1. Hail to the Lord’s Anointed – Words: James Montgomery (1821), Music: 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.

2. Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words: Robert Robinson (1758); Music: John Wyeth (1839)

Hither to Thy love has blessed me,
Thou has brought me to this place.
And I know Thy hand will bring me
safely home by Thy good grace.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wand’ring from the fold of God.
He, to rescue me from danger,
interposed His precious blood.

3. The Mighty Hand of God by Brian Eichelberger, Cam Huxford, and Zach Bolen

The mighty hand of God that made the heavens and the earth
Was held by nails upon the cross to bear the sinner’s curse
The mighty hand of God undoes the wretched work of sin
Restores our lost and dying souls to victory in Him

He will never let us go, the grip of God will hold
He will never let us go, in Christ we are secure.

4. God is Good by Dustin Kensrue

Even when it seems the answer’s no
The promises of God all find their Yes
In Christ who worked the Father’s will below
That all who run to him would find their rest

God is good, all of the time
All of the time, God is good
God is good, all of the time
All of the time, God is good

5. 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. Abide by Liz Vice

Jesus we will throw away our lives to follow you
Struggling in your strength, resting in your truth
Jesus, you’re so beautiful, you give vision to the blind
You in us, the hope of glory, in you we will abide
