about

Recorded live at WorshipGod11, 'The Gathering' contains 15 songs that progressively tell the story of the gospel and our appropriate response to it. It's a story God's people have been celebrating together for thousands of years. Jesus Christ died for our sins, rose from the dead, and will come back one day to live forever with those he redeemed. We pray these songs will help you remember and rejoice in that good news--over and over again.

The songs on The Gathering can be sung individually, but together they form a progression that reflects the gospel and our response to it.

A call to worship (“There Is One Reason”) leads to proclaiming God’s greatness (“Greater Than We Can Imagine,” “Come Praise and Glorify”).

In view of God’s glory, we more clearly see our sinfulness and need for mercy before his holiness (“Shine into Our Night,” “Have Mercy on Me”). We then rejoice in the good news that God has forgiven us and reconciled us to himself through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (“Now Why This Fear,” “Isaiah 53”).

A fresh awareness of God’s mercy in Christ makes us grateful for his generosity and kindness in every way (“Generous King”), which leads us to eagerly ask for more of his grace (“When You Move”). A desire to know God’s will through his Word (“Your Words of Life,” “Show Us Christ”) is followed by expressions of commitment and communion (“All I Have Is Christ,” “We Hunger and Thirst”).

Having rehearsed and celebrated the gospel and its effect in our lives, we want to take this good news to the world (“Lift High the Cross”).

A final song reminds us that we leave relying not on our own strength, but on the love of God, the grace of Christ, and the power of the Spirit (“As You Go”).

Track Name: There Is One Reason
Verse 1
There is one reason why we’re gathered here
Your love is causing us to sing
All of Your people through Your Son draw near
Sinners before their holy King
The church of God bought by blood

Chorus
We love You, Father
God of all, our God forever
We praise You, Jesus
Christ our Lord, the Son, our Savior
We’re here together
In Your Holy Spirit gathered for Your glory

Verse 2
There’s a foundation that we’re building on
Rooted in Jesus Christ alone
Ev’ry believer firmly fixed upon
Our everlasting cornerstone
The church of God built by love

Bridge
One Body, one baptism
One hope to which we have been called
One faith, one Lord, one Spirit
One sovereign ruler over all

We love You, Father
We praise You, Jesus
We’re here together
For Your glory

On Your wondrous works, Lord, we’ll meditate

And Your abundant goodness

Because You are greater than we can imagine
You are too beautiful for us to fathom
Oh You are great and greatly to be praised

Every generation shall sing Your worth
And magnify Your mercy and Your grace

To bear the sins of those He came to save

Track Name: Come Praise and Glorify
Verse 1
Come praise and glorify our God
The Father of our Lord
In Christ He has in heav’nly realms
His blessings on us poured
For pure and blameless in His sight
He destined us to be
And now we’ve been adopted through
His Son eternally

Chorus
To the praise of Your glory
To the praise of Your mercy and grace
To the praise of Your glory
You are the God who saves

Verse 2
Come praise and glorify our God
Who gives His grace in Christ
In Him our sins are washed away
Redeemed through sacrifice
In Him God has made known to us
The myst’ry of His will
That Christ should be the head of all
His purpose to fulfill

Verse 3
Come praise and glorify our God
For we’ve believed the Word
And through our faith we have a seal
The Spirit of the Lord
The Spirit guarantees our hope
Until redemption’s done
Until we join in endless praise
To God, the Three in One

Track Name: Shine into Our Night
Verse 1
We are not what we should be
We haven’t sought what we should seek
We’ve seen Your glory, Lord, but looked away
Our hearts are bent, our eyes are dim
Our finest works are stained with sin
And emptiness has shadowed all our ways

Chorus
Jesus Christ, shine into our night
Drive our dark away
Till Your glory fills our eyes
Jesus Christ, shine into our night
Bind us to Your cross, where we find life

Verse 2
Still we often go astray
We chase the world, forget Your grace
But You have never failed to bring us back
Reveal the depths of what You’ve done
The death You died, the vict’ry won
You made a way for us to know Your love

Track Name: Have Mercy on Me
Verse 1
I am a sinner; You’re blameless, Lord
My sins against You can’t be ignored
They will be punished, I know they must
Your law demands it, for You are just

Pre-Chorus
If You would count
Everything that I’ve done wrong
Who could stand?
But there’s forgiveness with You, God

Chorus
Have mercy on me, have mercy on me
A broken and a contrite heart
You won’t turn away
Have mercy on me, have mercy on me
Because of Your steadfast love

Verse 2
Father of mercy, You gave Your Son
To make atonement for wrongs I have done
What You required, Jesus fulfilled
I don’t deserve it—I never will

Track Name: Now Why This Fear
Verse 1
Now why this fear and unbelief?
Has not the Father put to grief
His spotless Son for us?
And will the righteous Judge of men
Condemn me for that debt of sin
Now canceled at the cross?

