Click Hymn #197 It Came Upon
The Midnight Clear.

1.It came upon
the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending
near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold;
Peace on the earth,
good will to men,
From Heaven’s all gracious king.
The world in s
olemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing.

2.Still through the cloven
skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their
heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world;
Above its sad
and lowly plains,
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever over
its Babel sounds
The blessèd angels sing.

3.And ye, beneath
life’s crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along
the climbing way
With painful steps and slow,
Look now! for glad
and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing.
O rest beside
the weary road,
And hear the angels sing!

4.For lo! the days
are hastening on,
By prophet-bards foretold,
When with the
ever circling years
Comes round the age of gold;
When peace shall
over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling,
And the whole world
send back the song
Which now the angels sing.

1.O holy night,
the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night
of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world
in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared
and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope,
the weary soul rejoices,
For yonder breaks
a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees,
O hear the angel voices!
O night divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night,
O night divine!

2.Led by the light
of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts
by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of
a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men
from Orient land.
The King of kings lay
thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials
born to be our friend!
He knows our need—
to our weakness
is no stranger.
Behold your king;
before Him lowly bend!
Behold your king;
before Him lowly bend!

3.Truly He taught us
to love one another;
His law is love
and His Gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break,
for the slave is our brother
And in His name
all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy
in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us
praise His holy name!
Christ is the Lord!
O praise His name forever!
His pow’r and glory
evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory
evermore proclaim!

that was so deep.

And so it continued

of that same star
Three wise men came
from country far;
To seek for a king
was their intent,
And to follow the star
wherever it went.

to the northwest,
Over Bethlehem
it took its rest;
And there it did
both stop and stay,
Right over the place
where Jesus lay.

Full reverently
upon the knee,
And offered there,
in His presence,
Their gold and myrrh

Sing praises to
our heavenly Lord;
That hath made Heaven
and earth of naught,
And with His blood
mankind hath bought.

While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.

Proclaim the holy birth,
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth!

The wondrous Gift is giv’n;
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His Heav’n.

But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in,
Be born in us today.

At Thy coming to victory,

Saying Yet there is room,
There is room at My side for thee.

Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Click Hymn #258 There Is A Fountain

258_1.There is a fountain filled with blood
drawn from Emmanuel’s veins;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
lose all their guilty stains.
Lose all their guilty stains,
lose all their guilty stains;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
lose all their guilty stains.

The dying thief rejoiced to see
that fountain in his day;
And there have I, though vile as he,
washed all my sins away.
Washed all my sins away,
washed all my sins away;
And there have I, though vile as he,
washed all my sins away.

Dear dying Lamb,
Thy precious blood
shall never lose its power
Till all the ransomed church of God
be saved, to sin no more.
Be saved, to sin no more,
be saved, to sin no more;
Till all the ransomed church of God
be saved, to sin no more.

E’er since, by faith,
I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
and shall be till I die.
And shall be till I die,
and shall be till I die;
Redeeming love has been my theme,
and shall be till I die.

the Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently the cross
of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God
to order and provide;
In every change,
He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul:
Thy best, thy heavenly friend
Through thorny ways
leads to a joyful end.

2.Be still, my soul:
thy God doth undertake
To guide the future,
as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence
let nothing shake;
All now mysterious
shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul:
the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them
while He dwelt below.

3.Be still, my soul:
the hour is hastening on
When we shall be
forever with the Lord.
When disappointment,
grief and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love’s
purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul:
when change and tears are past
All safe and blessèd
we shall meet at last.

Our efforts, here; are to the end that our people, incl Congregation, Song Leaders, and Musicians will learn more of the Hymns in our Hymnal,
and as a result, we can have more variety in the choices of hymns in our services.

It has been said that most churches utilize; regularly, only about 25 percent of the hymns in the average Hymnal
