In The Sweet By and By // Opening
lyrics by S. Fillmore Bennett, music by Joseph P. Webster

There’s a (D)land that is (G)fairer than (D)day,
And by faith we can see it afar (A);
For the Father (D)waits over(G) the way(D)
To prepare us a dwelling(A) place there(D)

CHORUS

In the sweet(D) by and by (A),
We shall meet on that beautiful shore (D);
In the sweet by and by (G),
We shall meet (D)on that beautiful(A) shore (D).

We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed;
And our spirits shall sorrow no more,
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.

CHORUS

To our bountiful Father above,
We will offer our tribute of praise
For the glorious gift of His love
And the blessings that hallow our days.

CHORUS

Hold to God’s Unchanging Hand // In-between the Readings
Jennie Wilson and F.L. Eiland

(D) Time is filled with swift transition,
Naught of earth unmoved can (A) stand,
(D) Build your hopes on things eternal, (Bm)
(D) Hold to God’s unchang(A)ing hand. (D)

CHORUS
(D) Hold to God’s unchanging hand,
Hold to God’s unchanging (A) hand;
(D) Build your hopes on things eternal, (Bm)
(D) Hold to God’s (A) unchanging hand. (D)

Trust in Him who will not leave you,
Whatsoever years may bring,
If by earthly friends forsaken
Still more closely to Him cling.

CHORUS

Covet not this world’s vain riches
That so rapidly decay,
Seek to gain the heav’nly treasures,
They will never pass away.

CHORUS

When your journey is completed,
If to God you have been true,
Fair and bright the home in glory
Your enraptured soul will view.

Farther Along // Offering
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gGgtyy2xKw

Chorus:
(D) Farther along we’ll (G) know more (D) about it,
Farther along we’ll (E7) understand (A7) why;
Cheer up, my (D) brother, (G)  live in the (D) sunshine,
We’ll understand it (A7) all by and (D) by.

Verses:

Tempted and tried, we’re oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long;
While there are others living about us,
Never molested, though in the wrong

Sometimes I wonder why I must suffer,
Go in the rain, the cold, and the snow,
When there are many living in comfort,
Giving no heed to all I can do.

Chorus

Tempted and tried, how often we question
Why we must suffer year after year,
Being accused by those of our loved ones,
E’en though we’ve walked in God’s holy fear.

Often when death has taken our loved ones,
Leaving our home so lone and so drear,
Then do we wonder why others prosper,
Living so wicked year after year.

Chorus

“Faithful till death,” saith our loving Master;
Short is our time to labor and wait;
Then will our toiling seem to be nothing,
When we shall pass the heavenly gate.

Soon we will see our dear, loving Savior,
Hear the last trumpet sound through the sky;
Then we will meet those gone on before us,
Then we shall know and understand why.

Chorus

Why Me Lord? // Communion
Kris Kristofferson

Why me Lord, what have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the pleasures I’ve known

Tell me Lord, what did I ever do
That was worth loving you
Or the kindness you’ve shown.

Chorus: Lord help me Jesus, I’ve wasted it so
Help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I’ve need you so
Help me Jesus, my soul’s in your hand.

Tell me Lord, if you think there’s a way
I can try to repay
All I’ve taken from you

Maybe Lord, I can show someone else
What I’ve been through myself
On my way back to you.

Chorus: Lord help me Jesus, I’ve wasted it so
Help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I’ve need you so
Help me Jesus, my soul’s in your hand.

When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder // Closing Hymn
James M. Black

When the (G) trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and (C) time shall be no more, (G)
And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair; (D)
When the (G) saved of earth shall gather (C) over on the other shore, (G)
And the roll is called up (D7) yonder, I’ll be there. (G)

CHORUS
(G) When the roll is called up yonder,
When the (D7) roll is called up yonder,
When the (G) roll is called up (C) yonder,
When the (G) roll is called up (D7) yonder, I’ll be there. (G)

On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the glory of His resurrection share;
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.

