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

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

With my life laid down

Today’s Songs 4-14-24

The Heart Of Worship
I Surrender
I Will Lift My Eyes
Enough

The Heart Of Worship

Verse 1

When the music fades all is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring something that’s of worth
That will bless Your heart

Pre-Chorus

I’ll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

Chorus

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You all about You Jesus
I’m sorry Lord for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You all about You Jesus

Verse 2

King of endless worth no one could express
How much You deserve
Though I’m weak and poor all I have is Yours
Ev’ry single breath

(back to top)

I Surrender

Verse 1

Here I am
Down on my knees again
Surrendering all
Surrendering all

Verse 2

With arms stretched wide
I know You hear my cry
Speak to me now
Speak to me now

Chorus

I surrender
I surrender
I want to know You more
I want to know You more

Like a mighty storm
Stir within my soul

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

(back to top)

Enough

Chorus

All of You is more than enough for all of me
For ev’ry thirst and ev’ry need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You is more than enough

Verse 1

You’re my supply my breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You’re my reward worth living for
Still more awesome than I know
And

Verse 2

You’re my sacrifice of greatest price
Still more awesome than I know
You’re my coming King You are ev’rything
Still more awesome than I know

Bridge

More than all I want more than all I need
You are more than enough for me
More than all I know more than all I can say
You are more than enough

Hymn Of Heaven

Verse 1

How I long to breathe the air of Heaven
Where pain is gone and mercy fills the streets
To look upon the one who bled to save me
And walk with Him for all eternity

Chorus 1

There will be a day
When all will bow before Him
There will be a day
When death will be no more
Standing face to face
With He who died and rose again
Holy holy is the Lord

Verse 2

And ev’ry prayer we prayed in desperation
The songs of faith
We sang through doubt and fear
In the end we’ll see that it was worth it
When He returns to wipe away our tears

Verse 3

And on that day we join the resurrection
And stand beside the heroes of the faith
With one voice a thousand generations
Sing worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Forever He shall reign

Chorus 2

So let it be today
We shout the hymn of Heaven
With angels and the Saints
We raise a mighty roar
Glory to our God
Who gave us life beyond the grave
Holy holy is the Lord
Holy holy is the Lord
Holy holy is the Lord

Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain
Holy holy is He
Sing a new song to Him Who sits on

Chorus

Holy holy holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of kings
You are my ev’rything
And I will adore You

Verse 2

Clothed in rainbows of living color
Flashes of lightning rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor strength and glory
And power be to You the only wise King

Filled with wonder awestruck wonder
At the mention of Your name
Jesus Your name is power breath and living water
Such a marv’lous mystery yeah

The splendor of the King
Clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice
He wraps Himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
And trembles at His voice

Chorus

How great is our God
Sing with me
How great is our God
And all will see how great
How great is our God

Verse 2

And age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the End
Beginning and the End
The Godhead three in one
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

Bridge

Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

Community Sunrise Service Lyrics 3-31-24

Death was Arrested
Man of Sorrows
How Great is Our God

Death was Arrested

Verse 1

Alone in my sorrow and dead in my sin
Lost without hope with no place to begin
Your love made a way to let mercy come in
When death was arrested and my life began

Verse 2

Ash was redeemed only beauty remains
My orphan heart was given a name
My mourning grew quiet my feet rose to dance
When death was arrested and my life began

Chorus

Oh Your grace so free washes over me
You have made me new now life begins with You
It’s Your endless love pouring down on us
You have made us new now life begins with You

Verse 3

Released from my chains I’m a pris’ner no more
My shame was a ransom He faithfully bore
He cancelled my debt and He called me His friend
When death was arrested and my life began

Verse 4

Our Savior displayed on a criminal’s cross
Darkness rejoiced as though Heaven had lost
But then Jesus arose with our freedom in hand
That’s when death was arrested and my life began

Bridge

Oh we’re free free forever we’re free
Come join the song of all the redeemed
Yes we’re free free forever amen
When death was arrested and my life began

(back to top)

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)

How Great Is Our God

Verse 1

The splendor of the King
Clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice
He wraps Himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
And trembles at His voice

Chorus

How great is our God
Sing with me
How great is our God
And all will see how great
How great is our God

Verse 2

And age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the End
Beginning and the End
The Godhead three in one
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

Bridge

Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

Graves Into Gardens

Verse 1

I searched the world but it couldn’t fill me
Man’s empty praise and treasures that fade
Are never enough
Then You came along and put me back together
And every desire is now satisfied here in Your love

