Track Name: For All The Saints
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
Track Name: Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand
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
Track Name: Gracious Savior, Gentle Shepherd
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
Track Name: I Am Jesus' Little Lamb
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
Track Name: God Be Merciful to Me
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
Track Name: O Love That Will Not Let Me Go
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
Track Name: Jesus With Thy Church Abide
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
Track Name: O Day of Rest and Gladness
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
Track Name: Beneath the Cross of Jesus
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
Track Name: Psalm 130
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
Track Name: Child of the King
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
Track Name: On Jordan's Stormy Banks
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
Track Name: Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven
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 for his grace and favor

Praise him still the same forever
Slow to chide and swift to bless

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

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 the high eternal one

Praise him praise him
Praise him praise him
Praise the high eternal one
