Songs for Worship – March 18, 2018

Holy Holy Holy

Words: Reginald Heber | Music: John Dykes

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song 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!

 

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed

Words: James Montgomery | Music: Sandra McCracken; © 2012 Drink Your Tea Music 

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed, great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!
His reign on earth begun!

He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free
To take away transgression, and rule in equity     Chorus

He comes with comfort speedy to those who suffer wrong
To help the poor and needy, and bid the weak be strong
To give them songs for sighing, their darkness turn to light
Whose souls, condemned and dying, are precious in His sight    Chorus

To Him shall prayer unceasing and daily vows ascend
His kingdom still increasing, a kingdom without end
O’er every foe victorious, he on his throne shall rest,
From age to age more glorious, all-blessing and all-blessed.         Chorus

The tide of time shall never His covenant remove
His name shall stand forever; that name to us is Love     Chorus

 

His Mercy Is More

Music and Words: Matt Boswell and Matt Papa; © 2016 Messenger Hymns; CCLI #7065053

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient all knowing He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many His mercy is more 

Praise the Lord His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness new every morn
Our sins they are many His mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father so tender is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest the vilest the poor
Our sins they are many His mercy is more         Chorus

What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment His life was the cost
We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many His mercy is more         Chorus 2x

 

Who Is Like the Lord Our God

Words: Wendell Kimbrough | Music: Wendell Kimbrough & Bruce Benedict; © 2013 Wendell Kimbrough

Our Father, he lifts from the ashes,
He raises the poor and the lost;
He seats them to dine at his table,
To feast without money or cost.
The lonely he settles in families,
The barren a mother he makes;
O happy the heart of the stranger
Who’s welcomed by this King of Grace. 

Who is like the Lord our God?
Who with glory fills the sky,
But humbles himself with the broken to dwell?
Who is like our God?

Though equal to God in his glory,
Christ Jesus became like a slave;
He humbled himself in obedience
To Death, and the Cross, and the Grave.
Victorious, he rose to the highest;
In glory, the Savior was raised.
His name above all names exalted;
The heav’ns and the earth sing his praise            Chorus

O Saints, fix your eyes on the Savior
And count all your righteousness loss.
Be found in his love and his favor,
And share in his death on the cross;
That all of his power in victory,
Imparted to you may abound,
And sharing the suff’rings of Jesus,
You share in his glory and crown          Chorus 2x

 

O God, Show Mercy to Us (Psalm 67)

Words: The Book of Psalms for Worship; Music: Gustav Holst; THAXTED

O God, show mercy to us, and bless us with your grace,
And cause to shine upon us the brightness of your face;
So that the whole world over may truly know your way,
And so that your salvation all nations see displayed.
O God, let peoples praise you, let all the peoples praise,
Let nations come rejoicing and songs of gladness raise.

For you will judge the peoples with perfect equity;
To nations of the whole earth a Governor you’ll be.
O God, let peoples praise you, let all the peoples praise!
The earth has brought its bounty throughout its harvest days.
Since God, our God, will bless us, yes God will blessing send,
That all the earth may fear him to its remotest end.

O God, let peoples praise you, let all the peoples praise!
The earth has brought its bounty throughout its harvest days.
Since God, our God, will bless us, yes God will blessing send,
That all the earth may fear him to its remotest end.

All Hail the Pow’r of Jesus’ Name

Words: Edward Perronet & John Rippon; Music: Oliver Holden

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name! Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem and crown him Lord of all,
Bring forth the royal diadem and crown him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race, ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace and crown him Lord of all,
Hail him who saves you by his grace and crown him Lord of all.

Let every kindred every tribe on this terrestrial ball
To him all majesty ascribe and crown him Lord of all,
To him all majesty ascribe and crown him Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng we at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song and crown him Lord of all,
We’ll join the everlasting song and crown him Lord of all,
and crown him Lord of all!
