THURSDAY PRAYER SERVICE

328 Blest Be the Tie that Binds

1

Blest be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love;

The fellowship of kindred minds

Is like to that above.

2

Before our Father’s throne

We pour our ardent prayers;

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,

Our comforts and our cares.

3

We share our mutual woes,

Our mutual burdens bear;

And often for each other flows

The sympathizing tear.

4

When we asunder part

It gives us inward pain;

But we shall still be joined in heart,

And hope to meet again.

 

775 Joy in My Heart

1

I have the joy, joy, joy, joy

Down in my heart, Down in my heart

Down in my heart,

I have the joy, joy, joy, joy

Down in my heart, Down in my heart to stay.

2

Ihave the peace that passeth understanding

Down in my heart, Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

I have the peace that passeth understanding,

Down in my heart, Down in my heart to stay.

3

I have the love of Jesus, love of Jesus,

Down in my heart, Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

I have the love of Jesus, love of Jesus,

Down in my heart, Down in my heart to stay.

4

For there is therefore now no condemnation,

Down in my heart, Down in my heart,

Down in my heart,

For there is therefore now no condemnation,

Down in my heart, Down in my heart today.

 

534 ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

1

‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,

Just to take Him at His word,

Just to rest upon His promise,

Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord.”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!

How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!

O for grace to trust Him more!

2

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,

Just to trust His cleansing blood,

Just in simple faith to plunge me

‘Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!

How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!

O for grace to trust Him more!

3

Yes, ‘tis sweet to trust in Jesus,

Just from sin and self to cease,

Just from Jesus simply taking

Life and rest and joy and peace.

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!

How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!

O for grace to trust Him more!

4

I’m so glad I learned to trust Him,

Precious Jesus, Saviour, Friend,

And I know that He is with me,

Will be with me to the end.

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!

How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!

O for grace to trust Him more!
