Joy of the Lord

Verse 1
Though the tears may fall my song will rise
My song will rise to You
Though my heart may fail my song will rise
My song will rise to You
While there’s breath in my lungs
I will praise You Lord

Verse 2
In the dead of night I’ll lift my eyes
I’ll lift my eyes to You
When the waters rise I’ll lift my eyes
I’ll lift my eyes to You
While there’s hope in this heart
I will praise You Lord

Chorus
The joy of the Lord is my strength
The joy of the Lord is my strength
In the darkness I’ll dance
In the shadows I’ll sing
The joy of the Lord is my strength

Verse 3
When I cannot see You with my eyes
Let faith arise to You
When I cannot feel Your hand in mine
Let faith arise to You
God of mercy and love I will praise You Lord

Verse 4
Oh You shine with glory Lord of light
I feel alive with You
In Your presence now I come alive
I am alive with You
There is strength when I say
I will praise You Lord

Bridge
When sorrow comes my way
You are the shield around me
Always You remain
My courage in the fight
I hear You call my name Jesus I am coming
Walking on the waves reaching for Your light

God Always Keeps His Promises

Verse 1
Oh God He always keeps His promises
He said the sons of Abraham
Would be more than the grains of sand
And so his fam'ly grew
Underneath the Pharaoh's rule

Verse 2
Oh God He always keeps His promises
He said the blood upon the door
Would keep the Israelites secure
And so He stayed His hand
And led them to the Promised Land

Chorus
Our God is good and true
He cannot lie to me and you
We can be sure of this
God always keeps His promises

Verse 3
Oh God He always keeps His promises
He gave us laws to be obeyed
And we broke ev'ry one He made
But when we ran from Him
God said He'd take care of our sin

Verse 4
Oh God He always keeps His promises
He said His Son would set us free
Through His death at Calvary
He suffered in our place
And then He rose up from the grave

Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery

Verse 1
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
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

Verse 2
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
He the perfect Son of Man
In His living in His suff'ring
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

Verse 3
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
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

Verse 4
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
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 deliv'rance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when He comes

Love Divine

Verse 1
Love divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, to earth come down,
fix in us your humble dwelling,
all your faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, you are all compassion,
pure, unbounded love impart;
visit us with your salvation,
enter every trembling heart.

Verse 2
Come, almighty to deliver,
let us all your grace receive;
suddenly return, and never,
never more your temples leave.
We would always give you blessing,
serve you as your hosts above,
pray, and praise you without ceasing,
glory in your perfect love.

Verse 3
Finish then your new creation;
pure and spotless let us be;
let us see your great salvation,
perfect in eternity:
Changed from glory into glory
till in heaven we take our place,
there to sing salvation's story
lost in wonder, love, and praise!

Lord I Need You

Verse 1
Lord I come I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
And without You I fall apart
You're the one that guides my heart

Chorus
Lord I need You oh I need You
Ev'ry hour I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You

Verse 2
Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are Lord I am free
Holiness is Christ in me
Where You are Lord I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

(Bridge)
So teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus You're my hope and stay
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus You're my hope and stay

Chorus
Lord I need You oh I need You
Ev'ry hour I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You

Psalm 34

Verse 1
I sought the Lord and He answered me
And delivered me from every fear
Those who look on Him are radiant
They'll never be ashamed
They'll never be ashamed

Verse 2
This poor man cried and the Lord heard me
And saved me from my enemies
The Son of God surrounds His saints
He will deliver them
He will deliver them

Chorus
Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever

Verse 3
O taste and see that the Lord is good
O blessed is he who hides in Him
O fear the Lord O all you saints
He'll give you everything
He'll give you everything

(Bridge)
Let us bless the Lord
Every day and night
Never ending praise
May our incense rise

When my heart is overwhelmed
I will look to You alone

Through it all You've never failed me

You are the strength of my heart
You are the strength of my heart
I can rely on You

When I've struggled to believe
You have not let go of me

Carried through the darkest storms
You have held me in Your arms
God my rock God my rock God my rock

You are the strength of my heart

You are the joy of my life
You are my song in the night
There is no one as true
Jesus I trust in You

Jesus we trust in You
Jesus we trust in You
Jesus we trust in You
Jesus we trust in You God

What a Friend We Have in Jesus

Verse 1
What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer
Oh what peace we often forfeit
Oh what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer

Verse 2
Have we trials and temptations
Is there trouble anywhere
Jesus Savior is our refuge
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Are we weak and heavy-laden
Cumbered with a load of care
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Chorus
Oh what a friend
O what a friend in Jesus

Verse 3
Blessed Savior you have promised
All our burdens you will bear
May we ever Lord be bringing
All to You in earnest prayer
Soon in glory bright unclouded
Face to face will be our prayer
Joyful praise and endless worship
Will be our sweet portion there
