No Coffee Hour


“Fairest Lord Jesus”

Fair-est Lord Je-sus, Ruler of all nature, O Thou of God and man the Son:  Thee will I cher-ish, Thee will I hon-or, Thou my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.


Beau-ti-ful Savior!  Lord of the na-tions!  Son of God and Son of Man!  Glo-ry and hon-or, praise, ad-o-ra-tion, Now and for-ev-er-more be Thine!     A-men


“What a Friend We Have in Jesus”

What a Friend we have in Je-sus, All our sins and griefs to bear!  What a priv-i-lege to car-ry Ev-ery-thing to God in prayer!  O what peace we of-ten for-feit, O what need-less pain we bear, All be-cause we do not car-ry Ev-ery-thing to God in prayer!


Are we weak and heav-y la-den, Cum-bered with a load of care? 

Pre-cious Sav-ior, still our Ref-uge--- Take it to the Lord in prayer. 

Do thy friends de-spise, for-sake thee?  Take it to the Lord in prayer;  In His arms He’ll take and shield thee, Thou wilt find a sol-ace there.


“Amazine Grace”

A-maz-ing grace! how sweet the sound—That saved a wretch like me!  I once was lost but now am found, Was blind but now I see.


T’was grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears

re-lieved;  How pre-cious did that grace ap-pear  The hour I first



When we’ve been there ten thou-sand years, Bright shin-ing as the sun, We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise Than when we’d first begun.
