I belong to Jesus; I am not my own;
All I have and all I am, shall be his alone.

    All I have and all I am, shall be his alone.

    Reigning in my inmost heart, over ev'rything.

I belong to Jesus, I am not my own.
I belong to Jesus, I am not my own.

    With his own most precious blood has my soul been bought.
    I belong to Jesus; He has died for me;
    I am his and he is mine through eternity.

    When the deathly waters dark round about me roll.

    With my precious Savior there in the glory land.

I belong to Jesus, I am not my own.
I belong to Jesus, I am not my own.

What Shall We Bring?

Words: Anon; Music: Sarah Brown

The wise may bring their learning,
The rich may bring their wealth,
And some may bring their greatness,
And some bring strength and health;
We, too, would bring our treasures
To offer to the King;
We have no wealth or learning:
What shall we children bring?

We'll bring him hearts that love him;
We'll bring him thankful praise,
And young souls meekly striving
To walk in holy ways:
And these shall be the treasures
We offer to the King,
And these are gifts that even
The poorest child may bring.

We'll bring the little duties
We have to do each day;
We'll try our best to please him,
At home, at school, at play:
And better are these treasures
To offer to the King
Than richest gifts without them;
Yet these a child may bring.

And better are these treasures
To offer to the King
Than richest gifts without them;
Yet these a child may bring.

Hail the King

Words: Joseph F. Cook; Music Sarah Brown
Percussion: Dennis Sheridan; Keyboard: Sarah Brown, Eric Morgeson

  1. Gentle Mary laid her child lowly in a manger;
    There he lay, the undefiled, to the world a stranger.
    Such a babe in such a place, can he be the Savior?
    Ask the saved of all the race who have found his favor.

Hail the King of glory!
Hail the King of glory!
Hail the King of glory!

  1. Angels sang about his birth, wise men sought and found him;
    Heaven's star shone brightly forth glory all around him.
    Shepherds saw the wondrous sight, heard the angels singing;
    All the plains were lit that night, all the hills were ringing.

Chorus

  1. Gentle Mary laid her child lowly in a manger;
    He is still the undefiled, but no more a stranger.
    Son of God of humble birth, beautiful the story;
    Praise his Name in all the earth,
    Hail the King, Hail the King of Glory
    Hail the King, Hail the King of Glory
    Hail the King, Hail the King of Glory

Chorus

He Loves Me Too

Words: Maria Straub; Music: Sarah Brown

  1. God sees the little sparrow fall, it meets his tender view;

He loves me too, he loves me too,
Because he loves the little things,
I know, I know he loves me too.

  1. He paints the lily of the field, perfumes each lily bell;
    If he so loves the little flow'rs, I know he loves me well.

Chorus

I am Jesus' Little Lamb

Words: Henrietta L. von Hayn; Music: Sarah Brown

I am Jesus' little lamb, ever glad at heart I am;
For my Shepherd gently guides me, knows my need, and well provides me,
Loves me ev'ry day the same, he even calls me by my name.

Day by day, at home, away, Jesus is my staff and stay.
When I hunger, Jesus feeds me, into pleasant pastures leads me;
When I thirst, he bids me go where the quiet waters flow.

Who so happy as I am, even now the Shepherd's lamb?
And when my short life is ended, by his angel host attended,
He shall fold me to his breast, there within his arms to rest.

Let the Children Come

Words: Jemima T. Luke; Music: Sarah Brown

  1. I think when I read that sweet story of old,
    When Jesus was here among men,
    How he called little children as lambs to his fold,
    I should like to have been with them then.

Let the little children come unto me.
Let the little children come unto me.

  1. I wish that his hands had been placed on my head,
    That his arms had been thrown around me,
    And that I might have seen his kind look when he said,
    "Let the little ones come unto Me."

Chorus

  1. Yet still to his footstool in prayer I may go,
    And ask for a share in his love;
    And if I now earnestly seek him below,
    I shall see him and hear him above.

Chorus

  1. In that beautiful place he is gone to prepare
    For all who are washed and forgiv'n;
    And many dear children are gathering there,
    For of such is the kingdom of heav'n.

Chorus

Jesus said, Jesus said, 'Let them come, let them come.'
He said 'Let them come to me.
Let the little ones come to me.'

Around the Throne

Words: Anne H. Shepherd; Music: Sarah Brown

  1. Around the throne of God in heav'n thousands of children stand,
    Children whose sins are all forgiven, a holy, happy band.
    In flowing robes of spotless white see ev'ry one arrayed;
    They are dwelling in everlasting light and joys that never fade.

And they sing "Glory, glory be to God, be to God on high.
Glory, glory be to God, be to God on high."

  1. What brought them to that world above, that heav'n so bright and fair,
    Where all is peace, and joy, and love; how came those children there?
    Because the Savior shed his blood to wash away their sin;
    They are bathed in that pure and precious flood, behold them white and clean.

Chorus

  1. On earth they sought the Savior's grace, on earth they loved his Name;
    So now they see his blessed face, and stand before the Lamb.

They sing glory, glory glory! They sing glory to the Lamb!

Chorus 2X

On earth they sought the Savior's grace, on earth they loved his Name;
So now they see his blessed face, and stand before the Lamb.

Yield Not To Temptation

Words: Horatio R. Palmer; Music: Sarah Brown
Guitar: Dan Newman; Dumbeg: Voce

  1. Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
    Each victory will help you some other to win;
    Fight manfully onward; dark passions subdue;
    Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

Ask the Savior to help you, comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you, He will carry you through.

  1. Shun evil companions; bad language disdain;
    God's name hold in reverence, nor take it in vain;
    Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true;
    Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

Chorus

  1. To him that o'ercometh God giveth a crown;
    Through faith we shall conquer, though often cast down;
    He who is the Saviour our strength will renew;
    Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

Chorus

Healing in the Wounds

Words: Johann Heerman; Music: Sarah Brown
Tibetan Bells: Peter Alexanian

  1. Jesus, grant that life and healing in Thy holy wounds I find,
    Every hour that I am feeling, pains of body and of mind.
    Should some evil thought within tempt my treacherous heart to sin,
    Show me the peril, and from sinning. Keep me before its first beginning.
  1. Should some lust or sharp temptation prove too strong for my flesh and blood,
    Let me think upon Thy Passion and the breach is soon made good.
    Or should Satan press me hard, let me then be on my guard,
    Saying, 'Christ for me was wounded,' let the tempter flee confounded.
  1. Every wound that pains or grieves me, by Thy stripes, Lord, is made whole;
    When I'm faint, Thy cross revives me, granting new life to my soul.
    Yea, Thy comfort renders sweet every bitter cup I meet;
    For Thy all atoning Passion has secured my soul's salvation.
  1. O my God, my Rock and Tower, grant that in Thy death I'll trust,
    Knowing death has lost his power since Thou trampled him in the dust.
    Savior, let Thine agony ever help and comfort me;
    When I die, be my Protection, Light and Life and Resurrection.
