I Surrender All

Silently
I wait for thee
Patiently
Down on my knees
Praying to you
Fervently
Lord please hear my cry

Listening
To hear your voice
In you, Oh Lord
I now rejoice
As you speak
I make a choice
Lord I surrender all

All to thee Lord
All to thee
I surrender all
All to thee Lord
All to thee
I surrender alll

He Gives Me the Power

He gives me the power
Resurrection power
Dead come back to life
Sight unto the blind

He gives me the power
Overwhelming power
Darkness into light
Dormant take to flight

By His blood I can do anything
By His cross His praise is all I sing

What a Savior. What a friend
Who brought me up from the grave
What a wondrous gift He gives
All my days for Him I’ll live

He gives me the power
Overcoming power
Sadness becomes joy
Peace that calms the storm

By His blood I can do anything
By His cross His praise is all I sing

What a Savior. What a friend
Who brought me up from the grave
What a wondrous gift He gives
All my days for Him I’ll live

Hallelujah. Hallelujah
Hallelujah. Hallelujah
What a Savior. What a friend
I will love Him ‘til my end

You Amaze Me

Out of the ashes. Out of the night
Out of the darkness. I come to you

Out of my sin. Out of my pain
Out of my weakness. I come to you

CHORUS
You wait for me to come to you
I stand amazed at your great love
You died for me when I was lost
What a gracious God you are
What a gracious God you are

Into your presence. Into your light
Into your Spirit. I come to you

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You amaze me
You amaze me
You amaze me by your mercy Lord (REPEAT)

CHORUS

The Only One

Where does the power come from
Where does your grace reside
Where can I find forgiveness
At the cross. The wonderful cross

Where was I healed from sickness
Where was my shame washed away
Where is there found true freedom
At the cross. The wonderful cross

CHORUS
No other place on earth nor in heaven high above
Has God come down to man to show His eternal love
No sacrifice was greater than God giving His only son
No other one can save us. Jesus is the only one

Where did He give me new life
Where was heaven made home
Where did He gain the victory
At the tomb when He rose again

CHORUS

BRIDGE
He rose in power and glory
He rose in majesty
He rose so we could rise with Him
When He shall return again

CHORUS

Precious Are Your Thoughts To Me

You knew me when I did not know you
You cared for me when I did not care
You loved me when I cursed your name out loud
What a Savior you are to me

You saw me when sin was my playground
You sought me in that miry clay
You searched for my heart when my heart was stone
What a Savior you are to me

CHORUS
Precious are your thoughts to me
More than I can count
More than I know
Precious are your thoughts to me
What a Savor, what a friend indeed

You are there by my side when I need you
You hear me when I call your name
You wrap your arms around me when I’m hurt and feel alone
What a Savior you are you me

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Savior and friend
You love ‘til the end
You captured my heart
Right from the start
You fill all my needs
Forgive my misdeeds
How marvelous is your grace
How marvelous is your grace

CHORUS

Psalm 40 Chorus

I waited patiently on the Lord
Then He inclined to me
He heard my cry
Oh, Lord, I love you so (REPEAT)

You picked me up
Out of the miry clay
Set my feet
On the rock to stay

There’s a new song in my mouth
Praises to my God
Praises to my King
Praises to my Lord

Victory by Death

He was beaten, bruised and torn
His body tired and worn
Yet he did not speak a word in His defense
A crown of thorns upon His head
His forehead slowly bled
Then pain and agony was quite intense

Then they placed a robe upon Him
With a scepter in His hands
The guard knelt down and mocked Him as a King
Little did they know their words
Were true through all of time
Because He was indeed the King of Kings

The cross was laid upon His back
He fell beneath its weight
His weak and bloody body just gave out
They led Him to Golgotha
They nailed Him to the cross
Forgive them was His final living shout

They thought they had the victory
But soon they would find out
That what they did would touch all of mankind
Three days He laid a dead man
But then He rose again
The victory over life and death complete

He brought us victory that day
He showed us His amazing grace
By dying and then rising up again
Now we should live for Him
His Word deep down within
For soon He will be coming back again
