Abide with me
All hail the power of Jesu’s me
All people that on earth do dwell
All things bright and beautiful
All through the night
Amazing grace
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Eternal Father, strong to save
Fight the good fight with all thy might
Glorious things of Thee are spoken
Grant me the peace – beyond earthly knowing
Guide me, O thou great Jehovah
Here is love, vast as the ocean
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty
How great thou art
I’d not ask a life that’s easy
I heard Thy gentle voice
I need Thee every hour
I sing the mighty power of God
Jesus, lover of my soul
Jesus loves me, this I know
Let us praise the Lord triumphant
Love divine, all loves excelling
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
Morning has broken
Nearer, my God, to Thee
O Jesus, let Thy spirit bless
O worship the King, all glorious above
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
One blessing grant, O Lord
Onward Christian soldiers
Rock of ages, cleft for me
Round the Lord in glory seated
The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want
To God be the glory
We plough the fields and scatter
What a friend we have in Jesus
You did this mighty deed, O Christ, God’s Son