CHORUS

Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.

On a (A) cold and cloudy (E) day,
When I saw the hearse come rollin’
For to take my (B7) love (E) away.

Chorus

Will the circle be unbroken?
By and by Lord, by and by,

I told the undertaker,
“Undertaker, please drive slow,
For this body you are haulin’ Lord,
I hate to see him go.”

Well I followed close behind him,
Tried to hold up and be brave,
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid him in the grave.

Wildwood in the Pines // Offertory

(D) There’s a wildwood in the pines where the (G) family used to (D) gather.

There was (D) singing on the ground.
(G) Baptisin’ in the (D) river.
Glory! Hallelujah, brother! Sweet (A) salvation there was (D) found.

So I believe that the saints go side-by-side in the land that lies up yonder.
I believe that there are streets there paved with gold.
There are people on their feet shoutin’, singin’ hallelujah!
I believe that Jesus loves me. I can feel it in my soul.

There’s a long and windin’ road that I long once more to travel.
There’s a home place in my heart sittin’ high upon a hill.
There’s a rosewood rockin’ chair and a place set at the table.
Guess I better have a little talk with Jesus. Maybe he can take me there.

So I believe that the saints go side-by-side in the land that lies up yonder.
I believe that there are streets there paved with gold.
There are people on their feet shoutin’, singin’ hallelujah!
I believe that Jesus loves me.
I can feel it in my soul.

So I believe that the saints go side-by-side in the land that lies up yonder.

Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom’s shore, to Thy shore.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21XFzAoMXUk

Chorus:
(Dm) Man gave names to all the animals
In the (A) beginning, in the (Dm) beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the (A) beginning, long time (Dm) ago

(Dm) He saw an animal that liked to (A) growl
Big furry paws and he liked to (Dm) howl
Great big furry back and furry (G) hair
“Ah, think I’ll call it a (Dm) bear”

Chorus
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal up on a hill
Chewing up so much grass until she was filled
He saw milk comin’ out but he didn’t know how
“Ah, think I’ll call it a cow”

Chorus
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal that liked to snort
Horns on his head and they weren’t too short
It looked like there wasn’t nothin’ that he couldn’t pull
“Ah, think I’ll call it a bull”

Chorus
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal leavin’ a muddy trail
Real dirty face and a curly tail
He wasn’t too small and he wasn’t too big
“Ah, think I’ll call it a pig”

Chorus
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

Next animal that he did meet
Had wool on his back and hooves on his feet
Eating grass on a mountainside so steep
“Ah, think I’ll call it a sheep”

Chorus
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal as smooth as glass
Slithering his way through the grass
Saw him disappear by a tree near a lake . . .

In various ways
Troubles he had some
But wasn’t forgotten
God sent him His love On the wings of a dove

Wayfaring Stranger // Communion
arr. Emmy Lou Harris / Ricky Scaggs

I am a (Am) poor wayfaring stranger,
While traveling (Dm) through this world of woe. (Am)
Yet there’s no sickness, toil nor danger
In that bright (Dm) world to which I go. (Am)
I’m going there (F) to see my Father (C);
I’m going there (F) no more to roam. (E)

CHORUS:

I’m only (Am) going over Jordan,
I’m only (Dm) going over (Am) home.

I know dark clouds will gather round me;
I know my way is rough and steep.
But golden fields lie out before me
Where God’s redeemed shall ever sleep.
I’m going there to see my mother,
She said she’d meet me when I come.

CHORUS

I’ll soon be free from every trial,
My body sleep in the churchyard;
I’ll drop the cross of self denial
And enter on my great reward.
I’m going there to see my Savior,
To sing His praise forevermore.

CHORUS

I Saw the Light // Closing
Music and Lyrics by Hank Williams

(E) I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin
(A) I wouldn’t let my dear Saviour in. (E)
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
(E) Praise the Lord, (B) I saw the (E) Light.

