God All Nature Sings Thy Glory

Music: Ludwig von Beethoven; Words: David Clowney; © 1960 Intervarsity Christian Fellowship; CCLI License #11029770

God, all nature sings Thy glory, and Thy works proclaim Thy might;
Ordered vastness in the heavens, ordered course of day and night;
Beauty in the changing seasons, beauty in the storming sea;
All the changing moods of nature praise the changeless Trinity.

Clearer still we see Thy hand in man whom Thou hast made for Thee;
Ruler of creation’s glory, image of Thy majesty.
Music, art, the fruitful garden, all the labor of his days,
Are the calling of his Maker to the harvest feast of praise.

But our sins have spoiled Thine image; nature, conscience only serve
As unceasing, grim reminders of the wrath which we deserve.
Yet Thy grace and saving mercy in Thy Word of truth revealed
Claim the praise of all who know Thee, in the blood of Jesus sealed.

God of glory, power, mercy, all creation praises Thee;
We, Thy creatures, would adore Thee now and through eternity.
Saved to magnify Thy goodness, grant us strength to do Thy will;
With our acts as with our voices Thy commandments to fulfill.
Saved to magnify Thy goodness, grant us strength to do Thy will;
With our acts as with our voices Thy commandments to fulfill.

Behold Our God

Words & Music: Ryan & Meghan Baird; © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship; CCLI License #11029770

Who has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at his voice;
All creation rises to rejoice.

Behold our God, seated on his throne; come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare; come, let us adore him!

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of his words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds? Refrain

Who has felt the nails upon his hands,
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave;
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign! Refrain

You will reign forever! Let your glory fill the earth!

Behold our God, seated on his throne; come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare; come, let us adore!
Behold our God, seated on his throne; come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare; come, let us adore him!

Laden With Guilt And Full Of Fears

Words: Isaac Watts; Music: Sandra McCracken; © 2001 Same Old Dress Music; CCLI License #11029770

Laden with guilt and full of fears, I fly to Thee, my Lord,
And not a glimpse of hope appears, but in Thy written Word
The volumes of my Father’’s grace does all my griefs assuage
Here I behold my Savior’’s face in every page.

This is the field where, hidden, lies the pearl of price unknown
That merchant is divinely wise who makes the pearl his own
Here consecrated water flows to quench my thirst of sin
Here the fair tree of knowledge grows, no danger dwells within.

This is the judge that ends the strife, where wit and reason fail
My guide to everlasting life, through all this gloomy vale
Oh may Thy counsels, mighty God, my roving feet command,
Nor I forsake the happy road that leads to Thy right hand.

Laden with guilt and full of fears, I fly to Thee, my Lord.

Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery

Music and Words: Matt Papa, Matt Boswell and Michael Bleecker; © 2013 Love Your Enemies Publishing; CCLI License #11029770

Come behold the wondrous mystery, in the dawning of the King.
He the theme of heaven’s praises; robed in frail humanity.
In our longing, in our darkness, now the light of life has come.
Look to Christ, who condescended; took on flesh to ransom us

Come behold the wondrous mystery: He the perfect Son of Man.
In His living, in His suffering never trace nor stain of sin.
See the true and better Adam come to save the hell-bound man.
Christ the great and sure fulfillment of the law; in Him we stand.

Come behold the wondrous mystery: Christ the Lord upon the tree.
In the stead of ruined sinners hangs the Lamb in victory.
See the price of our redemption; see the Father’s plan unfold.
Bringing many sons to glory—grace unmeasured, love untold.

Come behold the wondrous mystery: slain by death the God of life.
But no grave could e’er restrain Him; praise the Lord; He is alive!
What a foretaste of deliverance; how unwavering our hope.
Christ in power resurrected as we will be when he comes.
What a foretaste of deliverance; how unwavering our hope.
For no grave could e’er restrain Him; praise the Lord; He is alive!

Satisfied

Text: Clara T. Williams, 1875; Music: Karl Digerness, 1997; © Karl Digerness Music; CCLI License #11029770

All my life long I had panted
For a drink from some cool spring
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.

Hallelujah! He has found me,
The One my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies all my longings,
Through his blood I now am saved.

Feeding on the filth around me
‘Till my strength was almost gone,
Longed my soul for something better
Only still to hunger on.     Chorus

Poor I was and sought for riches,
Something that would satisfy,
But the dust I gathered ’round me
Only mocked my soul’s sad cry.     Chorus

Well of water ever springing,
Bread of life so rich and free,
Untold wealth that never faileth,
My Redeemer is to me!     Chorus 2x
