Hymns for tomorrow

The lockdown service link for this week will be available tomorrow morning, the hymns this week are as follows:


THE CHURCH’S ONE FOUNDATION

The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord;

she is his new creation by water and the Word:

from heav’n he came and sought her to be his holy bride;

with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.

‘Mid toil and tribulation, and tumult of her war,

she waits the consummation of peace forevermore;

till with the vision glorious her longing eyes are blest,

and the great church victorious shall be the church at rest.

Yet she on earth hath union with the God the Three in One,

and mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won:

O happy ones and holy! Lord, give us grace that we,

like them, the meek and lowly, on high may dwell with thee.

TO BE IN YOUR PRESENCE

To be in your presence, to sit at your feet,

Where your love surrounds me and makes me complete.

This is my desire, O Lord, this is my desire.

This is my desire, O Lord, this is my desire.

To rest in your presence, not rushing away,

To cherish each moment, here I would stay.

This is my desire, O Lord, this is my desire.

This is my desire, O Lord, this is my desire.


I HEARD THE VOICE OF JESUS SAY

I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Come unto me and rest;

Lay down, O weary one, lay down your head upon my breast.”

I came to Jesus as I was, So weary, worn, and sad;

I found him in a resting place, And he has made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Behold, I freely give

The living water, thirsty one, stoop down and drink and live.”

I came to Jesus, and I drank of that life-giving stream;

My thirst was quenched, my soul revived, and now I live in him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say, “I am this dark world’s light;

Look unto me; your morn shall rise, and all your day be bright.”

I looked to Jesus, and I found in him my star, my sun;

And in that light of life I’ll walk till traveling days are done
