riverman74 I love listening and singing along to all the Together for the Gospel Live albums. This is my favorite hymn on this album and I listen over and over several times until moving on to the next hymn. Favorite track: Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed?.

Daniel Poe A beautiful album containing old and new hymns sung by 10000 people gathering to sing praises to God! Just like T4G I and II, it's simply amazing! Favorite track: Be Thou My Vision.

Tim Cook Attending T4G was one of the greatest things I have ever experienced, and the worship was the highlight of that experience. I can't wait to listen to the loseless version of this album, and just close my eyes and sing.

Susiq3 One of my favorites! This music has been with me through difficult times and helped me to hide God's word in my heart. I can't wait to receive the new album.

Give to our God immortal praise; Mercy and truth are all His ways; Wonders of grace to God belong; Repeat His mercies in your song. He built the earth, He spread the sky, And fixed the starry lights on high; Wonders of grace to God belong; Repeat His mercies in your song. He fills the sun with morning light, He bids the moon direct the night; His mercies ever shall endure When suns and moons shall shine no more. He sent His Son with pow’r to save From guilt and darkness and the grave; Wonders of grace to God belong; Repeat His mercies in your song. Through this vain world He guides our feet And leads us to His heav’nly seat; His mercies ever shall endure When this our world shall be no more. Words: Isaac Watts Music: John Hatton Public Domain
His Forever 02:58
Jesus, friend of sinners, Loved me ere I knew Him, Drew me with His cords of love, Tightly bound me to Him. ’Round my heart, still closely twined, The ties that none can sever. For I am His and He is mine Forever and forever. Jesus, friend of sinners, A crown of thorns You wore for me, Bruised for my transgressions, Pierced for my iniquities. The wrath of God that I deserved Was poured out on the Innocent. He took my place, my soul to save. Now I am His forever. Jesus, friend of sinners, I love to tell the story; Redeeming love has been my theme And will be when in glory. Not death, nor life, nor anything Can ever separate me. Oh, love that will not let me go, Yes, I am His forever. Original words: James G. Small (1863) Music and new and alternate words: Pat Sczebel © 2003 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
VERSE 1 See the destined day arise! See a willing sacrifice! Jesus, to redeem our loss, Hangs upon the shameful cross; Jesus, who but You could bear Wrath so great and justice fair, Every pang and bitter throe, Finishing Your life of woe? CHORUS Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Lamb of God for sinners slain! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Jesus Christ, we praise Your name! VERSE 2 Who but Christ had dared to drain, Steeped in gall, the cup of pain, And with tender body bear Thorns and nails and piercing spear? Slain for us, the water flowed, Mingled from Your side with blood; Sign to all attesting eyes Of the finished sacrifice. VERSE 3 Holy Jesus, grant us grace In that sacrifice to place All our trust for life renewed, Pardoned sin, and promised good. Grant us grace to sing Your praise ‘Round Your throne through endless days, Ever with the sons of light, “Blessing, honor, glory, might!” CREDITS Original words: Venantius Fortunatus (c.530-600), tr.

VERSE 1 Alas! and did my Savior bleed Snd did my Sovereign die? Would He devote that sacred head For such a worm as I? Was it for crimes that I had done He groaned upon the tree? Amazing pity, grace unknown, And love beyond degree! 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 with tears. VERSE 3 But drops of grief can ne’er repay The debt of love I owe; Here, Lord, I give myself away, ‘Tis all that I can do. Alas! and did my Savior bleed And did my Sovereign die? Amazing pity, grace unknown, And love beyond degree! CREDITS Words: Isaac Watts Music: Irish tune Public Domain
Not in Me 03:00
VERSE 1 No list of sins I have not done, No list of virtues I pursue, No list of those I am not like Can earn myself a place with You. O God, be merciful to me– I am a sinner through and through! My only hope of righteousness Is not in me, but only You. VERSE 2 No humble dress, no fervent prayer, No lifted hands, no tearful song, No recitation of the truth Can justify a single wrong. My righteousness is Jesus’ life, m My debt was paid by Jesus’ death, My weary load was borne by Him And He alone can give me rest. No separation from the world, No work I do, no gift I give Can cleanse my conscience, cleanse my hands; I cannot cause my soul to live. But Jesus died and rose again– The power of death is overthrown! My God is merciful to me And merciful in Christ alone. TAG My righteousness is Jesus’ life, m My debt was paid by Jesus’ death, My weary load was borne by Him And He alone can give me rest. CREDITS Words and music: Eric Schumacher and David L.

