Be Our Peace

Strangers to your promise, 

Orphans with no home;

Separated from each other, 

All of us, alone.

Hearts so full of hatred, 

Mouths so full of lies;

We cannot see for fighting,

We’ve blackened all our eyes.

Be our peace, O Christ;

By your blood, bring us near.

Be our peace, O Christ;

Perfect Love, drive out fear.

Divided and at odds, 

Hostility in our plans—

O come, O Jesus come 

With healing in your hands.

Destroy the walls of pride, 

The hubris in our hearts;

In you we will be one, 

And no more be apart.

Be our peace, O Christ;

By your blood, bring us near.

Be our peace, O Christ;

Perfect Love, drive out fear.

Do not leave us to ourselves 

Or surely we will come undone;

Bring us reconciliation, 

In your cross now make us one!

Here we have a firm foundation, 

You will be our cornerstone.

Only you can end our hatred, 

Jesus, you and you alone!

Be our peace, O Christ;

By your blood, bring us near.

Be our peace, O Christ; 

Perfect Love, drive out fear.

Christ, Of All My Hopes the Ground

Christ, of all my hopes the ground, 

Christ, the spring of all my joy,

Still in you may I be found, 

Still for you my pow'rs employ,

Still for you my pow'rs employ.

Let your love my heart inflame; 

Keep your fear before my sight;

Be your praise my highest aim; 

Your glory my chief delight,

Your glory my chief delight.

Fountain of o'erflowing grace, 

Freely from your fullness give;

Till I close my earthly race, 

May I prove it "Christ to live,"

May I prove it "Christ to live.”

Firmly trusting in your blood, 

Nothing shall my heart confound

Safely I shall pass the flood, 

Safely reach Immanuel's ground,

Safely reach Immanuel’s ground.

When my last breath comes to give 

And my body down I lie

Having known it "Christ to live,” 

Let me know it "gain to die,"

Let me know it "gain to die.”

My Soul In Silence Waits For God

My soul in silence waits for God,   

My Savior He has proved;

He only is my Rock and Tower;     

I never shall be moved.

My honor is secure with God,  

My Savior He is known;

My Refuge and my Rock of strength    

Are found in God alone.


O my soul, my soul    

In silence waits for God

O my soul, my soul    

In silence waits for God


My enemies my ruin seek,   

They plot with fraud and guile;

Deceitful, they pretend to bless,    

But inwardly revile.

My soul in silence waits for God,    

He is my help approved;

He only is my Rock and Tower,  

And I shall not be moved.


O my soul, my soul    

In silence waits for God

O my soul, my soul    

In silence waits for God


On Him, ye people, evermore  

Rely with confidence;

Before Him pour ye out your heart,  

For God is our defense.

For God has spoken o’er and o’er, 

And unto us has shown,

That saving power and lasting strength 

Belong to Him alone.

O my soul, my soul    

In silence waits for God

O my soul, my soul    

In silence waits for God

My soul in silence waits for God,   

My Savior He has proved;

He only is my Rock and Tower;     

I never shall be moved.

Into the Darkness (The Word became Flesh)

Into the darkness and into our pain
Into the suffering so blinding 
It threatens to drive us insane
Into the wasteland of our loneliness 

The Word became flesh 

Into this petty and self-righteous game 
Into our constant refusal 
To stop and accept any blame 
Into the hatred and rage we caress 

The Word became flesh 
The Word became flesh

Into the darkness and into our pain
Into the suffering so blinding 
It threatens to drive us insane
Into the wasteland of our loneliness

Into this petty and self-righteous game 
Into our constant refusal 
To stop and accept any blame 
Into the hatred and rage we caress 

The Word became flesh 
The Word became flesh

What kind of King
Comes down from his throne, 
Takes all this heartache
And makes it his own?
What kind of King
Comes down from his throne, 
Takes all these tears
And makes them his own?

Comes down from his throne, 
Takes all this suffering
And makes it his own?
What kind of King
Comes down from his throne, 
Takes all these sorrows
And makes them his own?

Sing, You Daughter Of The King

Sing, you daughter of the King,
Let your joyful praises ring!
See, He comes humbled now,
And before Him all things bow.
He has come to bring you peace,
He who rules from sea to sea.
To the ends of the earth,
Sing His praise — Sing His praise
Sing His praise — Sing His praise

He will set the pris’ner free,
Give you strength, bring victory.
He, our King, is your hope,
Ruling all, so broad His scope;
Lightning from His arrow flies
He has heard His people’s cries.
Trumpets sound for the King,
Sing His praise — Sing His praise
Sing His praise — Sing His praise

He will save you by His hand;
Shining there throughout His land,
Precious jewels in His crown
Are His people all around.
See how awesome is our God,
And His righteousness applaud;
Sing His praise, O child of God,
Sing His praise — Sing His praise
Sing His praise — Sing His praise

We Will Say In That Day

You will see there a highway from God’s own hand 
That will lead back the lost to the Promised Land; 
And the voice of the Savior will call us friends, 
Saying, “Join in the song of the Lord!” 

We will call back our armies: “Return from war!” 
And we’ll make into plowshares our useless swords, 
Very soon to for-get what they once were for, 
When we join in the song of the Lord! 

We will say in that day, “To the Lord, give thanks!” 
We will not be afraid, for He comes to save. 
We will shout; we will call every tribe and race, 
“Come and join in the song of the Lord!” 


You will see there a banquet for sinners spread, 
Where we’ll sit with the Lord at the table’s head; 
And our Shepherd himself is our wine and bread. 
And we’ll join in the song of the Lord! 

