No. 160 All My Life Long

Verse 1:
All my life long have my steps been attended
Surely by One who regarded my ways;
Tenderly watched over, sweetly befriended,
Blessings have follow’d my nights and my days;
Tears have been quenched in the sunshine of gladness,
Anthems of sorrow been turned into song;
Angels have guarded the gateways of sadness,
Summer and winter, yes, all my life long.

Verse 2:
All in the dark would I be, and uncertain
Whither to go, but for One at my side,
Who from the future removes the dim curtain
Lining the glory to mortals denied;
No other friend could so patiently lead me,
No other friend prove so faithful and strong;
With angels’ food He has promised to feed me,
Who hath befriended me all my life long.

Verse 3:
He will not weary, O blessed assurance!
Infinite love will the finite outlast;
But for my heavenly Father’s assurance,
Into the depths of despair I were cast;
This is my star in a midnight of sorrow,
This is my refuge, my strength and my song;
Earth is today, but there’s heaven tomorrow,
And Jesus will guide me all my live long.

No. 118 In the Ark of His Love

Verse 1:
There’s a place for the Christian to hide
In the hour of his sorrow and woe;
When beateth dark grief’s angry tide,
Oh, ’tis sweet of that refuge to know.

Refrain:
In the ark of His love, of His love,
In the secret pavilion of God;
In the ark of His love, of His love,
In the secret pavilion of God.

Verse 2:
It is far from the world’s noisy strife,
Far away from the turmoil of sin,
None know of its “newness of life,”
Save those who in joy enter in.

Verse 3:
O toilers by sorrow oppressed,
Come enter this joyful abode,
Come, taste of its sweetness and rest,
And cast off your sin-given load.

Nettie J. Hunt/T. Martin Towne
From “Lost and Saved”

I assume “Lost and Saved” is another publication of hymns and/or popular songs. I will have to look into it.

No. 106: May Jesus Be With You

Verse 1:
May Jesus be with you,
Till we meet once more,
Ever walk beside you,
With his grace provide you,
Till we meet once more.

Refrain:
May Jesus be with you,
May Jesus be with you;
May Jesus be with you,
Till we meet in the home above.

Verse 2:
May Jesus be with you,
Till we meet once more,
May the way grow brighter,
Cares and burdens lighter,
Till we meet once more.

Verse 3:
May Jesus be with you,
Till we meet once more,
In green pastures lead you,
Heav’nly manna feed you,
Till we meet once more.

No. 105: All is Well

Verse 1:
All is well, my soul is singing,
All is well His praises ringing;
All my heart its tribute bringing,
All is well, all is well.

Refrain:
All is well, for He knows best,
All is well, in Him I rest;
All is well, all is well, all is well.

Verse 2:
All is well by Him directed;
All the way by Him protected;
Never any need neglected,
All is well, all is well.

Verse 3:
All is well in pain or pleasure,
Jesus’ love no words can measure,
Jesus is my heart’s best treasure,
All is well, all is well.

Verse 4:
All is well by Him befriended,
All my life with Him attended,
All is well when life is ended,
All is well, all is well.

No. 51

No title is given for this hymn, although I believe it is “In the Secret of His Presence”.

Verse 1:
In the secret of His presence,
I am kept from strife of tongues,
His pavilion is around me,
And within are ceaseless songs;
Stormy winds, His words fulfilling,
Beat without, but cannot harm,
For the Master’s voice is stilling
Storm and tempest to a calm.

Verse 2:
In the secret of His presence,
All the darkness disappears,
For a sun that knows no setting,
Throws a rainbow on my fears,
So the day grows ever brighter,
Broadening to the perfect noon,
So the way grows ever brighter,
Heaven is coming near and soon.

Verse 3:
In the secret of His presence,
Nevermore can foes alarm,
In the shadow of the highest,
I can meet them with a song.
For the strong pavilion hides me,
Turns their fiery darts aside,
And I know whate’er betides me,
I shall live because He died.

Verse 4:
In the secret of His presence,
In the sweet, unbroken rest,
Pleasures, joys, in glorious fullness,
Making earth like Eden blest;
So my peace grows deep and deeper,
Widening as it nears the sea,
For my Savior is my keeper,
Keeping mine and keeping me.

Rev. Henry Burton

No. 46 Happy Greeting

Verse 1:
Come, let us be joyful and mingle our song,
And hail the sweet joys which this day brings along;
We’ll join our glad voices in one hymn of praise
To Him who has kept us, and lengthened our days.

Refrain:
Happy greeting to all!
Happy greeting to all,
Happy greeting, happy greeting,
Happy greeting to all!

Verse 2:
Dear Jesus our Savior, we lift up to Thee,
Our voice of thanksgiving, our glad jubilee;
Protect us, and keep us, dear Jesus, we pray,
That from Thy blest precepts we never stray.

Verse 3:
And if, ere this new week has drawn to a close,
Some loved one among us in death shall repose,
O Lord, may the dear one in blessedness dwell,
In the mansions of Jesus, where all shall be well.

No. 26 He Cares for You

Verse 1:
He will watch o’er, He will guard you
In sorrow and danger,
All His loved ones, all His faithful
Who trust in His name.

Refrain:
Take no tho’t for the morrow,
Fear not pain nor sorrow;
Seek not trouble to borrow,
He careth for you.

Verse 2:
Only seek ye for the kingdom;
The rest shall be given
To His loved ones and His faithful
Who trust in His name.
