HONEST HYMNS (IF WE SANG THE WAY WE FELT!)
WHEN MORNING GILDS THE SKIES
MY HEART AWAKENING CRIES
oh no, another day.
AMAZING GRACE HOW SWEET THE SOUND
THAT SAVED A WRETCH LIKE
I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY
have you heard about Jim and Sally?
THE CHURCH'S ONE FOUNDATION
is tax deductible.
I LOVE THY CHURCH, O GOD,
HER WALLS BEFORE ME STAND;
but please excuse my absence, Lord,
my bed feels simply grand!
A CHARGE TO KEEP I HAVE,
A GOD TO GLORIFY;
but Lord, don't ask for cash from me,
that price comes too high.
AM I A SOLDIER OF THE CROSS,
A FOLLOWER OF THE LAMB?
yes! though I seldom pray or pay,
I still insist I am.
MUST JESUS BEAR THE CROSS ALONE,
AND ALL THE WORLD GO FREE?
no! others, Lord, should do their part,
but please don't count on me.
PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW,
PRAISE HIM, ALL CREATURES HERE BELOW!
oh, loud my hymns of praise I bring,
because it doesn't cost to sing!
