Accepted

As I come, O Savior, pleading
That my soul Thou should’st restore,
All I have I now am bringing,
Thine to be forevermore.

Refrain:
Thou hast said Thou wouldst receive me,
Nor my earnest plea deny;
Now I know I am accepted,
On Thy promise I rely.

I have done what Thou hast taught me,
From the world have turned aside;
Let me be a holy temple,
Where Thy presence may abide.

I am hoping in Thy mercy,
Not in that which I can do;
And I know Thou failest never,
To my soul Thou wilt be true.

Not a thing am I withholding,
All is on the altar laid;
Now I claim Thy promise boldly,
And no longer am afraid.

Accept One Another

When you are going to judge
You need to take a second look
Not at your Brother’s speck
But the warning that’s in The Book
‘Cause who alone can judge
Except The One who knows our mind?
He Knows the inner man
And difficulties we may find

So often we condemn (Condemn)
And our minds are never in gear (Minds are never in gear)
Our feelings then are led (Are led)
By suspicious, crippling fear (Suspicious, crippling fear)
To love our brothers now (Now)
We’ve got to use our Master’s eyes (Eyes)
So we will not condemn
The result will be a surprise when we…

Chorus:
Accept one another without judging your Brother
The Lord has been good to you
Accept one another without judging your Brother
It’s the Godly thing you ought to do
Accept one another without judging your Brother
There’s no need to cause a fight
Accept one another without judging your Brother
It’s the Godly way of living right

What do you want yourself (What do you want?)
When it comes right down to a choice?
Is judgement what you want (What you want)
Or a kind and merciful Voice (Merciful Voice)
To tell you that They care
And are overlooking the bad?
They know your faults so well
But are accepting you instead

And now we leave with your choice
Won’t you tell me what’ll you do? (What’ll you do?)
The measures that you use
Is the measure that’s used for you
So when you’re prone to judge
Won’t you think of this simple song
Before you make mistakes
By judging and treating them wrong, instead…

Repeat Chorus

When you think of what He’s done
Given up His only Son
Livin’ in a world of hate
How can you retaliate?
Knowing what He’s done for me
Following His legacy
I’m gonna rise above
Accepting those that He has loved

Repeat Chorus

It’s the Godly way of living right
It’s the Godly way of living right

Abundant Life

Under the burdens of guilt and care
Many a Spirit is grieving,
Who in The Joy Of The Lord might share,
Life everlasting receiving.

Refrain:
Life, life, eternal life!
Jesus alone is The Giver;
Life, life, abundant life!
Glory to Jesus forever!!

Bearing our burden of guilt,
there came One Who Is strong to Deliver;
Bringing to men, through His Wondrous Name,
Life “more abundant” than ever.

Burdened one, why will you longer bear
Sorrows from which He releases?
Open your heart and, rejoicing,
share Life “more abundant” in Jesus!

Leaving the mountain, the streamlet grows,
Flooding the vale with a river;
So, from the hill of The Cross there flows
Life “more abundant” for ever.

O for the floods on the thirsty land!
O for a mighty revival!
O for a sanctified, fearless band,
Ready to hail its arrival!

Absent From The Flesh

Absent from flesh! O blissful thought!
What unknown joys this moment brings!
Freed from the mischiefs sin has brought,
From pains, and fears, and all their springs.

Absent from flesh! Illustrious day!
Surprising scene! Triumphant stroke
That rends the prison of my clay;
And I can feel my fetters broke.

Absent from flesh! Then rise, my soul,
Where feet nor wings could never climb,
Beyond the heavens, where planets roll,
Measuring the cares and joys of time.

I go where God and glory shine,
His Presence makes eternal day:
My all that’s mortal I resign,
For angels wait and point my way.

Abraham’s Faith and Our Salvation

The Lord woke Abraham one night,
And told the man to take
The promised Isaac his one son,
To kill for GOD’s great sake.

Then Abraham his son did take;
The boy was unaware,
He calmly walked the mountain steep;
His son did not despair.

But as he raised the deadly knife
His only son to slay,
“Don’t kill the boy!” The Lord called down
In bright and shining ray.

