Fairest Lord Jesus Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature O Thou of God and man the Son Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor Thou, my soul's glory, joy, and crown Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands Robed in the blooming garb of spring Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer Who makes the woeful heart to sing Fair is the sunshine, fairer still the moonlight And all the twinkling starry host Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer Than all the angels heaven can boast Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations Son of God and Son of Man Glory and honor, praise, adoration Now and forevermore be Thine

This is My Father’s World This is my Father's world, And to my listening ears All nature sings, and round me rings The music of the spheres. This is my Father's world: I rest me in the thought Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas-- His hand the wonders wrought. This is my Father's world: The birds their carols raise, The morning light, the lily white, Declare their Maker's praise. This is my Father's world: He shines in all that's fair; In the rustling grass, I hear Him pass, He speaks to me everywhere. This is my Father’s world Dreaming I see His face I open my eyes and in glad surprise The Lord is in this place This is my Father’s world From the shining courts above The beloved one God’s only Son Brings a pledge of deathless love This is my Father's world: O let me ne'er forget That though the wrong seems all so strong, God is the Ruler yet. This is my Father's world: Why should my heart be sad? The Lord is King: let the heavens ring! God reigns; let the earth be glad!

The Love of God The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; it goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell. The guilty pair bowed down with care God gave his Son to win; his erring child he reconciled, and pardoned every sin. Refrain: O love of God, how rich and pure; how measureless and strong! It shall forevermore endure, the saints' and angels' song. Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made; were every stalk on earth a quill, and everyone a scribe by trade; to write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry; nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky. [Refrain]

Are You Washed in the Blood? Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Chorus: Are you washed in the blood, In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb? Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Are you walking daily by the Savior's side? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Do you rest each moment in the Crucified? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?[Chorus] Power in the Blood Would you be free from the burden of sin? There's power in the blood, power in the blood; Would you o'er evil a victory win? There's wonderful power in the blood. Chorus: There is power, power, wonder-working power In the blood of the Lamb. There is power, power, wonder-working power In the precious blood of the Lamb. Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow? There's power in the blood, power in the blood; Sin stains are lost in its life-giving flow; There's wonderful power in the blood.[Chorus]

‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to take Him at His Word Just to rest upon His promise, Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord!" Chorus: Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him! How I've proved Him o'er and o'er Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! Oh, for grace to trust Him more! Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to trust His cleansing blood And in simple faith to plunge me 'Neath the healing, cleansing flood! Yes, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus, Just from sin and self to cease Just from Jesus simply taking Life and rest, and joy and peace. I'm so glad I learned to trust Thee, Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend And I know that Thou art with me, Wilt be with me to the end.

Be Thou My Vision Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else to me, save that thou art; Thou my best thought, by day or by night, Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light. Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true Word; I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord; Thou my great Father and I Thy true son Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one. Riches I heed not, nor vain, empty praise; Thou, mine inheritance, now and always; Thou and thou only, first in my heart, High King of Heaven, my treasure thou art. High King of Heaven, my victory won, may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun! Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
7.
He Giveth More Grace He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater, He sendeth more strength when the labors increase; To added affliction, He addeth His mercy, To multiplied trials His multiplied peace. Chorus: His love has no limit, His grace has no measure, His power has no boundary known unto men; For out of His infinite riches in Jesus, He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again. When we have exhausted our store of endurance, When our strength has failed 'ere the day is half done; When we reach the end of our hoarded resources, Our Father's full giving is only begun. His love has no limit, His grace has no measure, His power has no boundary known unto men; For out of His infinite riches in Jesus, He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.
8.
I Surrender All All to Jesus I surrender, All to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live. Chorus: I surrender all, I surrender all. All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all. All to Jesus I surrender, Lord, I give myself to Thee; Fill me with Thy love and power, Let Thy blessing fall on me. All to Jesus I surrender, Humbly at His feet, I bow, Worldly pleasures all forsaken; Take me, Jesus, take me now.
9.
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms; what a blessedness, what a peace is mine, leaning on the everlasting arms. Refrain: Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms. O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms; O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms. [Refrain] What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms. [Refrain]
10.
To God Be the Glory To God be the glory, great things He has done! So loved He the world that He gave us His Son, Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, And opened the life-gate that all may go in. Refrain: Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father thro' Jesus the Son, And give him the glory, great things he has done! O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood! To ev'ry believer the promise of God; The vilest offender who truly believes, That moment from Jesus forgiveness receives. [Refrain]
11.
Take My Life and Let it Be Take my life and let it be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee. Take my moments and my days Let them flow in ceaseless praise Let them flow in ceaseless praise Take my lips and let them be Filled with messages from Thee Take my voice and let me sing Always, only, for my King Always, only, for my King Take my will and make it Thine It shall be no longer mine Take my heart it is Thine own It shall be Thy royal throne It shall be Thy royal throne Take my love; my Lord, I pour At Thy feet its treasure store. Take myself, and I will be Ever, only, all for Thee, Ever, only, all for Thee.

about

I've been asked over the years to record an album of hymns and one winter I decided to try my hand at self-producing it. This album contains only my voice and guitar. I was amazed at how the Lord enabled me to do all the technical stuff that seemed way beyond my compacity. He truly is measureless and strong.
