BLESSED ASSURANCE


BLESSED ASSURANCE

by Fanny J. Crosby & Phoebe P. Knapp

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.

Refrain:
This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
angels descending bring from above
echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

(Refrain)

Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
watching and waiting, looking above,
filled with his goodness, lost in his love.

(Refrain)

Great Is Thy Faithfulness


Great Is Thy Faithfulness

by Thomas O. Chisholm, 1866-1960

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father!
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not; Thy compassions, they fail not:
As thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Chorus: Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
all I have needed Thy hand hath provided--
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
join with all nature in manifold witness
to Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Chorus

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow--
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

He Is My Everything


He Is My Everything

by Dallas Frazier

I long to be His possession
He is my everything
I remember my days of darkness
Without sunshine or sight to lead the way
But a whisper of His voice softly calling
To the arms of my Maker to stay
He is my reason for living,
He is the king of all kings
I long to be His possession,
He is my everything
After the lightning and thunder
After the last bell has rung
I want to bow down before Him
And hear Him say well done
He is my reason for living
He is the king of all kings
I long to be His possession
He is my everything

He Touched Me


He Touched Me

by William Gaither

Shackled by a heavy burden beneath a load of guilt and shame
Then the hand of Jesus touched me and now I am no longer the same

He touched me, yes, he touched me and oh the joy that floods my soul
Something happened and now I know He touched me and made me whole

Since I met the blessed Saviour, since he cleansed and made me whole
I will never cease to praise him, I'll shout it while eternity rolls

He touched me, yes, he touched me and oh the joy the floods my soul
Something happened and now I know He touched me and made me whole

How Great Thou Art


How Great Thou Art

Written by Carl Bobert / Date Written: 1886

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 power throughout the universe displayed

Chorus:
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

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 see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

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

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 then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"

HOW SWEET THE NAME OF JESUS SOUNDS


How Sweet The Name Of Jesus Sounds

Words by John Newton / Music by Alexander Reinagle

How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer's ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.

Dear Name, the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding Place,
My never failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

By Thee my prayers acceptance gain,
Although with sin defiled;
Satan accuses me in vain,
And I am owned a child.

Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
O Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.

Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I'll praise Thee as I ought.

Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath,
And may the music of Thy Name
Refresh my soul in death!

I'D RATHER HAVE JESUS


I'd Rather Have Jesus

Words by Rhea F. Miller, Music by George Beverly Shea

I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
I'd rather be His than have riches untold;
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or lands;
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

Refrain:
Than to be the king of a vast domain,
Or be held in sin's dread sway;
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

I'd rather have Jesus than men's applause;
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide fame;
I'd rather be true to His holy name

He's fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
He's sweeter than honey from out the comb;
He's all that my hungering spirit needs;
I'd rather have Jesus and let Him lead

IN THE GARDEN


In The Garden

by C. Austin Miles

I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses;
And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses.

Chorus:
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own,
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing;
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.

I'd stay in the garden with Himcolor
Though the night around me be falling;
But He bids me go through the voice of woe,
His voice to me is calling.

IT IS NO SECRET


It Is No Secret

Written by Carl Stuart Hamblin

The chimes of time ring out the news, another day is through
Someone slipped and fell, was that someone you?
You may have longed for added strength, your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened, I have news for you

Chorus:
It is no secret what God can do
What He's done for others He'll do for you
With arms wide open He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

There is no night for in his light you'll never walk alone
You'll always feel at home wherever you may roam
There is no power can conquer you while God is on your side
Take him at his promise don't run away and hide

JESUS PAID IT ALL


Jesus Paid It All

Words by Elvina Hall / Music by John T. Grape

I hear the Savior say
Thy strength indeed is small
Child of weakness...watch and pray
Find in me...thine in all

Chorus:
Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sin hath left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone
Can change the leper's spots
And melt the heart of stone

For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim
I'll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calvary's Lamb

And when before thy throne
I stand in HIm complete
Jesus died my soul to save
My lips shall still repeat

Known Only to Him


Known Only to Him

Words & music by Stuart Hamblen

Known only to him are the great hidden secrets
I'll fear not the darkness when my flame shall dim
I know not what the future holds
But I know who holds the future
It's a secret known only to him

In this world of fear and doubt
On my knees I ask the question
Why a lonely, heavy cross I must bear
Then he tells me in my prayer
It's because I am trustworthy
He gives me strength far more than my share

Known only to him are the great hidden secrets
I'll fear not the darkness when my flame shall dim
I know not what the future holds
But I know who holds the future
It's a secret known only to him

LILY OF THE VALLEY


Lily Of The Valley

Written by: Charles William Fry

I have found a friend in Jesus, He's everything to me,
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He's my comfort, in trouble He's my stay;
He tells me every care on Him to roll.

Refrain

He's the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
In temptation He's my strong and mighty tower;
I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
From my heart and now He keeps me by His power.
Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.

