WHEN YOU BOW AT JESUS' FEET

Jim Brady

We’ve all done things that we’re not proud of
Made mistakes along the way
Walked the path of least resistance
Traveled roads that led to shame
But there’s no need to be held captive
Beneath the weight that blame can bring
Just pour your heart out to the Savior
He alone can break the chains

There is freedom and forgiveness
There is peace and sweet relief
Grace and mercy now are waiting
When you bow at Jesus’ feet

So bring your cares and every burden
Lay them down and walk away
Say “Goodbye” to all that haunts you
Leave your guilt to yesterday
Hope will dawn with each tomorrow
The grip of fear will lose its hold
Defined no longer by your failures
You’ll find strength in letting go

There is freedom and forgiveness
There is peace and sweet relief
Grace and mercy now are waiting
When you bow at Jesus’ feet

He's In Control

Justin Rivers, Mike Kofahl and John Rowsey

If you’ve started a journey
Down a long dusty road
If your heart's been searchin’
For a place to call home
If sin and affliction
Has led you to grieve
My friend, be encouraged
By the words that I speak

Be not you weary
When on this journey
For you will reap
If you faint not
If dark clouds should rise
And thunder roll
Look to the Master
For He’s in control

If heartache and trouble
Is all you’ve known
Peace and contentment
Has left you alone
But there’s One Who’s waiting
With His arms open wide
And He gently whispers
Heed these words of Mine

Be not you weary
When on this journey
For you will reap
If you faint not
If dark clouds should rise
And thunder roll
Look to the Master
For He’s in control

AMAZING GRACE (MY CHAINS ARE GONE)

John Newton, Chris Tomlin, & Louie Giglio

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see

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

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine

I SING THE MIGHTY POWER OF GOD

Isaac Watts

I sing the mighty power of God,
That made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command,
And all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord,
Who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word,
And then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed,
Where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze upon the sky.

There’s not a plant or flower below,
But makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
By order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee
Is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be,
Thou, God art present there.

AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE

John Waller

I'm done
Building my own kingdom
No more
Seeking worthless idols
Like sheep we have all gone astray
We must choose this day
Whom we will serve

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
Idols raised, tear them down
Cause we will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
To one king we bow down
As for me and my house
We will only serve the Lord

I'm done
With powerless religion
No more
Living in deception
Like sheep we have all gone astray
We must choose this day
Whom we will serve

As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
Idols raised, tear them down
Cause we will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
To one king we bow down
As for me and my house
We will only serve the Lord

We will cross over Jordan
We will claim what you promised
We will not give our hearts to another
Will not give our hearts to another
We belong to the Lord
We will not give our hearts to another
Will not give our hearts to another
We will only serve the Lord

ALONG CAME JESUS

Andrae Crouch

Lonely, downhearted, looking for a place to go
Searchin’ here and there and everywhere
Where to go I did not know
Without a song to sing I didn’t have anything
No, I was livin’ on lonely street
Then along came Jesus and He stopped
And rescued me.

You know I was lonely, downhearted
Looking for a place to go
Searchin’ here and there and everywhere
Where to go I did not know
Without a song to sing I didn’t have anything
I was livin’ on lonely street
Then along came Jesus and He stopped
And rescued me

You know I’m happy now
Ever since Jesus came into my heart
Oh, Lord, I’m happy now
Ever since You made my sins depart
No more lonely days and lonely nights
Whoa, glory hallelujah!
All because Jesus stopped by and rescued me

You know I’m happy now
Happy now, Happy now
Ever since Jesus came into my life
And made a great change
I’m happy now, happy now, happy now
Ever since Jesus came into my life.

Lonely, downhearted
Looking for a place to go
Searchin’ here and there and everywhere
Without a song to sing I didn’t have anything
No I was livin’ on lonely street
Then along came Jesus and He stopped
And rescued me
He rescued me.

OH, WHAT A FRIEND

Chris Allman

When your heart is breaking,
His heart is breaking in two.
When you've gone your last mile,
There's no where that you can run to;
Oh, just run to the Father,
With opened arms, He'll welcome you
He's a friend to rely on,
He'll do what no other can do.

Oh, what a friend,
This man called Jesus,
A broken heart mends
At the sound of His lovely name;
I'll ne'er understand
Why a Savior would die for a man,
When your road's at its end,
His blessings begin,
Oh, what a friend.