Chorus

Oh there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord there’s nothing
Nothing is better than You

Verse 2

I’m not afraid to show You my weakness
My failures and flaws
Lord You’ve seen them all
And You still call me friend
‘Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley
There’s not a place
Your mercy and grace won’t find me again

Bridge

You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You’re the only one who can

Bridge

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You’re the only one who can

(back to top)

Made Alive

Verse 1

I once was dead in sin alone and hopeless
A child of wrath I walked condemned in darkness
But Your mercy brought new life
And in Your love and kindness
Raised me up with Christ and made me righteous

Chorus

You have bought me back with the riches of
Your amazing grace and relentless love
I’m made alive forever with You life forever
By Your grace I’m saved
(By Your grace I’m saved)

Verse 2

Lord You are the light that broke the darkness
You satisfy my soul when I am heartless
If ever I forget my true identity
Show me who I am and help me to believe

Bridge

My sin has been erased
I’ll never be the same

(back to top)

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 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

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

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

(back to top)

How Deep/Jesus Paid It All

Verse 1

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Verse 2

Behold the Man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

Chorus

Oh praise the One Who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead
(Jesus)

Verse 3

I will not boast in anything
No gifts no pow’r no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Verse

And I hear the Savior say
Thy strength indeed is small
Child of weakness watch and pray
Find in Me thine all in all

Chorus

‘Cause Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow

(back to top)

Gratitude

Verse 1

All my words fall short
I got nothing new
How could I express
All my gratitude

Verse 2

I could sing these songs
As I often do
But every song must end
And You never do

Chorus

So I throw up my hands
And praise You again and again
‘Cause all that I have is a hallelujah hallelujah
And I know it’s not much
But I’ve nothing else fit for a king
Except for a heart singing hallelujah
Hallelujah

Verse 3

I’ve got one response
I’ve got just one move
With my arms stretched wide
I will worship You

Bridge

Come on my soul
Oh don’t you get shy on me
Lift up your song
‘Cause you’ve got a lion inside of those lungs
Get up and praise the Lord

(back to top)

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)

O Praise The Name (Anástasis)

Verse 1

I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me
I see His wounds His hands His feet
My Saviour on that cursed tree

Verse 2

His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone

Chorus

O praise the Name of the Lord our God
O praise His Name forevermore
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord oh Lord our God

Verse 3

Then on the third at break of dawn
The Son of heaven rose again
O trampled death where is your sting
The angels roar for Christ the King

Verse 4

He shall return in robes of white
The blazing sun shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints
My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face

(back to top)

Champion

Verse 1

I’ve tried so hard to see it
Took me so long to believe it
That You’d choose someone like me
To carry Your victory

Verse 2

Perfection could never earn it
You give what we don’t deserve and
You take the broken things
And raise them to glory

Chorus

You are my champion giants fall when You stand
Undefeated every battle You’ve won
I am who You say I am You crown me with confidence
I am seated in the heavenly place
Undefeated with the one who has conquered it all

Verse 3

Now I can finally see it
You’re teaching me how to receive it
So let all the striving cease
This is my victory

Bridge

When I lift my voice and shout
Every wall comes crashing down
I have the authority
Jesus has given me
When I open up my mouth
Miracles start breaking out
I have the authority
Jesus has given me

Chorus 2

You are my champion giants fall when You stand
Undefeated every battle You’ve won
I am who You say I am You crown me with confidence
I am seated in the heavenly place
Undefeated by the pow’r of Your name
I am seated in the heavenly place
Undefeated with the one who has conquered it all

(back to top)

Redeemed

Verse 1

Seems like all I could see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wond’ring how long is this gonna last
Then You look at this pris’ner and say to me
Son stop fighting a fight that’s already been won

Chorus

I am redeemed You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
And wipe away ev’ry stain
Now (‘Cause) I’m not who I used to be
(I am redeemed)

Verse 2

All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear You whisper child lift up your head
I remember O God You’re not done with me yet

Bridge

Because I don’t have to be the old man inside of me
‘Cause his day is long dead and gone
Because I’ve got a new name a new life
I’m not the same and a hope that will carry me home

Ending

O God I’m not who I used to be
Jesus I’m not who I used to be
I am redeemed
Thank God redeemed

(back to top)

Glorious Day

Verse 1

I was buried beneath my shame
Who could carry that kind of weight
It was my tomb ’til I met You

Verse 2

I was breathing but not alive
All my failures I tried to hide
It was my tomb ’til I met You

Chorus

(‘Cause when) You called my name (and)
I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness into Your glorious day
You called my name (and) I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness into Your glorious day

