Jason Delgado This is where most the best stuff from Indelible Grace comes from. But these versions feel more raw to me. Love 'em! Favorite track: Jesus With Thy Church Abide.

For All the Saints For All the Saints Who from their labors rest Who thee by faith Before the world confessed Thy Name oh Jesus Be forever Blest Alleluia Alleluia Thou wast their rock Their fortress and their might Thou Lord Their captain In the well fought fight Thou in the darkness dreary Their one true light Alleluia Alleluia Oh may thy soldiers Faithful true and bold Fight as the saints Who nobly fought of old And win with them the victors crown of gold Alleluia Alleluia The golden evening Brightens in the west Soon soon to faithful Warriors comes their rest Sweet is the calm of paradise the blest Alleluia Alleluia

Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand Ten thousand times ten thousand In sparkling raiment bright The armies of the ransomed saints throng up the steeps of light Tis finished all is finished Their fine with death and sin Fling open wide the golden gates And let the victors in What rush of alleluias Fills all the Earth and sky What ringing of a thousand harps Bespeaks the triumph nigh O day for which creation And all its tribes were made O joy for all it’s former woes A thousand fold repaid O then what raptured greetings On kingdom’s happy shore What knitting severed friendships up Where partings are no more Than eyes with joy shall sparkle Than brimmed with tears of late Orphans no longer fatherless Nor widows desolate

Gracious Savior, Gentle Shepherd Gracious savior, gentle shepherd Our little ones are dear to thee Gathered with thine arms and carried In thy bosom may they be Sweetly gently safely tended from all want And danger free Tender Shepherd never leave them From thy fold to go a -stray By thy look of love directed May they walk the narrow way Thus direct them And Protect them Lest they fall an easy prey Let thy holy word instruct them Fill their minds with heavenly light Let thy love and grace constrain them To approve what e’er is right Take thine easy yoke and wear it And to prove thy burden light Cleanse their hearts from sinful folly In the stream thy love supply Mingled streams of blood and water Flowing from thy wounded side And to heavenly pastures lead them Where thy own still waters glide
5.
I am Jesus’ Little Lamb I am Jesus’ little lamb Ever glad at heart I am For my shepherd gently guides me Knows my need and well provides me Loves me every day the same Even calls me by my name Day by day at home away Jesus is my staff and stay When I hunger Jesus feeds me Into pleasant pastures leads me When I thirst he bids me go Where the quiet waters flow Who so happy as I am Even now the shepherds lamb And when my short life is ended By his angel host attended He shall hold me to his breast There within his arms to rest
6.
God Be Merciful To Me God be merciful to me On thy grace I rest my plea Plenteous in compassion thou Blot out my transgressions now Wash me make me pure within Cleanse O cleanse me from my sin My transgressions I confess Greif and guilt my soul oppress I have sinned against thy grace And provoked thee to thy face I confess thy judgement just Speechless I thy mercy trust I am evil born in sin Thou desirest truth within Thou alone my Savior art Teach thy wisdom to my heart Make me pure thy grace bestow Wash me whiter than the snow
7.
O Love That Will Not Let Me Go O Love That Will Not Let Me Go I rest my weary soul in thee I give thee back thy life I owe That in thine Ocean depths it flow may richer fuller be O light that follows’t all my way I yield my flickering torch to thee My heat restores its borrowed ray That in thy sunshine blaze its day may brighter fairer be O joy that seekest me through pain I cannot close my heart to thee I trace the rainbow through the rain And fill the promises not vain that morn shall tearless be O Cross that liftest up my head I dare not ask to fly from thee I lay in dust life’s glory dead And from the ground there blossoms red like that shall endless be

Jesus With Thy Church Abide Jesus with thy church abide Be her Savior Lord and guide While on earth her faith is tried We beseech thee hear us We beseech thee hear us May she guide the poor and blind Seek the lost until she find And the broken hearted bind We beseech thee hear us We beseech thee hear us Save her love from growing old Make her watchmen strong and bold Fence her round thy peaceful fold We beseech thee hear us We beseech thee hear us

