Classic Christian Hymns and Three Prayers

Because He Lives

~William J. Gaither~

God sent His Son
They called Him Jesus
He came to love 
heal and forgive;
He lived and died
to buy my pardon. 
An empty grave is there
to prove my Saviour lives.

Chorus:

Because He lives
I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives
all fear is gone.
Because I know
He holds the future.
And life is worth the
living, Just because He lives.

How sweet to hold 
our newborn baby,
And feel the pride
and joy he gives;
But greater still,
the calm assurance,
This child can face 
uncertain days
because He lives.

And then one day
I'll cross that river
I'll fight life's final
was with pain; 
and then death
gives way to vict'ry
I'll see the lights of glory
and I'll know He reigns.

Have You Any Room for Jesus?

~C. C. Williams~

Have you any room for Jesus,
He who bore your load of sin?
As He knocks and asks admission,
Sinner, will you let Him in?

Chorus:

Room for Jesus, King of glory!
Hasten now His word obey;
Swing the heart's door widely
open, Bid Him enter while you may.

Room for pleasure, room for business,
But for Christ the Crucified,
Not a place that He can enter,
In the heart for which He died?

Have you any room for Jesus,
A sin grace He calls again?
O today is time accepted,
Tomorrow you may call in vain.

Room and time now give to Jesus,
Soon will pass God's day of grace;
Soon thy heart left cold and silent,
And thy Saviour's pleading  cease.

When He Was On the Cross

~Ronny Hinson and Mike Payne~

I'm not on an ego trip;
I'm nothing on my own.
I make mistakes and often slip,
just common flesh and bones.
But I'll prove someday 
just why I say I'm of a special kind.
For when He was on the Cross,
I was on His mind.

Chorus:

He knew me, yet He loved me,
He whose glory makes 
the heavens shine;
So unworthy of such mercy,
Yet when He was on the Cross,
I was on His mind.

A look of love was on his face,
the thorns on His head,
The blood was on His scarlet robe,
and stained it crimson red;
Tho His eyes were on the crowd that day,
He looked ahead in time.

Prayer # 1

O God, be Thou exalted over my possessions. Nothing of earth's treasures shall seem dear unto me if only Thou art glorified in my life. Be Thou exalted over my friendships. I am determined that Thou shalt be above all, though I must stand deserted and alone in the midst of the earth. Be Thou exalted above my comforts. Though it mean the loss of bodily comforts and the carrying of heavy crosses, I shall keep my vow made this day before Thee. Be Thou exalted over my reputation. Make me ambitious to please Thee even if as a result I must sink into obscurity and my name be forgotten as a dream. Rise, O Lord, into Thy proper place of honor, above my ambitions, above my likes and dislikes, above my family, my health and even my life itself. Let me sink that Thou mayst rise above. Ride forth upon me as Thou didst ride into Jerusalem mounted upon the humble little beast, a colt, the foal of an ass, and let me hear the children cry to Thee, "Hosanna in the highest." Amen
_____________________________

Prayer # 2

Lord, I would trust Thee completely; I would be altogether Thine; I would exalt Thee above all. I desire that I may feel no sense of possessing anything outside of Thee. I want constantly to be aware of Thy overshadowing presence and to hear Thy speaking voice. I long to live in restful sincerity of heart. I want to live so fully in the Holy Spirit that all my thoughts may be as sweet incense ascending to Thee and every act of my life may be an act of worship. Therefore I pray in the words of Thy great servant of old, "I beseech Thee so for to cleanse the intent of mine heart with the unspeakable gift of Thy grace, that I may perfectly love Thee and worthily praise Thee." And all this I confidently believe Thou wilt grant me through the merits of Jesus Christ Thy Son. Amen
_______________________

Prayer # 3

O Lord, I have heard a good word inviting me to look away to Thee and be satisfied. My heart longs to respond, but sin has clouded my vision till I see Thee but dimly. Be pleased to cleanse me in Thine own precious blood, and make me inwardly pure, so that I may with unveiled eyes gaze upon Thee all the days of my earthly pilgrimage. Then shall I be prepared to behold Thee in full splendor in the day when Thou shalt appear to be glorified in Thy saints and admired in all them that believe. Amen

Divine Care!



