We'll Talk it Over
Words and Music by Ira Stanphill
© 1949

 

Tho' shadows deepen, and my heart bleeds,
I will not question the way He leads;
This side of Heaven we know in part,
I will not question a broken heart.

Chorus

We'll talk it over in the bye and bye.
We'll talk it over, my Lord and I.
I'll ask the reasons - He'll tell me why,
When we talk it over in the bye and bye.

I'll trust His leading, He'll never fail,
Thru darkest tunnels or misty vales.
Obey his bidding and faithful be,
Tho' only one step ahead I see.

Chorus


We'll talk it over in the bye and bye.
We'll talk it over, my Lord and I.
I'll ask the reasons - He'll tell me why,
When we talk it over in the bye and bye.

I'll hide my heartache behind a smile
And wait for reasons 'til after while.
And tho' He try me, I know I'll find
That all my burdens are silver lined.

Chorus

We'll talk it over in the bye and bye.
We'll talk it over, my Lord and I.
I'll ask the reasons - He'll tell me why,
When we talk it over in the bye and bye.

 

 

 

Abide With Me
Words by Henry F. Lyte
Music by William H. Monk

John 15:5
"I am the vine, ye are the branches:  He that abideth in me, and I in him,
the same bringeth forth much fruit:  for without me ye can do nothing."

 

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile;
And, though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee,
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting?  Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

 

Are You Washed in The Blood?
Words and Music by Elisha A. Hoffman
1878

Revelation 7:14
"These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have
washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

 

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Refrain
Are you washed (are you washed) in the blood (in the blood),
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless?  Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you walking daily by the Savior?s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Refrain

Are you washed (are you washed) in the blood (in the blood),
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless?  Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

 

Refrain
Are you washed (are you washed) in the blood (in the blood),In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?

Are your garments spotless?  Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

Refrain
Are you washed (are you washed) in the blood (in the blood),
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless?  Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

  

 

At The Cross
Words by Isaac Watts
Music by Charles H. Gabriel
1905

 

Alas, and did my Savior bleed?
And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?

 

Refrain
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!

Was it for crimes that I had done,
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity!  grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

Refrain
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!

Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
For man the creature's sin.

Refrain

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!

But drops of grief can ne'er repay
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give my self away
'Tis all that I can do.

Refrain
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!

Make Me a Blessing
Words by Ira B. Wilson
Music by George S. Schuler

Genesis 12:2
"And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee,
and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:"

 

Out on the highways and byways of life,
Many are the weary and sad;
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,
Making the sorrowing glad.

 

Chorus

Make me a blessing, make me a blessing;
Out of my life may Jesus shine.
Make me a blessing, O Saviour I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,
Tell of His pow'r to forgive;
Others will trust Him if only you prove
True every moment you live.

Chorus
Make me a blessing, make me a blessing;
Out of my life may Jesus shine.
Make me a blessing, O Saviour I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Give as 'twas given to you in your need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed,
Unto your mission be true.

Chorus
Make me a blessing, make me a blessing;
Out of my life may Jesus shine.
Make me a blessing, O Saviour I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

 

 

Blessed Assurance
Words by Fanny Crosby
Music by Phoebe P. Knapp
1873

Hebrews 10:22
"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,
having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience,
and our bodies washed with pure water.

 

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

Refrain
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

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

Refrain
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

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

Refrain
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

 

 

 

Beulah Land
Words by Edgar P. Stites
Music by John R. Sweney

Isaiah 36:17
"Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land,
a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards."

I've reached the land of corn and wine,
And all its riches freely mine;
Here shines undimmed one blissful day,
For all my night has passed away.

 

Refrain
O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land,
As on thy highest mount I stand,
I look away across the sea,
Where mansions are prepared for me,
And view the shining glory shore,
My Heav'n, my home forever more!

My Savior comes and walks with me,
And sweet communion here have we;
He gently leads me by His hand,
For this is Heaven's border land.

Refrain
O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land,
As on thy highest mount I stand,
I look away across the sea,
Where mansions are prepared for me,
And view the shining glory shore,
My Heav'n, my home forever more!

A sweet perfume upon the breeze,
Is borne from ever vernal trees,
And flow'rs, that never fading grow
Where streams of life forever flow.

Refrain
O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land,
As on thy highest mount I stand,
I look away across the sea,
Where mansions are prepared for me,
And view the shining glory shore,
My Heav'n, my home forever more!

The zephyrs seem to float to me,
Sweet sounds to Heaven's melody,
As angels with the white robed throng
Join in the sweet redemption song.

Refrain
O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land,
As on thy highest mount I stand,
I look away across the sea,
Where mansions are prepared for me,
And view the shining glory shore,
My Heav'n, my home forever more!

 

 

 

Because He Lives
Words and music by William J. Gaither
© 1971

Matthew 28:6
"He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay."

 

God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;
He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!

 

 

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he gives;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

And then one day, I'll cross the river,
I'll fight life's final war with pain;
And then, as death gives way to vict'ry,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

 

 

Oh, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing
Words by Charles Wesley
Music by Carl G. Glasser

Revelation 5:11
"And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne
and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times
ten thousand, and thousands of thousands."

 

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemerís praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs 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;
íTis music in the sinnerís ears,
íTis 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.

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

 

Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior
Words by Fanny Crosby
Music by W. Howard Doane
1870

Genesis 18:3
"And said, My LORD, if now I have found favor in thy sight,
pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:"

 

Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

 

Refrain
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief,
Kneeling there in deep contrition;
Help my unbelief.

Refrain
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.

Refrain
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Thou the Spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
Whom in Heavín but Thee?

Refrain
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

 

The Old Rugged Cross
Words and music by George Bennard - 1913

1 Corinthians 1:18
"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."

 

          On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
          The emblem of suffering and shame;
          And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
          For a world of lost sinners was slain.

           

            Refrain
            So Iíll cherish the old rugged cross,
            Till my trophies at last I lay down;
            I will cling to the old rugged cross,
            And exchange it some day for a crown.

          O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
          Has a wondrous attraction for me;
          For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
          To bear it to dark Calvary.

           

            Refrain
            So Iíll cherish the old rugged cross,
            Till my trophies at last I lay down;
            I will cling to the old rugged cross,
            And exchange it some day for a crown.

          In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
          A wondrous beauty I see,
          For ítwas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
          To pardon and sanctify me.

           

            Refrain
            So Iíll cherish the old rugged cross,
            Till my trophies at last I lay down;
            I will cling to the old rugged cross,
            And exchange it some day for a crown.

          To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;
          Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
          Then Heíll call me some day to my home far away,
          Where His glory forever Iíll share.
           

        • Refrain
          So Iíll cherish the old rugged cross,
          Till my trophies at last I lay down;
          I will cling to the old rugged cross,
          And exchange it some day for a crown.
