Come To The Savior

Lyrics and Music: George F. Root

Come to the Savior, make no delay;
Here in His Word He has shown us the way;
Here in our midst He’s standing today,
Tenderly saying, “Come!”

Refrain:
Joyful, joyful will the meeting be,
When from sin our hearts are pure and free;
And we shall gather, Savior, with Thee,
In our eternal home.

“Suffer the children!” oh, hear His voice!
Let ev’ry heart leap forth and rejoice;
And let us freely make Him our choice;
Do not delay, but come.

Think once again, He’s with us today;
Heed now His blest command, and obey;
Hear now His accents tenderly say,
“Will you, My children, come?”

This is an original hymn written by Pastor Koshy from Gethsemane BP Church. The phrase “The Holy of Israel” occurs many times in the book of Isaiah. Special thanks to Pastor Koshy for the evening classes on the book of Isaiah.

Lyrics and Music: Prabhudas Koshy

The Holy One of Israel, Our Re-dee-mer!
The Mighty God, Immanuel, Our De-li-vrer!
We, Thy people come, with the songs of praise,
Unto Thy name full of truth and grace.
Glory to the Lord, who forgives our sin!
Glory to the Lord, who saves us from ruin.
Glory to the Lord, who forgives our sin!
Glory to the Lord, who saves us from ruin.

The Cre-a-tor of e-v’ry thing, Our Blessed Lord!
The Soverign God, the El shaddai, Our ‘ternal God.
We, Thy children come, to exalt Thy name,
Above all names, we Thy name proclaim.
Glory to the Lord, who made us from the dust!
Glory to the Lord, whose name we ever trust!
Glory to the Lord, who made us from the dust!
Glory to the Lord, whose name we ever trust!

This is a catchy children’s hymn with a nice marching tempo.  Miss Havergal wrote this hymn based on 1 Chronicles 12:18. Read more about this hymn at http://bit.ly/1rsz3o.

Lyrics: Frances R. Havergal
Music: C. Luise Reichardt

Who is on the Lord’s side? Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers, other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side? Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side? Who for Him will go?
By Thy call of mercy, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Not for weight of glory, nor for crown and palm,
Enter we the army, raise the warrior psalm;
But for love that claimeth lives for whom He died:
He whom Jesus nameth must be on His side.
By Thy love constraining, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Jesus, Thou hast bought us, not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own life blood, for Thy diadem;
With Thy blessing filling each who comes to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing, Thou hast made us free.
By Thy grand redemption, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Fierce may be the conflict, strong may be the foe,
But the King’s own army none can overthrow;
’Round His standard ranging, victory is secure,
For His truth unchanging makes the triumph sure.
Joyfully enlisting, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Dare To Be A Daniel

Here’s another famous Sunday School song. It was written by Philip P. Bliss for his Sunday school class at the First Con­gregational Church of Chicago, Illinois. Did you know that this hymn, along with “Hold The Fort” were prohibited by the Sultan from use in Turkey? (Sankey, Pg. 134)

Lyrics and Music: Philip P. Bliss

Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding God’s command,
Honor them, the faithful few!
All hail to Daniel’s band!

Refrain:
Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.

Many mighty men are lost
Daring not to stand,
Who for God had been a host
By joining Daniel’s band.

Many giants, great and tall,
Stalking through the land,
Headlong to the earth would fall,
If met by Daniel’s band.

Hold the Gospel banner high!
On to vict’ry grand!
Satan and his hosts defy,
And shout for Daniel’s band.

This is another children’s chorus which is based on Ps 118:24 “This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

It is sung by Preacher Nathan in both English and Tamil. I hope you enjoy this rendition. Piano is played by Daniel Sim.

Lyrics and Music: Traditional

This is the day (this is the day),
That the Lord hath made (that the Lord hath made),
I will rejoice (I will rejoice),
And be glad in it (and be glad in it)
This is the day that the Lord hath made,
I will rejoice and be glad in it!
This is the day (this is the day),
That the Lord hath made.
