In The Dark (Savior Comfort Me)

In the dark and mournful day, 

When earth’s riches flee away,

And the last hope will not stay—

Savior, comfort me!

When the secret idol’s gone 

That my poor heart yearned upon,

Desolate, bereft, alone— 

Savior, comfort me! 

In the hour of sad distress, 

Let me know you love no less,

Help me trust your faithfulness— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Savior, comfort me!

So it shall be good for me, 

Much afflicted now to be, 

If you will but tenderly— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Jesus, you were sorely tried, 

In the darkness crucified,

O what strength to be my guide! 

Savior, comfort me!

In the hour of sad distress, 

Let me know you love no less,

Help me trust your faithfulness— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Savior, comfort me!

O Zion (Psalm 137)

By the waters, by the waters of Babylon, Babylon

We sat down, we sat down and wept

O Zion, sweet Zion

But we’re going home, it won’t be long

O Zion, O Zion

Inside My Heart

I have felt it ever growing—

Hell inside my heart,

Always grumbling, blaming others—

Wishing it could stop.

Losing mercy, slow compassion,

Needing to be right,

Hypocritical foundations

Reinforced with spite.

Father, write your word in piercing

flames upon my heart;

Stake your claim inside of me, 

and never there depart.

Jesus, for my sin atoning,

Lately lost on me;

Holy Spirit, ever working,

I refuse to see:

Trusting in my worldly riches,

Clinging to myself,

Constant self-imposed salvation,

Seeking hell itself.

Father, write your word in piercing

flames upon my heart;

Stake your claim inside of me, 

and never there depart.

Cure this wretched mind, its selfish

plans to wholly fail;

Rip this hell right out of me,

and let me live again!

You Called

You called, I ran from you, my Lord, 

For I would not trust in your word.

Still from the sea my life you saved, 

And brought me out of death’s dark grave

You called, they turned to you, O God 

And by your mercy they were awed;

You spared their lives in your great grace, 

And now they bow before your face.

O make my heart like yours

And break my heart like yours, 

O make my heart like yours 

I watch and wait for them to die  

Beneath your shade, I moan and sigh

At all the love to them bestowed  

For I thought it, to me, was owed.

O make my heart like yours

And break my heart like yours, 

O make my heart like yours 

My anger, Lord, at you is sin, 

For mercy from you none can win;

And mercy to them I must show  

For to my God my all I owe! 

O make my heart like yours

And break my heart like yours, 

O make my heart like yours

Take My Life And Let It Be

Take my life and let it be 

consecrated, Lord, to thee.

Take my moments and my days; 

let them flow in ceaseless praise,

let them flow in ceaseless praise.

 

Take my hands and let them move 

at the impulse of thy love.

Take my feet and let them be 

swift and beautiful for thee,

O my Lord, all my life, 

I owe to you, I owe to you;

So take my life, pour me out,

All for you, all for you.

 

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 silver and my gold; 

let me not a mite withhold.

Take my intellect and use 

every power as thou shalt choose,

every power as thou shalt choose.

 

O my Lord, all my life, 

I owe to you, I owe to you;

So take my life, pour me out,

All for you, all for you.

 

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.

 

Take my love; my Lord, I pour 

at thy feet its treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be 

ever, only, all for thee,

Be Satisfied

Do not all things belong to him?

Does not creation bear his sign?

Does not the Lord of all deserve to do what is

Perfect in his sight?

 

Are not his purposes all good?

Are not his reasons pure and right?

Does not the Lord of all give everything we need

To make our way through life?

But I complain and grumble,

Wanting everything I see.

 

Teach me to be satisfied,

Be satisfied,

Be satisfied in you.

 

Are not my gifts from God enough?

Is not his kindness purely grace?

Does not he simply give me more than, by my work,

I can say I’ve claimed?

 

Do I not long to see my God

Pour out his blessings on all men?

Will I look out and see the last be first and say

“Hallelujah, Amen!”?

 

Will I complain when you show to others

Generosity?

 

Teach me to be satisfied,

Be satisfied,

Be satisfied in you.

Foxes Have Holes

Foxes have holes and birds have nests,

But I have nowhere to lay my head.

Follow me and leave your loves behind,

And let the dead bury their own dead.

 

Mother may call and beg of you,

Father may scoff and turn his back.

But don’t you fear, no, don’t you weep,   

For I will give you all you lack.

