Track Name: Come, Christians One and All, Rejoice
Come, Christians, one and all, rejoice,
With exultation ringing,
And, with united heart and voice,
In adoration singing.
Proclaim the wonders God has done,
How His right arm the victory won,
Though dearly it has cost Him.

Fast bound in Satan’s chains I lay,
Death brooded darkly o’er me.
Sin was my torment night and day,
Holding my guilt before me.
Yea, deep and deeper still I fell,
Life had become a living hell,
So firmly sin possessed me.

My own good works availed me naught,
No merit they attaining.
Free will against God’s judgment fought,
Dead to all good remaining
My fears increased till sheer despair
Left naught but death to be my share;
The pangs of hell I suffered.

But God beheld my wretched state,
Before the world’s foundation,
And, mindful of His mercies great,
He planned my soul’s salvation.
A Father’s heart he turned to me,
Sought my redemption fervently,
He gave His dearest treasure.
Track Name: Bless Thou Jehovah
Oh, my soul bless thou Jehovah, God of love and grace art thou,
Thou alone art wise and holy; At thy feet I humbly bow.

REFRAIN:

Bless Jehovah, oh my soul,
Cry aloud, upon Him call;
At His feet we humbly fall,
And crown Jehovah Lord of all.

Thou, Thy Son hast freely given, All our sins to bear away,
On the cross He made atonement, Then to glory led the way.

(Refrain)
He for us received the Spirit, precious gift of love divine,
Shed Him forth upon Thy children; Now forever He is mine.
(Refrain)

Jesus soon again returneth, Evermore with Him I’ll be,
Like Him through the endless ages, Saved for all eternity.
Track Name: Kyrie (With Broken Heart and Contrite Sigh)
With broken heart and contrite sigh,
A trembling sinner, Lord, I cry,
Thy pardoning grace is rich and free:
O God, be merciful to me.

I smite upon my troubled breast,
With deep and conscious guilt oppressed,
Christ and His Cross my only plea:
O God, be merciful to me.

Nor alms, nor deeds that I have done,
Can for a single sin atone;
To Calvary alone I flee:
O God, be merciful to me.

I turn my heart to seek Thy face,
Forgive me, Lord, by Thy good grace.
For me You died at Calvary:
For God is merciful to me.

Kyrie, Christe, Kyrie eleison

And when, redeemed from sin and hell,
With all the ransomed throng I dwell,
My raptured song shall ever be:
God has been merciful to me.
Track Name: Alas, and Did My Savior Bleed?
Alas! And did my savior bleed?
And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For sinners such as I?

Was it for crimes that I have done
He hung upon the tree?
Amazing pity! Grace unknown!
And love beyond degree.

Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glory in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died
For man the creature’s sin.

Thus might I hide my blushing face
When His dear cross appears:
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.

But drops of grief can ne’er repay
The debt of love I owe.
Here, Lord, I give myself away,
‘Tis all that I can do.
Track Name: Nailed to the Cross
There was One who was willing to die in my stead,
That a soul so unworthy might live;
And the path to the cross He was willing to tread,
All the sins of my life to forgive.

REFRAIN:
They are nailed to the cross,
They are nailed to the cross,
O how much He was willing to bear!
With what anguish and loss
Jesus went to the cross!
But He carried my sins with Him there.

He is tender and loving and patient with me,
While He cleanses my heart of the dross;
But "there's no condemnation"-- I know I am free,
For my sins are all nailed to the cross.

(Refrain)

I will cling to my Savior and never depart--
I will joyfully journey each day.
With a song in my lips and a song in my heart,
That my sins have been taken away.

(Refrain)
Track Name: Song of Deliverance
Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow;
Though they be as crimson, they shall be pure as wool;
How blessed is he whose sin is covered by the blood;
Not counted against him but washed in the cleansing flood;

Forever, O Lord, my sin was before You,
You’ve known every thought, every scheme;
But now I confess, and ask for Your mercy
To pour on my heart, make it clean.
You say:

(refrain)

You shelter me, Lord, in Your lovingkindness,
I rest in the peace that You bring;
Whenever my heart is filled with affliction,
This song of deliverance You sing.
You say:

(refrain)
Track Name: Give to Our God Immortal Praise
Give to our God immortal praise,
Mercy and truth are all His ways;
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat His mercies in your song;
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia!

