Psalm 22

Psalm 22
Words & Music by Cameron Gray © 2017 Rough Harbor Music

My God, my God,
Why have you forsaken me?
My God, my God,
Darkness overtaking me
My God, my God,
Dried up like shards of clay,
Poured out in tears by night,
Melted like wax by day

My God, my God,
Calling from the lion’s mouth,
My God, my God,
Scoffers mock and thieves surround,
My God, my God,
Saints before have trusted You,
But You have left me here,
And I am piercéd through

Oh God, my God, my—

My God, my God,
Why are You so far from me?
My God, my God,
Why have You abandoned me?
My God, my God,
You raised me from my mother’s womb
Now raise me up again,
Up from my lonesome tomb

Oh God, my God, my God, my God, my God.

God Made Low

God Made Low
Music and words by Jason Hansen and Bob Kauflin. © 2014 Sovereign Grace Praise. CCLI Song #7031872

Prophets promised long ago
A King would come to bring us hope
And now a virgin bears a son
The time to save the world has come

Humble shepherds run in haste
To see the One the angels praised
In cattle stall they find a girl
Who holds the hope of all the world

CHORUS
Emmanuel has come to us
The Christ is born, Hallelujah!
Our God made low to raise us up
Emmanuel, has come to us

As He sleeps upon the hay
He holds the moon and stars in place
Though born an infant He remains
The sovereign God of endless days

For all our sins one day He’ll die
To make us sons of God on high
Let every heart prepare Him room
The promises have all come true

How Firm A Foundation

How Firm A Foundation
Author Unknown. Words & Music: Public Domain

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word
What more can He say than to you He hath said
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled

Fear not, I am with thee; oh be not dismayed
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand

When through the deep waters I call thee to go
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress

When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie
My grace all sufficient shall be thy supply
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine

The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose
I will not, I will not desert to its foes
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake

No Longer Slaves

No Longer Slaves
©2014 Bethel Music Publishing. Words & Music by Brian Johnson, Joel Case, Jonathan David Helser. CCLI Song #7030123

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

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

From my Mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again into Your family
Your blood flows through my veins

Bridge
I am surrounded
By the arms of the Father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance
We’ve been liberated
From all our bondage
We are sons and daughters
Let us sing of our freedom!

You split the sea so I could walk right through it
My fears are drowned in perfect love
You rescued me and I will stand and sing
I am a child of God

The Lion And The Lamb

The Lion And The Lamb
Words & Music: Brenton Brown, Brian Johnson, Leeland Mooring © 2015 Meaux Mercy. CCLI Song #7038281

He’s coming on the clouds
Kings and kingdoms will bow down
And every chain will break
As broken hearts declare His praise
For who can stop the Lord almighty

CHORUS:
Our God is the Lion
The Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power
And fighting our battles
And every knee will bow before Him
Our God is the Lamb
The Lamb that was slain
For the sin of the world
His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Oh every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

So open up the gates
Make way before the King of kings
Our God who comes to save
Is here to set the captives free
For who can stop the Lord almighty

BRIDGE:
Who can stop the Lord almighty
Who can stop the Lord (almighty)

Praise To the Lord the Almighty

Praise To the Lord the Almighty
Public Domain. Words: Joachim Neander, 1680. Music: Erneuerten Gesangbuch, 1665

Praise to the Lord,
The Almighty, the king of creation!
O my soul, praise Him,
For He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear,
Now to His temple draw near;
Praise Him in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord,
Who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings,
Yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen
How all thy longings hath been
Granted in what He ordaineth?

Praise to the Lord,
Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness
And mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
If with His love He befriend thee.

Praise to the Lord,
O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath,
Come now with praises before Him.
Let the Amen sound from His people again,
Gladly for aye we adore Him.

You came from heaven’s throne
Acquainted with our sorrow
To trade the debt we owe

The pow’r of sin undone
The cross for my salvation

There is no greater love

Sovereign Over Us

Sovereign Over Us
©2011 Thankyou Music. Words & Music by Aaron Keyes, Bryan Brown, Jack Mooring. CCLI Song #6011370

There is strength within the sorrow,
There is beauty in our tears,
And You meet us in our mourning,
With a love that casts out fear

You are working in our waiting
You are sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding
You’re teaching us to trust

CHORUS:
Your plans are still to prosper
You’ve not forgotten us
You’re with us in the fire and the flood
Faithful forever, perfect in love
You are sov’reign over us

You are wisdom unimagined,
Who could understand Your ways?
Reigning high above the heavens,
Reaching down in endless grace

You’re the lifter of the lowly,
Compassionate and kind,
You surround and You uphold me,
And Your promises are my delight
(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
Even what the enemy means for evil,
You turn it for our good,
You turn it for our good
And for Your glory;
Even in the valley You are faithful,
You’re working for our good,
You’re working for our good,
And for Your glory

Love Changes Everything

Love Changes Everything
©2015 Red Rocks Church. CCLI Song #7056919
STUDIO VERSION

I see His body breaking
I see His body bleed
I see the darkness tremble
At the ground below His feet
And in the darkest hours there on Calvary
I see the Light come breaking
Breaking beautifully, Breaking beautifully

CHORUS:
So come out into the waters,
Come let the broken sing,
Come all you sons and daughters,
His love changes everything,
Come when the fear is fighting
Run to the risen King,
Come on and let the light in
Your love changes everything

And when the heavens opened
I saw the sins of men,
Become a crown of glory
As You died and rose again,
And in the darkest hours
And in the valley low
I will fear no evil
‘Cause You’ll never let me go
You’ll never let me go
(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
Your love, Your love, Your love changes everything
Your love, Your love, Your love changes everything
And none can overcome me, death has lost its sting
Your love, Your love, Your love
