I Hear My Risen Saviour Say

July 26th, 2015
Play

Lyrics: George D. Watson
Music: Herbert G. Tovey

I hear my risen Savior say:
“Follow me, follow me, follow me“;
His voice is calling all the day,
“Follow me, follow me, follow me;
For thee I trod the bitter way,
For thee I gave my life away,
And drank the gall thy debt to pay,
Follow me, follow me, follow me.”

“Though thou hast sinned I’ll pardon thee;
Follow me, follow me, follow me!
From every sin I’ll set thee free;
Follow me, follow me, follow me!
In all thy changing life I’ll be
Thy God, thy guide on land and sea,
Thy bliss through all eternity,
Follow me, follow me, follow me!”

“Come, cast on Me thine every care;
Follow me, follow me, follow me!
Thy heavy load I will upbear;
Follow me, follow me, follow me!
Come, look to Me—dismiss thy fears;
And trust Me through eternal years;
My hand shall wipe away thy tears;
Follow me, follow me, follow me!”

Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise

July 12th, 2015
Play

Lyrics: Walter C. Smith
Music: ST DENIO

Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great Name we praise.

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice, like mountains, high soaring above
Thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.

To all, life Thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish—but naught changeth Thee.

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
But of all Thy rich graces this grace, Lord, impart
Take the veil from our faces, the vile from our heart.

Now Thank We All Our God

June 28th, 2015
Play

Lyrics: Martin Rinkart
Music: Nun Danket

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills, in this world and the next!

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given;
The Son and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven;
The one eternal God, whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

Jesus! The Name High Over All

June 1st, 2015
Play

This version is from Hymns of Grace and Glory, number 31.

Lyrics: Charles Wesley
Music: Scottish Air

Jesus! the Name high over all,
In hell or earth or sky;
Angels and men before it fall,
And devils fear and fly.
Jesus! the Name to sinners dear,
The Name to sinners giv’n;
It scatters all their guilty fear,
It turns their hell to Heav’n.

Jesus! the prisoner’s fetters breaks,
And bruises Satan’s head;
Power into strengthless souls it speaks,
And life into the dead.
O that the world might taste and see
The riches of His grace!
The arms of love that compass me
Would all the world embrace.

His only righteousness I show,
His saving grace proclaim;
’Tis all my business here below
To cry “Behold the Lamb!”
Happy, if with my latest breath
I may but gasp His name;
Preach Him to all, and cry in death,
“Behold, behold the Lamb!”

There is another hymn that can be sung to the same melody. Special thanks to Patricia for suggesting this.
It is entitled “We’re Going Home To Glory Soon” or “We Want You Over There”.
Lyrics: Matilda Bass

We’re going home to glory soon,
To see the City bright,
To walk the golden streets of Heaven,
And bask in God’s own light;
But some of you are out of Christ,
And held by many a snare,—
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you Over There!

The pearly gates will open wide,
And we shall enter in,
To know henceforth no tear or sigh
No sorrow and no sin;
O come with us by Jesus’ blood,
That land is bright and fair,—
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you Over There!

We come to tell the story true
Of love so rich and free,
A crucified and loving Lord
Has grace for you and me:
O, listen to His loving voice,
O part with sin and care,—
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you Over There

We know the time is fleeting fast,
The Lord is near at hand,
O sinner seek the ark of grace,
Its doors wide open stand;
Christ will not always waiting be,
To trifle do not dare,—
We cannot leave you lost and lone,
We want you Over There!

Is My Name Written There?

May 17th, 2015
Play

Lyrics: Mary A. Kidder
Music: Frank M. Davis

Lord, I care not for riches, neither silver nor gold;
I would make sure of Heaven, I would enter the fold.
In the book of Thy kingdom, with its pages so fair,
Tell me, Jesus, my Savior, is my name written there?

Refrain:
Is my name written there,
On the page white and fair?
In the book of Thy kingdom,
Is my name written there?

Lord, my sins they are many, like the sands of the sea,
But Thy blood, O my Savior, is sufficient for me;
For Thy promise is written, in bright letters that glow,
Though your sins be as scarlet, I will make them like snow.

Oh! that beautiful city, with its mansions of light,
With its glorified beings, in pure garments of white;
Where no evil thing cometh to despoil what is fair;
Where the angels are watching, yes, my name’s written there.
