He who pardoned erring Peter never needst thou fear,
He who came to faithless Thomas all thy doubt will clear;
He who let the loved disciple on His bosom rest
Bids thee still, with love as tender, lean upon His breast.
He who mid the raging billows walked upon the sea;
Still can hush our wildest tempest as on Galilee.
He who wept and prayed in anguish in Gethsemane,
Drinks with us each cup of trembling in our agony.
As of old He walked to Emmaus, with them to abide;
So through all lifes way He walketh, ever near our side.
Soon again shall we behold Him, hasten, Lord, the day !
But twill still be this same Jesus as He went away.

And I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze,
And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take in -
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin !
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart !
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art !

Bright shining as the sun,
Weve no less days to sing Gods praise
Than when wed first begun.

And love where love is not returned.
If men will often share their gladness,
If men respond when children cry;
If men can feel each others sadness,
Each others tears attempt to dry.

Just a carpenter with some fishermen.

Love was when Jesus walked in history -

Lovingly He brought a new life thats free;

Love was God nailed to bleed and die
A Em A7 D
To reach and love one such as I.
Love was when God became a man
Down where I could see love that reached to me;
Love was God dying for my sin -
And so trapped was I, my whole world caved in.
Love was when Jesus rose to walk with me -
Lovingly He brought a new life thats free;
Love was God - only He would try
To reach and love one such as I.

Never a sickness that He cannot heal;

But sweatdrops of blood for mine.
In pity angels beheld Him,
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night.
He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calvry,
And suffered and died alone.
When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.

On rocks and hills and mountains call,
Gods love so sure shall still endure,
All measureless and strong :
Redeeming grace to Adams race -
The saints and angels song.

Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies of parchment made,

Would drain the ocean dry,
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Text : F.E. Graeff; Music : J.L. Hall

Does Jesus care when my heart is pained

Too deeply for mirth and song;

As the burdens press, and the cares distress,
C G7 C
And the way grows weary and long ?
Chorus

O yes, He cares - I know He cares !
G D7 G G7
His heart is touched with my grief;
C C7 F Dm
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
C G7 C
I know my Saviour cares.
Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear ?
As the daylight fades into the deep night shades,
Does He care enough to be near ?
Does Jesus care when Ive tried and failed
To resist some temptation strong;
When for my deep grief I find no relief,
Though my tears flow all the night long ?
Does Jesus care when Ive said goodbye
To the dearest on earth to me,
And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks -
Is it aught to Him ? Does He see ?

When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,

Were made with utmost care from pole to pole.
And in my heart, I know it surely must be so

Why am I here ? The reason is so clear.
He made me and He claimed this life of mine.
His life to me He gave, Im a sinner saved by grace;
My destiny is in His will divine.

And find, for lifes long battleday,
All needful weapons there.

May I its fragrant flowers glean,
May light upon me shine.
O may I find my armour there,
Thy Word my trusty sword !
Ill learn to fight with every foe
The battle of the Lord !

With peaceful wings unfurled,

They bend on hovring wing,
And ever oer its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.
And ye, beneath lifes crushing load,
With forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow,
Look now ! For glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing :
O rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing.
For lo, the days are hastning on,
By prophet bards foretold,
When with the ever-circling years

Comes round the age of gold;
When the new heavn and earth shall own
The Prince of Peace, their King,
And the whole world give back the song
Which now the angels sing.

And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love, and wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.

Where meek souls will receive Him still, the dear Christ enters in.

Once in royal Davids city

Stood a low-ly cattle shed,

Where a mother laid her Baby,
C#m G#m B7 E
In a manger for His bed;
A E B7 E
Mary was that mother mild,
A E B7 E
Jesus Christ her little Child.
He came down to earth from heaven,
Who is God and Lord of all,
And His shelter was a stable,
And His cradle was a stall;
With the lowly, poor, and mean,
Lived on earth our Saviour holy.
O, our eyes at last shall see Him
Through His own redeeming love;
For that Child so dear and gentle
Is our God in heavn above;
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone.
Not in that poor lowly stable,
With the oxen standing by,
We shall see Him; but in heaven,
Set at Gods right hand on high;
When like stars His children crowned
All in white shall wait around.

Chorus for last stanza
My heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus -
When Thou comest and callest for me !
Heavens arches rang when the angels sang,
Proclaiming Thy royal degree;
But of lowly birth didst Thou come to earth,
And in great humility.
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.
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.

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.

On a cold winters night that was so deep.

Born is the King of Is-ra-el !
They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the east, beyond them far,
And to the earth it gave great light,
And so it continued both day and night.
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.
This star drew nigh to the northwest,
Oer Bethlehem it took its rest,
And there it did both stop and stay,
Right over the place where Jesus lay.
Then entered in those wise men three,
Full revrently upon their knee,
And offered there in His presence,
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.
Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavnly Lord,
That hath made heavn and earth of naught,
And with His blood mankind hath bought.

