1
God, we praise Thee for Thy mercy,
’Tis so great and so profound!
In our weakness and our failures;
With its greatness it abounds.
We adore Thee! we adore Thee!
With such mercy we’ve been crowned!

2
How we marvel at this mercy
So far-reaching and so vast!
It has reached us, e’en the sinners,
And will ever hold us fast.
From this mercy, from this mercy,
What can cause us to be cast?
3
For Thy mercy we are grateful,
’Tis so rich, so plenteous!
Thru Thy mercy in redemption,
Thou hast richly favored us.
If without this, if without this,
How could we be favored thus?
4
Oh, Thy mercy, so inspiring!
Gentle, tender, dear and sweet!
With Thy patience and Thy kindness,
Us in all our need it meets.
It we treasure, it we treasure,
Nothing can with it compete.
5
Father, we enjoy Thy mercy,
Ever fresh and ever new;
Every morning shed upon us,
It refreshes as the dew.
How we taste it! how we taste it!
Giving Thee the praises due.
6
We can never cease to praise Thee,
As Thy mercy e’er endures;
All Thy grace and all Thy favor,
Ever for us it secures.
Trusting in it, trusting in it,
Thy sure mercy us assures.

1
Jesus, our wonderful Shepherd
Brought us right out of the fold
Into His pasture so plenteous,
Into His riches untold.

Chorus
Glorious church life,
Feasting from such a rich store!
Here where we’re dwelling in oneness
God commands life evermore

2
 In the divisions He sought us,
Weary and famished for food;
Into the good land He brought us,
Oh, to our spirit how good!
3
Jesus Himself is our pasture,
He is the food that we eat;
We as His sheep are fed richly
Each time, whenever we meet.
4
Dwell we here on a high mountain,
Wet with the morning-fresh dew,
Slaking our thirst at the fountain,
Water so living and new.
5
Christ is our rest and enjoyment,
Here we have nothing to fear;
Here all the sheep dwell securely,
Kept by His presence so dear.

1
 In tenderness He sought me,
Weary and sick with sin,
And on His shoulders brought me
Into His flock again.
While angels in His presence sang
Until the courts of heaven rang.

Chorus
Oh, the love that sought me!
Oh, the blood that bought me!
Oh, the grace that brought me to the flock,
Wondrous grace that brought me to the flock!

2
He washed the bleeding sin-wounds,
And poured in oil and wine;
He whispered to assure me,
“I’ve found thee, thou art Mine:”
I never heard a sweeter voice,
It made my aching heart rejoice.
3
He pointed to the nail-prints,
For me His blood was shed;
A mocking crown so thorny,
Was placed upon His head:
I wondered what He saw in me,
To suffer such deep agony.
4
 I’m sitting in His presence,
The sunshine of His face,
While with adoring wonder
His blessings I retrace.
It seems as if eternal days
Are far too short to sound His praise.
5
So while the hours are passing,
All now is perfect rest;
I’m waiting for the morning,
The brightest and the best,
When He will call us to His side,
To be with Him, His spotless Bride.

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.

Chorus
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.
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.
4
 I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

1
To Jerusalem we’ve come,
We are through with Babylon,
We have gathered to be one,
  O glory be to God!
Of the teachings we’re bereft,
All opinions we have left,
Spirit from the soul is cleft,
  In the local churches now.

Chorus
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We are all in one accord
For the building of the Lord.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We are living in the local churches now!

2
That recovery may proceed
Real priests are what we need—
Those who live in Christ indeed,
O glory be to God!
Saturated with the Lord,
They have Christ as their reward.
These the building work afford
In the local churches now.
3
And the kingship we must see
With divine authority—
To this rule we’ll all agree,
O glory be to God!
To the Spirit we’ll submit
For the church’s benefit—
This is His prerequisite
In the local churches now.
4
We the altar must obtain,
Have our all upon it lain.
The burnt-offering must be slain,
O glory be to God!
This we never should dispute,
For the church be absolute,
All that’s otherwise uproot
In the local churches now.
5
The foundation now is laid—
O what glory doth pervade!
We are all with joy arrayed,
O glory be to God!
Let us raise a mighty shout—
They will hear us far without,
And the enemy we’ll rout
In the local churches now.

1
How faithful and trustworthy too,
My Father God, art Thou;
The universe and all therein
Thy faithfulness avow.

Chorus
How stedfast is Thy faithfulness!
For this I worship Thee;
It is established in the heav’n,
And ever stands for me.

