No Coffee

“Faith of Our Fathers”

Faith of our fathers! living still  In spite of dungeon

fire and sword;  O how our hearts beat high with joy

When-e-er we hear that glorious word!  Faith of our

fathers holy faith!  We will be true to thee still death!


Faith of our fathers! we will love  Both friend and foe

in all our strife;  And preach thee too as love knows how,

By kindly words and virtuous life;  Faith of our fathers

holy faith!  We will be true to thee till death!



“Trust and Obey”

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, What a glory

He sheds on our way!  While we do His good will  He abides

with us still, And with all who will trust and obey.   (Refrain)


Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet, Or we’ll walk by

His side in the way;  What He says we will do, where He sends

we will go—Never fear, only trust and obey.    (Refrain)


(Refrain): Trust and obey, for there’s no     other way

To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.



“Blest Be the Tie That Binds”

Blest be the tie that binds  Our hearts in Christian love;

The fellowship of kindred minds Is like to that above. A-men
