Songs for Worship – November 12, 2017

All People that on Earth Do Dwell

Words: Psalm 100, The Book of Psalms for Worship | Music: Louis Bourgeois, 1551

All people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the LORD with cheerful voice.

HIM serve with mirth; his praise forth tell;

Come ye before him and rejoice.

 

Know that the LORD is God indeed;

Without our aid he did us make.

We are his folk; he doth us feed,

And for his sheep he doth us take.

 

O enter then his gates with praise;

Within his courts your thanks proclaim;

With grateful hearts your voices raise

To bless and magnify his name.

 

Because the LORD our God is good,

His mercy is forever sure;

His truth at all times firmly stood

And shall from age to age endure.

 

Let Your Kingdom Come

Words & Music: Bob Kauflin | © 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

  

Father, Long Before Creation

Words: Chinese Hymn, trans. Francis Jones | Music: Andrew Osenga

Father, long before creation thou hadst chosen us in love,

And that love so deep, so moving, draws us close to Christ above.

Still it keeps us, still it keeps us firmly fixed in Christ alone.

 

Though the world may change its fashion, yet our God is e’er the same;

His compassion and his cov’nant through all ages will remain.

God’s own children, God’s own children must forever praise his name.

 

And the world will sing his love,

Yes the world will sing his love,

And we’ll all join hands, every woman, every man,

To sing his love, to sing his love.

 

God’s compassion is my story, is my boasting all the day;

Mercy free and never failing moves my will, directs my way.

God so loved us, God so loved us that his only Son he gave.   Chorus

 

Loving Father, now before thee we will ever praise thy love,

And our songs will sound unceasing till we reach our home above,

Giving glory, giving glory to our God and to the Lamb,

Giving glory, giving glory to our God and to the Lamb.   Chorus

 

The Solid Rock aka “My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less”

Words: Edward Mote | Music: William B. Bradbury

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

 

When darkness veils his lovely face, I rest on his unchanging grace;

In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

 

His oath, his covenant, his blood support me in the ‘whelming flood;

When all around my soul gives way, he then is all my hope and stay.

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

 

When he shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in him be found:

Dressed in his righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne!

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

 

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand.

 

Swallowed Up Death

Words: Megan Pettipoole & David Potter | Music: Luke & Megan Pettipoole

The whole of nature groans with longing,

We ache for that promised glory;

Still we rejoice because we know

Plans formed of old, faithful and sure.

 

The whole of nature groans with longing,

We wait for that promised glory;

Still we rejoice because we know

Our sorrow’s end is coming.

 

He will swallow up death, and wipe the tears from our faces;

He will swallow up death, and wipe the tears from our faces!

We’ll sing, “This is our God we waited for, and he saved us!”

He will swallow up death, and wipe the tears from our faces!

 

Here in the darkness of our mourning,

We wait from the light that’s coming;

And on that day we will return,

With joy and gladness singing.   Refrain

 

Behold your God, he will come and save you!

Behold your God, he will come and save you! (3x)   Refrain 2x
