1. The War is Won (Jesus Once For Sinner’s Slain) – Words: Joseph Hart, Additional Lyrics: Patrick Miller and David A. Cover, Music: The Crossing Music

Jesus once for sinners slain,
from the dead is raised again.
Cheerful let us raise our voice;
we have reason to rejoice.

The war is won, though battles rage.
Our risen King will end this age.
Until that day, stand in hope
of love that will forever flow.

2. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty – Words: Joachim Neander (1680), Music: Lobe Herren (1665), Arrangement and chorus: The Crossing Music

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
the King of creation!
O My soul, praise Him
for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
Praise him in glad adoration.

3. All Creatures of Our God and King – Words by Francis of Assisi (cir­ca 1225), Arrangement: The Crossing Music

All creatures of our God and King 
Lift up your voice and with us sing, 
O praise Him! Alleluia! 
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!
O praise Him! praise Him!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4. Christ is Risen by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light;
Our God is not dead He’s alive,
He’s alive!

Christ is risen from the dead
trampling over death by death.
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave.

5. Made Alive by Brian Eichelberger and David Bolen

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.

6. It is Finished by Dustin Kensrue

There’s no sacrifice to offer,
there’s no penance to complete;
Freely drink of living water,
without money come and feast.

It is finished! He has done it!
let your weary heart rejoice.
Our redemption is accomplished
raise a shout with ragged voice.
