#367 Now All the Vault of Heaven Resounds

Now all the vault of Heaven resounds,

In praise of love that still abounds.

Christ has triumphed! He is living!

Sing choirs of angels loud and clear,

Repeat their song of glory here.

Christ has triumphed! He is living!

Alleluia, alleluia alleluia.

Eternal is the gift he brings.

Therefore our heart with rapture sings.

Christ has triumphed! He is living!

Now still he comes to give us life,

And by His presence stills all strife.

Christ has triumphed! He is living!

Alleluia, alleluia alleluia.

Oh fill us Lord with dauntless love,

Set heart and will on things above.

That we conquer through your triumph.

Grant Grace sufficient for life’s day,

That by lives we truly say.

Christ has triumphed! He is living!

Alleluia, alleluia alleluia.

Adoring praises now we bring,

And with the heavenly blessed sing,

Christ has triumphed! Alleluia!

Be to the Father and our Lord,

To spirit blest most Holy God,

All the Glory never ending

Alleluia, alleluia alleluia.

Precious Lord

Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, let me stand,

I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.

Through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light,

Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.

When my way grows drear, precious Lord linger near,

When my life, is al-most gone.

Hear my cry, hear my call, hold my hand, lest I fall,

Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.

When the darkness appears, and the night draws near,

And the day is past and gone.

At the river I stand, guide my feet hold my hand,

Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.

Holy,Holy,Holy

Holy, holy holy Lord, God of power and might,

Heaven and Earth are filled with your glory,

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord,

Hosanna in the highest, Hosanna in the highest.

Big House

Come and go with me to my Father’s house,

Come and go with me to my Father’s house.

It’s a big big house, with lots and lots of room,

A big big table with lots and lots of food.

A big big yard where we can play football,

A big big house, it’s my Father’s house.

Hymn #384 That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright

That Easter Day with joy was bright;
The sun shone out with fairer light,
When to their longing eyes restored,
The apostles saw their risen Lord.

O Jesus king of gentleness,
With constant love our hearts possess;
To you our lips will ever raise,
The tribute of our grateful praise.

O Christ you are the Lord of all,
In this our Easter festival;
For you will be our strength and shield,
From every weapon death can wield.

All praise O risen Lord we give,
To you once dead but now alive;
To God the Father equal praise,
And God the Spirit now we raise.

Closing Hymn #825 Thine the Amen

Thine the amen thine the praise alleluias angels raise,
Thine the everlasting head thine the breaking of the bread;
Thine the glory thine the story thine the harvest then the cup,
Thine the vineyard then the cu is lifted up lifted up.

Thine the life eternally thine the promise let there be,
Thine the vision thine the tree all the Earth on bended knee;
Gone the nailing gone the railing gone the pleading gone the cry,
Gone the sighing gone the dying what was lost lifted high.

Thine the truly thine the yes thine the table thine the guest,
Thine the mercy all from thee thine the glory yet to be;
Then the ringing then the singing then the end of all the war,
Thine the living thine the loving evermore evermore.

Thine the kingdom thine the prize thine the wonderful surprise,
Thine the banquet then the praise then the justice of thy ways;
Thine the glory thine the story then the welcome to the least,
Then the wonder all increasing at thy feast at they feast.

Thine the glory in the night no more dying only light,
Thine the river thine the tree then the Lamb eternally;
Then the holy holy holy celebration jubilee,
Thine the splendor thine the brightness only thee only thee.

Hymn #363 Christ is Alive

Christ is alive, let Christians sing.
His cross stands empty to the sky.
Let streets and homes with praises ring,
In death His Love shall never die.

Christ is alive no longer bound,
To distant years in Palestine.
He comes to claim the hear and now,
And conquer every place and time.

Not throned afar, remotely high,
Untouched, unmoved by human pains,
But daily, in the midst of life,
Our Savior with the Father reigns.

In every insult, rift, and war,
Where color, scorn, or wealth divide,
He suffers still, yet loves the more,
And lives, though ever crucified.

Closing Hymn: “I Saw the Light” by Hank Williams

[Verse 1]
I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I wouldn’t let my dear savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord I saw the light

[Chorus]
I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

[Verse 2]
Just like a blind man I wandered along
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

[Chorus]
I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

[Verse 3]
I was a fool to wander and a-stray
Straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light

[Chorus]
I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light
