Written by Sanford F. Bennett 1868

There’s a land that is fairer than day,
And by faith we can see it afar;
For the Father waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there.

◦ Refrain:
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore.

2. We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed;
And our spirits shall sorrow no more,
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.

3. To our bountiful Father above,
We will offer our tribute of praise
For the glorious gift of His love
And the blessings that hallow our days.

From Wikipedia;
"Rock of Ages"  the popular Christian hymn by Reverend Augustus Montague Toplady written in 1763 and first published in The Gospel Magazine in 1775.
The Rock of Ages, Burrington Combe where the Rev. Toplady is reputed to have sheltered from a storm

Traditionally, it is held that Rev. Toplady drew his inspiration from an incident in the gorge of Burrington Combe in the Mendip Hills in England. Toplady, a preacher in the nearby village of Blagdon, was travelling along the gorge when he was caught in a storm. Finding shelter in a gap in the gorge, he was struck by the title and scribbled down the initial lyrics on a playing card.
The fissure that is believed to have sheltered Toplady is now marked as the "Rock of Ages", both on the rock itself and on some maps, and is also reflected in the name of a nearby tea shop.
Lyrics
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Save from wrath and make me pure.

Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my eyes shall close in death,
When I rise to worlds unknown,
And behold Thee on Thy throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee. [4]

The hymn was a favourite of Prince Albert, who asked it to be played to him on his deathbed, as did Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart. It was also played at the funeral of William Ewart Gladstone.[5]
In his book Hymns That Have Helped, W. T. Stead reported "when the SS London went down in the Bay of Biscay, 11 January 1866, the last thing which the last man who left the ship heard as the boat pushed off from the doomed vessel was the voices of the passengers singing "Rock of Ages".[5]

Rank #3: Down To The River To Pray

Podcast cover
Read more
Alison Krauss made this song quite popular in the 2000 Coen brothers' film “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? where the lyrics were changed to “as I went down to the River to pray.” This was done, presumably, to adjust to the fact the scene was filmed next to a river, not a valley. 

This old Black spiritual was first collected in 1867 in a book entitled Slave Songs of the United States. Although the lyrics were apparently from slave sources the title may have been borrowed from “The Good Old Way,” which was written and published in 1835 by the famed composer William Walker. (Source of information for the song is from The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook by Wayne Erbsen)

Our version of this song has two guitars and a fiddle, as well as vocals. 
Our version of this song retains the original lyrics, (except in one verse).

Blessings,

Rank #5: What a Friend We Have in Jesus

Text: Joseph M. Scriven, 1820-1886 
Music: Charles C. Converse, 1832-1918 
Shiloh Bluegrass Gospel
1. What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.

2. Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
take it to the Lord in prayer.

3. Are we weak and heavy laden,
cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge;
take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In his arms he'll take and shield thee;

Will the Circle Be Unbroken?
Lyrics byAda R. Habershon music by Charles H. Gabriel 1907 Public Domain

G                                                                             C                        G
There are loved ones in the glory, whose dear forms you often miss.
                                                                         A7                        D
When you close your earthly story, will you join them in their bliss?
G                                           C                          G
Will the circle be unbroken, by and by, Lord, by and by?
                                                               D        G
Is a better home awaiting, in the sky, in the sky?
G                                                                 C                          G
In the joyous days of childhood, oft they told of wondrous love,
                                                               A7                       D
Pointed to the dying Savior now the dwell with Him above.
G                                                                        C                           G
You remember songs of heaven which you sang with childish voice.
                                                                               A7                             G
Do you love the hymns they taught you, or are songs of earth your choice?
G                                                                         C                     G
You can picture happy gatherings round the fireside long ago,
                                                                          A7                      G
And you think of tearful partings, when they left you here below.

Text: Ada Ruth Habershon    Music: Charles H. Gabriel
Ada Ruth Habershon (1861-1918) was a Christian hymnist, probably best known for her 1907 hymn "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?"

Ada R. Habershon was born in Marylebone, England on Jan­u­a­ry 8, 1861.She was raised in Chelsea, London, in a Christian home. In her twenties, she was a member of the circle surrounding Charles Spurgeon. She met Dwight L. Moody and Ira D. Sankey in 1884 during their preaching tour of England. At their urging, she visited the United States, delivering a series of lectures on the Old Testament that were later published.

Habershon's first foray into hymn writing came in 1899, when she wrote several hymns in the German language. She wrote her first English language hymns in 1901, while ill. In 1905, Charles M. Alexander and R. A. Torrey toured the UK, and Alexander asked Habershon to write hymns for use during this evangelistic tour. Habershon ultimately sent Alexander over 200 hymns.

