“Look, Ye Saints, the Sight Is Glorious”
by Thomas Kelly, 1769-1854

1. Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious;
See the Man of Sorrows now!
From the fight returned victorious,
Every knee to Him shall bow.
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Crowns become the Victor’s brow.

2. Crown the Savior! Angels, crown Him!
Rich the trophies Jesus brings;
On the seat of power enthrone Him
While the vault of heaven rings.
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Crown the Savior King of kings.

3. Sinners in derision crowned Him,
Mocking thus the Savior’s claim;
Saints and angels crowd around Him,
Own His title, praise His name.
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Spread abroad the Victor’s fame!

4. Hark, those bursts of acclamation!
Hark, those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station;
Oh, what joy the sight affords!
Crown Him! Crown Him!
King of kings and Lord of lords!

I STAND IN AWE 
You are beautiful beyond description

Too marvelous for words
Too wonderful for comprehension
Like nothing ever seen or heard
Who can grasp Your infinite wisdom
Who can fathom the depths of Your love
You are beautiful beyond description
Majesty enthroned above

And I stand I stand in awe of You

I stand I stand in awe of You

Holy God to whom all praise is due

I stand in awe of You

You are beautiful beyond description

Yet God crushed You for my sin
In agony and deep affliction
Cut off that I might enter in
Who can grasp such tender compassion
Who can fathom this mercy so free
You are beautiful beyond description
Lamb of God who died for me

(Mark Altrogge)

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here,
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirit by thine advent here:
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
And order all things, far and nigh;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And cause us in her ways to go.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
O come, Desire of nations, bind
All peoples in one heart and mind;
Bid envy, strife and quarrels cease,
Fill all the world with heaven’s peace.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

Come, All Christians, Be Committed
Come, all Christians, be committed
To the service of the Lord.
Make your lives for Him more fitted,
Tune your hearts with one accord.
Come into His courts with gladness,
Each his sacred vows renew,
Turn away from sin and sadness,
Be transformed with life anew.
Of your time and talents give ye,
They are gifts from God above,
To be used by Christians freely
To proclaim His wondrous love.
Come again to serve the Savior,
Tithes and off’rings with you bring.
In your work with Him find favor,
And with joy His praises sing.
God’s command to love each other
Is required of every man.
Showing mercy to a brother
Mirrors His redemptive plan.
In compassion He has given
Of His love that is divine;
On the cross sins were forgiven;
Joy and peace are fully thine.
Come in praise and adoration,
All who on Christ’s name believe.
Worship Him with consecration,
Grace and love will you receive.
For His grace give Him the glory,
For the Spirit and the Word,
And repeat the gospel story
Till all men His name have heard.

O, How I Love Jesus

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music to my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus–
because He first loved me!
It tells me of a Savior’s love,
who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner’s perfect plea.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus–
because He first loved me!
It tells me what my Father hath
In store for ev’ry day,
And, tho I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus–
because He first loved me!

It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who ineach sorrow bears a part
That none can bear below.

O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus,
O, how I love Jesus–
because He first loved me!

Safely Through Another Week

Safely through another week, God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek, Waiting in His courts today:
Day of all the week the best, Emblem of eternal rest;
Day of all the week the best, Emblem of eternal rest.

While we pray for pardoning grace, Thro’ the dear Redeemer’s Name,
Show Thy reconciled face, Take away our sin and shame;
From our worldly cares set us free, May we rest this day in Thee;
From our worldly cares set us free, May we rest this day in Thee.

Here we come Thy Name to praise, may we feel Thy presence near:
May Thy glory meet our eyes, While we in Thy house appear:
Here afford us, Lord, a taste Of our everlasting feast;
Here afford us, Lord, a taste Of our everlasting feast.

May Thy gospel’s joyful sound Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
Make the fruits of gace abound, Bring relief for all complaints:
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove, till we join the Church above;
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove, till we join the church above.

(John Newton)

Sunday Hymn (on Monday)

I Am Not Skilled to Understand

I am not skilled to understand
What God hath willed, what God hath planned;
I only know that at His right hand
Is One Who is my Savior!

I take Him at His word indeed;
“Christ died for sinners”—this I read;
For in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior!

That He should leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange? So once did I,
Before I knew my Savior!

And oh, that He fulfilled may see
The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be,
As I with my dear Savior!

Yea, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this Spring;
That He Who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior!
