Your Great Name We Praise
Words: Walter Chalmers Smith | Music: Welsh melody
Chorus: Bob Kauflin | (c) 2001 Sovereign Grace Music

Immortal, invisible, God only-wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes!
Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Not wanting, nor wasting, you rule us in might.
Your justice like mountains high soaring above,
Your clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.

Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

All life comes from you, Lord, to both great and small;
In all life you live, Lord, the true life of all.
We blossom and flourish, but quickly grow frail;
We wither and perish, but you never fail. Chorus

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Your angels adore you, all veiling their sight.
All praise we would render, O Father of grace,
Till one day in splendor we see face to face. Chorus 2x

His Love Can Never Fail
Words: E. S. Hall | Music: Christopher Miner

I do not ask to see the way my feet will have to tread,
But only that my soul may feed upon the living Bread.
‘Tis better far that I should walk by faith close to his side;
I may not know the way I go, but oh, I know my Guide.

His love can never fail, his love can never fail!
My soul is satisfied to know his love can never fail,
My soul is satisfied to know his love can never fail!

And if my feet should go astray–they cannot, for I know
That Jesus guides my falt’ring steps as joyfully I go.
And though I may not see his face, my faith is strong and clear,
That in each hour of sore distress, my Savior will be near. Refrain

I will not fear though darkness come abroad o’er all the land,
If I may only feel the touch of his own loving hand.
And though I tremble when I think how weak I am and frail,
My soul is satisfied to know his love can never fail. Refrain

In the Secret of His Presence
Words: Ellen Goreh | Music: Christopher Miner

In the secret of his presence how my soul delights to hide;
Oh, how precious are the lessons which I learn at Jesus’ side.
Earthly cares forever vex me, all my trials lay me low;
But when Satan comes to tempt me, to that secret place I go,
To that secret place I go.

When my soul is faint and thirsty, ‘neath the shadow of his wing
There is cool and pleasant shelter and a fresh and crystal spring.
And my Savior rests beside me as we hold communion sweet;
If I tried, I could not utter what he says when thus we meet,
What he says when thus we meet.

Only this I know: I tell him all my doubts, my griefs, my fears;
Oh, how patiently he listens, and my sorrowed soul he cheers.
Do you think he ne’er reproves me? What a false friend he would be,
If he never, never told me of the sin which he must see,
Of the sin which he must see.

What Wondrous Love Is This
Words & Music: American Folk Hymn

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, beneath God’s righteous frown,
Christ laid aside his crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside his crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb I will sing, I will sing,
To God and to the Lamb I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb, who is the great I Am,
While millions join the theme I will sing, I will sing,
While millions join the theme I will sing.

And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on,
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on.
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be,
And through eternity I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on,
And through eternity I’ll sing on.

O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus
Words: Samuel Trevor Francis | Music: Traditional Welsh melody

O the deep, deep love of Jesus: vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me.
Underneath me, all around me is the current of thy love,
Leading onward, leading homeward, to thy glorious rest above.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus: spread his praise from shore to shore!
How he loveth, ever loveth, changeth never, nevermore.
How he watches o’er his loved ones, died to call them all his own;
How for them he intercedeth, watcheth o’er them from the throne.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus: love of every love the best!
‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing, ’tis a haven sweet of rest.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus: ’tis a heav’n of heav’ns to me,
And it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to thee.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus: ’tis a heav’n of heav’ns to me,
And it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to thee.

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee
Words: Henry Van Dyke | Music: Ludwig van Beethoven

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day.

All thy works with joy surround thee, earth and heav’n reflect thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around thee, center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain, call us to rejoice in thee.

Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blest,
Wellspring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, all who live in love are thine;
Teach us how to love each other, lift us to the Joy divine.

Mortals, join the happy chorus which the morning stars began;
Father love is reigning o’er us, brother love binds man to man.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife,
Joyful music leads us sunward in the triumph song of life.