When you're needing comfort,
He is a comfort to know,
He makes the load lighter,
He's peace to a lost troubled soul
Oh, He's there when you need Him
Just call and He'll hear your prayer,
You won't have to look far,
Just open your heart, Jesus cares.

Oh, what a friend,
This man called Jesus,
A broken heart mends
At the sound of His lovely name;
I'll ne'er understand
Why a Savior would die for a man,
When your road's at its end,
His blessings begin,
Oh, what a friend.

IF WE ARE THE BODY

It's crowded in worship today
As she slips in
Trying to fade into the faces
The girls' teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know

But if we are the Body
Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing
Why aren't His words teaching
And if we are the Body
Why aren't His feet going
Why is His love not showing them there is a way
There is a way

A traveler is far away from home
He sheds his coat
And quietly sinks into the back row
The weight of their judgmental glances tells him that his chances
Are better out on the road

But if we are the Body
Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing
Why aren't His words teaching
And if we are the Body
Why aren't His feet going
Why is His love not showing them there is a way

Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the Body of Christ

If we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing
Why aren't His words teaching
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going
Why is His love not showing them there is a way

Jesus is the way

THE LOVE OF GOD

Vep Ellis

The love of God has been extended
To a fallen race,
Through Christ, the Savior of all men,
There's hope in saving grace

The Love of God is greater far
Than gold or silver ever could afford,
It reaches past the highest star
And covers all the world!
It's power is eternal..eternal,
It's glory is supernal..supernal!
When all this earth shall pass away,
There'll always be the Love of God!

It goes beneath the deepest stain
That sin could ever leave,
Redeeming souls to live again,
Who will on Christ believe .. will believe!

Oh, the love of God is greater far
than gold or silver, ever could afford,
It reaches past the highest star
And covers all the world!
His power is eternal...eternal!
His glory is supernal...supernal!
When all this earth shall pass away,
There'll always be, the Love Of God!...precious love of God!

OVERCOME

Seated above, enthroned in the Father's love
Destined to die, poured out for all mankind
God's only Son, perfect and spotless One
He never sinned, but suffered as if He did
All authority, every victory is Yours
All authority, every victory is Yours

Savior, worthy of honor and glory,
Worthy of all our praise,
You overcame Jesus,
Awesome in power forever,
Awesome and great is Your name,
You overcame

Power in hand speaking the Father's plan
You're sending us out, light in this broken land

All authority, every victory is Yours
Savior, worthy of honor and glory,
Worthy of all our praise,
You overcame Jesus,
Awesome in power forever,
Awesome and great is Your name,
You overcame

We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb
And the word of our testimony,
Everyone, overcome

Savior, worthy of honor and glory,
Worthy of all our praise,
You overcame Jesus,
Awesome in power forever,
Awesome and great is Your name,
You overcame

I REST MY CASE AT THE CROSS

Kyla Rowland

There's a covenant sweet, it was written for me,
It's a promise that I could be healed..
From All my sin and my shame,
Even heartache and pain,
It was signed and confirmed on a Hill.

So I rest my case at the Cross,
For now I have Someone to champion my cause,.
I've been justified, satisfied, oh, I have it all,
So I rest my case at the Cross.

Don't feel sorry for me when you see I'm in need,
There's a Judge who grants mercy and love.
All my burdens He lifts,
All my sin He forgives,
Every time is won through the blood.

So I rest my case at the Cross,
For now I have someone to champion my cause,
I've been justified, satisfied, oh, I have it all!
So I rest my case at the Cross.

In the Cross, in the Cross... be my glory ever,
This covenant is binding by His blood and His Word,
Every trial and trouble... my case will be heard,
I've been justified, satisfied, oh, I have it all,
I rest my case at the Cross.

I SING BECAUSE

Squire Parsons

I’ve been singing about my Lord for so many years
I’ve sung when I’ve been happy; I've sung when I’ve had tears
Some folks have even asked me if it’s all been just a show
But the reason that I’m singing--I want the world to know

I sing because there is an empty grave
I sing because there is a power to save
I sing because His grace is real to me
I sing because I know I’m not alone
I sing because someday I’m going home
Where I shall sing through all eternity

I’ve sung to those walking through a fiery trial
I’ve watched their saddened faces turn into happy smiles
I’ve bowed my head and whispered, "Lord, Please do the same for me."
And I’m glad that I can tell you He’s always given sweet victory

I sing because there is an empty grave
I sing because there is a power to save
I sing because His grace is real to me
I sing because I know I’m not alone
I sing because someday I’m going home
Where I shall sing through all eternity
