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 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.

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 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.

Wonder of Wonders

Mark Webb

Verse 1
Oh the wonder of wonders that God should love me
A sinner so guilty, so vile and unclean
To love the unlovely, how can it be done?
‘Tis only in Jesus, in His Blessed Son.

Verse 2
Long before I ever knew Him, my Lord first knew me.
Before I ever sought Him, my Lord first sought me.
When I was in darkness, His sworn enemy
He purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree.

Chorus
His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail!
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me.

Verse 3
Not that I first did choose Him, for that could not be
Still this heart would refuse Him had He left it to me
I’d still fight the battle that no man can win
I’d still bar the heart’s door that letteth Him in.

Chorus
His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail!
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me.

His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail!
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me.

Whate’er My God Ordains Is Right

Samuel Rodigast, 1675

Verse 1
Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Holy His will abideth;
I will be still whate’er He does,
And follow where He guideth:
He is my God; Though dark my road,
He holds me that I shall not fall:
Wherefore to Him I leave it all.

Verse 2
Whate’er my God ordains is right:
He never will deceive me;
He leads me by the proper path;
I know He will not leave me:
I take, content, what He hath sent;
His hand can turn my griefs away,
And patiently I wait His day.

Verse 3
Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Though now this cup, in drinking,
May bitter seem to my faint heart,
I take it, all unshrinking:
My God is true; each morn anew
Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
And pain and sorrow shall depart.

Verse 4
Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Here shall my stand be taken;
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine,
Yet I am not forsaken;
My Father’s care is round me there;
He holds me that I shall not fall:
And so to Him I leave it all.
