Early Seek the Savior Lyrics
 
 

1) Brighten the Corner Where You Are

Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do,
Do not wait to shed your light afar,
To the many duties ever near you now be true,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Brighten the corner where you are,
Brighten the corner where you are;
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;
Brighten the corner where you are.

Just above are clouded skies that you may help to clear,
Let not narrow self your way debar,
Tho’ into one heart alone may fall your song of cheer,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Here for all your talent you may surely find a need,
Here reflect the bright and morning star,
Even from your humble hand the bread of life may feed,
Brighten the corner where you are.


2) I Have the Joy

I have the joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart,
Down in my heart, down in my heart;
I have the joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.

I have the peace that passeth understanding down in my heart,
Down in my heart, down in my heart;
I have the peace that passeth understanding down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.

I have the love of Jesus, love of Jesus, down in my heart,
Down in my heart, down in my heart;
I have the love of Jesus, love of Jesus, down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.


3) Climb, Climb Up Sunshine Mountain

Climb, climb up sunshine mountain, Heav’nly breezes blow;
Climb, climb up sunshine mountain, Faces all aglow;
Turn, turn from sin and doubting, Look to God on high;
Climb, climb up sunshine mountain, You and I.


4) Anywhere With Jesus

Anywhere with Jesus I can safely go,
Anywhere He leads me in this world below;
Anywhere without Him, dearest joys would fade,
Anywhere with Jesus I am not afraid.

Anywhere! Anywhere! Fear I cannot know;
Anywhere with Jesus I can safely go.

Anywhere with Jesus I can go to sleep,
When the gloomy shadows ‘round about me creep;
Knowing I shall waken nevermore to roam;
Anywhere with Jesus will be home, sweet home.


5) He Loves Me Too

God sees the little sparrow fall, It meets His tender view;
If God so loves the little bird, I know He loves me too.

He loves me too, He loves me too, I know He loves me too;
Because He loves the little things, I know He loves me too.

He paints the lily of the field, Perfumes each lily bell;
If He so loves the little flow’rs, I know He loves me well.

God made the little birds and flow’rs, And all things large and small;
He’ll not forget His little ones, I know He loves them all.


6) Jesus Loves Even Me

I am so glad that our Father in heav’n Tells of His love in the book He has giv’n.
Wonderful things in the Bible I see; This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.

I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus loves even me.

O, if there’s only one song I can sing, When in His beauty I see the great King;
This shall my song in eternity be: “O, what a wonder that Jesus loves me.”

 

 

7) Isn't He Wonderful

 

Isn't He Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful,

Isn't Jesus, my Lord, wonderful!

Eyes have seen, ears have heard,

It's recorded in God's Word,

Isn't Jesus, my Lord, wonderful!

 


8) Jesus Loves the Little Children

Jesus loves the little children, All the children of the world;
Red and yellow, black and white, all are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.


9) Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam

Jesus wants me for a sunbeam, To shine for Him each day;
In ev’ry way try to please Him, At home, at school, at play.

A sunbeam, a sunbeam, Jesus wants me for a sunbeam;
A sunbeam, a sunbeam, I’ll be a sunbeam for Him.

Jesus wants me to be loving, And kind to all I see;
Showing how pleasant and happy His little one can be.

 


10) Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me! this I know, For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong, They are weak, but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me;
Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! He who died Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in.

Jesus loves me! He will stay Close beside me all the way;
If I love Him, by and by He will take me home on high.


11) More About Jesus

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


12) Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise Him, praise Him, all ye little children, God is love, God is love;
Praise Him, praise Him, all ye little children, God is love, God is love.

Love Him, love Him...Serve Him, serve Him...

13) Missionary Band

We are but a band of children, We are few and weak and small,
But we want to work for Jesus, And there’s work enough for all.

We are a missionary band, missionary band, missionary band;
We are a missionary band, Doing all we can.

There are many little children Far away across the sea;
Who have never heard of Jesus, But to idols bend the knee.

So we want to send them teachers, Who will teach them how to pray
To the dear and loving Saviour, Who will wash their sins away.


14) Smile, Smile, Smile

There’s something quite peculiar about this world of ours;
Sometimes you live in sunshine bright, sometimes you live in show’rs;
But if you would keep happy when things are looking bad,
Just lift the corner of your mouth and make believe you’re glad, And..

Smile, smile, smile, and keep right on a’smiling;
Smile, smile, smile, and clouds will pass away;
Smile, smile, smile, it’s better far than pining,
You never mind the shadows on a sunny day.

And so like birds and sunbeams, we should be cheery too,
And try in ev’ry single thing our very best to do;
Then drive away ill temper, forget to frown or pout,
For Mr. Grouchman’s waiting ’round to catch you, just look out. So...

Smile, smile, smile, ...


15) ‘Tis Love That Makes Us Happy

‘Tis love that makes us happy, ‘Tis love that smoothes the way;
It helps us mind, it makes us kind To others ev’ry day.

God is love; we’re His little children. God is love, we would be like Him.
‘Tis love that makes us happy, ‘Tis love that smoothes the way;
It helps us mind, it makes us kind To others ev’ry day.

This world is full of sorrow, Of sickness, death, and sin;
With loving heart we’ll do our part And try some soul to win.

And when this life is over, And we are called above,
Our song shall be, eternally, Of Jesus and His love.



