A Home on High



Beyond the light of setting suns,
Beyond the clouded sky,
Beyond where starlight fades in night,
I have a home on high.

Chorus
A mansion there, not made with hands,
A place prepared for me;
And while God lives, and angels sing,
That home... my home shall be.

Verse 2
Beyond all pain, beyond all care,
Beyond life's mystery,
Beyond the range of time and change,
My home's reserved for me.

Verse 3
Swift-flying worlds, their nights that roll
Far out on seas of light,
Will bring no darkness to my soul;
My home's beyond the night.

Verse 4
My sins and sorrows, strifes and fears,
I bid them all farewell,
High up amid th' eternal years,
With Christ, my Lord, to dwell.

Hope On



Hope on, hope on,
O troubled heart;
If doubts and fears o'er take thee,
Remember this- the Lord hath said,
He never will forsake thee;
Then murmur not, still bear thy lot,
Nor yield to care or sorrow;
Be sure the clouds that frown today,
Will break in smiles tomorrow.

Verse 2
Hope on, hope on,
though dark and deep
The shadows gather o'er thee;
Be not dismayed; thy Saviour holds
The Lamp of life before thee;
And if He will that thou today
Shouldst tread the vale of sorrow,
Be not afraid , but trust and wait;
The sun will shine tomorrow.

Verse 3
Hope on, hope on,
go bravely forth
Through trial and temptation,
Directed by the word of truth.
So full of consolation;
There is a calm for ev'ry storm,
A joy for ev'ry sorrow,
A night from which the soul shall wake
To hail and endless morrow.

Full of love and peace divine,
Bursting from the realms of glory,
Echoing thro' this world of time.

Now He waits for us above.

To the call of love today;
There's no other way to heaven,
Jesus is the only way.

Windows Opened Toward Jerusalem



Do you see the Hebrew captive kneeling,
At morning, noon and night to pray?
In his chamber he remembers Zion,
Tho' in exile far away.

Chorus
Are your windows open toward Jerusalem,
Tho' as captives here a "little while" we stay?
For the coming of the King in His glory,
Are you watching day by day?

Verse 2
Do no fear to tread the fiery furnace,
Nor shrink the lion's den to share;
For the God of Daniel will deliver,
He will send His angel there.

Verse 3
Children of the living God, take courage;
Your great deliverance sweetly sing:
Set your faces toward the hill of Zion,
Thence to hail our coming King!

Wait, and Murmur Not

O troubled heart, there is a home,
Beyond the reach of toil and care;
A home where changes never come;
Who would not fain be resting there?

Chorus
O, wait, meekly wait, and murmur not,
O, wait, meekly wait, and murmur not,
O, wait, O, wait, O, wait, and murmur not.

Verse 2
Yet when bow'd down beneath the load
By heav'n allow'd, thine earthly lot;
Look up! thou'lt reach that blest abode,
Wait, meekly wait, and murmur not.

Verse 3
If in thy path some thorns are found,
O, think who bore them on His brow;
If grief thy sorrowing heart has found,
It reached a holier than thou.

Verse 4
Toil on, nor deem, tho' sore it be,
One sigh unheard, one pray'r forgot;
The day of rest will dawn for thee;
Wait, meekly wait, and murmur not.

As The Deer

As the deer pants for the water, so my soul longs after You.
You alone are my heart's desire, and I long to worship You.

Refrain
You alone are my Strength, my Shield; to You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart's desire, and I long to worship You.

Verse 2
You're my Friend and You are my Brother, even though You are a King.
I love You more than any other, so much more than anything.

Verse 3
I want You more than gold or silver, only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy giver, and the apple of my eye.

Battle Hymn of the Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord,
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.

Refrain
Glory! Glory, hallelujah!
Glory! Glory, hallelujah!
Glory! Glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

Verse 2
I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps;
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps.
His day is marching on.

