Lyrics--
As We Daily Tra­vel On
Be Near Me, Dear Sav­ior, and Guide
Brighter, Bliss­ful Day Is Just Ahead, A
By Faith We Look Be­yond This Vale
Christ Is Com­ing Back from Glo­ry
Cross I’ll Bear for Je­sus, The
Dear Sinner, Your Life Is No More Than a Breeze
Deep in My Heart Is a Calm So Di­vine
Each Day My Heart Is Filled with Praise
Every Day Let Me Live Close to Je­sus
Far Away from God and Home
Far Beyond the Sta­rry Sky Is a Home
Father in Hea­ven So Loved a Lost World, The
From the Broad Way of Sin
Get Ready for the By and By
Great the Debt of Love I Owe
Happy on the Way to Hea­ven’s Glory
He Is Clos­er Than a Bro­ther © 1968
Heaven Smiles upon My Path­way
Hold My Hand O Bless­ed Savior
Homes Are Brok­en, Hearts Are Sad
I Am Go­ing to a City
I Am Kept Each Day in the Ho­ly Way
I Am On My Way to a Bet­ter Home
I Am Saved by the Blood
I Have Found a Heal­ing Fount­ain
I Was Bend­ing with a Hea­vy Bur­den
I’m a Pil­grim in This World
I’m Bound for Hea­ven, That Ci­ty Above
I’m Sing­ing Today
I’m So Glad I Found the Sav­ior
In God’s Gar­den There’s No Room
In the Beau­ty of Ho­li­ness the Lord
In the B­ible We are Told
I’ve Tra­veled Here for Je­sus
Jesus Calls for Hum­ble Ser­vants
Jesus’ Love, Won­drous Love
Jesus, Our Lord, Is Great and Strong
Jesus Su­ffered Cru­el Death
Jesus, Thou art Life to Me
Jesus Walks Be­side Me On Life’s Way
Joy of Hea­ven Is Swell­ing in My Soul, The
Let Me Live Close to Thee © 1968
Lift up Your Eyes and Never Fal­ter
Lift Your Eyes and Look Above
Living for Je­sus I Have
Look away to Hea­ven
Look to the Cross
Love of God, All Love Ex­cel­ling
Love of God Has Changed My Life, The
My View of Hea­ven’s Grow­ing Bright­er
No Strang­er Am I to God’s Mer­cy and Love
O Christian, Be Brave and with Faith Press Along
O I Love to read the Bi­ble Everyday
O Savior Dear to Thee
O Take Cour­age Weary Heart
O What Joy Abides
Often I Am Worn and Wea­ry
Often I Think of That Sweet Home
Often Times My Heart Grows Lone­ly
Often We Read the Bi­ble We Love
Oh, Won­der­ful Morn­ing! © 1967
On the Rest­less Sea of Life
Open to the House of Da­vid
Peace That Pass­eth Un­der­stand­ing
Praise the Lord, All Ye Peo­ple Praise
Savior, Lead Me Lest I Wan­der
Sing a Song of Glo­ry
So Oft I’ve Heard of a City of Light
So Often in Fond­est Dreams I Stroll
Story of the Cross, The © 1968
There Is a City of Beau­ty Untold
There Is a Gar­den Where Oft­en I Meet
There Will Be Joy for All
There Will Come a Day of Glad­ness By and By
There Will Dawn a Hap­py Morn­ing
There’ll Be a Hap­py Time To­mo­rrow
There’s a Crown of Life Await­ing the Faith­ful
There’s a Friend Who’s Dear­er
There’s a Hap­py Home Await­ing Me
There’s a Hap­py Land of Beau­ty
Trusting in the Love of Je­sus
Walking in the Way of Won­der­ful Love
Walking in the Way
We Have Oft­en Been Told of a Ci­ty
We’re a Hap­py Band of Sing­ers
What Joy Be­yond Ex­pres­sion
When My Heart Is Sore, and by Tri­als
When Our Jour­ney of Life Is End­ed
When the Gates of Glo­ry Open
When We Stood in Sin Con­demned
Where Look­est Thou, O Weary
With Faith in the Lord I Hold
With God’s Love My Heart Is Over­flow­ing
