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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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
9.
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

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
