    Blessed Assurance

    (FORD, ERNEST J., FASCINATO, JACK)

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

    [Refrain:]
    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.
    [Refrain]

    Softly And Tenderly

    (Frank Rogers, Josh Turner)

    Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
    Calling for you and for me.
    See, on the portals, He's waiting and watching;
    Watching for you and for me.

    [Chorus:]
    Come home, come home,
    Ye who are weary come home;
    Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
    Calling, "O sinner, come home!"

    O for the wonderful love He has promised,
    Promised for you and for me.
    Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon;
    Pardon for you and for me.

    [Repeat Chorus]

    I Love To Tell The Story

    (Steve Tyrell, Andy Griffith, David Lee Huntsinger)

    I love to tell the story
    Of unseen things above,
    Of Jesus and his glory,
    Of Jesus and his love.
    I love to tell the story,
    Because I know 'tis true;
    It satisfies my longings
    As nothing else can do.

    [Refrain:]
    I love to tell the story,
    'twill be my theme in glory,
    To tell the old, old story
    Of Jesus and his love.

    I love to tell the story,
    For those who know it best
    Seem hungering and thirsting
    To hear it like the rest.
    And when, in scenes of glory,
    I sing the new, new song,
    'twill be the old, old story
    That I have loved so long.
    [Refrain]

    When We All Get To Heaven

    (Jack Taylor, Eliza Hewitt, Emily Wilson)
    Sing the wondrous love of Jesus;
    Sing his mercy and his grace.
    In the mansions bright and blessed
    He'll prepare for us a place.

    [Refrain:]
    When we all get to heaven,
    What a day of rejoicing that will be!
    When we all see Jesus,
    We'll sing and shout the victory!

    Onward to the prize before us!
    Soon his beauty we'll behold;
    Soon the pearly gates will open;
    We shall tread the streets of gold.
    [Refrain]

    'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus

    (Louisa Stead, WM. J. Kirkpatrick, Bob Burroughs)

    'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
    And to take him at his word;
    Just to rest upon his promise,
    And to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

    [Refrain:]
    Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him!
    How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
    Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
    O for grace to trust him more!

    I'm so glad I learned to trust thee,
    Precious Jesus, Savior, friend;
    And I know that thou art with me,
    Wilt be with me to the end.
    [Refrain]

    In The Garden

    (Austin Miles, George Schuler)

    I come to the garden alone
    While the dew is still on the roses
    And the voice I hear, falling on my ear
    The Son of God discloses
    And He walks with me
    And He talks with me
    And He tells me I am His own
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known

    I'd stay in the garden with Him
    'Tho the night around me is falling
    But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
    His voice to me is calling
    And He walks with me
    And He talks with me
    And He tells me I am His own
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known

    Are You Washed In The Blood

    (LOUVIN/LOUVIN)

    Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
    Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    [Chorus:]
    Are you washed in the blood,
    In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
    Are your garments spotless are they white as snow?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    Lay aside your garments that are stained with sin
    And be washed in the blood of the Lamb.
    There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean.
    O, be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

    [Chorus]

    I'll Fly Away

    (DAVIS, REV. GARY)

    Some glad morning when this life is o'er,
    I'll fly away;
    To a home on God's celestial shore,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away).

    [Chorus]
    I'll fly away, Oh Glory
    I'll fly away;
    When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away).

    Just a few more weary days and then,
    I'll fly away;
    To a land where joy shall never end,
    I'll fly away (I'll fly away)

    [Chorus]

    What A Friend We Have In Jesus

    (COSBY, HENRY)

    What a friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    O what peace we often forfeit,
    O what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer.

    Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.

    Standing On The Promises

    (DALTON, LARRY)

    Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
    Through eternal ages let his praises ring;
    Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
    Standing on the promises of God.

    [Refrain:]
    Standing, standing,
    Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
    Standing, standing,
    I'm standing on the promises of God.
    Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
    Listening every moment to the Spirit's call,
    Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
    Standing on the promises of God.
    [Refrain]

    Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

    (LEMMEL, HELEN HOWARTH)

    O soul are you weary and troubled?
    No light in the darkness you see?
    There's light for a look at the Saviour,
    And life more abundant and free:

    [Chorus:]
    Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
    Look full in His wonderful face;
    And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
    In the light of His glory and grace.

    Through death into life everlasting
    He passed, and we follow Him there;
    Over us sin no more hath dominion
    For more than conqu'rors we are!

    [Chorus]

    His word shall not fail you He promised;
    Believe Him and all will be well.
    Then go to a world that is dying,
    His perfect salvation to tell!

    [Chorus]

    Leaning On The Everlasting Arms

    (Green, Andrew / Hoffman, Elisha A. / Showalter, Anthony J.)

    What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms;
    What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.

    [Refrain:]
    Leaning, leaning,
    Safe and secure from all alarms;
    Leaning, leaning,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.

    What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms?
    I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.
    [Refrain]

    The Old Rugged Cross

    (UNKNOWN WRITER, / BENNARD, GEORGE)

    On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
    The emblem of suffering and shame;
    And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
    For a world of lost sinners was slain.

    [Refrain:]
    So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
    Till my trophies at last I lay down;
    I will cling to the old rugged cross,
    And exchange it some day for a crown.

    To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
    It's shame and reproach gladly bear;
    Then he'll call me some day to my home far away,
    Where his glory forever I'll share.

    [Refrain]

    How Great Thou Art

    (HINE, STUART KEENE / DRUMMOND, JOHN)

    Oh Lord my God
    When I in awesome wonder
    Consider all the works
    Thy hands have made
    I see the stars
    I hear the rolling thunder
    Thy power throughout
    The universe displayed

    Then sings my soul
    My Saviour, God, to Thee
    How great thou art
    How great thou art
    Then sings my soul
    My Saviour, God, to Thee
    How great Thou art
    How great Thou art

    When Christ shall come
    With shouts of adulation
    And take me home
    What joy shall fill my heart
    Then I shall bow
    In humble adoration
    And there proclaim My God
    How great Thou art

    Then sings my soul
    My Saviour, God, to Thee
    How great Thou art
    How great Thou art
    Then sings my soul
    My Saviour, God, to Thee
    How great Thou art
    How great Thou art

    How great Thou art
    How great Thou art...

    I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You

    If I survey all the good things that come to me from above
    If I count all the blessings from the storehouse of love
    I'd simply ask for the favor of him beyond mortal king
    And I'm sure he would grant it again
    I want to stroll over Heaven with you some glad day When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished a
    way Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new
    I want to stroll over Heaven with you

    So many places of beauty we long to see here below
    But time and treasures have kept us from making plans as you know
    But come the morning of rapture together we'll stand a new
    While I stroll over Heaven with you
    I want to stroll over Heaven with you some glad day
    When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished away
    Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new
    I want to stroll over Heaven with you
