How Rich a Treasure We Possess

How rich a treasure we possess, in Jesus Christ our Lord; 
His blood our ransom and defense, His glory our reward. 
The sum of all created things is worthless in compare, 
For our inheritance is Him whose praise angels declare.


How free and costly was the love displayed upon the cross; 
While we were dead in untold sin, the Sovereign purchased us. 
The will of God the Father demonstrated through the Son; 
The Spirit seals the greatest work: the work which Christ has done.


How vast and measureless the flood of mercy unrestrained! 
The penalty was paid in full; the spotless Lamb was slain. 
Salvation, what a priceless gift received by grace through faith. 
We stand in robes of righteousness; we stand in Jesus’ name.


Bridge 
For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory! 
Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory; 
Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory! 

Amen, amen, amen. 

 

 

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

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 His Name–I'm fixed upon it–

Name of God's redeeming love.

 

Hither to Thy love has blest me;

Thou hast bro’t me to this place;

And I know Thy hand will bring me

Safely home by Thy good grace.

Jesus sought me when a stranger,

Wandering from the fold of God;

He, to rescue me from danger,

Bought me with 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.

 

 

Afflicted Saint, to Christ Draw Near

Verse 1

Afflicted saint, to Christ draw near,

Your Savior’s gracious promise hear;

His faithful Word you can believe:

That as your days your strength shall be.

 

Verse 2

Your faith is weak, your foes are strong,

And if the conflict should be long,

The Lord will make the tempter flee

That as your days your strength shall be.

 

Refrain

So, sing with joy, afflicted one;

The battle’s fierce, but the victory’s won!

God shall supply all that you need;

Yes, as your days your strength shall be.

 

Verse 3

Should persecution rage and flame,

Still trust in your Redeemer’s name.

In fiery trials you shall see

That as your days your strength shall be.

 

Verse 4

When called to bear your weighty cross

Or sore affliction, pain, or loss,

Or deep distress or poverty,

Still as your days your strength shall be.

 

 

He Will Hold Me Fast

When I fear my faith will fail,

Christ will hold me fast;

When the tempter would prevail,

He will hold me fast.

I could never keep my hold

Through life’s fearful path,

For my love is often cold;

He must hold me fast.

 

Refrain:

He will hold me fast,

He will hold me fast;

For my Savior loves me so,

He will hold me fast.

 

Those He saves are His delight,

Christ will hold me fast;

Precious in His holy sight,

He will hold me fast.

He’ll not let my soul be lost,

His promises shall last;

Bought by Him at such a cost,

He will hold me fast.

Refrain

 

For my life He bled and died,

Christ will hold me fast;

Justice has been satisfied;

He will hold me fast.

Raised with Him to endless life,

He will hold me fast

‘Til our faith is turned to sight

When He comes at last!

Refrain

 

Yet Not I, But Through Christ In Me

Verse 1

What gift of grace is Jesus my Redeemer!

There is no more for heaven now to give;

He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom,

My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace.

 

Refrain 1

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus!

For my life is wholly bound to His.

Oh, how strange and divine, I can sing, “All is mine!”

Yet not I, but through Christ in me.

 

Verse 2

The night is dark, but I am not forsaken

For by my side, the Savior, He will stay.

I labor on in weakness and rejoicing,

For in my need, His power is displayed.

 

Refrain 2

To this I hold: my Shepherd will defend me!

Through the deepest valley He will lead.

Oh, the night has been won, and I shall overcome!

Yet not I, but through Christ in me.

 

Verse 3

No fate I dread—I know I am forgiven;

The future sure, the price, it has been paid;

For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon,

And He was raised to overthrow the grave.

 

Refrain 3

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated!

Jesus now and ever is my plea.

Oh, the chains are released, I can sing, “I am free!”

Yet not I, but through Christ in me.

 

Verse 4

With every breath I long to follow Jesus,

For He has said that He will bring me home;

And day by day I know He will renew me

Until I stand with joy before the throne.

 

Refrain 4

To this I hold; my hope is only Jesus!

All the glory evermore to Him.

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat,

“Yet not I, but through Christ in me!”

 

To this I hold; my hope is only Jesus!

All the glory evermore to Him.

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat,

“Yet not I, but through Christ in me!”
