Track Name: Man of Sorrows
Man of Sorrows what a name
For the Son of God, Who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim
Hallelujah, o what a Savior

Bearing shame and scoffing rude
In my place condemned He stood
Sealed my pardon with His blood
Hallelujah, o what a Savior

Guilty, vile, and helpless we
Spotless Lamb of God was He
Full atonement! Can it be?
Hallelujah, o what a Savior

Lifted up was He to die; “It is finished” was His cry
Now in heaven exalted high, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

When He comes, our glorious King
All His ransomed home to bring
Then a new song we will sing
Hallelujah, o what a Savior
Track Name: All Creatures of Our God and King
All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
O praise Him, alleluia
Thou burning sun with golden beam
Thou silver moon with softer gleam
O praise Him, O praise Him, alleluia

Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in heaven along
O praise Him, alleluia
Thou rising morn in praise rejoice
Ye lights of evening find a voice
O praise Him, O praise Him, alleluia

Let all things their Creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness
O praise Him alleluia
Thou burning sun with golden beam
Thou silver moon with softer gleam
O praise Him, O praise Him, alleluia

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly host
Praise Father Son and Holy Ghost
Track Name: You Are the One
You breathe and galaxies form out of nothing
Mountains appear with one word
From the highest of highs to the smallest of smalls
You made it and called it all good

You are the One who put stars in the heavens
You are the one who knows them (me) by name
You are the One who came down to save us
O God You are so great You are the One

All the creatures of earth and the angels of heaven
Are joined in a chorus of praise
From the shout of the thunder to the whisper of wind
It all has a voice to proclaim

My life is no more than a grain in the desert
A drop in the mightiest sea
So I amazed every time I remember
That God full of splendor
Became man and died for me
Track Name: Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages, cleft for me
let me hide myself in thee
let the water and the blood
from thy wounded side which flowed
be of sin the double cure
save from wrath and make me pure

Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law's commands
could my zeal no respite know
could my tears forever flow
all for sin could not atone
thou must save, and thou alone

Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to the cross I cling
Fowl I to the fountain fly
Wash me Savior or I die

While I draw this fleeting breath
when mine eyes shall close in death
when I soar to worlds unknown
see thee on thy judgment throne
Rock of Ages, cleft for me
let me hide myself in thee.
Track Name: Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Come Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in Thee
Israels strength and consolation
Hope of all the earth Thou art
Dear Desire of every nation
Joy of every longing heart

Born Thy people to deliver
Born a child and yet a King
Born to reign in us forever
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring
By Thy own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By Thine all sufficient merit
Raise to us Thy glorious throne

Hail the King, Son of God
Spotless lamb, the Holy One
Crucified to save all His daughters and sons
Jesus Christ, Victorious One
Track Name: There Is a Fountain
There is a fountain filled with blood
Flowing from Emmanuel’s veins
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains

The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day
And there have I, though vile as he
Washed all my sins away

Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its power
‘Till all the ransomed church of God
Be saved, to sin no more

And since, by faith, I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply
Redeeming love has been my theme
And shall be till I die
Track Name: The Greatness of His Mercy
When in Jesus we believe
And His pardon we receive
What a comfort to the soul the promise brings
That the weary and oppressed
When they come to Him for rest
He will cover with the shadow of His wings

O Sing the greatness of His mercy
Sing the beauty of His grace
Sing while angels join the chorus
Lifting up an endless praise

When in Jesus we abide
And by faith are justified
We have peace with God the Father
Through His Name
And the joy that fills the heart
Though its earthly hopes depart
Through His all atoning merit we may claim

To the King most glorified
As we sing be magnified

When in Jesus we are one
We can say His will be done
We can trust Him where perhaps we cannot trace
For he keeps us by His power
Every moment every hour
And we feel the sweet refreshing of His grace
Track Name: Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah
Guide me O Thou great Jehovah
Pilgrim through this barren land
I am weak but Thou art mighty
Hold me with Thy powerful hand
Bread of Heaven Bread of Heaven
Feed me till I want no more

Open now the crystal fountain
Whence the healing stream doth flow
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me on my journey home
Strong Deliverer strong Deliverer
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield

Thinking about this tired creation
Thinking about my heavenly home
Fills my soul with holy longings
Come, my Jesus, quickly come

When I tread the verge of Jordan
Bid my anxious fears subside
Death of deaths and hell's destruction
Land me safe on Canaan's side
Songs of praises, songs of praises
I will ever give to Thee
Track Name: Lord You Are a Shield
When the enemy was all that I could see
I cried out to the Lord, He heard my voice
And He rescued me, His grace has set me free
What a Savior what a God

Lord You are a shield about me
You’re my glory the lifter of my head
Lord You are the one who saves me
You’re my glory the lifter of my head

I was dead within surrounded by my sin
I cried out to the Lord, He heard my voice
And at Calvary, He beat death and set me free
What a Savior what a God

Arise O Lord for salvation is Yours
Only You can save us
Arise O Lord for salvation is Yours
By Your death You raised us
Only you can save us
Track Name: Be Thou My Vision
Be Thou my vision O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping Thy presence my light

Be Thou my Wisdom and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father, and I thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

Riches I heed not nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine inheritance now and always
and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of heaven my Treasure Thou art

High King of heaven my victory won
May I reach heavens joy, O bright heavens Son
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, O ruler of all
