Sunday Hymns - Joy Has Dawned Upon the World

Joy has dawned upon the world,
 Promised from creation—
God's salvation now unfurled,
Hope for ev'ry nation.
Not with fanfares from above,
Not with scenes of glory,
But a humble gift of love—
Jesus born of Mary.

Sounds of wonder fill the sky
With the songs of angels
As the mighty Prince of Life
Shelters in a stable.
Hands that set each star in place,
Shaped the earth in darkness,
Cling now to a mother's breast,
Vuln'rable and helpless.

Shepherds bow before the Lamb,
Gazing at the glory;
Gifts of men from distant lands
Prophesy the story.
Gold—a King is born today,
Incense—God is with us,
Myrrh—His death will make a way,
And by His blood He'll win us.

Son of Adam, Son of heaven,
Given as a ransom;
Reconciling God and man,
Christ, our mighty champion!
What a Savior! What a Friend!
What a glorious myst'ry!
Once a babe in Bethlehem,
Now the Lord of hist'ry.

Sunday Hymns - The Light of the World


  The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin,
    The Light of the world is Jesus!
    Like sunshine at noonday, His glory shone in;
    The Light of the world is Jesus!

        Refrain:

        Come to the light, ’tis shining for thee;
        Sweetly the light has dawned upon me;
        Once I was blind, but now I can see:
        The Light of the world is Jesus!

    No darkness have we who in Jesus abide;

    The Light of the world is Jesus!
    We walk in the light when we follow our Guide!
    The Light of the world is Jesus!

    Ye dwellers in darkness with sin-blinded eyes,

    The Light of the world is Jesus!
    Go, wash at His bidding, and light will arise;
    The Light of the world is Jesus!

    No need of the sunlight in Heaven we’re told;

    The Light of the world is Jesus!
    The Lamb is the Light in the city of gold,
    The Light of the world is Jesus!

Sunday Hymns - My Worth is not in what I Own

My worth is not in what I own
Not in the strength of flesh and bone
But in the costly wounds of love
At the cross

My worth is not in skill or name
In win or lose, in pride or shame
But in the blood of Christ that flowed
At the cross

Refrain:
I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest Treasure,
Wellspring of my soul
I will trust in Him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

As summer flowers we fade and die
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by
But life eternal calls to us
At the cross

I will not boast in wealth or might
Or human wisdom's fleeting light
But I will boast in knowing Christ
At the cross

Refrain

Two wonders here that I confess
My worth and my unworthiness
My value fixed - my ransom paid
At the cross

Refrain

Sunday Hymns - One Day

    One day when Heaven was filled with His praises,
    One day when sin was as black as could be,
    Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,
    Dwelt among men, my example is He!

        Refrain:
        Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
        Buried, He carried my sins far away;
        Rising, He justified freely forever;
        One day He’s coming—oh, glorious day!

    One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain,
    One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
    Suffering anguish, despised and rejected:
    Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He!

    One day they left Him alone in the garden,
    One day He rested, from suffering free;
    Angels came down o’er His tomb to keep vigil;
    Hope of the hopeless, my Savior is He!

    One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
    One day the stone rolled away from the door;
    Then He arose, over death He had conquered;
    Now is ascended, my Lord evermore!

    One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
    One day the skies with His glories will shine;
    Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing;
    Glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine!
