Every Promise of Your Word

Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

Verse 1
From the breaking of the dawn
To the setting of the sun,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
Words of power, strong to save,
That will never pass away,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
For Your covenant is sure,
And on this I am secure
I can stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 2
When I stumble and I sin,
Condemnation pressing in,
I will stand on every promise of Your Word.
You are faithful to forgive
That in freedom I might live,
So I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Guilt to innocence restored,
You remember sins no more
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 3
When I’m faced with anguished choice,
I will listen for Your voice,
And I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.
Through this dark and troubled land
You will guide me with Your hand
As I stand on every promise of Your Word.
And You’ve promised to complete
Every work begun in me
So I’ll stand on every promise of Your Word.

Verse 4
Hope that lifts me from despair,
Love that casts out every fear,
As I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Not forsaken, not alone,
For the Comforter has come,
And I stand on every promise of Your Word.
Grace sufficient, grace for me,
Grace for all who will believe
We will stand on every promise of Your Word.

Come All Christians Be Committed

Eva B. Lloyd, 1966

Verse 1
Come, all Christians, be committed
To the service of the Lord.
Make your lives for Him more fitted;
Tune your hearts with one accord.
Come into His courts with gladness;
Each his sacred vows renew.
Turn away from sin and sadness;
Be transformed with life anew.

Verse 2
Of your time and talents give Him-
They are gifts from God above
To be used by Christians freely
To proclaim His wondrous love.
Come again to serve the Savior;
Tithes and off’rings with you bring.
In your work, with Him find favor,
And with joy His praises sing.

Verse 3
God’s command to love each other
Is required of ev’ry one.
Showing mercy to each other
Mirrors His redeeming Son.
In compassion He has given
Of His love that is divine.
On the cross sins were forgiven;
Joy and peace are fully thine.

Verse 4
Come in praise and adoration,
All who on Christ’s name believe.
Worship Him with consecration;
Grace and love will you receive.
For His grace give Him the glory,
For the Spirit and the Word;
And repeat the Gospel story
Till the world His Name has heard.

Though none go with me, still I will follow,
Though none go with me, still I will follow,

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.

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.

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.

Trust and Obey

James H. Sammis, 1919

Verse 1
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Verse 2
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Verse 3
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Verse 4
But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Verse 5
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us

Words by Dorothy A. Thrupp
Music by W. B. Bradbury

Verse 1
Savior, like a shepherd lead us;
Much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us,
For our use Thy folds prepare:
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are,
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

Verse 2
We are Thine, do Thou befriend us;
Be the Guardian of our way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us,
Seek us when we go astray.
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Hear us when we praise and pray,
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Hear us when we praise and pray.

Verse 3
Thou hast promised to receive us,
Poor and sinful though we be;
Thou hast mercy to relieve us,
Grace to cleanse, and make us free:
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Early let us turn to Thee
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Early let us turn to Thee.

Verse 4
Early let us seek Thy favor;
Early let us do Thy will;
Gracious Lord, our only Savior,
With Thyself our bosoms fill:
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still,
Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still.

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

William Williams, 1745

Verse 1
Guide me O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand.
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven,
Feed me till I want no more;
Feed me till I want no more.

Verse 2
Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield;
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.

Verse 3
Lord, I trust Thy mighty power,
Wondrous are Thy works of might;
Thou hast saved and freed helpless sinners,
“It is finished” ends our night:
Thou didst conquer, Thou didst conquer,
Sin, and Satan and the grave,
Sin, and Satan and the grave.

Verse 4
When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of deaths, and hell’s destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee;
I will ever give to Thee.

Verse 5
Thinking on my Glorious Savior,
Thinking on my heav’nly home,
Fills my soul with hungry longings:
Come, my Jesus, quickly come;
Vanity is all I see;
Lord, I long to be with Thee!
Lord, I long to be with Thee!
