Songs for Worship – February 10, 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!”

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

Psalm 130 (From the Depths of Woe)

From the depths of woe I raise to thee the voice of lamentation;
Lord turn a gracious ear to me and hear my supplication!
If, thou, iniquities dost mark––our secret sins and misdeeds dark––
O who shall stand before thee? (Who shall stand before thee?)
O who shall stand before thee? (Who shall stand before thee?)

To wash away the crimson stain, grace, grace alone availeth;
Our works alas are all in vain––in much the best life faileth.
No man can glory in thy sight; all must, alike, confess thy might,
And live alone by mercy! (Live alone by mercy!)
And live alone by mercy! (Live alone by mercy!)

Therefore, my trust is in the Lord, and not in mine own merit!
On him, my soul shall rest––his Word upholds my fainting spirit!
His promised mercy is my fort, my comfort, and my sweet support!
I wait for it with patience! (Wait for it with patience!)
I wait for it with patience! (Wait for it with patience!)

What though I wait the live-long night and till the dawn appeareth,
My heart still trusteth in his might––it doubteth not nor feareth;
Do thus, O ye, of Israel’s seed––ye of the Spirit born indeed––
And wait till God appeareth! (Wait till God appeareth!)
And wait till God appeareth! (Wait till God appeareth!)

Though great our sins and sore our woes, his grace much more aboundeth!
His helping love no limit knows; our utmost need it soundeth!
Our Shepherd, good and true is he who will at last his Israel free
From all their sin and sorrow! (All their sin and sorrow!)
From all their sin and sorrow! (All their sin and sorrow!)

Abide With Me

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if thou abide with me.

Hold, thou, thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

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

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

Guide me, O thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but thou art mighty;
Hold me with thy powerful hand
Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore!
Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore!

Open now the crystal fountain
Whence the healing waters flow.
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer,
Be thou still my Strength and Shield!
Strong Deliverer,
Be thou still my Strength and Shield!

When I tread the verge of Jordan
Bid my anxious fears subside.
Death of deaths, and hell’s destruction!
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praises
I will ever give to thee!
Songs of praises
I will ever give to Thee!

Land me safe on Canaan’s side,
Bid my anxious fears;
Bid my anxious fears;
Land me safe on Canaan’s side,
Bid my anxious fears, goodbye!

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
