Title: What Greater Peace?

Meter: 8 8 8 8

Topic: the temple, peace, holiness

1.
What greater peace can mortals know?
What greater gifts does God bestow?
Than in his holy house of prayer,
For He, Himself, is dwelling there.

2.
What greater love can one possess?
What greater fount of holiness?
Than in the hallowed walls sublime,
Of temples in this latter time.

3.
What greater light can one perceive?
What greater reason to believe?
Than in the palace of our King,
Where holy angels walk and sing.

4.
What greater love can one then feel?
What greater witness that God’s real?
Than kneeling at His throne and feet,
Where happiness is whole, complete.

Hymn Text: The Gospel Language

Date: July 16th, 2017
Title: The Gospel Language
Meter: 10 8 10 8
Topic: missionary work, the Gospel

1.
The Gospel language is perfect and pure,
Although we may not speak it well,
We will soon learn its words as we endure,
So we many others can tell.

2.
The Gospel language can come from a child,
Sometimes clearer than those who’ve grown.
It takes a mind that is undefiled,
And a heart where faith’s seeds are sown.

3.
The Gospel language we will understand,
As we feast on God’s words always,
As we listen for God’s ev’ry command,
We’ll comprehend each line and phrase.

Hymn Text: I Thought I Knew

Date: July 15th, 2017
Title: I Thought I Knew
Meter: 6 6 6 6 D
Topic: God’s love, perspective

1.
I thought I knew deep love
Until I felt God’s touch.
His love is far above
All others by as much

As the sun stars excels,
As the mountains dwarf hills,
As oceans exceed wells,
And vast horizons fill.

2.
I thought I knew pure joy
Until I heard Gods word.
No words can I employ
To tell the joy I’ve heard.

As a feast fills the faint,
As a song stills sorrow,
As Gods touch heals a taint,
As sun greets the morrow.

3.
I thought I knew true peace
Until I knew God’s plan.
Each day I now increase,
For I know that I can,

Regain what I have lost,
And see those who have gone,
Pay all the dreadful cost
Through Christ, that I live on.

Children see with different eyes,
That do not judge another.

And love each sister, brother.

That are free from hate and spite.
Their affection they display
As they give to others light.

Children set examples now
And we would be wise to heed.

We can observe and see how
We can fill each others’ need.

God’s kingdom is made of those
Who these childlike virtues show.
