about

Mark has been senior pastor of Sovereign 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.

Track Name: At the Cross
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

Track Name: Be Exalted, O God
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

Track Name: All My Days
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

Track Name: Whatever My God Ordains Is Right
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

Track Name: Hail the Risen King
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

Track Name: He Is Jesus
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

Track Name: In a Little While
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

Track Name: I Will Cast My Cares
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

Track Name: All I Really Need
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

Track Name: Only One Thing
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

Track Name: You'll Provide for Me
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

Track Name: How Great, How Glorious
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

And pain and sorrow shall depart
