Songs for Worship – March 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!”

Your Great Name We Praise

Immortal, invisible, God only-wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes!
Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Not wanting, nor wasting, you rule us in might.
Your justice like mountains high soaring above,
Your clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.

Most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, your great name we praise!

All life comes from you, Lord, to both great and small;
In all life you live, Lord, the true life of all.
We blossom and flourish, but quickly grow frail;
We wither and perish, but you never fail.   Chorus

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Your angels adore you, all veiling their sight.
All praise we would render, O Father of grace,
Till one day in splendor we see face to face.   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

Who You Say I Am

Who am I that the highest King would welcome me?
I was lost, but he brought me in––oh his love for me!
Oh his love for me!

Whom the Son sets free,
Oh, is free indeed!
I’m a child of God––yes I am!

Free at last––he has ransomed me! His grace runs deep!
While I was a slave to sin, Jesus died for me!
Oh he died for me!

Whom the Son sets free,
Oh, is free indeed!
I’m a child of God––yes I am!
In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me!
I’m a child of God––yes I am!

I am chosen, not forsaken––I am who you say I am!
You are for me, not against me––I am who you say I am!
I am chosen, not forsaken––I am who you say I am!
You are for me, not against me––I am who you say I am!

Whom the Son sets free,
Oh, is free indeed!
I’m a child of God––yes I am!
In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me!
I’m a child of God––yes I am!

Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder

Let us love and sing and wonder,
Let us praise the Savior’s name;
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder,
He has quenched Mount Sinai’s flame.
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has brought us nigh to God.

Let us love the Lord who bought us,
Pitied us when enemies,
Called us by his grace and taught us,
Gave us ears, and gave us eyes.
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He presents our souls to God.

Let us sing, though fierce temptation
Threatens hard to bear us down;
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
Holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown.
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
Soon will bring us home to God.

Let us wonder grace and justice,
Join and point to mercy’s store,
When through grace in Christ our trust is,
Justice smiles and asks no more.

Let us praise and join the chorus
Of the saints enthroned on high;
Here they trusted him before us,
Now their praises fill the sky.
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou hast washed us with thy blood,
Thou art worthy, Lamb of God.

Before the Throne of God Above

Before the throne of God above,
I have a strong and perfect plea:
A great High Priest whose name is love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on his hands,
My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heav’n he stands,
No tongue can bid me thence depart,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on him and pardon me,
To look on him and pardon me.

Behold him there, the risen Lamb!
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I Am,
The King of glory and of grace.
One with himself, I cannot die;
My soul is purchased by his blood;
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ my Savior and my God,
With Christ my Savior and my God.

Living Hope

How great the chasm that lay between us,
How high the mountain I could not climb.
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke your name into the night.
Then through the darkness your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul!
The work is finished, the end is written––
Jesus Christ, my living hope!

Who could imagine so great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame!
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven,
The King of Kings calls me his own!
Beautiful Savior, I’m yours forever––
Jesus Christ, my living hope!

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free!
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me!
You have broken every chain;
There’s salvation in your name––
Jesus Christ, my living hope!

Then came the morning that sealed the promise!
Your buried body began to breathe;
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me––
Jesus, yours is the victory!   Chorus
