Hymns

October 30, 2022: 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.

 

BLESSED BE THE NAME #37
Blessed be His glorious name forever! (Psalm 72:19)

1. O for a thousand tongues to sing, blessed be the name of the Lord!
The glories of my God and King, blessed be the name of the Lord!

REFRAIN
Blessed be the name, blessed be the name, blessed be the name of the Lord!
Blessed be the name, blessed be the name, blessed be the name of the Lord!

2. Jesus, the name that calms my fears, blessed be the name of the Lord!
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears, blessed be the name of the Lord! [To REFRAIN]

3. He breaks the pow’r of canceled sin, blessed be the name of the Lord!
His blood can make the foulest clean, blessed be the name of the Lord! [To REFRAIN]

4. I never shall forget that day, blessed be the name of the Lord!
When Jesus washed my sins away, blessed be the name of the Lord! [To REFRAIN to end]

 

WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS #143
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. (Psalm 29:2)

1. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness,
bow down before Him, His glory proclaim;
gold of obedience and incense of lowliness,
bring and adore Him the Lord is His name.

2. Low at His feet lay Thy burden of carefulness,
high on His heart He will bear it for thee;
comfort thy sorrows and answer thy prayerfulness,
guiding thy steps as may best for thee be.

3. Fear not to enter His courts in the slenderness
of the poor wealth thou wouldst reckon as thine
truth in its beauty, and love in its tenderness,
these are the off’rings to lay on His shrine.

4. These though we bring them in trembling and fearfulness,
He will accept for the name that is dear,
mornings of joy give for ev’nings of tearfulness,
trust for our trembling, and hope for our fear.

5. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness,
bow down before Him, His glory proclaim;
gold of obedience and incense of lowliness,
bring and adore Him the Lord is His name.

 

WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS #171
But what things were gain to me, these I have counted
loss for Christ.
(Philippians 3:7)

1. When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.

2. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
save in the death of Christ, my God;
all the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

3. See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
or thorns compose so rich a crown?

4. Were the whole realm of nature mine,
that were a present far too small;
love so amazing, so divine,
demands my soul, my life, my all.

 

I LOVE THY KINGDOM, LORD #320
Lord, I have loved the habitation of Your house,
and the place where Your glory dwells.
(Psalm 26:8)

1. I love Thy kingdom, Lord,
the house of Thine abode,
the Church our blest Redeemer saved
with His own precious blood.

2. I love Thy Church, O God;
her walls before Thee stand,
dear as the apple of Thine eye,
and graven on Thy hand.

3. For her my tears shall fall,
for her my prayers ascend;
to her my cares and toils be giv’n,
till toils and cares shall end.

4. Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heav’nly ways,
her sweet communion, solemn vows,
her hymns of love and praise.

5. Jesus, Thou Friend divine,
our Savior and our King,
Thy hand from ev’ry snare and foe
shall great deliv’rance bring.

6. Sure as Thy truth shall last,
to Zion shall be giv’n
the brightest glories earth can yield,
and brighter bliss of heav’n.
