The Gospel of Thy Grace
(Whosoever Will Believe)

1 The Gospel of Thy grace
My stubborn heart has won,
For God so loved the world,
He gave His only Son,

Whosoever will believe,
Shall everlasting life receive!
Shall everlasting life receive!

2 The serpent lifted up,
Could life and healing give;
So Jesus on the cross
Bids me to look and live;
For: [Refrain]

3 The soul that sinneth dies:
My awful doom I heard;
I was for ever lost,
But for Thy gracious Word,
That: [Refrain]

4 Not to condemn the world
The Man of Sorrows came;
But that the world might have
Salvation through His Name;
For: [Refrain]

5 Lord, help my unbelief!
Give me the peace of faith,
To rest with childlike trust
On what Thy Gospel saith,
That: [Refrain]

With Harps and With Viols

1 With harps and with viols, there stand a great throng
In the presence of Jesus, and sing this new song:

Unto him who hath loved us and washed us from sin,
Unto him be the glory for ever. Amen.

2 All these once were sinners, defiled in his sight,
Now arrayed in pure garments in praise they unite:

3 He maketh the rebel a priest and a king,
He hath bought us and taught us this new song to sing:

4 How helpless and hopeless we sinners had been,
If he never had loved us till cleansed from our sin:

5 Aloud in his praises our voices shall ring,
So that others believing, this new song shall sing:

To Thee, O God, We Raise
Our Voice in Choral Singing

1 To Thee, O God, we raiseĀ 
Our voice, in choral singing;
We come, with prayer and praise,
Our hearts' oblations bringing;
Thou art our fathers' God,
And ever shalt be ours:
Our lips and lives shall laud
Thy name, with all our powers.

2 Thy goodness, like the dew
On Hermon's hill descending,
Is every morning new,
And tells of love unending.
We bless Thy tender care
That led our wayward feet,
Past every fatal snare,
To streams and pastures sweet.

3 We bless Thy Son, who bore
The cross, for sinners dying;
Thy Spirit we adore,
The precious blood applying.
Let work and worship send
Their incense unto Thee,
Till song and service blend,
Beside the crystal sea.
—author: A. T. Pierson (1837-1911);
composer: Johann Crüger


The Gospel Call

1 The Spirit and the Bride say "Come!"
And take the water of life!
O, blessed call! Good news to all
Who tire of sin and strife!

The Spirit says "Come!"
The Bride says "Come!"
And drink of the water of life.
The Spirit says "Come!"
The Bride says "Come!"
And drink of the water of life.

2 "O, Come!" Let ev'ry one who hears
To all who are near him now say,
"I heard the sound,
The stream I found,
Behold the living way!"

3 Whoever will, come, taste and see!
Your longing the Saviour can fill!
The stream is free
To you and me,
And whosoever will!
—author: A. T. Pierson (1837-1911);
composer: Geo. C. Stebbins


Oh, I Am So Happy in Jesus!

1 Oh, I am so happy in Jesus!
His blood has redeemed me from sin;
I weep and I sing in my gladness,
To know He is dwelling within.

Oh, I am so happy in Jesus,
From sin and from sorrow so free—
So happy that He is my Saviour,
So happy that Jesus loves me!

2 Oh, I am so happy in Jesus!
He taught me the secret of faith—
To rest in believing His promise,
And trust whatsoever He saith.

3 Oh, I am so happy in Jesus!
I lay my whole soul at His feet;
The love He has kindled within me
Makes service and suffering sweet.

4 Oh, I am so happy in Jesus!
How sweet to win others to Him!
Lord, let not my lamp burn in secret;
Oh, let not the shining be dim.

5 Oh, I am so happy in Jesus!
If earth in His love is so blest,
What joy, in His glorified presence,
To sit at His feet as His guest.
