Hymns of the Week (from Trinity Hymnal):

  • Hymn 87, The Lord’s my Shepherd (by Francis Rous & William Mure)

1 The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want; He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; he leadeth me, The quiet waters by.

2 My soul he doth restore again; And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness, E’en for his own name’s sake.

3 Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale, Yet will I fear none ill,
For thou art with me; and thy rod, And staff me comfort still.

4 My table thou hast furnished In presence of my foes;
My head thou dost with oil anoint, And my cup overflows.

5 Goodness and mercy all my life, Shall surely follow me:
And in God’s house for evermore, My dwelling place shall be.

  • Hymn 521, My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less (by Edward Mote)

1 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.

Refrain: On Christ, the solid rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.

2 When darkness veils his lovely face, I rest on his unchanging grace;
in ev’ry high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]

3 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. [Refrain]

4 When he shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in him be found,
dressed in his righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]
