What cheering words are these!

Author: John Kent Hymnal: Book of Worship with Hymns and Tunes #470 (1899) Topics: Cheerfulness Lyrics: 1 What cheering words are these! Their sweetness who can tell? In time and to eternity, ’Tis with the righteous well. 2 In every state secure, Kept by Jehovah’s eye, ’Tis well with them while life endures, And well when called to die. 3 ’Tis well when joys arise, ’Tis well when sorrows flow; ’Tis well when darkness veils the skies, And strong temptations blow. 4 ’Tis well when on the mount They feast on dying love; And ’tis as well, in God’s account, When they the furnace prove. 5 'Tis well when Jesus calls: "From earth and sin, arise, Join with the hosts of virgin souls, Made to salvation wise!" Amen. Tune Title: LAKE ENON

My Father! cheering name!

Author: Anon. Hymnal: Book of Worship with Hymns and Tunes #522 (1899) Topics: Cheerfulness Lyrics: 1 My Father! cheering name! Oh, may I call Thee mine? Give me with humble hope to claim A portion so divine. 2 This can my fears control, And bid my sorrows fly: What real harm can reach my soul Beneath my Father's eye? 3 Whate'er Thy will denies, I calmly would resign: For Thou art just, and good, and wise: Oh, bend my will to thine! 4 Whate'er Thy will ordains, Oh, give me strength to bear; Still let me know a Father reigns, And trust a Father's care. 5 Thy ways are little known To my weak, erring sight; Yet shall my soul, believing, own, That all Thy ways are right. Amen. Tune Title: BRADEN

When All Your Mercies, O My God

Author: Joseph Addison Hymnal: Trinity Hymnal (Rev. ed.) #56 (1990) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Topics: Cheerfulness Lyrics: 1 When all your mercies, O my God, my rising soul surveys, transported with the view, I'm lost in wonder, love, and praise. 2 Unnumbered comforts to my soul your tender care bestowed, before my infant heart conceived from whom those comforts flowed. 3 When worn with sickness, oft have you with health renewed my face; and when in sins and sorrows sunk, revived my soul with grace. 4 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts my daily thanks employ; nor is the least a cheerful heart that tastes those gifts with joy. 5 Through ev'ry period of my life your goodness I'll pursue; and after death, in distant worlds, the glorious theme renew. 6 Through all eternity to you a joyful song I'll raise; for oh, eternity's too short to utter all your praise. Scripture: Psalm 23:6 Languages: English Tune Title: MANOAH

If thou but suffer God to guide thee

Author: Catherine Winkworth; Georg Neumark Hymnal: The Hymnal #105 (1950) Meter: 9.8.9.8.8.8 Topics: Cheerfulness Lyrics: 1 If thou but suffer God to guide thee, And hope in Him through all thy ways, He'll give thee strength, whate'er betide thee, And bear thee through the evil days; Who trusts in God's unchanging love Builds on the rock that naught can move. 2 Only be still, and wait His leisure In cheerful hope, with heart content To take whate'er thy Father's pleasure And all-discerning love hath sent; Nor doubt our inmost wants are known To Him who chose us for His own. 3 Sing, pray, and swerve not from His ways, But do thine own part faithfully; Trust His rich promises of grace, So shall they be fulfilled in thee; God never yet forsook at need The soul that trusted Him indeed. Amen. Tune Title: NEUMARK

God, as We Rise to Leave

Author: Fred Kaan Hymnal: Voices United #417 (1996) Meter: 11.11.11.5 Topics: Cheerfulness First Line: God, as we rise to leave the shell of worship Lyrics: 1 God, as we rise to leave the shell of worship, called to the risk of unprotected living, willing to be at one with all your people, we ask for courage. 2 For all the strain with living interwoven, for the demands each day will make upon us, and for the love we owe the modern city, Lord, make us cheerful. 3 Give us an eye for openings to serve you; make us alert when calm is interrupted, ready and wise to use the unexpected; sharpen our insight. 4 Life from our life the blanket of convention; give us the nerve to lose ourselves to others; be with your church in death and resurrection, God of all ages.
