So loved He the world that He gave us His Son
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin
And opened the life gate that all may go in

To every believer the promise of God
The vilest offender who truly believes
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives

Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain

Hoping trusting ever

That shadows a dry thirsty land
He hideth my life in the depths of His love
And covers me there with His hand
And covers me there with His hand

He taketh my burden away
He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved
He giveth me strength as my day

With numberless blessings each moment He crowns
And filled with His fullness divine
I sing in my rapture oh glory to God
For such a Redeemer as mine

When clothed in His brightness transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky
His perfect salvation His wonderful love
I’ll shout with the millions on high

All The Way My Savior Leads Me

Verse 1

All the way my Savior leads me
What have I to ask beside
Can I doubt His tender mercy
Who through life has been my Guide
Heav’nly peace divinest comfort
Here by faith in Him to dwell
For I know whate’er befall me
Jesus doeth all things well
For I know whate’er befall me
Jesus doeth all things well

Verse 2

All the way my Savior leads me
Cheers each winding path I tread
Gives me grace for ev’ry trial
Feeds me with the living bread
Though my weary steps may falter
And my soul athirst may be
Gushing from the Rock before me
Lo a spring of joy I see
Gushing from the Rock before me
Lo a spring of joy I see

Verse 3

All the way my Savior leads me
O the fullness of His love
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father’s house above
When my spirit clothed immortal
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages
Jesus led me all the way
This my song through endless ages
Jesus led me all the way

Pass Me Not

Savior Savior hear my humble cry
While on others Thou art calling
Do not pass me by

Verse 1

Pass me not O gentle Savior
Hear my humble cry
While on others Thou art calling
Do not pass me by

Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief
Kneeling there in deep contrition
Help my unbelief

Trusting only in Thy merit
Would I seek Thy face
Heal my wounded broken spirit
Save me by Thy grace

Verse 4

Thou the Spring of all my comfort
More than life to me
Whom have I on earth beside Thee
Whom in heaven but Thee

I Am Thine O Lord

Verse 1

I am Thine O Lord I have heard Thy voice
And it told Thy love to me
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee

Chorus

Draw me nearer nearer blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou hast died
Draw me nearer nearer nearer blessed Lord
To Thy precious bleeding side

Consecrate me now to Thy service Lord
By the pow’r of grace divine
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope
And my will be lost in Thine

Verse 3

Oh the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend
When I kneel in prayer and with Thee my God
I commune as friend with friend

Verse 4

There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee

My Savior First of All

Verse 1

When my life work is ended
And I cross the swelling tide
When the bright and glorious morning I shall see
I shall know my Redeemer
When I reach the other side
And His smile will be the first to welcome me

Chorus

I shall know Him I shall know Him
And redeemed by His side I shall stand
I shall know Him I shall know Him
By the print of the nails in His hand

Verse 2

Oh the soul thrilling rapture
When I view His blessed face
And the luster of His kindly beaming eye
How my full heart will praise Him
For the mercy love and grace
That prepared for me a mansion in the sky

Verse 3

Through the gates to the city
In a robe of spotless white
He will lead me where no tears will ever fall
In the glad song of ages
I shall mingle with delight
But I long to meet my Savior first of all

Ending

I shall know Him I shall know Him
By the print of the nails in His hand

O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation purchase of God
Born of His Spirit washed in His blood

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight

Echoes of mercy whispers of love
