What A Friend We Have In Jesus (Converse, Organ, 3 Verses)

What A Friend We Have In Jesus Lyrics

What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield you; you will find a solace there.

Michael Row The Boat Ashore (Calypso, 7 Verses)

Michael Row The Boat Ashore : Lyrics

Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah

Sister help to trim the sail, hallelujah
Sister help to trim the sail, hallelujah

The river is deep and the river is wide, hallelujah
Green pastures on the other side, hallelujah

Jordan’s river is chilly and cold, hallelujah
Chills the body but not the soul, hallelujah

The river is deep and the river is wide, hallelujah
Milk and honey on the other side, hallelujah

The trumpets sound the jubilee, hallelujah
The trumpets sound for you and me, hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah

History

Created in 2007, this setting of Michael Row The Boat Ashore was the first hymn recorded by Richard Irwin, at the request of his father-in-law, a lay preacher. There was no organist available for the service he was to give at Ogbourne St George in Wiltshire, England and the only recordings available were an awful set using an electric organ. When the request was first made, Richard was unsure as the hymn was not a favourite of his, having been brought up with some dreadful settings. However, when he asked what style the recording should be in and the response was “Calypso” Richard became inspired and so began the recording of 100’s of hymns for churches with no live musicians. The first performance went well with even the Churchwarden dancing down the aisle!

 

 

O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing (Lyngham, Organ, 6 Verses)

O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing : Lyrics

1. O for a thousand tongues to sing
My dear Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and king,
The triumphs of his grace! (x3)

2. Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
‘Tis life, and health, and peace. (x3)

3. He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me. (x3)

4. He speaks; and, listening to his voice,
New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe. (x3)

5. Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
You blind, behold your Saviour come;
And leap, ye lame, for joy!

6. My gracious master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of thy name. (x3)

Oh Lead Us By The Hand Lord (Crossing Over Jordan, Blue Grass, 2 Verses)

Oh Lead Us By The Hand Lord : Lyrics

Oh lead us by the hand, Lord,
And take us to the river;
O-ho, help us, dearest Saviour,
Across to the other side.
Oh, we will walk beside you,
We’ll follow in your footsteps,
O-ho, right down to the river,
Then cross to the other side.
Yes, we’ll cross over Jordan,
Into the promised land;
Yes, we’ll cross over Jordan,
When our Saviour holds our hand.

Oh, lead us, dearest Jesus,
Without a tear or sigh;
To that promised Land of Glory,
And the sweet bye and bye.
Oh, we’ll cross over Jordan,
So we can praise our Lord;
O-ho, raise our hands in worship,
Reap the promise of His Word.
We’ll cross over Jordan,
Into the promised land;
Yes, we’ll cross over Jordan,
When our Saviour holds our hand.

Blessed Assurance ( 3 verses) – Organ

Blessed Assurance Lyrics

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of his Spirit, washed in His blood.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. Refrain

Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Saviour am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love. Refrain
