Then Jesus Came

brown sand

“One sat alone beside the highway, begging,

His eyes were blind, the light he could not see;

He clutched his old rags, and shivered in the shadows,

Then Jesus came, and bade his darkness flee.

When Jesus comes, the tempter’s power is broken;

When Jesus comes, the tears are wiped away.

For He takes the gloom, and fills the life with glory,

And all is changed, when Jesus comes to stay.”

Hymn- “Then Jesus Came”, by Oswald Smith

 

Still

green pine trees near body of water

“Be still ,my soul; the LORD is on your side! Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;

Leave to your God to order and provide… In every change, He faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul; your Best, your heavenly Friend,

Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul; your God will undertake

To guide the future as He has the past.

Your hope,  your confidence let nothing shake;

All now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still, my soul; the waves and wind still know

His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.”

 

“Be Still My Soul”- hymn by J. Sibelius and K. Schlegel

Be Not Dismayed

Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you;

Beneath His wings of love abide, God will take care of you.

God will take care of you,

Through every day,

O’er all the way;

He will take care of you,

God will take care of you.

No matter what may be the test, God will take care of you;

Lean weary one upon His breast, God will take care of you.

 

Hymn- “God Will Take Care of You” by Walter and Civilla Martin

 

His Love Has No Limit

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater;

He sendeth more strength when the labors increase.

To added affliction, He addeth His mercy;

To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

His love has no limit; His grace has no measure;

His pow’r has no boundary known unto men.

For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,

He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,

When our strength has failed, ere the day is half done,

When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,

Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

Hymn by – Annie J.Flint and Huburt Mitchell

Surely Every Season

white printed paper with four white roses

“I was blind, now I’m seeing in color, I was dead, now I’m living forever.

I had failed, but You are my Redeemer, I’ve been blessed beyond all measure.

You were there in the valley of shadows, You were there in the depths of my sorrows

You’re my strength, my hope for tomorrow, I’ve been blessed beyond all measure.

I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing.

Letting go and trusting when I cannot see.

I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing.

Surely, every season You are good to me.”

“Counting Every Blessing”  – lyrics by Rend Collective

Take My Life

“Take my life, and let it be

Consecrated, LORD, to Thee.

Take my moments and my days;

Let them flow in ceaseless praise, Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my voice, and let me sing,

Always, only, for my King.

Take my lips, and let them be,

Filled with messages from Thee, Filled with messages from Thee.

Take my will, and make it Thine;

It shall no longer be mine.

Take my heart, it is Thine own;

It shall be Thy royal throne, It shall be Thy royal throne.

Take my love, my Lord, I pour,

At Thy feet it’s treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be,

Ever, only, all for Thee, Ever, only, all for Thee. -Amen

Hymn: “Take My Life and Let It Be” by- Malon, Havergal, and Mason
