     SWEET HARMONIES by C.L. Parker. - (died. 1967)
'Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God ... Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving;
sing praise upon the harp unto our God.' Ps 147,1 & 7.
      These Hymn Tunes were written throughout my husband's 'Born Again' years from 1917 onwards. I
especially remember us singing the early ones in the streets of Oxford where, with a few students from
our small Bible School including Elisha Thompson, we were pioneering a work in 1923-24.
     He was very musical and found great release in beautiful melody. I have often seen him in tears over
some lovely theme from such works as Elgar's Nimrod Variation and Tchaikovsky's Fantasie Overture
"Romeo & Juliet", or rejoicing exuberantly over Bach's Brandenburg Concertos..
      Music in praise of the Saviour was particularly delightful to him. I can see him now rising from
prayer and meditation, or simply returning from a walk or a preaching engagement, and, sitting down at
the piano, pouring out his heart to God in praise as he composed these tunes, restfully enjoying the sense
of His presence.
      John, my son, encouraged me to gather his somewhat worn manuscripts together and rewrite the
tunes for publication, feeling that they might bring blessing to others as they have to us.

Hymn 1.

                          ALL THE WAY MY SAVIOUR LEADS ME
                   Fanny J. Crosby                    C. L. Parker




          1. All the way my Saviour leads me: 3.   All the way my Saviour leads me;
             What have I to ask beside?            Oh, the fulness of His love!
             Can I doubt His tender mercy,         Perfect rest to me is promised
             Who through life has been my          In my Father's house above.
             guide?                                When my spirit, clothed, immortal,
             Heavenly peace, divinest comfort,     Wings its flight to realms of day,
             Here by faith in Him to dwell!        This my song through endless ages,
             For I know whate'er befall me,        Jesus led me all the way.
             Jesus doeth all things well.

          2. All the way my Saviour leads me,
             Cheers each winding path I tread,     RH 455
             Gives me grace for every trial,       RS 445
             Feeds me with the Living Bread.
             Though my weary steps may falter,
             And my soul athirst may be,
             Gushing from the Rock before me,
             Lo! a spring of joy I see.

Hymn 2.
                         A DEBTOR TO MERCY ALONE.
                   A. M. Toplady                                    C. L. Parker




        1. A debtor to mercy alone,           3.   My name from the palms of His hands
           Of covenant mercy I sing;               Eternity will nor erase;
           Nor fear, with God's righteousness      Impressed on His heart it remains,
           on,                                     In marks of indelible grace.
           My person and off'ring to bring.        Yes, I to the end shall endure,
           The terrors of law and of God           As sure as the earnest is given;
           With me can have nothing to do;         More happy, but not more secure,
           My Saviour's obedience and blood        The glorified spirits in heaven.
           Hide all my transgressions from
           view.

        2. The work which His goodness began       RH 390
           The arm of His strength will
           complete;
           His promise is Yea and Amen,
           And never was forfeited yet.
           Things future, nor things that are
           now,
           Nor all things below or above,
           Can make him His purpose forgo,
           Or sever my soul from his love.

Hymn 3.
                                        O GOLDEN DAY.
                    Julia H. Johnston                                    C. L. Parker




       1. O Golden day, when light shall break5.       I dimly see my journey's end,
          And dawn's bright glories shall              But well I know who guideth me,
          unfold,                                      I follow Him, that wondrous Friend,
          When He who knows the path I take            Whose matchless love is full and free.
          Shall ope for me the gates of gold.
                                                  6.   And when with him I enter in,
       2. Earth's little while will soon be past,      And all the way look back to trace,
          My pilgrim song will soon be o'er,           The conqueror's palm I then shall win
          The grace that saves shall time outlast,     Thro' Christ and His redeeming grace.
          And be my theme on yonder shore.

       3.   Life's upward way, a narrow path,
            Leads on to that fair dwelling place,      CHORUS
            Where safe from sin, and storm, and        Then I shall know as I am known
            wrath,                                     And stand complete before the throne;
            They live who trust redeeming grace.       Then I shall see my Saviour's face,
                                                       And all my song be Saving Grace.
       4. Sing, sing my heart, along the way,
          The grace that saves will keep and                                            RS 729
          guide,
          Till breaks the glorious crowning day,
          And I shall cross to yonder side.

           1.   Day is dying in the west,   3.      When forever from our sight
                Heav'n is touching earth with       Pass the stars, the day, the night,

                Of the stars that veil Thy Face,
                   Our hearts ascend.                                              RH 794

                   Henrietta E. Blair                                 C. L. Parker




             1.   Far away my steps have       4.   Though Thy love I long have
                  wandered,                         slighted,
                  On the rugged mountain's brow;    O'er my wasted years I weep;

                  brought me;
                  Let my weary soul come in.

          1.   Just as I am without one plea,   3. Just as I am. Thou wilt receive,
               But that Thy blood was shed for me, WiIt welcome, pardon, cleanse,
               And that Thou bidst me come to      relieve;

                      ACCORDING TO THY GRACIOUS WORD
                   J. Montgomery                                     C. L. Parker




                                          4.
          1. According to Thy gracious word, When to the Cross I turn mine eyes,
             In meek humility,               And rest on Calvary,
             This will I do, my dying Lord: 0 Lamb of God my sacrifice,
             I will remember Thee.           I must remember Thee:—

                                         5.
          2. Thy body, broken for my sake,    Remember Thee, and all Thy pains,
             My bread from heaven shall be;   And all Thy love to me;
             Thy testamental cup I take,      Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,
             And thus remember Thee.          Will I remember Thee.

