Out of Bondage Out of bondage, sorrow and night, Into freedom, gladness, and light, Out of sickness, into Your health, Out of my want, into Your wealth, Out of my sin, failure and loss, Into glory, gain of the cross, Out of sorrows into Your balm, Out of life’s storms, into Your calm, (Chorus) You created us to love You and to praise You So amazing Then You saved us in Your glory never ending So amazing Out of unrest and arrogant pride, Into Your blessed, will to abide, Out of myself, to dwell in Your love, Out of despair, raptures above, Out of the fear, and dread of the tomb, Into the joy, light of Your throne, Out of the depths, of ruin untold, Into the peace, Your sheltering fold, (Chorus) Bridge: Jesus I come to Thee, because You first chose me (Chorus)
It is Not Death to Die It is not death to die. To leave this weary road, And join the saints on high, Who’ve found their home with God It is not death to die, To close the eyes with tears And wake before the Throne, Delivered from your fears (Chorus) Oh Jesus conquered the grave. Your precious blood is to save. Those who trust in you will find It is not death to die. It is not death to fling, aside this earthly dust And rise with noble wings, to live among the just It is not death to hear, the key unlock the door Set free from mortal fears, to praise You evermore (Chorus) Jesus prince of life, Your chosen cannot die. We wait and wait in strife, we want our home on high.
O the Deep 04:19
O The Deep O the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast, unmeasured, Boundless, and it’s free! But you must receive Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness it has Washed me clean, and now I see. Underneath me, all around me, is the current Of Your boundless perfect love, it’s you I trust Leading onward, leading homeward to Your glories And Your endless rest above! Cause You are love (Chorus) O the deep love of Jesus O the deep, deep love of Jesus, Spread His praises from the shore to shore And to the furthest seas How He loves us, ever loves us, changing never, Nevermore for me, He has set me free How He watches over His love, died to call us back to himself He loves all, but you must believe How for them He’s interceded, watches over them from the throne High above, in His perfect love (Chorus) Bridge: O the deep, deep love of Jesus, love of everyone An ocean full of rest! O the deep, deep love of Jesus, it’s open up to me; From Him I have received (Chorus)
Deliver Me 04:33
Deliver me (Psalm 3) To the Lord I cry aloud. He answers me from His holy place. I lye down to sleep, I wake up again Because the Lord sustains me I will not fear the many raised up against me (Chorus) Arise deliver me, break the teeth of the wicked. Many rise against me. They say of my soul "there’s no salvation there". You oh Lord are my shield, My glory and the lifter of my head (Chorus) Bridge: Jesus cried aloud, Father forgive them, They know not what they do. And He took all my sin Even though I nailed His hands. His still rescued me He'll return and judge evil. But Jesus has pardoned me. End (Chorus) He rose, delivered me, even though I was wicked
Whatever Gain I told you once, I told you twice, ya look out for the dogs The ones who put their pride in flesh, and confidence in the law I have all reason to boast, a man among all men I tore you down, to raise me up, and I could do it all over again (Chorus) Whatever gain I had I count as loss For knowing You I would pay all it costs Let me be clear when I boast in my confidence It’s not in me, it’s not in men, but in the resurrection I was on top, high on top, at the top, the gain above all gain I was strong, in myself, no one else, by myself But now I have to say Bridge: For His sake I have suffered the loss Of all things and count them rubbish
Take the Pain Away On and on you go same thing Never change but you Have all the control you do Taking your life is not the way Looking to the One The One who made the way for you (Chorus) Take take take the pain away, say Take take take the pain away, say Take take take the pain away, say Pain away from me Time and time again same thing It is time for you Take back the control you do The power you give is all they have All the strength from you The strength they have and hold over you (Chorus)
Thy Will Be Done My God, my Father, while I stray Far from my home in life's rough way, O teach me from my heart to say, "Thy will be done." 1x Though dark my path, and sad my lot, Let me be still and worry not, O breath the prayer Divinely taught, "Thy will be done." (Repeat) 2x Let but my fainting heart be blest With Your sweet Spirit for its Guest, My God, to You I leave the rest; "Thy will be done." (Repeat) 4x Renew my will from day to day, Blend it with Yours, and take away All that now makes it hard to say, "Thy will be done." (Repeat) 4x
Blessed Be Your Name Blessed be Your name, In the land that is plentiful Where Your streams of abundance flow, blessed be Your name. Blessed be Your name, when I'm found in the desert place Though I walk through the wilderness blessed be Your name (Pre-Chorus) Every blessing You pour out, I'll turn back to praise When the darkness closes in Lord, still I will say. (Chorus) Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be Your name Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be Your glorious name Blessed be Your name, when the suns shining down on me When the worlds all as it should be, blessed be Your name Blessed be Your name, on the road marked with suffering Though there's pain in the offering blessed be Your name (Chorus) Bridge: You give and take away, You give and take away. My heart will choose to say Lord, blessed be Your name (Chorus)
