Hymns

Feb 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.

 

GUIDE ME, O THOU GREAT JEHOVAH #413
The LORD will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
(Isa 58:11)

1. Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
hold me with Thy pow’rful hand.
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven,
feed me till I want no more.
feed me till I want no more!

2. Open now the crystal fountain,
whence the healing stream doth flow;
let the fire and cloudy pillar
lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliv’rer, Strong Deliv’rer,
be Thou still my strength and shield;
be Thou still my strength and shield!

3. When I tread the verge of Jordan,
bid my anxious fears subside;
death of death and hell’s destruction,
land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praise, Songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee,
I will ever give to Thee!

 

HOW GREAT THOU ART #27
You show lovingkindness to thousands, and repay the iniquity of the fathers
into the bosom of their children after them—the Great, the Mighty God,
whose name is the L
ORD of hosts. 19 You are great in counsel and mighty in work,
for Your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men,
to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings.
(Jer 32:18, 19)

1. O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
consider all the worlds Thy hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed.

REFRAIN
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
“How great Thou art, how great Thou art!”
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
“How great Thou art, how great Thou art!”

2. When through the woods and forest glades I wander
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze. [To REFRAIN]

3. And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in,
that on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin. [To REFRAIN]

4. When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
and there proclaim, “My God, how great Thou art!” [To REFRAIN to end]

 

BRING THEM IN #361
“And other sheep I have which are not of this fold:
them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice;
and there will be one flock and one shepherd.”
(Jn 10:16)

1. Hark! ‘Tis the Shepherd’s voice I hear,
out in the desert dark and drear,
calling the sheep who’ve gone astray,
far from the Shepherd’s fold away.

REFRAIN
Bring them in, bring them in,
bring them in from the fields of sin;
bring them in, bring them in,
bring the wand’ring ones to Jesus.

2. Who’ll go and help this Shepherd kind,
help Him the wand’ring ones to find?
Who’ll bring the lost ones to the fold,
where they’ll be sheltered from the cold? [To REFRAIN]

3. Out in the desert hear their cry,
out on the mountains wild and high;
Hark! ‘Tis the Master speaks to thee,
“Go find My sheep where’er they be.” [To REFRAIN to end]

 

WE’RE MARCHING TO ZION #584
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
(Isa 35:10)

1. Come, we that love the Lord, and let our joys be known.
Join in a song with sweet accord, join in a song with sweet accord,
and thus surround the throne, and thus surround the throne.

REFRAIN
We’re marching to Zion, beautiful, beautiful Zion.
We’re marching upward to Zion, the beautiful city of God.

2. Let those who refuse to sing who never knew our God;
but children of the heav’nly King, but children of the heav’nly King
may speak their joys abroad, may speak their joys abroad. [To REFRAIN]

3. The hill of Zion yields a thousand sacred sweets
before we reach the heav’nly fields, before we reach the heav’nly fields
or walk the golden streets, or walk the golden streets. [To REFRAIN]

4. Then let our songs abound, and ev’ry tear be dry.
We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground, we’re marching through Immanuel’s ground
to fairer worlds on high, to fairer worlds on high. [To REFRAIN to end]

Verse of the week

Colossians 3:1, 2

1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