Verse 3
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never sound retreat,
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgmentseat;
O be swift, my soul, to answer Him; be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

Verse 4
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Verse 5
He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave;
He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave;
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of wrong His slave,
Our God is marching on.

Thank You For Giving to the Lord by Ray Boltz

Dreamed I went to heaven
And you were there with me;
Walked upon the streets of gold
Beside the crystal sea.
Heard the angels singing
Then someone called your name.
Turned and saw a young man
And he was smiling as he came.

He said, "Friend you may not know me now."
And then he said, "But wait,
You used to teach my Sunday School
When I was only eight.
Every week you would say a prayer
Before the class would start.
One day when you said that prayer,
I asked Jesus in my heart."

Thank you for giving to the Lord.
I am a life that was changed.
Thank you for giving to the Lord.
I am so glad you gave.

Verse 2
Then another man stood before you
And said, "Remember the time
A missionary came to your church
And his pictures made you cry.
You didn't have much money,
But you gave it anyway.
Jesus took the gift you gave
And that's why I'm here today."

Thank you for giving to the Lord.
I am a life that was changed.
Thank you for giving to the Lord.
I am so glad you gave.

Verse 3
One by one they came
Far as the eye could see.
Each life somehow touched
By your generosity.
Little things that you had done,
Sacrifices made,
Unnoticed on the earth
In heaven, now proclaimed.

And I know up in heaven
You're not supposed to cry
But I am almost sure
There were tears in your eyes.
As Jesus took your hand
And you stood before the Lord.
He said, "My child, look around you.
Great is your reward."

Thank you for giving to the Lord.
I am a life that was changed.
Thank you for giving to the Lord.
I am so glad you gave.

Repeat chorus

God Moves in a Mysterious Way

God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.

Verse 2
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never-failing skill,
He treasures up His bright designs,
And works His sov'reign will.

Verse 3
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
In blessings on your head.

Verse 4
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.

Verse 5
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding ev'ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flow'r.

Verse 6
Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.

A Debtor to Mercy Alone

A debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing,
Nor fear, with God's righteousness on,
My person and offrings to bring.
The terrors of law and of God
With me can have nothing to do;
My Savior's obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view.

Verse 2
The work which His goodness began,
The arm of His strength will complete;
His promise is Yea and Amen,
And never was forfeited yet.
Things future, nor things that are now,
Not all things below or above,
Can make Him His purpose forego,
Or sever my soul from His love.

Verse 3
My name from the palms of His hands
Eternity will not erase;
Imprest on His heart, it remains
In marks of indelible grace.
Yes! I to the end shall endure,
As sure as the earnest is giv'n;
More happy, but not more secure,
The souls of the blessed in heav'n.

The Matchless Worth

Come, let us sing the matchless worth,
And sweetly sound the glories forth,
Which in the Savior shine:
To God and Christ our praises bring;
The song, with which the heavens ring,
Now let us gladly join,
Now let us gladly join.

Verse 2
How rich the precious blood He spilt,
Our ransom from the dreadful guilt
Of sin against our God.
How perfect is His righteousness,
In which unspotted beauteous dress
His saints have always stood,
His saints have always stood.

Verse 3
Great are the offices He bears,
And bright His character appears,
Exalted on the throne;
In songs of sweet untiring praise,
We would, to everlasting days,
Make all His glories known,
Make all His glories known.

Verse 4
And soon the happy day shall come
When we shall reach our destined home,
And see Him face to face;
Then with our Savior, Master, Friend,
The glad eternity we'll spend,
And celebrate His grace,
And celebrate His grace.

His Loving-Kindness

Awake, my soul, to joyful lays,
And sing thy great Redeemer's praise;
He justly claims a song from me,
His loving-kindness, oh, how free!
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
His loving-kindness, oh, how free!

Verse 2
He saw me ruined by the fall,
Yet loved me not-withstanding all;
He saved me from my lost estate,
His loving-kindness, oh, how great!
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
His loving-kindness, oh, how great!

