Week of February 18th, 2018
Title: Cleansed By God
Meter: 9 9 9 9
Topic: Baptism

1.
As God once cleansed the Earth with water,
So He must cleanse each son and daughter
Immersing within a living flood,
That cleans by virtue of Jesus’ blood.

2.
As God will cleanse the earth by fire,
So He must cleanse our hearts of desire,
For the world’s wickedness and ways,
With the spirit’s fervent, holy blaze.

3.
As Jesus once suffered in our stead,
We think on Him with water and bread.
Renewing the chance to become clean,
As we ingest what all these things mean.

Hymn Text: Seek Learning by Study But Also By Faith

Title: Seek Learning by Study But Also By Faith
Meter: 11 8 11 8
Scripture: Doctrine and Covenants 88: 118

1.
Seek learning by study but also by faith,
Seek diligently wisdom to find.
And seek out the words that the prophets have said
Then let their words rest in your mind.

2.
Then teach one another the true words of life
Teach others from what you have read.
The best of our books can great wisdom impart
From authors who by God were led.

3.
As all have not faith it is needful to find
Our way in a world that is dark.
The wisdom of God makes the worlds wisdom small
The contrast is certain and stark.

Sent to teach and tend.
Such gifts are without equal:
Our family without end.

According to the flesh we’re free

But still Christ’s love remains the same.

Christ mediates for liberty
We have the choice in every hour
To choose the good or evil pow’r.

Hymn Text: No Eye Has Ever Seen

Title: No Eye Has Ever Seen
Meter: 6 6 6 6 D
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2: 5, 9-11

1.
No eye has ever seen
Nor ear has heard the sound
No sense is yet so keen
That God’s gifts can be found

For what He has prepared
No mind can comprehend
Nothing can be prepared
To what our God can send.

2.
The riches of God’s love
The Spirit only knows
The deep things from above
He to our hearts can show.

When we God’s love return
A glimpse we can receive
Of splendors we can learn
More than we can conceive.

But I have chosen you.

Now ye I have ordained
That ye may bring forth fruit.
That your fruit should remain
Because of your deep roots.

I have ever thee sustained
My aid thy needs will suit.
Now ye I have ordained
That ye may bring forth fruit.

Whatever ye shall ask
My Father then will give.
He gave to thee thy task
And pow’r that ye might live.

In blessings ye may bask
Thy sins I shall forgive.
Whatever ye shall ask
My Father then will give.

Title: In Israel the Lord a Watchman Has Set
Meter: 10 10 10 10
Scripture: Ezekiel 3:16-17

1.
In Israel the Lord a watchman has set
He tells us God’s words, lest we Him forget
He sees much farther, the heavenly prize
Seeing so much more than our mortal eyes.

2.
The watchman warns us of the danger far
Through mists of darkness, he shines like a star
He bids us prepare for trouble he sees
By work in God’s vineyard, and on our knees.

3.
The watchman calls unto each of us now
To keep our gaze forward, hand on the plow.
The watchman is proof God loves us below
That He wants all of us His face to know.
