Lyrics

AMAZING GRACE/MY CHAINS ARE GONE

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m 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

(HARMONIES)
My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God, my Savior

has ransomed me
And like a flood

His mercy reigns
Unending love, amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God, my Savior

has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, amazing grace

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.

THIS IS AMAZING GRACE
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness? 
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger?
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder? 
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder?
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

[Chorus]
This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love …
That You would take my place…
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

[Verse 2]
Who brings our chaos
back into order?
Who makes the orphan
a son and daughter?
The King of Glory,
the King of Glory


Who rules the nations
with truth and justice?
Shines like the sun in
all of its brilliance?
The King of Glory,
the King above all kings

[Chorus]
[Bridge]
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave (4x)
Worthy, worthy, worthy Oh
[Chorus 2x end)

BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong, a perfect plea:
A great High Priest, whose name is Love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

My name is graven on his hands,
My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heaven he stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look, and see him there
Who made an end of all my sin.

Because a sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Hallelu—jah! Hallelu—jah!
Praise the One, Risen Son of God! (2x)

Behold him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchange-a-ble I am,
The King of glory and of grace!
One in himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by his blood
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Savior and my God
With Christ, my Savior and my God

BLESSED ASSURANCE
[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
Perfect submission, perfect delight
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love

[Refrain]
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

[Verse 3]
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

COME THOU FOUNT 
Come Thou Fount of every blessing  
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy never ceasing 
call for songs of loudest praise

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help I come
And I hope by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me while a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood

O to grace how great a debtor
daily I’m constrained to be
Let Thy goodness like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love,
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above,
Seal it for Thy courts above

IN CHRIST ALONE
In Christ alone my hope is found

He is my light, my strength, my song

This cornerstone, this solid ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease

My comforter, my all in all

Here, in the love of Christ, I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh

Fullness of God in helpless babe

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones he came to save

‘Til on that cross, as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin, on him, was laid

Here, in the death of Christ, I live

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from his hand
‘Til he returns or calls me home
Here, in the power of Christ, I stand

ON CHRIST THE SOLID ROCK 
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

When He shall come with trumpet sound
O may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

BE THOU MY VISION
Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

Riches I need not, nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High king of heaven, my treasure Thou art

HOW GREAT THOU ART
[Verse 1]

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

High king of heaven, my victory won
May I reach heaven’s joy, O bright heav’n’s sun
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, O ruler of all

[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

[Verse 2]
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

[Refrain]

[Verse 3]
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin
[Refrain]

[Verse 4]
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration
And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”
[Refrain]

JESUS PAID IT ALL
[Verse 1]

I hear the Savior say, 
“Thy strength indeed is small, Child of weakness, watch and pray, 
Find in Me thine all in all. “

[Refrain]
Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

[Refrain]

Lord, now in-deed I find,
Thy power, and thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots,
And melt the heart of stone.

[Refrain]
[Verse 3] For nothing good have I,
Where-by the grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white,
In the blood of Calvary’s Lamb.
[Refrain]

[Verse 4]

And when, before the throne,
I stand in Him complete,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
My lips shall still repeat. [Refrain]

[Chorus]

LIVING HOPE

How great the chasm that lay between us

How high the mountain I could not climb

In desperation, I turned to heaven And spoke Your name into the night

Then through the darkness, Your loving-kindness

Tore through the shadows of my soul The work is finished, the end is written

Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Then came the morning
that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me

Then came the morning
that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Jesus, Yours is the victory, whoa!

[Chorus] Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope…

[Outro] Jesus Christ, my living hope
Oh God, You are my living hope
