To God the Father, Son, & Spirit. We wait, we watch, we long for Your kingdom!
Awake, my soul, in joyful praise, sing of my great Redeemer’s ways:
He justly claims a song from me, “His loving-kindness set me free!”
Often I feel my sinful heart prone from my Savior to depart;
but though I have Him oft’ forgot, His loving-kindness changes not!
How precious is Your steadfast love, Eternal Lord of all;
in You is life, is true delight; I choose to rest in love.
Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale, soon my mortal flesh must fail;
O may my last expiring breath, His loving-kindness sing in death!
Then let me mount and soar away to the bright world of endless day,
and see my Savior’s shining face, His loving-kindness, His embrace!
Let pride not turn my heart from You and Your promises,
I will abide in You alone!
Track Name: The Mystery of Faith
Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
Emmanuel! Emmanuel! Christ will come again!
Track Name: Risen Lamb (The Coming King)
Great and glorious is the Lamb of God
who freely chose to die upon the cross.
His love and mercy freed me from my sin;
now my hope is the Lamb who has always been.
So I will sing:
“Great is the Lord who’s worthy of praise!”
I will sing, I will sing.
He’ll bring justice and peace to all who believe in the Risen Lamb, the coming King.
The heavens sing, the angels will proclaim,
“With mighty power You will forever reign!”
Alleluia, Your people offer praise,
we lift one voice to exalt Your righteous ways.
So we will sing:
I will sing of love. I will sing of love.
For Your mercy covers me and Your love sets me free.
When He returns pain and sorrow cease
and I will dwell in His everlasting peace.
Track Name: I Fear the Lord
I heard the sound of Wisdom's voice,
call me from my darkened path:
"Turn your heart at my reproof,
to the light of my word's truth."
Save me from my foolish will
that listens to Temptation’s call.
I leave behind my mocking heart,
and Folly's voice, I disregard.
You are my God!
Help me walk in your wisdom's way.
You are my God!
Father, teach my heart to obey.
Help me seek your truth like gold,
Make my scoffer's heart rust old,
I cry to you, “Save my life!
Your wisdom is my true might!”
I fear the Lord!
The beginning of strength, in the fold of His might!
When I'm desperate and tried, You're the source of my life!
Track Name: Grace
No more, my God, I boast no more in all I have done;
I turn from the false hopes I held to trust the promise of Your Son.
Son of God who came to save a life that’s led without faith,
giving grace undeserved; help me live by Your word.
Help me live by Your word.
O may my soul be found in Him, His righteousness partake,
by faith in Him, cleansed of sin, I live again in His name’s sake.
Now, by love, I bear the Name; what was gain, I count as loss;
my former pride I call my shame and nail my glory to the cross.
Your glory will be my glory, by Your blood I will shine!
Track Name: Home (Part II)
In my Father’s grace, I will come before His throne!
I’m His child redeemed; in His love I’m welcomed home!
(Home) In His love I’m welcomed home!
Track Name: Day of Christ
Wading through the darkened tide, waiting for this curse to die;
Day of Christ, arise on us, illuminate Your promise.
When will You rise upon the sea?
How long till we dwell with Thee in the breakers of Your love;
gaze on glory from above. From these shores we call out praise, call out praise!
We wait, we watch, we long for Your kingdom!
We wait, we watch, we long for You, Jesus…
Track Name: Prayer of the Lowly
Break my pride to pieces and scatter it to the wind.
Put in me humility to rest in Your ways.
For You, help me live; to You help me say…
I’m low, I’m blind, and broken; be my light, be my strength.
A darkened mind bent on folly; give me sight, give me wisdom.
Of You, help me know; of You, help me see.
Holy, holy is the Lord, God Almighty! Worthy, worthy is the King who died for me!
Who am I that You are mindful of me?
(How majestic You are!)
Track Name: One Redeemer
Creator, Holy Spirit, speak;
as angels marvel at Your song:
Light and life into the deep
from which earth and heaven dawn.
But on earth’s last perfect day,
Adam traded glorious love
for sin and death, bitter bondage.
Still, One would come to free those He loved!
From start to end You are the “Amen” to Your promises.
Jesus, my soul’s Savior, the great story’s One Redeemer.
A promise to undo the curse,
Isaac’s blessing to bestow,
Joseph’s grace and humble mercy:
From Jesus’ cross do all of these flow!
Alleluia, my soul’s Savior, my One Redeemer.
Track Name: Doxology
Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
praise Him, all creatures here below,
praise Him above, ye heavenly hosts,
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
