Songs for Worship – February 17, 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!”

All Hail the Pow’r of Jesus’ Name

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name! Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem and crown him Lord of all,
Bring forth the royal diadem and crown him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race, ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace and crown him Lord of all,
Hail him who saves you by his grace and crown him Lord of all.

Let every kindred every tribe on this terrestrial ball
To him all majesty ascribe and crown him Lord of all,
To him all majesty ascribe and crown him Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng we at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song and crown him Lord of all,
We’ll join the everlasting song and crown him Lord of all,
and crown him Lord of all!

Come Ye Sinners

Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus, ready, stands to save you,
Full of pity, joined with power.
He is able, He is able;
He is willing; doubt no more.

Come ye needy, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.
Without money, without money
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.

Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and broken by the fall;
If you tarry ’til you’re better,
You will never come at all.
Not the righteous, not the righteous;
Sinners Jesus came to call.

Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requires
Is to feel your need of Him.
This He gives you, this He gives you,
‘Tis the Spirit’s rising beam.

Lo! The Incarnate God, ascended;
Pleads the merit of His blood.
Venture on Him; venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude.
None but Jesus, none but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good.

Lord, I Need You

Lord, I come, I confess;
Bowing here I find my rest;
Without you I fall apart––
You’re the One who guides my heart.

Lord, I need you, oh, I need you!
Every hour I need you!
My one defense, my righteousness––
Oh God, how I need you!

Where sin runs deep, your grace is more;
Where grace is found, is where you are;
And where you are, Lord, I am free––
Holiness is Christ in me!%Chorus

Teach my song to rise to you
When temptation comes my way;
And when I cannot stand, I’ll fall on you;
Jesus, you’re my hope and stay!%Chorus

Joy to the World

Joy to the world––the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heav’n and nature sing, and heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n, and heav’n and nature sing.

Joy to the earth––the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy, repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found, far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness
And wonders of his love, and wonders of his love,
And wonders, wonders of his love.

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

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed, great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!
His reign on earth begun!

He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free,
To take away transgression, and rule in equity!%Chorus

He comes with comfort, speedy, to those who suffer wrong,
To help the poor and needy, and bid the weak be strong!
To give them songs for sighing––their darkness turn to light––
Whose souls, condemned and dying, are precious in his sight!%Chorus

To him shall prayer unceasing and daily vows ascend;
His kingdom still increasing––a kingdom without end!
O’er every foe victorious, he on his throne shall rest
From age to age more glorious––all-blessing and all-blessed!%Chorus

The tide of time shall never his covenant remove!
His name shall stand forever; that name to us is Love!%Chorus
