Lord, the light of your love is shining – Verse 256

1. Lord, the light of your love is shining in the midst of the darkness, shining; Jesus, Light of the world, shine upon us, set us free by the truth you now bring us, shine on me, shine on me.

Shine, Jesus, shine fill this land with the Father’s glory; blaze, Spirit, blazeset our hearts on fire. Flow, river flow, flood the nations with grace and mercy;

2. Lord, I come to your awesome presence, from the shadows into your radiance; by the blood I may enter your brightness, search me, try me, consume all my darkness. Shine on me, shine on me.

3. As we gaze on your kingly brightness, so our faces display your likeness, ever changing from glory to glory, mirrored here may our lives tell your story. Shine on me, shine on me.


1. Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heaven, to earth come down, Fix in us thy humble dwelling, All thy faithful mercies crown; Jesus, thou art all compassion, Pure unbounded love thou art; Visit us with thy salvation, Enter every waiting heart.

2. Come, almighty to deliver, Let us all thy grace receive; Suddenly return, and never, Never more thy temples leave. Thee we would be always blessing, Serve thee as thy hosts above, Pray, and praise thee without ceasing, Glory in thy perfect love.

3. Finish then thy new creation, Pure and spotless let us be; let us see thy great salvation, Perfectly restored inn thee; Changed from glory into glory, Till in heaven we take our place, Till we cast our crowns before thee, Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Mine eyes have seen the glory – Verse 257

1. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath closed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword: His truth is marching on!

2. He hath sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgement-seat :O be swift, my soul, to answer him; be jubilant, my feet! Our God is marching on!

3. In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me :As he died to make men holy, let us live to make men free, While God is marching on.

4. He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave; He is wisdom to the mighty; he is succour to the brave; So the world shall be his footstool and the soul of time his slave: Our God is marching on!

He bade no one a last farewell – Verse 239

He bade no one a last farewell,
He raised his hand to none,
His spirit flew before we knew,
That he from us had gone.
He never failed to do his best,
His heart was true and tender,
He worked, and toiled for those he loved,
And left them to remember.
Along the road to yesterday,
That leads us straight to you
Are memories of happy days
Together we once knew.
May he rest in peace dear Jesus,
In Thy Heavenly home above;
With the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
In His own eternal love.

The angels lined up side by side – Verse 240

The day you took our dad away.

I’m Free – Verse 241

Don't grieve for me for now I'm free;
I'm following the path God laid for me,
I took His hand when I heard Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes these things we too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my life seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.

He never thought when leaving home – Verse 243

He never thought when leaving home,
He would never more return,
That he in death so soon would sleep,
And leave us here alone.
A sudden call from God on high,
You had no chance to say goodbye,
Without farewell you fell asleep,
But memories of you we will always keep;
And those who loved you dearly,
Are the ones who won't forget.
No farewells were spoken,
We did not say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why;
But we always will remember,
Our whole life through,
The last words we had with you.
We never fail to pray for you,
We never cease to care,
We wish we could go home again,
And find you waiting there;
To the Throne of Christ he will guide us,
And with us he will stand,
And that golden chain will be linked again,
Locked by Christ's Own hands.

Abide with me – Verse 247

1. Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide; When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

2. Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day; Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O thou who changest not, abide with me.

3. I need thy presence every passing hour; What but thy grace can foil the tempter’s power? Who like thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine. O abide with me.

5 Hold thou thy Cross before my closing eyes; Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies; Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee: In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

The Old Rugged Cross – Verse 248

1. On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame; and I love that old cross, and exchange it some day for a crown.
