651. Happy the Home That Welcomes You


1
Happy the home that welcomes You, Lord Jesus,
Truest of friends, most honored guest of all,
Where hearts and eyes are bright with joy to greet You,
Your lightest wishes eager to fulfill.

Happy the home where men and wife together
Are of one mind believing in Your love:
Through love and pain, prosperity and hardship,
Through good and evil days Your care they prove.

3
Happy the home, O loving Friend of children,
Where they are giv’n to You with hands of prayer,
Where at Your feet they early learn to listen
To Your own words, and thank You for Your care.

652. Love at Home


1
There is beauty all around, When there’s love at home;
There is joy in every sound, When there’s love at home.
Peace and plenty here abide, Smiling fair on every side;
Time doth softly, sweetly glide, When there’s love at home.

Refrain
Love at home, love at home;
Time doth softly, sweetly glide,
When there’s love at home.

2
Kindly heaven smiles above, When there’s love at home;
All the earth is fill’d with love, When there’s love at home.
Sweeter sings the brooklet by, Brighter beams the azure sky;
O, there’s One who smiles on high When there’s love at home.

3
Jesus, make me wholly Thine, Then there’s love at home;
May Thy sacrifice be mine, Then there’s love at home.
Safely from all harm I’ll rest, With no sinful care distress’d,
Thro’ Thy tender mercy blessed, When there’s love at home.

When earth looks bright and fair, Festive and gay,
Let no delusive snare Lure them astray;
But from temptation’s power, Lead them, my God, to Thee,
Lead them, my God, to Thee, Lead them to Thee.

3
E’en for such little ones, Christ came a child,
And in this world of sin Lived undefiled.
O, for His sake, I pray, Lead them, my God, to Thee,
Lead them, my God, to Thee, Lead them to Thee.

Lead them, my God, to Thee, Lead them to Thee.

Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
He delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
And he delivers them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
He delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the broken hearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Evil will slay the wicked;
The foes of the righteous will be condemned.
The Lord Redeems his servants;
No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.

– Psalm 34, N.I.V

 

697. Shout to the Lord

This is a piano arrangement of the hymn “Shout To the Lord  arranged by Carol Tornquist, taken from the book “Big Purple Book of Praise & Worship Piano Solos”, published by Word Music.

Lyrics as follows:

Shout to the Lord

My Jesus, my Savior, Lord, there is none like you. All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love. My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength, Let ev’ry breath, all that I am, never cease to worship you.

Chorus: Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing power and majesty, praise to the King. Mountains bow down and the seas will roar at the sound of your name. I sing for joy at the work of your hands. Forever I’ll love you, forever I’ll stand. Nothing compares to the promise I have in you.

698 – How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place

How lovely is thy dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!

My soul longs, yea, faints 
for the courts of the Lord; 
my heart and flesh sing for joy 
to the living God.

Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at thy altars, 0 Lord of hosts,
my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in thy house,
ever singing thy praise!

For a day in thy courts is better 
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper
in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
he bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does the Lord withhold
from those who walk uprightly.

O Lord of hosts,
blessed is the man who trusts in thee!

– From Psalm 84,R.S.V.
