It is the grateful song of the saints
They sing to their God in praise
A spiritual melody in their hearts
As their thanks to Him they raise
It is reliance upon their Redeemer
His finished work upon the Cross
It is for them He spilled His blood
Purchased them at so great a cost
It is the freedom they have in Him
A higher calling and excellent way
To live out the Truth of the gospel
Here and now and every single day
Isaiah 12:2 (NASB)
“Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.”
Colossians 3:16 (NASB)
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Anything of value I’ve done
Is only by Your Hand of grace
Forever You my pardon won
Which nothing can ever erase
Strength in self I don’t possess
But all I am and have is in You
My Rock, My Mighty Fortress
Without You, no good do I do
All that matters is You, not me
If not for You, I’d certainly fall
I pray to serve You obediently
My Jesus, My Lord, All in All
Romans 5:17 (NASB)
For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
John 1:16 (NASB)
For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace
Wherever our treasure is, then there our hearts also will be
Wordliness brings bondage; our liberty in Christ sets us free
Compromise is the fool’s path; Truth is the way of the wise
Sin confounds its victims; God’s Word opens spiritual eyes
Pride is the height of arrogance; humility is a lesson learned
Great is His grace; His salvation, a gift that no one can earn
He is our Sanctuary, though trials and troubles upon us come
He is Jesus, our Forever Love when our time on earth is done
Hebrews 13:5-6 (NASB)
5 for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”
6 so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?”
From Age to Age He is; Beginning and End
Majestic, Mighty King; Redeemer and Friend
All God’s Saints dwell in that Heavenly place
Surrounded by His beauty; awed by His grace
Swelling choruses of praise rise to His Throne
None Other Is Worthy; There Is Only He Alone
The Ancient of Days, Name Above All Names
Everlasting to Everlasting, unendingly He reigns
His Sons and Daughters; His Children eternally
Serve He who was, is, and forevermore shall be
Exodus 15:11 (NASB)
“Who is like You among the gods, O LORD? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, Awesome in praises, working wonders?
Psalms 90:2 (NASB)
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Who are we that God notices us?
Creator of All; Transcendent King
Why did He send His Son to die?
On the Cross, a Perfect Offering
Why does He hear our prayers?
In Jesus, we have righteousness
How can we receive forgiveness?
When our sins to Him we confess
Why were we put upon this earth?
For His glory, and because He lives
What motivates us to live for Him?
Because He is ours; and we are His
Ephesians 2:4-7 (NASB)
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
As the sun rises, a brand new day dawns
We are held securely in the Master’s Hands
We cannot ever be separated from Him
We are kept safely in His sovereign plans
Darkness and light are both alike to Him
Nothing can conceal itself from His sight
Christ has clothed us in His righteousness
We are more than overcomers in His might
I John 5:4 (NASB)
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
Let us surrender ourselves unto Him
Everlasting God Who Reigns on High
He fashioned the stars and planets
Architect of heaven, earth, and sky
All things exist by His Mighty Hand
Ancient of Days, before time began
Master Artist; Magnificent Wonders
Divine Providence; Sovereign Plan
Pure and Holy; A Consuming Fire
His Ways and Thoughts inscrutable
Deigned to reveal Himself to man
King of Kings, eternal, immutable
Nehemiah 9:6 (NASB)
You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.
As I praise and worship You
In mind, heart, and spirit
You put a smile on my face
And fill me with a quiet, internal, peaceful stillness
You lift the veil from my eyes
You are my delight
My desires become Yours
To serve you, and to be faithful
In willing and joyful obedience
As I bask in your extravagant and unconditional love,
Safely tucked away in the shadow of Your wings,
Resting in Your arms eternally
Psalms 91:1 (NASB)
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
God knows what’s in my heart and mind
It’s Him in prayer daily I’ll seek and find
From the minute I wake, until day’s end
He’s gracious to me; My Faithful Friend
Those times when fear and faith collide
He’s my Deliverer, and in Him I’ll abide
If I rely on myself, I’ll stumble and fall
If I’m trusting in Him, He’ll handle it all
He’ll never leave me; of this I’m aware
I’m kept in His loving and tender care
My fears melt away, for He’s all I need
In Him, I’ve true peace and rest indeed
Psalm 18:2 (NASB) The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB) 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
For once and for always; forever we have been saved
So extraordinary a price for us that Jesus Christ paid
He made Himself a guilt offering for us at the Cross
Perfect, Holy Lamb slain; He willingly paid the cost
While once we were dead in sin, He raised us to life
Brought us out of darkness into His Everlasting Light
Broken, brittle hearts; He fashioned completely new
Blind, dark minds; He opened to the purity of Truth
Once we were searching; we found our hope in Him
Once we were empty; now His Spirit resides within
Hebrews 7:25 (NASB)
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
John 10:27-29 (NASB)
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
Watching and waiting; poised and ready
Many storms arise; God holds us steady
Mortal ills; confusion and chaos abound
He is our Delight; in Him our joy is found
Truth anchors us; a beaming beacon of light
Our hope for the day; our peace in the night
When we praise Him, our faith is expressed
Fears are quieted as the heart enters His rest
In study of His Word, the Spirit gives insight
Wisdom for living and for doing what is right
Fellowship is ours with the Father and His Son
Foretaste of glory; glimpse of eternity to come
1 John 1:1-4 (NASB)
1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life—
2 and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—
3 what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.
4 These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.
