Hymn Text: Fear Cannot Our Hearts

Date: June 30th, 2017
Title: Fear Cannot Change Our Hearts
Meter: 6 6 6 6 D
Topic: fear, faith

1.
Fear cannot change our hearts
It holds but fleeting pow’r
Fear makes some act their parts
As they shrink and cower.

Though it may change our deeds
It does not change the mind
It is not how God leads
Nor how we peace will find.

2.
Fear cannot mix with light,
The Priesthood from it flees,
Those who bear its might,
Must flee it like disease.

No influence must be,
Exerted through our fear,
For all must then be free,
To be free agents here.

3.
Fear cannot us exalt,
This can but faith alone,
Faith gives the earth its salt
But fear is bitter sown.

It cannot bring forth fruit
It will not let us grow,
It can sweet joy uproot,
Unless we overthrow.

Title: Our Freedom
Meter: 8 8 8 8
Topic: freedom, liberty, agency

Our freedom is our agency,
Our God ordained we should be free.
Though men and devils bind with chains
Our mighty God holds freedom’s reigns.

2.
Our freedom is a holy right
And it drives back the mists of night.
Now all Gods children should defend
This precious gift that God did send.

3.
Our freedom is now under threat
By those who slumber and forget.
The price that others had to pay
To pave the road of freedom’s way.

4.
Our freedom will first be complete
When Christ descends with message sweet
That’s all are from the tempter free,
And shall enjoy true liberty.

Hymn Text: Our Faith Must Not Remain a Seed

Date: June 28th, 2017

Title: Our Faith Must Not Remain a Seed

Meter: 8 8 8 8 D

Topic: faith, growth

1.
Our faith must not remain a seed
It can take root, bloom, and flourish,
If we pluck up each thorn and weed
And commit the seed to nourish.

With patience looking to the fruit
As we hope to see it growing
With confidence in the deep root
In its power of bestowing.

2.
Our faith must not remain a sprout.
It can stretch with reaching fingers,
With leaves and fruit then springing out,
The shade and the scent long lingers.

With patience looking to the fruit
As we hope to see it growing
With confidence in the deep root
In its power of bestowing.

3.
Our faith must not remain alone
It can grow till it spreads abroad.
Seed after seed then be sown,
As you grow in faith in God.

With patience looking to the fruit
As we hope to see it growing
With confidence in the deep root
In its power of bestowing.

Hymn Text: If You Resist the Devil

Date: June 26th, 2017
Title: If You Resist the Devil
Meter: 7 6 7 6 D
Topic: temptation, deliverance, adversity

1.
If you resist the Devil
Then he will quickly flee
The Serpent wants to revel
In all our misery.

But He works in darkest mist.
And cannot stand the light
So he will not long resist
If we put up a fight.

2.
If you resist temptation
Then it will fall away.
If you flee its location,
It will not with you stay.

Nothing will overtake you
That is too hard to bear,
For God is faithful and true,
He will deliver there.

Hymn Text: The Gospel Pure is Perfect

Title: The Gospel Pure is Perfect
Meter: 7 6 7 6 D
Topic: gospel, refinement, God’s plan

1.
The Gospel pure is perfect
It will each one refine
It teaches us to reflect
Upon the plan divine.

But still this true direction,
Relies on us below,
Who’ve not achieved perfection
It’s blessing to bestow.

2.
The Gospel pure brings beauty,
Beyond all mortal ways,
It strengthens us for duty,
It purifies our gaze.

But this resplendent blessing,
Relies on faith to thrive,
On effort for progressing,
Each day we are alive.

One day we all will stand
At our God’s pleasing bar,
We will then understand
All things as they are.

All the prophets will speak,
And their words we’ll recall,
God will not condemn the weak,
But all the proud will fall.

One day we all will tell
Of what we did below,
And if we kept God’s words well
He will all things bestow.

All the prophets will speak,
And their words we’ll recall,
God will not condemn the weak,
But all the proud will fall.
3.
One day we all will live
In kingdoms filled with light
For all those who God forgives
Will dwell within His sight.

All the prophets will speak,
And their words we’ll recall,
God will not condemn the weak,
But all the proud will fall.
