You Have Redeemed My Soul
by Don and Lori Chafer, Arranged by Page CXVI

I was a hungry child, a dried up river.
I was a burned out forest
and no one could do anything for me.
But You put food in my body, water in my dry bed,
and to my blackened branches
you brought the springtime green of new life
and nothing is impossible for You.

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed
– Words: James Montgomery (1821), Music and Arrangement: Vito Aiuto (2008)

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free;
To take away transgression and rule in equity.
