1. Praise the Savior (Praise the Savior) Now and ever; (Now and ever) Praise Him, all beneath the skies; Prostrate lying, suffering, dying On the cross, a sacrifice. Victory gaining, life obtaining, Now in glory, He doth rise. 2. Man’s work faileth, (Man’s work faileth) Christ’s availeth; (Christ’s availeth) He is all our righteousness; He, our Savior, has forever Set us free from dire distress. Through His merit we inherit Light and peace and happiness. 3. Sin’s bond severed, (Sin’s bond severed) We’re delivered; (We’re delivered) Christ has bruised the serpent’s head; Death no longer is the stronger; Hell itself is captive led. Christ has risen from death’s prison; O’er the tomb He light has shed. 4. For His favor, (For His favor) Praise forever (Praise forever) Unto God the Father sing; Praise the Savior, praise Him ever, Son of God, our Lord and King. Praise the Spirit; Through Christ’s merit He doth us salvation bring.

1. I am trusting Thee, Lord, Jesus Trusting only Thee;
 Trusting Thee for full salvation,
 Great and free. I am trusting Thee for pardon; At Thy feet I bow;
 For Thy grace and tender mercy, Trusting now, Trusting now, Trusting now, Trusting now. 2. I am trusting Thee for cleansing 
In the crimson flood;
 Trusting Thee to make me holy
 By Thy blood. I am trusting Thee to guide me;
 Thou alone shalt lead; 
Every day and hour supplying 
All my need, All my need, All I need, All I need. 3. I am trusting Thee, Lord Jesus;
 Never let me fall; 
I am trusting Thee forever,
And for all. I am trusting Thee, Lord, Jesus, 
Trusting only Thee;
 Trusting Thee for full salvation, 
Great and free, Great and free, Great and free, Great and free.

1. I lay my sins on Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God; He bears them all, and frees us from the accursed load: I bring my guilt to Jesus, to wash my crimson stains White in his blood most precious, till not a spot remains. 2. I lay my wants on Jesus; all fulness dwells in him; He heals all my diseases, he doth my soul redeem: I lay my griefs on Jesus, my burdens and my cares; He from them all releases, he all my sorrows shares. 3. I rest my soul on Jesus, this weary soul of mine; His right hand me embraces, I on his breast recline. I love the name of Jesus, Immanuel, Christ, the Lord; Like fragrance on the breezes his name abroad is poured. 4. I long to be like Jesus, meek, loving, lowly, mild; I long to be like Jesus, the Father’s holy child: I long to be with Jesus amid the heav’nly throng, To sing with saints his praises, to learn the angels’ song. Refrain I lay my sins on Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God; he bears them all, and frees us from the accursed load: I rest my soul on Jesus, this weary soul of mine; his right hand me embraces, I on his breast recline.

Come My Soul 03:11
1. Come, my soul, thy suit prepare: Jesus loves to answer prayer; He Himself has bid thee pray, Therefore will not say thee nay; Therefore will not say thee nay. 2. Thou art coming to a King, Large petitions with thee bring; For His grace and power are such, None can ever ask too much; None can ever ask too much. 3. With my burden I begin: Lord, remove this load of sin; Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt, Set my conscience free from guilt; Set my conscience free from guilt. 4. Lord, I come to Thee for rest, Take possession of my breast; There Thy blood bought right maintain, And without a rival reign; And without a rival reign. 5. While I am a pilgrim here, Let Thy love my spirit cheer; As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend, Lead me to my journey’s end; Lead me to my journey’s end. 6. Show me what I have to do, Every hour my strength renew: Let me live a life of faith, Let me die Thy people’s death; Let me die Thy people’s death.

