Songs for Worship – July 28, 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 Christians, Join To Sing

Rejoice, and sing to God our Lord, our King!

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! I am who you say I am!

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

Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven,
To his feet your tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
O my soul, his praises sing!

Praise him, praise him,
Praise him, praise him,
Praise the everlasting King;
Praise the everlasting King!

Praise him for his grace and favor
To our fathers in distress.
Praise him still, the same forever,
Slow to chide and swift to bless.

Praise him, praise him,
Praise him, praise him,
Glorious in his faithfulness!
Glorious in his faithfulness!

Father-like he tends and spares us,
Well our feeble frame he knows.
In his hands he gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.

Praise him, praise him,
Praise him, praise him,
Widely as his mercy goes.
Widely as his mercy goes.

Angels, help us to adore him;
You behold him face to face.
Sun and moon, bow down before him,
Dwellers all in time and space.

Praise him, praise him,
Praise him, praise him,
Praise with us the God of grace.
Praise with us the God of grace.
Praise with us the God of grace.

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.”

Taste and See (Ps 34)

I sought the LORD,
And he answered me
And delivered me
From every fear.

Those who look on him
Are radiant.
They’ll never be ashamed,
They’ll never be ashamed.

This poor man cried,
And the LORD heard me
And saved me from
My enemies.

The Son of God
Surrounds his saints.
He will deliver them,
He will deliver them!

Magnify the LORD with me!
Come exalt his name together!
Glorify the LORD with me!
Come exalt his name forever!

Oh, taste and see
That the LORD is good!
How blessed are we
Who hide in him!

Oh, fear the LORD,
O all you saints,
He’ll give you everything,
He’ll give you everything!   Chorus

Children, gather ’round,
Come and hear the word,
All who long for life,
Learn to fear the LORD.

Keep your lips from lies,
Turn from wrong to right,
Seek the way of peace,
Seek with all your might!

With his eyes and ears,
God attends the just;
But the wicked fall
When he shows his face!

From the righteous cry,
God will never hide!
Those with broken hearts,
You with humble souls.

Though afflicted now,
God will bring you out!
Not a broken bone––
He will bring you home!   Chorus

Evil will slay
The wicked ones;
They’ll be condemned,
Who hate the just.

But God redeems
The lives of all
Who rest in him;
Will you rest in him?   Chorus

Oh, taste and see
That the Lord is good!
Oh, seek the Lord
And find everything!

Sing His Love

Father, long before creation, you have chosen us in love,
And that love, so deep, so moving, draws us close to Christ above.
Still it keeps us, still it keeps us firmly fixed in Christ alone.

And the world will sing his love,
Yes the world will sing his love,
And we’ll all join hands, every woman, every man,
To sing his love, to sing his love.

Though the world may change its fashion, yet our God is ever the same;
His compassion and his cov’nant through all ages will remain.
God’s own children, God’s own children must forever praise his name.   Chorus

God’s compassion is my story, is my boasting all the day;
Mercy free and never failing moves my will, directs my way.
God so loved us, God so loved us that his only Son he gave.   Chorus

Loving Father, now before you, we will ever praise your love,
And our songs will sound unceasing till we reach our home above,
Giving glory, giving glory to our God and to the Lamb.   Chorus
