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]

Give Me One Pure and Holy Passion

Mark Altrogge, 1988
[Key: A]

Verse 1
Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life

To know and follow hard after You.
To know and follow hard after You
To grow as Your disciple in Your truth

This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you my Lord
Oh lead me on, I will run after You
Oh lead me on, I will run after You.

Verse 2
Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life

To know and follow hard after You.
To know and follow hard after You
To grow as Your disciple in Your truth

This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you my Lord
Oh lead me on, I will run after You
Oh lead me on, I will run after You.

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 My Soul Thy Suit Prepare

Words: John Newton, 1779
Music: “Hendon” by Cesar Malan 1827
[Key: Db]

Verse 1
Come, my soul, thy suit prepare:
Jesus loves to answer prayer;
He Himself has bid thee pray,
Therefore will not say thee nay;
Therefore will not say thee nay.

Verse 2
Thou art coming to a King,
Large petitions with thee bring;
For His grace and power are such,
None can ever ask too much;
None can ever ask too much.

Verse 3
With my burden I begin:
Lord, remove this load of sin;
Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt,
Set my conscience free from guilt;
Set my conscience free from guilt.

Verse 4
Lord, I come to Thee for rest,
Take possession of my breast;
There Thy blood bought right maintain,
And without a rival reign;
And without a rival reign.

Verse 5
While I am a pilgrim here,
Let Thy love my spirit cheer;
As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend,
Lead me to my journey’s end;
Lead me to my journey’s end.

Verse 6
Show me what I have to do,
Every hour my strength renew:
Let me live a life of faith,
Let me die Thy people’s death;
Let me die Thy people’s death.

Never Cease to Praise

Jeff Bourque
[Key: D]

Verse 1
May we run this race, may we keep the faith,
May our eyes be fixed on Jesus
That we’ll not lose heart in our struggle with sin
And through suffering know endurance.

Verse 2
May we arm ourselves with the mind of Christ,
To rejoice in trials and be not surprised.
May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise!

Verse 3
May our company be the saints You’ve called
May we all stand firm in One Spirit,
That the gospel’s truth may resound on earth
That all living things may hear it

Verse 4
May the fruits of faith mark the path we trod
Through the life of Christ to the glory of God.
May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise!

Verse 5
May the words we share be Your grace and peace
May our tongues speak Your proclamations,
That the many parts of the Body of Christ
Be affirmed in their right relation.

Verse 6
As we long and wait for our Groom to come
May we learn to love and spur each other on.
May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise!

Verse 7
When that day arrives, and the race is won,
When our griefs give way to deliverance.
We will fully know as we’re fully known,
All our groans will end as new songs begin.

Verse 8
And a multitude from every tribe and tongue,
Wearing robes of white
Will stand before Your throne
And our hearts will be so consumed by You
That we’ll never cease to praise!
May our hearts be so consumed by You
That we never cease to praise!

Jesus I My Cross Have Taken

Words: Henry Lyte
Music: Bill Moore
[Key: C]

Verse 1
Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow Thee.
Destitute, despised, forsaken,
Thou from hence my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,
All I’ve sought or hoped or known.
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.

Verse 2
Let the world despise and leave me,
They have left my Savior, too.
Human hearts and looks deceive me;
Thou art not, like them, untrue.
O while Thou dost smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might,
Foes may hate and friends disown me,
Show Thy face and all is bright.

Verse 3
Man may trouble and distress me,
’Twill but drive me to Thy breast.
Life with trials hard may press me;
Heav’n will bring me sweeter rest.
Oh, ’tis not in grief to harm me
While Thy love is left to me;
Oh, ’twere not in joy to charm me,
Were that joy unmixed with Thee.

Verse 4
Go, then, earthly fame and treasure,
Come disaster, scorn and pain
In Thy service, pain is pleasure,
With Thy favor, loss is gain
I have called Thee Abba Father,
I have stayed my heart on Thee
Storms may howl, and clouds may gather;
All must work for good to me.

Verse 5
Soul, then know thy full salvation
Rise o’er sin and fear and care
Joy to find in every station,
Something still to do or bear.
Think what Spirit dwells within thee,
Think what Father’s smiles are thine,
Think that Jesus died to win thee,
Child of heaven, canst thou repine.

Verse 6
Haste thee on from grace to glory,
Armed by faith, and winged by prayer.
Heaven’s eternal days before thee,
God’s own hand shall guide us there.
Soon shall close thy earthly mission,
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days,
Hope shall change to glad fruition,
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.

Jesus Draw Me Ever Nearer

Keith Getty and Margaret Becker
[Key: D]

Verse 1
Jesus, draw me ever nearer
As I labor through the storm
You have called me to this passage
And I’ll follow though I’m worn

Chorus
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake.

Verse 2
Jesus, guide me through the tempest
Keep my spirit stayed and sure.
When the midnight meets the morning,
Let me love You even more.

Chorus
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake.

Verse 3
May the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go
And at the end of this long passage,
Let me leave them at Your Throne.

Chorus
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake

Higher Ground

Johnson Oatman Jr., 1898
[Key: Eb]

Verse 1

I’m pressing on the upward way,

New heights I’m gaining every day;

Still praying as I’m upward bound,

“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Verse 2

Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s table land,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Verse 3

My heart has no desire to stay

Where doubts arise and fears dismay;

Though some may dwell where those abound,

My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

Verse 4

Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s table land,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Verse 5

I want to live above the world,

Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;

For faith has caught the joyful sound,

The song of saints on higher ground.

Verse 6

Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s table land,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Verse 7

I want to scale the utmost height

And catch a gleam of glory bright;

But still I’ll pray till Heav’n I’ve found,

“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Verse 8

Lord, lead me up the mountain side,

I dare not climb without my Guide;

And, heaven gained, I’ll gaze around,

With a grateful heart from higher ground.

Verse 9

Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s table land,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.


You just sang about pressing on to higher ground, but how do you do that? Check out this article by Conrad Murrell, “How To Do It.

He Will Hold Me Fast

Words v 1-2: Ada Habershon (1861-1918);
Alt. Words v.1-2, Words v.3, and Music: Matt Merker (2013)
[Key: G]

Verse 1
When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

Chorus
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

Verse 2
Those He saves are His delight,
Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in His holy sight,
He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost;
His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost,
He will hold me fast.

Chorus
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

Verse 3
For my life He bled and died,
Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied;
He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life,
He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight
When He comes at last!

Chorus
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.
