Our day of joy is here again



Långsam version:




1. Our day of joy is here again, 
with love and peace and song.
Come, let us join th’angelic strain 
with voices clear and strong. 
Glory to our God, we sing, 
glory to our Lord and King; 
peace, goodwill with all abide 
this holy Christmas tide. 

2. When darkness lay upon this earth, 
a glorious light did shine; 
God sent a Gift of priceless worth 
and showed His love divine. 
Glory to our God...

3. Now to the manger let us go 
to worship and adore 
the tender Babe upon the straw, 
our Savior evermore.
Glory to our God...

4. How wonderful that God’s own Son 
should so Himself abase! 
He thrust the mighty from their throne, 
and gave the lowly grace.
Glory to our God...

God be with you till we meet again




1. God be with you till we meet again, 
by His counsels guide, uphold you, 
with His sheep securely fold you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 
Till we meet, till we meet, 
till we meet at Jesus’ feet; 
till we meet, till we meet, 
God be with you till we meet again. 

2. God be with you till we meet again; 
neath His wings protecting hide you; 
daily manna still provide you; 
God be with you till we meet again.  
Till we meet...

3. God be with you till we meet again; 
with the oil of joy anoint you; 
sacred ministries appoint you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 
Till we meet... 

4. God be with you till we meet again; 
when life’s perils thick confound you,
put His arms unfailing round you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 
Till we meet.. 

5. God be with you till we meet again; 
of His promises remind you; 
for life’s upper garner bind you; 
God be with you till we meet again.
Till we meet...

6. God be with you till we meet again; 
sicknesses and sorrows taking, 
never leaving or forsaking; 
God be with you till we meet again. 
Till we meet... 

7. God be with you till we meet again; 
keep love’s banner floating o’er you, 
strike death’s threatening wave before you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 
Till we meet...

8. God be with you till we meet again; 
ended when for you earth’s story, 
Israel’s chariot sweep to glory; 
God be with you till we meet again.
Till we meet...

Come, Thou fount of every blessing






1. 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 thy redeeming love. 

2. Here I raise mine Ebenezer; 
hither by thy help I'm 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. 

3. O to grace how great a debtor 
daily I'm constrained to be! 
Let thy goodness, 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.

Free from the law

 


1. Free from the law, O happy condition, 
Jesus has bled and there is remission,
cursed by the law and bruised by the fall, 
grace hath redeemed us once for all. 
Once for all, O sinner, receive it, 
once for all, O brother, believe it; 
cling to the cross, the burden will fall, 
Christ hath redeemed us once for all. 

2. Now we are free, there’s no condemnation, Jesus provides a perfect salvation. 
“Come unto Me,” O hear His sweet call, 
come, and He saves us once for all. 
Once for all...

3.“Children of God,” O glorious calling, 
surely His grace will keep us from falling; 
passing from death to life at His call; 
blessèd salvation once for all.
Once for all...

Break forth, break forth




1. Break forth, break forth, o joyful heart, 
and make His goodness known, 
who all thy life, though undeserved, 
such love to thee has shown. 
Break forth, break forth, o joyful heart, 
no longer silent be; 
break forth in grateful praise to him 
who came to ransom Thee. 

2. ’Twas Jesus sought my wand’ring soul, 
and with a shepherd’s care 
he brought me kindly to his fold, 
and still protects me there. 
He is my Advocate with God, 
my Savior and my Friend, 
his mercies new with every morn 
like balmy showers descend.

3. My soul shall magnify the Lord, 
my voice his love proclaim, 
and every power within me join 
to bless and praise his Name. 
Break forth, break forth, o joyful heart, 
no longer silent be; 
break forth in grateful praise to him 
who came to ransom Thee.

One is kind above all others



1. One is kind above all others, 
o how He loves! 
His is love beyond a brother’s; 
o how He loves! 
Earthly friends may fall and leave thee, 
one day kind, the next day grieve thee; 
but this friend will ne’er deceive thee; 
o how He loves! 

2. ’Tis eternal life to know Him, 
o how He loves! 
Think, oh think, how much we owe Him, 
o how He loves! 
With His precious blood He bought us, 
in the wilderness He sought us 
to His fold He safely brought us, 
o how He loves! 

3. Blessèd Jesus! wouldst thou know Him? 
O how He loves! 
Give thine heart, thine all unto Him; 
o how He loves! 
Is it sin that pains or grieves thee, 
unbelief or trials seize thee? 
Jesus can from all release thee; 
o how He loves! 

4. Love this friend: He longs to save thee; 
o how He loves! 
All through life He will not leave thee; 
o how He loves! 
Think no more of friendships hollow; 
take His easy yoke and follow; 
Jesus carries all thy sorrow; 
o how He loves! 

5. All thy sins shall be forgiven; 
o how He loves! 
Backward shall thy foes be driven; 
o how He loves! 
Best of blessings He’ll provide thee; 
naught but good shall e’er betide thee; 
safe to glory He will guide thee; 
o how He loves!

Saviour, hear me while before thy feet

Mel. efter ca 2 minuter:




1. Saviour, hear me while before thy feet 
I the record of my sins repeat. 
Stained with guilt, myself abhorring, 
filled with grief, my soul outpouring; 
canst thou still in mercy think of me, 
stoop to set my shackled spirit free, 
raise my sinking heart and bid me be 
Thy child once more? 
Is there grace my every debt to pay, 
blood to wash my every sin away, 
power to keep me spotless day by day, 
for me, for me? 

2. All the memories of deeds gone by 
rise within me and thy power defy; 
with a deathly chill ensnaring, 
they would leave my soul despairing. 
Saviour, take my hand, I cannot tell 
how to stem the tides that round me swell, 
how to ease my conscience, or to quell 
my flaming heart. 
Is there grace...

3. Yet why should I fear? Hast thou not died 
that no seeking soul should be denied? 
To that heart, its sins confessing, 
canst thou fail to give a blessing? 
By the love and pity thou hast shown, 
by the blood that did for me atone, 
boldly will I kneel before thy throne, 
a pleading soul.
Is there grace...

4. All the rivers of thy grace I claim, 
over every promise write my name; 
as I am I come, believing, 
as thou art thou dost receiving, 
bid me rise a free and pardoned slave, 
master o'er my sin, the world, the grave, 
charging me to preach thy power to save 
yo sinbound souls.
Grace there is my every debt to pay, 
blood to wash my every sin away, 
power to keep me spotless day by day, 
for me, for me!
