Come Ye Sinners – Words by Joseph Hart (1759), Contemporary Music by Matthew Smith

Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus, ready, stands to save you,
Full of pity, joined with power.
He is able, He is able;
He is willing; doubt no more.

Jesus Lover of My Soul – Words by Charles Wesley (1740), Contemporary Music by Greg Thompson

Jesus, lover of my soul,
Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high.
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
’Til life’s storm is past;
Safe into the haven guide;
Receive my soul at last.

Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul – Words by Anne Steele (1716-1778), Contemporary Music by Kevin Twit

Dear refuge of my weary soul,
on Thee, when sorrows rise
on Thee, when waves of trouble roll,
my fainting hope relies;
To Thee I tell each rising grief,
for Thou alone canst heal.
Thy Word can bring a sweet relief,
for every pain I feel.

We also read The Valley of Vision prayer “Peril” between verses of “Dear Refuge of my Weary Soul”.

Help me, O Lord, to throw myself absolutely and wholly on You,
for better, for worse, without comfort, and all but hopeless.
Give me peace of soul, confidence, enlargement of mind,
morning joy that comes after night heaviness;
Water my soul richly with divine blessings;
Grant that I may welcome Your humbling in private
so that I might enjoy You in public;
Give me a mountain top as high as the valley is low.

All Must Be Well – Words by Mary Bowley Peters (1847) with contemporary music by Matthew Smith.

Through the love of God our Savior, all will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor, all is well;
Precious is the blood that healed us;
Perfect is the grace that sealed us;
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us,
all must be well.

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words by Robert Robinson (1758) Add. lyrics and arrangement by Page CXVI

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Here by Thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Lord, You sought me when a stranger,
wand’ring from the fold of God;
There, to rescue me from danger,
interposed Your precious blood.