Rank #8: Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

Podcast cover
Read more
A Choctaw freedman in the old Indian Territory, Wallis Willis, wrote "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" ,in what is now Choctaw County, near the County seat of Hugo, Oklahoma sometime before 1862. He was inspired by the Red River, which reminded him of the Jordan River and of the Prophet Elijah's being taken to heaven by a chariot (2 Kings 2:11). Many sources claim that this song and "Steal Away" (also composed by Willis) had lyrics that referred to the Underground Railroad, the resistance movement that helped slaves escape from the South to the North and Canada.

Alexander Reid, a minister at the Old Spencer Academy, Choctaw boarding school, heard Willis singing these two songs and transcribed the words and melodies. He sent the music to the Jubilee Singers of Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. The Jubilee Singers popularized the songs during a tour of the United States and Europe.
TRADITIONAL LYRICS
Chorus:

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home?
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.
Chorus

Sometimes I'm up, and sometimes I'm down,
(Coming for to carry me home)
But still my soul feels heavenly bound.
(Coming for to carry me home)
Chorus
The brightest day that I can say,
(Coming for to carry me home)
When Jesus washed my sins away.
(Coming for to carry me home)
Chorus

If I get there before you do,
(Coming for to carry me home)
I'll cut a hole and pull you through.
(Coming for to carry me home)
Chorus
If you get there before I do,
(Coming for to carry me home)
Tell all my friends I'm coming too.
(Coming for to carry me home)
Chorus

"Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" is a historic American Negro spiritual. The first recording was in 1909, by the Fisk Jubilee Singers of Fisk University.

In 2002, the Library of Congress honored the song as one of 50 recordings chosen that year to be added to the National Recording Registry. It was also included in the list of Songs of the Century, by the Recording Industry Association of America and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Rank #10: Shall We Gather At The River?

Podcast cover
Read more
“A pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.” Revelation 22:1-2

Words & Music: Robert Lowry, 1864; first published in Happy Voices, 1865:

One after­noon in July, 1864, when I was pastor at Han­son Place Baptist Church, Brooklyn, the weather was oppressively hot, and I was lying on a lounge in a state of physical exhaustion…My imagination began to take itself wings. Visions of the future passed before me with startling vivid­ness. The imagery of the apocalypse took the form of a tableau. Brightest of all were the throne, the heavenly river, and the gathering of the saints…I began to wonder why the hymn writers had said so much about the “river of death” and so little about the “pure water of life, clear as crystal, pro­ceed­ing out of the throne of God and the Lamb.” As I mused, the words be­gan to con­struct them­selves. They came first as a quest­on of Christian inquiry, “Shall we gather?” Then they broke in chorus, “Yes, we’ll gather.” On this question and answer the hymn developed itself. The music came with the hymn.
Robert Lowry
Shall we gather at the river,
where bright angel feet have trod,
with its crystal tide forever
flowing by the throne of God?
Refrain:
Yes, we'll gather at the river,
the beautiful, the beautiful river;
gather with the saints at the river
that flows by the throne of God.

2. On the margin of the river,
washing up its silver spray,
we will walk and worship ever,
all the happy golden day.
(Refrain)

3. Ere we reach the shining river,
lay we every burden down;
grace our spirits will deliver,
and provide a robe and crown.
(Refrain)

4. Soon we'll reach the shining river,
soon our pilgrimage will cease;
soon our happy hearts will quiver
with the melody of peace.

Rank #12: I Have Decided To Follow Jesus

Podcast cover
Read more
Our Bluegrass Version of "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus"
It is a Christian hymn originating from India.

The lyrics are based on the last words of a man in Assam, north-east India, who along with his family was converted to Christianity in the middle of the 19th century through the efforts of a Welsh missionary. Called to renounce his faith by the village chief, the convert declared, "I have decided to follow Jesus." In response to threats to his family, he continued, "Though no one joins me, still I will follow." His wife was killed, and he was executed while singing, "The cross before me, the world behind me." This display of faith is reported to have led to the conversion of the chief and others in the village.[1]

The formation of these words into a hymn is attributed to the Indian missionary Sadhu Sundar Singh.[2] The melody is also Indian, and entitled "Assam" after the region where the text originated.[3] The fierce opposition is possible as various tribes in that area were formerly renowned for head-hunting.[4]

An American hymn editor, William Jensen Reynolds, composed an arrangement which was included in the 1959 Assembly Songbook. His version became a regular feature of Billy Graham's evangelistic meetings in America and elsewhere, spreading its popularity.[5] http://en.wikipedia.org

James M. Black was an active Methodist layman,

publisher of numerous gospel songs

When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder
1. When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more
And the morning breaks eternal, bright and fair
When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

And the glory of His resurrection share
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

When the roll, is called up yonder,

Podcast cover

The film Titanic featured the hymn "Nearer, My God, to Thee" a 19th century hymn most famous as the alleged last song the band on RMS Titanic played before the ship sank.
Written by Sarah Adams, Music: Lowell Mason, 1856 ,based loosely on Genesis  28:11–19,the story ofJacob’s Dream.