Give to the Lord of lords renown,
The King of kings with glory crown,
Alleluia…
His mercies ever shall endure
When lords and kings are known no more.
Alleluia…

He saw the Gentiles dead in sin,
And felt His pity work within,
Alleluia…
His mercies ever shall endure,
When sin and death shall reign no more.
Alleluia…

He sent His Son with power to save,
From guilt, and darkness, and the grave,
Alleluia…
Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat His mercies in your song!
Alleluia…
Track Name: Have Thine Own Way, Lord
Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Search me and try me, Master, today!
Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,
As in Thy presence humbly I bow.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Wounded and weary, help me, I pray!
Power, all power, surely is Thine!
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Hold o’er my being absolute sway!
Fill with Thy Spirit ’till all shall see
Christ only, always, living in me.
Track Name: Love Divine
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven to earth come down;
Fix in us thy humble dwelling;
All thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation;
Enter every trembling heart.

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,
Into every troubled breast!
Let us all in Thee inherit;
Let us find that second rest.
Take away our bent to sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its Beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.

Come, Almighty to deliver,
Let us all Thy life receive;
Suddenly return and never,
Never more Thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.

Finish, then, Thy new creation;
Pure and spotless let us be.
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee;
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heaven we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
Track Name: Psalm 30
Hear me, O Lord; I cry to Thee,
Help me, O Lord, and have mercy on me.
I cry to You Lord; You answer my prayer,
I call to You Lord for I know You are there.

Did You hide Your face, or did I not see
Your pardon and grace, Your mercies to me?
I lay in the pit, but you rescued my soul;
You lifted me up, and Your love made me whole…

CHORUS:
And You turned my mourning into Your dancing,
Took off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy;
I’ll sing to You, and I’ll never keep silent;
I’ll exalt You forever; I will thank You forever,
I will praise You forever, O Lord, my God.

I will give thanks for all of my days,
You rescued my life; so I’ll sing Your praise.
I will never be moved, for Your help made me strong;
I will give You my praise with my life and my song.

(BRIDGE)
Sing to the Lord, all You His people,
Give thanks to His holy name,
For your weeping may last for the night,
But rejoicing will come with His light…

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Immanuel
When once I mourned a load of sin;
When conscience felt a wound within;
When all my works were thrown away;
When on my knees I knelt to pray:
Then, blissful hour! remembered well,
I learned Thy love, IMMANUEL.

When storms of sorrow toss my soul,
When waves of care around me roll,
When comforts sink, when joys shall flee,
When hopeless griefs shall gape for me;
One word the tempest’s rage shall quell:
That word, Thy Name, IMMANUEL.

When hell, enraged, lifts up her roar;
When Satan stops my path before;
When foes rejoice and wait my end,
When legioned hosts their arrows send;
Fear not, my soul, but hurl at hell
Thy battle cry: IMMANUEL.

When tears are banished from my eye;
When fairer worlds than these are nigh;
When heav’n shall fill my ravished sight;
When I shall rest in sweet delight;
One joy all joys shall far excel:
To see Thy face, IMMANUEL.
Track Name: Lord of the New Creation
There’s a river that flows in a dry, thirsty land,
There’s a flower that grows in a desert of sand,
There’s a flood that is rising from a bottomless spring,
The wilderness places rejoice and they sing.

There’s a place where the slaves will all be set free,
The lame leap for joy, and the blind eyes can see:
The deaf and the dumb are restored, and they sing
To the suffering servant, the conquering king:

CHORUS:
Hallelujah
To the Lord of the New Creation;
Hallelujah,
The Lord has made everything new.

The weak will be strong and the weary will rise,
The blind receive sight and they open their eyes
To see that the world has been changed from above,
By the river that flows and brings mercy and love;

So follow the highway that leads to the place
Where we’ll all sing for joy at His glory and grace;
No sin will be found there along all the way,
For we follow the one who will wash it away,

(Chorus)

We’ll be crowned with a joy to which none can compare,
No sorrow or sadness will ever be there,
And we’ll sing to the Lord when His glory we view,
To the praise of the one who makes everything new,

(Chorus)
