WHERE YOU THERE (when they crucified my Lord)

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

2. Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?

3. Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?

4. Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?
Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?

In Christ.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Refrain

Count your blessings,
name them one by one, Count your blessings,
see what God hath done! Count your blessings,
name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

Refrain

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings.
Wealth can never buy your reward in heaven,
nor your home on high.

Refrain

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

Refrain

Rev. Johnson Oatman Jr.

Do we count our blessings and name them one by one to see what the Lord has done for us?

In Christ.

DWELLING IN BEULAH LAND


Verse 1

Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling.
Then I know the sins of earth beset on every hand.
Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling.
None of these shall move me from Beulah Land.

Refrain

I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky.
I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry.
O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply,
For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.

Verse 2

Far below the storm of doubt upon the world is beating.
Sons of men in battle long the enemy withstand.
Safe am I within the castle of God’s Word retreating.
Nothing then can reach me—’tis Beulah Land.

Verse 3

Let the stormy breezes blow, their cry cannot alarm me;
I am safely sheltered here, protected by God’s hand.
Here the sun is always shining, here there’s naught can harm me.
I am safe forever in Beulah Land.

Verse 4

Viewing here the works of God, I sink in contemplation.
Hearing now His blessèd voice, I see the way He planned.
Dwelling in the Spirit here I learn of full salvation.
Gladly I will tarry in Beulah Land.

C Austin Miles

My Sunday School teacher when I was a young girl was an elderly spinster lady by the name of Mary McClenaghan (we had to call her Aunt Mary).  Now Aunt Mary wore her glasses half way down her nose so she could keep an eye on us young ones as well as the other children is other classes.  My Dad took Sunday School  in this Gospel hall also.  Well, one Sunday my Dad started his class off singing Beulah Land really loudly and the children were all clapping and stamping their feet and singing away quite happily , Aunt Mary was not amused to say the least, she looked at my Dad with a look only she knew how to give and continued to say "Mr Woods !!  If you cannot control the children in your care then I am afraid none of THEM will reach Beulah Land ", to which the whole of the Sunday School burst into laughter and after a few minutes Aunt Mary laughed too, this was the only time I ever saw a smile wrinkle on her face.  I remembered that event while looking for hymns and it made me chuckle to recall it so I thought I would share it with you all.  Aunt Mary went to be with the Lord about 40 years ago.

In Christ.

SHALL WE GATHER (at the river)

Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Refrain

Yes, we’ll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

Refrain

On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will talk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day.

Refrain

Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.

Refrain

At the smiling of the river,
Mirror of the Savior’s face,
Saints, whom death will never sever,
Lift their songs of saving grace.

Refrain

Soon we’ll reach the silver river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease;
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.

Refrain

Break forth O joyful heart



Break forth, break forth, O joyful heart,
And make His goodness known,
Who all thy life, though undeserved,
Such love to thee has shown.

Refrain

Break forth, break forth, O joyful heart,
Break forth, no longer silent be;
Break forth, break forth in grateful praise
To Him Who came to ransom Thee.

’Twas Jesus sought my wand’ring soul,
And with a shepherd’s care
He brought me kindly to His fold,
And still protects me there.

Refrain

He is my Advocate with God,
My Savior and my Friend,
His mercies new with every morn
Like balmy showers descend.

Refrain

My soul shall magnify the Lord,
My voice His love proclaim,
And every power within me join
To bless and praise His Name.

Refrain

Behold me standing at the door


Behold Me standing at the door,
And hear Me pleading evermore,
With gentle voice: oh, heart of sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

Refrain

Behold Me standing at the door,
And hear Me pleading evermore:
Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

I bore the cruel thorns for thee,
I waited long and patiently;
Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

Refrain

I would not plead with thee in vain;
Remember all My grief and pain;
I died to ransom thee from sin:
May I come in? May I come in?

Refrain

I bring thee joy from Heav’n above,
I bring thee pardon, peace, and love:
Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

Refrain

One of my favorite hymns. I lay my sins on Jesus.         


        1. I lay my sins on Jesus,
        The spotless Lamb of God;
        He bears them all and frees us
        From the accursed load.
        I bring my guilt to Jesus
        To wash my crimson stains
        White in His blood most precious
        Till not a spot remains.

        2. I lay my wants on Jesus,
        All fulness dwells in Him;
        He healeth my diseases,
        He doth my soul redeem.
        I lay my griefs on Jesus,
        My burdens and my cares;
        He from them all releases,
        He all my sorrows shares.

        3. I rest my soul on Jesus,
        This weary soul of mine;
        His right hand me embraces,
        I on His breast recline.
        I love the name of Jesus,
        Immanuel, Christ the Lord;
        Like fragrance on the breezes
        His name abroad is poured.

        4. I long to be like Jesus,
        Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
        I long to be like Jesus,
        The Father's holy Child.
        I long to be with Jesus
        Amid the heavenly throng
        To sing with saints His praises,
        To learn the angels' song.
Pro 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search a matter out.

Old Account Settled                    
          
There was a time on earth, when in the book of heaven
An old account was standing for sins yet unforgiven
My name was at the top, and many things below
I went unto the Keeper, and settled long ago

Chorus

Long ago
(down on my knees)
long ago
(I settled it all)
Yes, the old account was settled long ago
(hallelujah!)
And the record's clear today, for He washed my sins away
When the old account was settled long ago

[B][B](End Chorus)

[/B][/B]


The old account was large, and growing every day
For I was always sinning, and never tried to pay
But when I looked ahead, and saw such pain and woe
I said that I would settle, I settled long ago

Chorus


When in that happy home, my Savior's home above
I'll sing redemption's story, and praise Him for His love
I'll not forget that book, with pages white as snow
Because I came and settled, and settled long ago

Chorus


O sinner, trust the Lord, be cleansed of all your sin
For thus He hath provided for you to enter in
And then if you should live a hundred years below
Up there you'll not regret it, you settled long ago



I'm still looking for the full version of this on mp3.  Does anyone know where I can find it?

Shawn Atchison

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  Romans 10:9-10