Verse 3

Now Your mercy has saved my soul
Now Your freedom is all that I know
The old made new Jesus when I met You

Bridge

I needed rescue my sin was heavy
But chains break at the weight of Your glory
I needed shelter I was an orphan
Now You call me a citizen of Heaven
When I was broken You were my healing
Now Your love is the air that I’m breathing
I have a future my eyes are open

(back to top)

I Thank God

Verse 1

Wandering into the night wanting a place to hide
This weary soul this bag of bones
I try with all of my might
But I just can’t win the fight
I’m slowly drifting a vagabond

Pre-Chorus

And just when I ran out of the road
I met a man I didn’t know
And He told me that I was not alone

Chorus

You picked me up You turned me around
And placed my feet on solid ground
I thank the Master I thank the Savior
Because You healed my heart You changed my name
Forever free I’m not the same
I thank the Master I thank the Savior I thank God

Verse 2

I cannot deny what I’ve seen
Got no choice but to believe
My doubts are burnin’ like ashes in the wind
So so long to my old friends burden and bitterness
You can just keep them moving
Nah you ain’t welcome here

Pre-Chorus

From now till I walk the streets of gold
I’ll sing of how You saved my soul
This wayward son has found his way back home

Bridge

Hell lost another one I am free I am free I am free
(REPEAT)
Hell lost another one I am free I am free

(back to top)

Homecoming

Verse 1

Lord I confess that I’ve been a criminal
I’ve stolen your breath and sang my own song
And Lord I confess that I’m far from innocent
These shackles I wear I bought on my own

Chorus

Scarlet sins had a crimson cost
You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross
An empty slate at the empty grave
Thank God that stone was rolled (away)

Verse 2

Lord I confess I’ve been the prodigal
Made for Your house but walked my own roads
Then Jesus came and tore down my prison walls
Death came to life when He called me by name

Bridge

I see bright crimson robes draped over the ashes
A wide open tomb where there should be a casket
The children are singing and dancing and laughing
The Father is welcoming this is our homecoming
Roses in bloom pushed up from the embers
Rivers of tears flow from good times remembered
Families are singing and dancing and laughing
The Father is welcoming this is our homecoming
Heaven joins in with a glorious sound
And the great cloud of witnesses all gather ‘round
‘Cause the ones that were lost are finally found
The Father is welcoming this is our homecoming

Ending

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
The Father is welcoming this is our homecoming

(back to top)

Child Of Love

Verse 1

I was walking the wayside
Lost on a lonely road
I was chasing the high life
Try’n to satisfy my soul

Verse 2

All the lies I believed in
Left me crying like the rain
Then I saw lightning from heaven
And I’ve never been the same

Chorus

I’m gonna climb a mountain
I’m gonna shout about it
I am a child of love
I found a world of freedom
I found a friend in Jesus
I am a child of love

Verse 3

I’ve felt the sting of the fire
But I saw You in the flames
Just when I thought it was over
You broke me out of the grave

Interlude

Yeah (yeah) oh (oh)
I am a child of love
Yeah (yeah) oh (oh)
I am a child of love

Bridge

Nothing can change the way You love me
Nothing can change the way I belong to You
Yes I do
Nothing can separate

Interlude

I’m gonna climb a mountain
I am a child of love
I found a world of freedom
I am a child of love

Ending

Yeah (yeah) oh (oh)
I am a child of love
Yeah (yeah) oh (oh)
I am a child of love

It Is Well

Verse 1

Grander earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Chorus

Through it all through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all through it all
It is well
Through it all through it all
My eyes are on You
And it is well with me

Verse 2

Far be it from me to not believe
Even when my eyes can’t see
And this mountain that’s in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

Bridge

So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name

Ending

It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well it is well with my soul

So Jesus You brought heaven down
My sin was great Your love was greater
What could separate us now

He Has Won

Verse 1

To all who are the tired and the heavy laden
Hope has come
To all who feel the weight of the broken spirit
Hope has come
Lift up your eyes lift up your head
The power of our sin is dead

Chorus

(‘Cause) (Yes) He has won
Death is swallowed up in victory
Through the Son
The grave has lost its sting and its grip over me
Yes (‘Cause) He has won
(Yes He has won)

Verse 2

To those who seek the love of a perfect father
Hope has come
To those who see the light of the risen Savior
Hope has come
Lift up your eyes lift up your head
The power of our sin is dead

Bridge

Jesus has come Jesus has come
Sing it louder sing it louder
Jesus has won Jesus has won
Sing it louder sing it louder
