Title: All Things Denote
Meter: 8 8 8 8
Topic: nature, creation, God

1.

All things denote a holy hand—
The wonders of the sea and land.
The regal orb of sun in flight,
The stars that come to dance at night.

2.
All things denote a holy mind—
All living things of every kind.
From creatures too small to behold,
To tow’ring redwoods cent’ries old.

3.
All things denote a holy heart—
The splendors of all nature’s art,
The majesty of mountains grand
The canvas of each fertile land.

4.
All things denote a holy king—
The choruses all creatures sing.
The praise the elements afford
To worship their celestial Lord.

In God’s house, the veil is thin
And He speaks to those within.

That the Spirit’s voice may fill
Ev’ry hall with truth revealed,
The voice of God unconcealed.

Though every brick and nail,
Those who come will there progress,
And will calm mortal distress.

Title: Are Those That You Allow
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: thoughts, resisting temptation, virtue

1.
When driving out dark, gloomy thoughts,
Put new ones in their place.
When fear or dread the canvas blots,
Paint faith to clear the space.

Ev’ry moment of ev’ry day,
You choose what you think now.
The things that go, or things that stay
Are those that you allow.

2.
When temptation enters the mind,
Let virtue drive it out.
Instead new thoughts of beauty find,
Let seeds of service sprout.

Ev’ry moment of ev’ry day,
You choose what you think now.
The things that go, or things that stay
Are those that you allow.

3.
When pessimism’s thorns appear,
Arise and cut them back.
The joy of Christ your mind will clear,
And place you back on track.

Ev’ry moment of ev’ry day,
You choose what you think now.
The things that go, or things that stay
Are those that you allow.

Hymn Text: Faith is a Power

Date: September 26th, 2017
Title: Faith is a Power
Meter: 7 6 7 6 D
Topic: faith, power, miracles

1.
Faith is a pow’r that can move,
Not only an expression,
And through it, our God will prove,
We’re in His possession.

The mountains lie low before,
A single, faithful word.
And tempests will cease to roar,
When faith’s voice they have heard.

2.
Faith is a pow’r that can heal,
Mind and body fully.
Its holy sight can reveal,
What we see but dully.

All broken vessels are whole,
When they’re with faith rebuilt.
For faith can each hurt console,
We bloom and do not wilt.

3.
Faith is a pow’r that can raise,
Even those who are dead,
Faith can frame the perfect praise—
We would fall short instead.

The sting of death is turned back,
The grave’s vic’try is void,
When each one faith does not lack,
And that faith is employed.

Hymn Text: The Holy Ghost Within

Date: September 25th, 2017
Title: The Holy Ghost Within
Meter: 8 7 8 7 D
Topic: the Holy Ghost, countenance, power

1.
Having the Holy Ghost within
Your countenance will brighten,
No matter what your hair or skin,
His beauty will enlighten.

So that you radiate God’s face,
In your own bright appearance,
Endowed with His celestial grace,
And holy perseverance.

2.
Having the Holy Ghost with you,
Your vision will make clearer.
And easily you’ll see what’s true,
As you approach God nearer.

That which the world does not see,
Like the sunlight will be plain.
You will see things as they should be,
And not through the fog and rain.

3.
Having the Holy Ghost along
Your shoulders then will strengthen,
Your arms and legs will be made strong,
So that your stride will lengthen.

The burdens that seemed much too great,
Like puffs of steam then will lift.
Your power will not wane, abate,
As you’re worthy of the gift.

The Spirit sheds light on the truth
But also falsehood as well.

Purest truth its voice will tell.

And when you should then retreat.
It knows your ev’ry circumstance,
And speaks with wisdom complete.

The Spirit foils the tempter’s plan,
And he drives temptation back.
He shows the way much better than,
Other voices that attack.

Hymn Text: How Joy Comes

Date: September 23rd, 2017
Title: How Joy Comes
Meter: 8 6 8 6
Topic: joy, priorities, time

1.
Our joy comes from focusing on
The things that matter most.
All earthly things will soon be gone,
In them we cannot boast.

2.
Our joy comes from putting things first,
That touch eternity.
Instead of those which can, at worst,
Keep you from being free.

3.
Our joy comes from filling our days,
With treasure that will stay,
And heading not the world’s ways,
That must all pass away.
