Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of songs, readings and prayers featured in The Crossing’s Sunday services. This week’s service was planned and led by David Cover. Our good friend, Scott Myers and his son Cooper, provided photos to offer a glimpse into Sunday morning life at The Crossing. You’ll also find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs where available.

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed – Words: James Montgomery (1821), Music and Arrangement: Vito Aiuto (2008), Arrangement: The Crossing Music

Hail to the Lord’s anointed,
great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free;
To take away transgression
and rule in equity.

Be Thou My Vision  – Traditional Irish hymn, Arrangement: The Crossing Music

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heav’n’s Sun.
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

David read Psalm 146:1-8 as an invitation to prayer and confession.

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord, my soul.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Do not put your trust in princes,
in human beings, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
on that very day their plans come to nothing.
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them—
he remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
the Lord gives sight to the blind,
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
the Lord loves the righteous.

Sanctus – Words: Traditional (c. 1st century), Music: Christine Cover and Scott Johnson

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

See the Conqueror Mounts in Triumph – Words: Christopher Wordsworth; Music: The Crossing Music

See, the Conqueror mounts in triumph;
see the King in royal state,
Riding on the clouds, His chariot,
to His heavenly palace gate.
Hark! the choirs of angel voices
joyful alleluias sing,
And the portals high are lifted
to receive their heavenly King.

David read from 1 Peter 1:3-5 as a word of assurance and encouragement.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, New melody and bridge: Christine Cover and Greg Weile, Arrangement: The Crossing Music

In Christ alone! who took on flesh,
fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
scorned by the ones He came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied
for every sin on Him was laid;
here in the death of Christ I live.

On Jordan’s Stormy Banks – Words: Samuel Stennett (1787) Music: Christopher Miner.

On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

I am bound, I am bound,
I am bound for the Promised land.
