Man of Sorrows
No Longer Slaves
Living Hope

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

Verse 2

Silent as He stood accused
Beaten mocked and scorned
Bowing to the Father’s will
He took a crown of thorns

Chorus

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

Verse 3

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

Bridge

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

Verse 4

See the stone is rolled away
Behold the empty tomb
Hallelujah God be praised
He’s risen from the grave

(back to top)

No Longer Slaves

Verse 1

You unravel me with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance from my enemies
Till all my fears are gone

Chorus

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

Verse 2

From my Mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again into Your family
Your blood flows through my veins

Bridge

You split the sea so I could walk right through it
My fears were drowned in perfect love
You rescued me so I could stand and sing
I am a child of God

(back to top)

Living Hope

Verse 1

How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished the end is written
Jesus Christ my living hope

Verse 2

Who could imagine so great a mercy
What heart could fathom such boundless grace
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken I am forgiven
The King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior I’m Yours forever
Jesus Christ my living hope

Chorus

Hallelujah praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ my living hope

Verse 3

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
(REPEAT)
Jesus Yours is the victory whoa

Ending

Jesus Christ my living hope
Oh God You are my living hope

You Are My All In All
I Will Stand
I Will Lift My Eyes

Highlands (Song Of Ascent)

Verse 1

O how high would I climb mountains
If the mountains were where You hide
O how far I’d scale the valleys
If You graced the other side

Verse 2

O how long have I chased rivers
From lowly seas to where they rise
Against the rush of grace descending
From the source of its supply

Pre-Chorus

‘Cause in the highlands and the heartache
You’re neither more or less inclined
I would search and stop at nothing
You’re just not that hard to find

Chorus

Oh (So) I will praise You on the mountain
(And) I will praise You
When the mountain’s in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are
So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray
(‘Cause) You’re the heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same

Verse 3

O how far beneath Your glory
Does Your kindness extend the path
From where Your feet rest on the sunrise
To where You sweep the sinner’s past

Verse 4

And O how fast would You come running
If just to shadow me through the night
Trace my steps through all my failure
And walk me out the other side

Pre-Chorus

For who could dare ascend that mountain
That valleyed hill called Calvary
But for the One I call Good Shepherd
Who like a lamb was slain for me

Bridge

Whatever I walk through
Wherever I am
Your Name can move mountains
Wherever I stand
And if ever I walk through
The valley of death
I’ll sing through the shadows
My song of ascent

Pre-Chorus

From the gravest of all valleys
Come the pastures we call grace
A mighty river flowing upwards
From a deep but empty grave

(back to top)

You Are My All In All

Verse 1

You are my strength
When I am weak
You are the treasure
That I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jew’l
Lord to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

Chorus

Jesus Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Verse 2

Taking my sin
My cross my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

(back to top)

I Will Stand

Verse 1

You saved me from my destruction
You turned my feet from death
You lifted me with Your kindness
You filled me with Your breath
How can I thank You
What can I bring

Chorus

I will stand and worship You
For ev’rything You are to me
I will lift my voice in praise
For all the wonders You display
I will stand I will stand and worship You

Verse 2

You draw me with tender mercies
You hold me in Your grace
So I will fall down in rev’rence
At the myst’ry of Your ways
So how can I thank You
What can I bring

Bridge

In the middle of the congregation
I will lift my voice to say that You are good
And in the midst of ev’ry situation
I will make this declaration
You are good yeah yeah

(back to top)

I Will Lift My Eyes

Verse 1

God my God I cry out
Your beloved needs You now
God be near calm my fear
And take my doubt

Pre-Chorus

Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in

Chorus

I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can’t climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
Of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
Of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes lift my eyes
To You

Verse 2

God my God let mercy sing
Her melody over me
God right here all I bring
Is all of me

Bridge

‘Cause You are and You were
And You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
‘Cause You fashioned the earth
And You hold it together God
So hold me now

Ending

I will lift my eyes
Lift my eyes to You
God my God I cry out
Your beloved needs You now

Give Me Faith
Goodness Of God
Lead Me To The Cross
Yet Not I But Thru Christ In Me

Give Me Faith

Verse 1

I need You to soften my heart
And break me apart
I need You to open my eyes
To see that You’re shaping my life

Pre-Chorus

All I am
I surrender

Chorus

Give me faith to trust what You say
That You’re good and Your love is great
I’m broken inside I give You my life

Verse 2

I need You to soften my heart
And break me apart
I need You to pierce through the dark
And cleanse every part of me

Bridge

‘Cause I may be weak
But Your Spirit’s strong in me
My flesh may fail
My God You never will

(back to top)

Goodness Of God

Verse 1

I love You Lord
Oh Your mercy never fails me
All my days
I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
I will sing of the goodness of God

Chorus

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

Verse 2

I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest night
You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a father
I’ve known You as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

Bridge

Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
With my life laid down
I’m surrendered now

Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me

Bring me to my knees

Oh lead me lead me to the cross

The word became flesh
Bore my sin in death
Now You’re risen

What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to his
Oh how strange and divine I can sing all is mine
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Verse 2

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side the Saviour he will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need his power is displayed

To this I hold my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley he will lead
Oh the night has been won and I shall overcome
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Verse 3

No fate I dread I know I am forgiven
The future sure the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And he was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released I can sing I am free
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Verse 4

With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For he has said that he will bring me home
And day by day I know he will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to him
When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Ending

When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me
Yet not I but through Christ in me

In the lowest valley

When my heart is heavy
All my days yes I will

To glorify glorify
The name of all names
That nothing can stand against
