Songs for Worship – May 5, 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

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

By Thy Mercy

Jesus, Lord of life and glory,
Bend from heav’n thy gracious ear;
While our waiting souls adore thee,
Friend of helpless sinners, hear.

From the depths of nature’s blindness,
From the hard’ning pow’r of sin,
From all malice and unkindness,
From the pride that lurks within.

By thy mercy, O deliver us, good Lord;
By thy mercy, O deliver us, good Lord, good Lord!

When the world around is smiling,
In the time of wealth and ease,
Earthly joys our hearts beguiling,
In the day of health and peace.   Chorus

In the weary hours of sickness,
In the times of grief and pain,
When we feel our mortal weakness,
When all human help is vain,

In the solemn hour of dying,
in the awful judgment day,
May our souls, on thee relying,
Find thee still our Rock and Stay.   Chorus

Speak, O Lord

“Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of Your Holy Word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory.

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of pow’r that can never fail—
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us—
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we’ll stand on Your promises,
And by faith we’ll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory.”

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
