1. Praise the Lord, All Praise and Blessing – Words: Joel Blomqvist (1840-1930) Music: Matt Scott

Praise the Lord, all praise and blessing,
render to his mighty name;
Thank him ever for His goodness,
now and evermore the same.
Now and evermore the same.

Everything that you have made is beautiful.
Everything that you have made is good.

2. Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words by Robert Robinson (1758), Music: NETTLETON, John Wy­eth (1813), Arrangement: The Journey Collective

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

3. The Mighty Hand of God by Brian Eichelberger, Cam Huxford, and Zach Bolen

The mighty hand of God that made the heavens and the earth
Was held by nails upon the cross to bear the sinner’s curse
The mighty hand of God undoes the wretched work of sin
Restores our lost and dying souls to victory in Him

He will never let us go, the grip of God will hold
He will never let us go, in Christ we are secure.

4. Communion Song: Day by Day by Adam Skatula, Brian Eichelberger, Nate Furtado, Spencer Abbot, Zach Bolen

What I once desired for is not what I desire more
Heart of stone turned into flesh
Love, joy, peace taking over the mess
It’s all I’m wanting day by day

No, I’m not who I was, now I am who I am
A sinner saved, a stumbling saint
Still I’m never alone, He’s alive in my bones
The ghost of God sanctifies

Day by day by day.

5. Communion Song: 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.
