Behold Our God

Ryan, Jonathan, Meghan, and Stephen Altrogge

Verse 1
Who has held the oceans in His hands?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at His voice.
All creation rises to rejoice.

Chorus
Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come let us adore Him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare.
Come let us adore Him!

Verse 2
Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?

Chorus
Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come let us adore Him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare.
Come let us adore Him!

Verse 3
Who has felt the nails upon His hands,
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave.
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign!

Chorus
Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come let us adore Him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare.
Come let us adore Him!

Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come let us adore Him!
Behold our King, nothing can compare.
Come let us adore Him!

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!

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.

I Will Glory in My Redeemer

Steve and Vicki Cook, 2001

Verse 1
I will glory in my Redeemer
Whose priceless blood has ransomed me
Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails
And hung Him on that judgment tree
I will glory in my Redeemer
Who crushed the power of sin and death
My only Savior before the Holy Judge
The Lamb Who is my Righteousness
The Lamb Who is my Righteousness

Verse 2
I will glory in my Redeemer
My life He bought, my love He owns
I have no longings for another
I’m satisfied in Him alone
I will glory in my Redeemer
His faithfulness my standing place
Though foes are mighty and rush upon me
My feet are firm, held by His grace
My feet are firm, held by His grace

Verse 3
I will glory in my Redeemer
Who carries me on eagle’s wings
He crowns my life with lovingkindness
His triumph song I’ll ever sing
I will glory in my Redeemer
Who waits for me at gates of gold
And when He calls me, it will be paradise
His face forever to behold
His face forever to behold

Gladly Would I Leave Behind Me

Ann Griffiths (1805) and Doug Plank (2012)

Verse 1
Gladly would I leave behind me all the pleasure I have known
To pursue surpassing treasures at the throne of God the Son.
Worthy of unending worship, love, and loveliness is He!
By His precious death were millions from the jaws of death set free.

Verse 2
Gladly would I give to Jesus all affection, everything,
For the washing of His mercy makes my ransomed heart to sing.
“Holy, holy!” is the chorus rising up from those who see
Christ exalted, bright, and burning, full of power and purity.

Chorus
Where else can I go?
Jesus, You’re the One that I was made to know.
What else can I do?
Jesus, You’re my all; I gladly run to You.

Verse 3
Gladly would I flee temptations, for their troubles fill my life,
Turn and seek my God and Savior, for His goodness satisfies.
Earthly treasures all are passing, thieves break in and rust destroys,
But in God are awesome splendor, love, and everlasting joys.

Chorus
Where else can I go?
Jesus, You’re the One that I was made to know.
What else can I do?
Jesus, You’re my all; I gladly run to You.

Verse 4
Gladly would I give to Jesus all affection, everything,
For the washing of His mercy makes my ransomed heart to sing.
