Mar 28, 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.
MY FAITH LOOKS UP TO THEE #417
For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Cor 5:7)
1. My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray, take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day be wholly Thine!
2. May Thy rich grace impart strength to my fainting heart,
my zeal inspire;
as Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee
pure, warm, and changeless be, a living fire!
3. While life’s dark maze I tread and griefs around me spread,
be Thou my guide;
bid darkness turn to day, wipe sorrow’s tears away,
nor let me ever stray from Thee aside.
4. When ends life’s passing dream, when death’s cold, sullen stream
shall o’er me roll,
blest Savior, then, in love, fear and distrust remove;
O lift me safe above, a ransomed soul!
THOU DIDST LEAVE THY THRONE #137
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. (Php 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.
My heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus, when Thou comest and callest for me.
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 REFRAIN 5 to end]
I LOVE THEE #60
I will love You, O LORD, my strength. (Ps 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.
JESUS IS ALL THE WORLD TO ME #534
For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Php 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 fleeting days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend,
beautiful life that has no end;
eternal life, eternal joy;
He’s my Friend.
O CHRIST, OUR HOPE #198 (Afternoon Study)
While we wait for the blessed hope –
the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Tit 2:12-14)
1. O Christ, our hope, our heart’s desire,
redemption’s only spring;
Creator of the world art Thou,
its Savior and its King.
2. How vast the mercy and the love
which laid our sins on Thee,
and led Thee to a cruel death
to set Thy people free.
3. But now the bonds of death are burst,
the ransom has been paid;
and Thou art on Thy Father’s throne
in glorious robes arrayed.
4. O Christ, be Thou our present joy,
our future great reward;
our only glory may it be
to glory in the Lord.
5. All praise to Thee, ascended Lord;
all glory ever be
to Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
through all eternity.
