Songs for Worship – September 30, 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 Creatures of our God and King

All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us and sing, O praise him, Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam, thou silver moon with softer gleam,
O praise him, O praise him, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
ye clouds that sail in heav’n along, O praise him, Alleluia!
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice, ye lights of evening, find a voice,
O praise him, O praise him, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship him in humbleness, O praise him, Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son, and praise the Spirit, three in one.
O praise him, O praise him, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Psalm 62

My soul finds rest in God alone:
My rock and my salvation;
A fortress strong against my foes;
And I will not be shaken!
Though lips may bless, and hearts may curse,
And lies like arrows pierce me,
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness––
I’ll look to him who hears me!

O praise him, hallelujah!
My Delight and my Reward!
Everlasting, never failing:
My Redeemer, my God!

Find rest, my soul, in God alone,
Amid the world’s temptations.
When evil seeks to take a hold,
I’ll cling to my salvation!
Though riches come and riches go,
Don’t set your heart upon them.
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven.   Chorus

I’ll set my gaze on God alone
And trust in him completely.
With ev’ry day, pour out my soul,
And he will prove his mercy!
Though life is but a fleeting breath––
A sigh too deep to measure––
My King has crushed the curse of death,
And I am his forever!   Chorus

O praise him, O praise him!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!   (repeat)

Chorus

By Thy Mercy

Jesus, Lord of life and glory,
Bend from heav’n thy gracious ear;
While our waiting souls adore thee,
Friend of helpless sinners, hear.

From the depths of nature’s blindness,
From the hard’ning pow’r of sin,
From all malice and unkindness,
From the pride that lurks within.

By thy mercy, O deliver us, good Lord;
By thy mercy, O deliver us, good Lord, good Lord!

When temptation sorely presses
In the day of Satan’s pow’r,
In our times of deep distresses,
In each dark and trying hour,

When the world around is smiling,
In the time of wealth and ease,
Earthly joys our hearts beguiling,
In the day of health and peace.   Chorus

In the weary hours of sickness,
In the times of grief and pain,
When we feel our mortal weakness,
When all human help is vain,

In the solemn hour of dying,
in the awful judgment day,
May our souls, on thee relying,
Find thee still our Rock and Stay.   Chorus

This Is Amazing Grace

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness?
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder,
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!

This is amazing grace!
This is unfailing love––
That you would take my place––
That you would bear my cross!
You laid down your life
That I would be set free;
Jesus, I sing for
All that you’ve done for me!

Who brings our chaos back into order?
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!

Who rules the nations with truth and justice;
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!   Chorus

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave!
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave!   (repeat)

Jesus, I sing for
All that you’ve done for me!   Chorus

Jesus, I Am Resting

Jesus, I am resting, resting, in the joy of what thou art;
I am finding out the greatness of thy loving heart!
Thou hast bid me gaze upon thee, and thy beauty fills my soul,
For by thy transforming power, thou hast made me whole!

Oh, how great thy lovingkindness––deeper, broader than the sea!
Oh, how marvelous thy goodness, lavished all on me!
Yes, I rest in thee, Beloved––know what wealth of grace is thine;
Know the certainty of promise, and have made it mine!

Jesus, I am resting, resting, in the joy of what thou art;
I am finding out the greatness of thy loving heart!

Simply trusting thee, Lord Jesus, I behold thee as thou art;
And thy love––so pure, so changeless––satisfies my heart!
Satisfies its deepest longings; meets supplies its ev’ry need;
And surrounding me with blessings––thine is love indeed!   Chorus

Ever lift thy face upon me, as I work and wait for thee;
Resting ’neath thy smile, Lord Jesus, Earth’s dark shadows flee!
Brightness of my Father’s glory, sunshine of my Father’s face;
Keep me ever trusting, resting––fill me with thy grace.   Chorus

The Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil.   Chorus

His oath, his covenant, his blood
support me in the ‘whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay.   Chorus

When he shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in him be found:
Dressed in his righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne!   Chorus
