SING THE GOSPEL

Alas and Did my Savior Bleed by Isaac Watts

VERSE 1
Alas! and did my Savior bleed And did my Sov’reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head For such a worm as I?
VERSE 2
Was it for crimes that I had done He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown! And love beyond degree!
VERSE 3
Well might the sun in darkness hide And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died, For man the creature’s sin.
VERSE 4
Thus might I hide my blushing face While His dear cross appears,
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness, And melt my eyes to tears.
VERSE 5
But drops of grief can ne’er repay The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give myself away, ’Tis all that I can do.
REFRAIN
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!
All Creatures of Our God and King by Francis of Assisi

VERSE 1
All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam! 
CHORUS
O praise Him! O praise Him! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! 
VERSE 2
Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
Ye clouds that sail in heav’n along, O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice, Ye lights of evening, find a voice! 
VERSE 3
Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for thy Lord to hear, O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright,
That gives’t man both warmth and light. 
VERSE 4
And all ye men of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part, O praise Him! Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on Him cast your care! 
VERSE 5
Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness, O praise Him! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!
All I Have is Christ by Sovereign Grace Music

VERSE 1
I once was lost in darkest night yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life had led me to the grave
I had no hope that you would own a rebel to your will
And if you had not loved me first I would refuse you still 
VERSE 2
But as I ran my hell-bound race indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state and led me to the cross
And I beheld Gods love displayed you suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me now all I know is grace 
CHORUS
Hallelujah all I have is Christ
Hallelujah Jesus is my life
Hallelujah all I have is Christ
Hallelujah Jesus is my life 
VERSE 3
Now Lord I would be yours alone and live so all might see
The strength to follow your commands could never come from me
O father use my ransomed life in any way you choose
And let my song forever be my only boast is you 
All Praise to Christ by James Montgomery Boice and Brett Baggett

To him who loved us long ago, before we came to be,
who left his throne for earth below to save a wretch like me;
All praise to Christ from grateful men forevermore. Amen.
VERSE 2
My works stacked up are filthy rags compared to Your holy name,
I have no claim for righteousness but Christ has made the way;
All praise to Christ from grateful men forevermore. Amen. 
VERSE 3
To Him who freed us from our sin by dying on the cross,
To make us whole without, within, redeemed from dreadful loss;
All praise to Christ from grateful men, forevermore. Amen. 
VERSE 4
To Him who death but yields and bows before His living face,
the sinless, risen, Sovereign, Lord, makes men alive by grace;
All praise to Christ from grateful men forevermore. Amen. 
CHORUS

With angels, saints and seraphim the new creation sings,

Before the Throne of God Above by Stuart Townend

VERSE 1
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great high Priest who’s name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart. 
VERSE 2
When satan tempts me to despair
and tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin
Because the sinless Savior died
my sinful soul is counted free
For God the just is satisfied
to look on Him and pardon me,
to look on Him and pardon me 
CHORUS
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the One / Risen Son / of God 
VERSE 3
Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I am
The King of Glory and of grace
One in Himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God
With Christ my Savior and my God
Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery by Boswell, Pappa, and Bleecker

VERSE 1
Come behold the wondrous mystery in the dawning of the King.
He the theme of heaven’s praises robed in frail humanity.
In our longing, in our darkness now the light of life has come.
Look to Christ, who condescended took on flesh to ransom us 
VERSE 2
Come behold the wondrous mystery He the perfect Son of Man.
In His living, in His suffering never trace nor stain of sin.
See the true and better Adam come to save the hell-bound man.
Christ the great and sure fulfillment of the law; in Him we stand. 
VERSE 3
Come behold the wondrous mystery Christ the Lord upon the tree.
In the stead of ruined sinners hangs the Lamb in victory.
See the price of our redemption; see the Father’s plan unfold.
Bringing many sons to glory grace unmeasured, love untold. 
VERSE 4
Come behold the wondrous mystery; slain by death the God of life.
But no grave could e’er restrain Him; praise the Lord; He is alive!
What a foretaste of deliverance; how unwavering our hope.
Christ in power resurrected as we will be when he comes. 
Come Thou Fount by Robert Robinson

VERSE 1
Come thou fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it
Mount of thy redeeming love 
VERSE 2
Here I’ve found my greatest treasure
Hither to thy help I’ve come
And I hope, by thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed his precious blood 
VERSE 3
Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
Let thy goodness, like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above 
Grace Greater Than Our Sin by Julia Johnstone

VERSE 1
Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled. 
VERSE 2
Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross. 
CHORUS
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin! 
VERSE 3
Dark is the stain that we cannot hide;
What can we do to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
Brighter than snow you may be today. 
VERSE 4
Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive? 
Great Is Thy Faithfulness by Thomas Obadiah Chisolm

VERSE 1
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be. 
CHORUS
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
 “Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
Hallelujah! What a Savior by Philip P. Bliss

VERSE 1
“Man of Sorrows,” what a name,
for the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim!
Hallelujah! What a Savior 
Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
in my place condemned He stood
Sealed my pardon with His Blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior 
CHORUS
Hallelujah! (4x) 
VERSE 2
Guilty, vile, and helpless me,
Spotless Lamb of God was He.
Full atonement! Can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior 
Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished,” was His cry;
Now in Heaven exalted high!
Hallelujah! What a Savior 
VERSE 3
When He comes, our glorious King,
all His ransomed home to bring
Then anew this song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior
Holy, Holy, Holy by Reginald Herber

VERSE 1 
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
Holy, holy, holy!
merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

VERSE 2 
Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
Who wert and art and evermore shalt be.

