1. Behold Our God by Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird and Stephen Altrogge, Arrangement: The Village Church

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His Words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?

Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.
Behold our King—nothing can compare.
come, let us adore Him.

2. Before the Throne – Words: Charitie L. Bancroft (1863), Music: Vikki Cook, Based on an arrangement: the Modern Post

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea.
A great high Priest whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in Heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

3. Grace Alone by Dustin Kensrue

You left your home to seek out the lost;
You knew the great and terrible cost
But Jesus, your face was set.

I worked my fingers down to the bone;
But nothing I did could ever atone,
But Jesus, you paid my debt.

By your blood I have redemption and salvation.
Lord you died that I might reap what you have sown,
And you rose that I might be a new creation.
I am born again by grace, and grace alone.

4. Communion Song: I Will Rise by Chris Tomlin, Louie Giglio, Jesse Reeves and Matt Maher

Jesus has overcome
and the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead.
I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain.
I will rise on eagle’s wings,
before my God fall on my knees and rise.

5. Communion Song: We Will Feast in the House of Zion by Sandra McCracken and Joshua Moore

We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things, we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

We will not be burned by the fire
He is the LORD our God
We are not consumed, by the flood
Upheld, protected, gathered up