Verse 3
Tho' num'rous hosts of mighty foes,
Tho' earth and hell my way oppose,
He safely leads my soul along,
His loving-kindness, oh, how strong!
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
His loving-kindness, oh, how strong!

Verse 4
 When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gathered thick and thundered loud,
He near my soul has always stood,
His loving-kindness, oh, how good!
Loving-kindness, loving-kindness,
His loving-kindness, oh, how good!

Go Tell It On the Mountain

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and ev'rywhere;
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born!

Verse 1
While shepherds kept their watching
O'er silent flocks by night,
Behold, throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light.

Verse 2
'Twas in a humble manger
That Jesus Christ was born;
The God of all creation
Became a child that morn.

Verse 3
He came to die for sinners,
To take away our sin;
That we may know salvation,
And be complete in Him.

How Great Our Joy

While by the sheep we watched at night,
Glad tiding brought an angel bright.

In Bethlehem a Child today.

This Child who shall redeem us all.

That ever joy our hearts shall fill.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.

Verse 2
I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th' unbroken song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.

Verse 3
And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth" I said,
"For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men."

Verse 4
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead: nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, goddwill to men."

Verse 5
Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!

Ring the Bells

Ring the bells, ring the bells,
Let the whole world know
Christ was born in Bethlehem
Many years ago.
Born to die that man might live,
Came to earth new life to give,
Born of Mary, born so low,
Many years ago.
God the Father gave His Son,
Gave His own beloved One
To this wicked, sinful earth
To bring mankind His love, new birth:

Refrain
Ring the bells, ring the bells,
Let the whole world know
Christ the Savior lives today
As He did so long ago!

Verse 2
Ring the bells, ring the bells,
What a glorious morn!
Men and angels worship Him,
singing: Christ is born!
Born to die on Calvary,
Born to set His people free,
God Himself in human form,
Tell it! Christ is born,
He has left His royal throne,
He has come to claim His own;
Christ, the Lord, has come to earth;
Go spread the news of Jesus' birth:d

The Birthday of a King

In the little village of Bethlehem, there lay a Child one day,
And the sky was bright with a holy light o'er the place where Jesus lay.

Refrain
Alleluia! O how the angels sang. Alleluia! How it rang!
And the sky was bright with a holy light, 'Twas the birthday of a King.

Verse 2
'Twas a humble birthplace, but O how much God gave to us that day,
From the manger bed what a path has led, what a perfect holy way.

Infant Holy, Infant Lowly

Infant holy, Infant lowly,
For His bed a cattle stall;
Oxen lowing, little knowing
Christ the Babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging, angels singing,
Noels ringing, tidings bringing;
Christ the Babe is Lord of all,
Christ the Babe is Lord of all.

Verse 2
Flocks were sleeping, shepherds keeping
Vigil till the morning new
Saw the glory, heard the story,
Tidings of a gospel true.
Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow,
Praises voicing, greet the morrow;
Christ the Babe was born for you.
Christ the Babe was born for you.

What Child Is This?

What Child is this, Who, laid to rest,
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

Refrain
This, this is Christ, the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Verse 2
Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear: for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

Verse 3
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Come, rich and poor, to own Him;
The King of kings salvation brings;
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Christmas, Alleluia! Amen!

Jesus has come to earth
Alleluia! Amen!
Angels announced His birth
Alleluia! Amen!
Emmanuel has come,
Holy God Three yet One.
Praise to God's Righteous Son

To Bethlehem draw near

Kneeling down to the King,
Present their offering
Fruit of our lips we bring

Sing Christmas joys anew
Alleluia! Amen!
Goodness of God review
Alleluia! Amen!
Messiah's praise we sound,
Peace and goodwill abound,
In Christ true love is found
Alleluia! Amen!

Who is He in Yonder Stall

Who is He in yonder stall,
At Whose feet the shepherds fall?
Who is He in deep distress,
Fasting in the wilderness?

