God Himself 03:51
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."

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

Keep Us Safe 04:11
The day is past and gone, the evening shades appear Oh 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 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 Till morning light appears And when our days are past and we from time remove Oh 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 Lord, keep us safe this night, secure from all our fears Beneath the wings of your love till morning light appears Till morning light appears

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
5.
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 unto Jesus for refuge 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
6.
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
7.
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

Here Is Love 03:47
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
9.
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 has 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 O 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
10.
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
