Track Name: It Is Well With My Soul
It Is Well With My Soul

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way
When sorrows, like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well
It is well
With my soul

It is well
It is well
With my soul
Track Name: O Lord of Light
O Lord of Light
(Traditional)

O Lord of light, who made the stars
O Dawn by whom we see the way
O Christ redeemer of us all
Make haste to listen as we pray

In lowliness you came on earth
To rescue us from Satan's snares
O wondrous love that healed our wounds
By taking up our mortal cares

To God the Father and the Son
For ages of eternal days
Together with the spirit be
All glory, honor, might and praise
Track Name: 500 Miles
500 Miles
( Hedy West )

If you miss the train I'm on
You will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

A hundred miles, a hundred miles
A hundred miles, a hundred miles
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

Lord I'm one, Lord I'm two
Lord I'm three, Lord I'm four
Lord I'm five hundred miles from my home

Five hundred miles, five hundred miles
Five hundred miles, five hundred miles
Lord I'm five hundred miles from my home

Not a shirt on my back
Not a penny to my name
Lord I can't go a-home this a-way

This a-away, this a-way
This a-way, this a-way
Lord I can't go a-home this a-way

If you miss the train I'm on
You will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
Track Name: No Storms Come
No Storms Come
(Hopkins/Peris)

I have desired to go
Oh, I have asked to go
Where a few lilies blow
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And springs not fail
And springs not fail

And I have asked to be
Oh, I have asked to be
Out of the swing of the sea
Where the green swell is in the heavens won
And no storms come
And no storms come
Track Name: Christ Is My Hope
Christ Is My Hope
(Karen Peris)

You can say the word.
Unworthy though I am,
O bread of life,
O bread of life,
I will be healed and come.

Hold me in your arms,
bridegroom of my soul,
O bread of life,
O bread of life,
I will be healed and come.

Christ, Christ is my hope.
Christ, Christ is my light.
Christ, Christ is my hope.
Christ, Christ is my light,
O my light.

I have been afraid
but I’m on the way to this table.
O bread of life,
O bread of life,
I will be healed and come.
Track Name: Morning Star
Morning Star
(Don Peris)

Morning Star so radiant and holy
Shine on me in my great hour of need
Jesus Christ so beautiful and lovely
Shine over me

Morning Star so radiant and holy
Shine on me in my great hour of need
Jesus Christ so beautiful and lovely
Shine over me
Track Name: O Sacred Head Surrounded
O Sacred Head, Surrounded
( Traditional )

O sacred head, surrounded
By crown of piercing thorn
O bleeding head, so wounded
Reviled and put to scorn

Our sins have marred the glory
Of thy most holy face
Yet angel hosts adore thee
And tremble as they gaze

The Lord of every nation
Was hung upon a tree
His death was our salvation
Our sins, his agony

O Jesus, by thy passion
Thy life in us increase
Thy death for us did fashion
Our pardon and our peace
Track Name: Were You There?
Were You There

Were you there
When they crucified my Lord
Were you there
When they crucified my Lord
Oh, oh, oh
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord

Were you there when the sun refuse to shine
Were you there when the sun refuse to shine
Oh, oh, oh
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when the sun refuse to shine

Were you there when He rose up from the grave
Oh, oh, oh
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when He rose up from the grave
Track Name: Fare Thee Well
Fare Thee Well

Oh fare thee well, I must be gone
And leave you for awhile
Wherever I go, I will return
If I go ten thousand miles
If I go, if I go, if I go ten thousand miles

Oh, ten thousand miles it is so far
To leave me here alone
Well, I may lie, lament and cry
And you'll, you'll not hear my mourn
And you'll, no you'll, and you'll not hear my mourn

Oh, the crow that is so black, my love
Will change his color white
If ever I should prove false to thee
The day, day will turn to night
Yes, the day, oh the day, yes the day will turn to night
Track Name: Beautiful Savior
Beautiful Saviour

Beautiful Savior, King of Creation
Son of God and Son of Man
You will we cherish, You will we honor
Light of my soul, my joy, my crown

Fair are the meadows, fair are the woodlands
Robed in the flowers of blooming spring
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer
He makes our sorrowing spirit sing

Fair is the sunshine, fair is the moonlight
Bright the sparkling stars on high
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels in the sky
