Song Lyrics for May 10th

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Verse 1

A mighty fortress is our God

A bulwark never failing

Our helper He amid the flood

Of mortal ills prevailing

For still our ancient foe

Doth seek to work us woe

His craft and pow'r are great

And armed with cruel hate

On earth is not his equal


Verse 2

Did we in our own strength confide

Our striving would be losing

Were not the right Man on our side

The Man of God's own choosing

Dost ask who that may be

Christ Jesus it is He

Lord Sabaoth His name

From age to age the same

And He must win the battle


The Solid Rock

Verse 1

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus' blood and righteousness

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly lean on Jesus' name


Chorus

On Christ the solid Rock I stand

All other ground is sinking sand

All other ground is sinking sand


Verse 2

When darkness veils His lovely face

I rest on His unchanging grace

In ev'ry high and stormy gale

My anchor holds within the veil



Victory In Jesus

Verse 1

I heard an old old story

How a Savior came from glory

How He gave His life on Calvary

To save a wretch like me

I heard about His groaning

Of His precious blood's atoning

Then I repented of my sins

And won the victory


Chorus

O victory in Jesus

My Savior forever

He sought me and bought me

With His redeeming blood

He loved me ere I knew Him

And all my love is due Him

He plunged me to victory

Beneath the cleansing flood


Verse 2

I heard about His healing

Of His cleansing pow'r revealing

How He made the lame to walk again

And caused the blind to see

And then I cried dear Jesus

Come and heal my broken spirit

And somehow Jesus came and brought

To me the victory


Verse 3

I heard about a mansion

He has built for me in glory

And I heard about the streets of gold

Beyond the crystal sea

About the angels singing

And the old redemption story

And some sweet day I'll sing up there

The song of victory


Beneath The Cross

Verse 1

Beneath the cross of Jesus

I fain would take  take my stand

The shadow of a mighty rock

Within a weary land

A home within the wilderness

 A rest upon the way 

From the burning of the noon-tide heat 

 And the burden of the day


Verse 2

I Take O Cross thy shadow

For my abiding place

I ask no other sunshine than

The sunshine of His face

Content to let the world go by

To know no gain or loss

This sinful self my only shame

My glory all the  cross

 

  

When I Survey The Wondrous Cross  

Verse 1

When I survey the wondrous cross

On which the Prince of glory died

My richest gain I count but loss

And pour contempt on all my pride


Verse 2

Forbid it Lord that I should boast

Save in the death of Christ my God

All the vain things that charm me most

I sacrifice them to His blood


Verse 3

See from His head His hands His feet

Sorrow and love flow mingled down

Did ever such love and sorrow meet

Or thorns compose so rich a crown


Verse 4

Were the whole realm of nature mine

That were a present far too small

Love so amazing so divine

Demands my soul my life my all

 

 

In Christ Alone

Verse 1

In Christ alone my hope is found

He is my light my strength my song

This Cornerstone this solid Ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love what depths of peace

When fears are stilled when strivings cease

My Comforter my All in All

Here in the love of Christ I stand


Verse 2

In Christ alone who took on flesh

Fullness of God in helpless babe

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones He came to save

Till on that cross as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin on Him was laid

Here in the death of Christ I live


Verse 3

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious Day

Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory

Sin's curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His and He is mine

Bought with the precious blood of Christ


Verse 4

No guilt in life no fear in death

This is the power of Christ in me

From life's first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

Till He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
