LEAD ME TO CALVARY

[Verse 1]
King of my life I crown You now
Yours shall the glory be
Lest I forget Your thorn-crowned brow
Lead me to Calvary

[Chorus]
Lest I forget Gethsemane
Lest I forget Your agony
Lest I forget Your love for me
Lead me to Calvary

[Verse 2]
Show me the tomb where You were laid
Tenderly mourned and wept
Angels in robes of light arrayed
Guarded You while You slept

[Chorus]
Lest I forget Gethsemane
Lest I forget Your agony
Lest I forget Your love for me
Lead me to Calvary

[Verse 3]
Let me like Mary thro’ the gloom
Come with a gift to Thee
Show to me now the empty tomb
Lead me to Calvary

[Chorus]
Lest I forget Gethsemane
Lest I forget Your agony
Lest I forget Your love for me
Lead me to Calvary

[Verse 4]
May I be willing Lord to bear
Daily my cross for You
Even Your Cup of grief to share
You have borne all for me

[Chorus]
Lest I forget Gethsemane
Lest I forget Your agony
Lest I forget Your love for me
Lead me to Calvary

LIKE A RIVER GLORIOUS

[Verse 1]
Like a river glorious, is God’s perfect peace,
Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
Perfect, yet it floweth, fuller every day,
Perfect, yet it groweth, deeper all the way.

[Chorus]
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

[Verse 2]
Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.

[Chorus]
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

[Verse 3]
Every joy or trial falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
We may trust Him fully all for us to do.
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.

[Chorus]
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

LORD I LIFT YOUR NAME ON HIGH

[Verse]
Lord I lift Your name on high,
Lord I love to sing Your praises.
I’m so glad You’re in my life,
I’m so glad You came to save us.

[Chorus]
You came from heaven to earth
to show the way,
From the earth to the cross,
my debt to pay,
From the cross to the grave,
From the grave to the sky,
Lord I lift Your name on high.

LORD I NEED YOU

[Verse 1]
Lord I come, I confess
Bowing here, I find my rest
Without You, I fall apart
You’re the One,  that guides my heart

[Chorus]
Lord, I need You, Oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
Lord, I need You, Oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

[Bridge]
Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
When I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

[Chorus]
Lord, I need You, Oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

You’re My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

LORD REIGN IN ME

[Verse 1]
Over all the earth,
You reign on high;
Every mountain stream,
every sunset sky;
But my one request,
Lord, my only aim
Is that You reign in me again.

[Chorus]
Lord, reign in me,
reign in Your pow’r
Over all my dreams,
in my darkest hour;
You are the Lord of all I am,
So won’t You reign in me again.

[Verse 2]
Over every thought,
over every word,
May my life reflect,
the beauty of my Lord;
‘Cause You mean more to me,
than any earthly thing,
So won’t You reign in me again.

[Chorus]
Lord, reign in me,
reign in Your pow’r
Over all my dreams,
in my darkest hour;
You are the Lord of all I am,
So won’t You reign in me again.

LOVED BEFORE THE DAWN OF TIME

[Verse 1]
Loved before the dawn of time
Chosen by my Maker,
Hidden in my Saviour:
I am His and He is mine,
Cherished for eter – nity.

[Verse 2]
When I’m stained with guilt and sin,
He is there to lift me,
Heal me and forgive me;
Gives me strength to stand again,
Stronger than I was before.

[Chorus]
So with ev – ‘ry breath that I am given
I will sing salvation’s song;
And I’ll join the chorus of creation
Giving praise to Christ alone.

[Verse 3]
All the chains of Satan’s curse
Lifted through His offering,
Satisfied through suffering;
All the blessings He deserves
Poured on my un- worthy soul.

[Chorus]
So with ev – ‘ry breath that I am given
I will sing salvation’s song;
And I’ll join the chorus of creation
Giving praise to Christ alone.

[Bridge]
Singing glory, honour, wisdom, power
To the Lamb upon the throne.
Hall – elujah, I will lift Him high.
Singing glory, honour, wisdom, power
To the Lamb upon the throne.
Hall – elujah, I will sing
with ev – ‘ry breath that I am given
I will sing salvation’s song;
And I’ll join the chorus of creation
Giving praise to Christ alone.

[Verse 4]
Stars will fade and mountains fall;
Christ will shine forever,
Love’s unfading splendour.
Earth and heaven will bow in awe,
Joining in sal- vation’s song.

LOVELY LORD

[Verse 1]
You are filled with compassion,
And mercy and grace,
With Your banner of love over me.
I am longing to see You
one day face to face,
And to be with You endlessly;
Lord how lovely You are to me.

[Chorus]
Lovely Lord, You are all to me;
Lovely Lord, full of purity.
Worthy of honour and majesty;
Lord how lovely You are to me.

[Verse 2]
You are bright as the sunrise,
And fairest of all;
Unto You all the glory will be.
You are God of creation,
And Lord of my life;
I will worship You faithfully;
Lord how lovely You are to me.

[Chorus]
Lovely Lord, You are all to me;
Lovely Lord, full of purity.
Worthy of honour and majesty;
Lord how lovely You are to me.

[Verse 3]
We will worship the Name
Of the Holiest One
We will worship Your excellency;
We will give You the glory
For things You have done
And be thankful eternally;
Lord how lovely You are to me.

[Chorus]
Lovely Lord, You are all to me;
Lovely Lord, full of purity.
Worthy of honour and majesty;
Lord how lovely You are to me.
