Crossing Worship

1. Rejoice by Dustin Kensrue and Stuart Townend

Come and stand before your Maker
Full of wonder, full of fear
Come behold His power and glory
Yet with confidence draw near
For the one who holds the heavens
And commands the stars above
Is the God who bends to bless us
With an unrelenting love

Rejoice, come and lift your hands and
Raise your voice, He is worthy of our praise
Rejoice, sing of mercies of your King
And with trembling, rejoice

2. How Great is Our God by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Ed Cash

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
.

3. Doubting Doubts by Adam Skatula, Brian Eichelberger, Nathan Furtado, Spencer Abbott, and Zach Bolen

Don’t want to live like I’m an orphan with no bed
Still I keep searching for a place to rest my head

But I have all I’ve ever needed
Help me trust beyond what I’m not seeing
To be content with all this grace You’ve given
In my weakness You are strong
In my weakness You are strong

4. Day by Day by Adam Skatula, Brian Eichelberger, Nate Furtado, Spencer Abbot, Zach Bolen

What I once desired for is not what I desire more
Heart of stone turned into flesh
Love, joy, peace taking over the mess
It’s all I’m wanting day by day


No, I’m not who I was, now I am who I am
A sinner saved, a stumbling saint
Still I’m never alone, He’s alive in my bones
The ghost of God sanctifies

Day by day by day.

5. Communion Song: Nothing But the Blood by Robert Lowry, Russ Mohr, Aaron Smith

What can heal our broken land?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What unites us, hand in hand?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

O, precious is the flow
That mends and makes us whole
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

6. Communion Song: 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.
