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. Here I raise my Ebenezer; Hither by Thy help I'm 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. O to grace how great a debtor Daily I'm constrained to be! Let that grace now 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.

I do not ask to see the way My feet will have to tread; But only that my soul may feed Upon the living Bread. 'Tis better far that I should walk By faith close to His side; I may not know the way I go, but oh, I know my Guide. Chorus: His love can never fail, His love can never fail, My soul is satisfied to know His love can never fail. My soul is satisfied to know His love can never fail. And if my feet would go astray, They cannot, for I know That Jesus guides my falt'ring steps, As joyfully I go. And though I may not see His face, My faith is strong and clear, That in each hour of sore distress My Savior will be near. I will not fear, though darkness come Abroad o'er all the land, If I may only feel the touch Of His own loving hand. And though I tremble when I think How weak I am, and frail, My soul is satisfied to know His love can never fail.

Let the world their virtue boast and works of righteousness I a wretch undone and lost am freely saved by grace Take me Savior as I am Let me lose my sins in Thee Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb Thy blood was shed for me Thy blood was shed for me Full of truth and grace Thou art and here is all my hope False and foul as hell my heart to Thee I offer up Thou wast given to redeem My soul from iniquity Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb Thy blood was shed for me Thy blood was shed for me Nothing have I Lord to pay nor can Thy grace procure Empty, send me not away for Thou knowest I am poor Dust and ashes is my name My all is sin and misery Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb Thy blood was shed for me Thy blood was shed for me

How Helpless 03:50
How helpless guilty nature lies, Unconscious of its load The heart, unchanged, can never rise To happiness and God. Can nothing less than power divine, The stubborn will subdue? 'Tis Thine, eternal Spirit, Thine, To form the heart anew. 'Tis Thine, the passions to recall, And upwards bid them rise; And make the scales of error fall, From reason's darkened eyes. To chase the shades of death away And bid the sinner live Heaven’s beam, a vital ray ‘Tis Thine alone to give Oh change these wretched hearts of ours, And give them life divine; Then shall our passions and our powers, Almighty Lord, be Thine. Oh change these wretched hearts of ours, And give them life divine; Then shall our passions and our powers, Almighty Lord, be Thine. Almighty Lord, be Thine Almighty Lord, be Thine How helpless guilty nature lies, Unconscious of its load

Jesus, I am resting, resting, In the joy of what Thou art; I am finding out the greatness Of Thy loving heart. Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee, And Thy beauty fills my soul, For by Thy transforming power, Thou hast made me whole. Chorus: Jesus, I am resting, resting, In the joy of what Thou art; I am finding out the greatness Of Thy loving heart. O, how great Thy loving kindness, Vaster, broader than the sea! O, how marvelous Thy goodness, Lavished all on me! Yes, I rest in Thee, Beloved, Know what wealth of grace is Thine, Know Thy certainty of promise, And have made it mine. Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus, I behold Thee as Thou art, And Thy love, so pure, so changeless, Satisfies my heart; Satisfies its deepest longings, Meets, supplies its every need, Compasseth me round with blessings: Thine is love indeed! Ever lift Thy face upon me As I work and wait for Thee; Resting ’neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus, Earth’s dark shadows flee. Brightness of my Father’s glory, Sunshine of my Father’s face, Keep me ever trusting, resting, Fill me with Thy grace.

All I Owe 03:52
When this passing world is done, When has sunk yon glaring sun, When we stand with Christ in glory, Looking o'er life's finished story, Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe. Chorus: All I owe you paid for me From all I owe I’ve been set free And all I owe proves your great mercy to me When I stand before your throne, Dressed in beauty not my own, When I see you as you are Love you with unsinning heart, Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe. Bridge: Chosen not for good in me, Wakened up from wrath to flee, Hidden in the Saviour's side, By the Spirit sanctified, Teach me, Lord, on earth to show, By my love, how much I owe.

Though troubles assail and dangers affright, Though friends should all fail and foes all unite; Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, The scripture assures us, the Lord will provide The birds without barn or storehouse are fed, From them let us learn to trust for our bread: His saints, what is fitting, shall ne'er be denied, So long as it's written, the Lord will provide We may, like the ships, by tempest be tossed On perilous deeps, but cannot be lost. Though Satan enrages the wind and the tide, The promise engages, the Lord will provide. His call we obey, like Abram of old, Not knowing our way, but faith makes us bold; For though we are strangers we have a good Guide, And trust in all dangers, the Lord will provide When Satan appears to stop up our path, And fill us with fears, we triumph by faith; He cannot take from us, though oft he has tried, This heart-cheering promise, the Lord will provide He tells us we're weak, our hope is in vain, The good that we seek we ne'er shall obtain, But when such suggestions our spirits have plied, This answers all questions, the Lord will provide No strength of our own, or goodness we claim, Yet since we have known the Savior's great name; In this our strong tower for safety we hide, The Lord is our power, the Lord will provide When life sinks apace and death is in view, This word of his grace shall comfort us through: No fearing or doubting with Christ on our side, We hope to die shouting "the Lord will provide"

None Among 03:18
When by faith my Lord I see Bleeding on a cross fro me Quick my idols all depart Jesus gets and fills my heart Chorus: None among the sons of men None among the heavenly train Can with Jesus then compare None so sweet, none so fair Soon my tongue would fain express All His love and loveliness But I lisp and falter forth Broken words, not half his worth Oh I try and try again Still my efforts are in vain And I know despite my pride That his truth will still remain Idols crowd my heart and mind And demand I shed my blood But the Lord, the risen Christ Has secured me in the flood Has secured me in the flood

My Lord, I did not choose You, For that could never be; My heart would still refuse You, Had You not chosen me. You took the sin that stained me, You cleansed me, made me new; Of old You have ordained me, That I should live in You. Chorus: My Lord, I did not choose You, For that could never be; My heart would still refuse You, Had You not chosen me. Unless Your grace had called me And taught my opening mind, The world would have enthralled me, To heavenly glories blind. My heart knows none above You; For Your rich grace I thirst; I know that if I love You, You must have loved me first.
10.
What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus; What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Chorus: Oh! Precious is the flow That makes me white as snow; No other fount I know, Nothing but the blood of Jesus. For my pardon, this I see, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; For my cleansing, this my plea, Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Nothing can for sin atone, Nothing but the blood of Jesus Naught of good that I have done, Nothing but the blood of Jesus. This is all my hope and peace, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; This is all my righteousness, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