1. "Jesus sinners does receive": Word of surest consolation; Word all sorrow to relieve, Word of pardon, peace, salvation! Naught like this can comfort give: "Jesus sinners does receive" Naught like this can comfort give. 2. On God's grace we have no claim, Yet to us his pledge is given; He hath sworn by his own name, Open are the gates of heaven. Take to heart this word and live: "Jesus sinners does receive" Take to heart this word and live 3. When a helpless lamb doth stray, After it, the Shepherd pressing Thro' each dark and dangerous way Brings it back, his own possessing Jesus seeks thee, O believe, "Jesus sinners does receive" Jesus seeks thee, O believe! Jesus seeks thee, O believe! 4. Oh, how blest it is to know: Were as scarlet my transgression It shall be as white as snow By thy blood and bitter passion; For these words I now believe: "Jesus sinners does receive" For these words I now believe. 5. Now my conscience is at peace, From the Law I stand acquitted; Christ hath purchased my release And my every sin remitted. Naught remains my soul to grieve: "Jesus sinners does receive" Naught remains my soul to grieve! Naught remains my soul to grieve! Refrain "Jesus sinners does receive": Word of surest consolation; Word all sorrow to relieve, Word of pardon, peace, salvation!

1. None other Lamb, none other Name, None other Hope in heaven or earth or sea, None other Hiding-place from guilt and shame, None beside Thee. 2. My faith burns low, my hope burns low, Only my heart’s desire cries out in me By the deep thunder of its want and woe, Cries out to Thee. 3. Lord, Thou art Life tho I be dead, Love’s Fire Thou art however cold I be: Nor heaven have I, nor place to lay my head, Nor home, but Thee. Nor home, but Thee. Reprise None other Lamb, none other Name, None other Hope in heaven or earth or sea, None other Hiding-place from guilt and shame, None beside Thee. None beside Thee

1. Sovereign grace o’er sin abounding!
 Ransomed souls, the tidings swell;
 ’Tis a deep that knows no sounding;
 Who its breadth or length can tell?
 On its glories, on its glories, Let my soul for ever dwell! On its glories, on its glories,
 Let my soul for ever dwell! 2. What from Christ that soul can sever,
 Bound by everlasting bands?
 Once in Him, in Him for ever, 
Thus the eternal cov’nant stands:
 None shall pluck thee, none shall pluck thee,
 From the Strength of Israel’s hands. None shall pluck thee, none shall pluck thee, 
From the Strength of Israel’s hands. 3. Heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus,
 Long ere time its race begun;
 To His Name eternal praises;
 O what wonders He hath done!
 One with Jesus, one with Jesus,
 By eternal union one. One with Jesus, one with Jesus,
 By eternal union one. 4. On such love, my soul, still ponder,
 Love so great, so rich, so free;
 Say, while lost in holy wonder, 
“Why, O Lord, such love to me?”
 Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
 Grace shall reign eternally. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
 Grace shall reign eternally.

Holy Ghost 03:29
1. Holy Ghost, with light divine, Shine upon this heart of mine; Chase the shade of night away, Turn my darkness into day. Let me see my Savior’s face Let me all His beauties trace; Show those glorious truths to me Which are only known to Thee. 2. Holy Ghost, with power divine, Cleanse this guilty heart of mine; Long has sin, without control, Held dominion o’er my soul. Holy Ghost, with joy divine, Cheer this saddened heart of mine; Bid my many woes depart, Heal my wounded, bleeding heart. 3. Holy Spirit, all divine, Dwell within this heart of mine; Cast down every idol throne, Reign supreme, and reign alone. See, to Thee I yield my heart, Shed Thy life through every part; A pure temple I would be, Dedicated all to Thee.

1. He leadeth me, O blessed thought! O words with heav’nly comfort fraught! Whate’er I do, where’er I be Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me. 2. Sometimes ’mid scenes of deepest gloom, Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom, By waters calm, o’er troubled sea, Still ’tis His hand that leadeth me. Chorus: He leadeth me, He leadeth me, By His own hand He leadeth me; His faithful foll’wer I would be, For by His hand He leadeth me. 3. Lord, I would grasp Thy hand in mine, Not ever murmur nor repine; Content, whatever lot I see, Since ’tis my God that leadeth me. Chorus: He leadeth me, He leadeth me, By His own hand He leadeth me; His faithful foll’wer I would be, For by His hand He leadeth me. 4. And when my task on earth is done, When by Thy grace the vict’ry’s won, E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee, Since God through Jordan leadeth me. Chorus: He leadeth me, He leadeth me, By His own hand He leadeth me; His faithful foll’wer I would be, For by His hand He leadeth me. Refrain: He leadeth me, O blessed thought! O words with heav’nly comfort fraught! Whate’er I do, where’er I be Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

1. Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face; Here would I touch and handle things unseen; Here grasp with firmer hand eternal grace, And all my weariness upon Thee lean. [Chorus] Hallelujah! Come, Lord Jesus, Come! Take me to the eternal home! 2. This is the hour of banquet and of song; This is the heavenly table spread for me; Here let me feast, and feasting, still prolong The hallowed hour of fellowship with Thee. 3. Here would I feed upon the bread of God, Here drink with Thee the royal wine of Heaven; Here would I lay aside each earthly load, Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven. [Chorus] Hallelujah! Come, Lord Jesus, Come! Take me to the eternal home! 4. Mine is the sin, but Thine the righteousness: Mine is the guilt, but Thine the cleansing blood; Here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace; Thy Blood, Thy righteousness, O Lord my God! [Chorus] Hallelujah! Come, Lord Jesus, Come! Take me to the eternal home!

1. A few more years shall roll, A few more seasons come, And we shall be with those that rest Asleep within the tomb: Then, O my Lord, prepare My soul for that great day; O wash me in thy precious blood, and take my sins away. 2. A few more storms shall beat Upon this rocky shore, And we shall be where tempests cease, And surges swell no more: Then, O my Lord, prepare My soul for that calm day; O wash me in thy precious blood, and take my sins away. 3. A few more Sabbaths here Shall cheer us on our way, And we shall reach the endless rest, The eternal Sabbath day: Then, O my Lord, prepare My soul for that sweet day; O wash me in thy precious blood, and take my sins away. 4. ‘Tis but a little while, And he shall come again, Who died that we might live, Who lives that we with him may reign: Then, O my Lord, prepare My soul for that glad day; O wash me in thy precious blood, and take my sins away. [Refrain] A few more years shall roll, A few more seasons come… O wash me in thy precious blood, and take me to my home.

1. 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. 2. When I hear the wicked call, On the rocks and hills to fall, When I see them start and shrink On the fiery deluge brink, Then, Lord, shall I fully know— Not till then—how much I owe. [Chorus] Chosen not for good in me, Wakened up from wrath to flee, Hidden in the Savior’s side, By the Spirit sanctified, Teach me, Lord, on earth to show, By my love, how much I owe. 3. When I stand before the throne, Dressed in beauty not my own, When I see Thee as Thou art, Love Thee with unsinning heart, Then Lord, shall I fully know— Not till then—how much I owe. 4. When the praise of Heav’n I hear, Loud as thunders to the ear, Loud as many waters’ noise, Sweet as harp’s melodious voice, Then, Lord, shall I fully know— Not till then—how much I owe. [Chorus] Chosen not for good in me, Wakened up from wrath to flee, Hidden in the Savior’s side, By the Spirit sanctified, Teach me, Lord, on earth to show, By my love, how much I owe. Oft I walked beneath the cloud dark as midnight’s gloomy shroud but when fear is at the height Jesus comes and all is light Blessed Jesus bid me show doubting saints how much I owe Blessed Jesus bid me show by my love how much I owe.

1. With hearts full of praises, there stand a great throng In the presence of Jesus, and sing this new song: Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin, Unto him be the glory forever. Amen. 2. All we once were sinners, despised in his sight, Now arrayed in pure garments in praise we unite: Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin, Unto him be the glory forever. Amen. 3. He maketh the rebel a priest and a king, He hath bought us and taught us this new song to sing: Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin, Unto him be the glory forever. Amen. 4. How helpless and hopeless we sinners had been, If he never had loved us till cleansed from our sin: Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin Unto him be the glory forever. Amen. Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin Unto him be the glory forever. Amen. 5. Aloud in his praises our voices shall ring, So that others, believing, this new song shall sing Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin Unto him be the glory forever. Amen. Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin Unto him be the glory forever. Amen.
