Facing a Task Unfinished

Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty,
Ed Cash and Fionán de Barra

Verse 1
Facing a task unfinished
That drives us to our knees
A need that, undiminished
Rebukes our slothful ease
We, who rejoice to know Thee
Renew before Thy throne
The solemn pledge we owe Thee
To go and make Thee known

Verse 2
Where other lords beside Thee
Hold their unhindered sway
Where forces that defied Thee
Defy Thee still today
With none to heed their crying
For life, and love, and light
Unnumbered souls are dying
And pass into the night

Chorus
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has power to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord.

Verse 3
We bear the torch that flaming
Fell from the hands of those
Who gave their lives proclaiming
That Jesus died and rose
Ours is the same commission
The same glad message ours
Fired by the same ambition
To Thee we yield our powers

Chorus
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has power to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord.

Verse 4
O Father who sustained them
O Spirit who inspired
Savior, whose love constrained them
To toil with zeal untired
From cowardice defend us
From lethargy awake!
Forth on Thine errands send us
To labour for Thy sake

Chorus
We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has power to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord.

We go to all the world
With kingdom hope unfurled
No other name has power to save
But Jesus Christ The Lord

Communion Hymn (Behold the Lamb)

Keith and Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townend

Verse 1
Behold the Lamb who bears our sins away
Slain for us, and we remember
The promise made that all who come in faith
Find forgiveness at the cross.
So we share in this bread of life,
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of peace
Around the table of the King.

Verse 2
The body of our Savior Jesus Christ,
Torn for you. Eat and remember;
The wounds that heal,
The death that brings us life
Paid the price to make us one.
So we share in this bread of life,
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of love
Around the table of the King

Verse 3
The blood that cleanses ev’ry stain of sin
Shed for you, drink and remember,
He drained death’s cup that all may enter in
To receive the life of God.
So we share in this bread of life,
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of grace
Around the table of the King.

Verse 4
And so with thankfulness and faith we rise
To respond and to remember
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ
As His body here on earth.
As we share in His suffering
We proclaim Christ will come again!
And we’ll join in the feast of Heav’n
Around the table of the King.

O Church, Arise

Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Verse 1
O Church arise
And put your armor on;
Hear the call of Christ our Captain;
For now the weak
Can say that they are strong
In the strength that God has given.
With shield of faith and belt of truth
We’ll stand against the devil’s lies;
An army bold whose battle cry is love
Reaching out to those in darkness.

Verse 2
Our call to war
To love the captive soul,
But to rage against the captor;
And with the sword
That makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith and valour.
When faced with trials on every side,
We know the outcome is secure,
And Christ will have
The prize for which He died
An inheritance of nations.

Verse 3
Come see the cross
Where love and mercy meet,
As the Son of God is stricken;
Then see His foes
Lie crushed beneath His feet,
For the Conqueror has risen!
And as the stone is rolled away,
And Christ emerges from the grave,
This victory march continues till the day
Every eye and heart shall see Him.

Verse 4
So Spirit come
Put strength in every stride,
Give grace for every hurdle,
That we may run
With faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful.
As saints of old still line the way,
Retelling triumphs of His grace,
We hear their calls and hunger for the day
When with Christ we stand in glory.

Jesus Draw Me Ever Nearer

Keith Getty and Margaret Becker

Verse 1
Jesus, draw me ever nearer
As I labor through the storm
You have called me to this passage
And I’ll follow though I’m worn

Chorus
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake.

Verse 2
Jesus, guide me through the tempest
Keep my spirit stayed and sure.
When the midnight meets the morning,
Let me love You even more.

Chorus
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake.

Verse 3
May the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go
And at the end of this long passage,
Let me leave them at Your Throne.

Chorus
May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake

He Will Hold Me Fast

Words vv 1-2: Ada Habershon (1861-19168);
Alt. Words vv.1-2, Words v. 3, and Music: Matt Merker

Verse 1
When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

Chorus
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

Verse 2
Those He saves are His delight,
Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in His holy sight,
He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost;
His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost,
He will hold me fast.

Chorus
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

Verse 3
For my life He bled and died,
Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied;
He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life,
He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight
When He comes at last!

Chorus
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

Beneath the Cross (Getty)

Keith & Kristyn Getty

Verse 1
Beneath the cross of Jesus
I find a place to stand,
And wonder at such mercy
That calls me as I am.
For hands that should discard me
Hold wounds which tell me come.
Beneath the cross of Jesus
My unworthy soul is won.

Verse 2
Beneath the cross of Jesus,
His family is my own.
Once strangers chasing selfish dreams;
Now, one through grace alone.
How could I now dishonor
The ones that You have loved?
Beneath the cross of Jesus,
See the children called by God.

Verse 3
Beneath the cross of Jesus
The path before the crown,
We follow in His footsteps
Where promised hope is found.
How great the joy before us
To be His perfect bride.
Beneath the cross of Jesus,
We will gladly live our lives.
