1. Behold Our God by Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird and Stephen Altrogge

Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior risen now to reign!

Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.

2. Man of Sorrows by Brooke Ligertwood and Matt Crocker

Man of sorrows Lamb of God
By His own betrayed
The sin of man and wrath of God
Has been on Jesus laid

Oh that rugged cross, my salvation,
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out, Hallelujah
Praise and honor unto Thee

3. Reflection: Based on Luke 4:16-21

4. No Longer Slaves (to Fear) by Brian Johnson, Jonathan David Helser, Joel Case

You unravel me, with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance, from my enemies
Till all my fears are gone

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

5. Assurance: Based on Galatians 4:4-6. Isaiah 43:2, Isaiah 46:10, and Hebrews 10:23

God sent his Son, Jesus, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children , God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.”

You’re a good, good Father.
It’s who you are, it’s who you are,
it’s who you are.

This is what our Heavenly Father promises:

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned… For I am the LORD, your God.”

You’re a good, good Father.
It’s who you are, it’s who you are,
it’s who you are.

Listen to me… I have cared for you since you were born. Yes, I carried you before you were born. I will be your God throughout your lifetime— until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.

You’re a good, good Father.
It’s who you are, it’s who you are,
it’s who you are.

So brothers and sisters, let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for God, our Father, the one who promised is good and faithfu

6. Good Good Father by Pat Barrett, Anthony Brown

I’ve heard a thousand stories
Of what they think You’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whisper
Of love in the dead of night
And You tell me that You’re pleased
And that I’m never alone


You’re a good, good Father,
It’s who You are, it’s who You are,
It’s who You are
And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am, it’s who I am
It’s who I am.

7. 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.