 

‘Cause I’m on a way narrow, steep and long.

Hear what I say: to me you belong. 

‘Cause I’m on a way narrow, steep and long.

Hear what I say: to me you belong.

 

Let me be clear and not confuse:

It’s everything that I demand.

I sought you out, called you by name,              

Now heed my call with plow in hand.

 

‘Cause I’m on a way narrow, steep and long

Hear what I say: to me you belong. 

For there comes a day, my kingdom, it will come

No more delay: your journey will be done.

Yield Not To Temptation

Yield not to temptation,

For yielding is sin;

Each vict’ry will help you,

Some other to win;

Fight valiantly onward,

Your wicked heart subdue;

Look ever to Jesus,

He will carry you through.

 

Though weak you feel and wanting,

With darkness all around 

The world, the flesh, the devil,

Conspire to bring you down;

Do not forget your Master,

Who fought the same as you

Look ever to Jesus,

He will carry you through.

 

Ask the Savior to help you,

Comfort, strengthen and keep you;

He is willing to aid you,

Yes, he’ll carry, he will carry you through.

 

To him that o’ercometh,

God giveth a crown;

Through faith we will conquer,

Though often cast down;

He who is our Savior,

Our strength will renew;

Look ever to Jesus,

He will carry you through.

 

Ask the Savior to help you,

Comfort, strengthen and keep you;

He is willing to aid you,

Yes, he’ll carry, he will carry you through.

Take Up Your Cross

Take up your cross, the Savior said,

If you would my disciple be;

Take up your cross with willing heart,

And humbly follow after me.

 

Take up your cross; let not its weight

Fill your weak spirit with alarm:

The strength of Christ shall bear you up

And brace your heart and nerve your arm.

 

Take up your cross, heed not the shame,

And let your foolish pride be still:

The Lord for you accepted death

Upon a cross on Calvary’s hill.

 

Take up your cross, then, in Christ’s strength,

And calmly every danger brave:

It guides you to abundant life

And leads to victory o’er the grave.

 

I will follow, I will follow you.

Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost (Pentecost Sunday)

Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost, 

taught by thee, we covet most

of thy gifts at Pentecost, 

holy, heavenly love.

 

Love is kind, and suffers long, 

love is meek, and thinks no wrong,

love than death itself more strong; 

therefore give us love.

 

Prophecy will fade away, 

melting in the light of day;

love will ever with us stay; 

therefore give us love.

 

[Prayer interlude in Korean]

Merciful God, As your Spirit came upon your church in Jerusalem, grant us your Spirit of grace and love, that our lives may more fully reflect your glory and that the world might believe, to the honor of your name. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Faith and hope and love we see 

joining hand in hand agree;

but the greatest of the three, 

and the best, is love.

 

From the overshadowing 

of thy gold and silver wing

shed on us, who to thee sing,

holy, heavenly love.

 

Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost,

Give us love; holy, heavenly love.

Holding fast while in the tempest,

Satisfies abundantly;

Jesus Has A Table Spread (Come & Dine)

Jesus has a table spread 

Where the saints of God are fed, 

He invites His chosen people, 

“Come and dine”;

With His manna He does feed 

And supplies our every need:  

Oh, ’tis sweet to sup with Jesus all the time!

 

“Come and dine, Come and dine”;  

You may feast at Jesus’ table all the time;

He who turned water to wine, 

To the hungry still he calls, “Come and dine.” 

 

The disciples came to land, 

Thus obeying Christ’s command, 

For the Master called unto them, 

“Come and dine”;

There they found their heart’s desire, 

Bread and fish upon the fire; 

Thus He satisfies the hungry every time.

 

“Come and dine, Come and dine”;  

You may feast at Jesus’ table all the time;

He who turned water to wine, 

To the hungry still he calls, “Come and dine.”

 

Soon the Lamb will take His bride 

To be ever at His side, 

All the host of heaven will assembled be;

Oh, then what a glorious sight, 

All the saints in spotless white; 

And with Jesus they will feast eternally.

 

“Come and dine, Come and dine”;  

You may feast at Jesus’ table all the time;

He who turned water to wine, 

To the hungry still he calls, “Come and dine.”

 

“Come and dine, Come and dine”;  

You may feast at Jesus’ table all the time;

He who turned water to wine, 

To the hungry still he calls, “Come and dine.”

