Doxology : Praise God from whom all blessings flow
O God, our help in ages past
Christ the Lord is risen today
All hail the power of Jesus' name
When I survey the wondrous cross
From Greenland's icy mountains
We are climbing Jacob's ladder
Amazing grace
A charge to keep I have
My faith looks up to thee
Rock of ages
Jesus, lover of my soul
How firm a foundation
Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing
Blest be the tie that binds
Just as I am
Fairest Lord Jesus
Gloria Patri
A mighty fortress is our God
'Tis midnight and on Olive's brow
Oh happy day
The church in the wildwood
Savior, like a Shepherd lead us
Nearer, my God, to thee
Abide with me
Holy, holy, holy
Sweet hour of prayer
Jesus loves me
The solid rock
For the beauty of the earth
He leadeth me
Shall we gather at the river
Lead, kindly light
In the sweet by and by
Tell me the old, old story
The church's one foundation
What a friend we have in Jesus
Praise him, praise him
Near the cross
Christ for the world we sing
More love to thee
Pass me not, o gentle Savior
Rescue the perishing
Onward Christian soldiers
Let the lower lights be burning
Faith of our fathers
I need thee every hour
Blessed assurance
I gave my life for thee
When morning gilds the skies
It is well with my soul
Crown him with many crowns
Christ arose
Wonderful words of life
Take my life and let it be
The ninety and the nine
I love to tell the story
To God be the glory
There is a green hill far away
True hearted, whole hearted
Softly and tenderly
Bring in the sheaves [that is, Bringing in the sheaves]
'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
God be with you
Standing on the promises
Trust and obey
Breathe on me, breath of God
Dear Lord and Father of mankind
Leaning on the everlasting arms
More about Jesus
When they ring the golden bells
Take time to be holy
When the roll is called up yonder
God of our fathers
We gather together
Open my eyes that I may see
We've a story to tell
When the saints go marching in
Count your blessings
There is power in the blood
Just a closer walk with thee
God will take care of you
The Lord bless you and keep you
Lord, I want to be a Christian
Were you there
Have thine own way, Lord
Joyful, joyful, we adore thee
I would be true
In the garden
The old rugged cross
Brighten the corner where you are
This is my Father's world
Great is thy faithfulness
Are ye able
Love lifted me
Precious Lord, take my hand
He lives
Beyond the sunset
How great thou art.
