LSB 555 Salvation unto Us Has Come

Salvation unto us has come
    By God’s free grace and favor;
Good works cannot avert our doom,
    They help and save us never.
Faith looks to Jesus Christ alone,
Who did for all the world atone;
    He is our one Redeemer.

What God did in His Law demand
    And none to Him could render
Caused wrath and woe on ev’ry hand
    For man, the vile offender.
Our flesh has not those pure desires
The spirit of the Law requires,
    And lost is our condition.

It was a false, misleading dream
    That God His Law had given
That sinners could themselves redeem
    And by their works gain heaven.
The Law is but a mirror bright
To bring the inbred sin to light
    That lurks within our nature.

From sin our flesh could not abstain,
    Sin held its sway unceasing;
The task was useless and in vain,
    Our guilt was e’er increasing.
None can remove sin’s poisoned dart
Or purify our guileful heart—
    So deep is our corruption.

Yet as the Law must be fulfilled
    Or we must die despairing,
Christ came and has God’s anger stilled,
    Our human nature sharing.
He has for us the Law obeyed
And thus the Father’s vengeance stayed
    Which over us impended.

LSB 423 "Jesus, Refuge of the Weary"

Jesus, refuge of the weary,
    Blest Redeemer, whom we love,
Fountain in life’s desert dreary,
    Savior from the world above:
Often have Your eyes, offended,
    Gazed upon the sinner’s fall;
Yet upon the cross extended,
    You have borne the pain of all.

Do we pass that cross unheeding,
    Breathing no repentant vow,
Though we see You wounded, bleeding,
    See Your thorn-encircled brow?
Yet Your sinless death has brought us
    Life eternal, peace, and rest;
Only what Your grace has taught us
    Calms the sinner’s deep distress.

Jesus, may our hearts be burning
    With more fervent love for You;
May our eyes be ever turning
    To behold Your cross anew
Till in glory, parted never
    From the blessèd Savior’s side,
Graven in our hearts forever,
    Dwell the cross, the Crucified.

LSB 588 Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
    Little ones to Him belong;
    They are weak, but He is strong. Refrain

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s gates to open wide.
    He has washed away my sin,
    Lets His little child come in. Refrain


LSB 790 Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is your health and salvation!
    Let all who hear
    Now to His temple draw near,
Joining in glad adoration!

Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things is wondrously reigning
And, as on wings of an eagle, uplifting, sustaining.
    Have you not seen
    All that is needful has been
Sent by His gracious ordaining?

Praise to the Lord, who has fearfully, wondrously, made you,
Health has bestowed and, when heedlessly falling, has stayed you.
    What need or grief
    Ever has failed of relief?
Wings of His mercy did shade you.

Praise to the Lord, who will prosper your work and defend you;
Surely His goodness and mercy shall daily attend you.
    Ponder anew
    What the Almighty can do
As with His love He befriends you.

Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that has life and breath, come now with praises before Him!
    Let the Amen
    Sound from His people again;
Gladly forever adore Him!

Thy Strong Word (578)


When Peace Like a River (763)


Jesus Loves Me (588)


Beloved Organist Susan Ballou's Hymns

"You'll Never Walk Alone"

When you walk through a storm
Keep your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho' your dreams
Be tossed and blown

Walk on, Walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
