Matthew 11:25-30
New Revised Standard Version

Jesus Thanks His Father

25 At that time Jesus said, “I thank[External link opens in new tab or windowa] you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; 26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.[External link opens in new tab or windowb] 27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

28 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

All Who Are Thirsty

 

Verse

All who are thirsty

All who are weak

Come to the fountain

Dip your heart in the stream of life

 

Let the pain and the sorrow

Be washed away

In the waves of His mercy

As deep cries out to deep

 

 Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing (Nettleton)

 

Verse 1

Come Thou fount of ev'ry blessing

Tune my heart to sing Thy grace

Streams of mercy never ceasing

Call for songs of loudest praise

Teach me some melodious sonnet

Sung by flaming tongues above

Praise the mount I'm fixed upon it

Mount of Thy redeeming love

 

Verse 2

Here I raise mine Ebenezer

Hither by Thy help I'm come

And I hope by Thy good pleasure

Safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me when a stranger

Wand'ring from the fold of God

He to rescue me from danger

Interposed His precious blood

 

Verse 3

O to grace how great a debtor

Daily I'm constrained to be

Let Thy grace Lord like a fetter

Bind my wand'ring heart to Thee

Prone to wander Lord I feel it

Prone to leave the God I love

Here's my heart Lord take and seal it

Seal it for Thy courts above

 

Just As I Am (Woodworth)

 

Verse 1

Just as I am without one plea

But that Thy Blood was shed for me

And that Thou bidd’st me come to Thee

O Lamb of God I come I come

 

Verse 2

Just as I am and waiting not

To rid my soul of one dark blot

To Thee Whose Blood can cleanse each spot

O Lamb of God I come I come

 

Verse 3

Just as I am Thou wilt receive

Wilt welcome pardon cleanse relieve

Because Thy Promise I believe

O Lamb of God I come I come

 

Verse 4

Just as I am Thy Love unknown

Hath broken ev’ry barrier down

Now to be Thine yes Thine alone

O Lamb of God I come I come

 

Verse 5

Just as I am though tossed about

With many a conflict many a doubt

Fightings and fears within without

O Lamb of God I come I come

 

Verse 6

Just as I am poor wretched blind

Sight riches healing of the mind

Yea all I need in Thee to find

O Lamb of God I come I come

 

Lord I Need You

 

Verse 1

Lord I come I confess

Bowing here I find my rest

And without You I fall apart

You're the one that guides my heart

 

Chorus 1

Lord I need You oh I need You

Every hour I need You

My one defense my righteousness

Oh God how I need You

 

Verse 2

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more

Where grace is found is where You are

And where You are Lord I am free

Holiness is Christ in me

Where You are Lord I am free

Holiness is Christ in me

 

Bridge

So teach my song to rise to You

When temptation comes my way

And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You

Jesus You're my hope and stay

And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You

Jesus You're my hope and stay

 

Chorus 2

Lord I need You oh I need You

Every hour I need You

My one defense my righteousness

Oh God how I need You

 

It Is Well With My Soul

 

Verse 1

When peace like a river

Attendeth my way

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot

Thou hast taught me to say

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

Chorus

It is well with my soul

It is well

It is well with my soul

 

Verse 2

Tho' Satan should buffet

Tho' trials should come

Let this blest assurance control

That Christ hath regarded

My helpless estate

And hath shed His own blood

For my soul

 

Verse 3

My sin O the bliss

Of this glorious thought

My sin not in part but the whole

Is nailed to the cross

And I bear it no more

Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord O my soul

 

Verse 4

And Lord haste the day

When the faith shall be sight

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll

The trump shall resound

And the Lord shall descend

Even so it is well

With my soul

 

Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow (Old 100th)

 

Chorus

Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him all creatures here below

Praise Him above ye heavenly host

Praise Father Son and Holy Ghost

Amen
