What is one of your favorite hymns ?

I just wanted to know if you would share one of you favorite hymns , and if you would include the lyrics or some of your favorite parts of the song. Thank you for sharing. I will share with you one of my favorites.

Have Thine Own Way

1. Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!

Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.

Mold me and make me after Thy will,

While I am waiting, yielded and still.

2. Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!

Search me and try me, Master, today!

Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,

As in Thy presence humbly I bow.

3. Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!

Wounded and weary, help me, I pray!

Power, all power, surely is Thine!

Touch me and heal me, Savior divine.

4. Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!

Hold o’er my being absolute sway!

Fill with Thy Spirit till all shall see

Christ only, always, living in me.

I just love this song so much, so many of these things are my heart's desire, for God to just have His own way in me.

with all sincerity,

andrew

    "Search me, O God"

    Search me, O God,

    And know my heart today;

    Try me, O Savior,

    Know my thoughts, I pray.

    See if there be

    Some wicked way in me;

    Cleanse me from every sin

    And set me free.

    I praise Thee, Lord,

    For cleansing me from sin;

    Fulfill Thy Word,

    And make me pure within.

    Fill me with fire

    Where once I burned with shame;

    Grant my desire

    To magnify Thy Name.

    Lord, take my life,

    And make it wholly Thine;

    Fill my poor heart

    With Thy great love divine.

    Take all my will,

    My passion, self and pride;

    I now surrender, Lord

    In me abide.

    O Holy Ghost,

    Revival comes from Thee;

    Send a revival,

    Start the work in me.

    Thy Word declares

    Thou wilt supply our need;

    For blessings now,

    O Lord, I humbly plead.

    This is my heart's desire each and every day! God bless you!!!

    Pastor Art took my most favorite hymn, so I'll go with my second best, which is The Lighthouse:

    The Lighthouse

    There's a lighthouse on the hillside

    that overlooks life's sea.

    When I'm tossed it sends out

    a light that I might see.

    And the light that shines in darkness

    now will safely lead me home,

    If it wasn't for the lighthouse,

    my ship would sail no more.

    Everyone that lives around us,

    says tear that old lighthouse down,

    The big ships don't sail this way anymore,

    ain't no use in it standing round.

    But then my mind goes back to that stormy night,

    when just in time I saw the light

    With the light from that old lighthouse,

    that stands there on the hill.

    Chorus

    And I thank God for The Lighthouse.

    I owe my life to Him

    Jesus is The Lighthouse

    and from the rocks of sin

    He has shown the light all around me

    so that I might clearly see.

    If it wasn't for The Lighthouse,

    Where would this ship be?

    I found this particular one on Mamarocks.com on their inspirational page. It plays the music so you can sing along. I've soloed that song more times than I can count. Of course, it bacame even more precious when a group from Tennessee came to build a lighthouse in our church parking lot, and we became known as The Lighthouse church.

    Of course, I've got lots of other favorites, and actually marked them down on a piece of paper I keep in my Bible book cover. Every one of them speaks to a different place I was at when that song played and that song became more real to me. <*)))><

    To God be the glory, great things He has done;

    So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,

    Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,

    And opened the life gate that all may go in.

    Refrain

    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

    Let the earth hear His voice!

    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

    Let the people rejoice!

    O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,

    And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

    O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,

    To every believer the promise of God;

    The vilest offender who truly believes,

    That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

    Refrain

    Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,

    And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;

    But purer, and higher, and greater will be

    Amazing Grace

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

    That saved a wretch like me.

    I once was lost but now am found,

    Was blind, but now I see.

    T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.

    And Grace, my fears relieved.

    How precious did that Grace appear

    The hour I first believed.

    Through many dangers, toils and snares

    I have already come;

    'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far

    and Grace will lead me home.

    The Lord has promised good to me.

    His word my hope secures.

    He will my shield and portion be,

    As long as life endures.

    Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,

    And mortal life shall cease,

    I shall possess within the veil,

    A life of joy and peace.

    When we've been here ten thousand years

    Bright shining as the sun.

    We've no less days to sing God's praise

    Than when we've first begun.

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

    That saved a wretch like me.

    I once was lost but now am found,

    Was blind, but now I see.

    This song really inspires and encourages my heart. - Words by Horatio G. Spafford, 1873

    - Music by Philip P. Bliss, 1876

    The words to this hymn was written after two major traumas in Spafford's life. The first was the Great Chicago Fire of October 1871, which ruined him financially. Shortly after, while crossing the Atlantic, all four of Spafford's daughters died in a collision with another ship. Spafford's wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telegram: "SAVED ALONE." Several weeks later, as Spafford's own ship passed near the spot where his daughters died, he was inspired to write these words.

    Bliss originally named the tune "Ville de Havre" after the ship on which Spafford's four girls perished, the SS Ville de Havre. Ironically, Bliss himself died in a tragic train wreck shortly after writing this music.

    1. When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,

    When sorrows like sea billows roll;

    Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,

    It is well, it is well, with my soul.

    * Refrain:

    It is well, with my soul,

    It is well, it is well, with my soul.

    2. Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

    Let this blest assurance control,

    That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

    And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

    3. My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

    My sin, not in part but the whole,

    Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

    4. For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:

    If Jordan above me shall roll,

    No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life

    Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

    5. But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,

    The sky, not the grave, is our goal;

    Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!

    Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

    6. And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,

    The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;

    The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,

    Even so, it is well with my soul.

    My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness,

    I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' Name.

    On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand,

    All other ground is sinking sand.

    When darkness veils His lovely Face I rest on His unchanging grace.

    When all earthly props give way, He is all my Hope and Stay.

    On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand,

    All other ground is sinking sand.

    Holy, Holy, Holy

    I used to love this song, when I was little.

    Since then I learned the word Holy means Pure,

    and it has given me a whole new understanding of the Holy Bible, and what God values in us.

    Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

    Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.

    Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,

    God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

    Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,

    casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

    cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,

    which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

    Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,

    though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,

    only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,

    perfect in power, in love and purity.

    Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

    All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea.

    Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,

    God in three persons, blessed Trinity.
