ONCE IN ROYAL DAVID’S CITY

VERSE 1
Once in royal
David’s city
Stood a lowly
cattle shed

Where a mother
laid her baby
In a manger
for His bed

Mary was that
mother mild
Jesus Christ
her little child

VERSE 2
He came down
to earth from heaven
Who is God
and Lord of all

And His shelter
was a stable
And His cradle
was a stall

With the poor
and meek and lowly
Lived on earth
our Savior holy

VERSE 3
Jesus is our
childhood’s pattern
Day by day
like us He grew

He was little
weak and helpless
Tears and smiles
like us He knew

And He feeleth
for our sadness
And He shareth
in our gladness

VERSE 4
And our eyes
at last shall see Him
Through His own
redeeming love

For that child
so dear and gentle
Is our Lord
in heaven above

And He leads
His children on
To the place
where He has gone

Tag
And He leads
His children on
To the place
where He has gone

 

 

IN TENDERNESS

VERSE 1
In tenderness
He sought me
Weary and sick with sin

And on His shoulders
brought me
Back to His fold again

While angels in
His presence sang
Until the courts
of heaven rang

CHORUS
Oh-o-oh the love
that sought me
Oh-o-oh the blood
that bought me

Oh the grace that brought me
to the fold of God
Grace that brought me
to the fold of God

VERSE 2
He died for me
while I was sinning
Needy and poor and blind

He whispered to assure me
“I’ve found thee
thou art Mine”

I never heard
a sweeter voice
It made my aching
heart rejoice

CHORUS
Oh-o-oh the love
that sought me
Oh-o-oh the blood
that bought me

Oh the grace that brought me
to the fold of God
Grace that brought me
to the fold of God

VERSE 3
Upon His grace
I’ll daily ponder
And sing anew His praise

With all adoring wonder
His blessings I retrace

It seems as if eternal days
Are far too short
to sing His praise

CHORUS
Oh-o-oh the love
that sought me
Oh-o-oh the blood
that bought me

Oh the grace that brought me
to the fold of God
Grace that brought me
to the fold of God

CHORUS
Oh-o-oh the love
that sought me
Oh-o-oh the blood
that bought me

Oh the grace that brought me
to the fold of God
Grace that brought me
to the fold of God

 

COME BEHOLD THE WONDROUS MYSTERY

VERSE 1
Come behold the wondrous mystery
In the dawning of the King
He the theme of heaven’s praises
Robed in frail humanity
In our longing, in our darkness
Now the light of life has come
Look to Christ who condescended
Took on flesh to ransom us

VERSE 2
Come behold the wondrous mystery
He the perfect Son of Man
In His living, in His suffering
Never trace nor stain of sin
See the true and better Adam
Come to save the Hell-bound man
Christ the great and sure fulfillment
Of the law; In Him we stand

VERSE 3
Come behold the wondrous mystery
Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners
Hangs the Lamb in victory
See the price of our redemption
See the Father’s plan unfold
Bringing many sons to glory
Grace unmeasured, love untold

VERSE 4
Come behold the wondrous mystery
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him
Praise the Lord, He is alive
What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when He comes

TAG
What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope

Hebrews 4:12-14 – Sam Andres

 

RESPONSE
BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD ABOVE

VERSE 1
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great high Priest whose name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hand
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart

VERSE 2
When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

VERSE 3
Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless Righteousness
The great unchangeable I AM
The King of glory and of grace
One with Himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God
With Christ my Savior and my God

TAG
One with Himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God
With Christ my Savior and my God
