about

The Together for the Gospel conference, held every other year since 2006 in Louisville, KY, emerged from a friendship between four
pastors of diverse denominational backgrounds. Their secondary theological differences, while important, didn’t keep them from
celebrating their shared passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Similar to the first two T4G Live albums, Together for the Gospel
Live III sets that passion to song. It contains a variety of hymns–
old and new, familiar and unfamiliar–with theologically driven
lyrics and timeless melodies.

Hymns remain unique in their ability to provide doctrinal fuel for
our emotional fire. They help us “feel the truth,” and can enable
congregations of multiple generations to express their unity in
the gospel.

While Psalm 150 cites a number of instruments used to praise God, we went with just one piano for this recording. The centerpiece is 10,000 voices lifting up praises to the only God through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.

We hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as we did
singing them. More importantly, we’d like it best if you joined your heart and voice with ours to praise our glorious and gracious God whose mercies are never ending in the Savior.

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

He built the earth, He spread the sky,
And fixed the starry lights on high;
Wonders of grace to God belong;
Repeat His mercies in your song.

He fills the sun with morning light,
He bids the moon direct the night;
His mercies ever shall endure
When suns and moons shall shine no more.

He sent His Son with pow’r to save
From guilt and darkness and the grave;
Wonders of grace to God belong;
Repeat His mercies in your song.

Through this vain world He guides our feet
And leads us to His heav’nly seat;
His mercies ever shall endure
When this our world shall be no more.

Track Name: His Forever
Jesus, friend of sinners,
Loved me ere I knew Him,
Drew me with His cords of love,
Tightly bound me to Him.
’Round my heart, still closely twined,
The ties that none can sever.
For I am His and He is mine
Forever and forever.

Jesus, friend of sinners,
A crown of thorns You wore for me,
Bruised for my transgressions,
Pierced for my iniquities.
The wrath of God that I deserved
Was poured out on the Innocent.
He took my place, my soul to save.
Now I am His forever.

Jesus, friend of sinners,
I love to tell the story;
Redeeming love has been my theme
And will be when in glory.
Not death, nor life, nor anything
Can ever separate me.
Oh, love that will not let me go,
Yes, I am His forever.

Track Name: See the Destined Day Arise
VERSE 1
See the destined day arise!
See a willing sacrifice!
Jesus, to redeem our loss,
Hangs upon the shameful cross;
Jesus, who but You could bear
Wrath so great and justice fair,
Every pang and bitter throe,
Finishing Your life of woe?

CHORUS
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Lamb of God for sinners slain!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ, we praise Your name!

VERSE 2
Who but Christ had dared to drain,
Steeped in gall, the cup of pain,
And with tender body bear
Thorns and nails and piercing spear?
Slain for us, the water flowed,
Mingled from Your side with blood;
Sign to all attesting eyes
Of the finished sacrifice.

VERSE 3
Holy Jesus, grant us grace
In that sacrifice to place
All our trust for life renewed,
Pardoned sin, and promised good.
Grant us grace to sing Your praise
‘Round Your throne through endless days,
Ever with the sons of light,
“Blessing, honor, glory, might!”

Track Name: Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed?
VERSE 1
Alas! and did my Savior bleed
Snd did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?
Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity, grace unknown,
And love beyond degree!

VERSE 2
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut His glories in
When Christ the mighty Maker died
For man the creature’s sin.
Thus might I hide my blushing face
While His dear cross appears;
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness
And melt my eyes with tears.

VERSE 3
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.
Alas! and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sovereign die?
Amazing pity, grace unknown,
And love beyond degree!

Track Name: Not in Me
VERSE 1
No list of sins I have not done,
No list of virtues I pursue,
No list of those I am not like
Can earn myself a place with You.
O God, be merciful to me–
I am a sinner through and through!
My only hope of righteousness
Is not in me, but only You.

