10,000 Reasons

Words & Music: Matt Redman
© 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

Holy, Holy, Holy

Words: Reginald Heber | Music: John Dykes

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our songs shall rise to thee.
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity.

Holy, Holy, Holy! All the saints adore thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea.
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, Holy, Holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see.
Only thou art holy, there is none beside thee,
Perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth, and sky, and sea.
Holy! Holy! Holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity.
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity.

The Wonderful Cross

Words: Isaac Watts | Music: Lowell Mason | Chorus: Chris Tomlin

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

See from his head, his hands, his feet:
Sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

O the wonderful Cross, O the wonderful Cross
Bids me come and die, and find that I may truly live.
O the wonderful Cross, O the wonderful Cross,
All who gather here by grace draw near and bless your name.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an off’ring far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.    Chorus

Before the Throne of God Above

Words: Charitie Less Bancroft | Music: Vikki Cook
© 1997 Sovereign Grace Music

Before the throne of God above,
I have a strong and perfect plea:
A great High Priest whose name is love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on his hands,
My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heav’n he stands,
No tongue can bid me thence depart,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on him and pardon me,
To look on him and pardon me.

Behold him there, the risen Lamb!
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I Am,
The King of glory and of grace.
The King of glory and of grace.
The King of glory and of grace.
The King of glory and of grace.
The King of glory and of grace.
One with himself, I cannot die;
My soul is purchased by his blood;
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ my Savior and my God,
With Christ my Savior and my God.

Rock of Ages (When the Day Seems Long)

Words: Sandra McCracken | Music: Kevin Twit

Rock of Ages, when the day seems long,
From the this labor and this heartache, I have come.
The skies will wear out, but you remain the same;
Rock of Ages, I praise your name.

Rock of Ages, you have brought me near,
You have poured out your life-blood, your love, your tears,
To make this stone heart come alive again;
Rock of Ages, forgive my sin.

Rock of Ages, Rock of Ages,
Bind your children until the kingdom comes,
Rock of Ages, your will be done.

Rock of Ages, when in want or rest
My desperate need for such a Savior I confess,
Pull these idols out from my heart’s embrace;
Rock of Ages, I need your grace.

Rock of Ages, broken, scorned for me,
Who am I that you would die to make me free?
To give me glory you took the death and pain;
Rock of Ages, my offering.   Refrain

Rock of Ages, “It is done!” you cried.
The curtain’s torn and I see justice satisfied.
Now write your mercy on my heart and hands;
Rock of Ages, in faith I stand.

Rock of Ages, my great hope secure,
Your promise holds just like an anchor to my soul.
Bind your children with cords of love and grace;
Rock of Ages, we give you praise.  Refrain 2x

Let Your Kingdom Come

Words & Music: Bob Kauflin

Your glorious cause, O God, engages our hearts;
May Jesus Christ be known wherever we are.
We ask not for ourselves, but for your renown;
The cross has saved us so we pray,
“Your kingdom come!”

Let your kingdom come, let your will be done,
So that everyone mighty know your Name;
Let your song be heard everywhere on earth,
Till your sovereign work on earth is done;
Let your kingdom come!

Give us your strength, O God, and courage to speak;
Perform your wondrous deeds through those who are weak.
Lord, use us as you want, whatever the test;
By grace we’ll preach your Gospel
Till our dying breath.  Chorus 2x
