Come Ye Sinners
Words: Joseph Hart | Music: Matthew Smith
(c) 2000 Detuned Radio Music

Come ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity joined with power.
He is able, he is able,
He is willing; doubt no more.

Come ye needy, come and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.
Without money, without money,
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.

Come ye weary, heavey laden,
Bruised and broken by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.
Not the righteous, not the righteous,
Sinners Jesus came to call.

Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness he requires
Is to feel your need of him.
This he gives you, this he gives you,
‘Tis the Spirit’s rising beam.

Lo! the Incarnate God ascended,
Pleads the merit of his blood.
Venture on him, venture wholly;
Let no other trust intrude.
None but Jesus, none but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good.

He’s Opened the Gates
Words & Music: Wen Reagan (based on Ps 118)
(c) 2013 Wen Reagan

Praise our God for he is good; his love endures forever!
Let the saints of Jesus sing; his love endures forever!
Let the shepherds now confess; his love endures forever!
All who fear the Lord declare; his love endures forever!

With death on every side, they pressed him hard yet he cut them down;
The Lord, in all of his strength, with his right hand
He came to save us from the grave,
Came to save from the grave,
He came to save us from the grave. Refrain

The stone thrown away now has become the cornerstone;
The Lord, in all of his strength, with his right hand
Became our song and our shield,
Became our song and our shield,
Became our song and our shield. Refrain

Though dead, he would not die; though in hell, he rose from the grave;
The Lord, in all of his strength, with his right hand
He’s opened the gates and brought us in,
He’s opened the gates and brought us in,
He’s opened the gates and brought us in. Refrain

Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder
Words: John Newton | Music: Laura Taylor
(c) 2001 Laura Taylor Music

Let us love and sing and wonder,
Let us praise the Savior’s name;
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder,
He has quenched Mount Sinai’s flame.
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has brought us nigh to God.

Let us love the Lord who bought us,
Pitied us when enemies,
Called us by his grace and taught us,
Gave us ears, and gave us eyes.
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He presents our souls to God.

Let us sing, though fierce temptation
Threatens hard to bear us down;
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
Holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown.
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
Soon will bring us home to God.

Let us wonder grace and justice,
Join and point to mercy’s store,
When through grace in Christ our trust is,
Justice smiles and asks no more.
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
Has secured our way to God.

Let us praise and join the chorus
Of the saints enthroned on high;
Here they trusted him before us,
Now their praises fill the sky.
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou art worthy, Lamb of God.

All Creatures of our God and King
Words: Francis of Assisi, 1215 | Music: Conrad Kocher, 1838

All creatures of our God and King,
lift up your voice with us and sing
alleluia, alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
thou silver moon with softer gleam,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
ye clouds that sail in heav’n along,
alleluia, alleluia!
Thou rising morn in praise rejoice,
ye lights of evening, find a voice,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

And all ye men of tender heart,
forgiving others, take your part,
O sing ye, alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
praise God and on him cast your care,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship him in humbleness,
O praise him, alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
and praise the Spirit, three in one.
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Who Is Like the Lord Our God
Words: Wendell Kimbrough | Music: Wendell Kimbrough & Bruce Benedict
(c) 2013 Wendell Kimbrough

Our Father, he lifts from the ashes,
He raises the poor and the lost;
He seats them to dine at his table,
To feast without money or cost.
The lonely he settles in families,
The barren a mother he makes;
O happy the heart of the stranger
Who’s welcomed by this King of Grace.

Who is like the Lord our God?
Who with glory fills the sky,
But humbles himself with the broken to dwell?
Who is like our God?

Though equal to God in his glory,
Christ Jesus became like a slave;
He humbled himself in obedience
To Death, and the Cross, and the Grave.
Victorious, he rose to the highest;
In glory, the Savior was raised.
His name above all names exalted;
The heavens and earth sing his praise
Refrain

O Saints, fix your eyes on the Savior
And count all your righteousness loss.
Be found in his love and his favor,
And share in his death on the cross;
That all of his power in victory,
Imparted to you may abound,
And sharing the suff’rings of Jesus,
You share in his glory and crown
Refrain 2x
