Listen To Our Hearts

Piano Only

With Vocals

Geoff Moore

Verse 1
How do you explain, how do you describe
A love that goes from east to west,
And runs as deep as it is wide?
You know all our hopes,
Lord, You know all our fears,
And words cannot express the love we feel,
But we long for You to hear!

Chorus
[Men] So listen to our hearts!
          [Women] Oh Lord, please listen!

[Men] Hear our spirits sing!
          [Women] And hear us sing!

[Men] A song of praise and hope,
          [Women] A simple song of praise,

[Men] From those You have redeemed.
          [Women] From those You have redeemed

And we will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are,
But words are not enough, to tell You of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

Verse 2
If words could fall like rain
From these lips of mine,
And if I had a thousand years
I would still run out of time.
But if You’ll listen to our hearts,
Every word will say
Thank You for the life,
Thank You for the truth,
Thank You for the way!

Chorus
[Men] So listen to our hearts!
          [Women] Oh Lord, please listen!

[Men] Hear our spirits sing!
          [Women] And hear us sing!

[Men] A song of praise and hope,
          [Women] A simple song of praise,

[Men] From those You have redeemed.
          [Women] From those You have redeemed

And we will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are,
But words are not enough, to tell you of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

Chorus
[Men] So listen to our hearts!
        [Women] Oh Lord, please listen!

[Men] Hear our spirits sing!
         [Women] And hear us sing!

[Men] A song of praise and hope,
         [Women] A simple song of praise,

[Men] From those You have redeemed.
         [Women] From those You have redeemed

And we will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are,
But words are not enough, to tell You of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

But words are not enough, to tell You of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

Whom have I in Heaven but You?
There is none besides You I desire.
Though my heart and flesh become weak
You’re my strength, the portion of my life.

Though my heart may fail, and my flesh pass away,
With these eyes I will behold the Lord.

Lord create a clean heart in me,
And let only what’s from You remain.
If need be, when in trials I am grieved
Let my faith, Lord, be proved genuine.

But Your face is what I long to see.

The Five Solas

Cody Curtis

Chorus
By grace alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.

Verse 1
The Word of God is truth revealed for man to know God’s law;
The standard of reality, the Bible guides in all.
There is no other book divine, no other sacred tome,
The truth of God lies nowhere else but in His Word alone.

Verse 2
Salvation is a gift of God, so may no human boast:
By grace alone have saints been saved and blessed to uttermost!
No, nothing else can save my soul, my sin that can atone,
The sinner, now redeemed by God, is saved by grace alone.

Chorus
By grace alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.
By grace alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.

Verse 3
The works of nat’ral man cannot appease the wrath of God,
Through Christian faith the Savior saves and stays the Father’s rod.
For God could not my sin forgive through merits of my own,
The guilty wretch is justified by God through faith alone.

Verse 4
When first the sin of man appeared, the Lord withdrew His hand;
Thus Christ became a man and died to bridge the awful span;
No other One could mediate between me and God’s throne,
The wayward son, restored to God, finds hope in Christ alone.

Chorus
By grace alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.
By grace alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.

Verse 5
O praise the God who saves the weak, O glorify His name,
Let all creation with one voice His wondrous deeds proclaim!
Who else deserves the laud, the praise? It is not flesh and bone.
May all of life e’er glorify our King, our God, alone!

Chorus
By grace alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.
By grace alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.

Yet Not I, But Through Christ in Me

City Alight
Jonny Robinson, Rich Thompson, Michael Farren

Verse 1
What gift of grace is Jesus, my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh, how strange and divine, I can sing: All is mine!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Verse 2
The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Savior He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley, He will lead
Oh, the night has been won, and I shall overcome
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Verse 3
No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh, the chains are released, I can sing: I am free!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Verse 4
With every breath, I long to follow Jesus
For He has said that He will bring me home
And day by day I know He will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat:
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat:
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

Lead Me To Calvary

Jennie Evelyn Hussey (1921)

Verse 1
King of my life I crown thee now —
Thine shall the glory be;
Lest I forget thy thorn-crowned brow,
Lead me to Calvary.

Chorus
Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget thine agony,
Lest I forget thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

Verse 2
Show me the tomb where thou wast laid,
Tenderly mourned and wept;
Angels in robes of light arrayed
Guarded thee whilst thou slept.

Chorus
Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget thine agony,
Lest I forget thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

Verse 3
Let me like Mary, thru the gloom,
Come with a gift to thee;
Show to me now the empty tomb —
Lead me to Calvary.

