SALVATION BELONGS TO OUR GOD

[Verse 1]
Salvation belongs to our God,
Who sits upon the throne,
And unto the Lamb,
Praise and glory, wisdom and thanks,
Honour and power and strength.

[Chorus]
Be to our God forever and ever,
Be to our God forever and ever,
Be to our God forever and ever, Amen!

[Verse 2]
And we the redeemed shall be strong,
In purpose and unity.
Declaring aloud, praise and glory,
Wisdom and thanks,
Honour and power and strength.

[Chorus]
Be to our God forever and ever,
Be to our God forever and ever,
Be to our God forever and ever, Amen!

SEE WHAT A MORNING

[Verse 1]
See, what a morning,
gloriously bright,
with the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
folded the grave clothes,
tomb filled with light,
as the angels anounce Christ is risen!

See God’s salvation plan,
wrought in love,
borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
fulfilled in Christ, the Man, for He lives:
Christ is risen from the Dead!

[Verse 2]
See Mary weeping,
‘Where is He Laid?’
As in sorrow she turns
from the empty tomb;
Hears a voice speaking,
calling her name; It’s the Master,
the Lord raised to life again!

The voice that spans the years,
Speaking life, stirring hope,
bringing peace to us,
Will sound till He appears,
For He lives,
Christ is risen from the dead!

[Verse 3]
One with the Father,
Ancient of Days,
Through the Spirit who clothes
faith with certainty,
Honour and blessing,
glory and praise
To the King crowned
with power and authority!

And we are raised with Him,
Death is dead, love has won,
Christ has conquered;
And we shall reign with Him,
For He lives,
Christ is risen from the dead!

SHOW US CHRIST

[Verse 1]
Prepare our hearts, O God
Help us to receive
Break the hard and stony ground
Help our unbelief
Plant Your Word down deep in us
Cause it to bear fruit
Open up our ears to hear
Lead us in Your truth

[Chorus]
Show us Christ, show us Christ
O God, reveal Your glory
Through the preaching of Your Word
Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord

[Verse 2]
Your Word is living light
Upon our darkened eyes
Guards us through temptations
Makes the simple wise
Your Word is food for famished ones
Freedom for the slave
Riches for the needy soul
Come speak to us today

[Bridge]
Where else can we go, Lord
Where else can we go
You have the words of eternal life

[Chorus]
Show us Christ, show us Christ
Show us Christ, show us Christ
O God, reveal Your glory
Through the preaching of Your Word
Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord

SOFTLY AND TENDERLY

[Verse 1]
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
Patiently Jesus is watching and waiting
Watching for you and for me.

[Chorus]
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!

[Verse 2]
Why should we tarry when Jesus in pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger & heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me?

[Chorus]
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!

[Verse 3]
Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing,
Passing from you and from me;
Shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming,
Coming for you and for me.

[Chorus]
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!

[Verse 4]
O for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me!
Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.

[Chorus]
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!

SPEAK O LORD

[Verse 1]
Speak, O Lord as we come to You
to receive the food of Your Holy Word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us
in Your likeness;

That the light of Christ
might be seen today
in our acts of love
and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
all your purposes for Your glory

[Verse 2]
Teach us Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility.
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
in the radience of Your purity.

Cause our faith to rise,
cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of power that can never fail
Let the truth prevail over unbelief

[Verse 3]
Speak, O Lord and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of
Your plans for us.
Truths unchanged
from the dawn of time,
that will echo down through eternity.

And by grace we’ll stand
on Your promises
And by faith we’ll walk
as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord,
’till Your church is built,
and the earth is filled with Your glory.

STAND UP, STAND UP FOR JESUS

[Verse 1]
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
ye soldiers of the cross;
lift high His royal banner,
it must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory
His army shall He lead,
till every foe is vanquished,
and Christ is Lord indeed.

[Verse 2]
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
the trumpet call obey;
forth to the mighty conflict,
in this his glorious day.
Ye that are brave now serve him
against unnumbered foes;
let courage rise with danger,
and strength to strength oppose.

[Verse 3]
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
stand in His strength alone;
the arm of flesh will fail you,
ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armor,
each piece put on with prayer;
where duty calls or danger,
be never wanting there.

[Verse 4]
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
the strife will not be long;
this day the noise of battle,
the next the victor’s song.
To those who vanquish evil
a crown of life shall be;
they with the King of Glory
shall reign eternally.
