He Reigns

It’s the song of the redeemed Rising from the African plain
It’s the song of the forgiven Drowning out the Amazon rain
The song of Asian believers Filled with God’s holy fire
It’s every tribe, every tongue, every nation A love song born of a grateful choir 


It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns


Let it rise about the four winds Caught up in the heavenly sound
Let praises echo from the towers of cathedrals To the faithful gathered underground
Of all the songs sung from the dawn of creation Some were meant to persist
Of all the bells rung from a thousand steeples None rings truer than this
 
It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns


And all the powers of darkness Tremble at what they’ve just heard
‘Cause all the powers of darkness Can’t drown out a single word

It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns

It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns

It’s the song of the redeemed Rising from the African plain
 

Glorious Day 

I was buried beneath my shame
Who could carry that kind of weight
It was my tomb Till I met You

I was breathing but not alive
All my failures I tried to hide
It was my tomb Till I met You

You called my name
And I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness Into Your glorious day

Now Your mercy has saved my soul
Now Your freedom is all I know

The old made new Jesus, when I met You

You called my name
And I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness Into Your glorious day



I needed rescue, My sin was heavy

But chains break at the weight of Your glory
I needed shelter, I was an orphan
Now You call me a citizen of heaven
When I was broken, You were my healing
Your love is the air that I’m breathing
I have a future My eyes are open
Cuz when You called my name

I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day

 

What A Beautiful Name

You were the Word at the beginning
One with God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus, You brought heaven down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now

What a wonderful Name it is
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a wonderful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Death could not hold You,
the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring
the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again

You have no rival,
You have no equal
Now and forever, God, You reign
Yours is the Kingdom,
Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name above all names

What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is
nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
 

Be A Light

In a time full of war, be peace
In a time full of doubt, just believe
Yeah, there ain’t that much difference between you and me
In a time full of war, be peace
 
In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light
(La-la-la, la, la, la, la)
 
In a place that needs a change, make a difference
In a time full of noise, just listen
‘Cause life is but a breeze, better live it
In a place that needs a change, make a difference
 
In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Oh, don’t hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light
 
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la, la, la, la, la
 
In a race that you can’t win, slow it down
Yeah, you only get one go around
‘Cause the finish line is six feet in the ground
In a race you can’t win, just slow it down
 
In a world full of hate, be a light (oh)
When you do somebody wrong, make it right (make it right)
Don’t hide in the dark (don’t hide in the dark), you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light
 

Yeah, it’s hard to live in color, when you just see black and white
In a world full of hate, be a light

#697 America

1. My country,’ tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty,
of thee I sing;
land where my fathers died,
land of the pilgrims’ pride,
from every mountainside
let freedom ring!

2. My native country, thee,
land of the noble free,
thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
thy woods and templed hills;
my heart with rapture thrills,
like that above.

3. Let music swell the breeze,
and ring from all the trees
sweet freedom’s song;
let mortal tongues awake;
let all that breathe partake;
let rocks their silence break,
the sound prolong.

4. Our fathers’ God, to thee,
author of liberty,
to thee we sing;
long may our land be bright
with freedom’s holy light;
protect us by thy might,
great God, our King.
 
 
#463 Lord Speak to Me
 
1. Lord, speak to me, that I may speak
in living echoes of thy tone;
as thou has sought, so let me seek
thine erring children lost and lone.

2. O strengthen me, that while I stand
firm on the rock, and strong in thee,
I may stretch out a loving land
to wrestlers with the troubled sea.

3. O teach me, Lord, that I may teach
the precious things thou dost impart;
and wing my words, that they may reach
the hidden depths of many a heart.

4. O fill me with thy fullness, Lord,
until my very heart o’erflow
in kindling thought and glowing word,
thy love to tell, thy praise to show.

5. O use me, Lord, use even me,
just as thou wilt, and when, and where,
until thy blessed face I see,
thy rest, thy joy, thy glory share.
