Songs for Worship – January 12, 2020

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!”

Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder

Let us love and sing and wonder,
Let us praise the Savior’s name;
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder,
He has quenched Mount Sinai’s flame.
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has brought us nigh to God.

Let us love the Lord who bought us,
Pitied us when enemies,
Called us by his grace and taught us,
Gave us ears, and gave us eyes.
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He has washed us with his blood,
He presents our souls to God.

Let us sing, though fierce temptation
Threatens hard to bear us down;
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
Holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown.
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
He who washed us with his blood,
Soon will bring us home to God.

Let us wonder grace and justice,
Join and point to mercy’s store,
When through grace in Christ our trust is,
Justice smiles and asks no more.

Let us praise and join the chorus
Of the saints enthroned on high;
Here they trusted him before us,
Now their praises fill the sky:
You have washed us with your blood,
You have washed us with your blood,
You have washed us with your blood,
You are worthy, Lamb of God.

10,000 Reasons

Bless the Lord, O my soul;
O my soul, Worship his holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul;
I worship your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning;
It’s time to sing your song again.
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.   Chorus

You’re rich in love, and you’re slow to anger,
Your name is great, and your heart is kind.
For all your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.   Chorus

And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near, and my time has come,
Still my soul will sing your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forever more!   Chorus

Go To Dark Gethsemane

Go to dark Gethsemane,
ye that feel the tempter’s power
Your Redeemer’s conflict see,
watch with Him one bitter hour
Turn not from His griefs away;
learn of Jesus Christ to pray.
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

See Him at the judgment hall,
beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of Christ to bear the cross!
Learn of Christ to bear the cross!

Calvary’s mournful mountain climb;
there, adoring at His feet
Mark that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete
“It is finished!” hear Him cry;
learn of Jesus Christ to die!
Learn of Jesus Christ to die!

Early hasten to the tomb
where they laid His breathless clay
All is solitude and gloom.
Who has taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes;
Savior, teach us so to rise!
Savior, teach us so to rise!

Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me

Jesus, Savior, pilot me
Over life’s tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rocks and treach’rous shoal;
Chart and compass came from thee;
Savior, pilot me!

Though the sea be smooth and bright,
Sparkling with the stars of night;
And my ship’s path be ablaze
With the light of blissful days––
Still I know my need of thee:
Savior, pilot me!

As a mother stills her child,
Thou can hush the ocean wild.
Boist’rous waves obey thy will
When thou says to them, “Be still!”
Wondrous Sov’reign of the sea,
Savior, pilot me!

When at last I near the shore,
And the fearful breakers roar––
They between me and thy rest––
I shall lean upon thy breast!
May I hear thee say to me,
“I will pilot thee!”

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

Let Your Kingdom Come

Your glorious cause, O God,
Engages our hearts.
May Jesus Christ be known
Wherever we are.
We ask not for ourselves
But for your renown.
The cross has saved us, so we pray
Your kingdom come!

Let your kingdom come,
Let your will be done;
So that ev’ryone might know your Name!
Let your song be heard
Ev’rywhere on earth,
Till your sov’reign work on earth is done––
Let your kingdom come!

Give us your strength, O God,
And courage to speak.
Perform your wondrous deeds
Through those who are weak.
Lord use us as you want––
Whatever the test.
By grace we’ll preach your gospel till
Our dying breath!   Chorus

Let your will be done;
So that ev’ryone might know your Name!
Let your song be heard
Ev’rywhere on earth,
Till your sov’reign work on earth is done!   Chorus
