UCCP AKO - Part 88

He Washed My Eyes with Tears

 He washed my eyes with tears that I might see,
The broken heart I had was good for me;
He tore it all apart and looked inside,
He found it full of fear and foolish pride.
He swept away the things that made me blind
And then I saw the clouds were silver lined;
And now I understand ’twas best for me
He washed my eyes with tears that I might see.

He washed my eyes with tears that I might see
The glory of Himself revealed to me;
I did not know that He had wounded hands
I saw the blood He spilt upon the sands.
I saw the marks of shame and wept and cried;
He was my substitute for me He died;
And now I’m glad He came so tenderly;
And washed my eyes with tears that I might see.

He Lives

I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today
I know that He is living, whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer
And just the time I need him He’s always near.

Refrain:
He lives, he lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know he lives?  He lives within my heart.

In all, the world around me I see His loving care,
And through my heart grows weary I never will despair;
I know that he is leading through all the stormy blast
The day of his appearing will come at last.

Rejoice, rejoice, o Christian lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The hope of all who seek him, the help of all who find;
None other is so loving, so good and kind.

 

He Keeps Me Singing

THERE’S WITHIN MY HEART A MELODY; JESUS WHISPERS SWEET AND LOW:
“FEAR NOT, I AM WITH THEE; PEACE BE STILL,” IN ALL OF LIFE’S EBB AND FLOW.
REFRAIN:
JESUS, JESUS, JESUS—SWEETEST NAME I KNOW,
FILLS MY EVERY LONGING, KEEPS ME SINGING AS I GO.
MY LIFE WAS WRECKED BY SIN AND STRIFE; DISCORD FILLED MY HEART WITH PAIN.
JESUS SWEPT ACROSS THE BROKEN STRINGS, STIRRED THE SLUMB’RING CHORDS AGAIN.
FEASTING ON THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE, RESTING ‘NEATH HIS SHELT’RING WING,
ALWAYS LOOKING ON HIS SMILING FACE—THAT IS WHY I SHOUT AND SING.
SOMETIMES HE LEADS THRO’ WATERS DEEP, TRIALS FALL ACROSS THE WAY;
THO’ SOMETIMES THE PATH SEEMS ROUGH AND STEEP, SEE HIS FOOTPRINTS ALL THE WAY.
SON HE’S COMING BACK TO WELCOME ME, FAR BEYOND THE STARRY SKY.
I SHALL WING MY FLIGHT TO WORLDS UNKNOWN; I SHALL REIGN WITH HIM ON HIGH.

 

Hark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices

Hark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices

Hark ten thousand harps and voices,
sound the note of praise above,
Jesus reigns and heaven rejoices,
Jesus reigns, the God of love:
See, He sits on yonder throne—Jesus rules the world alone.

REFRAIN:     Alleluiah! Alleluiah! Alleluiah! Amen.

Jesus Thou whose glory brightens,
all above and gives it worth;
Lord of life, Thy smile enlightens,
cheers and lifts Thy saints on earth:
When we think of love like Thine, Lord we own it love divine:

King of glory reign forever,
Thine an everlasting crown;
Nothing from Thy love shall sever,
those whom Thou hast made Thine own:
Happy objects of Thy grace, destined to behold Thy face:

Savior hasten Thine appearing,
bring o bring the glorious day,
When the awful command hearing,
heaven and earth shall pass away,
Then with golden harps we’ll sing, glory, glory to our King:

 

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, o God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not
As Thous hast been, Thou forever wilt be.

Refrain:
Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun moon and stars in their courses above.
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside!
