Come Christians, Join to Sing
Words: Christian H. Bateman | Music: Spanish melody

Rejoice and sing to God our Lord our King!
Lift up and praise his name! Alleluia, alleluia!

Come, Christians, join to sing–alleluia, amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King–alleluia, amen!
Let all with heart and voice before his throne rejoice;
Praise is his gracious choice–alleluia, amen!

Come lift your hearts on high–alleluia, amen!
Let praises fill the sky–alleluia, amen!
He is our Guide and Friend, to us he’ll condescend;
His love shall never end–alleluia, amen! Refrain

Praise yet our Christ again–alleluia, amen!
Life shall not end the strain–alleluia, amen!
On heaven’s blissful shore, his goodness we’ll adore,
Singing forevermore–alleluia, amen! Refrain 2x

Psalm 103
Words: James Montgomery | Music: Kevin Twit
(c) 2015 Kevin Twit Music

O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name;
O my soul, till life’s last hours, bless the Lord, his praise proclaim.
Thine infirmities he healed, he thy peace and pardon sealed;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.

He with loving-kindness crowned thee, satisfied thy mouth with good,
From the snares of death unbound thee, eagle-like thy youth renewed.
Rich in tender mercy he, slow to wrath, to favor free;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.

Bless the Lord (Bless the Lord), O my soul!
Bless the Lord (Bless the Lord), O my soul!
Bless the Lord (Bless the Lord), O my soul!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul!

He will not retain displeasure, though awhile he hide his face,
Nor his God-like bounty measure by our merit, but his grace.
As the heav’n the earth transcends, over us his care extends;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.

Far as east and west are parted, he our sins hath severed thus;
As a father, loving-hearted, spares his son, he spareth us.
For he knows our feeble frame; he remembers whence we came;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.
Refrain

From eternity enduring, to eternity the Lord
Still his people’s bliss ensuring, keeps his covenanted word.
Yea, with truth and righteousness, children’s children he will bless;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.

As in heaven, his throne and dwelling, King on earth he holds his sway;
Angels, ye in strength excelling, bless the Lord, his voice obey;
All his works in all the earth, bless the Lord, proclaim his worth;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.
Refrain

What Wondrous Love Is This
Words & Music: American Folk Hymn

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, beneath God’s righteous frown,
Christ laid aside his crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside his crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb I will sing, I will sing,
To God and to the Lamb I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb, who is the great I Am,
While millions join the theme I will sing, I will sing,
While millions join the theme I will sing.

And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on,
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on.
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be,
And through eternity I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on,
And through eternity I’ll sing on.

Abide with Me
Words: Henry Lyte | Music: Justin Smith
(c) 2007 Justin Smith Music

Abide with me, fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, abide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile,
And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, though I oft left thee;
On to the close, Lord, abide with me.

I need thy presence every passing hour;
What but thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who, like thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, abide with me.

I fear no foe with thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness.
Where is thy sting, death? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, abide with me.

Hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heav’n’s morning breaks and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, Lord, abide with me.
In life, in death, Lord, abide with me.

We Will Feast in the House of Zion
Words & Music: Sandra McCracken & Josh Moore
(c) 2015 Drink Your Tea

We will feast in the house of Zion,
We will sing with our hearts restored.
“He has done great things,” we will say together,
We will feast and weep no more.

We will not be burned by the fire,
He is the LORD our God.
We are not consumed by the flood,
Upheld, protected, gathered up. Refrain

In the dark of night, before the dawn,
My soul, be not afraid.
For the promised morning, oh how long?
O God of Jacob, be my strength. Refrain

Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed;
You are the Faithful One.
And from the garden to the grave,
Bind us together, bring shalom. Refrain
