Hymn Text: Our Every Sacrifice

Date: May 15th, 2017

Title: Our Every Sacrifice

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: sacrifice, grace, reliance

1.
Our every sacrifice has worth
Though bitter be the taste.
The very reason for our birth
Without would be a waste.

For every sacrifice refines
Like a pure and fervent fire,
Until the goldsmith’s face back shines
And we’ve met his desire.

2.
Our every sacrifice has strength
Though it may bring us pain.
This life is but a little length
Our wounds will not remain.

There is no sorrow heav’n can’t heal
Nothing it can’t restore.
God’s power to reform is real
And lasts forevermore.

3.
Our every sacrifice has weight
And it can crush or build
The aid we claim is also great
When God’s arm is revealed.

Christ yokes Himself under our load
And lifts with all His might
Then bears us off along life’s road,
He makes our burdens light.

Hymn Text: Our Mother

Date: May 14th, 2017

Title: Our Mother

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: mothers, Mother in Heaven

1.
We have a Heavenly Mother
Who reigns by Father’s side.
For she must be like no other—
Refined and glorified.

Though for a while we’ve forgotten
The beauty of Her face,
Our spirits she’s begotten
And we’ll soon know Her grace.

2.
Her name and being are holy
Below we must refrain
From knowing truly and fully,
But this will not remain.

So until that grand reunion
We’ll glimpse her charity
By our sweet and blessed communion
With mothers temporally.

3.
Our earthly mothers can reflect
The perfect, holy one.
We speak with reverence and respect
Of what they all have done.

All women still may share Her light
Though mothers they are not
We see Her countenance so bright
In righteousness, they’ve wrought.

Title: Angels See Our Actions

Meter: 6 6 6 6 8 8

Topic:

1.
Angels see our actions
Though hidden from all men
Our secret infractions
When we’ve charitable been.

If every action then is known,
Then why not choose the right alone?

2.
Angels see our serving
Even in hidden ways
All our deeds deserving
Do not escape their gaze.

If every action then is known,
Then why not choose the right alone?

3.
Angels see our weakness
And hasten to attend
When we pray in meekness
Their holy aid they send.

If every action then is known,
Then why not choose the right alone?

4.
The angels see our growing
And they rejoice to see
The fruits that were showing
What they knew we could be.

If every action then is known,
Then why not choose the right alone?

Hymn Text: Every Neighbor Bears a Burden

Date: May 11th, 2017

Title: Every Neighbor Bears a Burden

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: empathy, service

1.
Every neighbor bears a burden
They struggle now to bear.
As followers of Jesus then
We can’t add to their care.

A careless word adds to the load
That another carries.
A thoughtless deed tears up the road
On which all tarry.

2.
Every neighbor bears some sorrow
More than we first can see
We can’t put off for tomorrow
To show them charity.

A thoughtful word can be as rain
On thirsty, desert ground.
A kindly deed can long sustain
Though hunger is profound.

3.
Every neighbor bears a blessing
Some gift they have to give.
A pure balm to those distressing
That helps the wounded live.

A talent shared can be a prize
That makes the dreary smile.
A pearly that great value brings,
That lasts a precious while.

Cleave to the ones you love
Who’re sealed to you above

Nothing else can them replace.

As the pure fruit of life’s tree.
All the righteous will receive
True family if they believe.