VERSE 3 
Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye made blind by sin
Thy glory may not see,
Only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

VERSE 4 
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise Thy name,
In earth and sky and sea;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!
How Deep the Father’s Love For Us by Stuart Townend

VERSE 1
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 
VERSE 2
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 held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished 
VERSE 3
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection 
ENDING
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 deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
How Great Thou Art by Carl Boberg and Stuart K. Hine

VERSE 1
O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the Rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed. 
VERSE 2
When through the woods, the forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze 
CHORUS
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee;
How great Thou art! How great Thou art! 
VERSE 3
And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin. 
VERSE 4
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God how great Thou art!
In Christ Alone by Keith Getty

VERSE 1
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. 
VERSE 2
In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness 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. 
VERSE 3
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. 
VERSE 4
No guilt in 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.
It Is Well by Horatio Spafford

VERSE 1
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
“It is well, it is well with my soul.” 
VERSE 2
My sin, o, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! 
CHORUS
WOMEN: It is well
MEN REPEAT: It is well
WOMEN: With my soul
MEN REPEAT: With my soul
ALL: It is well, it is well, with my soul. 
VERSE 3
And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul. 
Jesus Paid It All by Elvina M. Hall

VERSE 1
I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray, 
Find in Me thine all in all.”
For nothing good have I —
Whereby Thy grace to claim,
I’ll wash my garments white —
In the blood of Calvary’s Lamb.
CHORUS
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.
VERSE 2
And now complete in Him
My robe His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side, I am divinely blest.
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone, Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.
VERSE 3
When from my dying bed My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,” Shall rend the vaulted skies.
And when before the throne I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down All down at Jesus’ feet.
BRIDGE
O praise the One who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead

The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect holy One crushed Your Son

Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once your enemy now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You

Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end

He has hushed the law’s loud thunder

Has secured our way to God

He will bring us home to God
Oh Love That Will Not Let Me Go by George Matheson

VERSE 1
O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee
I give thee back the life I owe,
that in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be
My life is not my own, it’s Yours
My life is not my own, it’s Yours 
VERSE 2
O light that follows all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
that in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be
So light a fire in my heart, and I will burn for You
So light a fire in my heart, and I will burn for You 
VERSE 3
O Joy that seeks me through the pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
and feel the promise is not vain That morn shall tearless be
So anoint me with joy, and joyful I will be
So anoint me with joy, and joyful I will be 
VERSE 4
O Cross that’s lifting up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
and from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be 
We will sing, “Holy, Holy is the King of Kings!” (repeat) 
Rock of Ages by Augustus Toplady

VERSE 1
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed
Be of sin the double cure,
Save from wrath and make me pure 
VERSE 2
Not the labor of my hands,
can fulfill Thy law’s demands
Should my passion never fade,
should my efforts all be weighed
These for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone 
VERSE 3
Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die 
VERSE 4
While I draw this fleeting breath,
when mine eyes shall close in death
When I rise to worlds unknown,
and behold thee on thy throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
Show Us Christ by Sovereign Grace Music

Cause it to bear fruit
Open up our ears to hear
Lead us in Your truth 
CHORUS

O God, reveal Your glory
Through the preaching of Your Word
Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord

Freedom for the slave
Riches for the needy soul
Come speak to us today

Where else can we go, Lord
Where else can we go
You have the words of eternal life

All it’s joys are but a name;
For His love abideth ever,
through eternal years the same

The Love of God by Frederick Lehmen

VERSE 1
The love of God is greater far,
than tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star,
and reaches to the lowest hell
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His only Son to win
His erring child He reconciled,
you and I pardoned from our sin.
CHORUS
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure,
it shall forevermore endure
How measureless and strong
The saints’ and angels’ song we sing “Holy! Holy!” 
VERSE 2
When ancient time shall pass away,
and earthly thrones and kingdoms fall
When men here refuse to pray,
and on rocks, hills and mountains call
God’s love so sure, will still endure,
all measureless and strong
“Redeeming grace to Adam’s race”
shall be the saints’ and angels’ song.
BRIDGE
Could we with ink the ocean fill,
and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above,
would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
though stretched from sky to sky.
The Solid Rock by Edward Mote

VERSE 1
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. 
VERSE 2
When darkness seems to hide face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale,
my anchor holds within the veil. 
CHORUS
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand. 
VERSE 3
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. 
VERSE 4
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.
