MEEKNESS AND MAJESTY

[Verse 1]
Meekness and majesty, Manhood and deity,
in perfect harmony,
The Man who is God.
Lord of eternity dwells in humanity,
Kneels in humility and washes their feet.

[Chorus]
O what a mystery,
meekness and majesty,
Bow down and worship,
for this is your God.

[Verse 2]
Father’s pure radiance, perfect in innocence,
Yet learns obedience,
to death on a cross.
Suffering to give us life,
Conquering through sacrifice,
And as they crucify, prays: “Father forgive.”

[Chorus]
O what a mystery,
meekness and majesty,
Bow down and worship,
for this is your God.

[Verse 3]
Wisdom unsearchable,
God the invisible,
Love indestructible in frailty appears.
Lord of infinity, stooping so tenderly,
Lifts our humanity
to the heights of His throne.

[Chorus]
O what a mystery,
meekness and majesty,
Bow down and worship,
for this is your God;
This is your God.

MORE LOVE TO THEE

[Verse 1]
More Love to Thee, O Christ,
More love to Thee!
Hear Thou the prayer I make,
On bended knee;
This is my earnest plea:
More love, O Christ to Thee,
More love to Thee, More love to Thee!

[Verse 2]
Once earthly joy I craved,
Sought peace and rest;
Now Thee alone I seek,
Give what is best;
This all my prayer shall be:
More love, O Christ to Thee,
More love to Thee, More love to Thee!

[Verse 3]
Then shall my latest breath
Whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry
My heart shall raise;
This still my prayer shall be:
More love, O Christ to Thee,
More love to Thee, More love to Thee!

LORD YOU ARE

Lord, You are more precious than silver;
Lord, You are more costly than gold;
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds;
And nothing I desire compares with You.

MY FAITH HAS FOUND A RESTING PLACE

[Verse 1]
My faith has found a resting place –
Not in device or creed:
I trust the Everliving One –
His wounds for me shall plead.

[Chorus]
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea;
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

[Verse 2]
Enough for me that Jesus saves –
This ends my fear and doubt;
A sinful soul I come to Him –
He’ll never cast me out.

[Chorus]
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea;
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

[Verse 3]
My heart is leaning on the Word –
The written Word of God:
Salvation by my Saviour’s name –
Salvation through His blood.

[Chorus]
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea;
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

[Verse 4]
My great Physician heals the sick –
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed –
For me His life He gave.

[Chorus]
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea;
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

MY HEART IS FILLED

[Verse 1]
My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who bore my pain;
Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace
and gave me life again;
Who crushed my curse of sinfulness
And clothed me in His light
And wrote His law of righteousness
With power upon my heart.

[Verse 2]
My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who walks beside;
Who floods my weaknesses with strengths
And causes fear to fly.
Whose every promise is enough
For every step I take.
Sustaining me with arms of love
And crowning me with grace.

[Verse 3]
My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who reigns above.
Whose wisdom is my perfect peace
Whose every thought is love.
For every day I have on earth
Is given by the King.
So I will give my life my all
To love and follow him.

MY HOPE IS BUILT

[Verse 1]
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

[Chorus]
On Christ the solid Rock I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.

[Verse 2]
When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his un – chang – ing grace;
In ev’ry high and stormy gale
My anchor holds with – in the veil.

[Chorus]
On Christ the solid Rock I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.

[Verse 3]
His oath, his covenant, his blood
Support me in the ‘whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

[Chorus]
On Christ the solid Rock I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.

[Verse 4]
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

[Chorus]
On Christ the solid Rock I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.

MY HOPE RESTS FIRM

[Verse 1]
My hope rests firm on Jesus Christ,
He is my only plea;
Though all the world
should point and scorn,
His ransom leaves me free,
His ransom leaves me free.

[Verse 2]
My hope sustains me
as I strive and strain towards the goal;
Though I still stumble into sin,
His death paid for it all,
His death paid for it all.

[Verse 3]
My hope provides me with a spur
to help me run this race;
I know my tears will turn to joy
The day I see His face,
the day I see His face.

[Verse 4]
My hope is to be with my Lord,
to know as I am known;
To serve Him gladly all my days
In praise before His throne,
in praise before His throne.
