1. The Gospel Song by Bob Kauflin and Drew Jones

Holy God, in love, became
perfect Man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin.
By His death I live again.

2. In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

3. New Song: 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. Trees Will Clap (Isaiah 55) by Andrew Camp, Patrick Miller, Scott Johnson, and Greg Wiele

A new studio recording of this song will be included in The Crossing’s Music forthcoming Spring E.P.

Turn your ear, hear his voice,
“Sinners come, and rejoice,
Through my son, I set you free.
Pardon won, upon my tree.

With your Word, undeaf my ears,
“Seek ye God, while He’s near.”

Trees will clap, clap their hands,
mountains sing, oceans hymn.
Take your joy, fill the earth.
Lead us up and further in.

5. Jesus Paid it All – Words: Elvina M. Hall (1865), Music: John T. Grape (1835-1915), Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;

Child of weakness, watch and pray,
find in Me thine all in all.”

Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.
