Seek Ye First
(Matthew 6:33)

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness,

And all these things shall be added unto you: Allelu, Alleluia!

Ask, and it shall be given unto you, seek, and ye shall find,

knock, and the door shall be opened unto you; Allelu, Alleluia!

Its My Desire

Itís my desire to be like the Lord. Itís my desire to be like Him.

Itís my desire (to show that I care),

To be a friend (doing my full share)

Till the end (though it is so rare)

Through rain and wind (to kneel in prayer)

Itís my desire (to be a soldier) Yes, it is (for His great cause)

To live my life as He did His.

Itís my desire to be like the Lord. Itís my desire to be like Him.

O Lord, Most Merciful
(Panis angelicus)

O Lord, most merciful; O Lord, most bountiful;

O Lord of heavín and earth, we come to Thee in prayer;

O Lord, most merciful, guard and deliver us;

Father, Father, hold us within Thy care!

Father, Father, hold us within Thy care!

(Repeat from the beginning.)

Precious Lord, Take My Hand
(Isa.41:13)

1. Precious Lord, take my hand, Lead me on, help me standó

I am tired, I am weak, I am worn:

Throí the storm, throí the night, Lead me on to the lightó

Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.

2. When my way grows drear, Precious Lord, linger nearó

When my life is almost gone;

Hear my cry, hear my call, Hold my hand lest I falló

Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.

The Lord Is My Shepherd
(Psalm 23)

1. The Lord is my Shepherd, no want shall I know;

I feed in green pastures, safe-folded I rest;

He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow;

Restores me when wandíring, redeems when oppressed,

Restores my when wandíring, redeems when oppressed.

2. Throí the valley and shadow of death thoí I stray,

Since Thou art my Guardian, no evil I fear;

Thy rod shall defend me, Thy staff be my stay;

No harm can befall with my Comforter near,

No harm can befall with my Comforter near.

3. In the midst of affliction my table is spread;

With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth oíer;

With perfume and oil Thou annointest my head;

O what shall I ask of Thy providence more?

O what shall I ask of Thy providence more?

Heavenly Sunlight

1. Walking in sunlight, all of my journey;

Over the mountains, throí the deep vale;

Jesus has said, "Iíll never forsake you";

Promise divine that never can fail,

Chorus: Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight,

Flooding my soul with glory divine;

Hallelujah, I am rejoicing,

Singing His praises, Jesus is mine

2. In the bright sunlight, ever rejoicing;

Pressing my way to mansions above;

Singing His praises gladly Iím walking,

Walking in sunlight, sunlight of love.

Chorus:

Fairest Lord Jesus

1. Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nations,

O Thou of God, and man the Son,

Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,

Thou my soulís Glory, Joy, and Crown.

2. Fair are the meadows, Fairer still the woodland,

Robed in the blooming garb of spring;

Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,

Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

3. Fair is the sunshine, Fairer still the moonlight,

And all the twinkling starry hosts;

Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer

Than all the angels heaven can boast.

(Beautiful Savior)

4. Beautiful Savior, Lord of all nations,

Son of God and Son of man.

Glory and honor, Praise, adoration.

Now and forevermore be Thine.

My Jesus, I Love Thee

My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine.

For Thee all the follies of sin I resign.

My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou

If ever I loved Thee, Ďtis now.

I love thee, for Thou hast first loved me,

And purchased my pardon on Calvaryís tree

And say, as I ponder the thorns on Thy brow,

If ever I loved Thee, Ďtis now.

I will love Thee in life, I will love thee in death,

And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath,

And say, as I ponder, the crown on Thy brow,

"If ever I loved Thee, Ďtis now."

Bless This House

Bless This house, O Lord, we pray; make it safe by night and day.

Bless these walls, so firm and stout, keeping want and trouble out.

Bless the roof and chimneys tall. Let Thy peace lie over all.

Bless this door, that it may prove ever open to joy and love.

Bless these windows shining bright, letting in Godís heavínly light.

Bless the hearth a blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer.

Bless the folk who dwell within; keep them pure and free from sin;

Bless us all that we may be fit, O Lord, to dwell with Thee.

Bless us all that one day we may dwell, O Lord, with Thee.

Irish Farewell

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

The sunshine warm upon your face,

A breath of spring yours to embrace.

The rains fall soft upon your field,

The gift of love to you revealed,

Until we meet again,

May God hold you, May God hold you,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Give Us This Day

Give us this day to see Thy guiding light above,

Give us this day to share Thy grace with those we love,

Let us tend a bow thatís broken with gentle care,

Be a friend to those who need us,

Just lead us there.

Give us this day to show the way to everyone,

Give us this day, and Thy Commandments shall be done.

Comes the night, the peaceful night,

Silently we pray in thankfulness

For giving us this day.

The Hands Of Jesus

1. Oh, the gentle hands of Jesus,

Nail-scarred hands of calvary.

How they long to lift our burdens,

Long to lead us tenderly

CHORUS:

Gentle nail-scarred hands of Jesus

Long to heal and comfort thee,

Let them bear thine every burden,

Gentle hands of calvary.

2. In the hour of deepest sorrow,

Gentle hands shall touch thy brow.

Reaching down from heavín to comfort,

Turn ye unto Jesus now.

CHORUS

3. Hands Of Jesus healed the leper,

Touched blind eyes and made them see.

Cleaned the stain of guilty sinners,

They can do the same for thee.

CHORUS

Almighty Father, Strong To Save
(Psalm 107:24)

Almight Father, strong to save,

Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,

Who biddíst the might ocean deep

Its own appointed limits keep;

O hear us when we cry to Thee

For those in peril on the sea.

O Trinity of love and power,

Our brethren shield in dangerís hour;

From rock and tempest, fire and foe,

Protect them where so eíer they go;

Thus ever more shall rise to Thee

Glad praise from air and land and sea.

This Love Is Mine

We may sound the depths of all the might oceans;

We may tell the distance to the farthest star.

But the mighty love of God cannot be measured.

Its dimensions are so high, so deep, so far!

CHORUS

This love is mine, I cannot comprehend it!

This love revealed through Christ, my Lord divine.

When on the tree He died for me.

Godís wondrous, glorious, mighty love,

This love is mine

I behold His love in every golden sunset;

I can see it in the beauty of a flower!

And I feel it in my heart since Jesus touched me,

And redeemed me by His wonder-working power

CHORUS

And some day "Iíll thank Him face to face in glory

When with all the millions at His feet I fall.

And through countless ages there Iíll live rejoicing

Sing forever at the wonder of it all!

CHORUS

Softly And Tenderly

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,

Calling for you and for me.

See on the portals Heís waiting and watching,

Watching for you and for me.

CHORUS:

Come home! Come home!

Ye who are weary, come home!

Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling.

Calling, o sinner, come home!

Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading?

Pleading for you and me?

Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,

Mercies for you and for me?

Oh, 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.

America, The Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain,

For purple mountain majesties above Thy fruited plain.

America! America! God shed His grace on thee!

And crown thy good with brotherhood,

From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife,

Who more than self their country loved,

And mercy more than life!

America! America! May God thy gold refine,

Till all success be nobleness,

And every gain divine.

O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years.

Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears!

America! America! God shed His grace on thee!

And crown thy good with brotherhood,

From sea to shining sea!
