Title: Christ Took It All

Meter: 8 8 8 8

Topic: atonement, forgiveness

1.

Christ took our wounds, He took our pain

He bore our stripes, He bled like rain,

He sunk below, then rose above

He drained the cup, He shared His love.

2.

Christ laid His life down on His own

He paid all debts, He did atone

He bore all sin, He bore all grief

He kindled grace, He brought relief.

3.

Christ then took up His life anew

He grants this gift, He will renew

He will refresh, He is our friend

He will faint, He will not end.

Hymn Text: The Savior of the One

Date: April 15th, 2017

Title: The Savior of the One

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic:

1.

The Savior of the World is

The Savior of the one

The peoples of the world are His

He shepherds as God’s Son.

 

He weighs the raging nations all

But counts the hidden tear

And marks the wounded sparrow’s fall

And calms a child’s fear.

2.

The Savior of the World came

To be the hope of men

It matters not how deep our shame

Or where we live or when.

 

He offers us the pure relief

That comes from vanished sin

He only asks us for belief

That changes from within.

3.

The Savior of the World speaks

To the hearts of His sheep

When each the Holy Spirit seeks,

Commits, His word to keep.

 

He knows the sorrows of each one

And knows how best to care.

He takes them home when they are done

He leads them gently there.

Title: Let Christ the Lord Alone Be Judge

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: judgment, forgiveness

 

Let Christ the Lord alone be judge

To weigh the souls of all.

And let us not His role begrudge

Or forgiveness forestall.

 

For He will mete again to us

The measure that we gave.

If we forgive another thus

His hand will shortly save.

Hymn Text: Who Can Boast in Our God to Excess?

Date: April 13th, 2017

Title: Who Can Boast in Our God to Excess?

Meter: 10 10 10 10 D

Topic: praise, support, supplication

1.

For who can boast in our God to excess?

Of His goodness, longsuff’ring and power?

He grants the weakest of us with success,

And He causes the wasteland to flower.

 

If this is boasting, then so will I boast

Of my light, my life, my redemption from sin,

Of all that I feel, I can’t say the most

But that which I feel, I can’t keep within.

2.

Even the lifeless at His word are raised.

Even the mountains flow down at his call.

Even the tongues of small children sing praise.

Even great legions of enemies fall.

 

If this is boasting, then so will I boast

Of my light, my life, my redemption from sin,

Of all that I feel, I can’t say the most

But that which I feel, I can’t keep within.

3.

Even the heathen to Him bow the knee

Even the faithless draw breath by His might.

Even the mightiest captives are free.

Even the bottomless pit fills with light.

 

If this is boasting, then so will I boast

Of my light, my life, my redemption from sin,

Of all that I feel, I can’t say the most

But that which I feel, I can’t keep within.

Title: Turn to the Light

Meter: 10 10 10 10 10 10

Topic: God’s light, the Holy Spirit, missionary work

 

Each living thing turns unto the light

Even when it seems, we stand in the night

The church, the temple, the walls of our homes

Each holds the light of the world like domes

Containing the light that can share and grow

That those in the dark its brilliance may know.

Hymn Text: The Plan for Everyone

Date: April 11th, 2017

Title: The Plan for Everyone

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: God’s plan, the adversary, overcoming opposition

1.
God has a plan for everyone
The adversary too.
So then the path on which we run
Depends on what we do.

God’s path’s a straight and narrow climb
Though Satan’s path is broad
Gods leads into a realm sublime
But Satan’s is a fraud.

2.
God has a plan we can embrace
Or choose to leave behind.
And if we simply run the race
His great reward we’ll find.

God’s path’s a straight and narrow climb
Though Satan’s path is broad
Gods leads into a realm sublime
But Satan’s is a fraud.

3.
God has a plan far greater than
The best that we can lay
He sees much more than any can
And so, knows the best way.

God’s path’s a straight and narrow climb
Though Satan’s path is broad
Gods leads into a realm sublime
But Satan’s is a fraud.
