Songs of faith (part 2)

                       ‘Blessed Assurance’

by Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!

O what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchased of God,

Born of His spirit, washed in His blood.

(Refrain)

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my savior all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,

I in my savior am happy and blest;

Watching and waiting, looking above,

Filled with his goodness, lost in his love.

(Refrain)

                       ‘How Great Thou Art’

by Stuart K. Hine (1899-1989)

O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder

Consider all the worlds thy hands have made,

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

(Refrain)

Then sings my soul, my savior God to thee,

How great thou art, how great thou art!

How great thou art!

              ‘Praise Him, Praise Him’

by Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)

Praise Him! praise Him! Jesus our blessed Redeemer!

Sing, o earth, His wonderful love proclaims!

Hail Him! Hail Him! Highest archangels in glory;

Strength and honor give to His Holy name!

(Refrain)

Praise Him! Praise Him! Tell of His excellent greatness;

Praise Him! Praise Him! Ever in joyful song

Like a shepherd Jesus will guard his children,

In His arms he carries them all day long.

                       ‘Joy to the World’

by Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

Joy to the world;

The Lord is come

Let earth receive her king;

Let every heart prepare Him room,

And heaven and nature sing.

And heaven and nature sing.

Joy to the earth, the savior reigns!

Let men their songs employ,

While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy.

                                ‘Redeemed’

by Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)

Redeemed How I love to proclaim it!

Redeemed by the blood of the lamb;

Redeemed through his infinite mercy,

His child and forever I am.

(Refrain)

Redeemed, redeemed, redeemed by the blood of the lamb

Redeemed, redeemed, His child, and forever I am.

Redeemed I am so happy in Jesus,

No language my rapture can tell;

I know that the light of his presence

With me doth continually dwell.

(Refrain)

                       ‘To God be the Glory’

by Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915)

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.

(Refrain)

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.

                                ‘Trust and Obey’

by John H. Sammis (1846-1919)

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His word,

What a glory He sheds on our way!

While we do His good will, He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at his feet,

Or we’ll walk by his side in the way;

What he says we will do, where he sends we will go,

Never fear only trust and obey.

(Refrain)

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

 

‘Softly and Tenderly Jesus is Calling’

by Will L. Thompson (1847-1909)

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling, calling for you and for me,

See on the portals, He’s watching and waiting,

Waiting for you and for me.

(Refrain)

Come home. Come home! Ye who are weary, come home.

Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

calling, O sinner, come home!

O for the wonderful love He has promised,

Promised for you and for me!

Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,

Pardon for you and for me.

 

‘I Need Thee Every Hour’

by Annie S. Hawks (1836-1918)

I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord;

No tender voice like thine can peace afford.

(Refrain)

I need thee, O I need thee; every hour I need thee,

O bless me now, my savior, I come to thee.

I need thee every hour, stay thou near by;

Temptations lose their power when thou art nigh.

(Refrain)

I need thee every hour, in joy or pain;

Come quickly and abide, or life is vain,

(Refrain)

I need thee every hour, most holy one;

O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son.

(Refrain)
