Hymns

Aug 2, 2020: 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.

 

STAND UP FOR JESUS #441
You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 2:3)

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 he shall lead,
’til 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 pray’r;
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 that overcometh a crown of life shall be;
he with the King of glory shall reign eternally.

 

SINCE I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED #511
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You,
And my soul, which You have redeemed. (Ps 71:23)

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

Chorus:
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 Chorus]

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 Chorus]

4. I have a home prepared for me,
Since I have been redeemed,
Where I shall dwell eternally,
Since I have been redeemed. [To Chorus to end]

 

A CHILD OF THE KING #403
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
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 8:16-17)

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.

Chorus:
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 pleading our pardon on high,
That we may be His when He comes by and by. [To Chorus]

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 Chorus to end]

 

DOXOLOGY–PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW #622
I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth;
Yes, I will praise Him among the multitude.
(Ps 109:30)

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.

 

ROCK OF AGES #284
And he said: “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
The God of my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn[a] of my salvation,
My stronghold and my refuge;
My Savior, You save me from violence.” (2 Sam 22:2-3)

1. Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

2. Not the labors of my hands 
can fulfill thy law’s demands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.

3. Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.

4. While I draw this fleeting breath, 
when mine eyes shall close in death,
when I soar to worlds unknown,
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.
