Song Lyrics For Sunday, May 19

Come Praise and Glorify
Words and Music: Bob Kauflin, Tim Chester

Come praise and glorify our God,
The Father of our Lord.
In Christ He has in heav'nly realms
His blessings on us poured.
For pure and blameless in His sight
He destined us to be,
And now we've been adopted through
His Son eternally!

Chorus
To the praise of Your glory,
To the praise of Your mercy and grace.
To the praise of Your glory,
You are the God who saves!

Come praise and glorify our God,
Who gives His grace in Christ.

In Him our sins are washed away,
Redeemed through sacrifice.
In Him God has made known to us
The myst'ry of His will
That Christ should be the head of all,
His purpose to fulfill.

Come praise and glorify our God,
For we've believed the Word.
And through our faith we have a seal--
The Spirit of the Lord.
The Spirit guarantees our hope
Until redemption's done,
Until we join in endless praise
To God the Three in One!

Rock of Ages
Words and Music: Augustus Toplady, Thomas Hastings

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy riven side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Cleanse me from its guilt and power

Not the labors of my hands,
Can fulfill Thy law's demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save and Thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked come to Thee for dress,
Helpless look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me Savior or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

Wonderful, Merciful, Savior
Words and Music: Eric Wyse and Dawn Rogers

Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and friend
Who would have thought that a lamb could Rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost the way
Oh, we hopelessly lost the way

Chorus
You are the one that we praise
You are the one we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne

Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)
Words and Music: Chris Tomlin, John Newton, Louie Giglio

Amazing grace how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me;
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Chorus
My chains are gone, I've been set free
My God my savior, has ransomed me
And like a flood his mercy reigns
Unending love, amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God who called me here below will be forever mine
will be forever mine
You are forever mine.

Set My Soul Afire
Words and Music: Gene Bartlett

Set my soul afire, Lord,
for Thy holy Word,
Burn it deep within me,
let Thy voice be heard;
Millions grope in darkness
in this day and hour,
I will be a witness,
fill me with Thy pow’r.

Chorus
Set my soul afire, Lord,
set my soul afire,

Make my life a witness
of Thy saving pow’r.

Millions grope in darkness,
waiting for Thy Word,

Set my soul afire, Lord,
set my soul afire.

Set my soul afire, Lord,
for the lost in sin,
Give to me a passion,
as I seek to win;
Help me not to falter,
never let me fail,
Fill me with Thy spirit,
let Thy will prevail.

Set my soul afire, Lord,
in my daily life,
Far too long I’ve wandered
in this day of strife;
Nothing else will matter
but to live for Thee,
I will be a witness,
for Christ lives in me.
