A Hymn is a Slice of Faith


At Ever Praise Music we believe that a hymn is a slice of faith,
written by ordinary people, for ordinary people,

on an extraordinary journey.

 God has gifted countless numbers of people with songs

in their hearts. They shared their lyrics and melodies with us
in the form of sacred hymns. Take a closer look at one of these sacred hymns and you will find encouragement for your daily

walk of faith. Peruse the titles of a sacred hymnal and you will find clues as to the slice of someone's faith journey found in the hymn.


Hymns are examples of the spiritual fruit produced by ordinary people, for ordinary people, on an extraordinary journey.
This spiritual fruit, or faith fruit, is written by everyday people

who walked where we walk, felt what we have felt,
and often did what we have done. These hymns can encourage us on our journey, lead us around obstacles,
teach us how to serve our neighbor, help us stand

against principalities and powers,
share with us the praise and glory of the Lord, and witness

to all of us about the goodness and mercy of Almighty God.>>>

Ephesians 4
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all,

and in you all.

My Heart's Prayer 

My new life I owe to Thee,
Jesus, Lamb of Calvary;
Sin was canceled on the tree,
Jesus, blessed Jesus.

Humbly at Thy cross I’d stay,
Jesus, keep me there, I pray;
Teach me more of thee each day,
Jesus, blessed Jesus.

Grant me wisdom, grace and pow’r,
Lord, I need Thee ev’ry hour;
Let my will be lost in Thine,
Jesus, blessed Jesus.

Keep Me Everyday

Lord, I want to live for Thee,
Ev’ry day and hour;
Let Thy spirit be with me,
In its saving pow’r!
Refrain:
Keep my heart, and keep my hand,
Keep my soul, I pray!
Keep my tongue to speak thy praise,
Keep me all the way!

In my weakness be my strength;
In my trials all,
Be Thou near me all the day,
Hear my ev’ry call! (Refrain)

Leave me not to walk alone,
Lest I faint and die;
Let Thy spirit go with me,
And attend my cry! (Refrain)

  • My Heart's Prayer #215 1:44

​​​We Are One Body

Jesus Taught Us...
...That there is evil in the world, but He didn't dwell on it. 
Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.
     "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: 
     I am come that they might have life,

and that they might have it more abundantly." 

John 10:10
     He chose the twelve disciples so that we could hear

the good news from many different perspectives.

The apostles who preached and wrote the books of the 
New Testament wrote from different perspectives as well. 
We should not declare one Gospel message

as superior to the others.

The Four Gospels teach us, in the broader sense,

that these eyewitnesses wrote the same message,

described the same story of the life of Jesus Christ,

but spoke to us from four different perspectives. 
     So many teachers of our present day, critique the good news 

preached by others from a different perspective.

The Bible says "he that hath an ear, let him hear..."

The Holy Spirit is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow..>>>(read more)

When I tread the verge of Jordan, 
bid my anxious fears subside; 
death of death and hell's destruction, 
land me safe on Canaan's side. 
Songs of praises, 
I will ever give to thee; 
Songs of praises...
I will ever give to thee.

Matthew 18
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing

that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst

of them.

1. As the song plays the first time, make remarks about going into our prayer closets to pray. Sometimes the prayer closet is literal, that is, a quiet and secluded location. At other times, when the quiet place is not available,

the prayer closet is our heart. No matter the circumstances, tests,

and challenges of life, you can always pray within your heart. God is always there and ready to strengthen and support you. Just trust and believe.
2. As the song plays the second time,  read the scripture from the book of 

Matthew 18:19-20 and Matthew 6:1-13. Let the song end.
3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1 - 3 together.
4. Prayer and Meditation.

Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah 

Guide me, O thou great Jehovah, 
pilgrim through this barren land. 
I am weak, but thou art mighty; 
hold me with thy powerful hand. 
Bread of heaven, 
feed me till I want no more; 
Bread of heaven...
feed me till I want no more. 


Open now the crystal fountain, 
whence the healing stream doth flow; 
let the fire and cloudy pillar 
lead me all my journey through. 
Strong deliverer,  
be thou still my strength and shield; 
Strong deliverer...
be thou still my strength and shield. 

1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:

but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;

but will with the temptation also make a way to escape,

that ye may be able to bear it.

God knows what you are going through. Angels ministered

to Jesus when the temptations ended. God will do the same for you.
2. As the song continues, (During Verses 2 - 3) read the scripture from I Corinthians 10:1-13. Let the song end. 
3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1-3 together.

Meditation Moments 

Yield Not to Temptation 

Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
Each vict’ry will help you some other to win;
Fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.
Refrain:
Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you through.


Shun evil companions, bad language disdain,
God’s name hold in rev’rence, nor take it in vain;
Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through. (Refrain)

To him that o’ercometh, God giveth a crown,
Through faith we will conquer, though often cast down;
He who is our Savior, our strength will renew;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through. (Refrain)
