Forever (We Sing Alleluia)

Verse 1

The moon and stars they wept

The morning sun was dead

The Saviour of the world was fallen

His body on the cross

His blood poured out for us

The weight of every curse upon him

Verse 2

One final breath he gave

As heaven looked away

The son of God was laid in darkness

A battle in the grave

The war on death was waged

The power of hell forever broken

Pre-Chorus

The ground began to shake

The stone was rolled away

His perfect love could not be overcome

    Now death where is your sting

Our resurrected king has rendered you defeated

Chorus

Forever, he is glorified

Forever, he is lifted high

Forever, He is risen

He is alive

He is alive

Bridge

We sing hallelujah

We sing hallelujah

We sing hallelujah

The lamb has overcome

We sing hallelujah

We sing hallelujah

We sing hallelujah

The lamb has overcome

Chorus

Ancient of Days (CityAlight)

Verse 1

Though the nations rage, kingdoms rise and fall

There is still one King reigning over all.

So I will not fear for this truth remains

That my God is, the Ancient of Days.

Chorus

None above Him, none before Him

All of time in His hands

For His throne it shall remain and ever stand.

All the power, all the glory

I will trust in His name

For my God is, the Ancient of Days.

Verse 2

Though the dread of night overwhelms my soul

He is here with me, I am not alone.

O His love is sure, and He knows my name

For my God is, the Ancient of Days.

Chorus

Verse 3

Though I may not see 

what the future brings

I will watch and wait for the Saviour King.

Then my joy complete, standing face to face

In the presence of the Ancient of Days.

Chorus

None above Him, none before Him

All of time in His hands

For His throne it shall remain and ever stand

All the power, all the glory

I will trust in His name

For my God is, the Ancient of Days

For my God is, the Ancient of Days

LUYH#22 Rejoice, You Righteous in the Lord

  1. Rejoice, you righteous, in the Lord, 

in song your voices raise;

awake the psaltery and harp, 

lift up God's name in praise!

For by God's word the heavens were hung;

God laid the sea and land, 

and all that fills the firmament 

were made at God's command.

  1. Let every nation, every land

unite with one accord, 

and humbly lay their heart-felt prayers

in awe before the Lord.

How happy are God's faithful ones, 

how blest God's chosen heirs, 

for surely an inheritance 

of glory shall be theirs!

  1. Behold, God's ever-watchful eye

sees through our dark despair;

the arms of grace encircle us 

with strong, yet tender care;

the hope of all the ages past, 

that sets at peace our fears, 

God's mercy and God's steadfast love

shall follow all our years.

Your Grace Is Enough

Verse 1

Great is Your faithfulness, oh God

You wrestle with the sinner's heart

You lead us by still waters and to mercy

And nothing can keep us apart

Pre-Chorus

So remember Your people

Remember Your children

Remember Your promise, oh God

Chorus

Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough

Your grace is enough for me

Verse 2

Great is Your love and justice, God

You use the weak to lead the strong

You lead us in the song of Your salvation

And all Your people sing along

Pre-Chorus
