Thou hidden source of calm repose, Thou all-sufficient love divine; My help and refuge from my foes, Secure I am, if Thou art mine; From sin and grief, from guilt and shame, I hide me, Jesus, in Thy name
Jesus, my All in all Thou art, My rest in toil, mine ease in pain; The med’cine of my broken heart; In war, my peace; in loss, my gain; My smile beneath the tyrant’s frown; In shame, my glory and my crown.
In want, my plentiful supply; In weakness, mine almighty power; In bonds, my perfect liberty; My light in Satan’s darkest hour; In grief, my joy unspeakable; My life in death; my Lord, my all.
O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder, Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
Chorus: Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Verse 2: When through the woods, and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees. When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze. Verse 3: And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing; Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in; That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin. Verse 4: When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation, And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart. Then I shall bow, in humble adoration, And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"
Here is love, vast as the ocean, Lovingkindness as the flood, When the Prince of Life, our Ransom, Shed for us His precious blood. Who His love will not remember? Who can cease to sing His praise? He can never be forgotten, Throughout Heav’n’s eternal days.
On the mount of crucifixion, Fountains opened deep and wide; Through the floodgates of God’s mercy Flowed a vast and gracious tide. Grace and love, like mighty rivers, Poured incessant from above, And Heav’n’s peace and perfect justice Kissed a guilty world in love.
Let me all Thy love accepting, Love Thee, ever all my days; Let me seek Thy kingdom only And my life be to Thy praise; Thou alone shalt be my glory, Nothing in the world I see. Thou hast cleansed and sanctified me, Thou Thyself hast set me free.
495 In Redemption hymnal
God holds the key of all unknown, And I am glad; If other hands should hold the key, Or if He trusted it to me, I might be sad.
What if tomorrow’s cares were here, Without its rest? I’d rather He unlocked the day, And, as the hours swing open, say, My will is best.
The very dimness of my sight Makes me secure; For, groping in my misty way, I feel His hand; I hear Him say, My help is sure.
I cannot read His future plans; But this I know: I have the smiling of His face, And all the refuge of His grace While here below.
Enough; this covers all my wants; And so I rest; For what I cannot, He can see, And in His care I saved shall be, Forever blest.
Before the throne of God above I have a strong and perfect plea. A great high Priest whose Name is Love Who ever lives and pleads for me. My name is graven on His hands, My name is written on His heart. I know that while in Heaven He stands No tongue can bid me thence depart.
When Satan tempts me to despair And tells me of the guilt within, Upward I look and see Him there Who made an end of all my sin. Because the sinless Savior died My sinful soul is counted free. For God the just is satisfied To look on Him and pardon me.
Behold Him there the risen Lamb, My perfect spotless righteousness, The great unchangeable I AM, The King of glory and of grace, One in Himself I cannot die. My soul is purchased by His blood, My life is hid with Christ on high, With Christ my Savior and my God!
474 in Redemption Hymnal Teach me Thy way, O Lord, teach me Thy way! Thy guiding grace afford, teach me Thy way! Help me to walk aright, more by faith, less by sight; Lead me with heav’nly light, teach me Thy way!
When I am sad at heart, teach me Thy way! When earthly joys depart, teach me Thy way! In hours of loneliness, in times of dire distress, In failure or success, teach me Thy way! When doubts and fears arise, teach me Thy way! When storms o’erspread the skies, teach me Thy way! Shine through the cloud and rain, through sorrow, toil and pain; Make Thou my pathway plain, teach me Thy way!
Long as my life shall last, teach me Thy way! Where’er my lot be cast, teach me Thy way! Until the race is run, until the journey’s done, Until the crown is won, teach me Thy way!
68 in Redemption Hymnal
O for a closer walk with God, A calm and heavenly frame, A light to shine upon the road That leads me to the Lamb!
Where is the blessedness I knew, When first I saw the Lord? Where is the soul refreshing view Of Jesus and His Word?
What peaceful hours I once enjoyed! How sweet their memory still! But they have left an aching void The world can never fill.
Return, O holy Dove, return, Sweet messenger of rest! I hate the sins that made Thee mourn And drove Thee from my breast.
The dearest idol I have known, Whate’er that idol be Help me to tear it from Thy throne, And worship only Thee.
So shall my walk be close with God, Calm and serene my frame; So purer light shall mark the road That leads me to the Lamb.