Refrain
"Tis the Lord! O Wondrous story!
"Tis the Lord! the King of glory!
At His feet we humbly fall,
Crown Him! crown Him, Lord of all!

Verse 2
Who is He the people bless
For His words of gentleness?
Who is He to Whom they bring
All the sick and sorrowing?

Verse 3
Who is He that stands and weeps
At the grave where Laz'rus sleeps?

Greet with loud triumphant song?

Verse 4
Lo! at midnight, Who is He
Prays in dark Gethsemane?
Who is He on yonder tree,
Dies in grief and agony?

Verse 5
Who is He that from the grave
Comes to hear and help and save?
Who is He that from His throne
Rules through all the world alone?

Gentle Mary Laid Her Child

Gentle Mary laid her Child
Lowly in a manger;
There He lay, the Undefiled,
To the world a stranger.
Such a Babe in such a place,
Can He be the Savior?
Ask the saved of ev'ry race
Who have found His favor.

Verse 2
Angels sang about His birth,
Wise Men sought and found Him;
Heaven's star shone brightly forth
Glory all around Him.
Shepherds saw the wondrous sight,
Heard the angels singing;
All the plains were lit that night,
All the hills were ringing.

Verse 3
Gentle Mary laid her Child
Lowly in a manger;
He is still the Undefiled,
But no more a stranger.
Son of God of humble birth,
Beautiful the story;
Praise His name in all the earth,
Hail! the King of Glory!

Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

Come, Thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of ev'ry nation,
Joy of ev'ry longing heart.

Verse 2
Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a Child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious Kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne

Thou didst leave Thy throne and Thy kingly crown
When Thou camest to earth for me;
But in Bethlehem's home there was found no room
For Thy holy nativity.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus;
There is room in my heart for Thee!

Verse 2
Heaven's arches rang when the angels sang,
Proclaiming Thy royal decree;
But in lowly birth didst Thou come to earth,
And in great humility.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus;
There is room in my heart for Thee!

Verse 3
The foxes found rest, and the birds their nest
In the shade of the forest tree;
But Thy couch was the sod, O Thou Son of God,
In the deserts of Galilee.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus;
There is room in my heart for Thee!

Verse 4
Thou camest, O Lord, with the living Word
That should set Thy people free;
But with mocking scorn and with crown of thorn
They bore Thee to Calvary.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus;
There is room in my heart for Thee!

Verse 5
When the heavens shall ring, and the angels sing
At Thy coming to victory,
Let Thy voice call me home, saying "Yet there is room,
There is room at My side for thee"
And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus;
When Thou comest and callest for me!

O Holy Night

O holy night! the stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth;
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn'
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
O night... divine... O night when Christ was born!
O night... O holy night, O night divine!

Verse 2
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand;
So led by light of a star so sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.

The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend;
He knows our need, Our weakness is no stranger.
Behold... your King... before Him lowly bend!
Behold... your King... before Him lowly bend!

Verse 3
Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace;
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother,
And in His name all oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name;
Christ is the Lord, O praise His name forever!
His pow'r... and glo... ry evermore proclaim!
His pow'r... and glo... ry evermore proclaim!

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear

Refrain
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

Verse 2
O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them vict'ry o'er the grave.

Verse 3
O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
And drive away the shades of night,
And pierce the clouds and bring us light!

Verse 4
O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And show the path that brings us nigh.

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger,
No crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head;
The stars in the sky
Looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus,
Asleep on the hay.

Verse 2
The cattle are lowing,
The Baby awakes,
But little Lord Jesus,
No crying He makes;
I love Thee, Lord Jesus!
Look down from the sky,
And stay by my cradle,
Till morning is high.

Verse 3
Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever,
And love me, I pray;
Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care,
Prepare us for heaven,
To live with Thee there.

