Songs for Worship – June 2, 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!”

This Is Amazing Grace

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness?
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder,
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!

This is amazing grace!
This is unfailing love––
That you would take my place––
That you would bear my cross!
You laid down your life
That I would be set free;
Jesus, I sing for
All that you’ve done for me!

Who brings our chaos back into order?
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!

Who rules the nations with truth and justice;
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance?
The King of Glory––the King above all kings!  Chorus

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave!
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave!   (repeat)

Jesus, I sing for
All that you’ve done for me!   Chorus

King of Love

The King of Love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never!
I nothing lack if I am his
And he is mine forever,
And he is mine forever.

Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul he leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow
With food celestial feedeth

Never failing Ruler of my heart!
Everlasting Lover of my soul!
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is,
The King of Love my Shepherd is!

Lost and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love he sought me;
And on his shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me!

In death’s dark veil I fear no ill
With thee, dear Lord, beside me.
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.   Chorus

O hallelujah! Hallelujah!
O hallelujah! Hallelujah!   (repeat)

Never failing Ruler of my heart!
Everlasting Lover of my soul!
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is!   Chorus

And so, through all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never!
Good Shepherd, may I sing your praise
Within your house forever,
Within your house forever!

Jesus, I Come

Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,
Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into thy freedom, gladness and light,
Jesus, I come to thee.
Out of my sickness into thy health,
Out of my wanting and into thy wealth,
Out of my sin and into thyself,
Jesus, I come to thee.

Out of my shameful failure and loss,
Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into the glorious gain of thy cross,
Jesus, I come to thee.
Out of earth’s sorrows into thy balm,
Out of life’s storms and into thy calm,
Out of distress into jubilant psalm,
Jesus, I come to thee.

Out of unrest and arrogant pride,
Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into thy blessed will to abide,
Jesus, I come to thee.
Out of myself to dwell in thy love,
Out of despair into raptures above,
Upward forever on wings like a dove,
Jesus, I come to thee.

Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,
Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into the joy and light of thy home,
Jesus, I come to thee.
Out of the depths of ruin untold,
Into the peace of thy sheltering fold,
Ever thy glorious face to behold,
Jesus, I come to thee.

The King of Glory (Psalm 24)

The earth and its riches abundantly stored,
The world and its dwellers belong to the Lord.
For he on the seas its foundations has laid,
And firm on the waters its pillars has stayed.

O who shall the mount of the Lord God ascend?
And who in the place of his holiness stand?
The man of pure heart and of hands without stain,
Who swears not to idols, no serves what is vain.

Yes, he from the Lord shall a blessing receive;
The God of salvation shall righteousness give.
Thus, looking to him is a whole blessed race;
All those who, like Jacob, are seeking your face.

O gates, lift your head! Ancient doors, lift them high!
The great King of glory to enter draws night!
O who is the King that in glory draws near?
The Lord, mighty Lord of the battle, is here!

O gates, lift your head! Ancient doors, lift them high!
The great King of glory to enter draws night!
This great King of glory, O who can he be?
The Lord God of hosts, King of glory is he!

Lead On, O King Eternal

Lead on, O King eternal,
The day of march has come!
Henceforth in fields of conquest
Thy tents shall be our home.
Through days of preparation
Thy grace has made us strong,
And now, O King eternal,
We lift our battle song!

Lead on, O King eternal,
Till sin’s fierce war shall cease
And holiness shall whisper
The sweet “amen” of peace;
For not with swords loud clashing,
Nor roll of stirring drums,
But deeds of love and mercy,
The heav’nly kingdom comes!

Lead on, O King; lead on, O King;
Lead on, O King, lead on!

Lead on, O King eternal,
We follow, not with fears,
For gladness breaks like morning
Where’er thy face appears!
Thy cross is lifted o’er us,
We journey in its light,
The crown awaits the conquest
Lead on, O God of might!   Chorus

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