Showing the world that He is the way:

Redeemer, Saviour, Friend of man
Once ruined by the fall,
Thou hast devised salvations plan,
For Thou hast died for all.
His name shall be the Counsellor,
The mighty Prince of Peace,
Of all earths kingdoms Conqueror,
Whose reign shall never cease.

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
E
And the burden of my heart rolled away -

It was there by faith I received my sight,

And now I am happy all the day !
Was it for crimes that I have done
He groaned upon the tree ?
Amazing pity ! Grace unknown !
And love beyond degree !
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut His glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died
For man the creatures sin.
But drops of grief can neer repay
The debt of love I owe :
Here, Lord, I give myself away -
Tis all that I can do !

What Ive committed to His hands,
Till the decisive hour.
Then will He set my worthless name
Before His Fathers face;
And, in the new Jerusalem,
Appoint my soul a place.

Now my raptured soul can only sing
Of Calvary.

My guilt and despair Jesus took on Him there,

The stripes that He bore and the thorns that He wore
Told His mercy and love evermore;
And my heart bowed in shame as I called on His name,
And Calvary covers it all.
How matchless the grace, when I looked on the face
Of this Jesus, my crucified Lord;
My redemption complete I then found at His feet,
And Calvary covers it all.
How blessed the thought, that my soul by Him bought,
Shall be His in the glory on high;
Where with gladness and song Ill be one of the throng,
And Calvary covers it all.

Why does Jesus lift me when I stumble,
Take my hand wheneer I go astray ?
Give me strength I need for each tomorrow,

Fill my soul with peace and joy beyond degree ?
And why does He watch oer me and keep me ?
It was love, Gods wondrous love for me.

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best

So Ill cherish the old rugged cross,

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

And exchange it someday for a crown.
O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.
In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see;
For twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me.
To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then Hell call me someday to my home far away,
Where His glory forever Ill share.

On which the Prince of glory died,

My richest gain I count but loss,
B7 C#m F#m B7 E
And pour contempt on all my pride.
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ, my God;
All the vain things that charm me most -
I sacrifice them to His blood.
See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down;
Did eer such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown ?
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a tribute far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all !

Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
Were tossed and driven on, no human help in sight;
But there is One in heavn who knows our deepest care,
Let Jesus solve your problem - just go to Him in prayer.
Lifes day will soon be oer, all storms forever past,
Well cross the great divide to glory, safe at last;
Well share the joys of heavn - a harp, a home, a crown,
The tempter will be banished, well lay our burdens down.

And wrote my name in heavens Book of Life !

And shun the gate so wide, and broad the way;
For me He has prepared a place in heaven;
Someday Hell come to take me home on high !
O weary soul, let not your heart be troubled;
Believe in God, believe also in Me !
When Christ shall come, believers shall be transformed;
Well be like Him - O glorious, glorious day !

Dwelt among men - my example is He !

Buried - He carried my sins far away;

Rising - He justified freely, forever :

One day Hes coming - O glorious day !
One day they led Him up Calvarys mountain,
One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected,
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He !
One day they left Him alone in the garden,
One day He rested, from suffering free;
Angels came down oer His tomb to keep vigil -
Hope of the hopeless, my Saviour is He !
One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
One day the stone rolled away from the door;
Then He arose, over death He had conquered,
Now is ascended, my Lord evermore !
One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
One day the skies with His glory will shine;
Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing !
Glorious Saviour, this Jesus is mine !

With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He whose name is Counsellor and Powr.
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,
This the pledge to me He made.
Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faiths sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
Eer to take, as from a fathers hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.

Leave hungers that wont pass away,
My blessed Lord will come and save you,

The world is dying now for want of someone
To tell them of the Saviours matchless love.

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,
Tell of His powr to forgive;
Others will trust Him if only you prove
True, every moment you live.
Give as twas given to you in your need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed,
Unto your mission be true.

199. MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF BLESSING (6/8)
Text & Music : H.G. Smyth
G C
Is your life a channel of blessing ?
D7 G
Is the love of God flowing through you ?
C
Are you telling the lost of the Saviour ?
D7 G
Are you ready His service to do ?
Chorus

Make me a channel of blessing to-day,
C G A D7
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
G C D7 G

C G C D7 G
Make me a channel of blessing to-day.
Is your life a channel of blessing ?
Are you burdened for those that are lost ?
Have you urged upon those who are straying
The Saviour who died on the cross ?
Is your life a channel of blessing ?
Is it daily telling for Him ?
Have you spoken the word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin ?
We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from known sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.

