And nailed him to the cross.
They crucified my Savior
And nailed him to the cross.
And the Lord will bear my spirit home.

He 'rose, he 'rose, he 'rose from the dead,
He 'rose, he 'rose, he 'rose from the dead.
He 'rose, he 'rose, he 'rose from the dead,
And the Lord shall bear my spirit home.

Joseph begged his body
And laid it in the tomb.
Joseph begged his body
And laid it in the tomb.
And the Lord will bear my spirit home. [Refrain]

A-looking for my Lord.
Mary, she came running,
A-looking for my Lord.
Mary, she came running,
A-looking for my Lord.
And the Lord will bear my spirit home. [Refrain]

And rolled the stone away.

LEVAS2 (L096) He is King of Kings

Piano    PARTS


Refrain:
He is King of kings,
He is Lord of Lords;
Jesus Christ, the first and last
no man works like Him.

1 He built his throne up in the air
no man works like Him;
And called the saints from ev’erwhere
no man works like Him. [Refrain]

2 I was but young when I begun
no man works like Him;
But now my race is almost won
no man works like Him. [Refrain]

LEVAS2 (L099) On Christ the solid rock

Piano    PARTS

1 My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

Refrain:
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

2 When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In ev’ry high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]

3 His oath, His covenant and blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]

4 When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]

LEVAS2 (L203) There Is a Balm in Gilead

Piano    Parts    Soprano    Alto    Tenor    Bass

Refrain:
There is a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead
to heal the sin-sick soul.
1 Sometimes I feel discouraged,
And think my work’s in vain,
But then the holy spirit
Revives my soul again. [Refrain]
2 If you cannot preach like Peter,
If you cannot preach like Paul,
You can tell the love of Jesus,
And say He died for all. [Refrain]
3 Don’t ever be discouraged
For Jesus is your friend,
And if you lack for knowledge,
He’ll ne’er refuse to lend. [Refrain]

LEVAS2 (207) We'll understand it better by and by

Piano    PARTS
1 We are often tossed and driv’n
on the restless sea of time,
Somber skies and howling tempest
oft succeed a bright sunshine;
In that land of perfect day,
when the mists have rolled away,
We will understand it better
by and by, by and by.
Refrain:
By and by when the morning comes,
When the saints of God are gathered home,
We’ll tell the story how we’re overcome;
For we’ll understand it by and by, by and by.
2 We are often destitute
of the things that life demands,
Want of food and want of shelter,
thirsty hills and barren lands;
We are trusting in the Lord,
and according to His word,
We will understand it better
by and by, by and by. [Refrain]
3 Trials dark on ev’ry hand,
and we cannot understand,
All the ways that God would lead us
to that blessed promised land;
But He guides us with His eye
and we’ll follow till we die.
For we’ll understand it better
by and by, by and by. Refrain
4 Temptations, hidden snares
often take us unawares,
And our hearts are made to bleed
for many a thoughtless word or deed;
And we wonder why the test
when we try to do our best,
But we’ll understand it better
by and by, by and by. [Refrain]

LEVAS2 - Hymn 109 What a friend we have in Jesus

Piano     Parts    Soprano    Alto    Tenor    Bass
1 What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Ev’rything to God in prayer!
2 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 ev’ry weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
3 Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge,
Take it to the Lord in Prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in Prayer.
In his arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.


WLP (763): As we gather at Your table


Piano    Parts
1 As we gather at your table,
as we listen to your Word,
help us know, O God, your presence;
let our hearts and minds be stirred.
Nourish us with sacred story
till we claim it as our own;
teach us through this holy banquet
how to make Love’s vict’ry known.
2 Turn our worship into witness
in the sacrament of life;
send us forth to love and serve you,
bringing peace where there is strife.
Give us, Christ, your great compassion
to forgive as you forgave;
may we still behold your image
in the world you died to save.
3 Gracious Spirit, help us summon
other guests to share that Feast
where triumphant Love will welcome
those who had been last and least.
There no more will envy blind us
nor will pride our peace destroy,
as we join with saints and angels
to repeat the sounding joy.

LEVAS2 (L106)   Take my hand, precious Lord

Piano    PARTS

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on
Let me stand
I'm tired, I am weak I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When my way grows drear precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry
Hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears and the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet
Hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on
Let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Join in a song with sweet accord,

And thus surround the throne,
And thus surround the throne.

We’re marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We’re marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.

Who never knew our God;
But children of the heav’nly King,
But children of the heav’nly King,
May speak their joys abroad,
May speak their joys abroad. (refrain)

A thousand sacred sweets
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Or walk the golden streets,
Or walk the golden streets. (refrain)

And ev’ry tear be dry;
We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground,
We’re marching thro’ Immanuel’s ground,
To fairer worlds on high,
To fairer worlds on high. (refrain)

Piano    Parts    Soprano    Alto    Tenor    Bass

1 I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
Of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story,
Because I know it’s true;
It satisfies my longings
As nothing else would do.
Refrain:
I love to tell the story;
Twill be my theme in glory.
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love.
2 I love to tell the story,
For those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting
To hear it, like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory,
I sing the new, new song,
’Twill be the old, old story
That I have loved so long. (refrain)



LEVAS2 (L095) O, how I love Jesus



1 There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in mine ear,
The sweetest name on earth.
Refrain:
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!
2 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. [Refrain]
3 It tells me what my Father hath
In store for ev’ry day,
And though I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way. [Refrain]
4 It tells of one whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part,
That none can bear below. [Refrain]

LEVAS2 (L101) Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling

Calling for you and for me;
See, on the portals He’s waiting and watching,
Watching for you and for me.
Refrain:
Come home,(Come home,) come home, (come home,)
Ye who are weary, come home!
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!
2 Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me? (refrain)
3 Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing,
Passing for you and for me;
Shadows are gathering, death beds are coming,
Coming for you and for me. [Refrain]
4 Oh! For the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me;
Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me. [Refrain]


LEVAS2 - Hymn 1 Lift Every Voice and Sing

Piano    Parts    Soprano    Alto    Tenor    Bass

1 Lift ev’ry voice and sing,
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the list’ning skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us;
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun
Of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.
2 Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chast’ning rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over away that with tears has been watered;
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered;
Out from the gloomy past,
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.
3 God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who hast brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who hast by thy might,
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met thee;
Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world, we forget thee,
Shadowed beneath Thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God, true to our native land.

1 God of grace and God of glory,
on thy people pour thy power;
crown thine ancient Church’s story;
bring her bud to glorious flower.

Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,

for the facing of this hour,

for the facing of this hour.



2 Lo! the hosts of evil round us

scorn thy Christ, assail his ways!
From the fears that long have bound us
free our hearts to faith and praise:
grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
for the living of these days,
for the living of these days.

3 Cure thy children’s warring madness,
bend our pride to thy control;
shame our wanton, selfish gladness,
rich in things and poor in soul.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
lest we miss thy kingdom’s goal,
lest we miss thy kingdom’s goal.

4 Save us from weak resignation
to the evils we deplore;
let the gift of thy salvation
be our glory evermore.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
serving thee whom we adore,
serving thee whom we adore.