Christ JESUS offered up himself
Like Isaac Abr’ms son;
And shining forth He rose again,
And conquered all our sins.

Above Yon Clear Blue Sky

Above yon clear blue sky,
Beyond our feeble sight,
The GOD Of Glory dwells on high
In everlasting Light.
Around His glorious throne
The holy angels stand;
In songs of praise their King they own,
Or fly at His command.

And we may praise Him, too,
And serve Him here below;
He stoops to mark what children do,
Their inmost thoughts to know;
And though He reigns above,
Where angels ceaseless praise,
He will accept our humble Love,
And lead us in His ways.

O may we humbly seek
To do His Holy Will,
And try, with thankful hearts and meek,
To sing His praises still;
And then for JESUS’ sake,
Who came for us to die,
Our happy Spirits He will take
To praise Him in the sky.

Above Thine Own Ambitions Here

Above thine own ambitions here
Another Voice is sounding clear;
It is The Call Of God to thee:
O leave thy all, and follow Me!

Refrain:
Go thro’ with God, thy vows to pay,
Thy life upon the altar lay;
The Holy Ghost will do the rest,
And bring to thee God’s very best!

The Call Of God, it is so clear,
But friendships call, and home is dear;
Ah, lonely was the path He trod,
Then wilt thou not go on with God?

So soon eternal morn shall dawn,
How fast the night is hast’ning on;
So soon His lovely Face to see,
How sad to empty-handed be!

The price is high, severe the test
For those who would enjoy God’s best;
Surrender all, then take the road
With those who will go thro’ with God.

Above The Trembling Elements

Above the trembling elements,
Above life’s restless sea,
Dear Savior, lift my spirit up,
O lift me up to Thee!

Great calmness there, sweet patience, too,
Upon Thy face I see;
I would be calm and patient, Lord,
O lift me up to Thee!

I am not weary of Thy work,
From earth I would not flee;
But while I walk and while I serve,
O lift me up to Thee!

That I may bless my tender friends,
And those who love not me;
But while I walk and while I serve,
O lift me up to Thee!

Whatever falls of good or ill,
Thy hand, Thy care I see,
And while these varied dealings pass,
O lift me up to Thee!

And when my eyes close for the last,
Still this my prayer shall be:
Dear Savior, lift my spirit up,
And lift me up to Thee!

Above The Starry Spheres

Above the starry spheres,
To where He was before,
Christ had gone up, The Father’s Gift
Upon the Church to pour.

At length had fully come,
On mystic circle borne
Of seven times seven revolving days,
The Pentecostal morn.

When, as the Apostles knelt
At the third hour in prayer,
A sudden rushing sound proclaimed
That God Himself was there.

Forthwith a tongue of fire
Is seen on every brow,
Each heart receives The Father’s Light,
The Word’s enkindling Glow.

The Holy Ghost on all
Is mightily outpoured,
Who straight in divers tongues declare
The wonders of The Lord.

While strangers of all climes
Flock round from far and near,
And their own tongue, wherever born,
All with amazement hear.

But Judah, faithless still,
Denies The Hand divine;
And, mocking, jeers the Saints of Christ
As full of new made wine.

Till Peter, in the midst,
By Joel’s ancient word,
Rebukes their unbelief, and wins
Three thousand to The Lord.

The Father and The Son
And Spirit we adore,
O may The Spirit’s Gifts be poured
On us forevermore.

Above the Hills of Time

Above the hills of time the cross is gleaming,
Fair as the sun when night has turned to day;
And from it Love’s Pure Light is richly streaming,
To cleanse the heart and banish sin away.
To this dear cross the eyes of men are turning,
Today as in the ages lost to sight;
And for Thee, O Christ, men’s hearts are yearning,
As shipwrecked seamen yearn for morning light.

The cross, O Christ, Thy wondrous love revealing,
Awakes our hearts as with the light of morn,
And pardon o’er our sinful spirits stealing,
Tells us that we, in Thee, have been reborn.
Like echoes to sweet temple bells replying
Our hearts, O Lord, make answer to Thy love;
And we will love Thee with a love undying,
Till we are gathered to Thy home above.
