That we may be His Bride…

For whom He comes leaping over mountains and heights
How beautiful in light she stands
Adorned for her Husband, who says “Here I am!”

I Hear the Words of Love

Piano Only

With Vocals

Horatius Bonar
Music from Day’s Psalter
[Key: Eb]

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.

When This Passing World is Done

Piano Only

With Vocals

Robert Murray McCheyne, 1837
[Key: Eb]

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.

Tis Finished! The Messiah Dies

Piano Only

With Vocals

Words: Charles Wesley
Music: John Kelly

[Key: F]

Verse 1
‘Tis finished! The Messiah dies,
Cut off for sins, but not His own:
Accomplished is the sacrifice,
The great redeeming work is done!
’Tis finished! All the debt is paid;
Justice divine is satisfied;
The grand and full atonement made;
God for a guilty world hath died.

Verse 2
The veil is rent in Christ alone;
The living way to Heaven is seen;
The middle wall is broken down,
And all mankind may enter in.
The types and figures are fulfilled;
Exacted is the legal pain;
The precious promises are sealed;
The spotless Lamb of God is slain.

Verse 3
The reign of sin and death is o’er,
And all may live from sin set free;
Satan hath lost his mortal power;
’Tis swallowed up in victory!
Saved from the legal curse I am,
My Savior hangs on yonder tree:
See there the meek, expiring Lamb!
’Tis finished! He expires for me.

Verse 4
Accepted in the Well-beloved,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
I see the bar to heaven removed;
And all Thy merits, Lord, are mine!
Death, hell, and sin are now subdued;
All grace is now to sinners given;
And lo, I plead the atoning blood,
And in Thy right I claim Thy Heaven!

Wonder of Wonders

Mark Webb
[Key: A]

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.

Unto Jesus Be All Glory

Piano Only

With Vocals

Kenny Flaspoehler
[Key: C]

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
Music: Irish Melody- Kingsfold
[Key: Db Minor]

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 mother’s 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.

Not What My Hands Have Done

Piano Only

With Vocals

Horatius Bonar, 1861
[Key: Bb]

Verse 1
Not what my hands have done
Can save my guilty soul;
Not what my toiling flesh has borne
Can make my spirit whole
Not what I feel or do
Can give me peace with God;
Not all my prayers and sighs and tears
Can bear my awful load.

Verse 2
Thy work alone, O Christ,
Can ease this weight of sin;
Thy blood alone, O Lamb of God
Can give me peace within.
Thy love to me, O God,
Not mine, O Lord, to Thee,
Can rid me of this dark unrest,
And set my spirit free.

Verse 3
Thy grace alone, O God,
To me can pardon speak;
Thy power alone, O Son of God,
Can this sore bondage break.
No other work, save Thine,
No other blood will do;
No strength, save that which is divine,
Can bear me safely through

Verse 4
I bless the Christ of God;
I rest on love divine;
And with unfaltering lip and heart,
I call this Savior mine.
His cross dispels each doubt;
I bury in His tomb
Each thought of unbelief and fear
Each lingering shade of gloom.

Verse 5
I praise the God of grace;
I trust His truth and might;
He calls me His, I call Him mine,
My God, my joy, my light.
‘Tis He who saveth me,
And freely pardon gives;
I love because He loveth me,
I live because He lives.
