Tracklist

The Old Rugged Cross

length: 4:10
composer: George Bennard
lyricist: George Bennard

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame;
and I love that old cross where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.
Refrain:
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
and exchange it some day for a crown.

2. O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
has a wondrous attraction for me;
for the dear Lamb of God left his glory above
to bear it to dark Calvary.
(Refrain)

3. In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
a wondrous beauty I see,
for 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
to pardon and sanctify me.
(Refrain)

4. To that old rugged cross I will ever be true,
its shame and reproach gladly bear;
then he'll call me some day to my home far away,
where his glory forever I'll share.
(Refrain)

Abide With Me

length: 3:04
composer: William Henry Monk
lyricist: Henry Francis Lyte
Abide with me, fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens, Lord, with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, O abide with me

I need Thy presence every passing hour
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be
Through the cloud and sunshine, O abide with me

Abide, abide with me
Abide, abide with me
I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless

I'll have no weight, and tears no bitterness
Where is death's sting?
Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still if Thou Abide with me

Abide, with me Abide, With me
Abide, abide with me
Abide, abide with me

Amazi-ing Grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a-a wretch like me
I o-once wa-as lost but now-ow I-I'm found
Was blind, but now, I see

T'was Grace tha-at taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my-why fears relieved
How pre-ecious did that Gra-ace a-appear
The hour I-I first believed

Through many-why dangers, toils and snares
I have a-already come
T'is Gra-ace tha-at brought me sa-afe thu-us far
And Grace wi-ill lead me home

When we've bee-een there ten thousand years
Bright shini-ing as the sun
We've no-o le-ess days to si-ing Go-od's praise
Then when we-ee first begun

In the Garden

length: 3:10
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The song of God discloses

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

He speaks and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

Bringing in the Sheaves

length: 2:48
lyricist: Knowles Shaw
composer: George Minor
Bringing in the sheaves bringing in the sheaves
We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves
Bringing in the sheaves bringing in the sheaves
We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves

Sowing in the morning sowing seeds of kindness
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve
Waiting for the harvest and the time of reaping
We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves
Bringing in the sheaves

Sowing in the sunshine sowing in the shadows
Fearing neither clouds nor winter's chilly breeze
By and by the harvest and the labor ended
We shall come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves
Bringing in the sheaves
(Everybody sing)
Bringing in the sheaves
