Begin My Tongue, Some Heavenly Theme (Hymn 134)
1. Begin, my tongue, some heav’nly theme,
And speak some boundless thing,
The mighty works, or mightier name
Of our eternal King.
2. Tell of His wondrous faithfulness,
And sound His pow’r abroad;
Sing the sweet promise of His grace,
And our redeeming God.
3. His very word of grace is strong
As that which built the skies;
The voice that rolls the stars along
Speaks all the promises.
4. O might I hear Thy heav’nly tongue
But whisper, “Thou art Mine,”
Those gentle words should raise my song
To notes almost divine.
Words: Isaac Watts, 1707
Music: from Henry W. Greatorex's Collection, Boston, 1851
Vocalists: Jaz Hoffman, Steve Lively, Philip Webb

2. Where dost Thou, dear Shepherd, resort with Thy sheep,
To feed them in pastures of love?
Say, why in the valley of death should I w...
Love Incarnate (Hymn 257)
. With a pray’r You fed the hungry,
with a cry You stilled the storm;
With a look You had compassion
on the desp’rate and forlorn.
With a touch You healed the leper,
with a shout You raised the dead;
With a word expelled the demons,
with a blessing broke the bread.
My Hiding Place (Hymn 191)
1. Against the God who rules the sky I fought with hands uplifted high;
Despised the mention of His grace, too proud to seek a hiding place!
But an eternal counsel ran: “Almighty love, arrest that man!”
I felt the arrows of disgrace and found I had no hiding place.
My Jesus is my hidi...