There's a Song in the Air

There's a song in the air! There's a star in the sky!
There's a mother's deep prayer, And a baby's low cry!
And the star rains its fire while the beautiful sing,
For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King!

Verse 2
There's a tumult of joy O'er the wonderful birth,
For the Virgin's sweet boy Is the Lord of the earth.
Ay! the star rains its fire while the beautiful sing,
For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King!

Verse 3
In the light of that star Lie the ages impearled;
And that song from afar Has swept over the world.
Ev'ry hearth is aflame, and the beautiful sing
In the homes of the nations that Jesus is King!

Verse 4
We rejoice in the light, And we echo the song
That comes down thru the night From the heavenly throng.
Ay! we shout to the lovely evangel they bring,
And we greet in His cradle our Savior and King!

Does his successive journeys run;

To pay their homage at His feet;

With ev'ry morning sacrifice.

Their earthly blessings on His name.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Bells are ringing clear!
Sounding forth their happy song, "Jesus Christ is here."

Angels, from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation's story,
Now proclaim Messiah's birth:

Refrain
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Verse 2
Shepherds, in the field abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing;
Yonder shines the infant light:

Verse 3
Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations;
Ye have seen His natal star:

Verse 4
Saints in humble prayer are bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear;

As With Gladness Men of Old

As with gladness men of old
Did the guiding star behold,
As with joy they hailed its light,
Leading onward, beaming bright,
So, most gracious Lord, may we
Evermore be led to Thee.

Verse 2
As with joyful steps they sped
To that lowly manger bed,
There to bend the knee before
Him whom heav'n and earth adore,
So may we, with willing feet,
Ever seek Thy mercy-seat.

Verse 3
As they offered gifts most rare
At that manger rude and bare,
So may we with holy joy,
Pure, and free from sin's alloy,
All our costliest treasures bring,
Christ, to Thee our heav'nly King.

Verse 4
Holy Jesus, ev'ry day
Keep us in the narrow way;
And when earthly things are past,
Bring our ransomed souls at last
Where they need no star to guide,
Where no clouds Thy glory hide.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie;
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by:
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

Verse 2
For Christ is born of Mary;
And gathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wond'ring love.
O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth;
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth.

Verse 3
How silently, how silently,
The wondrous gift is giv'n!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heav'n.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

Verse 4
O holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend on us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in,
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel.

Hark, Hark, My Soul!

Hark, hark, my soul! angelic songs are swelling
O'er earth's green fields and ocean's wave-beat shore;
How sweet the truth those blessed strains are telling
Of that new life when sin shall be no more!

Refrain
Angles of Jesus, angels of light,
Singing to welcome the pilgrims of the night!

Verse 2
Far, far away, like bells at ev'ning pealing,
The voice of Jesus sounds o'er land and sea,
And laden souls by thousands meekly stealing,
Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to Thee.

Verse 3
Onward we go, for still we hear them singing,
"Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come;"
And thro' the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing,
The music of the gospel leads us home.

Verse 4
Angels, sing on, your faithful watches keeping:
Sing us sweet fragments of the songs above:
Till morning's joy shall end the night of weeping,
And life's long shadows break in cloudless love.

Dear Little Stranger

Low in a manger - dear little Stranger,
Jesus, the wonderful Savior, was born;
There was none to receive Him, none to believe Him,
None but the angels were watching that morn.

Chorus
Dear little Stranger, slept in a manger.
No downy pillow under His head;
But with the poor He slumbered secure,
The dear little Babe in His bed.

Verse 2
Angles descending, over Him bending,
Chanted a tender and silent refrain;
Then a wonderful story told of His glory.
Unto the shepherds on Bethlehem's plain.

Verse 3
Dear little Stranger, born in a manger,
Maker and Monarch, and Savior of all;
I will love Thee forever! grieve Thee? no, never!
Thou didst for me make Thy bed in a stall.

