TELL ME THE OLD OLD STORY

[Verse 1]
Tell me the old, old story,
Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
Of Jesus and His love;
Tell me the story simply,
As to a little child,
For I am weak and weary,
And helpless and defiled.
Tell me the old, old story,
Tell me the old, old story,
Tell me the old, old story,
Of Jesus and His love.

[Verse 2]
Tell me the story slowly,
That I may take it in—
That wonderful redemption,
God’s remedy for sin;
Tell me the story often,
For I forget so soon,
The “early dew” of morning
Has passed away at noon.

[Verse 3]
Tell me the story softly,
With earnest tones and grave;
Remember I’m the sinner
Whom Jesus came to save;
Tell me the story always,
If you would really be,
In any time of trouble,
A comforter to me.

[Verse 4]
Tell me the same old story,
When you have cause to fear
That this world’s empty glory
Is costing me too dear;
And when the Lord’s bright glory
Is dawning on my soul,
Tell me the old, old story:
“Christ Jesus makes thee whole.”

THANK YOU FOR THE CROSS

[Verse 1]
Thank You for the cross Lord
Thank You for the price You paid
Bearing all my sin and shame
In love You came
And gave amazing grace

[Verse 2]
Thank You for this love Lord
Thank You for the nail pierced hands
Washed me in Your cleansing blood
Now all I know
Your forgiveness and embrace

[Chorus]
Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the throne
Crown You now with many crowns
You reign victorious
High and lifted up
Jesus Son of God
The Lord of Heaven crucified
Worthy is the Lamb, Worthy is the Lamb

THE CHURCH’S ONE FOUNDATION

[Verse 1]
The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord;
she is His new creation by water and the Word.
From heaven He came and sought her to be His holy bride;
with His own blood He bought her, and for her life He died.

[Verse 2]
Elect from every nation, yet one o’er all the earth;
her charter of salvation: one Lord, one faith, one birth.
One holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food,
and to one hope she presses, with every grace endued.

[Verse 3]
Though with a scornful wonder the world see her oppressed,
by schisms rent asunder, by heresies distressed,
yet saints their watch are keeping; their cry goes up: “How long?”
and soon the night of weeping shall be the morn of song.

[Verse 4]
Mid toil and tribulation, and tumult of her war,
she waits the consummation of peace forevermore,
till with the vision glorious her longing eyes are blest,
and the great church victorious shall be the church at rest.

[Verse 5]
Yet she on earth hath union with God the Three in One,
and mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won:
O happy ones and holy! Lord, give us grace that we
like them, the meek and lowly, may live eternally.

THE GLORY OF THE CROSS

[Verse 1]
What wisdom once devised the plan
Where all our sin and pride
Was placed upon the perfect Lamb
Who suffered, bled, and died?
The wisdom of a Sovereign God
Whose greatness will be shown
When those who crucified Your Son
Rejoice around Your throne

[Chorus]
And, oh, the glory of the cross
That You would send Your Son for us
I gladly count my life as loss
That I might come to know
The glory of, the glory of the cross

[Verse 2]
What righteousness was there revealed
That sets the guilty free
That justifies ungodly men
And calls the filthy clean?
A righteousness that proved to all
Your justice has been met
And holy wrath is satisfied
Through one atoning death

[Chorus]
And, oh, the glory of the cross
That You would send Your Son for us
I gladly count my life as loss
That I might come to know
The glory of, the glory of the cross

[Verse 3]
What mercy now has been proclaimed
For those who would believe
A love incomprehensible
Our minds could not conceive?
A mercy that forgives my sin
Then makes me like Your Son
And now I’m loved forevermore
Because of what You’ve done

[Chorus]
And, oh, the glory of the cross
That You would send Your Son for us
I gladly count my life as loss
That I might come to know
The glory of, the glory of the cross

THE KING OF LOVE

[Verse 1]
The King of Love my Shepherd is
Whose goodness faileth never
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever
And He is mine forever

[Verse 2]
Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth
And where the verdant pastures grow
With food celestial feedeth

[Chorus]
Never failing Ruler of my heart
Everlasting Lover of my soul
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is
The King of Love my Shepherd is

[Verse 3]
Lost and foolish off I strayed
But yet in love He sought me
And on His shoulder gently laid
And home rejoicing brought me

[Verse 4]
In death’s dark veil I fear no ill
With Thee dear Lord beside me
Thy rod and staff my comfort still
Thy cross before to guide me

