1 - Splendid Church Life! ~ Hymn 1237

1 Splendid church life! His green garden! He has

brought us, praise the Lord,

To experience the Christ Who's growing here!

He is full of rich enjoyment to His saints in one

He is new and fresh, available and dear.

I'm so happy in this lovely place,

In the garden growing in His grace!

There is no finer pleasure than to eat the

living tree

And to get the living water into me.

2 It is not a school or fact'ry or a chapel in the air;

But a garden where our Lord can plant and sow.
So He's placed us all here corporately to be
His garden fair,

Where He's free to cultivate and make us grow.

3 Thus within the church-life garden there's a
     fruit-producing tree
   Full of life and so available to eat.
So be simple, don't be hardened, drop your
concepts --eat that tree!
   Take in Jesus every moment-- He's so sweet!

4 With the tree there is the water, flowing God

in Christ to us,
   Quenching all our dryness, ending all our strife.
Hallelujah! In His garden Jesus flows Himself to

   As the full supply for us to grow in life.

5 Aren't you satisfied and thankful that our Lord
has brought you in
   Where His pleasures and His riches flow so free?
So be happy and be joyful, in the spirit feast on

   So God's garden can bear fruit abundantly.

2 - Unto Him that Hath Thou Givest

~ Hymn 394

  1. Unto him that hath Thou givest
    Ever more abundantly;
    Lord, I live because Thou livest,
    Therefore give more life to me,
    Therefore speed me in the race,
    Therefore let me grow in grace.

2 Deepen all Thy work, O Master,
Strengthen every downward root;
Only do Thou ripen faster,
More and more Thy pleasant fruit;
Purge me, prune me, self abase;
Only let me grow in grace.
3 Let me grow by sun and shower,
Every moment water me;
Make me really, hour by hour,
More and more conformed to Thee,
That Thy loving eye may trace
Day by day my growth in grace.
4 From Thy fullness grace outpouring
Show me ever greater things;
Raise me higher, sunward soaring,
Mounting as on eagle-wings.
By the brightness of Thy face,
Ever let me grow in grace.
5 Let me, then, be always growing,
Never, never standing still,
Listening, learning, better knowing
Thee and Thy most blessed will.
Till I win the glorious race,
Daily let me grow in grace.

3 - Dearest Lord, You've Called Us here
1 Dearest Lord, You've called us here
And opened up Your heart.
O the joy to hear Your call
And enter in the Ark.
Saving us from day to day,
O Lord, this is Your way.
In Yourself we stay afloat,
Above this wicked age today.


Thank you, Lord, in Your eyes we find grace,

And with open hearts we come to You.

Regardless what our friends might say to us or

O Lord Jesus, we love You.

2 Seeking of this age to taste,

And of it have a part.
If we only knew, dear Lord,
The ways we grieve Your heart,
We would come and turn to You
With a repenting heart
And would give ourselves to be
With you, O Lord, inside the Ark.

3 Praise You Lord, we're safe in You;

Outside death-waters pour.
Many things that I once loved
Are on the ocean floor.
Keep us open to you, Lord,
Don't let us miss the mark.
Hallelujah, praise the Lord,
We're here within the church, the Ark.

4 - Take Time to Behold Him

~ Hymn 643
1 Take time to behold Him,
  Speak oft with Thy Lord,
Abide in Him always,
  And feed on His Word.
Wait thou in His presence,
  Submissive and meek,
Forgetting in nothing
  His blessing to seek.

2 Take time to behold Him,

  The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret
  With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
  Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends, in thy conduct,
  His likeness shall see.

3 Take time to behold Him,

  Let Him be thy guide;
And run not before Him
  Whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow
  Still follow thy Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
 Still trust in His Word.

4 Take time to behold Him,

  Be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each temper
  Beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit
  To fountains of love,
Thou then shalt be fitted
  His mercy to prove.

