The Battle is the Lord’s

The battle is the Lord’s

And He must have the victory

I surrender to the victor

The King of all glory


He has overcome

The world and all my sin

It is over and it’s done

So the war is mine to win


So I surrender to the Captain

Who is a warrior King

The Battle is The Lord’s

Of His victory we sing!


We war not with mere flesh and blood

But against principalities, 

Against powers,  and dominions

And rulers of the darkness we cannot see


We war against spiritual forces 

Of evil in the heavenly places

And victory is surely ours

As we lift our voice in praises!


The enemy has seen defeat

Death and darkness now have died

His purpose is complete

And He won’t be denied


The battle is the Lord’s

And He must have the victory

I surrender to the victor

The King of all glory


So I surrender to the Captain

Who is a warrior King

The Battle is The Lord’s

Of His victory we sing!


Ephesians 6:12; 1 Samuel 17: 47

Good News



There is good news, good news for the sinner

Whether you are a loser or you think You’re a winner

All of us need Him and need His provision

If you search under heaven, there is no vision


Friend, There is Good News

That overcomes Bad News

No man who can pay his dues

But the one Man Jesus Christ.

Yes there is Good News

If your life you would lose

To gain life eternal

In the One Man Jesus Christ.


I had there deep inside of me a principle of sin

I put forth a false image of what was true within

I knew no good resided there but I hid my disease

Until God opened up my eyes to the truth that frees.


Friend, There is Good News

That overcomes Bad News

No man who can pay his dues

But the one Man Jesus Christ.

Yes there is Good News

If your life you would lose

To gain life eternal

In the Savior Jesus Christ.


If you confess Him as Lord

Repent and be saved

Friend you cannot afford

To cling to the grave


Friend, There is Good News

That overcomes Bad News

No man who can pay his dues

But the one Man Jesus Christ.

Yes there is Good News

If your life you would lose

To gain life eternal

In the Savior Jesus Christ.

There But For the Grace of God


There is none righteous there is none holy

There is none who seeks for God solely

We are born sinners lost in transgression

All our iniquities call us to confession


I see it everywhere I go, folks lost in fantasy

Pursuing ease and comfort and thinking they are free

While all the time they’re dead in sin with no hope in sight

Pleased to wander in the dark and running from the light


There but for the grace of God go I

There but for the grace of God go I


Nobody’s perfect, we all need a Savior

We all feel sin’s effect, in need of God’s favor

Made in God’s image, that image is broken

There’s but a vestige, but there’s a word He has spoken

The lost and the lonely, the damaged and undone

Come to the Father , you fallen forsaken son, 


There but for the grace of God go I

There but for the grace of God go I


Bridge

Wondering  who will bleed for the callous and corrupt

We all have the same need, we are ruined and bankrupt


There but for the grace of God go I

There but for the grace of God go I


Self pity and self pride, and selfish ambition

The self cannot be denied, that’s our condition 

Self righteousness rules men and self pity assails

Self love yields a bitter end,  And self sufficiency fails


There but for the grace of God go I

There but for the grace of God go I

There but for the grace of God go I

May Christ be Magnified


In  Christ we live and move and have our being

In Christ we give to prove the  faith the world is seeing

Lord, may we by our living

May we by our moving

May we by our being

See Christ be magnified


In Christ we have a more sure hope than the world can give

In Christ we have the means to cope and the means to live

So may we by our hoping

May we by our giving

Even by our coping

See Christ be Magnified.


We want to see you maginified in  our lives Lord, 

We want to show you as the worthy one to be adored

We want the world to see the grace of God can’t be ignored

So we will live our lives

We will give our lives

As a living sacrifice of praise outpoured


In Christ we have abundant life, a gift for us to live

In Christ we have unending love, that we must learn to give

So even in our giving, 

May we in our loving

May we in our living

May Christ be magnified

May Christ be magnified.

Oh Lord God

Oh Lord God, you are the only savior

Oh Lord God, We rest within your favor

You are calling

We are following

Oh Lord GOD.


Shepherd King, you lead us and provide

Of Thee we sing, our teacher and our guide

Through this dark valley

The unseen we see

Oh Lord God


You are great and mighty Lord!

You alone are worthy to be adored

All our hopes and dreams are found in You!


Refuge, rock,

You make us and you break us

We’re your flock

And you will not forsake us

It is no true sacrifice

To gain the pearl of Great price

Oh Lord God


You are great and mighty Lord!

You alone are worthy to be adored

All our hopes and dreams are found in You!


Lord of Light

You show us what is true

Lord of Love

Oh Father we love You

We lift You high

You draw us nigh

Father God!

Oh Lord God

Oh Lord God!

Circumcise Our Hearts

Circumcise our hearts that we might love you

As in the resurrection of your Son we rest

In our hearts may no thing reign above You

Lord, lead us in the paths of righteousness.


For we are the people of the empty tomb

You have delivered us from certain doom

We are the promised of the One bridegroom

We are the people of the empty tomb.

Your resurrection power makes the weak man strong

Your resurrection power enables our song


Circumcise our hearts and then complete us

Circumcise our hearts that we might live

Separate us from the flesh that would cheat us

Of all the glorious blessings you will give


Bridge

Cut off from the power of death

Dead to sin, alive to Christ

We live and move with every breath

In the power of resurrection life!


Cut us off from the kingdoms of the worldly way

Separate us from desires of wood stubble and hay

Divide us from the darkness of this world’s decay

Raise us up from the grave into your glorious day

Give us faith to live in the light of the unseen

Show us what Your resurrection power means


For we are the people of the empty tomb

You have delivered us from certain doom

We are the promised of the One bridegroom

We are the people of the empty tomb.

Your resurrection power makes the weak man strong

Your resurrection power enables our song
