C                       G
I am weak, but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I’ll be satisfied as long
     C            G             C
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.

Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
       C        G            C
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.


When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore.

      C         G
While shepherds watched
      F         C
Their flocks by night
    C      D      G
All seated on the ground
    F            G         E
The angel of the Lord came down
    G     F       C
And glory shone around

"Fear not," he said,
For mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind."

"To you in David's
Town this day
Is born of David's line
The Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign."

"The heavenly Babe
You there shall find
To human view displayed
And meanly wrapped
In swathing bands
And in a manger laid."

Thus spake the seraph,
And forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song

"All glory be to
God on high
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth
From heaven to men
Begin and never cease!"

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.

O Shepherd Divine

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine; 
    A                           D
Thy search in the night was for me.
This bleak world is cold, but warm is Thy fold; 
   A                  D 
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.
    G                      D
Thy beautiful lamp shineth bright o'er my way,
    E                   A  
Thy glorious light unto Thy per-fect day.
Thro' pastures serene, Thro' valleys of green, 
   A                  D
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine;
Thy great heart was broken for me.
Thy grace and Thy law I picture in awe;
They kissed upon Calvary.
Ah! Life that was given to ransom my soul,
Ah! Heart that was broken to make sinners whole, 
This world is but loss
In view of Thy cross,
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

O Shepherd divine, I know Thou art mine;
I hear Thee say, “Follow thou Me.”
Thy message today illumines my way;
The Spirit of Prophecy.
I thrill at Thy marvellous love to Thy sheep,
The way Thou dost lead to the still waters deep,
One staff and one rod,
One fold and one God;
My Shepherd, I follow Thee.

D                     G       D 
And did those feet in ancient time 
G         D         Em        G 
walk upon England's mountains green? 
    D            A       D 
And was the Holy Lamb of God 
   A         D            E    A 
on England's pleasant pastures seen? 

    A       Em     Am   Em 
And did the countenance divine 
               G     C       G 
shine forth upon our clouded hills? 
        Em             A  D 
And was Jerusalem builded here 
      G     D    G       D 
among these dark satanic mills 

Bring me my bow of burning gold! 
Bring me my arrows of de-sire! 
Bring me my spear! O Clouds unfold! 
Bring me my chariot of fire! 

I will not cease from mental fight, 
nor shall my sword sleep in my hand, 
'til we have built Jerusalem 
in England's green and pleasant land!

Mine eyes have seen the glory,

Of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage
            G                  D
Where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning
        B              Em
Of His terrible swift sword;
     Am       D       G
His truth is marching on.

     Glory, glory, hallelujah!
      C                  G
     Glory, glory, hallelujah!
      G                  Em
     Glory, glory, hallelujah!
          Am       D       G
     His truth is marching on.

I have seen him the watchfires
Of a hundred circling camps;
They have builded him an altar
In the evening dews and damps.
I can read his righteous sentence
By the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel
Writ in burnished rows of steel:
"As ye deal with my contemners
So with you my grace shall deal."
Let the hero born of woman
Crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet
That shall never call retreat;
He is shifting out the hearts of men
Before his judgement seat.
O be swift my soul to answer him,
Be jubilant my feet;
Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies
Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom
That transfigures you and me.
As he died to make men holy,
Let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

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!
