Songs for Worship – November 25, 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!”

Come, Christians, Join To Sing

Rejoice, and sing to God our Lord, our King!
Lift up, and praise his Name! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Come, Christians, join to sing—Alleluia! Amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King—Alleluia! Amen!
Let all with heart and voice before his throne rejoice;
Praise is his gracious choice—Alleluia! Amen!

Come, lift your hearts on high—Alleluia! Amen!
Let praises fill the sky— Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend; to us he’ll condescend;
His love shall never end—Alleluia! Amen!

Rejoice, and sing to God our Lord, our King!
Lift up, and praise his Name! Alleluia!
Rejoice, and sing to God our Lord, our King!
Lift up, and praise his Name! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Praise yet our Christ again—Alleluia! Amen!
Life shall not end the strain—Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven’s blissful shore his goodness we’ll adore,
Singing forevermore, “Alleluia! Amen!   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

Nothing But The Blood

What can wash away my sin
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
For my cleansing this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus   Chorus

Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus   Chorus

This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus   Chorus

Praise the Father, Praise the Son

O sovereign God, O matchless King,
The saints adore, the angels sing,
And fall before the throne of grace;
To you belongs the highest praise.

These sufferings, this passing tide,
Under your wings I will abide,
And every enemy shall flee;
You are my hope and victory! 

Praise the Father, praise the Son,
Praise the Spirit, Three in One!
Clothed in power and in grace,
The Name above all other names.

To the valley for my soul,
Your great descent has made me whole,
Your Word my heart has welcomed home,
Now peace like water ever flows.   Chorus

Yours is the kingdom,
Yours is the power,
Yours is the glory, forever!
Yours is the kingdom,
Yours is the power,
Yours is the glory, forever!   Chorus

O Church, Arise

O Church, arise, and put your armor on;
Hear the call of Christ our Captain.
For now the weak can say that they are strong
In the strength that God has given.
With shield of faith and belt of truth,
We’ll stand against the devil’s lies;
An army bold, whose battle-cry is “Love!”
Reaching out to those in darkness. 

Our call to war: to love the captive soul,
But to rage against the captor.
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith and valor.
When faced with trials on every side,
We know the outcome is secure,
And Christ will have the prize for which he died:
An inheritance of nations!

Come see the cross, where love and mercy meet,
As the Son of God is stricken;
Then see his foes lie crushed beneath his feet,
For the Conqueror has risen!
And as the stone is rolled away,
And Christ emerges from the grave,
This victory march continues till the day
Every eye and heart shall see him. 

So Spirit come, put strength in every stride,
Give grace for every hurdle,
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful.
As saints of old still line the way,
Retelling triumphs of his grace,
We hear their calls and hunger for the day
When with Christ we stand in glory.
