I Sought The Lord and Afterward I Knew

Jean Ingelow, 1878

Verse 1
I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew
He moved my soul to seek him, seeking me.
It was not I that found, O Savior true,
No, I was found of thee.

Verse 2
Thou didst reach forth thy hand and mine enfold,
I walked and sank not on the storm-vexed sea.
‘Twas not so much that I on thee took hold
As thou, dear Lord, on me.

Verse 3
I find, I walk, I love, but, oh, the whole
Of love is but my answer, Lord, to thee!
For thou wert long beforehand with my soul,
Always thou lovedst me.

Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus

Charles Wesley, 1744

Verse 1
Come, thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Let us find our rest in thee.
Israel’s strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of ev’ry nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Verse 2
Joy to those who long to see Thee
Day-spring from on high, appear.
Come, Thou promised Rod of Jesse,
Of Thy birth, we long to hear!
O’er the hills the angels singing
News, glad tidings of a birth;
“Go to Him your praises bringing
Christ the Lord has come to earth!”

Verse 3
Come to earth to taste our sadness,
He whose glories knew no end.
By His life He brings us gladness,
Our redeemer, Shepherd, Friend.
Leaving riches without number,
Born within a cattle stall;
This the everlasting wonder,
Christ was born the Lord of all.

Verse 4
Born thy people to deliver,
Born a child, and yet a King,
Born to reign in us for ever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By thine all-sufficient merit
Raise us to thy glorious throne.

Oh, Rejoice in The Lord

By Ron Hamilton

Verse 1
God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servant and molding a man.
Give thanks to the LORD though your testing seems long;
In darkness He giveth a song.

Chorus
O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried and purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

Verse 2
I could not see through the shadows ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.

Chorus
O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried and purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

Verse 3
Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.

Chorus
O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried and purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

The Gospel Song

Sovereign Grace Music
Bob Kauflin and Drew Jones

Holy God in love became
Perfect man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin
By His death I live again.

Holy God in love became
Perfect man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin
By His death I live again.

I Hear The Words Of Love

Piano Only

With Vocals

Horatius Bonar
Music from Day’s Psalter

Verse 1
I hear the words of love,
I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty Sacrifice,
And I have peace with God.

Verse 2
’Tis everlasting peace!
Sure as Jehovah’s Name;
’Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
Forevermore the same.

Verse 3
The clouds may go and come,
And storms may sweep my sky—
This blood-sealed friendship changes not;
The Cross is ever nigh.

Verse 4
My love is oft times low,
My joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him remains the same,
No change Jehovah knows.

Verse 5
I change, He changes not,
The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting place,
His truth, not mine, the tie.

Every Promise of Your Word

Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Verse 1
From the breaking of the dawn
To the setting of the sun,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
Words of power, strong to save,
That will never pass away,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
For Your covenant is sure,
And on this I am secure
I can stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 2
When I stumble and I sin,
Condemnation pressing in,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
You are faithful to forgive
That in freedom I might live,
So I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Guilt to innocence restored,
You remember sins no more
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 3
When I’m faced with anguished choice,
I will listen for Your voice,
And I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.
Through this dark and troubled land
You will guide me with Your hand
As I stand on every promise of Your Word.
And You’ve promised to complete
Every work begun in me
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 4
Hope that lifts me from despair,
Love that casts out every fear,
As I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Not forsaken, not alone,
For the Comforter has come,
And I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Grace sufficient, grace for me,
Grace for all who will believe
We will stand on every promise of Your Word.

O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer

Sovereign Grace Music
Nathan Stiff

Verse 1
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer
Greatest treasure of my longing soul
My God, like You there is no other
True delight is found in You alone
Your grace, a well too deep to fathom
Your love exceeds the heavens’ reach
Your truth, a fount of perfect wisdom
My highest good and my unending need

Verse 2
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer
Strong defender of my weary heart
My sword to fight the cruel deceiver
And my shield against his hateful darts
My song when enemies surround me
My hope when tides of sorrow rise
My joy when trials are abounding
Your faithfulness, my refuge in the night

Verse 3
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer
Gracious Savior of my ruined life
My guilt and cross laid on Your shoulders
In my place you suffered bled and died
You rose! the grave and death are conquered
You broke my bonds of sin and shame
You rose! the grave and death are conquered
You broke my bonds of sin and shame
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer
May all my days bring glory to Your Name
May all my days bring glory to Your Name
