A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief

Abide with Me!

Abide with Me; 'Tis Eventide

As I Search the Holy Scriptures

As the Dew From Heaven Distilling

Away in a Manger

Beautiful Savior

Come Unto Jesus

Did You Think to Pray

Father, I Will Reverent Be

God Is Love

God's Daily Care

Guide Me to Thee

How Gentle God's Commands

How Great the Wisdom and the Love

How Great Thou Art

I Am a Child of God

I Know That My Redeemer Lives

I Need Thee Every Hour

I Stand All Amazed

I Thank Thee Dear Father

In Remembrance of Thy Suffering

In the Bleak Mid-winter

Jesus of Nazareth, Savior and King

Jesus Once of Humble Birth

Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me

Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee

Joseph Smith's First Prayer

Lead Kindly Light

Lord, I Would Follow Thee

More Holiness Give Me

My Heavenly Father Loves Me

Nearer, My God, to Thee

O May My Soul Commune with Thee

O My Father

O Thou Before the World Began

Our Savior's Love

Prayer is the Soul's Sincere Desire

Reverently, Quietly

Sweet Hour of Prayer

Sweet Is the Peace the Gospel Brings

Tell Me, Dear Lord

There Is a Green Hill Far Away

'Tis Sweet to Sing the Matchless Love

Where Can I Turn for Peace
