Meekness And Majesty

Graham Kendrick

Verse 1
Meekness and majesty, manhood and deity
In perfect harmony, the Man who is God.
Lord of eternity dwells in humanity,
Kneels in humility and washes our feet.

Verse 2
Father’s pure radiance, perfect in innocence
Yet learns obedience to death on a cross.
Suffering to give us life,
Conquering through sacrifice,
And as they crucify prays Father forgive!

Chorus
O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Verse 3
Wisdom unsearchable, God the invisible,
Love indestructible in frailty appears.
Lord of infinity stooping so tenderly,
Lifts our humanity to the heights of His throne.

Chorus
O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Is He Worthy?

Andrew Peterson,  Ben Shive

Verse 1

[Men] Do you feel the world is broken?
     [Ladies] We do.

[Men] Do you feel the shadows deepen?
      [Ladies] We do.

[Men] But do you know that all the dark won’t
              Stop the light from getting through?
     [Ladies] We do.

[Men] Do you wish that you could
             See it all made new?
     [Ladies] We do.

[Ladies] Is all creation groaning? 
        [Men] It is.

[Ladies] Is a new creation coming?
      [Men] It is.

[Ladies] Is the glory of the Lord to be
               The light within our midst?
      [Men] It is.

[Ladies] Is it good that we remind
                   Ourselves of this?
     [Men] It is.

Chorus
Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave!
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave.

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory,
Is He worthy of this?
He is.

Verse 3

[Men] Does the Father truly love us?

               To dwell again with us?
     [Ladies] He does.

Chorus
Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave!
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
From every people and tribe,
Every nation and tongue,
He has made us a kingdom and priests to God
To reign with the Son!

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of this?

He is! He is!

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?

He is! He is!

He is worthy! He is worthy!
He is!

Highly Exalted

Robin Mark, Paul Baloche

Verse 1
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from your sight
Such was the suffering you bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word
But chose to be silent
Though you did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in you.

Yet by your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names.

Verse 2
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from your sight.
Such was the suffering you bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word,
But chose to be silent
Though you did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in you.

Yet by your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

Jesus, the name above all.

I Hear The Words Of Love

Piano Only

With Vocals

Horatius Bonar
Music from Day’s Psalter

Verse 1
I hear the words of love,
I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty Sacrifice,
And I have peace with God.

Verse 2
’Tis everlasting peace!
Sure as Jehovah’s Name;
’Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
Forevermore the same.

Verse 3
The clouds may go and come,
And storms may sweep my sky—
This blood-sealed friendship changes not;
The Cross is ever nigh.

Verse 4
My love is oft times low,
My joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him remains the same,
No change Jehovah knows.

Verse 5
I change, He changes not,
The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting place,
His truth, not mine, the tie.

Opened my eyes, let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You

Victory in Jesus

E.M. Bartlett

Verse 1
I heard an old, old story how a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning, of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory

Chorus
O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him.
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood

Verse 2
I heard about His healing, of His cleansing pow’r revealing
How he made the lame to walk again and caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, “Dear Jesus, come and heal my broken spirit,”
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.

Chorus
O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him.
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood

Verse 3
I heard about a mansion he has built for me in glory,
And I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing and the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.

Chorus
O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him.
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood


For further encouragement, hear this five-minute clip called, “Jesus Christ Is The King of Glory“.

Rock of Ages

Augustus M. Toplady, 1776

Verse 1
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Cleanse me from its guilt and power.

Verse 2
Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Verse 3
Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the Fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

Verse 4
While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyelids close in death
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

Come You Sinners Poor and Wretched

Joseph Hart, 1759

Verse 1
Come, you sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, joined with pow’r.

Chorus
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Verse 2
Come, you thirsty, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.

Chorus
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Verse 3
Come, you weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and broken by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.

Chorus
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Verse 4
View Him prostrate in the garden;
On the ground your Maker lies.
On the bloody tree behold Him;
Sinner, will this not suffice?

Chorus
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Verse 5
Lo! Th’incarnate God ascended,
Pleads the merit of His blood:
Venture on Him, venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude.

Chorus
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Verse 6
Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.

Chorus
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Go to Dark Gethsemane

James Montgomery, 1820

Verse 1
Go to dark Gethsemane,
Ye that feel the tempter’s power;
Your Redeemer’s conflict see,
Watch with Him one bitter hour,
Turn not from His griefs away;
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

Verse 2
See Him at the judgment hall,
Beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
Learn of Christ to bear the cross.

Verse 3
Calvary’s mournful mountain climb;
There, adoring at His feet,
Mark that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete.
“It is finished!” hear Him cry;
Learn of Jesus Christ to die.

Verse 4
Early hasten to the tomb
Where they laid His breathless clay;
All is solitude and gloom.
Who has taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes;
Savior, teach us so to rise.
