Prayer Week 2020
Suggested Songs & Hymns 

Sunday, Day 1

‘My Jesus, I Love Thee’
William R. Featherstone, Adoniram J. Gordon

My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign;
My gracious Redeemer my Savior art Thou:
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now. 

I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow:
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now. 

I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
And sat when the death-dew lies cold on my brow:
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now. 

In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I’ll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow: 
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now.

Monday, Day 2

‘Be Thou My Vision
Mary E. Byrne, Eleanor H. Hull

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart; 
Nought be all else to me, save that Thou art,
Thou my best thought, by day or by night, 
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light. 

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word, 
I ever with Thee, and Thou with me, Lord,
Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son; 
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one. 

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise; 
Thou mine inheritance, now and always,
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart, 
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art. 

High King of heaven, my victory won, 
May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, 
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Tuesday, Day 3

‘Dear Lord and Father of Mankind’
John Greenleaf Whittier

Dear Lord and Father of mankind, Forgive our foolish ways!
Re-clothe us in our rightful mind;
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise. 

In simple trust like theirs who heard, Beside the Syrian sea,
The gracious calling of the Lord,
Let us, like them, without a word,
Rise up and follow Thee. 

Drop Thy still dews of quietness ‘Til all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.

Wednesday, Day 4

‘I Know Not Why God’s Wondrous Grace’
D. W. Whittle, James McGranahan

I know not why God’s wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own. 

But I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able
To keep that which I’ve committed Unto Him against that day.

I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His word
Wrought peace within my heart. 

I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the word,
Creating faith in Him. 

I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I’ll walk the vale with Him,
Or meet Him in the air.

Thursday, Day 5

‘More About Jesus’
E. E. Hewitt

More about Jesus would I know,
More of His grace to others show;
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love who died for me.

More, more about Jesus, More, more about Jesus;
More of His saving fullness see, More of His love who died for me. 

More about Jesus let me learn,
More of His holy will discern;
Spirit of God, my teacher be,
Showing the things of Christ to me. 

More about Jesus; in His word,
Holding communion with my Lord;
Hearing His voice in every line,
Make each faithful saying mine. 

More about Jesus on His Throne,
Riches in glory all His own;
More of His kingdom’s sure increase;
More of His coming, Prince of Peace.

Friday, Day 6

‘We Come, O Christ, to Thee’
Edith Margaret Clarkson, John Darwall

We come O Christ to Thee, True Son of God and man,
By Whom all things consist, In Whom all life began:
In Thee alone we live and move,
And have our being in Thy love.

Thou art the Way to God, Thy blood our ransom paid;
In Thee we face our Judge and Maker unafraid.
Before the throne absolved we stand,
Thy love has met Thy law’s demand. 

Thou art the living Truth! All wisdom dwells in Thee,
Thou Source of every skill, Eternal Verity!
Thou great I Am!
In Thee we rest, True answer to our every quest. 

Thou only art true Life, To know Thee is to live
The more abundant life That earth can never give:
O risen Lord!
We live in Thee, And Thou in us eternally. 

We worship Thee, Lord Christ, Our Savior and our King,
To Thee our youth and strength Adoringly we bring:
So fill our hearts,
That men may see Thy life in us, and turn to Thee.

Saturday, Day 7

‘O Church Arise’
Keith Getty, Stuart Townend

O church, arise, and put your armor on;
Hear the call of Christ our captain.
For now the weak can say that they are strong
In the strength that God has given.
With shield of faith and belt of truth,
We’ll stand against the devil’s lies.
An army bold, whose battle cry is love,
Reaching out to those in darkness.

Our call to war, to love the captive soul,
But to rage against the captor;
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole,
We will fight with faith and valor.
When faced with trials on every side,
We know the outcome is secure.
And Christ will have the prize for which He died:
An inheritance of nations.

Arise, shine for your light has come
Arise, shine for the Risen Son
Lift your eyes, we are His radiant bride
Arise, o church arise!

Come, see the cross, where love and mercy meet,
As the Son of God is stricken;
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet,
For the Conqueror has risen!
And as the stone is rolled away,
And Christ emerges from the grave,
This victory march continues till the day
Ev’ry eye and heart shall see Him.

So Spirit, come, put strength in every stride;
Give grace for every hurdle.
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful.
As saints of old, still line the way,
Retelling triumphs of His grace,
We hear their calls, and hunger for the day
When with Christ we stand in Glory.
