Hymn Text: The New Jerusalem

Date: March 30th, 2017

Title: The New Jerusalem

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: New Jerusalem, Zion

1.

The New Jerusalem will rise

When God gives the command

When He the light and truth supplies

To obey this command.

 

If we would enter through her gates

He must be wholly clean

By cleansing envy, pride, and hate

Into a holy sheen.

2.

The New Jerusalem won’t fall

A thousand years she’ll stand.

The home of all who heed God’s call

Who witness His own hand

 

Great temples on its streets will rise

The air will fill with song,

And truth will rain from heaven’s skies

As angels sing along.

3.

The New Jerusalem is built

By those with purest hearts

Who have been washed from earthly guilt

Who did not wait to start

 

To fill their lamps, to wash their robes

To watch and to prepare.

In every region of the globe

Until God calls them there.

Title: The World Offers Sandy Foundations

Topic: foundations, Christ, preparation

1.

The world offers sandy foundations

That cannot through stormy days stand

That will not support aspirations

No matter what we’ve hoped or planned.

 

O, be wise, what can we say more?

Build on Christ’s rock at your core.

The church offers solid foundations

Rooted in Christ so they remain.

It’s building in all the world’s nations

So that each a high tower obtain.

 

O, be wise, what can we say more?

Build on Christ’s rock at your core.

3.

The time grows short to build foundations

The storms grow more frequent and bold

God’s word now sounds to all creations—

For this is the last time foretold.

 

O, be wise, what can we say more?

Build on Christ’s rock at your core.

Hymn Text: Trust in the Words of Prophets

Date: March 27th, 2017

Title: Trust in the Words of Prophets

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic:

1.

Trust in the words of prophets though

They are but mortal men.

For God His will to them does show

And speaks his counsel when

 

The fiery darts of Satan fly

And mists of darkness blind.

When nations for God’s succor cry

And know not where to find.

2.

Heed all the words of prophets well

For they can see afar.

And every one since Adam fell

Shines like a guiding star.

 

They see the craftiness of men

Who lie in wait, deceive.

They quickly can alert us then

And grant us a reprieve.

3.

Keep all the words that prophets speak

As treasure from the earth

For they grant power to the weak

They are of greatest worth.

 

When even the elect can stray

Stand firm on holy ground:

The truth that will not pass away

In revelations found.

Hymn Text: From a Single Prayer

Date: March 26th, 2017

Title: From A Single Prayer

Meter: 6 6 6 6 D

Topic:

1.

A single, sacred grove,

A single fervent prayer,

A single boy who strove

To find his answers there.

 

A single question brought

A single earnest plea

A single person taught

About eternity.

2.

Now many temples gleam

Now many prophets speak

Now many truths can stream

To bless all those who seek.

 

Now many scriptures teach

Now many songs arise

Now many lands can reach

The purest gospel prize.

3.

Soon all will hear God’s voice

Soon all will understand.

Soon all will have the choice

To take His holy hand.

 

Soon all will be made new

Soon all will be complete.

Soon all trials are through

And our rest will be sweet.

Hymn Text: At the Last Day

Date: March 25th, 2017

Title: At the Last Day

Meter: 10 10 10 10 10 10

Topic: supplication, benediction

1.
Our words will condemn us at the last day
Every unkind or false thing we say,
Every thoughtless remark that we allow
So then it is best to prevent them now.

For those who repent forgiveness will find
When bringing forth fruit with all heart and mind.

2.
Our thoughts will condemn us at the last hour
When we abuse this God-given power
To conjure up sin and mortal desires
Instead of the goodness, which God requires.

For those who repent forgiveness will find
When bringing forth fruit with all heart and mind.

3.
Our deeds will condemn us at the last time
When we reject the gospel sublime
And act in pride to stray on our own,
Only Christ can bring us at one, atone.

For those who repent forgiveness will find
When bringing forth fruit with all heart and mind.
