladder songs o’erflow, flow’rs with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know, I am His, and He is mine.
Since I know, as now I know, I am His, and He is mine.

3. Things that once were wild alarms cannot now disturb my rest;
closed in everlasting arms, pillowed on the loving breast.
O to lie forever here, doubt and care and self resign,
While He whispers in my ear, I am His, and He is mine.
While He whispers in my ear, I am His, and He is mine.

4. His forever, only His; who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss Christ can fill the loving heart!
Heav’n and earth may fade and flee, firstborn light in gloom decline;
But while God and I shall be, I am His, and He is mine.
But while God and I shall be, I am His, and He is mine.

 

A NEW NAME IN GLORY #266 (Afternoon Study)
Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you,
but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.
(Lk 10:20)

1. I was once a sinner, but I came
pardon to receive from my Lord.
This was freely given, and I found
that He always kept His Word.

REFRAIN
There’s a new name written down in glory, and it’s mine, O yes, it’s mine!
And the white-robed angels sing the story, “A sinner has come home.”
For there’s a new name written down in glory, and it’s mine, O yes, it’s mine!
With my sins forgiven I am bound for heaven, never more to roam.

2. I was humbly kneeling at the cross,
fearing naught but God’s angry frown,
when the heavens opened and I saw
that my name was written down. [To REFRAIN]

3. In the Book ‘’tis written, “Saved by grace.”
O the joy that came to my soul!
Now I am forgiven, and I know
by the blood I am made whole. [To REFRAIN to end]

Scripture Reflection

1 Peter 5:8, 9

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
