New Here

Here are the lyrics for the songs this week:

 

GRACE ALONE

I was an orphan lost at the fall

Running away when I'd hear your call

But Father, you worked your will

I had no righteousness of my own

I had no right to draw near your throne

But Father, you loved me still

 

And in love before you laid the world's foundation

You predestined to adopt me as your own

You have raised me so high u above my station

I'm a child of God by grace and grace alone

 

You left your home to seek out the lost

You knew the great and terrible cost

But Jesus, your face was set

I worked my fingers down to the bone

Nothing I did could ever atone

But Jesus, you paid my debt

 

By your blood I have redemption and salvation

Lord, you died that I might reap what you have sown

And you rose that I might be a new creation

I am born again by grace and grace alone

 

I was in darkness all of my life

I never knew the day from the night

But Spirit, you made me see

I swore I knew the way on my own

Head full of rocks, a heart made of stone

But Spirit, you moved in me

 

At your touch my sleeping spirit was awakened

On my darkened heart the light of Christ has shone

Called into a kingdom that cannot be shaken

Heaven's citizen by grace and grace alone

So I'll stand in faith by grace and grace alone

I will run the race by grace and grace alone

I will slay my sin by grace and grace alone

I will reach the end by grace and grace alone

 

JERUSALEM

See Him in Jerusalem

Walking where the crowds are

Once these streets had sung to Him

Now they cry for murder

 

Such a frail and lonely man

Holding up the heavy cross

See Him walking in Jerusalem

On the road to save us

 

See him there upon the hill

Hear the scorn and laughter

Silent as a lamb he waits

Praying to the father

 

See the king who made the sun

And the moon and shining stars

Let the soldiers hold and nail him down

So that he could save them

 

See him there upon the cross

Now no longer breathing

Dust that formed the watching crowds

Takes the blood of Jesus

 

Feel the earth is shaking now

See the veil is split in two

And he stood before the wrath of God

Shielding sinners with his blood

 

See the empty tomb today

Death could not contain him

Once the servant of the world

Now in victory reigning

 

Lift your voices to the one

Who is seated on the throne

See him in the new Jerusalem

Praise the one who saved us

Lift your voices to the one

Who is seated on the throne

See him in the new Jerusalem

Praise the one who saved us

Praise the one who saved us

 

SOONER COUNT THE STARS

I could sooner count the stars, Than number all Your ways

Though I only know in part, That part exceeds all praise
As sunlight fills the skies, Your goodness fills my life
For all Your precious gifts, Receive my gratefulness


I could sooner drink the seas, Than fathom all Your love
Like a never ceasing stream, Are mercies through Your Son
The death of Christ alone, Deserves eternal song
For such a love as His, Receive my gratefulness


No praise is high enough, No thanks is deep enough
No life is long enough, To tell of all You’ve done
No shout is loud enough, No words are strong enough
No song is sweet enough, To sing Your love


I could sooner turn back time, Than turn Your heart away
Though the years go fleeting by, Your mercies never change
Before You made the sun, Your love was set on us
For all Your faithfulness, Receive my gratefulness



CHRIST IS MINE FOREVERMORE

Mine are days that God has numbered

I was made to walk with Him

Yet I look for worldly treasure

And forsake the King of kings

But mine is hope in my Redeemer

Though I fall, His love is sure

For Christ has paid for every failing

I am His forevermore

 

Mine are tears in times of sorrow

Darkness not yet understood

Through the valley I must travel

Where I see no earthly good

But mine is peace that flows from heaven

And the strength in times of need

I know my pain will not be wasted

Christ completes his work in me

 

Mine are days here as a stranger

Pilgrim on a narrow way

One with Christ I will encounter

Harm and hatred for His name

But mine is armour for this battle

Strong enough to last the war

And He has said He will deliver

Safely to the golden shore

And mine are keys to Zion city

Where beside the King I walk

For there my heart has found its treasure

Christ is mine forevermore

 

Come rejoice now, O my soul

For His love is my reward

Fear is gone and hope is sure

Christ is mine forevermore

 

And mine are keys to Zion city

Where beside the King I walk

For there my heart has found its treasure

Christ is mine forevermore

Christ is mine forevermore

Christ is mine forevermore
