    I know as long as can remember growing up in the church I've have always enjoyed singing beautiful hymns unto the Lord. I know there are others on here that enjoyed these beautiful hymns. Please feel free to post your favorites, this has always been one of mine... Brother Glen

    Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found;
    Was blind, but now I see.

    ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed.

    Through many dangers, toils and snares,
    I have already come;
    ’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
    And grace will lead me home.

    The Lord has promised good to me,
    His Word my hope secures;
    He will my Shield and Portion be,
    As long as life endures.

    Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,
    I shall possess, within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.

    The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
    The sun forbear to shine;
    But God, who called me here below,
    Will be forever mine.

    When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun,
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we’d first begun.

    "Beneath the Cross of Jesus"


    Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand,
    The shadow of a mighty rock within a weary land;
    A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
    From the burning of the noontide heat, and the burden of the day.

    Upon that cross of Jesus mine eye at times can see
    The very dying form of One Who suffered there for me;
    And from my stricken heart with tears two wonders I confess;
    The wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness
    .


    I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
    I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
    Content to let the world go by to know no gain or loss,
    My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross.

    Beneath the Cross of Jesus

    Beneath the cross of Jesus I gladly take my stand:
    The shadow of a mighty rock Within a weary land,
    A home within the wilderness, A rest upon the way,
    From the burning of the noon-tide heat And the burden of the day.

    Upon the cross of Jesus My eyes at times can see
    The very dying form of One Who suffered there for me;
    And from my smitten heart, with tears, Two wonders I confess---
    The wonders of His glorious love And my unworthiness.

    I take, O cross, they shadow For my abiding place;
    I ask no other sunshine than The sunshine of His face,
    Content to let the world go by, To know no gain or loss,
    My sinful self my only shame, My glory all the cross.

    ----Elizabeth C. Clephane, 1872

    Jesus, I am Resting, Resting

    Jesus! I am resting, resting
    In the joy of what Thou art;
    I am finding out the greatness
    Of Thy loving heart.
    Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee,
    And Thy beauty fills my soul,
    For, by Thy transforming power,
    Thou hast made me whole.

    Chorus
    Jesus! I am resting, resting
    In the joy of what Thou art;
    I am finding out the greatness
    Of Thy loving heart

    2. Oh, how great Thy loving kindness,
    Vaster, broader than the sea:
    Oh, how marvelous Thy goodness,
    Lavished all on me!
    Yes, I rest in Thee, Beloved,
    Know what wealth of grace is Thine,
    Know Thy certainty of promise,
    And have made it mine.

    3. Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus,
    I behold Thee as Thou art,
    And Thy love, so pure, so changeless,
    Satisfies my heart,
    Satisfies its deepest longings,
    Meets, supplies its every need,
    Compasseth me round with blessings,
    Thine is love indeed.

    4. Ever lift Thy face upon me,
    As I work and wait for Thee;
    Resting ’neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus,
    Earth’s dark shadows flee.
    Brightness of my Father’s glory,
    Sunshine of my Father’s face,
    Keep me ever trusting, resting,
    Fill me with Thy grace.

    Supposedly, "The Old Rugged Cross" was my maternal grandmother's favorite hymn.

    I still vaguely recall her funeral back in 1956 (I was 10 YO then.). The person who conducted her eulogy based his message on this hymn.

    Whether or not she was truly saved, I have no idea. During the last few years of her life, she stayed at our house. She mainly kept to herself---probably because she was suffering from the effects of dementia. [NOTE: This also happened to my own mother, "Mom-Mom's" oldest daughter.]

    Moreover, it'd be another ten years until Yours Truly was saved (April, 1966); thus I knew nothing about being a member of God's Family in 1956.

