Songs and Scenes from Sunday, May 12, 2013


Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of the songs and liturgy featured in The Crossing’s Sunday services. This week’s service was planned and lead by David Cover. Scott Myers provided photos to give a glimpse into Sunday morning life at The Crossing. You’ll also find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs where available.

Gathering Song: Surrender by Marc James, Alternate melody by David A. Cover

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.


David read Psalm 97:1-6 as a Call to Worship.

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.
Clouds and thick darkness surround him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him
and consumes his foes on every side.
His lightning lights up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all peoples see his glory.


God of Wonders by Marc Byrd and Steve Hindalong, Arrangement by The Crossing Music

Lord of all Creation,
of water, earth and sky,
the heavens are your tabernacle;
glory to the Lord on high.

God of wonders beyond our galaxy,
You are holy, holy;
The universe declares Your majesty.
You are holy, holy.


Holy, Holy, Holy – Words by Reginald Heber (1783-1826), Music: Nicaea, John B. Dykes (1861)

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.


I Fear the Lord by David A. Cover, Patrick K. Miller and Christine Cover

The beginning of strength,
in the fold of His might!
When I’m desperate and tried,
You’re the source of my life!

You are my God!
Help me walk in your wisdom’s way.
You are my God!
Father, teach my heart to obey.


Following a time of silent confession, we read Psalm 23 together.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord


The Lord Is by Pat Sczebel and Bob Kauflin (based on Psalm 23)

The depths of Your grace who can measure?
You fully supply all I need.
You restore my weary soul again and again,
and lead me in Your righteousness and peace.

The Lord is. The Lord is my Shepherd,
I shall not want.


Be Thou My Vision  – Traditional Irish hymn, Arranged by The Crossing Music

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heav’n’s Sun.
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.
