For the Cause

Posted by in Hymns, Music

Love the last lines… Let it be my life’s refrain: To live is Christ, to die is gain; Deny myself, take up my cross And follow the Son For The Cause For the cause of Christ the King We give our lives, an offering Till all the earth resounds with ceaseless praise To the Son For the cause of Christ we go With joy to reap, with faith to sow As many see And many put their trust In the Son Christ we proclaim, The Name above every name: For…read more

Lord With glowing heart I praise thee

Posted by in Hymns, Music

Lord, with glowing heart I’d praise Thee, For the bliss Thy love bestows, For the pardoning grace that saves me, And the peace that from it flows: Help, O God, my weak endeavor; This dull soul to rapture raise: Thou must light the flame, or never Can my love be warmed to praise. Praise, my soul, the God that sought thee, Wretched wanderer, far astray; Found thee lost, and kindly brought thee From the paths of death away; Praise, with love’s devoutest feeling, Him Who saw thy guilt-born fear, And…read more

Why Should I Sorrow More?

Posted by in Hymns, Music

WHY should I sorrow more? I trust a Savior slain, And safe beneath His sheltering cross Unmoved I shall remain. Let Satan and the world, Ever my heart allure; The promises in Christ are made Unchangeable and sure. The oath infallible Is now my spirit’s trust; I know that He Who spoke the word, Is faithful, true, and just. He’ll bring me on my way Unto my journey’s end; He’ll be my Father and my God, My Saviour and my Friend. So all my doubts and fears Shall wholly flee…read more

Beneath the Cross

Posted by in Hymns, Music

Beneath the cross of Jesus I find a place to stand, And wonder at such mercy That calls me as I am; For hands that should discard me Hold wounds which tell me, “Come.” Beneath the cross of Jesus My unworthy soul is won. Beneath the cross of Jesus His family is my own— Once strangers chasing selfish dreams, Now one through grace alone. How could I now dishonor The ones that You have loved? Beneath the cross of Jesus See the children called by God. Beneath the cross of…read more

For the Sake of His Name

Posted by in Hymns, Music

Go to the world for the sake of His name; To every nation His glory proclaim. Pray that the Spirit wise Will open darkened eyes, Granting new life to display Jesus’ fame. Refrain: In Jesus’ power, preach Christ to the lost; For Jesus’ glory, count all else but loss. Gather from every place Trophies of sov’reign grace. Lest life be wasted, exalt Jesus’ cross. Love the unloved for the sake of His name; Like Christ, befriend those whose heads hang in shame. Jesus did not condemn, But was condemned for…read more

I Run to Christ

Posted by in Hymns, Music

I run to Christ when chased by fear And find a refuge sure. “Believe in me,” His voice I hear; His words and wounds secure. I run to Christ when torn by grief And find abundant peace. “I too had tears,” He gently speaks; Thus joy and sorrow meet. I run to Christ when worn by life And find my soul refreshed. “Come unto Me,” He calls through strife; Fatigue gives way to rest. I run to Christ when vexed by hell And find a mighty arm. “The Devil flees,”…read more
