Song of Joy

choir-303302_1280

Come clap your hands and sing a joyful song
For the Lord is King over all the earth
Let all nations bow before the throne
And all people have glory on their tongue

Song of Joy
Receive our words of praise
Song of Joy
Who called us from the grave
Song of Joy
The victory is won
Song of Joy
Death could not hold the Son

Sing for salvation with shouts of amen
Sing of great mercy again and again
For He has ascended with trumpet sound
Make a joyful noise in a psalm to Him

Seated supreme over heaven and earth
Reigning forever on His royal throne
Highly exalted let each one proclaim
Their own song of grace to describe His worth

Psalm 47

Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
sing praises with a psalm!
(Psalm 47:6-7)

Higher

Who can tell of all your deeds
Who can declare all your praise
Who can know all that you know
Who can love like you, O Lord

Your ways are higher than our ways
Holy, full of grace
Your wrath and mercy coexist
Perfect love in justice
You came to die so we might live
Paid it all, gave yourself
We praise your name, Most High
You are Higher

You comfort us in our distress
You never break your promises
You are more than we can receive
We’ll learn from you eternally

It’s undeniable
Your thoughts are beyond us all
Incomprehensible
Your greatness cheers our soul

Who can utter the mighty deeds of the LORDor declare all his praise?
Psalm 106:2

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:9

There is a Future

Verse 1
Wait, wait, don’t worry yourself
Be still and bring it to the Lord
For He will give you the grace you need
And the strength to endure

Chorus
There is a future, there is a plan
Written by a Sovereign hand
Drawn up before time began
And when you’re feeling down and everything’s bad
There’s a coming King and a promised land
A new heaven and earth beyond your dreams
Where no one’s sad and death has lost its sting
There is a future

Verse 2
Know, know, your steps have been secured
Salvation belongs to the Lord
For He holds the number of your days
And knows what each one’s for

Bridge
Delight yourself in the Lord
It’s only a little while more
Commit your way to the Lord
It’s only a little while more
And place your hope in the Lord
It’s only a little while more
Until heaven and earth are restored

Psalm 37

Send Your Praises Down

prayer-1269776_1920

Verse 1
Highly Exalted, oh, hallelujah!

Your Word gives visions that make us undone
With rainbows and lightning around your throne
Where heavenly hosts give praise to you alone

Chorus
Send your praises down

Move in mercy now
Send your Holy Thunder
Healing, grace, and wonder
Let knees fall to the ground
Send your praises down

Verse 2
Come from heaven, O Ancient of Days
Deliver us from the idols that we raise
Brush your blood on the door of our hearts
Enter in, take our sin, and never depart

Bridge
With cherubim and seraphim
Living creatures and angels all around
We’re joining them by falling down:
Saying, “Worthy is the Lamb!”

 

No One Greater

sunset-1728163_1920

Great are You, LORD
And greatly to be praised
You sit above the heavens
And You search all my ways

You tell my soul
You are my salvation
You reveal Your sacrifice
And how You crush satan

For there is no one greater
All-Powerful Creator
My Defender, Sustainer
There is no One like You
For You are my Savior
Your strength never waivers
And there is no one greater
No one greater than You

My enemies
They come to hurt and to blame
But You defend my soul
And You put them to shame

You’re my delight
My joy evermore
And my tongue can’t help but sing
Great are You, LORD!

Psalm 35 with a few lines from Psalm 48.

Magnify

people-2590551_1920

We come to bless the God of Glory
You are the One without years
We tell the world Your gospel story
How You freed us from our fears

For You took us from sin and darkness
And led us into Your light
You gave us grace and bought forgiveness
By Your resurrection might

Yes, You are near the brokenhearted
You have a plan and will see it through
Yes, You are for us and won’t forsake us
And all Your promises are true
So we magnify You
Yes, we magnify You
May all that we do, magnify…
Magnify You

Oh, hear the sound of our humble tongues
Crying out to You once more
Let Your heart receive what’s being sung
As we rejoice in Your Word

If you weren’t being magnified
Surely the rocks would cry
If you weren’t being magnified
Surely the rocks would cry
If you weren’t being magnified
Surely the rocks would cry
We’ve come to magnify