Genesis 28:11–12 can be translated as follows: "So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it..."

Nearer, My God ,To Thee
1. Nearer, my God, to Thee,
  Nearer to Thee;
E'en though it be a cross
  That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
  Nearer to Thee.
        2.Though, like a wanderer,
  The sun gone down,
Darkness comes over me,
  My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
  Nearer to Thee.
3. There let me see the sight,
  An open heaven;
All that Thou sendest me,
  In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
  Nearer to Thee.
4. Then, with my waking thoughts
  Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
  Bethel I'll raise,
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
  Nearer to Thee.

Words:, Sar­ah F. Adams, 6.
         Music: Beth­a­ny (Ma­son), Low­ell Ma­son, 1856: “One night, some­time af­ter ly­ing awake in the dark, eyes wide open, through the stillness in the house the mel­o­dy came to me, and the next morning I wrote down the notes.”

On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand
© 2012 Shiloh Worship Music 

William B. Bradbury 1863( Music) 
Edward Mote, c.1834 Lyrics Copyright: Public Domain

1. My hope is built on nothing less 
than Jesus' blood and righteousness. 
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, 
but wholly lean on Jesus' name. 

Refrain:
On Christ the solid rock I stand, 
all other ground is sinking sand; 
all other ground is sinking sand. 

2. When Darkness veils his lovely face, 
I rest on his unchanging grace. 
In every high and stormy gale, 
my anchor holds within the veil. 
(Refrain) 

3. His oath, his covenant, his blood 
supports me in the whelming flood. 
When all around my soul gives way, 
he then is all my hope and stay. 
(Refrain) 

4. When he shall come with trumpet sound, 
O may I then in him be found! 
Dressed in his righteousness alone, 
faultless to stand before the throne! 
(Refrain)

“The Hallelujah Side”
Verse One:

Once a sinner far from Jesus....I was perishing with cold....
But the blessed Savior heard me when I cried.....
Then He threw His arms around me and He led me to His fold....
And, I'm living on the hallelujah side....

The Chorus:

O glory be to Jesus...let the hallelujahs roll....
Help me ring the Savior's praises....far and wide.....
For I've opened up toward Heaven all the windows of my soul.....
And I'm living on the hallelujah side.....

Verse Two:

Though the world may sweep around me...with her dazzle and her dreams....
Yet I envy not her vanities and pride......
For my soul looks up to Heaven where the golden sunlight gleams....
And, I'm living on the hallelujah side....

Verse Three:

Not for all earth's golden millions would I leave this precious place....
Though the tempter to persuade me oft has tried....
For I'm safe in God's pavilion, happy in His love and grace....
And, I'm living on the hallelujah side....

Verse Four:

Here the sun is always shining...here the sky is always bright....
Tis no place for gloomy Christians to abide....
For my soul is filled with music and my heart with great delight....
And, I'm living on the hallelujah side....

Verse Five:

And upon the streets of glory...when we reach the other shore.....
And have safely crossed the Jordan's rolling tide...
You will find me shouting "Glory" just outside my mansion door....
Where I'm living on the hallelujah side....

The Chorus:

O glory be to Jesus...let the hallelujahs roll....
Help me ring the Savior's praises....far and wide.....
For I've opened up toward Heaven all the windows of my soul.....
And I'm living on the hallelujah side.....

Oh, they tell me of an unclouded day.

◦ Refrain:
Oh, the land of cloudless day,
Oh, the land of an unclouded sky,
Oh, they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,
Oh, they tell me of an unclouded day.
2. Oh, they tell me of a home where my friends have gone,
Oh, they tell me of that land far away,
Where the tree of life in eternal bloom
Sheds its fragrance through the unclouded day.
3. Oh, they tell me of a King in His beauty there,
And they tell me that mine eyes shall behold
Where He sits on the throne that is whiter than snow,
In the city that is made of gold.
4. Oh, they tell me that He smiles on His children there,
And His smile drives their sorrows all away;
And they tell me that no tears ever come again
In that lovely land of unclouded day.

1. Be Thou my vision,
O Lord of my heart;
Naught 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

Be Thou My Vision (Irish: Bí Thusa 'mo Shúile) is a traditional hymn from Ireland, which is commonly attributed to Saint Dallán Forgaill.It is popular among English-speaking churches around the world.
