CHRIST OUR HOPE IN LIFE AND DEATH

VERSE 1
What is our hope in life and death?
Christ alone, Christ alone
What is our only confidence?
That our souls to him belong
Who holds our days within his hand?
What comes, apart from his command?
And what will keep us to the end?
The love of Christ in which we stand

CHORUS
O sing hallelujah
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope
in life and death

VERSE 2
What truth can calm the troubled soul?
God is good, God is good
Where is his grace and goodness known?
In our great Redeemer’s blood
Who holds our faith when fears arise?
Who stands above the stormy trial?
Who sends the waves that bring us nigh
Unto the shore, the rock of Christ?

CHORUS
O sing hallelujah
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope
in life and death

VERSE 3
Unto the grave what shall we sing?
Christ, he lives, Christ, he lives
And what reward will heaven bring?
Everlasting life with him
There we will rise to meet the Lord
Then sin and death will be destroyed
And we will feast in endless joy
When Christ is ours forevermore

CHORUS
O sing hallelujah
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope
in life and death

HERE IS LOVE

VERSE 1
Here is love vast as the ocean
Loving-kindness as the flood
When the Prince of life our ransom
Shed for us His precious blood
Who His love will not remember
Who can cease to sing His praise
He can never be forgotten
Throughout heaven’s eternal days

VERSE 2
On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide
Grace and love like mighty rivers
Poured incessant from above
And heaven’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love

CHORUS
So, Jesus shed abroad
Your love to human hearts
I look with hope to Thee
And will not be ashamed

VERSE 3
Let me, all Your love accepting
Love You, ever all my days
Let me seek Your kingdom only
And my life be to Your praise
You alone shall be my glory
Nothing in the world I see
You have cleansed and sanctified me
You Yourself have set me free

CHORUS
So, Jesus shed abroad
Your love to human hearts
I look with hope to Thee
And will not be ashamed

VERSE 4
In Your truth You still direct me
By Your spirit through Your word
And Your grace my need is meeting
As I trust in You my Lord
Of Your fullness You are pouring
Your great love and power on me
Without measure full and boundless
Drawing out my heart to Thee

CHORUS
So, Jesus shed abroad
Your love to human hearts
I look with hope to Thee
And will not be ashamed

CHORUS
So, Jesus shed abroad
Your love to human hearts
I look with hope to Thee
And will not be ashamed

CHORUS
So, Jesus shed abroad
Your love to human hearts
I look with hope to Thee
And will not be ashamed

MAN OF SORROWS

VERSE 1
Man of sorrows, Lamb of God
By His own betrayed
The sin of man and wrath of God
Has been on Jesus laid

Beaten, mocked, and scorned
Bowing to the Father’s will
He took a crown of thorns

Oh, that rugged cross
My salvation
Where Your love
poured out over me
Now my soul cries out
Hallelujah
Praise and honor unto Thee

Sent of heaven, God’s own Son
To purchase and redeem
And reconcile the very ones
Who nailed Him to that tree

My salvation
Where Your love
poured out over me
Now my soul cries out
Hallelujah
Praise and honor unto Thee

Now my debt is paid
It is paid in full
By the precious blood
That my Jesus spilled
Now the curse of sin
Has no hold on me
Whom the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
