O Taste And See That The Lord Is Good

Here’s an original composition by myself. It is a simple chorus that can be sung by children. Hope you like it!

Lyrics and Music: Christopher Tan

O taste and see that the LORD is good,
the LORD is good,
the LORD is good,
O taste and see that the LORD is good,
Blessed is the man that trusteth in Him.

O see and know the riches of Christ,
the riches of Christ,
the riches of Christ,
O see and know the riches of Christ,
Greatness of His power who believe in Him.

O listen and hear that ye may grow,
that ye may grow,
that ye may grow,
O listen and hear that ye may grow,
Hear God’s Word and keep it in your heart.

Be a sweet savour wherever you go,
wherever you go,
wherever you go,
Be a sweet savour wherever you go,
We have the vict’ry through Christ our LORD.

How sweet are thy words unto my taste,
unto my taste,
unto my taste,
How sweet are thy words unto my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth.

Touch not any unclean thing,
unclean thing,
unclean thing,
Touch not any unclean thing, and
I will receive you, saith the LORD.

When They Ring The Golden Bells

Here’s a bright and beautiful hymn. Hope you like it! Do you think music is morally neutral? Read this article to find out - https://oldfaith.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/3june.pdf

Lyrics and Music: Dan­i­el de Mar­belle

There’s a land beyond the river,
That we call the sweet forever,
And we only reach that shore by faith’s decree;
One by one we’ll gain the portals,
There to dwell with the immortals,
When they ring the golden bells for you and me.

Refrain:
Don’t you hear the bells now ringing?
Don’t you hear the angels singing?
’Tis the glory hallelujah Jubilee.
In that far off sweet forever,
Just beyond the shining river,
When they ring the golden bells for you and me.

We shall know no sin or sorrow,
In that haven of tomorrow,
When our barque shall sail beyond the silver sea;
We shall only know the blessing
Of our Father’s sweet caressing,
When they ring the golden bells for you and me.

When our days shall know their number,
And in death we sweetly slumber,
When the King commands the spirit to be free;
Nevermore with anguish laden,
We shall reach that lovely Eden,
When they ring the golden bells for you and me.

He Is Able To Deliver Thee

Lyrics and Music: William A. Ogden

’Tis the grandest theme through the ages rung;
’Tis the grandest theme for a mortal tongue;
’Tis the grandest theme that the world e’er sung,
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

Refrain:
He is able to deliver thee,
He is able to deliver thee;
Though by sin oppressed, go to Him for rest;
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

’Tis the grandest theme in the earth or main;
’Tis the grandest theme for a mortal strain;
’Tis the grandest theme, tell the world again,
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

’Tis the grandest theme, let the tidings roll,
To the guilty heart, to the sinful soul;
Look to God in faith, He will make thee whole,
“Our God is able to deliver thee.”

He Will Hold Me Fast

This hymn has such an amazingly beautiful melody in the pentatonic scale. The message of this hymn is also amazing – Christ will hold us fast (Jn 6:39, Jn 10:28)!

Lyrics: Ada R. Ha­ber­shon
Music: Ro­bert Hark­ness

When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He can hold me fast.

Refrain:
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

I could never keep my hold,
He will hold me fast;
For my love is often cold,
He must hold me fast.

I am precious in His sight,
He will hold me fast;
Those He saves are His delight.
He will hold me fast.

He’ll not let my soul be lost,
Christ will hold me fast;
Bought by Him at such a cost,
He will hold me fast.

According To Thy Gracious Word

Here’s a suitable hymn to be sung for the Lord’s Supper.

Lyrics: James Montgomery
Music: MANOAH

According to Thy gracious word,
In meek humility,
This will I do, my dying Lord,
I will remember Thee.

Thy body, broken for my sake,
My bread from Heaven shall be;
The testamental cup I take,
And thus remember Thee.

Gethsemane can I forget?
Or there Thy conflict see,
Thine agony, and bloody sweat,
And not remember Thee?

When to the cross I turn mine eyes,
And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,
I must remember Thee;

Remember Thee, and all Thy pains
And all Thy love to me;
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,
Will I remember Thee.

And when these failing lips grow dumb
And mind and memory flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me.
