Hymn Text: The Master Calls

Title: The Master Calls

1.
The truths and keys that long have slept
Burst forth like dawn’s first rays.
As well the work our Lord has kept
For these the latter days.

The Master calls His lab’rers
To harvest through this hour,
As we look to see the Savior
Come a-gain with mighty pow’r.

2.
The records of old prophets’ words
Stand plainly in our view.
As well the words of living ones
Confirm their words are true.

The Master calls His servants
To listen for His voice,
As we work out our salvation
As we make each daily choice.

3.
The ancient temples rise again.
Endowed with priest-hood-light,
We worthy servants work therein,
To bind our fam’lies tight.

The Master calls His workers
To stand in for the dead,
As we do the work of an-gels
In the temples in their stead.

4.
The testimony bourn today
Will reach each earthly land.
And Israel will be gathered in,
By heaven’s holy hand.

The Master calls His preachers
To sound the truth abroad
As we strive to bring our neighbors
Here into the fold of God.

Hymn Text: United in Our Worthy Cause

Title: United in Our Worthy Cause

1.
United in our worthy cause,
We serve the Father here because,
He needs our hands to serve below,
That His children we serve of His love may know,
That His children His love now may know.

Be ye clean, those who serve our dear Lord!
For His pow’r and His light are restored,
For if we would wield His power today
Then we must live His way.

Be ye kind, be ye gentle and meek.
Serve with love, and you’ll never be weak.
Remove ev’ry thought and feeling of pride,
So God may with you a-bide.

2.
United in our com-mon goal,
We see our God-appointed role,
His work and glory here to do,
And to stand for the things that we know are true,
And to stand for all things that are true.

Be ye brave those who stand for His cause!
He will help you despite any flaws.
For we must not do this labor alone,
But with our Cornerstone!

Be ye true, be ye loyal, and bold.
Feel the wonder of all you’ve been told.
And trust in the Lord each mountain to move,
And He His great pow’r will prove!

Hymn Text: In the Master’s Hand

The Master’s Hand

1. O, Father, may I be the strings
Within the Master’s hand
To craft a song that sweetly sings
Thy praise through ev’ry land.

Our careful notes shall blend in song,
Creating harmony,
Each vital part, resounding strong,
In holy symphony.

2. O, Father, may I be the tool
Within the Master’s hand
To craft a sculpture through Thy rule,
As Thou hast surely planned.

Each time I strike against the stone,
A detail is revealed.
My chisel could not shape alone
Thy masterpiece, concealed.

3. O, Father, may I be the brush
Within the Master’s hand
To craft a painting, bright and lush,
I scarcely understand.

At journey’s end I’ll gaze upon
The canvas of my days;
Each stroke of light or dark thereon
Will paint thy wond’rous ways.

Hymn Text: All Alone

Title: All Alone
Meter: 8 8 8 8 D

1.
Each child of God can now rely
On Jesus Christ to bear their load,
And help and comfort to supply,
To walk beside them on the road.

But Jesus suffered all alone,
Forsaken on His darkest day—
The hour in which He would atone,
For Him, it was the only way.

2.
Each child of God can know for sure
That someone knows their ev’ry pain,
And so can all their trials endure,
For heaven’s succor will remain.

But Jesus suffered all alone,
Abandoned by each closest friend.
As He was left to bleed, atone,
To answer justice till the end.

3.
Each child of God can hear His voice,
To counsel, comfort, and correct.
And so may ev’ry day rejoice,
And never languish in neglect.

But Jesus suffered all alone,
Deserted as he hung to die.
The only way He could atone,
And mercy for us all supply.

Hymn Text: The Natural Man

Title: The Natural Man
Meter: 8 8 8 8 D

1.
The natural man is often weak
And so must lean on Christ to be,
Refined until he too is meek,
And from this natural weakness free.

My weakness will soon master me,
Unless I master it instead.
The grace of Christ will let me be,
Refined as He stands in my stead.

2.
The natural man cannot be pure,
And so must far from God remain.
His strength alone cannot endure,
Unless the Savior cleans his stain.

My weakness will soon master me,
Unless I master it instead.
The grace of Christ will let me be,
Refined as He stands in my stead.

3.
The natural man will surely fail,
And so must change down to his core.
Then born anew, he will prevail,
For he is God’s forevermore.

My weakness will soon master me,
Unless I master it instead.
The grace of Christ will let me be,
Refined as He stands in my stead.

Hymn Text: Simple Things

Title: Simple Things
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

1.
Each time the Lord asks mighty things,
We stand prepared to do.
Each great commandment that He brings,
To see our mission through.

But when the Lord asks simple things,
We never must forget,
That blessings come from what they bring,
And they are ours to get.

2.
From simple seeds proceed the trees,
That stretch up broad and high.
From many drops arise the seas,
That many lands supply.

Each simple pray’r can be a seed,
That yet may grow and sprout.
Each act may be a drop indeed,
To wash me in and out.

3.
A single spark can kindle fires,
That glow to warm the soul.
A single heart with good desires,
Can reach a lofty goal.

The Spirit’s whispered word can spark,
The fire of faith within.
A willing heart that will embark,
Can conquer any sin.
