The Bible Stands

August 19th, 2010

Here’s a grand hymn that reminds us about the truth of God’s Word. Also, I’ve come up with a fifth verse based on Ps 12:6-7. What do you think?

The Bible stands every word as silver
In a furnace purified;
Thou shall keep them Lord and preserve them for-ever
From the evil on every side.

Lyrics and Music: Haldor Lillenas

The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
’Mid the raging storms of time;
Its pages burn with the truth eternal,
And they glow with a light sublime.

The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands.

The Bible stands like a mountain towering
Far above the works of men;
Its truth by none ever was refuted,
And destroy it they never can.

The Bible stands and it will forever,
When the world has passed away;
By inspiration it has been given,
All its precepts I will obey.

The Bible stands every test we give it,
For its Author is divine;
By grace alone I expect to live it,
And to prove and to make it mine.

Sweeter As The Years Go By

August 16th, 2010

Here’s a great hymn for birthdays and anniversaries. By the way, today is my birthday and I thank the Lord for yet another year of life.

Lyrics and Music: Leila N. Morris

Of Jesus’ love that sought me, when I was lost in sin;
Of wondrous grace that brought me back to His fold again;
Of heights and depths of mercy, far deeper than the sea,
And higher than the heavens, my theme shall ever be.

Sweeter as the years go by, sweeter as the years go by,
Richer, fuller, deeper, Jesus’ love is sweeter,
Sweeter as the years go by.

He trod in old Judea life’s pathway long ago;
The people thronged about Him, His saving grace to know;
He healed the broken hearted, and caused the blind to see;
And still His great heart yearneth in love for even me.

’Twas wondrous love which led Him for us to suffer loss,
To bear without a murmur the anguish of the cross;
With saints redeemed in glory, let us our voices raise,
Till Heav’n and earth re-echo with our Redeemer’s praise.

Here’s a patriotic hymn written by the late Rev Timothy Tow. Singapore just celebrated its National Day on 9 Aug 2010 and tomorrow will be the opening ceremony for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games.

Special thanks to Jason who introduced me to this hymn.

The music is not original though. See if you can recognize the melody.

Lyrics: Rev Timothy Tow
Music: Samuel A. Ward

O Fairest Isle Of Southern Seas
Thy waters are so blue
Waft by a balmy ocean breeze
Thy land is decked with dew
Singapura! Singapura!
Thou favoured isle of ease
God bless thee yet with thine increase
And peace from year to year

Our fathers came to this green shore
From many climes and lands
They found a richer life in store
Beneath just ruling hands
Singapura! Singapura!
Thou haven of the free
God bless thee yet with thine increase
And peace from year to year

On thee we’ve built a new city
First great port of the world
Let Right prevail and equity
Not by might nor by power
Singapura! Singapura!
So may thy sons serve thee
God bless thee yet with thine increase
And peace from year to year

Today we sail as one nation
Our flag is flying high
May our Captain by wise action
Steer us with Compass nigh
Singapura! Singapura!
Lightship of liberty
Sail on unto prosperity
And peace a thousand years

Savior, More Than Life To Me

August 10th, 2010

Lyrics: Fanny J. Crosby
Music: William H. Doane

Savior, more than life to me,
I am clinging, clinging, close to Thee;
Let Thy precious blood applied,
Keep me ever, ever near Thy side.

Every day, every hour,
Let me feel Thy cleansing power;
May Thy tender love to me
Bind me closer, closer, Lord to Thee.

Through this changing world below,
Lead me gently, gently as I go;
Trusting Thee, I cannot stray,
I can never, never lose my way.

Let me love Thee more and more,
Till this fleeting, fleeting life is o’er;
Till my soul is lost in love,
In a brighter, brighter world above.

I Will Praise Him

August 6th, 2010

I’ve just compiled the hymn lyrics on my website into a virtual hymnal which you can download from http://www.feedbooks.com/userbook/14565

You can download as PDF or use it on your portable ebook readers (ePUB and Kindle formats).

Do let me know if you find this useful. Thanks. God Bless.

Lyrics and Music: Margaret J. Harris

When I saw the cleansing fountain
Open wide for all my sin,
I obeyed the Spirit’s wooing,
When He said, “Wilt thou be clean?”

I will praise Him! I will praise Him!
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;
Give Him glory, all ye people,
For His blood can wash away each stain.

Though the way seems straight and narrow,
All I claimed was swept away;
My ambitions, plans and wishes,
At my feet in ashes lay.

Then God’s fire upon the altar
Of my heart was set aflame;
I shall never cease to praise Him
Glory, glory to His Name!

Blessed be the Name of Jesus!
I’m so glad He took me in;
He’s forgiven my transgressions,
He has cleansed my heart from sin.

Glory, glory to the Father!
Glory, glory to the Son!
Glory, glory to the Spirit!
Glory to the Three in One!
