The Sentences






The Lordís my shepherd, Iíll not want;

he makes me down to lie
in pastures green; he leadeth me
the quiet waters by.

My soul he doth restore again,
and me to walk doth make
within the paths of righteousness,
e'en for his own nameís sake.


Yea, though I walk through deathís dark vale,
yet will I fear none ill;
for thou art with me, and thy rod
and staff me comfort still.

My table thou has furnished
in presence of my foes;
my head thou dost with oil anoint,
and my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
shall surely follow me;
and in Godís house for evermore
my dwelling-place shall be.

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame;
and I love that old cross where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.

So Iíll cherish the old rugged cross
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross
and exchange it some day for a crown.

O, the old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
has a wondrous attraction for me;
for the dear Lamb of God left his glory above
to bear it to dark Calvary.

In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
a wondrous beauty I see;
for ítwas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died
to pardon and sanctify me.

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
its shame and reproach gladly bear;
then heíll call me some day to my home far away,
when his glory for ever Iíll share.

the darkness falls at thy behest;
to thee our morning hymns ascended,
thy praise shall sanctify our rest.

while earth rolls onward into light,

the dawn leads on another day,
the voice of prayer is never silent,
nor dies the strain of praise away.

The sun that bids us rest is waking
our brethren íneath the western sky,
and hour by hour fresh lips are making
thy wondrous doings heard on high.

like earthís proud empires, pass away;
thy kingdom stands, and grows for ever,
till all thy creatures own thy sway.
