  • 'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus (462)
    TRUST IN JESUS  -  v 1, 2, 4

“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.”   2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.”   ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:2‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises…"   2 Peter‬ ‭1:3-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  • Standing on the Promises (374)
    STANDING ON THE PROMISES  -  v 1, 2, 4

“For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ.”   1 Corinthians‬ ‭10:1, 3-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints...”   Ephesians‬ ‭1:15-18‬ ‭ESV‬‬
  • My Hope Is Built (368)
    THE SOLID ROCK  -  v 1, 2

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us.”   1 John‬ ‭4:15-19‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  • My Jesus, I Love Thee (172)
       GORDON  -  v 1, 2

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.”   2 Corinthians‬ ‭8:9‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  • Wonderful Grace of Jesus
“'Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.'”   John‬ ‭14:1-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  • When We All Get to Heaven (701)
      HEAVEN

“All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.”   ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭86:9-10‬ ‭ESV‬‬
