Oh the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

We were unworthy, unfaithful, untrue
Infidels seeking our own
You came to seek and to save and pursue
Us with love like we had never known

Love that is holy and righteous and pure
Love that will forever be strong and sure
You opened our eyes
Called us to arise
This love never dies it will ever endure

Oh the deep, deep love – this alone will be enough
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Oh the deep deep love  here on earth as in heaven above
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus

Dead to the truth we were living a lie
Slaves of our selfish desire
You set us free to be all we can be
With passion that burns like a fire

Our hopes and dreams are now bound up in you
You are the light that shines and broke through
You are bone of our bone
We will know as we’re known
As we live move and be in the one who is true

Bridge
Christ to you we belong
So we lift up this song
All that for which we long
Never can separate from your love 

Oh the deep, deep love – this alone will be enough
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Oh the deep deep love  here on earth as in heaven above
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Oh the deep, deep love – this alone will be enough
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus
Oh the deep deep love  here on earth as in heaven above
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus

When We Pray


We will rise out of sorrow when we pray
We will  live in thanksgiving when we pray
Surely goodness and mercy follow all our days
We shall walk in the light when we pray

We’ll agree with the Father when we pray 
We will defeat the devil when we pray
Surely goodness and mercy follow all our days
We will rest in our Savior when we pray

Bridge 
Unless you bear us up we shall surely fall
Unless you give us wings we have no strength at all
When we pray we shall with eyes of faith’s reality
And our hearts will take flight as the truth sets us free

We will lift adoration when we pray
We shall kneel in confession when we pray
Surely goodness and mercy follow all our days
We will ask for provision when we pray

Overcomer

Lord align my heart with your heart
Remove anything that would keep us apart 
Make my heart tender as I surrender
Open my heart to its innermost part

As true service I seek, forge my affections
Into a heartfelt and humble connection
Take my motives I pray  And renew them today
Powered by your resurrection!

Overcomer you have overcome
It is finished, it is over and done
You accomplished what you came to do
To bear witness to what is True.
And we shall overcome when we trust in You!

To your likeness help us to conform
Renew our minds and we are transformed
Help us stand according to your plan
And from above we shall be reborn.

Overcomer you have overcome
It is finished, it is over and done
You accomplished what you came to do
To bear witness to what is True.
And we shall overcome when we trust in You!

Lift Up Your Heads


Lift up your heads, O you gates; 
Be lifted up, you ancient doors, 
That the King of glory may come in. 
For He shall reign forevermore

Who is this King of glory?  The LORD who is mighty and strong
Who is this King of glory?  His is the victory song!
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
Soon and very soon He comes!

One day you shall see the Son of Man
Riding the clouds on High
Lift up your heads and stand
For your redemption draweth nigh

Who is this King of glory?  The LORD who is mighty,and strong
Who is this King of glory?  His is the victory song!
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
Soon and very soon He comes!

To the Hills We will lift up our eyes 
We shelter ‘neath your wing
Now let our hearts arise
And worship our glorious King

Lord, are a shield around me,
You lift my head up high.
Lord you are my glory
Your Name we shall magnify!

Who is this King of glory?  The LORD who is mighty and strong
Who is this King of glory?  His is the victory song!
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
And the King of Glory shall come in
Soon and very soon He comes!

Living Proof

We hope in what we do not see
Trading feelings for the true
We reckon Your reality
We trust alone in You

No eye no ear, no heart
Has seen nor heard nor known
The glory which You shall impart
Though now our spirits groan
Let us gaze on what’s to come

The eternal weight of glory
Seems sometimes to be far off
But in our very present reality
Grace will always be enough

No eye no ear, no heart
Has seen nor heard nor known
The glory which You shall impart
Though now our spirits groan
Let us gaze on what’s to come

Adjust my life to the glorious truth
Transform my shortened sight
We trust your dying, living proof
As we walk in Your light

No eye no ear, no heart
Has seen nor heard nor known
The glory which You shall impart
Though now our spirits groan
Let us gaze on what’s to come

The Love of Jesus


The love of Jesus will constrain us
Through our most tumultuous test
His love will then sustain us
Through our trials and our stress
Our love for Him may waver
But He holds us ere secure
We shall rest within His favor
In love- beautiful and pure

For we are His and He is ours
Forevermore  to last
He will love in the future
As He’s loved us in the past
He will hold us , ever faithful
For His love’s forever true
What a treasure without measure
Springing forth each day anew

Oh the precious love of Jesus
Spirit help our love return
To the source that holds and frees us
Help us now-  this love to learn
Oh the precious love of Jesus
Our soul’s lover we embrace
There where mercy reigns eternal
Abiding in His love and grace

We can feel it, we can know it
As it flows within , without
As we seek to share and show it
It dispels our fear and doubt
For the holy love of Jesus
Takes us deeper, deeper still
To the state where He will keep us
Fore’er in His perfect will.

For we are His and He is ours
Forevermore  to last
He will love in the future
As He’s loved us in the past
He will hold us , ever faithful
For His love’s forever true
What a treasure without measure
Springing forth each day anew

King of Glory

When the Lord Jesus from heaven is revealed
With his mighty angels in their flaming fire
A sword of vengeance in His hand he shall wield
For he is both just as well as justifier.

We will see the glory of the sovereign King
Both in mercy and in justice he shall come
He gives mercy to His living offerings
And sure vengeance on those who reject the Son

We will see His glory and be undone at the sight
Lost in  perfect never ending sinless marveling
We ‘ll attain our destiny of joy in His light
The crucified and risen and returning Glorious King

When the Lord Jesus from heaven is revealed
With his mighty angels in their  flaming fire
When the final judgment scroll shall be unsealed
He Himself shall be our great and true desire

Bridge
We shall marvel in such a way that He will be 
Glorified in His saints for all the world to see…
Oh He will attain his glorious destiny
The King of Glory shall return to claim His victory.

Who is this King of Glory?
The Lord of Hosts is His name
Who is this King of Glory?
This One who is from age to age the same!

We will see His glory and be undone at the sight
Lost in  perfect never ending sinless marveling
We ‘ll attain our destiny of joy in His light
The crucified and risen and returning Glorious King

2 Thessalonians 1:7–10
