Hymns for July 5 - Fifth Sunday After Pentecost


684 Come Unto Me, Ye Weary

“Come unto Me, ye weary, and I will give you rest.”
O blessed voice of Jesus, which comes to heart Oppressed!
It tells of benediction, of pardon, grace, and peace,
Of joy that hath no ending, of love that cannot cease.
“Come unto Me, ye wanderer’s, and I will give you light.”
O loving voice of Jesus, which comes to cheer the night!
Our hearts were filled with sadness, and we had lost our way;
But Thou has brought us gladness and songs at break of day.
“Come unto Me, ye fainting, and I will give you life.”
O cheering voice of Jesus, which comes to aid our strife!
The foe is stern and eager, the fight is fierce and long;
But Thou hast made us mighty and stronger than the strong.
“And whosoever cometh, I will not cast him out.”
O patient love of Jesus, which drives away our doubt.
Which, though we be unworthy of love so great and free,
Invites us very sinners to come, dear Lord, to Thee!

965 God Bless Our Native Land

God bless our native land;
firm may she ever stand
Through storm and night.
When the wild tempests rave,
Ruler of wind and wave,
Do Thou our country save
By Thy great might.
So shall our prayers arise
To God above the skies;
On Him we wait.
Thou who are ever nigh,
Guarding With watchful eye,
To thee aloud we cry:
God save the State!

Hymns for June 28 - Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

660 Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus

Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the cross.
Lift high His royal banner;
It must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory
His army He shall lead
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus;
The trumpet call obey;
Stand forth in might conflict
In this His glorious day.
Let all His faithful serve Him
Against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger
And strength to strength oppose.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the Gospel armor;
Each piece put on with prayer.
Where duty calls or danger,
Be never wanting there.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
This day the din of battle,
The next the victor’s song.
The soldiers, overcoming,
Their crown of life shall see
And with the King of Glory
Shall reign eternally.

662 Onward, Christian Soldiers

Onward Christian Solders, Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle, see His banners go!

Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus, Going on before.
Like a mighty army, moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading, where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.
Crowns and thrones may perish,
Kingdoms rise and wane,
But the Church of Jesus, constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never, ‘gainst the Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.
Onward, the, ye faithful, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices, in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor, unto Christ the King;
This through countless ages, men and angels sing.

Hymns for June 21 - Third Sunday after Pentecost

725 Children of the Heavenly Father

Children of the heavenly Father
Safely in His bosom gather;
Nestling bird nor star in heaven
Such a refuge e’er was given.
God His own doth tend and nourish;
In His holy courts they flourish.
From all evil things He spares them;
In His mighty arms He bears them.
Neither life nor death shall ever
From the Lord His children sever;
Unto them His grace He showeth,
And their sorrows all He knoweth.
Though He giveth or He taketh,
God His children ne’er forsaketh;
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy.

736 Consider How the Birds Above

Consider how the birds above
Feed day by day with carefree east
Does God not keep them in His love?
Are we not worth much more than these?
The lilies grow, they do not toil;
How fair is their fragility
If God clothes these, which quickly spoil,
Will He not clothe both you and me?
Set not your heart on food or drink,
Nor be weighed down by worldly care;
About such things the godless think,
Yet never thank the Lord in prayer.
Be on your guard against all greed,
For life is ore than what we own.
Our Father knows our every need
Before our needs to us are known.
Be not afraid to suffer loss
Of all the things for which you pray,
For He who faced for you the cross
Will give you strength to live each day.
Seek first God’s reign, His boundless grace
His holy name in all you do;
Christ first and last in every place;
All else will then be given you.
