Suggested Tune Something for thee ( 6 6.5.) [click tune name to play midi]

1. How can I hold my tongue
basking in the light?
Your steadfast love, O Lord
is my pure delight.
In shadow of your wings
my soul in rapture sings -
once more I see you bring
fledgling day from night.


2.  What can I do but praise
your transforming grace?
Once I was desolate,
hopeless in disgrace;
forsaken now no more,
in Christ I find the door,
fling myself to the floor
here before your Face!


3.  Plain, simple though I am,
nothing grand or fine,
your touch brings greater things -
water into wine!
Your Gifts enable me,
Your Guidance helps me see,
Your pow'r is changing me,
Holy Ghost Divine!


4.  Each change you bring in me
magnifies your Name;
grow in me ways to serve
to increase your fame!
Fountain of lasting Life,
you end our dying night;
now dawns your living Light
keeping best for last!
