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!

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.
