Wonder - Lyrics

Wonder

Have you ever seen the wonder
In the glimmer of first sight
As the eyes begin to open
And the blindness meets the light
If you have so say

I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living color
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

Have you ever seen the wonder
In the air of second life
Having come out of the waters
With the old one left behind
If you have so say

I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living color
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

(Ooh I say) I see the world in grace
I see the world in gospel
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

I’m walking in the wonder
You’re the wonder in the wild
Turning wilderness to wonder

(Ooh I say) I see the world in love
I see the world in freedom
I see the Jesus way
You’re the wonder in the wild

I see the world Your way
And I’m not afraid to follow
I see the world Your way
And I’m not ashamed to say so
I see the Jesus way
And I’m walking in the light

I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living color
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

Ooh, I say, I see the world in grace
I see the world in gospel
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light
I’m walking in the wonder
You’re the wonder in the wild
Turning wilderness to wonder

(Ooh I say) I see the world in love
I see the world in freedom
I see the Jesus way
You’re the wonder in the wild

Turning wilderness to wonder
You’re the wonder in the wild
Turning wilderness to wonder

Your Love Awakens Me - Lyrics

Your Love Awakens Me

There were walls between us
By the cross you came and
broke them down – You broke them down

There were chains around us
By Your grace we are no longer bound
No longer bound

You called me out of the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name and then
my heart came alive

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

Feel the darkness shaking
All the dead are coming
Back to life – Back to life
Hear the song awaken
All creation singing
We’re alive – ‘Cause You’re alive

You called me out of the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name and then
my heart came alive

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

And what a love we found
Death can’t hold us down
We shout it out
We’re alive ’cause you’re alive
(Repeat 3x)

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens – awakens
Awakens me

The Kingdom is Yours - Lyrics

The Kingdom is Yours

Blessed are the ones who do not bury
All the broken pieces of their heart
Blessed are the tears of all the weary
Pouring like a sky of falling stars

Blessed are the wounded ones in mourning
Brave enough to show the Lord their scars
Blessed are the hurts that are not hidden
Open to the healing touch of God

The Kingdom is yours
The Kingdom is yours
Hold on a little more, this is not the end
Hope is in the Lord
Keep your eyes on Him

Blessed are the ones who walk in kindness
Even in the face of great abuse
Blessed are the deeds that go unnoticed
Serving with unguarded gratitude

Blessed are the ones who fight for justice
Longing for the coming day of peace
Blessed is the soul
that thirsts for righteousness
Welcoming the last, the lost, the least

The Kingdom is yours
The Kingdom is yours
Hold on a little more, this is not the end
Hope is in the Lord
Keep your eyes on Him

The Kingdom is yours
The Kingdom is yours
Hold on a little more, this is not the end
Hope is in the Lord
Keep your eyes on Him

Blessed are the ones who suffer violence
And still have strength to love their enemies
Blessed is the faith of those who persevere
Though they fall, they’ll never know defeat

The Kingdom is yours
The Kingdom is yours
Hold on a little more, this is not the end
Hope is in the Lord
Keep your eyes on Him

The Kingdom is yours
The Kingdom is yours
Hold on a little more, this is not the end
Hope is in the Lord
Keep your eyes on Him

You Are Love & Love Alone - Lyrics

You Are Love & Love Alone

God and Father, great and holy
Fearing not, we come to Thee
Fearing not, though weak lowly
For Your love has set us free

And by the blue sky bending over
By the green earth’s flowery home
Teach us Lord the angel chorus
You are Love and love alone

You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are

Though the worlds in flame should perish
Sun and stars in ruin fall
Trust in Thee our hearts should cherish
Oh Lord be our all in all

With Your name the heavens praising
Angels hymn no sweeter tone
Than the songs our hearts are raising
You are Love and love alone

You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are

You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are

How perfectly our hearts
are made for love
(repeat 3x)

You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are

You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are Love and love alone
You are

Scripture Reading - 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 Corinthians

1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

At The Table - Lyrics

At The Table

I went the ways of wayward winds
In a world of trouble and sin
Walked a long and crooked mile
Behind a million rank and file
Forgot where I came from
Somewhere back when I was young
I was a good man’s child

‘Cause I lost some nameless things
My innocence flew away from me
She had to hide her face from my desire
To embrace forbidden fire
But at night I dream
She’s singing over me
Oh, oh, my child

Come on home, home to me
And I will hold you in my arms
And joyful be

There will always, always be
A place for you at my table
Return to me

Wondering where I might begin
Hear a voice upon the wind
She’s singing faint but singing true
“Son, there ain’t nothing you can do
But listen close and follow me
I’ll take you where you’re meant to be
Just don’t lose faith”

So I put my hand upon the plow
Wipe the sweat up from my brow
Plant the good seed along the way
As I look forward to the day
When at last I see
My Father run to me
Singing “oh, my child”

Come on home, home to me
And I will hold you in my arms
And joyful be

There will always, always be
A place for you at my table
Return to me

Come on home, home to me
And I will hold you in my arms
And joyful be

There will always, always be
A place for you at my table
A place for you at my table
A place for you at my table
Return to me

How Great Thou Art - Lyrics

ow Great Thou Art

O Lord my God when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul
my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
(repeat)

And when I think of God His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

Then sings my soul
my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
(repeat)

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And lead me home what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow with humble adoration
And then proclaim “My God, how great Thou art!”

Then sings my soul
my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
(repeat)

How great Thou art
How great Thou art
