VERSE 1 The gospel was promised by sages and prophets The Scriptures spoke of a Son Descendant of David and yet uncreated Clothed in our flesh He would come Predestined to seek us, He took on our weakness And died our death on the cross But just as was spoken, the grave could not hold Him The glorious Son of God CHORUS His name is Jesus His name is Jesus His name is Jesus Christ, our Lord VERSE 2 We're loved and forgiven, compelled by a vision To see His mercy proclaimed Announcing salvation to every nation All for the sake of His name We're no longer strangers, for Jesus, our Savior Has come to make us His own We're called to be holy and now we live only To make His glory known Music and Words by Joel Sczebel and Bob Kauflin © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI).

VERSE 1 Grace and peace, oh how can this be For lawbreakers and thieves For the worthless, the least You have said, that our judgment is death For all eternity Without hope, without rest Oh, what an amazing mystery What an amazing mystery That Your grace has come to me VERSE 2 Grace and peace, oh how can this be? The matchless King of all Paid the blood price for me Slaughtered Lamb, what atonement You bring! The vilest sinner's heart Can be cleansed, can be free Oh, what an amazing mystery What an amazing mystery That Your grace has come to me VERSE 3 Grace and peace, oh how can this be? Let songs of gratefulness Ever rise, never cease Loved by God and called as a saint My heart is satisfied In the riches of Christ Oh, what an amazing mystery What an amazing mystery That Your grace has come to me TAG Oh, what an amazing love I see What an amazing love I see That Your grace has come to me Oh, what an amazing love I see What an amazing love I see That Your grace has come to me Music and Words by Joel Sczebel © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)

VERSE 1 Who but the Lord set the bound'ries of light Hung the stars in the night? Who but the Lord drew the face on the moon Made the planets to move? Who but the Lord tells the clouds when to pour Thunder to roar? Amazing are Your works CHORUS Almighty Maker You command heaven and earth By the power of Your Word Be praised forever Almighty Maker All creation sings of You Glory fills all that You do Be praised forever, ever, and evermore VERSE 2 Who but the Lord could have dreamed of the plan That would save fallen man? Who but the Lord washes rebels with blood Making mercy a flood? Who but the Lord could give life through a cross Rescuing us? Amazing are Your ways BRIDGE All things are from You All things are through You O God, the great I AM All things are for You All things are to You O God, the great I AM Music and Words by Steve & Vikki Cook © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)

VERSE 1 O holy Judge, here is my heart What can I say to You? Where could I run, how could I hide? Darkness is day to You The heart of a man is a maze within So, come, light the way, illuminate sin Nothing’s concealed, all is revealed Jesus, I yield to You CHORUS Judge of the secrets Of the hearts of men Here I surrender And humbly repent You've conquered my soul Now be its defense Judge of the secrets Of the hearts of men VERSE 2 I was condemned under Your law Rightly, I stood accused I felt my need, my conscience agreed I was without excuse So how can I judge The ones who fall? I know in my heart I’m just like them all I will confess: My righteousness Jesus, must rest in You TAG O holy Judge, here is my heart What can I say to You? I will not run, I will not hide I know I’m safe with You Music and Words by Dave Fournier © 2013 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 Our mouths were open graves Full of broken vows we made Our hearts ran wild Our tongues could not be tamed VERSE 2 What darkness had concealed Your law has now revealed Our guilt was great Our bitter fate was sealed CHORUS 1 Our only hope Our only hope is You, Lord Our only hope Our only hope is You VERSE 3 Though hypocrites and fools You draw us to the truth For Your own glory You make all things new CHORUS 2 Our only hope Our only hope is You, Lord Our only hope Our only hope is You, Lord BRIDGE The bridges we had burned You have restored You gave us hope when there was none before You paid the debt that we could not afford And cast away our guilt forevermore VERSE 4 So, when our days are through Our hope will rest in You For we can trust Your promises are true Music and Words by Neil & Kate DeGraide © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)

