Sunday Hymns – Sunlight, Sunlight

Here is an upbeat song we sang last Sunday. It tells the story of someone being saved, living through the hard times with the Lord, the good times with God, journeying in this life, and looking forward to being with the Lord.

“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of the darkness, hath shined in our hearts.” II Corinthians 4:6

Sunlight, Sunlight
Words by Judson W. Van DeVenter & music by Winfred S. Weeden

1. I wandered in the shades of night,
Till Jesus came to me,
And with the sunlight of His love
Bid all my darkness flee.

Chorus:
Sunlight, sunlight in my soul today,
Sunlight, sunlight all along the way;
Since the Savior found me
Took away my sin,
I have had the sunlight of his love within.

2. Though clouds may gather in the sky,
And billows round me roll,
However dark the world may be,
I’ve sunlight in my soul.

Chorus

3. While walking in the light of God,
I sweet communion find;
O press with holy vigor on,
And leave the world behind.

Chorus

4. I cross the wide-extended fields,
I journey o’er the plain,
And in the sunlight of His love
I reap the golden grain.

Chorus

5. Soon I shall see Him as He is,
The light that came to me,
Behold the brightness of his face,
Throughout eternity.

Chorus

Sunday Hymns – Onward Christian Soldiers

Last Sunday we sang “Onward Christian Soldiers.” This hymn fits with the biblical teaching of the Christian life as a war.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (Ephesians 6:10-20)

“Onward, Christian Soldiers”
Words by Sabine S. Baring-Gould & music by Arthur S. Sullivan

1. Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
going on before!
Christ, the royal Master,
leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
see his banner go!

Chorus:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
going on before!

2. At the sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
on to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
at the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
loud your anthems raise!

Chorus

3. Like a mighty army
moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine,
one in charity.

Chorus

4. Onward, then, ye people,
join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
in the triumph song;
Glory, laud, and honor,
unto Christ the King;
This through countless ages
men and angels sing.

Chorus
