Title: Behold Your Little Ones
Meter: 6 6 6 6 8 8

1.
Behold your little ones,
Behold their innocence,
Behold your daughters, sons.
And know their relevance

To Heavenly Father’s perfect plan
They lead us home the best they can.

2.
Behold your little ones,
Behold their love and joy,
Behold your daughters, sons,
The faith that they employ.

To testify that God is real
They magnify the hope we feel.

3.
Behold your little ones,
Behold them knelt in prayer,
Behold your daughters, sons,
And sweetly be aware,

That heaven’s halls are reached by these,
Who humbly pray upon their knees.

4.
Behold your little ones,
Behold where their lives lead,
Behold your daughters, sons,
Who point to heaven indeed.

If someday we would join them there,
Our hearts as theirs we must prepare.

Hymn Text: The Final Time

Title: The Final Time
Meter: 8 8 8 8 8 8

1.
This is the final time we’ll prune,
For so the harvest’s coming soon.
When each who labored takes his pay.
The trees with fire shall pass away.

O Lord of Harvest, at the end,
We pray Thee laborers to send.

2.
This is the final time we’ll reap,
While other workers flee or sleep.
The precious fruit and grain we’ll store,
Within God’s garners evermore.

O Lord of Harvest, at the end,
We pray Thee laborers to send.

3.
This is the final time before,
The promised feast God has in store.
When all who labored then may rest,
Be counted there among the blessed.

O Lord of Harvest, at the end,
We pray Thee laborers to send.

1.
Our weaknesses will pass away,
Our sorrow will no longer stay,
When earth is made again, like new,
The troubles of the night are through.

With gratitude, we wait upon the Lord,
For that bright day, when all shall be restored.

2.
Our sicknesses all soon will cease,
Our warring lands will be at peace.
When Christ returns, again to reign,
All nations will true rest obtain.

With gratitude, we wait upon the Lord,
For that bright day, when all shall be restored.

3.
Our pain of ev’ry kind will end,
We’ll see each long departed friend.
When angels call for us to rise,
And join them in the holy skies.

With gratitude, we wait upon the Lord,
For that bright day, when all shall be restored.

Hymn Text: Wise, Not Foolish

Title: Wise, Not Foolish
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

1.
The scriptures tell of virgins ten
Awaiting the Bridegroom.
But when he’d come, they knew not when,
But knew it must be soon.

Then five, they filled their lamps with oil,
And watched all through the day.
But five thought this too great a toil,
And cast their chance away.

2.
Though faithfully they watched and prayed,
He still did not appear.
The foolish five reclined, delayed,
Until the night drew near.

Then five, they rose to join the feast
And used their lamps to see.
But five soon found it was too late
To pay the entrance fee.

3.
The foolish five could not partake
Of others’ borrowed light.
They struggled with so much at stake
To navigate the night.

Then five partook and did adore
The Bridegroom’s holy face.
But five remained without the door,
And left in deep disgrace.

4.
In latter days we still await,
The coming of our Lord.
We labor, though the hour grows late
To make sure we have stored,

The precious oil within our hearts,
Allowing us to see,
The pathway when His feast day starts,
And wise, not foolish be.

Hymn Text: Their Precious Cost

Title: Their Precious Cost
Meter: 8 8 8 8 10 10

1.
The sheep that wanders on its own,
That willingly has gone astray,
Unto the Shepherd still is known,
And He will seek without delay.

Unto the Shepherd, we are never lost,
He knows His sheep, He knows their precious cost.

2.
The golden coin once lost by chance,
Now hidden in a shadowed place,
Is sought by more than just a glance,
But through the house at frantic pace.

Unto our master, we are never lost,
For he knows each coin, He knows its precious cost.

3.
The wasteful son, who took his part
And squandered it with awful sin.
His father kept within his heart,
Saw him afar, and brought him in.

Unto our Father, we are never loss,
For He knows each one, He knows each precious cost.

Hymn Text: The Lord’s Bounty

Title: The Lord’s Bounty
Meter: 8 8 8 8

1.
Though all my life I bless and serve,
I never could at all deserve,
The pardon that Thou givest me,
The chance to cast my cares on Thee.

2.
The gift of every mortal breath,
The shield against the sting of death,
The pow’r to act and think and move,
The wonders that Thy love will prove.

3.
The love of family and friends
The strength of bonds that know no ends
Thy voice that comforts and inspires,
The answers that my heart inquires.

4.
For all these things and many more,
All blessings that Thou hast in store,
We thank Thee, Lord, with cheerful voice,
And in Thy bounty we rejoice!

Hymn Text: Our Spirits in This World are Not at Home

Title: Our Spirits in This World are Not at Home
Meter: 10 10 13 11

1.
Our spirits in this world are not at home,
For now it’s from our Father that we roam.
Now hidden by a veil, clouds of glory still we trail,
From that brightest world that is our truest home.

2.
Our spirits in this world still crave the love
That first they felt when once they dwelt above,
And still on earth we feel love from parents who are real,
Who send glimpses through each other of their love.

3.
Our spirits in this world must not long stay,
For mortal things must surely pass away,
Replaced by holy light at the end of mortal night,
We’ll rejoice that we have come back home to stay.