2
No turning shadow could there be,
Nor any change with Thee;
As Thou hast been, and now Thou art,
Forever Thou wilt be.
3
Thy word, as certain as Thyself,
Can never pass away;
Though heav’n and earth shall disappear,
Thy word abides for aye.
4
Thy gifts without repentance are,
Thy calling is the same;
Thy grace forever lasting is,
Thy mercy as Thy name.
5
Thy word with Thine own faithfulness
A surety is to me;
By it, with Thy salvation true,
I have the certainty.
6
If, due to self, I trust Thee not,
Yet Thou art faithful still;
Thou never canst deny Thyself,
Thy word Thou shalt fulfill.
7
As Thou art faithful to perform
Thy promise and Thy call;
So, feeding on Thy faithfulness,
I take Thyself withal.
8
The rainbow round about Thy throne
Thy faithfulness declares;
This attribute forevermore
The holy city bears.

1
I’ve turned my back upon the world
With all its idle pleasures,
And set my heart on better things,
On higher, holier treasures;
No more its glitter and its glare,
And vanity shall blind me;
I’ve crossed the separating line,
And left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
I’ve crossed the separating line,
And left the world behind me.

2
I’ve left the old sad life of sin,
Its follies all forsaken;
My standing place is now in Christ,
His holy vows I’ve taken;
Beneath the standard of the cross
The world henceforth shall find me;
I’ve passed in Christ from death to life,
And left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
I’ve passed in Christ from death to life,
And left the world behind me.
3
My soul shall ne’er return again
Back to its former station
For here alone is perfect peace,
And rest from condemnation;
I’ve made exchange of masters now,
The vows of glory bind me,
And once for all I’ve left the world,
Yes, left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
And once for all I’ve left the world,
Yes, left the world behind me.
4
My choice is made forevermore,
I want no other Savior;
I ask no purer happiness
Than His sweet love and favor;
My heart is fixed on Jesus Christ,
No more the world shall blind me;
I’ve crossed the Red Sea of His death,
And left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
I’ve crossed the Red Sea of His death,
And left the world behind me.

1
Drink! A river pure and clear that’s flowing from the throne;
Eat! The tree of life with fruits abundant, richly grown;
Look! No need of lamp nor sun nor moon to keep it bright, for
Here there is no night!

Do come, oh, do come,
Says Spirit and the Bride:
Do come, oh, do come,
Let him that heareth, cry.
Do come, oh, do come,
Let him who thirsts and will
Take freely the water of life!

2
Christ, our river, Christ, our water, springing from within;
Christ, our tree, and Christ, the fruits, to be enjoyed therein,
Christ, our day, and Christ, our light, and Christ, our morningstar:
Christ, our everything!
3
We are washing all our robes the tree of life to eat;
“O Lord, Amen, Hallelujah!”—Jesus is so sweet!
We our spirits exercise, and thus experience Christ.
What a Christ have we!
4
Now we have a home so bright that outshines the sun,
Where the brothers all unite and truly are one.
Jesus gets us all together, Him we now display
In the local church.

1
What He is: He’s the Father.
He’s the everlasting Father.
He’s the firstborn of creation.
He’s the One who lives inside of me.
He’s the Father! Wonderful!

2
What He is: He’s the river.
He’s the mighty flowing river.
He waters me in a desert land.
He’s my hiding place; He is our man.
He’s the river! Wonderful!
3
What He is: He’s the vine tree.
He’s the branch, the root of Jesse.
He’s the tree of life: we have the right
To eat of Him and have His life.
He’s the vine tree! Wonderful!
4
What He is: He’s the Shepherd.
He’s the lamb of God, the he-goat.
We rest and feed in the pasture land.
We strike the blood and eat the lamb.
He’s the Shepherd! Wonderful!
5
What He is: He’s the Spirit.
He’s the all-inclusive Spirit.
He’s our everything; He’s our all in all.
He gives life to us whene’er we call.
He’s the Spirit! Wonderful!
6
What He is: He’s a Person.
He’s a real and living Person.
He is living now inside of us.
This Person is so glorious.
He’s a Person! Wonderful!
7
What He is: He’s the Body;
He’s the fulness of the Godhead;
He’s the center of the Father’s plan,
Christ and the church, the one new man.
He is wonderful, wonderful.
He is wonderful, wonderful.
He is wonderful, wonderful.

1
Father God, Thou art the source of life.
We, Thy sons, are Thine expression;
In Thy name, our dear possession.
Father God, Thou art the source of life.
In Thy life, in Thy life,
We have oneness in Thy life.
In Thy life, in Thy life,
In Thy life, O Father, we are one.

2
How we thank Thee that Thy holy Word
With Thy nature, saturates us;
From the world it separates us.
Thank Thee, Father, for Thy holy Word.
Through Thy Word, through Thy Word,
We have oneness through Thy Word.
Through Thy Word, through Thy Word,
Through Thy holy Word we’re all made one.

3
Oh, the glory of the Triune God!
We’re His sons, oh, what a blessing!
We His glory are expressing—
Oh, the glory of the Triune God!
In Thy glory, in Thy glory,
In Thy glory we are one.
In Thy glory, in Thy glory,
In Thy glory we are all made one!
