Track Name: No-one is greater (Psalm 99)
No-one is higher
No name is greater
Nothing is stronger
Than our God
No-one can break us
Nothing can take us
Nor separate us
From His love

Verse 1:
The Lord reigns; let all the peoples tremble
He sits enthroned, let the earth shake
For ever, the Lord is great in Zion
He is exalted, over nations
Let them praise your great and glorious name


Verse 2:
The King in his might loves justice
He has established equity
The Lord, our Sovereign God, is holy
Forgiving us eternally
Let them praise your great and glorious name


No-one is greater than our God
No-one is stronger than our God
Nothing is greater than His love, than His love
Track Name: Through and through (2 Timothy 1)
Not because of works
But all because of grace
That we were giv'n in Jesus
Before all time and space

Death has been abolished
Life and light appear
Through our Saviour's dawning
His kindness draws us near

God alone is faithful
God alone is true
Grace alone has saved us
Not by what we do

We are not ashamed
We know Whom we've believed
He alone will keep us
And guard what we've received

God alone is faithful
God alone is true
Grace alone has saved us
Not by what we do
God alone is faithful
God alone is true
God alone has saved us
Through and through

For God did not give us a spirit of fear,
But of love, power, self-control

Track Name: Psalm 46
God is our strength
And our shelter
Though waters foam
We won't falter
He helps us all
In our trouble
We will not fear
Though mountains tremble

There's a river
That makes God's city glad
God dwells in her
She shall not be moved
We shall not be moved

The nations fight and rage
Kingdoms totter
The earth melts away
His voice utters
The Lord of hosts is here
He's our fortress
Behold his mighty works
He is with us


Be still and know that He is God
Still and know that He is
Track Name: Awake (Psalm 57)
Have mercy on me, my God
Have mercy on me
I shelter under the shadow of your wings
I cry out to you, my God
Who vindicates me
Sends from heaven His love and faithfulness

My chaos is in your control
Come awake, awake my soul
Brokenness will be made whole
Come awake, awake my soul

My heart, O God, is steadfast
My heart is sure
I will sing and make music to your name
I will praise you, O Lord
Among the peoples
For great is your love and faithfulness

Be exalted, O God,
above all of the heavens;
and let your glory shine
over all of the earth.
Track Name: God is love
Words: Timothy Rees (1874-1939)

God is love: let heaven adore him;
God is love: let earth rejoice;
Let creation sing before him,
And exalt him with one voice.
He who laid the earth's foundation,
He who spread the heavens above,
He who breathes through all creation,
He is love, eternal love.

God is love, and is enfolding
All the world in one embrace;
His unfailing grasp is holding
Every child of every race;
And when human hearts are breaking
Under sorrow's iron rod,
That same sorrow, that same aching
Wrings with pain the heart of God,

God is love: and though with blindness
Sin afflicts and clouds the will,
God's eternal loving-kindness
Holds us fast and guides us still.
Sin and death and hell shall never
O'er us final triumph gain;
God is love, so love for ever
O'er the universe must reign.
Track Name: The wondrous story
Words: Fran­cis H. Row­ley, 1886

I will sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me,
How he left his home in glory
For the cross on Calvary.
I was lost but Jesus found me
Found the sheep that went astray,
Threw his loving arms around me
Drew me back into his way.

I was bruised: but Jesus healed me,
Faint was I from many a fall,
Sight was gone and fears possessed me
But he freed me from them all.
Days of darkness still come o’er me,
Sorrow's paths I often tread;
But the Saviour still is with me,
By his hand I'm safely led.

He will keep me till the river
Rolls its waters at my feet:
Then he'll bear me safely over,
All my joys in him complete.
Yes, I'll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me,
Sing it with his saints in glory,
Gathered by the crystal sea.
Track Name: A slave to righteousness, and free
Romans 6

If I say I've died to sin
How can I keep in it any longer?
If I have been raised with Him
I live a life much stronger

Just as Christ was raised from death
Through the glory of the Father
So I now am raised to life
And free to serve my Master

I'm free, I'm free
Not by works, but Christ in me
I'm free, free indeed
A slave to righteousness, and free

I was once a slave to sin
Reaping only what was death
Now I am a slave to Him
And now have life and wholeness

(Chorus) x2

Just as Christ was raised from death
Through the glory of the Father
So I now am raised to life
And free to serve my Master
Track Name: Love endures (1 Corinthians 13)
If I speak in tongues of men and of angels
But have not love, I am a noisy, crashing gong
If I have wise powers and understand all mysteries
But have not love, I have known nothing all along

Love is patient, love is kind
It does not envy, nor boast with pride
It is not selfish and is not rude
But rejoices with the truth

Faith and hope remain
But the greatest of them all is love
Love will sustain
And the greatest of them all is love

If I have all faith and move many mountains
But have not love, I am nothing at all
If I give away all of my possessions
But have not love, I have nothing at all

Love bears all things,
Believes all things,
Hopes all things,
Endures all things.
Track Name: Let us not grow tired
Galatians 6, Hebrews 12

Let us not grow tired
Tired of doing good
For we will be soon reaping
So then don't give up
Do good to everyone
In this way, the law be keeping

So lay aside each weight
And freely run the race

Our Saviour, He endured
Endured the cross and shame
From us sinners bore hostility
Still consider Him
Who now perfects our faith
So that we won't grow weary

So lay aside each weight
And freely run the race
Track Name: The first nowell
The first Nowell the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields as they lay keeping their sheep,
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.

They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the east beyond them far,
And to the earth it gave great light,
And so it continued both day and night.

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, born is the King of Israel.

This star drew nigh to the northwest,
O'er Bethlehem it took its rest,
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Then entered in those wise men three,
Full reverently upon their knee,
And offered there in his presence
Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.


Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord;
That hath made heaven and earth of nought,
And with his blood mankind hath bought.

Track Name: This is the gift of God
Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 5

Not on our own strength and wisdom
Not by our good deeds before Him
All we could bring is our own sin
But by his grace

This is the gift
Of our great God
A gift, and not by works
So we are left
With no other boast
Than in the cross

Not under law that enslaves us
Now under grace that will save us
Freedom to be slaves to righteousness
And reign in life


All through the cross
All because of love
He redeems us all
And justifies us freely
This is the gift of God

This is the gift of God
This is the gift of God