[Chorus]
Never failing Ruler of my heart
Everlasting Lover of my soul
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is
The King of Love my Shepherd is

[Bridge]
Oh. . . . Hallelujah Hallelujah
Oh. . . . Hallelujah Hallelujah

[Chorus]
Never failing Ruler of my heart
Everlasting Lover of my soul
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is
The King of Love my Shepherd is

[Verse 5]
And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never
Good Shepherd may I sing Your praise
Within Your house forever
Within Your house forever

THE LOOK

[Verse 1]
I saw one hanging on a tree
In agony and blood
Who fixed his loving eyes on me
As near his cross I stood
And never till my dying breath
Will I forget that look
It seemed to charge me with his death
Though not a word he spoke

[Verse 2]
My conscience felt and owned the guilt
And plunged me in despair
I saw my sins his blood had spilt
And helped to nail him there
But with a second look he said
“I freely all forgive
This blood is for your ransom paid
I died that you might live”

[Chorus]
Forever etched upon my mind
Is the look of Him who died
The Lamb I crucified
And now my life will sing the praise
Of pure atoning grace
That looked on me and
Gladly took my place

[Verse 3]
Thus while his death my sin displays
For all the world to view
Such is the mystery of grace
It seals my pardon too
With pleasing grief and mournful joy
My spirit now is filled
That I should such a life destroy
Yet live by Him I killed

[Chorus]
Forever etched upon my mind
Is the look of Him who died
The Lamb I crucified
And now my life will sing the praise
Of pure atoning grace
That looked on me and
Took my place

[Outro]
Forever etched upon my mind
Is the look of Him who died
The Lamb I crucified
And now my life will sing the praise
Of pure atoning grace
That looked on me and
Gladly took my place

THE LORD’S MY SHEPHERD

[Verse 1]
The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want;
He makes me lie in pastures green;
He leads me by the still, still waters;
His goodness restores my soul.

[Chorus]
And I will trust in You alone;
And I will trust in You alone;
For Your endless mercy follows me;
Your goodness will lead me home.

[Verse 2]
He guides my ways in righteousness,
And He anoints my head with oil;
And my cup it overflows with joy;
I feast on His pure delights.

[Chorus]
And I will trust in You alone;
And I will trust in You alone;
For Your endless mercy follows me;
Your goodness will lead me home.

[Verse 3]
And though I walk the darkest path,
I will not fear the evil one;
For You are with me
and Your rod and staff
Are the comfort I need to know.

[Chorus]
And I will trust in You alone;
And I will trust in You alone;
For Your endless mercy follows me;
Your goodness will lead me home.

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS

[Verse 1]
On a hill far away
stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suff’ring and shame;
And I love that old cross
where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

[Chorus]
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

[Verse 2]
O that old rugged cross,
so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God
left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.

[Chorus]
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

[Verse 3]
In the old rugged cross,
stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see;
For ’twas on that old cross
Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me.

[Chorus]
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

[Verse 4]
To the old rugged cross
I will ever be true,
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then he’ll call me some day
to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I’ll share.

[Chorus]
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

THE PRECIOUS BLOOD

[Verse 1]
Before the cross I kneel and see
The measure of my sin
How You became a curse for me
Though You were innocent
The magnitude of Your great love
Was shown in full degree
When righteous blood, the crimson spill
Rained down from Calvary

[Chorus]
Oh, the precious blood
That flowed from Mercy’s side
Washed away my sin
When Christ my Savior died
Oh, the precious blood
Of Christ the crucified
It speaks for me before Your throne
Where I stand justified

[Verse 2]
And who am I that I should know
This treasure of such worth
My Savior’s pure atoning blood
Shed for the wrath I’d earned
For sin has stained my every deed
My every word and thought
What wondrous love that makes me one
Your priceless blood has bought

[Chorus]
Oh, the precious blood
That flowed from Mercy’s side
Washed away my sin
When Christ my Savior died
Oh, the precious blood
Of Christ the crucified
It speaks for me before Your throne
Where I stand justified

[Bridge]
A crown of thorns, pierced hands and feet
A body bruised, and Mercy’s plea
(REPEAT)

[Chorus]
Oh, the precious blood
That flowed from Mercy’s side
Washed away my sin
When Christ my Savior died
Oh, the precious blood
Of Christ the crucified
It speaks for me before Your throne
Where I stand justified.

