With Harps And With Viols

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:

We Three Kings Of Orient Are

Music and Lyrics: John H. Hopkins

We three kings of Orient are;
Bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

Refrain:
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign.

Frankincense to offer have I;
Incense owns a Deity nigh;
Prayer and praising, voices raising,
Worshiping God on high.

Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorr’wing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone cold tomb.

Glorious now behold Him arise;
King and God and sacrifice;
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Sounds through the earth and skies.

While by the sheep we watched at night,
Glad tidings brought an angel bright.

Refrain:
How great our joy! Great our joy!
Joy, joy, joy! Joy, joy, joy!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!

There shall be born, so He did say,
In Bethlehem a Child today.

There shall the Child lie in a stall,
This Child who shall redeem us all.

This gift of God we’ll cherish well,
That ever joy our hearts shall fill.

The King Of Love My Shepherd Is

Lyrics: Henry W. Baker
Music: Harry Rowe Shelley

The King of love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never,
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever.

Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.

And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.

Here’s an original chorus based on Psalm 19:7-9

Lyrics: Psalm 19:7-9
Music: Janice Lai

The law of the LORD is per-fect,
con-ver-ting the soul;
the tes-ti-mo-ny of the LORD is sure,
mak-ing wise the sim-ple.

The sta-tutes of the LORD are right,
re-joic-ing the heart;
the com-mand-ment of the LORD is pure,
en-light-en-ing the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is clean,
en-du-ring for-ev-er;
the judg-ments of the LORD are true and
right-eous al-to-ge-ther.
