“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.”

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.

I Know My Name Is There

March 1st, 2015
Play

Lyrics: Daniel S. Warner
Music: Barney E. Warren

My name is in the book of Life,
Oh, bless the name of Jesus;
I rise above all doubt and strife,
And read my title clear.

Refrain:
I know, I know,
My name is there;
I know, I know,
My name is written there.

My name once stood with sinners lost,
And bore a painful record;
But by His blood the Savior crossed,
And placed it on His roll.

Yet inward trouble often cast,
A shadow o’er my title;
But now with full salvation blest,
Praise God! it’s ever clear.

While others climb through worldly strife
To carve a name of honor,
High up in heaven’s book of Life,
My name is written there.

With Harps And With Viols

January 18th, 2015
Play

This lovely hymn is based mostly on the Book of Revelation. The chorus is based on Rev 1:5 “..Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,”. Download Notes for Revelation 1 here.

Lyrics: Arthur T. Pierson
Music: Philip P. Bliss

With harps and with viols, there stand a great throng
In the presence of Jesus, and sing this new song:

Refrain:
Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin,
Unto him be the glory for ever. Amen.

All these once were sinners, defiled in his sight,
Now arrayed in pure garments in praise they unite:

He maketh the rebel a priest and a king,
He hath bought us and taught us this new song to sing:

How helpless and hopeless we sinners had been,
If he never had loved us till cleansed from our sin:

Aloud in his praises our voices shall ring,
So that others believing, this new song shall sing:
