SONG LYRICS

Come Thou Fount Come Thou King

Come Thou Fount of ev’ry blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help I’ve come
And I hope by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood

Come Thou Fount come Thou King
Come Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride to You we sing
Come Thou Fount of our blessing

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
Let Thy goodness like a fetter
Bind my wand’ring heart to Thee
Prone to wander Lord I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart Lord take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

Come Thou Fount come Thou King
Come Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride to You we sing
Come Thou Fount of our blessing

Come Thou Fount come Thou King
Come Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride to You we sing
Come Thou Fount of our blessing

Before The Throne of God Above

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is Love
Whoever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heav’n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Praise the One, Risen Son of God

Behold Him there the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I Am
The King of glory and of grace
One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased with His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God
With Christ my Savior and my God

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Praise the One, Risen Son of God

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Praise the One, Risen Son of God

Great I Am

I wanna be close close to Your side
So Heaven is real and death is a lie
I wanna hear voices of angels above
Singing as one

Hallelujah holy holy
God Almighty great I Am
Who is worthy none beside Thee
God Almighty
The Great I Am

I wanna be near near to Your heart
Loving the world hating the dark
I wanna see dry bones living again

Hallelujah holy holy
God Almighty great I Am
Who is worthy none beside Thee
God Almighty, The Great I Am

The mountains shake before You
The demons run and flee
At the mention of Your name King of majesty
There is no pow’r in hell or any who can stand
Before the power and the Presence of the Great I Am
The Great I Am, The Great I Am
The Great I Am, The Great I Am
The Great I Am

Hallelujah holy holy
God Almighty great I Am
Who is worthy none beside Thee
God Almighty, The Great I Am

The Great I Am, The Great I Am
The Great I Am

The mountains shake before You
The demons run and flee
At the mention of Your name King of majesty
There is no pow’r in hell or any who can stand
Before the power and the Presence of the Great I Am
The Great I Am, The Great I Am
The Great I Am, The Great I Am
The Great I Am

Hallelujah holy holy
God Almighty great I Am
Who is worthy none beside Thee
God Almighty, The Great I Am

The Great I Am, The Great I Am
The Great I Am

Christ The Sure and Steady Anchor

Christ the sure and steady anchor
In the fury of the storm
When the winds of doubt blow through me
And my sails have all been torn
In the suffering in the sorrow
When my sinking hopes are few
I will hold fast to the anchor
It shall never be removed

Christ the sure and steady anchor
While the tempest rages on
When temptation claims the battle
And it seems the night has won
Deeper still then goes the anchor
Though I justly stand accused
I will hold fast to the anchor
It shall never be removed

Christ the sure and steady anchor
Through the floods of unbelief
Hopeless somehow O my soul now
Lift your eyes to Calvary
This my ballast of assurance
See His love forever proved
All my hope is in the anchor
It shall never be removed

Christ the sure and steady anchor
As we face the wave of death
When these trials give way to glory
As we draw our final breath
We will cross that great horizon
Clouds behind and life secured
And the calm will be the better
For the storms that we endured

Christ the shore of our salvation
Ever faithful ever true
We will hold fast to the anchor
It shall never be removed