CHORUS
(E) I saw the Light, I saw the Light,
(A) No more darkness, no more night. (E)
(E) Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight,
(E) Praise the Lord, (B) I saw the (E) Light.

Just like the blind man, I wandered along,
Worries and fears, I claimed for my own.
Then like the blind man, that God, gave back his sight,
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light.

CHORUS

I was a fool to wander and stray,
For straight is the gate and narrow the way.
Now I have traded, the wrong for the right,
Praise the Lord, I saw the Light.

No wheeler dealers, here and gone men,

This train don’t carry no rustlers,
Sidestreet walkers, two bit hustlers,
This train is bound for glory, this train.

(G) If you’ve never fed the hungry, or given (C) clothes to the (G) poor,
If you’ve never helped a stranger who came (A7) knocking on your (D) door,
If you (G) forgot to send some flowers to a (C) sick and shut-in (G) friend,
well if you ain’t helping none of these, then (D) you ain’t helping (G) Him.

If you’ve ever seen some children, playing ball behind a school,
If you’ve ever watched an old man, plowing ground behind a mule,
If you’ve ever stopped and listened, when you could not hear a sound,
then brother you have met Him, because Jesus gets around.

Would you (G)recognize (C) Jesus if you (G) met Him face to face?
or would you wonder if He’s just another (A7) one you could not (D) place?
You may not (G) find Him (C) coming in a (G) chariot of the Lord,
Jesus could be riding in a (D7) “49 (G) Ford.

You can find Him in your Momma’s eyes, or in your Daddy’s face,
You can find He’s always there to help you win the human race,
You can find Him in the mountains, downtown, or by the sea,
And brother, here’s hoping someone can find him, and you and me.

Would you recognize Jesus if you met Him face to face?
or would you wonder if He’s just another one you could not place?
You may not find Him coming in a chariot of the Lord, Jesus could be riding in a “49 Ford

Would you recognize Jesus if you met Him face to face?
or would you wonder if He’s just another one you could not place?
You may not find Him coming in a chariot of the Lord, Jesus could be riding in a “49 Ford

God’s Promise // Offertory
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Ellis Paul

I didn’t promise you skies painted blue
Not all colored flowers all your days through
I didn’t promise you, sun with no rain
Joys without sorrows, peace without pain.

All that I promise is strength for this day,
Rest for my worker, and light on your way.
I give you truth when you need it, my help from above,
Undying friendship, my unfailing love.

I never did promise you crowns without trials,
Food with no hard sweat, your tears without smiles,
Hot sunny days without cold wintry snows,
No vict’ry without fightin’, no laughs without woes.

All that I promise is strength for this day,
Rest for my, worker, my light on your way,
I give you truth when you need it, my help from above,
Undying friendship, my unfailing love.

I sure didn’t say I’d give you heaven on earth,
A life with no labor no struggles no deaths,
No earthquakes no dryspells, no fire flames no droughts,
No slaving no hungers, no blizzards no blights.

All that I promise is strength for this day,
Rest for my worker, my light on your way,
I give you truth when you need it, my help from above,
Undying friendship, my unfailing love.

I promise you power, this minute this hour,
The power you need when you fall down to bleed,
I give you my peace, and my strength to pull home
My love for all races all creeds and all kinds.

My flavors my saviors my creeds of all kinds,
My love for my saviors, all colors all kinds,
My love for my races all creeders all kinds,
My saviors my flavors my dancers all kinds,
My dancers my prancers my singers all kinds,
My flavors my saviors my dancers all kinds.

