Builded On The Rock

March 14th, 2017

Lyrics and Music: Mrs. C. Rice

I builded on the Rock, on the Rock of God,
Builded on the Rock, Christ Jesus;
I dug down deep and builded on the Rock,
Builded on the Rock of God.

Refrain:
I hold not the Rock, but the Rock holds me,
The Rock holds me, the Rock holds me;
I rest on the Rock, and the Rock holds me,
Resting on the Rock of God.

Why should I fear when the winds sweep by?
Builded on the Rock, Christ Jesus;
Or shaken be when the waves roll high?
Builded on the Rock of God.

Hush, raging billows at His command,
Builded on the Rock, Christ Jesus;
Oh, peace be still ’neath His loving hand!
Builded on the Rock of God.

Praise God for our foundation sure!
Builded on the Rock, Christ Jesus;
No storms can harm our home secure,
Builded on the Rock of God.

God Bless Our Home

March 4th, 2017

Lyrics: T. Tow
Music: Irish Air

Many homes there were in all the Land of our Lord,
Only one did find grace in His eyes,
‘Twas the home where dear Mary and Martha did live,
Home for Brother Lazarus besides,
Though a humble abode, hidden on a hillside,
Bethany is known all o’er the world,
Blessed is the home where Jesus Christ would abide,
There the Banner of Love is unfurled.

Martha loves to serve Jesus with her busy hands,
She makes her home a banqueting hall,
She would feed our Lord and the disciples of His,
She surrenders all for the Lord’s sake.
Should our Lord come today, into your house to stay,
Will He find such a welcome so warm?
Blessed is the home where Jesus Christ would abide,
There the Banner of Love is unfurled.

Mary though uses not her hands to serve the Lord,
She gives Jesus her soul and her heart,
She sits list’ning to Jesus enrapt in His Word,
No one can take away her good part.
Should our Lord come today, into your house to stay,
Will He find such attention of heart?
Blessed is the home where Jesus Christ would abide,
There the Banner of Love is unfurled.

When dies Lazarus and there is no one to help,
Comes our Saviour promptly on the scene,
Jesus Christ is the Resurrection and the Life,
At His Word, the dead man lives again.
Comes our Saviour today, into your house to stay,
Bring to Him all your troubles and woes.
Blessed is the home where Jesus Christ now abides,
Where the Banner of Love is unfurled.

Wonderful Peace

January 15th, 2017

Lyrics: W. D. Cornell
Music: W. G. Cooper

Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial-like strains it unceasingly falls
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.

Refrain:
Peace! peace! wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above;
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray,
In fathomless billows of love.

What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace,
Buried deep in the heart of my soul;
So secure that no power can mine it away,
While the years of eternity roll.

I am resting tonight in this wonderful peace,
Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control;
For I’m kept from all danger by night and by day,
And His glory is flooding my soul.

And I know when I rise to that city of peace,
Where the Author of peace I shall see,
That one strain of the anthems the ransomed will sing,
In that heavenly kingdom shall be:

O soul, are you here without comfort or rest,
Walking down the rough pathway of time?
Make Jesus your friend ere the shadows grow dark;
O accept this sweet peace so sublime.

Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

December 31st, 2016

Lyrics: Henry Alford
Music: George J. Elvey

Come, ye thankful people, come,
raise the song of harvest home;
all is safely gathered in,
ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide
for our wants to be supplied;
come to God’s own temple, come,
raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field,
fruit as praise to God we yield;
wheat and tares together sown
are to joy or sorrow grown;
first the blade and then the ear,
then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we
wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come,
and shall take the harvest home;
from the field shall in that day
all offenses purge away,
giving angels charge at last
in the fire the tares to cast;
but the fruitful ears to store
in the garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come,
bring thy final harvest home;
gather thou thy people in,
free from sorrow, free from sin,
there, forever purified,
in thy presence to abide;
come, with all thine angels, come,
raise the glorious harvest home.

The Birthday Of A King

December 25th, 2016

Lyrics and Music: William H. Neidlinger

In the little village of Bethlehem,
There lay a Child one day,
And the sky was bright with a holy light
O’er the place where Jesus lay.

Refrain:
Alleluia! O how the angels sang.
Alleluia! How it rang!
And the sky was bright with a holy light,
‘Twas the birthday of a King.

