Lyrics

1 Sea to Sea
May he reign from sea to sea... Psalm 72:8 NLT

Saviour King, you are Son of Man and Son of
God, our Friend, you are God with us who reigns on high
King of Kings, all the earth will bow before you
Lord of lords, we will worship you forever
And honour you, and praise your name
From sea to sea, we will stand and sing
From shore to shore, all creation will adore
Our Father, our Saviour, our King
From sea to sea we’ll sing
Counsellor, you heal the sick and broken
Prince of Peace, you hear the cries of hungry hearts
Holy God, help us see each other with your
Love and Grace, we will glorify your holiness,
And power, and majesty
Hear our cries, Lord, open hearts and hands
Give us love, Lord, unite our hearts to sing your praise

2 O Most High (Psalm 9)

I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High. Psalm9:2 NLT

I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart
I will rejoice in you and I will be glad
I will sing your praise, I will sing to your Name
O Most High – you reign forever
O Most High you judge in righteousness
O Most High, O Most High
Those who know your name will trust in you
For you’d never forsake those who seek you
I will sing your praise, I will sing to your Name
I sing praises to your name; I sing praises to my King
You are God Most High, you are above all things

3 You Alone are God (Psalm 86) 

For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God. Psalm 86:10 NLT

Teach me your way, O Lord and I will walk in your truth
Give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name
I will praise you, O Lord, my God
With all my heart, I will glorify your name forever
So great is your faithfulness, you alone are God
All of the nations you’ve made will come and worship you
They will bring glory to your name for you alone are God
There is no one like you, no deeds compare with yours
You’re abounding in love, you alone are God

4 Grace Flow
But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. Acts 20:24 NLT

I love your ways, I love your name, let your love grow, let your grace flow
Open my eyes, open my hands, let your love grow, let your grace flow
Here am I, send me – your love is capturing me
Grace like an ocean flowing over my brokenness
Open my heart, open my mind, let your love grow, let your grace flow
Take all my fear, take all my pride, let your love grow, let your grace flow
All that I need I find in you, all that is broken, you make new
You breathe your life into me, you complete me

5 Holy
Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God. Psalm 90:2 NLT

You are God. What have I to say? Holy...
You are King. What have I to bring? Praises...
In all humility, O let me come and be still in the presence of God
Open my eyes to see your power and love for me - I lift up my hands to my God

6 Love Conquers All

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. 1 John 4:16 NLT

Battles around us, wars within - it’s so hard to hear the truth
Empower us with your loving might; help us fight the good fight
Smaller than you made us to be, we try to build our defence
Weaker for all our boundaries, strength comes on our knees
We want to know you more; we want to share your sorrow
We long for peace to reign and love to conquer all, may your love conquer all
Here in the ashes, clothed in rags, we have been playing games
You’ve called us up out of the gloom, into your throne room
Distracted and empty, we follow anyone but you
Pierce the centre of our confusion, come, come change us!
Open our hearts to know your grace, help us receive your love
Break down the walls of fear and pride, change us from the inside

7 Meet Me Here
But as for me, I am poor and needy; please hurry to my aid, O God. You are my helper and my saviour; O Lord, do not delay. Psalm 70:5 NLT

Tired of striving and wasting time, I’m broken, wounded and empty
No more pretending I’m more than this - you know my weakness and frailty
I’m finally here, I see my need and this is all I want: Your heart in mine, my hand in yours
Oh that I would disappear, that your glory would meet me here
How could I think that I could be well and whole without you?
You are the source of my love, my life - all that is good within me
Oh, I’ve been waiting for you, but now I finally see
Looking back through my life, you were waiting for me
Breathe on this clay and fill me up with joy and love overflowing
Teach me your song and I will dance - all of my days I’ll be singing

8 Be to Our God

But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 NLT

“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen.” Revelation 7:12 NLT

Father, I come to lay my sins on the spotless Lamb of God
He bears them all, and he washes me whiter than the driven snow
All praises, all honour, all glory is yours
All power, all wisdom be to our God
Father I come, and place my hand in the hand pierced by a nail
I bring all my fear, all my hurt and grief; he brings healing and release
Father I come to offer praise to my Saviour, Friend and King
He set me free and he makes me sing songs of life and hope and peace

9 Please Don’t Wait

O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name." Daniel 9:19 NIV

But Lord, be merciful to us, for we have waited for you. Be our strong arm each day and our salvation in times of trouble. Isaiah 33:2 NLT

Feels like foolishness to believe, that you’ve seen and know what we need Have you heard our heart’s cry all along, when we’ve been aching for so long?
O Lord, heal! O Lord, forgive!
O Lord, won’t you hear and act?
Please don’t wait! Please don’t wait!
Hope is draining everyday, and we all face a different way.
Standing still, we try to find the path, but the only key is just beyond our grasp.
We know you’re good, we know you’re strong
We know you hear us and you have a plan
But we wonder how, we’re asking when
We don’t know why we just can’t see your hand
No one knows what can be done; no one can say what’s still to come.
You are all we have to hold on to - at last we know that we must wait for you
O Lord, we’re waiting for you

10 Redeemed

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1b NIV

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1 NIV

I was lost, but I’ve been found; brought to the right road, set on solid ground.
I was broken, and now I’m whole. My wounds are mending, and there’s a peace in my soul
Now I am redeemed, I’m washed and I’m cleaned
I stand free in mercy, I’m walking in peace
I sat in darkness, now I’m squinting in light - it shows all the beauty I’ve missed in my life
I was afraid, but now I know I have the power of heaven behind and before
Although I have questions and suffer sometimes
Love always finds me before my tears have dried
I cannot keep silent, I can’t hold it in - I have hope, love and comfort instead of my sin
What is this mystery? What is my hope? My hand is in Jesus’ and we’re walking home
My hand is in Jesus’ and I’m walking home

11 Resting In Love

Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders." Deuteronomy 33:12 NIV

Take my heart, take my will, draw me closer until I’m resting in love
Help me seek your face, tune my heart to sing praise, then I’ll rest in your love
Hallelujah, rejoice, Praise Him with a loud voice, bless the Lord, my soul
Hallelujah, Amen I’m overwhelmed again, I’m resting in love
I won’t believe the lies - I’m not alone or despised – I’m resting in love
I reach my hands up to you, the source of all that is true, I’m resting in love
You are my rock, You are my God, my hope, and my peace
You make me free, and I’ll always be surrounded by love
