Songs for Worship – June 23, 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!”

Come, People of the Risen King

Come, people of the Risen King, who delight to bring him praise;
Come all and tune your hearts to sing to the Morning Star of grace.
From the shifting shadows of the earth, we will lift our eyes to him,
Where steady arms of mercy reach to gather children in.

Rejoice, Rejoice! Let every tongue rejoice!
One heart, one voice; O Church of Christ, rejoice!

Come, those whose joy is morning sun, and those weeping through the night;
Come, those who tell of battles won, and those struggling in the fight.
For his perfect love will never change, and his mercies never cease,
But follow us through all our days with the certain hope of peace.   Chorus

Come, young and old from every land––men and women of the faith;
Come, those with full or empty hands––find the riches of his grace.
Over all the world, his people sing––shore to shore we hear them call;
The Truth that cries through every age: “Our God is all in all!”   Chorus

O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

O the deep, deep love of Jesus: vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me.
Underneath me, all around me is the current of thy love,
Leading onward, leading homeward, to thy glorious rest above.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus: spread his praise from shore to shore!
How he loveth, ever loveth, changeth never, nevermore!
How he watches o’er his loved ones, died to call them all his own;
How for them he intercedeth, watcheth o’er them from the throne.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus: love of every love the best!
‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing, ’tis a haven sweet of rest.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus: ’tis a heav’n of heav’ns to me,
And it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to thee.
How it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to thee!

Abide With Me

Abide with me, fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, abide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile,
And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, though I oft left thee;
On to the close, Lord, abide with me.

I need thy presence every passing hour;
What but thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who, like thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, abide with me.

I fear no foe with thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness.
Where is thy sting, death? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, abide with me.

Hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heav’n’s morning breaks and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, Lord, abide with me.

Come Thou Fount

Come thou Fount of every blessing tune my heart to sing thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount––I’m fixed upon it––mount of God’s unchanging love!

Here I raise my Ebenezer; hither by thy help I’m come
And I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor, daily I’m constrained to be!
Let that grace now like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.

I Love the LORD (Psalm 116)

Regular text, sing:

Italicized text, sing:

1 I love the LORD, because my pleas for mercy he did hear!
2 So, while I live, I’ll call on him, who bow’d to me his ear!

3 The snares of death laid hold on me; by grief and trouble bound!
4 “O LORD,” I called, “deliver me!” And his salvation found!

5 God merciful and righteous is, yea, gracious is our LORD!
6 God saves the meek: I was brought low; he did me help afford.

7 So generous, so bountiful with you has been the LORD!
Return, my soul, return and see your rest has been restored!

8 My soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from falling: freed!
9 And so I walk the land of life with God and without need.

10 I was, myself, afflicted sore; yet, I believed the LORD.
11 Dismayed, as well, by lying men who sought their own reward.
Yet, I believed the LORD!

12 What shall I render to the LORD for all his gifts to me?
For, O my soul, with you the LORD has dealt abundantly!

13 I’ll of salvation raise the cup, and on the LORD’s name call.
14 I’ll pay my vows unto the LORD before his people all!

15 How dear to him his loved ones’ death––the LORD who saves them all!
16 And so, I serve the LORD who made my bonds of death to fall;
17-18 Thank-off’rings give and pay my vows before his people all!

19 Now as the temple of the LORD––his Church, his people free––
We, each of us with thankful love, shall hallelujah sing!
We, each of us with thankful love, shall hallelujah sing!

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