‘Twas a humble birth-place, but O how much
God gave to us that day,
From the manger bed what a path has led,
What a perfect, holy way.

That Beautiful Name

December 20th, 2016

Lyrics: Jean Perry
Music: Mabel J. Camp

I know of a name, a beautiful name,
That angels brought down to earth;
They whispered it low, one night long ago,
To a maiden of lowly birth.

Refrain:
That beautiful name, that beautiful name,
From sin has power to free us!
That beautiful name, that wonderful name,
That matchless name is Jesus!

I know of a name, a beautiful name,
That unto a Babe was given.
The stars glittered bright throughout that glad night,
And angels praised God in Heav’n.

The One of that name, my Savior became,
My Savior of Calvary.
My sins nailed Him there; my burdens He bare.
He suffered all this for me.

I love that blest name, that wonderful name,
Made higher than all in Heaven.
‘Twas whispered, I know, in my heart long ago
To Jesus my life I’ve giv’n.

What Have We Done Today?

December 18th, 2016

Lyrics: Nixon D. Waterman
Music: Thomas Miles Bowdish

We shall do so much in the years to come,
But what have we done today?
We shall give our gold in a princely sum,
But what did we give today?
We shall lift the heart, and dry the tear,
We shall plant a hope in the place of fear,
We shall speak the words of love and cheer,
But what did we speak today?

We shall be so kind in the after-while,
But what have we been today?
We shall bring to each lonely life a smile,
But what have we brought today?
We shall give to truth a grander birth,
And to steadfast faith a deeper worth,
We shall feed the hungering souls of earth,
But whom have we fed today?

We shall reap such joys in the by and by,
But what have we sown today?
We shall build us mansions in the sky,
But what have we built today?
’Tis sweet in idle dreams to bask,
But here and now do we do our task?
Yes, this is the thing our souls must ask—
O, what have we done today?

Christians, Awake, Salute The Happy Morn

December 1st, 2016

If you are in Singapore, do join us for our Christmas Gospel Services and regular Sunday church services.

Lyrics: John Byrom
Music: John Wainright

Christians, awake, salute the happy morn
Whereon the Savior of the world was born.
Rise to adore the mystery of love
Which hosts of angels chanted from above,
With them the joyful tidings first begun
Of God incarnate and the virgin’s son.

Then to the watchful shepherds it was told,
Who heard th’angelic herald’s voice, “Behold,
I bring good tidings of a Savior’s birth
To you and all the nations of the earth;
This day hath God fulfilled His promised Word;
This day is born a Savior, Christ the Lord.”

Then may we hope, th’angelic hosts among,
To sing, redeemed, a glad triumphal song.
He that was born upon this joyful day
Around us all His glory shall display.
Saved by His love, incessantly we sing
Eternal praise to Heav’n’s almighty king.

The Great Physician

November 27th, 2016

Why did Jesus cure some people by using spit and touching them? For example in Mark 8:22-26, a blind man was cured by Jesus’ spit! Find out here.

Lyrics: William Hunter
Music: John H. Stockton

The great Physician now is near,
The sympathizing Jesus;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
Oh, hear the voice of Jesus.

Refrain:
Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest name on mortal tongue;
Sweetest carol ever sung,
Jesus, blessed Jesus.

Your many sins are all forgiv’n,
Oh, hear the voice of Jesus;
Go on your way in peace to heav’n,
And wear a crown with Jesus.

All glory to the dying Lamb!
I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessed Savior’s name,
I love the name of Jesus.

His name dispels my guilt and fear,
No other name but Jesus;
Oh, how my soul delights to hear
The charming name of Jesus.

And when to that bright world above,
We rise to see our Jesus,
We’ll sing around the throne of love
His name, the name of Jesus.

Lord, Here I Take My Cross

October 12th, 2016

Lyrics: S. H. Tow
Music: Antonin Dvorak

Lord, here I take my cross now to follow Thee,
Worldly gain, empty fame are but dross to me.
Men may sneer, men may jeer, pain may come or stay;
Naught can cause me to stray from the narrow way,
Thro’ His word, by His grace, I would faithful be;
Till at last I reach home, there’s a crown for me,
A bright crown for me, Yes, a crown for me.
