Brethren, We Have Met to Worship
Words: George Askins | Music: William Moore

Brethren, we have met to worship and adore the Lord our God;
Will you pray with all your power while we try to preach the Word?
All is vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down;
Brethren, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

Brothers, see poor sinners ’round you, slumb’ring on the brink of woe;
Death is coming, hell is moving, can you bear to let them go?
See our fathers and our mothers, and our children sinking down;
Brothers, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

Sisters, will you join and help us? Moses’ sister aided him.
Will you help the trembling mourners who are struggling hard with sin?
Tell them all about the Savior, tell them that he will be found;
Sisters, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

Let us love our God supremely, let us love each other too;
Let us love and pray for sinners till our God makes all things new.
Then he’ll call us home to heaven, at his table we’ll sit down;
Christ will gird himself and serve us with sweet manna all around,
With sweet manna all around.

Brethren, we have met to worship and adore the Lord our God.

10,000 Reasons
Words & Music: Matt Redman
(c) 2011 Thankyou Music

Bless the Lord, O my soul;
O my soul, Worship his holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul;
I worship your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning;
It’s time to sing your song again.
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes. Chorus

You’re rich in love, and you’re slow to anger,
Your name is great, and your heart is kind.
For all your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find. Chorus

And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near, and my time has come,
Still my soul will sing your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore! Chorus 2x

Pensive, Doubting, Fearful Heart
Words: John Newton | Music: Wendell Kimbrough

Pensive, doubting, fearful heart, hear what Christ the Savior says;
Every word should joy impart, change thy mourning into praise.
Yes, he speaks and speaks to thee, may he help thee to believe,
Then thou presently wilt see thou hast little cause to grieve.

“Fear thou not, nor be ashamed; all thy sorrows soon shall end.
I, who heav’n and earth have framed, am thy Husband and thy Friend.
I the High and Holy One, Israel’s God by all adored,
As thy Savior will be known, thy Redeemer and thy Lord.”

“For a moment I withdrew, and thy heart was filled with pain,
But my mercies I’ll renew; thou shalt soon rejoice again.
Though I seem to hide my face, very soon my wrath shall cease;
‘Tis but for a moment’s space, ending in eternal peace.”

“Though afflicted, tempest-tossed, comfortless a while thou art,
Do not think thou canst be lost, thou art graven on my heart.
All thy wastes I will repair, thou shalt be rebuilt anew,
And in thee it shall appear, what the God of love can do.”

Narrow Little Road
Words & Music: Mo Leverett

I believe in the love of God.
It is an orphan’s wildest dream.
It is a narrow little road.
It is an ever-widening desert stream.

Oh I, and I, I will leave this road
For the narrow.
Oh I, and I, I will leave this road
For the narrow.

It is portrayed in the bread and wine,
Let is fortify my bones.
It is more than just a sign:
It is the fountain from that desert stone. Refrain

It is the path where the humble go.
It is the narrow, not the broad.
It is the pathway down the hill
To the graveyard of the Living God. Refrain

The love of God is a hymn of hope,
Let the needy join the throng,
Let the widow hear, and hope,
Let the crippled rise to sing this song. Refrain 2x

Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven
Words: Henry Lyte, based on Psalm 103 | Music: Christopher Miner
(c) 1997 Christopher Miner Music

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven,
To his feet thy tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Who like me his praise should sing?
Praise him, praise him, praise him, praise him,
Praise the everlasting King.

Praise him for his grace and favor
To our fathers in distress.
Praise him still, the same forever,
Slow to chide and swift to bless.
Praise him, praise him, praise him, praise him,
Glorious in his faithfulness.

Frail as summer’s flow’r we flourish,
Blows the wind and it is gone;
But while mortals rise and perish
God endures unchanging on.
Praise him, praise him, praise him, praise him,
Praise the high Eternal One.

Father-like he tends and spares us,
Well our feeble frame he knows.
In his hands he gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.
Praise him, praise him, praise him, praise him,
Widely as his mercy goes.

Angels, help us to adore him;
Ye behold him face to face.
Sun and moon, bow down before him,
Dwellers all in time and space.
Praise him, praise him, praise him, praise him,
Praise with us the God of grace.