VERSE 1 Even when we were weak, despairing and broken You did not give us to our hearts' desires You came as You promised, a rescue for sinners You conquered death by giving up Your life PRE-CHORUS At the right time You died for the ungodly At the right time You showed Your love for us CHORUS Our God is a God Who saves Our God is a God Who saves Our hearts are filled with wonder Our mouths are filled with praise Our God is a God Who saves VERSE 2 If we've been reconciled while we were still rebels How much more has God made us His own? In mercy He gave us a hope and a future Beyond this mortal life of flesh and bone Music and Words by Joel Sczebel © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)

VERSE 1 We praise Your righteousness, O God Holy Judge of earth and heaven Forever just and without flaw Only doing what is right In Your kindness and Your mercy You've revealed to us Your law We praise Your righteousness, O God VERSE 2 We see Your righteousness, O God In the keeping of Your promise Your saving grace displayed to all To restore a world gone wrong As the threats of hell are silenced By the cry upon the cross We see Your righteousness, O God TAG Lord, You are just and You justify All who trust in the blood of Christ VERSE 3 We love Your righteousness, O God You have owned us as Your children Your gift to those that You have called Through no merits of our own And by faith we stand forgiven Joined to Jesus Christ, our all We love Your righteousness We see Your righteousness We praise Your righteousness, O God Music and Words by Bob Kauflin and Matt Papa © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 Hope that is seen is no hope at all Our hope is in what is to come Christ coming again to bring us to heav'n A glorious end to our fall The trials we face will fade When all our tears are washed away CHORUS Rejoice! Our hope is alive Alive in Him, the Son is risen Rejoice! One day we'll arise From death to life, our hope is alive in Christ VERSE 2 Hope isn't found in things we possess Nor found in the praises of men Our will to survive won't bring us new life We look past this world to the next Coming on the clouds We'll see the King and all will bow BRIDGE Rejoice! Our hope is alive in Christ Rejoice! Our hope is alive in Christ Rejoice! Our hope is alive Rejoice! Our hope is alive Rejoice! Our hope is alive in Christ Music and Words by Neil & Kate DeGraide © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)

VERSE 1 Blood-bought children who are suff'ring It won't be long, it won't be long Storm-tossed pilgrim, if you're struggling It won't be long, it won't be long VERSE 2 Though your flesh is now decaying It won't be long, it won't be long A new body God is making It won't be long, it won't be long CHORUS Glory awaits For all God's redeemed Glory awaits And we'll be free VERSE 3 All you saints now bound in prison It won't be long, it won't be long Here's your freedom: Christ is risen It won't be long, it won't be long VERSE 4 We are longing for Christ's appearing It won't be long, it won't be long Tears will vanish when we see Him It won't be long, it won't be long Music by Jon Underhill, Words by Jon Underhill and Bob Kauflin © 2013 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 What shall separate us from Your love? Can years of sorrow break eternal bonds? Can condemnation ever raise its voice? Against the pardon of the blood of Christ? Though our journey here is long This will be our triumph song CHORUS Nothing in all the earth Not any height above Could ever tear us from Your everlasting love Nothing in all the earth Not any height above Could ever tear us from Your everlasting love VERSE 2 What shall separate us from Your love? For, now the sting of death is overcome And all the powers of this world must fall Before Your feet because You rule them all Though our journey here is long This shall be our triumph song BRIDGE Nothing in all the earth Could ever tear us from Your everlasting love Music and Words by Joel Sczebel © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)

