Track Name: Joy complete (1 John 1)
1 John 1:1-7

That which was there from the start
Heard, and seen with our eyes
Touched, and arrested our heart:
The Word of life

We've seen Him and testify
Proclaim this eternal life
Fellowship with the Father
And Son, Jesus Christ

This we declare
God is light
We join with Him there
Our joy is complete

If we are walking in dark
We lie and don't live out the truth
But if we will walk in the light
We're purified

This we declare
God is light
We join with Him there
Our joy is complete

Joy is complete
Track Name: Righteousness looks down (Psalm 85)
Restore us again O God of our salvation
And put away all your indignation
Will you be angry forever?
Prolonging to all generations?

Will you not revive us again
May your people rejoice
Show your steadfast love
Will you not revive us again
May your people rejoice
And grant us salvation

Steadfast love and faithfulness meet
The kiss of righteousness and peace
Faithfulness springs from the ground
From the sky, righteousness looks down
Track Name: The world is passing away (1 John 2)
Beloved, I am writing you
No commandment that is new
But an old commandment that you had
From the beginning

The old commandment is the word
The word that you have heard
At the same time it is new
True in him and in you

The darkness is passing away
The true light is already shining
The darkness is passing away
The true light is already shining

Do not love the temporal
All the things in the world
Desires of flesh, desires of eyes
The worldly pride of our lives

The world is passing away
The true light is already shining
The world is passing away
Whoever does the will of God lives on
Track Name: You are all I need (Psalm 51)
Have mercy Lord
According to Your love
From iniquity
Will You wash me?

You are all I need
You are all I need
Let Your mercy fall on me
Let Your mercy cover me
You are all I need
You are all I need
Let Your mercy fall on me
Let Your mercy fall

According to your great compassion
Blot out all of my transgression
Wash away iniquity
From my sin, O Lord, cleanse me
Track Name: See the love (1 John 3)
See the love the Father gives
That we should be his children
Beloved, this is who we are
And what we'll be is hidden

But we know when he appears
That we shall be like him
We shall see him as he is
And we'll put our hope in him

By this we know love: His life was given
We should give our lives for all his children
Let us not just love in word or speaking
But in deed and truth, his love revealing

By this we'll know we're of the truth
And reassure our heart before
For whenever our heart condemns
We know he's greater and knows all

By this we know love: His life was given
We should give our lives for all his children
Let us not just love in word or speaking
But in deed and truth, his love revealing

This is his command: Believe in Jesus
And love fellow man, do what pleases
God abides in us and we abide
By the Spirit given, love will reside
Track Name: Who shall separate us? (Romans 8)
Romans 8:31-39

V1
Who shall separate us
From the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or distress
Danger or the sword?
No, in all of these things
We're more than conquerors
Through Him who has loved us
The One our heart adores

V2
For I am fully convinced
That neither death nor life
Nor anything in the world
Will take us from his love
No, in all of these things
We're more than conquerors
Through Him who has loved us
The One our heart adores

V3
He did not spare His own Son
But gave Him up for us all
How will He not also with Him
Graciously give us all?
So, in all of these things
We're more than conquerors
And nothing can separate us
From the love of God
Track Name: We should love (1 John 4)
Beloved, let us love one another
For love is from God
Whoever loves is born of the Father
For God is love

Pre-Chorus:
In this love was shown to us
Not that we loved but He loved us

Chorus:
If God so loved us we should love one another
Whoever loves God must so love his brother

God has sent his Son to be Saviour
When we were enemies
Beloved, so let all our behaviour
Show his love and charity

Pre-Chorus

Chorus:
If God so loved us we should love one another
Whoever loves God must so love his brother
How can we claim to truly know the Father
If we don't have this, this same love for each other?
Track Name: Loved with everlasting love
Loved with everlasting love,
Led by grace that love to know;
Spirit, breathing from above,
Thou hast taught me it is so.
Oh, this full and perfect peace!
Oh, this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease,
I am His, and He is mine.

Heaven above is softer blue,
Earth around is sweeter green;
Something lives in every hue
Christless eyes have never seen:
Birds with gladder songs o’erflow,
Flow’rs with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know,
I am His, and He is mine.

Oh this full and perfect peace
In a love which cannot cease

His forever, only His:
Who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss
Christ can fill the loving heart.
Heaven and earth may fade and flee,
Firstborn light in gloom decline;
But, while God and I shall be,
I am His, and He is mine.

Oh, this full and perfect peace!
Oh, this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease,
I am His, and He is mine.
Track Name: We are the ones who believe (1 John 5)
His commandments are not burdensome
For His children overcome
Our faith is the victory
We are the ones who believe

Spirit and water testify
And the blood of Jesus Christ
These three all agree
We are the ones who believe

Chorus:
We know whom we are from
And the world is in the power of the evil one
And we know that the Son of God has come
And we have overcome
With Him, overcome

We don't continue in our sin
He keeps us safe, secure in Him
We are His children, we are free
We are the ones who believe

(Chorus)

We are the ones who believe
Track Name: Doxology (Ephesians 3)
May he strengthen you
From his glorious riches
That Christ may dwell in you
With power through his Spirit

Be set in love

That you may have power
Together with the saints
To grasp the greatness of his love
Be filled with all his fullness

Be set in love

Now to him
Who can do all things
More than our imaginings
Be all the glory
