All Creatures of Our God and KingWords by Francis of Assisi (cir­ca 1225), Arrangement by The Crossing Music

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

I Sing the Mighty Power of God – Words: Isaac Watts (1715), Music and Additional Chorus: Scott Johnson, Keith Scherer, Andrew Camp, and Andrew Luley

I sing the mighty power of God,
that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command,
all the stars obey.

You Alone Can Rescue by Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin

You alone can rescue, You alone can save.
You alone can lift us from the grave.
You came down to find us, led us out of death.
To You alone be longs the highest praise.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus by Helen H. Lemmel (1922)

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.

There is a Day by Nathan Fellingham

There is a day that all creation’s waiting for
a day of freedom and liberation for 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.

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.

All Must Be Well – Words by Mary Bowley Peters (1847) with contemporary music by Matthew Smith.

Through the love of God our Savior, all will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor, all is well;
Precious is the blood that healed us;
Perfect is the grace that sealed us;
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us,
all must be well.
