Pictures of God’s Love

Throughout His life and teachings,
Jesus drew a variety of pictures of
the Father’s love.
The most compelling was
His own self-sacrifice.
Set to a familiar tune.

Recording
Printed Music

A father runs with streaming tears –
His son, once dead, now lives!
His joyful love gives just a glimpse
Of how our God forgives.

A leper comes back home again,
The lame now leap and dance –
God’s gifts can only start to trace
The deep, divine romance.

His flesh and blood, our bread and wine –
He makes Himself our feast.
In death He serves His life to feed
The meanest and the least.

Discover now by childlike faith
What God delights to show:
A joyful, overflowing love
That every life can know.

Christ in Psalm 3

Christ is
our shield and our salvation
in the face of
evil and all its threats.
To a familiar tune.

Recording
Printed Music

Evil opposes You, my Lord,
And those You free from sin.
It sneers and shouts its deadly lies
And whispers here within.

You are my shield, O living Christ,
My truth, my strength, my light,
My joy, my song throughout the day,
My keeper through the night.

I can lie down and safely rest,
Secure in all You are –
Unfailing light when all is dark,
The Bright and Morning Star.

You are salvation, O my God,
Pure love in all You do,
And all are holy, safe, and strong
Who simply trust in You.

Transfiguration Hymn

This hymn helps
bring home the truth about the
transfiguration of Christ, and
to a familiar tune.

Recording
Printed Music

See our Lord in all His glory,
Now arrayed in dazzling white!
See Him shine in holy splendor,
Bathed in everlasting light!
See the law and prophets gather,
Lifting high the Living Christ!
Lifting high the Living Christ!

See the cloud of ancient fire
Guiding through our wilderness.
Hear the voice of God our Father.
Hear the love His words express:
This my Son is pure and pleasing.
Hear the blessing that He brings!
Hear the blessing that He brings!

Jesus Lord, we see Your splendor
Here and now by daily faith.
In our service, in our suffering
We will follow unafraid,
On from glory into glory
Till we see You face to face,
Till we see You face to face.

Be Still

Like a lullaby,
this hymn calls us to
rest in
our heavenly Father’s arms.

Recording
Printed Music

When all you see is darkness,
And pain is all that’s real,
When empty words and promises
Don’t change the way you feel,

Refrain
Child, be still,
Be still,
Be still and know I am God.
Be still,
Be still,
Be still and know I am God.

When heaven doesn’t answer
Your deep and desperate prayer,
When grief for those so near and dear
Is more than you can bear,

Remember, I am always good,
Though shadows hide my face.
Don’t ever fear what lies ahead,
For all I am is grace.

Psalm 28

This Psalm setting is
a cry of trust
in deep need,
set to a fresh arrangement of
a familiar tune.

Recording
Printed Music

Death and darkness, fear profound,
Luring, threatening all around,
Empty claims and selfish lies,
Angry, lost-and-desperate cries.

Lord, to You alone I turn,
Asking help I cannot earn.
You will listen, You will hear
Faith imperfect, yet sincere.

I am blind, and You are sight.
I am shadow, You are light.
I am weakness through and through;
You, the strength that I pursue.

Saving, blessing, loving Lord,
Shepherd, sovereign, feared, adored,
Always right in all You do,
Mighty God, I trust in You!

Beyond Myself

This hymn asks God to stretch
our faith and
our love
beyond ourselves.

Recording
Printed Music

Beyond myself, Lord,
Beyond myself –
Draw my eyes, draw my thoughts
Beyond myself.
As I face this day,
As I pause to pray,
Father God, draw my thoughts
Beyond myself.

Beyond my needs, Lord,
Beyond my needs –
Lead my heart, lead my hands
Beyond my needs.
In this sea of pain,
Lord, Your will is plain.
You are love. Lead my hands
Beyond my needs.

Beyond my strength, Lord,
Beyond my strength –
Make me strong, make me bold
Beyond my strength.
I am weak, it’s true,
But I live in You.
Father God, make me bold
Beyond my strength.

My Life Is Not My Own

All we are belongs to our
Creator and
Redeemer,
so we open ourselves to Him – to
His love, His presence,
His Spirit, His truth, His will.
This is a gentle hymn of consecration set in a
light contemporary style.

Recording
Printed Music

My life is not my own.
I belong to You.
I live before Your throne.
I belong to You.

My days are not my own.
I belong to You.
My life is Yours alone.
I belong to You.

I open myself to You, Lord.
I open my heart to Your searching.
I open my life to Your love
For those around me.

I open my mind to Your truth.
I open my hands in Your service.
I open my mouth and I praise
The One who gave me life.

My life is not my own.
I belong to You.
I live before Your throne.
I belong to You.

My days are not my own.
I belong to You.
My life is Yours alone.
I belong, I belong to You.

God Is Calling

This hymn celebrates
the beautiful truth that God is
always,
everywhere, calling
everyone to Himself.
To a familiar tune.

Recording
Printed Music

God is calling, always calling
Through all time and everywhere,
Calling all to come and know Him,
Calling souls now unaware.

What a love, so undiscouraged,
Tender still, though hearts are hard.
Hear His voice through all the ages.
Hear Him whisper in Your heart.

Sin and death rise all around us,
But look up! Don’t be afraid!
Christ has died, and Christ has risen!
Hear Him call, “The price is paid!”

Father God, as through the ages,
You are calling out today,
Calling us to join Your purpose.
Lord, we hear, and we obey.

full assurance for the future.

The pattern of Your loving plan.

A glimpse of all that is to be.

All life is always only You!
We exalt You! Alleluia!
We exalt You! Alleluia!
Alleluia!
