FACING A TASK UNFINISHED

[Verse 1]
Facing a task unfinished
That drives us to our knees
A need that, undiminished
Rebukes our slothful ease
We, who rejoice to know Thee
Renew before Thy throne
The solemn pledge we owe Thee
To go and make Thee known

[Verse 2]
Where other lords beside Thee
Hold their unhindered sway
Where forces that defied Thee
Defy Thee still today
With none to heed their crying
For life, and love, and light
Unnumbered souls are dying
And pass into the night

[Refrain]
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has power to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord

[Verse 3]
We bear the torch that flaming
Fell from the hands of those
Who gave their lives proclaiming
That Jesus died and rose
Ours is the same commission
The same glad message ours
Fired by the same ambition
To Thee we yield our powers

[Refrain]
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has power to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord

[Verse 4]
O Father who sustained them
O Spirit who inspired
Saviour, whose love constrained them
To toil with zeal untired
From cowardice defend us
From lethargy awake!
Forth on Thine errands send us
To labour for Thy sake

[Refrain]
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has power to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord {x2}

FAIREST LORD JESUS

[Verse 1]
Fairest Lord Jesus,
Ruler of all nature,
O Thou of God and man the Son
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honour,
Thou my soul’s glory, joy and crown.

[Verse 2]
Fair are the meadows,
Fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring:
Jesus is fairest, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

[Verse 3]
Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host:
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast.

[Verse 4]
Beautiful Saviour!
Lord of the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honour, Praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be thine!

FAITHFUL AND JUST

[Verse 1]
Oh Lord, You’re faithful and just,
In You I put my trust Mighty God,
everlasting Father,
Your Word, is faithful and true,
What You promised You will do. Oh Lord,
Your Word endures forever.

[Chorus]
You’re faithful, faithful,
And Your mercy never ends.
The world will pass away,
But Your words are here to stay.
You’re wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God,
Lord Jehovah, You are the great I Am.

FOR ALL YOU’VE DONE

[Verse 1]
My Saviour, Redeemer,
Lifted me from the miry clay,
Almighty, Forever,
I will never be the same,

[Pre Chorus]
Cause You came near,
From the everlasting,
To the world we live,
The Father’s only Son

[Chorus]
You lived, and You died
You rose again on high
You’ve opened the way,
For the world to live again,
Hallelujah, For all You’ve done

[Verse 1]
My Saviour, Redeemer,
Lifted me from the miry clay,
Almighty, Forever,
I will never be the same,

[Pre Chorus]
Cause You came near,
From the everlasting,
To the world we live,
The Father’s only Son

[Chorus]
You lived, and You died
You rose again on high
You’ve opened the way,
For the world to live again,
Hallelujah, For all You’ve done

[Pre Chorus]
Cause You came near,
From the everlasting,
To the world we live,
The Father’s only Son

[Chorus]
You lived, and You died
You rose again on high
You’ve opened the way,
For the world to live again,
Hallelujah, For all You’ve done

FOREVER GRATEFUL

[Verse 1]
You did not wait for me to draw near to You,
But You clothed Yourself with frail humanity.
You did not wait for me to cry out to You,
But You let me hear Your voice calling me.

[Chorus]
And I’m forever grateful to You.
I’m forever grateful for the cross;
I’m forever grateful to You,
That You came to seek and save the lost.

FROM THE SQUALOR

[Verse 1]
From the squalor of a borrowed stable,
by the Spirit and a vir – gin’s faith;

To the anguish and the shame of scandal,
came the Saviour of the human race!

[Verse 1b]
But the skies were filled with the praise of heaven,
shepherds listen as the angels tell

Of the Gift of God come down to man,
at the dawning of Im – man – u – el.

[Verse 2]
King of heaven now the Friend of sinners,
humble servant in the Fa – ther’s hands,

Filled with power and the Holy Spirit,
filled with mercy for the broken man.

[Verse 2b]
Yes, He walked my road and He felt my pain,
joys and sorrows that I know so well;

Yet His righteous steps give me hope a – gain
I will follow my Im – man – u – el!

[Verse 3]
Through the kisses of a friend’s betrayal,
He was lifted on a cru – el cross;

He was punished for a world’s transgressions,
He was suffering to save the lost.

[Verse 3b]
He fights for breath, He fights for me,
loosing sinners from the claims of hell;

And with a shout our souls are free
death defeated by Im – man – u – el!

[Verse 4]
Now He’s standing in the place of honour,
crowned with glory on the high – est throne,

Interceding for His own beloved
till His Father calls to bring them home!

[Verse 4b]
Then the skies will part as the trumpet sounds;
hope of heaven or the fear of hell;

But the Bride will run to His loving arms,
giving glory to Immanuel!
