A Debtor to Mercy Alone

VERSE 1 
A debtor to mercy alone 
Of covenant mercy I sing 
I come with Your righteousness on 
My humble offering to bring 
The judgments of Your holy law 
With me can have nothing to do 
My Savior’s obedience and blood 
Hide all my transgressions 
From view 

VERSE 2 
The work which Your goodness began 
The arm of Your strength will complete 
Your promise is yes and amen 
And never was forfeited yet 
The future or things that are now 
No power below or above 
Can make You Your purpose forego 
Or sever my soul from Your love 

VERSE 3 
My name from the palms of Your hands 
Eternity will not erase 
Impressed on Your heart it remains 
In marks of indelible grace 
Yes I, to the end will endure 
Until I bow down at Your throne 
Forever and always secure 
Forever and always secure 
Forever and always secure 
A debtor to mercy alone

Afflicted Saint, to Christ Draw Near

VERSE 1
Afflicted saint, to Christ draw near,
Your Savior’s gracious promise hear;
His faithful Word you can believe:
That as your days your strength shall be.

VERSE 2
Your faith is weak, your foes are strong,
And if the conflict should be long,
The Lord will make the tempter flee
That as your days your strength shall be.

REFRAIN
So, sing with joy, afflicted one;
The battle’s fierce, but the victory’s won!
God shall supply all that you need;
Yes, as your days your strength shall be.

VERSE 3
Should persecution rage and flame,
Still trust in your Redeemer’s name.
In fiery trials you shall see
That as your days your strength shall be.

VERSE 4
When called to bear your weighty cross
Or sore affliction, pain, or loss,
Or deep distress or poverty,
Still as your days your strength shall be.

All Glory Be Forever

VERSE 1 
We had turned from God to sin’s disgrace 
We chose the path to hell 
Perfect law of God condemned our race 
For all in Adam fell 
But the righteousness of God appeared 
And the world found hope again 
For the Righteous One has come down to bear 
All the curse of sin and death 

CHORUS 
Now to Him Who's seated on the throne 
All glory be forever 
Oh, the depths of wisdom, grace, and power 
All glory be forever 
All glory be forever 

VERSE 2 
Every bond of sin that held us fast 
Is left in Jesus’ grave 
We’ve been freed from all that gripped our past 
From Satan’s rule and reign 
We’ve been raised to life to breathe again 
As captives now reclaimed 
All our guilt is gone, all our striving ceased 
We’re alive to seek His fame 

VERSE 3 
Now our future’s fixed, our journey clear 
God will not let us go 
Every trial that tempts our hearts to fear 
He’ll use to give us hope 
All creation groans as we await 
What our eyes have longed to see 
Every pain and evil we’ve long endured 
Will be crushed by Christ our King

All I Have Is Christ

Verse 1
I once was lost in darkest night 
Yet thought I knew the way 
The sin that promised joy and life 
Had led me to the grave 
I had no hope that You would own 
A rebel to Your will 
And if You had not loved me first 
I would refuse You still 

Verse 2
But as I ran my hell-bound race 
Indifferent to the cost 
You looked upon my helpless state 
And led me to the cross 
And I beheld God’s love displayed 
You suffered in my place 
You bore the wrath reserved for me 
Now all I know is grace 

Chorus 
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ 
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life 

Verse 3
Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone 
And live so all might see 
The strength to follow Your commands 
Could never come from me 
O Father, use my ransomed life 
In any way You choose 
And let my song forever be 
My only boast is You

All Is Well

We wrote this song to bring comfort and hope in the midst of trials as we remind ourselves of God’s great love. A number of scriptures were in our thoughts as we wrote the song, including 1 John 4:9, 2 Corinthians 4:6, Romans 8:31–39, and John 16:33. Our sovereign God, who loves each of us in Christ, is working good in everything, and though we don’t always see the good, we can always trust Him. — Steve & Vikki 

VERSE 1 
The sun beams on behind the clouds 
And in the dark still grace abounds 
All is well because of God’s great love 
The road of disappointment runs 
Where unseen mercies wait for us 
And all is well because of God’s great love 

CHORUS 
How brightly shines the love of the Father 
In our Savior, Jesus Christ 
With faithful hands He fulfills every promise 
He will never leave our side 