Divine Care!

("Comfort for the Desponding--Words to Soothe and Cheer Troubled Hearts!")

"Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you!" 1 Peter 5:7

The Christian's life is very much made up of cares and comforts.
Cares spring from earth--comfort comes from Heaven.
Cares prove him a sinner--holy comforts prove him a saint.
Cares flow in from a variety of quarters--true comfort from only one quarter.
Cares come naturally--but comforts come supernaturally.
We shall be sure to have earthly cares--but shall we have divine comfort?
This depends on God's grace, which gives it--and our faith, which receives it. Cares must be cast on our God--or they will prove a burden too heavy for us. They will depress us, bewilder us, and make us wretched. But here is our comfort--we have always ONE to care for us, and the very One which of all others we would wish to do so, "The Lord cares for you!"

God cares for whom? 

For you, who are born again by the Spirit.
For you, who are strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
For you, who are placed in humble circumstances, being numbered with the poor of this world.
For you, who are compassed about with so many cares, and who enjoy so few comforts.
For you, who are surprised at your many fiery trials, as though some strange thing had happened unto you.
For you, who are worried and harassed by Satan, who, as a roaring lion, goes about seeking whom he may devour.
For you, who are persecuted by the world, and hated by men for your Savior's sake.
For you, to whom Christ is precious--as He is to every one who truly believes in Him. 
God's care extends to every Christian . . .
  the young and the aged,
  the weak and the strong,
  the poor and the wealthy,
  the doubting and the confident. 
Believer, He cares for you!

Who is it that cares for us?

It is the Lord, the high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, whose name is holy;
who is so great--that we have no adequate conception of His greatness;
who is so good--that it is impossible fully to set forth His goodness;
who is so glorious--that no sinner can see His face and live.
It is He who created all things with His word, who governs all by His wisdom, and upholds all by His power.
His resources are infinite,
His compassion is exquisite, and
His patience is surprisingly great.
He enters into all the circumstances of His redeemed people, is ever present with them, and rejoices over them to do them good. The angels obey Him, the seraphim adore Him, and all creation glorifies Him!
But though He is so exalted, so holy, and so unspeakably great . . .
  He cares for you--as base as you are.
  He cares for you--as sinful as you are.
  He cares for you--as depressed and discouraged as you are.
He cares for you. He cares for you individually, and according to the circumstances in which you are placed.
What does He do? 
He cares for you!
He thinks of you!
He watches over you!
He sympathizes with you!
He feels the deepest interest in you!
He ever seeks your welfare!
He infallibly secures your good!

Your misery touches His heart,
your needs lie open to His view,
and your cries enter into His ears!
He cares for you more than for the proudest monarch on his throne!
He cares for you--and His care is CONSTANT! It is not fitful or occasional--but ever the same.
He cares for you--and His care is PATERNAL! It is the care of a father for his child--the child whom he tenderly loves, and for whose welfare he feels the deepest concern.
He cares for you, and His care is PERPETUAL! He will never care for you less than He does at present.
When old age weakens you,
when poverty pinches you,
when death appears just before you--
He will care for you as much as He does at this moment.
He cares for you--and His care is BENEFICIAL! It prevents innumerable evils--and secures the greatest possible amount of good. His care is more advantageous than the care of the kindest father, though that father were monarch of the mightiest empire, and possessed unbounded wealth. The care of God is of more value than the care of all His creatures combined.
He cares for you--but His care is MYSTERIOUSLY EXERCISED! It benefits us certainly--but secretly. It conceals itself behind the blessings it brings, and the evils it prevents.
He cares for you--and His care is SPECIAL! It is not the care which He has for the beasts which perish, or the unbelieving sinners who die under His frown.
He cares for you--and His care is PARTICULAR. It is care which extends to the very hairs of your heads, which, are all numbered--and to all the events and occurrences of your life, however minute or commonplace!
Beloved, here is our comfort. We may lose the care of an earthly relative or dear friend by death--but the Lord ever lives; and while He lives, He . . .
  ever loves us,
  thoroughly knows us, and
  never ceases to care for us!
Here is the ground of our confidence for the future. We know not where we shall be, nor what we shall be--for we know not what a day may bring forth. But this we know, that God will care for us, and, caring for us--He will fulfill His precious promises to us.
If God cares for us, then . . .
   let us cast all our cares upon Him;
   let us live in daily fellowship with Him;
   let us seek all our supplies from Him.
If God cares for us--let us not dishonor Him by nursing our doubts, or encouraging our fears--but let us trust in Him at all times, for . . .
  His love is true,
  His care is constant, and
  His knowledge is perfect.
We shall never be without a divine friend--however trying our circumstances may be. We shall never be without a divine guide--however perplexing or difficult our path may be. The care of God is more than the care of all the angelic hosts. If the care of God is not sufficient to preserve, supply, and satisfy us--then nothing is.
May the Lord help me to believe this precious truth, to realize it daily, and to pass through the present world under the impression, "I am the object of God's tender, paternal, and ceaseless care!"

"Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you. He will never let the righteous fall!" Psalm 55:22

No Christian Is Greater Than His Prayer Life

No Christian Is Greater Than His Prayer Life

~Leonard Ravenhill~

The church has many organizations, but few agonizers; many who pay, but few who pray; many resters, but few wrestlers; many who are enterprising, but few who are interceding. People who are not praying are playing; the people who are not praying are straying.

A sinning man stops praying, a praying man stops sinning.

The pulpit can be a shop window to display one's talents; the prayer closet allows no showing off.

Watch and pray, or you will rust and decay.

Two preequisites of dynamic Christian living are vision and passion, and both of these are generated in the prayer closet. The ministry of preaching is open to a few. The ministry of praying is open to every child of God.

Don't mistake action for unction, commotion for creation, and rattles for revivals.

The secret of praying is praying in secret. A worldly Christian will stop praying and a praying Christian will stop worldliness.

When we pray, God listens to our heartbeat. Hannah's "lips" moved, but her voice was not heard (1 Samuel 1:12-13). When we pray in the Spirit, there are groanings which cannot be uttered (Romans 8:26).

Tithes may build a church, but tears will give it life. That is the difference between the modern church and the early church. Our emphasis is on paying, theirs was on praying. When we have paid, the place is taken. When they had prayed, the place was shaken (Acts 4:31).

In the matter of effective praying, never have so many left so much to so few. Brethren, let us pray.

No Man - I don't care how colossal his intellect - No man is greater than his prayer life.

Prayer: Power of Another World

Right at this moment a phenomenon, spiritual in character, is happening - in a place I could name, but dare not. Fifteen men, feared by demons, envied by angels, wondered at by man, are committed to a Spirit-designed assignment. These stalwart men of faith send out no prayer letters, solicit no funds and resolutely refuse to let their names be published. Their vigil is without precedent.

They have bought "gold tried in the fire." They have "eyes anointed with [divine] eye salve." Their souls are drenched with Calvary love. They are girded with might in the inner man by the Holy Spirit. How else could they have spent, asthey have done, more than hundreds of consecutive nights of prayer for revival?

This is no prayer marathon, no itch for records - just passion for the lost. Such men are our modern Patons, Brainerds and Bounds.

In the deeper dimensions of prayer, in my opinion this is the deepest: intercession.

"Prayer is the simplest form of speech that infant lips can try." said James Montgomery.

True enough. But it is also so vast that it outranges all speech and exhausts every vocabulary. Eloquence is no value.

Moses stammered, but got prayer answered. Hannah opened not her lips, but triumphed in her intercession.

Can anyone with spiritual insight doubt that Hannagh's problem - barrenness - is ours today? If our altars areempty, what sense is there in our gloating over our Sundayschool statistics, our colossal missionary pledges and our rally efforts?

