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. Preparation for Worship: Psalm 89:9, 11

You rule the raging of the sea;
when its waves rise, you still them.
The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours;
the world and all that is in it, you have founded them.

2. All Creatures of Our God and KingWords: Francis of Assisi (cir­ca 1225), Arrangement: Andrew Camp

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3. 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.
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

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

4. Scriptural Reflection: Jonah 2:8

“Those who cling to worthless idols
turn away from God’s love for them.

5. Cling to the Crucified – Words: Anonymous (from Bonar’s “Lyra Consolationis”), Alt. Lyrics and Music: Kevin Twit

Cling to the Bleeding One, Cling to His side
Cling to the Rising One, In Him abide
Cling to the Coming One, Hope shall arise
Cling to the Reigning One, Joy lights thine eyes

Cling to the crucified, Jesus the Lamb who died
Cling to the crucified, Jesus the King
Cling to the crucified, Jesus the Lamb who died
Cling to the crucified, Jesus the King

6. Hallelujah! What A Savior – Words and Music: Phillip P. Bliss (1875), Arrangement: The Crossing Music

Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

7. The Revelation of Jesus Christ – by Cam Huxford

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ” is a melodically inventive and emotionally moving adaptation of Revelation 21 by Ghost Ship from Mars Hill in Seattle. The band’s two goals for their music is, “to point to Jesus and call people to respond to Jesus.”

I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
for the first had passed away.
I saw a new city, Jerusalem;
a bride on her wedding day.

I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
“look at the dwelling place of God.”
He will dwell with them, they will be his people,
and He will be their God.

Wipe away every tear from our eyes.
Death will be no more.
