March 26, 2023: 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.


For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21)

1. Jesus is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all;
He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall.
When I am sad, to Him I go, no other one can cheer me so;
when I am sad, He makes me glad; He’s my Friend.

2. Jesus is all the world to me, my Friend in trials sore;
I go to Him for blessings, and He gives them o’er and o’er.
He sends the sunshine and the rain, He sends the harvest’s golden grain;
sunshine and rain, harvest of grain; He’s my Friend.

3. Jesus is all the world to me, and true to Him I’ll be;
O how could I this Friend deny, when He’s so true to me?
Following Him I know I’m right, He watches o’er me day and night;
following Him, by day and night; He’s my Friend.

4. Jesus is all the world to me, I want no better Friend;
I trust Him now, I’ll trust Him when life’s fleeing days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend, beautiful life that has no end;
eternal life, eternal joy; He’s my Friend.


And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself
and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
(Philippians 2:8)

1. Thou didst leave Thy throne and Thy kingly crown,
when Thou camest to earth for me;
but in Bethlehem’s home was there found no room
for Thy holy nativity.

O, come to my heart, Lord Jesus, there is room in my heart for Thee.

2. Heaven’s arches rang when the angels sang,
proclaiming Thy royal degree;
but of lowly birth didst Thou come to earth,
and in great humility. [To REFRAIN #1-4]

3. The foxes found rest, and the birds their nest
in the shade of the forest tree;
but Thy couch was the sod, O Thou Son of God,
in the deserts of Galilee. [To REFRAIN #1-4]

4. Thou camest, O Lord, with the living Word
that should set Thy people free;
but with mocking scorn, and with crown of thorn,
they bore Thee to Calvary. [To REFRAIN #1-4]

5. When the heavens shall ring, and the angels sing,
at Thy coming to victory,
let Thy voice call me home, saying “Yet there is room,
there is room at My side for thee.” [To LAST REFRAIN]

My heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus, when Thou comest and callest for me.


I will love Thee, O Lord, my strength. (Psalm 18:1)

1. I love Thee, I love Thee, I love Thee, my Lord;
I love Thee, my Savior, I love Thee, my God;
I love Thee, I love Thee, and that thou dost know;
but how much I love Thee my actions will show.

2. I’m happy, I’m happy, oh, wondrous account!
My joys are immortal, I stand on the mount:
I gaze on my treasure and long to be there,
with Jesus and angels and kindred so dear.

3. O Jesus, my Savior, with Thee I am blest,
my life and salvation, my joy and my rest:
Thy name be my theme, and Thy love be my song;
Thy grace shall inspire both my heart and my tongue.

4. Oh, who’s like my Savior? He’s Salem’s bright King;
He smiles and He loves me and helps me to sing:
I’ll praise Him, I’ll praise Him with notes loud and clear,
while rivers of pleasure my spirit shall cheer.


For I determined not to know anything among you
except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
(1 Cor 2:2)

1. Not I, but Christ, be honored, loved, exalted;
not I, but Christ, be seen, be known, be heard;
not I, but Christ, in ev’ry look and action;
not I, but Christ, in ev’ry thought and word.

2. Not I, but Christ, to gently soothe in sorrow;
not I, but Christ, to wipe the falling tear;
not I, but Christ, to lift the weary burden!
Not I, but Christ, to hush away all fear.

3. Not I, but Christ, in lowly, silent labor;
not I, but Christ, in humble, earnest toil;
Christ, only Christ! No show, no ostentation!
Christ, none but Christ, the gath’rer of the spoil.

4. Christ, only Christ, ere long will fill my vision;
glory excelling, soon, full soon I’ll see;
Christ, only Christ, my ev’ry wish fulfilling;
Christ, only Christ, my All in all to be.


Lead me in Your truth and teach me;
for You are the God of my salvation.
(Psalm 25:5)

1. He 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.

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.

2. 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. [To REFRAIN]

3. Lord, I would clasp Thy hand in mine,
nor ever murmur nor repine,
content whatever lot I see,
since ’tis Thy hand that leadeth me. [To REFRAIN]

4. 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. [To REFRAIN to end]

Scripture Reflection

2 Corinthians 5:6-8

So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
