Songs for Worship – February 2, 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!”

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!
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

Anchor of Hope

Marvelous, wonderful, infinite God;
Author of all that is good;
Faithful provider and giver of life;
Source of all power and love!

Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise;
Refuge of strength to the end;
Righteous redeemer and mighty to save––
He’s the anchor of hope for the souls of man!

Gracious, compassionate, merciful God;
Radiant, holy delight;
Beautiful Father, victorious Son;
Source of unchangeable light!   Chorus

You are light in the dark,
You are healing for the broken heart
You are hope, you are Lord,
You are life, you are love that endures!

Powerful, constant, unwavering God;
Shepherd who comes for the lost;
Rock of salvation––remarkable love––
Savior who died on the cross!   Chorus

Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace

Come boldly to the throne of grace,
Ye wretched sinners, come,
And lay your load at Jesus’ feet, And plead what he has done.

“How can I come?” some soul may say,
“I’m lame and cannot walk;
My guilt and sin have stopped my mouth, I sigh, but dare not talk.”

Come boldly to the throne of grace,
Though lost, and blind, and lame;
Jehovah is the sinner’s friend, And ever was the same.

He makes the dead to hear his voice,
He makes the blind the see,
The sinner lost he came to save, And set the pris’ner free.

Come boldly to the throne of grace,
For Jesus fills the throne,
And those he kills he makes alive, He hears the sigh or groan.

Poor bankrupt souls who feel and know
The hell of sin within,
Come boldly to the throne of grace, The Lord will take you in
Take you in.

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

Oh Give Thanks (Psalm 107)

We were wand’ring in the desert with our souls so starved and weak.
We were hungry for a homeland we did not know how to seek.
But we lifted up our voices to the only One who hears;
And the God of mercy came and brought us near.

We were locked out of the garden, and our backs bent down with pain.
In the shadow of death’s darkness, we were slaves to sin and blame.
Then we cried out in our labor to the only One who hears,
And the God of mercy wiped away our tears.

Oh give thanks to the Lord for His love endures forever!
We were wandering and lost, and our Father brought us home,
To a safe dwelling place, to a feast of joy and laughter.
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

We were fools in our rebellion, with our hunger strike of pride.
We were sick and growing closer to the death we should have died.
Then he heard of our condition, and he called us by our names;
And the God of glory took away our shame.   Chorus

We were far out on the ocean, making wealth and chasing dreams,
But the waves of great destruction brought us tremb’ling to our knees.
Then we cried like drunken sailors to the only One who hears,
And the God of comfort took away our fears.   Chorus
