The Sing Team – Oh! Great is Our God!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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:
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

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

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

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

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