Take barren Rachel. Obviously Jacob loved Rachel more than he loved Leah. She was beautiful to behold and doubtless loeaded with jewels, as the custom of the day way. But these, or even Jacob's spendid devotion, offered no comfort. The "women's delight" was with Leah, for she had four laughing lads about her skirts. Men mockedand womenshot out the lip at unfruitful Rachel.

I can imagine this forlorn woman met her husband one morning, her hair disheveled, her eyes more red with weeping than ever Leah's had been, and her voice course with groanings. Flinging herself at the feet of her Lord, she cried with a piercing cry, "Give me children, or else I die!"

Oh, for thousands of Christians in America to cry this same petition. Oh, for thousands of pastors to be heart-broken about barren altars.

It is true that science has alleviated some of the suffering our mothers knew in childbirth. But science will never shrink the long slow months needed for child formation. As the  coming babe encumbers the body of the mother, so the growing "body" of revivaland soul-ravail dislocates the church.

As a mother-to-be wearies moreas the time of the birth draws near, often spending sleepless but not tearless nights - so the lamps of the sanctuary burn midnight oil while distressed, sin-carrying intercessors pour out their soulsfor a nation's iniquities.

As an expectant mother often loses desire for food in the interests of the one she will bear and denies herself certain things- even so a denial of food and consuming loveto lie quiet before the Lord seizes believers shamed by the barrenness of the church.

As women in pregnancy hide from public gaze  (or used to), as the time of deliverance draws near - so those in travail of soul shun publicity to seek the face of a holy God.

Revival comes as a result of the cleansed section of the church bent and bowed in supplication and intercession. Sickened at the sight of perishing millions, they wait - perhaps days, weeks, months, in some cases (as with the fifteen mentioned) years - until the Spirit moves upon and through them; until heaven opens in revival blessing.

Let us not forget that women of the Bible who once werebarren later brought forth some of its noblest children, Sarah,barrenuntil ninety years of age, brought forth Isaac. Rachel's cutting cry, "Give me children or I die!" was rewarded with the gift of Joseph - who in turn delivered a nation.

Manoah's barren wife gave Israel Samson, who too was a nation's deliverer. Hannah, sobbing, ignored the critical Eli, prayed - and gave the nation the prophet Samuel. The barren and widowed Ruth found mercy and bare Abed, who begat Jesse, the father of David, of whose line came our Saviour. Of Elizabeth, "well stricken in years," came John the Baptist - of whom Jesus said, "Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater ..."

Shame of childlessness provoked these women. But what mighty sons they bore!

For the present failure in the church the most pathetic excuse is that we are barren of money. Rubbish! We lack the supernatural!

E. M. Bounds was right in saying that when God wants to do a job He looks for a man. "We are God's method. What the Church needs today is men whom the Holy Spirit can use - men of prayer."

Elijah was not an angel, nor was he sired by a seraphim. Elijah was not a demi-god. The divine record states that Elijah was a man - "a man of like passions as we are."

God had said that with a worm He would thresh the mountains (Isaiah 41:15), and in Elijah He did it. (Any worms around today?)

What was it that made Elijah, you ask? Faith made him all he became. And faith will do the same for us.

The resources that Elijah knew are available still - plus the finished work of the Cross and the mighty power of the Holy Spirit.

We are not half-serious enough about the spiritual peril of millions. We are only "half there" if we merely want power to get a message over. Or to keep clean from sin.

What about stopping hell's legions?

How about invading heathen darkness?

Is it too much to believe that the Lord will endue men with a deep baptism with the Holy Spirit for this "end time" ministry that - even as Jerusalem trembled under the God-intoxicated menfrom the upper room in a matter of a few days - will shake nations in a matter of weeks?

We must repent of our unbelief - weep over our dryness - and take time to be holy.

About fifty years ago an attempt was made to assassinate Van Plehve, the Czarist Prime Minister. The plot failed, and Sazanov, the leader, was sent to prison camp, one of the worst of its kind in Siberia. Prisoners there were flogged unmercifully. Sazanov schemed to show this crass wickedness to the world. Finally he hit upon a plan. When the guards were relaxed, heseized a can of kerosene, drenched himself with it and then set himself alight - so that the world gazing onone human torch might see past him to the incredible sufferings of his comrades.

