    Lead Me, Lord

    Buy track Lyrics

    1. Blessed are the poor in spirit, longing for their Lord,
    for God’s coming kingdom shall be theirs.
    Blessed are the sorrowing, for they shall be consoled,
    and the meek shall come to rule the world.

    Refrain
    Lead me, Lord, lead me, Lord,
    by the light of truth
    to seek and to find the narrow way.
    Be my way; be my truth;
    be my life, my Lord,
    and lead me, Lord, today.

    2. Blessed are the merciful, for mercy shall be theirs,
    and the pure in heart shall see their God.
    Blest are they whose hunger only holiness can fill,
    for I say they shall be satisfied.

    3. Blest are they who through their lifetimes
    sow the seeds of peace;
    all will call them children of the Lord.
    Blest are you, though persecuted in your holy life,
    for in heaven, great is your reward.

    Lead Me, Lord

    Christ is Made the Sure Foundation

    Buy track Lyrics

    1. Christ is made the sure foundation,
    Christ the head and cornerstone;
    chosen of the Lord and precious,
    binding all the church in one;
    holy Zion's help forever,
    and her confidence alone.

    2. To this temple, where we call thee,
    come, O Lord of Hosts, today!
    With thy faithful loving-kindness
    hear thy people as they pray,
    and thy fullest benediction
    shed within its walls alway.

    3. Here vouchsafe to all thy servants
    what they ask of thee to gain;
    what they gain from thee forever
    with the blessed to retain,
    and hereafter in thy glory
    evermore with thee to reign.

    4. Laud and honor to the Father,
    laud and honor to the Son,
    laud and honor to the Spirit,
    ever three and ever one;
    one in might and one in glory,
    while unending ages run.

    Christ is Made the Sure Foundation

    Draw Near and Take the Body of the Lord

    Buy track Lyrics

    Draw near and take the body of the Lord,
    And drink the holy blood for you out outpoured;
    Offered was he for greatest and for least,
    Himself the victim and himself the priest.

    He who his saints in this world rules and shields,
    To all believers life eternal yields;
    With heavenly bread he makes the hungry whole,
    Gives living waters to the thirsting soul.

    Come forward then with faithful hearts sincere,
    And take the pledges of salvation here.
    O Lord, our hearts with grateful thanks endow
    As in this feast of love you bless us now.

    Draw Near and Take the Body of the Lord

    Here I Am (Booth)

    Buy track Lyrics

    Refrain
    Here I am, standing right
    beside you.
    Here I am; do not be afraid.
    Here I am, waiting like a lover.
    I am here; here I am.

    1. Do not fear when the tempter
    calls you.
    Do not fear even though you fall.
    Do not fear, I have conquered evil.
    Do not fear, never be afraid.

    2. I am here in the face of ev'ry child.
    I am here in ev'ry warm embrace.
    I am here with tenderness
    and mercy.
    Here I am; I am here.

    3. I am here in the midst of ev'ry trial.
    I am here in the face of despair.
    I am here when pardoning
    your brother.
    Here I am, I am here.

    Here I Am (Booth)

    Holy Is His Name (Talbot)

    Buy track Lyrics

    My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
    And my spirit exalts in God my savior
    For he has looked with mercy on my lowliness
    And my name will be forever exalted.
    For the mighty God has done great things for me
    An his mercy will reach from age to age

    And holy, holy, holy is His name.

    He has mercy in every generation
    He has revealed His power and His glory
    He has cast down the mighty in their arrogance
    And has lifted up the meek and the lowly
    He has come to help His servant Israel
    He remembered His promise to our fathers

    And holy, holy, holy is His name.
    And holy, holy, holy is His name.

    Holy Is His Name (Talbot)

    How Beautiful (Paris)

    Buy track Lyrics

    How beautiful the hands that served
    The wine and the bread and the sons of the earth
    How beautiful the feet that walked
    The long dusty roads and the hill to the cross

    How beautiful, how beautiful
    How beautiful is the body of Christ

    How beautiful the heart that bled
    That took all my sin and bore it instead
    How beautiful the tender eyes
    That chose to forgive and never despise

    How beautiful, how beautiful
    How beautiful is the body of Christ

    And as He laid down His life
    We offer this sacrifice
    That we will live just as he died
    Willing to pay the price
    Willing to pay the price

    How beautiful the radiant bride
    Who waits for her groom with His light in her eyes
    How beautiful when humble hearts give
    The fruit of pure lives so that others may live

    How beautiful, how beautiful
    How beautiful is the body of Christ

    How beautiful the feet that bring
    The sound of good news and the love of the King
    How beautiful the hands that serve
    The wine and the bread and the sons of the earth

    How beautiful, how beautiful
    How beautiful is the body of Christ

    Refrain
    Rain down, rain down,
    rain down your love on your people.
    Rain down, rain down,
    rain down your love, God of life.

    1. Faithful and true is the word of our God.

    full of God’s love is the earth.

    live in the kindness and joy of God’s wing.
    God will protect us from darkness and death;

    you are the water of life that we thirst.
    Grant that your love and your peace touch our hearts,
    all of our hope lies in you.

    The God of Abraham Praise

    Buy track Lyrics

    The God of Abraham praise, who reigns enthroned above;
    Ancient of everlasting days, and God of Love;
    Jehovah, great I AM! by earth and Heav’n confessed;
    I bow and bless the sacred Name forever blessed.

    The God of Abraham praise, at Whose supreme command
    From earth I rise—and seek the joys at His right hand;
    I all on earth forsake, its wisdom, fame, and power;
    And Him my only Portion make, my Shield and Tower.

    The God of Abraham praise, whose all sufficient grace
    Shall guide me all my happy days, in all my ways.
    He calls a worm His friend, He calls Himself my God!
    And He shall save me to the end, thro’ Jesus’ blood.

    He by Himself has sworn; I on His oath depend,
    I shall, on eagle wings upborne, to Heav’n ascend.
    I shall behold His face; I shall His power adore,
    And sing the wonders of His grace forevermore.

    The God Whom Earth and Sea and Sky

    Buy track Lyrics

    The God whom earth and sea and sky
    adore and laud and magnify,
    whose might they own, whose praise they swell,
    in Mary's womb vouchsafed to dwell.

    The Lord whom sun and moon obey,
    whom all things serve from day to day,
    was by the Holy Ghost conceived
    of her who through his grace believed.

    How blessed that Mother, in whose shrine
    the world's Creator, Lord divine,
    whose hand contains the earth and sky,
    once deigned, as in his ark, to lie.

    Blessed in the message Gabriel brought,
    blessed by the work the Spirit wrought;
    from whom the great Desire of earth
    took human flesh and human birth.

    O Lord, the Virgin-born, to thee
    eternal praise and glory be,
    whom with the Father we adore
    and Holy Ghost for evermore.

    The God Whom Earth and Sea and Sky

    Alone we find salvation.

    In endless jubilation.