16) Wonderful Words of Life

Sing them over again to me, Wonderful words of life;
Let me more of their beauty see, Wonderful words of life.
Words of life and beauty, Teach me faith and duty.

Beautiful words, wonderful words, Wonderful words of life;
Beautiful words, wonderful words, Wonderful words of life.

Christ, the blessed One gives to all Wonderful words of life;
Sinner, list’ to the loving call, Wonderful words of life.
All so freely given, Wooing us to heaven.

Sweetly echo the gospel call, Wonderful words of life;
Offer pardon and peace to all, Wonderful words of life.
Jesus, only Savior, Sanctify forever.


17) Dare to Be a Daniel

Standing by a purpose true, Heeding God’s command,
Honor them the faithful few! All hail to Daniel’s Band!

Dare to be a Daniel, Dare to stand alone,
Dare to have a purpose firm! Dare to make it known!

Many mighty men are lost, Daring not to stand,
Who for God had been a host, By joining Daniel’s Band!

Many giants, great and tall, Stalking thro’ the land,
Headlong to the earth would fall, If met by Daniel’s Band!


18) Do, Lord

I’ve got a home in gloryland that outshines the sun,
I’ve got a home in gloryland that outshines the sun;
I’ve got a home in gloryland that outshines the sun,
‘Way beyond the blue.

Do, Lord, O do, Lord, O do remember me,
Do, Lord, O do, Lord, O do remember me;
Do, Lord, O do, Lord, O do remember me,
“Way beyond the blue.

I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too,
I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too;
I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too,
He is calling you.


19) In the Temple

In the temple, in the temple Stood a little boy one day,
And the doctors wondered greatly At the words they heard Him say.

It was Jesus! It was Jesus! He was but a little child,
But the light of heav’n was shining In His face so pure and mild.

It was Jesus who was teaching, and they listened to His word,
As He told them of His mission From the great and mighty Lord.

Let us ever then be loyal To our God, and church, and home;
Ever faithful, ever trusting, Never minding what may come.


20) I Will Early Seek the Savior

I will early seek the Saviour, I will learn of Him each day;
I will follow in His footsteps, I will walk the narrow way.

For He loves me, yes, He loves me, Jesus loves me, this I know;
Jesus loves me, died to save me, This is why I love Him so.

I will hasten where He bids me, I am not too young to go
In the pathway where He leadeth, Not too young His will to know.

He is standing at the doorway of escape from ev’ry sin;
I will knock, for He has promised, He will hear and let me in.


21) Jesus Bids Us Shine

Jesus bids us shine with a clear, pure light, Like a little candle burning in the night;
In this world of darkness we must shine, You in your small corner, And I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine first of all for Him; Well He sees and knows it if our light is dim;
He looks down from heaven, sees us shine, You in your small corner, And I in mine.


22) Into My Heart

Into my heart, Into my heart, Come into my heart, Lord Jesus;
Come in today, Come in to stay, Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.



23) The Boat on Galilee

When Jesus lived on the earth long ago, And taught the people here,
He went in a boat on the blue Galilee, With His disciples dear.

Rock, rock, rock, little boat on the sparkling sea, 
Rock, rock, rock, dear Jesus rides in thee;
Rock, rock, rock, o’er the waters swiftly flee,
For Jesus rides in the little boat on blue Galilee.

He had toiled that day doing good to all, Was tired as He could be;
So He went to sleep in the little boat, On beautiful Galilee.

Rock, rock, rock, little boat on the sparkling sea,
Softly rock, dear Jesus sleeps in thee;
Rock, rock, rock, o’er the waters softly flee,
For Jesus sleeps in the little boat on blue Galilee.

When Jesus woke and saw the storm, He said to the waves, “Be still!”
Then the sky grew bright and the winds were calm, The waves obeyed His will.

Rock, rock, rock, little boat on the sparkling sea,
Rock, rock, rock, dear Jesus rides in thee;
Rock, rock, rock, o’er the waters swiftly flee,
For Jesus rides in the little boat on blue Galilee.


24) Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

Tell me the stories of Jesus I love to hear;
Things I would ask Him to tell me If He were here;
Scenes by the wayside, Tales of the sea,
Stories of Jesus, Tell them to me.

First let me hear how the children stood ‘round His knee,
And I shall fancy His blessing resting on me;
Words full of kindness, deeds full of grace,
All in the lovelight of Jesus’ face.

Into the city I’d follow the children’s band,
Waving a branch of the palm tree high in my hand;
One of His heralds, Yes, I would sing
Loudest hosannas, “Jesus in King!”


25) All Through the Night

Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee All thro’ the night;
Guardian angels God will send thee All thro’ the night.
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping Hill and vale in slumber sleeping,
I my loving vigil keeping All thro’ the night.

While the moon her watch is keeping All thro’ the night;
While the weary world is sleeping All thro’ the night.
O’er thy spirit gently stealing, visions of the light revealing,
Breathes a pure and holy feeling All thro’ the night.


26) Brahms’ Lullaby

Lullaby and good night, with roses bedight
With lilies o’er spread is baby’s wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumbers be blest,
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumbers be blest.

Lullaby and good night, thy mother’s delight
Bright angels beside my darling abide.
They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast.
They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast.

...Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me;
Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so...

Lullaby and good night, with roses bedight
With lillies o’er spread is baby’s wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumbers be blest,
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumbers be blest.