Chorus
Jesus, all my trust is in Your blood
Jesus, You’ve rescued us
Through Your great love

Verse 2
Complete atonement You have made
And by Your death have fully paid
The debt Your people owed
No wrath remains for us to face
We’re sheltered by Your saving grace
And sprinkled with Your blood

Bridge
How sweet the sound of saving grace
How sweet the sound of saving grace
Christ died for me

Verse 3
Be still my soul and know this peace
The merits of your great high priest
Have bought your liberty
Rely then on His precious blood
Don’t fear your banishment from God
Since Jesus sets you free

Track Name: Isaiah 53
Verse 1
No majesty or beauty
He came to dwell with the lowly
Man of sorrows, despised, rejected
As one from whom men hide their faces
Despised and we esteemed Him not

Chorus 1
Oh He has come, look upon the One
Jesus, Son of God, lifted up for us

Verse 2
He bore our griefs and afflictions
Pierced for our transgressions
We like sheep have gone astray
Each of us to his own way
His punishment has brought us peace

Chorus 2
Oh He has come, look upon the One
Jesus, Son of God, lifted up for us
Oh see His love, Jesus, heaven’s light
No longer to be despised
Glorious in our eyes

Verse 3
Unto death He was stricken
Assigned a grave with the wicked
Raised to life and seated glorious
Savior King, our God victorious
Never more to die, He lives

Tag
Oh He has come
Oh see His love

You spoke and our hearts began to beat
You gave us breath and air to breathe

Out of Your fullness, showering kindness
You give, generous King
Mercies unending, love never failing
You give

The wrath we deserved was furious
The cup that we drink is full of love
It’s all from You, Lord, it’s all from You
Your Spirit You’ve freely given us

With humble hearts we thank You
With grateful hearts we sing out

We look to You, we look to You

For when You move, our lives are changed
We know a taste of heaven here
We’re crying out for more of You
Lord, come and move

Let Your gospel fill the earth
Till the day that You return
We look to You, we look to You

Track Name: Show Us Christ

Prepare our hearts, O God
Help us to receive
Break the hard and stony ground
Help our unbelief
Plant Your Word down deep in us
Cause it to bear fruit

O God, reveal Your glory
Through the preaching of Your Word
Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord

Your Word is living light
Upon our darkened eyes
Guards us through temptations

Your Word is food for famished ones
Freedom for the slave
Riches for the needy soul
Come speak to us today

Where else can we go
You have the words of eternal life

Track Name: All I Have Is Christ
Verse 1
I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

Verse 2
But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Chorus
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Verse 3
Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
O Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You

Track Name: We Hunger and Thirst
Verse 1
Exalted Son of glory humbly came down
Wounded for the broken, bore the sinner’s crown
Through the willing death You died
You became our bread of life

Chorus
Jesus, we hunger and thirst for You, Lord
As we remember Your sacrifice
We see the wounds from Your hands and pierced side
Extravagant love! Oh how great the price
Now our lives are Yours

Verse 2
The priceless blood of Jesus, this gracious cup
A life spring overflowing, poured out for us
He has conquered every sin
For the ones who trust in Him

Bridge
The cup we drink, the bread we eat
Reminds us You are all we need
And makes us long for Your wedding feast

Track Name: Lift High the Cross
Verse 1
A wasted life, a brutal death
To the blind a tragic story
For they could not see God’s glory
Was on display
Yet beautiful to all the ones
Given eyes to see the Savior
Objects of the Father’s favor
Bought by His grace
Hope of all the earth and our salvation

Chorus
Lift high the cross
Here is the Father’s love revealed to us
Lift high the cross
Proclaim to a dying world
There’s life in Jesus Christ

Verse 2
Now You’ve enabled us to be
Hands that reach out to the broken
With the love that makes hearts open
And come to life
So by Your power may our lives
Like the moon reflect Your radiance
Be a sweet and holy fragrance
Revealing Christ
Hope of all the earth and our salvation

Bridge
There is no other name
By which we must be saved
Only Jesus, only Jesus

Track Name: As You Go
Verse 1
As you go, may you know the love of Christ
How deep and long, how high and wide
As you leave, may you seek to win the prize
And find His death to be your life

Chorus
May you go in the love of your Father God
May you go in the grace of Christ
May you go in the power of the Spirit now
To bring Him glory with your life

Verse 2
As you go, may you know the pow’r of grace
His very strength for what’s to come
As you leave, may you feel His mighty hand
Guiding your steps in the race you run

Verse 3
As you go, may you show His heart to bless
The ones with less, the blind and lost
As you leave, may you be the light of Christ
And show our hope is in the cross
