How Great is Our God by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Ed Cash, Arranged by The Crossing Music

The splendor of the King,
clothed in majesty;
Let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice.

He wraps Himself in light,
and darkness tries to hide,
and trembles at His voice,
and trembles at His voice.

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

Your name alone has power to raise us.
Your light will shine when all else fades.
Our eyes will look on Your glorious face,
shining like the sun.

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

We read Psalm 51:15-17 where we see the sacrifice God asks of us is a broken spirit and contrite heart. Our response to this passage was to humble ourselves; being open and honest about our sins as we prayed in silent confession.

O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

With Melting Heart and Weeping Eyes – Words: John Fawcett (1740-1817), Music: Clint Wells

Does not Thy sacred word proclaim,
salvation free in Jesus’ name?
To Him I look and humbly cry,
“Lord, save a wretch condemned to die.
Lord, save this wretch condemned to die.”

We heard the assurance of God’s forgiveness and the promise of victory over sin and death through Christ’s resurrection in a reading from The Open Sourcebook based on 2 Corinthians 5:55-57.

This is what the Lord says:

“Death is swallowed in victory.
O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
For sin is the sting that results in death.

But God has given us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

In Christ, your sins are forgiven,
death has no grip on you,
and you will share in His victory.
Thanks be to God!

Christ is Risen by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light;
Our God is not dead He’s alive,
He’s alive!

Christ is risen from the dead
trampling over death by death.
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave.

This Breaks My Heart of Stone – Words: Charles Wesley (1707-1788) Music: Benji Pocta.

Look as when thy pit’ing eye,
was closed that we might live;
“Father,” at the point to die,
my Savior cried, “Forgive”.
Surely with that dying word,
He turns and looks and cries, “Tis done!”
O my loving, bleeding Lord,
this breaks my heart of stone.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross – Words: Isaac Watts (1749), Music: Lowell Mason (1824)

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Revelation Song by Jennie Lee Riddle

Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
at the mention of Your Name.
Jesus, Your Name is Power,
breath, and Living Water
such a marvelous mystery.

Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord, God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come.

Holy, Holy, Holy (Lord, God Almighty) – Words: Re­gi­nald He­ber (1826), Music: Nicaea, John B. Dykes (1861)

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who was, and is, and evermore shall be.
