Light of the world, Mary's Child,
Dawn on our darkened day.

You tell us God is good;
Yes, it is true, Mary's Child,
Shown on your cross of wood.

Author: Cecil F. AlexanderHymnal: PH1990 #49 (1990)Meter: 184.108.40.206.7.7Person Name: Cecil F. AlexanderLyrics: 1 Once in royal David's city
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a mother laid her baby
In a manger for His bed.
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little child.
2 He came down to earth from heaven
Who is God and Lord of all,
And His shelter was a stable,
And His cradle was a stall.
With the poor, oppressed, and lowly,
Lived on earth our Savior holy.
3 Jesus is our childhood's pattern;
Day by day, like us He grew;
He was little, weak and helpless,
Tears and smiles like us He knew;
And He feels for all our sadness,
And He shares in all our gladness.
4 And our eyes at last shall see Him,
Through His own redeeming love,
For that Child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heaven above;
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

God made their tiny wings. (Refrain)
2 The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning
That brightens up the sky, (Refrain)

The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
God made them every one. (Refrain)

And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well. (Refrain)

Author: Henry AlfordHymnal: PH1990 #399 (1990)Meter: 18.104.22.168Person Name: Henry AlfordLyrics: 1 We walk by faith and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
From Christ Who spoke as none e’er spoke;
But we believe Him near.
2 We may not touch His hands and side,
Nor follow where He trod;
But in His promise we rejoice,
And cry, “My Lord and God!”
3 Help then, O Lord, our unbelief;
And may our faith abound
To call on You when You are near
And seek where You are found:
4 That, when our life of faith is done,
In realms of clearer light
We may behold You as You are,
With full and endless sight.

Author: Henry AlfordHymnal: PH1990 #551 (1990)Meter: 22.214.171.124 DPerson Name: Henry AlfordLyrics: 1 Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home:
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God, our Maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.
2 All the world is God’s own field,
Fruit unto God's praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown,
Unto joy or sorrow grown;
First the blade, and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear:
Lord of harvest, grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.
3 For the Lord our God shall come,
And shall take the harvest home;
From each field shall in that day
All offenses purge away;
Give the angels charge at last
In the fire the tares to cast,
But the fruitful ears to store
In God's garner evermore.
4 Even so, Lord, quickly come
To Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin;
There forever purified,
In Thy presence to abide:
Come, with all Thine angels come,
Raise the glorious harvest home.

Come with Pentecostal power;
Give the church a stronger vision,
Help us face each crucial hour.
Built upon a firm foundation,
Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone,
Still the church is called to mission
That God's love shall be made known.
2 We would raise our alleluias
For the grace of yester-years;
For tomorrow's unknown pathway,
Hear, O Lord, our humble prayers.
In the church's pilgrim journey
You have led us all the way,
Still in presence move before us,
Fire by night and cloud by day.
3 Come, O Spirit, dwell among us;
Give us words of fire and flame.
Help our feeble lips to praise You,
Glorify Your holy name.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Three in one: what mystery!
We would sing our loud hosannas
Now and through eternity.Scripture: Psalm 118:22Languages: EnglishTune Title: EBENEZER
