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

Here is Love

Posted by in Hymns, Music

Here is love, vast as the ocean, Lovingkindness as the flood, When the Prince of Life, our Ransom, Shed for us His precious blood. Who His love will not remember? Who can cease to sing His praise? He can never be forgotten, Throughout Heav’n’s eternal days. On the mount of crucifixion, Fountains opened deep and wide; Through the floodgates of God’s mercy Flowed a vast and gracious tide. Grace and love, like mighty rivers, Poured incessant from above, And Heav’n’s peace and perfect justice Kissed a guilty world in love….read more

The Communion Hymn

Posted by in Hymns, Music

Behold the Lamb who bears our sins away, Slain for us: and we remember The promise made that all who come in faith Find forgiveness at the cross. So we share in this Bread of life, And we drink of His sacrifice, As a sign of our bonds of peace Around the table of the King. The body of our Savior, Jesus Christ, Torn for you: eat and remember The wounds that heal, the death that brings us life, Paid the price to make us one. The blood that cleanses…read more

Come Ye Sinners Poor and Needy

Come ye sinners, poor and needy, Weak and wounded, sick and sore; Jesus ready stands to save you, Full of pity, love, and pow’r. I will arise and go to Jesus, He will embrace me in His arms; In the arms of my dear Savior, O there are ten thousand charms. Come, ye thirsty, come and welcome, God’s free bounty glorify; True belief and true repentance, Ev’ry grace that brings you nigh. I will arise and go to Jesus, He will embrace me in His arms; In the arms of…read more
