Title: Our Willing Savior
Meter: 8 8 8 8 8 8
Topic: sacrifice, Atonement, offering

1.
Our Savior willingly did all,
We must be willing so to do.
Without Him, we would surely fall.
Without Him, all our hopes are through.

He gave to us, we must give back.
Those who give their mites will not lack.

2.
Our Savior willingly bore all
So we must be willing to lift
Our burdens, and we will not fall
Because of His heavenly gift.

3.
Our Savior willingly took all,
So we must be willing to take,
His yoke, though our shoulders are small,
His hand, though we tremble and ache.

He gave to us, we must give back.
Those who give their mites will not lack.

Title: Our Wages
Meter: 8 6 8 6
Topic: obedience, service, eternal reward

1.
God’s wages are love, joy, and peace.
We earn we Him serve.
And His wages will never cease,
Are more than we deserve.

Satan’s wages are guilt and pain
We earn if we him serve.
He leaves us alone in the rain
And takes what we deserve.

The choice of our wage is our own.
We earn from our master—
One who will us heal and atone,
One who brings disaster.

Hymn Text: The Cost of Righteousness

Date: July 22nd, 2017
Title: The Cost of Righteousness
Meter: 10 8 10 8
Topic: obedience, righteousness

1.
The cost of righteousness is not too high
In the light of what we receive.
We must not achieve perfection, but try
To act on all that we believe.

2.
The cost of righteousness looks very small
When compared to all God’s treasures.
He gives us that which has worth above all
Much fairer than earthly pleasures.

3.
The cost of righteousness still must be paid,
Though simple and clear be the way.
God’s loving commandments must be obeyed.
Before God’s great wealth can display.

We must with true love serve.
It is not enough Christ’s story to tell,
We must His word observe.

We must truly be new.
It is not enough to speak of God’s light,
We must let it shine through.

Date: July 20th, 2017
Title: God Wants Our Will
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: agency, submission, consecration

1.
God wants more than our time and work,
He wants more than our wealth.
Everything is His handiwork,
And He sends breath and health.

Instead we should wholly be His
Submitting all our will,
By granting Him all that there is
In return, He will fill.

2.
God wants more than a partial gift,
He wants more than a piece.
He anchors us so we don’t drift,
His blessings never cease.

Instead we should wholly be His
Submitting all our will,
By granting Him all that there is
In return, He will fill.

3.
God wants more than us now and then,
He wants more than one day.
For when we fall, we’ll rise again,
And ever in light stay.

Instead we should wholly be His
Submitting all our will,
By granting Him all that there is
In return, He will fill.

Title: What Greater Peace?

Meter: 8 8 8 8

Topic: the temple, peace, holiness

1.
What greater peace can mortals know?
What greater gifts does God bestow?
Than in his holy house of prayer,
For He, Himself, is dwelling there.

What greater love can one possess?
What greater fount of holiness?
Than in the hallowed walls sublime,
Of temples in this latter time.

3.
What greater light can one perceive?
What greater reason to believe?
Than in the palace of our King,
Where holy angels walk and sing.

4.
What greater love can one then feel?
What greater witness that God’s real?
Than kneeling at His throne and feet,
Where happiness is whole, complete.

To the dwelling place of God’s love.
