A Wonderful Savior Is Jesus My Lord

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
Where rivers of pleasure I see.
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life in the depths of His Love,
And covers me there with His Hand,
And covers me there with His Hand.

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
He taketh my burden away;
He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved,
He giveth me strength as my day.

When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful Love,
I’ll shout with the millions on high.

A Wife of Noble Character

A wife of noble character,
Is guerdon from The Hand Of God.
She works all day with eager hands,
Invests herself in every job.

She is not proud but full of love
And helps the hungry and the weak.
Her husband has full faith in her;
Of her, her children highly speak.

She speaks with wisdom, faith, and love,
And faithfulness receives reward
The gilt of beauty fades away,
But praised is she who fears The Lord.

A Wedding Took Place

A wedding took place in the village of Cana,
And Jesus, His mother, and followers all came.
The wine was exhausted, and Mary informed Him,
“They have no more wine, this would surely bring shame.”
“Dear woman,” He answered, “why do you involve Me?
My time to be recognized has not yet come.”
His mother then said to the servants there waiting,
“Whatever He tells you, now let it be done.”

Six water jars stood there for ritual washing,
Each holding then full twenty gallons or more.
He said to the servants, “Now fill them with water.”
They filled them brimful; there was no room for more.
Then Jesus instructed, “Take some to the master.”
The water had turned into wine none knew how.
On tasting, the master exclaimed in amazement,
“The choicest and best wine you have saved until now!”

When Jesus turned water to wine there in Cana,
This was the first miracle He’d ever done.
His glory He thus did reveal to the people,
And as a result, His disciples were won.
Lord, may I be like them, believing You fully.
And like the stone water jars may I ever be,
Filled up to the brim with Your transforming Spirit.
Reveal now Your glory to others through me.

A Voice of Praise

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong
They are week, but He is strong
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so

In the quiet of the hour
A small voice dares to be heard
And though the voice is soft, the tones are hushed
You know the King of kings is stirred

Chorus:
A voice of praise will be the songwe raise
A voice of praise to our King
A voice of praise lives on eternally
So let the heavens ring with a voice of praise

So hush, the angels listen in
As voices start to blend in love
For as the chorus grows, the praises swell
And spirits soar to heaven above

Repeat Chorus

La (la), la la la la la
La la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la, la la

For the joy to know He listens now
As praises to His feet now fly
Angel wings, they beat the time
As all creation starts to sing

Repeat Chorus (x2)

A voice of praise, a voice of praise, a voice of praise (praise, praise, praise, praise)

A Voice from On High

I hear a voice callin’
it must be our Lord (it must be our Lord)
Its coming from heaven on high.
I hear a voice callin’
I’ve gained a reward ( I’ve gained a reward)
for the land where we never shall die.

The saviour who di..ed, on cruel calvary
he shed his life blood that the world might be free.
So follow his footsteps, up the narrow way.
and be ready to meet him when calls on that day.

(to chorus)

The saviour has paid a great price for me
He gave his life on calvary.
so follow his footsteps,up the narrow way.
that’ll pay my debt on the great judgement day.

It Came Upon The Midnight Clear

It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold;
Peace on the earth, good will to men,
From Heavens all gracious King.
The world in solemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing.

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains,
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever over its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.

Yet with the woes of sin and strife
The world has suffered long;
Beneath the angel strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong;
And man, at war with man, hears not
The love-song which they bring;
O hush the noise, ye men of strife
And hear the angels sing.

And ye, beneath lifes crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow,
Look now! for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing.
O rest beside the weary road,
And hear the angels sing!

For lo! the days are hastening on,
By prophet-bards foretold,
When with the ever circling years
Comes round the age of gold;
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling,
And the whole world send back the song
Which now the angels sing.

A Virgin Most Pure

A Virgin most pure, as the prophets do tell,
Hath brought forth a baby, as it hath befell,
To be our Redeemer from death, hell, and sin,
Which Adam’s transgression hath wrapped us in:

Aye and therefore be merry,
rejoice and be you merry,
Set sorrows aside;
Christ Jesus our Saviour
was born on this tide.

At Bethlem in Jewry a city there was,
Where Joseph and Mary together did pass,
And there to be taxed with many one mo’,
For Caesar commanded the same should be so:

But when they had entered the city so fair,
A number of people so mighty was there,
That Joseph and Mary, whose substance was small,
Could find in the inn there no lodging at all:

Then they were constrained in a stable to lie,
Where horses and asses they used for to tie;
Their lodging so simple the took it no scorn,
But against the next morning our Saviour was born:

The King of all kings to this world being brought,
Small store of fine linen to wrap him was sought;
And when she had swaddled her young son so sweet,
Within an ox-manger she laid him to sleep:

Then God sent an angel from heaven so high,
To certain poor shepherds in fields where they lie,
And bade them no longer in sorrow to stay,
Because that our Saviour was born on this day:

Then presently after the shepherds did spy
A number of angels that stood in the sky;
They joyfully talked, and sweetly did sing,
To God be all glory, our heavenly King.

A Tiny Child

A promise spoken in the beginning
A prophet’s words in the night
An angel’s message to a young lady
A brilliant star in the sky
Chorus:
Who would be coming?
How were they knowing?
What’s it all about?
Why was He coming?
Where was He going?
When will they all find out?
A tiny child (tiny child)!
Almighty God (mighty God)!
A tiny child!
An almighty God!

A lonely village, a lowly carpenter
No proper shelter in sight
Their room a stable, manger a cradle
Angelic hosts on high

Repeat Chorus

A little baby boy, the hope of peace and joy
A tiny beacon of light
Divine creator becomes creation
His holy promise of life

(interlude)

Bridge:
He came to people (the Son of man), born of the people (became a man)
So that the people could be free (so that we could see)
He lived with people (He blessed their lives), He blessed the people (He broke through time)
The people nailed Him to a tree (they crucified Him)

A tiny child (a tiny little child)!
Almighty God (an awesome, an almighty God, tiny little baby)!
A tiny child!
An almighty God (almighty)!
A tiny child (a tiny child)!
Almighty God (an awesome, an almighty God)!
A tiny child (almighty God)!
Almighty, almighty God