Above the storms and passions, the murmurs of self-will.
O speak to reassure me, to hasten or control;

O let me see Thy footmarks and in them plant mine own,
My hope to follow duly is in Thy strength alone.
O guide me, call me, draw me, uphold me to the end;
And then in heavn receive me, my Saviour and my Friend.

That where Thou art in glory, there shall Thy servant be.
And, Jesus, I have promised to serve Thee to the end :

Each stripe on my Saviours back,
Theres where our healing lies.

But of His kingdom proclaim.
232. FOR ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST
47
(4/4)
Text & Music : White
D A
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain,
Em A7 D
To hold His hand and walk His narrow way;
D7
There is no peace, no joy, no thrill
G
Like walking in His will,
D A7 D
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain.
Now once my heart was full of sin and shame,
Till someone told me Jesus came to save;
When He said, Come unto me,
He set my poor heart free,
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain.
Now there are things that I still do not know,
But of this one thing Im completely sure;
He who called me on that day
Washed all my sins away,
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care ?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear ?
Count your many blessings - every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by.
When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings - money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven nor your home on high.

Though now abide faith and hope,
The greatest is love.

Stirred the slumbring chords again.
Feasting on the riches of His grace,
Resting neath His sheltring wing,
Always looking on His smiling face -
That is why I shout and sing.
Though sometimes He leads through waters deep,
Trials fall across the way,
Though sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
See His footprints all the way.

Thy rod, Thy staff they comfort me.
No ill shall ever betide;
The Lords my wonderful Shepherd,
He gently leads me home.
A table Thou hast prepared me
In presence of my foes;
My head with oil Thou hast nointed,
My cup it doth overflow;
Goodness and mercy shall follow,
Through all the days of my life;

299. O REJOICE IN THE LORD (3/4)
Text & Music : R. Hamilton
C Am Dm G
God never moves without purpose or plan
C Am Dm G
When trying His servant and moulding a man.
C Am Dm G
Give thanks to the Lord though your testing seems long;
F G C
In darkness He giveth a song.
Chorus
C Am Dm G
O rejoice in the Lord, He makes no mistake.
C Am Dm G
He knoweth the end of each path that I take.
C Em F Fm
For when I am tried and purified,
C G C
I shall come forth as gold.
I could not see through the shadows ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Saviour instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.
Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.

Since Jesus came into my heart !
And no dark clouds of doubt now my pathway obscure,
Since Jesus came into my heart !
Theres a light in the valley of death now for me,
Since Jesus came into my heart !
And the gates of the City beyond I can see,
Since Jesus came into my heart !

Since Jesus came into my heart !
And Im happy, so happy, as onward I go,
Since Jesus came into my heart !

But David knew his faith in God would stand the test,
He flung the rock, God did the rest.

Nor if Ill walk deaths vale with Him,

Trusting in Him youll surely succeed.
Let us press on then, never despair;
Live above feeling, victorys there;

That nevermore shall our faith grow dim.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt nor a fear, not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss, not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.
But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favour He shows and the joy He bestows
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or well 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.

Did you plead for grace, my brother,
That you might forgive another
Who has crossed your way ?
When sore trials came upon you,
Did you think to pray ?
When your soul was bowed in sorrow,
Balm of Gilead did you borrow
At the gates of day ?

With one accord through Thy dear Son.

No merit of our own we bring,
Simply to Jesus cross we cling,
Our cries attend !
With contrite and with loving hearts,
We seek Thy pardon and Thy grace.
Joy of salvation and of praise
To us impart !
Help us carry our daily cross,
Bear up our burden with good cheer,
Be they so weary and so drear,
Mind not the loss !
We thank Thee for strength of each hour,
For health and wealth, for home and friends,
For peace and quiet confidence,
Our shield and tower !
We pray for church at home, abroad.
We pray for govnors of our land.
We pray for missions to earths end,
Send forth Thy Word !
O Father, bless us when we part.
Thy Spirit pour down from on high.
Till Thy servants again draw nigh,
Breathe in our hearts !

Now that I have believed and the Saviour received,
Now that I from the cry of my guilt am relieved,
I will live for my Lord, not for gain nor reward -
But for love, thinking of what His grace has restored !
Ill never comprehend redemptions plan -
How Christ could condescend to die for man.
Such a Saviour Ill praise to the end of my days,
As I upward, onward trod in the image of God.

Make friends of Gods children, help those who are weak,

Take time to be holy, let Him be thy Guide,
And run not before Him, whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow, still follow thy Lord,
And, looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.
Take time to be holy, Be calm in thy soul -
Each thought and each motive beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.

And ungodly ways will perish.

Im pressing on the upward way,

New heights Im gaining every day;
E E7 A
Still praying as I onward bound,
E B7 E
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
Chorus

Lord, lift me up, and let me stand

On Christ the Rock and not on sand;

A higher plane than I have found,

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.
I want to live above the world,
Though Satans darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.
I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still Ill pray till heavn Ive found,
Lord, lead me on to higher ground.

