SONGS OF NEW HOPE
(12 choruses designed for public worship)
 



BEFORE THE COMING LORD
(from I Chronicles 16:31-36)

Let the heavens be glad
Let the earth rejoice
Let the oceans roar
Let the field make noise
Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy
Before the coming Lord (AMEN!!)

And let them say among the nations "THE LORD REIGNS"
All of creation PRAISE HIS NAME
And we God's people GIVE HIM THANKS
Blessed be the Lord AMEN!! (repeat to beginning)

 

CENTER OF MY SOUL

Lord You're the center of my soul
Both my beginning and my goal
All that I am and all that I'll be
Draws from the life you give me

You are my wisdom and my strength
On You in all I can depend
Once I was broken, now I'm whole
Lord You're the center of my soul
(repeat to beginning)

You bring the meaning to my days
You are the purpose in my ways
Once I was empty, now I'm full
Lord You're the center of my soul
Lord You're the center of my soul

 

HEAVENS AND EARTH
(from Psalm 136)

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good
God of all gods and Lord of all lords
He does great wonders and made the creation
His lovingkindness is everlasting
His lovingkindness is everlasting

Heavens and earth (xx),
Oceans and stars (xx)
Sun, moon, the day and night,
He's over all! (xx xx xx xx)

We thank You Lord for You are good
God of all gods and Lord of all lords
You do great wonders and made the creation
Your lovingkindness is everlasting
Your lovingkindness is everlasting

Heavens and earth (xx),
Oceans and stars (xx)
Sun, moon, the day and night,
You're over all! (xx xx xx xx)
(repeat second verse)

 

COME TO ME
(COME, TAKE, LEARN)
(Matthew 11: 28-30)

Come, come to Me all who are weary and heavy laden
Come, come to Me and I will give you rest
Come to Me, take My yoke, learn from Me

Take, take My yoke on you for My yoke is easy
Take, take My yoke for My load is light (chorus)

Learn, learn from Me for I am gentle and humble in heart
Learn, learn from Me You will find rest for your souls (chorus)

RECEIVE HIS GRACE
(From Him, Through Him and To Him)

Receive His grace, believe in faith,
Focus your eyes on the Savior.
Set your desires on Jesus, the prize
Delight yourself in His favor,
Delight yourself in His favor.

From Him and through Him and to Him
All things draw life from His river
From Him and through Him and to Him
In Jesus all things hold together
In Jesus all things hold together

 

THIS DAY IS HOLY

YOU ARE AWESOME GOD!!

Let all the earth bow before Your throne
Let all in the world worship You alone

You are awesome God! You are awesome God!
Holy and righteous, Mighty and majestic You are awesome God!!

Stars, moon and sun. Land and sea and sky.
All creation sings as one, "Lord be glorified!" (chorus)

Since the world began, through all history.
We Your saints exalt Your name for eternity (chorus)

 

THINE, O LORD
(I Chronicles 29:11)

Thine, o Lord, is the greatness;
Thine, o Lord, is the power
Thine, o Lord, is the glory
And the majesty and the splendor

For all that is in the heavens and the earth is Yours
Yours is the kingdom and You are exalted as head over all,
Exalted as head over all

 

MY SOUL WITH YOU
(from Psalm 131)

Oh Lord, my heart is not proud nor my eye lifted up
I don't involve myself in things too great or difficult
Like a weaned child at its mother's breast
My soul with You finds comfort and rest
My soul with You finds comfort and rest

Oh Lord, I hunger and thirst, feel so weary and worn
Tired from traveling many miles battered by the storms
As a baby lamb longs for pastures green
Close to my Shepherd I want to be
Close to my Shepherd I want to be (repeat first verse)

 

SEARCH ME, O GOD 
(from Psalm 139:23-24)

Search me, O God, and know my heart
Try me and know my anxious thoughts
See if there be harmful ways in me
Then cleanse me change me, and lead me in Your ways

 

LIKE THE RISING SUN

Your love is like the rising sun
Your love is like the rising sun
Your love is like the rising sun
Ever faithful

Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
So delightful

Your peace, a shelter from the storm
Your peace, a shelter from the storm
Your peace, a shelter from the storm
Safe and restful

Your love is like the rising sun
Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
Your peace, a shelter from the storm
And Lord we're grateful (repeat this verse)

And Lord we're grateful, Lord we're so grateful...
