1. How Great is Our God by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Ed Cash. Arrangement: The Crossing Music

The splendor of the King,
clothed in majesty;
Let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice.

He wraps Himself in light,
and darkness tries to hide,
and trembles at His voice,
and trembles at His voice

2. The Lion and the Lamb by Brenton Brown, Leeland Mooring, and Brian Johnson

Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
Every knee will bow before Him

Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world, His blood breaks the chains
Every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Every knee will bow before Him

3. Scripture Reading: Psalm 22:6, 14-15

I am a worm and not a man,
scorned by everyone…
I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint.
My heart has turned to wax;
it has melted within me.
You lay me in the dust of death.

4. O Help My Unbelief – Words: Isaac Watts, Music: Justin Smith

How sad our state by nature is!
our sin, how deep it stains!
and Satan binds our captive minds
Fast in his slavish chains.

But there’s a voice of sov’reign grace,
sounds from the sacred word:
“O, ye despairing sinners come,
and trust upon the Lord.”

5. God is Good by Dustin Kensrue

And even when it seems he hides his face
And darkness seems to be our only friend
We look to Christ who suffered in our place
That one day all our suffering would end

God is good, all of the time
All of the time, God is good
God is good, all of the time
All of the time, God is good

6. The War is Won – 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.
