Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor

Matt Boswell and Matt Papa
Key: A

Verse 1
Christ the sure and steady Anchor
In the fury of the storm!
When the winds of doubt blow through me,
And my sails have all been torn,
In the suffering, in the sorrow,
When my sinking hopes are few,
I will hold fast to the Anchor
It shall never be removed.

Verse 2
Christ the sure and steady Anchor
While the tempest rages on.
When temptation claims the battle,
And it seems the night has won,
Deeper still then goes the Anchor!
Though I justly stand accused,
I will hold fast to the Anchor
It shall never be removed.

Verse 3
Christ the sure and steady Anchor
Through the floods of unbelief.
Hopeless, somehow, oh my soul now,
Lift your eyes to calvary!
This my ballast of assurance
See His love forever proved!
I will hold fast to the Anchor
It shall never be removed.

Verse 4
Christ the sure and steady Anchor
As we face the wave of death.
When these trials give way to glory,
And we draw our final breath,
We will cross that great horizon,
Clouds behind and life secure,
And the calm will be the better,
For the storms that we endure.

Ending
Christ the Sure of our Salvation,
Ever faithful, ever true!
We will hold fast to the Anchor,
It shall never be removed.

I Greet Thee, Who My Sure Redeemer Art

John Calvin, Strasbourg Psalter (1545)
Translated by Elizabeth Lee Smith (1868)

Verse 1
I greet Thee, who my sure Redeemer art,
My only Trust and Savior of my heart,
Who pain didst undergo for my poor sake;
I pray Thee, from our hearts all cares to take.

Verse 2
Thou art the King of mercy and of grace,
Reigning omnipotent in every place;
So come, O King, and our whole being sway;
Shine on us with the light of Thy pure day.

Verse 3
Thou art the life by which alone we live
And all our substance and our strength receive;
Sustain us by Thy faith and by Thy pow’r,
And give us strength in ev’ry trying hour.

Verse 4
Our hope is in no other save in Thee;
Our faith is built upon Thy promise free;
Lord, give us peace and make us calm and sure,
That in Thy strength we evermore endure.

Hymn of Heaven

Phil Wickham

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
And death shall be no more,
Neither shall there be mourning,
Nor crying, nor pain anymore,
For the former things have passed away.”

Who was and is and is to come!”
Revelation 21:3-4, 4:8

Verse 1
How I long to breathe the air of Heaven,
Where pain is gone and mercy fills the streets,
To look upon the One who bled to save me,
And walk with You for all eternity.

Chorus
There will be a day
When all will bow before You!
There will be a day
When death will be no more!
Standing face to face,
With You, who died and rose again.
Holy, holy are You Lord!

Verse 2
And every prayer we prayed in desperation,
The songs of faith,
We sang through doubt and fear
In the end, we’ll see that it was worth it,
When You return to wipe away our tears!

When all will bow before You!
There will be a day
When death will be no more!
Standing face to face,
With You, who died and rose again.
Holy, holy are You Lord!

And on that day, we join the resurrection
And stand beside the heroes of the faith.
With one voice, a thousand generations
Sing, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain!”

And stand beside the heroes of the faith.
With one voice, a thousand generations
Sing, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain!”

Forever You shall reign!

We shout the Hymn of Heaven!
With angels and the Saints,
We raise a mighty roar!

Praise the Savior, You Who Know Him

Words: Thomas Kelly 1806
Music: Traditional German Melody
[Key: A]

Verse 1
Praise the Savior, you who know Him!
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
All we are and have.

Verse 2
Jesus is the name that charms us;
He for conflict fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
While we trust in Him.

Verse 3
Trust in Him, you saints, forever;
He is faithful, changing never;
Neither force nor guile can sever
Those He loves from Him.

Verse 4
Keep us, Lord, O keep us cleaving
To Thyself and still believing,
Till the hour of our receiving
Promised joys with Thee.

Verse 5
Then we shall be where we would be,
Then we shall be what we should be;
Things that are not now, nor could be,
Soon shall be our own.

Meekness and Majesty

Graham Kendrick
[Key: A]

Verse 1
Meekness and majesty, manhood and deity
In perfect harmony, the Man who is God.
Lord of eternity dwells in humanity,
Kneels in humility and washes our feet.

Verse 2
Father’s pure radiance, perfect in innocence
Yet learns obedience to death on a cross.
Suffering to give us life,
Conquering through sacrifice,
And as they crucify prays Father forgive!

Chorus
O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Verse 3
Wisdom unsearchable, God the invisible,
Love indestructible in frailty appears.
Lord of infinity stooping so tenderly,
Lifts our humanity to the heights of His throne.

Chorus
O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

When I Survey Life’s Varied Scene

Words: Anne Steele, 1760
Music & last four lines: Ross Hauck 2020
[Key: G#]

Verse 1
When I survey life’s varied scene,
Amid the darkest hours,
Sweet rays of comfort shine between,
And thorns are mix’d with flowers.
Lord, teach me to adore Thy hand,
From whence my comforts flow;
And let me in this desert land
A glimpse of Canaan know.

Verse 2
Is health and ease my happy share?
O may I bless my God;
Thy kindness let my songs declare,
And spread Thy praise abroad.
While such delightful gifts as these,
Are kindly dealt to me,
Be all my hours of health and ease
Devoted, Lord, to Thee.

Verse 3
When present suff’rings pain my heart,
Or future terrors rise,
And light and hope almost depart
From these dejected eyes,
Thy pow’rful word supports my hope,
Sweet cordial of the mind!
And bears my fainting spirit up,
And bids me wait resign’d.

Verse 4
And oh, whate’er of earthly bliss
Thy sov’reign hand denies,
Accepted at Thy throne of grace,
Let this petition rise:
“Give me a calm, a thankful heart,
From ev’ry murmur free;
The blessings of Thy grace impart,
And let me live to Thee.”

Verse 5
O May the hope that Thou art mine,
My path of life attend;
Thy presence through my journey shine,
And bless its happy end.
‘Til then, whate’er my days shall bring
On Thee my trust is stayed.
Thy Love shall tune my heart to sing
And draw eternal praise.

The Story Behind This Hymn:

“Anne Steele was born at Broughton, Hampshire in 1717. Her father was a timber merchant, and at the same time officiated as the lay pastor of the Baptist Society at Broughton. Her mother died when she was 3. At the age of 19 she became an invalid after injuring her hip.

At the age of 21 she was engaged to be married, but her fiancé drowned the day of the wedding. This hymn was written after the death of her beloved.

For most of her life, she exhibited symptoms of malaria, including persistent pain, fever, headaches, and stomach aches.

Caleb Evans, in his preface to Steele’s posthumous Miscellaneous Pieces in Verse and Prose (1780), noted that she had been bed ridden for “some years” before her death:

“When the interesting hour came, she welcomed its arrival, and though her feeble body was excruciated with pain, her mind was perfectly serene. . . . She took the most affectionate leave of her weeping friends around her, and at length, the happy moment of her dismission arising, she closed her eyes, and with these animating words on her dying lips, “I know that my Redeemer liveth,” gently fell asleep in Jesus.”
