1. Come, o come Thou Holy Spirit Light and life Thy grace imparts Blessed Source of consolation Guide our minds and fill our hearts Grant my mind and my affections Wisdom, counsel, purity That I may be ever seeking Only that which pleases Thee Only that which pleases Thee 2. Savior lead us to adore Thee By the true and living way Then with angel hosts before Thee May we worship, love and praise Dwell within us, precious Spirit Where Thou art no ill can come Bless us now through Jesus' merit Reign in every heart and home Reign in every heart and home 3. Holy Spirit, strong and mighty Thou who makest all things new Make Thy work within me perfect Help me by Thy word so true In Thy faith, O make me steadfast Let not Satan, death or shame Of my confidence deprive me Lord, my refuge is Thy name Lord, my refuge is Thy name 4. When my final hour approaches Let my hopes grow yet more bright Let Thy love which never fails me Dissipate the gloom of night From that height which knows no measure Fairer far than voice can tell In Thy glorious courts of heaven There, redeemed by Christ, to dwell There, redeemed by Christ, to dwell

CHORUS: Heal us, Emmanuel, here we are We long to feel Thy touch Deep wounded souls to Thee we fly O Savior hear our cry 1. Our faith is feeble, we confess We faintly trust Thy word But will You pity us the less? Be that far from You Lord! 2. Remember him who once applied With trembling for relief “Lord, I believe,” with tears he cried “O help my unbelief!" 3. She, too, who touched you in the press And healing virtue stole Was answered, “Daughter, go in peace Thy faith has made thee whole.” 4. Like her, with hopes and fears we come To touch You if we may O send us not despairing home Send none unhealed away

1. Come ye souls by, sin afflicted,
 Bowed with fruitless, sorrow down;
 By the broken, law convicted,
 Through the cross, behold the crown;
 Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus; Mercy flows through Him alone. 2. Take His easy, yoke and wear it;
 Love will make your, obedience sweet;
 Christ will give you, strength to bear it,
 While His grace, shall guide your feet
 Safe to glory, Safe to glory, Safe to glory, Where His ransomed captives meet. 3. Blessèd are the, eyes that see Him,
 Blest the ears that, hear His voice;
 Blessèd are the, souls that trust Him,
 And in Him, alone rejoice;
 His commandments, His commandments, His commandments Then become their happy choice. 4. Sweet as home to, pilgrims weary,
 Light to newly, opened eyes,
 Like full springs in, deserts dreary,
 Is the rest, the cross supplies;
 All who taste it, All who taste it, All who taste it Shall to rest immortal rise. Tag: Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus; Look to Jesus; Mercy flows through Him alone.

Speak, I pray Thee, gentle Jesus O, how passing sweet Thy words Breathing o’er my troubled spirit Peace which never earth affords All the world’s distracting voices All the tempting tones of ill At Thy voice, so mild, melodious Are subdued and all is still 2. Tell me Thou art mine, O Savior Speak a true assurance clear Banish all my dark misgivings Still my doubting, calm my fear In Thy righteousness I’ll triumph In Thy wisdom I’ll be wise In Thy robes I’m perfect beauty In Thy power I’ll arise BRIDGE: I’ll arise, in Thy power, I’ll arise I’ll arise, I’ll arise, in Thy power, I’ll arise I’ll arise, I’ll arise, in Thy power, I’ll arise OUTRO: Speak, I pray Thee, gentle Jesus O, how passing sweet Thy words Breathing o’er my troubled spirit Peace which never earth affords All the world’s distracting voices All the tempting tones of ill At Thy voice, so mild, melodious Are subdued In Thy righteousness I’ll triumph In Thy wisdom I’ll be wise In Thy robes I’m perfect beauty In Thy power I’ll arise

Chorus: Jerusalem, heavenly home, city of truth and grace Oh when shall we come to thee, city of sweet embrace? 1. There shall the curse no more be known And we no more complain There God is seen upon His throne And there the Lamb shall reign 2. We shall behold the Savior’s face And all His glories see And love in every feature trace How sweet the sight shall be 3. His perfect likeness we shall wear With all His image blessed His Name upon our foreheads bear Indelibly impressed Bridge: Oh when shall we come to thee? Jerusalem, Jerusalem (3x)
7.
Chorus: Jesus, oh lead us with Thy power safe into the promised rest; Hide our souls within Thy bosom; Let us slumber on Thy breast 1. Feed us with the heavenly manna Bread that angels eat above Let us drink from the holy fountain Draughts of everlasting love 2. Through the desert wild conduct us With a glorious pillar bright In the day a cooling comfort And a cheering fire by night 3. Be our guide in every peril Watch us hourly, night and day Otherwise we’ll err and wander From the Spirit far away 4. In Thy presence we find comfort In Thy presence we’re secure In Thy presence all afflictions We will patiently endure 5. In Thy presence we can conquer We can suffer, we can die Far from Thee, we faint and languish Lord, our Saviour, keep us nigh
8.
1. Repeated crimes awake our fears And justice armed with frowns appears But in the Savior’s lovely face Sweet mercy smiles, and all is peace, all is peace CHORUS: He lives! the great Redeemer lives! What joy the blest assurance gives! And now, before His Father, God Pleads the merit of His blood He lives! the great Redeemer lives! What joy the blest assurance gives! And now, before His Father, God Pleads the merit of His blood He lives, oh, He lives 2. In every dark, distressful hour When sin and Satan join their power Let this, dear hope repel the dart That Jesus bears us on His heart, on His heart 3. Great Advocate, almighty Friend! On Him our humble hopes depend Our cause can never, ever fail For Jesus pleads, and must prevail For our Jesus pleads, our Jesus pleads and Jesus must prevail For our Jesus pleads, our Jesus pleads and Jesus must prevail OUTRO: For our Jesus pleads x4 For our Jesus pleads, our Jesus pleads, Jesus must prevail x6...

