When Morning Gilds The Skies

Katholisches Gesangbuch, 1744

Verse 1
When morning gilds the skies
My heart awaking cries:
Let Jesus Christ be praised!
Alike at work and prayer,
To Jesus I repair:
Let Jesus Christ be praised!

Verse 2
Does sadness fill my mind?
A solace here I find,
Let Jesus Christ be praised!
Or fades my earthly bliss?
My comfort still is this,
Let Jesus Christ be praised!

Verse 3
To God, the Word, on high,
The host of angels cry,
Let Jesus Christ be praised!
Let mortals, too, upraise
Their voice in shouts of praise,
Let Jesus Christ be praised!

Verse 4
When sleep her rest denies,
My silent spirit sighs,
Let Jesus Christ be praised!
When evil thoughts molest,
With this I shield my breast,
Let Jesus Christ be praised!

Verse 5
In Heav’n’s eternal bliss
The loveliest strain is this,
Let Jesus Christ be praised!
The powers of darkness fear
When this sweet chant they hear:
Let Jesus Christ be praised!

Verse 6
Sing, suns and stars of space,
Sing, ye that see His face,
Sing, Jesus christ be praised!
God’s whole creation o’er,
For now and evermore
Shall Jesus Christ be praised!

By Faith

Keith and Kristyn Getty

Verse 1
By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation’s grand design,
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness,
Who walk by faith and not by sight.

Verse 2
By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts,
Of a holy city built by God’s own hand,
A place where peace and justice reign.

Chorus
We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

Verse 3
By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave.

By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth.

We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

Verse 5
By faith this mountain shall be moved
And the power of the gospel shall prevail,
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His Name.

Chorus
We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

Sweet Hour of Prayer

William W. Walford, 1842

Verse 1
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Verse 2
Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
The joys I feel, the bliss I share,
Of those whose anxious spirits burn
With strong desires for thy return!
With such I hasten to the place
Where God my Savior shows His face,
And gladly take my station there,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Verse 3
Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I’ll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us

Words by Dorothy A. Thrupp
Music by W. B. Bradbury

Verse 1
Savior, like a shepherd lead us;
Much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us,
For our use Thy folds prepare:
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are,
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

Verse 2
We are Thine, do Thou befriend us;
Be the Guardian of our way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us,
Seek us when we go astray.
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Hear us when we praise and pray,
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Hear us when we praise and pray.

Verse 3
Thou hast promised to receive us,
Poor and sinful though we be;
Thou hast mercy to relieve us,
Grace to cleanse, and make us free:
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Early let us turn to Thee
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Early let us turn to Thee.

Verse 4
Early let us seek Thy favor;
Early let us do Thy will;
Gracious Lord, our only Savior,
With Thyself our bosoms fill:
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still,
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still.

Take Time To Be Holy

William D. Longstaff, 1822-1894

Verse 1
Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word:
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak;
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.

Verse 2
Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret with Jesus alone:
By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.

Verse 3
Take time to be holy, let Him be thy guide,
And run not before Him whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow still follow thy Lord,
And looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.

Verse 4
Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul;
Each thought and each motive beneath His control;
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.

My Faith Looks Up To Thee

Ray Palmer, 1830

Verse 1
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior divine!
Now hear me while I pray, take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day be wholly Thine!

Verse 2
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart, my zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee,
Pure warm, and changeless be, a living fire!

Verse 3
While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread, be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day, wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray from Thee aside.

Verse 4
When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream over me roll;
Blest Savior, then in love, fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above, a ransomed soul!

For Our Children We Are Pleading

William Moore

Verse 1
Father, hear a father’s pleading,
Hear a mother’s earnest cry:
For our children interceding.
Gracious Lord, don’t let them die.
We seek neither wealth nor honor
For them in this world of strife;
But through Jesus Christ our Savior,
Give them, Lord, eternal life.

Verse 2
Lord, we tremble for our children,
For we know their woeful case:
Theirs are hearts full of corruption,
Part of Adam’s fallen race.
We are helpless, Lord, to save them,
We cannot their hearts renew:
If You will, Lord. You can save them,
Nothing is too hard for You.

Verse 3
Lord, we would not be demanding,
Or presume upon Your grace,
But our hearts for them are bleeding.
Our dear children need your grace.
We commit them to Your mercy,
And we leave them in Your care:
Since it would be for Your glory
God, we pray, our children spare!
