Oh! Great Is Our God!
Verse 1 Oh! Great is our God! So we should worship greatly! / No song is too loud! No orchestra too stately To hail the majesty of our King / So lift your voices loud as we sing Verse 2 Oh! Great is our God! So let our songs be endless! So awesome His ways, how could we comprehend them? So we will make it known to our kids / And we will sing about the gracious gifts you give Chorus We will sing your praise and pour forth your fame / We will bless your name Let everyone give thanks, because our God is great! Verse 3 Oh! Great is our God! And we cannot contain it! / We sing from our souls, affected by His greatness His mercy covers all that Heʼs made / Showing His glory and His grace
As Long As I Live (Psalm 63)
Verse 1 Oh God, you are my God / I am seeking you like sunny days in winter months My soul is thirsty for you, my body longs for you / In a dry and weary land, where thereʼs no water PreChorus I have seen you in the sanctuary, / I have seen your power and glory Because your love is so much better than my life / My lips will glorify you Chorus I will praise you as long as I live x4 Verse 2 All day I think of you / In my bed at night, I cannot help but think of you Because you are my help, my soul clings to you / And youʼre the only thing that holds me up
Because Jesus Christ Is Alive
Verse 1 We get tired, we canʼt win We were dead in our sin But thereʼs a hope, a new life The pressureʼs off, cause Jesus Christʼs alive Prechorus So we can rejoice, though weʼre grieved by various trials for a little while ʻcause a genuine faith under testing brings honor and glory to our great King Chorus By Godʼs great mercy we have been born again because Jesus Christ is alive Our living hope is in our inheritance, because Jesus Christ is alive No grip of fear, no sting in death, by His mercy we have been born again because Jesus Christ is alive Verse 2 We donʼt have to bear the load We donʼt have to have control We are free from guilt and shame ʻcause when He rose, he left death in itʼs grave Bridge No grip of fear, no sting in death, because Jesus Christ is alive Weʼre free from guilt, weʼre free from shame, because Jesus Christ is alive Weʼre free to live for Jesusʼ fame, because Jesus Christ is alive
Hail the King
Zach Bolen and Brian Eichelberger Verse 1 We have been justified / By faith through Jesus Christ / It’s only by His grace we stand Once bound by sin and shame / Now slave to righteousness / Our faith perfected by his love Chorus 1 Praise the Savior, he has won! / Our sin defeated, through His blood Now exalted, Jesus reigns / Hail the king, praise His name Verse 2 While we were weak he died / Making us reconciled / To God for all eternal days And even in our fading flesh / Our only hope and rest / Is found in faith that Jesus saves Chorus 2 We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God x3 / We rejoice in the glory of God Bridge Our hope of glory is found in the one who gives / Great joy to sing about the love that he poured out Forever lifted high is our savior Jesus Christ / The gift of God given in love
Where Were You
CAM HUXFORD IV and BRIAN EICHELBERGER Part 1: I said… God, I do not understand this world Everything is dying and broken Why do I see nothing but suffering God, I’m asking could this be your plan Sin has taken hold of this whole land Will you not say anything else to me Part 2: 1. He said. . . Where were you the day that I measured Sunk the base and stretched the line over All the the earth and carved out it’s cornerstone Where were you the day that I spoke and Told the sun to split the night open Called the morning dawn with its light to show 2: Who shut in the ocean with stone doors Marked the reach of tides on those new shores On the day the waves rose and first broke forth Have you seen the springs of that great sea Walked the caverns carved in the black deep Through the gates of darkness there on its floor 3: Have you seen the armory I hold Snow and hail are stacked up in silos For the times of trouble and war and strife Can you raise your voice to the storm cloud Would the thunder answer and ring out Does the lightning ask you where it should strike 4: Who has cleft a channel for torrents Rain to sprout the desert with forests In the wilderness that my hand has filled Can you hunt the prey for young Lions Can you loose the chords of Orion Is this whole world bending beneath your will Outro: I spoke of things I did not understand Things to wonderful for me Although I had no right to ask My God knelt and answered me
It Is Finished
Dustin Kensrue and Brian Eichelberger Verse 1 There’s no deed that can redeem us, There’s no rite, nor magic word Only by the work of Jesus, Can salvation be secured Chorus 1 It is finished! He has done it! Let your weary heart rejoice Our redemption is accomplished Raise a shout with ragged voice And go bravely into battle Knowing he has won the war It is finished, lift your head and weep no more Verse 2 There’s no sacrifice to offer There’s no penance to complete Freely drink of living water Without money come and feast And Let every sinner rejoice! Hear the dying victor’s cry Raise up your voice Sing it out through earth and sky
