Sunday Hymns - Blessed Assurance



    Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
    Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
    Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
    Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

      
        This is my story, this is my song,
        Praising my Savior all the day long;
        This is my story, this is my song,
        Praising my Savior all the day long.

    Perfect submission, perfect delight,
    Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
    Angels, descending, bring from above
    Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

        This is my story, this is my song,
        Praising my Savior all the day long;
        This is my story, this is my song,
        Praising my Savior all the day long.

    Perfect submission, all is at rest,
    I in my Savior am happy and blest,
    Watching and waiting, looking above,
    Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

      
        This is my story, this is my song,
        Praising my Savior all the day long;
        This is my story, this is my song,
        Praising my Savior all the day long.

Sunday Hymns - Glory to His Name



    Down at the cross where my Savior died,
    Down where for cleansing from sin I cried,
    There to my heart was the blood applied;
    Glory to His Name!


        Refrain:
        Glory to His Name,
        Glory to His Name:
        There to my heart was the blood applied;
        Glory to His Name!


    I am so wondrously saved from sin,
    Jesus so sweetly abides within,
    There at the cross where He took me in;
    Glory to His Name!


    Oh, precious fountain that saves from sin,
    I am so glad I have entered in;
    There Jesus saves me and keeps me clean;
    Glory to His Name!


    Come to this fountain so rich and sweet,
    Cast thy poor soul at the Savior’s feet;
    Plunge in today, and be made complete;
    Glory to His Name!

Sunday Hymns - Alas and Did My Savior Bleed

VERSE 1 
Alas, and did my Savior bleed 
And did my Sovereign die? 
Would He devote that sacred head 
For such a worm as I? 
Was it for sins that I had done 
He groaned upon the tree? 
Amazing pity, grace unknown 
And love beyond degree 

CHORUS 
My God, why would You shed Your blood 
So pure and undefiled 
To make a sinful one like me 
Your chosen, precious child? 

VERSE 2 
Well might the sun in darkness hide 
And shut His glories in 
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died 
For man, the creature’s, sin 
Thus might I hide my blushing face 
While His dear cross appears 
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness 
And melt my eyes to tears