VERSE 2
No humble dress, no fervent prayer,
No lifted hands, no tearful song,
No recitation of the truth
Can justify a single wrong.
My righteousness is Jesus’ life, m
My debt was paid by Jesus’ death,
My weary load was borne by Him
And He alone can give me rest.

No separation from the world,
No work I do, no gift I give
Can cleanse my conscience, cleanse my hands;
I cannot cause my soul to live.
But Jesus died and rose again–
The power of death is overthrown!
My God is merciful to me
And merciful in Christ alone.

TAG
My righteousness is Jesus’ life, m
My debt was paid by Jesus’ death,
My weary load was borne by Him
And He alone can give me rest.

Track Name: Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted
VERSE 1
Stricken, smitten, and afflicted,
See Him dying on the tree!
‘Tis the Christ by man rejected;
Yes, my soul, ‘tis He, ‘tis He!
‘Tis the long-expected Prophet,
David’s son, yet David’s Lord;
By His Son God now has spoken:
‘Tis the true and faithful Word.

VERSE 2
Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning,
Was there ever grief like His?
Friends through fear His cause disowning,
Foes insulting His distress;
Many hands were raised to wound Him,
None would interpose to save;
But the deepest stroke that pierced Him
Was the stroke that Justice gave.

VERSE 3
Ye who think of sin but lightly,
Nor suppose the evil great,
Here may view its nature rightly,
Here its guilt may estimate.
Mark the sacrifice appointed,
See who bears the awful load;
‘Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed,
Son of Man and Son of God.

VERSE 4
Here we have a firm foundation;
Here the refuge of the lost;
Christ, the Rock of our salvation,
His the name of which we boast.
Lamb of God, for sinners wounded,
Sacrifice to cancel guilt!
None shall ever be confounded
Who on Him their hope have built.

Music: O Mein Jesu, Ich Muss Sterben
Track Name: He Will Hold Me Fast
VERSE 1
When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

REFRAIN
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

VERSE 2
Those He saves are His delight,
Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in His holy sight,
He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost;
His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost,
He will hold me fast.

VERSE 3
For my life He bled and died,
Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied;
He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life,
He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight
When He comes at last!

Track Name: Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul
VERSE 1
Dear refuge of my weary soul,
On Thee, when sorrows rise,
On Thee, when waves of trouble roll,
My fainting hope relies.
To Thee I tell each rising grief,
For Thou alone canst heal;
Thy Word can bring a sweet relief
For every pain I feel.

VERSE 2
But oh! When gloomy doubts prevail,
I fear to call Thee mine;
The springs of comfort seem to fail,
And all my hopes decline.
Yet, gracious God, where shall I flee?
Thou art my only trust;
And still my soul would cleave to Thee
Though prostrate in the dust.

VERSE 3
Hast Thou not bid me seek Thy face,
And shall I seek in vain?
And can the ear of sov’reign grace
Be deaf when I complain?
No, still the ear of sov’reign grace
Attends the mourner’s prayer;
O may I ever find access
To breathe my sorrows there.

VERSE 4
Thy mercy seat is open still,
Here let my soul retreat;
With humble hope attend Thy will,
And wait beneath Thy feet.
Thy mercy seat is open still,
Here let my soul retreat;
With humble hope attend Thy will,
And wait beneath Thy feet.

Track Name: Our Great God
VERSE 1
Eternal God, unchanging,
Mysterious and unknown;
Your boundless love, unfailing,
In grace and mercy shown.
Bright seraphim in ceaseless flight
Around Your glorious throne;
They raise their voices day
And night in praise to You alone!

CHORUS
Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God!
Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God!

VERSE 2
Lord, we are weak and frail
And are helpless in the storm;
Surround us with Your angels
And hold us in Your arms.
Our cold and ruthless enemy,
His pleasure is our harm.
Rise up, O Lord, and he will flee
Before our sovereign God.

VERSE 3
Let every creature in the sea
And every flying bird,
Let every mountain, every field,
And valley of the earth,
Let all the moons and all the stars
In all the universe
Sing praises to the living God
Who rules them by His Word.
