My Soul Finds Rest

My soul finds rest in God alone,
My rock and my salvation.
A fortress strong against my foes,
And I will not be shaken.
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse,
And lies like arrows piece me,
I'll fix my heart on righteousness,
I'll look to him who hears me.


O, praise him, hallelujah,
My delight and my reward,
Everlasting, never failing,
My redeemer and my God.

Find rest, my soul, in God alone
Amid the world's temptation;
When evil seeks to take a hold
I'll cling to my salvation.
Though riches come and riches go,
Don't set your heart upon them;
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven.

I'll set my gaze on God alone
And trust in him completely;
With ev'ry day pour out my soul,
And he will prove his mercy.
Though life is but a fleeting breath,
A sigh too brief to measure,
My King has crushed the curse of death,
And I am his forever.


Ye Servants of God

Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad his wonderful name;
The name all victorious of Jesus extol;
His kingdom is glorious and rules over all.

God ruleth on high, almighty to save;
And still he is nigh, his presence we have;
The great congregation his triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation to Jesus our king.

Salvation to God who sits on the throne,
Let all cry aloud and honour the son:
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim;
Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb.

Then let us adore and give him his right;
All glory and power, all wisdom and might;
All honour and blessing with angels above,
And thanks never ceasing, and infinite love.


The Church's One Foundation

The church's one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord;
She is his new creation by Spirit and the Word;
From heav'n he came and sought her to be his holy bride;
With his own blood he bought her and for her life he died.

Elect from ev'ry nation, yet one o'er all the earth;
Her charter of salvation: one Lord, one faith, one birth;
One holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food,
And to one hope she presses, with ev'ry grace endued.

'Mid toil and tribulation, and tumult of her war,
She waits the consummation of peace for evermore;
Till with the vision glorious her longing eyes are blest,
And the great Church victorious shall be the Church at rest.

Yet she on earth hath union with God the three in one,
And mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won:
O happy ones and holy!Lord, give us grace that we,
Like them, the meek and lowly, on high may dwell with thee.


How Sweet and Aweful is the Place

How sweet and aweful is the place
With Christ within the doors,
While everlasting love displays
The choicest of her stores.

While all our hearts and all our songs
Join to admire the feast,
Each of us cries, with thankful tongues,
"Lord, why was I a guest?"

"Why was I made to hear Thy voice
And enter while there's room
When thousands make a wretched choice,
And rather starve than come?"

'Twas the same love that spread the feast
That sweetly drew us in;
Else we had still refused to taste,
And perished in our sin.

Pity the nations, O Lord our God;
Constrain the earth to come,
Send Thy victorious Word abroad,
And bring the strangers home.

We long to see Thy churches full,
That all the chosen race
May, with one voice, and heart and soul,
Sing Thy redeeming grace.



The Communion Hymn

Behold the Lamb of God who bears our sins away, slain for us
And we remember,
The promise made that all who come in faith
Find forgiveness at the cross.
So we share in this bread if life,
And we drink of his sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of peace
Around the table of the king.

The body of our Saviour Jesus Christ, torn for you,
Eat and remember, 
The wounds that heal, 
The death that brings us life
Paid the price to make us one.
So we share in this bread of life,
And we drink of his sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of peace
Around the table of the king.

The blood that cleanses every stain of sin, shed for you,
Drink and remember, 
He drained death's cup that all may enter in
To receive the life of God.
So we share in this bread of life,
And we drink of his sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of grace
Around the table of the king.

And so with thankfulness and faith we rise to respond
And to remember, 
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ
As his body here on earth.
As we share in his suffering
We proclaim that Christ will come again!
And we'll join in the feast of heav'n
Around the table of the king.
