Lyrics:

1.Amazing Grace / My Chains Are Gone
(Traditional / Louie Giglio / Chris Tomlin)

 

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 reigns
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 reigns
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
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

2. Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus)
(Chris Rice)

 

Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die 

O, raise your head for love is passing by 


 

Come to Jesus 

Come to Jesus 

Come to Jesus and live! 



 

Now your burden’s lifted
And carried far away 

And precious blood has washed away the stain

 

So sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus 

Sing to Jesus and live! 



 

And like a newborn baby 

Don’t be afraid to crawl 

And remember when you walk sometimes we fall

 

So fall on Jesus 

Fall on Jesus 

Fall on Jesus and live! 



 

Sometimes the way is lonely 

And steep and filled with pain 

So if your sky is dark and pours the rain

 

Then
cry to Jesus 

Cry to Jesus 

Cry to Jesus and live! 



 

O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night 

And when you can’t contain your joy inside

 

Then dance for Jesus 

Dance for Jesus 

Dance for Jesus and live! 


 

And with your final heartbeat 

Kiss the world goodbye 

Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory’s side

 

And fly to Jesus 

Fly to Jesus 

Fly to Jesus and live!

3. Abide With Me / Abide With Me, ‘Tis Eventide
(Henry F. Lyte/William H. Monk/Lowrie M. Hofford/Harrison Millard)

 

Abide with me fast falls the eventide

The darkness deepens, Lord with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me

 

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day
Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away
Change and decay in all around I see
O Thou who changest not, abide with me

 

Abide with me; ’tis eventide,
And lone will be the night
If I cannot commune with thee
Nor find in thee my light.
The darkness of the world, I fear,
Would in my home abide.

 

O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, ’tis eventide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, ’tis eventide.

4. Behold the Wounds
(David Naylor/John Pearson)

 

Behold the wounds in Jesus’ hands
The Marks upon His side.
Then ponder who He meant to save
When on the cross He died.

 

We cannot see the love of God
Which saves us from the fall,
Yet know that Christ from wood and nails
Built mansions for us all.

 

Behold the out-stretched hands of Christ
Our God, who came to save,
Whose love and grace redeems our souls
And lifts us from the grave.

 

Though bruised and battered as we stray
His loving hands caress,
He washes and annoints with oil
Then in His arms we rest.

 

Behold the wounds in Jesus’ hands,
Look to your Lord and live
He yearns to bless you with His love
And all your sins forgive.

 

Oh empty is the heart of man
When it is filled with sin.
Come open wide your broken heart
And let your Savior in!

 

Behold His wounded hands and feet!
Come touch and see and feel
The wounds and marks that you may know
His love for you is real.

 

Then as you fall to worship Him
And wash His feet in tears,
Your Savior takes you in His arms
And quiets all your fears.

 

Your Savior takes you in His arms
And quiets all your fears

5. Were You There
(African American Spiritual)

 

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble.

 

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble.

 

Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?

6. Homeward Bound
(Marta Keen Thompson)

 

In the quiet misty morning
When the moon has gone to bed

When the sparrows stop their singing

And the sky is clear and red

 

When the summer’s ceased its gleaming

When the corn is past its prime

When adventure’s lost its meaning

I’ll be homeward bound in time

 

Bind me not to the pasture

Chain me not to the plow

Set me free to find my calling
And I’ll return to you somehow

 

If you find it’s me you’re missing
If you’re hoping I’ll return

To your thoughts I’ll soon be listening

In the road I’ll stop and turn

 

Then the wind will set me racing

As my journey nears its end

And the path I’ll be retracing

When I’m homeward bound again

 

Bind me not to the pasture

Chain me not to the plow

Set me free to find my calling
And I’ll return to you somehow

 

In the quiet misty morning
When the moon has gone to bed

When the sparrows stop their singing

And the sky is clear and red

7. How Great Thou Art
(Stuart K. Hine/Sweedish Folk Melody)

 

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy Hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed; 

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

 

Then sings my soul,
My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul,
My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art! 


 

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation,
And take me home what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim “My God, how great Thou art!” 


 

Then sings my soul,
My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul,
My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

8. Part the Waters, Lord / I Need Thee Every Hour
(Charles F. Brown/Annie S. Hawkes/Robert Lowry)

 

When I think I’m going under
Part the waters, Lord
When I feel the waves around me
Calm the sea
When I cry for help
Oh, hear me, Lord
And hold our Your hand
Touch my life
Still the raging storm in me

 

I need thee every hour
Most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like
Thine can peace afford.

 

I need thee every hour
Stay thou nearby
Temptations lose their power
When thou art nigh
I need Thee, O I need thee
Every hour I need thee
O bless me now, my Savior,
I come to thee

 

I need thee every hour
In joy or pain
Come quickly and abide
Or life is vain
I need Thee, O I need thee
Every hour I need thee
O bless me now, my Savior,
I come to thee

9. In Humility, Our Savior
(Mabel Jones Gabbott/Rowland H. Prichard)

 

In humility, our Savior,
Grant thy Spirit here, we pray,
As we bless the bread and water
In thy name this holy day.

 

Let me not forget, O Savior,
Thou didst bleed and die for me
When thy heart was stilled and broken
On the cross at Calvary.

 

Fill our hearts with sweet forgiving;
Teach us tolerance and love.
Let our prayers find access to thee
In thy holy courts above.

 

Then, when we have proven worthy
Of thy sacrifice divine,
Lord, let us regain they presence;
Let thy glory round us shine

10. Fairest Lord Jesus (Beautiful Savior)
(Selesian Folk Song/Text anonymous)

 

Fair is the sunshine,

Fairer the moonlight,

And all the stars in heaven above.
Jesus shines brighter,

Jesus shines purer,

He brings to all the world His light

 

Fair are the meadows,

Fairer are the woodlands,

Robed in flowers of blooming spring;

Jesus is fairer,

Jesus is purer;

He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.
Beautiful Savior,


 

Lord of the nations,

Son of God and Son of Man!

Thee will I honor,

Praise, and give glory;

Give praise and glory evermore

11. It Is Well With My Soul
(Horatio Spafford/Philip P. Bliss)

 

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

 

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

 

But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait
The sky, not the grave, is our goal
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!

Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

 

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

 

And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

 

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

12. Softly and Tenderly
(Will L. Thompson)

 

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
See, on the portals he’s waiting and watching,
Watching for you and for me.

 

Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not his mercies,
Mercies for you and for me?
Come home, come home;
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!

 

O for the wonderful love he has promised,
Promised for you and for me!
Though we have sinned, he has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.

 

Come home, come home;
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!
