Brightly Did the Light Divine
Come, Ye Thankful People, Come
Forward! Be Our Watchword
Herald in the Wilderness
Highest and the Holiest Place, The
In Token That Thou Shalt Not Fear
Let the Church of God Rejoice
Not in Anything We Do
O Thou at Whose Divine Command
O Thou Who Hast Thy Servants Taught
O Why on Death So Bent?
Of All the Honors Man May Wear
Our Year of Grace Is Wearing to a Close
Savior, Thy Father’s Promise Send
Since We Kept the Savior’s Birth
Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand
Thou That Art the Father’s Word
Thou Who on That Wondrous Journey
Through Israel’s Coasts in Times of Old
Thy Blood, O Christ, Hath Made Our Peace
We Walk by Faith
When in the Lord Jehovah’s Name
