#282: Hiding in Thee

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1
O safe to the Rock that is higher than I
My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly,
So sinful, so weary — Thine, Thine would I be:
Thou blest “Rock of Ages”, I’m hiding in thee.
CHORUS
Hiding in Thee,
Hiding in THeee,
Thou blest “”Rock of Ages”,
I’m hiding in Thee.

2
In the calm of the noontide, in sorrow’s lone hour,
In times when temptation casts o’er me its pow’r
In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea,
Thou blest “Rock of Ages”, I’m Hiding in Thee.
CHORUS

3
How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe,
I have fled to my Refuge and breathed out my woe;
How often, when trials like seabillows roll,
Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul,
CHORUS

#281: Never Alone

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

I’ve seen the lightning flashing And heard the thunder roll,

I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing, Which tried to conquer my soul;

I’v heard the voice of my Savior, He bid me still fight on —

He promised never to leave me, Never to leave me alone.

CHORUS

No, never alone, no, never alone —

He promised never to leave me, Never to leave me alone;

No, never alone, No, never alone —

He promised never to leave me, Never to leave me alone.

2

The world’s fierce winds are blowing — temptation’s sharp and keen;

I have a peace in knowing My Saviorstands between;

He stands to shield me from danger When all my friends are gone —

He promised never to leave me, Never to leave me alone.

CHORUS

3

When in affliction’s valley I tread the road of care,

My Savior helps me carry The cross so heavy to bear;

Tho all around me is  darkness And earthly joys are flown

My Savior whispers His promise — Never to leave me alone.

CHORUS

4

He died on Calv’ry’s mountain, For  me they pierced His side,

For me He opened that fountain, The crimson, cleansing tide;

For me  He’s waiting in glory Upon His heav’nly throne —

He promised never to leave me , Never to leave me alone.

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Dying with Jesus by death reckoned mine,

Living with Jesus a new life divine,

Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine —

Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

CHORUS

Moment by moment I’m kept in His love,

moment by moment I’ve life from above;

Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,

Moment by moment, O Lord I am Thine.

2

Never a trial that He is not there,

Never a burden that He doth not bear;

Never a sorrow that He doth not share —

Moment by moment, I’m under His care.

CHORUS

3

Never a heartache and never a groan,

Never a teardrop and never a moan,

Never a danger but there on the throne,

Moment by moment, He thinks of His own.

Never a weakness that He doth not feel,

Never a sickness that He cannot heal;

Moment by moment, in woe or in weal,

Jesus, my Savior, abides with me still.

#279: A Child of the King

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

My Father is rich in houses and lands,

He holdeth the wealth of the wold in His hands!

Of rubies and diamonds, of silver and gold,

His coffers are full — He has riches untold.

CHORUS

I’mm a child of the King,

A child of the King!

With Jesus, my Savior,

I’m a child of the King!

2

My Father’s own Son, the Savior of men,

Once wandered o’er earth as the poorest of them;

But now He is reigning forever on high,

And will give me a home in heav’n by and by.

CHORUS

3

I once was an outcast stranger on earth,

A sinner by choice and an alien by birth;

But I’ve been adopted, my name’ written down —

An heir to a mansion, a robe, and a crown.

CHORUS

4

A tent or a cottage, why should I care?

They’re building a palace for me over there!

Tho exiled from home, yet still I may sing:

All glory to God, I’m a child of the King!

CHORUS

 

#277: O Thou, In Whose Presence

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

O Thou, in whose presence my soul takes delight.

On whom in affliction I call,

My comfort by day and my song in the night,

My hope, my salvation, my all:

2

Where dost Thou, dear Shepherd, resort with Thy sheep,

To feed them in pastures of love? Say, why in the valley of death should I weep,

Or alone in this wilderness rove?

3

O why should I wander, an alien from Thee,

Or cry in the desert for bread?

Thy fears will rejoice when my sorrows they see,

And smile at the tears I tears I have shed.

4

He looks and tent thousand off angel rejoice,

And myriads wait for His word;

He speaks and eternity, filled with His voice,

Re-echoes the praise of the Lord.

5

Dear Sbepherd! I hear, and will follow Thy call,

I know the sweet sound of Thy voice;

Restore and defend me, for Thou art my all,

And in Thee I will ever rejoice.

#276: In the Hour of Trial

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

In the hour of trial, Jesus, plead for me

Lest, by base denial, I depart from Thee;

When Thou seest me  waver, With a look recall,

Nor for fear or favor Suffer me to fall.

2

With forbidden pleasures Would this vain world charm,

Or its sordid treasures Spread to work me harm;

Bring to my remembrance sad Gethsemane,

Or in darker semblance, Cross-crown’d Calvary.

3

Should Thy mercy send me Sorrow, toil and woe,

Or should pain attend me On my path below,

Grant that I may never Fail Thy hand to see,

Grant that I may ever Cast my care on Thee.

4

When, in dust and ashes, To the grave I sink,

While heav’ns glory flashes O’er the shelving brink,

On Thy truth relying Thru that mortal strife,

Lord, receive me, dying, To eternal life.

And my refuge unfailing is He.

That we all shall be gathered at last

In His kingdom above, by life,s waters so pure,

When this life with its trials is past.
