Track Name: God eternal
God eternal
God immortal
High, supernal
Loving, humble

God all mighty
Judges rightly
Just and holy
Suffered for me

King of ages
Never changes
Humanity he
Now embraces

Loving, kind
Loving, kind
Gave His life freely

God eternal
God immortal
From invisible
Track Name: Lo, He comes with clouds descending
Lo! He comes with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of His train:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God appears on earth to reign.

Every eye shall now behold Him
Robed in dreadful majesty;
Those who set at naught and sold Him,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

The dear tokens of His passion
Still His dazzling body bears;
Cause of endless exultation
To His ransomed worshippers;
With what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture
Gaze we on those glorious scars!

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own;
O come quickly! O come quickly! O come quickly!
Everlasting God, come down!
Track Name: Let us worship
The king is born in a lowly stable
Exchanging His crown for a cross
Born into the world He created
Living with those who are lost

Who could think that this helpless baby
Would soon take the weight of our sin?
But He lives, He has risen and conquered
Come let us glorify Him

Come let us worship
Come let us worship
Come let us worship Him

Strangers came with their costly oblations
Worshipping Him as they gave
So let us give our lives as an off'ring
To Him who has lavished His grace


By this we now know love
That He came from above
Laid down His life for us
Come let us worship Him
We lay down our lives
Not to pay the price
But out of love for Christ
Come let us worship Him


Come let us worship Him
Let us worship Him
Let us worship Him
Track Name: The hope of glory
Colossians 1:26-27; Colossians 2; Ephesians 2

Christ, the One in whom is hidden
All the treasures of God's wisdom
Now, the mystery long hidden
In Him has been revealed

We were dead in our transgression
Enemies in alienation
Christ, our reconciliation,
Has died and brought us near

In our lives, forever be
Christ in us, the hope of glory
That the world may see
The riches of this mystery

Gone, our debt that stood against us
Gone, the wall that separates us
All the law that would condemn us
Has gone, nailed to the cross


We with unveiled face beholding
In His image, now transforming
In this world, and not conforming
In our lives be glorified


The hope of glory
The hope of glory
With Christ before me
The hope of glory
Track Name: Christ lives in us
Romans 5

Hope does not put us to shame
Into our hearts God's love is poured
Through the Spirit, freely given
Through His Son, peace is restored

Chorus 1:
Justified us by His blood
Saved us from the wrath of God
Reconciled through costly love
Christ died for us

Rarely would one die for the righteous
Maybe die for one good soul
But God shows His great love for us:
While we were sinners, Christ died for all

Chorus 2:
Justified us by His blood
Saved us from the wrath of God
Reconciled through costly love
Christ died for us
All through righteousness in faith
Reigns abundant, generous grace
Eternal life, eternal praise
Christ lives in us

(Chorus 2)
Track Name: Shadow
Hebrews 10, Colossians 2

The law has but a shadow
Of good things yet to be
Instead of the true form
Of these realities

The same sacrifices
Offered every year
They cannot make perfect
Those who would draw near

By His will we're sanctified
Through the offering
Of the life of Jesus Christ
Once for all, we sing:

All these things are but a shadow
These things are but a shadow
The substance belongs to Christ

The priest stands at his service
Repeating sacrifice
But Christ has given for all time
His perfect, spotless life



Since we now have confidence
To enter in to the holy place
By the new and living way
Through the flesh and blood of Jesus
Our bodies washed with water pure
Hearts are cleansed from evil conscience
Let us all draw close to Him
With true heart and full assurance....

(Chorus) x2

We have a great priest
Track Name: Highest
Hebrews 1:3, Luke 2

Verse 1:
Glory to our God on high
Peace to all His people
A blazing fire in darkest night
Light the way of salvation

Verse 2:
Glory to our God on high
Peace to all His people
Crucified and glorified
For every sinful nation

Lifted high
Became a curse for our salvation
Crucified and glorified
Be lifted high
Exalted at the Father's side
The Radiance, be glorified

Verse 3: (Hebrews 10:12,13)
But when Christ had offered up
For all time, a sacrifice
He sat down at God's right hand
Made us perfect forever


Let your glory be over all the earth
glory be over all the earth

Track Name: Return, O my soul, to your rest
Psalm 116

Verse 1:
I love the Lord
For He has listened
Heard my voice
My pleas for mercy
Therefore I will call on Him
As long as I live

Verse 2:
The snares of death
Had encompassed
The pangs of Sheol
Had laid hold
I called on His name
"Deliver my soul"

So return, O my soul,
Yes return, O my soul, to your rest

Verse 3:
Deliver'd my soul
From death
My eyes from tears
My feet from stumbling
So I will walk before the Lord
In the land of the living
So I will walk before the Lord
In the land of the living