5 - The Gift of Righteousness
1 The gift of righteousness is measured in


The depth of His love I'll never understand.
His love reaches me and you.
His mercy goes farther, too.
The One on the throne of God is called the


So, why not open up and call His name, “O

Find your spirit where His grace has been


Call His name.

Taste His grace.
Exercise before His face:
He's longing and yearning,
He's hoping and waiting,
He's ever desiring,
For you... to turn to Him.

2 He knows your deepest thought, your every


He understands your heart; He knows your

There's nothing in His way.
He's just waiting for you to say -
“Lord Jesus, my wandering heart I give to


6 - I Thank Thee, Lord ~ Hymn 521
1 I thank Thee, Lord, that Thou hast shown,
    And I begin to see,
What Thou canst be to all Thine own,
    What they may be to Thee;
If only they will yield Thee all,
And trustingly obey Thy call.

2 How wonderful! I never knew

    That I might trust Thee so;
That Thou wouldst be so much to me,
    In all the way I go,
That every need Thou wouldst supply,
And all my longings satisfy.

3 I take Thee as my keeper now,

    And I commit to Thee
My soul, my way, my works, my cause,
    In Thy sole charge to be;
And my deposit, Thou, I know
Wilt guard secure from every foe.

4 I take Thee for my peace, O Lord,

    My heart to keep and fill,
Thine own great calm, amid earth's storms
    Shall keep me always still;
And as Thy kingdom doth increase,
So shall Thine ever-deep'ning peace.

5 I take Thee as my wisdom too,

    For wisdom's sum Thou art;
Thou, who dost choose the foolish things,
    Set me henceforth apart,
That I may speak and work for Thee
As Thou shalt work and speak in me.

6 I take Thee, Lord, to be my all,

    Since all Thou art is mine.
I nothing have, and nothing am;
    That nothing, Lord, is Thine.
Thou shalt be everything to me,
In all things my sufficiency.

7 - Lord, You are My Only Goal

1 Lord, You are my only goal!

     You're my only hope!
I only care for You!
     I never could replace you,
And I would never want to.
     I have everything, Lord
I have You!

2 Lord, I only live for You

    Not anything else!
In everything You're my source;
     No more good intentions,
No more right or wrong.
     I don't want a “good” life --
I want You!

8 - Loved with Everlasting Love

~ Hymn 285
1 Loved with everlasting love,
Led by grace that love to know;
Spirit, breathing from above,
Thou hast taught me it is so.
Oh, this full and perfect peace!
Oh, this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease,
I am His, and He is mine.

2 Heav'n above is softer blue,

Earth around is sweeter green;
Something lives in every hue
Christless eyes have never seen.
Birds with gladder songs o'erflow,
Flow'rs with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know,
I am His, and He is mine.

3 Things that once were wild alarms

Cannot now disturb my rest;

Closed in everlasting arms,

Pillowed on the loving breast.

Oh, to lie forever here,

Doubt and care and self resign,

While He whispers in my ear,

I am His, and He is mine.

4 His forever, only His:

Who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss,
Christ can fill the loving heart.
Heaven and earth may fade and flee,
Firstborn light in gloom decline;
But, while God and I shall be,
I am His, and He is mine.

9 - Draw me, Dear Lord
1 Draw me, dear Lord.
Draw me today.
From everything else, dear Lord,
Draw me away [today].

2 O Lord, this whole world

Seems to weigh me down:
All the cares, the strife, the sin,
Within me and all around.

3 But, Lord, I want to set my heart,

And, Lord, I want to stay with you,
'Cause only when You're near to me
Is everything okay.

4 And though everything may fall apart,

Or everything go my way,
It doesn't really matter, Lord,
As long as I gain You today.

10 - Jesus, O Living Word of God
1 Jesus, O Living Word of God,
Wash me and cleanse me with Your blood
So You can speak to me.
Just let me hear Your words of grace,
Just let me see Your radiant face;

Beholding constantly.

Jesus, Living Word,
My heart thirsts for Thee;
Of Thee I'd eat and drink,
Enjoy Thee thoroughly.

