God Moves in a Mysterious Way

VERSE 1
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.

VERSE 2
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs
And works His sovereign will.

CHORUS
God of mercy, God of grace
Give us eyes to see;
Eyes to see your smiling face
Behind the mystery
Behind the mystery

VERSE 3
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.

VERSE 4
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.

CHORUS

VERSE 5
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flow’r.

VERSE 6
Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.

CHORUS

Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

VERSE 1
Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word;
Just to rest upon His promise;
Just to know, Thus saith the Lord.

CHORUS
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him,
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er,
Jesus, Jesus, Precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more.

VERSE 2
O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
Just in simple faith to plunge me,
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood.

VERSE 3
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life, and rest, and joy, and peace.

VERSE 4
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Grace Alone

VERSE 1
I was an orphan, lost at the fall;
Running away when I’d hear you call, But Father, you worked your will.
I had no righteousness of my own
I had no right to draw near your throne,
But, Father, you loved me still. 

CHORUS 1
And in love, before you laid the world’s foundation,
You predestined to adopt me as your own.
You have raised me up so high above my station;
I’m a child of God by grace, and grace alone 

VERSE 2
You left your home to seek out the lost;
You knew the great and terrible cost
But Jesus, your face was set.
I worked my fingers down to the bone;
But nothing I did could ever atone,
But Jesus, you paid my debt. 

CHORUS 2
By your blood I have redemption and salvation.
Lord you died that I might reap what you have sown,
And you rose that I might be a new creation.
I am born again by grace, and grace alone. 

VERSE 3
I was darkness all of my life,
I never knew the day from the night,
But Spirit, you made me see.
I swore I knew the way on my own;
Head full of rocks, a heart made of stone
But Spirit, you moved in me. 

CHORUS 3
And At your touch my sleeping spirit was awakened;
On my darkened heart the light of Christ has shone.
Called into a kingdom that cannot shaken;
Heaven’s citizen by grace, and grace alone. 

ENDING
So I’ll stand in faith by grace, and grace alone
I will run the race by grace, and grace alone
I will slay my sin by grace, and grace alone
I will reach the end by grace, and grace alone 

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

VERSE 1
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free! 

CHORUS
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace. 

VERSE 2
Through death into life everlasting He passed,
and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conqu’rors we are! 

VERSE 3
His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell! 

He Will Hold Me Fast

VERSE 1
When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast. 

CHORUS
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast. 

VERSE 2
Those He saves are His delight,
Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in his holy sight,
He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost;
His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast. 

VERSE 3
For my life He bled and died,
Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied;
He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life,
He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight,
When He comes at last! 

When I Survey The Wondrous Cross

VERSE 1
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride. 

VERSE 2
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood. 

VERSE 3
See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown 

VERSE 4
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all. 

His Mercy Is More

VERSE 1
What love could remember, no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all-knowing, He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

CHORUS
Praise the Lord
His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness
New every morn’
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

VERSE 2
What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father so tender is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more (CHORUS)

VERSE 3
What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment His life was the cost
We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more (CHORUS)

Ye That Pass By

VERSE 1
All ye that pass by, to Jesus draw nigh:
To you is it nothing that Jesus should die?
Our ransom and peace, Our surety He is:
Come, see if there ever was sorrow like His. 

CHORUS 1
For what we have done His blood must atone:
The Father hath punished for us His dear Son. 

VERSE 2
He dies to atone for sins not His own;
Your debt He hath paid, and your work He hath done.
Ye all may receive the peace He did leave,
Who made intercession, “My Father, forgive!” (CHORUS 2) 

CHORUS 2
For what we have done His blood must atone:
The Father hath punished for us His dear Son.
The Lord, in the day of His anger, did lay
Your sins on the Lamb, and He bore them away. 

BRIDGE
His death is my plea; my Advocate see,
And hear the blood speak that hath answered for me.
My ransom He was when He bled on the cross;
And losing His life He hath carried my cause. (CHORUS 1)

How Marvelous

VERSE 1
I stand amazed in the presence
of Jesus the Nazarene,
and wonder how he could love me,
a sinner, condemned, unclean. 

CHORUS
How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me! 

VERSE 2
For me it was in the garden
he prayed: “Not my will, but thine.”
He had no tears for his own griefs,
but sweat-drops of blood for mine. 

VERSE 3
In pity angels beheld him,
and came from the world of light
to comfort him in the sorrows
he bore for my soul that night. (CHORUS) 

VERSE 4
He took my sins and my sorrows,
he made them his very own;
he bore the burden on Calvary,
and suffered and died alone. 

VERSE 5
When with the ransomed in glory
his face I at last shall see,
‘twill be my joy through the ages
to sing of his love for me. (CHORUS) 

I Will Wait for You (Psalm 130)

VERSE 1
Out of the depths I cry to You
In darkest places I will call
Incline Your ear to me anew
And hear my cry for mercy, Lord

VERSE 2
Were You to count my sinful ways
How could I come before Your throne
Yet full forgiveness meets my gaze
I stand redeemed by grace alone 

CHORUS 1
I will wait for You
I will wait for You
On Your word, I will rely
I will wait for You
Surely wait for You
Till my soul is satisfied

VERSE 3
So put your hope in God alone
Take courage in His power to save
Completely and forever won
By Christ emerging from the grave (CHORUS 1)

VERSE 4  
Now He has come to make a way
And God Himself has paid the price
That all who trust in Him today
Find healing in His sacrifice (CHORUS 2)

CHORUS 2
I will wait for You
I will wait for You
Through the storm and through the night
I will wait for You
Surely wait for You
For Your love is my delight