Chorus
Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget thine agony,
Lest I forget thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

Verse 4
May I be willing, Lord, to bear
Daily my cross for thee;
Even thy cup of grief to share —
Thou hast borne all for me.

Chorus
Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget thine agony,
Lest I forget thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

All Praise To Him

Sovereign Grace Music
Matt Merker and Bob Kauflin
Based on the hymn,
All Praise to Him Who Built the Hills” by Horatius Bonar

Verse 1
All praise to Him, the God of light
Who formed the mountains by His might,
All praise to Him Who names the stars
That sing His fame in skies afar.
All praise to Him Who reigns in love,
Who guides the galaxies above
Yet bends to hear our every prayer
With sovereign pow’r and tender care.

Verse 2
All praise to Him whose love is seen
In Christ the Son, the Servant King,
Who left behind His glorious throne
To pay the ransom for His own.
All praise to Him Who humbly came
To bear our sorrow, sin, and shame
Who lived to die, Who died to rise
The all-sufficient sacrifice.

***Wait For Key Change***

Verse 3
All praise to Him whose pow’r imparts
The love of God within our hearts
The Spirit of all truth and peace
The fount of joy and holiness.
To Father, Son, and Spirit now,
Our souls we lift, our wills we bow,
To You, the triune God, we raise
With loving hearts our song of praise.

To Father, Son, and Spirit now,
Our souls we lift, our wills we bow
To You, the triune God, we raise,
With loving hearts our song of praise.

Tis Finished! The Messiah Dies

Words: Charles Wesley
Music: John Kelly

Verse 1
‘Tis finished! The Messiah dies,
Cut off for sins, but not His own:
Accomplished is the sacrifice,
The great redeeming work is done.
’Tis finished! all the debt is paid;
Justice divine is satisfied;
The grand and full atonement made;
God for a guilty world hath died.

Verse 2
The veil is rent in Christ alone;
The living way to Heaven is seen;
The middle wall is broken down,
And all mankind may enter in.
The types and figures are fulfilled;
Exacted is the legal pain;
The precious promises are sealed;
The spotless Lamb of God is slain.

Verse 3
The reign of sin and death is o’er,
And all may live from sin set free;
Satan hath lost his mortal power;
’Tis swallowed up in victory.
Saved from the legal curse I am,
My Savior hangs on yonder tree:
See there the meek, expiring Lamb!
’Tis finished! He expires for me.

Verse 4
Accepted in the Well-beloved,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
I see the bar to heaven removed;
And all Thy merits, Lord, are mine.
Death, hell, and sin are now subdued;
All grace is now to sinners given;
And lo, I plead the atoning blood,
And in Thy right I claim Thy Heaven!

Psalm 130 (From The Depths of Woe)

Words: Martin Luther
Music: Christopher Miner

The voice of lamentation;
Lord, turn a gracious ear to me
And hear my supplication;
If Thou iniquities dost mark,
Our secret sins and misdeeds dark,

(Men:) O who shall stand before Thee?
     (Women:) Who shall stand before Thee?
(Men:) O who shall stand before Thee?
    (Women:) Who shall stand before Thee?

Verse 2
To wash away the crimson stain,
Grace, grace alone availeth;
Our works, alas! Are all in vain;
In much the best life faileth;
No man can glory in Thy sight,
All must alike confess Thy might,

Chorus
(Men:) And live alone by mercy
    (women:) Live alone by mercy
(Men:) And live alone by mercy
    (Women:) Live alone by mercy

Upholds my fainting spirit;
His promised mercy is my fort,
My comfort and my sweet support;

What though I wait the live-long night,
Until the dawn appeareth,
My heart still trusteth in His might;
It doubteth not nor feareth;
Do thus, O ye of Israel’s seed,
Ye of the Spirit born indeed;

Chorus
(Men:) And wait ’til God appeareth
    (Women:) Wait ’til God appeareth
(Men:) And wait ’til God appeareth
    (Women) Wait ’til God appeareth

Verse 5
Though great our sins and sore our woes
His grace much more aboundeth;
His helping love no limit knows,
Our upmost need it soundeth.
Our Shepherd good and true is He,
Who will at last His children free

Chorus
(Men:) From all their sin and sorrow
    (Women:) All their sin and sorrow
(Men:) From all their sin and sorrow
    (Women:) All their sin and sorrow