When He Offers His Hand // Communion
Townes Van Zandt

Chorus:
When he offers his hand
Don’t you turn him away
He can lead you to light
Through the darkest of days
With his love wrapped around you
You can’t go astray
When he offers his hand
Don’t you turn him away
Verse:
In a world full of sorrow
A world full of hate
You can’t wait for tomorrow
’cause tomorrow’s to late
Come and stand amongst the pilgrims
In their golden array
When he offers his hand
Don’t you turn him away
Chorus
Verse:
I am no simon,
No matthew, no paul
It don’t take an apostle
To answer his call
And it don’t take a prophet
To stand up and say
When he offers his hand
Don’t you turn him away
Chorus
Verse:
I hope as I’m leavin’
My message is clear
It’s a fool that would turn down
A gift that’s so dear
When he offers his blood
Your debts to repay
Now he offers his hand
Don’t you turn him away
Chorus

This Land is Your Land // Closing
Woody Guthrie

This land is your land This land is my land
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and Me.

As I was walking that ribbon of highway,
I saw above me that endless skyway:
I saw below me that golden valley: I said
This land was made for you and me.

I’ve roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts;
And all around me a voice was sounding:
This land was made for you and me.

This land is your land This land is my land
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and Me.

Was a high wall there that tried to stop me
A sign was painted said: Private Property,
But on the back side it didn’t say nothing —
This land was made for you and Me.

When the sun come shining, then I was strolling
In wheat fields waving and dust clouds rolling;
The voice was chanting as the fog was lifting:
This Land was made for you and me

One bright sunny morning in the shadow of the steeple
By the Relief Office I saw my people —
As they stood hungry, I stood there wondering if
This land was made for you and me

Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.

This land is your land This land is my land
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and Me.

He Will Set Your Fields on Fire // Between the Readings
Written by Veona Braskett and C.M. Ballew

The following link is to Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch’s version:

(D) There’s a call that rings from the throne it springs
To (G)  those now gone (D) astray
Saying, “Come ye men from your load of sin
There (E7)  at the alter (A7) lay”

Many (D) do not heed that the chains of greed
That their (G) conscience never (D) tire
Be (G) assured my friend if you (D) still offend
He will (G) set your (A7) fields on (D) fire

Chorus:

(D) Now if you don’t from sin retire
He will set your fields on (A7) fire
You have heard Jesus’ call
And in death your soul must (D) fall

Now my friend if you desire
You may join the heavenly (A7) choir
And (G) rejoice with Him free from every (D) sin
When He (G) sets this (A7) world on (D) fire

You have heard his voice, seen His soul rejoice
That trusted in His grace
You have blushed with sin as He knocked within
But still you hide your face

From the blessed Lord and His own true word
But still you say retire
Leave the downward path kindle, not His wrath
Or He’ll set your fields on fire

Chorus:

Now if you don’t from sin retire
He will set your fields on fire
You have heard Jesus’ call
And in death your soul must fall

Now my friend if you desire
You may join the heavenly choir
And rejoice with Him free from every sin
When He sets this world on fire.

Hide thou me (hide thou me)

Hide thou me
East and West the fire will roll
How will it be with my poor soul
Tide me over, Rock of Ages, cleft for me

(A) Brag about their silver and their gold
(E) People who would trade God’s promise
For its (B) treasure to hold

(E) Now people who would rather live in mansions

(E) But I’d rather have a little log cabin
By the (B) side of the (E) road

Chorus

Verse
I’d rather have a cabin by the roadside
Where the pilgrim along life’s way
Help to point souls to Jesus to that city on high

Every day I want to help scatter roses
Every night I want my light to shine abroad
With a welcome from my little bay wind
By the side of the road

Chorus
I’d rather live by the side of the road
And try to point souls to the heavenly cross
Than to be a king or millionaire
And live in mansions and bright array

I’d rather do my neighborly deed

I’d rather live by the side of the road

Farther Along // Offering

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gGgtyy2xKw

Chorus:

(D) Farther along we’ll (G) know more (D) about it,
Farther along we’ll (E7) understand (A7) why;
Cheer up, my (D) brother, (G)  live in the (D) sunshine,
We’ll understand it (A7) all by and (D) by.

Verses:

Tempted and tried, we’re oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long;
While there are others living about us,
Never molested, though in the wrong

Sometimes I wonder why I must suffer,
Go in the rain, the cold, and the snow,
When there are many living in comfort,
Giving no heed to all I can do.

