Beams of Heaven Beams of heaven as I go Through this world and as below Guide my feet in peaceful ways Turn my midnights into days When in the dark This I would grope Faith always seems A star of hope And soon from all life's grief and danger Shall be free some day Often times my sky is clear Joy abounds without a tear Though a day so bright begun Clouds may hide tomorrow's sun But there will be a day That's always bright A day that never Yields to night and in it's light the streets of glory Shall be whole some day Harder yet may be the fight Write me off and yield to might Wickedness a while may rein Satan's cause may seem to gain But there is a God That rules above With hand of power And heart of love And if I'm right he'll fight my battle And I shall have peace someday Burdens now may crush me down Disappointments all around Troubles speak in mournful sigh Sorrow through a tear stained eye But there is a world Where pleasure reins No mourning soul Shall roam its plains And to that land of peace and glory I want to go someday

O Heart Bereav’d and Lonely (words by Fanny Crosby) O heart bereav’d and lonely, Whose brightest dreams have fled Whose hopes like summer roses Are wither’d crushed and dead Though link by link be broken And tears unseen may fall, Look up amid thy sorrow To him who knows it all. O cling to thy Redeemer Thy Saviour, Brother, Friend; Believe and trust His promise To keep you till the end; O watch and wait with patience And question all you will; His arms of love and mercy Are round about thee still. Look up, the clouds are breaking, The storm will soon be o’er And thou shall reach the haven Where sorrows are no more. Look up, be not discouraged; Trust on, whate’er befall; Remember, O remember, Thy Savior knows it all.

In the Secret of His Presence (words by Ellen Lakshmi Goreh & Geo. C. Stebbins) 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 And 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 and 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, ever told me of the sin which he must see Of the sin which he must see

In The Sand Tell me what do you favor Him to Joy In the company of strangers over Kin In this hour of hard confusion Un which you now depend Remember I'm more your brother Than your friend So run, run, run To the Sun And leave your demons in the sand So run, run, run To the Sun And leave your demons in the sand

Face to Face Face to face with Christ my savior Face to face, what will it be? When with rapture I behold him Jesus Christ, who died for me Face to face I shall behold him Far beyond, the starry sky Face to face in all his glory I shall see him by and by Only faintly now I see him With the darkling veil between But a blessed day is coming When his glory shall be seen Face to face I shall behold him Far beyond, the starry sky Face to face in all his glory I shall see him by and by What rejoicing in his presence When are banished grief and pain When the crooked ways are straightened And the dark things shall be plain Face to face I shall behold him Far beyond, the starry sky Face to face in all his glory I shall see him by and by Face to face O blissful moment Face to face to see and know Face to face with my redeemer Jesus Christ, who loves me so. Face to face I shall behold him Far beyond, the starry sky Face to face in all his glory I shall see him by and by

All Things Bright and Beautiful (words by Cecil F. Alexander) Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings He made their glowing colors, he made their tiny wings All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all. The purple headed mountain, the river running by, The sunset and the morning that brightens up the sky. The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun The ripe fruits in the garden, he made them every one. The tall trees in the green-wood, the meadows where we play The flowers by the water we gather every day. He gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell How great is God Almighty, who has made all things well.

Arise, O God Arise, O God, and shine in all thy saving might And prosper each design to spread thy glorious light Let healing streams of mercy flow That all the earth thy truth may know. That all the earth thy truth may know. Bring distant nations near to sing thy glorious praise Let every people hear and learn thy holy ways Reign, mighty God, assert thy cause, And govern by thy righteous laws, And govern by thy righteous laws. Send forth thy glorious pow’r that Gentiles all may see And earth present her store in converts born to thee God, our own God, thy church O bless, and fill the world with righteousness and fill the world with righteousness. To God, the only wise, the one immortal King, Let hallelujahs rise from every living thing Let all that breath, on every coast, Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

His Love Can Never Fail (words by E.S. Hall and E.O. Excell) I do not ask to see the way my feet will have to tread But only that my soul shall 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 faltering steps as joyfully I go And though I may not see his face my faith is strong and clear That in each hour of soul distress my savior will be near 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. I will not fear though darkness come abroad or 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 how frail My soul is satisfied to know, his love can never fail. 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.

Midst the Darkness Midst the darkness, storm and sorrow One bright gleam I see Well I know the blessed morrow Christ will come for me Midst the light, and peace, and glory Of the father’s home, Christ for me is waiting watching, Waiting till I come. Long the blessed Guide has led me By the desert road; Now I see the golden towers City of my God There, amidst the love and glory He is waiting yet On His hand a name is graven He can ne’er forget There, amidst the songs of heaven, Sweeter to His ear Is the footfall through the desert, Ever drawing near. There, made ready are the mansions, Glorious, bright, and fair; But the Bride the Father gave Him Still is wanting there. Who is this, who comes to meet me, On the desert way, As the Morning Star foretelling God’s unclouded day? He it is who came to win me, On the Cross of shame; In His glory well I know Him Evermore the same. O the blessed joy of meeting Asll the desert past! O the wondrous words of greeting He shall speak at last! He and I together ent’ring Those bright courts above He and I together sharing All the father’s love. Where no shade nor stain can enter, Nor the gold be dim; In the holiness unsullied I shall walk with Him. Meet companion, then for Jesus, From Him, for Him, made Glory of God’s grace for ever There in me kisplayed. He, who in the hour of sorrow Bore the curse alone: I, who through the lonely desert Trod where He had gone. He and I, in that bright glory One deep joy shall share: Mine, to be forever with Him, His, that I am there.
