Sample Hymns and Readings

 

Come, We That Love the Lord
Words: Isaac Watts, 1707
Music: Aaron Williams: 1770

Come, we that love the Lord, and let our joys be known;
join in a song with sweet accord, and thus surround the throne.

Let those refuse to sing who never knew our God;
but  children of the heavenly King may speak their joys abroad.

The hill of Zion yields a thousand sacred sweets
before we reach the heavenly fields, or walk the golden streets.

Then let our songs abound, and every tear be dry;
we're marching through Emmanuel's ground, to fairer worlds on high.

 

Gloria Patri: Glory Be to the Father

Glory be to the Father

as it was in the beginning
is now and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen. Amen.

Praise the Spirit, Holy Spirit!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Only Trust Him

He will save you, he will save you, he will save you now.

For Jesus shed his precious blood rich blessings to bestow;
plunge now into the crimson flood that washes bright as snow.

Yes, Jesus is the truth, the way that leads you into rest;

Come then and join this holy band, and on to glory go,
to dwell in that celestial land where joys and immortal flow.

We're marching to Zion, beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion, the beautiful city of God.

may speak their joys abroad, may speak their joys abroad.
Chorus

The hill of Zion yields a thousand sacred sweets
before we reach the heavenly fields, before we reach the heavenly fields
or walk the golden streets, or walk the golden streets.
Chorus

Then let our songs abound, and every tear be dry;
we're marking through Emmanuel's ground, we're marching through Emmanuel's ground,
to fairer worlds on high, to fairer worlds on high.
Chorus
