** CLOSING HYMN: “He Giveth More Grace”

~~~RESOURCES FOR WORSHIP~~~
“Victory in Jesus”
1 I heard an old, old story how a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning, of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

[refrain]
O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.

2 I heard about His healing, of His cleansing power revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again and caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, “Dear Jesus, come and heal my broken spirit,”
And somehow Jesus came and brought to me the victory.

3 I heard about a mansion He has built for me in glory.
And I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing and the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.

“It Is Well With My Soul”
1 When peace like a river attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, “It is well, it is well with my soul.”

[refrain]
It is well with my soul; it is well, it is well with my soul.

2 Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come, let this blest assurance control:
that Christ has regarded my helpless estate, and has shed his own blood for my soul.

3 My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought! My sin, not in part, but the whole,
is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more; praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

4 O Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight, the clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
the trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend; even so, it is well with my soul.

“Farther On”
1 As you travel through the desert storms beset us on the way
Just beyond the river Jordan lies a field of endless day

[refrain]
Farther on, still go farther. Count the milestones one by one
Jesus will forsake you never; it is better Farther On

2 Oh, my brother are you weary at the roughness of the way?
Does your strength begin to fail you and your vigor to decay?

3 Jesus, Jesus will go with you, He will take you to God’s throne
He Who dyed His garments for you and the wine-press trod alone

4 At my grave O still be singing though you weep for one that’s gone
Sing it as you once did sing it – It is better Farther on

“He Giveth More Grace”
He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials His multiplied peace.
His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
His pow’r has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done;
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
His pow’r has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.
