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!"

  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.

   C        Am      G   C
O God, our help in ages past,
     C         Am     G
Our hope for years to come,
      C      Am       F     E
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
     F     G    C
And our eternal home!

Under the shadow of Thy throne
Still may we dwell secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defense is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
To endless years the same.

Time like an ever-flowing stream
Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten as a dream
Dies at the break of day.

A thousand ages in Thy sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night,
Before the rising sun.

O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guide while life shall last,
And our eternal home!

May the Mind of Christ

C       F       Am         G
May the mind of Christ, my Savior,
C       Am      D      G
Live in me from day to day,
C      F        Am       G
By His love and power controlling
F     G      C
All I do and say.

May the Word of God dwell richly
In my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph
Only through His power.

May the peace of God, my Father,
Rule my life in everything.
That I may be calm to comfort
Sick and sorrowing.

May the love of Jesus fill me,
As the waters fill the sea;
Him exalting, self abasing
This is victory.

Music: St. Le­o­nards

A Mighty Fortress

  C      G        Am     G 
A mighty Fortress is our God,
  Am            G   C
A Bulwark never failing;
    C      G    Am       G 
Our Helper He amidst the flood
   Am             G  C
Of mortal ills prevailing:
    C         D       G
For still our ancient foe
     C       D       Am
Doth seek to work us woe;
    Am        D         G
His craft and pow'r are great,
    Am         F     E
And armed with cruel hate,
   Am               G   C
On earth is not his e - qual.

Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side,
The Man of God's own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He;
The Lord of Hosts His Name,
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.

And though this world, with devils filled,
Should threaten to undo us;
We will not fear, for God hath willed
His truth to triumph through us:
The prince of darkness grim,
We tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure,
For lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

That word above all earthly pow'rs,
No thanks to them a - bideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go,
This mortal life also;
The body they may kill;
God's truth abideth still,
His Kingdom is for - ever.

I Cannot Tell

         C                       F
I cannot tell why He whom angels worship,

               C                     G
Should set His love upon the sons of men,

             C                         F
Or why, as Shepherd, He should seek the wanderers,

              C          G               C     G
To bring them back, they know not how or when.

           C          Am             G       Em
But this I know, that He was born of Mary

                 Am     F            G
When Bethlehem’s manger was His only home,

            C        F            C        Am
And that He lived at Nazareth and labored,

           C              G               C
And so the Savior, Savior of the world is come.