We Three Kings of Orient Are

We three kings of Orient are;
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

Refrain
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Verse 2
Born a King on Bethlehem's plain,
Gold I bring to crown Him again,
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.

Verse 3
Frankincense to offer have I,
Incense owns a Deity nigh;
Prayer and praising all men raising,
Worship Him, God on high.

Verse 4
Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom:
Sorr'wing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stonecold tomb.

While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks

While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around,
And glory shone around.

Verse 2
"Fear not," said he; for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind,
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring,
To you and all mankind,
To you and all mankind.

Verse 3
"To you, in David's town, this day
Is born, of David's line,
The Savior, who is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign,
And this shall be the sign:

Verse 4
"The heav'nly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid,
And in a manger laid."

Verse 5
"All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth from heav'n to men
Begin and never cease,
Begin and never cease!"

Silent Night

Silent night! holy night!
All is calm, all is bright,
'Round yon virgin mother and Child!
Holy Infant, so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heaven'ly peace.

Verse 2
Silent night! holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight!
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia;
Christ, the Savior, is born,
Christ, the Savior, is born.

Verse 3
Silent night! holy night!
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.

The First Noel

The first Noel the angle did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.

Refrain
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

Verse 2
And by the light of that same Star,
Three wise men came from country far;
To seek for a King was their intent,
And to follow the Star wherever it went.

Verse 3
This Star drew nigh to the northwest,
O'er Bethlehem it took its rest,
And there it did both stop and stay,
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Verse 4
Then entered in, those wise men three,
Full rev'rently upon their knee,
And offered there in His presence,
Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.

O Come, All Ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,

Christ, the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
O sing, all ye bright hosts of heav'n above;
Glory to God, all glory in the highest.

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning,
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv'n;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn king;
Peace on earth, and mercy mild;
God and sinners reconciled."
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With angelic hosts proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem."

Refrain
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King."

Verse 2
Christ, by highest heav'n adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold Him come,
Offspring of a virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,
Hail th' incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus our Immanuel.

Verse 3
Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace,
Hail the Sun of righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Ris'n with healing in His wings:
Mild He lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die;
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.

Verse 4
Come, Desire of nations, come!
Fix in us Thy humble home:
Rise, the woman's conqu'ring seed,
Bruise in us the serpent's head;
Adam's likeness now efface,
Stamp Thine image in its place:
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in Thy love.

Long Ago the Lilies Faded

Long ago the lilies faded
Which to Jesus seemed so fair,
But the love that bade them blossom
Still is working ev'rywhere.

Verse 2
In the fields, and in the valleys,
By the streams we love so well,
There is greater glory blooming
Than the tongue of man can tell.

Verse 3
Long ago in sacred silence
Died the accents of His prayer;
Still the souls that seek the Father
Find His presence ev'rywhere.

Verse 4
Let us seek Him, still believing
He that worketh round us yet,
Clothing lilies in the meadows,
Will His children ne'er forget.

O Word of God Incarnate

O Word of God incarnate,
O Wisdom from on high,
O Truth unchanged, unchanging,
O Light of our dark sky,
We praise thee for the radiance
That from the hallowed page,
A lantern to our footsteps,
Shines on from age to age.

Verse 2
The Church from her dear Master
Received the gift divine,
And still that light she lifteth
O'er all the earth to shine.
It is the golden casket
Where gens of truth are stored;
It is the heav'n-drawn picture
Of Christ the living Word.

Verse 3
It floateth like a banner
Before God's host unfurled;
It shineth like a beacon
Above the darkling world;
It is the chart and compass
That o'er life's surging sea,
"Mid mists and rocks and darkness,
Still guides, O Christ, to Thee.

Verse 4
O make Thy Church, dear Savior,
A lamp of purest gold,
To bear before the nations
Thy true light as of old!
O teach Thy wand'ring pilgrims
By this their path to trace,
Till, clouds and darkness ended,
They see Thee face to face!

