  1. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 8/23

    Grace Like Rain

    Amazing grace, how sweet the sound; That saved a wretch like me
    And I once was lost but now I’m found; Was blind but now I see so clearly

    And Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
    And Hallelujah, and all my stains are washed away; They’re washed away

    ‘Twas grace that taught; My heart to fear; And grace my fears relieved
    How precious did that grace appear; The hour I first believed

    When we’ve been there ten thousand years; Bright shining as the sun
    We’ve no less days to sing Your praise; Than when we first begun

    King of Kings

    In the darkness, we were waiting; Without hope, without light
    ‘Til from Heaven You came running; There was mercy in Your eyes
    To fulfill the law and prophets; To a virgin came the Word
    From a throne of endless glory; To a cradle in the dirt

    Praise the Father, praise the Son; Praise the Spirit, three in one
    God of glory, Majesty; Praise forever to the King of Kings

    To reveal the kingdom coming; And to reconcile the lost
    To redeem the whole creation; You did not despise the cross
    For even in Your suffering; You saw to the other side
    Knowing this was our salvation; Jesus for our sake You died

    And the morning that You rose; All of Heaven held its breath
    ‘Til that stone was moved for good; For the Lamb had conquered death
    And the dead rose from their tombs; And the angels stood in awe
    For the souls of all who’d come; To the Father are restored

    And the church of Christ was born; Then the Spirit lit the flame
    Now this gospel truth of old; Shall not kneel, shall not faint
    By His blood and in His name; In His freedom I am free
    For the love of Jesus Christ; Who has resurrected me, ohh

    Christ Is Risen

    Let no one caught in sin remain; Inside the lie of inward shame
    We fix our eyes upon the cross; And run to Him who showed great love

    And bled for us; Freely You have bled for us

    Christ is risen from the dead; Trampling over death by death
    Come awake, come awake; Come and rise up from the grave

    Christ is risen from the dead; We are one with Him again
    Come awake, come awake; Come and rise up from the grave

    Beneath the weight of all our sin; You bowed to none but Heaven’s will
    No scheme of Hell, no scoffer’s crown; No burden great can hold You down

    In strength You reign; Forever let Your church proclaim

    O death, where is your sting?; O hell, where is your victory?
    O church, come stand in the light; The glory of God has defeated the night

    You Are My All In All

    You are my strength when I am weak; You are the treasure that I seek
    You are my all in all
    Seeking You as a precious jewel; Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
    You are my all in all

    Taking my sin, my cross, my shame; Rising again I bless Your name
    You are my all in all
    When I fall down You pick me up; When I am dry You fill my cup
    You are my all in all

    Jesus, Lamb of God; Worthy is Your name; Jesus, Lamb of God; Worthy is Your name

    The Stand

    You stood before creation; Eternity within Your hands

    And you spoke all life into motion; My soul now to stand

    You stood before my failure; And carried the cross for my shame
    My sin weighed upon Your shoulders; My soul now to stand

    So what can I say; And what could I do; But offer this heart O God; Completely to You

    So I’ll walk upon salvation; Your Spirit alive in me

    This life to declare Your promise; My soul now to stand

    So what can I say; What could I do; But offer this heart O God; Completely to You

    So I’ll stand; With arms high and heart abandoned; In awe of the One who gave it all
    So I’ll stand; My soul Lord to You surrendered; All I am is Yours

    The Steadfast Love of the Lord

    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 your faithfulness, O Lord

    great is your faithfulness!

    Praise Before My Breakthrough

    I know the tension of the now, I don’t always understand
    I don’t always get to see, Everything

    When I’m holding up my hands, When I’m counting every breath
    Lord, all I need to know is, You choose me, You choose me

    I’ll praise before my breakthrough, ‘Til my song becomes my triumph
    I will sing because I trust You, I will bring my heart, I will lift my song

    When I’m listening for Your voice, And I’m shutting out the noise
    I know that You will speak, Clearly

    When I’m living out my faith, When I’m stepping on the sea
    I know You take my hand, And walk with me, Walk with me

    He who came in power, He will come again,

    He who heals the sick, won’t He move again
    He who raised the dead, won’t He raise again, And I will sing, I will sing

