"Every time I hear a New Hope song being played during our worship,
the one thing I sense is purity. This is pleasing to the Lord."
(Linda,  from New Hampshire)



1. Thine, O Lord
Key of C, majestic praise
(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


2. The God Of Jerusalem

Key of Em, lively Messianic chorus

There is none like the God of Jerusalem
He descends from the heavens above
With majestic splendor to help us
with His strength, with His might, with His power

Eternal God, our Refuge
Eternal God, our Rock
We find rest in the God of Jerusalem
In His everlasting arms (repeat to beginning)


3. In The Splendor Of Your Courts 

Key of C, good for entering into worship

I come, I long to behold Your beauty, O God
To seek Your face in the splendor of Your courts

Day and night at Your feet
All my life content to be
Just singing praise to the glory of my King

 

Our songs have been used in worship services in Iraq !


4. Oh The Wondrous Cross

Key of G, calypso version of
When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
(lyrics of verses by Isaac Watts)

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

CHORUS:
Oh the wondrous cross
Source of life to me
Jesus paid the cost
To set this sinner free !

Forbid it Lord that I should boast
Save in the cross of Christ, my God
All the vain things that charm me most
I sacrifice them to His blood (chorus)

See from His head, His hands, His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down !
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet ?
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
(chorus 2x)

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were a tribute far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all  
(chorus 2x)

He set this sinner free, oh
He set this sinner free, oh
He set this sinner free !!!

5. Center Of My Soul

Key of C, a spiritual intimacy song,
effective for entering into corporate or private worship

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

6. As The Trees

Key of Em, another lively Messianic chorus
along the lines of "Behold, God Is My Salvation"

As the trees in the woods lift their branches to the sky
So the people of the Lord raise their hands
To their good Creator, to the Author of Life
To the Lord, to the Maker, to the Lamb


Li li li li li
Li li li li li li

Li li li li li li li li li
Li li li li li
Li li li li li li
Li li li li li li li li li

As the birds in the air lift their voices to the sky
So the people of the Lord raise their song
To their good Creator, to the Author of Life
To the Lord, to the Maker, to the Lamb (chorus 2x)

He gives us our daily bread, and a place to rest our heads,
and a place to rest our heads (chorus)

3. Grace and love and joy and peace... in our Lord we have all these...


10. Receive His Grace

Key of C, an invitation to enter His presence

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
