Track Name: Dear Christians One And All Rejoice
VERSE 1
Dear Christians one and all rejoice
With exultation springing
And with united heart and voice
And holy rapture singing
Proclaim the wonders God hath done
How His right arm the victory won
Right dearly it hath cost Him
Right dearly it hath cost Him

VERSE 2
My good works could avail me naught
For they with sin were stained
Free will against God's judgment fought
And dead to good remained
Grief drove me to despair and I
Had nothing left me but to die
To hell I fast was sinking
To hell I fast was sinking

VERSE 3
God saw in His eternal grace
My sorrow out of measure
He thought upon His tenderness
To save was His good pleasure
He turned to me a Father’s heart
Not-small the cost to heal my smart
He gave His dearest Treasure
He gave His dearest Treasure

VERSE 4
He spoke to His beloved Son
'Tis time to take compassion
Then go bright Jewel of My crown
And bring to man salvation
From sin and sorrow set him free
Slay bitter death for him that he
May live with Thee forever
May live with Thee forever
Track Name: And We Sing
VERSE 1
Before the throne of God the angels sing
Together with the throng of the redeemed
To praise the righteous Holy One
For sweet redemption through His Son

CHORUS
And we sing
Worthy is the Lamb
Who was slain
Slain for sinful man
To redeem
To redeem

VERSE 2
Behold the Lamb who takes away our sin
Salvation comes to all who trust in Him
Believe the Lord, believe His word
His promises you now have heard

VERSE 3
Behold the Father’s gift makes all things new
His promises are trustworthy and true
His work is done, our knees will bend
He’s the beginning and the end

BRIDGE
All power and wealth and wisdom and might
All honor and glory and blessing
Belong to Christ
All power and wealth and wisdom and might
All honor and glory and blessing
Belong to Christ
Track Name: Pleasures Forevermore
VERSE 1
Preserve me O God
I take refuge in You
Apart from your grace
No good works can I do
Your saints are the glorious ones
The seal of great works You have done

CHORUS
You have shown me the path of life
In Your presence is fullness of joy
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore
Pleasures forevermore

VERSE 2
Days of sorrow have passed
Chasing idols of stone
Now Your name on my lips
Sweetest taste I have known
The cross is the place I adore
Where the sinner will find heaven’s door

VERSE 3
Lord give me strength
And counsel my heart
Be always before me
And always my rock
You called me and made me Your own
An heir at the foot of Your throne
Track Name: What A Place Is This
VERSE 1
Let us go up to the place
Where our burdens tumbled down
To recall His mournful face
The nails and wounds and thorny crown
Where punishment that we deserved
Was measured out on One so pure
O what a place, is this
The beginning of our bliss

VERSE 2
O how dark that empty tomb
That swallowed death in victory
Where sorrow brings eternal rest
Where death brings life eternally
Where streams of tears and shouts of joy
Bring forth an everlasting song
O what a place, is this
The beginning of our bliss

CHORUS
Burdens fall down
Souls are unbound
What a cross, what a tomb, what a Savior
Burdens fall down
Souls are unbound
What a cross, what a tomb, what a Savior

VERSE 3
We must look and look again
At the wonders of the cross
Filthy rags have been removed
We are clothed in righteousness
And as we stand at journey’s end
Heaven’s gates will open wide
O what a place, is this
The beginning of our bliss
Track Name: All Of Grace
VERSE 1
Before the dawn of all mankind
He called us each by name
And though He knew our helpless state
He chose us just the same
And wandering to a fiery death
He found me just in time
I heard the sound of His great love
The Savior, gave His life for mine

Chorus
Grace, all of grace
He called us each by name
Forever we are changed
Grace, amazing grace
He gave His life for me
I’m His eternally

VERSE 2
There's nothing I could ever do
To earn a grace so free
For all it took was just one sin
To damn eternally
And that is why the blood of Christ
Alone could wash away
For sin demands an awful price
That only Christ could pay

BRIDGE
You called my name
You bore my shame
Forever I am yours
You called my name
You bore my shame
Forever I am changed
Forever I am yours
Track Name: Let Every Knee Come Bow
VERSE 1
Jesus, the name above all names
Let every rescued soul proclaim
On earth below, above the skies
Exalt the name of Jesus Christ

VERSE 2
The Father’s heart devised a plan
His only Son became a man
A sinless life a sacrifice
A risen Savior reigns on high

CHORUS 1
Let every knee come bow before
The risen One let us adore
And every tongue confess His name
That He is Lord let us proclaim

VERSE 3
To save His enemies He came
To one’s who scorned and mocked His name
They bruised, they beat, they spit and cussed
They nailed the Savior to a cross

VERSE 4
And one day we shall see His face
And bask in His amazing grace
On thrones above, down streets of gold
Forever let His deeds be told

CHORUS 2
Then every knee will bow before
The Holy One we will adore
And every tongue confess His name
That He is Lord we will proclaim
