The Cross before to guide me. Where streams of living water flow My ransomed soul H e leadeth, And, where the verdant pastures grow, With food celestial feedeth. Perverse and foolish oft I strayed, But yet in love He sought m e, And on His shoulder gently laid, And home, r ejoic ing, brought me. Thou spread'st a Table in m y sight; Thy unction grace bestoweth; And oh, what transport of delight From Thy pure Chalice floweth! And so through au the length of days Thy goodness faileth never; Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise Within Thy house forever.

'' And Can It Be'' And can it be that I should gain An interest in the Saviour's blood? Died He for me, who caused His pain? For me, who Him to death pursued? Amazing love! how can it be That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me! 'Tis mystery all! The Immortal dies : Who can explore His strange design? In vain the first-born seraph tries To sound the depths of love divine. 'Tis mercy all! let earth adore, Let angel minds inquire no more. He left His Father's throne above So free, so infinite His grace -Emptied Himself of all but love, And bled for Adam's helpless race. 'Tis mercy all, immense and free; For, 0 my God, it found out me. No condemnation now I dread; Jesus, and all in Him, is mine! Alive in Him, my living Head, And clothed in righteousness divine, Bold I approach the eternal throne, And claim the crown, through Christ, my own.

COMMUNION HYMNS ..... .................................. ........................................... ''How Great Thou Art'' HOW GREAT THOU ART 0 Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder, Consider all the worlds Thy hand has made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy pow'r throughout the universe displayed. Chorus: "Lead Me, Guide Me" Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee: How great Thou art, how great Thou art. Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee: How great Thou art, how great Thou art. When thro' the woods and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees; When I look down from loftly mountain grandeur, And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze; And when I think that God, his Son not sparing, Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin. When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart; Then I shall bow in humble adoration, And there proclaim; my God, how great Thou art. LEAD ME, GUIDE ME I am weak and I need Thy strength and pow'r. To help me over my weakest hour. Let me through the darkness Thy face to see. Lead me, Oh Lord, lead me. Chorus: Lead me, guide me along the way, For if You lead me, I cannot stray, Lord, let me walk each day with Thee, Lead me, Oh Lord, lead me. Help me tread in the paths of righteousness, Be my Aid when Satan and sin oppress, I am putting all of my trust in Thee, Lead me, Oh Lord, lead me. I am lost, if You take Your Hand from me, I am blind without Thy light to see, Lord just always let me Thy servant be, Lead me, Oh Lord, lead me.

RECESSIONAL HYMN ................................................................................................. ''It Is Finished'' There's a line that's been drawn through the ages On that line stands the old rugged cross On that cross a battle is raging For the gain of man's soul or his loss. Chorus: It is finished, the battle is over It is finished, there'll be no more war It is finished, the end of the conflict It is finished and Jesus is Lord. On one side march the forces of evil All the demons and devils of hell On the other the angels of glory And they meet on Golgotha's hill. The earth shakes with force of the conflict And the sun refuses to shine For there hangs God's Son in the balance And then through the darkness He cries. GRAVESIDE HYMN .................................................................................................. ''It's Alright Now'' IT'S ALRIGHT NOW "When Peace Like A River'' "Farther Along" "The Last Mile Of The Way" There was a time I travelled a lonely sinful road, Beneath a heavy burden bending low; But now all things are diff'rent, for Jesus took my load, It's alright now, I'm His I know. Chorus: It's alright now, for I am in my Saviour's care, It's alright now, my Saviour hears and answers prayer; He'll walk beside me 'til I climb the heav'nly stair, And ev'rything is alright now. A-down a lonely pathway without a friend to guide, I walked in sin and sorrow all alone; 'Til Jesus came and found me, and drew me to His side, It's alright now, for I'm His own. No more in sin I wander, no more in darkness roam, The Lord has placed my feet on higher ground; Each day new heights I'm gaining, my soul is nearing home, It's alright now, I'm heaven bound.

PAGE 15

! WHEN PEACE LIKE A RIVER When peace, like a river, attendeth my way When sorrows, like sea billows, roll; Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, "It is well, it is well with my soul." Chorus: It is well ... with my soul ... It is well, it is well with my soul. If Satan should buffet, if trials should come, Let this blest assurance control, That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate, And hath shed His own blood for my soul. My sin Oh the bliss of this glorious thoughtMy sin -not in part, but the whole, Is nail'd to His Cross, and I bear it no more; Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, 0 my soul! For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to livel If Jordan above me shall roll, No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life, Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul. But Lord, 'tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait, The sky, not the grave, is our goal; Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord! Blessed hope[ blessed rest of my soul!

PAGE 16

FARTHER ALONG Tempted and tried, we're oft made to wonder Why it should be thus all the day long, While there are others living about us, Never molested tho' in the wrong. Chorus: Farther along, we'll know all about it, Farther along, we'll understand why, Cheer up my brother, live in the sunshine, We'll understand it all by and by. When death has come and taken our loved ones It leaves our homes so lonely and drear; Then do we wonder why others prosper, Living so wicked year after year. "Faithful to death" said our loving Master, A few more days to labour and wait; Toils of the road will then seem as nothing, As we sweep thru the beautiful gate. When we see Jesus coming in glory, When He comes from His home in the sky; Then we shall meet Him in that bright mansion, We'll understand it all by and by.

PAGE 17

THE LAST MILE OF THE WAY If I walk in the pathway of duty, If I work till the close of the day; I shall see the great King in His beauty When I've gone the last mile of the way. Chorus: When I've gone the last mile of the way, I will rest at the close of the day, And I know there are joys that await me When I've gone the last mile of the way. If for Christ I proclaim the glad story, If I seek for His sheep gone astray; I am sure He will show me His glory When I've gone the last mile of the way. Here the dearest of ties we must sever, Tears of sorrow are seen ev'ry day ; But no sickness, no sighing forever When I've gone the last mile of the way. And if here I have earnestly striven And have tried all His will to obey; 'Twill enhance all the rapture of heaven When I've gone the last mile of the way.
