This Is My Father's World

 

Waving Flags

 

This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world, dreaming, I see His face.
Open my eyes, and in glad surprise cry, “The Lord is in this place.”
This is my Father’s world, from the shining courts above,
The Beloved One, His Only Son,
Came—a pledge of deathless love.

This is my Father’s world. O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world: the battle is not done:
Jesus Who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and Heav’n be one.

Brethren, We Have Met to Worship

 

The Soul Miners

 

Brethren, we have met to worship and adore the Lord our God;
Will you pray with all your power, while we try to preach the Word?
All is vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down;
Brethren, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

Brethren, see poor sinners round you slumbering on the brink of woe;
Death is coming, hell is moving, can you bear to let them go?
See our fathers and our mothers, and our children sinking down;
Brethren, pray and holy manna will be showered all around.

Sisters, will you join and help us? Moses’ sister aided him;
Will you help the trembling mourners who are struggling hard with sin?
Tell them all about the Savior, tell them that He will be found;
Sisters, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

Let us love our God supremely, let us love each other, too;
Let us love and pray for sinners, till our God makes all things new.
Then He’ll call us home to Heaven, at His table we’ll sit down;
Christ will gird Himself and serve us with sweet manna all around.

Come Close

 

Crooked Branches

 

When all is well with my soul, or when I’ve fallen down so low 
Your love, it makes me whole; my God, my God, come close

Meet me where I am when I can’t find the strength to stand 
Let Your mercy flow; my God, my God, come close 

Come close; come close 
May I find rest in You alone 
My God, my God, come close 

When I’m walking in the light, I know hell is not far behind 
So keep me as I go; my God, my God, come close

Come close; come close 
May I find rest in You alone 
My God, my God, come close 
My God, my God, come close 

When I’m found with nothing left; oh, with my final breath
You will be my song; my God, my God, oh 
My God, my God, come close

How Majestic

 

Light Society

 

Before we ever drew a breath, You spoke life into existence 
From the dirt, You made our hands to stretch high in adoration 

Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth 
Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth 

We are body, we are soul, soaked in darkness and disaster 
Son of God in flesh and bone, came to lift us from the ashes, 
Now we are Yours forever 

Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth 
Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth 

With the angels in the heavens, we will worship, we will worship
If we’re silent, these stones will cry ‘Holy!’ 

Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth
Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth 

Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth 
Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, the earth 

Oh Lord! Oh Lord!

Show Us Your Heart

 

The Vivid Kids

 

We are the church, called out from our shame.
Each one with a story of how You came to save.

Now, we long to see creation redeemed
And fill the world with Your praise,
Fill the world with Your praise as we anxiously await. 

Show us Your heart O God.
Let our lives sing of Your great unfailing love.

Fill us with the passion to seek and save the lost
that the whole world would know the Savior as Jesus the Lord.
 

Break down our walls. Bring a flood of Your grace.
Give us the courage to step out in faith.
Now, we long to be a kingdom of peace
And fill the world with Your praise,
Fill the world with Your praise as we anxiously await.           

Show us Your heart O God.
Let our lives sing of Your great unfailing love.

Fill us with the passion to seek and save the lost
that the whole world would know the Savior.

Jesus has come. He’s calling home the sons and daughters.
He’s waking our hearts to life.

His love restores and turns our mourning into laughter.
It fills our souls with Your praise. 

Jesus has come. He’s calling home the sons and daughters.
He’s waking our hearts to life.

The curtain’s torn and now along with Hosts of Heaven
We fill this world with Your praise.

O Show us Your heart O God.
Let our lives sing of Your great unfailing love.

Show us Your heart O God.
Let our lives sing of Your great unfailing love.

Fill us with the passion to seek and save the lost
that the whole world would know the Savior as Jesus the Lord.

Joy Before Us

 

The Quints

 

Before You sat down at God’s great right hand 
You were lifted up just outside the promised land
And the One who saw the day that time began
Became the venom’s cure, You became the Son of Man 

So we fix our eyes on You 
We fix our eyes on You

For the joy set before You, You came to our rescue 
And for silver You were sold, Now the thieves get heaven’s gold 
He who finds life will lose it, But in losing we’re finding out 
There’s joy waiting for us – You set joy before us

Before You rolled our final fear away
Your sweat was running red in a garden as You prayed
And the One who saw there was no other way 
Became the mocker’s king, endured the cross, and scorned the shame

For the joy set before You, You came to our rescue
And for silver You were sold, Now the thieves get heaven’s gold
He who finds life will lose it, But in losing we’re finding out
There’s joy waiting for us – You set joy before us

So we fix our eyes on You
We fix our eyes on You 
Author of your fate
Perfecter of our faith 

For the joy set before You, You came to our rescue
And for silver You were sold, Now the thieves get heaven’s gold
He who finds life will lose it, But in losing we’re finding out 
There’s joy waiting for us – Cause You endured the cross
For the joy set before You, You came to our rescue 
And for silver You were sold, Now the thieves get heaven’s gold 
He who finds life will lose it, But in losing we’re finding out
There’s joy waiting for us – You set joy before us

Christ, from Whom All Blessings Flow

 

The Caretakers

 

Christ, from whom all blessings flow, 
Perfecting the saints below, 
Hear us, who Thy nature share, 
Who Thy mystic body are. 

Join us, in one spirit join, 
Let us still receive of Thine; 
Still for more on Thee we call, 
Thou who fillest all in all. 

Love, like death, hath all destroyed 
Rendered all distinctions void; 
Names, and sects, and parties fall:
Thou, O Christ, art all in all. 

Move, and actuate, and guide: 
Diverse gifts to each divide; 
Placed according to Thy will, 
Let us all our work fulfill; 

Love, like death, hath all destroyed 
Rendered all distinctions void; 
Names, and sects, and parties fall: 
Thou, O Christ, art all in all. 

Sweetly may we all agree 
Touched with loving sympathy
Kindly for each other care; 
Every member feel its share. 

Love, like death, hath all destroyed 
Rendered all distinctions void; 
Names, and sects, and parties fall: 
Thou, O Christ, art all in all.

Blessed Assurance

 

The Heritage

 

This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior, all the day long; 
This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior, all the day long. 

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God, 
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior, all the day long; 
This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior, all the day long. 

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight. 
Perfect submission, perfect delight, 
Angels descending, bring from above 
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. 

This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior, all the day long; 
This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior, all the day long. 

Perfect submission, all is at rest, 
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above, 
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love. 

This is my story, this is my song, 
praising my Savior, all the day long; 
praising my Savior, all the day long:
praising my Savior, all the day long.

Amazing Grace

 

Papal States

 

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
