Worship THROUGH SONG

COME THOU LONG EXPECTED JESUS

VERSE 1
Come Thou long-expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in Thee
Israel’s strength and consolation
Hope of all the earth Thou art
Dear desire of every nation
Joy of every longing heart

VERSE 2
Born Thy people to deliver
Born a child and yet a King
Born to reign forever
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By Thine all sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne

TAG
By Thine all sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne

 

O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

VERSE 1
O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and
dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in the dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears
of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

VERSE 2
For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep
the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And peace to men on earth

VERSE 3
How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven
No ear may hear His coming
But in this world of sin
Where meek souls
will receive Him still
The dear Christ enters in

VERSE 4
O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born in us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Immanuel

 

10,000 REASONS

CHORUS
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

VERSE 1
The sun comes up
it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass
and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing
when the evening comes

CHORUS
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

VERSE 2
You’re rich in love
and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great
and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
for my heart to find

CHORUS
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

VERSE 3
And on that day
when my strength is failing
The end draws near
and my time has come
Still my soul will sing
Your praise unending
Ten thousand years
and then forevermore

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

HIS MERCY IS MORE

VERSE 1
What love could remember
no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing
He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea
without bottom or shore
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

CHORUS
Praise the Lord
His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness
new every morn
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

VERSE 2
What patience would wait
as we constantly roam
What Father, so tender
is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest
the vilest, the poor
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

CHORUS
Praise the Lord
His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness
new every morn
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

VERSE 3
What riches of kindness
He lavished on us
His blood was the payment
His life was the cost
We stood ‘neath a debt
we could never afford
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

CHORUS
Praise the Lord
His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness
new every morn
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

CHORUS
Praise the Lord
His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness
new every morn
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

TAG
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more
Our sins, they are many
His mercy is more

COMMUNION

COME YE SINNERS

VERSE 1
Come ye sinners, poor and needy
Weak and wounded, sick and sore
Jesus ready stands to save you
Full of pity, love and power

VERSE 2
Come ye thirsty, come and welcome
God’s free bounty glorify
True belief and true repentance
Every grace that brings you nigh

VERSE 3
Come ye weary, heavy laden
Lost and ruined by the fall
If you tarry till you’re better
You will never come at all

VERSE 4
I will rise and go to Jesus
He will embrace me in His arms
In the arms of my dear Savior
O there are ten thousand charms
O there are ten thousand charms

VERSE 1
Come ye sinners, poor and needy
Weak and wounded, sick and sore
Jesus ready stands to save you
Full of pity, love and power

 

IT IS FINISHED

VERSE 1
There’s no deed that can redeem us
There’s no right nor magic word
Only by the work of Jesus
Can salvation be secured

CHORUS
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 

CHORUS
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

BRIDGE
Let every sinner rejoice
Hear the dying victor’s cry
Raise up your voice
Singing out through earth and sky

CHORUS
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

CHORUS
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