          3. Gethsemane can I forget?   6. And when these failing lips grow dumb,
             Or there Thy conflict see,    And mind and memory flee,
             Thine agony and bloody sweat, When thou shalt in Thy Kingdom come
             And not remember Thee?        Then, Lord, remember me.

                   I. Watts                          C. L. Parker




             1.   Lord, I have made Thy Word my3.        'Tis a broad land of wealth
                  choice,                                unknown,

                  There shall my noblest powers          Seeds of immortal bliss are

                  I'll read the histories of Thy love,   The best relief that mourners

                There's a kindness in His justice, We should take Him at His word;
                Which is more than liberty.        And our lives would be all

                            OUT OF CHRIST WITHOUT A SAVIOUR
                    F.M. Davis

                      (Last 2 verses by R.F.B.)




           1. Out of Christ, without a Saviour,4.   Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
              Oh! can it, can it be?                Dark will the voyage be;
              Like a ship without a rudder,         Clouds will gather, storms surround
              On a wild and stormy sea!             you,
                                                    Oh, to Christ for refuge flee!
           2. Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
              Lonely and dark the way;         5.   Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
              With no light, no hope in Jesus,      Give to Him now your heart,
              Making bright the cheerless day.      Ere the door of mercy closes,
                                                    And you hear His word, "Depart".
           3. Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
              No help nor refuge nigh,              CHORUS
              How can you, my friend and            Oh, to be without a Saviour,
              brother,                              With no hope nor refuge nigh!
              Dare to live, or dare to die?         Can it be, O blessed Saviour,
                                                    One without Thee dares to die?

Hymn 20.
                               THERE'S A GREAT DAY COMING
                     W. L. Thompson                      C. L. Parker




                1.    There's a great day coming, a great day coming,
                      There's a great day coming by and by,
                      When the saints and the sinners shall be parted right and
                      left,
                      Are you ready for that day to come?

                2.    There's a bright day coming, a bright day coming,
                      There's a bright day coming by and by,
                      But its brightness shall only come to them that love the
                      Lord,
                      Are you ready for that day to come?

                3.    There's a sad day coming, a sad day coming,
                      There's a sad day coming by and by,
                      When the sinner shall hear his doom, "Depart, I know you
                      not."
                      Are you ready for that day to come?

                      CHORUS
                      Are you ready, are you ready,
                      Are you ready for the judgment day?
                      Are you ready, are you ready,
                      Are you ready for the judgment day?          RS 241

Hymn 21.
                             IF OUR LORD SHOULD COME TONIGHT
                     Harriet E. Jones                    C. L. Parker




           1.   If our Lord should come to-night 3.   Christ as King and Judge will
                With the bright angelic host,         come,
                Would He find us in His vineyard,     'Tis recorded in His book;
                Ev'ry servant at his post?            He will bid us stand before Him
                Thro' the precious, cleansing blood   Not a soul will He o'erlook!
                Are our garments clean and white?     Are we ready, ev'ry one?
                Are we dwelling in the light,         Are we in the raiment white?
                Should our Lord appear to-night?      If the Judge of all mankind
                                                      Should appear this very night?
           2.   If our Lord should come to-night,
                Come as King and Judge of all,        CHORUS
                Are there any here assembled          Are we watching, are we waiting
                Who would tremble at His call?        In the raiment pure and white?
                Is there one, oh, is there one        Should we joy at His appearing
                Far from Jesus and the light,         If our Lord should come to-night?
                Unrepentant, lost, undone,
                If the Judge should come to-night?    RS 514

  Hymn 22.
                                       THERE'S A HILL LONE AND GREY
                            Dr. R. Carradine                      C. L. Parker




1. There's a hill lone and grey, in a land far away,            5. Then the darkness came down and the rocks rent around,
   In a country beyond the blue sea,                               And a cry pierced the grief laden air;
   Where beneath that fair sky went a man forth to die             'Twas the voice of our King who received death's dark sting
   For the World and for you and for me.                           All to save us from endless despair.

2. Behold! faint on the road, 'neath a world's heavy load,      6. Let the sun hide its face, let the earth reel apace,
   Comes a thorn-crownèd man on the way,                           Over men who their Saviour have slain;
   With a cross He is bowed, but still on through the crowd        But behold from the sod, comes the blest Lamb of God,
   He's ascending that hill lone and grey.                         Who was slain and is risen again.

3. Hark! I hear the dull blow of the hammer swung low;            CHORUS
   They are nailing my Lord to the tree,                          Oh, it bows down the heart,
   And the cross they upraise while the multitude gaze            And the tear-drops will start,
   On the blest Lamb of dark Calvary.                             When in memory that grey hill I see,
                                                                  For 'twas there on its side,
4. How they mock Him in death, to His last labouring breath,      Jesus suffered and died,
   While His friends sadly weep o'er the way!                     To redeem a poor sinner like me.
   But though lonely and faint, still no word of complaint
   Fell from Him on the hill lone and grey.                       RS 82
