Do you live with a nagging suspicion of God?

Many Christians understand that Jesus died in our place to take our punishment, that our sins have been forgiven, and that one day Christ will return. But inwardly we can be tempted to wonder whether God truly loves us, cares about us, or even thinks about us.

The gospel has brought us amazing news, but sometimes we don’t live in the good of it.

These songs are meant to direct our attention to the unfathomable love God has shown us in adopting us through Jesus Christ (Eph. 1:5). We are now part of God’s family—in Christ we will forever be the objects of God’s particular and passionate mercy and love. That biblical reality, rather than leaving us focused on ourselves, drives us once again to proclaim the greatness of the God whose grace turns hopeless rebels into precious children.

“And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!” (Gal. 4:6)

Track Name: The Prodigal
Verse 1
You held out Your arms, I walked away
Insolent, I spurned Your face
Squandering the gifts You gave to me
Holding close forbidden things
Destitute, a rebel still, a fool in all my pride
The world I once enjoyed is death to me
No joy, no hope, no life

Verse 2
Where now are the friends that I had bought
Gone with every penny lost
What hope could there be for such as I
Sold out to a world of lies
Oh to see Your face again, it seems so distant now
Could it be that You would take me back
A servant in Your house

Verse 3
You held out Your arms, I see them still
You never left, You never will
Running to embrace me, now I know
Your cords of love will always hold
Mercy’s robe, a ring of grace
Such favor undeserved
You sing over me and celebrate
The rebel now Your child

Track Name: Completely Done
Verse 1
What reason have I to doubt
Why would I dwell in fear
When all I have known is grace
My future in Christ is clear

Verse 2
My sins have been paid in full
There’s no condemnation here
I live in the good of this
My Father has brought me near
I’m leaving my fears behind me now

The old is gone, the new has come
What You complete is completely done
We’re heirs with Christ, the victory won
What You complete is completely done

Verse 3
I don’t know what lies ahead
What if I fail again
You are my confidence
You’ll keep me to the end
I’m leaving my fears behind me now
Track Name: The Father's Love
Verse 1
How has the sinner been forgiven
How has the rebel been made clean
Or blinded eyes been made to see
How have the orphans been adopted
Who hated Your love and ran from grace
Despised and rejected all Your ways

How wonderful the Father’s love
The Father’s love for us
That He would send His only Son
To come and rescue us
He has saved us, called us blameless
Guides us now and will sustain us
Oh how wonderful the Father’s love

Verse 2
Your mercy floods our lives with kindness
Your grace has colored all we see
And You have promised not to leave
You freely give Your Spirit to us
So we can be sure we’re sons of God
And rest in the hope of what’s to come

Though sufferings may fill our lives
We’re confident we’re heirs with Christ
And so we cry, “Abba, Father”
Track Name: God Delights in You
Verse 1
Calling every daughter
Calling every son
All who’ve been adopted
Through a sacrifice of love
There’s no need for you to fear
Your debts have all been cleared

Verse 2
Calling all the downcast
Who feel like they’re alone
Anyone who’s longing
For a family of their own
God’s prepared a place for you
He’s calling you to

Come and sing, come and dance
The Father’s singing over you
Come rejoice and be glad
For God delights in you, in you

Verse 3
Calling all who’ve wandered
Gone off on their own
Anyone who wonders
If they’re welcome back at home
The God of grace makes all things new
He’s calling you to

You chose us to be the objects of Your love
In spite of all we have done
You gave Your beloved Son to die for us
To make us daughters and sons
Track Name: The Greatest of All
Verse 1
The greatest of all transactions
The costliest purchase price
Father, Your Son’s atoning death
Was given in payment for mine
To buy me back from slavery
To set me free from my chains

Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
Redeemed through Your infinite mercy
Your child forever I am

Verse 2
Now I’ll never know Your judgment
You ransomed and saved my soul
Jesus, Your death and Yours alone
Has canceled the debt that I owed
You satisfied the law’s demand
And new life’s been given to me
Track Name: Precious Children
Verse 1
Broken and defiled
Clinging to our filth
We gloried in our shame
Running far from You
Still Your mercy sought and saved us

