Track Name: I Was A Wandering Sheep
I was a wandering sheep, I did, did not love the fold.
I did not love my Shepherd’s voice, I would not be controlled.
I was a wayward child, I did not love my home.
I did not love my Father’s voice, I loved afar to roam.

The Shepherd sought His sheep, The Father sought His child.
They followed me o’er vale and hill, over deserts waste and wild.
They found me nigh to death, famished, faint and lone.
They bound me with the bands of love—the saved the wand’ring one.

Jesus is my Shepherd: It was He that loved my soul
It was He that washed me in His blood, and He that made me whole.
It was He that sought the lost, that found the wand’ring sheep,
It was He that brought me to the fold, and He that still doth keep.

I was a wandering sheep I would not be controlled
But now I love my shepherd’s voice, I love, I love the fold
I was a wayward child, I once preferred to roam,
But now I love my Father’s voice, I love, I love his home

Jesus is my shepherd is was he that saved my soul.
Track Name: Gloria Patri
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be.
Amen, amen.
Track Name: Make Me A Captive, Lord
Make me a captive, Lord, and then I shall be free.
Force me to render up my sword, and I shall conqueror be.
I sink in life’s alarms when by myself I stand.
Imprison me within Thine arms, and strong shall be my hand.

My heart is weak and poor until it master find.
It has no spring of action sure, it varies with the wind.
It cannot freely move till Thou has wrought its chain.
Enslave it with Thy matchless love, and deathless it shall reign.

My will is not my own till Thou hast made it Thine.
If it would reach a monarch’s throne, it must its crown resign.
It only stands unbent amid the clashing strife,
When on Thy bosom it has leant, and found in Thee its life.
Track Name: Lo! He Comes With Clouds Descending
Lo! He comes with clouds descending, once for favored sinners slain.
Thousand thousand saints attending, swell the triumph of His train.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! God appears on earth to reign.

Every eye shall now behold Him robed in dreadful majesty.
Those who set at naught and sold Him,
pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing,
deeply wailing, shall the true Messiah see.

Every island, sea, and mountain, Heav’n and earth, shall flee away.
All who hate Him must, confounded, hear the trump proclaim the day:
Come to judgment!
Come to judgment!
Come to judgment!
Come to judgment!
Come away!

Now redemption, long expected, see in solemn pomp appear.
All His saints, by man rejected, now shall meet Him in the air.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! see the day of God appear!

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee, high on Thine eternal throne.
Savior, take the power and glory, claim the kingdom for Thine own.
O come quickly! O come quickly! O come quickly, come!
Alleluiah, come Lord come! Alleluiah, come Lord come!
Track Name: Jesus Calls Us
Jesus calls us over the tumult of our life’s wild, restless, sea.
Day by day His sweet voice sounds, saying, “Christian, follow Me.”

Jesus calls us from the worship of the vain world’s golden store,
From each idol that would keep us, saying, “Christian, love Me more.”

In our joys and in our sorrows, days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures, “Christian, love Me more than these.”

Jesus calls us! By Thy mercies, Savior may we hear Thy call.
Give our hearts to Thine obedience, serve and love Thee best of all.
Track Name: Arise My Soul, Arise
Arise, my soul, arise; shake off thy guilty fears;
The bleeding sacrifice in my behalf appears:
Before the throne my surety stands,
Before the throne my surety stands,
My name is written on His hands.

He ever lives above, for me to intercede;
His all redeeming love, His precious blood, to plead:
His blood atoned for all our race,
His blood atoned for all our race,
And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

Five bleeding wounds He bears; received on Calvary;
They pour effectual prayers; they strongly plead for me:
“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry,
“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry,
“Nor let that ransomed sinner die!”

My God is reconciled; His pardoning voice I hear;
He owns me for His child; I can no longer fear:
With confidence I now draw nigh,
With confidence I now draw nigh,
And “Father, Abba, Father,” cry.
Track Name: Infant Holy, Infant Lowly
Infant holy, Infant lowly, for His bed a cattle stall.
Oxen lowing, little knowing, Christ the Babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging angels singing, noels ringing, tidings bringing:
Christ the Babe is Lord of all.

Flocks were sleeping, shepherds keeping vigil till the morning new.
Saw the glory, heard the story, tidings of a Gospel true.
Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow, praises voicing, greet the morrow:
Christ the Babe was born for you.
Track Name: Man Of Sorrows, What A Name
Man of Sorrows! what a name
For the Son of God, Who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
Full atonement can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;
"It is finished!" was His cry;
Now in heaven exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we'll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
Track Name: Rock Of Ages
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure.
Save from wrath and make me pure.

Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands.
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone.
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to the cross I cling.
Naked, come to Thee for dress.
Helpless look to Thee for grace.
Foul, I to the fountain fly.
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne.
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
Track Name: Comfort, Comfort Ye My People
Comfort, comfort ye My people,
Speak ye peace, thus saith our God;
Comfort those who sit in darkness,
Mourning ’neath their sorrow’s load;
Speak ye to Jerusalem
Of the peace that waits for them;
Tell her that her sins I cover,
And her warfare now is over.

For the herald’s voice is crying
In the desert far and near,
Bidding all men to repentance,
Since the kingdom now is here.
O that warning cry obey!
Now prepare for God a way!
Let the valleys rise to meet Him,
And the hills bow down to greet Him.
