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.

June's Hymn of the Month is All Glory Be to Christ with lyrics by Dustin Kensrue (Melody Auld Lang Syne – Traditional Scots)

Some excerpts from Dustin Kensrue’s notes:

“On December 31st of 2011, I was on a late flight down to Orange County from Seattle. I was trying to finish something I had been toying with and toiling over for a couple of years at that point--rewriting the lyrics to ‘Auld Lang Syne.’

"So at 30,000 feet, I finally finished the hymn and played it the next morning at church. The idea is that (especially at the beginning of the new year) we would dedicate all our efforts to bringing glory to Jesus Christ, to acknowledge that anything else would be of no value, and to celebrate our redemption in him.

May all glory be to Christ.”

Hebrews 3:4

For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.

All Glory Be to Christ

Should nothing of our efforts stand,

No legacy survive;

Unless the Lord does raise the house

In vain its builders strive.

To you who boast tomorrow's gain

Tell me, What is your life?

A mist that vanishes at dawn

All glory be to Christ!

Chorus:

All glory be to Christ our King!

All glory be to Christ!

His rule and reign we'll ever sing;

All glory be to Christ!

Verse 2

His will be done, His Kingdom come,

On earth as is above

Who is Himself our daily bread

Praise Him, the Lord of love!

Let living water satisfy

The thirsty without price;

We'll take a cup of kindness, yet,

All glory be to Christ!

Chorus

Verse 3

When on the day the great I Am,

The Faithful and the True;

The Lamb who was for sinners slain

Is making all things new!

Behold our God shall live with us

And be our steadfast Light

And we shall e'er his people be

All glory be to Christ!

Chorus
