  1. Lyrics For Worship on the Lawn 11/15/20

    Beautiful
    I see Your face in every 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

    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

    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

    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

     

    Ever Be
    Your love is devoted like a ring of solid gold
    Like a vow that is tested, like a covenant of old
    And Your love is enduring through the winter rain
    And beyond the horizon with mercy for today
    Faithful You have been and faithful You will be
    You pledge yourself to me and it’s why I sing

    Your praise will ever be on my lips, ever be on my lips (x4)

    You father the orphan
    Your kindness makes us whole
    And You shoulder our weakness
    And Your strength becomes our own
    Now You’re making me like You
    Clothing me in white
    Bringing beauty from ashes
    For You will have Your bride
    Free of all her guilt and rid of all her shame
    And known by her true name and it’s why I sing

    You will be praised, You will be praised
    With angels and saints we sing worthy are You Lord (x4)
    And it’s why I sing

     

    Is He Worthy
    Do you feel the world is broken? (We do)
    Do you feel the shadows deepen? (We do)
    But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through? (We do)
    Do you wish that you could see it all made new? (We do)

    Is all creation groaning? (It is)
    Is a new creation coming? (It is)
    Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst? (It is)
    Is it good that we remind ourselves of this? (It is)

    Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole? Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
    The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave
    He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
    Is He worthy? Is He worthy
    Of all blessing and honor and glory?
    Is He worthy of this? He is

    Does the Father truly love us? (He does)
    Does the Spirit move among us? (He does)
    And does Jesus our Messiah hold forever those He loves? (He does)
    Does our God intend to dwell again with us? (He does)

    Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole? Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
    The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave
    He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
    From every people and tribe, every nation and tongue
    He has made us a kingdom and priests to God to reign with the Son
    Is He worthy? Is He worthy
    Of all blessing and honor and glory
    Is He worthy? Is He worthy? Is He worthy of this? He is!
    Is He worthy? Is He worthy? He is! He is!

     

    Even So Come
    All of creation, All of the earth
    Make straight a highway, A path for the Lord
    Jesus is coming soon
    Call back the sinner, Wake up the saint
    Let every nation shout of Your fame
    Jesus is coming soon

    Like a bride waiting for her groom
    We’ll be a Church ready for You
    Every heart longing for our King
    We sing “even so come”
    Lord Jesus, come
    Even so come, Lord Jesus, come

    There will be justice, all will be new
    Your name forever, faithful and true
    Jesus is coming soon

    So we wait, we wait for You
    God, we wait, You’re coming soon

     

    How Great Is Our God
    The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
    Let all the Earth rejoice
    All the Earth rejoice
    He wraps himself in light
    And darkness tries to hide
    And trembles at His voice
    Trembles at His voice

    How great is our God, sing with me
    How great is our God, and all will see
    How great, how great is our God

    Age to age He stands
    And time is in His hands
    Beginning and the end
    The Godhead Three in One
    Father Spirit Son
    The Lion and the Lamb, The Lion and the Lamb

    Name above all names
    Worthy of our praise
    My heart will sing
    How great is our God

  4. The Servant Songs: Magnify Jesus From The Book of Isaiah

    Isaiah Lived 750 BC – 680 BC – 8th Century BC

    The Servant Songs

    First century Christians quote Isaiah more than any other Old Testament text.

    The Lord‘s Chosen Servant

    42 Behold my servant, whom I uphold,
        my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
    I have put my Spirit upon him;
        he will bring forth justice to the nations.
    He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice,
        or make it heard in the street;
    a bruised reed he will not break,
        and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
        he will faithfully bring forth justice.
    He will not grow faint or be discouraged[a]
        till he has established justice in the earth;
        and the coastlands wait for his law.

  5. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 11/8/20

    Here for You

    Let our praise be Your welcome
    Let our songs be a sign
    We are here for You, We are here for You
    Let Your breath come from heaven
    Fill our hearts with Your life
    We are here for You, We are here for You

    To You our hearts are open, Nothing here is hidden
    You are our one desire, You alone are holy
    Only You are worthy, God let Your fire fall down

    Let our shout be Your anthem, Your renown fill the sky
    We are here for You, We are here for You
    Let Your Word move in power, Let what’s dead come to life
    We are here for You, We are here for You

    We welcome You with praise, We welcome You with praise
    Almighty God of love, Be welcome in this place
    Let every heart adore, Let every soul awake
    Almighty God of love, Be welcome in this place

     

    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

     

    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

    Amazing love, How can it be
    That You my king would die for me
    Amazing love, and I know it’s true
    It’s my joy to honor you
    In all I do I honor You

    You are my King (4x)

     
    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

    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

    You are good, good, oh (4X)

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

    O Jesus you’re the same, yesterday, today, forever
    Your faithfulness remains, and Your love endures forever

     

    Ever Be

    Your love is devoted like a ring of solid gold
    Like a vow that is tested like a covenant of old
    And Your love is enduring through the winter rain
    And beyond the horizon with mercy for today

    Faithful You have been and faithful You will be
    You pledge Yourself to me and it’s why I sing

    Your praise will ever be on my lips, ever be on my lips (4X)

    You Father the orphan, Your kindness makes us whole
    And You shoulder our weakness, And Your strength becomes our own
    Now You’re making me like You, Clothing me in white
    Bringing beauty from ashes, For You will have Your bride

    Free of all her guilt and rid of all her shame
    And known by her true name and it’s why I sing

    You will be praised, You will be praised, With angels and saints we sing “worthy are You Lord” (2X)

  6. The Passover Origin Story: The Price of Freedom is costly

    Our Freedom is Costly, Sudden, A Life-Long Pilgrimage

    Exodus 12:1-13

    12 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you. Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household. And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight.[a]

    “Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it. They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted, its head with its legs and its inner parts. 10 And you shall let none of it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn. 11 In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord’s Passover. 12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord. 13 The blood shall be a sign for you, on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt.
