WELCOME!

Bethany is a church family following Jesus together.

We sing His praises. We pray in His name. We teach His Word. We love His people. We share His message. All this and more we do together because THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM.

Whether you’ve been following Jesus for years or are just getting started, we hope today you experience the good news of Jesus and discover how to take the next step on the path of following Him.

Grace Greater Than Our Sin

Marvellous grace of our loving Lord
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt

Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin

Sin and despair like the sea waves cold
Threaten the soul with infinite loss
Grace that is greater yes grace untold
Points to the refuge the mighty Cross

Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide
What can avail to wash it away
Look there is flowing a crimson tide
Whiter than snow you may be today

Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin

Marvellous infinite matchless grace
Freely bestowed on all who believe
You that are longing to see His face
Will you this moment His grace receive

Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin

Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace grace God’s grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin

Christ Be All

Marvellous grace of our loving Lord
Oh to be empty and lowly
Meek and unnoticed, and unknown
And to God a vessel holy
Filled with Christ, and Christ alone

How great is God! His grandeur endless
How frail I come before his throne
I am lost in love relentless
That Christ be all, and I his own

May Christ be all and I be nothing
His glory shines in vessels weak
May Christ be all and I be nothing
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me

I am poor, and I have nothing
All my deeds cannot avail
But Christ endured the Father’s crushing
He bowed his head, as Mercy bled,
peace to prevail
He bowed his head, as Mercy bled,
peace to prevail

May Christ be all and I be nothing
His glory shines in vessels weak
May Christ be all and I be nothing
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me

Bring me low, my heart lower still
That your grace my pride relieves
May these words resound loud until
Every tribe and tongue believes

Bring me low, my heart lower still
That your grace my pride relieves
May these words resound loud until
Every tribe and tongue can sing

May Christ be all and I be nothing
His glory shines in vessels weak
May Christ be all and I be nothing
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me

On golden shores of sure salvation
I will run to meet my King
Freed from shame and all accusation
He’ll give Himself. Nothing I’ll bring
He’ll give Himself. Nothing I’ll bring

I Will Wait For You (Psalm 130)

Out of the depths I cry to You
In darkest places I will call
Incline Your ear to me anew
And hear my cry for mercy, Lord

Were you to count my sinful ways
How could I come before Your throne?
Yet, full forgiveness meets my gaze
I stand redeemed by grace alone

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
On Your word I will rely
I will wait for You, surely wait for You
Till my soul is satisfied

So, put your hope in God alone
Take courage in His pow’r to save
Completely and forever won
By Christ emerging from the grave

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
On Your word I will rely
I will wait for You, surely wait for You
Till my soul is satisfied

His steadfast love has made a way
And God Himself has paid the price
That all who trust in Him today
Find healing in His sacrifice

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
Through the storm and through the night

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
On Your word I will rely
I will wait for You, surely wait for You
Till my soul is satisfied

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
Through the storm and through the night
I will wait for You, surely wait for You
For Your love is my delight

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
Through the storm and through the night

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
On Your word I will rely
I will wait for You, surely wait for You
Till my soul is satisfied

I will wait for You, I will wait for You
On Your word I will rely
I will wait for You, surely wait for You
Till my soul is satisfied

Leaning On the Everlasting Arms

What a fellowship what a joy divine
Leaning on the everlasting arms
What a blessedness what a peace is mine
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning on the everlasting arms

O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way
Leaning on the everlasting arms
O how bright the path grows from day to day
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning on the everlasting arms

What have I to dread what have I to fear
Leaning on the everlasting arms
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning (leaning on Jesus)
Leaning on the everlasting arms
