  1. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 10/25/20

    Surely Goodness and Mercy

    You prepare a table before me, in the presence of my enemies
    You anoint my head with oil, and my cup, it overflows

    With love, peace, and joy (2x)

    Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
    All the days of my life, all the days of my life
    And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    Forever, forever, forever, amen; Forever, forever, forever, amen

     

    Shout to the Lord

    My Jesus, my Savior, Lord, there is none like You
    All of my days I want to praise the wonders of Your mighty love.
    My comfort, my Shelter, Tower of refuge and strength
    Let ev’ry breath, all that I am, never cease to worship You

    Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing, power and majesty, praise to the King
    Mountains bow down and the seas will roar, at the sound of Your name
    I sing for joy at the work of Your hands, forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand
    Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

    Nothing compares to the promise I have (x3) – In you

     

    Goodness of God

    I love You Lord, Oh, Your mercy never fails me
    All my days I’ve been held in Your hands
    From the moment that I wake up
    Until I lay my head, I will sing of the goodness of God

    All my life You have been faithful
    All my life You have been so, so good
    With every breath that I am able
    I will sing of the goodness of God

    I love Your voice
    You have led me through the fire, in darkest night
    You are close like no other
    I’ve known You as a father, I’ve known You as a friend
    I have lived in the goodness of God

    Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me (2X)
    With my life laid down
    I’m surrendered now
    I give You everything
    Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

     

    Build My Life

    Worthy of ev’ry song we could ever sing
    Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
    Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe
    We live for You

    Jesus, the name above ev’ry other name
    Jesus, the only one who could ever save
    Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe
    We live for You
    We live for You

    Holy, there is no one like You
    There is none beside You
    Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are
    And fill me with Your heart
    And lead me in Your love to those around me

    I will build my life upon Your love
    It is a firm foundation
    I will put my trust in You alone
    And I will not be shaken

      

    Worthy Of It All

    All the saints and angels
    They bow before Your throne
    All the elders cast their crowns
    Before the Lamb of God and sing

    You are worthy of it all
    You are worthy of it all
    For from You are all things
    And to You are all things
    You deserve the glory

    Singing oh oh oh oh oh

    Day and night, night and day let incense arise
    Day and night, night and day let incense arise
    Day and night, night and day let incense arise
    Day and night, night and day let incense arise

    Oh oh oh oh

  3. Enduring Suffering for Doing What is Good, Associating with Christ

    1 Peter 2:18-20

    18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust. 19 For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God.

    1 Peter 3:13-17

    13 Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, 15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.

  4. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 10/18/20

    The Steadfast Love

    The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
    His mercies never come to an end
    They are new every morning, new every morning
    Great is Thy faithfulness, oh Lord
    Great is Thy faithfulness

     

    Had It Not Been

    Had it not been the Lord who was on our side
    Had it not been the Lord who was on our side
    The anger of the enemy would have swallowed us alive
    Had it not been the Lord who was on our side.

    Had it not been the Lord who was on our side
    Had it not been the Lord who was on our side
    The waters would have engulfed us, we would have surely died
    Had it not been the Lord who was on our side.

    Blessed be the Lord who would not give us up
    Blessed be the Lord for His unfailing love
    The snare is broken and we have escaped
    Our help is in the name of the Lord. Blessed be the Lord!
     

    Break Every Chain

    There is power in the name of Jesus
    There is power in the name of Jesus
    There is power in the name of Jesus
    To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

    There’s an army rising up
    There’s an army rising up
    There’s an army rising up
    To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

    All sufficient sacrifice so freely given such a price
    For our redemption, Heaven’s gates swing wide

     
    To Our God

    Up from the ashes Your love has brought us
    Out of the darkness into the light
    Lifting our sorrows
    Bearing our burdens healing our hearts

    To our God we lift up one voice
    To our God we lift up one song
    To our God we lift up one voice
    Singing Hallelujah

    Chains have been broken eyes have been opened
    An army of dry bones is starting to rise
    Death is defeated
    We are victorious for You are alive

    We’ll make His praise glorious, glorious, glorious
    For His name is glorious, glorious, glorious
    Make His praise glorious, glorious, glorious
    Shout His name glorious, glorious, glorious

     
    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

    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

    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 2X

    Death could not hold You
    The veil tore before You
    You silenced 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

    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

  5. Born Again to a Living Hope: The Lord is Good Even in the Times of Trial

    1 Peter 1:3-9

    Born Again to a Living Hope

    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

    1 Peter 1:10-16

    10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, 11 inquiring what person or time[a] the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. 12 It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.

    Called to Be Holy

    13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action,[b] and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

    1 Peter 1:17-19

    17 And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.

    1 Peter 1:20-21

    20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you 21 who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

    1 Peter 1:22-25

    22 Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 23 since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God;

    24 for

    “All flesh is like grass
    and all its glory like the flower of grass.
    The grass withers,
    and the flower falls,

    25 

    but the word of the Lord remains forever.”

    And this word is the good news that was preached to you.

    1 Peter 2:1-5

    A Living Stone and a Holy People

    So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.

    As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

    1 Peter 2:6-10

    For it stands in Scripture:

    “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone,
    a cornerstone chosen and precious,
    and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”

    So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe,

    “The stone that the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone,”[
    a]

    and

    “A stone of stumbling,
    and a rock of offense.”

    They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.

    But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
