You’ll also find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs when available.

1. Call to Worship: Psalm 102:19-22 (adapted from “The Reason For and Content of Worship” by Zac Hicks

[The LORD] looked down from his holy height;
from heaven the LORD looked at the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners,
to set free those who were doomed to die,
that they may declare in Zion the name of the LORD,
and in Jerusalem his praise,
when peoples gather together,
and kingdoms, to worship the LORD.

2. Holy (Jesus, You Are) by Jason Ingram, Matt Redman, Jonas Myrin

Your name alone has power to raise us.
Your light will shine when all else fades.
Our eyes will look on Your glorious face
shining like the sun.
Who is like You, God?

You are holy, holy, holy
God most high and God most worthy.
You are holy, holy, holy
Jesus, You are. Jesus, You are.

3. Behold the Lamb of God by Cam Huxford

I’ve heard of you, how you hung the stars,
though you hold all things, your hands are scarred.
I’ve heard of you, how you laid the earth
but you spilled your blood into this dirt.
I’ve heard so many things, but now I see.

Behold the Lamb Of God, who takes away our sin.
?Behold the Lamb Of God, now fix your eyes on him.

4. Call to Confession: Romans 6:6-13a, 23

For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life…

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

5. Christ is Risen – by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes

Let no one caught in sin remain
inside the lie of inward shame,
but fix our eyes upon the cross,
and run to Him who showed great love and bled for us,
freely You’ve bled for us.

Christ is risen from the dead
trampling over death by death.
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave.

6. Assurance of a Living Hope: 1 Peter 1:3-5, 2 Corinthians 4:16-17, and 1 Corinthians 2:9

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

For as it is written:

““What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived
the things God has prepared for those who love him.”

7. On Jordan’s Stormy Banks – Words by Samuel Stennett (1787) and contemporary music by Christopher Miner.

On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

No chilling winds nor poisonous breath
Can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness, sorrow, pain and death,
Are felt and feared no more.

I am bound, I am bound,
I am bound for the Promised land.

8. Amazing Grace – Words: John Newton (1779), Music: James P. Car­rell and Da­vid S. Clay­ton (1831), Additional lyrics, chorus and arrangement: Page CXVI

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind but now I see.

I will sing to you this song of praise.
for giving me abundant grace.
You broke the stones around my heart;
In you I’ve been redeemed.
