1. See the Conqueror Mounts in Triumph – Words: Christopher Wordsworth (1862); Music: Christine Cover, David A. Cover, Rhett Johnson, Andrew Luley, Ryan Ponder, and Greg Wiele

Who is this that comes in glory,
with the trump of jubilee?
Lord of battles, God of armies,
He has gained the victory.
He who on the cross did suffer,
He who from the grave arose,
He has vanquished sin and Satan,
He by death has spoiled His foes.

2. Holy (Jesus, You Are) by Jason Ingram, Matt Redman, Jonas Myrin

And You will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead.
Our eyes will look on
Your glorious face,
shining like the sun.
Who is like you God?

You are holy, holy, holy
God most high and God most worthy.
You are holy, holy, holy
Jesus, You are. Jesus, You are.

3. It’s You by Dave Wilton and Asher Seevinck

Son of man
reach out your hand and touch
my weary heart.
Son of man
reach out your hand and heal
my failing heart.
It’s you that I need.

4. Jesus Paid it All – Words: Elvina M. Hall (1865), Music: John T. Grape (1835-1915), Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

I hear the Savior say, “Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”
Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

5. In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all— Here in the love of Christ I stand.

6. A Mighty Fortress is Our God – Words: Mar­tin Lut­her (1529, Retrans­lat­ed from Ger­man to Eng­lish by Fred­er­ic H. Hedge (1853), Music: Christine Cover and Greg Wiele

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.

7. Before the Throne – Words: Charitie L. Bancroft (1863), Music: Vikki Cook, Based on an arrangement: the Modern Post

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea.
A great high Priest whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in Heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