THERE IS A DAY

[Verse 1]
There is a day
that all creation’s waiting for
A day of freedom
and liberation from the earth.
And on that day,
the Lord will come to meet His bride,
And when we see Him
in an instant we’ll be changed.

[Verse 2]
The trumpet sounds
and the dead will then be raised
By His power, never to perish again.
Once only flesh,
now clothed with immortality;
Death has now been
swallowed up in victory.

[Chorus]
We will meet Him in the air,
and then we will be like Him
For we will see Him as He is, as He is.
Then all hurt and pain will cease,
and we’ll be with Him forever,
And in His glory we will live, we will live.

[Verse 3]
So lift your eyes
to the things as yet unseen,
That will remain now for all eternity.
Though trouble’s hard,
it’s only momentary,
And it’s achieving our future glory.

[Chorus]
We will meet Him in the air,
and then we will be like Him
For we will see Him as He is, as He is.
Then all hurt and pain will cease,
and we’ll be with Him forever,
And in His glory we will live, we will live.

THERE IS A FOUNTAIN

[Verse 1]
There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel’s veins,
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains:
Lose all their guilty stains,
Lose all their guilty stains;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.

[Verse 2]
The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day,
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away:
Wash all my sins away,
Wash all my sins away;
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.

[Verse 3]
Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its pow’r,
Till all the ransomed Church of God
Be saved to sin no more:
Be saved to sin no more,
Be saved to sin no more;
Till all the ransomed Church of God
Be saved to sin no more.

[Verse 4]
E’er since by faith I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme
And shall be till I die:
And shall be till I die,
And shall be till I die;
Redeeming love has been my theme
And shall be till I die.

[Closing Verse]
There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel’s veins,
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains

THERE IS A HIGHER THRONE

[Verse 1]
There is a higher throne
Than all this world has known
Where faithful ones from every tongue
Will one day come.
Before the Son we’ll stand,
Made faultless through the Lamb;
Believing hearts find promised grace:
Salvation comes.

[Chorus]
Hear heaven’s voices sing,
Their thunderous anthem rings
Through em’rald courts
and sapphire skies;
Their praises rise.
All glory, wisdom power;
Strength, thanks and honour are
To God, our King Who reigns on high
Forever more.

[Verse 2]
And there we’ll find our home,
Our life before the throne
We’ll honour Him in perfect song
Where we belong.
He’ll wipe each tear-stained eye,
As thirst and hunger die;
The Lamb becomes our Shepherd King:
We’ll reign with Him.

[Chorus]
Hear heaven’s voices sing,
Their thunderous anthem rings
Through em’rald courts
and sapphire skies;
Their praises rise.
All glory, wisdom power;
Strength, thanks and honour are
To God, our King Who reigns on high
Forever more.

THE SERVANT KING

[Verse 1]
From heaven You came helpless babe,
entered our world, Your glory veiled.
Not to be served, but to serve.
And give Your life that we might live.

[Chorus]
This is our God, the Servant King,
He calls us now to follow Him.
To bring our lives as a daily offering,
of worship to the Servant King.

[Verse 2]
There in the garden of tears,
my heavy load He chose to bear.
His heart with sorrow was torn,
“yet not My will but Yours”, He said.

[Chorus]
This is our God, the Servant King,
He calls us now to follow Him.
To bring our lives as a daily offering,
of worship to the Servant King.

[Verse 3]
Come see His hands and His feet,
The scars that speak of sacrifice.
Hands that flung stars into space,
to cruel nails surrendered.

[Chorus]
This is our God, the Servant King,
He calls us now to follow Him.
To bring our lives as a daily offering,
of worship to the Servant King.

[Verse 4]
So let us learn how to serve,
and in our lives enthrone Him,
Each other’s needs to prefer,
for it is Christ we’re serving.

[Chorus]
This is our God, the Servant King,
He calls us now to follow Him.
To bring our lives as a daily offering,
of worship to the Servant King.

THIS FATHOMLESS LOVE

[Verse 1]
Lord, what moved Your heart to love lowly man
Before any star could herald Your praise?
And why did You come, abasing Yourself
Veiled in a robe of frail human clay?

Why would You, the pure, give Your life for the vile
The innocent seeking the guilty
To be reconciled?

