Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of songs, readings and prayers featured in The Crossing’s Sunday services. This week’s service was planned and led by David Cover. Our good friend, Lana Eklund, provided photos to offer a glimpse into Sunday morning life at The Crossing. You’ll also find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs when available.

Holy, Holy, Holy – Words by Reginald Heber (1783-1826), Music: Nicaea, John B. Dykes (1861)

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who was, and is, and evermore shall be.

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name – Words by Edward Perronet (1780), Contemporary chorus by Judah Groveman (based on a arrangement by Jaron and Katherine Kamon)

All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.

Call to Confession: 1 Peter 1:15-16, 18-21

But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors,but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

Come Ye Sinners – Words: Joseph Hart, Music: Christine Cover and Greg Wiele (with Alyssa Kelly)

Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus, ready, stands to save you,
Full of pity, joined with power.

Come, ye thirsty, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.

Nothing But the Blood – Words and Music by Robert Lowry, Arragement: Page CXVI

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

How precious is the flow
that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Assurance: Isaiah 12:2-5

Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.”
With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation.
In that day you will say:

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done,
and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;
let this be known to all the world.

How Great Thou Art by Stuart K. Hine

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
Then sings my soul to my Savior, God.
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

Take My Life – Words: Frances R. Havergal (1874), Music and additional lyrics: Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio, Arrangement: The Crossing Music

Take my life and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands and let them move
at the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
swift and beautiful for Thee.
