Because of Your Love

Verse
As we come into Your presence
We remember ev’ry blessing
That You’ve poured out so freely from above
Lifting gratitude and praises
For compassion so amazing
Lord we’ve come to give You thanks
For all You’ve done

Chorus
Because of Your love we’re forgiven
Because of Your love our hearts are clean
We lift You up with songs of freedom
Forever we’re changed because of Your love

Glorious Day

Verse 1
One day when heaven was filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin
Dwelt among men my example is He
The Word became flesh
And the light shined among us
His glory revealed

Chorus
Living He loved me dying He saved me
Buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming
O glorious day (glorious day)

Verse 2
One day they led Him up Calv’ry’s mountain
One day they nailed Him to die on a tree
Suffering anguish despised and rejected
Bearing our sins my Redeemer is He
The hand that healed nations
Stretched out on a tree
And took the nails for me

Verse 3
One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose over death He had conquered
Now is ascended my Lord evermore
Death could not hold Him
The grave could not keep Him
From rising again

Bridge
One day the trumpet will sound for His coming
One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day my beloved one bringing
My Savior Jesus is mine

Ending
O glorious day glorious day
O glorious day

Psalm 5
Give ear to my words, O Lord;
    consider my groaning.
2 Give attention to the sound of my cry,
    my King and my God,
    for to you do I pray.
3 O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
    in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you[a]and watch.
4 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
    evil may not dwell with you.
5 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes;
    you hate all evildoers.
6 You destroy those who speak lies;
    the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
    will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
    in the fear of you.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies;
    make your way straight before me.
9 For there is no truth in their mouth;
    their inmost self is destruction;
their throat is an open grave;
    they flatter with their tongue.
10 Make them bear their guilt, O God;
    let them fall by their own counsels;
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
    for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
    let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
    that those who love your name may exult in you.
12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord;
    you cover him with favor as with a shield.

My Hope is in the Lord

Verse 1
My hope is in the Lord
Who gave Himself for me
And paid the price
Of all my sin at Calvary
  
Chorus
For me He died
For me He lives
And everlasting life
And light He freely gives
  
Verse 2
No merit of my own
His anger to suppress
My only hope is found
In Jesus’ righteousness
  
Verse 3
And now for me He stands
Before the Father’s throne
He shows His wounded hands
And names me as His own
  
Verse 4
His grace has planned it all
‘Tis mine but to believe
And recognize His work of love
And Christ receive

The Lord is My Salvation

Verse 1
The grace of God has reached for me
And pulled me from the raging sea
And I am safe on this solid ground
The Lord is my salvation

Verse 2
I will not fear when darkness falls
His strength will help me scale these walls
I’ll see the dawn of the rising sun
The Lord is my salvation

Chorus
Who is like the Lord our God
Strong to save faithful in love
My debt is paid and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation

Verse 3
My hope is hidden in the Lord
He flow’rs each promise of His Word
When winter fades I know spring will come
The Lord is my salvation

Verse 4
In times of waiting times of need
When I know loss when I am weak
I know His grace will renew these days
The Lord is my salvation

Verse 5
And when I reach the final day
He will not leave me in the grave
But I will rise He will call me home
The Lord is my salvation

Bridge
Glory be to God the Father
Glory be to God the Son
Glory be to God the Spirit
The Lord is our salvation

Ending
The Lord is our salvation
The Lord is our salvation
