ABOVE ALL

[Verse 1]
Above all powers, above all kings,
Above all nature and all created things.
Above all wisdom
and all the ways of man,
You were here before the world began.

[Verse 2]
Above all kingdoms, above all thrones,
Above all wonders
the world has ever known.
Above all wealth
and treasures of the earth,
There’s no way to measure
what You’re worth.

[Chorus]
Crucified, laid behind a stone,
You lived to die rejected and alone;
Like a rose, trampled on the ground,
You took the fall and showed Your love,
Above all.


ACROSS THE LANDS

[Verse 1]
You’re the Word of God the Father
From before the world began.
Every star and every planet
Has been fashioned by Your hand.
All creation holds together
By the power of Your voice.
Let the skies declare Your glory;
Let the land and seas rejoice!

[Chorus]
You’re the Author of creation;
You’re the Lord of every man;
And Your cry of love rings out
across the lands.

[Verse 2]
Yet You left the gaze of angels,
Came to seek and save the lost,
And exchanged the joy of heaven
For the anguish of a cross.
With a prayer You fed the hungry;
With a word You calmed the sea;
Yet how silently You suffered
That the guilty may go free!

[Chorus]
You’re the Author of creation;
You’re the Lord of every man;
And Your cry of love rings out
across the lands.

[Verse 3]
With a shout You rose victorious,
Wresting victory from the grave,
And ascended into heaven,
Leading captives in Your way.
Now You stand before the Father,
Interceding for Your own;
From each tribe and tongue and nation,
You are leading sinners home!

[Chorus]
You’re the Author of creation;
You’re the Lord of every man;
And Your cry of love rings out
across the lands.


ALL GLORY BE TO CHRIST

[Verse 1]
Should nothing of our efforts stand, no legacy survive
Unless the Lord does raise the house in vain, it’s builders strive
To you who boast tomorrows gain, tell me what is your life
A mist that vanishes at dawn, all glory be to Christ

[Chorus 1]
All glory be to Christ our King, all glory be to Christ
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing, all glory be to Christ

[Verse 2]
His will be done, His kingdom come, on earth as is above
Who is Himself our daily bread, praise Him the Lord of love
Let living water satisfy the thirsty without price
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet, all glory be to Christ

[Chorus 2]
All glory be to Christ our King, all glory be to Christ
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing, all glory be to Christ

[Verse 3]
When on that day the Great I am, the faithful and the true
The Lamb who was for sinners slain, is making all things new
Behold our God shall live with us, and be our steadfast light
And we shall ere His people be, all glory be to Christ

[Chorus 3]
All glory be to Christ our King, all glory be to Christ
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing, all glory be to Christ


ALL MY DAYS

[Verse 1]
All my days
I will sing this song of gladness,
Give my praise
to the fountain of delights;
For in my helplessness
You heard my cry,
And waves of mercy
poured down on my life.

[Verse 2]
I will trust
in the cross of my Redeemer,
I will sing
of the blood that never fails;
Of sins forgiven,
of conscience cleansed,
Of death defeated
and life without end.

[Chorus]
Beautiful Saviour,
Wonderful Counselor,
Clothed in majesty,
Lord of history,
You’re the Way,
the Truth, the Life.

Star of the Morning,
glorious in holiness,
You’re the Risen One,
heaven’s Champion,
And You reign,
You reign over all!

[Verse 3]
I long to be
where the praise is never ending,
Yearn to dwell
where the glory never fades;
Where countless worshippers
will share one song,
And cries of ‘worthy’
will honour the Lamb!

[Chorus]
Beautiful Saviour,
Wonderful Counselor,
Clothed in majesty,
Lord of history,
You’re the Way,
the Truth, the Life.

Star of the Morning,
glorious in holiness,
You’re the Risen One,
heaven’s Champion,
And You reign, You reign over all!


ALL THE WAY MY SAVIOUR LEADS ME

[Verse 1]
All the way my Saviour leads me
What have I to ask beside
Can I doubt His tender mercy
Who through life has been my guide
Heavenly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell
For I know what-e’er befall me,
Jesus do-eth all things well
For I know what – e’er befall me,
Jesus do-eth all things well

[Verse 2]
All the way my Saviour leads me
Cheers each winding path I tread
Gives me grace for every trial
Feeds me with the living bread
Tho my weary steps may falter
And my soul a-thirst may be
Gushing from the Rock before me
Lo! A spring of joy I see
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see

[Verse 3]
All the way my Saviour leads me
O’ the fullness of His love
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father’s house above
When my spirit clothed immortal
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song thru endless ages
Jesus led me all the way
This my song thru endless ages
Jesus led me all the way


ALWAYS FORGIVEN

[Verse 1]
I don’t deserve to be Your servant
And how much less to be Your child
Anger and wrath, sure condemnation
should be my portion, my just reward.
Never have seen it, never will know it
Your loving kindness enfolds my life.

[Chorus]
All You have shown me
is grace, love and mercy
Now and forever, I am Your child.
Freely You pour out Your loving kindness
Father of Grace, You welcome me in.

[Verse 2]
All of the sin I have committed
Was placed upon Your righteous Son
And now You see me through His perfection
As if I’ve never done any wrong
Always forgiven, always accepted
No fear of judgement before Your throne.

[Chorus]
All You have shown me is
Grace, love and mercy
Now and forever, I am Your child.
Freely You pour out Your loving kindness
Father of Grace, You welcome me in (x3)


AMAZING GRACE – HYMN

[Verse 1]
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me;
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

[Chorus 2]
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believed!

[Chorus 3]
The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

[Chorus 4]
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis grace that brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

[Chorus 5]
When we’ve been there a thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun.


AMAZING LOVE

[Verse 1]
I’m forgiven,
because You were forsaken.
And I’m accepted,
You were condemned.
And I’m alive and well,
Your Spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.

[Chorus]
Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true;
Now it’s my joy to honour You.
In all I do, I honour You.

[Verse 1]
I’m forgiven,
because You were forsaken.
And I’m accepted,
You were condemned.
And I’m alive and well,
Your Spirit is within me,
Because You died and rose again.

Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true;
Now it’s my joy to honour You.
In all I do, I honour You.

[Bridge]
You are my King, You are my King,
Jesus, You are my King,
You are my King.

[Chorus]
Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true;
Now it’s my joy to honour You.
In all I do, I honour You.


AMAZING LOVE (MY LORD…)

[Verse 1]
My Lord, what love is this,
that pays so dearly,
That I, the guilty one, may go free!

[Chorus]
Amazing love, O’ what sacrifice,
The Son of God, giv’n for me.
My debt He pays, and my death He dies,
That I might live, that I might live.

[Verse 2]
And so they watched Him die,
Despised, rejected;
But Oh, the blood He shed,
Flowed for me.

[Chorus]
Amazing love, O’ what sacrifice,
The Son of God, giv’n for me.
My debt He pays, and my death He dies,
That I might live, that I might live.

[Verse 3]
And still, this love of Christ,
It flows like rivers.
He saved, a wretch like me,
Gave me life!

[Chorus]
Amazing love, O’ what sacrifice,
The Son of God, giv’n for me.
My debt He pays, and my death He dies,
That I might live, that I might live.

And the mountains in reply
Echo back their joyous strains.

As the deer panteth for the water,
So my soul longeth after You.

To You alone may my spirit yield.

Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy giver,
And the apple of my eye.

To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship You.
