My Heavenly Father Watches Over Me

Wednesday, June 24th, 2020

Lyrics: William C. Martin
Music: Charles H. Gabriel

I trust in God wherever I may be,
Upon the land, or on the rolling sea,
For come what may, from day to day,
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

I trust in God, I know He cares for me;
On mountain bleak or on the stormy sea;
Though billows roll, He keeps my soul;
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

He makes the rose an object of His care,
He guides the eagle through the pathless air,
And surely He remembers me;
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

I trust in God, for, in the lion’s den,
On battlefield, or in the prison pen,
Through praise or blame, through flood or flame,
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

The valley may be dark, the shadows deep,
But, oh, the Shepherd guards His lonely sheep;
And through the gloom He’ll lead me home,
My heav’nly Father watches over me.

God My Father Reigns

Monday, June 8th, 2020

This original hymn speak of God’s sovereignty in all our lives.

God My Father Reigns

Lyrics: J. Chng
Music: Deborah Mae

God my Father reigns supremely,
And He calls the stars by name;
So when tried, I’ll stay upon Him,
He knows each step I take.

Hold, fast, to His Word,
And His peace enfolds me;
For He holds my life securely,
Now and forevermore.

Though He slay me, yet I’ll trust Him
To work all things for my good.
When the flesh grows weak and fails me,
Still will I bless my Lord.

Hold, fast, to His Word,
And His peace enfolds me;
For He holds my life securely,
Now and forevermore.

O what blessed hope in trials,
When my eyes are on the cross,
From the dead Christ resurrected,
Conquered death evermore.

Final Chorus:
He arose, He arose, I rejoice greatly,
Though in sorrow with tears I cried;
With a song I’ll praise His name,
Come before His throne,
My God will be magnified;
God will be glorified.

Yet I Will Rejoice – Full Score

Lyrics: J. Chng (Hab 3:17-19)
Music: William Croft

Although the fig tree shall not bloom,
Nor fruit be in the vines;
The labour of the olive fail,
Yet I’ll rejoice in God.

And though the fields shall yield no meat;
The flock cut from the fold,
E’en there no herd be in the stalls,
Yet I’ll rejoice in God.

Yes, in the LORD I find my joy,
I will rejoice in God.
He who is my salvation, strength,
Who’ll lift my feet once more.

Holy Spirit While We Bend

Saturday, June 6th, 2020

The link above is a voice and acoustic piano version (sung by Biboy).

Lyrics: G. W. Crofts
Music: John P. Hillis

Holy Spirit, while we bend,
Graciously on us descend;
Like a gentle dove appear
To each waiting spirit here.

Holy Spirit, come within,
Crucify this heart of sin,
Let it die upon the cross
With its soul defiling dross.

Holy Spirit, life provide
For the heart thus crucified,
Let it break the bonds of death
By the power of Thy breath.

Holy Spirit, I would be
Filled, yea, wholly filled by Thee;
Come with overflowing love,
Let me Thy sweet presence prove.

Holy Spirit, heav’n on earth,
Seal me with celestial birth;
Bear me on Thy wings of love
To my blissful home above.
