You are on page 1of 40

Come and stand before your maker

Full of wonder, full of fear;

Come behold his power and glory

Yet with confidence draw near,

For the one who holds the heavens

And commands the stars above

Is the God who bends to bless us

With an unrelenting love.


Rejoice!

Come and lift your hands

and raise your voice;

He is worthy of all praise,

Rejoice!

Sing the mercies of your King

And with trembling, rejoice.


We are children of the promise,

The beloved of the Lord.

Won with everlasting kindness,

Bought with sacrificial blood.

Bringing reconciliation

To a world that longs to know

The affections of a father

Who will never let them go.


Rejoice!

Come and lift your hands

and raise your voice;

He is worthy of all praise,

Rejoice!

Sing the mercies of your King

And with trembling, rejoice.


All our sickness, all our sorrows

Jesus carried up the hill.

He has walked this path before us,

He is walking with us still;

Turning tragedy to triumph,

Turning agony to praise,

There is blessing in the battle

So take heart and stand amazed.


Rejoice!

When you cry to Him,

He hears your voice.

He will wipe away your tears.

Rejoice!

In the midst of suffering,

He will help You sing:


Rejoice!

Come and lift your hands

and raise your voice;

He is worthy of all praise,

Rejoice!

Sing the mercies of your King

And with trembling, rejoice.


Come and Stand Before Your Maker (Rejoice)

Come praise and glorify our God

The Father of our Lord

In Christ He has in heav’nly realms

His blessings on us poured

For pure and blameless in His sight

He destined us to be

And now we’ve been

adopted through

His Son eternally


To the praise of Your glory

To the praise

of Your mercy and grace

To the praise of Your glory

You are the God who saves


Come praise and glorify our God

Who gives His grace in Christ

In Him our sins are washed away

Redeemed through sacrifice

In Him God has made known to us

The myst’ry of His will

That Christ should

be the head of all

His purpose to fulfill


To the praise of Your glory

To the praise

of Your mercy and grace

To the praise of Your glory

You are the God who saves


Come praise and glorify our God

For we’ve believed the Word

And through our faith

we have a seal

The Spirit of the Lord

The Spirit guarantees our hope

Until redemption’s done

Until we join in endless praise

To God, the Three in One


To the praise of Your glory

To the praise

of Your mercy and grace

To the praise of Your glory

You are the God who saves


To the praise of Your glory

To the praise

of Your mercy and grace

To the praise of Your glory

You are the God who saves

Come Praise and Glorify

I’m pressing on the upward way,

New heights I’m gaining every day;

Still praying as I’m onward bound,

“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.


My heart has no desire to stay

Where doubts arise and fears dismay;

Though some may dwell

where those abound,

My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.


I want to scale the utmost height

And catch a gleam of glory bright;

But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found,

“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”


Lord, lift me up and let me stand,

By faith, on Heaven’s tableland,

A higher plane than I have found;

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.


Lord, lift me up

Lord, let me stand

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground


Higher Ground

Christ the sure and steady anchor,

In the fury of the storm;

When the winds of doubt

blow through me,

And my sails have all been torn.

In the suffering, in the sorrow,

When my sinking hopes are few;

I will hold fast to the anchor,

It will never be removed.


Christ the sure and steady anchor,

While the tempest rages on;

When temptation claims the battle,

And it seems the night has won.

Deeper still then goes the anchor,

Though I justly stand accused;

I will hold fast to the anchor,

It shall never be removed.


Christ the sure and steady anchor,

Through the floods of unbelief;

Hopeless somehow, O my soul, now,

Lift your eyes to Calvary.

This my ballast of assurance,

See his love forever proved.

I will hold fast to the anchor,

It will never be removed.


Christ the sure and steady anchor,

As we face the wave of death;

When these trials give way to glory,

As we draw our final breath.

We will cross that great horizon,

Clouds behind and life secure;

And the calm will be the better,

For the storms that we endure.


Christ the sure of our salvation,

Ever faithful, ever true!

We will hold fast to the anchor,

It shall never be removed.


Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor

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.

How firm a foundation, 

ye saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith 

in His excellent Word!

What more can He say 

than to you He has said,

To you who for refuge 

to Jesus have fled?
“Fear not! I am with thee; 

O be not dismayed,

For I am thy God 

and will still give thee aid.

I’ll strengthen and help thee,

and cause thee to stand,

Upheld by My righteous, 

omnipotent hand.”
“When through the deep waters

I call thee to go,

The rivers of sorrow

Shall not overflow;

For I will be with thee,

Thy troubles to bless,

And sanctify to thee

Thy deepest distress.”


“When through fiery trials 

thy pathways shall lie,

My grace, all sufficient, 

shall be thy supply.

The flame shall not hurt thee; 

I only design

Thy dross to consume 

and thy gold to refine.”
“The soul that on Jesus 

has leaned for repose;

I will not, I will not desert to his foes.

That soul, though all hell 

should endeavor to shake,

I’ll never, no never, no never forsake! 


How Firm a Foundation
