Here are the lyrics for the songs this week:

 

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

 

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

 

KING OF KINGS

In the darkness we were waiting

Without hope, without light

'Til from Heaven You came running

There was mercy in Your eyes

To fulfill the law and prophets

To a virgin came the word

From a throne of endless glory

To a cradle in the dirt

 

Praise the Father, praise the Son

Praise the Spirit, three in one

God of glory, Majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings

 

To reveal the kingdom coming

And to reconcile the lost

To redeem the whole creation

You did not despise the cross

For even in your suffering

You saw to the other side

Knowing this was our salvation

Jesus for our sake you died

 

Praise the Father, praise the Son

Praise the Spirit, three in one

God of glory, Majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings

 

And the morning that You rose

All of Heaven held its breath

'Til that stone was moved for good

For the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs

And the angels stood in awe

For the souls of all who'd come

To the Father are restored

And the church of Christ was born

Then the Spirit lit the flame

Now this gospel truth of old

Shall not kneel, shall not faint

By His blood and in His name

In His freedom I am free

For the love of Jesus Christ

Who has resurrected me

 

Praise the Father, praise the Son

Praise the Spirit, three in one

God of glory, Majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings

Praise forever to the King of Kings

THE WAY

All creation cries out with longing

With groans only You can comprehend

And with wisdom, You always answer

And give the words of life so unfailing

 

And Your glory shines all around us

Your faithfulness shown for all to see

When we think of all of Your wonders

The beauty of Your plan that's been revealed

 

When we walk in Your light, we walk in it

Shine bright, let Your glory fill this land

Lift high, the King of Kings and great I am

Jesus, You are the way

You are the way

 

We can see the works of Your loving hands

With a hope and peace not made by man

When You poured out Your grace and Your mercy

And You held out Your arms so we could see

 

You bled for all mankind and set the captives free, yeah

Shine bright, let Your glory fill this land

Lift high, the King of Kings and great I am

Jesus, You are the way

You are the way

 

Shine bright, let Your glory fill this land

Lift high, the King of Kings and great I am

Shine bright, let Your glory fill this land

Lift high, the King of Kings and great I am

Jesus, You are the way

You are the way

Jesus, You are the way

You are the way, You are the way
