“There’s More With Us”

 There’s more with us than be with them;

We’re on the winning side;

With banners unfurled,

We’ll tell the whole world,

That Jesus is Captain and Guide;

There’s naught to fear

When He is near,

Though fierce the conflict may be;

We’ll never give in

In the fight against sin;

With Christ there is victory.

 

There’s more with us than be with them;

Lord open our eyes to see;

The mountains around,

With chariots abound,

We’re trusting alone in Thee;

The devil may boast

And martial his host,

And march in the battle array;

With Christ in the lead

We are sure to succeed;

We’re certain to win the day.

 

There’s more with us than be with them;

God lives and He answers prayer;

Though numbers are few,

His promise is true,

No need for a fear or a care;

The critics may jeer,

And infidels sneer,

And sow dissension and doubt;

God’s truth shall endure,

Our foundation is sure;

There’s naught to worry about.

 

There’s more with us than be with them;

He’s promised to come again;

With signs appearing,

The time is nearing,

He’s coming to earth to reign;

When satan is bound,

The whole earth around,

We’ll crown Him King of kings;

The conflict will cease,

With His Kingdom of peace;

We’ll join the chorus and sing.  (Repeat verse one after verse four only)

“Love Divine”

 

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 heart.

 

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,
Into every troubled breast!
Let us all in Thee inherit;
Let us find that second rest.
Take away our bent to sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its Beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.

 

Come, Almighty to deliver,
Let us all Thy life receive;
Suddenly return and never,
Never more 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 love.

 

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,
Till in heaven we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

 

Charles Wesley married this date (4/8/1749) to Miss Sarah Gwynne.
