Song Lyrics

For Sunday, January 23

 

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness
O God, my Father
There is no shadow
Of turning with Thee
Thou changest not
Thy compassions they fail not
As Thou hast been
Thou forever wilt be

Chorus
Great is Thy faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning
New mercies I see
All I have needed
Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness
Lord, unto me

Summer and winter
And springtime and harvest
Sun, moon, and stars
In their courses above
Join with all nature
In manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness
Mercy and love

Pardon for sin
And a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence
To cheer and to guide
Strength for today
And bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine
With ten thousand beside

 

I Need Thee Every Hour

I need Thee every hour
Most gracious Lord
No tender voice like Thine
Can peace afford

Chorus
I need Thee, O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee
O bless me now, my Savior
I come to Thee

I need Thee every hour
Stay Thou nearby
Temptations lose their power
When Thou art nigh

I need Thee every hour
In joy or pain
Come quickly and abide
Or life is vain

I need Thee every hour
Teach me Thy will
And Thy rich promises
In me fulfill

I need Thee every hour
Most Holy One
O make me Thine indeed
Thou blessed Son

 

Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me

What gift of grace 
Is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more
For heaven now to give
He is my joy
My righteousness and freedom
My steadfast love
My deep and boundless peace

Chorus
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh how strange and divine
I can sing “All is mine”
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

The night is dark
But I am not forsaken
For by my side
The Savior He will stay
I labor on
In weakness and rejoicing
For in my need
His power is displayed

Chorus 2
To this I hold, my Savior will defend me
Through the deepest valley He will lead
Oh the night has been won
And I shall overcome
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

No fate I dread
I know I am forgiven
The future sure
The price it has been paid
For Jesus bled
And suffered for my pardon
And He was raised
To overthrow the grave

Chorus 3
To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released
I can sing “I am free”
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

With every breath
I long to follow Jesus
For He has said
That He will bring me home
And day by day
I know He will renew me
Until I stand
With joy before the throne

Chorus 4
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete
Still my lips shall repeat
“Yet not I, but through Christ in me”

Tag
When the race is complete
Still my lips shall repeat
“Yet not I, but through Christ in me”
“Yet not I, but through Christ in me”
“Yet not I, but through Christ in me”

I know He will renew me
Until I stand
With joy before the throne
