This Is Love

Verse 1
Light has broken the reign of sin
For the blood of Jesus can made us clean
You in darkness, walk His way
See the shadows pass away

Verse 2
For Truth has come he was crucified
The Word of life lifted up to die
Come and see, the tomb is bare!
Christ has risen - we declare

Chorus
This is love God has sent His Son
So that we might live through Him
Who gave His life as a sacrifice
An atonement for our sin
This is love

Prince of Peace

Verse 1
Do you feel
The burden of your shame?
That every thought and deed
Still by sin is stained
Do you know
Your debt is fully paid?
On Jesus’ shoulders laid
Bear that weight no more

Pre- Chorus
So no longer walk in darkness
The light has dawned
Unto us a Son is given
A child is born

Chorus
Come behold Him now
Jesus King of Kings
He has conquered death
And reconciled all things
Through his life laid down
Every war will cease
Every knee will bow
For the Prince of Peace
Every knee will bow
For the Prince of Peace

Verse 2
Do you see
With suff’ring’s faded hue
Does sorrow whisper through
Every night and day?
Lift your cry
The one who share shares your pain
Is coming soon again
Rest your hope in Him

You Are The Way

Verse 1
For those in dark
A light has dawned
And all the angels sing
For the promised King is born
The Word of God
In flesh has come
Full of grace and truth
From the Father’s side above

Pre-Chorus
For God so loved the world
That He gave His Only Son

Chorus
You are the way
You are the truth
And everlasting life is found in You
You are the first
You are the last
So I am holding fast to you, Jesus

Verse 2
The bread of life
From heav’n come down
All who feast on You
Will begin to live again
And in the Vine
May we remain
Bearing love and peace
Never ceasing to proclaim

Bridge
You paid our price
You paved our way
You rose to life
On that glorious day

Once For All

Verse 1
Once lost in darkness but now in light
Once torn apart but now reconciled
Once unforgiven and all alone
Now chosen people and called His own

Pre-Chorus
Once far away from our Father's love
But now welcomed near by our Saviour's blood

Chorus
As once for all You died to sin
The righteous for our fall
You rose to life that we might live
Forgiven once and for all
Forgiven once and for all

Verse 2
Once we opposed every grace of God
Once stood condemned in our futile fight
But now we are clothed in the love of Christ
Humbled and holy in God's sight

Bridge
All glory, honour, power and praise
To the One who saves
To the One who saves

Speak O Lord

Verse 1
You spoke and atoms span  
You breathed and life began
The heavens sang for all that You had made
Create in us anew
Restore our hearts to You
That in our lives Your glory is displayed

Pre-Chorus
Where else can we go
For You alone have the words of life

Chorus
So speak O Lord for we long to hear
Joy for heavy hearts, hope to persevere
Hide within every word You say
Turn our faltering feet
So we never stray from You

Verse 2
Guide our gaze away
From fortune sure to fade
And fix it to your Word that we may see
Holy Spirit breathe
To strengthen and to teach
That we might be equipped for every deed

O Praise The Son

 Verse 1
Who can stand before such a holy God?
In the threadbare clothes of our own design
All our finest deeds naught but filthy rags
Every striving stained by sin
O praise the Son who has borne our shame
Wore a purple robe and a twisted crown
In the whitest linen now we're found
Covered in His righteousness

Verse 2
From our Father's riches we ran away
Fallen hearts enthralled by the world’s allure
Held to ransom by every vain desire
With our souls enslaved to sin
O praise the Son, precious Lamb of God
Who receives us home with his outstretched arms
Now from sin set free, to Him redeemed
Sons and daughters bought by blood

Verse 3
Though our feeble frames fail and waste away
Know that day by day we are being renewed
Every grief and pain light and momentary
With eternity in view
Oh praise the Son who has overcome
The despair of death no longer reigns
Come and lift your gaze to see that day
When He makes all things anew

More Than Conquerors

Verse 1
Almighty God, did not withhold his Son
For sinners he gave him up
Sacrificed once for all
So will not He graciously give all things
Mercies and sufferings for those he loves

