PRAISE HIM! PRAISE HIM!
1 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Sing, O earth—his wonderful love proclaim!
Hail him! hail him! highest archangels in glory,
strength and honour give to his holy name!
Like a shepherd Jesus will guard his children—
in his arms he carries them all day long:

Praise him! praise him! tell of his excellent greatness!
Praise him! praise him! ever in joyful song!

2 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
For our sins he suffered and bled and died;
he our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
hail him! hail him! Jesus the crucified.
Sound his praises—Jesus who bore our sorrows—
love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong:

Praise him! praise him! tell of his excellent greatness!
Praise him! praise him! ever in joyful song!

3 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring!
Jesus, Saviour, reigneth forever and ever,
crown him! crown him! Prophet and Priest and King!
Christ is coming, over the world victorious—
pow’r and glory unto the Lord belong:

Praise him! praise him! tell of his excellent greatness!
Praise him! praise him! ever in joyful song!

SALVATION BELONGS TO OUR GOD
1 Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and unto the Lamb.

Praise and glory, wisdom and thanks,
honour and power and strength
be to our God forever and ever,
be to our God forever and ever,
be to our God forever and ever, amen.

2 And we, the redeemed, shall be strong
in purpose and unity,
declaring aloud:

Praise and glory, wisdom and thanks,
honour and power and strength
be to our God forever and ever,
be to our God forever and ever,
be to our God forever and ever, amen.

AMAZING LOVE (MY LORD WHAT LOVE IS THIS?)
1 My Lord, what love is this that pays so dearly,
that I, the guilty one, may go free!

Amazing love! O what sacrifice,
the Son of God given for me!
My debt he pays and my death he dies
that I might live, that I might live.

2 And so they watched him die, despised, rejected.
But O, the blood he shed flowed for me!

Amazing love! O what sacrifice,
the Son of God given for me!
My debt he pays and my death he dies
that I might live, that I might live.

3 And now this love of Christ shall flow like rivers.
Come wash your guilt away, live again!

Amazing love! O what sacrifice,
the Son of God given for me!
My debt he pays and my death he dies
that I might live, that I might live.

JESUS, I MY CROSS HAVE TAKEN
1 Jesus, I my cross have taken,
all to leave and follow you;
Son of man, despised, forsaken,
Lord of all I am or do.
Perish every fond ambition,
all I’ve sought and hoped and known;
yet how rich is my condition!
God and heav’n are still my own.

2 Let the world despise and leave me,
they have left my Saviour, too;
human hearts and looks deceive me;
you are not, like them, untrue.
And, while you shall smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love and might,
foes may hate, and friends may shun me;
show your face, and all is bright.

3 Those who trouble and distress me
drive me to your presence blessed;
life with bitter trials may press me,
heav’n will bring me sweeter rest.
How could grief or sorrow harm me,
while my heart still feels your love?
How could this world’s pleasures charm me,
when you are my joy above?

4 Take, my soul, his full salvation:
Conquer every sin and care,
find in every situation
joy and peace and service there.
Think what Spirit dwells within you,
what a Father loves you yet,
what a Saviour died to win you:
Child of heav’n, why should you fret?

5 Onward, then, from grace to glory,
armed by faith and spurred by prayer;
heav’ns eternal day’s before me;
God’s own hand shall guide me there.
Soon shall close my earthly mission,
swiftly pass my pilgrim days,
hope soon change to glad fruition,
faith to sight, and prayer to praise.

ALL I HAVE IS CHRIST
1 I once was lost in darkest night,
yet thought I knew the way—
the sin that promised joy and life
had led me to the grave.
I had no hope that you would own
a rebel to your will,
and if you had not loved me first
I would refuse you still.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.

2 But as I ran my hell-bound race,
indifferent to the cost,
you looked upon my helpless state
and led me to the cross.
And I beheld God’s love displayed:
You suffered in my place;
you bore the wrath reserved for me,
now all I know is grace.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.

3 Now, Lord, I would be yours alone,
and live so all might see
the strength to follow your commands
could never come from me.
Oh, Father, use my ransomed life
in any way you choose,
and let my song forever be
my only boast is you.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.
