Death shall not destroy my comfort,
Christ shall guide me through the gloom;
Down He’ll send some heavenly convoy,
To escort my spirit home.

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

Jordan’s stream shall not o’erflow me,
While my Savior’s by my side;
Canaan, Canaan lies before me; 
Soon I’ll cross the swelling tide. 

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

See the happy spirits waiting,
On the banks beyond the stream; 
Sweet responses still repeating,
“Jesus! Jesus!” is their theme. 

Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

Hail the day that sees Him rise, Alleluia!
To His throne above the skies, Alleluia!
Christ, the Lamb for sinners given, Alleluia!
Enters now the highest heaven, Alleluia!

There for Him the triumph waits, Alleluia!
Lift your heads, eternal gates, Alleluia!
He has conquered death and sin, Alleluia!
Take the King of glory in, Alleluia!

See, He lifts His hands above, Alleluia!
See, He shows the prints of love, Alleluia!
Hark, His gracious lips bestow, Alleluia!
Blessings on His church below, Alleluia!

Lord, beyond our mortal sight, Alleluia!
Raise our hearts to reach Thy light, Alleluia!
There Thy face unclouded see, Alleluia!
Find our heaven of heavens in Thee, Alleluia!


Musical offering for the fourth day of Christmas

December 28, 2018

Angels from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o’er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation’s story,
Now proclaim Messiah’s birth.
Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds in the field abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing;
Yonder shines the Infant Light.
Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Sages, leave your contemplations;
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations;
Ye have seen His natal star.
Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Saints before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear.
Though an Infant now we view Him,
He shall fill His Father’s throne;
Gather all the nations to Him,
Every knee shall then bow down.
Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Our bondage it shall end, by and by, by and by, 
Our bondage it shall end, by and by; 
From Egypt’s yoke set free; 
Hail the glorious jubilee, 
And to Canaan we’ll return, by and by, by and by, 
And to Canaan we’ll return, by and by.

Our deliverer He shall come, by and by, by and by, 
Our deliverer He shall come, by and by; 
And our sorrows have an end, 
With our threescore years and ten, 
And vast glory crown the day, by and by, by and by, 
And vast glory crown the day, by and by.

And when to Jordan’s floods, we are come, we are come, 
And when to Jordan’s floods, we are come; 
Jehovah rules the tide, 
And the waters he’ll divide, 
And the ransomed host shall shout, we are come, we are come, 
And the ransomed host shall shout, we are come.

Then with all the happy throng, we’ll rejoice, we’ll rejoice, 
Then with all the happy throng, we’ll rejoice; 
Shouting glory to our King, 
Till the vaults of heaven ring, 
And through all eternity we’ll rejoice, we’ll rejoice, 
And through all eternity we’ll rejoice.

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
Who unto the Savior for refuge have fled?

In every condition—in sickness, in health,
In poverty’s vale or abounding in wealth,
At home or abroad, on the land or the sea—
As thy days may demand, so thy succor shall be.

Fear not, I am with thee; oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid.
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.

It’s the birthday of slave-trader-turned-abolitionist John Newton (1725-1807). Newton wrote the words to hundreds of hymns, including “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken,” “May the Grace of Christ Our Savior,” “How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds,” and his greatest hit, “Amazing Grace.”
