1. You are my strength, You are my song You have become my salvation You are my God I will praise you in song You delight me oh sweet myst'ry. Chorus: You are good your love endures forever, You are good your love endures forever. 2. I'll tell of your wonders with joy and be glad Your justice is perfect unending GA I'll praise your name, Oh most high For you never forsake those who seek you. 3. You are a refuge for all the oppressed Your mercy a great sanctuary GA Great sacrifice for us that you made Has purchased our lives set us free.

1. My heart is full of discontent your precepts I ignore. And yet you gave your very life, brought me to heavens shore. A I'm fighting you for power, my life I wish to guide. And yet you gave your only son on Calvary's tree you died. Refrain 1 In repentance you draw nigh, Sweet forgiveness from on high. It is finished your last sigh, Sweet forgiveness from on high. 2. I fail to love my neighbor I have no love to give. And yet Christ suffered on a cross, he died that I may live. There's nothing in me righteous, there's nothing good in me. O Lord please enter in my heart Your love can set me free. Refrain 2 In repentance you draw nigh, Sweet forgiveness from on high. Freedom from all sin and strife, I will love you all my life.

1. Oh Lord I canʼt see you But my heart knows that you are good C You are my rock to stand on And my heart knows you have saved me Refrain Still my heart cries out O why do you forsake me Why don't you rescue me from my dark, dark heart 2. Oh Father I can't feel you For I am so far from holiness and holy is what you are 3. Oh God I can't hear you But my heart knows you have loved me So I just can't understand Why there is no love inside me.

1. We are learning to listen Open our hearts and open our ears We're longing to know you. (repeat) Refrain Come and listen all you who fear the Lord. We will listen for the peace our God affords. For He promises faithfulness, For He promises righteousness in His Word. 2. We confess the distractions, Things of the world that drown out your voice We so long to hear from.

1. Taken from the fiery flames Washed so clean in his name Eat this bread and take this cup Sacrifice you gave in love Chorus What can I do to serve you Father Now that you've blest us, now that you've blest us What can I do to serve you Father Now that you've blest us here 2. Blessings givʼn so gen'rously Love of the Father grace so sweet Consecration jubillee To your will I freely give

1. Let it be that we praise the Lord. He is mighty He is wondrous. Let it be that we praise our Lord. He's eternal, he's immutable. Chorus Three in one we praise our God, Three in one we sing our faith, Three in one we hold as creed - The mystery of the Trinity. 2. Let it be that we praise the Son, He is fully man, he is fully God. Let it be that we praise the Word. He is risen, he is ruling. 3. Let it be that we praise the Spir't. Who is moving, who is holy. Let it be that we praise the Ghost Who is with us, who indwells us. Bridge Let us give to the Three in One, All the glory, and the honor.