2 Jesus, most precious One to me,

I want to seek You constantly,
So You can spread through me.
I would just call upon Your name,
Open to You; I have no shame

Loving You, Jesus Lord.

Jesus, precious One,
Be so real to me.
You are all I want;
I open wide to Thee.

3 Jesus, O Living One in me,

Open my eyes that I might see
All that You are to me.
Just let me enter in Your heart,
Never from You would I depart,

Loving You constantly.

Jesus, Living One,
Flood me thoroughly.
Take my willing heart
And overcome in me.

4 Lord, I want You to have Your way,

Save me from being Satan's prey,
I am believing You.
All I can give to You, my Lord,
Is my whole being„love outpoured.
Lord, I belong to You.
Jesus, faithful God,
Gain us through and through.
Use us thoroughly
To see Your purpose through.

11 - Remove My Covering, Lord

~ Hymn 426
1 Remove my covering, Lord,
That I may see Thy light,
And be deceived no more,
But all things see aright.


Oh, may Thy living light, Lord,

   Scatter all my night, Lord,

And ev'rything make bright, Lord,

For this I pray to Thee.

2 I hardly know myself;

Deceived so much by pride,
I often think I'm right
And am self-satisfied.

3 I know Thee even less;

In doctrine, shallowly;
True revelation lack
Of Thy reality.

4 As for Thy life within,

In darkness I mistake --
If spirit or the flesh,
One for the other take.

5 As for Thy way, O Lord,

I often am not clear;
I toward seclusion tend
And from the pathway veer.
6 As for Thy will for me,
I do not know it well;
I substitute my own
And often would rebel.

7 As for the church, I need

Thy revelation more,
The Body-life to know,
Thy wisdom to explore.

8 I long to be unveiled,

In everything made clear,
No more to be deceived
Or to my pride adhere.

12 - I’ve Given Up The World

1 I've given up the world because
I've found something more.
He's better than anything
I've ever found before.
Yes, He's the One who set me free --
Oh, how my spirit soars!
I called His name. I'm not the same,
I am for the Lord!


I'm for the Lord,

I'm loving Jesus.
I'm for the Lord,
I'm calling O Lord Jesus!

2 I've given up the world because

I've found something better.
I have found the Living One,
And He breaks every fetter.
Yes, He's the One who set me free --
Oh, how my spirit soars!
I called His name. I'm not the same,
I am for the Lord!
3 And now I'm really happy;
Yes, I'm fully satisfied.
I have found the Living One,
And He lives right inside
Of you and me, so come and see --
Now our spirits soar!
We've called His name. We're not the same,
We are for the Lord!

We're for the Lord,     

We're loving Jesus.     

We're for the Lord,     

We're calling O Lord Jesus!
13 - God has Called Us for His Purpose
1 God has called us for His purpose,
His economy so glorious
For which He was fully processed;
Consummated now is He.
As the Spirit, He indwells us
As our God-allotted portion,
Working out His full salvation,
Making us the same as He is.


O may a clear controlling vision of

The Lord's economy direct my heart

And burn in me until my spirit's

Wholly set afire! (set afire!)
With spirit strong and active we'll press on
To consummate God's goal -
New Jerusalem, Hallelujah!

2 Jesus lived the God-man pattern -

Set the way for us to follow.
He denied His natural man and
Was obedient unto death.
Once He was the only God-man;
Now we are His duplication.
As the many grains, we're blended
As His corporate reproduction.

3 Living out His resurrection,

Dying to the flesh and soul-life,
Living by the mingled spirit,
Natural man we will deny.
Now we're living in the Body.
Every day we're overcoming,
Striving for the peak of Zion,
Watching for our Lord's appearing.

4 God and man will have one living,

Always in the mingled spirit.
We two are incorporated:
One organic entity.
This, the vision of the ages,
Will control our daily living
That the Lord may have His body,
Shining as the holy city.
