This week’s music set-list review features photos by Scott Myers and was planned and lead by guest worship leader Rhett Johnson. You’ll find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase versions of the songs as recorded by the original artists.

He is Yahweh by Dean Salyn.

This is a song that we’ve been singing at The Crossing since 2003 and paints a picture of God’s sovereignty that is reminiscent of Isaiah 40.

Who is moving on the waters?
Who is holding up the moon?
Who is peeling back the darkness
with the burning light of noon?

Who is standing on the mountains?
Who is on the earth below?
Who is bigger than the heavens
and the lover of my soul?

Heavenly Father, Beautiful Son by Mark Altrogge

Mark Altrogge, a pastor and songwriter for Sovereign Grace Ministries, wrote this song highlighting the unique, yet complementary, role each person in the Trinity plays in our salvation.

Father, You loved me,
sent Your Son to redeem.
Jesus, You washed me

by Your blood I am clean.
Spirit, You’ve opened these blinded eyes
and brought me to Christ.

Heavenly Father, Beautiful Son was based on the prayer, The Trinity, which we also read corporately. The prayer is from The Valley of Vision, a collection of 16th century Puritan prayers, and is a highly recommended resource for personal prayer. You can find a copy in The Crossing’s bookstore.

Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Additional chorus: Page CXVI

The sobering lyrics of this hymn give us a deeper understanding of our desperate need of Christ’s finished work on the cross.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to thy Cross I cling;
Naked, come to thee for dress;
Helpless, look to thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Saviour, or I die.

Christ is Risen by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes

Let no one caught in sin remain
inside the lie of inward shame
but fix our eyes upon the cross
and run to Him who showed great love
and bled for us.
Freely You’ve bled for us.

Awakening by Chris Tomlin and Reuben Morgan

Awakening served as a prayer that the Holy Spirit would not only work in our hearts but in the hearts of all the nations.

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