We belong to You
You have washed our stains
And have raised us up with Christ
Precious children in Your eyes

Verse 2
You gave Your only Son
Your joy and Your delight
You nailed Him to the cross
You crushed Him for our sin
How could you love us like You love Him
Track Name: You Gave Your Son
Verse 1
Father, compassionate and tender
Your ears are ever open to my prayers
Father, You feed the crying ravens
You daily lift the burdens that I bear
So I will thank You for Your mercy

You gave Your Son
Righteous One for the defiled
You gave Your Son
By His blood we’re reconciled
To our God

Verse 2
Father, You know that I grow weary
I need You to draw near me and be my strength
Father, I long to know Your presence
For You’re the joy of heaven and my King
So I will thank You for Your mercy

Whom have I in heaven but You
And none on earth compares with You
Track Name: We Sing
Verse 1
We’ve come together in Your name
We’ve come together to proclaim
How great You are
Once we were going our own ways
Now we’re a people for Your praise
How great You are

We sing as sons and daughters
Sing to God our Father
All because of Jesus
We sing, His blood has bought us
Sing, Your mercy called us
All because of Jesus we sing

Verse 2
Jesus, You’re powerful to save
Jesus, You’ve risen from the grave
How great You are
Your blood gave us peace with God
Your love has broken down our walls
How great You are

By grace we have been saved
To be Your dwelling place
You took our curse and made us one
It’s nothing we could do
Our only boast is You
So we rejoice in what You’ve done
Track Name: Undying Love
Verse 1
My ears had heard of You, now I have seen
This bitter sweetness in Your agony
My heart was far from You, but You drew me near
With loving kindness dried every tear

And I can see You
Bearing all my shame on the cross
I can hear You cry out, “It is done”
O Jesus, Your sacrifice was more than enough
In Your death I see undying love

Verse 2
My heart is broken and I’m down on my knees
To see my Savior suffering for me
But You descended, lifting me up
Washing my feet, filling my cup
Track Name: You Made Us Your Own
Verse 1
We were ruined in our sin
We were guilty and undone
When Your love reached down with sovereign hands
And beckoned us to come

Verse 2
You sought out the wanderers
Made the prodigals come home
With a lavish feast You welcomed us
For You made us Your own

You have loved us like You love Your Son
We are heirs with Christ, bought by His blood
Oh how great the love that we’ve been shown
We’re Your children now, You made us Your own

Verse 3
We are strangers to the world
But no strangers to Your throne
We draw near You now with confidence
For all our fears are gone

Verse 4
And when Christ our King returns
We’ll meet saints we’ve never known
And forever we will be amazed
That You made us Your own
Track Name: Prepared a Place
Verse 1
Mystery of mysteries
That God would make for me
A place within His family, though once His enemy
The Judge of every sinner sent Christ to Calvary
To prepare a place for me

Verse 2
Judgment should be given
For this guilt upon my head
But the Father of all glory crushed His Son instead
Now I’ve been adopted, for God made this to be
You prepared a place for me

Blessed be, blessed be
My God and Savior, You’ve shown me favor
And prepared a place for me

Verse 3
Father, in the moment
When Your Son shall split the skies
And myriads of angels acclaim Him with their cries
By grace I will be able to join the jubilee
You prepared a place for me
Track Name: You Never Change
Verse 1
Father of lights, giver of gifts
There is no shadow in You
Author of life, Fountain of grace
Each morning Your mercies are new

And You never change, and You never lie
Age to age You are the same
I will trust in You, all Your faithfulness
For I know You never change

Verse 2
Father of love, source of all good
Tower of strength and my shield
When You gave Your Son for those who rebelled
Your love for the world was revealed

Verse 3
Father of peace, help of the weak
Though mountains fall into the sea
Though tempests may rage, the sun hide its face
Your favor will rest upon me