VERSE 2 
He feels our weakness, knows our need 
And for our good He intercedes 
All is well because of God’s great love 
Through every failure, every fear 
The Lord of comfort draws us near 
And all is well because of God’s great love 

VERSE 3 
His coming soon will fill the sky 
And all that’s wrong will be made right 
With newborn eyes we will behold 
The glory of the risen Lord 
All will be well because of God’s great love 
Yes, all is well because of God’s great love

All Praise to Him

VERSE 1 
All praise to Him, the God of light 
Who formed the mountains by His might 
All praise to Him Who names the stars 
That sing His fame in skies afar 
All praise to Him Who reigns in love 
Who guides the galaxies above 
Yet bends to hear our every prayer 
With sovereign pow’r and tender care 

VERSE 2 
All praise to Him whose love is seen 
In Christ the Son, the Servant King 
Who left behind His glorious throne 
To pay the ransom for His own 
All praise to Him Who humbly came 
To bear our sorrow, sin, and shame 
Who lived to die, Who died to rise 
The all-sufficient sacrifice 

VERSE 3 
All praise to Him whose pow’r imparts 
The love of God within our hearts 
The Spirit of all truth and peace 
The fount of joy and holiness 
To Father, Son, and Spirit now 
Our souls we lift, our wills we bow 
To You, the triune God, we raise 
With loving hearts our song of praise

Christ Begins

1 We stand and we watch on the bank, wide-eyed.
Water runs and all heaven opens wide,
and a voice like thunder replies.

Here’s my Prophet, my Priest, my King,
a light in the dark, Christ steps in;
here’s my Savior, my God, my King,
the time has come, Christ begins.

2 Mary’s whispering, but it’s not the time.
Yet six jars are filled with the finest wine.
Tell me, who is this by our side? Here’s my…

3 See the sun outshined on the hill and hide.
Clothes like lightning white, heaven opens wide,
and a voice like thunder replies. Here’s my…

4 We stand, gathered ’round on the mountainside.
Watch the closing clouds hide him from our eyes;
with a voice united we cry: Here’s my…

Come, Behold the Wondrous Mystery

Come behold the wondrous mystery, in the dawning of the King 
He the theme of heaven’s praises, robed in frail humanity 
In our longing, in our darkness, now the light of life has come 
Look to Christ, who condescended, took on flesh to ransom us. 

Come behold the wondrous mystery, he the perfect Son of Man 
In his living, in his suffering, never trace nor stain of sin 
See the true and better Adam, come to save the hell-bound man 
Christ the great and sure fulfillment of the law, in him we stand. 

Come behold the wondrous mystery, Christ the Lord upon the tree 
In the stead of ruined sinners hangs the Lamb in victory 
See the price of our redemption, see the Father’s plan unfold 
Bringing many sons to glory, grace unmeasured, love untold 

Come behold the wondrous mystery, slain by death the God of life 
But no grave could e’er restrain him, praise the Lord, He is alive 
What a foretaste of deliverance, how unwavering our hope 
Christ in power resurrected, as will we be when he comes.

Dawning Light of Our Salvation

Words: Wendell Kimbrough (c) 2012 Wendell Kimbrough 
Music: Bruce Benedict, (c) 2012 Cardiphonia 

lyrics

1. Long in darkness Israel wandered; 
Long in mortal shadows, we 
Walked in bondage and self-pity, 
Trod in paths of sin and grief. 
In the prophets’ words He told us, 
Long the God of Israel spoke; 
He alone in strength would save us 
From the hands of all our foes. 

Every valley be exalted! 
Every mountain be made plane! 
Crooked ways repent and straighten; 
All creation bend in praise! 

2. He shall raise a mighty Savior; 
Born of David’s lineage, He 
Comes in cov’nant love to claim us 
From our sins to set us free. 
Light to those who dwell in darkness 
Life to those from death who flee 
Joy unto the earth, and gladness, 
To your pathways dawning peace! 

Refrain 

3. Jesus, Lord, and mighty Savior, 
David’s Son and yet his King, 
Dawning light of our salvation, 
Of your saving pow’r we sing! 
Stand, Oh lame, and dance ye broken, 
Know the Savior’s healing grace; 
Come, Oh deaf and hear him singing; 
Turn, Oh blind, behold his face! 