All that for communism!

We Christians are not asked to burn like that. But we are offered the change of becoming "a living sacrifice," of wielding a weapon of faith that will bring down onthis spiritually stagnant age the power of another world.

Elijah prayed and the fire fell. He prayed and the people fell. He prayed again and the rain fell.

Brethren, let us pray, and let it be a prayer of intercession.

Worthy Sayings of Great Christians

Worthy Sayings of Great Christians

I don't want the world to define God for me. I want the Holy Spirit to reveal God to me.

~A. W. Tozer~
______________________

To want a thing and then to turn from it because we see that it is contrary to the will of God is to win a great battle on the way to spiritual-mindedness. To bring our desires to the Cross and show them to be nailed there with Christ is a beautiful thing. To be tempted and yet to glorify God in the midst of it is to honor Him where it counts.

Christian Songs/Poems of Praise and Worship

Old-Time Power

~Paul Rader~

We are gathered for Thy blessing,
We will wait upon our God;
We will trust in Him Who loved us,
And Who bought us with His blood.

Spirit, now melt and move
All of our hearts with love,
Breathe on us from above
With old time power.

We will glory in Thy power,
We will sing of wondrous grace;
In our midst, as Thou has promised,
Come, O come, and take Thy place.

Bring us low in prayer before Thee,
And with faith our souls inspire,
Till we claim, by faith, the promise
Of the Holy Spirit and fire.

The King's Business

~Elijah T. Cassel~

I am a stranger here within a foreign land;
My home is far away upon a golden strand;
Ambassador to be of realms beyond the sea,
I'm here on business for my King.

Refrain:

This is the message that I bring,
A message angels fain would sing:
"Oh, be ye reconciled,"
Thus saith my Lord and King,
"Oh, be ye reconciled to God."

This is the King's command: that all men, everywhere,
Repent and turn away from sin's seductive snare;
That all who will obey, with Him shall reign for aye,
And that's my business for my King.

My home is brighter far than Sharon's rosy plain,
Eternal life and joy throughout its vast domain;
My Sov'reign bids me tell how mortals there may dwell,
And that's my business for my King.

All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name

~ Edward Perronet~

All hail the power of Jesus' Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all;
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Sinners, whose love can never forget
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread  your trophies at His feet,
And crown Him Lord of all;
Go spread your trophies at His feet,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all;
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng,
We at His feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all;
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Crown Him, ye morning stars of light,
Who fixed this earthly ball;
Now hail the strength of  Israel's might,
And crown Him Lord of all,
Now hail the strength of Israel's might,
And crown Him Lord of All.

Hiding In Thee

~William O. Cushing~

O safe to the Rock that is higher than I,
My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly;
So sinful, so weary, Thine, Thine, would I be;
Thou blest "Rock of Ages," I'm hiding in Thee.

Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee,
Thou blest "Rock of Ages,"
I'm hiding in Thee.

In the calm of the noontide, in sorrow's lone hour,
In times when temptation casts o'er me its power;
In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea,
Thou blest "Rock of Ages," I'm hiding in Thee.

How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe,
I have fled to my refuge and breathed out my woe;
How often, when trials like sea billows roll,
Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul.
_______________________

Nothing Between My Soul and the Saviour

~Charles Albert Tindley~

Nothing between my soul and the Saviour,
Naught of this world's delusive dream;
I have renounced all sinful pleasure;
Jesus is mine, there's nothing between.

Nothing between my soul and the Saviour,
So that His blessed face may be seen;
Nothing preventing the least of His favor,
Keep the way clear! Let nothing between.

Nothing between, like worldly pleasure;
Habits of life, though harmless them seem,
Must not my heart from Him e'er sever;
He is my all, there's nothing between.

Nothing between, like pride or station;
Self-life or friends shall not intervene;
Though it may cost me much tribulation,
I am resolved; there's nothing between.

Nothing between, e'en many hard trials,
Though the whole world against me convene;
Watching with prayer and much self-denial,
I'll triumph at last, with nothing between.
