VERSE 1 At the cross we see Your mercy Pouring forth in streams of blood At the cross we see compassion Flowing like a crimson flood At the cross we see our Savior And the beauty of His love, at the cross VERSE 2 At the cross we find forgiveness Making foul sinners clean At the cross we find Your power Setting captive prisoners free At the cross we find our Savior Who secured our victory, at the cross CHORUS We must sing Your praise, O God We must sing Your praise, O God We have met Your mercy And seen Your beauty How great Your glory at the cross VERSE 3 At the cross our debt is cancelled Paid in full when Jesus died At the cross our souls are ransomed Purchased with the blood of Christ At the cross our sin is conquered Heaven’s gates are opened wide at the cross Credits: Words and music by Stephen Altrogge © 2007 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 When I am afraid, I put my trust in You In God whose Word I praise, in God I trust In the shadow of Your wings, I will hide myself Until the furious storms have all passed TAG For You have kept count of all my wanderings Put all my tears into Your bottle My heart is steadfast, so I will sing CHORUS Be exalted, O God Above the heavens And over all the earth Be exalted, O God Above the heavens And over all, over all the earth VERSE 2 Be merciful to me, for You’re my only hope My refuge and my strength, I cry aloud I will cry to God Most High, who fulfills His plans for me Your faithfulness extends to the clouds Credits: Words and music by Mark Altrogge © 2007 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 You hid Your glory from our eyes A man of sorrows, man of suffering Became a servant born to die The Lamb of God, a perfect offering And at the hands of wicked men Your back plowed open by a cruel lash We crowned Your bleeding head with thorns You drank God’s foaming cup of holy wrath CHORUS To You belongs my heart To You belongs my praise To You belongs my love I’ll thank You all my days VERSE 2 For a good man someone might die Or give himself to save the righteous But You have shown Your love in this When we were still in sin You died for us Such wondrous love demands my all Such lavish grace is worthy of my life I’ll always owe this debt of love I give my heart to You, Lord Jesus Christ Credits: Words and music by Mark Altrogge © 2007 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 Whatever my God ordains is right In His love I am abiding I will be still in all He does And follow where He is guiding He is my God, though dark my road He holds me that I shall not fall And so to Him I leave it all VERSE 2 Whatever my God ordains is right He never will deceive me He leads me by the proper path I know He will not leave me I take content, what He has sent His hand can turn my griefs away And patiently I wait His day VERSE 3 Whatever my God ordains is right Here shall my stand be taken Though sorrow, or need, or death be mine Yet I am not forsaken My Father’s care circles me there He holds me that I shall not fall And so to Him I leave it all VERSE 4 Whatever my God ordains is right Though now this cup in drinking Bitter it seems to my faint heart I take it all unshrinking My God is true, each morn anew Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart And pain and sorrow shall depart Credits: Original words by Samuel Rodigast (1676), translated by Catherine Winkworth (1863), music and alternate words by Mark Altrogge © 2007 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 You met God's great fury In death You hid Your glory Source of life, You chose to die But death could not keep You Its power could not defeat You You're our King and You're alive CHORUS Hail the risen King Jesus Hail Him who reigns on high Hail the Conqueror and Victor Hail our God who lives that death may die Hail the risen King, hail the risen King Jesus Christ VERSE 2 Death's broken, sin's beaten The powers of hell defeated The Father's wrath is satisfied Now Your might and power Give strength for every hour You’re at work to change our hearts VERSE 3 You're coming, returning For those whose hearts are yearning For a glimpse of Your face We'll join with all races Our hearts will lift Your praises We will sing of all You've done Credits: Words and music by Stephen Altrogge © 2005 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 There’s a treasure great in beauty Far surpassing earth’s great wealth He is Jesus, Prince of Glory Source of all grace, peace, and health There’s a fountain ever flowing Satisfying all who drink He is Jesus, spring of joy To all who hail Him as their King VERSE 2 There’s a power, holy power Breaking bonds of captive men He is Jesus, mighty Jesus Holy warrior and sinner’s friend There’s a Savior rich in mercy Quick to pardon all our sins He is Jesus, great Redeemer Reconciling God and man VERSE 3 There’s a glorious Lord returning And all will bow to Him alone He is Jesus, King of nations Reigning from His gracious throne There is one to whom our praises Will through every age ascend He is Jesus, King forever Whose wondrous rule will never end Credits: Words and music by Stephen Altrogge © 2003 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 In a little while there’ll be