Refrain

He Will Hold Me Fast

VERSE 1 
When I fear my faith will fail, 
Christ will hold me fast; 
When the tempter would prevail, 
He will hold me fast. 
I could never keep my hold 
Through life’s fearful path; 
For my love is often cold; 
He must hold me fast. 

REFRAIN 
He will hold me fast, 
He will hold me fast; 
For my Savior loves me so, 
He will hold me fast. 

VERSE 2 
He has called me His delight, 
Christ will hold me fast; 
Precious in His holy sight, 
He will hold me fast. 
He’ll not let my soul be lost; 
His promises shall last; 
Bought by Him at such a cost, 
He will hold me fast. 

VERSE 3 
For my life He bled and died, 
Christ will hold me fast; 
Justice has been satisfied; 
He will hold me fast. 
Raised with Him to endless life, 
He will hold me fast 
‘Till our faith is turned to sight 
When He comes at last!

His Mercy Is More

[Verse 1]
What love could remember, no wrongs we have done
Omniscient all-knowing, He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea, without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

[Chorus]
Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

[Verse 2]
What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father so tender is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

[Verse 3]
What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment, His life was the cost
We stood 'neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more


I Will Glory in My Redeemer

VERSE 1 
I will glory in my Redeemer 
Whose priceless blood has ransomed me 
Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails 
And hung Him on that judgment tree 
I will glory in my Redeemer 
Who crushed the power of sin and death 
My only Savior before the holy Judge 
The Lamb who is my righteousness 
The Lamb who is my righteousness 

VERSE 2 
I will glory in my Redeemer 
My life He bought, my love He owns 
I have no longings for another 
I’m satisfied in Him alone 
I will glory in my Redeemer 
His faithfulness my standing place 
Though foes are mighty and rush upon me 
My feet are firm, held by His grace 
My feet are firm, held by His grace 

VERSE 3 
I will glory in my Redeemer 
Who carries me on eagles’ wings 
He crowns my life with lovingkindness 
His triumph song I’ll ever sing 
I will glory in my Redeemer 
Who waits for me at gates of gold 
And when He calls me, it will be paradise 
His face forever to behold 
His face forever to behold

I Will Rise

There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

There's a day that's drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

Immovable Our Hope Remains

When I first came across this ten verse Augustus Toplady hymn “Immovable Our Hope Remains,” I was significantly affected by the confident faith the lyrics expressed. I rearranged, rephrased, and trimmed down the hymn into four verses. Later on, my dad came across my lyrics on our piano and set them to a melody that tries to capture the triumph of the words. No matter how we feel, no matter how hopeless or unsure our future appears, no matter what lies Satan uses to weaken our hearts, our hope is immovable. Jesus is already in heaven, and we are in Christ! — Brittany 

VERSE 1 
Immovable our hope remains 
Though shifting sands before us lie 
The One who washed away our stains 
Shall bear us safely to the skies 
The floods may rise, the winds may beat 
Torrential rains descend 
Yet God His own will not forget 
He’ll love and keep us till the end 
You’ll love and keep us till the end 

VERSE 2 
This is eternal life: to know 
The living God and Christ, the Son 
The Savior will not let us go 
Until His saving work is done 
Our debt was great, as was our need 
But now the price is paid 
Who can behold Immanuel bleed 
And doubt His willingness to save? 
We trust Your willingness to save 

VERSE 3 
The Lord acquits, who can condemn? 
Though Satan’s accusations fly 
His pow’r can never reach our names 
To blot them from the Book of Life 
The Son has surely made us free 
His Word forever stands 
And all our joy is knowing we 
Are graven on His wounded hands 
We’re graven on Your wounded hands 

VERSE 4 
Built into Christ, secure we stand 
For with His Spirit we’ve been sealed 
By grace we’ll see the promised land 
Where every sorrow shall be healed 
To God who gave His only Son 
To Jesus Christ, our Lord 
To God the Spirit, Three-in-one 
Be songs of praise forevermore 
We’ll sing Your praise forevermore

Jesus, Thank You

VERSE 1 
The mystery of the cross I cannot comprehend 
The agonies of Calvary 
You the perfect Holy One, crushed Your Son 
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me 

CHORUS 
Your blood has washed away my sin 
Jesus, thank You 
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied 
Jesus, thank You 
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table 
Jesus, thank You 

VERSE 2 
By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near 
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend 
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace 
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end 

BRIDGE 
Lover of my soul 
I want to live for You

My Soul Finds Rest in God Alone

My soul finds rest in God alone,
My Rock and my salvation;
A fortress strong against my foes,
And I will not be shaken.
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse,
And lies like arrows pierce me,
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness,
I’ll look to Him who hears me.

