Let Us Lift Up The Name Of The Lord-Through Hymns

Recommended Posts

As I read through this topic I see songs with witch I am unfamiliar. I love many of the old hymns but would caution anyone to be wary of "Christian or Worship" music that is being sold for profit. Many "Praise and Worship" sell a lot of songs and make a lot of money and this is against what Christ taught. The only thing that angered Christ while on this earth was the sellers and moneychangers who were profiting from worshiping God. So, please be wary and don't spend your money on such things and don't support those who do. Remember, the money you spend for 1 song could also buy 1 meal for someone who is in need.

@unworthyservant Hi. Thanks for your concern. But I started this thread to celebrate the older hymns. They are available in the public domain for free. You don't even have to get permission to print the lyrics. There is no money-making involved. 

They are the ones I grew up singing as a child in church. :)The lyrics of hymns are beautiful and rich in doctrinal truth. The idea is to meditate upon them and honor the Lord. The purpose of this thread is to lift up the Name of Jesus Christ. 

Perhaps you have one you would like to add so we can ponder on the words and praise the Lord?

Oh. I know and I wasn't speaking to you directly. I simply decided that it was a good place to post a general comment on those who are making "Gospel" music and big profits singing and selling it. I've checked and from what I can see none of these groups or publishers is doing anything other than making themselves money. I can't find one that even tells where all the profits from their music goes but I noticed that none are registered as a non profit so as to take advantage of the tax laws if they are indeed using the money to do God's will.

I gave my life to thee 
My precious blood I shed 
That thou might ransomed be 

And quickened from the dead 

I gave, I gave my life for thee
What hast thou given for me?
I gave, I gave my life for thee
What hast thou given for me? 

My father's house of light
My glory circled throne
I left for earthly night
For wandering, sad alone 

I left, I left it all for thee
Hast thou left all for me?
I left, I left it all for thee
Hast thou left all for me? 

I sufferred much for thee
More than thy tongue can tell
Of bitterist agony
To rescue thee from hell 

I've borne, I've borne it all for thee
What hast thou borne for me?
I've borne, I've borne it all for thee
What hast thou borne for me? 

And I have brought to thee
Down from thine home above
Salvation full and free
My pardon and my love 

I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee
What hast thou brought for me?
I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee
What hast thou brought for me?

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer

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 every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Jesus is all the world to me:
  My life, my joy, my all.
He is my strength from day to day;
  Without Him I would fall.
When I am sad, to Him I go;
No other one can cheer me so.
When I am sad, He makes me glad;
  He's my Friend. 

Jesus is all the world to me,
  My Friend in trials sore.
I go to Him for blessings, and
  He gives them o'er and o'er.
He sends the sunshine and the rain;
He sends the harvest's golden grain:
Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain--
  He's my Friend. 

Jesus is all the world to me,
  And true to Him I'll be.
Oh, how could I this Friend deny
  When He's so true to me?
Following Him I know I'm right;
He watches o'er me day and night.
Following Him by day and night,
  He's my Friend. 

Jesus is all the world to me,
  I want no better friend.
I trust Him now; I'll trust Him when
  Life's fleeting days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend;
Beautiful life that has no end!
Eternal life, eternal joy,
  He's my Friend.

God leads Us Along

In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
God leads His dear children along;
Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,
God leads His dear children along.

Refrain:
Some through the waters, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night season and all the day long.

Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
God leads His dear children along;
Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
God leads His dear children along.

Though sorrows befall us and Satan oppose,
God leads His dear children along;
Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
God leads His dear children along.

Away from the mire, and away from the clay,
God leads His dear children along;
Away up in glory, eternity’s day,
God leads His dear children along.

 What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

(Matthew 10:29-31)

Don't be afraid 
His eye is on the sparrow
You are in your father's care 
Continually held in His gaze
Ever before His face

 

 

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

 

1 Why should I feel discouraged?
Why should the shadows come?
Why should my heart be lonely
and long for heaven and home,
when Jesus is my portion?
My constant friend is he:
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me;
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I’m happy, (I’m happy)
I sing because I’m free, (I’m free)
for his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me.

2 “Let not your heart be troubled,”
his tender word I hear, 
and resting on his goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
though by the path he leadeth
but one step I may see:
his eye is on the sparrow, 
and I know he watches me;
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me. [Refrain]

3 Whenever I am tempted,
whenever clouds arise,
when song gives place to sighing,
when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to him;
from care he sets me free:
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me;
his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me. [Refrain]
