Let All Things Now Living

(K. Davis/ trad. Welsh-Ash Grove)


Let all things now living

a song of thanksgiving

to God the Creator triumphantly raise

Who fashioned and made us, protected

and stayed us, Who guideth us on to

the end of our days.

His banners are o’er us,

His light goes before usa

pillar of fire shining forth in the night

Till shadows have vanished and

darkness is banished, As forward we

travel from light into light


His law He enforces,

the stars in their courses,

the sun in his orbit, obediently shine.

The hills and the mountains, the rivers

and fountains, the deeps of the ocean

proclaim Him divine.

We too, should be voicing

our love and rejoicing;

with glad adoration a song let us raise

Till all things now living

unite in thanksgiving to God in the

highest, hosanna and praise!

The Glory of the Cross (B. Kauflin)


What wisdom once devised the plan

Where all our sin and pride

Was placed upon the perfect Lamb

Who suffered, bled, and died?

The wisdom of a Sovereign God

Whose greatness will be shown

When those who crucified Your Son

Rejoice around Your throne


And, oh, the glory of the cross—

That You would send Your Son for us!

I gladly count my life as loss

That I might come to know

The glory of, the glory of the cross


What righteousness was there revealed

That sets the guilty free

That justifies ungodly men

And calls the filthy clean?

A righteousness that proved to all

Your justice has been met

And holy wrath is satisfied

Through one atoning death



What mercy now has been proclaimed

For those who would believe

A love incomprehensible

Our minds could not conceive?

A mercy that forgives my sin

Then makes me like Your Son

And now I’m loved forevermore

Because of what You’ve done

Like a River Glorious

(F. Havergal/J. Mountain)


Like a river glorious

is God’s perfect peace,

Over all victorious

in its bright increase;

Perfect, yet it floweth fuller ev’ry day,

Perfect, yet it groweth

deeper all the way.


Stayed upon Jehovah,

hearts are fully blest,

Finding, as he promised,

perfect peace and rest.


Hidden in the hollow

of his blessed hand,

Never foe can follow,

never traitor stand;

Not a surge of worry,

not a shade of care,

Not a blast of hurry

touch the spirit there.



Ev’ry joy or trial falleth from above,

Traced upon our dial

by the Sun of Love.

We may trust him fully all for us to do;

They who trust him wholly

find him wholly true.

Knowing You

(G. Kendrick)


All I once held dear,built my life upon,

All this world reveres and wars to own;

All I once thought gain

I have counted loss,

Spent and worthless now

compared to this.


Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You

There is no greater thing.

You’re my all, You’re my rest,

You’re my joy, my righteousness,

And I love You Lord.


Now my heart’s desire

is to know You more,

To be found in You

and known as Yours,

To possess by faith

what I could not earn

All surpassing gift of righteousness



Oh to know the power

of Your risen life,

And to know You in Your sufferings;

To become like You

in Your death, my Lord,

So with You to live and never die.
