O Rejoice in The Lord

By Ron Hamilton
[Key: B]

Verse 1
God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servant and molding a man.
Give thanks to the Lord though your testing seems long;
In darkness He giveth a song.

Chorus
O rejoice in the Lord
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried and purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

Verse 2
I could not see through the shadows ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.

Chorus
O rejoice in the Lord
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried and purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

Verse 3
Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.

Chorus
O rejoice in the Lord
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried and purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

Days of Elijah

11058

Robin Mark
[Key: F]

Verse 1
These are the days of Elijah,
Declaring the word of the Lord:
And these are the days of Your servant Moses,
Righteousness being restored.
And though these are days of great trial,
Of famine and darkness and sword,
Still, we are the voice in the desert crying
‘Prepare ye the way of the Lord!’

Chorus
Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

Verse 2
These are the days of Ezekiel,
The dry bones becoming as flesh.
And these are the days of Your servant David,
Rebuilding a temple of praise.
These are the days of the harvest,
The fields are as white in Your world!
And we are the laborers in Your vineyard,
Declaring the word of the Lord!

Chorus
Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

Bridge
There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah!

**Key Change**

Chorus
Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

I Sought The Lord and Afterward I Knew

Jean Ingelow, 1878
[Key: E]

Verse 1
I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew
He moved my soul to seek Him, seeking me.
It was not I that found, O Savior true,
No, I was found of Thee.

Verse 2
Thou didst reach forth Thy hand and mine enfold,
I walked and sank not on the storm-vexed sea.
‘Twas not so much that I on Thee took hold
As Thou, dear Lord, on me.

Verse 3
I find, I walk, I love, but, oh, the whole
Of love is but my answer, Lord, to Thee!
For Thou wert long beforehand with my soul,
Always Thou lovedst me.

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Words: Charles Wesley, 1744 (Verses 1 & 4)
Mark Hunt, 1978 (Verses 2 & 3)
Music: “Hyfrydol” by R.H. Prichard
[Key: Db]

Verse 1
Come, Thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of ev’ry nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Verse 2
Joy to those who long to see Thee
Day-spring from on high, appear.
Come, Thou promised Rod of Jesse,
Of Thy birth, we long to hear!
O’er the hills the angels singing
News, glad tidings of a birth;
“Go to Him your praises bringing
Christ the Lord has come to earth!”

Verse 3
Come to earth to taste our sadness,
He whose glories knew no end.
By His life He brings us gladness,
Our redeemer, Shepherd, Friend.
Leaving riches without number,
Born within a cattle stall;
This the everlasting wonder,
Christ was born the Lord of all.

Verse 4
Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child, and yet a King,
Born to reign in us for ever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all-sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

O Come, O Come, Immanuel

Latin Hymn 1710
Translated by John Mason Neale 1851
[Key: Cm]

Verse 1
O come, O come, Immanuel,
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel.

Verse 2
O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud, and majesty, and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel.

Verse 3
O come, Thou Rod of Jesse free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny.
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them victory o’er the grave!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel.

Verse 4
O Come, thou Day-spring from on high,
And cheer us by Thy drawing nigh.
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And deaths dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel.

Verse 5
O come, O Key of David, come
And open wide our heavenly home.
Make safe the way that leads on high
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel.

I Hear the Words of Love

Piano Only

With Vocals

Horatius Bonar
Music from Day’s Psalter
[Key: Eb]

Verse 1
I hear the words of love,
I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty Sacrifice,
And I have peace with God.

Verse 2
’Tis everlasting peace!
Sure as Jehovah’s Name;
’Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
Forevermore the same.

Verse 3
The clouds may go and come,
And storms may sweep my sky—
This blood-sealed friendship changes not;
The Cross is ever nigh.

Verse 4
My love is oft times low,
My joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him remains the same,
No change Jehovah knows.

Verse 5
I change, He changes not,
The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting place,
His truth, not mine, the tie.