Chorus

Tempted and tried, how often we question
Why we must suffer year after year,
Being accused by those of our loved ones,
E’en though we’ve walked in God’s holy fear.

Often when death has taken our loved ones,
Leaving our home so lone and so drear,
Then do we wonder why others prosper,
Living so wicked year after year.

Chorus

“Faithful till death,” saith our loving Master;
Short is our time to labor and wait;
Then will our toiling seem to be nothing,
When we shall pass the heavenly gate.

Soon we will see our dear, loving Savior,
Hear the last trumpet sound through the sky;
Then we will meet those gone on before us,
Then we shall know and understand why.

Chorus

I’m Going Through // Communion

Herbert Buffum, arr. by Thoro Harris, 1914

(D) Lord, I have started to (G) walk in the (D) light
That shines on my pathway so (E) clearly, so (A) bright;
I’ve (D) bade the world and its (G) follies (D) adieu,
And now with my Savior I (A) mean to go (D) through.

(Refrain)

(D) I’m going through, I’m (G) going (D) through,
I’ll pay the price, (E) whatever others (A) do;
I’ll (D) take the way with the (G) Lord’s despised (D) few
I’m going through, Jesus, (A) I’m going (D) through.

Many once started to run in this race,
But with our Redeemer they could not keep pace;
Others accepted because it was new,
But not very many seem bound to go through.

(Refrain)

I’m going through, I’m going through,
I’ll pay the price, whatever others do;
I’ll take the way with the Lord’s despised few
I’m going through, Jesus, I’m going through.

Let me but follow my Lord all alone,
And have for my pillow, like Jacob, a stone,
Rather than vain worldly pleasures pursue,
Than turn from this pathway and fail to go through.

(Refrain)

I’m going through, I’m going through,
I’ll pay the price, whatever others do;
I’ll take the way with the Lord’s despised few
I’m going through, Jesus, I’m going through.

Come then, my comrades, and walk in this way
That leads to the kingdom of unending day;
Turn from your idols and join with the few,
Start in with your Savior, and keep going through.

(Refrain)

I’m going through, I’m going through,
I’ll pay the price, whatever others do;
I’ll take the way with the Lord’s despised few
I’m going through, Jesus, I’m going through

Won’t you show me the way

Breaking Bread // Communion
-Johnny Cash

(C) Breakin bread
Breakin (Am) bread
we are (F) gathered here (G) together to break (C) bread
(C) Breakin bread
Breakin (Am) bread
we are (F) gathered here (G) together to break (C) bread

it’s not the (G) barely or the (C) wheat
it’s not the (F) oven or the (G) heat
that makes this bread this so good to (C) eat
it’s the (F) needing and the sharing that (Dm) makes the meal (G) complete (G7)

(C) Breakin bread
Breakin (Am) bread
we are (F) gathered here (G) together to break (C) bread
(C) Breakin bread
Breakin (Am) bread
we are (F) gathered here (G) together to break (C) bread

upon the water bread is cast
the last is first the first is last
for everyone who eats this bread
there are thousands maybe more that will be fed

(C) Breakin bread
Breakin (Am) bread
we are (F) gathered here (G) together to break (C) bread
(C) Breakin bread
Breakin (Am) bread
we are (F) gathered here (G) together to break (C) bread

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms // Closing
Lyrics by Elisha A. Hoffman, music by Anthony J. Showalter

(G) What a fellowship, (C) what a joy divine,
(G) leaning on the everlasting (D) arms;
(G) what a blessedness, (C) what a peace is mine,
(G) leaning on the ever(D)lasting (G) arms.

CHORUS
(G) Leaning, (C) leaning,
(G) safe and secure from all (D) alarms;
(G) leaning, (C) leaning,
(G) leaning on the ever(D)lasting (G)arms.

O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path grows from day to day,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

CHORUS

What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

CHORUS
