Hymns

August 1, 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.

 

STAND UP FOR JESUS #441
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. (1 Cor 16:13)

1. Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross;
lift high His royal banner, it must not suffer loss.
From vict’ry unto vict’ry His army shall He lead,
till ev’ry foe is vanquished and Christ is Lord indeed.

2. Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the trumpet call obey;
forth to the mighty conflict, in this His glorious day.
Ye that are men, now serve Him against unnumbered foes;
let courage rise with danger and strength to strength oppose.

3. Stand up, stand up for Jesus, stand in His strength alone;
the arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armor, each piece put on with prayer;
where duty calls or danger, be never wanting there.

4. Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the strife will not be long;
this day the noise of battle, the next, the victor’s song.
To him who overcometh a crown of life shall be;
he, with the King of glory, shall reign eternally.

 

SINCE I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED #511
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
(Eph 4:30)

1. I have a song I love to sing, since I have been redeemed,
of my Redeemer, Savior King, since I have been redeemed.

REFRAIN
Since I have been redeemed,
since I have been redeemed I will glory in His name;
since I have been redeemed,
I will glory in my Savior’s name.

2. I have a Christ who satisfies, since I have been redeemed,
to do His will my highest prize, since I have been redeemed. [To REFRAIN]

3. I have a witness bright and clear, since I have been redeemed,
dispelling ev’ry doubt and fear, since I have been redeemed. [To REFRAIN]

4. I have a home prepared for me, since I have been redeemed,
where I shall dwell eternally, since I have been redeemed. [To REFRAIN to end]

 

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS #322
Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation,
I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you
to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:3)

1. Faith of our fathers, living still, in spite of dungeon, fire and sword;
O how our hearts beat high with joy whene’er we hear that glorious Word!
Faith of our fathers, holy faith, we will be true to Thee till death.

2. Faith of our mothers, we will love both friend and foe in all our strife;
and preach Thee, too, as love knows how, by kindly words and virtuous life.
Faith of our mothers, holy faith, we will be true to Thee till death.

3. Faith of the martyrs, who, though bound were still in heart and conscience true.
How blest would be their children’s fate, if they, like them, should live for You!
Faith of the martyrs, holy faith, we will be true to Thee till death.

4. Faith of our fathers, we will strive to win all nations unto Thee;
and through the truth that comes from God, the earth shall then be truly free.
Faith of our fathers, holy faith, we will be true to Thee till death.

 

DOXOLOGY #622
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!
(Ps 150:6)

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;
praise Him, all creatures here below;
praise Him above, ye, heav’nly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. AMEN.

 

A CHILD OF THE KING #403 (Afternoon Study)
“and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ,
if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”
(Rom 8:17)

1. My Father is rich in houses and lands,
He holdeth the wealth of the world in His hands!
Of rubies and diamonds, of silver and gold,
His coffers are full, He has riches untold.

REFRAIN
I’m a child of the King, a child of the King:
With Jesus my Savior, I’m a child of the King.

2. My Father’s own Son, the Savior of men,
once wandered on earth as the poorest of them;
but now He is reigning forever on high,
and will give me a home in heav’n by and by. [To REFRAIN]

3. I once was an outcast stranger on earth,
a sinner by choice, and an alien by birth;
but I’ve been adopted, my name’s written down,
an heir to a mansion, a robe, and a crown. [To REFRAIN]

4. A tent or a cottage, why should I care?
They’re building a palace for me over there;
though exiled from home, yet still may I sing:
All glory to God, I’m a child of the King. [To REFRAIN to end]
