Songs for Worship – August 19, 2018

Resources for personal devotion and/or family worship––whether planned or impromptu (e.g., like singing together in the car).

These song arrangements will differ in varying degrees from what you’ll hear at Cross Park, yet these melodies will prepare you for making “a joyful noise to the LORD!”

All Glory, Laud, And Honor

All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer King,
To whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring!
Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son,
Who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and Blessed One!

The people of the Hebrews with palms before thee went;
Our prayer and praise and anthems before thee we present.
To thee, before thy passion, they sang their hymns of praise;
To thee, now high exalted, our melody we raise.

Thou didst accept their praises; accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest, thou good and gracious King.
All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer King,
To whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring!

Dawning Light Of Our Salvation

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

Hast Thou Heard Him, Seen Him, Known Him?

Hast thou heard him, seen him, known him?
Is not thine a captured heart?
Chief among ten thousand own him,
Joyful choose the better part.

Captivated by his beauty,
Worthy tribute haste to bring.
Let his peerless worth constrain thee,
Crown him now unrivaled King.

What can strip the seeming beauty,
From the idols of the earth?
Not a sense of right or duty,
But the sight of peerless worth.   Chorus

‘Tis that look that melted Peter,
‘Tis that face that Stephen saw,
‘Tis that heart that wept with Mary,
Can alone from idols draw.   Chorus

Thine Is The Glory

Thine is the glory, risen, conqu’ring Son;
endless is the vict’ry Thou o’er death hast won.
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
kept the folded grave-clothes where Thy body lay.

Thine be the glory, risen, conqu’ring Son;
endless is the vict’ry Thou o’er death hast won.

Lo, Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb.
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
let His church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,
for the Lord now liveth; death hath lost its sting.   Chorus

No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life!
Life is nought without Thee; aid us in our strife;
make us more than conqu’rors, through Thy deathless love;
bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.   Chorus

Greater

From him, through him, and to him are all things––
To God be the glory!
His Word endures from beginning to end––
To God be the glory, to God be the glory!

Greater is the One who lives in me;
Greater is the love of Jesus;
Greater than my sin, greater than the grave;
Above all other thrones, above all other names!
Greater––you are greater!

He was, and is, and forever will be––
To God be the glory!
His pow’r in us, his strength for the weak––
To God be the glory, to God be the glory!   Chorus

   Jesus, you reign forever! Jesus, you reign forever!
   There’s no one like you––Jesus, you reign!
   Jesus, you reign forever! Jesus, you reign forever!
   There’s none beside you––Jesus, you reign!
        (repeat)

Greater is the One who lives in me;
Greater is the love of Jesus;
Greater than my sin, greater than the grave;
Above all other thrones, above all other names!   Chorus
