All Praise to God, Who Reigns Above

Author: Johann J. Schütz Hymnal: LH1941 #19 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Deuteronomy 32:3 Lyrics: 1 All praise to God, who reigns above, The God of all creation, The God of wonders, pow'r, and love, The God of our salvation! With healing balm my soul He fills, The God who ev'ry sorrow stills,-- To God all praise and glory! 2 What God's almighty pow'r hath made, His gracious mercy keepeth; By morning dawn or evening shade His watchful eye ne'er sleepeth; Within the kingdom of His might, Lo, all is just and all is right,-- To God all praise and glory! 3 I cried to Him in time of need: Lord God, oh, hear my calling! For death He gave me life indeed And kept my feet from falling. For this my thanks shall endless be; Oh, thank Him, thank our God, with me,-- To God all praise and glory! 4 The Lord forsaketh not His flock, His chosen generation; He is their Refuge and their Rock, Their Peace and their Salvation. As with a mother's tender hand He leads His own, His chosen band,-- To God all praise and glory! 5 Ye who confess Christ's holy name, To God give praise and glory! Ye who the Father's pow'r proclaim, To God give praise and glory! All idols under foot be trod, The Lord is God! The Lord is God! To God all praise and glory! 6 Then come before His presence now And banish fear and sadness; To your Redeemer pay your vow And sing with joy and gladness: Though great distress my soul befell, The Lord, my God, did all things well-- To God all praise and glory! Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: LOBT DEN HERRN, IHR

What God Ordains Is Always Good

Author: Samuel Rodigast Hymnal: LH1941 #521 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Deuteronomy 32:4 Lyrics: 1 What God ordains is always good: His will abideth holy. As He directs my life for me, I follow meek and lowly. My God indeed In ev'ry need Doth well know how to shield me; To Him, then, I will yield me. 2 What God ordains is always good. He never will deceive me; He leads me in His own right way, And never will He leave me. I take content What He hath sent; His hand that sends me sadness Will turn my tears to gladness. 3 What God ordains is always good. His loving tho't attends me; No poison can be in the cup That my Physician sends me. My God is true; Each morn anew I'll trust His grace unending, My life to Him commending. 4 What God ordains is always good. He is my Friend and Father; He suffers naught to do me harm, Tho' many storms may gather. Now I may know Both joy and woe, Some day I shall see clearly That He hath loved me dearly. 5 What God ordains is always good. Though I the cup am drinking Which savors now of bitterness, I take it without shrinking. For after grief God grants relief, My heart with comfort filling And all my sorrow stilling. 6 What God ordains is always good. This truth remains unshaken. Though sorrow, need, or death be mine, I shall not be forsaken. I fear no harm, For with His arm He shall embrace and shield me; So to my God I yield me. Amen.

From God Shall Naught Divide Me

Author: Catherine Winkworth; Ludwig Helmbold Hymnal: LH1941 #393 (1941) Meter: Scripture: Joshua 24:18 Lyrics: 1 From God shall naught divide me, For He is true for aye, And on my path will guide me, Who else should often stray; His right hand holdeth me; For me He truly careth, My burdens ever beareth Wherever I may be. 2 When man's help and affection Shall unavailing prove, God grants me His protection And shows His pow'r and love. He helps in ev'ry need, From sin and shame redeems me, From chains and bonds reclaims me, Yea, e'en from death I'm freed. 3 God shall be my Reliance In sorrow’s darkest night; Its dread I bid defiance When He is at my right. I unto Him commend My body, soul, and spirit-- They are His own by merit-- All’s well then at the end. 4 Oh, praise Him, for He never Forgets our daily need; Oh, blest the hour whenever To Him our thoughts can speed; Yea, all the time we spend Without Him is wasted, Till we His joy have tasted, The joy that hath no end. 5 Yea, when the world shall perish With all its pride and power, Whatever worldlings cherish Shall vanish in that hour. But though in death they make The deepest grave our cover, When there our sleep is over, Our God will us awake. 6 What though I here must suffer Distress and trials sore, I merit ways still rougher; And yet there is in store For me eternal bliss, Yea, pleasures without measure, Since Christ is now my Treasure, And shall be evermore. Amen. Topics: Sanctification (The Christian Life) Consecration Languages: English Tune Title: VON GOTT WILL ICH NICHT LASSEN

May I ever love and fear Thee That Thy Word may be my choice! Oft were hardened sinners, Lord, Struck with terror by Thy Word; But to him who for sin grieveth Comfort sweet and hope it giveth. 3 Lord, Thy words are waters living Where I quench my thirsty need; Lord, Thy words are bread life-giving, On Thy words my Soul doth feed. Lord, Thy words shall be my light Thro' death's vale and dreary night; Yea, they are my sword prevailing And my cup of joy unfailing. 4 Precious Jesus, I beseech Thee, May Thy words take root in me; May this gift from heav'n enrich me So that I bear fruit for Thee!

O God, Thou Faithful God

Author: Catherine Winkworth; Johann Heermann Hymnal: LH1941 #395 (1941) Meter: Scripture: 1 Kings 3:5 Lyrics: 1 O God, Thou faithful God, Thou Fountain ever flowing, Who good and perfect gifts In mercy art bestowing, Give us a healthy frame, And may I have within A conscience free from blame, A soul unhurt by sin! 2 Grant Thou me strenth to do, With ready heart and willing Whate’er Thou shalt command, My calling here fulfilling; And do it when I ought, With all my might, and bless The work I thus have wrought, For Thou must give success. 3 Oh, let me never speak What bounds of truth exceedeth; Grant that no idle word From out my mouth proceedeth; And then, when in my place I must and ought to speak, My words grant pow'er and grace Lest I offend the weak. 4 If dangers gather round, Still keep me calm and fearless; Help me to bear the cross When life is dark and cheerless; And let me win my foe With words and actions kind. When counsel I would know, Good counsel let me find. 5 And let me with all men, As far as in me lieth, In peace and friendship live. And if Thy gift supplieth Great wealth and honor fair, Then this refuse me not, That naught be mingled there Of goods unjustly got. 6 If Thou a longer life Hast here on earth decreed me; If Thou through many ills To age at length wilt lead me, Thy patience on me shed. Avert all sin and shame And crown my hoary head With honor free from blame. 7 Let me depart this life Confiding in my Savior; Do Thou my soul receive That it may live forever; And let my body have A quiet resting-place Within a Christian grave; And let it sleep in peace. 8 And on that solemn Day When all the dead are waking, Stretch o’er my grave Thy hand, Thyself my slumbers breaking. Then let me hear Thy voice, Change Thou this earthly frame, And bid me aye rejoice With those who love Thy name. Amen.

Let me live a life of faith; Let me die Thy people’s death. Amen. Topics: Prayer Languages: English Tune Title: VIENNA
