The Lily of the Valley

 

I have found a friend in Jesus, 

He’s everything to me, 

He’s the fairest of ten thousand 

to my soul; the Lily of the Valley, 

in Him alone I see all I need 

to cleanse and make me fully whole.  

In sorrow He’s my comfort; 

in trouble, He’s my stay; 

He tells me every care on Him to roll.

Hallelujah!  He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star; He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

 

He all my grief has taken, 

and all my sorrows borne; 

in temptation, He’s my strong and mighty Tow’r; I have all for Him forsaken, 

and all my idols torn from my heart 

and now He keeps me by His pow’r. 

Though all the world forsake me, 

and Satan tempts me sore, 

through Jesus I shall safely read the goal; 

Hallelujah!  He’s the Lily of the Valley, 

the Bright and Morning Star; 

He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

 

He will never, never leave me, 

nor yet forsake me here, 

while I live by faith and do His blessed will;

 a wall of fire about me, 

I’ve nothing now to fear, 

with His manna He 

my hungry soul shall fill.

Then sweeping up to glory, 

to see His blessed face, 

where rivers of delight shall ever roll.

Hallelujah!  He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star; He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

 

SCRIPTURE

Matthew 25:31 – 46

 

When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all his angels are with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 The people of every nation will be gathered in front of him. He will separate them as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right but the goats on his left. 34 Then the king will say to those on his right, Come, my Father has blessed you! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. 35 I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me into your home. 36 I needed clothes, and you gave me something to wear. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.

37 Then the people who have Gods approval will reply to him, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or see you thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you as a stranger and take you into our homes or see you in need of clothes and give you something to wear? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you? 40 The king will answer them, I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you did for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did for me.

41 Then the king will say to those on his left, Get away from me! God has cursed you! Go into everlasting fire that was prepared for the devil and his angels! 42 I was hungry, and you gave me nothing to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger, and you didnt take me into your homes. I needed clothes, and you didnt give me anything to wear. I was sick and in prison, and you didnt take care of me. 44 They, too, will ask, Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or as a stranger or in need of clothes or sick or in prison and didnt help you?

45 He will answer them, I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you failed to do for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you failed to do for me. 46 These people will go away into eternal punishment, but those with Gods approval will go into eternal life.

HYMN – Coke 201

Work, For the Night is Coming

 

Work, for the night is coming, 

Work, thro’ the morning hours;

Work while the dew is sparkling,

Work ‘mid springing flow’rs;

Work when the day grows brighter,

Work in the glowing sun;

Work, for the night is coming,

When our work is done!

 

Work, for the night is coming,

work thro’ the sunny noon; 

fill brightest hours with labor, 

rest comes sure and soon.  

Give ev’ry flying minute 

something to keep in store: 

work, for the night is coming,

when we work no more.

 

Work, for the night is coming, 

under the sunset skies; 

while their bright tints are glowing, 

work, for daylight flies.  

Work till the last beam fadeth, 

fadeth to shine no more; 

work while the night is dark’ning, 

when our work is o’er.

HYMN – Coke 233

Love Lifted Me

 

I was sinking deep in sin

Far from the peaceful shore,

Very deeply stained within,

Sinking to rise no more,

But the Master of the sea 

heard my despairing cry,

from the waters lifted me,

now safe am I.

Love lifted me!  Love lifted me!

When nothing else could help, 

love lifted me!

Love lifted me!  Love lifted me!

When nothing else could help, 

love lifted me!

 

All my heart to Him I give, 

ever to Him I’ll cling,

In His blessed presence live,

Every His praises sing,

Love so mighty and so true,

Merits my soul’s best songs

Faithful, loving service, too

To Him belongs.

Love lifted me!  Love lifted me!

When nothing else could help, 

love lifted me!

Love lifted me!  Love lifted me!

When nothing else could help, 

love lifted me!

 

Souls in danger, look above

Jesus completely saves.

He will lift you by His love,

Out of the angry waves.

He’s the Master of the sea,

Billows His will obey,

He, your Savior, wants to be,

Be saved today!

Love lifted me!  Love lifted me!

When nothing else could help, 

love lifted me!

Love lifted me!  Love lifted me!

When nothing else could help, 

love lifted me!
