Crown Him with Many Crowns

Words: Matthew Bridges | Music: George J. Elvey

Crown Him with many crowns, The Lamb upon His throne
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns, all music but its own
Awake, my soul and sing, of Him who died for Thee
And hail Him as Thy matchless King, Through all eternity

Crown Him the Lord of love, Behold his hands and side
Rich wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified
No angel in the sky, can fully bear that sight
But downward bends His burning eye, At mysteries so bright

Crown Him the Lord of life, Who triumphed o’er the grave
And rose victorious in the strife, for those He came to save
His glories now we sing, Who died, and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring, And lives that death may die

Crown Him the Lord of Peace, Whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease, absorbed in prayer and praise
His reign shall have no end, and round his pierced feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend, Their fragrance ever sweet

 

Dawning Light Of Our Salvation

Words: Wendell Kimbrough; Music: Bruce Benedict; © 2012 Cardiphonia

Long in darkness Israel wandered;
Long, in mortal shadows, we
Walked in bondage and self-pity,
Trod in paths of sin and grief.
In the prophets’ words he told us,
Long the God of Israel spoke,
He alone in strength would save us
From the hands of all our foes.

Every valley, be exalted!
Every mountain, be made plane!
Crooked ways, repent and straighten!
All creation, bend in praise!

He shall raise a mighty Savior;
Born of David’s lineage, he
Comes in cov’nant love to claim us,
From our sins to set us free.
Light to those who dwell in darkness,
Life to those from death who flee,
Joy unto the earth, and gladness,
To your pathways dawning peace!     Chorus

Jesus, Lord, and mighty Savior,
David’s Son, and yet his King,
Dawning Light of our salvation,
Of your saving pow’r we sing!
Stand, O lame, and dance, ye broken,
Know the Savior’s healing grace;
Come, O deaf, and hear him singing;
Turn, O blind, behold his face!     Chorus 2x

Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder

Words: John Newton; Music: Laura Taylor; © 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.
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has brought us nigh to God.

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,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
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.
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
Soon will bring us home to God.

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,
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
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,
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou art worthy, Lamb of God.

Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace

Words: D. Herbert, 1838; Music: Clint Wells & Brian T. Murphy, 2004; © 2005 Red Mountain Church

Come boldly to the throne of grace,
Ye wretched sinners, come,
And lay your load at Jesus’ feet,
And plead what he has done.

“How can I come?” some soul may say,
“I’m lame and cannot walk;
My guilt and sin have stopped my mouth,
I sigh, but dare not talk.”

Come boldly to the throne of grace,
Though lost, and blind, and lame;
Jehovah is the sinner’s friend,
And ever was the same.

He makes the dead to hear his voice,
He makes the blind the see,
The sinner lost he came to save,
And set the pris’ner free.

Come boldly to the throne of grace,
For Jesus fills the throne,
And those he kills he makes alive,
He hears the sigh or groan.

Poor bankrupt souls who feel and know
The hell of sin within,
Come boldly to the throne of grace,
The Lord will take you in
Take you in.

Psalm 103 (O My Soul With All Thy Powers)

Words: James Montgomery | Music: Kevin Twit; © 2015 Kevin Twit Music

O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name;
O my soul, till life’s last hours, bless the Lord, his praise proclaim.
Thine infirmities he healed, he thy peace and pardon sealed;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.

He with loving-kindness crowned thee, satisfied thy mouth with good,
From the snares of death unbound thee, eagle-like thy youth renewed.
Rich in tender mercy he, slow to wrath, to favor free;
O my soul, with all thy powers,
Bless the Lord’s most holy name.

Bless the Lord (Bless the Lord), O my soul!
Bless the Lord (Bless the Lord), O my soul!
Bless the Lord (Bless the Lord), O my soul!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul!

He will not retain displeasure, though awhile he hide his face,
Nor his God-like bounty measure by our merit, but his grace.
As the heav’n the earth transcends, over us his care extends;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.

Far as east and west are parted, he our sins hath severed thus;
As a father, loving-hearted, spares his son, he spareth us.
For he knows our feeble frame; he remembers whence we came;
O my soul, with all thy powers,
Bless the Lord’s most holy name.     Chorus

From eternity enduring, to eternity the Lord
Still his people’s bliss ensuring, keeps his covenanted word.
Yea, with truth and righteousness, children’s children he will bless;
O my soul, with all thy powers, bless the Lord’s most holy name.

As in heaven, his throne and dwelling, King on earth he holds his sway;
Angels, ye in strength excelling, bless the Lord, his voice obey;
All his works in all the earth, bless the Lord, proclaim his worth;
O my soul, with all thy powers,
Bless the Lord’s most holy name.     Chorus
