Lyrics

Sing along with Harm

Beautiful Zion, built above

Beautiful Zion, built above
Beautiful city that I love
Beautiful gates of pearly white
Beautiful temple – God its light
He who was slain on Calvary
Opens those pearly gates for me.

Zion, Zion, lovely Zion
Beautiful Zion
Zion, city of our God!

Beautiful heav’n, where all is light
Beautiful angels clothed in white
Beautiful strains that never tire
Beautiful harps thru all the choir
There shall I join the chorus sweet,
Worshiping at the Savior’s feet.

Beautiful crowns on ev’ry brow
Beautiful palms the conq’rors show
Beautiful robes the ransomed wear
Beautiful all who enter there
Thither I press with eager feet
There shall my rest be long and sweet.

Come unto Jesus

Come unto Jesus, ye heavy laden,
careworn and fainting, by sin oppressed.
He’ll safely guide you unto that haven
where all who trust him may rest.

Come unto Jesus; He’ll ever heed you,
though in the darkness you’ve gone astray.
His love will find you and gently lead you
from darkest night into day.

Come unto Jesus; He’ll surely hear you,
if you in meekness plead for his love.
Oh, know you not that angels are near you
from brightest mansions above?

Come unto Jesus from ev’ry nation,
from ev’ry land and isle of the sea.
Unto the high and lowly in station,
ever he calls: “Come to me.”

Dear to the heart of the shepherd

Dear to the heart of the Shepherd,
dear are the sheep of his fold.
Dear is the love that he gives them,
dearer than silver or gold.

Dear to the heart of the Shepherd,
dear are his “other” lost sheep.
Over the mountains he follows,
over the waters so deep.

Out in the desert they wander,
hungry and helpless and cold.
Off to the rescue he hastens,
bringing them back to the fold.

Dear to the heart of the Shepherd,
dear are the lambs of his fold.
Some from the pastures are straying,
Hungry and helpless and cold.

See, the Good Shepherd is seeking,
seeking the lambs that are lost,
bringing them in with rejoicing,
saved at such infinite cost.

Dear to the heart of the Shepherd,
dear are the “ninety and nine”.
Dear are the sheep that have wandered
out in the desert to pine.

Hark! he is earnestly calling,
tenderly pleading today:
“Will you not seek for my lost ones,
off from my shelter astray?”

Green are the pastures inviting.
Sweet are the waters and still.
Lord, we will answer thee gladly,
“Yes, blessed Master, we will!

Make us thy true under-shepherds,
give us a love that is deep.
Send us out into the desert,
seeking thy wandering sheep.”

How great Thou art

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling/mighty thunder,
Thy pow’r thru-out the universe displayed!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

When thru the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze,

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin!

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!
