Hymn Lyrics

 Hymn:  Praise to the Lord, the Almighty          #321

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, who rules all creation;
My soul, praise God who alone is your health and salvation.
Come, all who hear, sisters and brothers draw near;
Joining in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord, who in all things so     wondrously reigning,
Hides you with sheltering wings, ever gently sustaining.
Have you not seen how your heart’s wishes have been
Granted through God’s kind ordaining?

Praise to the Lord, who will prosper your work, who defends you;
Surely God’s merciful goodness here daily attends you;
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
When in great love God befriends you.

Praise to the Lord, and with all that is in me adoring,
All who have life and breath, come with glad praises outpouring!
Let the amen sound from God’s people again
Now and forever adoring!

Hymn:  Take My life, and Let It Be      #461 (verses 1, 3, 5)

Take my life and let it be consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and my days;
let them flow in endless praise,
let them flow in endless praise.

Take my voice and let me sing always, only, for my King,
Take my lips and let them be;
filled with messages from Thee,
filled with messages from Thee.

Take my will and make it thine; it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart it is thine own;
it shall be thy royal throne,
it shall be thy royal throne.

Hymn:  Guide me, O Thou great Redeemer     #651 (verses 1-3)

Guide me, O Thou Great Redeemer,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with thy powerful hand:
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore;
Feed me now and evermore.

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow;
Let the fiery cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey though:
Strong Deliverer, strong deliverer,
Be Thou still my strength and shield;
Be Thou still my strength and shield.

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my fears subside;
Death of death, and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side:
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee;
I will ever give to Thee.
