Songs for Sunday, September 28, 2014

What songs might you sing and hear this Sunday? Glad you asked.  We’d like to say we’ll have the London Philharmonic, Matt Maher, and U2 joining us, but your robust singing will be more than ample in their absence.




Come Thou Almighty King

(Anonymous/Italian hymn)


Come, thou Almighty King,

Help us thy name to sing,

Help us to praise:

Father, all glorious,

O’er all victorious,

Come, and reign over us,

Ancient of days.


Come, thou Incarnate Word,

Gird on thy mighty sword,

Our prayer attend:

Come and thy people bless,

And give thy Word success;

Spirit of holiness,

On us descend.



Come, Holy Comforter,

Thy sacred witness bear

In this glad hour:

Thou who almighty art,

Now rule in every heart,

And ne’er from us depart,

Spirit of power.


To Thee great One in Three

Eternal praises be,

Hence evermore.

His sovereign majesty

May we in glory see,

And to eternity

Love and adore.

Lord, I Need You (M. Maher)


Lord, I come, I confess

Bowing here I find my rest

Without You I fall apart

You’re the One that guides my heart



Lord, I need You, oh, I need You

Every hour I need You

My one defense, my righteousness

Oh God, how I need You


Where sin runs deep Your grace is more

Where grace is found is where You are

And where You are, Lord, I am free

Holiness is Christ in me




Teach my song to rise to You

When temptation comes my way

And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You

Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

(Psalm 40/U2)


I waited patiently for the Lord

He turned and heard my cry

He brought me up out of the pit

Out of the miry clay


I will sing, sing a new song

I will sing, sing a new song


How long to sing this song?

How long to sing this song?

How long…how long…how long…

How long…   to sing this song?


He set my feet upon a rock

And made my footsteps firm

Many will see

Many will see and hear


I will sing, sing a new song

I will sing, sing a new song


How long to sing this song?

How long to sing this song?

How long…how long…how long…

How long…   Lord Jesus, come!

The Law of the Lord

(Psalm 19:7-11/Anon.)


The Law of the Lord is perfect,
converting the soul.

The testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple


More to be desired are they than gold,
yea, than much fine gold.

Sweeter also than honey
and the honeycomb.


The statutes of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart.

The commandments of the Lord are pure, enlightening the eyes.




The fear of the Lord is clean.
enduring forever.

The judgments of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.



final chorus

Moreover, by them is the servant warned,

is thy servant warned,
and in keeping of them is great reward.





In Christ Alone

(K. Getty/S. Townend)


In Christ alone my hope is found.

He is my light, my strength, my song

This Cornerstone, this solid ground,

Firm through the fiercest

drought & storm

What heights of love,

what depths of peace,

When fears are stilled,

when strivings cease

My Comforter, my All in All.

Here in the love of Christ I stand


In Christ alone, who took on flesh,

Fullness of God in helpless babe

This gift of love and righteousness,

Scorned by the ones He came to save

‘Til on that cross as Jesus died,

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin on Him was laid;

Here in the death of Christ I live


There in the ground His body lay,

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory

Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His and He is mine –

Bought with the precious blood of Christ


No guilt in life, no fear in death,

This is the power of Christ in me

From life’s first cry to final breath,

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man,

Can ever pluck me from His hand

‘Til he returns or calls me home,

Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
