Benediction

 

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace! how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind but now I see.

 

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,

And grace my fears relieved;

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed.

 

The Lord has promised good to me,

His word my hope secures;

He will my shield and portion be

As long as life endures.

 

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,

I have already come;

'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,

And grace will lead me home.

 

When we've been there ten thousand years,

Bright shining as the sun,

We've no less days to sing God's praise

Than when we'd first begun.

 

 

And Can It Be?

And can it be that I should gain

An int’rest in the Savior’s blood?

Died He for me, who caused His pain?

For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! How can it be

That Thou, my God, should’st die for me?

 

Refrain:

Amazing love! How can it be

That Thou, my God, should’st die for me?

 

He left His Father’s throne above,

So free, so infinite His grace!

Humbled Himself, so great His love,

And bled for Adam’s helpless race!

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free,

For, O my God, it found out me!

(Refrain)

 

Long my imprisoned spirit lay

Fast bound in sin and nature’s night.

Thine eye diffused a quickening ray:

I woke—the dungeon flamed with light!

My chains fell off, my heart was free,

I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

(Refrain)

 

No condemnation now I dread:

Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!

Alive in Him, my living Head,

And clothed in righteousness divine,

Bold I approach the eternal throne,

And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

(Refrain)

 

Lord Most High / He Is Exalted (Medley)

From the ends of the earth

(From the ends of the earth)
From the depth of the sea

(From the depth of the sea)
From the heights of the heaven

(From the height of the heaven)
Your name be praised!

From the hearts of the weak

(From the hearts of the weak)
From the shouts of the strong

(From the shouts of the strong)
From the lips of all people

(From the lips of all people)
Your song we raise, Lord!

Throughout the endless ages
You will be crowned with praises,
Lord, Most High!
Exalted in every nation,
Sovereign of all creation;
Lord Most High,
Be magnified!

 

He is Exalted

He is exalted, the King is exalted on High!

I will praise Him;

He is exalted, forever exalted

And I will praise His name.

 

For He is the Lord—

Forever His truth shall reign!

Heaven and Earth

Rejoice in His holy name!

He is exalted, the King is exalted on high.

Come, Behold the Wondrous Mystery

Come, behold the wondrous mystery

In the dawning of the King.

He the theme of heaven’s praises,

Robed in frail humanity.

In our longing, in our darkness

Now the light of life has come.

Look to Christ, who condescended,

Took on flesh to ransom us.

 

Come, behold the wondrous mystery

He the perfect Son of Man.

In His living, in His suffering,

Never trace nor stain of sin.

See the true and better Adam

Come to save the hell-bound man;

Christ, the great and sure fulfillment

Of the law; in Him we stand.

 

Come, behold the wondrous mystery

Christ the Lord upon the tree.

In the stead of ruined sinners

Hangs the Lamb in victory.

See the price of our redemption;

See the Father’s plan unfold.

Bringing many sons to glory;

Grace unmeasured, love untold.

 

Come, behold the wondrous mystery;

Slain by death, the God of life.

But no grave could e’er restrain Him;

Praise the Lord; He is alive!

What a foretaste of deliverance;

How unwavering our hope.

Christ in power resurrected

As we will be when He comes.
