Rejoice

#7004663 by Dustin Kensrue and Stuart Townend | 2013 Modern Hymnal Publishing, Dead Bird Theology, It’s All About Jesus Music, We Are Younger We Are Faster Music, and Unknown

Come and stand before your maker
Full of wonder full of fear
Come behold his power and glory
Yet with confidence draw near
For the one who holds the heavens
And commands the stars above
Is the God who bends to bless us
With an unrelenting love

Rejoice––Come and lift your hands and raise your voice
He is worthy of all praise
Rejoice––Sing the mercies of your king
And with trembling rejoice

We are children of the promise
The beloved of the Lord
Won with everlasting kindness
Bought with sacrificial blood
Bringing reconciliation
To a world that longs to know
The affections of a father
Who will never let them go   Chorus

All our sickness all our sorrows
Jesus carried up the hill
He has walked this path before us
He is walking with us still
Turning tragedy to triumph
Turning agony to praise
There is blessing in the battle
So take heart and stand amazed

Rejoice––When you cry to him he hears your voice
He will wipe away your tears
Rejoice––In the midst of suffering
He will help you sing   Chorus

Arise, O God, And Shine

by William Hurn; Chris Miner | 2004 Christopher Miner Music. Used by permission. All rights reserved.

Arise, O God, and shine in all Thy saving might,
And prosper each design to spread Thy glorious light;
Let healing streams of mercy flow
that all the earth Thy truth may know.

Bring distant nations near to sing Thy glorious praise;
Let every people hear and learn Thy holy ways.
Reign, mighty God, assert Thy cause,
and govern by Thy righteous laws.

Put forth Thy glorious power, that everyone may see
And earth present her store, in converts born to Thee.
God, our own God, His Church will bless,
And fill the world with righteousness.

To God, the only Wise, the one immortal King,
Let hallelujahs rise, from every living thing;
Let all that breathe, on every coast,
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

To Christ the Lord Let Every Tongue

 #3657988 by Samuel Stennett, Laura Taylor

To Christ the Lord let every tongue its noblest tribute bring
When He’s the subject of the song
Who can refuse to sing?
Survey the beauties of His face, and on His glories dwell
Think of the wonder of His grace
And all His triumphs tell.

Majestic sweetness sits enthroned upon His awful brow
His head with radiant glories crowned
His lips with grace o’erflow
No mortal can with Him compare among the sons of men
Fairer He is than all the fair
That fill the Heavenly train.

He saw me plunged in deep distress, He fled to my relief
For me He bore the shameful cross
And carried all my grief
His hand a thousand blessings pours upon my guilty head
His presence gilds my darkest hours
And guards my sleeping bed.

To Him I owe my life and breath and all the joys I have
He makes me triumph over death
And saves me from the grave
To Heaven the place of His abode, He brings my weary feet
Shows me the glories of my God
And makes my joy complete.

Since from His bounty I receive such proofs of love divine
Had I a thousand hearts to give
Lord, they should all be Thine
A thousand men could not compose
A worthy song to bring
Yet Your love is a melody
Our hearts can’t help but sing!

A thousand men could not compose
A worthy song to bring
Yet Your love is a melody
Our hearts can’t help but sing!

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us

#1558110 by Stuart Townend

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
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 sin 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 pow’r 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

Trinity Song

#7068847 by Sandra McCracken | 2016 © Drink Your Tea Music (Admin. by Music Services, Inc.)

Holy Father, Son, and Spirit;
Holy Communion, Three-in-One.

Come with you peace, with your invitation.
Bind us together with holy love.

O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing

#2647652 by Charles Wesley; Arr. Will Milks

O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer’s praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace.

My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread through all the earth abroad,
the honors of thy name.

Jesus, who breaks the pow’r of sin,
and sets the pris’ner free,
his blood can make the foulest clean,
his blood availed for me.

He speaks and, list’ning to his voice,
new life the dead receive;
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
the humble poor believe.
Believe, believe! Believe, believe!

Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
your loosen’d tongues employ;
ye blind, behold your Savior come;
and leap, ye lame, for joy.
Rejoice, rejoice! Rejoice, rejoice!

Jesus, the name that charms our fears,
that bids our sorrows cease;
’tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’tis life and health and peace.
’tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’tis life and health and peace.
Rejoice, rejoice! Rejoice, rejoice!
