1. Gloria by Chad Gardner

O taste and see
that the Lord is good
all you people, all you saints,
all you children of the King.

Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!

2. Nothing But the Blood – Words and Music by Robert Lowry, Arragement: Page CXVI

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

How precious is the flow
that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. My One Comfort by Dustin Kensrue (based on Heidelberg Catechism Q. & A. 1)

My one comfort both in life and death
is that I am not my own.
I was bought with blood and I confess
I belong to you alone.

By the Father’s good decree
Jesus you’ve delivered me.
By your spirit set me free
to follow you.

4. Communion Song: Almighty God by Leslie Jordan, David Leonard, and Sandra McCracken

Almighty God,
To You all hearts are open;
You take away our sickness and our sin.
Oh Lamb of God, we gather at Your table;
In bread and wine
You have supplied our needs.

5. Communion Song: It’s You by Dave Wilton and Asher Seevinck

Son of man
reach out your hand
and touch my weary heart.
Son of man
reach out your hand
and heal my failing heart.
It’s you that I need.

6. Communion Song: 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.
