Each Life That Touches Ours for Good, 293 Karen Lynn Davidson

 

1.  Each life that touches ours for good

Reflects thine own great mercy, Lord;

Thou sendest blessings from above

Thru words and deeds of those who love.

 

2.  What greater gift dost thou bestow,

What greater goodness can we know

Than Christ-like friends, whose gentle ways

Strengthen our faith, enrich our days.

 

3.  When such a friend from us departs,

We hold forever in our hearts

A sweet and hallowed memory,

Bringing us nearer, Lord, to thee.

 

4.  For worthy friends whose lives proclaim

Devotion to the Savior's name,

Who bless our days with peace and love,

We praise thy goodness, Lord above.

For the Strength of the Hills, 35 - Felicia D. Hemans; adapted by Edward L. Sloan

 

  1. For the strength of the hills we bless thee, Our God, our fathers' God;

    Thou hast led thy chosen Israel To freedom's last abode;
    For the strength of the hills we bless thee, Our God, our fathers' God.

 

  1. At the hands of foul oppressors, We've borne and suffered long;
    Thou hast been our help in weakness, And thy pow'r hath made us strong.
    Amid ruthless foes outnumbered, In weariness we trod;
    For the strength of the hills we bless thee, Our God, our fathers' God.

 

  1. Thou hast led us here in safety Where the mountain bulwark stands
    As the guardian of the loved ones Thou has brought from many lands.
    For the rock and for the river, The valley's fertile sod;
    For the strength of the hills we bless thee, Our God, our fathers' God.

 

  1. We are watchers of a beacon Whose light must never die;
    We are guardians of an altar 'Midst the silence of the sky.
    Here the rocks yield founts of courage, Struck forth as by thy rod;
    For the strength of the hills we bless thee, Our God, our fathers' God.

 

 

From All That Dwell Below the Skies, 90 - Isaac Watts

 

  1. From all that dwell below the skies, Let the Creator's praise arise;
    Let the Redeemer's name be sung Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue.

 

  1. In ev'ry land begin the song; To ev'ry land the strains belong.
    In cheerful sounds all voices raise And fill the world with loudest praise.

 

  1. Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring; In songs of praise divinely sing.
    The great salvation loud proclaim, And shout for joy the Savior's name.

 

  1. Eternal are thy mercies, Lord; Eternal truth attends thy word.
    Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, Till suns shall rise and set no more.

 

 

From Homes of Saints Glad Songs Arise, 297 - Vernald W. Johns

 

1.  From homes of Saints glad songs arise, For there the Lord is King.

There faith is learned and prayers ascend, The Spirit's peace to bring.

For homes where scriptures old are loved, And living prophets, too,

All thanks we give; the Father praise For guidance sure and true.

 

2.  God's truths protect the hearth from wrong When error's ways allure,

Lift minds from self to nobleness, Keep thought and action pure.

Then sing, O Saints, in hymns of praise; Sing thanks to God on high,

Whose counsels kept in homes on earth Bring heaven's glory nigh.
