My Least Favorite Verses – Part Five – Leave Your Gift at the Altar

Ain't No Grave - Lyrics

Ain’t No Grave

Oh shame is a prison as cruel as a grave
Shame is a robber
and he’s come to take my name

Oh love is my redeemer
Lifting me up from the ground
Love is the power
where my freedom song is found

Oh shame is a prison as cruel as a grave
Shame is a robber
and he’s come to take my name

Oh love is my redeemer
Lifting me up from the ground
Love is the power
where my freedom song is found

There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I’m gonna rise up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

Oh fear is a liar
with a smooth and velvet tongue
Fear is a tyrant
he’s always telling me to run

Oh love is a resurrection
and love is a trumpet sound
Love is my weapon
I’m gonna take my giants down

There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I’m gonna rise up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

Oh there was a battle
a war between death and life
And there on a tree
the Lamb of God was crucified

And He went on down to hell
He took back every key
He rose up as a lion
and He’s settin’ all captives free

There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down
There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down

When He heard the trumpet sound
He rose up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down

There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down
(repeat)

If You walked out of the grave
I’m walking too
(repeat)

There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I’m gonna rise up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

I Surrender All - Lyrics

I Surrender All

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live

I surrender all, I surrender all
All to Thee, my blessed Savior
I surrender all

All to Jesus I surrender
Humbly at His feet I bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me Jesus, take me now

I surrender all, I surrender all
All to thee, my blessed Savior
I surrender all

All to Jesus I surrender
Lord, I give myself to Thee
So fill me with Thy love and power
Let Thy blessing fall on me

I surrender all, I surrender all
All to thee, my blessed Savior
I surrender all

Oh, I surrender all, I surrender all
All to thee, my blessed Savior
I surrender all

What a Beautiful Name - Lyrics

What a Beautiful Name

You were the Word at the beginning
One With God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus, You brought heaven down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now

What a wonderful Name it is
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a wonderful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Death could not hold You
the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring
the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again

Death could not hold You
the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring
the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again

You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever God You reign
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name above all names

What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever God You reign
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Jesus We Love You - Lyrics

Jesus We Love You

Jesus we love you
Oh how we love you
You are the one our
our hearts adore
(repeat)

Old things have passed away
Your love has stayed the same
Your constant grace remains
the cornerstone

Things that we thought were dead
Are breathing in life again
’cause You cause your Son to
shine on darkest nights

For all that you’ve done
we will pour out our love
This will be our anthem song

Jesus we love you
Oh how we love you
You are the one our
our hearts adore

The hopeless have found their hope
The orphans now have a home
All that was lost has
found its place in you

You lift our weary head
You make us strong instead
You took these rags and
made us beautiful

For all that you’ve done
we will pour out our love
This will be our anthem song

Jesus we love you
Oh how we love you
You are the one our
our hearts adore
(repeat)

Our hearts adore
Our hearts adore
Our hearts adore

Our affection, our devotion
Poured out on the feet of Jesus
Our affection, our devotion
Poured out on the feet of Jesus
(repeat)

Jesus we love you
Oh how we love you
You are the one our
our hearts adore
(repeat)

Our hearts adore
Our hearts adore
Our hearts adore

Scripture Reading

Matthew 5:21:24

21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.

23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

Matthew 18:15-17

15 “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.

If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.


1 John 4:20
20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.

Build My Life - Lyrics

Build My Life

Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath
we could ever breathe
We live for you

Jesus the name above every other name
Jesus the only one who could save
Worthy of every breath
we could ever breathe
We live for you – Oh we live for you

Holy there is no one like you
There is none beside you
Open up my eyes in wonder and
Show me who you are and
Fill me with your heart and
Lead me in Your love to those around me

Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath
we could ever breathe
We live for you

Jesus the name above every other name
Jesus the only one who could save
Worthy of every breath
we could ever breathe
We live for you – Oh we live for you

Holy there is no one like you
There is none beside you
Open up my eyes in wonder and
Show me who you are and
Fill me with your heart and
Lead me in Your love to those around me

Holy there is no one like you
There is none beside you
Open up my eyes in wonder and
Show me who you are and
Fill me with your heart and
Lead me in Your love to those around me

And I will build my life upon your
love it is a firm foundation
And I will put my trust in you
alone and I will not be shaken
(Repeat)

Holy there is no one like you
There is none beside you
Open up my eyes in wonder and
Show me who you are and
Fill me with your heart and
Lead me in Your love to those around me

Death in his Grave- Lyrics

Death in his Grave

Though the earth cried out for blood
Satisfied her hunger was
Billows calmed on raging seas
For the souls of men she craved

Sun and moon from balcony
Turned their head in disbelief
Precious love would taste the sting
Disfigured and disdained

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys

Of hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave

So three days in darkness slept
The morning sun of righteousness
But rose to shame the throes of death
And overturn his rule

Now daughters and the sons of men
Would pay not their dues again
The debt of blood they owed was rent
When the day rolled anew

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys

Of hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave

He has cheated
hell and seated
us above the fall
In desperate places
he paid our wages
One time, once and for all

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys

Of hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave

The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave
