O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Be Ready When the Bridegroom Comes
Come, Oh, Come to Me
Day of All Days, The
In the Shadow of His Wings
Never Say Goodbye
Revive the Hearts of All
When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder
We Shall Reign with Him in Glory
Where Jesus Died for Me


All the Day
Answering Time Will Come, The
Beautiful Eden Bells
Beautiful Way, The
Easter Bells
Home in My Heart for Jesus, A
I Remember Calvary
Look to the Lamb of God
Sweet Voices
When the Saints Are Marching In
Where Jesus Is, ’Tis Heaven
