1. The Lion and the Lamb by Brenton Brown, Leeland Mooring, and Brian Johnson

Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
Every knee will bow before Him

Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world, His blood breaks the chains
Every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Every knee will bow before Him

2. Scripture Reading: Psalm 62:7-8

My victory and honor come from God alone.
    He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
O my people, trust in him at all times.
    Pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.

3. Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Contemporary chorus by Page CXVI (2009). Arrangement by Page CXVI and David Wilton

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

5. 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

6. Christ Be All Around Me by David Leonard, Jack Mooring, Leeland Mooring, and Leslie Jordan

As I rise, strength of God
Go before, lift me up
As I wake, eyes of God
Look upon, be my sight

Above and below me
Before and behind me
In every eye that sees me
Christ be all around me

7. 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.
