SONG LYRICS:

We Have Come Into His House
We have come into His house and gathered in His name to worship Him.
We have come into His house and gathered in His name to worship Him.
We have come into His house and gathered in His name to worship Christ the Lord.
Worship Him, Christ the Lord.
Let’s forget about ourselves and magnify His name and worship Him.
Let’s forget about ourselves and magnify His name and worship Him.
Let’s forget about ourselves and magnify His name and worship Christ the Lord.
Worship Him, Christ the Lord.
This Is My Father’s World
This is my Father’s world, And to my listening ears,
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is My Father’s world, I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas; His hand the wonders wrought.
This is My Father’s world, O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world, The battle is not done;
Jesus who died shall be satisfied, And earth and heav’n be one.
Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee (10:45 service)
Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, Opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day!
Thou art giving and forgiving, Ever blessing, ever blest,
Wellspring of the joy of living, Ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our brother — All who live in love are Thine;
Teach us how to love each other, Lift us to the joy divine!
More Precious Than Silver
Lord, You are more precious than silver; Lord, You are more costly than gold.
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds, And nothing I desire compares with You.
And who can weigh the value of knowing You?
Who can judge the worth of who You are?
Who can count the blessing of loving You?
Who can say just how great You are?
Lord, You are more precious than silver; Lord, You are more costly than gold.
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds, And nothing I desire compares with You.
