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!

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?

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!

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.

Psalm 46:10
King James Version

Be still, and know that I am God:
Be still, and know that I am God:

Be still, and know that I am God.

Be still, and know that I am God:
Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,

Be still, and know,

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.

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.

What Grace is Mine

Kieth and Kristyn Getty
Music: Traditional Irish melody: Londonderry Air
Arranged Rob Mathes

Verse 1
What grace is mine, that He who dwells in endless light
Called through the night to find my distant soul.
And from His scars poured mercy that would plead for me
That I might live and in His Name be known.

Chorus
So I will go wherever He is calling me;
I lose my life to find my life in Him.
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies;
I bow my heart, take up my cross, and follow Him.

Verse 2
What grace is mine, to know His breath alive in me;
beneath His wings my weary soul may soar.
All fear can flee for death’s dark night is overcome;
My Savior lives and reign forever more.

Chorus
So I will go where ever He is calling me;
I lose my life to find my life in Him.
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies;
I bow my heart, take up my cross, and follow Him.

By Faith

Keith and Kristyn Getty

Verse 1
By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation’s grand design,
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness,
Who walk by faith and not by sight.

Verse 2
By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts,
Of a holy city built by God’s own hand,
A place where peace and justice reign.

Chorus
We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

Verse 3
By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave.

Verse 4
By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth.

Chorus
We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

Verse 5
By faith this mountain shall be moved
And the power of the gospel shall prevail,
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His Name.

Chorus
We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

We will stand as children of the promise’
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

Have faith in God, He watches o’er His own;
He cannot fail, He must prevail;

Have faith in God, He watches o’er His own;
He cannot fail, He must prevail;

I’ve Found a Friend, O Such A Friend

James Small

Verse 1
I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend!
He loved me ere I knew Him;
He drew me with the cords of love,
And thus He bound me to Him;
And round my heart still closely
Twine those ties which naught can sever,
For I am His, and He is mine,
Forever and forever.

Verse 2
I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend!
He bled, He died to save me;
And not alone the gift of life,
But His own Self He gave me!
Naught that I have mine own I call,
I’ll hold it for the Giver,
My heart, my strength, my life,
My all are His, and His forever.

Verse 3
I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend!
All pow’r to Him is given,
To guard me on my onward course,
And bring me safe to heaven.
The eternal glories gleam afar,
To nerve my faint endeavor;
So now to watch, to work, to war,
And then to rest forever.

Verse 4
I’ve found a Friend, O such a friend!
So kind and true and tender,
So wise a Counselor and Guide,
So mighty a Defender!
From Him who loves me now so well
What power my soul can sever?
Shall life or death, shall earth or hell?
No! I am His forever.
