Hymns

Jan 10, 2021: 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.

 

CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN TODAY #184
“He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee,
saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified,
and the third day rise again.’”
(Lk 24:6, 7)

1. “Christ the Lord is ris’n today,” Al-le-lu-ia!
Sons of men and angels say, Al-le-lu-ia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Al-le-lu-ia!
Sing, ye heav’ns and earth reply, Al-le-lu-ia!

2. Love’s redeeming work is done, Al-le-lu-ia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Al-le-lu-ia!
Death in vain forbids Him rise, Al-le-lu-ia!
Christ has opened paradise, Al-le-lu-ia!

3. Lives again our glorious King, Al-le-lu-ia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Al-le-lu-ia!
Once He died our souls to save, Al-le-lu-ia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Al-le-lu-ia!

4. Soar we now where Christ was led, Al-le-lu-ia!
Following our exalted Head, Al-le-lu-ia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Al-le-lu-ia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Al-le-lu-ia!

 

TEACH ME YOUR WAY, O LORD #476
Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. (Ps 25:4)

1. Teach me Your way, O Lord, teach me Your way!
Your guiding grace afford, teach me Your way!
Help me to walk aright, more by faith, less by sight;
lead me with heav’nly light, teach me Your way!

2. When I am sad at heart, teach me Your way!
When earthly joys depart, teach me Your way!
In hours of loneliness, in times of dire distress,
in failure or success, teach me Your way!

3. When doubts and fears arise, teach me Your way!
When storm clouds fill the skies, teach me Your way!
Shine through the wind and rain, through sorrow, toil and pain;
make now my pathway plain, teach me Your way!

4. Long as my life shall last, teach me Your way!
Where’er my lot be cast, teach me Your way!
Until the race is run, until the journey’s done,
until the crown is won, teach me Your way!

 

BLESSED REDEEMER #179
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us
(for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of
Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive
the promise of the Spirit through faith.
(Gal 3:13)

1. Up Calv’ry’s mountain one dreadful morn,
walked Christ my Savior, weary and worn;
facing for sinners death on the cross,
that He might save them from endless loss.

REFRAIN
Blessed Redeemer! Precious Redeemer!
Seems now I see Him on Calvary’s tree;
wounded and bleeding, for sinners pleading,
blind and unheeding, dying for me.

2. “Father, forgive them,” thus did He pray,
e’en while His life-blood flowed fast away;
praying for sinners while in such woe:
No one but Jesus ever loved so! [To REFRAIN]

3. O how I love Him, Savior and Friend!
How can my praises ever find end?
Through years unnumbered on heaven’s shore,
my tongue shall praise Him forevermore. [To REFRAIN to end]

 

THY WORD HAVE I HID IN MY HEART #232
Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. (Ps 119:11)

1. Thy Word is a lamp to my feet,
a light to my path always,
to guide and to save me from sin,
and show me the heav’nly way.

REFRAIN
Thy Word have I hid in my heart,
that I might not sin against Thee,
that I might not sin, that I might not sin,
Thy Word have I hid in my heart.

2. Forever, O Lord, is Thy Word
established and fixed on high;
Thy faithfulness unto all men
abideth forever nigh. [To REFRAIN]

3. At morning, at noon, and at night
I ever will give Thee praise;
for Thou art my portion, O Lord,
and shall be through all my days! [To REFRAIN]

4. Through Him whom Thy Word hath foretold,
the Savior and Morning Star,
salvation and peace have been brought
to those who have strayed afar. [To REFRAIN to end]

 

REJOICE! THE LORD IS KING #206 (Afternoon Study)
And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
(Rev 19:16)

1. Rejoice, the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore;
mortals give thanks and sin, and triumph evermore;
lift up your heart, lift up your voice, rejoice,
again I say, rejoice!

2. Jesus, the Savior, reigns, the God of truth and love;
when He had purged our stains He took His seat above;
lift up your heart, lift up your voice, rejoice,
again I say, rejoice!

3. 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 your heart, lift up your voice, rejoice,
again I say, rejoice!

4. He sits at God’s right hand till all His foes submit,
and bow to His command, and fall beneath His feet:
lift up your heart, lift up your voice, rejoice,
again I say, rejoice!

5. Rejoice in glorious hope! Jesus the Judge shall come,
and take His servants up to their eternal home.
We soon shall hear th’archangel’s voice;
the trump of God shall sound, rejoice!

Verses of the week

Eph 5:1, 2.
Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