O praise Him, hallelujah,
My Delight and my reward;
Everlasting, never failing,
My Redeemer, my God.

Find rest, my soul, in God alone
Amid the world’s temptations;
When evil seeks to take a hold
I’ll cling to my salvation.
Though riches come and riches go,
Don’t set your heart upon them;
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven.

I’ll set my gaze on God alone
And trust in Him completely;
With every day pour out my soul
And He will prove His mercy.
Though life is but a fleeting breath,
A sigh too brief to measure,
My King has crushed the curse of death
And I am His forever.

O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer

VERSE 1 
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer 
Greatest treasure of my longing soul 
My God, like You there is no other 
True delight is found in You alone 
Your grace, a well too deep to fathom 
Your love exceeds the heavens’ reach 
Your truth, a fount of perfect wisdom 
My highest good and my unending need 

VERSE 2 
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer 
Strong defender of my weary heart 
My sword to fight the cruel deceiver 
And my shield against his hateful darts 
My song when enemies surround me 
My hope when tides of sorrow rise 
My joy when trials are abounding 
Your faithfulness, my refuge in the night 

VERSE 3 
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer 
Gracious Savior of my ruined life 
My guilt and cross laid on Your shoulders 
In my place You suffered bled and died 
You rose, the grave and death are conquered 
You broke my bonds of sin and shame 
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer 
May all my days bring glory to Your Name

Reformation Song

VERSE 1 
Your Word alone is solid ground, 
The mighty rock on which we build; 
In every line the truth is found 
And every page with glory filled. 

VERSE 2 
Through faith alone we come to You; 
We have no merit we can claim. 
Sure that Your promises are true, 
We place our hope in Jesus’ name. 

REFRAIN 
Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone; 
Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone. 

VERSE 3 
In Christ alone we’re justified; 
His righteousness is all our plea; 
Your law’s demands are satisfied; 
His perfect work has set us free. 

VERSE 4 
By grace alone we have been saved; 
All that we are has come from You. 
Hearts that were once by sin enslaved 
Now by Your pow’r have been made new.

Lyrics

He's our rescuer
He's our rescuer
We are free from sin forevermore
Oh how sweet the sound
Oh how grace abounds
We will praise the Lord our rescuer

There is good news for the captive
Good news for the shamed
There is good news for the one who walked away
There is good news for the doubter
The one religion failed
For the Good Lord has come to seek and save

He's our rescuer
He's our rescuer
We are free from sin forevermore
Oh how sweet the sound
Oh how grace abounds
We will praise the Lord our rescuer

He is beauty for the blind man
Riches for the poor
He is friendship for the one the world ignores
He is pasture for the weary
Rest for those who strive
Oh, the Good Lord is the way, the truth, the life
Yes the Good Lord is the way, the truth, the life

He's our rescuer (hey)
He's our rescuer (hey)
We are free from sin forever more
Oh how sweet the sound (hey)
Oh how grace abounds (hey)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer

So come and be chainless
Come and be fearless
Come to the foot of Calvary
There is redemption
For every affliction
Here at the foot of Calvary

So come and be chainless
Come and be fearless
Come to the foot of Calvary
'Cause there is redemption
For every affliction
Here at the foot of Calvary

Oh, he's our rescuer (hey)
He's our rescuer (hey)
And we are free from sin forever more
Oh how sweet the sound (hey)
Oh how grace abounds (hey)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer
We will praise the Lord our rescuer

The Lord's My Shepherd, I'll Not Want

The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want;
He makes me lie in pastures green.
He leads me by the still, still waters,
His goodness restores my soul.

And I will trust in You alone,
And I will trust in You alone,
For Your endless mercy follows me,
Your goodness will lead me home.

He guides my ways in righteousness,
And He anoints my head with oil,
And my cup, it overflows with joy,
I feast on His pure delights.

And though I walk the darkest path,
I will not fear the evil one,
For You are with me, and Your rod and staff
Are the comfort I need to know.
