Hymn of the Month

We are commanded to, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs." (Colossians 3:16). Accordingly, we incorporate hymns into our regular Sunday morning worship at Pacific Hope Church. We firmly believe in equipping God's people with the knowledge of His Word through sound teaching in our classes, Bible studies, and even in our Sunday morning worship. Our worship will always be with the purpose of exalting the Lord to His proper place; it is never man-centered or seeking to create an emotional experience.


August's Hymn of the Month is O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer by Nathan Stiff.  

(Listen here.)


O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer

O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer

Greatest treasure of my longing soul

My God, like You there is no other

True delight is found in You alone.

Your grace, a well too deep to fathom;

Your love exceeds the heavens’ reach.

Your truth, a fount of perfect wisdom,

My highest good and my unending need.

 

O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer,

Strong defender of my weary heart;

My sword to fight the cruel deceiver,

And my shield against his hateful darts!

My song when enemies surround me,

My hope when tides of sorrow rise;

My joy when trials are abounding;

Your faithfulness, my refuge in the night.

 

O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer,

Gracious Savior of my ruined life!

My guilt and cross laid on Your shoulders,

In my place You suffered bled and died.

You rose, the grave and death are conquered!

You broke my bonds of sin and shame!

O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer,

May all my days bring glory to Your Name!
