Hymns

Hosanna (Praise is Rising)

Paul Baloche

1.
Praise is rising,
Eyes are turning to You,
We turn to You;
Hope is stirring,
Hearts are yearning for You,
We long for You.

Pre-chorus
‘Cause when we see You
We find strength to face the day;
In Your presence all our fears
Are washed away, washed away…

Chorus
Hosanna! Hosanna!
You are the God who saves us,
Worthy of all our praises;
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Come have Your way among us,
We welcome You here Lord Jesus.

2.
Hear the sound of
Hearts returning to You,
We turn to You.
In Your kingdom
Broken lives are made new,
You make us new.

I Love My Master

Words: Frances Ridley Havergal
Music: Alexander C. Ewing

1.
I love, I love my Master,
I will not go out free,
For He is my Redeemer,
He paid the price for me;
I would not leave His service,
It is so sweet and blest
And in the weariest moments
He gives the truest rest.

2.
My Master shed His life-blood,
My vassal life to win,
And save me from the bondage
Of tyrant self and sin;
He chose me for His service,
And gave me power to choose
That blessed, perfect freedom,
Which I shall never lose.

3.
I would not halve my service,
His only it must be!
His only, who so loved me,
And gave Himself for me;
Rejoicing and adoring,
Henceforth my song shall be:
I love, I love my Master,
I will not go out free.

Deuteronomy 8:11-19
11 “Take care lest you forget the Lord your God by not keeping his commandments and his rules and his statutes, which I command you today, 12 lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, 13 and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, 15 who led you through the great and terrifying wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, 16 who fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers did not know, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end. 17 Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ 18 You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day. 19 And if you forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish

Proverbs 30:8-9
Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is needful for me,
   lest I be full and deny you
and say, “Who is the Lord?”
or lest I be poor and steal
and profane the name of my God

Luke 16
10 “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. 11 If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

Matthew 6
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

1 Corinthians 9:14-15
14 In the same way, the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel. 15 But I have made no use of any of these rights, nor am I writing these things to secure any such provision. For I would rather die than have anyone deprive me of my ground for boasting.

1 Timothy 6:17-18
17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share.

2 Corinthians 9:6-7
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Philippians 4:17
Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit
