    Nothing But the Blood

    What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
    What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Chorus: Oh! precious is the flow
    That makes me white as snow;
    No other fount I know,
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    For my pardon, this I see, Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
    For my cleansing this my plea, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Nothing can for sin atone, Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
    Naught of good that I have done, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    This is all my hope and peace, Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
    This is all my righteousness, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

      

    Lead Me to the Cross

    Savior, I come, I quiet my soul
    Remember redemption’s hill
    Where Your blood was spilled
    For my ransom

    Pre-Chorus: Everything I once held dear
    I count it all as loss

    Chorus:  Lead me to the cross where Your love poured out
    Bring me to my knees, Lord, I lay me down
    Rid me of myself, I belong to You
    Oh, lead me, lead me to the cross

    You were as I, tempted and tried, human
    The word became flesh, Bore my sin in death
    Now You’re risen

     

    Sweetly Broken

    To the cross I look, And to the cross I cling
    Of its suffering I do drink, Of its work I do sing
    On it my Savior, Both bruised and crushed
    Showed that God is love, And God is just

    Chorus:  At the cross You beckon me
    You draw me gently to my knees
    And I am lost for words, So lost in love
    I’m sweetly broken, Wholly surrendered

    What a priceless gift, Undeserved life
    Have I been given, Through Christ crucified
    You called me out of death, You called me into life
    And I was under Your wrath, Now through the cross I’m reconciled

    Bridge:  In awe of the cross I must confess
    How wondrous Your redeeming love
    And how great is Your faithfulness

      

    Knowing You

    All I once held dear, built my life upon
    All this world reveres and wars to own
    All I once thought gain I have counted loss
    Spent and worthless now, compared to this

    Chorus: Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You
    There is no greater thing
    You’re my all, You’re the best
    You’re my joy, my righteousness
    And I love You, Lord

    Now my heart’s desire is to know You more
    To be found in You and known as Yours
    To possess by faith what I could not earn
    All surpassing gift of righteousness

    Oh to know the power of Your risen life
    And to know You in Your sufferings
    To become like You in Your death, my Lord
    So with You to live and never die

     

    Great Are You, Lord

    You give life, You are love
    You bring light to the darkness
    You give hope, You restore every heart that is broken
    And great are You Lord

    Chorus:  It’s Your breath in our lungs
    So we pour out our praise
    We pour out our praise
    It’s Your breath in our lungs
    So we pour out our praise to You only

    Bridge: And all the earth will shout Your praise
    Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
    Great are You Lord

  2. Ten Days of Praise – Free at Waymakers.org

    Ten Days of Praise

    "/

    In conjunction with several other initiatives of prayer and worship from Passover to Pentecost, 2021, WayMakers has published a praise guide named Ten Days of Praise.

    Ten Days of Praise

    Ascension to Pentecost
    May 13-22, 2021

    For many, these ten days of worship and praise lead the way to March for Jesus celebrations on May 22, with the theme, “Worthy is the Lamb.” The prayers and praise expressions are embedded in a rich, but simple description of the ascension of Christ as King to fulfill all that God has purposed for all nations.

    Written by Steve Hawthorne, this praise guide is included in Seek God for the City 2021. But this praise guide is also being made available, at no cost, in a pdf format, making it easy to use on any device. Download the document, and let the praise begin!

    10,000 Reasons

    Chorus: Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul
    Worship His holy name
    Sing like never before, O my soul
    I’ll worship Your holy name

    The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning, It’s time to sing Your song again
    Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me, Let me be singing when the evening comes

    You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger, Your name is great and Your heart is kind
    For all Your goodness I will keep on singing, Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

    And on that day when my strength is failing, The end draws near and my time has come
    Still my soul will sing Your praise unending, Ten thousand years and then forevermore

     

    King of my Heart

    Let the King of my heart be the mountain where I run,
    The fountain I drink from, Oh, He is my song
    Let the King of my heart be the shadow where I hide,
    The ransom for my life, Oh, He is my song

    Chorus:            You are good, good, oh__ (4X)

    Let the King of my heart be the wind inside my sails,
    The anchor in the waves, Oh, He is my song
    Let the King of my heart be the fire inside my veins,
    The echo of my days, Oh, He is my song

    Bridge: You’re never gonna let, never gonna let me down (4X)

    End: O Jesus, You’re the same, yesterday, today, forever

    Your faithfulness remains, and Your love endures forever

     

    You Are My King

    I’m forgiven because You were forsaken
    I’m accepted, You were condemned
    I’m alive and well, Your Spirit is within me
    Because You died and rose again

