All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the LORD with cheerful voice;
Him serve with fear, His praise forth tell;
Come ye before Him and rejoice.

The LORD ye know is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make;
We are His folk, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.

O enter then His gates with praise,
Approach with joy His courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless His name always,
For it is seemly so to do.

For why? the LORD our God is good,
His mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood
And shall from age to age endure.

All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall,
Let angels prostrate fall.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him

Refrain: And crown Him.
Crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,
And crown Him Lord of all!

Crown him, ye martyrs of your God,
Who from His altar call,
Who from His altar call.
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s Rod

Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace.

Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget,
The wormwood and the gall,
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at His feet.

Let every tongue and every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
On this terrestrial ball,
To him all majesty ascribe.

Oh, that with yonder sacred throng,
We at his feet may fall!
We at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song.

Jesus shall reign where’er the sun,
Does its successive journeys run,
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

To him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown his head.
His name like sweet perfume shall rise,
With every morning sacrifice.

People and realms of every tongue,
Dwell on his love with sweetest song,
And infant voices shall proclaim,
Their early blessings on his name.

Blessings abound where’er he reigns:
The prisoners leap to lose their chains,
The weary find eternal rest,
And all who suffer want are blest.

Let every creature rise and bring,
The highest honors to our King,
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen.

To Canaan’s land I’m on my way,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
My darkest night will turn to day,
Where the soul (of man) never dies.

No sad farewells (dear friends there’ll be no sad farewells),
No tear dimmed eyes (there’ll be no tear-dimmed eyes),
Where all is love (where all is peace and joy and love),
And the soul (of man) never dies.

A rose is blooming there for me,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
And I will spend eternity,
Where the soul (of man) never dies.

The love light beams across the foam,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
It shines to light the shores of home,
Where the soul (of man) never dies.

My life will end in deathless sleep,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
And everlasting joys I’ll reap,
Where the soul (of man) never dies.

I’m on my way to that fair land,
Where the soul (of man) never dies;
Where there will be no parting hand,
Where the soul (of man) never dies.

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of thy love.

Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for thee,
Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only, for my King.

Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,

Take my will and make it thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart it is thine own;
It shall be thy royal throne.

Lord I give my life to thee,
Thine forever more to be!
Lord I give my life to thee,
Thine forever more to be!

Jesus, Thou art the sinner’s Friend;
As such I look to Thee;
Now, in the fulness of Thy love,
O Lord, remember me.

Remember Thy pure word of grace,
Remember Calvary,
Remember all Thy dying groans,
And then remember me.

Thou wondrous Advocate with God,
I yield myself to Thee;
While Thou art sitting on Thy throne,
Oh Lord, remember me.

I own guilty, own I’m vile,
Yet Thy salvation’s free;
And in Thine all-abounding grace,
Oh Lord, remember me.

Howe’er forsaken or despised,
Howe’er oppressed I be,
Howe’er forgotten here on earth,
Do Thou remember me.

And when I close my eyes in death,
And creature helps all flee,
Then, oh, my great Redeemer God,
I pray remember me.

Stricken, smitten, and afflicted,
See Him dying on the tree!
‘Tis the Christ by man rejected;
Yes, my soul, ’tis He, ’tis He!
‘Tis the long-expected Prophet,
David’s Son, yet David’s Lord;
By His Son God now has spoken:
‘Tis the true and faithful Word.

Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning,
Was there ever grief like His?
Friends thro’ fear His cause disowning,
Foes insulting His distress;
Many hands were raised to wound Him,
None would interpose to save;
But the deepest stroke that pierced Him
Was the stroke that Justice gave.

Ye who think of sin but lightly,
Nor suppose the evil great,
Here may view its nature rightly,
Here its guilt may estimate.
Mark the sacrifice appointed,
See who bears the awful load;
‘Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed,
Son of Man and Son of God.

Here we have a firm foundation;
Here the refuge of the lost;
Christ, the Rock of our salvation,
His the Name of which we boast.
Lamb of God, for sinners wounded,
Sacrifice to cancel guilt!
None shall ever be confounded
Who on him their hope have built.

