Hymns


#754 Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending

1 Lo, He comes with clouds descending,

Once for favored sinners slain;

Thousand thousand saints attending,

Swell the triumph of His train.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

God appears on earth to reign.

2 Every eye shall now behold Him,

Robed in dreadful majesty!

Those who set at naught and sold Him,

Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,

Deeply wailing, deeply wailing,

Shall their true Messiah see.

3 Now the Savior, long-expected,

See in solemn pomp appear.

All His saints, by man rejected,

Now shall meet Him in the air.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

See the day of God appear.

4 Yea, amen! let all adore Thee,

High on Thine eternal throne.

Savior, take the pow'r and glory;

Claim the kingdom for Thine own.

O come quickly! O come quickly!

Everlasting God, come down!

 

 

#684 Precious Lord, Take My Hand

1 Precious Lord, take my hand,

Lead me on, help me stand.

I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.

Thro’ the storm, thro’ the night,

Lead me on to the light.

Take my hand, precious Lord;

Lead me home.

 

2 When my way grows drear,

Precious Lord, linger near-

When my life is almost gone.

Hear my cry, hear my call,

Hold my hand lest I fall.

Take my hand, precious Lord;

Lead me home.

 

#1013 Nothing That My Hands Can Do

1 There’s nothing that my hands can do

To save my guilty soul.

I cannot cleanse my filthy stains

Or make my spirit whole.

For nothing but the blood of Christ

Can all my sins erase.

I dare not claim my righteousness,

But hide within His grace.

‘Tis Christ who saved me from the depths,

God’s pardon I’ve received;

I’m washed within His precious blood,

My heart is sprinkled clean.

 

2 I’ll praise the God of holiness,

Of justice, truth, and might

Who guides me by His mighty hand

To walk within His light.

While Satan weaves his shallow lies

God speaks to me in love,

Reminding me His only Son

has bought me with His blood.

And Christ dispels my every doubt,

Through Him I am redeemed;

I’ll love because He loved me first,

I live because He lives.

 

3 My life is but a fleeting sigh,

A tear within the sea,

But You are everlasting, Lord,

And You’ve predestined me

To leave this fading world behind,

Not fearing death will come,

For then I’ll look on Jesus Christ

And to His arms I’ll run.

And when I see Him face to face,

What glory that will be

To look upon my Savior’s scars

And know they were for me.

 

 

#210 Praise the Lord, the Almighty

1 Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!

O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!

All ye who hear,

Now to His temple draw near;

Join me in glad adoration!


2 Praise to the Lord, Who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth!

Shelters thee under His wings, yea, so gently sustaineth!

Hast thou not seen

How thy desires all have been

Granted in what He ordaineth?


3 Praise to the Lord, Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;

Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.

Ponder anew

What the Almighty can do

If with His love He befriend thee.


4 Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore Him!

All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him!

Let the "amen"

Sound from His people again;

Gladly forever adore Him!

Corporate Confession of Sin

O God of Grace, You have imputed our sin to our substitute, and imputed his righteousness to our souls. You have clothed us with a bridegroom’s robe, decking us with jewels of holiness. But in our Christian walks we are still in rags. Our best prayers are stained with sin. Our sorrowful tears are filled with much impurity. Our receiving of the Spirit is tinctured with selfishness. We are always going into the far country and always returning home as prodigals. Always saying Father, forgive us and You, in Your great kindness, bring forth the best robe. Let us never lose sight of it. Amen.

Confession of Faith

Westminster Confession of Faith 1.6


The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for His own glory, man’s salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture: unto which nothing at any time is to be added, whether by new revelations of the Spirit or traditions of men. Nevertheless, we acknowledge the inward illumination of the Spirit of God to be necessary for the saving understanding of such things as are revealed in the word: and that there are some circumstances concerning the worship of God, and government of the Church, common to human actions and societies, which are to be ordered by the light of nature and Christian prudence, according to the general rules of the word, which are always to be observed.
