Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Words: Joachim Neander (Psalm 103) | Music: Stralsund Gesangbuch
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise him, for he is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to his temple draw near,
Join me in glad adoration.
Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under his wings, yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen how all thy longings have been
Granted in what he ordaineth?
Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee!
Surely his goodness and mercy here daily attend thee;
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
If with his love he befriend thee!
Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him.
Let the amen sound from his people again;
Gladly for aye we adore him.
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.
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, 3x
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.
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, 3x
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, 3x
Thou art worthy, Lamb of God.
Lead Me To The Cross
Words & Music: Brooke Ligertwood
Savior I come, quiet my soul
Remember redemption’s hill
Where your blood was spilled for my ransom
Everything I once held dear I count it all as loss
Lead me to the cross
Where your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to you
Oh lead me, lead me to the cross
You were as I tempted and tried
Human, the Word became flesh
Bore my sin and death now You’re risen
Everything I once held dear I count it all as lost Chorus
Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken
Words: Henry Lyte | Music: Bill Moore | (c) 2001 Bill Moore Music
Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow thee.
Destitute, despised, forsaken,
Thou from hence my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,
All I’ve sought or hoped or known.
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heav’n are still my own.
Let the world despise and leave me,
They have left my Savior, too.
Human hearts and looks deceive me;
Thou art not, like them, untrue.
O while thou dost smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might,
Foes may hate and friends disown me,
Show thy face and all is bright.
Go then earthly fame and treasure,
Come disaster, scorn, and pain.
In thy service pain is pleasure,
With thy favor loss is gain.
I have called thee Abba Father,
I have stayed my heart on thee.
Storms may howl and clouds may gather;
All must work for good to me.
Soul, then know thy full salvation,
Rise o’er sin and fear and care
Joy to find in every station,
Something still to do or bear.
Think what Spirit dwells within thee,
Think what Father’s smiles are thine,
Think that Jesus died to win thee!
Child of heav’n, canst thou repine?
Haste thee on from grace to glory,
Armed by faith and winged by prayer.
Heav’n’s eternal days before thee,
God’s own hand shall guide us there.
Soon shall close thy earthly mission,
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days,
Hope shall change to glad fruition,
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.
Psalm 62 (My Soul Finds Rest in God Alone)
Words & Music: Stuart Townend & Aaron Keys | (c) 2008 Thankyou Music
All Creatures of our God and King
Words: St. Francis of Assisi, Jonathan Baird, & Ryan Baird | Music: Conrad Kocher
My soul finds rest in God alone, my Rock and my salvation,
A fortress strong against my foes, and I will not be shaken.
Though lips my bless and hearts may curse, and lies like arrows pierce me,
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness, I’ll look to him who hears me.
O praise him, hallelujah, my delight and my reward!
Everlasting, never-failing, my Redeemer, my God!
Find rest, my soul, in God alone, amid the world’s temptations;
When evil seeks to take a hold, I’ll cling to my salvation.
Though riches come and riches go, don’t set your heart upon them;
The fields of hope in which I sow are harvested in heaven. Chorus
I’ll set my gaze on God alone and trust in him completely,
With every day pour out my soul, and he will prove his mercy.
Though life is but a fleeting breath, a sigh too brief to measure,
My King has crushed the curse of death, and I am his forever! Chorus
Let all things their Creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness
O praise Him! Allelujah!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son
And praise the Spirit, Three-in-One
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Allelujah! Allelujah! Allelujah! Chorus 2x
He shall return in pow’r to reign
Heaven and earth will join to say
O praise Him! Allelujah!
Then who shall fall on bended knee?
All creatures of our God and King
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Allelujah! Allelujah! Allelujah!
