Lord, From Sorrows Deep I call

Matt Papa and Matt Boswell
Inspired by Psalm 42

Verse 1
Lord, from sorrows deep I call,
When my hope is shaken.
Torn and ruined from the fall,
Hear my desperation!
For so long I’ve pled and prayed!
God, come to my rescue!
Even so the thorn remains.
Still my heart will praise You.

Verse 2
Storms within my troubled soul,
Questions without answers.
On my faith these billows roll,
God, be now my shelter.
Why are you cast down my soul?
Hope in Him who saves you!
When the fires have all grown cold,
Cause this heart to praise You!

Chorus
O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

Verse 3
Should my life be torn from me,
Every worldly pleasure.
When all I possess is grief,
God, be then my treasure.
Be my vision in the night!
Be my hope and refuge.
Till my faith is turned to sight,
Lord, my heart will praise You!

Chorus
O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

O, my soul, put your hope in God!
My help, my Rock, I will praise Him!
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm!
You’re still my God, my salvation!

Jesus Shall Reign

Isaac Watts, 1719
Inspired by Psalm 72

Verse 1
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Does its successive journeys run,
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
‘Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

Verse 2
Behold the nations great with sin,
Numbers untold that He will win.
From east to west the peoples meet
To bend in worship at His feet.

Verse 3
To Him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown his head.
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.

Verse 4
Great God, whose universal sway
The known and unknown worlds obey,
Now give the kingdom to Thy Son
Extend His power, exalt His throne.

Verse 5
As rain on meadows newly mown,
So shall He send His influence down;
His grace on fainting souls distills,
Like heav’nly dew on thirsty hills.

Verse 6
The heathen lands, that lie beneath
The shades of overspreading death,
Revive at His first dawning light
And deserts blossom at the sight.

My Worth Is Not In What I Own

By Keith & Kristyn Getty, and Graham Kendrick

Verse 1
My worth is not in what I own,
Not in the strength of flesh and bone,
But in the costly wounds of love
At the cross.

Verse 2
My worth is not in skill or name,
In win or lose, in pride or shame,
But in the blood of Christ that flowed
At the cross.

Chorus
I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest Treasure,
Wellspring of my soul!
I will trust in Him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

Verse 3
As summer flowers we fade and die,
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by,
But life eternal calls to us
At the cross.

Verse 4
I will not boast in wealth or might,
Or human wisdom’s fleeting light,
But I will boast in knowing Christ
At the cross.

Chorus
I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest Treasure,
Wellspring of my soul!
I will trust in Him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

Verse 5
Two wonders here that I confess,
My worth and my unworthiness.
My value fixed – my ransom paid,
At the cross.

Chorus
I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest Treasure,
Wellspring of my soul
I will trust in Him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest Treasure,
Wellspring of my soul!
I will trust in Him, no other.
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

I Stand in Awe

Mark Altrogge

Verse 1
You are beautiful beyond description,
Too marvelous for words,
Too wonderful for comprehension,
Like nothing ever seen or heard.
Who can grasp Your infinite wisdom?
Who can fathom the depth of Your love?
You are beautiful beyond description,
Majesty, enthroned above!

Chorus
And I stand, I stand in awe of You!
I stand, I stand in awe of You!
Holy God, to whom all praise is due,
I stand in awe of You!

Verse 2
You are beautiful beyond description,
Yet God crushed You for my sin,
In agony and deep affliction,
Cut off that I might enter in.
Who can grasp such tender compassion?
Who can fathom this mercy so free?
You are beautiful beyond description,
Lamb of God who died for me!

Chorus
And I stand, I stand in awe of You!
I stand, I stand in awe of You!
Holy God, to whom all praise is due,
I stand in awe of You!

And I stand, I stand in awe of You!
I stand, I stand in awe of You!
Holy God, to whom all praise is due,
I stand in awe of You,
I stand in awe of You!

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.

Days of Elijah

Robin Mark

Verse 1
These are the days of Elijah,
Declaring the word of the Lord:
And these are the days of Your servant Moses,
Righteousness being restored.
And though these are days of great trial,
Of famine and darkness and sword,
Still, we are the voice in the desert crying
‘Prepare ye the way of the Lord!’

Chorus
Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

Verse 2
These are the days of Ezekiel,
The dry bones becoming as flesh.
And these are the days of Your servant David,
Rebuilding a temple of praise.
These are the days of the harvest,
The fields are as white in Your world!
And we are the laborers in Your vineyard,
Declaring the word of the Lord!

Chorus
Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

Bridge
There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah.
There is no God like Jehovah!

There is no God like Jehovah!

**Key Change**

Chorus
Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet call!
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes!

For whom He comes leaping over mountains and heights
How beautiful in light she stands
Adorned for her Husband, who says “Here I am!”

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.