It May Not Be on the Mountain Height

It may not be on the mountain height,
Or over the stormy sea,
It may not be at the battle's front
My Lord will have need of me;
But if, by a still, small voice He calls,
To paths that I do not know,
I'll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in Thine,
I'll go where you want me to go.

Refrain
I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord,
Over mountain, or plain, or sea;
I'll say what you want me to say, dar Lord,
I'll be what you want me to be.

Verse 2
Perhaps today there are loving words
Which Jesus would have me speak;
There may be now in the paths of sin
Some wand'rer whom I should seek;
O Saviour, if Thou wilt be my guide,
Tho' dark and rugged the way,
My voice shall echo the message sweet,
I'll say what you want me to say.

Verse 3
There's surely somewhere a lowly place
In earth's harvest fields so wide,
Where I may labor thro' life's short day
For Jesus, the Crucified;
So trusting my all to Thy tender care,
And knowing Thou lovest me,
I'll do Thy will with a heart sincere,
I'll be what you want me to be.

Give of Your Best to the Master

Give of your best to the Master;
Give of the strength of your youth;

Dauntless was He, young and brave,

Give Him the best that you have,

Give of your best to the Master
Give of the strength of your youth;
Clad in salvation's full armor,

Gave up His glory above:
Laid down His life without murmur,
You from sin's ruin to save;
Give Him your heart's adoration,
Give Him the best that you have,

The Corn is Ripe for Reaping

The corn is ripe for reaping,
Fields glow with ruddy grain;
And we must now be keeping
Our harvest feast again;
With voice of joy and singing,
Our praise to God shall rise,
Who, while the seed was springing,
Rained blessings from the skies.

Verse 2
Thine, Father, is the river
That maketh rich the earth;
Thru Thee, O gracious Giver,
The buried seed had birth:
Thou, on the furrows raining,
Didst make them soft with show'rs.
The thirsty crops maintaining
Thru silent summer hours.

Verse 3
But while our lips are praising,
Our lives to Thee belong;
With them we would be raising
A nobler, sweeter song;
One that may sound forever,
While earth's great harvest speeds,
A song of high endeavor
Rang out in earnest deeds.

My Master Was a Worker

My Master was a worker,
With daily work to do,
And he who would be like Him,
Must be a worker, too;
Then welcome honest labor,
And honest labor's fare,
For where there is a worker
The Master's man is there.

Verse 2
My Master was a comrade,
A trusty friend and true,
And he who would be like Him,
Must be a comrade, too;
In happy hours of singing,
In silent hours of care,
Where goes a loyal comrade,
The Master's man is there.

Verse 3
My Master was a helper,
The woes of life He knew,
And he who would be like him,
Must be a helper, too;
The burden will grow lighter,
If each will take a share,
And where there is a helper,
The Master's man is there.

Verse 4
Then brother, brave and manly,
Together let us be,
For He, who is our Master,
The Man of men was He;
The men who would be like Him
Are wanted ev'rywhere,
And where they love each other,
The Master's men are there.

Blest Are the Pure in Heart

Blest are the pure in heart,
For they shall see our God;
The secret of the Lord is theirs;
Their soul is Christ's abode.

Verse 2
Still to the lowly soul
He doth Himself impart,
And for His temple and His throne
Selects the pure in heart.

Verse 3
Lord, we Thy presence seek,
May ours this blessing be;
Oh! give the pure and lowly heart,
A temple meet for Thee.

And shout for Daniel's Band!

Ev'ry cloud wears a rainbow
If your heart keeps right.

If your heart keeps right,
There's a song of gladness in the darkest night;

Full of toil and care?

There are blossoms of gladness
'Neath the winter's snow,
From the gloom and the darkness

If your heart keeps right.

Brightly Gleams Our Banner

Gladly thus we pray,
And with hearts united
Take our heav'nward way.

Brightly gleams our banner
Pointing to the sky,
Waving wand'rers onward
To their home on high.

