Songs and Scenes: March 13, 2016


Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of songs, readings and prayers featured in The Crossing’s Sunday morning liturgy. We’ve included a link to a Spotify playlist of Sunday’s songs (when available) so you can enjoy listening to them throughout your week. This week’s liturgy recap features photos by Andrew Herndon.


1. Empty Me Out by Josh White, Arrangement by Liz Vice

I died with You, was buried with You
The moment I believed.
I rose with You, ascended with You
into the Heavenlies.

Lord, it’s not me,
it’s you inside of me.
Jesus, you’re all
these eyes can see.


2. Almighty God by Leslie Jordan, David Leonard, and Sandra McCracken

Almighty God to you all hearts are open;
We long for more than what this world provides.
No shallow spring will ever satisfy us;
Your river deep floods over everything.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!


3. The House of God Forever by Jon Foreman

God is my shepherd
I won’t be wanting. I won’t be wanting.
He makes me rest
in fields of green with quiet streams.
Even though I walk
through the valley of death and dying
I will not fear ’cause you are with me,
You’re always with me.


4. My Heart is Glad (Psalm 16) by Aaron Strumpel and The Crossing Music

I have set the LORD always before me;
because He is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.

Keep me safe, my God;
I have come to You,
I have come to You for refuge.

Is it any wonder that my heart is glad?
Is it any wonder that my heart is glad?
I rejoice.


5. I’m Yours by Asher Seevinck & Dave Wilton

I am no longer a slave.
I am no longer afraid.
You gave me a voice and a song,
You taught me how to sing.
Now I have brothers and sisters,
You gave me a family.

I’m Yours, I’m Yours,
You called me Your child.
I’m Yours, I’m Yours,
You bought me with blood.
