Track Name: Come Thou Fount
Come, thou fount of every blessing;
tune my heart to sing thy grace.
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I'm come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God.
He, to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor
daily I'm constrained to be.
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
prone to leave the God I love.
Here's my heart, O take and seal it;
seal it for thy courts above!

Robert Robinson, 1757
Track Name: O Sing to the Lord a New Song (Psalm 96)
O Sing to the LORD a new song;
O Sing to the LORD, all the earth.
O Sing to the LORD, and bless His name;
O Sing to the LORD a new song!

For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised.
He is to be feared above all gods,
for they are only idols, but He has made the heavens.

Ascribe to the LORD, all people,
Ascribe Him glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD what is due His name;
O Sing to the LORD a new song!

Let heavens be glad and let all the earth rejoice!
In faithfulness He comes to judge the earth,
in righteousness and truth, He brings justice to the nations!

Psalm 96
adapt. Harrison Hollingsworth, 2014
Track Name: Oceans
You call me out upon the waters,
the great unknown where feet may fail,
and there I find you in the mystery.
In oceans deep my faith will stand.

And I will call upon your name
and keep my eyes above the waves.
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in your embrace
for I am yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters;
your sovereign hand will be my guide
where feet may fail and fear surrounds me.
You've never failed and you won't start now.

Spirit, lead me where my trust is without borders;
let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me.
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander,
and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.
Track Name: He Binds All Our Wounds
Blessed are those, the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven,
and bless-ed are those who mourn
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are those, the meek and lowly,
for they will inherit the earth,
and blessed are those who thirst for righteousness
for they shall be satisfied.

For the LORD lifts up those who are humble.
The LORD casts the wicked to the ground,
and the LORD heals the hurt and broken-hearted,
and he binds up all our wounds.
Praise the LORD; He binds all our wounds

Blessed are those, the true peacemakers
for they shall be called His children.
and blessed are those, the pure in heart,
for they will see God.

Blessed are those, who offer mercy
for mercy they shall also obtain,
and blessed are those reviled for Jesus' sake
for his heaven is their home.

Matthew 5, Psalm 147
adapt. Harrison Hollingsworth, 2014
Track Name: Power in the Blood
Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There's power in the blood, power in the blood.
Would you o'er evil a victory win?
There's wonderful power in the blood.

There is power, power, wonder-working power
in the blood of the Lamb.
There is power, power, wonder-working power
in the precious blood of the Lamb.

Would you be free from your passion and pride?
There's power in the blood, power in the blood.
Come for a cleansing to Calvary's tide;
there's wonderful power in the blood.

Would you do service for Jesus your King?
There's power in the blood, power in the blood.
Would you live daily his praises to sing?
There's wonderful power in the blood.
Track Name: Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us (Blessed Jesus)
Savior, like a shepherd lead us; much we need thy tender care.
In thy pleasant pastures feed us; for our use thy folds prepare.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, thou hast bought us, thine we are.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, thou hast bought us, thine we are.

We are thine, do thou befriend us; be the guardian of our way.
Keep thy flock, from sin defend us; seek us when we go astray.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, hear O hear us when we pray.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, hear O hear us when we pray.

Thou hast promised to receive us; poor and sinful though we be.
Thou hast mercy to relieve us, grace to cleanse and power to free.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, early let us turn to thee.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, early let us turn to thee.

Early let us seek thy favor; early let us do thy will.
Blessed Lord and only savior, with thy love our hearts please fill.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, thou hast loved us, love us still.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, thou hast loved us, love us still.

Dorothy Ann Thrupp, 1836
Track Name: Were You There
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, 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, 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, tremble.
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

Were you there when He rose up from the dead?
Were you there when He rose up from the dead?
Oh, sometimes I feel like shouting "Glory, Glory, Glory"!
Were you there when He rose up from the dead?

African-American spiritual, c. 1850
Track Name: Amazing Grace
Amazing grace (how sweet the sound)
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am 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.

The Lord has promised good to me;
his word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
as long as life endures.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come.
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we've no less days to sing God's praise
than when we first begun

John Newton, 1779
Track Name: Be Thou My Vision
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that thou art.
Thou my best thought by day or by night;
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom and thou my true Word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord.
Thou my great Father, I thy true son;
thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

Be thou my battle shield, sword for the fight;
be thou my dignity, thou my delight.
Thou my soul’s shelter, thou my high tower:
Raise thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise;
thou mine inheritance now and always.
Thou and thou only, first in my heart:
High King of heaven, my treasure thou art.

High King of heaven, my victory won;
may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
