Track Name: God Himself
In the day when silent sorrow
Seems to shake me to the core
Then I hear the heavenly comfort,
"You will weep no more."

God Himself will dry your tears
God Himself will soothe your fears

In the day when earthly weakness
Weighs your weary spirit down
All around you seems a burden
All above you seems a frown

God Himself will dry your tears
God Himself will soothe your fears

In the day when sin oppresses
And the battle rages strong
When the victory seems doubtful
Or triumphant seems the wrong

God Himself will dry your tears
God Himself will soothe your fears
God Himself will dry your tears
God Himself will soothe your fears

Oh I hear the heavenly comfort,
"You will weep no more."
Track Name: Thy Love To Me
Thy love to me, O Christ, Thy love to me
Not mine to Thee, I plead, not mine to Thee
This is my comfort strong, this is my only song,
Thy love to me, Thy love to me

Let me more clearly trace Thy love to me
See in the Father's face His love to Thee
Know as He loves the Son, so dost Thou love Thine own
Help me to see Thy love to me

Thy record I believe, Thy word to me
Thy love I now receive, full, changeless, free
Love from the sinless Son, love to the sinful one
Thy love to me, Thy love to me

Immortal love of Thine, Thy sacrifice
Infinite need of mine only supplies
Streams of divinest power flow to me hour by hour
Help me to see Thy love to me

Immortal love of Thine, Thy sacrifice
Infinite need of mine only supplies
Streams of divinest power flow to me hour by hour
Help me to see Thy love to me
Help me to see Thy love to me

Thy love to me, O Christ, Thy love to me
Not mine to Thee, I plead, not mine to Thee
Track Name: Keep Us Safe
The day is past and gone, the evening shades appear
O may we all remember well, the night of death is near

We lay our garments by, upon our beds to rest
So death will soon disrobe us all of what we now possess

Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears
Beneath the wings of your love till morning light appears

And when we early rise and view the unwearied sun
May we set out to win the prize and after glory run

Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears
Beneath the wings of your love till morning light appears

And when our days are past and we from time remove
O may we in Your presence rest – the presence of your love

Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears
Beneath the wings of your love till morning light appears
Track Name: Be Still My Soul
Be still, my soul, the Lord is on your side
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain
Leave to your God to order and provide
In every change He faithful will remain
Be still, my soul, your best, your heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end

Be still, my soul, your God will undertake
To guide the future as He has the past
Your hope, your confidence, let nothing shake
All now mysterious shall be bright at last
Be still, my soul, the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below

Be still, my soul, when dearest friends depart
And all is darkened in the vale of tears
Then your will better know His love, His heart
Who comes to soothe your sorrows and your fears
Be still, my soul, your Jesus can repay
From His own fullness all He takes away

Be still, my soul, the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored
Be still, my soul, when change and tears are past
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last
Track Name: How Firm A Foundation
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 hath said
You who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

In every condition, in sickness and health
In poverty’s vale, or abounding in wealth
At home and abroad, on the land, on the sea
As thy days may demand, shall My strength ever be

Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand

When through the deep waters I call thee to go
The rivers of grief shall not thee overflow
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress

When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply
The flame shall not hurt thee, I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine

The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not, I will not desert to his foes
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to break
I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake
Track Name: I Need Thee Every Hour
I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord
No tender voice like Thine can peace afford
I need thee every hour, stay Thou nearby
Temptations lose their power when Thou art nigh.

I need Thee, O I need Thee, every hour I need Thee
O bless me now, my Savior, I come to Thee

I need Thee every hour, in joy or pain
Come quickly and abide, or life is vain
I need thee every hour, teach me Thy will
And Thy rich promises in me fulfill

I need thee every hour, Most Holy One
O make me Thine indeed, thou Blessed Son

Lord, I need You here this hour
‘Cause I don’t want to live like this
Every hope seems to end in heartache
And every prayer seems to turn to mist
I need to know this will get better
I need to see Your kingdom come
Where every broken heart is mended
Life’s restored, and death’s undone
Track Name: O Heart Bereaved And Lonely
O heart bereaved and lonely, whose brightest dreams have fled
Whose hopes like summer roses are withered, crushed, and dead
Though link by link be broken, and tears unseen may fall
Look up amid thy sorrow to Him who knows it all

O cling to thy Redeemer, thy Savior, Brother, Friend
Believe and trust His promise, to keep you till the end
O watch and wait with patience, and question all you will
His arms of love and mercy, are ’round about thee still

Look up, the clouds are breaking, the storm will soon be o'er
And thou shall reach the haven where sorrows are no more
Look up, be not discouraged, trust on, whate'er befall
Remember, O remember, thy Savior knows it all
Remember, O remember, thy Savior knows it all
Track Name: Here Is Love
Here is love, vast as the ocean, lovingkindness as the flood
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom, shed for us His precious blood
Who His love will not remember? Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten, throughout Heaven’s eternal days

On the mount of crucifixion, fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy flowed a vast and gracious tide
Grace and love, like mighty rivers, poured incessant from above
And Heaven’s peace and perfect justice kissed a guilty world in love

Let me all Thy love accepting, love Thee ever all my days
Let me seek Thy kingdom only and my life be to Thy praise
Thou alone shalt be my glory, nothing in the world I see
Thou hast cleansed and sanctified me, Thou Thyself hast set me free

In Thy truth Thou dost direct me by Thy Spirit through Thy Word
And Thy grace my need is meeting, as I trust in Thee, my Lord
Of Thy fullness Thou art pouring Thy great love and power on me
Without measure, full and boundless, drawing out my heart to Thee
Of Thy fullness Thou art pouring Thy great love and power on me
Without measure, full and boundless, drawing out my heart to Thee
Track Name: It Is Well With My Soul
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul

My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul
Track Name: Let Me Find Thee
Behold me here, in grief draw near
Pleading at Thy throne, oh King
To Thee each tear, each trembling fear
Jesus, Son of Man, I bring
Let me find Thee, let me find Thee
Let me find Thee, Lord of mercy, King of grace

Look down in love, and from above
With Thy Spirit satisfy
Thou hast sought me, Thou hast bought me
And thy purchase Lord am I
Let me find Thee, let me find Thee
Let me find Thee, here on earth and then on high

Hear the broken, scarcely spoken
Longings of my heart to Thee
All the crying, all the sighing
Of Thy child accepted be
Let me find Thee, let me find Thee
Let me find Thee, wounded healer, suffering Lord
