COME THOU FOUNT

Come thou Fount of every blessing
tune my heart to sing thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount—I’m fixed upon it—
mount of God’s unchanging love!

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I’ve come
And I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor,
daily I’m constrained to be!
Let that grace now like a fetter,
bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
seal it for thy courts above.

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
seal it for thy courts above.

HAIL TO THE LORD’S ANOINTED

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed,
great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
His reign on earth begun!

He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free,
To take away transgression,
and rule in equity! Chorus

He comes with comfort, speedy,
to those who suffer wrong;
To help the poor and needy,
and bid the weak be strong!
To give them songs for sighing—
their darkness turn to light—
Whose souls, condemned and dying,
are precious in his sight! Chorus

To him shall prayer unceasing
and daily vows ascend;
His kingdom still increasing—
a kingdom without end!
O’er every foe victorious,
he on his throne shall rest
From age to age more glorious;
all-blessing and all-blessed! Chorus

The tide of time shall never
his covenant remove!
His name shall stand forever;
that name to us is Love! Chorus

JESUS WITH THY CHURCH ABIDE

Jesus, with thy Church abide,
Be her Savior, Lord, and Guide,
While on earth her faith is tried.
We beseech thee, hear us,
We beseech thee, hear us.

Keep her life and doctrine pure,
Grant her patience to endure,
Trusting in thy promise sure.
We beseech thee, hear us,
We beseech thee, hear us.

May she one in doctrine be,
One in truth and charity,
Winning all to faith in thee.
We beseech thee, hear us,
We beseech thee, hear us.

May she guide the poor and blind,
Seek the lost until she find,
And the brokenhearted bind.
We beseech thee, hear us,
We beseech thee, hear us,
We beseech thee, hear us,

Oft in sorrow, oft in woe;
Onward, Christian! Onward, go!

ETERNAL WEIGHT OF GLORY

Now the days and hours and moments
Of our suff’ring seem so long;
And the toilsome wait and wond’ring
Threaten silence to our song.
Now our pain is real and pressing
Where our faith is thin and weak,
But our hope is set on Jesus;
And we cling to him, our strength.

Oh eternal weight of glory!
Oh inheritance divine!
We will see our Lord redeeming
Every past and future time.
All our pains will be transfigured,
Like the scars of Christ our Lord.
We will see the weight of glory,
And our broken years restored.

For behold! I tell a myst’ry:
At the trumpet sound we’ll wake
“Death is swallowed up in vict’ry!”
When we meet our King of Grace
Every year we thought was wasted
Every night we cried “How long?”
All will be a passing moment
In our Savior’s vict’ry song!

We will see our wounded Savior.
We’ll behold him face to face;
And we’ll hear our anguished stories
Sung as vict’ry songs of grace.

For behold! I tell a myst’ry:
At the trumpet sound we’ll wake
“Death is swallowed up in vict’ry!”
When we meet our King of Grace
Every year we thought was wasted
Every night we cried “How long?”
All will be a passing moment
In our Savior’s vict’ry song!