VERSE 1 Stricken, smitten, and afflicted, See Him dying on the tree! ‘Tis the Christ by man rejected; Yes, my soul, ‘tis He, ‘tis He! ‘Tis the long-expected Prophet, David’s son, yet David’s Lord; By His Son God now has spoken: ‘Tis the true and faithful Word. VERSE 2 Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning, Was there ever grief like His? Friends through fear His cause disowning, Foes insulting His distress; Many hands were raised to wound Him, None would interpose to save; But the deepest stroke that pierced Him Was the stroke that Justice gave. VERSE 3 Ye who think of sin but lightly, Nor suppose the evil great, Here may view its nature rightly, Here its guilt may estimate. Mark the sacrifice appointed, See who bears the awful load; ‘Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed, Son of Man and Son of God. VERSE 4 Here we have a firm foundation; Here the refuge of the lost; Christ, the Rock of our salvation, His the name of which we boast. Lamb of God, for sinners wounded, Sacrifice to cancel guilt! None shall ever be confounded Who on Him their hope have built. CREDITS Words: Thomas Kelly Music: O Mein Jesu, Ich Muss Sterben
VERSE 1 When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast; When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast. I could never keep my hold Through life’s fearful path; For my love is often cold; He must hold me fast. REFRAIN He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast; For my Savior loves me so, He will hold me fast. VERSE 2 Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold me fast; Precious in His holy sight, He will hold me fast. He’ll not let my soul be lost; His promises shall last; Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast. VERSE 3 For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast; Justice has been satisfied; He will hold me fast. Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast ‘Till our faith is turned to sight When He comes at last! CREDITS Words: vv. 1-2 Ada Habershon (1861-1918), Public Domain.

VERSE 1 Dear refuge of my weary soul, On Thee, when sorrows rise, On Thee, when waves of trouble roll, My fainting hope relies. To Thee I tell each rising grief, For Thou alone canst heal; Thy Word can bring a sweet relief For every pain I feel. VERSE 2 But oh! When gloomy doubts prevail, I fear to call Thee mine; The springs of comfort seem to fail, And all my hopes decline. Yet, gracious God, where shall I flee? Thou art my only trust; And still my soul would cleave to Thee Though prostrate in the dust. VERSE 3 Hast Thou not bid me seek Thy face, And shall I seek in vain? And can the ear of sov’reign grace Be deaf when I complain? No, still the ear of sov’reign grace Attends the mourner’s prayer; O may I ever find access To breathe my sorrows there. VERSE 4 Thy mercy seat is open still, Here let my soul retreat; With humble hope attend Thy will, And wait beneath Thy feet. Thy mercy seat is open still, Here let my soul retreat; With humble hope attend Thy will, And wait beneath Thy feet. CREDITS Words: Anne Steele (1716-1778), Public Domain.

VERSE 1 Eternal God, unchanging, Mysterious and unknown; Your boundless love, unfailing, In grace and mercy shown. Bright seraphim in ceaseless flight Around Your glorious throne; They raise their voices day And night in praise to You alone! CHORUS Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God! Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God! VERSE 2 Lord, we are weak and frail And are helpless in the storm; Surround us with Your angels And hold us in Your arms. Our cold and ruthless enemy, His pleasure is our harm. Rise up, O Lord, and he will flee Before our sovereign God. VERSE 3 Let every creature in the sea And every flying bird, Let every mountain, every field, And valley of the earth, Let all the moons and all the stars In all the universe Sing praises to the living God Who rules them by His Word.

The Together for the Gospel conference, held every other year since 2006 in Louisville, KY, emerged from a friendship between four
pastors of diverse denominational backgrounds. Their secondary theological differences, while important, didn’t keep them from
celebrating their shared passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Similar to the first two T4G Live albums, Together for the Gospel
Live III sets that passion to song. It contains a variety of hymns–
old and new, familiar and unfamiliar–with theologically driven
lyrics and timeless melodies.

Hymns remain unique in their ability to provide doctrinal fuel for
our emotional fire. They help us “feel the truth,” and can enable
congregations of multiple generations to express their unity in
the gospel.

While Psalm 150 cites a number of instruments used to praise God, we went with just one piano for this recording. The centerpiece is 10,000 voices lifting up praises to the only God through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.

We hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as we did
singing them. More importantly, we’d like it best if you joined your heart and voice with ours to praise our glorious and gracious God whose mercies are never ending in the Savior.