[Chorus]
I can’t comprehend this fathomless love
I’m gripped and amazed at what You have done
Why would the adored become the despised
To bear all the furious wrath that was mine?
How awesome this mystery
Of Your fathomless love for me

[Verse 2]
Why would You adopt and take as Your own
Those who had crushed Your one precious Son?
Why mercy and grace towards Your enemies?
Your name they have cursed and Your throne they have shunned

Oh, how could You choose to show kindness to these?
The ones who would mock You and hate You
The ones just like me?

[Chorus]
I can’t comprehend this fathomless love
I’m gripped and amazed at what You have done
Why would the adored become the despised
To bear all the furious wrath that was mine?
How awesome this mystery
Of Your fathomless love for me

THIS KINGDOM

[Verse 1]
Jesus, God’s righteousness revealed,
The Son of Man, the Son of God,
His kingdom comes.
Jesus, redemption’s sacrifice,
Now glorified, now justified,
His kingdom comes.

[Chorus]
And His kingdom will know no end,
And its glory shall know no bounds,
For the majesty and power
Of this kingdom’s King has come.

And this kingdom’s reign,
And this kingdom’s rule,
And this kingdom’s power and authority,
Jesus, God’s righteousness revealed.

[Verse 2]
Jesus, the expression of God’s love,
The grace of God, the Word of God, revealed to us;
Jesus, God’s holiness displayed,
Now glorified, now justified,
His kingdom comes.

[Chorus]
And His kingdom will know no end,
And its glory shall know no bounds,
For the majesty and power
Of this kingdom’s King has come.

And this kingdom’s reign,
And this kingdom’s rule,
And this kingdom’s power and authority,
Jesus, God’s righteousness revealed.

THOU ART WORTHY

[Verse 1]
Thou art worthy, Thou art worthy
Thou art worthy oh Lord.
To receive glory, glory and honor,
glory and honor and power.

For thou hast created, hast all things created.
For thou has created all things.
And for Thy pleasure, they are created,
Thou art worthy oh Lord.

[Verse 2]
You are worthy, You are worthy,
You are worthy oh King.
You are worthy, to receive glory
and worship from all upon earth.

For you are almighty, alone you are holy,
Wonderful are all your ways.
Who shall not fear You, love and adore You,
You are worthy oh Lord.

[Verse 3]
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory belongs to our God.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
the Lord The Almighty God reigns.

So let us rejoice and exalt and give praises,
For we are bride of the Lamb.
Clothed in white garments, Washed and made ready,
Hallelujah oh Lord.

THY WORD

[Verse 1]
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path.

And when I feel afraid,
think I’ve lost my way,
Still You’re there right beside me.
And nothing will I fear,
as long as You are near,
Please be near me to the end.

[Chorus]
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path.

And I will not forget,
Your love for me and yet,
My heart forever is wandering.
Jesus be my guide,
hold me to Your side,
And I will love You to the end.

[Chorus]
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path,
And a light unto my path,
You’re the light unto my path.

TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS

[Verse 1]
‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word,
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know “Thus saith the Lord.”

[Chorus]
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

[Verse 2]
O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood,
Just in simple faith to plunge me
‘Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

Precious Jesus, Saviour, Friend;

Will be with me to the end.

How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

TO GOD BE THE GLORY

[Verse 1]
To God be the glory-
great things He hath done!
So loved He the world
that He gave us His son,
Who yielded His life
an atonement for sin
And opened the Life-
gate that all may go in.

[Chorus]
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory-
Great things He has done.

[Verse 2]
O perfect redemption,
the purchase of blood!
To eve’ry believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus
a pardon receives.

[Chorus]
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory-
Great things He has done.

[Verse 3]
Great things He hath taught us,
great things He hath done,
And great our rejoicing
through Jesus the Son;
But purer and higher
and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport,
when Jesus we see.

[Chorus]
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory-
Great things He has done.

TRUST AND OBEY

[Verse 1]
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

[Refrain]
Trust and obey, For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

[Verse 2]
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

[Refrain]
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

[Verse 3]
Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss, not a frown nor a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.

[Refrain]
Trust and obey, For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

[Verse 4]
But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

[Refrain]
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

[Verse 5]
Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.

[Refrain]
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS

[Verse 1]
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth,
Will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

[Verse 2[
Keep your eyes upon Jesus,
Let nobody else take His place,
So that hour by hour
you may know His power,
Till at last you have won the great race.