Did Christ Over Sinners Weep Did Christ over sinners weep, and shall our cheeks be dry? Let floods of rules and grief, burst forth from every eye Behold the Son of God in tears, the angels wondering see. O my soul, He shed those tears for me e ee ee (Chorus) He wept, that we might weep, each sin demands a tear. In heaven, alone no sin is found, and there's no weeping there. Joy beams in every eye, and fills each holy heart All join to sound the trumpet high, in praise to bear their part In praise to bear their part, in praise to bear their part, In praise to bear their part. (Chorus) Possible first song sometimes Possible melody change for verses Or a slower version for focus
In Christ Alone In Christ alone our hope is found, Our Cornerstone, our solid ground He is our light our strength my song, Firm through the fiercest drought and storm In Christ alone, who took of flesh, This gift of love and righteousness Fullness of God in helpless babe, Scorned by the ones He came to save. (Chorus) What heights of love, what depths of peace, When fears are stilled when striving cease! Our comforter, Our all in all, here in the love of Christ we stand There in the ground His body lay, Light of the world by darkness slain Then bursting forth, in glorious day, Up from the grave He rose again. No guilt in life, no fear in death, From life's first cry to final breath This is the power of Christ in me, Jesus commands my destiny (Chorus) Till on that cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied For every sin on Him was laid, here in the death of Christ we live And as He stands in victory, sins curse has lost its grip on me For I am His and He is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ No guilt in life, no fear in death, From life's first cry to final breath This is the power of Christ in me, Jesus commands my destiny (Chorus) No power of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck us from His hand Till He returns or calls us home, here in the power of Christ we stand No power of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck us from His hand Till He returns or calls us home, here in the power of Christ we stand
Weeping Prophet Sermon: Where is Gods response, we wonder will suffering then have the last word? Will despair be triumphant in the life of a man dedicated to obeying God? God says in chapter 1, before you were born I set you apart and I have appointed you as a prophet for the nations Verse1 Among Your wrath please love, restore Your servant, Lord 
 Or let a Father’s prove, like an avenger’s sword. Your arrows stick in my heart, my flesh is sorely pressed
 Between the sorrow the smart, my spirit finds no rest. Sermon: Why is He not acting? If we don’t have a theology of suffering, if suffering doesn’t fit into our idea of what Christianity is, then we’ll say, “better had I died in my mothers womb”. Verse 2 My sins a heavy burden, over my head are gone
 Too heavy for me to bear, I can not atone. My thoughts are like a troubled seas, my head still bending down
 I go mourning all the day, beneath my Father’s frown. (Chorus) You are my God, my only hope, my God will hear my cry! 
 My God will bear my spirit up, when Satan bids me die. Sermon: Ephesians 1:4 “for He”, God, “chose us in Him” Christ, before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight”. Chosen to be happy did it say? Chosen to be comfortable, chosen to walk on easy street? No, God has chosen you to be holy. Set apart for Him without blemish or stain of sin. And he is working that out in your life right now. He is able to use the pain, sin and suffering of this world, that even the works of the enemy to accomplish His task. It’s not your happiness, but your holiness. So that you might be able to dwell with God eternally. He has the end goal in mind. He knows what He’s working towards. And it’s in that way the He will be most glorified. Paul, writing from prison expresses that the church, in Ephesians he says, “It is able to manifest Gods glory to world, particularly brightly because of how we handle suffering, and handle the troubles of the world. Bridge: My foot is ever apt to slide, my foes rejoice to see they rise
 Their pleasure & their pride, when they supplant my feet. But I’ll confess my guilt to Thee, and grieve for all my sin
I’ll mourn, How weak my graces be and beg support divine from thee, My God, forgive my follies past, and be for ever nigh;
 My salvation, haste, before Thy servant die. (Chorus) Sermon: But how? How can we be sure? How can we be sure that God is able to take oppression and suffering and turn into our good and His glory? Because we have the cross. Jesus Himself is the best example of this. He understood His calling. In the upper room He says, “I will not speak with you much longer”, He’s saying I don’t have a lot of time. “For the prince of the world” we call him Satan, “is coming”. “Don’t worry he has no hold on me” He can’t handle me. “But the world must learn that I love the Father, and I do exactly what my Father has commanded me”. Perfect God who took on humanity so that He might show perfect obedience, take on our sin and punishment that we deserve, conquer the power of sin and death by rising again. And yet God used it for the greatest good possible. The redemption and justification of His people. You redemption, my redemption, which results in Gods greatest glory.
Wounded for Me Woh oh oh oh oh oh Wounded, wounded for me There on the cross, He was wounded for me Gone my transgressions, now I’m free All because Jesus was wounded for me Dyin, dyin for me There on the cross, He was dying for me Now in His death, my redemption I see All because Jesus was dyin for me (Chorus) Woh oh oh oh oh oh How deep the Fathers love for us Woh oh oh oh oh oh How vast beyond all measure Woh oh oh oh oh oh That He would give His only Son Woh oh oh oh oh oh To make a wretch His treasure Risen, risen for me Up from the grave, He has risen for me Evermore from deaths sting I am free All because Jesus has risen for me (Chorus) Bridge: Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe, Jesus paid it all Comin, comin for me One day to earth, He is comin for me Then with what joy His dear face I shall see Oh how I praise Him, He is comin for me
