Give To Our God Immortal Praise

Isaac Watts, 1719

Verse 1
Give to our God immortal praise;
Mercy and truth are all His ways:
Wonders of grace to God belong;
Repeat His mercies in your song.

Verse 2
Give to the Lord of Lords renown;
The King of Kings with glory crown:
His mercies ever shall endure,
When lords and kings are known no more.

Verse 3
He built the earth, He spread the sky,
And fixed the starry lights on high:
Wonders of grace to God belong;
Repeat His mercies in your song.

Verse 4
He fills the sun with morning light;
He bids the moon direct the night:
His mercies ever shall endure,
When suns and moons shall shine no more.

Verse 5
He sent His Son with pow’r to save
From guilt and darkness and the grave:
Wonders of grace to God belong;
Repeat His mercies in your song.

Verse 6
Through this vain world he guides our feet,
And leads us to his heav’nly seat:
His mercies ever shall endure,
When this vain world shall be no more.

Christ Our Hope in Life and Death

Keith Getty, Matt Boswell, Jordan Kauflin, Matt Merker & Matt Papa

Verse 1
What is our hope in life and death?
Christ alone, Christ alone.
What is our only confidence?
That our souls to Him belong.

Who holds our days within His hand?
What comes, apart from His command?
And what will keep us to the end?
The love of Christ, in which we stand.

Chorus
O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

Verse 2
What truth can calm the troubled soul?
God is good, God is good.
Where is His grace and goodness known?
In our great Redeemer’s blood.

Who holds our faith when fears arise?
Who stands above the stormy trial?
Who sends the waves that bring us nigh
Unto the shore, the rock of Christ?

Chorus
O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

Verse 3
Unto the grave, what shall we sing?
“Christ, He lives; Christ, He lives!”
And what reward will heaven bring?
Everlasting life with Him.

There we will rise to meet the Lord,
Then sin and death will be destroyed,
And we will feast in endless joy,
When Christ is ours forevermore.

Chorus
O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

O sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
