Songs for Worship – October 7, 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!”

Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah

Click for recording

Hallelujah, praise Jehovah, O my soul, Jehovah praise;
I will sing the glorious praises of my God through all my days.
Put no confidence in princes, nor for help on man depend;
He shall die, to dust returning, and his purposes shall end.

Happy is the man who chooses Israel’s God to be his aid;
He is blessed whose hope of blessing on the Lord his God is stayed.
Heav’n and earth the Lord created; seas, and all that they contain;
He delivers from oppression; Righteousness he will maintain.

Food he daily gives the hungry, sets the mourning pris’ner free,
Raises those bowed down with anguish, makes the sightless eye to see.
Well Jehovah loves the righteous, and the stranger he befriends,
Helps the fatherless and widow, judgment on the wicked sends.

Hallelujah, praise Jehovah, O my soul, Jehovah praise;
I will sing the glorious praises of my God through all my days.
Over all God reigns forever, through all ages he is King;
Unto him, your God, O Zion, joyful hallelujahs sing.

Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners

Jesus! What a friend for sinners! Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me, He, my Savior, makes me whole.

Hallelujah! What a Savior! Hallelujah! What a friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving, He is with me to the end.

Jesus! What a strength in weakness! Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and often failing, He, my strength, my victory wins.   Chorus

Jesus! What a help in sorrow! While the billows o’er me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking, He, my comfort, helps my soul.   Chorus

Jesus! I do now receive Him, More than all in Him I find.
He hath granted me forgiveness, I am His, and He is mine.   Chorus

Who Is Like The Lord Our God

Our Father, he lifts from the ashes,
He raises the poor and the lost;
He seats them to dine at his table,
To feast without money or cost.
The lonely he settles in families,
The barren a mother he makes;
O happy the heart of the stranger
Who’s welcomed by this King of Grace!

Who is like the Lord our God?
Who with glory fills the sky,
But humbles himself with the broken to dwell?
Who is like our God?

Though equal to God in his glory,
Christ Jesus became like a slave;
He humbled himself in obedience
To Death, and the Cross, and the Grave.
Victorious, he rose to the highest;
In glory, the Savior was raised;
His name above all names exalted;
The heav’ns and the earth sing his praise!   Chorus

O Saints, fix your eyes on the Savior,
And count all your righteousness loss.
Be found in his love and his favor,
And share in his death on the cross;
That all of his power in victory,
Imparted to you may abound,
And sharing the suff’rings of Jesus,
You share in his glory and crown   Chorus

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in thee;
Let the water and the blood, from your wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure; cleanse me from its guilt and pow’r!

Not the labors of my hands can fulfill the law’s demands;
Should my passion never fade and my efforts all be weighed;
Still, for sin, they won’t atone––you must save, and you alone!

Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to the cross I cling;
Naked, come to you for dress; helpless, look to you for grace;
Wretched to the Fount I fly; wash me, Savior, or I die!

While I draw this fleeting breath, when my eyes shall close in death,
When I rise to worlds unknown, see you on your judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in thee; let me hide myself in thee;
Let me hide myself in thee!

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

Let Your Kingdom Come

Your glorious cause, O God,
Engages our hearts.
May Jesus Christ be known
Wherever we are.
We ask not for ourselves
But for your renown.
The cross has saved us, so we pray
Your kingdom come!

Let your kingdom come,
Let your will be done;
So that ev’ryone might know your Name!
Let your song be heard
Ev’rywhere on earth,
Till your sov’reign work on earth is done––
Let your kingdom come!

Give us your strength, O God,
And courage to speak.
Perform your wondrous deeds
Through those who are weak.
Lord use us as you want––
Whatever the test.
By grace we’ll preach your gospel till
Our dying breath!   Chorus

Let your will be done;
So that ev’ryone might know your Name!
Let your song be heard
Ev’rywhere on earth,
Till your sov’reign work on earth is done!   Chorus