1. My faith has found a resting place From guilt my soul is free I trust the Ever-living One His wounds shall plead for me. Chorus: I need no other argument I need no other plea It is enough that Jesus died And that He died for me 2. My great physician heals the sick The lost He came to save For me His precious blood He shed For me His life He gave 3. My heart is leaning on the Word The written Word of God Salvation by my Savior’s name Salvation through His blood
10.
1. Hear what God the Lord has spoken "O my people, faint and few Comfortless, afflicted, broken Fair abodes I build for you Thorns of heartfelt tribulation Shall no more perplex your ways You shall name your walls Salvation And your gates shall all be Praise" 2. There, like streams that feed the garden Pleasures without end shall flow For the Lord, your faith rewarding All His bounty shall bestow Still in undisturbed possession Peace and righteousness shall reign Never shall you feel oppression Nor hear the voice of war again 3. See no more your sun's descending Waning moons no more shall be But your griefs forever ending Find eternal noon in me God shall rise, and shining o'er you Change to day the gloom of night He, the Lord, shall be your glory God, your Everlasting Light
11.
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 trembling, every trembling heart 2. Breathe, oh, breathe Thy loving Spirit Into every troubled breast Let us all in Thee inherit Let us find the promised rest Take away the love of sinning Alpha and Omega be End of faith, as its beginning Set our hearts at liberty, at liberty 3. Come, Almighty, to deliver Let us all Thy life receive Suddenly return, and never Nevermore 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, in Thy perfect love 4. Finish, then, Thy new creation Pure and spotless let us be Let us see Thy great salvation Perfectly restored in Thee Changed from glory into glory Til in heaven we take our place Til we cast our crowns before Thee Lost in wonder, love, in wonder, love and praise OUTRO: Wonder, love and praise Wonder, love and praise
12.
1. This is not my place of resting Mine’s a city yet to come Onward to it I am hasting On to my eternal home CHORUS: In that land of light and glory O’er it shines a nightless day Every tear from sin’s sad story All the curse has passed away 2. There the Lamb and Shepherd leads us By the streams of life along On the freshest pastures feeds us Turns our sighing into song 3. Soon we pass this desert dreary Soon we bid farewell to pain Never more be sad nor weary Never, never sin again
13.
1. Jesus, my Savior, look on me, For I am weary and oppressed I come to cast myself on Thee Thou art my Rest Thou art my Rest 2. Look down on me, for I am weak I feel the toilsome journey’s length Thine aid omnipotent I seek Thou art my Strength Thou art my Strength 3. Thou will supply my every need On to the end, whate’er befall Through life, in death, eternally Thou art my All Thou art my All 4. I am bewildered on my way Dark and tempestuous is the night O send Thou forth some cheering ray Thou art my Light Thou art my Light 5. Standing alone on Jordan’s brink In that tremendous latest strife Thou will not suffer me to sink Thou art my Life Thou art my Life Thou art my Life

about

Come ye souls by, sin afflicted / Bowed with fruitless, sorrow down
By the broken law convicted / Through the cross, behold the crown
Look to Jesus, look to Jesus, look to Jesus / Mercy flows through Him alone

This, our ninth project, comes out of an incredibly difficult season for many in our Indelible Grace community. As I reflect on how God has met us, I am struck again by two themes reflected in this collection of hymns. We long for a place of true rest and wholeness and we need songs that give voice to that ache, that homesickness that we feel so viscerally in our sorrow. But many of us would also testify to the reality that we have found the Lord’s presence and tasted His sweetness in new ways during this season. This collection of hymns centers around these two realities. We long for heaven, but in the meantime taste the "joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory" (1 Peter 1:8).

Augustine once said, “He who sings, prays twice.” Singing intensifies what we are feeling, both the longing and the sweetness we can taste even in the midst of our sorrow. As we look to Jesus through the cross, we behold that our King wears the crown of thorns. He knows sorrow beyond what we have experienced. This does not make light of our suffering. In fact, it gives us a doorway into experiencing sweet communion with Jesus and tasting just a hint of what it felt like for Him to love us to the utmost on the cross.

Sweet as home to pilgrims weary / Light to newly, opened eyes
Like full springs in deserts dreary / Is the rest the cross supplies
All who taste it, all who taste it, all who taste it / Shall to rest immortal rise

Rev. Kevin Twit
