“Come, Thou Almighty King”


Come, Thou Al-might-y King, Help us thy name to sing, Help us to praise;  Fa-ther! All glo-ri-ous, O’er all vic-to-ri-ous, Come, and reign o-ver us, An-cient of Days.


To Thee, great One in Three, E-ter-nal prais-es be, Hence ev-er-more; Thy sov-’reign maj-es-ty May we in glo-ry see, And to e-ter-ni-ty Love and a-dore.    A-men.



My Faith Looks Up to Thee”


My faith looks up to thee, Thou Lamb of Cal-va-ry, Sav-ior di-vine!  Now hear me while I pray, Take all my guilt a-way, O let me from this day Be whol-ly Thine!


May Thy rich grace im-part Strength to my faint-ing heart, My zeal in-spire;  As Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee Pure, warm and change-less be, A liv-ing fire!     A-men.



“In His Time”


In His time (in His time), in His time (in His time); He makes all things beau-ti-ful in His time (in His time).  Lord, please show me ev-‘ry day As You’re teach-ing me Your way, That You do just what You say in Your time (in Your time).


In Your time (in Your time), in Your time (in Your time); You make all things beau-ti-ful in Your time (in Your time).  Lord, my life to You I bring; May each song I have to sing Be to You a love-ly thing in Your time (in Your time).
