Fairest Lord Jesus

Munster Gesangbuch, 1677
[Key: B]

Verse 1
Fairest Lord Jesus,
Ruler of all nature,
Son of God and Son of Man,
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,
Thou, my soul’s Glory, Joy and Crown.

Verse 2
Fair are the meadows,
Fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

Verse 3
Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast.

Verse 4
All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously, Jesus, is found in Thee;
None can be nearer, fairer or dearer,
Than Thou, my Savior, art to me.

Verse 5
Beautiful Savior!
Lord of the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.

Psalm 46 (Lord of Hosts)

Shane & Shane
(Third verse added by GCC)
[Key: Gm]

Verse 1
O come, behold the works of God
The nations at His feet
He breaks the bow and bends the spear
And tells the wars to cease
O, Mighty One of Israel
You are on our side
We walk by faith in
God Who burns the chariots with fire

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?

Verse 2
O, God of Jacob, fierce and great
You lift Your voice to speak.
The earth, it bows and all the mountains
Move into the sea.
O, Lord, You know the hearts of men
And still You let them live.
O, God, Who makes the mountains melt
Come wrestle us and win!

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?

Verse 3
Our God, He is the Lord Most High
Our refuge and our strength
A very present help in times of trouble, our defense.
He said, “Be still and know that I am God and I am near,
Exalted in the nations” Therefore we will have no fear!

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?

Bridge
Though the oceans roar
You are the Lord of all
The One Who calms the wind and waves
And makes my heart be still
Though the earth gives way
The mountains move into the sea
The nations rage
I know my God is in control.

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?

Our Sovereign God

Tom Pennington
[Key: Ab]

Verse 1
Our Sovereign God by His own word
Sustains this world and reigns as Lord.
No angel, demon, sinful man can change
His course, restrain His hand.
O sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;
Your wisdom, goodness we adore!
We bow our hearts before Your throne;
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

Verse 2
When the fullness of the time had come,
God sent His own Beloved Son.
To keep God’s law, live in our place,
To bear our sin, guilt and disgrace.
Dead in our sin, estranged from God,
We fled as rebels from His love.
In sovereign grace He made us sons,
And saved us from the wrath to come,
And saved us from the wrath to come.

Verse 3
Before our birth He planned our days,
Laid out our course, ordained our ways.
The moments of our lives He weaves
So all the glory He receives.
To those He loved before all time,
To all He called, and grace renewed,
He cannot lie; His word is true,
He makes all things to work for good,
He makes all things to work for good.

Verse 4
He has written history’s final page
His Son’s return will end this age.
The Lamb will come in glorious might,
Take back His world and end it’s night.
How deep the wisdom of our God,
Unknown, unfathomed are His ways.
None counsels Him or knows His mind.
We bow before Him all our days,
We bow before Him all our days

O Sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;
Your wisdom, goodness we adore!
We bow our hearts before Your throne;
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,
Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

My Lord, I Did Not Choose You

Words: Josiah Conder
Additional words and music: Benjamin Brainard

Verse 1
My Lord, I did not choose You,
For that could never be;
My heart would still refuse You,
Had You not chosen me.
You took the sin that stained me,
You cleansed me, made me new;
Of old You have ordained me,
That I should live in You.

Chorus
For Christ my All, my Great Reward
Adorns my life forevermore!
Nothing can change now, who I am,
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man!
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man.

Verse 2
Unless Your grace had called me
And taught my op’ning mind,
The world would have enthralled me,
To heav’nly glories blind.
My heart knows none above You;
for Your rich grace I thirst;
I know that if I love You,
You must have loved me first.

Chorus
For Christ my All, my Great Reward
Adorns my life forevermore!
Nothing can change now, who I am,
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man!
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man.

Verse 3
Unless Your Spirit claimed me;
I’d still be bound in sin
Yet Christ alone has saved me
And now I’m found in Him.
And when I stand in glory
And faith gives way to sight
Your joy will crown the chosen
In everlasting light!

Chorus
For Christ my All, my Great Reward
Adorns my life forevermore!
Nothing can change now, who I am,
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man!
I’m in Christ, the Hope of man.
