The Love of the Father

Lift up your voices and lift up your praise

Join with the heavens declaring

The wonders of His faithfulness

Forever

Sing of the victory the hope of the world

The Saviour has risen

The Spirit has come to bring us into love

Forever

Oh we are the people of God

With the freedom of hope in our hearts

How great is the love of the Father

Lifted from darkness and into the light

The sons and the daughters

are loved at a price

Our God has made us His

Forever

Oh we are the people of God

With the freedom of hope in our hearts

How great is the love of the Father

(repeat)

This is the song of the redeemed

The ransomed and the free

Given life at such a price

This is love this is love

And when the Father calls us home

And we see Him on the throne

Hear the voices sing as one

This is love this is love

Oh we are the people of God

With the freedom of hope in our hearts

How great is the love of the Father

(repeat)

How Deep the Father’s Love

How deep the Father’s love for us,

How vast beyond all measure,

That He should give His only Son

To make a wretch His treasure.

How great the pain of searing loss,

The Father turns His face away,

As wounds which mar the

Chosen One

Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the man upon a cross,

My sin upon His shoulders;

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice

Call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there

Until it was accomplished;

His dying breath has brought me life

I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything,

No gifts, no power, no wisdom;

But I will boast in Jesus Christ,

His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward?

I cannot give an answer,

But this I know with all my heart,

His wounds have paid my ransom.

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

Thou and Thou only, the first in my heart

High King of heaven,

my Treasure Thou art

O God be my everything

Be my delight

Be Jesus my glory

My soul satisfied

(x 2)

High King of heaven my victory won

May I reach heaven’s joys,

O bright heaven’s Sun!

Heart of my own heart,

whatever befall

Still be my Vision, O ruler of all

O God be my everything

Be my delight

Be Jesus my glory

My soul satisfied

(x 2)
