Hymn- How Great Thou Art

 

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,

Consider all the works Thy hands have made;

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

 

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,

How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,

How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

 

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.

When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur

And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

 

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;

Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;

That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,

He bled and died to take away my sin.

 

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,

And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.

Then shall I bow, in humble adoration,

And then proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"

Hymn- It is Well

           When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,

 When sorrows like sea billows roll;

 Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,

 It is well, it is well, with my soul.

 

It is well, with my soul,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.

 

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

Let this blest assurance control,

That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

 

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

 My sin, not in part but the whole,

 Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

 Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

 

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,

 The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;

 The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,

 Even so, it is well with my soul.

 

Scripture

Psalm 137:1–6

 

          [1] By the waters of Babylon,

                   there we sat down and wept,

                   when we remembered Zion.

         [2] On the willows there

                   we hung up our lyres.

          [3] For there our captors

                   required of us songs,

          and our tormentors, mirth, saying,

                   “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”

          [4] How shall we sing the LORD's song

                   in a foreign land?

          [5] If I forget you, O Jerusalem,

                   let my right hand forget its skill!

          [6] Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth,

                   if I do not remember you,

          if I do not set Jerusalem

                   above my highest joy! (ESV)