O Day of Rest and Gladness O day of rest and gladness O day of joy and light O balm of care and sadness Most beautiful most bright On you the high and lowly Through ages joined in tune Sing ‘Holy Holy Holy’ To the great God in triune On you at the creation The light first had its birth On you for our salvation Chris rose from depths of Earth On you our Lord victorious The Spirit sent from heaven And thus on you most glorious A triple light was given You are a port protector From storms that round us rise A garden intersected with streams of paradise You are a cooing fountain in life’s dry dreary sand From you like Pisgah’s mountain we view our promised land Today on weary nations The heavenly manna falls To holy convocations The silver trumpet calls Where gospel light is glowing With pure and radiant beams And living water flowing With soul refreshing streams
10.
Beneath The Cross of Jesus Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand The shadow of a mighty Rock Within a weary land A home within the wilderness A rest upon the way From the burning of the noontide heat and the burden of the day Upon the cross of Jesus Mine eye a times can see The very dying form of One Who suffered there for me And from my stricken heart with tears Two wonders I confess The wonders of redeeming love And my unworthiness I take O cross thy shadow For my abiding place I ask no other sunshine Than the sunshine of his face Content to let the world go by To know no gain or loss My sinful self my only shame My glory all the cross

Psalm 130 From depths of woe I raise to thee the voice of lamentation Lord turn a gracious ear to me and hear my supplication If thou inequities does mark our secret sins and misdeeds dark O who shall stand before thee? O who shall stand before thee To wash away the crimson stain grace alone availeth Our works alas are all in vain and much the best life faileth No man can glory in thy sight, all must alike confess the light And live alone by mercy And live alone by mercy Therefore my trust is in the lord and not in mine own mirror On him my soul shall rest his word upholds my fiening spirit His promised mercy is my fort, my comfort, and my sweet support I wait for it with patience I wait for it with patience What though I wait the livelong night until the dawn appeareth My heart still trusteth in his might It doubteth not nor feareth Do thus O ye of Israel city see the spirit born indeed Wait till god appeareth And Wait till got appeareth Though great our sins and sore our woes his grace much more aboundeth His helping love no limit knows our upmost needeth sounded Our shepherd true and good is he and will at last let Israel free form All their sin and sorrow From all their sin and sorrow From all their sin and sorrow

Child Of The King My Father Is rich in houses and lands He holdeth the wealth of the world in his hands Of rubies and diamonds of silver and gold His coffers are full he has riches untold I am a child of the King I am a child of the King My fathers own son the Savior of man Once wandered the earth as the poorest of them But now he is reining forever on high And will give me a home in the heaven by and by I am a child of the King I am a child of the King I once was an outcast stranger on Earth A sinner by choice and an alien by birth But I’ve been adopted my name’s written down An heir to a mansion a robe and a crown I am a child of the King I am a child of the King. A tent or a cottage why should I care They’re building a palace for me over there Though exiled from home yet still I may sing Oh glory to God I’m a child of the King I am a child of the King I am a child of the King

On Jordan’s Stormy Banks On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand Cast a wishful eye To Canaan’s fair and happy land Where my possessions lie O’er all those wide extended plains Shines one eternal day There God the Son forever reins And scatters nigh away I am bound I am bound I am bound for promised land I am bound I am bound I am bound for promised land No chilling winds nor poisonous breath Can reach that hath for sure Sickness sorrow pain and death Are felt and feared no more When shall I see the happy place And be forever blessed When shall I se my father’s face And in his bosom rest I am bound I am bound I am bound for a promised land I am bound I am bound I am bound for promised land I am bond I am bound I am bound for a promised land I am bound I am bound I am bound for a promised land

Praise my Soul the King of Heaven Praise my soul the King of Heaven To his feet your tribute bring Ransomed healed restored forgiven Who like me his praise should sing? Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Praise the ever lasting king Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Praise the ever lasting king Praise him for his grace and favor To our fathers in distress Praise him still the same forever Slow to chide and swift to bless Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Glorious in his faithfulness Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Glorious in his faithfulness Father like he tends and spares us Well our feeble frame he knows In his hands he gently bears us Rescues is from all our foes Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Widely as his mercy goes Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Widely as his mercy goes Frail as summer’s flow’r we flourish, blow the wind and it is gone But while the mortals rise and perish God endures unchanging on Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Praise the high eternal one Praise him praise him Praise him praise him Praise the high eternal one
