1.
How blessed are they who overcome,
Who our Savior emulate.
Who bear all things, not only some,
Who endure, though they must wait.

How blessed are they who overcome!
They bear all things, not only some.

2.
How blessed are they who bear their cross,
As our Savior bore His load.
Who carry it through bitter loss.
And along the rugged road.

How blessed are they who bear their cross!
They carry it through bitter loss.

3.
How blessed are they who live with thorns.
That bring pain throughout their lives.
Who bear the world’s shame and scorn.
Yet grow with faith that survives.

How blessed are they who live with thorns.
They bear the world’s shame and scorn.

Title: Let Us Remember Him
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

1.
Our Savior e’er remembers us
Let us remember Him
Even when our smiles fade
And memories grow dim.

On His hands He’s graven us
Our every hair is known.
He hopes that we will take His name
We must not strive alone.

2.
Our Savior does not think on sins
Once we humbly repent
We tood should no more dwell on them
For this, God’s Son was sent.

On His hands He’s graven us
Our every hair is known.
He hopes that we will take His name
We must not strive alone.

3.
Our Savior knows our present, past
But knows our future too.
And strives to see us safely there
He teaches what to do.

On His hands He’s graven us
Our every hair is known.
He hopes that we will take His name
We must not strive alone.

Hymn Text: There’s No Good Unless You Do It

Title: There’s No Good Unless You Do It
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

1.
There’s no good unless you do it
The world is desperate for
The valiant ones to drive the dark
To make the way for more.

Of heavenly light to give us strength
To be what we can be.
All tempered through obedience
And free as God is free.

2.
There’s no good unless you do it.
To soothe each other’s pain
The lifeblood of obedience
Must flow through every vein.

How worthy is each soul to save
Most precious and divine
For when we help them through the fire
We both like treasure shine.

3.
There’s no good unless you do it
God’s work is ours to do.
The hour grows late to be God’s hands
Before this trial is through.

What joy we’ll feel if we do act.
In the appointed hour.
The moment we partake God’s task.
We activate His pow’r.

Hymn Text: No Human Heart Can Know

Title: No Human Heart Can Know
Meter: 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6

1.
No human heart can know
Nor mind can comprehend
The aid God does bestow
The grace that He does lend.

We often sell as chance
The workings of His hand.
Each happy circumstance
We scarcely understand

The care our Father gives
To each beloved child
Each moment that He lives
His love is undefiled.

2.
So softly comes His aid
We may not recognize
When His help is displayed
Though He does not disguise

His voice to those who hear
His hand to those who see,
If we but tune our ear
And keep our vision free,

He shines like subtle beams
That light our mortal course:
We are swift flowing streams
And He the holy source.

3.
What gratitude we feel
With every breath of air!
Our Father’s aid is real
And pure beyond compare.

Our humble gifts, though few
Must for a time suffice:
All that we now can do
Must be our meager price.

Faith’s sight alone can frame
His wondrous, grand design.
Faith’s voice alone proclaims
Our awe of the divine.

Both food and drink for our soul.

His day is for service as He calls

Hymn Text: The Pioneers Were Refugees

Title: The Pioneers Were Refugees
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

1.
The pioneers were refugees
Without a home to claim
Our Savior was a refugee
And He knows every name,

Of those who flee from hatred’s fire
And understands their plight.
He asks our help to succor them,
To see them through the night.

2.
The early saints were refugees,
Were strangers in the land.
And prophets have been refugees
They too do understand.

That God does love His every child
And gathers them with care.
Now our response defines us all
No matter when and where.

3.
For all of us are refugees
Sent to this world by birth
And journey through this mortal test
While we remain on earth.

If we to safety would return
In heavenly mansions strong
We must lift the languishing
And bring them too along.
