For The Beauty Of The Earth

Music: Conrad Kocher; Words: Folliot Sandford Pierpoint; CCLI License #11029770

For the beauty of the earth, for the glory of the skies,
For the love which, from our birth,
Over and around us lies.

Lord of all to Thee we raise
This, our hymn of grateful praise.

For the wonder of each hour, of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of light.   Chorus

For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild.   Chorus

For the church that, evermore, lifteth holy hands above,
Off’ring up on every shore
Her pure sacrifice of love.   Chorus

For Thyself––best Gift Divine––to our race so freely giv’n,
For that great, great love of Thine,
Peace on earth and joy in Heav’n!   Chorus

And Can It Be

Words: Charles Wesley, 1738; Music: Scott Roley; © 1994 Scott Roley Music; CCLI License #11029770

And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior’s blood?
Died he for me, who caused him pain,
For me, who him to death pursued?
Amazing love! How can it be
That thou, my God, should die for me?

Amazing love! How can it be
That thou, my God, should die for me?

He left his Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite his grace;
Humbled himself, so great his love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race.
‘Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me!   Chorus

Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
Your eye diffused a quickening ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light.
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed thee.   Chorus

No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, and all in him, is mine.
Alive in him, my living Head,
And clothed with righteousness divine,
Bold I approach the eternal throne,
And claim the crown through Christ my own.   Chorus

The Love of Christ Is Rich and Free

Words: William Gadsby; Music: Sandra McCracken; © 2001 Same Old Dress Music; CCLI License #11029770

The love of Christ is rich and free,
Fixed on his own eternally;
Nor earth, nor hell, can it remove;
Long as he lives, his own he’ll love.

His loving heart engaged to be
Their everlasting Surety;
‘Twas love that took their cause in hand,
And love maintains it to the end.

Love cannot from its post withdraw;
Nor death, nor hell, nor sin, nor law,
Can turn the Surety’s heart away;
He’ll love his own to endless day.

Love has redeemed his sheep with blood,
And love will bring them safe to God;
Love calls them all from death to life,
And love will finish all their strife.

He loves through every changing scene,
Nor aught from him can Zion wean;
Not all the wanderings of her heart
Can make his love for her depart.     Chorus

At death, beyond the grave, he’ll love;
In endless bliss, his own shall prove
The blazing glory of that love
Which never could from them remove,
Which never could from them remove.

 

Oh How Good It Is (Psalm 133)

Words & Music: Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty, Ross Holmes, Stuart Townend; © 2012 Gettymusic; Parakeet Boots Music; Townend Music; CCLI License #11029770

Oh how good it is
When the family of God
Dwells together in spirit
In faith and unity.
Where the bonds of peace,
Of acceptance and love
Are the fruit of His presence here among us.

So with one voice we’ll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we’ll live out His word
Till the whole earth sees
The Redeemer has come
For He dwells in the presence of His people.

Oh how good it is
On this journey we share
To rejoice with the happy
And weep with those who mourn.
For the weak find strength
The afflicted find grace
When we offer the blessing of belonging.   Chorus

Oh how good it is
To embrace His command
To prefer one another
Forgive as He forgives.
When we live as one
We all share in the love
Of the Son with the Father and the Spirit. Chorus

Psalm 133 (Trinity Psalter)

***We’re singing Psalm 133 to the tune AZMON (aka O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing). Below is the link to an instrumental version of AZMON

From Trinity Psalter; © 1994 Crown & Covenant Publications; Based on Scottish Psalter, 1650; Tune: AZMON; Arr. Will Milks; CCLI License #11029770

Behold how good a thing it is, and how becoming well,
When those that brethren are delight
In unity to dwell.

For it is like the precious oil poured out on Aaron’s head,
That, going down upon his beard,
Upon his garments spread.

Like Hermon’s dew upon the hills of Zion that descends,
The LORD commands His blessing there,
Ev’n life that never ends.
The LORD commands His blessing there,
Ev’n life that never ends.

Behold how good a thing it is, and how becoming well,
When those that brethren are delight
In unity to dwell.
When those that brethren are delight
In unity to dwell.
