O GREAT GOD

[Verse 1]
O great God of highest heaven occupy my lowly heart;
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power;
Let no vice or sin remain
That resists Your holy war;
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore.

[Verse 2]
I was blinded by my sin
Had no ears to hear Your voice
Did not know Your love within
Had no taste for heaven’s joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace

[Verse 3]
Help me now to live a life
That’s dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me

O COME, ALL YE FAITHFUL

[Verse 1]
O come, all ye faithful,
joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem!
Come and behold Him,
born the king of angels!

[Chorus]
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

[Verse 2]
Sing choirs of angels,
sing in exultation,
O sing, all ye bright hosts
of heav’n above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest!

[Chorus]
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

[Verse 3]
Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
born this happy morning,
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv’n;
Word of the Father,
now in flesh appearing!

[Chorus]
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord!

O THE DEEP, DEEP LOVE OF JESUS

[Verse 1]
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me,
Underneath me, all around me,
Is the current of Thy love;
Leading onward, leading homeward
To my glorious rest above.

[Verse 2]
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Spread His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth,
Changeth never, nevermore;
How He watches o’er His loved ones,
Died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth,
Watcheth o’er them from the throne.

[Verse 3]
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Love of every love the best;
‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing,
‘Tis a haven sweet of rest,
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
‘Tis a heav’n of heav’ns to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,
For it lifts me up to Thee.

OH THE WONDERFUL CROSS

[Verse 1]
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died.
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

[Verse 2]
See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown.

[Chorus]
O the wonderful cross,
O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die
and find that I may truly live.
O the wonderful cross,
O the wonderful cross
All who gather here
By grace draw near and bless Your name.

[Verse 3]
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an of-f’ring far too small.
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

[Chorus]
O the wonderful cross,
O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die
and find that I may truly live.
O the wonderful cross,
O the wonderful cross
All who gather here
By grace draw near and bless Your name.

OH TO SEE THE DAWN

[Verse 1]
Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day:
Christ on the road to Calvary.
Tried by sinful men, torn and beaten,
Then nailed to a cross of wood.

[Chorus]
This, the power of the cross:
Christ became sin for us.
Took the blame, bore the wrath
We stand forgiven at the cross

[Verse 2]
Oh to see the pain written on your face,
bearing the awesome weight of sin.
Every bitter thought, every evil deed
Crowning your blood stained brow

[Chorus]
This, the power of the cross:
Christ became sin for us.
Took the blame, bore the wrath
we stand forgiven at the cross

[Verse 3]
Now the daylight flees, now the ground be-neath
quakes as its Maker bows His head.
Curtain torn in two, dead are raised to life;
Finished the vic-tory cry.

[Chorus]
This, the power of the cross:
Christ became sin for us.
Took the blame, bore the wrath
we stand forgiven at the cross

[Verse 4]
Oh to see my name written in the wounds
for through your suffering I am free.
Death is crushed to death, life is mine to live
won through your selfless love

[Chorus]
This, the power of the cross:
Son of God – slain for us.
What a love! What a cost!
We stand forgiven at the cross.

O LOVE THAT WILL NOT LET ME GO

[Verse 1]
O love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee:
I give thee back the life I owe,
that in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, full-er be.

[Verse 2]
O light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee:
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fair-er be.

[Verse 3]
O joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee:
I trace the rain – bow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tear-less be.

[Verse 4]
O cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee:
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall end-less be.

ONCE AGAIN

[Verse 1]
Jesus Christ, I think upon Your sacrifice,
You became nothing, poured out to death.
Many times I’ve wondered at Your gift of life,
And I’m in that place once again.
And I’m in that place once again.

[Chorus]
And once again I look upon
The cross where You died,
I’m humbled by Your mercy
And I’m broken inside.
Once again I thank You,
Once again I pour out my life.

[Verse 2]
Now You are exalted to the highest place,
King of the heavens, where one day I’ll bow.
But for now, I marvel at this saving grace,
And I’m full of praise once again.
I’m full of praise once again.

[Chorus]
And once again I look upon
The cross where You died,
I’m humbled by Your mercy
And I’m broken inside.
Once again I thank You,
Once again I pour out my life.

[Bridge]
Thank You for the cross,
Thank You for the cross,
Thank You for the cross, my Friend. (Repeat)

[Chorus]
And once again I look upon
The cross where You died,
I’m humbled by Your mercy
And I’m broken inside.
Once again I thank You,
Once again I pour out my life.

ONLY IN THE CROSS

[Verse 1]
When I look upon the cross
in that spectacle of suffering
I see the power of God.
There the Son of God was crushed
and lifted up to die for me
and conquered death forever

[Chorus]
So I will glory only in the cross,
yes, I will glory only in the cross
and I will make my boast
in the Lord Jesus Christ
crucified to ransom us

[Verse 2]
When I look upon the cross,
in what might seem a senseless death,
I see the wisdom of God.
For there the sinless Holy One
was made to be sin for me,
then He declared me righteous.

[Chorus]
So I will glory only in the cross,
yes, I will glory only in the cross
and I will make my boast
in the Lord Jesus Christ
crucified to ransom us

[Bridge]
Only in the cross
Only in the cross
I will glory
Only in the cross (x2)

[Chorus]
So I will glory only in the cross,
yes, I will glory only in the cross
and I will make my boast
in the Lord Jesus Christ
crucified to ransom us
