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.

Listen To Our Hearts

Piano Only

With Vocals

Geoff Moore

Verse 1
How do you explain, how do you describe
A love that goes from east to west,
And runs as deep as it is wide?
You know all our hopes,
Lord, You know all our fears,
And words cannot express the love we feel,
But we long for You to hear!

Chorus
[Men] So listen to our hearts!
          [Women] Oh Lord, please listen!

[Men] Hear our spirits sing!
          [Women] And hear us sing!

[Men] A song of praise and hope,
          [Women] A simple song of praise,

[Men] From those You have redeemed.
          [Women] From those You have redeemed

And we will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are,
But words are not enough, to tell You of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

Verse 2
If words could fall like rain
From these lips of mine,
And if I had a thousand years
I would still run out of time.
But if You’ll listen to our hearts,
Every word will say
Thank You for the life,
Thank You for the truth,
Thank You for the way!

Chorus
[Men] So listen to our hearts!
          [Women] Oh Lord, please listen!

[Men] Hear our spirits sing!
          [Women] And hear us sing!

[Men] A song of praise and hope,
          [Women] A simple song of praise,

[Men] From those You have redeemed.
          [Women] From those You have redeemed

And we will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are,
But words are not enough, to tell you of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

Chorus
[Men] So listen to our hearts!
        [Women] Oh Lord, please listen!

[Men] Hear our spirits sing!
         [Women] And hear us sing!

[Men] A song of praise and hope,
         [Women] A simple song of praise,

[Men] From those You have redeemed.
         [Women] From those You have redeemed

And we will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are,
But words are not enough, to tell You of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

But words are not enough, to tell You of our love,
So listen to our hearts.

When This Passing World Is Done

Piano Only

With Vocals

Robert Murray McCheyne, 1837

Verse 1
When this passing world is done,
When has sunk yon glaring sun,
When we stand with Christ in glory,
Looking o’er life’s finished story,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know-
Not till then-how much I owe.

Verse 2
When I hear the wicked call,
On the rocks and hills to fall,
When I see them start and shrink
On the fiery deluge brink,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know-
Not till then-how much I owe.

Verse 3
When I stand before the Throne,
Dressed in beauty not my own,
When I see Thee as Thou art,
Love Thee with unsinning heart,
Then Lord, shall I fully know-
Not till then-how much I owe.

Verse 4
When the praise of Heav’n I hear,
Loud as thunders to the ear,
Loud as many waters’ noise,
Sweet as harp’s melodious voice,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know-
Not till then-how much I owe.

Verse 5
Chosen not for good in me,
Wakened up from wrath to flee,
Hidden in the Savior’s side,
By the Spirit sanctified,
Teach me, Lord, on earth to show,
By my love, how much I owe.

What a Friend We Have in Jesus!

Piano Only

With Vocals

Joseph Scriven, 1855

Verse 1
What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Verse 2
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.

Verse 3
Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield you; you will find a solace there.

Unto Jesus Be All Glory

Piano Only

With Vocals

Kenny Flaspoehler

Verse 1
Unto Jesus be all glory,
Let us worship and adore,
Unto Jesus, our Messiah,
Let our words and voices soar!
Precious Jesus, we are longing,
Just to worship at Your feet.
You are worthy beyond measure,
And Your Name to us is sweet.

Verse 2
Unto Jesus be all glory,
In Your blood the Gospel’s sealed.
You were pierced for our transgressions,
By Your stripes our wounds are healed.
Dearest Jesus, precious Savior,
At the cross You did atone
We were rebels, we were debtors,
Now we stand before Your throne.

Verse 3
Unto Jesus be all glory,
As you live to intercede
Binding up the brokenhearted,
Meeting every single need
Precious Jesus, our Good Shepherd,
Caring always for Your sheep,
You surround us with your favor,
All Your promises to keep.

Verse 4
Unto Jesus be all glory,
Captain of a mighty host,
Soldiers in the fiercest battles,
Fighting to the uttermost
War is raging, but You are reigning,
By Your wise and sovereign hand.
Keep us holy, keep us faithful,
To the Word of Your command.

Psalm 22 (My God, My God)

Piano Only

With Vocals

Based on Psalm 22

Verse 1
My God, my God,
O why Have you forsaken me?
O why are you so far from Giving help
And from my groaning cry?
By day and night, my God, I call;
Your answer still delays.
And yet you are the Holy One
Who dwells in Israel’s praise.

Verse 2
Our fathers put their trust in you;
From you their rescue came.
They begged you and you set them free;
They were not put to shame.
But as for me, I am a worm
And not a man at all.
To men I am despised and base;
Their scornings on me fall.

Verse 3
All those who look at me will
laugh and cast reproach at me.
Their mouths they open wide;
They wag their heads in mockery:
“The Lord was his reliance once;
Now see what God will send.
Yes, let God rise and set him free,
This man that was his friend.”

Verse 4
You took me from my mothers womb
To safety at the breast.
Since birth when I was cast on you,
In you, my God, I rest.
When I proclaim my praise of you,
Then all the church will hear,
And I will pay my vows in full
Where men hold him in fear.

I Asked The Lord That I Might Grow

Piano Only

With Vocals

John Newton 1779

Verse 1
I asked the Lord that I might grow
In faith, and love, and every grace;
Might more of His salvation know,
And seek, more earnestly, His face.

Verse 2
‘Twas He who taught me thus to pray,
And He, I trust, has answered prayer!
But it has been in such a way,
As almost drove me to despair.

Verse 3
I hoped that in some favored hour,
At once He’d answer my request;
And by His love’s constraining pow’r,
Subdue my sins, and give me rest.

Verse 4
Instead of this, He made me feel
The hidden evils of my heart;
And let the angry pow’rs of hell
Assault my soul in every part.

Verse 5
Yea more, with His own hand He seemed
Intent to aggravate my woe;
Crossed all the fair designs I schemed,
Blasted my gourds, and laid me low.

Verse 6
Lord, why is this, I trembling cried,
Wilt Thou pursue Thy worm to death?
“‘Tis in this way, the Lord replied,
I answer prayer for grace and faith.

Verse 7
These inward trials I employ,
From self, and pride, to set thee free;
And break thy schemes of earthly joy,
That thou may’st find thy all in Me.”