Refrain

He will never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
A wall of fire about me, I've nothing now to fear,
From His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
Where the rivers of delight shall ever roll.

MORE HOLINESS GIVE ME


More Holiness Give Me

Written by: Philip Paul Bliss

More holiness give me, more strivings within.
More patience in suffering, more sorrow for sin.
More faith in my Savior, more sense of His care.
More joy in His service, more purpose in prayer.

More gratitude give me, more trust in the Lord.
More zeal for His glory, more hope in His Word.
More tears for His sorrows, more pain at His grief.
More meekness in trial, more praise in relief.

More purity give me, more strength to o'ercome,
More freedom from earth-stains, more longings for home.
More fit for the kingdom, more useful I'd be,
More blessed and holy, more, Savior, like Thee.

Nothing But The Blood


Nothing But The Blood

by Robert Lowry

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

Chorus:
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing, this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

Put Your Hand in the Hand


Put Your Hand In The Hand

by Gene Machellan

Chorus:
Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself then you can look at others differently
By putting your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee

Well every time I look into the Holy Book I want to tremble
When I read about the part where the carpenter cleared the temple
For the buyers and the sellers were no different fellers than what I profess to be
And it causes me to shame to know I'm not the man that I should be

Chorus

Mama taught me how to pray before I reached the age of seven
When I'm down on my knees that's when I'm closest to heaven
Papa lived his life, two kids and wife, you do what you must do
But he showed me enough of what it takes to get me through

Reach Out To Jesus


Reach Out To Jesus

Written by Ralph Carmichael

Is your burden heavy as you bear it all alone?
Does the road you travel harbor dangers yet unknown?
Are you growing weary in the struggle of it all?
Jesus will help you, when on His name you call.

Chorus:
He is always there hearing every prayer faithful and true
Walking by our side in His love we hide, all the day through.
When you get discouraged just remember what to do,
Reach out to Jesus, He's reaching out to you.

Is the life you're living filled with sorrow and despair?
Does the future press you with its worries and its care?
Are you tired and friendless,
Have you almost lost your way?
Jesus will help you, just call on Him today.

Chorus:
He is always there hearing every prayer faithful and true
Walking by our side in His love we hide, all the day through.
When you get discouraged just remember what to do,
Reach out to Jesus, reach out to Jesus,
Reach out to Jesus,
He's reaching out to you.

When the storms of life are raging
Stand by me

Like a ship out on the sea

Stand by me
When I do the best I can
And my friends misunderstand
Thou who never lost a battle
Stand by me

And my friends misunderstand
Thou who never lost a battle

SWING LOW, SWEET CHARIOT


Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

TRADITIONAL

Chorus:
Swing low, Sweet Chariot, Coming for to carry me home;
Swing low, Sweet Chariot, Coming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see, Coming for to carry me home;
A band of angels coming after me, Coming for to carry me home.

If you get to heaven before I do, Coming for to carry me home;
Tell all my friends that I'm coming there too, Coming for to carry me home.

I'm sometimes up and sometimes down, Coming for to carry me home;
But still my soul feels heavenly bound, Coming for to carry me home.

I've never been to heaven, but I've been told, Coming for to carry me home;
That the streets in heaven are paved with gold, Coming for to carry me home.

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS


The Old Rugged Cross

Written by George Bennard

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain

Refrain:
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
'Til my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

Oh that old rugged cross, so despised by the world
Has a wondrous attraction for me
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine
A wondrous beauty I see
For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He'll call me some day to my home far away
Where His glory forever I'll share

When We All Get To Heaven


When We All Get To Heaven

by Eliza E. Hewitt & Emily D. Wilson

Sing the wondrous love of Jesus
Sing His mercy and His grace;
In the mansions bright and blessed,
He'll prepare for us a place.

CHORUS:
When we all get to Heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We'll sing and shout the victory.

While we walk the pilgrim pathway,
Clouds will over spread the sky;
But when trav'ling days are over,
Not a shadow not a sigh.

Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving ev'ry day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.

Onward to the prize before us!
Soon His beauty we'll behold;
Soon the pearly gates will open,
We shall tread the streets of gold.

Who am I


Who Am I

by Charles "Rusty" Goodman

When I think of how He came so far from glory
Came to dwell among the lowly such as I
To suffer shame and such disgrace
On Mount Calvary take my place
Then I ask myself this question, "Who am I?"

Who am I that a King would bleed and die for?
Who am I that He would pray not my will, Thine Lord?
The answer I may never know, why He ever loved me so
But to an old rugged cross He'd go for who am I?

When I'm reminded of His word, I'll leave thee never
If you'll be true I'll give to you life forever
I wonder what I could have done to deserve God's only Son
To fight my battles until they're won for who am I?

Who am I that a King would bleed and die for?
Who am I that He would pray not my will, Thine Lord?
The answer I may never know, why He ever loved me so
But to an old rugged cross He'd go for who am I?
But to an old rugged cross He'd go for who am I?
