Track Name: Blessed Hope
A lamp in the night
A song in time of sorrow
A great glad hope
That faith can ‘ever borrow
To gild each day
With glory of the ‘morrow

Is the hope of the coming of the Lord
Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord
How the aching heart it cheers
How it glistens through our tears
Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord

A star in the sky
A beacon bright to guide us
An anchor that holds
When the storms betide us
A refuge for the soul
In quiet He hides us

Is the hope of the coming of the Lord
Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord
How the aching heart it cheers
How it glistens through our tears
Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord

A call of command
A trumpet clearly sounding
To make us bold with evil surrounding
And stir the sluggish heart
And keep in good abounding

A word from the One
To all our hearts the dearest
A parting word
To keep Him the nearest
Of all His words
The sweetest, brightest, clearest

Is the hope of the coming of the Lord
Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord
How the aching heart it cheers
How it glistens through our tears
Blessed hope of the coming of the Lord
Track Name: Someday We'll Understand
Not now, but in the coming years
Maybe in the better land
We’ll read the meaning of our tears
And there someday we’ll understand

Then trust in God, through all your days
Fear not for He will hold your hand
Though dark your way - sing and praise
Someday, someday we’ll understand

We’ll catch the broken threads again
Complete what we here began
Heaven will the mysteries explain
And then, yes then we’ll understand

Then trust in God, through all your days
Fear not for He will hold your hand
Though dark your way - sing and praise
Someday, someday we’ll understand

What we long for most of all
Eludes our eager hand
Hopes are crushed and castles fall
Someday we’ll understand

God knows the way He holds the key
He guides with unerring hand
Someday with tearless eyes we’ll see
Yes there up there we’ll understand

Then trust in God, through all your days
Fear not for He will hold your hand
Though dark your way - sing and praise
Someday, someday we’ll understand
Track Name: Nothing But Leaves
Nothing but leaves the Spirit grieves
Over years and years and years of wasted life
Over sin indulged while conscience slept
Over vows and promises unkept
Reaping— from years of strife
Nothing but leaves, nothing but leaves

Nothing but leaves memory weaves
No veil, no veil, no veil to hide the past
And as we trace our weary way
And count each last and misspent day
Sadly—- we find at last
Nothing but leaves, nothing but leaves

Oh, who shall the Master meet
And bringing but withered leaves?
Who shall at the Savior’s feet
Before the awful judgment seat
Lay down for golden sheaves
Nothing but leaves, nothing but leaves
Track Name: I Shall Be Satisfied
Soul of mine in earthly temple
Why not here content abide?
Why art thou forever pleading
why art thou not satisfied

I shall be satisfied
I shall be satisfied
When I awake in His likeness
I shall be satisfied

Soul of mine my heart is clinging
To the earth’s fair pomp and pride
Why art thou forever asking
Why art thou not satisfied?

I shall be satisfied
I shall be satisfied
When I awake in His likeness
I shall be satisfied

Soul of mine must I surrender
See myself as crucified
Turn from all of earth’s ambition
That thou may be satisfied
Soul of mine continue pleading
Sin rebuke and folly chide
I accept the cross of Jesus
That thou may be satisfied

Soul of mine in earthly temple
Why not here content abide?
Why art thou forever pleading
why art thou not satisfied

I shall be satisfied
I shall be satisfied
When I awake in His likeness
I shall be satisfied
Track Name: Nearer Draw Nearer
Nearer, draw nearer
Till my soul is lost in Thee
Nearer draw nearer
Blessed Lord to me

O my Redeemer
What a Friend thou art to me
O what a refuge I have found in Thee
When the way was dreary
And my heart oppressed
’Twas Thy voice that lulled me
To a calm sweet rest
Sweet rest

Nearer, draw nearer
Till my soul is lost in Thee
Nearer draw nearer
Blessed Lord to me

Jesus my Savior
When the last deep shadows fall
When in the silence
I shall hear Thy call
In Thine arms reposing
Breathe my life away
Then awake triumphant
In eternal day

Nearer, draw nearer
Nearer, draw nearer
Nearer, draw nearer
Blessed Lord to me
Track Name: Onward
Onward, onward looking unto Jesus
Casting quickly every weight aside
While we run the race he’s set before us
Firm as a rock let our faith abide

Lo a cloud of witnesses behold us
They through faith were victors in the race
Let us gladly follow their example
Trusting the Savior for strength and grace

Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus
Pressing forward we the race will run
Claiming ever His Divine protection
We shall not fail till the crown is won

Lo a cloud of witnesses behold us
They through faith were victors in the race
Let us gladly follow their example
Trusting the Savior for strength and grace

Onward...

Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus
Joy awaits us on the other shore
There we’ll sing the song of our redemption
Safe at last when strife is o’er

Lo a cloud of witnesses behold us
They through faith were victors in the race
Let us gladly follow their example
Trusting the Savior for strength and grace (2X)
Track Name: Not I But Christ
Not I, but Christ, be honored, loved, exalted
Not I but Christ be seen, be known, be heard
Not I, but Christ, in every look and action
Not I but Christ in every thought and word

Glory, glory, sing glory
Glory, glory, sing glory
To none but Christ

Not I, but Christ, to gently soothe in sorrow
Not I, but Christ, to wipe the falling tear
Not I, but Christ, to lift the weary burden
Not I, but Christ, to hush away all fear

Glory, glory, sing glory
Glory, glory, sing glory
Glory, glory, sing glory
To none but Christ
