Who Is on the Lord’s Side?

Who is on the Lord’s side? who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers, other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side? Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side? Who for Him will go?
By Thy call of mercy, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side; Savior, we are Thine.

Not for weight of glory, not for crown and palm,
Enter we the army, raise the warrior psalm;
But for love that claimeth lives for whom He died;
He whom Jesus nameth must be on His side.
By Thy love constraining, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side; Savior, we are Thine.

Jesus, Thou hast bought us, not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own life-blood, for Thy diadem;
With Thy blessing filling each who comes to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing, Thou hast made us free.
By Thy grand redemption, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side; Savior, we are Thine.

Fierce may be the conflict, strong may be the foe,
But the King’s own army none can overthrow.
Round His standard ranging victory is secure,
For His truth unchanging makes the triumph sure.
Joyfully enlisting, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side; Savior, we are Thine.

Amen.

God Our Refuge

God, our refuge when in trouble, God, our strength when death is near;
Though the earth should quake and tremble, yet Thy servants need not fear;
Though the waters roar and tempest, mountains fall into the sea:
Oh Father Thou are faithful, there is refuge ‘neath Thy wings.

There’s a peaceful river flowing through this wild tempest’ous land
Where a sinner may find healing and the weary be made glad;
An oasis in the desert full of dry relentless heat;
Oh Father Thou the river, there is refuge at Thy feet.

Come behold the Lord of glory and the works His hands have wrought;
War doth cease when He give utt’rance, sword and spear doth break apart;
He has power o’er the waging of the cruelest enemies:
Oh Father Thou our refuge, thou dost cause the wars to cease.

O, my child, be still and know that I am ever in control;
I’m exalted o’er the heathen, I’m exalted evermore;
O, the Lord of hosts is with us, He’s our God and He’s our stay:
Oh Father Thou our refuge, blessed refuge, come what may.

Bright New World

Some day a bright new wave will break upon the shore
And there will be no sickness, no more crying, no more war
And little children never will go hungry any more
And there will be a bright new morning over there.
There’ll be a bright new world for us to share.

Some day there’ll be an end to unkind words and cruel
The man who said there is no God will know he is a fool
And peace will be a way of life with love the only rule
And there will be a bright new morning over there.
There’ll be a bright new world for us to share.

Some day we know not when, when time on earth is done
And those redeemed from every land will all become as one
With voices of all ages praising God the three in one
And there will be a bright new morning over there.
There’ll be a bright new world for us to share.

Some day a bright new wave will break upon the shore.

Tools for the Task

I’m a tool for the task
Of the Master’s Great Commission
He said “Go ye into all the world.”
I have a voice to tell the story
And eyes to see the hurting
And arms that I can open wide in love.

So let my eyes see the one who walks in darkness
And let my arms reach out to love them in Your name
And let my voice forever tell the story
That You loved the world, and that is why You came.

Army of People

There’s an army of people they’re marching on
Their faces like flint but their hearts are warm
It’s the army of God in an end time war
They’ve got a lot of scars but they just don’t care
‘Cause they’ve set their hearts on a battle won
And they’ll give their lives for a victor’s crown
You can hear them shout as they still fight on
In their weary heart they’ve still got a song.

There’s a battle fierce and an angry foe
And there’s wounded soldiers where ‘ere they go
But let courage rise to the weary in heart
‘Cause it won’t be long we’ll hear the Captain’s call
He’ll say well done my child and a welcome home
You’ve fought a good fight and the battle’s been won
You’ve been wounded sore I have heard your cry
Then He’ll wipe those tears from your tear stained eyes.

They have fought so hard they’ve been tempted sore
To give up the fight but they’ll fight once more
‘Cause they won’t give up though they sometimes lose
The enemy’s mark they will still refuse
They’ve put their hands to the plow and their back to the load
And their feet march on in spite of the road
‘Cause it won’t be long till the triumph song
And you can’t look back if you want to go on.

Behold Our God

Who has held the oceans in His hands?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at His voice,
All creation rises to rejoice.

Refrain:
Behold our God seated on His throne,
Come, let us adore Him!
Behold our King! Nothing can compare,
Come, let us adore Him!

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the One Who knows all things?
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?

Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal humbled to the grave,
Jesus, Savior risen now to reign!

You will reign forever, let your glory fill the earth,
You will reign forever, let your glory fill the earth,
You will reign forever, let your glory fill the earth,
You will reign forever, let your glory fill the earth.
