GREATER THAN WE CAN IMAGINE

Verse 1

Every day we’ll bless You and praise Your name

And on Your glorious splendor we will dwell

On Your wondrous works, Lord, we’ll meditate

And of Your awesome power we will tell

We’ll speak of Your salvation

And Your abundant goodness

 

Chorus

Because You are greater than we can imagine

You are too beautiful for us to fathom

Oh You are great and greatly to be praised

 

Verse 2

Every generation shall sing Your worth

And magnify Your mercy and Your grace

We’ll sing about the Savior who came to earth

To bear the sins of those He came to save

You fill our hearts with wonder

We’ll worship You forever

 

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.

 

Chorus:

He will hold me fast,

He will hold me fast;

For my Savior loves me so,

He will hold me fast!

 

Verse 2:

Those He saves are 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!

WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS

Verse 1:

When I survey the wondrous cross

On which the Prince of glory died,

My richest gain I count but loss,

And pour contempt on all my pride.

 

Verse 2:

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,

Save in the death of Christ my God!

All the vain things that charm me most,

I sacrifice them to His blood.

 

Chorus:

My chains are gone, I’ve been set free

My God, my Sa – vior has ransomed me

And like a flood, His mercy rains

Unending love Amazing Grace

 

Verse 3:

See from His head, His hands, His feet,

Sorrow and love flow mingled down!

Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,

Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

 

Verse 4:

Were the whole realm of nature mine,

That were a offer – ing far too small;

Love so ama – zing, so divine,

Demands my soul, my life, my all.

 

Chorus:

My chains are gone, I’ve been set free

My God, my Sa – vior has ransomed me

And like a flood, His mercy rains

Unending love Amazing Grace

Sermon: “The Sweet Sorrow of Repentance”

Doug Plank

 

Closing song

COME THOU FOUNT

Verse 1:

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing

Tune my heart to sing Thy grace

Streams of mercy, never ceasing,

Call for songs of loudest praise

Teach me some melodious sonnet

Sung by flaming tongues above

Praise the name! I’m fixed upon it

Name of Thy redeeming love

 

Verse 2:

Hitherto Thy love has blessed me

Thou hast drawn me to this place

And I know Thy hand will lead me

Safely home by Thy good grace

Jesus sought me when a stranger

Wandering from the fold of God

He, to rescue me from danger

Interposed His precious blood

 

Verse 3:

O to grace how great a debtor

Daily I’m constrained to be!

Let that grace now, like a fetter

Bind my wandering heart to Thee

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it

Prone to leave the God I love

Here’s my heart, O take and seal it

Seal it for Thy courts above.

 

Verse 4:

On that day when freed from sinning

I shall see Thy lovely face

Clothed then in blood-washed linen

How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace

Come my Lord, no longer tarry

Bring Thy promises to pass

For I know Thy pow’r will keep me

Till I’m home with Thee at last