no more tears In a little while In a little while pain will disappear In a little while In a little while the wait will be over In a little while the night will be past There’ll be singing, there’ll be dancing and laughter And we’ll see the Son at last CHORUS And we will see Your face with our own eyes We will gaze with our own eyes Full on Your glory, never have to look away And we will see Your face with our own eyes We will gaze with our own eyes Full on Your glory, never have to look away In a little while, a little while VERSE 2 In a little while there’ll be no more sin In a little while In a little while our joy will never end In a little while These momentary light afflictions They are storing up for us A glorious weight we can’t imagine Kept in heaven by God for us Credits: Words and music by Mark Altrogge © 2007 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 Jesus, I'm frail, I'm so very weak My faithfulness fails, my courage will flee But You are my rock, my shelter and shade When I'm burdened down, You'll carry the weight CHORUS So I will cast my cares on You Yes, I will cast my cares on You I will rest within Your arms Knowing I am safe from harm I will cast my cares on You VERSE 2 When I'm overwhelmed and I cannot stand You hear every cry and You lift my head I'm desperate for grace and mercy anew I must have Your strength, Oh I must have You Credits: Words and music by Stephen Altrogge © 2007 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 In the darkest hour I must face I’m counting on Your grace to give me all I need Sunless days and cheerless nights will pass And work their work at last to form Your joy in me For when I am weak I find that You are strong, and CHORUS All I really need is Your grace All I need to know is You are near me All I need is You All I really need is Your grace All I need to know is You are for me All I need is You All I need is You VERSE 2 Some may place their hope in feeble men I can’t do that again, for only You are strong I will pray to God who lifts my head To You who came and shed Your blood for all my wrongs For when I am weak I find that You are strong, and VERSE 3 Lord, I know You hear my every sigh You hear the raven’s cry and give the sparrow food How much more will You provide in love For those You bought with blood and work all things for good And when I am weak I find that You are strong, and Credits: Words and music by Mark Altrogge © 2006 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 Shut out the world with all its distractions All of its noise and empty attractions And shut me in, Lord To the presence of Your glory Shut out my cares and all of my worries All of my fears and all of my hurries And shut me in, Lord To the presence of Your glory CHORUS Only one thing is necessary Only one thing is necessary To sit at Your feet To sit at Your feet And gaze upon Your beauty VERSE 2 Shut out the lie that I can’t come near You You bought me with blood and taught me to fear You So shut me in, Lord To the presence of Your glory For here in Your presence my soul is satisfied Here in Your presence my soul finds all delight Here in Your presence my soul is thirsting for You Yes, I’m thirsting for You Credits: Words and music by Mark Altrogge © 2005 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 O Lord, You care for all the earth The flowers and the birds You provide their daily bread How much more You have cared for me You met my greatest need When Christ hung on the tree So I know that You’ll provide for me CHORUS So God, I trust in You I trust in You, I trust in You In whatever I may face I will trust Your sovereign grace I will always trust in You VERSE 2 O Lord, when all my hopes and plans Are taken from my hands And I cannot see the way I will rest in Your sovereign plan And bless Your gracious hand I know Your promise stands That I’ll see Your goodness in this land Credits: Words and music Stephen Altrogge © 2005 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

VERSE 1 Who can compare to You, Lord You are the great High King You are the Holy One Maker of all things We look at the stars in heaven You bring each one out by name Because of Your mighty power Every one remains CHORUS How great, how glorious How strong, how awesome How good, how loving You are VERSE 2 Why should we ever wonder If we’re hidden from Your eyes You bought us with Your own blood We can trust in Christ And we will mount up like eagles Held by Your mighty grace Keeping our eyes on Jesus The author of our faith Credits: Words and music by Mark Altrogge © 2007 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

about

Mark has been senior pastor of Saving Grace Church (Indiana, PA) since 1982. Over more than 25 years he’s written hundreds of songs for worship, including “I Stand in Awe” and “I’m Forever Grateful.”

Stephen began songwriting as a teenager, and his songs have recently appeared on Sovereign Grace albums such as Valley of Vision and Worship God Live.

The songs on In a Little While range from the upbeat, electric-guitar-driven “At the Cross” to “Whatever My God Ordains Is Right,” a gentle rendition of a seventeenth-century hymn. All reflect the hope found where daily life meets biblical truth.