VERSE 1 We had turned from God to sin’s disgrace We chose the path to hell Perfect law of God condemned our race For all in Adam fell But the righteousness of God appeared And the world found hope again For the Righteous One has come down to bear All the curse of sin and death CHORUS Now to Him Who's seated on the throne All glory be forever Oh, the depths of wisdom, grace, and power All glory be forever All glory be forever VERSE 2 Every bond of sin that held us fast Is left in Jesus’ grave We’ve been freed from all that gripped our past From Satan’s rule and reign We’ve been raised to life to breathe again As captives now reclaimed All our guilt is gone, all our striving ceased We’re alive to seek His fame VERSE 3 Now our future’s fixed, our journey clear God will not let us go Every trial that tempts our hearts to fear He’ll use to give us hope All creation groans as we await What our eyes have longed to see Every pain and evil we’ve long endured Will be crushed by Christ our King Music and Words by Jordan Kauflin © 2013 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 You will save whom You will save We're the lost and helpless ones The rebels and the renegades Who spurned Your holy love You will save whom You will save Mercy will be magnified Everyone has gone astray And followed after lies But You have loved us and opened our eyes CHORUS It's Your grace From beginning to the end It's Your grace We will never comprehend Why You drew the ones who ran from You What can we do but offer You praise? VERSE 2 You will save whom You will save We were captive to our wills And if our hearts had not been changed We'd flee Your mercy still You will save whom You will save Who can question what You do? You're the potter, we're the clay You can make us as You choose And there is no one who boasts before You VERSE 3 You will save whom You will save Yet the promised hope remains You will rescue anyone Who calls upon Your name You will save whom You will save Faithful love won't be denied Christ has overcome the grave And for our sins He died And when He comes back His glory will shine Music and Words by Bob Kauflin and Doug Plank © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 This life is an altar Where I want to offer My soul and my mind and strength Cleansed by Your mercy to live a life worthy Of the One Who called my name CHORUS Jesus, be glorified Jesus, be magnified Let me be a pleasing sacrifice Jesus, be glorified Jesus, be magnified Here on the altar My life is an offering VERSE 2 How could I not love You? You authored my rescue Raised me up, from death to life Your Spirit is in me, revealing Your glory Oh what joy as I give my life BRIDGE I choose to lose my life, Lord And find it in You Music and Words by Pat and Joel Sczebel © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
14.
VERSE 1 Who has done good and who has sought God? We hated and cursed and called for Your blood We claimed to be wise as we gloried in shame We told ourselves lies, despising Your reign And love, Your love, was far from us And love, Your love, was far from us VERSE 2 Our mouths were like graves, our words were like darts Our bodies were slaves to the greed of our hearts We thirsted for life as we wasted our breath Entangled in strife, we rushed to our death And love, Your love, was far from us And love, Your love, was far from us VERSE 3 The foolish You loved, the faithless You saved The lost You have found, the worthless You raised The blood of Your cross and Your empty grave Made rebels to heirs and sinners to saints And love, Your love, has come to us And love, Your love, has come to us Music and words by Joel Sczebel © 2013 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
15.
VERSE 1 Have Your way with me, O God In the temple of my heart Let reverent love and holy awe Be lifted unto You The truth my inmost being claim Til sin and shadows flee away Teach my feet to love Your ways And run the way You choose VERSE 2 Have Your way with me, O Lord Sin's pleasures I cannot afford They left me destitute and poor Now all I want is Christ A passion for the gospel burns To love Your bride, the holy church Wash me with Your blood and Word Til I am sanctified VERSE 3 Holy Spirit, have Your way I look to You for strength and faith I need Your presence and Your grace To persevere this hour Complete in me what You've begun Keep me by Your sovereign love In my weakness, Spirit, come And fill me with Your power VERSE 4 Jesus, have Your way with me You bled for all who would believe Let my life become a seed And give me grace to die Display through my surrendered life Your selfless love and sacrifice Until Your glory fills the sky Be praised and glorified Music and words by Dale Bischof © 2013 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 Why should my doubts and questions rise With every passing storm? Why does my heart believe the lies That God would do me harm? To this madness and my unbelief My God, you have replied: "I've not spared my only Son from grief For you, for you He died!” VERSE 2 How deep, how full, how sweet the word That good shall come to pass That every sorrow, sovereign Lord Shall be transformed at last My mind cannot perceive the end Nor make sense of the means But on Christ the Lord my soul depends And on His promise leans VERSE 3 Take care, my soul, let praises rise When God wills strife or peace Forbid the unbelieving lies That overlook His grace Oh, sing again of Jesus Christ His cruel and bitter cross Come, give your all, pour out your life Count everything as loss VERSE 4 Now, what shall come between us, Lord And who can cut the ties That You have made by shedding blood With agonies and cries? Shall humans, devils, powers here Come take my source, my life? Have peace, my soul, cast off your fears The final word is Christ! Music and words by Doug Plank and Jonathan Jackson © 2013 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)/Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
