Songs for Worship – August 18, 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

O Worship the King

O worship the King, all glorious above,
O gratefully sing his power and his love;
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

O tell of his might, O sing of his grace,
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
And dark is his path on the wings of the storm.

Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail.
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

Guide me, O thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but thou art mighty;
Hold me with thy powerful hand
Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore!
Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore!

Open now the crystal fountain
Whence the healing waters flow.
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer,
Be thou still my Strength and Shield!
Strong Deliverer,
Be thou still my Strength and Shield!

When I tread the verge of Jordan
Bid my anxious fears subside.
Death of deaths, and hell’s destruction!
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praises
I will ever give to thee!
Songs of praises
I will ever give to Thee!

Land me safe on Canaan’s side,
Bid my anxious fears;
Bid my anxious fears;
Land me safe on Canaan’s side,
Bid my anxious fears, goodbye!

Who Is Like the LORD Our God (Psalm 113)

Our Father, he lifts from the ashes,
He raises the poor and the lost;
He seats them to dine at his table,
To feast without money or cost.
The lonely he settles in families,
The barren a mother he makes;
O happy the heart of the stranger
Who’s welcomed by this King of Grace.

Who is like the LORD our God?
Who, with glory, fills the sky,
But humbles himself with the broken to dwell?
Who is like our God?

Though equal to God in his glory,
Christ Jesus became like a slave;
He humbled himself in obedience
To Death, and the Cross, and the Grave.
Victorious, he rose to the highest;
In glory, the Savior was raised.
His name above all names exalted;
The heav’ns and the earth sing his praise!   Chorus

O Saints, fix your eyes on the Savior
And count all your righteousness loss.
Be found in his love and his favor,
And share in his death on the cross;
That all of his power in victory,
Imparted to you may abound,
And sharing the suff’rings of Jesus,
You share in his glory and crown!   Chorus

Psalm 114

1 When Jacob’s house from Egypt came, and Isr’el left a foreign tongue,
2 Then Judah was God’s holy place; in Israel he set his throne!

3 The Sea beheld and swiftly fled; the river Jordan turned away.
4 The lofty Mountains skipped like rams, the Hills like little lambs at play.

5 What caused you, Sea, to flee; and Jordan turn away;
6 You Mountains and you Hills, like lambs and rams at play?
When Isr’el went from Pharaoh’s land.

7 Now, tremble Earth, before the Lord; before the face of Jacob’s God,
8 who turns the rock into a pool, and from the flint makes water flood!

Behold! The Lord draws near; see Jacob’s God arrive!
O Earth, adore and fear! Before him, bow and live,
For nothing in his way shall stand!

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
