1. 10,000 Reason (Bless the Lord) by Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul;
worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul;
I’ll worship Your holy name.

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger.
Your name is great and Your heart is kind.
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing;
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

2. Nothing But the Blood – Words and Music by Robert Lowry

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

How precious is the flow
that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. Made Alive by Brian Eichelberger and David Bolen, based on an arrangement by Citizens and Saints

I once was dead in sin alone and hopeless,
A child of wrath I walked condemned in darkness,
but your mercy brought new life
And in your love and kindness,
Raised me up with Christ and made me righteous.


You have bought me back with the riches of
Your amazing grace and relentless love.
I’m made alive forever, with you, life forever
by your grace I’m saved, by your grace I’m saved.

4. God Who Saves by Aaron Senseman

There is life in the blood of the lamb who was slain.
There is power, there is power in His name.
There is love pouring out of the wounds that were made;
Pouring out, pouring over our shame.

Praise the God who saves.
Praise the God who bled.
Praise the God who was nailed to a tree
and wore our sins upon His head.

5. In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, Additional Lyrics and Music by Kristian Stanfill and Richard Kingsmore

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.

    Sorry about that. A simple mistake of clicking the wrong box. It’s fixed now.
