Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of songs, readings and prayers featured in The Crossing’s Sunday morning liturgy. Our good friend, Scott Myers, provided photos to offer a glimpse into life as a part of The Crossing. 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: Revelation 5:12, 13b

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!”

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

Who shall we say You are?
You’re the living God.
Who shall we say You are?
You’re the Great I AM.
The highest name of all,
You’re all You say You are.

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

3. The Gospel Song by Bob Kauflin and Drew Jones

Holy God, in love, became
perfect Man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin.
By His death I live again.

4. Scripture Reading: Isaiah 53:1,3-6 (The Message)

Who believes what we’ve heard and seen?
Who would have thought God’s saving power would look like this?

There was nothing attractive about him,
nothing to cause us to take a second look.
He was looked down on and passed over,
a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand.
One look at him and people turned away.

But the fact is, it was our pains he carried—
our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
We thought he brought it on himself,
that God was punishing him for his own failures.
But it was our sins that did that to him,
that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
Through his bruises we get healed.
We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost.
We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way.
And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong,
on him, on him.

5. Suffering Servant by Dustin Kensrue

In a recent blog post on Resurgence, Dustin Kensrue (singer, songwriter, and Worship Pastor for Mars Hill in Seattle) shared a little bit about how he wrote this new song.

“I’ve tried to faithfully put this text [Isaiah 53] to song. I’ve been careful to not pull from other places in Scripture, especially the New Testament, so that the song can serve as a reminder of the amazing nature of God’s revelation of prophecy, giving us a clear look at Jesus more than half a millennium before he was born.”

You can read the full blog post here.

Though all of us have gone astray,
though all have turned to their own ways
the Lord has laid our wickedness on Him.
His punishment has brought us peace
and crushed for our iniquities.
He died to save his people from their sin.

6. In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

7. Onward Go – Words: Henry K. White, Frances S. Fuller-Maitland (Verses 1-2), Christopher Wordsworth (Verse 3) Additional lyrics: David A. Cover & Patrick Miller. Music: Christine Cover and Greg Wiele. Arrangement: The Crossing Music

Oft in sorrow, oft in woe,
onward Christians, onward go.
Fight the fight, maintain the strife
strengthened by the Bread of Life.
Onward Christians, onward go;
join the war and face the Foe.
Know that much does yet remain,
dreary is the long campaign.
