94. Wonderful Redeemer

Verse 1:
Wonderful Deliv'rer, blessed be His name;
That He might redeem us, sent from heav'n He came;
Wonderful Redeemer, He doth life bestow
Thro' a fount that cleanses whiter than the snow.

Refrain:
Whit-------------er than the snow,
(Whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow,)
Whit-------------er than the snow,
(Whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow,)
Savior, Thou the debt hast paid,
By Thy cleansing blood I'm made
Whit-------------er than the snow, whiter than the snow.
(Whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow.)

Verse 2:
Oh, what boundless mercy, oh, what pardon flows
Down along the ages, healing all our woes;
Love of Christ abounding, Grace divine, we know
There's a fount that cleanses whiter than the snow.

Verse 3:
We are coming, Savior, to Thy cross we cling;
Lo! our hands are empty, we can nothing bring;
Wash us blest Redeemer, let the blood o'erflow
From the fount that cleanses whiter than the snow.

Verse 4:
Jesus, dear Redeemer, Savior of my soul,
I will sing Thy praises while the ages roll,
Highest bliss of heaven mortal e'er can know,
Wash'd and cleans'd forever whiter than the snow.

93. It Will Never Grow Old

Verse 1:
Oh, have you not heard of the country above,
The name of its King and His infinite love?
His children are deathless and happy, I'm told;
Oh, will it abide--will we never grow old?

Refrain:
'Twill always be new, it will never decay;
No night ever comes, it will always be day;
It gladdens my heart with a joy that's untold,
To think of that land where we'll never grow old.

Verse 2:
That wonderful land has a city of life,
Ne'er darken'd with anguish, nor dying, nor strife;
Its temples and streets are all flashing with gold,
Oh, can it be true, will we never grow old?

Verse 3:
A mansion of wonderful beauty is there,
And Jesus that mansion has gone to prepare;
Its bright jasper walls how I long to behold,
And join in the song that will never grow old.

Verse 4:
They tell me its friendships and love are so pure,
Its joys never die, and its treasures are sure;
And loved ones departed, so silent and cold,
Will greet us again where we'll never grow old.

Verse 5:
In life's weary conflicts, there's fainting and care,
Each year the gray deepens a shade in the hair;
But in the blest book where my name is enrolled,
I read of that land where we'll never grow old.

Verse 1:
Glory to Jesus, He saves even me!
All my guilt nailing to Calvary's tree;
Paid is the debt and my soul is set free,
Glory to Jesus, He saves!

Refrain:
Glory, He saves! wondrously saves!
Saves a poor sinner like me;
Glory, He saves! wondrously saves!
Glory to Jesus, He saves!

Wand'ring He found me afar from the fold,
Perishing there in the darkness and cold;
Half of His goodness can never be told,
Glory to Jesus, He saves!

Verse 3:
Safely and sweetly He keeps me each day,
Gently, so gently He leads all the way;
Answers of peace sends He down when I pray,
Glory to Jesus, He saves!

Blessed companionship! cheering me so!
Sweeter and sweeter each day shall it grow,
Till to be like Him I joyfully go,
Glory to Jesus, He saves!

90. A Song in my Heart

Duet

The "bark" referred to in the refrain is a poetic way of
depicting a small sailing vessel.

Verse 1:
There's a song in my heart, 'tis a song of joy,
And I learned it long ago,
At the cross of my Lord where He died for me,
And the streams of His mercy flow.

Refrain:
O that happy, happy song as I speed my bark along;
How refreshing to my soul when the stormy waters roll;
O that happy, happy song will be dearer far to me,
When I anchor in the morning, blessed morning.

Verse 2:
There's a song in my heart, 'tis a song of trust,
And my theme from morn till eve,
For it tells of the peace my Redeemer gives
Unto those that His grace receive.

Verse 3:
There's a song in my heart, 'tis a song of love,
That the angels cannot sing,
For they know not the bliss of a newborn soul,
Tho' their harps with its gladness ring.

Verse 4:
There's a song in my heart, 'tis a song of praise,
I will sing it o'er and o'er,
Thro' the isles of the blest will its tones resound,
When on earth they are heard no more.

89. We shall Sing the Glad New Song

The women sing first in the refrain and the men echo until they join in the last phrase.

Verse 1:

We shall sing the glad, new song,

Over on the golden shore,

With the holy, happy throng,

When these tolling days are o’er.

Refrain:

We shall sing………….the glad new song,

           (We shall sing the glad new song,)

We shall sing………….the glad new song,

We shall sing………….the glad new song,

           (We shall sing the glad new song,)

Over yonder by and by.

Verse 2:

We shall learn the joyful strain,

When have passed life’s fleeting days,

Sing the tender, sweet refrain,

Full of glad thanksgiving praise.

Verse 3:

Evermore the notes shall rise

Sweet and clear in tones of love,

Blessed anthems of the skies,

Gladd’ning all the realms above.

March on, march on, Jesus our Captain and Lord;
