VERSE 1 You’re the One who flung the stars Across the heavens and You are The One Who spoke And mountains rose Above the foaming seas You’re the One who sends the rain And golden sun to drench the plains And gracious God You always pour Such favor out on me CHORUS You are the One Who does awesome things You are the One Who works wonders You are the One Who does awesome things You are the One who Works wonders And You are, You are, the One I love VERSE 2 You’re the One whose bleeding head Was crowned with thorns and in my stead You took God’s wrath And died my death That I might live Your life And as I fix my gaze on You I’m captivated by the view Becoming ever Like the One Whose glory fills my eyes

VERSE 1 Spirit how we hunger For Your presence With nothing else Will we be satisfied How we long to taste Your lavish goodness And fill our souls with Heaven’s bread of life And so we come to You With great anticipation Knowing how You love Our celebration overflows CHORUS We’ve come to feast at Your table Feast at Your table And drink from Your Fountain of delights We’ve come to feast at Your table Feast at Your table In our joy You are glorified We’ve come to feast VERSE 2 Father You’ve prepared For us a banquet In honor of the Victory of Your Son For He secured the way For our communion That we could know the Fullness of Your love And so we come to You With great anticipation Knowing how You love Our celebration overflows

CHORUS Better by far is Your presence Better by far is Your Spirit Nothing compares To Your love poured out in my heart Better by far is Your presence Better by far is Your Spirit Nothing compares To Your love poured out in my heart It’s better by far VERSE 1 Better by far To be near You Than be freed from all of my trials Better by far That You make me like Christ Than to give me all I desire VERSE 2 Better by far Just to know You Than be blessed in all other ways Better by far That You work in my life To the praise of Your glory and grace

CHORUS Who am I to draw near You What have I oh Lord to give You Just the grateful heart of a sinner Who loves grace Who am I Lord to know You What have I oh Lord to show You Just the grateful heart of a sinner Who loves grace VERSE 1 I love Your grace because it draws me And teaches me to hate my sin I love Your grace amazing The strength of my life It triumphs again and again VERSE 2 I love Your grace because it saved me And changes me every day I love Your grace creating A hunger in me To know and walk in Your ways

VERSE 1 When the cares of life Come and darken my eyes There’s only You for me When my heart grows cold You bring fire to my soul There’s only You for me You’re all I desire Lord You’re all I need CHORUS I want only You for me No other God will I ever seek I want only You for me Through all of eternity There’ll be only You for me VERSE 2 When the way is hard And the valley dark There’s only You for me In my deepest loss I will cling to the Cross There’s only You for me In love’s Sovereign hand Is all I could need VERSE 3 As I run the race I will hope in Your grace There’s only You for me When my flesh has failed And I step through the veil There’s only You for me And I’ll fully know That You’re all I need

VERSE 1 Alas, and did my Savior bleed And did my Sovereign die? Would He devote that sacred head For such a worm as I? Was it for sins that I had done He groaned upon the tree? Amazing pity, grace unknown And love beyond degree CHORUS My God, why would You shed Your blood So pure and undefiled To make a sinful one like me Your chosen, precious child? 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 to tears

VERSE 1 How do I know You love me I look around and see The sunshine the rain And the wind in the trees But should these gracious tokens All fade from my sight I won’t doubt Your love For I fix my eyes CHORUS I look to the Cross Where I most clearly see Your awesome love displayed for me For even when I was dead in sin You died for me Oh I look to the Cross VERSE 2 How do I know You love me At times I’m so aware I sense Your Holy Spirit I see You everywhere But when I leave the mountain And Your face is hid from sight I won’t doubt Your love For I fix my eyes
8.
VERSE 1 Greater are You who lives in me Than any Goliath I must fight Greater than all my enemies Using what they mean for harm For good in my life and CHORUS Greater are You living in me Than he who’s in the world You move the mountains You part the seas To You belongs the rule And dominion forever And dominion forever amen VERSE 2 Greater are You who lives in me Than any afflictions that arise Greater are You than all my trials They are but tools in Your hand To make me like Christ and
