Awakening by Chris Tomlin and Reuben Morgan
In Your presence, in Your power, awakening.
For this moment, for this hour, awakening.
For You and You alone awake my soul;
Awake my soul and sing.
For the world You love Your will be done;
Let Your will be done in me.
Behold Our God by Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird and Stephen Altrogge
Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?
Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.
We heard God's word from Isaiah 55:6-7 (adapted by Eugene Peterson in The Message) which invites us to seek Him and turn away from the things that harden our hearts toward Him.
Seek God while he's here to be found,
pray to him while he's close at hand.
Let the wicked abandon their way of life
and the evil their way of thinking.
Let them come back to God, who is merciful,
come back to our God, who is lavish with forgiveness.
Rock of Ages - Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Contemporary chorus by Page CXVI (2009). Arrangement by Page CXVI and David Wilton
Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling.
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace.
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior or I die.
Here is Our King (chorus only) by David Crowder
Here is our King, here is our love,
here is our God who's come
to bring us back to Him.
He is the One, He is Jesus.
We heard the assurance of our forgiveness from Psalm 34:4-6, 8
I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Gloria by Chad Gardner
In an interview about his song, "Gloria," Chad Gardner said, "Christ delivers us, making us unashamed and radiant. When we really see who Christ is, when we actually taste his goodness and are overwhelmed, how else could we respond but with a resounding “Gloria!”
O taste and see that the Lord is good;
all you people, all you saints
all you children of the king.
Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!
Medley: When I Survey the Wondrous Cross - Words by Isaac Watts (1749), Music by Lowell Mason (1824)
When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.
Medley: Surrender by Marc James
I'm giving you my heart,
and all that is within,
I lay it all down for the sake of you my King.
I'm giving you my dreams,
I'm laying down my rights,
I'm giving up my pride for the promise of new life.
And I surrender all to You. All to You.