    The Old Ship of Zion

    I was standing by the banks of a river
    Looking out over lifes troubled seas
    When I saw an old ship that was sailing
    Is that the old ship of Zion I see

    It's hull was bent and battered
    From the storms of life I could see
    Waves were rough but that old ship kept sailing
    Is that the old ship of Zion I see

    At the stern of the ship was the captain
    I could hear as he called out my name
    Get on board It's the old ship of Zion
    It will never pass this way again

    As I step on board I'll be leaving
    All my troubles and trials behind
    I'll be safe with Jesus the captain
    Sailing out on the old ship of Zion

    We'll Work Till Jesus Comes

    O Land of rest for thee I sigh
    When shall the moment come
    When I shall lay this armor by
    and dwell in peace at home

    We'll work till Jesus comes
    We'll work till Jesus comes
    We'll work till Jesus comes
    and we'll be gathered home

    There are burdens here we all must bear
    With trouble pressing so
    There will be no sorrow over there
    On heaven's peaceful shore

    We'll work till Jesus comes
    We'll work till Jesus comes
    We'll work till Jesus comes
    and we'll be gathered home

    There is work on earth for me and you
    According to God's word
    and whatsoever work we do
    Should be done as to the Lord

    We'll work till Jesus comes
    We'll work till Jesus comes
    We'll work till Jesus comes
    and we'll be gathered home

    My hope is built on nothing less
    Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
    But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
    All other ground is sinking sand,
    All other ground is sinking sand.

    When darkness veils His lovely face,
    I rest on His unchanging grace;
    In every high and stormy gale,
    My anchor holds within the veil.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
    All other ground is sinking sand,
    All other ground is sinking sand.

    His oath, His covenant, His blood
    Support me in the whelming flood;
    When all around my soul gives way,
    He then is all my hope and stay.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
    All other ground is sinking sand,
    All other ground is sinking sand.

    When He shall come with trumpet sound,
    Oh, may I then in Him be found;
    Dressed in His righteousness alone,
    Faultless to stand before the throne.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
    All other ground is sinking sand,
    All other ground is sinking sand.

    The Lighthouse

    There's a lighthouse on the hillside that overlooks life's sea.
    When I'm tossed it sends out a light that I might see.
    And the light that shines in darkness now will safely lead me home,
    If it wasn't for the lighthouse, my ship would sail no more.



    Chorus
    And I thank God for The Lighthouse, I owe my life to Him.
    Jesus is The Lighthouse and from the rocks of sin,
    He has shown the light around me, so that I might clearly see.
    If it wasn't for The Lighthouse, Where would this ship be?

    Everyone that lives around us, says tear that old lighthouse down,
    The big ships don't sail this way anymore, ain't no use in it standing round.
    But then my mind goes back to that stormy night, when just in time I saw the light
    With the light from that old lighthouse, that stands there on the hill.



    Chorus
    And I thank God for The Lighthouse, I owe my life to Him.
    Jesus is The Lighthouse and from the rocks of sin,
    He has shown the light around me, so that I might clearly see.
    If it wasn't for The Lighthouse, Where would this ship be?

    My favorite of all time. They better sing this at my funeral. I have loved this since I was a little girl because on of my favorite preachers would always sing it before he preached. It was almost his theme song, and he could really sing it.

    I love On Eagle's Wings

    You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
    Who abide in His shadow for life,
    Say to the Lord, "My Refuge,
    My Rock in Whom I trust."

    And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
    And famine will bring you no fear;
    Under His Wings your refuge,
    His faithfulness your shield.

    And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    You need not fear the terror of the night,
    Nor the arrow that flies by day,
    Though thousands fall about you,
    Near you it shall not come.

    And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    For to His angels He's given a command,
    To guard you in all of your ways,
    Upon their hands they will bear you up,
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

    And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
    Bear you on the breath of dawn,
    Make you to shine like the sun,
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

    This hymn amongst many others has always touched me

    1. A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
      A wonderful Savior to me;
      He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
      Where rivers of pleasure I see.
      • Refrain:
        He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
        That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
        He hideth my life in the depths of His love,
        And covers me there with His hand,
        And covers me there with His hand.
    2. A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
      He taketh my burden away,
      He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved,
      He giveth me strength as my day.
    3. With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
      And filled with His fullness divine,
      I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God!
      For such a Redeemer as mine.
    4. When clothed with His brightness transported I rise
      To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
      His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,
      I’ll shout with the millions on high.
