Be Ye Glad – Sunday Songs

A rendition of Be Ye Glad by Buddy Greene.
A wonderful day of worship and fellowship with God’s people.
Glad indeed.

The lyrics:
1.
In these days of confused situations.
In these nights of a restless remorse,
When the heart and the soul of the nation,
lay wounded and cold as a corpse.
From the grave of the innocent Adam,
comes a song bringing joy to the sad.
Oh your cry has been heard and the ransom,
has been paid up in full, Be Ye Glad.
Chorus
Oh, Be Ye Glad, Be Ye Glad,
Every debt that you ever had
Has been paid up in full by the grace of the Lord,
Be Ye Glad, Be Ye Glad, Be Ye Glad.
2.
From the dungeon a rumor is stirring.
You have heard it again and again.
But this time the cell keys are turning,
and outside there are faces of friends.
And though your body lay weary from wasting,
and your eyes show the sorrow they’ve had.
Oh the love that your heart is now tasting
has opened the gate, Be Ye Glad.
Chorus.
3.
So be like lights on the rim of the water,
giving hope in a storm sea of night.
Be a refuge amidst the slaughter,
for these fugitives in their flight.
For you are timeless and part of a puzzle.
You are winsome and young as a lad.
And there is no disease or no struggle,
that can pull you from God, Be Ye Glad.
Chorus.

And who can’t use a bit more encouragement?

A Hymn To God The Father – Sunday Songs

A Hymn To God The Father is a song based on poetry by John Donne as sung by Buddy Greene.

A Hymn to God the Father

Wilt thou forgive that sin where I begun,
Which was my sin, though it were done before?
Wilt thou forgive that sin, through which I run,
And do run still, though still I do deplore?
When thou hast done, thou hast not done,
For I have more.

Wilt thou forgive that sin which I have won
Others to sin, and made my sin their door?
Wilt thou forgive that sin which I did shun
A year or two, but wallow’d in, a score?
When thou hast done, thou hast not done,
For I have more.

I have a sin of fear, that when I have spun
My last thread, I shall perish on the shore;
But swear by thyself, that at my death thy Son
Shall shine as he shines now, and heretofore;
And, having done that, thou hast done;
I fear no more.

Great Is The Lord God – Sunday Songs

This song by Michael Kelly Blanchard is different from a few other songs with the title Great Is The Lord.
This rendition is sung by Buddy Greene.

The lyrics:
Great is the Lord God
Greatly to be praised with your whole heart
And great is the Lord God
Worthy of our praise
Great is the Lord God
Wondrous are His ways with His people
And great is the Lord God
Worthy of our praise
He has found me in my misery
He has freed me from my shame
He has saved me from self-tyranny
Holy is his name
He has pulled me out of darkness
He has brought me into light
He has loved me with His tenderness
How He’s blessed . . .
. . . All of my life is His
All of my sins He forgives
All of my days I will live in His love
All of my life is His
All of my sins He forgives
All of my days I will live in His love
In His love
(Repeat from the beginning)
Great is the Lord God
Great is the Lord God
Greatly to be praised with your whole heart
Great is the Lord God
Love Him, Love Him
Great is the Lord God
Wondrous are His ways with his people
Great is the Lord God
Worthy of our praise
He is worthy, worthy of our praise
