HYMNS
 

Hymn #469

Eternal God, the Cause of all creation,
Your goodness shines through all eternity.
From age to age Your name has been exalted,
Your glory fills the earth, the sky, and sea.
Almighty One, creative Mind, our Maker,
Which was, and is, and evermore shall be.

Dear God of love, eternal Father-Mother,
Supply our need, our every need each day;
Teach us to love the way You love Your children,
Purge us from sin and self, with trust we pray:
“Thy kingdom come,” in all earth as in heaven,
You are our light, our guide, our hope, our stay.

Your Word of truth is ever our companion;
We are assured Your healing love is here.
Help us to prove, as Jesus proved before us,
Truth casts out sin, disease, and death, and fear.
And may Your Word abide with us forever,
O Lord of life, of truth, and love, most dear.

 

Hymn #595

When my heart is lost in sorrow,
and light seems far and dim,
There's a tender prayer I can always pray:
Simply praising Him.

REFRAIN 1
Praise the creator. Let all within me sing!
For that's what I am made to do, and
comfort it will bring.

When weariness engulfs me,
discouragement sinks in,
There's a hopeful prayer I can always pray:
Simply praising Him.

REFRAIN 2
Praise the creator. Let all within me sing!
For that's what I am made to do, and
courage it will bring.

When my days feel much too busy
to find where prayer fits in,
There's a timeless prayer I can always pray:
Simply praising Him.

REFRAIN 3
Praise the creator. Let all within me sing!
For that's what I am made to do, and
stillness it will bring.

When earth seems satisfying,
my joys filled to the brim,
There's still a prayer I need to pray:
Simply praising Him.

REFRAIN 4
Praise the creator. Let all within me sing!
For that's what I am made to do,
and goodness it will bring.
For that's what we are made to do,
let all the earth now sing!

 

Hymn #554

One by one, pure thoughts and holy
Lift us out of self and sin;
One by one, bright gleams of glory
Show the goal we all will win.
One by one, our trusts are strengthened,
As our lives to God we give;
One by one, our days are lengthened,
While in Love we move and live.

One by one, our aims grow purer,
As our deeds reflect our God;
One by one, our path grows clearer,
Guided by Love's staff and rod.
One by one, our thoughts move forward
To the time by prophets told;
One by one, our lives move homeward
Singing of one Lord, one fold.

Then within Love's ever-presence
We shall live amid its light,
Knowing well that holy brilliance
Which is called the Infinite.
Know the glories of God's kingdom,
Hear the music Spirit sings,
Be at one with that great Wisdom
From which all creation springs.
