  C              F 
O little town of Bethlehem, 
    C        G        C
How still we see thee lie; 
 C                 F 
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep 
    C      G        C 
The silent stars go by. 
    C                    E 
Yet in the dark streets shineth 
    Am          E 
The everlasting light; 
    C                  F 
The hopes and fears of all the years 
    C      G      C 
Are met in thee tonight. 

For Christ is born of Mary; 
And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep the angels keep 
Their watch of wond'ring love. 
O morning stars together 
Proclaim the holy birth; 
And praises sing to God the King, 
And peace to men on earth.

How silent, how silently 
The wondrous gift is giv'n! 
So God imparts to human hearts 
The blessings of His heav'n. 
No ear may hear His coming, 
But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
Descend to us, we pray; 
Cast out our sin and enter in, 
Be born in us today. 
We hear the Christmas angels 
The great glad tidings tell; 
O come to us, abide with us, 
Our Lord, Emmanuel.

G                C        G                  
'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, 
                 A      D
Just to take him at his word;
G               C      G           
Just to rest up-on his promise, 
        C           D         G
Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

G             D                                
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him! 
G                   A        A
How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
G             C        G             
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! 
      C        D         G
O for grace to trust him more!

Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Jesus Calls Us

G     D                 G      
Jesus calls us o'er the tumult
       C                     G    
Of our life's wild, restless sea;
       A                   G         
Day by day his sweet voice soundeth,
        C                  G           
Saying, "Christian, follow me!"

As of old Saint Andrew heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and toil and kindred,
Leaving all for Jesus’ sake.

Jesus calls us from the worship
Of the vain world’s golden store,
From each idol that would keep us,
Saying, “Christian, love Me more!”

In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures,
“Christian, love Me more than these!”

Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies,
Savior may we hear Thy call,
Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
Serve and love Thee best of all.

Blessed Assurance

A         D        G        D 
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
D         A            E       A 
Oh what a foretaste of glory divine!
A         D        G           D 
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
D           G       A             D 
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

A          D      G          D      
This is my story, this is my song, 
G           D        E           A
praising my Saviour, all the day long;
A          D      G          D                  
This is my story, this is my song, 
D           G        A           D
praising my Saviour, all the day long.

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Saviour am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

G       Em       G       D  G
O for a thousand tongues to sing
   C                D
My great Redeemer’s praise,
   G         A        D
My great Re- deemer’s praise,
G           Em    C       D
The glories of my God and King,
    G               C
The triumphs of His grace!
    G               D
The triumphs of His grace!
    G                C            D      G
The triumphs of- The triumphs of- of His grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’Tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.

He speaks, and, listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive,
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.

Hear Him, ye deaf;
His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

G                Em 
Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah, 
G       C            G  D   G 
Pilgrim through this barren land. 
G              Em 
I am weak, but Thou art mighty; 
G       C        G    D   G 
Hold me with Thy powerful hand. 
D                G 
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, 
Em                     D 
Feed me till I want no more; 
G       C      G    D  G 
Feed me till I want no more. 

Open now the crystal fountain, 
Whence the healing stream doth flow; 
Let the fire and cloudy pillar 
Lead me all my journey through. 
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer, 
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield; 
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield. 

Lord, I trust Thy mighty power, 
Wondrous are Thy works of old; 
Thou deliver’st Thine from thralldom, 
Who for naught themselves had sold: 
Thou didst conquer, Thou didst conquer,
 Sin, and Satan and the grave, 
Sin, and Satan and the grave. 

When I tread the verge of Jordan, 
Bid my anxious fears subside; 
Death of deaths, and hell’s destruction, 
Land me safe on Canaan’s side. 
Songs of praises, songs of praises, 
I will ever give to Thee; I will ever give to Thee. 

Musing on my habitation, 
Musing on my heav’nly home, 
Fills my soul with holy longings: 
Come, my Jesus, quickly come; 
Vanity is all I see; Lord, 
I long to be with Thee!
 Lord, I long to be with Thee!

O come, O come, E– man– u– el,

And ransom captive Is– ra– el

O come, thou Wisdom from on high,
Who ord'rest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show
And teach us in her ways to go.

O come, O come, thou Lord of might,
Who to thy tribes on Sinai's height
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

O come, thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From the depths of hell Thy people save
And give them vict'ry o'er the grave.

O come, thou Key of David, come
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spitis by thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death's dark shadows put to flight.

O come, Desire of nations, bind
All peoples in one heart and mind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.