I will sing of my Redeemer
And his wondrous love to me;
On the cruel cross he suffered,
From the curse to set me free.

Refrain: Sing, O sing of my Redeemer!
With his blood he purchased me;
On the cross he sealed my pardon,
Paid the debt, and made me free.

I will tell the wondrous story,
How my lost estate to save,
In his boundless love and mercy,
He the ransom freely gave.

I will praise my dear Redeemer
His triumphant power I’ll tell
How the victory He giveth
Over sin and death and hell.

I will sing of my Redeemer
And his heavenly love for me;
He from death to life has brought me,
Son of God, with him to be.

Be ye holy as God is holy,
Be ye holy as God is holy
Just as He who calls us is holy
Be holy before the Lord.

God gives grace sufficient
And strength to run the race
And He calls us to be holy
Holy before His face.

Be ye holy as God is holy
Be ye holy as God is holy
Just as He who calls us is holy
Be holy before the Lord.

I will call upon the Lord (I will call upon the Lord)
Who is worthy to be praised (Who is worthy to be praised)
So shall I be saved from mine enemies (So shall I be saved from mine enemies)

Who is God except the Lord (Who is God except the Lord?)
Who a Rock beside our God?
To a higher place He delivered me.

So will I give thanks to Thee,
And sing praises to Thy name.
Be exalted, Lord, in Thy mighty power.

The Lord liveth, and blessed be my Rock,
And let the God of my salvation be exalted.
The Lord liveth, and blessed be my Rock
And let the God of my salvation be exalted.

How can I a lowly mortal
Born an earthling, formed of clay,
Seek to praise the Lord Jehovah,
Who has turned my night to day?
How can such a one of Adam,
Long estranged from God above,
Hope to find His blessed favor,
Hope to know His blessed love?

For His eye is far too pure to
Look upon this sinful frame.
His own perfect Being never
Can accept my sin and shame.
Oh that I knew where to seek Him,
Oh that He might smile on me!
But unless my sin is covered,
Such a joy can never be.

But, oh listen, do you hear it,
Do you hear the glad new song?
It is telling how the Savior
Has been sent to save his own!
Blessed Jesus died to save me,
Save me from the fatal sting.
Now I know that He’s my Savior;
Praises to my Lord and King!

Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Greater than all my sin;
How shall my tongue describe it,
Where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden,
Setting my spirit free;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus,
Deeper than the mighty rolling sea;
Higher than the mountain, sparkling like a fountain,
All-sufficient grace for even me!
Broader than the scope of my transgressions,
Greater far than all my sin and shame;
Oh, magnify the precious name of Jesus,
Praise His Name!

Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Reaching to save the lost,
By it I have been pardoned,
Saved to the uttermost;
Chains have been torn asunder,
Giving me liberty;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Reaching the most defiled,
By its transforming power,
Making him God’s dear child,
Purchasing peace and heaven
For all eternity—
And the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Day by day and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
He whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what he deems best –
Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.

Every day the Lord himself is near me,
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares he feign would bear and cheer me,
He whose name is Counselor and Power.
The protection of his child and treasure
Is a charge that on himself he laid:
“As your days, your strength shall be in measure” –
This the pledge to me he made.

Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
E’er to take, as from a father’s hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.

Hark! the Jubilee is sounding,
O the joyful news is come,
Free salvation is proclaimed
In and through God’s only Son.
Now we have complete redemption,
Thru the meek and lowly Lamb,
Glory, honor, and salvation,
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

Now let each one cease from wand’ring,
Come and follow Christ the Way;
We shall all receive a blessing,
If from him we do not stray;
Golden moments we’ve neglected,
Yet the Lord forgives again.
Glory, honor, and salvation;
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

Come, let’s run our race with patience,
Looking unto Christ the Lord,
Who doth live and reign forever,
With his Father and our God:
He is worthy to be praised,
He is our exalted king,
Glory, honor, and salvation;
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

Come, dear children, praise your Jesus,
Praise him, praise him evermore.
May his great love now constrain us,
His great name for to adore:
O then let us join together,
Crowns of glory to obtain,
Glory, honor, and salvation;
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

Sing the wondrous love of Jesus,
Sing his mercy and his grace;
In the mansions bright and blessed
He’ll prepare for us a place.