Here with hearts rejoicing
See Thy children meet;
Often have we left Thee,
Often gone astray;
Keep us, mighty Savior,
In the narrow way.

All our days direct us
In the way we go;
Lead us on victorious
Over ev'ry foe;
Bid Thine angels shield us
When the storm clouds low'r;
Pardon, Lord, and save us
In the last dread hour.

Verse 4
Then with saints and angels
May we join above,
Off'ring pray'rs and praises
At Thy throne of love;
When the toil is over,
Then come rest and peace;

Songs that never cease.

Never to falter, or faint, or fear;
So would I travel from day to day,
Knowing my Lord is near.

Steady and true as the stars that shine,
So would I keep this heart of mine,
Fit for a gift to my Lord divine'
Steady, steady and true.

Verse 2
Steady and true thro' the sunny days,
Helping my brother to rise and smile;
Scattering joy in some lonely way,
Cheering some heart the while.

Verse 3
Steady and true when the darkness falls,
Following Christ as my beacon light;
Keeping the path where His dear voice calls,
Whether 'tis noon or night.

Comrades of the strong,
Lift we hearts and voices
As we march along;

All in chorus raise!
Theirs the song of triumph,
Ours the song of praise.

Marching with the heroes,
Comrades of the strong,
Lift we hearts and voices
As we march along.

Of the brave and true,

Loyal to our Captain
Like the men of yore,
Marching with the heroes,

You Can Smile

There are many troubles that will burst like bubbles,
There are many shadows that will disappear,
When you learn to meet them, with a smile to greet them,
For a smile is better than a frown or tear.

Chorus
You can smile when you can't say a word,
You can smile when you cannot be hear,
You can smile when its cloudy or fair,
You can smile any time, anywhere.

Verse 2
Tho' the world forsake you, joy will overtake you,
Hope will soon awake you, if you smile today;
Don't parade your sorrow, wait until tomorrow,
For your joy and hope will drive the clouds away.

Verse 3
When the clouds are raining, don't begin complaining,
What the earth is gaining should not make you sad;
Do not be a fretter, smiling is much better,
And a smile will help to make the whole world glad.

Editors note: This is not really a hymn at all, but still included because it was in a hymnal. 

Let the Sunshine In

Do you fear the foe will in the conflict win?
Is it dark without you- darker still within?
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.

Chorus
Let a little sunshine in,
Let a little sunshine in;
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.

Does your faith grow fainter in the cause you love?
Are your prayers unanswered by your God above?
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.

Verse 3
Would you go rejoicing in the upward way,
Knowing naught of darkness, dwelling in the day?
Clear the darkened windows, open wide the door,
Let a little sunshine in.

A triple light was giv'n.

The heav'nly manna falls;
To holy convocation
The silver trumpet calls,
Where gospel light is glowing
With pure and radiant beams,
And living water flowing
With soul-refreshing streams.

When you are discourage, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,

Do not be discourage, God is over all;

Now Sing We a Song For the Harvest

Now sing we a song for the harvest,
Thanksgiving, and honor, and praise,
For all that the bountiful Giver
Hath given to gladden our days;

For grasses of upland and lowland,
For fruits of the garden and field,
For gold which the mine and the prairie
To delver and husbandman yield.

But now we sing deeper and higher,
Of harvests that eye cannot see;
They ripen on mountains of duty,
Are reaped by the brave and the free.

O Thou who are Lord of the harvest,
The Giver who gladdens our days,
Our hearts are forever repeating
Thanksgiving, and honor, and praise.

And, where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me,
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me.

In death's dark vale I fear no ill
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.

Verse 5
And so thru all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.

This is My Father's World

This is my Father's world, And to my list'ning 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.

Verse 2
This is my Father's world, The birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white,
Declare their Maker's praise.
This is my Father's world, He shines in all that's fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass,
He speaks to me ev'rywhere.

Verse 3
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.