When the remnant return to the promised land; 
When the highway of God brings us home to Him; 
We’ll be welcomed with love by our Savior friend; 
And we’ll join in the song of the Lord!

All We Have is Yours

We give you but your own 

In anything we bring;

All that we have is yours alone, 

A gift from you, our King—

A gift from you, our King.

May we your bounties thus 

As stewards true receive,

And gladly, Lord, as you bless us, 

To give and now believe—

Everything is from your hand

And all we have is yours.

What can we give you have not given first?

For all we have is yours—

Like shadows only flee.

What is our joy? What is our mirth,

If we, your face don’t see?

No matter what we do, 

No matter what we gain,

The glory, Lord, is yours alone; 

we praise your holy name,

We praise your holy name! 

Everything is from your hand

And all we have is yours.

What can we give you have not given first?

For all we have is yours—

All we have is yours.

The power and glory,

The victory and majesty.

For all in the heavens 

And all in the earth 

Are under your sovereignty.

And all we have is yours—

All we have is yours.

Daughter of Zion

Daughter of Zion, awake from your sadness;

Awake, for your foes shall oppress you no more.

Bright, o'er the hills, see the day star of gladness,

Arise, for the night of your sorrow is over.

Strong were your foes; but the arm that subdued them,

And scattered their legions, was mightier by far;

They fled like the chaff from the scourge that pursued them;

In vain were their steeds and their chariots of war.

Daughter of Zion, 

Awake from your sadness;

Awake, awake, awake, 

For your foes shall oppress you no more.

Daughter of Zion, your cries, they have all been heard 

The Lord, he has come, and with you ever shall be;

Shout: for the foe is destroyed by just his word;

Th’ oppressor is vanquished, and you are now free. 

Daughter of Zion, 

Awake from your sadness;

Awake, awake, awake, 

For your foes shall oppress you no more.

For behold, he will come, 

He will dwell, he will feast 

With you, his beloved,

O daughter of Zion.

Though kings destroy and rule your land

Like rivers flowing in God’s hand

He still commands and bends their will

The God of heaven rules them still

As He has healed the hearts of men 

He will restore His house again

And there He’ll give to you shalom

The God of heaven brings you home

He brings you home, he brings you home

There all His glory will be shown 

To those by whom His Name is known

And then in song, with hearts ablaze

The God of heaven you will praise

You will praise, you will praise

You Will Be Mine

Stubborn and full of pride

My affection you refused

Took for granted all I gave you

Every kindness you abused 

Still I long for you 

Even in anger and sorrow I long for you

Tell me my fault, my wrong

Did I forget my vow? 

If I forsook my love,

Let the record show it now

Still I long for you 

Even in anger and sorrow I long for you

With all my heart, with all my soul 

I will restore and make you whole 

Though you would run time after time 

I will be yours and you will be mine

You will be mine

You will be mine

O lover I beg of you

Won’t you turn from foolish ways?  

Again I’ll make you secure

Give you safety all your days.

How I long for you

Even though scorned and hated I long for you

With all my heart, with all my soul 

I will restore and make you whole 

Though you would run time after time 

I will be yours and you will be mine

You will be mine

You will be mine

Fields will thrive again, I’ll bring you home 

Cities will rise again, I’ll bring you home 

Know my love again, I’ll bring you home

Sing to me again, I’ll bring you home 

With all my heart, with all my soul 

I will restore and make you whole 

Though you would run time after time 

I will be yours and you will be mine, 

You will be mine

In the dark and mournful day, 

When earth’s riches flee away,

And the last hope will not stay—

Savior, comfort me!

When the secret idol’s gone 

That my poor heart yearned upon,

Desolate, bereft, alone— 

Savior, comfort me!

Let me know you love no less,

Help me trust your faithfulness— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Savior, comfort me!

So it shall be good for me, 

Much afflicted now to be, 

If you will but tenderly— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Jesus, you were sorely tried, 

In the darkness crucified,

O what strength to be my guide! 

Savior, comfort me!

In the hour of sad distress, 

Let me know you love no less,

Help me trust your faithfulness— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Savior, comfort me!

Inside My Heart

I have felt it ever growing—

Hell inside my heart,

Always grumbling, blaming others—

Wishing it could stop.

Losing mercy, slow compassion,

Needing to be right,

Hypocritical foundations

Reinforced with spite.

Father, write your word in piercing

flames upon my heart;

Stake your claim inside of me, 

and never there depart.

Jesus, for my sin atoning,

Lately lost on me;

Holy Spirit, ever working,

I refuse to see:

Trusting in my worldly riches,

Clinging to myself,

Constant self-imposed salvation,

Seeking hell itself.

Father, write your word in piercing

flames upon my heart;

Stake your claim inside of me, 

and never there depart.

Cure this wretched mind, its selfish

plans to wholly fail;

Rip this hell right out of me,

and let me live again!

You Called

You called, I ran from you, my Lord, 

For I would not trust in your word.

Still from the sea my life you saved, 

And brought me out of death’s dark grave

You called, they turned to you, O God 

And by your mercy they were awed;

You spared their lives in your great grace, 

And now they bow before your face.

O make my heart like yours

And break my heart like yours, 

O make my heart like yours 

I watch and wait for them to die  

Beneath your shade, I moan and sigh

At all the love to them bestowed  

For I thought it, to me, was owed.

O make my heart like yours

And break my heart like yours, 

O make my heart like yours 

My anger, Lord, at you is sin, 

For mercy from you none can win;

And mercy to them I must show  

For to my God my all I owe! 

O make my heart like yours

And break my heart like yours, 

O make my heart like yours
