Peace in the Storm

Recording
Printed Music

The storm engulfs my soul.
O God, You claim You’re here,
But all I see is wind and waves,
And all I feel is fear.

The troubles flooding in
Defy my frantic prayer.
O Savior, are You sound asleep?
O Jesus, do You care?

I long for quick relief.
You long for all my best.
I call You to my anxious fear.
You call me to Your rest.

Almighty, present God,
Each moment fill my view.
My peace is not a circumstance
But always, only You.

Our Lord I AM

Recording
Printed Music

 

Hear the worlds all whispering His name.
Mountains flee before Him.
All who know Him tremble at His voice.
All who fear adore Him.
Pure, complete, and evermore the same,
None can speak all His splendor in a name.
I AM. I AM.
Bow down.
He is I AM.

 

Who can stop the torrent of His love?
Who can test its measure?
Who can feel the fire of His heart?
Who conceive its treasure?
Veiled in glory, near and yet so far,
Life and love are the light of who You are.
I AM. I AM.
You are the Lord
I AM. I AM.
Our life, our Lord I AM.

 

Pure, complete, and evermore the same,
None can speak all His splendor in a name.
I AM. I AM.
You are the Lord
I AM. I AM.
Our life, our Lord I AM.

New in Christ

Recording
Printed Music

New in Christ, now one with our Creator!
All the peace of Eden is restored.
Hear His voice, and feel the morning beauty.
Walk through the day with your loving Lord.
Jesus Christ, our God and now our brother,
Bore our curse and died with all our sin.
Life is complete as He lives within us.
We are holy as we walk with Him.

Risen Son, the first of many children!
Now in Christ a holy race is born.
All will share His glory and His goodness.
See how He glows in their face and form!
Now they come from every tribe and nation.
Feel their joy forever pure and strong!
Hear as they swell to a sea of worship!
Look to Christ and join their mighty song!

Mighty Day

Recording
Printed Music

When the heavens roll and tremble,
When the moon has turned to blood,
When music has fallen silent, Lord,
And fear comes like a flood,

Refrain:
Won’t it be a mighty day!
Won’t it be a solemn day!
Won’t it be a joyful, endless morning, Lord,
When we see You face to face!

Can you hear the peoples wailing,
Can you hear the shouts of praise
When everyone sees eternal truth
Too late to change their ways?

Keep your heart all tuned and ready!
O be faithful to the end!
Your Father will smile and speak your name:
”Well done! Come enter in!”

Love of God, Possess Me

Love of God, possess me.
Rule and set me free,
Free to serve You fully –
Perfect liberty!
Through my words and actions
Let Your kindness flow.
Lead me to Your work, Lord.
Joyfully I’ll go.
Love of God, possess me.
Rule and set me free,
Free to serve You fully –
Perfect liberty!

Truth of God, possess me.
Sing here in my soul.
Share Your precious wisdom.
Speak Your words of gold.
Help me hear each whisper,
Walk in all Your light,
Living every promise,
Pleasing in Your sight.
Truth of God, possess me.
Sing here in my soul.
Share Your precious wisdom.
Speak Your words of gold.

Life in God our Father,
Love in Christ the Son,
Truth in God the Spirit –
Fullness here begun!
Resting in Your power,
Strong in sweet release,
Joyful in Your presence,
Walking in Your peace!
Life in God our Father,
Love in Christ the Son,
Truth in God the Spirit –
Fullness here begun!

Joy in Christ

Recording
Printed Music

We chase so much we don’t possess
To quench a thirst we can’t express.
All is empty restlessness
Till life and joy are found in Christ.
Come, O my Lord, O my Lord, my Lord!
The joy we crave is all in Christ.

Our Lord is God. Our Lord is here.
His heart is kind. His Word is clear:
Faith will chase away all fear
Till joy is full in Jesus Christ.
I turn to You, O my Lord, my Lord!
Today is joy in Jesus Christ.

Though life is filled with weary pain
And nagging problems all remain,
He is every day the same.
Rejoice, rejoice in Jesus Christ!
I sing, my Lord, O my Lord, my Lord!
Rejoice, rejoice in Jesus Christ!

Our Lord, our God, we find in You
A light, a joy for all we do.
Glad in what is always we true,
We worship You, Lord Jesus Christ!
Forevermore, O my Lord, my Lord,
All praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ!

Jesus

Recording
Printed Music

Jesus, Jesus, High and Holy,
You whom worlds cannot contain,
Boundless life no mind can fathom,
Boundless love no word can name;
Yet You share Your life and glory,
Make Your love a simple story,
Glad to share our time and space,
Glad to bathe our sin in grace.

Holy Lord and humble servant,
Mighty God and helpless Child.
Shepherd, lamb, and timeless sovereign
Sin and death could not defile.
Lord, I reach to see and know You,
Lifting love I long to show You,
But You fill my needy heart
As I rest in all You are.

Great Creator, God and Savior,
Light of that eternal day,
All creation stands to worship,
Fills the sky with endless praise.
We Your people bow, confessing,
Lifting honor, praise, and blessing;
This the goal of all we do:
Now, forever only You.

In the Father, Son, and Spirit

Recording
Printed Music

See how small His life began.
The need was so vast,
And Christ was a man.
See the Spirit flowing
Through flesh and bone.
He lived and moved in His Father alone.

See our lives so weak and small.
How little we know!
How easy we fall!
See the Spirit flowing
Through flesh and bone.
Come live and love in our Father alone.

In our weakness we can know
The fullness of life
In life here below.
See the Spirit flowing
Through flesh and bone.
Come live in Christ for the Father alone.

I Rejoice in Your Purpose Today

Recording
Printed Music

I rejoice in Your purpose today
Though the end may feel so far away.
I find peace in the love on Your face
And rejoice in Your purpose today.

I remember that You are the Lord,
And I feast on each promise I’ve heard.
What a strength when I stand on Your Word
And remember that You are the Lord.

Though confusion and struggle are all I can see
And I wrestle alone with my pain,
Lord, I know You are working this all for the best,
And my suffering is never in vain.

I rejoice in Your purpose today
Though the end may feel so far away.
I find peace in the love on Your face
And rejoice in Your purpose today.

I Love You, Jesus, Savior, Lord

Recording
Printed Music

I love You, Jesus, Savior, Lord,
But not for what I gain
Of all the unimagined wealth
Of all Your vast domain.
I love You, Lord, but not in fear
As hell slips into view –
That endless, hopeless pain and death
Of never knowing You.

But Lord, You showed a love for me
That I could not deny.
Your agonizing death, O God –
I knew the guilt was mine.
You called my name. I heard Your voice
And saw You face to face.
A love and mercy flowed from You
That words could never trace.

So how can I but love You now,
My Savior and my Friend?
You pour out love I don’t deserve
And cannot comprehend.
I worship You, Almighty God,
And love You as I sing,
For You are Love and Life and Lord
And my Eternal King!