Refrain: When we all get to heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus
We’ll sing and shout the victory.

While we walk the pilgrim pathway
Clouds will overspread the sky,
But when traveling days are over,
Not a shadow, not a sigh.

Onward to the prize before us
Soon His beauty we’ll behold.
Soon the pearly gates will open,
We shall tread the streets of gold.

Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving every day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.

Rejoice, the Lord is King:
Your God and King adore!
Rejoice, give thanks and sing,
And triumph evermore.
Lift up your heart,
Lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Jesus, the Savior, reigns,
The God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains,
He took his seat above;
Lift up your heart,
Lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

His kingdom cannot fail,
He rules o’er earth and heav’n;
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus giv’n:
Lift up your heart,
Lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Christ Jesus lay in death’s strong bands,
For our offenses given;
But now at God’s right hand He stands
And brings us light from heaven.
Therefore let us joyful be
And sing to God right thankfully
Loud songs of hallelujah.

It was a strange and dreadful strife
When life and death contended;
The victory remained with life,
The reign of death was ended.
Holy Scripture plainly saith
That death is swallowed up by death;
His sting is lost forever.

Here the true Paschal Lamb we see,
Whom God so freely gave us;
He died on the accursed tree –
So strong His love to save us.
See, His blood doth mark our door;
Faith points to it, death passes o’er,
And Satan cannot harm us.

So let us keep the festival
Whereto the Lord invites us;
Christ is Himself the Joy of all,
The Sun that warms and lights us.
By His grace He doth impart
Eternal sunshine to the heart;
The night of sin is ended.

Then let us feast this joyful day
On Christ the bread of heaven
The word of Grace that purged away
The old and evil leaven
Christ alone our souls will feed
He is our meat and drink indeed
Faith lives upon no other!

Blow ye the trumpet, blow!
The gladly solemn sound,
Let all the nations know,
To earth’s remotest bound.

Refrain: The year of jubilee is come!
The year of jubilee is come!
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

Jesus, our great high priest,
Hath full atonement made;
Ye weary spirits, rest;
Ye mournful souls, be glad:

Extol the Lamb of God,
The sin atoning Lamb;
Redemption by his blood
Through all the lands proclaim.

Ye slaves of sin and hell,
Your liberty receive,
And safe in Jesus dwell,
And blest in Jesus live.

When peace like a river attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot Thou hast taught me to say,
“It is well, it is well with my soul!”

Refrain: It is well with my soul!
It is well, it is well with my soul!

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought—
My sin, not in part, but the whole,
Is nailed to His Cross, and I bear it no more;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back like a scroll.
The trump shall resounds, and the Lord shall descend,
“Even so, it is well with my soul”.

Awake! awake! and sing the blessed story;
Awake! awake! and let your song of praise arise;
Awake! awake! the earth is full of glory,
And light is beaming from the radiant skies;
(Men) The rocks and rills, the vales and hills resound with gladness,
All nature joins to sing the triumph song.

The Lord Jehovah reigns and sin is backward hurled!
Rejoice! rejoice! lift heart and voice, Jehovah reigns!
Proclaim His sov’reign pow’r to all the world,
And let His glorious banner be unfurled!
Jehovah reigns! Rejoice! rejoice! rejoice! Jehovah reigns!

Ring out! ring out! O bells of joy and gladness;
Repeat, repeat anew the story o’er again,
Till all the earth shall lose its weight of sadness,
And shout anew the glorious refrain;
(Men) With angels in the heights, sing of the great salvation,
He wrested from the hand of sin and death.

The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord lift his countenance upon you,
And give you peace,
And give you peace.
The Lord make his face to shine upon you,
And be gracious unto you,
And be gracious;
The Lord be gracious, gracious unto you.
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen,
Amen, Amen, Amen.
