“To God Be the Glory” (Hymn 28, 1 & 2)

 
To God be the glory, great things He hath done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life-gate that all may go in.
 
Chorus
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He hath done!
 
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
 
Chorus
 
 
 

“Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners” (Hymn 156, stanzas 1, 3, 5)

 
Jesus! What a friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.
 
Chorus:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
Hallelujah! What a friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.
 
Jesus! What a help in sorrow!
While the billows o’er me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my comfort, helps my soul.
 
Chorus
 
Jesus! I do now receive Him,
More than all in Him I find;
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.
 
Chorus
 
 

 

“He Keeps Me Singing” (Hymn 148, stanzas 1, 2, 5)

 
There’s within my heart a melody,
Jesus whispers sweet and low,
“Fear not, I am with thee, peace be still,”
In all of life’s ebb and flow.
 
Chorus:
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
Sweetest name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.
 
All my life was wrecked by sin and strife,
Discord filled my heart with pain;
Jesus swept across the broken strings,
Stirred the slumb’ring chords again.
 
Chorus
 
Soon He’s coming back to welcome me
Far beyond the starry sky
I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown
I shall reign with Him on high
 
Chorus
 
 

 

“Before the Throne of God Above” (Hymn 448, stanzas 1 & 2)

 
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea;
A great High Priest whose name is Love,
Whoever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart,
I know that while in heav’n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart;
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
 
When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see HIm there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful is counted free;
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me;
To look on Him and pardon me.
