The King of Love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never.

And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

But yet in love He sought me;
And on His shoulder gently laid,

With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.

On the mountain high or in the valley low,
The King of Love my Shepherd is!

On the mountain high or in the valley low,
The King of Love my Shepherd is!
The King of Love my Shepherd is!

So through all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise,
Within Thy house forever.
Within Thy house forever.

Christ Our Hope in Life and Death

Keith Getty, Matt Boswell, Jordan Kauflin, Matt Merker & Matt Papa

Verse 1
What is our hope in life and death?
Christ alone, Christ alone.
What is our only confidence?
That our souls to Him belong.

Who holds our days within His hand?
What comes, apart from His command?
And what will keep us to the end?
The love of Christ, in which we stand.

Chorus
O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

Verse 2
What truth can calm the troubled soul?
God is good, God is good.
Where is His grace and goodness known?
In our great Redeemer’s blood.

Who holds our faith when fears arise?
Who stands above the stormy trial?
Who sends the waves that bring us nigh
Unto the shore, the rock of Christ?

Chorus
O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

Verse 3
Unto the grave, what shall we sing?
“Christ, He lives; Christ, He lives!”
And what reward will heaven bring?
Everlasting life with Him.

There we will rise to meet the Lord,
Then sin and death will be destroyed,
And we will feast in endless joy,
When Christ is ours forevermore.

Chorus
O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

When I Survey Life’s Varied Scene

Words: Anne Steele, 1760
Music & last four lines: Ross Hauck 2020

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.”

Lord, From Sorrows Deep I call

Matt Papa and Matt Boswell
Inspired by Psalm 42

Verse 1
Lord, from sorrows deep I call,
When my hope is shaken.
Torn and ruined from the fall,
Hear my desperation!
For so long I’ve pled and prayed!
God, come to my rescue!
Even so the thorn remains.
Still my heart will praise You.

Verse 2
Storms within my troubled soul,
Questions without answers.
On my faith these billows roll,
God, be now my shelter.
Why are you cast down my soul?
Hope in Him who saves you!
When the fires have all grown cold,
Cause this heart to praise You!

Chorus
O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

Verse 3
Should my life be torn from me,
Every worldly pleasure.
When all I possess is grief,
God, be then my treasure.
Be my vision in the night!
Be my hope and refuge.
Till my faith is turned to sight,
Lord, my heart will praise You!

Chorus
O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

Oh Rejoice In The Lord

By Ron Hamilton

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.

I Hear The Words Of Love

Piano Only

With Vocals

Horatius Bonar
Music from Day’s Psalter

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.

Every Promise of Your Word

Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Verse 1
From the breaking of the dawn
To the setting of the sun,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
Words of power, strong to save,
That will never pass away,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
For Your covenant is sure,
And on this I am secure
I can stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 2
When I stumble and I sin,
Condemnation pressing in,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
You are faithful to forgive
That in freedom I might live,
So I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Guilt to innocence restored,
You remember sins no more
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 3
When I’m faced with anguished choice,
I will listen for Your voice,
And I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.
Through this dark and troubled land
You will guide me with Your hand
As I stand on every promise of Your Word.
And You’ve promised to complete
Every work begun in me
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 4
Hope that lifts me from despair,
Love that casts out every fear,
As I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Not forsaken, not alone,
For the Comforter has come,
And I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Grace sufficient, grace for me,
Grace for all who will believe
We will stand on every promise of Your Word.