    Chorus: Amazing love
    How can it be?
    That You my King would die for me
    Amazing love
    I know it’s true
    It’s my joy to honor You
    In all I do I honor You

    Ending: You are my King (4X)

     

    In Christ Alone

    In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song
    This Cornerstone, this solid Ground, Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
    What heights of love, what depths of peace, When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
    My Comforter, my All in All, Here in the love of Christ I stand

    In Christ alone who took on flesh, Fullness of God in helpless babe
    This gift of love and righteousness, Scorned by the ones He came to save
    Till on that cross as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied
    For every sin on Him was laid, Here in the death of Christ I live

    There in the ground His body lay, Light of the world by darkness slain
    Then bursting forth in glorious Day, Up from the grave He rose again
    And as He stands in victory, Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
    For I am His and He is mine, Bought with the precious blood of Christ

    No guilt in life, no fear in death, This is the power of Christ in me
    From life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny
    No power of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand
    Till He returns or calls me home, Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

     

    What a Beautiful Name

    You were the Word at the beginning
    One with God, the Lord Most High
    Your hidden glory in creation
    Now revealed in You our Christ

    Chorus 1: What a beautiful Name it is, What a beautiful Name it is
    The Name of Jesus Christ my King
    What a beautiful Name it is, Nothing compares to this
    What a beautiful Name it is, The Name of Jesus 

    You didn’t want heaven without us
    So Jesus, You brought heaven down
    My sin was great, Your love was greater
    What could separate us now?

    Chorus 2: What a wonderful Name it is, What a wonderful Name it is
    The Name of Jesus Christ my King
    What a wonderful Name it is, Nothing compares to this
    What a wonderful Name it is, The Name of Jesus

    Bridge: Death could not hold You, The veil tore before You
    You silence the boast of sin and grave
    The heavens are roaring, The praise of Your glory
    For You are raised to life again

    You have no rival, You have no equal
    Now and forever, God, You reign
    Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the glory
    Yours is the Name above all names!

    Chorus 3: What a powerful Name it is, What a powerful Name it is
    The Name of Jesus Christ my King
    What a powerful Name it is, Nothing can stand against
    What a powerful Name it is, The Name of Jesus

    Better is One Day

    How lovely is Your dwelling place. O Lord almighty
    For my soul longs and even faints for You
    For here my heart is satisfied, Within Your presence
    I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings

    Chorus:  Better is one day in Your courts
    Better is one day in Your house
    Better is one day in Your courts
    Than thousands elsewhere
    (Than thousands elsewhere)

    One thing I ask and I would seek: To see Your beauty
    To find You in the place Your glory dwells

    Bridge: My heart and flesh cry out
    For You the living God
    Your Spirit’s water to my soul
    I’ve tasted and I’ve seen
    Come once again to me
    I will draw near to You
    I will draw near to You to You

     

    I Will Serve You

    I will serve You because I love You, You have given life to me
    I was nothing until You found me, You have given life to me

    Heartaches, broken people, Ruined lives are why You died on Calvary
    Your touch is what I long for, You have given life to me

    You’re Beautiful

    I see Your face in ev’ry sunrise, The colors of the morning are inside Your eyes
    The world awakens in the light of the day, I look up to the sky and say
    You’re beautiful (Oh__) 

    I see Your power in the moonlit night, Where planets are in motion and galaxies are bright
    We are amazed in the light of the stars, It’s all proclaiming who You are
    You’re beautiful (Oh__)

    I see You there hanging on a tree, You bled and then You died
    And then You rose again for me
    Now You are sitting on Your heavenly throne, Soon we will be coming home
    You’re beautiful (Oh__)

    Bridge:             I see Your face, You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

    When we arrive at eternity’s shore, Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
    We’ll enter in as the wedding bells ring, Your bride will come together and we’ll sing
    You’re beautiful (Oh__)

     

    Lord, I Lift Your Name

    Lord, I lift Your name on high
    Lord, I love to sing Your praises
    I’m so glad You’re in my life
    I’m so glad You came to save us

    You came from heaven to earth, to show the way
    From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay
    From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky
    Lord, I lift Your name on high

     

    In the Secret

    In the secret, in the quiet place
    In the stillness You are there
    In the secret, in the quiet hour
    I wait only for You
    ‘Cause I want to know You more

    Chorus: I want to know You
    I want to hear Your voice
    I want to know You more
    I want to touch You
    I want to see Your face
    I want to know You more

    I am reaching for the highest goal
    That I might receive the prize
    Pressing onward
    Pushing every hindrance aside
    Out of my way
    ‘Cause I want to know You more
