Songs for Worship – May 26, 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!”

How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, you saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent Word!
What more can he say than to you he has said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with you, O be not dismayed;
For I am your God, and will still give you aid;
I’ll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.”

“When through the deep waters I call you to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with you, your trouble to bless,
And sanctify to you your deepest distress.”

“When through fiery trials your pathway shall lie,
My grace all-sufficient shall be your supply.
The flames shall not hurt you; I only design
Your dross to consume and your gold to refine.”

“The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”

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

Your Great Name

Lost are saved, find their way, at the sound of your great name;
All condemned feel no shame, at the sound of your great name.
Every fear has no place, at the sound of your great name;
The enemy, he has to leave,
At the sound of your great name.

Jesus, worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us;
Son of God and Man, you are high and lifted up,
And all the world will praise your great name!
Your great name!

All the weak find their strength, at the sound of your great name;
Hungry souls receive grace, at the sound of your great name.
The fatherless, they find their rest, at the sound of your great name;
The sick are healed, the dead are raised,
At the sound of your great name.   Chorus

Redeemer, my Healer, Lord Almighty! My Savior, Defender, you are my King! (repeat)

Jesus, worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us;
Son of God and Man, you are high and lifted up,
And all the world will praise!   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

The Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil.   Chorus

His oath, his covenant, his blood
support me in the ‘whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay.   Chorus

When he shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in him be found:
Dressed in his righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne!  Chorus

Swallowed Up Death

The whole of nature groans with longing,
We ache for that promised glory;
Still we rejoice because we know
Plans formed of old, faithful and sure.

The whole of nature groans with longing,
We wait for that promised glory;
Still we rejoice because we know
Our sorrow’s end is coming.

He will swallow up death,
And wipe the tears from our faces;
He will swallow up death,
And wipe the tears from our faces!
We’ll sing, “This is our God we waited for,
And he saved us!”
He will swallow up death,
And wipe the tears from our faces!

Here in the darkness of our mourning,
We wait from the light that’s coming;
And on that day we will return,
With joy and gladness singing:   Chorus

Behold your God, he will come and save you! (repeat)

Chorus
