Holy Is the Lord

Words & Music: Chris Tomlin | (c) 2003 sixsteps Music

We stand and lift up our hands

For the joy of the Lord is our strength.

We bow down and worship him now–

How great, how awesome is he!

And together we sing, everyone sing:

 

Holy is the Lord God Almighty,

The earth is filled with his glory!

Holy is the Lord God Almighty,

The earth is filled with his glory,

The earth is filled with his glory!

 

We stand and lift up our hands

For the joy of the Lord is our strength.

We bow down and worship him now–

How great, how awesome is he!

And together we sing, everyone sing:             Chorus

 

And it’s rising up all around,

The anthem of the Lord’s renown. 2x

 

And together we sing, everyone sing:             Chorus

 

Fairest Lord Jesus

Words & Music: German hymn

Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature,

Son of God and Son of Man!

Thee will I cherish, thee will I honor,

Thou my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.

 

Fair are the meadows, fair are the woodlands,

Robed in the blooming garb of spring;

Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,

Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

 

Fair is the sunshine, fair is the moonlight,

And all the twinkling starry host;

Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer

Than all the angels heav’n can boast.

 

Beautiful Savior! Lord of all nations!

Son of God and Son of Man!

Glory and honor, praise, adoration,

Now and forevermore be thine.

 

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

Words & Music: Stuart Townend

How vast beyond all measure,

That he should give his only Son

To make a wretch his treasure.

How great the pain of searing loss,

The Father turns his face away,

As wounds which mar the Chosen One

Bring many sons to glory.

 

Behold the man upon a cross,

My sins upon his shoulders;

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice

Call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held him there

Until it was accomplished;

His dying breath has brought me life,

I know that it is finished.

 

I will not boast in anything,

No gifts, no power, no wisdom,

But I will boast in Jesus Christ,

His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from his reward?

I cannot give an answer,

But this I know with all my heart:

His wounds have paid my ransom.

 

How deep the Father’s love for us,

How vast beyond all measure,

That he should give his only Son

To make a wretch his treasure.

 

From the Depths of Woe (Psalm 130)

Words: Martin Luther | Music: Christopher Miner | (c) 1997 Christopher Miner Music

From the depths of woe I raise to thee the voice of lamentation;

Lord, turn a gracious ear to me and hear my supplication.

If thou iniquities dost mark, our secret sins and misdeeds dark,

O who shall stand before thee? Who shall stand before thee?

O who shall stand before thee? Who shall stand before thee?

 

To wash away the crimson stain, grace, grace alone availeth;

Our works, alas, are all in vain; in much the best life faileth.

No man can glory in thy sight, all must alike confess thy might,

And live alone by mercy, Live alone by mercy,

And live alone by mercy, Live alone by mercy.

 

Therefore my trust is in the Lord, and not in mine own merit;

On him my soul shall rest, His Word upholds my fainting spirit.

His promised mercy is my fort, my comfort, and my sweet support;

I wait for it with patience, Wait for it with patience,

I wait for it with patience, Wait for it with patience.

 

What though I wait the live-long night, and till the dawn appeareth,

My heart still trusteth in his might, it doubeth not, nor feareth;

Do thus, O ye of Israel’s seed, ye of the Spirit born indeed,

And wait till God appeareth, Wait till God appeareth,

And wait till God appeareth, Wait till God appeareth.

 

Though great our sins and sore our woes, his grace much more aboundeth;

His helping love no limit knows, our utmost need it soundeth.

Our Shepherd good and true is he, who will at last his Israel free

From all their sin and sorrow, All their sin and sorrow,

From all their sin and sorrow, All their sin and sorrow,

From all their sin and sorrow, All their sin and sorrow,

From all their sin and sorrow, All their sin and sorrow.

 

Let Your Kingdom Come

Words & Music: Bob Kauflin | (c) 2006 Sovereign Grace Praise

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