    And I will sing because I trust You, And I’ll worship because I trust
    I sing because I love You, And I’ll bring my heart, I will lift my song

    I Will Exalt You, Lord

    Your Presence is all I need, It’s all I want, all I seek
    Without it, without it there’s no meaning

    Your Presence is the air I breathe, The song I sing, the love I need
    Without it, without it I’m not living

    I will exalt You, Lord, I will exalt You, Lord, There is no one like You God
    I will exalt You, Lord, I will exalt You, Lord, No other name be lifted high

    There will be no one like You, And no one beside You,                                        You alone are worthy of all praise

    Break Every Chain

    There is power in the name of Jesus (3X)
    To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain (2X)

    There’s an army rising up (3X)
    To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain (2X)

    There is power in the name of Jesus (3X)
    To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain (2X)

    There’s an army rising up (3X)
    To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain (2X)

    I hear the chains falling, I hear the chains falling

    Had It Not Been The Lord

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

    Had it not been the Lord who is 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

    Had it not been the Lord who is on our side, Had it not been the Lord who is on our side
    The water would have engulfed us, We would have surely died
    Had it not been the Lord who is on our side

  5. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 7/26

    Each Day

    Each day…I grow a little nearer, Each day…He seems a little dearer

    Each day…I grow a little nearer to the Lord

    Each day…my path gets brighter, Each day…my load gets lighter

    Each day…I grow a little nearer to the Lord

    While on this pilgrim’s journey a servant I will be

    Oh each day (each day) I grow a little nearer to Thee

    My friends talk about me but that don’t bother me
    Because each day (Each day) I grow a little nearer to the Lord

    You know when trouble overtakes me, Right by my side He’ll be
    Yes, each day (each day) I grow a little nearer to Thee

    Yes, I know he’s water when I’m thirsty
    A shelter, Lord, for me, And each day (each day) I grow a little nearer to the Lord

     

    Waiting Here For You

    If faith can move the mountains, let the mountains move

    We come with expectation, waiting here for You, Waiting here for You

    You’re the Lord of all Creation, and still you know my heart

    The Author of salvation, You’ve loved me from the start

    Waiting here for You, with our hands lifted high in praise

    And it’s You, we adore, singing Alleluia

    You are everything You’ve promised, Your faithfulness is true

    We’re desperate for Your presence, All we need is You

     

    Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

    ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, just to take Him at His word.

    Just to rest upon His promise, just to know “Thus saith  the  Lord.”

    Jesus, Jesus,  how I trust Him!  How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!

    Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!  O for grace to trust  Him more!

    how sweet to trust in Jesus, just to trust His cleansing blood.

    Just in simple faith to plunge me, ‘neath the healing, cleansing flood!

    Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus, just from sin and self to cease,

    Just from Jesus simply taking, life and rest and joy and peace.

    I’m so glad I learned to trust Him, precious Jesus, Savior, Friend.

    And I know that He is with me, will be with me to the end.

     

    God is So Good

    God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He’s so good to me

    He answers prayer, (Hallelujah)…He’s so good to me!

    I praise His name, (Hallelujah)…He’s so good to me!

    The answer’s not to force a moral story, The answer’s not to bring back days of old

    The answer is the King in all His glory, Come and take your throne

    When times times are strange and righteousness seems complicated

    When lies and truth are said to be more integrated

    The Holy Ghost time after time has demonstrated, Jesus is alive

     

    You Reign Above It All

    The reign of darkness now has ended, In the kingdom of light, In the kingdom of light
    Forever under Your dominion, You’re the King of my life, You’re the King of my life

    You reign above it all, You reign above it all, Over the universe
    And over every heart, There is no higher name, Jesus You reign above it all

    On the cross the work was finished, God You poured out Your life, Just to give us new life
    Now from the lips of the forgiven, Hear an anthem arise, ‘Cause Jesus You’re alive

    Let all of heaven and the earth erupt in song, Sing hallelujah to the Everlasting One
    There is no higher name, Jesus You reign above it all, You reign above it all

    You sent the darkness running, Out of an empty grave
    Now seated alone in glory, Enthroned on the highest praise (4X)

     

    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 nights

    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