PreChorus
If our God is for us
Who then can stand against
If our God is for us
Who then can stand against

Chorus
For in all these things
We are more than conquerers
Through the love of Christ
Raised from death to life
Yes, of this I'm sure
None can separate us now
From the love of God
That is ours in Jesus Christ our Lord

Verse 2
Who can bring charges against God's child?
Who can condemn us now
Those he has justified
Christ who died, in victory raised to life
Intercedes for us now at God's right side

Bridge
Neither ocean's depths
Nor mountain's heights
Can separate us now
Neither demon's lies nor angels lights
Can separate us now
Neither pasts regrets nor futures yet
Can separate us now
Neither life's array nor deaths decay
Can separate us now

I Will Boast In Christ Alone

Verse 1
You stepped into this mess
You took on flesh to dwell with us
Your glory set aside
To serve Your Father’s will
Obedient to death
You hung upon a sinners tree
The innocent condemned
The ransom paid to set us free

Chorus
So I will boast in Christ alone
Give all I am for His acclaim
Count my riches all as loss
That I might magnify His name
Every claim and crown
Father tear them down
That I might boast in Christ

Verse 2
How could I boast in strength
My flesh is weak, my courage fails
My finest deeds still bear
The scars of all my sin
So I will trust in Christ
His life laid down, the lost to save
I will not hope in vain
For He has risen from the grave

Bridge
Let the wise not boast in wisdom
Let the strong not boast in strength
Let the rich not boast in riches
But boast in Christ instead

Born Again

Verse 1
Rejoice Rejoice
Through trials and pains
Take hope traveling through
The darkest of days
Of greater worth than purest gold
Your faith - tested and proved
Will be for His praise

Chorus
We’re born again
Into a living hope
Jesus You rose again out of the grave
We’re born again
Holy and radiant
Jesus the blood you shed
Is mighty to save
Mighty to save

Verse 2
In Heaven’s our inheritance
New life - never to spoil never to fade
Protected by God's mighty power
Until all is revealed when you come again

Bridge
Though now our eyes can’t see
We love you Saviour King
Our lips cannot express this glorious joy
And when at last revealed
In glory You will bring salvation
Bring salvation

See the man
Formed by the Father’s hand
Dust turned to flesh
Filled with his breath
In the image of God
Loved and blessed
Given the very best
Destined to rule,
Fill and subdue all of the earth
But death entered the day
He ate from the tree
Condemned all of mankind
To follow his lead
But one day a man will come
And undo what he had done
One day a Saviour will return

See the man
Leaving his father’s land
Sent by the Lord
Journeys towards
A promised place
By his faith
Would come a nation great
In numbers surpassed
All of the stars
Shining in space
His name would be renowned
From the east to the west
And all people on earth
Through him would be blessed
And one day a man will come
To finish what had begun
One day a Saviour would return

See the man
Come from his Father’s side
His word become flesh
And all his fullness
Dwelling in him
Godʼs delight
Speaking the words of life
The Kingdomʼs revealed
The broken are healed
The blind given sight
And for all historyʼs sin
The righteous is slain
By his blood, death is defeated
Heʼs risen again
And soon he will come again
And then forever reign
One day our Saviour will return

You loved me
When You spun the stars into motion
And You loved me
When You parted land and sea
Before night and day
Before time and space
You had chosen me
Set aside a place in heaven
That bears my name

You loved me
When my heart was turned against You
And You loved me
Even though my eyes were blind
You called me Your child
Led me by the hand
Made Yourself be known
Let me understand forgiveness
That comes from You

Oh Lord You are worthy of all praise
Oh Lord oh Lord

You love me
Through Your Son I am forgiven
And You love me
By His death You purchased me
My Lord Jesus Christ
You were crucified
But returned alive
To the Father’s side forever

No other name but Jesus, Jesus

No other name but Jesus, Jesus

There is no victory
But Jesus crucified
No other cure for sin
But that our Saviour died
No other hope we have
But that he rose again

No other throne endures
No other song remains
But ‘Worthy is the Lamb
Who was for sinners slain’
When every knee shall bow
