O Christ of all the ages,

Unchanging to the end,

Let glory, laud, and honor

From every tongue ascend.

+++++

Let every heart adore Thee,

And every knee bend low;

With tears of deep contrition,

Let every eye o’er flow.

+++++

For Thou has borne our sorrows,

Our sicknesses hast healed,

Our sins were laid upon Thee,

Our pardon Thou hast sealed.

+++++

Henceforth, of life eternal

We are joint-heirs with Thee,

And with Thee through the ages,

May God the Father see.

+++++

O grant that every nation

In homage soon shall sing

“All glory, praise, and honor

To our Redeemer, King.”

O God, my comforter and guide,

Our refuge when oppressed,

The Rock of Ages, ‘neath whose shade,

May way-worn trav’lers rest.

+++++

From infancy to hoary age

Thy love our path attends,

Thy everlasting arms support

As ’till life’s journey ends.

+++++

To Thee we lift our burdened hearts,

To Thee our songs we raise.

For in Thy presence, gracious Lord,

Petition turns to praise.

Jesus, Lord of little children,

Lord today, as yesterday,

From Thy radiant throne in glory

Bend to hear us while we pray.

Chorus:

Jesus, Lord of little children,

Through Thy love so full and sweet,

May the children of all nations

Come to worship at Thy feet.

+++++

By the shores of blue Genesaret,

On their heads Thy hands were laid;

On Thy tender arms wee babies,

Nestled gladly, unafraid.

Chorus

+++++

Jesus, Master, we Thy children,

Lift our praises now to Thee,

And we long to spread the knowledge

Of Thy love beyond the sea.

Chorus

+++++

Help us tell the story, Master,

May our lips and lives proclaim

Thy great love.  And may all children

Learn to know and love Thy name.

The 1889 structure of Summerville Presbyterian Church, having become unsafe in 1923, went the way of all buildings past their prime.  The new facility was ready in April 1924.

John Dodson Taylor, Sr. (1860-1936) was the bald gentleman in the center of this close-up.  I guess that the woman to his left was his wife, “Hattie” Stoddard Taylor.
