How Great Thou Art

21189

Carl Boberg, 1886
[Key: F]

Verse 1
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow’r thru-out the universe displayed!

Chorus
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

Verse 2
When thru the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze,

Chorus
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

Verse 3
And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in –
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin!

Chorus
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

Verse 4
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

Chorus
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

How Firm a Foundation

Kirkham 1787
[Key: E]

Verse 1
How firm a foundation ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He has said,
You who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?

Verse 2
In every condition, in sickness, in health,
In poverty’s vale, or abounding in wealth;
At home, or abroad, on the land, on the sea,
“As your days may demand, shall your strength ever be.”
[Deuteronomy 33:25]

Verse 3
“Fear not, I am with you; O be not dismayed;
For I am your God, and will still give you aid;
I’ll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand,
Upheld by My righteous omnipotent hand.”
[Isaiah 41:10]

Verse 4
“When through the deep waters I call you to go,
The rivers of woe shall not you overflow;
For I will be with you, your troubles to bless,
And sanctify to you your deepest distress.”
[Isaiah 43:2, 2 Corinthians 12:9]

Verse 5
“When through fiery trials your pathway shall lie,
My grace all-sufficient shall be your supply;
The flame shall not hurt you; I only design
Your dross to consume, and your gold to refine.”
[Isaiah 43:2, 2 Corinthians 12:9]

Verse 6
“Even down to old age, all My people shall prove
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And when graying hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be born.”
[Isaiah 46:4]

Verse 7
“The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”
[Hebrews 13:5]

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Robert Robinson
[Key: B]

Verse 1
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the Mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of God’s unchanging love.

Verse 2
Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Here by Thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His Precious Blood.

Verse 3
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

Verse 4
O that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy Lovely Face;
Robed then in blood wash-ed linen
How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace;
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Take my ransomed soul away;
Gather with Your arms and carry
Me to joys of endless day.

Come Thou Almighty King

Charles Wesley, 1757

Come, Thou Almighty King,
Help us Thy Name to sing,
Help us to praise!
Father all glorious,
O’er all victorious,
Come and reign over us,
Ancient of Days!

Scatter our enemies,
And make them fall;
Let Thine almighty aid
Our sure defense be made,
Souls on Thee be stayed;
Lord, hear our call.

Gird on Thy mighty sword,
Our prayer attend!
Come, and Thy people bless,
And give Thy Word success,
Spirit of holiness,
On us descend!

Thy sacred witness bear
In this glad hour.
Thou Who almighty art,
Now rule in every heart,
And ne’er from us depart,
Spirit of Power!

Eternal praises be,
Hence, evermore.

May we in glory see,
And to eternity love and adore!

Our Sovereign God

Tom Pennington
[Key: Ab]

Verse 1
Our Sovereign God by His own word
Sustains this world and reigns as Lord.
No angel, demon, sinful man can change
His course, restrain His hand.
O sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;
Your wisdom, goodness we adore!
We bow our hearts before Your throne;
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

Verse 2
When the fullness of the time had come,
God sent His own Beloved Son.
To keep God’s law, live in our place,
To bear our sin, guilt and disgrace.
Dead in our sin, estranged from God,
We fled as rebels from His love.
In sovereign grace He made us sons,
And saved us from the wrath to come,
And saved us from the wrath to come.

Verse 3
Before our birth He planned our days,
Laid out our course, ordained our ways.
The moments of our lives He weaves
So all the glory He receives.
To those He loved before all time,
To all He called, and grace renewed,
He cannot lie; His word is true,
He makes all things to work for good,
He makes all things to work for good.

Verse 4
He has written history’s final page
His Son’s return will end this age.
The Lamb will come in glorious might,
Take back His world and end it’s night.
How deep the wisdom of our God,
Unknown, unfathomed are His ways.
None counsels Him or knows His mind.
We bow before Him all our days,
We bow before Him all our days

O Sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;
Your wisdom, goodness we adore!
We bow our hearts before Your throne;
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

My Lord, I Did Not Choose You

Words: Josiah Conder
Additional words and music: Benjamin Brainard

Verse 1
My Lord, I did not choose You,
For that could never be;
My heart would still refuse You,
Had You not chosen me.
You took the sin that stained me,
You cleansed me, made me new;
Of old You have ordained me,
That I should live in You.

Chorus
For Christ my All, my Great Reward
Adorns my life forevermore!
Nothing can change now, who I am,
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man!
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man.

Verse 2
Unless Your grace had called me
And taught my op’ning mind,
The world would have enthralled me,
To heav’nly glories blind.
My heart knows none above You;
for Your rich grace I thirst;
I know that if I love You,
You must have loved me first.

Chorus
For Christ my All, my Great Reward
Adorns my life forevermore!
Nothing can change now, who I am,
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man!
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man.

Verse 3
Unless Your Spirit claimed me;
I’d still be bound in sin
Yet Christ alone has saved me
And now I’m found in Him.
And when I stand in glory
And faith gives way to sight
Your joy will crown the chosen
In everlasting light!

Chorus
For Christ my All, my Great Reward
Adorns my life forevermore!
Nothing can change now, who I am,
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man!
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man.

I Sing the Mighty Power of God

Words: Isaac Watts, 1719
Music: “Ellacombe” by Gesangbuch der Herzol 1784
[Key: C]

Verse 1
I sing the mighty power of God,
That made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom
That ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command,
And all the stars obey.

Verse 2
I sing the goodness of the Lord,
Who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word,
and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders
Are displayed where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze upon the sky.

Verse 3
There’s not a plant or flower below,
But makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
By order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows
Life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be,
Thou, God art present there.
