Over the last few weeks, I have been involved in helping to compile a hymn book entitled “PTPM Pilgrimage Singspiration”. This is a bilingual song book (English and Chinese). If you are interested in getting a copy or in going for a Holy Land Study Tour, contact Rev Paul Lee Tan at http://tanbible.com

Lyrics: Ida A. Guirey
Music: Charles H. Gabriel

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom within my heart;
Beauties of Thy truth and holiness impart,
That where’er I go my life may shed abroad
Fragrance of the knowledge of the love of God.

Refrain:
Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, sweeter far to see
Than the fairest flow’rs of earth could ever be,
Fill my life completely, adding more each day
Of Thy grace divine and purity, I pray.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, balm for every ill,
May Thy tender mercy’s healing pow’r distil
For afflicted souls of weary burdened men,
Giving needy mortals health and hope again.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom forevermore;
Be Thy glory seen on earth from shore to shore,
Till the nations own Thy sov’reignty complete,
Lay their honors down and worship at Thy feet.

I Know The Lord Will Make A Way For Me

Here’s a short but well loved chorus.

Lyrics: Anonymous

I know the Lord will make a way for me,
I know the Lord will make a way for me,
If I look to Him and pray,
Darkest night will turn to day,
I know the Lord will make a way for me.

Come And Dine

Lyrics and Music: Charles B. Widmeyer

Jesus has a table spread
Where the saints of God are fed,
He invites His chosen people, “Come and dine”;
With His manna He doth feed
And supplies our every need:
Oh, ’tis sweet to sup with Jesus all the time!

Refrain:
“Come and dine,” the Master calleth, “Come and dine”;
You may feast at Jesus’ table all the time;
He Who fed the multitude, turned the water into wine,
To the hungry calleth now, “Come and dine.”

The disciples came to land,
Thus obeying Christ’s command,
For the Master called unto them, “Come and dine”;
There they found their heart’s desire,
Bread and fish upon the fire;
Thus He satisfies the hungry every time.

Soon the Lamb will take His bride
To be ever at His side,
All the host of heaven will assembled be;
Oh, ’twill be a glorious sight,
All the saints in spotless white;
And with Jesus they will feast eternally.

O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing

Lyrics: Charles Wesley
Music: AZMON

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’Tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.

Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

If God Be For Us

This is such an encouraging hymn! The chorus is based on Rom 8:31 – If God be for us, who can be against us? I especially like the last stanza which is based on John 10:29 – My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. Indeed we have eternal security with Christ.

Lyrics and Music: James McGranahan

Rejoice in the Lord! Oh, let His mercy cheer;
He sunders the bands that enthrall;
Redeemed by His blood, why should we ever fear,
Since Jesus is our all in all?

Refrain:
If God be for us, if God be for us,
if God be for us,
Who can be against us?
Who? who? who?
Who can be against us, against us?

Be strong in the Lord! rejoicing in His might,
Be loyal and true day by day;
When evils assail, be valiant for the right,
And He will be our strength and stay.

Confide in His Word, His promises so sure;
In Christ they are yea and amen;
Though earth pass away, they ever shall endure,
’Tis written o’er and o’er again.

Abide in the Lord, secure in His control,
’Tis life everlasting begun;
To pluck from His hand the weakest, trembling soul,
It never, never can be done!