I must needs go on in the blood-sprinkled way,
The path that the Saviour trod,
If I ever climb to the heights sublime,
Where the soul is at home with God.
Then I bid farewell to the way of the world
To walk in it nevermore;
For my Lord says Come, and I seek my home
Where He waits at the open door.

We shall walk, by Thy strength we will stand forever more,
By Thy grace we will stand.

Of my pride, of the world so bright.
Sometimes, chains of temptations assail,
My sinfulness I see so real.
Then look up, step steadfastly on
When the storms of life trouble you;
Look beyond, constantly follow My hand -
I am slowly moulding a man.

Follow not the path of erring throngs,
I am, child, constantly making you wise,
Press on and you shall see the prize.

And have turned from the sins they have sinned,

And welcomes a sinner before its too late.

And the love of my Saviour is long;
Through sunshine or rain, through loss or in gain,
The blood flows from Calvry to cleanse every stain.

439. THE GIFT OF LIFE (4/4)
Text & Music : C. Floria
E B7
While I was still an enemy He loved me
F#m B7 E
He looked at me, I didnt even care.
A
He saw the walls and masks Id put around me,
E B7 E
And then He told me that He paid my share.
B7
My useless struggle lost against His power,
F#m B7 E
His per-fect grace abounded there and won.
A
Wounded, tortured by my lonely conscience,
E B7 E
Convicted by the witness of His Son.
A B7 E
The wages sin pays out is death, my brother.
F#m B7 E
The bountiful, free gift of God is life.
Am E
Just o - pen up your heart, let Jesus enter,
A E F#m E
He cancelled out your sin, He bought your strife.
My built-up pride just burst there like a bubble,
My life fell down in fragments at my feet;
That single hour was longer than a lifetime
When Jesus face I turned around to meet.
He freed my mind and spirit from my trouble,
My scaly eyes were opened just to see.
My failures left a thousand miles behind me,
His love was poured out there to set me free.
The wages sin pays out is death, my brother.
The bountiful, free gift of God is life.
Just open up your heart, let Jesus enter,
A E A E B7
He cancelled out, He cancelled out your sin,
A B7 E
He gave you life.

Feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness,
Chords that are broken will vibrate once more.

Back to the narrow way patiently win them,
Tell the poor wandrer a Saviour has died.

And things of earth that cause the heart to tremble,
Remembered there will only bring a smile.
This weary world with all its toil and struggle
May take its toll of misery and strife;
The soul of man is like a waiting falcon,
When its released, its destined for the skies.
Glorious Hope

Text : E.E. Hewitt; Music : E.D. Wilson
C
Sing the wondrous love of Jesus,
G C
Sing His mercy and His grace;
F
In the mansions bright and blessed
C G7 C
Hell prepare for us a place.
Chorus
F C
When we all get to heaven,
Am D7 G G7
What a day of rejoicing that will be !
C C7 F
When we all see Jesus,
C G7 C
Well sing and shout the victory.
While we walk the pilgrim pathway
Clouds will overspread the sky;
But when travling days are over,
Not a shadow, not a sigh.
Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving every day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.
Onward to the prize before us !
Soon His beauty well behold;
Soon the pearly gates will open -
We shall tread the streets of gold.
Glorious Hope
470. WELL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER BY AND BY (4/4)
Text & Music : C.A. Tindley
E E7
Trials dark on every hand,
A E
And we cannot understand
C#m
All the ways that God would lead us
F# B7
To that blessed promised land;
E E7
But Hell guide us with His eye,
A Am
And well follow till we die;
E B7 E
We will understand it better by and by.
Chorus
E7 A E
By and by, when the morning comes,
E F# B7
When the saints of God are gathered home,
E E7 A Am
We will tell the story how weve overcome;
E B7 E
We will understand it better by and by.
Oft our cherished plans have failed,
Disappointments have prevailed,
And weve wandered in the darkness,
Heavy-hearted and alone;
But were trusting in the Lord,
And according to His Word,
We will understand it better by and by.
Glorious Hope
Temptations, hidden snares
Often take us unawares,
And our hearts are made to bleed
For some thoughtless word or deed,
And we wonder why the test
When we try to do our best,
But well understand it better by and by.
471. IM WALKING ALONG A HEAVENLY ROAD (4/4)
Text & Music : R.C. Loveless
C
Im walking along a heavenly road
G7 C
Since Je-sus took all my sins away,
And somewhere there rings a heavenly song
G7 C C7
That brightens my pathway each day.
F G C Am
The sins that bind me, bind me no more
Dm D7 G G7
And now Im bound for a heavenly shore.
C
And all the darkness of night has turned to day
G7 C
Since Je-sus took all my sins away.
