Center of My Life

*

O Lord, you are the center of my life:
I will always praise you,
I will always serve you,
I will always keep you in my sight.

Keep me safe, O God, I take refuge in you.
I say to the Lord, “You are my God.
My happiness lies in you alone;
my happiness lies in you alone.”

I will bless the Lord, who gives me counsel,
who even at night directs my heart.
I keep the Lord ever in my sight:
since he is at my right hand, I shall stand firm.

And so my heart rejoices, my soul is glad;
even in safety shall my body rest.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead,
nor let your beloved know decay.

You will show me the path of life,
the fullness of joy in your presence,
at your right hand,
at your right hand happiness forever.

The world is searching for an answer
A ray of hope in a hopeless world
Who can we turn to
Where is our rescue

He is the light light light
Light of the world
And he shine shine shines
All over the earth
Shining bright bright bright

There is someone he’s the answer
He’s the light and he’ll light the way
His name is Jesus and he came to save us

We Are Many Parts

*

Chorus:
We are many parts
We are all one body
And the gifts we have
We are given to share
May the Spirit of love make us one indeed
One, the love that we share
One, our hope in despair
One, the cross that we bear

God of all, we look to You
We would be Your servants true
Let us be Your love to all the world

So my pain is pain for You
In Your joy is my joy too
All is brought together in the Lord

All you seekers, great and small
Seek the greatest gift of all
If you love, then you will know the Lord

Sweet Hour Of Prayer

*

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
The joys I feel, the bliss I share,
Of those whose anxious spirits burn
With strong desires for thy return!
With such I hasten to the place
Where God my Savior shows His face,
And gladly take my station there,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I’ll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
May I thy consolation share,
Till, from Mount Pisgah’s lofty height,
I view my home and take my flight:
This robe of flesh I’ll drop and rise
To seize the everlasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
“Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!”

Mary’s Song (Millie Rieth)

*

My soul doth glory in your love, O Lord.
My soul doth glory in your love, O Lord.
For you gazed on your servant with compassion,
And you reached out and took me by the hand.

Great are you, God, and holy is your name.
Your mercy reaches to the end of time.
Ah, the lowly you raise to the heavens,
And the proud-hearted have no part with you.

Ah, how you fill the hungry with your love.
With empty hands the rich are sent away.
You will always be mindful of your mercy,
As you promised your people long ago.

My soul doth glory in your love, O Lord.
My soul doth glory in your love, O Lord.
For you smiled on your servant with compassion,
And you reached out and took me by the hand.

Jesus, Joy of Our Desiring

holyfam

*

1. Jesus, joy of our desiring,
holy wisdom, love most bright;
drawn by thee, our souls aspiring
soar to uncreated light.
Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
with the fire of life impassioned,
striving still to truth unknown,
soaring, dying round thy throne.

2. Through the way where hope is guiding,
hark, what peaceful music rings;
where the flock, in thee confiding,
drink of joy from deathless springs.
Theirs is beauty’s fairest pleasure;
theirs is wisdom’s holiest treasure.
Thou dost ever lead thine own
in the love of joys unknown.
