Abide With Me
Abide with me; 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, oft as I 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 power?
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.
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, Lord, abide with me.

Be Thou My Vision
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Come Praise and Glorify
Come praise and glorify our God, the Father of our Lord
In Christ He has in heav’nly realms His blessings on us poured
For pure and blameless in His sight He destined us to be
And now we’ve been adopted through His Son eternally

To the praise of Your glory
To the praise of Your mercy and grace
To the praise of Your glory
You are the God who saves

Come praise and glorify our God who gives His grace in Christ
In Him our sins are washed away, redeemed through sacrifice
In Him God has made known to us the myst’ry of His will
That Christ should be the head of all His purpose to fulfill

To the praise of Your glory
To the praise of Your mercy and grace
To the praise of Your glory
You are the God who saves

Come praise and glorify our God    For we’ve believed the Word
And through our faith we have a seal    The Spirit of the Lord
The Spirit guarantees our hope    Until redemption’s done
Until we join in endless praise    To God, the Three in One

To the praise of Your glory
To the praise of Your mercy and grace
To the praise of Your glory
You are the God who saves

To the praise of Your glory
To the praise of Your mercy and grace

Glorious Christ
The radiance of the Father before the dawn of time
You spoke and all creation came to be
The molecules and planets reveal Your great design
And every one was made so we could see, so we could see

You are the glorious Christ, the greatest of all delights
Your power is unequaled, Your love beyond all heights
No greater sacrifice than when You laid down Your life
We join the song of angels who praise You day and night, Glorious Christ

You left the air of heaven to breathe the dust of earth
And dwell among the outcast and the poor
You came to be forsaken and died to take our curse
So You could be our joy forevermore, forevermore

You are the glorious Christ, the greatest of all delights
Your power is unequaled, Your love beyond all heights
No greater sacrifice than when You laid down Your life
We join the song of angels who praise You day and night, Glorious Christ

You’re seated now in heaven, enthroned at God’s right hand
You’ve shattered death and freed us from our fears
And though we cannot see You, You’re coming back again
And all will be made right when You appear
And all will be made right when You appear

You are the glorious Christ, the greatest of all delights
Your power is unequaled, Your love beyond all heights
No greater sacrifice than when You laid down Your life
We join the song of angels who praise You day and night, Glorious Christ

How Deep the Father’s Love For Us
How deep the Father’s love for us, how vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son to make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss; the Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross, my sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that left Him there until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life; I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything, no gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart, His wounds have paid my ransom

How Great You Are
Our God is great, The Father of creation
His splendor fills the earth
The lightning crash, the thunder sings His praises
The galaxies can’t help but shout His worth

My soul must sing to You an offering.  How great You are!
My soul must sing, oh, let the heavens ring.  How great You are!
Oh, how great You are

The Word made flesh, God’s promise to the fallen
He came with pow’r to save
The light of life was crushed for our rebellion
He died our death and rose up from the grave

My soul must sing to You an offering.  How great You are!
My soul must sing, oh, let the heavens ring.  How great You are!
Oh, how great You are

Our King will come with trumpet blasts resounding
To claim His blood-washed bride
He’ll rend the skies, descending in His glory
And in an instant faith will turn to sight

My soul must sing to You an offering.  How great You are!
My soul must sing, oh, let the heavens ring.  How great You are!
Oh, how great You are

In Christ Alone
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt of life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

Jesus, Thank You
The mystery of the cross I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect Holy One, crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me

Your blood has washed away my sin, Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied, Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table, Jesus, thank You

By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end

Your blood has washed away my sin, Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied, Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table, Jesus, thank You

Lover of my soul, I want to live for You
Lover of my soul, I want to live for You
Lover of my soul, I want to live for You
Lover of my soul, I want to live for You

Your blood has washed away my sin, Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied, Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table, Jesus, thank You

O Great God
O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice or sin remain
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore

I was blinded by my sin
Had no ears to hear Your voice
Did not know Your love within
Had no taste for heaven’s joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace

Help me now to live a life
That’s dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me

Sing His Love
Father, long before creation, You had 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

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

And the world will sing His love; Yes, the world will sing His love
And we’ll all join hands, every woman, every man
And sing His love… We’ll sing His love

God’s compassion is my story, it 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

And the world will sing His love; Yes, the world will sing His love
And we’ll all join hands, every woman, every man
And sing His love… We’ll sing His love

Loving Father now before Thee, We will ever praise Thy love,
And our songs will sound unceasing ‘Til we reach our home above,
Giving glory, giving glory, To our God and to the Lamb

And the world will sing His love; Yes, the world will sing His love
And we’ll all join hands, every woman, every man
And sing His love… We’ll sing His love