Blind Like Me

There was a time I thought myself
A good man to admire;
I flashed a smile, convinced of all
The people I inspire.
I bought the line that way down deep
We're all a shining light;
Left to myself I'd rise to be
A star that's burning bright.
But then you showed me just how much
I hide the truth with ease;
How desperately I love myself
And cover this disease. 

You didn't come for the well
Or for those who think so clearly they can see.
But you came, you came, you came for the sick,
The poor, the weak and the blind like me!

Well I can't hide behind a cap and gown,
A job or some degree  
No accolade can fix my heart
Or fill my greatest need
All the education I could buy
Might only make me more  
Clever and deceptive than
The man I was before  
So save me now, O Son of God,
Have mercy on my soul
All my goodness I disown
For you alone can make me whole! 

You didn't come for the well
Or for those who think so clearly they can see.
But you came, you came, you came for the sick,
The poor, the weak and the blind like me!

If they ask me how I see,
What more is there to say? 
You found me, raised me, gave me sight
And turned my night to day!
Now there’s no way I can look down
On those who think they’re fine;
It’s all by grace I’m living now,
By grace I walk the line.
So I’m done with all the pretenses,

The shows of strength and pride;
I’ll boast in you, my Savior, King,
My Lord and faithful guide.

You didn't come for the well
Or for those who think so clearly they can see.
But you came, you came, you came for the sick,
The poor, the weak and the blind like me!

You didn't come for the well
Or for those who think so clearly they can see.
But you came, you came, you came
For the sick, the vile, the wicked,
The poor, the weak and the blind like me!

I’m blind, I’m lost, I’m dead—without you.
I’m blind, I’m lost, I’m dead—without you.
I’m blind, I’m lost, I’m dead—without you.

How long will we take counsel in our souls,

Having sorrow in our hearts all the day?"

Hope in God

Behold, the dwelling place of God

is with man.

He will dwell with them,

and they will be his people,

and God himself will be with them as their God.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,

and death shall be no more,

neither shall there be mourning,

nor crying, nor pain anymore,

for the former things have passed away.

Rejoice, The Lord Is Risen

Rejoice, the Lord is ris’n; 

Let all his friends rejoice;                                     

This day the Lord has left his pris’n; 

The grave has heard his voice—

O the grave has heard his voice.

                              

The grave has felt his pow’r, 

And has become his prey;                                              

For darkness had its fearful hour;

 But now again 'tis day—

O but now again ’tis day!

 

Now we have hope, living hope;

We’ve been born again

And the grave has lost its sting. 

We will rise with our Lord,

Singing “Hallelujah!”

Come and let his praises ring!

                                   

The Lord is ris'n indeed, indeed

And he will die no more.                                           

He lives again, and lives to plead, 

The mercy-seat before.

O the mercy-seat before.

 

Now we have hope, living hope;

We’ve been born again

And the grave has lost its sting. 

We will rise with our Lord,

Singing “Hallelujah!”

Come and let his praises ring!

 

We see him not, 'tis true, ’tis true;

But still we may be glad.

The work is done he came to do; 

Then why should we be sad?

O then why should we be sad?

 

Now we have hope, living hope;

We’ve been born again

And the grave has lost its sting. 

We will rise with our Lord,

Singing “Hallelujah!”

Come and let his praises ring!

 

Now we have hope, living hope;

We’ve been born again,

Come and let his praises ring!

Love Made Low

This is a King unlike the kings I've seen before

This is a King unlike the kings I've seen before                                        

He lays aside his glory to be the poorest of the poor

This is a King unlike the kings I’ve seen before

 

The One who hung the stars has made himself a slave

The One who hung the stars has made himself a slave

He bends to those unbending, prideful and depraved

The One who hung the stars has made himself a slave

 

O such grace unknown

This is love made low

This is love made low

 

How can he love me when he knows I’ll go astray?

How can he love me when he knows I’ll go astray?

My heart, it is so fickle, his name I will betray

How can he love me when he knows I’ll go astray?

 

This is a King unlike the kings I've seen before

This is a King unlike the kings I've seen before

He says he’ll wash me clean and give me life forevermore 

This is a King unlike the kings I’ve seen before

 

O such grace unknown

This is love made low

O such grace unknown

This is love made low   

This is Love made low

This is love made low   

This is Love made low
