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

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.

2. Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words by Robert Robinson (1758), Music: NETTLETON, John Wy­eth (1813), Arrangement: The Journey Collective

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

3. It’s You by Dave Wilton and Asher Seevinck

Son of man
reach out your hand
and touch my weary heart.
Son of man
reach out your hand
and heal my failing heart.
It’s you that I need.

4. Abide by Liz Vice

Jesus we will throw away our lives to follow you
Struggling in your strength, resting in your truth
Jesus, you’re so beautiful, you give vision to the blind
You in us, the hope of glory, in you we will abide

5. I Want to Run by The Crossing Music featuring Rahlo

Let us throw off everything that hinders
and the sin that so easily entangles,
and let us run with perseverance
the race marked out for us.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus.
