Songs for Worship – January 13, 2019

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!”

10,000 Reasons

Bless the Lord, O my soul;
O my soul, Worship his holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul;
I worship your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning;
It’s time to sing your song again.
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.   Chorus

You’re rich in love, and you’re slow to anger,
Your name is great, and your heart is kind.
For all your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.   Chorus

And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near, and my time has come,
Still my soul will sing your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forever more!   Chorus

All Creatures of our God and King

O praise him, O praise him!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us and sing!
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,
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice:

O praise him, O praise him!
Alleluia, Alleluia!
O praise him, O praise him!
Alleluia, Alleluia!
O praise him, O praise him!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

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

All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us and sing!

This is My Father’s World

This is my Father’s world, and to my list’ning ears,
all nature sings, and round me rings
the music of the spheres.

This is my Father’s world! I rest me in the thought
of rocks and trees, of skies and seas, his hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world! The birds their carols raise,
the morning light, the lily white,
declare their Maker’s praise.

This is my Father’s world! He shines in all that’s fair:
in the rustling grass I hear him pass, he speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world! O let me ne’er forget
that though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the Ruler yet.

This is my Father’s world! The battle is not done.
Jesus who died shall be satisfied, and earth and heav’n be one.

Praise to the LORD, the Almighty

Praise to the LORD, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise him, for he is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now, to his temple draw near—
Join me in glad adoration!

Praise to the LORD, who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth;
Shelters thee under his wings, yea, so gently sustaineth.
Hast thou not seen how thy desires e’er have been
Granted in what he ordaineth?

Praise to the LORD, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee!
Surely his goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
If with his love he befriend thee!

Praise to the LORD! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him!
Let the Amen sound from his people again,
Gladly for aye we adore him!
Let the Amen sound from his people again,
Gladly for aye we adore him!

Behold Our God

Who has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at his voice;
All creation rises to rejoice.

Behold our God, seated on his throne; come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare; come, let us adore him!

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of his words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?   Chorus

Who has felt the nails upon his hands,
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave;
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign!   Chorus

You will reign forever! Let your glory fill the earth! (repeat)

Behold our God, seated on his throne; come, let us adore him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare; come, let us adore   Chorus
