No-one but Jesus

(Original title: ”Vain yksin Jeesus”, music and lyrics: Eeva Vaija.
English translation: Betty Spackman, Nina Åström 2018)

No-one but Jesus will ever be enough
in Him my heart is calmed when times are rough
in stillness waiting at His cross brings rest
in Him alone I receive all that is best

Our life’s a breath, a swaying, flickering flame
if we have fortune, or if we have fame
our happy days, our moments end so fast
only in Jesus is joy – that will last

No-one but Jesus can get me through the night
when my heart’s full of anguish, full of fright
through wilderness so deep, I’m lost, alone
no-one but Jesus will guide my way back home

No-one but Jesus will step into my boat
when waves are raging, He keeps me afloat
Oh help me Lord! I cry out in my fear
He calms the storm in me because He’s near

Jesus is with me when my eyes close at last
and heaven’s gates open inviting me to pass
He is with me when I leave this time and space
move to my Father’s house and see His face

All the Way My Saviour Leads Me

(Fanny Crosby-van Alstyne)

All the way my Savior leads me
what have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy
who through life has been my guide?
Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort
here by faith in Him do dwell
For I know, whate’er befall me
Jesus doeth all things well

All the way my Savior leads me
cheers each winding path I tread
Gives me grace for every trial
feeds me with the living bread
Though my weary steps may falter
and my soul athirst may be
Gushing from the Rock before me
Lo! a spring of joy I see

All the way my Savior leads me
oh, the fullness of His grace!
Perfect rest to me is promised
in my Father’s blest embrace
When my spirit, clothed immortal
wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages:
Jesus led me all the way

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

(Gerard Moultrie)

Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descending
Comes our homage to demand.

King of kings, yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth He stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
In the body and the blood;
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heavenly food.

Rank on rank the host of heaven
Spreads its vanguard on the way,
As the Light of light descendeth
From the realms of endless day,
Comes the powers of hell to vanquish
As the darkness clears away.

At His feet the six winged seraph,
Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the presence,
As with ceaseless voice they cry:
Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Lord Most High!

Holy, Holy, Holy

(Reginald Heber)

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
who 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, 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!
