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.

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       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, 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.

G             Em
Once in royal David's city,
G       Em    D       G
stood a lowly cattle  shed,
G              Em
where a mother laid her baby
G    Em     D       G
in a manger for His bed.
C    G        D      G
Mary was that mother mild,
C     G          D      G
Jesus Christ her little child

He came down to earth from heaven
Who is God and Lord of all
And His shelter was a stable
And His cradle was a stall
With the poor and mean and lowly
Lived on earth our Savior holy

And our eyes at last shall see Him
Through His own redeeming love
For that Child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heaven above
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone
