Holy, Holy, Holy

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! Early in the morning our song

shall rise to Thee; Holy, holy, holy! Mer-ci-ful and mighty! God in

three Per-sons blessed Trin-i-ty!


Holy, holy, holy though the darkness hide Thee, Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see; Only Thou art holy there is none beside Thee, Per-fect in pow’r, in love and pu-ri-ty.


Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea! Holy, holy, holy! Mer-ci-ful and mighty! God in three Per-sons, blessed Trin-i-ty.    A-men



“Rock of Ages”

Rock of A-ges, cleft for me, Let me hide my-self in Thee; Let the

wa-ter and the blood, From Thy riv-en side which flowed, Be of sin

the dou-ble cure, Cleanse me from its guilt and pow’r.


While I draw this fleet-ing breath, When my eyes shall close in death, When I soar to worlds un-known, See Thee on Thy judg-ment throne, Rock of A-ges, cleft for me, Let me hide my-self in Thee.   A-men



“I Need Thee Every Hour”

I need Thee ev-‘ry hour, Most gra-cious Lord; No tender voice like Thine Can peace afford.   (Refrain)


I need Thee ev-‘ry hour, Teach me Thy will, And Thy rich prom-is-es   In me ful-fill.    (Refrain)


(Refrain): I need Thee, O I need Thee; Ev’-ry hour I need Thee!  O bless me now, my Sav-ior, I come to Thee.      A-men.
