Songs and Scenes: Sunday, January 19, 2014


Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of songs, readings and prayers featured in The Crossing’s Sunday liturgy. This week, our friend, Scott Myers, provided photos to offer 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 when available.

1. Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words by Robert Robinson (1758), Music: NETTLETON, Wyeth’s Re­po­si­to­ry of Sac­red Mu­sic, Part Se­cond by John Wy­eth (1813), Based on an arrangement by Page CXVI

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Here by Thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home..
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood;


2. Before the Throne – Words: Charitie L. Bancroft (1863), Music: Vikki Cook, Arrangement: the Modern Post

We sang a fresh arrangement of this retuned hymn which moves the song from it’s original celtic feel (with a 3/4 time signature) into a more rock oriented 4/4 time signature. Dustin Kensrue (of the The Modern Post) said in a recent interview, “The gospel is the most timeless and timely of news—always. And as the church, we have the great joy of not only being recipients of this news, but its heralds as well.” Singing songs like “Before the Throne” is one of the ways we herald the gospel and encourage one another in our faith during our Sunday services.

When Satan tempts me to despair
and tells me of the guilt within
upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
my sinful soul is counted free
for God the just is satisfied
to look on Him and pardon me.


3. Suffering Servant by Dustin Kensrue

Though all of us have gone astray,
though all have turned to their own ways
the Lord has laid our wickedness on Him.
His punishment has brought us peace
and crushed for our iniquities.
He died to save his people from their sin.


4. Jesus Paid it All – Words: Elvina M. Hall (1865), Music: John T. Grape (1835-1915), Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone,
can change the leper’s spots
and melt the heart of stone.”

Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.


5. Here is Love – Words by William Rees (19th century); Music by Robert Lowry (1876); Additional chorus by Matt Redman

No love is higher, no love is wider,
no love is deeper, no love is truer.
No love is higher, no love is wider,
no love is like Your love, oh Lord!


6. How Deep the Father’s Love For Us by Stuart Townend, Arrangement: King’s Kaleidoscope

How deep the Father’s love for us,
how vast beyond all measure
that He should give His only Son
to make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss,
the Father turns His face away
as wounds which mar the chosen One
bring many sons to glory.
