BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD ABOVE

[Verse 1]
Before the throne of God above,
I have a strong, a perfect plea,
A great High Priest,
Whose name is love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

My name is written on His hands,
My name is hidden in His heart;
I know that while in heaven He stands,
No power can force me to depart;
No power can force me to depart.

[Verse 2]
When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
I look to heaven, and see Him there,
Who made an end of all my sin.

Because the sinless Saviour died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the just, is satisfied,
To look on Him and pardon me;
To look on Him and pardon me.

[Verse 3]
Behold Him there! The risen Lamb,
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I Am,
The King of glory and of grace!

One with Himself, I cannot die,
My soul is purchased by His blood;
My life is safe with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Saviour and my God;
With Christ, my Saviour and my God.

BEHOLD OUR GOD

[Verse 1]
Who has held the oceans in His hand?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice

[Chorus]
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!

[Verse 2]
Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the one who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

[Chorus]
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!

[Verse 3]
Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign

[Chorus]
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!

[Bridge]
You will reign forever! (Let Your glory fill the earth)
[x4]

[Chorus]
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!

BENEATH THE CROSS

[Verse 1]
Beneath the cross of Jesus,
I find a place to stand,
And wonder at such mercy
That calls me as I am;
For hands that should discard me,
Hold wounds which tell me, “Come.”
Beneath the cross of Jesus
my unworthy soul is won.

[Verse 2]
Beneath the cross of Jesus,
His family is my own
Once strangers chasing selfish dreams,
Now one through grace alone.
How could I now dishonour,
The ones that You have loved?
Beneath the cross of Jesus
see the children called by God.

[Verse 3]
Beneath the cross of Jesus,
The path before the crown
We follow in His footsteps
Where promised hope is found.
How great the joy before us
To be His perfect bride;
Beneath the cross of Jesus
We will gladly live our lives.

BE THOU MY VISION

[Verse 1]
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.

[Verse 2]
Be Thou my Wisdom,
and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee
and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father,
I Thy true son,
Thou in me dwelling,
and I with Thee one.

[Verse 3]
Riches I heed not,
nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance,
now and always;
Thou and Thou only,
first in my heart,
High King of heaven,
my Treasure Thou art.

[Verse 4]
High King of heaven,
my victory won,
May I reach heaven’s joys,
O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart,
whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

BE UNTO YOUR NAME

[Verse 1]
We are a moment, You are forever;
Lord of the ages, God before time.
We are a vapour, You are eternal;
Lord everlasting, reigning on high.

[Chorus]
Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty;
Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain.
Highest praises, honour and glory;
Be unto Your name,
Be unto Your name.

[Verse 2]
We are the broken,
You are the healer;
Jesus, Redeemer, mighty to save.
You are the love song,
we’ll sing forever;
Bowing before You,
blessing Your name.

[Chorus]
Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty;
Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain.
Highest praises, honour and glory;
Be unto Your name,
Be unto Your name.

BLESSED ASSURANCE

[Verse 1]
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

[Chorus]
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.

[Verse 2]
Perfect submission, perfect delight!
Visions of rapture
now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

[Chorus]
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.

[Verse 3]
Perfect submission – all is at rest,
I in my Saviour am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

[Chorus]
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.

BLESS THE LORD OH MY SOUL
(10,000 REASONS)

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

[Verse 1]
The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

[Verse 2]
You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

[Verse 3]
And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

BY FAITH

[Verse 1]
By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creations grand design
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness
Who walk by faith and not by sight.

[Verse 2]
By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts
Of a holy city built by Gods own hand
A place where peace and justice reign

[Chorus]
We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him, our souls reward
Till the race is finished and the Work is done
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight

[Verse 3]
By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave

[Verse 4]
By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to Preach good news
In every corner of the earth

[Chorus]
We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him, our souls reward
Till the race is finished and the Work is done
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight

[Verse 5]
By faith this mountain shall be Moved
And the power of the gospel shall Prevail
For we Know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His name

[Chorus]
We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him, our souls reward
Till the race is finished and the Work is done
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight
